Recommended Monday Show: Alela Diane at Housingworks

I officially declare this week the week of shows in mildly unusual places.  Okay, maybe just Monday and Tuesday (I guess you’ll have to wait until tomorrow to find out on that Tuesday one…or look at any show listing site and predict my extremely predictable blogging…), but the chance to see Alela Diane amidst stacks […]

Recommended Friday Show: Blitzen Trapper, Plants and Animals, and Alela Diane at Bowery Ballroom

This show is jam-packed with exciting acts!  First of all, Blitzen Trapper is great- a truly solid, dependable band that will always be there for you in your times of need.  I thought Furr was one of the best albums of 2008.  These alt-rockers have consistently excellent, entertaining songwriting.  Their music has real, true soul […]
