I find this stance to be inspirational if not downright finger pointing to the lesser performers who cancel a show for a hangnail. Rock on Glen, you’re the man.
Goldenvoice and the city of Irvine have signed a contract that would allow the promoter to stage a multi-day music festival at the Orange County Great Park next year. At the center of Orange county, Irvine is at a convenient 40-mile-distance from downtown LA and they say that the festival could draw more than 150,000 people
it is a fabolous room, it is the anti-T5: the gigs are in the round and so every single seat is killer.This year is pretty good as well (though not quite as good as long year). Oh, and notice Micky’s first area performance subsequent to Davy Jones death.
Last time I saw Van Halen was in 2007, at MSG as well, and they sucked. This time eound they’ve got a really good album to push and that means more than the usual “Panama” plus… so who knows right? Sold out, so if you’re not doing anything Wednesday try out Saint Motel at Mercury Lounge. And if you do have a tix, crack it early for Kool And The Gang
Here you goMHOW = promise
Bowery Ballroom = Shadow
Handsome lads, those Gov’t Mules, aren’t they? I will be jamming down with the Southerners, most on leave from the Allman Brothers, this New Year’s Eve at Beacon Theater. What better way to make it past another year?
The surprise of the year has been Eric Contractor, whose debut album Night Escape, a baroque pop of immense power and beauty. Now we get to see him live on Wednesday at Sidewalk Cafe -a 7pm set.
I still don’t get why Deadmau5, James Murphy, Proxy and Eye are having this dance party while NIN Trent Reznor has composed the score of the movie, can someone explain?
If seeing Shinobi isn’t enough to get you out of the house, how about this? Madina Lake are also on the bill. That did it, right? See you there.
I’ve been prepping for tonight except MMJ don’t have a set setlist except they open with the dreary “Victory Song”. The band have five albums, I know one of them very well, two of them OK, and the rest not so much
Sold out MSG on Friday in a Facebook presale, Swedish House Party recently added a set at Roseland later that night. These guys are the monsters of House and the most eagerly awaited concert for dance denizens this season
Fever pitch excitement for Ryan Adams at the great Carnegie Hall on Tuesday. A solo acoustic set to go along with his acoustic recent release. I have zero prediction here. It could be the set of a life time or it could be a somnabulistic nightmare. But I can’t wait to find out.
had no intention of standing for three hours -otherwise I was open to persussion, The NO SRO meant Patti Smith (one of my finalists) was out and it also meant i was leaning hard towards Fitz And The Tantrums at the Gramercy. But they would lose.
Swedish House Mafia is the biggie here, a swift sell out (in never got past the Facebook presale). This is a huge gig for them (I believe they’re recording it), not only is it at MSG -a big room by most standards, but for dance fans anyway, it is the biggest thing this side of Miami (Or Ibiza).
For the first time since 1977 Devoto will front the infamous Buzzcocks which could be potentially be the most amazing (or pathetic) concert of all time.
She needs more “Ghosts” in her backpocket, and she needed to learn more from ex Charlie Fink. To put it bluntly, Laura’s songs are beautifully crafted, and she has a lovely voice, but they are not memorable enough. Stil, I would like to see her
Steve Wynn still sounds like Lou Reeds more harmonious kid brother, and Miracle 3 sound like the Byrds on acid, so Friday’s gig at Bowery Electric is a must see.
So I am back on Tuesday (she is also performing Monday) for the Speak Now MSG stop. What do I expect? More of the same. Why am I going? Because it’s Taylor Swift.
Next year Frank Ocean will break big. The r&b soul man is not only a friend of Odd Future (his “She” with Tyler, The Creator, is a single of the year), he has two tracks on Watch The Throne, has two excellent singles and a mixtape floating around and instantaneously sold out two nights at Bowery Ballroom.
Aretha at the same venue in September 2009 and have every intention of going again; that concert, with the spirit of Curtis Mayfield so close by, has reached mythic stature
This seems awful weird but it might be a fun night out you know. Tomorrow at the cutting Room. And Syd Straw is playing. I dunno but I’ve heard of Biba so here is the info…
When last seen, Katy Perry was sucking bad at Jingle Ball 2010, so why go to see her at MSG on Wednesday. I dunno, for that whole pop zeitgiest thing maybe, for the entire pop moment experience… for, ah what the hell, just go.
The Neutral Milk Hotel cat came out of retirment this year and has played a handful of gigs about town -incuding Occupy Wall Street, But even if he played everyday, two nights, a Friday, Saturday no less, is a big big deal in indie land
A chanteuse with a light voice and a saucy underneath, the sexy starlite never comes across even close to matronly though she must be in her 60s. D’accord?
. If you have never seen Fitz And The Tantrums live, don’t let their recorded work fool you, this is a raucuous r&b daance band who can blow any stage apart.
I was surprised at some of the albums missing . Jay-Z passing on Kingdom Come Reasonable Doubt and American Gangster?Yeah weird but nothing compared to Kanye West’s ridiculous decision to ignore debatably his greatest achievement 808s And Heartbreak
MSG on Tuesday? Big time. Why? Not Jay-Z, who has been getting worse ever since his retirement at the very same venue. Who hasn’t toured behind Dark Fantasy and is playing songs from his masterpiece.
a fave local band playing a week today
screw the english
rock nyc will be giving away a ticket to the Izod Show soon, till then here is the setlist… and what do I think? I think it's the album plus Greatest Hits. But how bad can that be? 1. H.A.M. 2. Who Gon Stop Me 3. Try A Little Tenderness 4. Otis 5. Welcome To…
hard rockin’ pro-hardcore Meat Puppets
A real treat
there are no options but to check it out for yourself.
Maybe one day when we become a big powerful website…
But will he sing “Darlin'”?
a minimum of dicking around
At least its not Sunday
the Throne at IZOD is not the same as the Throne at MSG
Tyler, Mellowhype, Frank Ocean -what’s not to like?
didn’t realize it was Kantner’s 70th birthday tour round the States
“If I could just have one big hit I’d feel so much satisfaction.”
The good thing about jam band is that they are lick porno flicks, you can just watch em until you’re done.
finally a concert I can walk to and free and 4pm on a Saturday
Eight wasn’t enough
concert tickets are becoming a luxury item.
Finally a great month for live music
all property is theft, motherfuckers
when I saw the magic ‘Buy’ box appearing, it was already too late!
