Recommended Friday Show: Crystal Stilts, Beach Fossils, and Widowspeak at 285 Kent

Crystal Stilts have a new record coming out soon.  I haven’t heard it yet, but I’m betting that’s it’s going to be incredible.  I know they’ve spent a long time working on it making sure that it sounds really good, and I have full confidence that it will.  There’s been such an astonishingly quick shift […]

Recommended Saturday Show: I Guess I’m Floating 5 Year Anniversary Party

I Guess I’m Floating is hands down one of my favorite blogs.  I don’t always love everything they put up, but they’ve led me to some of my absolute favorite bands of the past two years.  They’re completely unpretentious, but still have killer taste.  If for some crazy reason you’re reading this blog and are […]

Recommended Thursday Show: CMJ Day #3

At least CMJ Thursday is pretty straight-forward during the day.  It’s the I Guess I’m Floating (one of my very favorite blogs) Pianos day party.  It’s pretty much wall-to-wall worthwhile bands including Baths, Beach Fossils, Oberhofer, Teen Daze, Young Man, Braids, and Gobble Gobble. The nighttime gets much more complicated.  Of course, part of this […]

Recommended Wednesday Show: CMJ Day #2

1AM and I just stepped in for the first time since 10AM this morning.  These festival thingys are pretty exhausting.  Luckily for most everyone, tomorrow has a lot of good shows, but only a few real standouts.  I definitely recommend picking somewhere and staying put, at least as the nighttime is concerned.  If you’re lucky […]

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 Thursday Show: Beach Fossils, Woven Bones, and The Beets at Bruar Falls

This show should feel like coming home.  I haven’t done a Recommended show post in several days, but that’s because I didn’t really feel like there was anything worth your time.  My Sunday at Northside led me from one disappointing musical moment to another (so many bad bands!), that I fell into a bit of […]

Recommended Saturday Show: Micachu & The Shapes, Beach Fossils, Holiday Shores, and Moonmen on the Moon, Man at Bruar Falls

This is one of those ridiculous, blow your mind shows that has only come together through a lucky series of extenuating circumstances.  It’s Bruar Fall’s one year anniversary of existing, and they were throwing a show with German Measles and some other surprise guest in celebration.  Okay, that’s cool.  But then there was unfortunately a […]

Photos: Beach Fossils, Total Slacker, Air Waves, Eternal Summers, and Beachniks at Bruar Falls

In the epic Friday night court battle of Real Estate vs. Bruar Falls, Bruar Falls won the jury’s hearts on account of it probably being less packed.  It was still very crowded, but I’m glad that my friends and I didn’t miss the dance party that broke out when Beach Fossils played their set around […]

Recommended Friday Show: Beach Fossils, Total Slacker, Air Waves, Eternal Summers, Beachniks

This is a ridiculous show.  The entire line-up is full of my favorite up-and-coming bands.  What makes it even crazier is the Real Estate/Family Portrait/Liam the Younger/Big Troubles show happening simultaneously just down the street.  So why does this one get my pick?  Beachniks are unpracticed but cute.  Total Slacker’s Tucker is a rocking guitar […]

Recommended Sunday Show: Love Is All, Beach Fossils, and The Beets at The Knitting Factory

Love Is All, from Sweden, just released a brand new happenin’ album.  It’s called Two Thousand and Ten Injuries, and it’s all over the place in the very best way.  Punk bass lines morph into sparse, chanting, joyous melodies and vocal riffs.  It’s really cool stuff, and I hear they put on a very energetic […]
