Recommended Saturday Show: These Are Powers, Grooms, The Smith Westerns, Knight School at Under the Tracks (High Line)

Sometimes does it feel like we need some new blood in this Brooklyn scene?  Even with so many bands, I’m starting to feel like I’m posting about the same ones over, and over.  Eh, who cares?  It’s because they’re good.  These Are Powers are weirdly awesome, with a great live presence.  Their music may be […]

Photos: Vampire Hands, These Are Powers, Wavves

When I mentioned I was going to Market Hotel to see Wavves, my co-worker told me, and I quote, “that place is a death trap.”  Well, she’s completely correct, but it was a very fitting venue in which to experience Wavves.  I hate to say anything bad about the place, mostly because Todd P, indie […]

Recommended Saturday Show(s): Your Weekend Wavves Strategy

This weekend is all about Wavves.  He’s pretty much the buzziest thing out there right now (along with POBPAH).  The backlash has already hit after the Pitchfork Best New Music, but I love his album.  The first track alone is such a dark, angled introduction to what I see as a an album that captures […]

I don’t have much time for a post right now- I’m trying to get out the door to Bowery Ballroom.  I figured I should throw up a post about tomorrow’s shows since I’ll probably be getting back home to my computer after midnight.  Since it’s a Monday, there’s not too much going on.  If I […]

Recommended Friday Show: BROOKLYN VS. BALTIMORE!!!!!!!!

These days, everyone is saying that Baltimore is the new old Williamsburg: broken down, not-yet-gentrified, and chock-full of bands and artists.  Dan Deacon decided to put that to the test and rounded up his merry band of Baltimorians (is that right?) to have an all-out indie rock smackdown with Brooklyn.  For Baltimore, the line-up is […]

Recommended Friday Show: Ponytail, These Are Powers, Pattern Is Movement at Bell House

This show at the newly-opened (and apparently very good) venue The Bell House is the highlight of a busy week.  I have to warn you, if you’re more of a straight-up rock person, this show probably isn’t for you.  But, it’s definitely a bill filled with some of the very best experimental rock out there […]
