2016 was the dirt fucking worst. There’s no other way to put it. It seems almost absurd to talk about what a great year it was for music, in light of all of the terrible things that have happened, but music helped us cope a lot over the last twelve months. And serendipitously, a wealth […]
You spend half the year waiting for summer and then you go to the beach and get terrible sunburn that still hasn’t gone away 5 days later. I’m here to tell you that summer is awful and you should just stay within 4 walls and listen to some live bands instead.
Dilly ding, dilly dong. We can cut the smalltalk, you really have some great options this weekend and the likes of Chelsea Wolfe, Beverly, Waxahatchee and a Woods/Ultimate Painting double-header didn’t even make the cut. If you aren’t getting out to see a show, I’m not sure I can ever be any help.
As the great moral philosopher Blain said, “I ain’t got time to bleed”, and so we’re skipping pleasantries today to get right down to it, you have a weekend to enjoy, so here are my recommendations.
I’m still not sure if I thank Washington, Lincoln, both, or none, for the short work week, but here we are, it’s Thursday already. We’re not going to get record-breaking freezing temperatures or 2 feet of snowfall this weekend, so for those who have been hermits the last couple of weekends, this is especially for […]
There has been somewhat of a dry spell for shows recently, perhaps a post-CMJ hangover, but that gets completely turned around this weekend with 5 outstanding options, so be a decent human being and ignore all the far-too-early christmas decorations and go to some shows!
CMJ celebrate their 35th anniversary this year and have just announced their initial lineup for the ‘music marathon’. The festival runs from the 13th until the 17th of October, featuring hundreds of bands and showcases (see our thoughts on last year here). The full lineup (so far) can be seen on the official site here, […]
The last week has served as a reminder for the value of live music. I go to a lot of shows, but when you see something really mindblowing it just changes your mood for the better. I’m still riding on a high from seeing Follakzoid on Saturday and topped that up with the reliably brilliant […]
5) Daylight, Ratking, Young Male, and More at Europa Club Featuring pop punk, art-rap, and DIY techno, this Saturday night highlight at Europa Club—which, contrary to rumors, is still alive and well—is one of the most diverse bills of the weekend, and that’s before we even get to the laundry list of local DJs/party purveyors […]
Union Pool’s free Summer Thunder concert series has announced its lineups for July; and if you were impressed by their June bills, which includes the likes of Pissed Jeans, Liquor Store and Ex-Cult, then odds are you’ll be blown away by what they have in store for us next month: 07/05: Widowspeak 07/12: The Men / Survival / Mercury Rising 07/19: Obits 07/25: Jonathan Toubin + […]
