I've seen the dreamy Sondre Lerche quite a few times, but this Williamsburg show felt different than any show I'd seen of his before. Usually solo on guitar, this modern-day crooner is consistently mesmerizing to watch. This time though, he had a backing band, and I saw him go from softly strumming to rocking out! The band made all the difference in his energy and performance. Watching Sondre alone gives the audience warm fuzzies, but watching him with a band makes you want to shake your thang more than usual.

Yes, Explosions' long-drawn-out epic instrumentals can do that to you whether you like it or not. Read More

As blue strobe lights flashed and the loud speakers played thrash music from an anonymous metal band, The Mountain Goats stepped onto the stage for their second of three sold out shows at New York City’s Bowery Ballroom. For the uninitiated, this incongruous introduction might prove alarming, but veteran fans will know that the band have made a tradition of introducing themselves in this ostentatious way. This hyperliterate indie rock band—which occasionally adds and subtracts members from many locales—centers around California-born vocalist/guitarist John Darnielle. Read More
