Preview: Julia Jacklin at Rough Trade NYC

By Will Oliver, November 10th 2017

Hailing from Sydney, Australia, Julia Jacklin is an impressive rising talent in the folk rock indie scene. Think of her as a mix between Angel Olsen and Molly Burch, with a classic folk/alt-country sound that also feels fresh and special.

She first caught attention last year with the release of her debut album Don’t Let The Kids Win, which she released via Transgressive Records. She has since signed with Polyvinyl Records, who released her impressive new 7″ single Eastwick/Cold Caller back in September.

Jacklin will return to us with a performance at Rough Trade NYC this upcoming Monday, 11/13. Less than 50 tickets for the show reportedly remain, so if you’re waiting to buy tickets or don’t have them yet, you best get a move on.

Minneapolis, Minnesota singer and hip hop artist Lizzo is known for her lively and energetic live performances, one we caught for the first time years ago when she opened for Sleater-Kinney at Terminal 5.

Since then she’s become quite well known for her great live performances and will return to us in New York at the end of the month on November 30 for a free show. It will take place at The Cutting Room and is put on by Pandora. Fans are able to RSVP now for free admission to what is sure to be a great performance. You can find the link to RSVP right here.

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.

If you’re even remotely paying attention to the live music scene in NYC, you’ve probably crossed paths with the wild chaotic live show of Fat White Family. Love them or hate them, their live show leaves a lasting impression.

Rolling Stone’s Sacha Lecca is one of the best in the game and has spent plenty of time with Fat White Family, capturing them live in action and behind the scenes. He’s teamed up with Alec Castillo (of The Nude Party, who toured with Fat White Family) for a split release zine, capturing the up-close and personal moments with the members of Fat White Family, as well as some friends of the band such as Lady Gaga, Sean Lennon and legendary rock superfans, Dennis & Lois.

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  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.

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.
