Sooooo it’s Friday…..did you miss the pre-sale that was happening on Wednesday? Don’t fret! You can get tickets for some of my personal favorites Alt-J, Beach Fossils and Indians at NOON today. Seriously, get your tickets otherwise you’ll be really sad and all of your friends will hate you.
Django Django has, irrefutably, one of the best albums of 2012. Refreshingly minimalistic, the quartet from London epitomizes the revival of the pre-psychadelic era of music. Melodious and vibrant, the group’s self titled debut album is a gem. The songwriting is spot on, shifting between a myriad of emotions to form a truly complex piece of art. The group will be performing two shows at Music Hall of Williamsburg, one on March 6th and the other on March 7th. Grab your tickets at noon, they will sell out.
Colorado folk-rockers The Lumineers are coming to NYC for not one but two shows at Terminal 5 on February 1st and 2nd. The trio released their debut self titled album in April of this year and quickly skyrocketed to the top of the charts. Their song “Ho Hey” was even featured in a commercial, now I still don’t know how much of a compliment that is but it got the group’s name out there, and with it lots of fans. Grab your tickets at noon today, I will tell you now that both shows will sell out.
Danish indie rockers, Efterklang, are headlining a show over at Bowery Ballroom on March 23. The group consists of three friends that met when they were kids. They started creating music together in 2000 and just released their fourth studio album, Piramida, in September of this year. This album is significantly more subdued than their previous extremely well received release, but still holds elements of experimentation. Songs like “Black Summer” and “Apples” are pretty good example of this. Regardless of the direction of this album, these guys are worth checking out, grab your tickets at noon today.
Although I mentioned the Shout Out Louds on Wednesday, they are absolutely worth mentioning again. I mean… they made a record completely of ice, ICE I SAY! If that doesn’t deserve two blog posts, I don’t know what does. But in all seriousness, I’m excited for what’s to come from these guys. Their latest single, appropriately titled “Blue Ice“, is brilliant. It interweaves lead singer Adam Olenius’ deep vocals with upbeat tempos and strings. Get tickets at noon today for their shows on March 11 and May 10th at Music Hall of Williamsburg and Webster Hall, respectively.
Grace Potter and the Nocturnals – Ms. Potter is such a talented musician, check her out at the Capitol Theatre on February 23. Tickets go on sale at noon.
Starfucker – Um….well, besides the kick ass name, the group has some kick ass beats too. They announced that they’ll be releasing their upcoming album Miracle Mile, on Feb 19th. Tickets for their March 15th show at Webster Hall can be all yours at noon today.
