Recommended Saturday Show: DOM, The Smith Westerns, Total Slacker, YellowFever, and Sweet Bulbs at Station 171

Personally, I like to spend my Saturday Halloween nights at house parties with friends, not riding any trains where people in scary masks with fake weapons give me anxiety attacks.  BUT, this show almost, ALMOST makes me reconsider.  And I really hate riding the subway with people in scary masks holding fake weapons.  All five […]

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 […]

Photos (for Impose): CMJ Day 2

Oh my goodness.  Now that I’ve just gotten home from day 3 of CMJ, day 2 seems like ages ago.  I can hardly remember what happened.  Actually, there was some pretty good stuff, and you can check out my visual record of it over at Impose right here.  I started the day off at Chocolate […]

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 […]

Recommended Tuesday Show: CMJ Day #1

Welcome to day number one of CMJ.  There’s obviously a lot of music going on this week, and if you do a bit of planning ahead, it will be quite good.  While I feel that the quality of this year’s bands is a little bit thinner than in year’s past (more due to lack of […]

Recommended Saturday Show: Siren Fest at Coney Island

It’s that time of year again.  Get out there and sweat with the best of them at Siren.  Eat some hot dogs, walk on the boardwalk, ride the cyclone.  If you do decide to brave the crowds and the heat, make sure not miss these bands, my picks for this year: Dom, Wye Oak, Ponytail, […]

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 Friday Shows: Northside Festival Mania

I couldn’t choose one show to recommend for Friday.  You couldn’t possibly only go to one show tomorrow night.  Northside has packed Williamsburg with an absurd amount of good bands this Friday, and I’m going to give you a run down of all the ones I think are worth dropping by.  First and foremost, Famous […]

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 […]
