Photos: Beach Fossils, Christmas Island, and The Beets at Cake Shop

I’m no Lester, but just this once, fuck it.  Cake Shop was filled with the local cast of regulars on Tuesday night.  I drifted down into the basement just as the first few flakes of this ridiculously overblown storm were beginning to fall outside, and was greeted by an already busy downstairs with the now-familair […]

Recommended Tuesday Show: The Beets, Christmas Island, Beach Fossils, and Total Slacker at Cake Shop

The Beets, Beach Fossils, and Total Slacker are all well-tread territory on this blog by now.  I like all three of them, and they’re clawing their way out of the usual Brooklyn DIY venue (or Queens venue, as the case may be for The Beets) to play this show at Cake Shop.  It’s Christmas Island, […]

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: Magic Kids, Yellow Fever, Fergus and Geronimo, and The Beets at Market Hotel

Another Saturday, another show at Market Hotel.  I came out primarily to see The Magic Kids, whose song “Hey Boy” has been circulating around the internets, providing toe-tapping confusion about who these Memphis, Tennessee kids are.  I learned at the show that they’re also pretty much the same band as the Barbaras, whose myspace is […]

Recommended Saturday Show: Oxford Collapse and The Beets at Collective Hardware

There is A LOT to do this Saturday.  Siren Fest will be in full swing at Coney Island.  If you don’t mind braving the heat, crowds, and bad sound, then make sure to check out Micachu and the Shapes, Bear Hands, and Japandroids, not to mention Built to Spill.  Later that night, our good friend […]

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: The Beets, Wild Yaks, The Subjects, and pow wow! at Red Star Bar

I’m gonna be honest, I’m completely exhausted.  I don’t really have the energy to put too much effort into this post.  I’m picking this show for Friday because half of these bands just made it onto L Magazine’s so-so “8 NYC Bands You Need To Hear Now” list.  Plus the other two bands are very […]
