Recent 4AD signing Merchandise played Glasslands and Saint Vitus over the weekend. You have another chance to catch the Floridian 80′s style shoe gaze-psych-weirdos on Wednesday 6/25 at the Nothing Changes party at Home Sweet Home (131 Chrystie Street in Manhattan). Doors for that show are at 10pm. The band goes on at midnight. Check out their latest promo video below as well as their full set from Saint Vitus.

Merchandise – Little Killer
Four days. 50 venues. 350 bands. It’s Northside Festival again, or, as we call it, the most wonderful time of the year, and if you weren’t paying close attention to the local blogwaves, then you might not have even realized it was happening on your doorstep. Unlike spectacle-heavy music fests like Governors Ball and Electric Zoo, Northside, now the borough’s biggest music festival, has remained organic, exploding within Williamsburg, Greenpoint, and Bushwick’s best (and gloriously air conditioned) venues—as well its selection of epic outdoor options—as if it were just another summer weekend in Brooklyn. Of course, as any Northside Music Festival vet can tell you, the brain-boiling array of talent makes this one anything but average, with the likes of Titus Andronicus, The War on Drugs, Ratking, Fuck Buttons, Perfect Pussy, Marissa Nadler, Watain, and more set to take our beloved stages come Thursday. So grab your badges and gather round as we rundown our favorite shows of the weekend ahead.
Stage dive- and mosh pit friendly shoegazers Nothing played a sold out show at Saint Vitus in Greenpoint last night. Celebrating the release of their debut album “Guilty of Everything” on Relapse Records, the Philly quartet played most of the new record. However, they closed out the night with a song from a musical era that heavily influenced them. Watch Nothing re-imagining Nirvana’s classic “Sliver” below, alongside a couple of their own 120Minutes worshipping cuts.
Nothing – Endlessly
Prolific instrumental post rockers Russian Circles stopped by for two sold out shows at Bowery Ballroom and Saint Vitus. Below is a video of the complete Brooklyn set.
