To borrow a tagline courtesy of Anheuser-Busch's ex frat-bro marketing crack-squad: Here. We. Go. With temps set to broil and Governor's Ball's -- a ticking ego-time bomb loaded with love-to-hate icons like Axl Rose and Kanye West -- about to detonate, summer's lumbering...

While this week, with the last-minute cancellation of GoogaMooga on Sunday, stumbled out of the gate like a long-shot Preakness pony, the live music gods are unsurprisingly smiling upon their holy land again, offering great concerts everywhere from Jersey to the J train....

How's that Downtown Music Festival hangover feeling? Eyes still bloodshot? Breath still flammable? Skull still buzzing like a game of Operation every time your brain bumps it? Well, better refill the Excedrin stockpile, because this weekend Googa Mooga hits NYC with a merciless Kool-Aid commercial-colored blast of...

Summer blockbusters aren't just for popcorn addicts and Marvel fan boys anymore. In fact, they aren't even limited to the silver screen. Instead the mega media-release has expanded to include YouTube sensations, Twitter beefs, and, of course, the ancient and increasingly uncool LP, for...

God, whichever one you worship, is in the numbers. Probability, not gravity, turns the Earth on its access and it's the law of averages, not NATO, which governs the whole of humanity day in and day out. Thus it comes as little surprise...

Even with the Coachella fun/sun loving officially dominating blogosphere bandwidths from Milwaukee to Moscow, our fair city's music scene remains relatively un-phased, tipping its hat and stocking its venues, as if to say "anything you can do..." So keep your Sublime t-shirts, thong-kinis,...

It's Masters week here at the My Social List Clubhouse. The legends are teeing off, bogeys are back on the sidewalks, and, with the weather warming, New York City's live music scene has returned to, ahem, full swing. Across the tri-state, beach bum...

Now I'm not trying to jinx anything nor further disparage that poor, surely remorseful rodent undergoing rigorous psychological therapy just a few hours down Interstate 80, but it appears that spring may (knocking on wood and faux-wood surfaces alike here) finally have arrived;...

Have heart, New York City, for a week after SXSW packed up its barbeque sauce and sweat-slathered stages, the live music hangover has finally lifted. Thanks to appearances from major indie-acts with new albums on the way, such as Vampire Weekend, rock 'n' roll legends, like Nick Cave, and half...

Whether you were an attendee, a wannabe or a detractor (I'm a little of all three,) by now, I'm sure you're sick of hearing about the cultural behemoth that is SXSW. And I know, unequivocally, that you're sick of the festival disemboweling...

I'm going to do something a bit different this week. I'm going to admit defeat. Save for a handful of shows, New York is basically a buzz graveyard this week. A little festival called SXSW has tapped the city of most of its...

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT: Residents of Manhattan, Kings, Queens, Bronx and Richmond counties (and hell, Hudson, Nassau and Westchester too,) next week is a veritable buzz graveyard in the city's live music venues, as most bands (and myself) will be headed down to...

We got our first taste of summer today, concert-goers. Put away your long jackets, scarves and iPhone gloves, because Celebrate Brooklyn announced the first show in their always incredible summer series at the Prospect Park Bandshell today, and it's hot enough to melt away any truck-exhaust encrusted sludge that's left...

Seldom does a noted purveyor of alcohol-and-live music-fueled debauchery, such as myself, applaud those who choose to stay in on a weekend night. However, as I stood stage right at 285 Kent on Saturday night, eagerly anticipating another high-energy set from Parquet Courts,...

Coldest week of January on record be damned, there's a host of buzzable shows to attend for concert-goers from all walks of life; the devil-horn raising, the head bobbing, the glo-stick wielding and the passive arm-folders. We've got 'em all for you...
