Among the albums released in 2017, The Navigator by Hurray for the Riff Raff (released via ATO Records) and Out of the Storm by Waxahatchee (released via Merge Records) were two of my personal favorites. Much to my delight, the two acts embarked on a co-headlining tour this past April which found them playing the New York area twice. I caught the first of the two shows, which took place at Warsaw in Greenpoint on April 13th. Accompanying Waxahatchee and Hurray for the Riff Raff as the opening act was Spacebomb Records recording artist Bedouine.

Just one day later, they came to Brooklyn to celebrate the release of the album with support coming from both Cayetana and Snail Mail.

Our photographer Joe Saturday was there to capture all the action from all three acts, find them all posted in the gallery below, along with the setlist.

Sleater-Kinney at Terminal 5 (December 13, 2015)

In mid-December Sleater-Kinney closed out their wonderful comeback tour in support of their rather awesome new album No Cities To Love with five shows in New York City. They ranged from all shapes and sizes, and I ended up catching one of the largest shows as well as the smallest. The former went down at Terminal 5 on December 13, my second time seeing them there in 2015.

This was one of the best sounding shows that I’ve ever heard at Terminal 5, a compliment to the venue (who aren’t known for it) and of course, the band and their sound team. They came out firing on all cylinders delivering a fiery performance that stretched into both the past and present. It also helps that their new album is actually good, considering a good chunk of the set was featured from it. This was also the first show that featured a guest cameo from Carrie Brownstein’s Portlandia partner in crime Fred Arimsen, who led the band through a fun cover of The B-52’s “Rock Lobster,” which was every bit as fun as it sounds.

Find some more photos from their Terminal 5 performance posted below, along with shots of Waxahatchee, who opened the show.

Ground Control Touring 15th Anniversary at Webster Hall (December 2, 2015)

On December 2, booking agency Ground Control Touring threw a giant party at Webster Hall celebrating their 15th anniversary. What better way to celebrate than taking up all three venues of Webster Hall (the main room, Marlin Room and The Studio at Webster Hall) and filling them up with all the great talent on your own roster.

The mini-festival of sorts was a cool idea that took advantage of the Webster Hall layout. Only, it was definitely way oversold and unless you camped out at one stage or left very early in the middle of a performance, you had no shot of getting anywhere close to the stage. So in that sense, it definitely was very reminiscent of a music festival.

But it’s hard to complain when you got to see Parquet Courts and Lee Ranaldo play some Sonic Youth together, or see bands like Superchunk, Kurt Vile, Woods, Screaming Females, Porches and Frankie Cosmos all within a couple of hours of each other.

It may be another couple of years until we see Ground Control back at it again for their 20th, but it will be interesting to see if any other companies follow suite in the next couple of months.

Speedy Oritz at Pier 84 (July 9, 2015)

On July 9, Pier 84’s Hudson River Rocks series presented a rock solid free show featuring Waxahatchee, Speedy Ortiz, and Weyes Blood. Only cloudy skies and the threat of rain put the evening of music at risk.

Skies held out when I got there for Speedy Ortiz, who delivered a tight set as expected, playing a 12-song set mixed between their new album Foil Deer (out via Carpark Records), as well as their 2013 debut Major Arcana. While it was a very different atmosphere from theri sold out Bowery Ballroom show from earlier in the year, Sadie Dupuis and the rest of the band had no problem captivating the crowd, not always an easy thing to do at a free show.

Unfortunately during the wait for Waxahatchee the weather took a turn for the worst, and they had to cancel the show. I have still yet to see Katie Crutchfield’s band perform live. No big deal as they’ll be back in New York soon enough, but it was still disappointing nevertheless.

Find the setlist below, along with some photos from Speedy Ortiz’s performance.
