Hop Along have been on the road all year in support of new album Bark Your Head Off, Dog which was released via Saddle Creek back in April (and we last caught them at Brooklyn Steel in May). They are ringing in the new year with a two-night run at Asbury Lanes in Asbury Park, New Jersey, with the final show taking place tonight.

Our photographer Brianna DiGioia was there for night 1 of the run last night (December 30th), which featured an opening set from Diet Cig. Hop Along also covered Daniel Johnston’s “True Love Will Find You in the End.”

Happy New Year, see you in 2019!

Manchester Orchestra and The Front Bottoms are rock bands that tap into some serious layers of emotion, which made them a perfect pair to go on tour together this winter, including a two night run at Brooklyn Steel.

Our photographer Dutch Doscher was in attendance for night 2 on December 15th. They took rotating turns headlining each night and this show had The Front Bottoms kicking off the show with Manchester Orchestra bringing it all home.

Glen Hansard at Vicar Street (December 20, 2018)

By Will Oliver, December 23rd 2018

All photos by Anthony Mulcahy

It took only two songs for Glen Hansard to absolutely blow me away at Newport Folk Festival this summer, so I can only imagine what a nearly 4-hour set would be like (yes, you read that correctly).

Hansard is wrapping up a year of touring in support of his new album Between Two Shores (released via ANTI-) and our photographer Anthony Mulcahy went back home to Ireland for the holidays and caught Hansard’s performance at Dublin venue Vicar Street on December 20th featured a wide variety of guests of all ages.

Find all of his shots from Hansard’s performance posted in the gallery below.

Drinks at Market Hotel (December 14, 2018)

By Will Oliver, December 21st 2018

Drinks, the duo of Cate Le Bon and Tim Presley of White Fence, returned this year with their sophomore album Hippo Lite via Drag City. The last time we caught them was three years ago when they performed at Baby’s All Right as a part of CMJ. They made their return to Brooklyn on December 14th for a packed performance at Market Hotel (that was rescheduled from its original date of September 21).

The last time I caught Drinks they performed just as a duo but this time around they were backed by a full band that helped flesh out their songs and bring them to life in wonderful fashion. They wandered through tracks from both records and gave them an even more eccentric burst of life in the sweaty confines of Market Hotel than they do on the recordings.

Find a full gallery of photos from their performance posted below, along with the setlist.
