Recommended Thursday Show: Cults, Oberhofer, and Puro Instinct at Music Hall of Williamsburg

I’ll be honest, I’m mostly recommending this show because it’s free.  But that’s fantastic, because this is a pretty damn good quality show for no money!  You have to RSVP here, and entrance is based on capacity, but Cults are fun and Oberhofer is one of those deservedly-hot-right-now young bands that it seems like we’ve […]

My Favorite Songs of 2010: 30-21

Welcome to The New York Rockmarket’s end of the year list spectacular.  This is when I talk about how lists are fun but ultimately meaningless, and apologize for not posting the last few days because I’ve been compiling my lists.  This is also where I talk about favorites as opposed to best, like I did last […]

Recommended Friday Show: CMJ Day #4

It’s time to face facts.  You have some tough choices to make during the day on Friday.  First of all, there’s some great NYRM-approved bands playing at Cake Shop.  Rooftop Vigilantes, Your Youth, and Yellow Ostrich.  If that were a show during normal times, it would in and of itself be a can’t-miss.  I’m pretty […]

Recommended Thursday Show: CMJ Day #3

At least CMJ Thursday is pretty straight-forward during the day.  It’s the I Guess I’m Floating (one of my very favorite blogs) Pianos day party.  It’s pretty much wall-to-wall worthwhile bands including Baths, Beach Fossils, Oberhofer, Teen Daze, Young Man, Braids, and Gobble Gobble. The nighttime gets much more complicated.  Of course, part of this […]

Recommended Monday Show: Beach Fossils, Grass Widow, and Oberhofer at Old Firehouse

There’s nothing we haven’t already covered in this show, but it’s definitely the most intriguing thing going down this Monday.  Although, I suppose the first part of that sentence isn’t actually true.  A band called Ovens is actually playing, which turns out to be a really difficult band to Google.  Anyone have a MySpace link […]

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, […]

Photos: Blair and Oberhofer at Pianos

When Blair (both the name of the band and the name of the singer/songwriter) took to the stage last night at Pianos, an overwhelming sense of familiarity seeped into the room.  I knew I knew her from somewhere, but couldn’t quite place her.  Did my band play with their band some time?  Had I seen […]

Recommended Tuesday Show: Oberhofer and Blair

Sorry for lack of weekend posting.  Things were busy and then there just weren’t really any shows going on today to write about.  Tomorrow go check out Oberhofer at Pianos.  I’m not totally sold on his slightly-lo-fi guitar rock, but I’m pretty intrigued by the tracks up on his MySpace (and the one I posted […]

MP3 Roundup: Air Waves, Oberhofer, Roommates, and tonstartssbandht

Happy 2010!  I’m so excited for this brand new year behind us.  We can put the Anco/GBear/DProjectors love triangle behind us and move on to new things.  I meant to post yesterday, to ring in the first business day of the New Year, but I was too busy seeing Julian Lynch at Bruar Falls (pictures […]
