Ten Hope is a lovely addition to the neighborhood and they’re officially open for business this week. Expect creative drinks, impeccable design, and shareable plates. They also have a lovely courtyard which will be fantastic when we make it through the winter chill. Be sure to check them out at, where else, 10 Hope Street in […]
This is not a huge surprise, given their troubled history with their landlord, but this really sucks. Brooklyn Bazaar has a handful of shows and events slotted before they shutdown on November 30, so be sure to swing by and give them some love. WE’RE OUT (AGAIN) After 3 years and thousands of shows, events, […]
Philly quartet Sheer Mag put out their excellent new album, A Distant Call in August and those with a hankering for Thin Lizzy-esque rock should listen to it at your nearest convenience (or inconvenience, even). Produced by Arthur Rizk, the record nails a classic sound and captures the band at their most accomplished to date, while their previous efforts […]
It’s always sad to hear of impending venue closures like Brooklyn Bazaar, come to think of it we’re almost at the 5-year anniversary of Vice media ripping Death By Audio out of our still beating hearts (still not over it). Anyway, let’s try to be a bit more positive with these excellent shows…
Welcome to October, folks. This is a 21+ maturity show, so if you call it spooky szn, please see yourself out. WHAT TO HEAR: This week is owned by Arizona death metal unit Gatecreeper, who return after a three-year vision quest with their sophomore full length (and long-awaited follow-up to 2016’s Sonoran Deprivation), Deserted (Relapse). […]
Ainslie opened last night in Williamsburg, just off the Lorimer L train stop. The 10,000-square-foot restaurant will serve Italian staples and wood-fired pizza. Ainslie also has four bars with 20 wines by the glass, four wines on tap and 16 beers from local craft breweries on tap. Needless to say, we can’t wait to give […]
Another week, another bonkers roster of metal releases. It’s a good problem to have, but I’m not even caught up with August yet. Oh well, onward into the void. WHAT TO HEAR: First up this week is one that I and more than a few other heavy metal degenerates have been waiting breathlessly for since […]
It’s officially September and you know what that means people: FALL RELEASE SEASON TIME WOOP WOOP [airhorn, airhorn, airhorn]. So take to the battlements and brace yourself, because if today is just the beginning, I’m legit scared about what’s to come.
It’s one of the biggest release weeks of the year, so strap in and buckle up. Do whatever you have to do, because this is about to get hectic. WHAT TO HEAR: OK, so first up this week is Fear Inoculum (RCA), the first new music from Tool in 13 years. 19/16 time signature enthusiasts […]
Happy labour day weekend everyone. While many may be fleeing the city for a break, those of us who remain can enjoy a little more elbow room for a few days, and you can enjoy some excellent shows while you’re at it.
