Metronomy have been no strangers to New York stages this year, coming back to us quite a bit. There was their show at Music Hall of Williamsburg in February, and then a return trip in May. The touring for recent album Love Letters is still very much strong, as they stopped by at Brooklyn venue Warsaw on Friday night, just one night after playing Irving Plaza.

Our photographer Jesse Wekerle was at Warsaw on Friday night and helped us capture just what went down. Find all of his photos posted below.

Ty Segall and La Luz at Webster Hall (September 18, 2014)

The last time that I saw both Ty Segall and La Luz, it was at what I still call the best show that I’ve seen all year. It went down at a tiny little guitar shop in the outskirts of Austin, Texas during SXSW. It was unmatched it its raging energy, that is until last night, when I just happened to catch both of them playing together again, this time at a packed out Webster Hall.

Photos by Dana Pacifico

On Friday night Chromeo played to a sold out Central Park crowd in support of their recently released White Women along with Big Freedia, who opened up for them.

As usual, the duo of Dave 1 and P-Thugg brought their funky-fresh dance expertise to the Central Park crowd and dazzled them into the wee hours of the night (well as far as Central Park’s curfew allows). Find photos of them and Big Freedia below, all of which were taken by our very own Dana Pacifico.

Recap: Basilica Soundscape 2014

This weekend I made the drive upstate to Hudson, New York for the 3rd edition of Basilica Soundscape. The festival takes place in Basilica Hudson, the an old train-wheel factory that was converted to a performance space. It’s a small-scale festival limited in scale and attendance, with finely curated booking fit to the bill of readers of Pitchfork, who help put on the fest.

There’s a real calm and relaxed vibe to Basilica that you’d be hard pressed to compare to any other festival, especially in New York. They have good food, good beer (Lagunitas Brewing Company), and don’t oversell tickets, making it one of the more comfortable festival experiences I’ve had. Read the rest of this entry »

Swans at Basilica Soundscape 2014

One by one the members of Swans came out to their drawn out opening number. First it was percussionist Thor Harris who began his work on his gong, then out came drummer Phil Puleo who added his own strikes. The percussion only groove was broken up by lap steel guitar player Christoph Hahn who joined them for a few minutes until the rest of the group, led by Swans head honcho Michael Gira, joined them. This opening number went on for nearly 20-minutes, giving you a clear understanding of what exactly you can expect from a Swans live show.

Deafheaven at Basilica Soundscape 2014

Truthfully, I’m not much of a metal guy. If you frequent this blog, that won’t come as a surprise. But I’ve heard nothing but glowing praise from mostly everyone I could think of about black metal band Deafheaven, even from the sort of people who don’t normally have anything to say about metal at all. Last night I got to see the perform at Basilica Soundscape and see what all the talk was about.
