DEER TICK & DR. DOG @ TERMINAL 5

by Mike Schoeck New York always seems to be the touring band’s home away from home, and as such, bands seem to always give their A-game. Philly’s Dr. Dog brought out all the staples of their latest timeless indie-pop-tinged classic rock, as featured on their first major-label effort, Shame, Shame, at their Saturday night show at [...]

NIN & MEW @ TERMINAL 5 – 8/26

post and pics by marc evan NIN at Terminal 5.  After attending two very different NIN shows this week (the prior being the epic Webster Hall show on Sunday), I am physically and emotionally drained.  Mew opened with a short but wonderful set.  They played a bunch of new songs but I was most thankful [...]

METRIC @ TERMINAL 5

by ledoux & pelly (pictures by marc evan) An effervescent Emily Haines neutralized the architecturally inefficient Terminal 5 last night. Touring for their album Fantasies, Metric kicked off their short but satisfying set with “Twilight Galaxy” and would settle in as the concert wore on. The band’s connections to NYC were evident in their performance [...]

PERFECT PROBLEM: REGINA VS METRIC ON 6/17

alex p. This week I realized the horrible coincidence of Regina Spektor and Metric playing on the very same evening in Manhattan. It’s yet to be confirmed if Regina will play any added NYC dates which has led me into one of the world’s greatest quandaries: Regina Spektor or Emily Haines. I figure the only [...]

48 HOURS WITH RATATAT

by stephanie berland Brooklyn based electronic band Ratatat played back-to-back shows (Tuesday, April 21st and Wednesday, April 22nd) at NYC’s Terminal 5.  Guitarist Mike Stroud and bassist Evan Mast took the stage at 9:30 p.m., opening with “Shiller,” and playing straight through until 11 p.m., stopping only briefly to leave the stage before coming back [...]

VAMPIRE WEEKEND @ TERMINAL 5

review by eliza czander photos by marc evan I usually wouldn’t read a concert review of a band I’m going to be reviewing only a day later. Especially when it’s The Times. But, on the 2 train uptown last night, I was thumbing through the paper, and I just couldn’t help myself. The one word [...]

GIRL TALK @ TERMINAL 5

by eliza czander and marc evan DJ mastermind & mash extraordinaire Girl Talk rocked Terminal 5 on two consecutive nights this weekend. I’m just writing about it now because that’s how long it’s taken me to recover. The energy at this show was fucking electric. There were costumes, glow sticks, and obviously lots o’ drugs. [...]

CONOR OBERST & BEN KWELLER ROCK TERMINAL 5

by marc evan Conor Oberst and the Mystic Valley Band set a new high standard for folk rock. I have been fortunate enough to see many great rock shows recently. Most of these so-called great shows are a reflection of the performers getting up on stage and playing their music well. This was not the [...]

DECEMBERISTS @ TERMINAL 5

by eliza czander I was hesitant to go to The Decemberists concert last night at Terminal 5. It was pouring, I was going alone, and I would have to drive home after. Oh, and I would have to find a way to sneak in with only a photo pass. I didn’t know if this was [...]

MEAT PUPPETS/DINOSAUR JR./BUILT TO SPILL @ TERMINAL5

by kevin diamond (photos by vin diamo) Thursday Night’s triple threat of classic indie bands seemed too good to be true. It wasn’t. Let’s be frank, shall we. Meat Puppets, the godfathers of Grunge. Dinosaur Jr, arguably the best band to come out of the indie underground in the 80s. Built to Spill playing their [...]
