Recommended Thursday: Local Natives and Suckers at Bowery Ballroom

Honestly, Local Natives don’t excite me all that much on record.  But live?  Gorgeous, gorgeous vocal harmonies.  I remember being blown away by their singing during CMJ at tiny Pianos, and I can only imagine how beautifully they’ll fill up Bowery Ballroom.  Suckers have sounded good recently, too.  Their IAMSOUND show during CMJ was running [...]

SXSW 2010: Wednesday

Maximization.  It’s very easy to let SXSW become about maximization.  Half of your energy is spent figuring out where to go and when in order to see as many bands as possible while schmoozing the people you want to schmooze.  This really is a crummy way to see music.  My goal for the day was [...]

CMJ: Thursday Night's Recommended Shows

Thursday night there’s not really one place with a line-up of truly stand out bands that I’ve never seen before.  It’s probably going to be the running around from place to place the entire night.  Still, the Delancey has a pretty great lineup if you’re feeling kind of tired.  Male Bonding, Bear Hands, Delorean, The [...]

CMJ: Wednesday Night's Recommended Shows

Recommended Tuesday Show: The Pains of Being Pure at Heart and Suckers at Bowery Ballroom

Two bands that I’ve given lots of love to recently?  At the Bowery Ballroom?  Suckers and Pains of Being Pure at Heart. Tuesday’s show of the day, enough said. MP3: “Everything WIth You” – The Pains of Being Pure at Heart

SXSW Sampler, Part I

I’ve been a bit busy this week preparing for SXSW.  I want to bring you the very best coverage I can (partying it up with Racheal Ray and The Hold Steady) so I’ve been lacking a bit on the writing this week.  I’d like to attempt to make it up to you by putting together [...]

Hot New Band Alert: Suckers

Suckers have been playing around Brooklyn and New York with bands like Yeasayer, MGMT, and Chairlift for over two years now, but haven’t quite broken out yet.  Check out the band now – it’s only a matter of time before they blow up, too.  With now-typical slurred indie vocals, guitar tones that remind me of [...]
