Recommended Friday Show: NYU Strawberry Festival

Lightning Bolt is crazy.  They have the loudest, rumbliest, most rocking live show, and it is something not to be missed.  Combine that with the outdoors on a nice spring day- the juxtaposition is sure to be magic!  Plus, you also get to see Pterodactyl, Ducktails, and So So Glos.  AND enjoy street booths manned [...]

Photos: Lower Dens, Ducktails, and Glory Girls at Music Hall of Williamsburg

These pictures are almost already a week old, so I’ll be brief.  I was so pleased to find out that Lower Dens was headlining a show at MHOW, and even more pleased when I saw that the venue was almost nearly full for them.  I’m not even sure how it happened.  It was only two [...]

Recommended Friday Show: Lower Dens, Ducktails, and Glory Girls at Music Hall of Williamsburg

Another one of our favorites has arrived.  I’m not wild about recommending shows at the bigger venues (that’s not really what’s at the essence of this blog, I hope), but it’s so, so satisfying to do when it’s for a tiny band that has finally come into their own.  Jana Hunter has been weaving together [...]

Photos (for Impose): Smith Westerns, Ducktails, and Bass Drum Of Death at Glasslands

Those Smith Westerns kids are good.  They’re good at guitar, they’ve got that rock and roll sound, they’re total teen heartthrobs, and they’re just a little bit obnoxious.  They’re all the things we always knew they were, and now they’re going to get huge.  I wasn’t sure if the band was going to really get [...]

Recommended Tuesday Show: Smith Westerns, Ducktails, and The Sundelles at Glasslands

Smith Westerns received Best New Music on Pitchfork today, and with this sold-out show tonight at Glasslands, it feels like they’ve finally arrived as a permanent part of today’s national music landscape.  It’s about time.  The first time I posted about them was in October of 2009, and they’d even been around awhile by that [...]

Photos (for Impose): Gary War, Ducktails, and The Surprisers at Union Pool

More pictures of people from the New Jersey scene!  Ducktails sounded it good with a full band; it was the first time I’d seen that.  I kind of missed the textured sounds of his button-pushing, but it was still as good as we’ve come to expect from that crew.  I really like The Surprisers.  I [...]

Recommended Saturday Show: Ducktails, Gary War, and The Surprisers at Union Pool

This show is free!  I mean, the poster says $8, but Matt Mondanile tweeted that it was free, so I’m gonna go with that.  Ducktails and Gary War are both totally sweet noise-ish acts that I’ve covered often on this blog, and they’re both hosting the show in support of new recordings.  The Surprisers have [...]

MP3 Roundup: Weed Diamond, The Corin Tucker Band, Ducktails, and The Hundred In The Hands

Happy September!  Time to get blogging again.  I’ve had a nice break, and now I’m ready with fresh ears to bring you the best Brooklyn has to offer.  I expect to be posting at least once a day, but I want to reiterate that I’m not going to suggest a daily show unless there’s something [...]

Recommended Friday Show: Julian Lynch, Ducktails, Campfires, Big Troubles, La Big Vic at Glasslands

I’ve been bumming pretty hard on music recently.  It’s one of those dry spells where nothing new seems to capture your interest.  This, however, has pulled me out of my slump.  It’s hosted by the wonderful blog, Microphone Memory Emotion, and is decidedly one of the best lineups of the summer.  You’re probably already familiar [...]

Recommended Friday Show: Ducktails, Wild Nothing, Velvet Davenport, and Woodsman at Monster Island Basement

Brace yourselves.  New York City is packing an entire season’s worth of music into the next week.  There are at least five different totally worthy shows this Friday night, eight more on Saturday, and starting next Thursday, a ridiculously exciting Northside Festival weekend.  Was the lineup this good or extensive last year?  I certainly don’t [...]
