Recommended Friday Show: MINKS, Family Portrait, Big Troubles, and Widowspeak at Glasslands

Family Portrait and Big Troubles and hey, even Widowspeak (a band I’ve never seen before) have been getting a lot of ink on here lately.  But this is definitely the best show happening this Friday.  I’ve never seen MINKS.  People like them.  To me, they sound like Crystal Stils, Girls, and The Drums rolled into […]

I am extremely, extremely happy to report that Julian Lynch, Big Troubles, AND Family Portrait all sounded amazing at Music Hall of Williamsburg on Friday night.  After two years of hearing all three of these bands over mediocre PAs in tiny clubs and DIY venues (not to knock those places, they’re my favorites- but you […]

Recommended Friday Show: Julian Lynch, Big Troubles, and Family Portrait at Music Hall of Williamsburg

Oh man!  After a short respite from Shows of the Day, we’re back!  With a really, really great show.  Julian Lynch is in town, and that’s a fantastic thing.  His quiet, oftentimes experimental bedroom music is fantastic.  If you didn’t see him last night at Glasslands, then make sure to get your butt out to […]

Recommended Wednesday Show: Tennis, Family Portrait, Miracles of Modern Science, and La Big Vic at Mercury Lounge

Welcome back from Thanksgiving!  I don’t know about you, but I just ate a TON of food.  I was in New Jersey in a cheese/mashed potato coma, so forgive me for the lack of posting.  There were some great shows over the weekend, but we’ve now entered the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas when the […]

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 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 […]

SXSW 2010: Thursday

Yesterday was a complete SXSW day.  Downtown at noon and not home again until 3AM.  Since it was such a late night I didn’t get a chance to blog before I started falling asleep sitting up at my computer, so this post will be a bit abbreviated for the time being (gotta get back downtown […]
