We’ve really been put through the ringer with the weather this week but the next few days are going to be lovely by comparison! So by mere virtue of surviving to this point, give yourselves a pat on the back, and go see people playing guitars.
And suddenly we’re hurtling towards mid-October. Whilst Halloween edges nearer, there’s nothing horrific about the quality of options bestowed upon you this weekend – although I won’t blame you if you just want to stay in and watch horror movies instead, ’tis the season!
I was a big fan of Molly Burch‘s 2017 debut album, Please Be Mine, calling it an effortlessly smooth collection of ten tracks. Her follow-up, First Flower, is out this Friday (the 5th) again via Captured Tracks. The record is as impeccable and immaculate as her debut, but there is so much more confidence in the material that really […]
This Monday, be sure to swing by Rough Trade in Williamsburg for the book release party of Burning Down the Haus: Punk Rock, Revolution, and the Fall of the Berlin Wall. The book chronicles the East Berlin punk movement of the late 70s and 80s, leading up to the fall of the Berlin Wall. In addition […]
We’re well into free-summer-shows season, and they make up three of your options below, so after you’ve finished watching some World Cup matches or eaten some nachos (why not both?), you’ve got some great options.

I’m not just talking about the actual reality of things getting better over time (despite what it may seem like), […]
This is probably the best weekends-worth of shows all year, so you should probably stop reading at this point and make your plans, if you haven’t missed the boat already.
Last Easter I got so drunk that I loudly, and in detail, broadcasted to the L train all of the unsavory things I wanted to do to my boyfriend when we got home. He tells me (because I don’t remember shit) that we were standing right in front of a well-dressed family on their way […]
Greetings and welcome to the first “Top 5 shows of the weekend” of 2018! It has been a slow start to the year, but that’s about to change for the better. We’ve been looking forward to a couple of these ones in particular for quite some time and it’s not supposed to get below freezing […]
