Recommended Friday Show: ??!!!!#@$$**????

It’s official.  Every good show this week is happening on Friday.  This is one of the first times where I am really, truly undecided on what to recommend.  Luckily, my own band is playing so I won’t have to make any tough decisions myself, but I’ll try to give you as much information as possible […]

Recommended Weekend Shows: The Holiday Breakdown (plus four great MP3s)

Of course the one weekend when I decide I’m going to take a break from indie-rockdom and get out of this city is the weekend that someone decides to pack every sweet band into all at once.  Doesn’t it always seem to work that way?  If your 4th of July plans aren’t taking you away […]

Two Cool Videos: "To Clean" by Woods and "I Start To Run" by White Denim

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tyjcFKl86Oo&hl=en&fs=1&color1=0x234900&color2=0x4e9e00] Woods and White Denim are two bands that I really dig, so I figured posting their two new music videos would be a great way to get to talk about them on my blog.  The Woods video for “To Clean” is above.  I recently saw them open for The Vaselines at Bowery Ballroom, and […]

Photos: Woods and The Vaselines at Bowery Ballroom

The Vaselines are a Scottish band that formed in 1986, the year I was born.  I admit I’m not terribly well-versed in what happened between now and then; I found out about the show from another music blog.  Regardless, I am very glad that 23 years later I was able to go to the Bowery […]

Recommended Sunday Show: Times New Viking, Woods, and Blank Dogs at Market Hotel

If this isn’t one of the most stacked Sunday shows I’ve seen in awhile then, well, I’ll eat my foot.  But it is, so I won’t have to.  You’ve got one very established lo-fi band and two of the buzziest bands on the scene.  I saw Times New Viking open for Deerhunter last year, and […]

Nice New Song: "The Dark" by Woods

I’ve blogged about Woods a few times, but only in the context of them playing with other bands.  When I heard this song on Gorilla vs. Bear earlier today, I decided it was time to give them the full-on attention they deserve.  Apparently, this is the b-side for a new seven-inch.  If this is the […]

Recommended Sunday Show: This Is Getting Repetitive…

I know I just recommended this show for Friday, but the Wavves, Nodzzz, Blank Dogs, and Woods tour is playing again in New York.  This time they’re at Barnard College’s radio station.  Tickets are $5 and doors open at 1PM.  If you haven’t seen them yet, then go, go, go!!

Recommended Friday Show: WAVVES, Woods, Blank Dogs, Nodzzz, and Gary War at Market Hotel

This is one of those “but all the cool kids are going to be there” kind of shows.  WAVVES is the type of band that would probably get made fun of on Hipster Runoff, but despite the (over) hype, he’s pretty darn good.  WAVVES is from California and plays incredibly lo-fi, buzzy surf rock that […]

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 […]
