NYPost Discovers Bushwick Rock Shows

The NYPost’s exposé on “the epicenter of Bushwick’s hardcore scene” takes us for a ride on the J/M/Z to where Nomos, Pregnant, Drunkdriver (who have a great new record out via Load), and Byrds Of Paradise (who’ve recorded with Woods’ Jarvis Taveniere) are “garnering attention from music industry execs” by heading up “the hottest underground movement since the Strokes and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs reignited New York rock ’n’ roll a decade ago.” Visit “mosh pit city,” aka the New York you read about in books. If you dare?

UPDATE: After sexual assault allegations against Drunkdriver (and ex-Wives) drummer Jeremy Villalobos surfaced last week, the band called it quits. Exclaim! has since posted a thorough piece on the situation.

  1. Isn’t just about every underground scene the hottest underground movement since the Strokes and Yeah Yeah Yeahs? Remember when Swedish indie bands were all the rage? Shit-gaze? Chillwave? Electroclash?

  2. DrunkDriver just broke up due to controversy surrounding allegations that member Jeremy had a history of sexual assault.
