Photos: NYRM 2nd Anniversary Show at Shea Stadium

Saturday night saw this blog’s 2nd anniversary show at Shea Stadium.  All the bands were great, Prince Rama were killer DJs who were nice enough to stay until 3AM and keep everyone dancing the whole time.  I had a really wonderful time, and I hope everyone else who came did, too.  I want to say […]

Photos (for Impose): Gary War, Ducktails, and The Surprisers at Union Pool

More pictures of people from the New Jersey scene!  Ducktails sounded it good with a full band; it was the first time I’d seen that.  I kind of missed the textured sounds of his button-pushing, but it was still as good as we’ve come to expect from that crew.  I really like The Surprisers.  I […]

Photos (for Impose): Julian Lynch, Big Troubles, and Family Portrait at Music Hall of Williamsburg

I am extremely, extremely happy to report that Julian Lynch, Big Troubles, AND Family Portrait all sounded amazing at Music Hall of Williamsburg on Friday night.  After two years of hearing all three of these bands over mediocre PAs in tiny clubs and DIY venues (not to knock those places, they’re my favorites- but you […]

Photos (for Impose): Super Vacations, PC Worship, Screens, and The Surprisers at Death By Audio

I’ve got photos up over at Impose from Friday of Super Vacations, PC Worship, Screens, and The Surprisers at Death By Audio.  The night what just about as I’d predicted it would.  I did not enjoy Screens- their high-energy electronic beats just didn’t do much for me- but Super Vacations, PC Worship, and The Surprisers […]

Photos: 42nd Street Showpaper Gallery

If Todd P. and Babycastles rent a space on 42nd Street just past 3rd Avenue and set up a video arcade and a free, all ages DIY venue, it’s going to be exactly like Monster Island and Market Hotel and Ms. Bea’s, just…in Manhattan.  Right?  I was pretty surprised on Friday night to find out […]

Photos (for Impose): Neon Indian and Prince Rama at Brooklyn Bowl

On Friday night, Neon Indian played at Brooklyn Bowl and judged a Halloween contest.  That was fun and all, but Neon Indian could not have sounded worse (and I mean that almost literally).  The electronics and theramin and guitar and drums sounded like they were being played by four people who couldn’t hear each other, […]

Recommended Saturday Show: DOM, The Smith Westerns, Total Slacker, YellowFever, and Sweet Bulbs at Station 171

Personally, I like to spend my Saturday Halloween nights at house parties with friends, not riding any trains where people in scary masks with fake weapons give me anxiety attacks.  BUT, this show almost, ALMOST makes me reconsider.  And I really hate riding the subway with people in scary masks holding fake weapons.  All five […]

Photos (for Impose): CMJ Days 4 + 5

Friday and Saturday of CMJ I got sick.  Really, really sick.  I mean, not really sick, but sick enough that I tried to go to shows past 8 o’clock but fell asleep on my feet and didn’t talk to anyone because my throat hurt too badly.  That’s why I don’t really have any photos or […]

Photos (for Impose): CMJ Day 3

As I mentioned yesterday (or very early this morning, as the case may be), CMJ Thursday was JAM PACKED.  I got to spend the day taking pictures at the Impose/Pop Jew party, and those will be up on Monday most likely.  After leaving The Woods, I decided that I was going to take it slow […]

Photos (for Impose): CMJ Day 2

Oh my goodness.  Now that I’ve just gotten home from day 3 of CMJ, day 2 seems like ages ago.  I can hardly remember what happened.  Actually, there was some pretty good stuff, and you can check out my visual record of it over at Impose right here.  I started the day off at Chocolate […]
