Summer is officially here, and what better way to celebrate than with a daytime dance party in Brooklyn? Wolf + Lamb, Soul Clap and the other usual suspects from the beloved Crew Love Records collective will take Industry City revelers by storm next Saturday, June 29th. It’s going to a be groovy time, friends.
Lots of must-hears this week, so let’s get to the business of hearing them. Onward, downward, whatever. WHAT TO HEAR: Leading us off this week is Baroness, one of the few late-2000s sludge acts, along with Mastodon, still carrying the torch aloft. But a long time (and a lot of miles) have passed since the […]
Three years ago, Elements Lakewood Music Festival found its home at a Jewish sleep-away camp near the Poconos, and Memorial Day weekend hasn’t been the same since. Looking for a tall shot of nostalgia? BangOn!NYC‘s out of town gathering has the goods! Complete with cabin-living, field games, a roller skating rink, and water sports, not to mention sets […]
A big week for big sounds and bigger narratives. Let’s fire up the feels machine and get to it. WHAT TO HEAR: Leading us off this week is the first new music from Boston post-sludge legends Cave In, Final Transmission (Hyrdra Head), in over eight years.

Attendees of The Governors Ball Music & Arts Festival, which took place May 31st – June 2nd on Randall’s Island, learned that lesson the hard way. If you tuned into Twitter (aka the Entitled Millennial Broadcasting Network) sometime over the last 48 or […]
Again, apologies for the intermittent nature of this section for the next month or two. I’m here this week and so are a few new records, however, so let’s not waste any more time on pleasantries (or lack thereof.) WHAT TO HEAR: First up this week is Old Star (Peaceville Records), the new LP from […]
Another week, another This Goes to Eleven. It’s business as usual here at corporate HQ, so punch in and get in the pit.
Apologies in advance for the impending sportiness of this section over the next few months. I have my 30th birthday, several weddings, a bunch of work stuff, and a cross-country studio trip for my band all on the ol’ Google calendar. But when I’m here, I’ll do my best to spit up one of these, […]
Photo by: Keizo Shimamoto The New York City festival scene just blushed. Back for its fifth year is Pinknic Festival, a boutique event that brings a whole new meaning to the phrase “rosé all day”. Featuring an eclectic music lineup, delectable drinks and gourmet bites, Pinknic is a multi-faceted celebration of everyone’s favorite summer sipper […]
Actually they REALLY won’t since the changes “may entail waiting 40 minutes for an L train.” The MTA is warning that there will be long waits and trains too crowded to board at “certain times.” And don’t even get us started on the bus situation on 14th Street — critics of the plans worry that they will crawl […]
