Every now and then my pal Gus lets me play dress up and invites me to his amazing Parterre level box at the Metropolitan Opera. Inevitably, I almost...
Crying won't help you and praying won't do you no good, as Robert Plant once sang. Only MOST BUZZED shows of the week can save your soul.
Blooming with new releases from Deerhunter, Vampire Weekend, Daft Punk, and The National, the following weeks consequently boast some of the most buzzed concerts of 2013 and My Social List is here to help bring order to the live-music chaos.
Music fans are welcoming Crossing Brooklyn Ferry and, for that matter, all of festival season to our not-so-humble city this week.
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..."
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.
Buckle into those Grecian sandals and cut-off shorts, ladies and gents; from here on out it's only going to get crazier.
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.
I know you're sick of SXSW disemboweling the city's venues of most of its talent. Fortunately, our concert halls, arenas, DIY art centers and ballroom stages are just like our residents, resilient. We bounce back quick, and bounce back we have done this week.
Public Service Announcement: Residents of Manhattan, Kings, Queens, and Bronx counties, next week is a veritable buzz graveyard in the city's live music venues, as most bands will be headed down to sunny Austin, Texas for a little music festival called SXSW.
In this week's edition, concerts not only buzz, they are rewarded with kitschy faux-awards bestowed by yours truly. I can assure you that I'm at least half as irritating as Seth MacFarlane, and the closest we'll get to a show-tune is the R&B of Autre Ne Veut.
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.
Candlelit dinners? Chocolates? Don't be so generic. Show your loved one that you really care this year with an original gift this Valentine's Day... the gift of live music. We've got a whole bunch of buzzable concerts sure to set hearts a-fluttering.
Should we all just stay in on the off chance something amazing is going to happen on the Internet? NO WAY. Read on and you'll see why.
The Governor's Ball lineup was unveiled last week, giving us all hope that New York City just might be able to host a festival on par with Coachella or Bonnaroo. Fortunately, you won't have to wait until June to catch a glut of buzzed artists.
Coldest week of January on record be damned, there's a host of shows to attend for concert-goers from all walks of life. So zip up that bubble jacket (please don't wear a bubble jacket), and get ready for another week of quality music in New York.
