New Years Eve Rocking Holy Cow Market

It’s that time of year–best of lists, holiday gifts exchanged, snow. Now, it’s time to usher out the burning tire heap that has been 2016 for 2017 with its fearsome political climate. But there is a reprieve from jumping from frying pan to fire: New Years Eve. This magical night is neither fully last year […]

Fullbloods, Beat Bums, Youth Pool @ The Brick

This Saturday, Fullbloods, Youth Pool, and Beat Bums will play The Brick. Each band strikes a different chord aesthetically, and together they represent a good smattering of indie rock. Fullbloods’ surfy pop is catchy and laid back; Youth Pool envelopes their listeners in waves of sound; Beat Bums collide sounds to create something totally unclassifiable. […]

More Local at Middle of The Map

Middle of The Map is gathering steam. Starting with the ideas of Fred Armisen, the yearly fest is off to a great start. And tomorrow, Middle of The Map’s music portion begins. I’ve written about national acts to check out–Gallant, Vince Staples–, and I’ve written about some local bands to catch (here and here). That […]

Record Store Day Cometh

I know it’s over a month until Record Store Day descends from on high and graces us with all the exclusive ear candy we can handle.

The Fog, Youth Pool, and Friends @ Mills Record Company

Tomorrow, Shuttlecock Magazine and Mills Record Company will host the concert to start 2016. Ranging from basement punk to rap, from shoegaze to guitar pop, this in store will definitely warm up this cold January. Killakee Kat makes some unforgiving punk. Sounding like a grimy version of The Locusts mixed with a quicker Menace Beach, […]

Cloakroom, Bummer, the author & the illustrator, Youth Pool @ Davey’s Uptown

This Wednesday, Davey’s Uptown will host an eclectic show boasting some pretty exciting rock. Moving from Youth Pools‘ spacey indie rock (think The Smiths meet Wild Nothing) to BUMMER‘s neanderthalic and sludge-ridden onslaughts, from the author & the illustrator‘s disjunctive and brooding mathrock to Cloakroom‘s haze-core (think Nirvana covering Depeche Mode), the show will feature […]
