WKND SHOUT OUTS: HERE WE GO MAGIC / RJD2

by cory lesh ► Friday props go to the phenomenal free show at Zebulon featuring Glass Ghost and Here We Go Magic. Despite getting there at 11, the place was surprisingly still penetrable. Glass Ghost showcased strong vocals, much improved from the last time I saw them in Summer of ’09. Afterward, Here We Go [...]

QC INTERVIEW: RJD2

by marisa brown Quiet Color: You’ve been with a couple different great labels, but The Colossus is your first new release on your own, RJ’s Electrical Connections. How has that process been different, and what has it been like running your own? RJD2: Well, it’s probably obvious, but it’s a lot of work. There were [...]

JAY REATARD: END OF SET

by devin rogerino Here are the final songs I shot at MHOW last July, so please enjoy.  Jay’s set closers were always particularly blistering and this one was no exception.  After the jump you’ll find two more videos, “Substitute” and “It’s So Easy” –  I wish I shot more to share, but that’s all folks. [...]

JAY REATARD: WAITING FOR SOMETHING

by devin rogerino Continuing down the line of Jay’s set from last July at the MHOW is “Waiting For Something.”  You’ll notice halfway through the song I stopped recording so I could tear some shit up in the pit. C’est la vie. At this point Jay had grown leaps and bounds from his early work while [...]

JAY REATARD: I’M WATCHING YOU

by devin rogerino If you weren’t one of the lucky ones, this is as close as you’re going to get to seeing Jay live. I shot four songs on July 2, 2009 at Music Hall Of Williamsburg. I’ll be posting one every Friday for the next few. So turn it up, LOUD. This is about [...]

ELIZABETH & THE CATAPULT + JEFF TAYLOR @ MHOW

by eliza czander Last night I went to one of the more remarkable shows I’ve seen in quite a while. Elizabeth and The Catapult were headlining The Music Hall of Williamsburg, but I had a keen interest in catching opener Jeff Taylor who I’d been hearing great things about. I walked in a few songs [...]

MEW & VIOLENS @ MUSIC HALL 8/24

by steve vasko I was impressed by the Music Hall of Williamsburg last night. A chip off the Bowery Ballroom, its system is first rate and the two bar areas are well done. The NYC band Violens opened the show and did a strong short set. I wasn’t familiar with them before the show but [...]

NORTHSIDE FESTIVAL: OPENING NIGHT

by Kevin Diamond This is exciting! The inaugural Northside Festival has begun, and it’s sort of like watching a young child take it’s first steps. As opposed to some other city-spanning festivals like CMJ, Northside’s greatest strength is that it is centered around one neighborhood (Williamsburg, duh!), meaning you can easily traverse from one show [...]

GRIZZLY BEAR & HERE WE GO MAGIC @ MUSIC HALL

by frank I had been drinking all afternoon when a gracious roommate offered up his Here We Go Magic/Grizzly Bear ticket to Sunday night’s show at Music Hall of Williamsburg. I jumped at the chance to see two of Brooklyn’s brightest bands and my evening would prove majestic. Both groups offered up such conceptually orchestrated [...]

For The Vaselines, [...]
