Lights Resolve is on a rocking winning streak, playing with Deftones at Kahbang Festival last month, and Foo Fighters and Pearl Jam (among others) at Deluna Fest in Florida last weekend.  Tonight, they continue sharing the stage with  heavy hitter rock acts with Ghostwolf (featuring SA from 311)  at The Gramery Theatre.  Also playing are Lights Resolve’s buddies, Exes of Evil and Bad Suns.  Get there early if you’ve yet to get a ticket and to find out how you c an get vouchers for FREE GBX shoes….what New Yorker doesn’t like that?  Doors at 7pm, 16+!

Resident NY rockers, Social Hero, will be pounding Pianos into the ground tonight and welcoming some new material, including single, “Don’t Call Me on Saturday.”  It’s been well worth the wait, and if you know Social Hero, they’ll be throwing quite the party this evening.  Purchase a ticket ahead of time  and the band will email you a promo code for FREE DOWNLOADS of the new tunes. So come on over to Pianos, get loud, get crazy, and get some new music. Doors at 7:30pm, $10, 21+. Bring your dancing shoes…!

Sometimes I get the honor of premiering and sharing brand new music, and it’s pretty flattering to have a band request Rocker Stalker as the source of their new material.  In this case, Brooklyn-based Midnight Spin is releasing their fresh off the press single, “Neuroin,”  from their debut record, Don’t Let Me Sleep.  Stream and download the single here:
You can also get the track  from the  lovely Midnight Spin site as well as important band info.  The track’s music video will be debuting in  two 2 weeks; keep your eyes peeled! Stay tuned for more album updates and CMJ show dates too.  And, remember, you heard “Neuroin” first on Rocker Stalker!

exciting things coming your way…Brought to you by RockerStalker! 🙂

Tonight’s the night. The Gypsy West are back at Bowery Electric, sharing the stage with Fountain of Wayne guitarist, Jody Porter.  The rocking gets started at 8pm, so hurry on over to the LES!  You’ll also have a chance to grab The Gypsy West’s new single, “There Are Rules!” See you there! doors at 7:30pm, 21+, $10.

After six weeks on the road and their third coast-to-coast tour this year, Brooklyn-based Outernational is back on their home turf.  Tonight,  the five-piece will not only be marking their homecoming but also celebrating the release of their latest EP, “Future Rock,” with an intimate show at 92YTribeca.  Joining them will be youthful and precocious soulful rockers, The Skins. The band recently received coverage on NY1’s “Sound Advice” segment back-to-back with Madonna and Bob Mould, announcing this  gig and showcasing the “We Are All Illegal’s” video.  Come “future rock” with Outernational at 10pm; all ages welcome!


My socks were sufficiently rocked and my face, utterly melted last night by a double dose of satisfying rock ‘n roll spirit.

The Hunt Club broke in the upstairs lounge at Bowery Electric a bit more (It only recently opened for performance purposes), and the band played a solid set drawn from their recent record Hello Futures.

My patience grew thing waiting for Alberta Cross to get back in town, but the wait was finally over and the five-piece, though presumable tired from a 2 month tour, gave it their all at Bowery Ballroom and we ecstatic to  be home.   The evening was quite the finale, performing superb set of old and new material and a cover of the Rolling Stones’ “Bitch.”  🙂

Tonight, back to back rock (with a twist) bands will be gracing the stages the Bowery’s. East meets west (and I mean LA and New York), as The Hunt Club, aka “A Cass Dillon and Jaco Caraco Experience,” will bring great grooves and ear-catching harmonies to Bowery Electric for a FREE show.  The band released their debut album, Hello Futures, just a few months ago and I’m already hooked. Check it out here! Fun fact: that photo is a Rocker Stalker original.  The three piece hits tonight at 8pm, 21+! Don’t miss out on a rare NYC appearance!

Down the road at Bowery Ballroom, Europe  meets the  US in the form of Alberta Cross,  who will be concluding their summer  tour in support of their newest record, Songs of PatienceThese guys have been hitting the big time, so catch them while you can in  a relatively intimate venue. Doors at 7pm, $16, 18+. Also playing are The Ludlow Thieves and Street Smells.
