Recommended Wednesday Show: The Thermals, Cymbals Eat Guitars, and So Cow at Irving Plaza

Now that Irving Plaza is called Irving Plaza again, I feel that it’s ok to recommend shows there.  It was, after all, the first venue I ever went to in NYC.  While it does seem slightly ridiculous to see all three of these bands in such a large venue (remember when The Thermals were opening […]

My Favorite Albums of 2009: 25-11

I’m not completely happy with this list.  I’ve been agonizing over it for about a month now, and no matter how I work it, it doesn’t seem to come out right.  I listened to about 250 albums this year, a paltry percentage of the number of total releases.  Even out of those, I only listened […]

My Favorite 50 Songs of 2009: 40-31

CMJ: Recommended Saturday Shows

(Highly) Recommended Thursday Show: White Rabbits, Cymbals Eat Guitars, The Antlers at Bowery Ballroom

This show is a no-brainer.  I LOVE all three of these bands.  If I weren’t going to be in Philadelphia for the evening, I’d be right up at the front, camera in hand, watching three of the best bands this city has to offer.  I’ve covered The Antlers quite a lot on this blog. You […]

Photos (Sorta) and Amazing New Song: Cymbals Eat Guitars at Rooftop Films Opening

I’m very late with this post (the event was on Friday), but I think you’ll see it was worth the delay.  I didn’t bring my camera to the first night of the Rooftop Films series because I thought I should take a night off.  Sometimes I wonder if my friends don’t get a little embarrassed […]
