Recommended Wednesday Show: Indian Rebound, Cloud Nothings, Toro y Moi, and Philip Seymour Hoffman at Mercury Lounge

This is a pretty absurd line-up for Mercury Lounge.  Cloud Nothings and Toro y Moi could both probably carry their own Bowery or MHOW show (in fact, Toro y Moi will be doing just that on April 10th).  Cloud Nothings are very high on both my Favorite Songs and Favorite Albums lists for 2010, and [...]

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: 10-1

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 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 [...]

Photos: Northside Part I

Wavves.  Wavves, Wavves, Wavves, Wavves, Wavves.  Are you really dating Best Coast or is it all just a publicity stunt?  Why exactly did you sign to Mountain Dew Records?  And are you flat-ironing your hair now?  It kind of looks like you are.  So many questions.  One resounding answer.  A pretty sweet rock and roll [...]

Recommended Thursday Show: Wavves, Cloud Nothings, and Dom at The Knitting Factory

Northside Festival has begun!  What does this mean?  So.  Many.  Shows.  If you’d like to see a lot of music this weekend, it’s definitely worth it to get a $50 badge.  If you’re just looking to go to one, well, it’s probably best to just get tickets for that show.  Unless, however, you want to [...]

Photos (for Impose): Cloud Nothings, Fluffy Lumbers, and Dream Diary at Monster Island Basement

This show happened last week, but you can check out some photos of Cloud Nothings, Fluffy Lumbers, and Dream Diary at Monster Island Basement over at Impose.  I was feeling very flash-o-phobic, so it’s definitely not my best work, but you can get the general idea of the mood of the evening.  I’d been looking [...]

Photos: Titus Andronicus, Parts & Labor, Babies, and Cloud Nothings at Bowery Ballroom

Patrick Stickles should be a very happy man today.  Last night’s Bowery Ballroom show is proof that sometimes good things happen to people who deserve them.  Playing to a sold out house, Titus Andronicus was in the best form I’d seen them in over a year.  Minus a few too-bro-y-for-me guitar players, plus a new [...]

Recommended Saturday Show: Titus Andronicus, Babies, Parts & Labor, and Cloud Nothings at Bowery Ballroom

I want to say something.  This is horrible blogging, but I don’t care.  I’m even going to write it in all caps, that’s how excited I am.  THE MONITOR IS MY FAVORITE ALBUM SINCE SEPARATION SUNDAY.  I don’t really like to get so personal on this blog with the things I really, really love, but [...]
