Yo La Tengo released new album There’s A Riot Going On earlier this year via Matador Records and brought the tour to Brooklyn on April 6 for a sold out performance at Brooklyn Steel. This was an evening with set with no openers, allowing the trio the time to play not one, but two sets as well as an encore.

Our photographer Qbertplaya was there to capture all the action from both sets, find her photos posted in the gallery below, along with the setlist.

Superorgansim’s ascent has been one of the most astonishing stories of the past year. Forming just last year, the group has since released their colorfully fun self-titled debut via Domino Records this March and played their debut show at House Of Yes late last year. They one-upped that performance with a sold-out show at Music Hall of Williamsburg on April 5. This was indeed a sold out show, as I was barely able to move around the venue, even at the very back of the room or upstairs. People are really flocking to this band its clear why, they’re so joyous it’s impossible not to leave their show without a smile on your face.

Vertite, the project of independent New York musician Kelsey Regina Byrne has found a great deal of success, all without the help of a record label. After various EPs and singles, he released her debut album Somewhere in Between last year and stopped into Irving Plaza on April 4 for the first of two sets at Irving Plaza opening for EDEN.

Our photographer Ken Grand-Pierre was there to capture shots from her performance, all of which you can find posted in the gallery below.

Without a doubt one of my most listened to new records of 2018 is Caroline Rose’s infectious LONER, released this March via New West Records. The track may have been released in the Spring, but this gem is made for summer listening with the windows down as you scorch down a highway, or at a cookout in your best friends backyard with a cold one in tow.

On April 3 she brought her tour to Brooklyn for a sold out performance at Rough Trade NYC which featured an opening performance from Henry Jamison.

It’s still early but you’ll be hard-pressed to find many albums this year better than Amen Dunes’ new album Freedom, released on March 30 via Sacred Bones. A day after its release on March 31, he celebrated it with a sold out performance at Music Hall of Williamsburg.

It has been three years since I had last seen Dunes perform and this was very much a fresh start for the New York indie musician. He was sporting a new-look live lineup that included the hard-working guitarist Steve Marion (aka as Delicate Steve), who also contributed to the recording of the new album.

The Lone Bellow at Town Hall (March 30th, 2018)

Near the end of their sold-out show at New York City’s Town Hall, Zach Williams of The Lone Bellow said this to the crowd. “I don’t care who knows it; New York will always be our home.” This heartfelt moment of sincerity was immediately cut into by fellow band member Kanene Donehey Pipkin, who segued naturally into a paraphrasing of Buddy the Elf’s quote, “New York’s my home and I don’t CARE who knows!”

That exchange was a microcosm of the band’s wonderful concert on Friday, March 30th. The show did feel like a homecoming of sorts for the group, which has southern roots but got its start in Brooklyn. The audience hung on each note all evening, and the amount of love being sent in both directions was palpable.

Dan Auerbach brought along the spirit of Nashville with him across the country as a part of his Easy Eye Sound Revue Tour. By his side were many of the legendary session musicians who come together to form the Easy Eye Sound Revue band, which helped him record his sophomore solo album Waiting on a Song, released last summer via his own label Easy Eye Sound.

We saw him debut these new songs and his amazing new band last May when he played an tiny show at Music Hall of Williamsburg. He took this performance to the next level almost a year later on March 28, when he brought the tour to Port Chester to headline the legendary Capitol Theatre, one night after playing Brooklyn Steel.

This year New Zealand singer-songwriter Marlon Williams returned with his sophomore album Make Way for Love via Dead Oceans. He brought the album to New York for a performance at Music Hall of Williamsburg on March 27.

Williams’ voice recalls old-school crooners of the 50s/60s giving this classic style a fresh spin that he makes very much his own. Hearing him live it really makes me wonder why he isn’t ten times bigger than he already is but getting to see him at a room like MHOW is certainly quite alright with me. Williams stretched out his setlist with a few covers, included John Lennon’s “Jealous Guy” and Teddy Randazzo’s “Lost Without You.”

Find a full gallery of photos from Williams’ performance posted below along with the setlist.
