Concert Reviews

British indie rockers The Magic Gang released their self-titled debut album last year via Warner Music UK and got some great praise overseas but the album sadly seemed to go rather underlooked here stateside. But last week (on September 11th) the band made the trip here to the States for their U.S. debut performance in Brooklyn at Baby’s All Right, that kicked off with an intimate and emotional performance from Brooklyn’s Stello.

Mitski has seen her career blossom ever since the release of her breakthrough 2014 album Bury Me at Makeout Creek, touring pretty much non-stop since then, all the way through to last years Be the Cowboy (released via Dead Oceans), an album that thrust her even further into the spotlight. But that’s a lot of touring (we saw her last December at Brooklyn Steel as well as at Governors Ball), so it’s understandable that she announced an indefinite hiatus, with the two final shows (for now) coming last weekend at Summerstage in Central Park. Both shows featured an opening set from Lucy Dacus, whose still touring in support of her 2018 album Historian (released via Matador Records).

Our photographer Brianna DiGioia was there to capture photos from the Night 2 performance on September 8th. Find photos and the setlists from both Mitski and Lucy Dacus’ performances posted in the gallery below.

Weyes Blood has captured our heart all year long with her outstanding new album Titanic Rising, which was released via Sub Pop. It’s one of the best albums of the year, one that has never left our rotation.

Natalie Mering and her band have been touring hard this summer in support of the record, which brought them back to New York on September 7th for a sold out show at Webster Hall.

Our photographer Dave Scholten was there to capture photos from the performance, all of which can be found posted in the gallery below, along with the setlist.

The Raconteurs have been touring all summer in support of their long-awaited third album Help Us Stranger, released via Third Man Records. The band stopped in to New York earlier this year for a run of super intimate underplays to celebrate the release of the album, and returned this weekend for three much larger shows that saw them play two nights in Manhattan at Hammerstein Theatre (September 5th & 6th) and then one night in Brooklyn at Kings Theatre (September 7th).

Vampire Weekend released their long-awaited and highly-anticipated new album Father Of The Bride back in May (via Columbia Records), which made it quite a long wait for fans to get a proper homecoming tour in support of the album at Madison Square Garden this past Friday night (September 6th). There was the intimate run of shows near the album’s release date that included a legendary 56-song performance at Webster Hall), but for the fans that missed out on those shows, they had to patiently wait nearly five months to see the proper homecoming show at The World’s Most Famous Arena.
