Weekend Music Greetings and Felicitations (11/3 – 11/7)
First, congratulations to the Cubbies on yesterday’s win.
Bill Murray must have earned some good karma visiting us in Greenpoint, because his favorite team won.
Now let’s talk music in North Brooklyn. First, your famous acts.
Roaming around town you can find Girls Against Boys, Faster Pussycat, Girlpool, and The Screaming Females.
Of course, that’s not the only good music in town, tonight (11/3) has two Latin DJ’s spinning, and the rest of the weekend you can find folk-rock, dad rock, rockabilly, and all those no-wave dreamy bands that cater to anyone who hates rock music.
But first, congratulations to Soundcloud, this week they managed to have tracks for about 95% of the bands I thought were worth a listen this weekend, including some not mentioned here. It adds up to an astounding ninety-three tracks that I compiled into this playlist.
Since all your preview tracks are available there, I’m going to stick to basics below.
That means tonight, you can see Girls Against Boys at St. Vitus at 8 PM, folk-rocker Ryley Walker at Villain at 8, Girlpool at Silent Barn at 10 with Yohuna and Jackal Onasis opening, and farther afield, rockabilly and bomb-set vets The Blasters and Delta Bombers at Hill Country Brooklyn at 8:30.
Talk about a tough decision. Oh yeah, the Teen Commandments are also at Rough Trade at 9. And DJ Captain Planet spins traditional salsa and Latin funk at Bembe starting at 10.
The last time I saw Faster Pussycat it was in a strip mall in San Antonio, TX.
The club was right next to a Yarn Barn where a bunch of blue-haired ladies were huddled behind the store’s front door, frightened by the band’s audience gathered outside.
Save up your extra hour of sleep from when Daylight Savings Time ends on Monday morning to catch the crew that night at St. Vitus at 10 PM.
