Concert Announcement

Gene Clark

Gene Clark’s (of The Byrds) 1974 album No Other was one of those albums that was initially a commercial failure, but went on to become a highly regarded cult classic. It’s so beloved that some members of prolific indie bands will come together to perform the entire album live on tour.

The band will include Alex Scally & Victoria Legrand of Beach House, Robin Pecknold (Fleet Foxes), Daniel Rossen (Grizzly Bear), Hamilton Leithauser (The Walkmen), Jenn Wasner (Wye Oak), Iain Matthews (Plainsong/ Fairport Convention), and more.

The tour will take place late in January, and will bring them here in New York on January 25 at MHOW. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday at noon (they’re on AMEX presale now).

Find the list of tour dates posted below.

Jan. 22 – Philadelphia, PA – Union Transfer
Jan. 23 – Baltimore, MD – Floristree
Jan. 24 – Washington, DC – 9:30 Club
Jan. 25 – New York, NY – Music Hall of Williamsburg

Rubblebucket will make their return to New York tomorrow night (11/21) with a performance at Music Hall of Williamsburg. This show is a special one for the band and their fans as it’s singer Kalmia Traver’s return to New York since her treatment for ovarian cancer.

You don’t want to miss the show. The band have been on my radar ever since I caught them at Bonnaroo two summers ago, and they completely caught me off guard and blew me away with their rapturous live energy and passion. Just hearing “Came Out Of A Lady” live is enough to get me excited about the prospect of seeing these guys. It’s been too long, and I cannot wait.

If you’re in town tomorrow night, I recommend coming out and seeing what these guys can do. Tickets are still on sale, at a reasonable price of $15 ($17 the day of show). The fun starts at 9 p.m. (doors @ 8).

Here’s “Came Out Of A Lady” for those of you not in the know.

Watch MGMT Play Fallon | Announce Barclays Center Show

By Will Oliver, September 12th 2013

MGMT stopped by Jimmy Fallon last night to play some music and announce that they are playing at Barclays Center on December 13. It’s their biggest New York show to date.

They played two new song from their new self-titled album (which just came out this week). The first was “Plenty Of Girls In The Sea” which saw them in actual swim gear and flippers. Then they played “Alien Days” next, this time in normal clothing. But Andrew starts the performance by taking in some helium from a balloon to get the beginning of the song just right.

Find both performances below.

‘Inside Llewyn Davis’ NYC Concert Announced

By Will Oliver, August 20th 2013

Inside Llewyn Davis is a movie about a folk rock musician who tries to make it in New York during the 1960’s. It’s directed by The Coen Brothers, naturally making it one of my most anticipated films of the year.

With its connection to music, it’s only natural that a concert has been announced on September 29 at Town Hall in New York City. Put together by The Coen Brothers and T Bone Burnett, who produced the films soundtrack, it will features live performances by the films stars Oscar Isaac, John Goodman, and Carey Mulligan. Unfortunately, no Justin Timberlake. There will also be appearances and performances by the following musicians: Jack White, Conor Oberst, Joan Baez, Patti Smith, Colin Meloy (The Decemberists), Marcus Mumford, The Avett Brothers, Rhiannon Giddens (Carolina Chocolate Drops), Lake Street Dive, Milk Carton Kids, Punch Brothers, Secret Sisters, Gillian Welch & Dave Rawlings, and Willie Watson.

Tickets go on sale tomorrow at 12 p.m. Find out more about the event over at Filmtastic.

Our friends over at The Wild Honey Pie and Consequence Of Sound have teamed up to put on a super rad event called Summer Camp. It sports a day of live performances from Caveman, Yellow Ostrich, Widowspeak, Pearl and the Beard, Belle Mare, and Vensaire. The event will take place at a lakefront property about an hour north of NYC, where they will have all kinds of cool events such as: free food, free beer, Burt’s Bees, Steve’s Ice Cream, KIND granola bars, Justin’s peanut/almond butter candy bars, arts & crafts, pool party, waterfront, volleyball, boating, and s’mores.

Sounds like an epic day to me. This will be a super intimate event, with space for only 100 “campers”. However you can RSVP to the event to be entered for a chance to attend (with a guest). The only thing is you need to be 21+.

What are you waiting for? Head over to The Wild Honey Pie and RSVP.

Tomorrow: Caveman @ Webster Hall

By Will Oliver, April 9th 2013

For me, Caveman are one of the most underrated bands in the game right now. They deserve a hell of a lot more praise than they get. One trip to one of their outstanding live shows will help you understand.

They’re on tour celebrating the release of their new s/t album, which is not one to miss. Tomorrow night they make their triumphant return live to NYC with a stop at Webster Hall. I have never been let down by one of their live shows, and I don’t think tomorrow night will be any different.

Tickets for the show are still on sale, and available to purchase right here.

You can be you’ll see me there tomorrow night. Sorry in advance if I happen to be in front of you.

Jay-Z & Justin Timberlake have announced the Legends Of The Summer tour that will take them aroud legendary stadiums such as Yankee Stadium and Fenway Park. The tour will kick off in mid July and end in August . Tickets go on sale February 28 for all the shows except at Yankee Stadium. Those details will come soon.

I enjoyed “Suit & Tie” more and more with every listen, but “Mirrors”, the latest cut shared from The 20/20 Experience is incredible. If the rest of the album is of this quality, it’s going to be a killer.

Listen to “Mirrors” and find the tour dates below.

This year will be my first at SXSW. I’m excited to see what will happen, but I’m even more excited to be a part of a great party/showcase. My buddy Zach over at the incredible We Listen For You is teaming up with sonaBLAST! to give us one hell of a free unofficial party.

The show will feature an acoustic set from Rod Argent & Colin Blunstone of The Zombies, Et Tu Brucé, Dent May, Nerves Junior, Shugo Tokumaru, The Pass, Royal Bangs, Conveyor, and Miracles Of Modern Science. Hip Hatchet & Christopher Denny will be around all day delivering acoustic sets.

Zach asked us to sponsor the show, and how could I say no with a lineup like that. Some other great blogs are also on board: The 405, Pretty Much Amazing, The Music Ninja, and The Decibel Tolls.

RSVP here. You don’t want to miss this show, it’s gonna be a good one.
