1_Wolf Alice_Brooklyn Night Bazaar

Last month up-and-coming Brit-rockers Wolf Alice made their New York City live debut with a show at Baby’s All Right. They’ve already returned to the states for SXSW as well as a bunch of tours surrounding it. This brought them back to New York this weekend for a free show at Brooklyn Night Bazaar along with Sunflower Bean (who we also saw at Baby’s last month), Palehound and Lazyeyes.

This past Saturday Jukebox The Ghost made their live return to NYC (we caught them at a empty penthouse during CMJ last year) for a sold-out headlining sold-out show at Irving Plaza. It was palpable how excited the trio were to be playing such a venue in the greatest city. Their energy captivated everyone in attendance, and they made sure to hit home with fans old favorites, as well as new songs off their most recent self-titled album, Jukebox The Ghost (out via Yep Roc Records).

1_The Dodos_MHOW

The San Francisco duo of Meric Long and Logan Kroeber have been keeping things steady over the past decade or so as The Dodos. In that timespan they’ve released an impressive six albums. At no point did I ever worry about the quality of the record, as the duo seem to always find a way to impress. Their most recent album Individ was just released last month via Polyvinyl Records, and it’s unsurprisingly another wonderful addition to their discography. This Friday night they brought their tour to Music Hall of Williamsburg, with their tour mates, Springtime Carnivore.

Last night Museum Of Love, the DFA-related duo of former LCD Soundsystem drummer Pat Mahoney and Dennis McNany, took over Bowery Ballroom for a night of disco-influenced electronic dance-rock. The show came in support of their tour for their self-titled debut album, which they released last year.

Our very own Dana Pacifico was there and got some wonderful photos of their performance. Find all her shots posted below.

Sleater-Kinney at Terminal 5 (February 26, 2015)

2_Sleater-Kinney_Terminal 5

Last night Sleater-Kinney took over Terminal 5 for the first night of a very sold out two-night run in support of their new album No Cities to Love. It was their first live performance in New York since 2006 (at Webster Hall). I never expected that the trio of Corin Tucker, Carrie Brownstein, and Janet Weiss would reunite for a new album, let alone return to play live shows again. This made the night one of those “pinch me,” “is this really happening sort of shows,” with a special feeling lingering throughout the air of the very sold out Terminal 5, and when I say sold out, it was probably one of the most packed crowds that I’ve ever seen at Terminal 5, with no room to spare.

Ariel Pink at Terminal 5 (February 25, 2015)

On Wednesday night Ariel Pink brought his Pom Pom tour to New York for a show at Terminal 5. It seemed like a strange booking when it was announced, as the space seemed a little bit too big and wrong for the weirdo-pop of Pink. As it turns out, my skepticism was right as the show was slightly undersold, with only the main floor available to attendees (balconies were VIP only). I think a show at Webster Hall would have been a better fit.

1_The Twilight Sad_Baby's All Right

On Tuesday night Scottish outfit The Twilight Sad brought their current tour with Brooklyn’s Port St. Willow to Baby’s All Right. Considering The Twilight Sad just played Webster Hall last November with We Were Promised Jetpacks, getting to see them play the more intimate Baby’s All Right was the perfect way to take in their set of awe-inspiring tunes.
