Recommended Friday Show: Deerhunter and Real Estate at Webster Hall

There’s a lot going on tomorrow night.  But I have one question for you.  Have you heard Halcyon Digest?  Have you heard Halcyon Digest?  It’s beautiful.  Gorgeous.  Beautiful.  Really, listen to it if you haven’t.  Listen to it, and then read this review.  I won’t even say anymore, because he says everything I could. Regardless [...]

Recommended Wednesday Show: The Thermals, Cymbals Eat Guitars, and So Cow at Irving Plaza

Now that Irving Plaza is called Irving Plaza again, I feel that it’s ok to recommend shows there.  It was, after all, the first venue I ever went to in NYC.  While it does seem slightly ridiculous to see all three of these bands in such a large venue (remember when The Thermals were opening [...]

Recommended Tuesday Show: Bowerbirds and Death Vessel at Bowery Ballroom

It’s funny.  I’ve come to think of Bowerbirds as an old standard- one of those bands that’s been around forever and that everyone knows about.  Which isn’t quite accurate at all.  They’ve only been around for four years, have only put out two albums, and the last time I saw them play New York was [...]

Recommended Saturday Show: Celebration, Andrew Cedermark, Woodsman, and Up Died Sound at Glasslands

I’ve been pretty down on music this week.  I’m getting so tired of all the “hazy” “swirling” supposed pop numbers that sound like they’re ripped from an 80s local cable commercial.  You know what I’m talking about.  Sure, some, a very small percent, are good, but most of it is crap!  And it’s what all [...]

Recommended Tuesday Show: Marnie Stern at The Rock Shop

Marnie Stern, killer guitarist (though that isn’t what she wants to be known as) and all-around cool-seeming person.  She has a fantastic new album coming out Tuesday, and a killer track from the album has been circulating for awhile, “For Ash.”  The Rock Shop is a pretty tiny place, so consider this an amazing opportunity [...]

Photos: Yellow Ostrich at Glasslands

Take note now.  Start listening to Yellow Ostrich.  I posted his song “Yellow Ostrich” last April, but last night (Tuesday) was his very first ever New York City show, and I believe his first show with a drummer.  He manipulates loop petals and rhythms into beautiful pop builds that are surprisingly unlike your typical loop [...]

Recommended Thursday Show: Belle & Sebastian at Williamsburg Waterfront

I normally try not to do this, but I will say first off that this show is going to run you $50 if you buy your tickets from Ticketcrapster.  Yes.  That’s a lot of money for one show.  But you’re getting some good perks for what you pay for.  It’ll be one of the few [...]

Recommended Wednesday Show: Best Coast, Male Bonding, and Small Black at Bowery Ballroom

This show is happening twice this week, once at Bowery and once at MHOW, with Alex Bleeker & The Freaks instead of Small Black.  Of course, this means I think you should really go to the Thursday show, but I bet both will be very fun.  Some of Bethany’s recent tweets revealed that she’s been [...]

Recommended Monday Show: Beach Fossils, Grass Widow, and Oberhofer at Old Firehouse

There’s nothing we haven’t already covered in this show, but it’s definitely the most intriguing thing going down this Monday.  Although, I suppose the first part of that sentence isn’t actually true.  A band called Ovens is actually playing, which turns out to be a really difficult band to Google.  Anyone have a MySpace link [...]

Recommended Saturday Show: Sisters, Weekends, Grooms, and Darlings at Dead Herring

This Sisters’ record release show at Dead Herring is going to be bompin.  Sisters, Weekends, Groom, and Darlings?  Right?  RIGHT?!  Such a great lineup in such a great space!  The perfect Saturday night. MP3: “Glue” – Sisters
