Preview: Kelly Lee Owens Tonight at the Good Room

By Will Oliver, July 12th 2017

London musician Kelly Lee Owens released her self-produced / self-titled debut album in March via Smalltown Supersound.

She’s currently in town for her first U.S. tour, bringing her show to Brooklyn tonight for a headlining gig at Good Room where she will bring her dream pop sounds to life.

It’s your first chance to see the rising talent here and you can still grab some tickets for the show right here, or grab them at the door. It should be a good one.

Preview: Boston Calling 2017

By Will Oliver, May 25th 2017

The 2017 edition of Boston Calling kicks off tomorrow and it looks to be the biggest version yet, both figuratively and quite literally. This is the eight edition of the festival, and now the festival has moved to the much bigger Harvard Athletic Complex, which allowed them to double the amount of acts they were able to host, in addition to making the festival much larger on many different levels.

The diverse lineup will feature headlining sets from the likes of Chance The Rapper, Tool. Bon Iver, Sigur Ros, The XX, Major Lazer, Weezer and more. With so many stages, Boston Calling vets will finally have the unfamiliar problem of conflicts, which wasn’t an issue with the previous two-stage set-up at City Hall. But hey, with more great artists come more tough choices.

If you’re in the area or still debating whether to go, there are still three-day tickets available as well as single day passes. Head here for more information on tickets.

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!
