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 [...]

BISHOP ALLEN @ BOWERY BALLROOM

by kevin diamond “This is either an auspicious beginning or an inauspicious beginning” explained singer Justin Rice. Bishop Allen had just finished their first song, and the bass amp was engulfed in flames. “I’m gonna go with inauspicious.” It was a memorable start to a show that was at times energetic and at other times [...]

FILLIGAR: NEAR OR FAR

by foxxy I often worry that bands are subconsciously influenced by the sounds of successful music around them.

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 [...]

AUSTIN CITY LIMITS 9/26-9/29

by zander nation  Austin perennially holds its place amongst the indie rock league leaders. Every September, Austin City Limits serves as the city’s festival followup to South by Southwest and brings droves of music addicts from around the globe. The 2008 lineup may yield somewhat to years past, but the knock is slight with acts such as [...]

KWASSA KWASSA

by bobby Vampire Weekend has a good thing going with music video director Richard Ayoade. The video for “Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa” came out August 1st and throws you smack in the midst of an 80′s movie minus John Cusack.

QC @ BONNAROO THURSDAY

I spent the night at only one stage as a superior lineup ensued: MGMT followed by Battles and finishing with a set by Vampire Weekend. MGMT, which officially goes by Management, gave a great show full of the usual [...]
