Preview: The Mattson 2 at Baby’s All Right

By Anthony Bauer, November 13th 2017

The Mattson 2 have been out on the road all year in support of their fantastic collaborative release Star Stuff with Chaz Bear (aka Toro y Moi) and haven’t shown signs of slowing down.  We were there this past August when the identical twin duo rolled through NYC to play a stellar set at LPR and are very excited they’ll be back later this month for not one, but two shows at Baby’s All Right!

The first set kicks off at 6pm with special opening set by James Tillman then a set from The Mattson 2, and the late set at kicks off at 9:30 with the premiere of the Mattson 2’s cover of Jon Coltrane’s A Love Supreme + a set of classic Mattson 2 originals.  Tickets are still available for both the early set and late set, so grab yours now before its too late!

PS – can’t make it to Baby’s All Right?  Don’t fret – the Mattson’s will be embarking on a small run of other East Coast dates this November kicking things off in Woodstock, NY at Colony on November 19th; The Mill Space in Wilmington, Delaware on November 21st; and then at Black Cat on November 22nd in Washington DC.

Preview: Bedouine at Joe’s Pub

By Will Oliver, November 13th 2017

Bedouine is the project of Syrian-born (and now L.A. based) singer Azniv Korkejia who caught my attention earlier this year with her absolutely gorgeous debut self-titled album that was released via Spacebomb. The record is a dreamy folk delight that captures your imagination and clears the mind. It hasn’t quite gotten the attention from the rest of the “indie scene” that it no doubt deserves, but I’m sure that is soon to change in due time.

She’s currently on her first headlining tour and will make her New York debut this Thursday at Joe’s Pub. This will be your first chance to catch her performing live and it’s not one to be missed. Only a few tickets still remain so don’t wait too long if you want to attend.

Cass McCombs

When you think of Cass McCombs, the word consistent springs to mind. His record output is as steadily of quality, if not somewhat underappreciated throughout the years.

He recently rounded up a bunch of limited singles, b-sides and rarities in a anthology collection titled A Folk Set Apart: Rarities, B-Sides & Space Junk, Etc, that Domino released in December

This Thursday night he’ll stop by Bowery Ballroom for a show celebrating the records release. Fans can be sure to hear a fair share of these songs, as well as other familiar favorites from McCombs discography. He always brings it live, demonstrating a different power in the live setting that is quite frankly, unshakeable.

Tickets for the Bowery show are still on sale. It’s sure to be one of the best shows that you can start the new year with. Soldiers Of Fortune will open the show.

Barbez
Welcome to 2016. Need a last minute plan to kick off your show-going habit for the new year?

We got one for you. Tonight Brooklyn-based ensemble Barbez will be playing at Joe’s Pub, performing new pieces from their new album White Phosphorous, a new album that ruminates on the wars at uprisings in the Middle East post-9/11.

Tickets for the show are still on sale ahead of the show tonight, and some will still be available at the door. Grab a taste of their 2013 track “Bella Ciao” with it’s video, which is posted below.

Preview: Shopping at Palisades This Saturday Night

By Will Oliver, November 18th 2015

Shopping

One of the many highlights of CMJ this October was British trio Shopping. The group effortlessly run through songs that dabble in dance-rock with a punk-minded spirit that is just irresistible in every which way. I ended up catching them two times over the busy marathon week, and honestly wish I could’ve caught them some more. They played tracks from their recently released album Why Choose, out now via Fat Cat Records, as well as their equally great debut album Consumer Complaints.

They’ll be back again this Saturday night for a show at Palisades in Brooklyn, where they will play alongside headliners Priests as well as fellow opener, Arm Candy. Tickets ($12) for the show are still on sale, and it’s bound to be one of the most exciting shows you attend on Saturday, if not all weekend.

Preview: Fuzz at Bowery Ballroom This Sunday

By Will Oliver, November 10th 2015

Fuzz

Fuzz, the trio of Ty Segall (on drums and vocals), Charlie Moothart and Roland Cosio released their new self-titled album (their 2nd) late last month via In The Red Records. This Sunday night they’re going to bring their garage rock fury to Manhattan, for a sold out show at Bowery Ballroom, along with The Men and Walter, who will open the show.

This will be the first stop of their tour in New York City, and my first time seeing them since their performance at Mercury Lounge in October 2013. This time around the room is much larger, and one can expect plenty of movement with the crowd, and plenty of crowd-surfers and stage-divers to keep you on your toes.

If you can find away into this sold out show, it’s going to be one of the best rock shows you’ll see all month, if not year.

Preview: Shakey Graves at Terminal 5 This Wednesday

By Will Oliver, November 9th 2015

1_Shakey-Graves_Newport-Folk-Festival-2015

This Wednesday night, Austin rocker Alejandro Rose-Garcia, better known to us in the music world as Shakey Graves, will return to New York for a performance at Terminal 5. The large venue would seem like a task to most artists, but based on the impressive performance I saw from him earlier this year at the Newport Folk Festival (which is where the photo above is taken from), he has no problem making a large scale performance seem intimate and personal.

Even if you’re unfamiliar with his music, he’s the sort of performer that you should take a risk on. He won me over with his live performance alone, and I’ve become a fan ever since. If you’re willing to give him a try, the same may happen to you.

Tickets for the show are still on sale, and feature opening sets from The Oh Hellos and Those Darlins

Moon King

On Thursday night both Moon King and Youth Lagoon will head to Manhattan for a performance at Webster Hall.

Moon King, the Canadian duo of Daniel Woodhead and Maddie Wilde are still hard at work touring in support of their fantastic debut album Secret Life, which they released earlier this year via Last Gang Records. I caught them thing spring at Baby’s All Right, while Bauer caught them at Bowery Ballroom this summer when they opened for Mr Twin Sister.

This show will be the biggest stage that I’ve seen them perform on yet, and it should be a wonderful paring with the equally amazing Youth Lagoon, who is supporting his great new album Savage Hills Ballroom.

Some tickets are still for sale for the show, but I wouldn’t sleep on them too long.
