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: Deerhunter and Real Estate at Webster Hall

There’s a lot going on tomorrow night.  But I have one question for you.  Have you heard Halcyon Digest?  Have you heard Halcyon Digest?  It’s beautiful.  Gorgeous.  Beautiful.  Really, listen to it if you haven’t.  Listen to it, and then read this review.  I won’t even say anymore, because he says everything I could. Regardless […]

Recommended Friday Show: Real Estate, Kurt Vile, and Big Troubles at Le Poisson Rouge

This show is a no-brainer.  I’m pretty sure that Real Estate is the artist I blog about most, and I’m pretty sure it’s getting kind of boring.  Still, this one-two-three punch of a show is not to be missed, especially because it’s taking place at Le Poisson Rouge.  That’s a nice change of pace for […]

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 […]

Cool New Video: Real Estate's "Suburban Dogs"

[vimeo http://vimeo.com/10073769] In the past year, Real Estate has quietly become one of my favorite bands.  I find myself thinking, “Budweiser, Sprite, do you feel alright?” pretty frequently, and now that the weather is getting warm again, I can’t get enough of their tunes again.  I came across this video via someone’s Twitter feed yesterday, […]

SXSW: Saturday

I know it’s Monday and that all of these performances happened on Saturday, but I never went to sleep that night, so it’s as if this post isn’t late.  Saturday brought freezing cold weather and drizzly rain to Austin, and it admittedly put a damper on everything.  After a miserable morning, I managed to obtain […]

Recommended Friday Show: Woods, Real Estate, Happy Birthday, and Wild Nothing at Music Hall of Williamsburg

The above photo is one I took of Real Estate from a Dead Herring show the first week in March of 2009.  It’s nice to look back on that post and know that they DID get the experience they needed and they will go on to do exciting things with their career.  The success of […]

Recommended Friday Show: Real Estate, The Beets, The Tony Castles, Beach Fossils, Total Slacker at St. James Church

Of course as soon as I have to go out of town, the shows for the week get exciting.  The line-up for this show reads like a who’s-who of the up-to-the-minute-super-cool-bands-of-Brooklyn.  Plus, it’s in a church, which should be a wonderful juxtaposition of God, rock and roll, and good acoustics.  Plus, the line-up really is […]

Photos: Real Estate and Babies at Brooklyn Bowl

All points converged on Real Estate last night.  After a weeks-long holiday-induced concert dry spell, it’s as if everyone finally rung in the musical New Year at Brooklyn Bowl.  With a New York Times article about the venue published the very same day, it felt like everyone who lives in Brooklyn, plus many of those […]

My Favorite 50 Songs of 2009: 30-21

To recap:  As for My Favorite 50 Songs of 2009, I made a few rules for myself.  First, a band can only appear once.  Also, this is purely about singles I enjoy.  For instance, I would never put Harlem Shakes’ Technicolor Health on my favorite albums list, but “Sunlight” made it pretty high on this list […]
