By Miles Bowe / September 20, 2013
Last night the Yeah Yeah Yeahs took the stage at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. They released the new album Mosquito (which we really enjoyed) earlier this year, and are now closing in on the end of their tour.

Oneohtrix Point Never @ Our Lady Of Lebanon Church, Williamsburg 9/17/13

By Miles Bowe / September 18, 2013
If you've only occasionally tuned into Daniel Lopatin's music under the moniker Oneohtrix Point Never, the idea of him playing in a church might seem odd. For someone whose recordings, especially the massive compilation Rifts, often remind people of soundtracks for old sci-fi films, it might seem like a strange setting for his live show. More »

Photos: Windhand @ St. Vitus, Brooklyn, NY 9/6/13

By Miles Bowe / September 9, 2013
If you read our August edition of the Black Market you might remember seeing Windhand in the No. 1 spot. With good reason, too -- their new album, Soma, is absolutely crushing. From the opening sludgy riffs of "Orchard," to the epic 30+ minute closer "Boleskin," it's one of the best metal album… More »

AlunaGeorge @ Music Hall Of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, NY 9/6/13

By Claire Lobenfeld / September 9, 2013
One of the most immediately recognizable things about London synth&B duo AlunaGeorge is that despite the small size of the group, its output is extraordinarily tight. The same can be said about their debut performance in Brooklyn last Friday. It was their second New York show, clocking in at 45 minutes with no encore, but… More »

Behind The Scenes At Fool’s Gold’s Day Off 2013

By Puja Patel / September 4, 2013
On Monday, the Brooklyn-based Fool's Gold label carried on its tradition of hat-tipping old New York with an annual Day Off block party. Helmed by founders A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs, the free party that once took over the backyard parking lot of a Manhattan bar had clearly grown with the label's popularity, sprawling over Williamsburg… More »

Captured Tracks Five-Year Anniversary Festival @ The Well, Brooklyn, NY 8/31/13 & 9/1/13

By Claire Lobenfeld / September 3, 2013
Over the past five years, Brooklyn indie label Captured Tracks has delivered a meticulously curated output, from superstars-in-their-own-right DIIV, Wild Nothing, Beach Fossils, and Mac DeMarco to reissues of '80s UK indie pop luminaries like the Cleaners From Venus and the Wake with a legion of other artists in between. So it was more tha… More »

Photos: The National, Daughter @ Hollywood Forever Cemetery, Hollywood 8/11/13

By Andrew Youssef / August 12, 2013
After having Bob Weir make a special appearance during their set at Outside Lands, the National made their way south for a haunting set at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. Matt Berninger couldn't help himself by quipping that it looked dead out there. Some of the many highlights included "Conversation 16" which had the crowd… More »

Outside Lands 2013 Sunday: Vampire Weekend, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Willie Nelson, & More

By Miles Bowe / August 12, 2013
The final day of Outside Lands was definitely a more mellow affair than Saturday with its NIN headlined attack. Most people entering in the afternoon were greeted by Kurt Vile's excellent set on the Sutro Stage. Later a small, but dedicated group headed to an unlisted secret show by The Head And The HeartMore »

Outside Lands 2013 Saturday: Nine Inch Nails, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Grizzly Bear, & More

By Miles Bowe / August 11, 2013
Saturday at Outside Lands was a typical second day at festivals. The sets ran smoother, there were less technical problems, and the crowds seemed a little more laid back after the initial day 1 excitement dissipated. The sets today were just as incredible as yesterday, but with a completely different vibe – one of the… More »

Way Out West 2013 Day 3: Kendrick Lamar, Cat Power, Disclosure, & More

By Tom Breihan / August 11, 2013
On Friday, I sat down for a beer with Joel Borg, one of the founders of Gothenburg, Sweden's Way Out West festival. (I might post the whole conversation later if I get time; it was an interesting one.) The festival's booking has a general sonic identity of its own, one that exists somewhere near the… More »

By Miles Bowe / August 10, 2013
Yesterday Outside Lands '13 kicked off in San Francisco, and there's already been a ton of memorable moments, from food to comedy to many great sets. The first real highlight of the day was the Men.

Way Out West 2013 Day 2: The Knife, Miguel, Giorgio Moroder, & More

By Tom Breihan / August 10, 2013
Giorgio Moroder dances by stabbing two fingers in the air, like the aging European man that he is. He also plays air-slap-bass. The Italo-disco legend is here in Sweden, at Gothenburg's Way Out West festival, to DJ in the afternoon sun. There are trees all around him, and he's in front of a placid duck… More »
