In the epic Friday night court battle of Real Estate vs. Bruar Falls, Bruar Falls won the jury’s hearts on account of it probably being less packed.  It was still very crowded, but I’m glad that my friends and I didn’t miss the dance party that broke out when Beach Fossils played their set around […]

Recommended Friday Show: Beach Fossils, Total Slacker, Air Waves, Eternal Summers, Beachniks

This is a ridiculous show.  The entire line-up is full of my favorite up-and-coming bands.  What makes it even crazier is the Real Estate/Family Portrait/Liam the Younger/Big Troubles show happening simultaneously just down the street.  So why does this one get my pick?  Beachniks are unpracticed but cute.  Total Slacker’s Tucker is a rocking guitar […]

Recommended Thursday Show: Garotas Suecas, Golden Triangle, and Total Slacker at The Knitting Factory

This Thursday is just one of those days where there are too many bands playing.  First of all, there’s the up and coming buzz bands.  Twin Sister seem to have completely blown up just in the last few days, and they will play at Glasslands with Holiday Shores.  And Golden Girls, who have been creeping […]

Recommended Saturday Show: Darlings, The Sundelles, Total Slacker, Big Troubles, and My Teenage Stride at Cake Shop

If this show isn’t a who’s who of NYRM’s favorites, then I don’t know what is.  I love all of these bands and blog about them at least fairly incessantly, so I feel that this show requires minimal description.  It’s a fundraiser for these bands’ journeys to SXSW.  They’re only playing twenty minute sets (which […]

Recommended Wednesday Show: Quiet Hooves, Bubbly Mommy Gun, and Total Slacker at Silent Barn

I was going to recommend the Cloud Nothings/Fluffy Lumbers show at Monster Island Basement, but decided to go with this show on a recommendation from a friend.  What’s the point of only writing about the same bands all the time?  Time for some new blood.  Total Slacker we already know and love, but Quiet Hooves […]

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, […]

This was one of those shows where I felt instantly transported back to my days at Olde Club.  Good bands playing short sets, and a PBR in between each.  A great way to spend a Thursday night.  I FINALLY got to see Team Robespierre, which was good, though a bit weary as I definitely needed […]

Photos (for Impose): Reading Rainbow, Family Trees, Xray Eyeballs, Total Slacker and Easter Vomit at Death By Audio

The good people at Impose Magazine posted my photos from Wednesday night’s reading Reading Rainbow show at Death By Audio.  Head on over and check them out. I was pretty disappointed in Philly’s Reading Rainbow.  From what I’d heard of them, I’d assumed they’d be this totally rocking twosome, kicking out jams and taking names. […]

Recommended Wednesday Show: Reading Rainbow, Family Trees, Total Slacker, and X-Ray Eyeballs at Death By Audio

Wednesday at Death By Audio will be a total underground scuzzfest.  If you listen to all four of the band’s MySpaces, you’ll notice a few things in common.  Not particularly tight, poorly produced, and youthfully incorrect songs.  If you want a night of some of the coolest up-and-coming bands in Brooklyn (and Philadelphia) so you […]

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 […]
