In a week dominated by inhumane actions stemmed from our wannabe-dictator of a president, it’s pretty hard to come up with any kind of intro to this weekend’s choice selection of shows… but whether you’re just looking to switch your brain off or a reward for fighting a good cause, it’s important to take stock […]
So glad we got to spring forward into this glorious weather we’ve been having. If you want to avoid all the St Patrick’s Day nonsense (why people think this is any better than Santacon I don’t know…), here are a few chances to avoid people pretending to be Irish, leprachauns, or generally broing out.
Another week down, another week of depressing Trump-related theocratic idiocy, at least there are a few fun things to do this weekend in amongst the necessary protests and rallies. Thanks to Peter for stepping in last week, I can say that doing a 70-hour working week with a fever is not terribly fun, but is […]
Remember all those mean things I said about August last week–how the pickings were slim, there weren’t many shows, and so on? Well I take it all back. This week makes up for it and then some, so let’s thank the almighty law of averages and get on with it.
It’s going to be a hot one this weekend. Drink responsibly, use sunscreen and maybe, just maybe, some good shows will be able to make us forget we’re melting, just for a few brief moments. There are plenty of indoor and outdoor options for you below.
No reason for wanton circumlocution this week, we’re going to get right down to it. Have a great weekend, everyone, hopefully enhanced by the fine options below. 5) Bambara, Ritual Humor, One Prayer One Sin, Decorum at ALPHAVILLE While Bambara have been bashing out distorted, Birthday Party-esque noise for half a decade, the band’s latest offering, Swarm, […]
Today is St Patrick’s Day… fantastic… now everyone in the city who ever saw a picture of a four leaf clover or had a pint of Guinness is apparently Irish. I might just curl up in a ball and hide, but that would be a mistake, because if you can avoid all the green pavement pizzas […]
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 […]
This is the first weekend in which David Bowie no longer exists (and now, also tragically, Alan Rickman); still a hard concept to process. As the great man said, “I know when to go out, and when to stay in”, might I suggest the former this weekend. I’m not giving you much chance to put on your […]
Greetings. Let’s start off by reveling in Run the Jewel’s performance on Colbert this week (with TV On the Radio as their backing band, no less). Good, now we can move on with our weekend plans. Because “American” football season has just started, I tried to catch some actual football too and saw NYCF vs Toronto last night. Sure, […]
