Tonight, one my favorite band pairs, Blackbells and The Wicked Tomorrow will be electrifying Bowery Electric beginning at 9pm. It will be TWT’s second show of the evening as they are busy with Northside Festival this weekend. Come on out to Bowery Electric; 21+, $10.

Heading beyond RS boundaries in Farmingdale, NY, Nature of City will be playing their album, Spacemen Need Earthsuits, in full at The Crazy Donkey, at MIDNIGHT. You can get tickets here or it’s $15 at the door.

It has arrived.  Rocker Stalker presents a production at Glasslands in Williamsburg,  featuring Hi Mountain, The Wicked Tomorrow, Papertwin, and Year of the Tiger. Doors are at 7:30pm, 21+, $8. Come find me…


Tonight, Bowery Electric will be sweltering in the summer heat and the sultry slide guitars, devilish distortion, and burning blues of The Dead Exs. The NYC-based duo are celebrating their album, “The Resurrection,” released by vocalist/guitarist David Patillo’s revival rock label, Bang Bang Boogaloo, highlighting tracks, such as the ominous “Whole Lotta Nothin,” sexy “Shut Up and Love Me,” and grooving instrumental, “Nolita Strut.”  The gig will also showcase artists handpicked by BBB, who were featured on the label’s latest compilation, “New York Rock and Roll 1:” Golden Animals, The Dirty Glamour, The Fieros, and Only Living Boy.  Doors are at 7:30pm, so get there early to experience NY rock to the fullest.  21+

If you missed the double-booked evening on Friday, June 3, here’s a glimpse into the night with decibel. at Arlene’s Grocery and Apollo Run at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2!

Come rock in the name of Rocker Stalker with some of NYC’s top up-and-comers at Glasslands in Williamsburg on Sunday, June 12. This also  kicks off the start of Northside Festival happening from June 16-19 for several of the performing bands!



Firstly, happy birthday to Matt Reich of Lights Resolve ( a day early)! Secondly, come celebrate appropriately by listening to Lights Resolve rock some of their upcoming album’s songs at Bowery Electric alongside Exes of Evil, This Condition, and Bad Suns. Finally, to make matters better, it’s FREE and 18+! Doors are at 7:30pm!

It’s true. New York is never short of things to do, but let me guide your ears toward a couple events that are sure to please and get you the most bang for your buck.

Beginning at 8pm at Arlene’s Grocery, decibel. (now a trio!), will blow your mind and be accompanied by Delaware’s Revolution, I Love You.  It’s 21+ and 10$.

Down the street and around the corner at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2, more high quality music will be brought to you by Apollo Run who hit the stage at 11pm. FREE SHOW!

If you live or happen to be in the San Francisco Bay area tomorrow, June 4, you should be doing two things: wearing flowers in your hair and going to check out New York City’s fashionista, rock re-inventors, Reckless Sons at the TEDxSF  Event.

“TED is a small nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design,” and  Reckless Sons’ vocalist, Matt Butler, takes some time to ‘Entertain’  TED with some statements on the NY lifestyle, RS philosophy, and the band’s new EP, which is available for download for FREE and will be showcased at the event. You’ve got an entire day to learn all the words!

Additionally, if you were in the Brooklyn vicinity and did not catch Reckless Sons’ Memorial Day show at Rock Shop, here’s what you missed along with some shots of The Courtesy Tier, who also performed.

In one corner, we have Brooklyn’s bad ass bigwigs, Black Taxi , and bravely facing them in the battle for a spot at Alive@5, is Rowayton, CT’s throw down, throwback-ers,  The Woulda Coulda Shouldas.  Come witness the showdown on Bedford Street at Broad Street in downtown Stamford at 5pm and find out who moves on to open for Third Eye Blind on June 23.
