Two Shows and Two Hundred Miles with Frightened Rabbit [REVIEW]

Last modified May 25, 2018 at 7:46 pm

The first time I listened to Frightened Rabbit was a sunny spring day in 2008, and I didn’t know what the hell I was listening to. I was in your typical “find related artists” black hole – this one started with Maximo Park and ended with “The Modern Leper.” Upon first impression, The Midnight Organ […]

Who is Jacob Banks, you might be asking yourself. Pay attention to this Nigerian-born-UK-raised artist because his Brit-Soul trajectory is skyward.

Report: Bowery Presents is Acquired by Concert Behemoth AEG Live

Posted April 21, 2016 at 5:12 am

Everything on the Lower East Side is getting sold out. This next one cuts deep, and is a blow to what’s left of the neighborhood music scene.

Courtney Barnett To Play Webster Hall This October

Posted September 12, 2014 at 6:05 am

What can we say about Courtney Barnett? Well, she’s pretty much the coolest of the cool. The Aussie singer/songwriter has ruled twenty-fourteen with her latest effort, The Double EP: A Sea of Split Peas, and we continue to obsess over “Avant Gardner.” “History Eraser” is equally badass. Oh yeah, and this week, her cover of […]

SKATERS Release New Single; Debut Album ‘Manhattan’ Out February 25

Posted January 10, 2014 at 11:12 am

With their debut album Manhattan not far off, SKATERS continue to case the music front. They’ve just released a new single called “Deadbolt” to get the chatter going. It’s three minutes of sharpened harmonious noise, fused together with sliding vocals of persuasion, and touts a “there’s more where that came from” attitude. Their live show was pretty turbulent, […]
