Welcome to fall release season, everyone. Just when you thought things couldn’t possibly get any crazier, we went and turned this roving carnival into a full-blown asylum. You can check out anytime you like, but you can never leave.
Alright everyone, settle in and savor this one, because not only is there a Costco-sized of new sonic insanity on tap, but it’s also the last you’re going to get for a fortnight on account of my upcoming “summer vacation” (if you want call a long weekend in Cooperstown such a thing). Apologies in advance […]
It sure looks like it. Sleater-Kinney have been posting pictures of venues to their Facebook page today, including the above photo of famed DIY venue Market Hotel (!!). It first came to my attention when I saw several people associated with the venue sharing the image on the aforementioned social media platform, which could mean […]
Fun for all the family, They Might Be Giants play two matinee shows at Music Hall of Williamsburg on the 28th of June, the first set (info) is at 12:30pm and the second (info) follows at 3:30pm. The event description sums up what will happen perfectly: Like unicorns, a They Might Be Giants kids show […]
While Memorial Day marks the unofficial start of summer, there’s something about the Northside Festival that really feels like the season is truly kicking off. With hundreds of bands and a few dozen venues to consider on the music side of things, it can be overwhelming, so we’d like to offer some sincere recommendations; who […]
It’s felt like a low-key week so far to me, I haven’t even been to a single show and that doesn’t often happen. Maybe I’m just saving myself a little as I’ll be heading off to Levitation (FKA Austin Psych Fest) next week! Don’t forget to enter our competition and win a pair of tickets to […]
The weather looks like it should be pretty nice again this weekend, and yes the L train still sucks, but you can work around it. Remember to hit up the Numero pop-up store and load up on records. After enjoying the outdoors during the day, there are some fine evening options for you.
One of Oxford’s finest show that reunions are not just for cashcows going through the motions. After 18 years, I Wasn’t Born to Lose You sounds like the band never went away. Most reunion albums don’t capture the magic of how things were first time around, but Swervedriver have bucked that trend and then some. I’d put […]
It’s already been a fine week for gigs so far, with neo-classical being the order of things until now (reviews for A Winged Victory for the Sullen and Max Richter coming soon!), but it’s time to swap bowed instruments for guitars, and a bit of brass, with the weekend choices. 5) The Budos Band at […]
Well guys, holy [email protected], I survived Holy Ship. I mean, at least I think I did? I haven’t really settled back into the whole “reality” thing, which is why I’m typing this from a hotel bed in New Orleans, because WHY NOT? Life is for living right? And what better way to shirk responsibility and […]
