If you haven’t caught the spectacle that is a live set from the super talented Hundred Waters, you’ve deprived yourself of one of the finest live talents in the game at the moment. The group blew my mind just a few months ago when they played a dazzling SXSW set. They’ve since released their fantastic new record The Moon Rang Like A Bell and are back in New York next week playing Rough Trade NYC, in between supporting Interpol at sold out Terminal 5 shows.

The Rural Alberta Advantage have been favorites around here as long as this blog has been running. If they’re playing in New York, you can bet that you can find me there.
They’ve just released their latest album, Mended With Gold, and are touring the states. They stop by New York on November 13 and 14 for a two-night run at Bowery Ballroom. Trust me when I say that they’re a must see live, purely to watch the super talented Paul Banwatt bang away behind the kit.
