Reigning Sound + Eleanor Friedberger + Delicate Steve + Cult of Youth + Frankie Rose + Kid Congo + Cassie Ramone + more!
Go spread the love.❤︎❤︎
Sold out already.
I didn't do it. I just blob here.
Tancred is the indie power rock project of Minneapolis' Jess Abbott (of Now, Now).
Think '90s alternative meets the dopeness of today.
Speaking of new albums that rule, Chicago rock / rollers Meat Wave have a brand new record coming out soon.
Spoiler: it rules.
5. Ryan Adams plays the Apollo Theater on Thursday, February 16th (tickets) and two shows at Rough Trade on Saturday, February 18th (early show / late show).
This week I learned that Ryan Adam and Bryan Adams have the same birthday.
Life can be pretty great sometimes.
Midwest garage rock isn't dead. The car was running and the door was closed for awhile there but thankfully The Orwells came and kicked it open just in time.
See this dope Chicago band play a free show at Rough Trade (need to purchase the album at Rough Trade first... here are the details) and never feel sad about anything ever again.
Please note: Sinkane is the CHILLEST.
Go if you like beats, grooves, good music, and s-e-x.
One of New Jersey's finest DIY punk bands play two shows at Monty Hall in Jersey City. Get out there if you know what's up.
This band rules. That's how New Brunswick do!
Best sax of your life.
This is a creative “artist + audience" collaboration. DISRUPT is about “taking risks, causing reactions, triggering emotions and finding the present together."
Cool. Just tell me where to stand, Sufjan.
Other notable NYC shows this week = Future Islands at Bowery Ballroom + PWR BTTM at Knitting Factory + Gang of Youths at Mercury Lounge + Oh Land at National Sawdust + Ex Reyes at C'mon Everybody + Teen Daze at Silent Barn + Palm at Shea Stadium + Laura Mvula at Lincoln Center + Lemuria / Cayetana at Brooklyn Night Bazaar + Jamie Lidell at Lincoln Center + XXYYXX at Warsaw
Have fun at the good shows!
