On Sunday, January 19 at 2 PM, acclaimed recording artist Caroline Polachek will be performing an exclusive free acoustic keyboard set and album signing at Rough Trade in Williamsburg (64 North 9th Street).
One of 2019’s most buzzed-about artists, Caroline Polachek released her critically-acclaimed album Pang, which landed on numerous Best Of 2019 Year-End lists, marks the beginning of a new chapter for the former Chairlift singer and has yielded the inescapable pop hit “So Hot You’re Hurting My Feelings.”
Pang is the most ambitious, hardcore and beautiful album of her career to date. With her signature ‘organic autotune’ and liquid lyricism finally center stage, the record positions her firmly as one of the most singular and captivating singers of a generation.

Dutch quartet Mozes and the Firstborn, who released their new album Dadcore last Friday, and will be performing February 15 at 9 PM at Williamsburg’s RoughTrade (64 North 9th Street). Tickets are $12 (or $14 at the door) and can be purchased here.
Mozes and the Firstborn spent the past year writing new material, recording in the US and Netherlands with producer/mixer Chris Coady (Beach House, Slowdive) and Roland Cosio (together PANGEA, Fuzz), hitting SXSW and touring the states supporting Bodega. The result? Dadcore embraces the feel of a mixtape, as Mozes blend their favorite styles and genres into an intriguing collection of songs, including prior 2018 single, “Sad Supermarket Song,” which already has 400k plays on Spotify.
Playing a potent mix of sleazy grunge and power pop perfection, Mozes and the Firstborn hail from Eindhoven, Netherlands. The band started out in 2010 with Melle Dielesen on vocals, guitar, Corto Blommaert on bass and Raven Aartsen on drums, with Ernst-Jan van Doorn joining prior to their 2011 debut EP I Got Skills. California label Burger Records signed the band to release their self-titled debut full-length in 2014, followed by Great Pile Of Nothing in 2016, touring internationally in support, with like-minded artists such as The Growlers, Unknown Mortal Orchestra and Together Pangea, while garnering features on NPR’s Weekend Edition, Pitchfork, Noisey, SPIN, CLASH, amongst others.
