Chicago’s Maps & Atlases are back with new album Lightlessness Is Nothing New which was released on June 1 via Barsuk Records.

They’ll bring their tour in support of the new record to New York for a performance at Music Hall of Williamsburg on June 20. There are still some tickets available for sale but we have a pair to give away to one lucky winner.

To enter the contest, all you have to do is send me an email to weallwantsomeone[at]gmail[dot]com with Maps and Atlases in the subject and list the name you’d want guestlisted in the body. I’ll pick a winner and notify them closer to the show date.

Good luck!

Dropkick Murphys and Flogging Molly are celebrating 20 years of rock and roll chaos with a co-headlining tour properly given a tagline of “Together Celebrating Over 20 Years Of Mayhem.” They’ll bring this rowdy summer tour to us in Queens, New York, for a big-time performance at Forest Hills Stadium on Friday, June 22.

In addition to Dropkick Murphys and Flogging Molly, the show will feature an opening performance from Jake Burns of Stiff Little Fingers. While there are still some tickets available, I would move quickly on these as the show is right around the corner and sure to be one hell of a party.

Elderbrook is a London-based producer and 2018 Grammy Nominee who has recently returned with his very summery new single “Sleepwalking.” The track was written with Empire Of The Sun’s Nick Littlemore and was released via Big Beat Records.

Country artist Maren Morris released her major label debut Hero in 2016 (via Columbia Nashville), receiving several nominations and acclimations for the album and singles like “My Church “and “I Could Use a Love Song.” Her recent collaboration with producer Zedd and musical duo Grey “The Middle” has even brought Morris quite a bit of mainstream pop recognition as well.

Maren Morris’s most recent local shows were opening for former One Direction member Niall Horan in mid-2017, but she had not headlined in the New York area since a Bowery Ballroom show in February of last year. Members of the Hilton Honors program, however, were treated to a special member-exclusive concert featuring Maren Morris at Gotham Hall on March 11th.

On May 4 Lake Street Dive returned with their new album Free Yourself Up via Nonesuch Records. We caught them last year at BRIC Celebrate! Brooklyn and while these days you can usually find them at much bigger rooms like Radio City Music Hall or Beacon Theatre (where they’ll play in November) I had yet to personally see the group play and jumped at the chance to see them at a sold out Brooklyn Steel.

On May 9 Brooklyn’s Mother Feather headlined Knitting Factory along with support coming from local openers Villins.

I hadn’t heard of Villins before they opened for Mother Feather. For the most part, Villins is a due of Jesyka and Jesus. Their chemistry on stage is electric and their songs have a catchy glam pop vibe and hooks. They give all they have on stage, never leaving a dull performance moment. They play the last Monday night of every month at Arlene’s Grocery and are well worth going out of your way for.

Car Seat Headrest returned in February with Twin Fantasy (Face to Face), a complete re-recording and reworking of their 2011 album Twin Fantasy. The album takes what worked so well on Will Toledo’s slightly more lo-fi early versions of these tracks and gives them a fresh reimagining that captures the bands beefed up new live band dynamic.

On May 8 they performed at Market Hotel. what is now a very intimate show for the band that has not one, but two shows lined up at the much larger Brooklyn Steel in September. They were in town for a performance of Twin Fantasy (Face to Face) tracks “Bodys” the next night on Fallon and used this chance to both warm up a bit and reward some passionate fans who helped sell out the show in such an hour or so.

Earlier this year Panda Bear released his new EP A Day With The Homies as a vinyl-only release via Domino Records. He previously played four of the five songs from the EP last year during Desert Daze but with the release of the EP he brought the new songs to more audiences as a part of his most recent tour.

This included a performance in New York on May 5 at Brooklyn Steel, which featured the usual trippy projections and lighting that one would expect from both Panda Bear/Animal Collective. Along with all five of the songs off the new EP, Panda Bear gave us five new songs that were perfectly mixed in along with older favorites such as “Last Night At The Jetty” and “Tropic Of Cancer.”

Find a full photo gallery from his performance posted below, along with the setlist.
