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 […]

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 […]

Photos (for Impose): Night Manager, La Bic Vic, and Birthdays at Shea Stadium

Last night at Shea Stadium the rain may have kept a few people away, but by 10:30 a decent-sized crowd had trickled in.  Fortunately, this late start meant that I didn’t miss any of the first bands on account of me wanting to watch Tracy Morgan unleashed on live tv, but unfortunately, it meant that […]

Photos: La Big Vic, Oberhofer, and Total Slacker at Monster Island Basement

Friday night at Monster Island Basement unfolded panel by panel, like one of those big road maps that people don’t use now that there’s GPS, into a pretty typical busy Friday evening.  Todd P was running around changing the songs, pouring whiskey, fiddling with the lights, while people trickled into the basement to watch La […]

Recommended Friday Show: Indian Jewelry, Oberhofer, Total Slacker, and La Big Vic at Monster Island Basement

None of these bands are new here at all, and I’ve covered Oberhofer and Total Slacker many times a piece.  La Big Vic is a more recent find, and are definitely an enormous reason to get to this show early if you haven’t seen them.  I saw Indian Jewelry at Mercury Lounge, and their drony, […]

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 […]
