Recommended Thursday Show: Cults, Oberhofer, and Puro Instinct at Music Hall of Williamsburg

I’ll be honest, I’m mostly recommending this show because it’s free.  But that’s fantastic, because this is a pretty damn good quality show for no money!  You have to RSVP here, and entrance is based on capacity, but Cults are fun and Oberhofer is one of those deservedly-hot-right-now young bands that it seems like we’ve […]

Recommended Thursday Show: Magic Kids and Cults at Mercury Lounge

Ah, the infectious opening line, “Hey Boy, where’s your girlfriend?”  Magic Boys are almost sickeningly adorable, but still have plenty of well-deserved street cred to their names.  The Memphis group’s 2010 album, Memphis, didn’t earn quite as much critical praise as I thought it might have, but for a band that lives in the spaces of […]

My Favorite Songs of 2010: 30-21

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: Morning Benders, Twin Sisters, and Cults at Webster Hall

This show is going to be so, so pleasant.  Cults?  Pleasant.  Twin Sister?  Pleasant.  Morning Benders? Super pleasant.  Three good bands, all of them easy to listen to.  This show won’t necessarily challenge your music instincts (wait until Saturday’s Black Dice show for that), but it’s definitely going to be fun.  Plus, Morning Benders really […]

Recommended Friday Show: CMJ Day #4

It’s time to face facts.  You have some tough choices to make during the day on Friday.  First of all, there’s some great NYRM-approved bands playing at Cake Shop.  Rooftop Vigilantes, Your Youth, and Yellow Ostrich.  If that were a show during normal times, it would in and of itself be a can’t-miss.  I’m pretty […]

Recommended Friday Show: Cults at Knitting Factory

Honestly, if I were you, I’d go see Ty Segall again at Death By Audio on Friday.  Royal Baths are playing with him again, which is a good thing, along with Babies- also a good thing.  More on Ty Segall and Royal Baths tomorrow, though.  If you haven’t seen Cults yet, their Knitting Factory show […]

Recommended Tuesday Show: Cults and The Sundelles (and Sleigh Bells) at Ridgewood Temple

Cults.  If you haven’t heard their song, “Go Outside,” then it’s definitely worth a listen.  It’s delectably infectious, and has been making its way around the Internet like swine flu for the past few months, which is why I haven’t posted it previous to this occasion.  Bloggers seem to really be going wild over this […]
