SXSW DAY ONE

by kevin diamond It was easy to pick a highlight from the first day of the South By South West festival here in Austin; I’d be surprised if it didn’t end up being the highlight of my entire week. It was getting a raspberry blown on my belly by Pink Eyes of Fucked Up. They [...]

DYNASTIES & DARLINGS @ GLASSLANDS

by Joel Chaffee Glasslands, in the boonies of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, boasts a lovely decor of corrugated tin ceiling and some sort of bridge support keeping the building up. This atmosphere suited Tuesday night’s opening band, Dynasties, just fine. The two-man effort distorted and drummed its way through half-a-dozen numbers, with alternating two-chord riffs and brief [...]

THE HOTTEST PARTY EVER

by fiyoki (pics by andre salyer & marina meyer) So in case you missed it, we threw an absolute barn burner on Friday night as the first ever Quiet Color fundraiser popped off in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Temperatures were topping out in the 80s and the open bar ran for over five hours so the vibe [...]

THE QC EVENT OF 2009

by the QC Staff As a non-profit music site we’ve never asked for a kickback before. Instead we decided to throw a ridiculous loft party to start the summer with open bar Magic Hat beer and Sangria, 4 live performances featuring Enban, Daytime, Dinosaur Feathers, and Darlings, plus hourly raffle giveaways including 4 tickets to [...]

INDIE NEWS REEL: 6/24

by charles poladian (pixies pic by renaud monfourny) The Reel goes on even though summer seems to have retreated. The rain can put me in a mood, but there is so much new music it is hard to feel blue for too long. Looking on the bright side of things, some of our favorite bands [...]

NORTHSIDE DAY THREE: ANAMANAGUCHI, WOODS, BISHOP ALLEN

by kevin diamond The Shanks should be re-named The Stank. That’s a bad pun, but DAMN that place is hot, moist (ew) and smokey as hell. By the time I left (about an hour before Kurt Vile started his 1:00 set late, at 2:20) I felt like I’d been swimming in the accumulated sweat of [...]

NORTHSIDE DAY TWO: DARLINGS, WORKOUT, BEETS

by kevin diamond Here’s my beef: If a set’s supposed to start at midnight, and I get there at 12:20, that show should still be going on. Instead, I entered Public Assembly to see Screaming Females, the band I wanted to see most this weekend breaking down their gear, the dudes from pow wow! shaking [...]

Shark?, Darlings, The Sundelles and Pow Wow! fill the bill which kicks off at 9 p.m.  We’d like to make [...]

QC LIVE GUIDE: 5/6 – 5/13

by neil roberts In the South of India, people used to catch monkeys in a very special way. Actually, they let monkeys catch themselves. What they did is cut a small hole in a coconut, just large enough for a monkey to put its hand in. Next, they fixed the coconut to a tree, and [...]
