Concert Review: Halfnoise Shows A Good Crowd Equals A Great Show

If Wes Anderson and Stan Lee created a music artist, I am CONVINCED it would be Halfnoise. There is something incredibly Life Aquatic/ Moonrise Kingdom to his vibe that goes beyond the red-skipper hat he dons, but there is also something inherently vibrant/ heroic to his sound. It is as if you are a Royal… Continue reading Concert Review: Halfnoise Shows A Good Crowd Equals A Great Show

Concert Review: Mikey Mike Is One of The Most Exciting Acts At Highline

I do not know what I was expecting with Mikey Mike, but it was not what I got at his Highline Ballroom show. He feels part Messianic/ part Millennial in his messages of “Doin Me” while also being mindful of others.

Concert Review: Angus And Julia Stone Are Music Yoga At Warsaw

When Angus and Julia Stone played Warsaw NYC, I could have snuggled into my feelings like they were a stack of warm blankets on a cold day.

Concert Review: Dream Wife Are Bad Bitches At Baby’s All Right

Dream Wife made their NYC debut with one single command: All Bad Bitches To The Front! Lead singer Alice Go repeated the phrase so much, I felt compelled to go (lol!).

Concert Review: Soccer Mommy Feel Like Music Therapy

I reviewed Soccer Mommy’s record, Collection, and thought it to be as thoughtful as their performance at Baby’s All Right. Brooklyn felt like the perfect domain for them to play tracks about living inside your head.
