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 Mattson2.com.  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.

Preview: Governors Balls 2017

By Will Oliver, May 26th 2017

Believe it or not, the Governors Ball Music Festival is just around the corner, as in, one week away. While we are terribly excited and eager to get back onto the familiar stomping grounds of Randall’s Island, there also comes some preparation about who to see, especially with the set times for the festival shared.

Sure there are some real tough conflicts (Phoenix vs. Childish Gambino being the most brutal of them) but on the whole, I have most of my schedule made up and am ready to stick to it. That’s not to say that things can’t change, as that’s part of the fun of a festival, but for the most part I got a plan ready to go.

You don’t need me to tell you which headliner to see, as I’m sure your mind has been long made up since you hit “purchase tickets.” But the beauty of a music festival is the insane number of acts conveniently placed in one location. A lot of the best acts you’ll see may be the ones who you never heard of playing early in the day. Don’t be lazy and get there after a hard morning of pre-gaming. Instead, make the trip in early to catch some of these artists playing when the sun is still out and about.

I wanted to do my preview a little differently this year and take the time to highlight some artists playing earlier in the day that I think are worth the early trip in. Find the list posted below, along with a song from each artists embedded right after.

Governors Ball 2017 Announces Set Times

By Will Oliver, May 18th 2017 — with 1 comment

With Governors Ball just a mere two weeks away, the festival has finally revealed the set times for this year’s edition of the festival. With so many artists that you want to see playing at the same place, there’s naturally going to be some rather unfortunate conflicts.

Here are some conflicts (at least in my mind) that will force some people to make some tough choices:
