Recommended Wednesday Show: Davila 666, Hunx & His Punx, and Shannon and The Clams at Cake Shop

It’s an epic battle of two shows this Wednesday, vying for your favors in a Austenian struggle of awesomeness.  Bowery Ballroom is seductively batting its eyes at you with DOM, MINKS, Fergus & Geronimo, and Total Slacker.  A total babe!  How could a show get better than that?  It seems like the obvious choice.  But […]

Recommended Saturday Show: Record Store Day at Cake Shop

Drawing by Meredith Leich Record Store day is fantastic in theory.  There’s all these bands playing for free and you can go see them and buy new exclusive records and hang out all day and then record stores live forever.  In reality, it’s more like, “Man.  I really want to buy all these records.  What’s […]

Recommended Friday Show: WBAR-B-Q at Barnard College

It’s not too often you get a chance to see fantastic bands above 14th street, or really above Houston for that matter, but this Friday WBAR at Barnard College is putting on their annual WBAR-B-Q.  I went last year- it was cold and rainy and so inside their somewhat gloomy gym, but it was still worth […]

Recommended Thursday Show: Helado Negro at Union Pool

The last few days have been all basement bro rock, so here’s something a little different.  Check out Brooklyn-via-South Florida’s Helado Negro aka Roberto Carlos Lange.  He’s on Asthmatic Kitty, the same label as Sufjan.  So if you like that kind of thing, it’s worth checking this show out.  If you like anything a little […]

Recommended Wednesday Show: White Fang, Turbosleaze, and Jesse Carsten at Silent Barn

This Wednesday’s show is a real sloppy guitar party at Silent Barn.  I really like all of the Turbosleaze songs I’ve heard- all angular guitars.  That’s pretty much it.  Angular guitars.  Really upbeat songs, too.  Take a listen below; they’re cool.  And they seem like fun live.  I’m not sure if this is your idea […]

Recommended Tuesday Show: Surf City, Darlings, and Little Racer at Glasslands

Darlings have a new EP out!  That’s good news, especially for anyone who’s ever listened to Yeah I Know. There are truly some puzzling things about this whole indie rock game, and one of life’s biggest mysteries is how terrible, terrible Brooklyn bands keep blowing up and Darlings haven’t yet.  This is one of the […]

Recommended Saturday Show: Brain Cave Festival at Shea Stadium

It’s springtime!  Pretty much!  This means that for the next six months, we’ll want to sit around all afternoon drinking beers and listening to bands.  Right?  That’s what I want to do anyways, as soon as the weather is remotely warmish. Shea Stadium is kicking off the season of warm weather band fun with the […]

Recommended Friday Show: MV & EE and Spectre Folk at Death By Audio

I think I’m starting to lose my touch.  I look at all the show listings with the new bands, and none of them interest me very much.  Maybe we’re in a lull.  Does anyone feel like we’re in a musical lull, for the past several months or so?  I sure do.  Luckily, FINALLY, a band […]

Recommended Tuesday Show: Wire and Weekend at Music Hall of Williamsburg

Wire is the real deal.  They were part of the original British punk movement, forming in London in 1976.  They weren’t as sweet or as snotty as some of their peers, they were darker and more driving in the places they took punk rock and made it their own.  They were active right up through […]

Recommended Saturday Show: JEFF the Brotherhood, Heavy Cream, Hell Beach, X-Ray Eyeballs, and Colleen Green at Death By Audio

Mmmhhmmm, this is one of those reliably excellent rock-your-face-off shows.  JTB is supposed to be the “secret guest,” but the cat is all the way out of the bag at this point.  JEFF has been playing places like Bowery and MHOW lately, so this show is going to be packed, sweaty, and an absurd amount […]
