Bleachers at Brooklyn Steel (November 21, 2017)

By Will Oliver, December 21st 2017 — with 1 comment

Indie pop-rockers Bleachers, the project of high-profile producer Jack Antonoff, released their new album Gone Now via RCA Records this June. We caught them at a few festivals over the summer and they returned to New York again in the fall for a pair of shows in Manhattan (Terminal 5) and Brooklyn (Brooklyn Steel).

Our photographer Joe Saturday caught their Brooklyn Steel performance on November 21, which featured opening sets from two opening coming pop artists in Bishop Briggs (who Joe also caught at Music Hall of Williamsburg in May) and Amy Shark. Based on Antonoff’s ear, these are two artists that pop fans should keep an eye on.

Aussie rockers Middle Kids released their debut album Lost Friends via Domino Records on May 4th. We last caught the band at Baby’s All Right, not long after they first signed with Domino. To celebrate the album’s release, Spotify held a private concert for the top Middle Kids listeners a few days early on May 2nd at Public Arts.

After a lovely opening set from Wilsen, Middle Kids took the stage to treat their Spotify fans to a twelve-song set, drawing heavily from their debut LP as well as a cover of Don’t Take the Money by Bleachers.

Amy Shark at Bowery Ballroom (March 13, 2018)

By Joe Saturday, April 5th 2018

RCA recording artist Amy Shark released her debut EP, Night Thinker, last year. The last time we caught the Australian singer-songwriter, she opened for Bleachers at Brooklyn Steel. On April 13th, despite a nor’easter hitting the New York City area earlier in the day, we were in attendance for Amy’s performance in front of a sold out crowd at the Bowery Ballroom. It was the penultimate show of a headlining tour throughout North America that began in Los Angeles and ended in Boston.

Backed by a two-piece band — a drummer and a multi-instrumentalist at keyboard and bass — Shark roamed the stage with the microphone in hand as she crooned and captivated the audience. Mid-set, she took up an acoustic guitar to perform a couple of solo songs before going electric and inviting her band back to the stage to cover Eminem’s “Superman.” Keeping the audience engaged between songs, Amy often regaled the crowd with charming anecdotes and brief explanations about certain song meanings.

After an epic day 1 and day 2 at Outside Lands 2017, day 3 closed down in equally epic fashion with a headlining performance from all-time greats The Who, new pop sensation Lorde, a surprise pop-up set from Big Boi, as well as sets from the likes of Young The Giant, Bleachers, Maggie Rogers and Jacob Banks.

Our photographer Bryan Lasky captured all the action for us, find his shots posted in the gallery below.

Recap: Governors Ball 2017 [Day 1]

By Will Oliver, June 14th 2017 — with 2 comments

When I think of summer coming into bloom, I think of the Governors Ball Music Festival. At least for me, it’s usually the first music festival of the summer I’ll attend, and having it so close to home makes it special. After attending this year’s edition, I have now attended all six editions of the fest since it moved to its not permanent home of Randalls Island, watching it gradually grow in size each year. Although rain once again threatened in the days ahead of the festival, we lucked out with some great weather, with only a few light drizzles throughout the weekend.

Governors Ball 2017 Announces Set Times

By Will Oliver, May 18th 2017 — with 1 comment

With Governors Ball just a mere two weeks away, the festival has finally revealed the set times for this year’s edition of the festival. With so many artists that you want to see playing at the same place, there’s naturally going to be some rather unfortunate conflicts.

Here are some conflicts (at least in my mind) that will force some people to make some tough choices:

Lollapalooza Anounces 2014 Lineup

By Will Oliver, March 27th 2014

Lollapalooza

The 2014 Lollapalooza lineup was announced yesterday, and it seems to be garnering some mixed reactions. Headlining the fest are Outkast (duh), Eminem, Kings Of Leon, Arctic Monkeys, Skrillex, Calvin Harris, Lorde, The Avett Brothers and Foster The People. I can understand the disappointment. While it’s (of course) great to see Arctic Monkeys there, the rest of the list is pretty subpar.

From there, here are some artists listed that caught my eye: Interpol, Cut Copy, Portugal. The Man, Nas, Childish Gambino, Broken Bells, Spoon, Young The Giant, Lykke Li, Chance The Rapper, Phantogram, Grouplove, CHVRCHES, Chromeo, Darkside, The 1975, Jenny Lewis, Phosphorescent, The Temper Trap, Bombay Bicycle Club, White Denim, Typhoon, Warpaint, Kate Nash, Kodaline, Lucius, Blood Orange, Jagwar Ma, Parquet Courts, Temples, NoNoNo, Papa, The Districts, Ratking, The So So Glos,

While the headliners aren’t all that spectacular, the other acts playing the festival are solid. So basically the day section of Lollapalooza may be where the real action is.

Check out the full lineup with the photo above, or check out a day by day breakdown below.
