On Friday, April 5th, Rough Trade NYC was the place to be to see two of the most promising bands in this scene at the moment. Swedish punk rockers Viagra Boys and Montreal’s art-rockers Pottery have been touring together and the tour’s stop to Brooklyn very much sold out and anticipated to see both the bands who were hot off some buzzy performances the week prior in Austin, Texas for SXSW.

Maggie Rogers release her long-awaited new album Heard It in a Past Life via Capitol Records.

She’s come quite a long way since we saw her play Bowery Ballroom back in 2017. Last Friday saw her play to a sold out crowd at Hammerstein Ballroom, her biggest show in NYC to date, at least until she plays two nights at Radio City Music Hall in October. Considering both of those sold out in under an hour, it’s safe to say that a room such as MSG isn’t all that far off for the rising star.

Our photographer Dana Pacifico was at Hammerstein Ballroom last Friday and captured photos from her performance, all which can be found posted in the photo gallery below.

The Nashville indie duo The Harmaleighs will release their new album She Won’t Make Sense on August 2nd via Nettwerk Music. They’ve recently let go of the album’s lead single, a track entitled “Sorry, I’m Busy”

“Sorry, I’m Busy” sees the duo of Haley Grant and Kaylee Jasperson tackle themes of paralyzing social anxiety and give it a more powerful garage rock sound while also having traces of a personal folk rock approach that is much more expansive here.

There are some artists who demand complete silence at their shows. Some ask for it, and some just command it by the sheer power of their voice. Australia’s Meg Mac is the latter. And the sold out show at Rockwood Hall of Music’s second stage were a testament to that soulful siren quality she exudes. It was the kind of night where the crowd was more than happy to let her take over. Cell phones seemingly out of sight, and no one taking over the music. Hell, you almost felt guilty for letting ice cubes in your drink clink together.

They previewed some of this new material when we caught them at House of Vans last summer but these songs are now fully fleshed out and ready to go just in time for their tour in support of the new record. This included a sold out performance this Saturday night at Bowery Ballroom, which featured an opening performance from Sneaks.
