Let's talk about some good shows happening in NYC this weekend.
And let's have a good goddamn time doing so.
Thursday - September 29, 2016 A.D.
This band is GOOD for you.
Champaign, IL's Poster Children play Saint Vitus (their first NYC show in approximately a million years). One of the more underrated quiet/loud bands post ____ grunge bands of the '90s. You can count on that. (SHOW INFO // TICKETS)
Listen to this song if you need more proof and next time maybe you'll just believe this blob the first time.
Go if you like good.
But anyway, did you read the Seinfeld "9/11" spec script that's been going around?
You should. It rules.
Friday - September 30, 2016 A.D.
Please note: Russian Circles rule.
This is my favorite Yuksek song.
Do I care that it's now six years old?
I do not.
And in case you want to hear a totally boss remix why don't you blast this one too.
Lower Dens (please note: this Baltimore band led by Jana Hunter rules) play Pioneer Works in Red Hook. Guess what street Pioneer Works is on? Pioneer Street! Wonderful! It works! I love it! (SHOW INFO // TICKETS)
I'm running on empty.
Wait. What wave of emo are we living in these days? I keep losing track. Taking Back Sunday play Irving Plaza and there's no "I" in "blob." You Blew It! opens this show. I'm a fan. Pretty sure Robert DeNiro is too. (SHOW INFO // TICKETS)
"I offered you a chance when we could have done something I offered you the chance to be a cop and YOU BLEWWWWW ITTTTTT."
Saturday - October 1, 2016 A.D.
The Meadows Fest is today and tomorrow.
In a parking lot.
Oh. Cool. Maybe it'll be like this.
I regret to inform you that John Mayer will also be performing.
Please note: Blood Orange rules.
Forever and Ever.
Sunday - October 2, 2016 A.D.
Other notable Sunday shows = The Meadows at Citi Field + The Roots Picnic at Bryant Park + TacocaT at Music Hall of Williamsburg + Kishi Bashi at Webster Hall + The Temper Trap at (le) poisson rouge + Soccer Mommy at Silent Barn
Thank you for reading.
Have fun out there!
