The Most Blogged About Shows This Week

Real Estate

The reading on the Most Blogged About Shows This Week thermometer is clearly pointing to indie. From a Chinese buffet in Queens to the Allen Room at the Time Warner Center, kids in tight jeans will be enjoying some good music. Before we get into it though, we’d like to thank all of our readers who came out to My Social List’s first show at Shea Stadium last week. Ava Luna, Total Slacker, Caged Animals and Osekre & the Lucky Bastards all played thrilling sets to a totally packed audience

Speaking of Chinese buffets, Todd P has assembled a great show at K&K Supper Buffet on Saturday night. Real Estate, The Babies, Black Dice, Dogleather and DJ sets from Oneohtrix Point Never and Ducktails for $5? We’ll definitely be there.

He may have had a bit of a rough year, but Thurston Moore is performing as part of the American Songbook at the Allen Room on Thursday. If the Time Warner Center is too fancy (or expensive), you can check him out in Hoboken at Maxwell’s the next night.  With the status of Sonic Youth not completely clear, this may be turn out to be a great opportunity for his next big thing.

Finally, Glasslands continues to prove to be the best-booked venue in New York, with three shows on our top 10.  Check out The Hundred in the Hands tonight, Salva on Saturday and Megafortress on Tuesday. If you’re really ambitious, on Saturday you can sneak next door to 285 Kent to check out Blouse, Cosmetic, New Lines and Mosaic.
