Recommended Monday Show: Wavves, The Smith Westerns, and Total Slacker at Bowery Ballroom

Wavves hater or not, you have to admit that his new album, King of the Beach, is at least a lot of fun.  Personally, I think it’s more than that.  I might even say it’s a perfect slacker anthem album, and it will be on repeat in my apartment until the weather stops making me […]

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 Wednesday Show: Titus Andronicus, The So So Glos, and The Smith Westerns at Monster Island Basement

This is the kickoff night of the Titus Andronicus/So So Glos fall tour.  A truly wonderful pairing that’s complemented at Monster Island Basement by The Smith Western’s own brand of modern punk- jangly, scratchy, with some Richard Hell snarl thrown in for good measure.  Listen to the anthemic “Be My Girl” below.  Titus and The […]
