Recommended Wednesday Show: The Beets, Beachniks, and Las Robertas at Union Hall

The drought is over! The prodigal music industry employees return! While they’re all nursing their hangovers (both from alcohol and tacos) and sleeping all day because they had a 6AM flight back from Austin on Saturday night, we will jubilantly rejoice at the first good shows in what seems like a long, long time. Take [...]

Recommended Saturday Show: The Beets and Wild Yaks at Den Pedro

This Saturday is Brooklyn Ski Club’s 5th Year Anniversary party at Don Pedro.  The Beets and Wild Yaks are both playing (didn’t Wild Yaks break up?  Am I confused?), both of whom play super-fun, high energy shows.  Plus, everyone knows that Don Pedro events usually turn into shit shows, thanks to their uber-friendly bartenders.  I [...]

Recommended Friday Show: The Beets, Total Slacker, The Babies, Eternal Summers, and Night Manager at 285 Kent

This show is a greatest hits parade of all my favorite Brooklyn bands that I’ve seen way too many times.  For example, basically any show you go to in a small venue in New York is going to have The Beets, some form of Total Slacker, some form The Babies, or Night Manager on the [...]

Recommended Wednesday Show: The Beets, Airwaves, Easter Vomit, and Rifle Recoil

Yes, yes, yes we all know that we love The Beets and Airwaves and Easter Vomit (Rifle Recoil is new to me, their MySpace page reveals some extremely eclectic, extremely quirky, possibly cool jams).  But this show is important because it’s a benefit for Austin’s Yellow Fever.  Lead singer, Jennifer Moore, accidentally tried to bring a [...]

Recommended Tuesday Show: The Beets and German Measles at Death By Audio

The Beets are always a good time.  There’s a few you’re guaranteed any time the Beets come back to town.  Truly delightful jangly songs.  A high-energy performance.  A whole bunch of their friends who are going to come and be a little drunk and make sure that everyone’s having fun.  I’ve never been to a [...]

Recommended Friday Show: Alex Bleeker & The Freaks, Coasting, and The Beets at Monster Island Basement

I’m a big Alex Bleeker and The Freaks fan.  They played my number one favorite set of SXSW this past year.  Of course their sound is more complicated than this, but their Band-era vibe makes me so, so happy.  They obviously can’t sound quite like The Band, or have the same ethos- that moment in [...]

Recommended Thursday Show: Beach Fossils, Woven Bones, and The Beets at Bruar Falls

This show should feel like coming home.  I haven’t done a Recommended show post in several days, but that’s because I didn’t really feel like there was anything worth your time.  My Sunday at Northside led me from one disappointing musical moment to another (so many bad bands!), that I fell into a bit of [...]

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 [...]

Recommended Sunday Show: Love Is All, Beach Fossils, and The Beets at The Knitting Factory

Love Is All, from Sweden, just released a brand new happenin’ album.  It’s called Two Thousand and Ten Injuries, and it’s all over the place in the very best way.  Punk bass lines morph into sparse, chanting, joyous melodies and vocal riffs.  It’s really cool stuff, and I hear they put on a very energetic [...]

SXSW 2010: Friday

I keep trying to find a moral in SXSW.  The point is to be in a band, and the rest of us are just plebeian followers.  Go home and practice your instrument until you can do it yourself.  Go home and practice your writing until you become a better critic.  Go home and give up [...]
