Recommended Tuesday Show (and Sweet MP3): Darlings, Equestrian, and Video Daughters at Glasslands

Tomorrow you could definitely go see Final Fantasy and The Mountain Goats, but I would probably wait until Wednesday and see them at The Bell House.  Why not check out this smaller show at Glasslands instead?  I’m only familiar with Darlings, whose album will probably be on my “best of” list this year for its […]

CMJ: Recommended Saturday Shows

I took last night off.  I fell asleep in front the newest It’s Always Sunny at 10, awoke two hours later to zombie-walk into my bed, and just woke up again a few minutes ago.  This CMJ business is a lot more tiring than I remember it being.  I hope everyone rested up for today, […]

Recommended Tuesday Show: Darlings, Snakes Say Hiss, Boogie Boarder, Tony Castles at Le Poisson Rouge

Recommended Friday Show: ??!!!!#@$$**????

It’s official.  Every good show this week is happening on Friday.  This is one of the first times where I am really, truly undecided on what to recommend.  Luckily, my own band is playing so I won’t have to make any tough decisions myself, but I’ll try to give you as much information as possible […]

I went to see Lovvers last night at Cake Shop based solely on hearing their one (difficult to pronounce on the radio) track, “AXTXTXIXTXDXE.”  It starts with a wash of undulating ascending feedback, turns into a lovely British-punk influenced jingle jangle, and finishes before it hits the two minute mark.  Nothing groundbreaking, sure, but I […]

Recommended Tuesday Show: Ezra Furman and the Harpoons, Darlings, and Peasant at Pianos

Ezra Furman is one band where I do not understand why they aren’t more popular yet.  I don’t think they should be popular just because they’re good (they are).  Lots of bands I think are very good will never get popular, but Furman’s pop sensibilities are so accessible that I can’t really imagine who their […]
