Wolf Alice at Rough Trade NYC (July 11, 2017)

By Will Oliver, July 18th 2017

British rockers Wolf Alice are making their big return this year with the release of their anticipated sophomore album Visions of a Life, which will be released via Dirty Hit / RCA Records.

The band has acquired quite a following since the release of their thrilling debut My Love Is Cool back in 2015. We last saw them play to a packed crowd at Warsaw, which made their underplay show on July 11 at the tiny Rough Trade NYC that much special. This is a band on the brink of something even bigger than they’ve already experienced, so a show at Rough Trade was not to be taken for granted.

By Will Oliver, July 18th 2017

The Full Moon Festival was back again this year for it’s seventh edition and it once again took place on Governors Island, but moved from the beach to the Play Lawn, giving the festival a more spacious area in the fields.

Our photographer Leah Runyon was there to capture the action from both artists like Tops, Connan Mockasin, Vic Mensa and Kelela, as well as the well dressed crowd. Find some of her shots posted below.

2Beeps is the project of Brooklyn producer Matt Verzola. This year he returned with a brand new EP titled Little Lights that he self-released via his own 2Beeps Records.

It doesn’t take long for single “Something Special” to live up to it’s name, creating a dreamy swirling world of electronic delight that will let your mind float away from all your worries for the duration of its crisp 3-minute runtime.

(Sandy) Alex G at Bowery Ballroom (July 7, 2017)

By Will Oliver, July 16th 2017

(Sandy) Alex G always seems to find new ways to impress me with the steady evolution of his songwriting, which was already turning heads even from his early days on bandcamp. With his latest album Rocket (released via Domino Records), Alex G has found yet a new way to share his talents, with a bit of a alt-country influence sprinkled in.

This month he returned to New York for a two-night run of MHOW/Bowery Ballroom. We caught the Bowery performance on July 7, which featured opening sets from Cende and Japanese Breakfast.

London musician Kelly Lee Owens released her self-produced / self-titled debut album in March via Smalltown Supersound.

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.

Delicate Steve at Brooklyn Bowl (July 6, 2017)

Delicate Steve has been everywhere this year and we aren’t complaining one bit. We caught his solo show earlier in the year around the time his wonderful new album This Is Steve was released via Anti Records and were ecstatic when we found he he was coming back for another headlining gig at Brooklyn Bowl on July 6.

This year alone we have seen him at his solo gig back in February, sitting in with The Growlers at T5, and most recently, with Yeasayer at Prospect Park – and we have a feeling it won’t be the last. This show at Brooklyn Bowl though felt like one big party with good vibes at an all time high. From both of the openers to Steve, most of the members in every band that played were all from Brooklyn which made this show an absolute blast.

Smack dab in the middle of Independence Day weekend, Canadian electronic duo Bob Moses played a free show in Central Park that had everyone moving and grooving. Though, Days Gone By came about two years ago (via Domino Records) these guys haven’t slowed down too much (we caught them last year at Terminal 5). It was great to see them back on the most gorgeous of summer nights.

They ripped through a majority of Days Gone By but the highlight of the evening was “Far From The Tree.” Hopefully it’s not too much longer till some new sounds hit our ears.

Check out the gallery from the evening below, all taken by Dana Pacifico.

U2 at MetLife Stadium (June 28, 2017)

By Will Oliver, July 10th 2017

There’s not much that I can say about The Joshua Tree that hasn’t already been said before. And anything that has been said is certainly better put than I ever could. U2’s classic album is now 30 years old if you can believe it. Which is more than enough cause for the band to celebrate the album’s immortality with a giant tour across not only the country, but the world.

On June 28 U2 kicked off the first night of a two-night run of The Joshua Tree tour at MetLife Stadium, bringing the whole tri-state together to celebrate the classic album, and the band that created it. The shows are presented in an unforgettable fashion, with a giant super HD screen that spanned the entirety of the MetLife Stadium endzone (200 feet to be exact – the largest and highest-resolution ever used on a concert tour) of super HD visuals directed by Anton Corbijn.
