Preview: Alex Lahey at Music Hall of Williamsburg

By Will Oliver, November 14th 2017

It doesn’t take long for Australian musician Alex Lahey to win you over on her debut album I Love You Like a Brother (released via Dead Oceans). The album opens with “Every Day’s The Weekend,” arguably its best track (and one of my most listened to this year). It’s a good example of what new listeners can expect from Lahey. A big infectious indie rock melody and some clever lyrics and a delivery that is undeniable catchy and infectious.

She will bring her joyful sound to Brooklyn on Thursday for a performance at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Support will come from both Dude York and Nervous Dater. Tickets for the show are still available and can be purchased here.

It’s going to be a fun time, I hope to see you there.

Preview: Torres at Music Hall of Williamsburg

By Will Oliver, October 20th 2017

Mackenzie Scott, better known as Torres, returned last month with her new album Three Futures, her first for 4AD. It’s another step forward for the talented Brooklyn artist who takes her sound to yet another new and impressive direction.

She’ll bring the album to life for a hometown performance at Music Hall of Williamsburg on October 27. The show will also feature an opening performance from The Dove & the Wolf.

Tickets for the show are still on sale for now, but don’t wait on it too long, it will sell out sooner than later. We will have coverage from the show on the way, be sure to return to see our photos and thoughts.

Preview: The Growlers at Brooklyn Bowl

By Will Oliver, September 26th 2017

Beach goth rockers The Growlers are no strangers to New York. It seems like every couple of months we can expect them to return to us here on the other coast (find coverage of their Terminal 5 performance this May).

They’re still touring hard in support of their 2106 album City Club (released via Cult Records) and will once again return to us for a trio of shows at Brooklyn Bowl this week on September 27, 28 and 29.

Not only do the band deliver a non-stop energetic rock performance, but they always dive deep into their catalog to offer a dynamic and lengthy setlist that never disappoints.

Tickets for the shows are currently still available here, but don’t wait to long on them, they won’t last much longer now.

Preview: Kevin Morby at Music Hall of Williamsburg

By Will Oliver, August 31st 2017

Kevin Morby has kept his consistent winning streak going strong with his new album City Music (released via Dead Oceans), which is one of my favorite albums of 2017 so far.

We saw him just a few months ago when he stopped in for a performance at Bowery Ballroom for the first leg of his tour in support of the album. He returns to us next week, this time headed to Brooklyn for a performance at Music Hall Of Williamsburg.

Along with Morby, the show will feature an opening performance from Feels guitarist Shannon Lay, who is the first signee and release on Morby’s own record label, Mare Records (an imprint of Woodsist).

Tickets for the show are currently still available to purchase, but don’t wait too long as it’s likely to sell out closer to the show.

Preview: The Mattson 2 at Le Poisson Rouge

By Anthony Bauer, August 23rd 2017

Fresh off their release of Star Stuff collaboration record with Chaz Bundick (aka Toro Y Moi), and even more recently their power tour trio with Chaz that we caught back in April, The Mattson 2 are back and have lined up a small run of East coast dates.

The identical twin guitar and drums duo rooted in jazz laced with elements of psych rock will be at Songbyrd in Washington, DC tonight; the beautiful House Industries Showroom in Yorklyn, Delaware on August 24th; and finally right back here in New York City at Le Poisson Rouge this Friday, August 25th.  Their tour doesn’t stop there though, as they head from NYC right to upstate New York the following day for the Huichica East Festival where they will support Real Estate as well as Charles Bradley.

For ticket info and more details, check out Mattson2.com.  Be sure to also check back with the blog as we will have photos from the LPR show coming soon!

The Nude Party have slowly but steadily built a solid local following her in New York and have made Brooklyn venue Baby’s All Right their second home of sorts.

This month they have a mini residency at the venue, featuring three nights with very special guests and friends playing alongside them. The first show already went down earlier this week, but night 2 will go down on August 24 with Boytoy, Stuyedeyed and Jonathan Toubin opening the show and night 3 on August 31, with Max Pain And The Groovies and Ghostfunk Orchestra opening things up.

Tickets for both shows are just $5 and are still on sale for now. Both should be a good old time at Baby’s.

The Emerging Music Festival returns to Bryant Park for it’s third year, expanding to a two-day format this Friday and Saturday, bringing double the dose of music and new emerging talent.

Friday night will feature performance from 79.5, Luke Elliot, Mail The Horse and Landlady, while Saturday features Breanna Barbara, RIPS, Cassandra Jenkins, Maybird, Super Yamba Band and Space Captain. It’s an exciting and eclectic line-up of new talent to keep an eye out for. The fact that it’s a free show for two days, is the cherry on top.
