Preview: Buffalo Tom at Music Hall of Williamsburg

By Will Oliver, March 16th 2018


Longstanding Boston indie rockers Buffalo Tom are back at it with new album Quiet And Peace (via Schoolkids Records), their first album in seven years. The album features a pretty cover of “Simon & Garfunkel’s classic “The Only Living Boy in New York.”

Tomorrow night they return to New York for a headlining performance at Music Hall of Williamsburg in support of the new record. Opening up the show will be locals Valley Lodge.

Tickets for the show are still available and can be purchased here. You can also find the video for their cover of “The Only Living Boy in New York” posted below.

Preview: Kelly Lee Owens at Elsewhere

By Will Oliver, March 14th 2018

London producer and singer Kelly Lee Owens released her great self-titled debut album last year via Smalltown Supersound. She came to New York in support of the record last year but we sadly missed that performance.

If you too missed her last stop, you’ll be happy to know that Owens will be back in New York this Friday for a performance at Elsewhere in Brooklyn. Support comes from both Ela Minus and Carmen Villain.

Tickets for the show are still currently on sale but don’t wait too long on scooping them up. We’ll have coverage of the show coming very soon as well.

Preview: Colin Macleod at Rockwood Music Hall

By Will Oliver, March 12th 2018

Colin Macleod is a Scottish singer-songwriter from a remote place known as Isle of Lewis. MacLeod used to release music under the moniker The Boy Who Trapped The Sun or the abbrivated C. MacLeod, but now he goes by his full name which he will release his new album Bloodlines under this May.

Two of the songs that he’s release so far “Kicks In” and “Shake The Wall,” show a confident songwriter who is sure of his abilities with some real songwriting talent and one hell of a voice. There’s always a wealth of great powerful musicians that seem to find their way over from Scottland and Macleod seems to be another voice that deserves to be heard in a big, big way.

He is currently in Austin for a bunch of SXSW performances and will then come here to New York on March 20 for a free performance at Rockwood Music Hall (Stage 1).

You can learn a lot about Macleod as both a person an artist from this wonderful video that I have included below, along with the official music video for “Shake The Wall,” along with the flyer for all of his SXSW dates.

Alex Cameron and Molly Burch offer new exciting takes on old sounds and although at first glance they probably wouldn’t be the most obvious pick for touring partners, it’s definitely an eclectic and interesting pairing that brings both an enthusiastic indie pop-rock singer with Cameron, and a retro-sounding singer-songwriter with Burch.

The two will come to Brooklyn soon for a pair of shows at Music Hall of Williamsburg. The first show is this weekend and is already sold out but there are still some tickets up for grabs for their performance on Monday, March 12 – which we will have coverage of.

It’s going to be a great night of music, featuring two budding talents that we will be seeing plenty of great things from in the future.

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.

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.
