On Sunday, November 2, Deerhoof were the surprise headliners at Death By Audio, the Brooklyn venue that is closing up shop this Saturday night.

The show was one of four in New York that week for the experimental rock group, who recently released their rock solid new album La Isla Bonita.

Andrew St. Clair was at the show, and captured the evening in photos. Find his shots posted below, which also include opening acts Father Murphy, Dan Firel, and Palberta.

On Saturday November 1 L.A. three-piece The Glitch Mob returned to New York City for the first time since Governors Ball to play at The Hammerstein Ballroom. The stop was a continuation of the tour for their new album Love Death Immortality, which was released earlier in the year.

Our photographer Dana Pacifico was at the show and captured the performance in a wonderful set of photos. Find them posted below.

After catching the first night of Wilco’s sold out 3-night run at The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, I was fortunate to attend the third night thanks to a bit of good luck and kindness from our very own Dana Pacifico.

The show continued the celebration of the 20th anniversary of one of America’s finest, and the setlist was much more favorable than the first night (in my opinion). It’s amazing that Wilco played 90 songs throughout all three nights, doing no repeats, making each show truly special and unique for all those lucky enough to be in attendance.

Last Monday night Montreal’s Stars stopped by for an intimate showing at Music Hall of Williamsburg in support of their newly released album No One Is Lost. This show was their second in New York in the last few month, with the band playing in Central Park in October for the first ever Modern Sky Festival.

Jayson Yee was at their show in Brooklyn last week, and got some shots of the action. Catch a photo gallery of the performance posted below.

The name Chloe Locarro may sound familiar to you here, as she’s photographed a handful of shows for us on these very pages. So I’m very proud and honored to premiere a short film that Chloe has made to the music of Someone Still Love You Boris Yeltsin’s fantastic track “Fly By Wire.”

It’s a lovely piece, and it gets an even lovelier visual memory thanks to the creative mind of Chloe. The video captures the essence of the song, captured lost love and youthful timelessness. It’s so good that it’s hard to believe its not the official video for the band, because it really should be. It’s one of my favorite music videos of the year, without question.

You can enjoy the film below, which is posted below (along with some production photos of the video, graciously provided by Chloe and her team)

Believe it or not, Wilco have been around for 20 years. It’s been a long and healthy career for one of America’s best bands (if not the best), and late in October they brought the celebration to New York for a completely sold out three night one at the prestigious Capitol Theatre in Port Chester.

The one and only time I saw Wilco previously was at Terminal 5 in 2012. So this was a step up in every way. The show was billed as “An Evening With Wilco” which meant no openers, and an epic 30-song performance that flirted with three hours in length. If you’re a Wilco fan, this was pretty much a dream come true.

With only a week or so of shows left, each show at Death By Audio is becoming more and more of a rare treat. The first show of the Brooklyn DIY venues last month featured a pretty stacked bill comprised of 4 bands who were reuniting to say goodbye to the venue. The lineup featured sets from: Dirty On Purpose, Sisters, French Kicks, Travis Johnson and Darlings.

Andrew St. Clair was there to capture the evening in photos. Find his photo gallery of all five artists posted below.
