Preview: High Waisted At Sea 5

By Will Oliver, August 12th 2019

This Friday night High Waisted At Sea 5: A Rock ‘n’ Roll Booze Cruise hosted by local New York surf rockers High Waisted will take place and it’s not to be missed.

The boat show is always a good time but this is their fifth and final boat show which means it’s your last chance to rock out with these guys on a freaking boat. Not only that, but there’s an open bar, photo booth, and plenty of other reasons why you should grab one of the last remaining tickets for the show right here.

We hope to see you there. Stay tuned for our coverage of the show coming very soon.

Last weekend The Flaming Lips returned with their 15th studio album King’s Mouth via Warner Records.

They’re currently on tour in support of the new LP, which includes a performance next Tuesday night (July 30th) at The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, New York.

Not only do they play, but the opening set will be a powerhouse of talent as well, including The Claypool Lennon Delirium and Particle Kid (J. Micah Nelson, son of Willie Nelson).

Tickets for the show can still be bought here. We’re looking forward to seeing The Flaming Lips bring their colorful and extravagant live show to Port Chester and hope to see you there.

Last month Seattle folk outfit The Head and the Heart returned with their new album Living Mirage via Warner Bros. Records/Reprise Records. They celebrated its release day with an intimate performance at Bowery Ballroom and will return this Sunday with a much larger showing in Queens at Forest Hills Stadium.

The show, which is the inaugural year of the ALT92.3 Summer Open, sports a lineup that will also feature performances from Young The Giant, Fitz & The Tantrums and Chris Carrabba of Dashboard Confessional. It will be a great diverse day of music that will go perfectly for a nice summer day at Forest Hills.

There are still some tickets available for the show which can be found here.

The National have kept my ears plenty busy for the past month with the release of their lovely new album (and short film) I Am Easy to Find (via 4AD) and gave us a few sneak peaks of the new music in the live format with a memorable performance at Beacon Theatre and a slightly more intimate one at the iHeartRadio Theater.

Next week the band returns to us lucky New Yorkers once again for two nights at BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival at Prospect Park Bandshell as a part of their proper full tour in support of the album which includes an opening performance from Courtney Barnett on both nights. Not a bad way to spend an evening in Brooklyn, eh?

Tickets are sold out for Night 1 on June 12th but there are still some available for Night 2 on June 13th, at least for now. So move quick, and we hope to see you there!

MGMT are still touring hard in support of their delightful 2018 album Little Dark Age that will bring them back to New York next week.

On Monday, May 20, the band will stop into Port Chester, New York for a performance at the prestigious Capitol Theatre.

This is the band’s first time playing in New York since their two-night run at Brooklyn Steel and will feature an opening performance from Warpaint and will be a much different show experience than the band’s upcoming Webster Hall dates that will follow.

You can still find some tickets available to buy for the show here and stay tuned post-show for our coverage.

Last year saw soul rockers St. Paul and the Broken Bones return with their new album Young Sick Camellia.

Some tickets for the show are still for sale but don’t sleep, these guys always bring a show-stopping force that shouldn’t be missed.

Preview: Georgi Kay at Rough Trade NYC

By Will Oliver, November 28th 2018

Earlier this month Australian indie pop musician Georgi Kay recently released her new album Where I Go to Disappear via Monoki Records. She’s currently on tour supporting the album opening up some tour dates with Peter Bjorn and John, including their sold out performance at Rough Trade NYC on Friday night.

It will be a great 1-2 punch featuring two very different forms of pop at work but a combination that should be a dream for all those lucky enough to secure a ticket.

Stay tuned for coverage from the show right here in the days following the show. We can’t wait to see what kind of night that Kay and PB&J have in store for us.
