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, [...]

Recommended Saturday Show: Impose Magazine Party at BKLYN Yard

Impose Magazine is throwing a really, really great party Saturday night.  Take a break from After the Jump Fest and check out some of my absolute favorite Brooklyn, New Jersey, and Baltimore bands.  Air Waves, Screaming Females, Sharon Van Etten, Boogie Boarder, Future Islands…basically the entire lineup should be entirely entertaining.

Recommended Friday Show: ??!!!!#@$$**????

It’s official.  Every good show this week is happening on Friday.  This is one of the first times where I am really, truly undecided on what to recommend.  Luckily, my own band is playing so I won’t have to make any tough decisions myself, but I’ll try to give you as much information as possible [...]

Recommended Wednesday Show: A Dead Tie!!

I think this is the first time this has ever happened, but I’m at complete deadlock for Wednesday’s recommended show.  You’d honestly have a great time at either of these shows, and it’s a shame that they’re both on the same night.  You can catch Wye Oak and Sharon Van Etten at Mercury Lounge.  But [...]

Recommended Sunday Show: Pwrfl Power and Sharon Van Etten + More at Glasslands

This Sunday there’s a lovely little singer-songwriter shindig going down at Glasslands.  Pwrfl Power is a quirky guitar playin’, strange singin’, vaguely Mountain Goats-y artist.  I talk about Sharon Van Etten all the time because she plays all the time and is wonderful, but again, check her out.  She’s got a hauntingly gorgeous voice.  Other [...]

Recommended Thursday Show: Sharon Van Etten and BAM – two great things for the price of one!

I know, I know, this blog gives Sharon Van Etten A LOT of love.  But that’s because she deserves it.  Van Etten is one of the most haunting singer-songwriters I’ve ever seen, and I hope everyone falls in love with her, too.  This show is actually two shows at Monkeytown in Brooklyn, one at 7:30 [...]

Recommended Tuesday Show: Wildbirds & Peacedrums

I posted about Lykke Li yesterday, but it seems fair to do a separate post on her tourmates, Wildbirds & Peacedrums.  They’re a husband-wife duo (Another one?! What’s up with all these people in love making music together?) from Sweden, and they’re pretty darn cool.  I’ve heard amazing reviews from their recent UK tour, so [...]

Recommended Saturday Show: Loney Dear at Sound Fix Records AND Union Hall

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q0O8E0uTWYs&hl=en&fs=1] As always, there’s a whole lot going on this Saturday.  The Thermals, The So So Glos, The Muggabears, Takka Takka, Sharon Van Etten, and Telepathe are all playing shows.  However, I have to recommend one of Loney Dear’s shows.  Loney Dear is a Swedish singer-songwriter who is opening for Andrew Bird on his upcoming [...]

Sharon Van Etten at Glasslands 1/15

Thursday’s (tomorrow’s) recommended show of the day is Sharon Van Etten at Glasslands.  Van Etten is a hauntingly beautiful singer-songwriter with a wailing voice that will leave you captivated.  Sometimes when I find myself watching these types of shows my mind drifts off while the artist strums the guitar, thinking about groceries, taking out the [...]
