Concert Preview

Psych rock legend Arthur Brown is bringing his The Crazy World of Arthur Brown performance to the U.S. for their first tour in 47 (!) years. For fans of psych rock in general, this is not a show to be missed as many of the psych rock groups of today have been influenced by the group in some way.

They’ll stop in to New York for a performance at Le Poisson Rouge this Thursday, February 23. The show is not sold out yet, but based on how long it’s been since they last graced us in NYC, I would recommend you move fast on these. You can buy your tickets now right here. Electric Citizen will open the show.

Come back soon as we will have photos from the show coming very soon.

Preview: Cherry Glazerr at Bowery Ballroom

By Will Oliver, January 17th 2017

Los Angeles indie rockers Cherry Glazerr will release their great new album Apocalipstick this Friday, January 20, via Secretly Canadian.

They are currently on tour in support of the new album, brining the songs to life tomorrow, January 18, for a headlining performance at Bowery Ballroom. We last saw them open for Best Coast at Terminal 5, and even as the openers they nearly stole the whole damn show. We’re excited to hear all the new songs live, especially at the always wonderful Bowery. Opening the show is Slow Hollows and Mega Bog.

There are still some tickets for the show left, but move quick as I’m sure they won’t last long.

Governors Ball 2017 Announces Lineup

By Will Oliver, January 4th 2017

We may be only a few days into the new year but that means it’s time for all the music festivals to reveal their 2017 lineups. Here in New York there’s quite a few festivals starting to emerge, but there’s only one that we have relied on year in and year out: Governors Ball.

They’ve announced this year’s edition of the festival (at Randall’s Island as usual), and it’s as varied and eclectic of a mix as ever. Headlining the festival is Tool, Chance The Rapper, Phoenix, and Childish Gambino. Then you got Lorde, Flume, Wu-Tang Clan, Wiz Khalifa, Logic, Cafe The Elephant, and Mark Ronson vs Kevin Parker. From there, highlights include Beach House, Schoolboy Q, Air, The Avalanches, Franz Ferdinand, Phantogram, The Head and the Heart, Banks, Local Natives, Mac DeMarco, Parquet Courts, Royal Blood, Charles Bradley & His Extraordinaires, Danny Brown, Michael Kiwanuka, Warpaint, Car Seat Headrest, The Range, The Orwells, Ron Gallo, and even former BBC radio host Zane Lowe.

We’ve been covering Governors Ball every year since the second edition, and are excited to hopefully return this year to see what new memories this years edition of the festival brings. Tickets for the festival go on sale this Friday at noon, with early bird pricing starting at $275.

See you at Randall’s Island this summer!

Preview: Kurt Vile at Terminal 5

By Will Oliver, December 22nd 2016

Next week Kurt Vile returns to New York for a performance at Terminal 5, his largest headlining show here yet. The show will not only wind things down for 2016 (it will be my final concert of the year) but also one of the final stops in support of his sold 2015 album B’lieve I’m Goin Down… (released via Matador Records).

Tickets for the show are still on sale, and it also features an opening set for the always solid Woods, as well as Nathan Bowles. Not a bad show to close out the year with, that’s for sure.

Preview: Twin Peaks at Webster Hall

By Will Oliver, December 6th 2016

(Twin Peaks at Bowery Ballroom)

Twin Peaks surprised me with their mature new album Down In Heaven which came earlier in the year via Grand Jury Music. It’s a very grown up next step for the band who took their sound into a new direction that makes me even more hopeful about their potential future than I already was.

They gave a wild performance at Bowery Ballroom earlier in the year near the albums release, and they’re back this Friday for their largest headlining show here yet at Webster Hall. together PANGEA and Golden Daze are opening things up.

Tickets for the show are currently still on sale, but I wouldn’t wait too long on them.

Preview: Mitski In NYC This Week

By Will Oliver, November 19th 2016

mitski

With the release of her fantastic new record Puberty 2, singer-songwriter Mitski has had quite a year. She’s played New York a few times already (including a sold out show at Bowery Ballroom) and will return early this week for a pair of sold out shows.

On Monday she plays her largest New York show to date at Webster Hall along with Fear of Men and Weaves, and on Tuesday she plays the smaller Villain (which was moved from Market Hotel) along with Nick Hakim and Mal Devisa. Both shows are sold out, but keep an eye for last minute tickets drops, or even try your luck early at doors.
