Warpaint live at Webster Hall

At one point, Emily announced that this would be last last show in NYC for some time. It may look like they never stop touring, she said, but they would stop soon. Somehow, this kind of sentiment hung in the air on Tuesday night at Webster Hall: a long, successful[…]

Warpaint at Prospect Park Bandshell

While Warpaint’s social media streams were buzzing with excitement about their gig at Glastonbury, they still had a job to do in Brooklyn on Thursday: a free show for the Celebrate Brooklyn series. At that is not shabby either: up to 7,000 people fit into the area and as far[…]

Twin Wave live at Spike Hill

There’s no shortage of great music in New York City, especially Brooklyn these days. Formed in 2013, Twin Wave are starting through full force in 2014! After a four weeks residency at Arelene’s Grocery, Twin Wave are now performing at other venues throughout the borrows, and I was lucky enough[…]

Strange Talk live at Music Hall of Williamsburg

SXSW Day Three Roundup: Ha Ha Tonka, Warpaint, Psychic Twin

SXSW Day 2 roundup: Warpaint, No, Nothing More and More

We got a late start into day 2 after a good night’s rest. The plan was to check into the convention center for some sessions and interviews, but a tweet sent us to Swan Dive around the corner to check out UK band Thumpers, who brought us in the mood[…]

SXSW First Day Roundup: Banks, Weeknight, Polytype and More

After Delta changed our flights from a comfy direct to one that takes off at 6 am and includes a layover in Atlanta, we knew this would be a long day. We arrived in Austin around noon (including a one hour time difference), but could fortunately check into our hotel[…]
