Recommended Thursday Show: Morning Benders, Twin Sisters, and Cults at Webster Hall

This show is going to be so, so pleasant.  Cults?  Pleasant.  Twin Sister?  Pleasant.  Morning Benders? Super pleasant.  Three good bands, all of them easy to listen to.  This show won’t necessarily challenge your music instincts (wait until Saturday’s Black Dice show for that), but it’s definitely going to be fun.  Plus, Morning Benders really […]

Recommended Friday Show: Twin Sister at Rooftop Films

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p10UE3O8s24&hl=en_US&fs=1&] Tonight is the kick-off of Rooftop Film’s Summer Series.  The theme is short films, and the band is Twin Sister.  I went to last year’s opening (same theme with Cymbals Eat Guitars) and it was one of the best nights I’ve ever had in New York.  Twin Sister couldn’t be hotter right now, and […]

Recommended Wednesday Show: The Morning Benders and Twin Sister at Mercury Lounge

I’ve been listening to the Morning Benders’ album a lot this past week.  I’m trying to reconcile the way I feel about it to the way I feel about their live show.  I think the album is okay.  It’s definitely got some mature songwriting, some interesting stuff, but it fails to grab me or hold […]

Recommended Friday Show: tUnE-YaRds, Twin Sister, Xiu Xiu, and Zola Jesus at Bowery Ballroom

What a star-studded Friday night.  On an evening of about six good concerts, this one at Bowery Ballroom is the place to be.  First of all, Twin Sister’s 80s pop tinged music is making a huge splash right now, so this is the time to go see them.  tUnE-YaRds was on the tip of everyone’s […]

SXSW 2010: Top Ten Favorite Performances

There’s so much going on at sxsw that it’s impossible to see even a sliver of what the week has to offer.  That’s why doing a top ten performances of the week list is sort of silly.  On the other hand, I saw some excellent new bands that I’d like to draw a little extra […]

SXSW 2010: Thursday

Yesterday was a complete SXSW day.  Downtown at noon and not home again until 3AM.  Since it was such a late night I didn’t get a chance to blog before I started falling asleep sitting up at my computer, so this post will be a bit abbreviated for the time being (gotta get back downtown […]

Photos: Big Troubles, Twin Sister, Pigeons, Run DMT, and Alice Cohen at The Studio at Webster Hall

There’s a lot of ways to say what I’m going to say about the show last night, but I’d like to frame it around Webster Hall.  There’s really no way around it.  Alice Cohen, Run DMT, and Pigeons did not put on successful shows yesterday.  Run DMT started off the evening as a solo act. […]

Recommended Thursday Show: Big Troubles and Twin Sister at The Studio at Webster Hall

It’s very late and I’ve posted about both of these bands recently, so let’s consider this a post about Chocolate Bobka (link to the right).  This show tomorrow is curated by Chocolate Bobka, and I personally think he has the most exciting up-and-coming music blog right now.  The guy’s taste is impeccable (though sometimes runs […]
