Recommended Friday Show: Powers (of These Are Powers), The Tony Castles, Grooms, Darlings, Class Actress, and Snakes Say Hiss at Death By Audio

There’s a whole mess of great shows happening tomorrow (Woods and Ducktails at Monster Island, Eola and friends at Silent Barn, Oh My Rockness show at Pianos), but I wanted to recommend this one.  It’s a show in memory of Ariel Panero, a promoter in New York and member of Tough Knuckles, who recently passed […]

Recommended Wednesday Show: The Thermals, Past Lives, and The Tony Castles at Brooklyn Bowl

It’s funny, I only started listening to The Thermals when I was in college, but I already feel like they’re one of those bands who’re always there: reliable.  Dependably good.  Sound a lot like Ted Leo.  The threesome has a great live energy and are always fun to see in person, if not entirely innovative […]

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 Tuesday Show: Franz Nicolay at Union Hall?

I’m a little bit confused about this one.  Some sources seem to indicate that The Hold Steady’s resident keyboardist and saw-player is playing at Union Hall tomorrow night.  Other sources, like his own MySpace page, do not.  As soon as I figure it out, I’ll update this.  But, just in case the show is happening, […]
