Recommended Thursday Show: Christmas Island, Alex Bleeker & The Freaks, Big Troubles, The Babies, and Family Trees at Glasslands

Alex Bleeker & The Freaks

If you’re not going to one of the big shows, like Pavement or LCD or one of the Merzbow shows this Thursday, you basically have two options.  Glasslands or Shea Stadium.  Glasslands eeked its way out as our recommended show of the day.  While Shea Stadium boasts Juan Wauters, Easter Vomit, and German Measles (plus a band called the Honey Dos, with whom my old band actually played a show in DC- they were ok), Glasslands has more bang for the buck, though the territory may be more well-tread.  Alex Bleeker & The Freaks, The Babies, Family Trees, and Big Troubles are all amazing.  I did not like Christmas Island when I saw them play with The Beets at Cake Shop, but the rest of the lineup is about as solid of a Brooklyn representation as you can get.  Check it out.
