You know when Diarrhea Planet come rolling into town, you best find a ticket. The Nashville rockers always deliver some of the craziest live shows that you’ll find anywhere (right alongside Ty, Thee Oh Sees and King Gizzard).

They just released their brand new album Turn To Gold via Infinity Cat Recordings/Dine Alone Records, and played a big time late night TV performance on Seth Myers. After taping that, they went over to Brooklyn Bowl for a night of sweat, rock and roll, and destruction.

1_We Are Scientists_Irving Plaza

On May 11 hometown boys We Are Scientists played a special show at Irving Plaza that served two purposes. Firstly, it was in support of their newly released album Helter Seltzer (via 100% Records). Secondly, it served to celebrate the ten year anniversary of their breakthrough record With Love and Squalor. To celebrate this, the first set from the band (Keith Murray and Chris Cain) featured the groups previous drummer Michael Tapper to resume his old duties on the songs that he helped create.

Getting to see the old trio back together again, delivering all these crowd-pleasing rockers took me back to 2006, when I saw We Are Scientists open up for Arctic Monkeys at Roseland Ballroom, one of my earliest concert memories. Some songs such as “Worth The Wait” and “What’s The Word” haven’t been played in many years (since 2007 and 2006, respectfully). They nailed each and every song, proving that sometimes it’s perfectly fine to revel in nostalgia.

1_Peter Bjorn and John_Baby's All Right

It’s hard to believe that it’s been a full five years since the last album (Gimme Some) from Swedish rockers Peter Bjorn and John. Which also means that it’s been quite a while since they last toured their live show in the United States.

This May they returned stateside for a mini tour that including two intimate Brooklyn shows at Rough Trade NYC and Baby’s All Right (on May 2 & 3 respectively). I made it out to the show at Baby’s All Right, which also happened to be the first time I’d ever catch PB&J live, as surprisingly as that is.

SakkieFTW is a Vancouver-based producer who has recently released a new EP entitled Experiment 1.3.2. On the EP he merges elements of house and club with ease on tracks such as “Spiral,” a song off the EP which is elevated thansk to the vocals of Kaeli McArter. It has a booming crunch to it that works well with the interplay of McArter’s strong vocals.

Tomorrow rising Chicago indie rockers Whitney (featuring Max Kakacek formerly of Smith Westerns and Julien Ehrlich formerly of Unknown Mortal Orchestra) release their debut album Light Upon The Lake via Secretly Canadian. It’s already one of my favorite albums of the year so far, and it won’t be long until everyone else is captured by their lush summer sounds.

To celebrate the albums release, the group is in town for a trio of shows, both big and small. They’ll play an early afternoon set at Governors Ball on Sunday, but before that they’ll do some intimate performances in Brooklyn, playing Baby’s All Right tomorrow night, and Market Hotel on Saturday.

Unfortunately both shows are sold out, but there may be a select amount of tickets available at doors day of show. It’s a matter of time until they play bigger shows at venues like Bowery, MHOW and maybe even Webster Hall, so these are definitely the shows to see.

Gov Ball 2016

Ready or not, Governors Ball is tomorrow. I don’t know when 2016 decided to throw the summer at us, but it’s happening whether we like it or not. Unfortunately the weather may bring us a weekend of rain, but even so, there’s enough great talent at the festival to make us excited to battle the elements. This year, I decided to do a little breakdown of who to see each day, in case you’re not sure on who to see, or a little torn on a conflict or two (although there’s not too many this year, at least for me). Find the list posted below, and be sure to return next week for our coverage.
