Live Shows




PHOTOS: Me Not You live at Brooklyn Steel

The New York duo Me Not You of Nikki Taylor and Eric Zeiler arose from the pop trio Little Daylight with a brand of synth pop that is more glitter and heavier on guitars. That makes them a good fit for electronic music legend Gary Numan whom they opened for[…]

PHOTOS: Argonaut & Wasp at Alphaville

Great music alone doesn’t make a great show and a great venue like Brooklyn’s Alphaville certainly helps yet it is great performers who ensure a fantastic experience. In short, Argonaut & Wasp were freakin’ awesome when they played Alphaville BK to an appreciative audience of friends and old and new[…]

Dream Wife live at Baby’s All Right

About a year ago Dream Wife, a trio from Iceland and the U.K., was maybe my most exciting discovery at Iceland Airwaves. We couldn’t make it to Reykjavík this year, but Rakel (vocals), Alice (guitar) and Bella (bass) came over to Brooklyn for a one off show at Baby’s All Right. If anything, their show became even wilder and had a special moment, when singer Rakel asked the women in the audience to “take their space” in the front rows. Then they performed “Somebody”, a song that resonates strongly with the current news: “You were a cute girl standing backstage // It was bound to happen.”

PHOTOS: High Waisted Live at Rough Trade

When we recently asked High Waisted about their favorite decade in our Q&A feature, Jessica Dye (vocals, guitar) answered: “The 1970s in London so I could be best friends with Viv Albertine, Chrissie Hynde and Vivienne Westwood and shop at Sex. I’d play punk rock and wear Dr Martens and[…]

PHOTOS: Statues of Liberty Live at Arlene’s Grocery

It started out very romantic, how we happen to know about Statues of Liberty and became avid fans in the process: in the summer of 2007, we were invited to celebrate the wedding of a friend in Upstate New York. Said friend, a musician, married another musician and the festivities[…]

PHOTOS: Dead Leaf Echo at Knitting Factory (Album Release)

Today, I came across the posting of a musician friend who asked her friends/fans “of the bands/artists you’ve seen live, who put on the best show and why?” and the conversation she had initiated on her ‘timeline’ were very well all about (super)stars shows like Björk or Depeche Mode and White[…]
