Recommended Friday Show: WBAR-B-Q at Barnard College

It’s not too often you get a chance to see fantastic bands above 14th street, or really above Houston for that matter, but this Friday WBAR at Barnard College is putting on their annual WBAR-B-Q.  I went last year- it was cold and rainy and so inside their somewhat gloomy gym, but it was still worth [...]

Recommended Friday Show: Powers (of These Are Powers), The Tony Castles, Grooms, Darlings, Class Actress, and Snakes Say Hiss at Death By Audio

There’s a whole mess of great shows happening tomorrow (Woods and Ducktails at Monster Island, Eola and friends at Silent Barn, Oh My Rockness show at Pianos), but I wanted to recommend this one.  It’s a show in memory of Ariel Panero, a promoter in New York and member of Tough Knuckles, who recently passed [...]

Recommended Tuesday Show: Japandroids, A Place To Bury Strangers, Dustin Wong, and Grooms at Death By Audio

Rested up from CMJ yet?  Great!  That’s good.  Because this is one of those “holy crap” kind of shows.  I would have recommended this show just for Grooms and Dustin Wong.  But A Place To Bury Strangers?  Japandroids?? At Death By Audio?  I thought I’d only ever get to see Japandroids again somewhere like Bowery [...]

Photos: Sisters, Grooms, and Weekends at Dead Herring

Last Saturday, Sisters had their record release show at Dead Herring.  I was incredibly pumped, as Darlings and Grooms were playing with them, and so were Weekends, who I’d never managed to actually catch live before.  My friend and I walked into the cozy apartment as Darlings were finishing up their set.  Too bad, but [...]

Recommended Saturday Show: Sisters, Weekends, Grooms, and Darlings at Dead Herring

This Sisters’ record release show at Dead Herring is going to be bompin.  Sisters, Weekends, Groom, and Darlings?  Right?  RIGHT?!  Such a great lineup in such a great space!  The perfect Saturday night. MP3: “Glue” – Sisters

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 [...]

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 [...]

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, [...]

CMJ: Wednesday's Recommended Day Party

I am TIRED so this is going to be brief (woohoo 2:27am on a Wednesday!).  If you are funemployed, you should spend your day tomorrow at Pianos.  Not only can you take advantage of their amazing happy hour dinner and drink specials, but you can watch These United States, Real Estate, Grooms, and Surfer Blood [...]

CMJ: Tuesday's Recommended Day Party

If you’re any kind of music enthusiast who lives in New York, you’re probably aware that tomorrow is the start of CMJ, New York’s very own miniature SXSW.  The conference/festival is really more for music industry types than fans, but just because you don’t have a ridiculously expensive CMJ badge doesn’t mean that you can’t [...]
