My Favorite Albums of 2010

I almost didn’t make this list.  I mean, come on.  It’s New Year’s Eve.  No one cares anymore.  Everyone’s just getting psyched for Ariel Pink or Titus tonight (you should definitely go to one of those shows, by the way), and looking forward to the whole music cycle starting over again in 2011.  I swear […]

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, […]

Photos: Harlem, Thomas Function, and Girls At Dawn at Monster Island Basement

This post is a bit past its prime, since the show happened on Friday.  Still, the evening is worth recounting.  It was an electric night in Williamsburg; people seemed to be spilling out of every bar and restaurant, enjoying the nice weather.  Monster Island basement was no exception, though the crowded venue seemed more like […]

Recommended Friday Show: Harlem, Thomas Function, and Girls At Dawn at Monster Island Basement

This is another one of those shows moved from the much bigger Market Hotel to much smaller Monster Island Basement.  Harlem’s new album, Hippies, is garage-tacular, ripping off one hook-laden rocker after another.  The photo from above is when I saw them at Mercury Lounge the day of that crazy snowstorm, where they played a […]

Photos (for Impose): Harlem and Siberia at Mercury Lounge

I took a few photos at Harlem’s Mercury Lounge show yesterday.  If you’d like to see them, you can head on over to Impose to check them out.  It was a good show, but I’ve come to expect nothing less from Harlem.  Despite the blizzard going on outside, they played to a decently full room, […]

Recommended Wednesday Show: Harlem and The Girls At Dawn at Mercury Lounge

I just got home from the Cake Shop show.  It was pretty good, but I am tired.  I’ll post those pics tomorrow as soon as I am able.  As for tomorrow, the optimal show is most definitely Harlem at Mercury Lounge.  I don’t really like seeing bands there, but these guys will put on a […]

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, […]
