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 […]

This show was rescheduled to last night because the 1990s were delayed by the volcano eruption.  That gave the whole evening the mark of being an afterthought.  Though there was a sizable crowd, it wasn’t packed, and the bill itself felt very strange.  The Oranges Band played first.  They are four guys who are extremely […]

Recommended Friday Show: Crystal Stilts at The Bell House

These days, I’ve found myself feeling a little bit ho-hum about Crystal Stilts.  They’ve been around for awhile now, I’ve seen ’em a whole bunch, and it seems like Frankie has gone on (with Dee Dee of Dum Dum Girls and in her own band) to make more of-the-minute versions of the surf-sloppy songs.  But […]

Recommended Saturday Show: The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Crystal Stilts, and Frankie Rose at the Bell House

Painfully busy today- on my way to Philly for one of my band’s own shows.  If I were to go see something tonight, it would be this.  It’s Slumberland Record’s Anniversary party.  A great little record label with some great bands.  I’ve blogged about all these guys before, and I’m sure you’re familiar with Pains […]

Recommended Thursday Show: Pains Of Being Pure At Heart, Crystal Stilts, and caUSE co-MOTION at Cake Shop

If you were lucky enough to get tickets for this show at Cake Shop tomorrow, well done.  This is probably the last chance you’ll ever have to see Pains of Being Pure At Heart at a venue as small and intimate as Cake Shop.  I’ve recently seen both of the other bands at Cake Shop. […]

I’d never seen Crystal Stilts before, so I was pretty excited when my Thursday plans fell through, freeing me up to make my way on down to Cake Shop to check them out.  It was the last day of April, which at Cake Shop means that anyone with an April birthday gets free admission, two […]

Last night I decided to wander out into the blustery Lower East Side after giving Rooftop Vigilantes’ Myspace page a cursory listen at work.  I thought there was something there, enough to get me out to Cake Shop late on a Thursday evening.  I don’t mean to toot my own horn, but boy was I […]
