Tickets for the show are still on sale, but we got a pair of tickets to offer to one lucky winner. To enter the contest for a chance to win the pair, leave a comment below with your favorite Fat White Family song.

I’ll contact a winner early tomorrow with instructions on how to get your tickets. Good luck!

Preview: STS9 at Best Buy Theater

This Friday STS9 are making their return to the Best Buy Theater with a show that is sure to have everyone moving.

Marking their first show back in NYC since disbanding with founding member and bassist David Murphy. Murphy was an fundamental component of STS9. However, as a fan, I’m not worried about what they can do musically and in the live setting without him there. No matter what, it will be a captivating experience.

STS9 have headlined some of the biggest festivals, so being able to catch them at the Best Buy Theater is going to be surreal. Make sure you grab tickets before its too late.

[music video]: Adult Jazz – Am Gone

By Will Oliver, October 15th 2014 Music Video Video

Adult Jazz

If you’re not familiar with Adult Jazz’s terrific debut album Gist Is, you’ve slept on one of the best albums of the year.

One of the first songs that was shared from the album was the multi-layered and colorful offering “Am Gone.” It’s just gotten an official music video, directed in black and white by director Samuel Travis, and starring Suren Seneviratne who is walking around outside trapped in the confines of gallows.

The video features a powerful artistic vision, fitting for a band that is really pushing the boundaries of music to exciting levels.

Check out the video below, as well as the bands CMJ show dates next week, which will mark their U.S. live debut.

1_Stars_Modern Sky

Yesterday Montreal’s longstanding group Stars returned with their new album No One Is Lost which was released via ATO Records.

They stopped by Central Park for the Modern Sky Festival twp weekends ago to perform some new cuts from the album (such as the delightful “From The Night”) as well as old favorites (such as “Elevator Love Letter”). It was my first time seeing them live, and I gotta say, they had me impressed.

Duel vocalists Amy Millan and Torquil Campbell have a great chemistry together, feeding off each other and sharing their enthusiasm to the receptive crowd that was on hand. The rest of the band delivered a tight set behind them, taking us from the sunset to the cool night in style.

Find the setlist posted below, along with a photo gallery of their set.

1_The Both_Modern Sky

Combine the talents of Aimee Mann and Ted Leo and you have the wonderful duo known as The Both. They were a perfect transition from the Chinese bands that played during the first half of day, into the somewhat low-key 2nd half that also featured sets from Stars and Cat Power.

Ted Leo bravely introduced the band in Chinese (which he wrote down) which humored the large Chinese audience that stuck around. This was an encouraging start to what was a totally delightful set that was mellow enough to nurse my hangover until I finally recovered. The highlight came during “Hummingbird” a wonderful track of their self-titled album which they released earlier in the year. If it wasn’t on your radar, here’s an endorsement to go out and find it.

1_Second Hand Rose_Modern Sky

Chinese rock act Second Hand Rose were the surprise of the Modern Sky Festival, and easily my favorite Chinese act to grace the festival’s stage by far. They were totally bombastic and theatrical, with bright vibrant outfits that translated well with their enthusiastic performance.

Their sound mixed Chinese music with modern rock, a bridge that was showcased with their fun cover of Michael Jackson’s “Smooth Criminal,” done completely in Chinese. These guys were having a shit ton of fun on stage, and this energy was shared within the crowd.

I wouldn’t hesitate to see these guys live again, they were fantastic.

1_Shuh Tou_Modern Sky

Rock group Shuh Tou are a quintet out of China who brought the rock to their midday set at Modern Sky two weekends ago. They added a few metal-influenced punches that were a nice surprise, considering the lighter tone that the rest of the day’s lineup would bring.

Find some photos from their performance below.

1_Queen Sea Big Shark_Modern Sky

Queen Sea Big Shark are an indie-rock group out of Beijing. I had a slow start to my day, but got to the fest in time to catch the end of their set.

From what I saw, the group put on a high energy display that paired nicely with their enjoyable set of rock sounds that were easy to hop onboard with.

1_Liars_Modern Sky

Last weekend Liars played Modern Sky Festival, performing one of the final sets of the first night of the festival. Over the summer I saw them play the intimate LPR, which was a great performance all around. While I do feel like these guys are better suited for intimate shows indoors, they still played a captivating set and made it work.

1_Lykke Li_Radio City

Last weekend Lykke Li played at the history Radio City Music Hall, her largest New York City show to date. The show came in support of her latest album I Never Learn, which she released earlier in the year.

Believe it or not, it was my first time catching the Swedish star live. I missed out on seeing her live during her early days due to being away at school (really regret this now), but I’m just glad to have finally caught her. Although her star power has increased significantly over time, Li still seems to take a similar humble approach, even if her songs are often larger than life. Take “Dance, Dance Dance” or “I Follow Rivers,” or her lovely take on Bruce Springsteen’s “I’m On Fire.” She still asks for the crowd to help her sing along, and pushed us to stand up from our somewhat awkward position the the fuzzy red velvet seats to dance along.

Personally, I think Li would still be better suited for those medium plus venues, but oddly enough there aren’t many of those in the city. Her sound carried quite well in the large space, certainly making the most of the opportunity. She still seems like the same girl who I was introduced to through fellow music blogs when I was just starting with this one right here, which is encouraging to see.

The world can certainly use more pop stars like Lykke Li.
