“This is Dean Wareham’s town.” No that wasn’t something yelled out at Industry City on a beautifully cool Friday night in August. That was Stephen Malkmus speaking to a Bowery Ballroom crowd back in February 2014. But even though Dean Wareham now calls the west coast home, the sentiment remains. And anyone in the crowd at Industry City on August 24 would’ve been hard pressed to disagree as his band Luna reclaimed their hold on their old city.

Music can transcend so many things. It can be the bridge across the chasmic void. Or it can be the spark that causes you to lock arms with a complete stranger and face down the oncoming high tides. And when a band is as sonically charged and melodic as Mashrou’ Leila, you don’t need to understand the Arabic lyrics to be lifted to a higher plane of understanding. And that’s exactly what went down in front of packed Bowery Ballroom on a hot, sweaty September night in New York.

This Lebanese five-piece has been making waves here for a few years now, and it’s nice to see this North American road trip largely devoid of a horrific event that thrusts the band into the spotlight, because let’s face it, this band deserves to be known for their rocking tunes before anything else. And that in no way is meant to detract from the amazing social awareness that they bring with them in music and interaction with their fans.

After so many years hard at work, it’s amazing to see the rise of Portugal. The Man ever since the release of their chart-topping smash hit “Feel It Still.” We noticed a buzz in the air when we caught them last year at both The Capitol Theatre and Terminal 5 and it seemed clear that this was a new era for the band. The song was absolutely everywhere in 2018 and it led to them playing their biggest NYC show to date, with a performance at Forest Hills Stadium on September 22.

The bill also featured performances from Lucius, Jungle, and Hobo Johnson & The Lovemakers. You can find shots from all the performances posted in the gallery below, all of which were taken by our photographer Nick Karp.

Longstanding Scottish rockers Simple Minds are best known for their 80s smash “Don’t You (Forget About Me),” thanks to pitch-perfect placement in The Breakfast Club. But the bands have outlasted many of their peers throughout their 40-year career, releasing 18 studio albums along the way, including this year’s Walk Between Worlds.

Beach goth rockers The Growlers continue thier always hard touring ways (we caught them just last year at Brooklyn Bowl). They’re currently supporting their new album Casual Acquaintances, which features a collection of “demos, works-in-progress and other unfinished business,” and was released via their own Beach Goth Records.

They recently stopped back in to New York for a two-night jaunt at Brooklyn Bowl. Our photographer Dutch Doscher was there on night 2 on September 21 and captured photos of their performance, as well as openers Surfbort.

Find all of his shots posted in the gallery below, along with The Growlers’ setlist.

Like so many other people, I was introduced to Rooney through their appearance on The O.C. back in 2004. The band, named after Ed Rooney from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, hit it off with ear-catching tunes like “I’m Shakin’”. Their style on the self-titled debut album felt like the West Coast’s answer to The Strokes (with whom they’ve toured), with a hint of retro flair.

Rooney continued producing music through the decade, with Calling the World (2007), Eureka (2010) and Washed Away (2012). Most recently, Rooney has released an EP, El Cortez (2017), channeling a more neon-fueled and synth-happy vibe.

On September 20, Rooney played to a packed house at the Brooklyn Bowl, full of both dedicated fans and the local patron who chanced on a familiar name. All while their iconic California flag logo was displayed proudly behind them.

Find a full set of photos from their performance posted in the gallery below, along with openers Mating Ritual and DD Walker.
