Amen Dunes at Brooklyn Steel (June 23, 2018)

By Anthony Bauer, July 20th 2018

Earlier this year, Damon McMahon released his critically acclaimed new album Freedom (via Sacred Bones) under his moniker Amen Duneswhich is bound to end up on many year-end ‘best of’ lists (including ours). We were there for his unofficial album release show at Music Hall of Williamsburg back in March, so we were very excited to see him play again at Brooklyn Steel which also happened to be his biggest headlining show yet. As if that wasn’t enough, kicking things off for the night were two incredible bands L’rain and U.S. Girls (to which you can relive U.S. Girls and Amen Dunes via the Pitchfork Live stream here).  Read the rest of this entry »

Both Dropkick Murphys and Flogging Molly are two Irish rockers that have been doing their thing for a long time now. So it made sense that the two combined forces for a joint tour celebrating over 20 years in the game. The tour brought them to Queens on June 22 for a performance at Forest Hills Stadium along with Jake Burns of Stiff Little Fingers.

Our photographer Nick Karp was there to capture all the madness from both Dropkick Murphys’ and Flogging Molly’s performances. Find all of his shots from the performance posted in the gallery below.

Earlier this year Dr. Dog returned back into the spotlight with the release of their fantastic new album Critical Equation (via We Buy Gold Records/Thirty Tigers) that is bound to end up on many ‘best of’ lists by years end. With the announcement of the new album, you knew they’d return to New York but boy did they return in true fashion with not one, not two but three sold out nights at Brooklyn Steel. We were there for the last night of their three-night run (as well as night 2) and opening things up all three nights was another Philly resident, (Sandy) Alex G.
