Recommended Wednesday Show: Yuck, Total Slacker, and Fergus & Geronimo at Glasslands

Total Slakcer by Meredith Leich Yuck has been getting a lot of play in the last few weeks.  I don’t much care for the songs on their MySpace.  They have a fuzzy-but-sunny-pop guitar production sound similar to The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, but with much more simplistic, punky songwriting.  They’re on Fat Possum […]

My Favorite Songs of 2010: 40-31

Welcome to The New York Rockmarket’s end of the year list spectacular.  This is when I talk about how lists are fun but ultimately meaningless, and apologize for not posting the last few days because I’ve been compiling my lists.  This is also where I talk about favorites as opposed to best,like I did last […]

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 Saturday Show: DOM, The Smith Westerns, Total Slacker, YellowFever, and Sweet Bulbs at Station 171

Personally, I like to spend my Saturday Halloween nights at house parties with friends, not riding any trains where people in scary masks with fake weapons give me anxiety attacks.  BUT, this show almost, ALMOST makes me reconsider.  And I really hate riding the subway with people in scary masks holding fake weapons.  All five […]

Recommended Thursday Show: CMJ Day #3

At least CMJ Thursday is pretty straight-forward during the day.  It’s the I Guess I’m Floating (one of my very favorite blogs) Pianos day party.  It’s pretty much wall-to-wall worthwhile bands including Baths, Beach Fossils, Oberhofer, Teen Daze, Young Man, Braids, and Gobble Gobble. The nighttime gets much more complicated.  Of course, part of this […]

Photos: La Big Vic, Oberhofer, and Total Slacker at Monster Island Basement

Friday night at Monster Island Basement unfolded panel by panel, like one of those big road maps that people don’t use now that there’s GPS, into a pretty typical busy Friday evening.  Todd P was running around changing the songs, pouring whiskey, fiddling with the lights, while people trickled into the basement to watch La […]

Recommended Friday Show: Indian Jewelry, Oberhofer, Total Slacker, and La Big Vic at Monster Island Basement

None of these bands are new here at all, and I’ve covered Oberhofer and Total Slacker many times a piece.  La Big Vic is a more recent find, and are definitely an enormous reason to get to this show early if you haven’t seen them.  I saw Indian Jewelry at Mercury Lounge, and their drony, […]

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 […]

Photos (for Impose): Northside Part II

I always have really high hopes for Northside, and I always end up wussing out.  After a very fun Thursday evening (see yesterday’s post), I was planning on an ambitious Friday night for Northside’s busiest day.  I ended up just hanging out in South Brooklyn with my friends, which is, you know, a good thing […]

Photos (for Impose): Indian Jewelry, Effi Briest, and Total Slacker at Mercury Lounge

I never understood why epilepsy was triggered by strobe lights until last night.  Indian Jewelry shut off the lights at Mercury Lounge and turned on two very high-powered strobes.  It was dark, it was moody, and it was difficult to look at them directly, though when you did it was pretty cool.  I think that’s […]
