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: The Twerps and Big Troubles at Cake Shop

The Twerps are from Australia, and they have been getting a good deal of buzzzzz on the better blogs for the past month or two, and now they’re on an American tour.  In terms of current bands, they’re like one part Strange Boys and one part Girls and one part 70s NYC punk band.  It’s […]

Recommended Wednesday Show: Les Savy Fav and Big Troubles at Bowery Ballroom

Isn’t a Les Savy Fav show always great?  I remember in 2006 when they came to Swarthmore.  Everyone was so, so excited.  I think at that time it was supposedly their last tour, so everyone was whipped into a near frenzy over it.  Detachment Kit played a killer set first, and by the time LSF […]

Recommended Friday Show: MINKS, Family Portrait, Big Troubles, and Widowspeak at Glasslands

Family Portrait and Big Troubles and hey, even Widowspeak (a band I’ve never seen before) have been getting a lot of ink on here lately.  But this is definitely the best show happening this Friday.  I’ve never seen MINKS.  People like them.  To me, they sound like Crystal Stils, Girls, and The Drums rolled into […]

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 […]

Recommended Friday Show: Julian Lynch, Big Troubles, and Family Portrait at Music Hall of Williamsburg

Oh man!  After a short respite from Shows of the Day, we’re back!  With a really, really great show.  Julian Lynch is in town, and that’s a fantastic thing.  His quiet, oftentimes experimental bedroom music is fantastic.  If you didn’t see him last night at Glasslands, then make sure to get your butt out to […]

My Favorite Albums of 2010

I almost didn’t make this list.  I mean, come on.  It’s New Year’s Eve.  No one cares anymore.  Everyone’s just getting psyched for Ariel Pink or Titus tonight (you should definitely go to one of those shows, by the way), and looking forward to the whole music cycle starting over again in 2011.  I swear […]

My Favorite Songs of 2010: 40-31

Welcome to The New York Rockmarket’s end of the year list spectacular.  This is when I talk about how lists are fun but ultimately meaningless, and apologize for not posting the last few days because I’ve been compiling my lists.  This is also where I talk about favorites as opposed to best,like I did last […]

Recommended Friday Show: Super Vacations, Screens, PC Worship, Big Troubles, and The Surprisers at Death By Audio

This ought to turn out to be a pretty exciting show.  We already know and love Big Troubles and The Surprisers here on NYRM.  PC Worship and Super Vacations have been around for awhile, but have largely escaped our notice here.  I blogged about PC Worship a little while back, and I still think of […]

Recommended Thursday Show: Christmas Island, Alex Bleeker & The Freaks, Big Troubles, The Babies, and Family Trees at Glasslands

If you’re not going to one of the big shows, like Pavement or LCD or one of the Merzbow shows this Thursday, you basically have two options.  Glasslands or Shea Stadium.  Glasslands eeked its way out as our recommended show of the day.  While Shea Stadium boasts Juan Wauters, Easter Vomit, and German Measles (plus […]
