Recommended Friday Show: Girls and Real Estate at Bowery Ballroom

You’ve probably heard of Girls already.  They recently received “Best New Music” on Pitchfork and their debut album is so appealingly poppy in a surfy, edgy way that everyone seems to be talking about them as a “new favorite band.”  Seriously, if you haven’t checked them out yet you definitely should; they really do have […]

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 […]

Recommended Weekend Shows: The Holiday Breakdown (plus four great MP3s)

Of course the one weekend when I decide I’m going to take a break from indie-rockdom and get out of this city is the weekend that someone decides to pack every sweet band into all at once.  Doesn’t it always seem to work that way?  If your 4th of July plans aren’t taking you away […]

Recommended Friday Show: Kurt Vile, Girls, and Real Estate at Monster Island Basement

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MSN6bI_n8s8&hl=en&fs=1&color1=0x234900&color2=0x4e9e00] This is the kind of show that you go to so that in six months when all these bands are huge, you can say that you saw them in that tiny venue in Brooklyn six months ago.  Of course, in a night that’s full of good music all over this city, social capital isn’t […]

Recommended Wednesday Show: Real Estate at The Annex

I hope everyone had a great Memorial Day weekend.  I know I did, except for the break from blogging.  I didn’t have too much time to myself to use the computer at my parent’s house, but I’m back in the BK now.  There were a lot of good shows over the weekend I’m sorry to […]

Recommended Saturday Show: Real Estate and Luke Temple at Santos Party House

Since I first posted about Real Estate awhile back, they’ve played a bazillion shows and are now at the tip of everyone’s lips.  Their laid-back brand of lo-fi is the perfect antitdote to all of this punkier Wavves nonsense, and will provide the perfect soundtrack to your indie rock summer.  Luke Temple is the man […]

Recommended Saturday Show(s): Your Weekend Wavves Strategy

This weekend is all about Wavves.  He’s pretty much the buzziest thing out there right now (along with POBPAH).  The backlash has already hit after the Pitchfork Best New Music, but I love his album.  The first track alone is such a dark, angled introduction to what I see as a an album that captures […]

Photos: Real Estate and Dinowalrus at Dead Herring

Dead Herring is a great place to see bands.  The cozy apartment is warm and welcoming with colorful streamers running across the ceiling and fresh-baked cookies coming out of the oven.  There’s even a perfect loft space to perch on, peering down on the bands from above.  Real Estate was the first band of the […]

Recommended Friday Show: Boogie Boarder and Real Estate at The Jackson

The Jackson is a brand-new Todd P venue alllll the way out in Long Island City, but these two bands make it worth the trip.  Boogie Boarder plays spastic, schizophrenic noise rock (I also freaking love the artwork that goes along with all of their music).  Their live energy is incredible and they put on […]
