The Neighbourhood make up for slow openers in Brooklyn with an exciting show of confidence and smooth vocals

Photos by Pamela Wang, words by Ava Scott

People must have waited hours to get in the venue first, hoping to get those center barricade spots to see The Neighbourhood. Though I was an hour early to the venue, I was one of the last people to enter when doors opened at 7:00pm. I wonder if those people who had waited all day for their perfect places were disappointed that they had to wait there through not one but two opening acts before The Neighbourhood came on.

Cherub bring infectious sounds and top-notch lighting to The Westcott in Syracuse

If you thought that there was nothing better than taking it easy on a Sunday night, you were terribly mistaken. On September 23rd at The Westcott Theater in Syracuse, NY, electro-indie duo Cherub were doing the opposite of taking it easy, and made it feel like the party of the year for everyone who said “screw you” to homework and catching up on sleep.

Slow Hollows, Crosslegged and Stevie Wolf bring soulful, rich sounds to Brooklyn’s Baby’s All Right

Drained after a long week, I sat on the bus thinking about the next four hours and what was to come. The facts: Slow Hollows was playing at Baby’s All Right in Brooklyn, NY. Doors, 8 pm. On the bus, the silence was peaceful yet deafening. Just me, a woman in her mid-thirties or early forties, and the bus driver. 7 pm on a Friday night. En route, a wave of nerves hit me. I had not been to a show in over two months. The silence persisted and continued to linger up until I arrived at the venue. I was home. Continue Reading

At Madison Square Garden, Childish Gambino’s “last tour” felt more like a new beginning

We talk about Donald Glover as an actor, a comedian, a director and a rapper, but I’d argue there’s more than that. Continue Reading

The National’s epic 2-day Forest Hills fest with Jason Isbell, Cat Power, Future Islands and more is quickly approaching

In April, The National announced they’d be returning to Queens this summer to play two shows at Forest Hills Stadium. In a statement, guitarist Aaron Dressner said their Forest Hills show in 2017 was “one of our favorite shows in the history of the band,” and this year’s run is set to be bigger and better, with a stacked lineup both nights.

With doors set to open at 2:00 pm both days, the shows are meant to be more of a festival than a concert, with a lineup including Jason Isbell And The 400 Unit, Future Islands, Cat Power, Cigarettes After Sex, Phoebe Bridgers, U.S. Girls, Bully, and Adia Victoria. The National has also partnered with PLUS1 to donate one dollar of every ticket sold to the Brownsville Community Culinary Center.

The National’s shows are epic and emotional. Matt Berninger, typically with wine in hand, holds nothing back as he belts out his emotional lyrics. Typically, he ventures into the crowd for a song or two also. The band is also known to bring guests on-stage for songs (they played “I Need My Girl” with Maggie Rogers when we saw them last at Boston Calling for example) and with a curated lineup of friends and bands they like, expected lots of collaborative singalongs.

There’s no word yet on the sets the band will play both nights and what else is planned for the exciting weekend. They’ve been playing lots of music from Boxer recently to celebrate the ten year anniversary (notably in Brussels to record a live version of the record in April) so expect some songs from that, plus newer music as well.

Tickets and more information about the two-day There’s No Leaving New York festival can be found at www.americanmary.com.
