If the city happens to be getting you down, this is one of those weekends that remind you why you slog through every day, the options available to you are varied and outstanding. Here’s to keeping on keeping on.
August seems pretty quiet on the show-front but at least the weekends are still strong and we’re still very much in free-summer-concert season. Providing the weather can hold out there are plenty of reasons to be outside in the coming days, so switch your brain off and try to enjoy yourselves.
As enjoyable as CMJ is (see our review), being back on a more regular routine is highly comforting.

Read the rest of the interview over at Gothamist where Flansburgh discusses the band’s new album “Join Us“, Witch House and the Williamsburg Waterfront […]
I am pretty jealous of the handful of A.V. Club staffers who got the chance to sit in on, and scream along with, They Might Be Giants. The band picked from a short list of songs for the Undercover series, choosing to perform “Tubthumping” the late-’90s anthem to…drinking? Getting back up? It is an amazingly […]
A.V. Club has this series called Undercover where bands come in and choose from a master list of cover songs.
