Last, we clue you in to some shows beyond this weekend that you should ticket up now before a sellout, like for Erykah Badu and Angel Olsen. Continue reading

Weekend Music: This is Why Nothing Gets Done in San Diego

‏@yukonakamura_ph: Beautiful day in greenpoint.

I had a whole theme planned for this week’s concert update.

It had something to do with music in people’s personal vs. professional lives.

But I just took the dog for a walk and it is, simply, Amazing Summer outside right now. All the local employees and freelancers are basking in the sun and socializing.

No sense in me slowing you down with themes. We’ll get right to the concert update instead, and please please please spend some time outside in Greenpoint or Williamsburg today. Continue reading

Weekend Music: Everything Old is New Again (3/3 – 3/6)

Ah, nostalgia

Some songs and memories never leave us.

This weekend there are local opportunities to hear rockabilly, electronica, club, and calypso tunes that have stood the test of time.

Let’s begin tonight (3/3) with longtime road warrior Wayne “The Train” Hancock ringing out his Texas twang at the Knitting Factory.

I’ve been following Mr. Hancock since we were both living in Austin in the mid ’90s. All those gimmicky rockabilly bands floating around Brooklyn lately can’t hold a candle to him. Continue reading

Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival: Preview of Tonight’s Shows (11/5)

The juvenile genius of Dave Letterman’s early top 10 lists is probably starting to fade in everyone’s memories since the advent of his retirement. But remember that Snuggles the Fabric Softener Bear once listed as one of his top 10 concerns that the Pillsbury Doughboy might ask to be poked a little bit lower. And keep your eye out at flea markets for that top-ranked obscure Norman Rockwell painting entitled, “Turn Your Head and Cough.”

Letterman, well-known by the Connecticut State Police for his lead foot, dreamed in one of his lists of replacing the speedometer in cars with an encouraging voice that just says, “Punch it! Punch it!”

Listen, I know that Electronic Dance Music is a recent favorite target in New York, just like apparently the secret to getting published in The New Yorker is to do a Kanye-worthy i’ma let you finish mike drop on the eminent Humans of New York photo series. But face it, there are times when you just want to punch the gas pedal to the dance floor and move like a jacked-up K-car! If you can relate, the Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival begins tonight at three North Brooklyn clubs. Our preview can be found below. Continue reading
