Upcoming Shows I Would See...

Sunday July 27

McCarren Park Pool

This is just the kind of music you want to groove to in an empty pool in Queens on a hot day: A Brooklyn band with simple melodies and inventive instrumentation. It borders on a little trippy and screams Summer.

at the Bowery Ballroom
with Via Audio, The Paper Raincoat and Anya Marina

Old Springs Pike, now called The Spring Standards, are a local band with a bright sound, layered harmonies and rock melodies with a healthy tinge of good old country.
Sneak preview here!

Via Audio is another band that plays locally a lot (and I also ran into them in Austin) and have quite the flattering reputation as performers.

Jupiter One

Bowery Ballroom

I predict that Jupiter One is about to be big. Their music has a poppy dance beat with some electric reverb thrown in on the guitar. The sound is unique, as they attempt to blur the lines between synthesizers and guitars. The songs just make you want to bounce and croon along.
Don't believe me? Listen for yourself here

Or just buy tickets right now!
