It was nearly three months ago when 22-year-old Elliot Rodgers posted a frightening video on YouTube detailing his plan to “annihilate” women before viciously murdering two female students, four male students, and ultimately himself, at the University of California at Santa Barbara on May 23. The tragedy ignited national debates over gun control and mental health in the U.S. But the bulk of the discussion, facilitated by women under the ... Read More

Usually music festival season comes with a roller coaster of emotions: first, excitement to finally see who made the line-up, then hope that maybe I’ll actually make it this year, then the crushing, heartbreaking reality when I realize I can’t afford it (unless I don’t do anything else for the next three months).
Luckily for those of you in LA, a super-affordable festival is headed your way. Brokechella, an arts and music festival ... Read More

We're excited to announce that we're curating yet another night of lady-powered music at Brooklyn Night Bazaar!
Last December, we brought JD Samson's dance-rock outfit MEN to Brooklyn Night Bazaar's enormous warehouse space in Williamsburg. This year, come on by the Bazaar's new, slightly more intimate space in Greenpoint for a night of food, drink, shopping, table tennis, mini golf, and of course, a bomb-ass free show featuring SISU, Lizzo, U.S. ...

A few days before kicking off a North American tour in support of their fifth album Tales of a Grass Widow with a sold-out show at New York City’s Webster Hall, I sat down with CocoRosie’s Bianca Casady. Ethereal, whimsical, haunting, and sometimes uncomfortable, there is no end to the adjectives used to describe the band’s particular brand of music. Sometimes classified as freak-folk, sisters Sierra and Bianca incorporate everything from ... Read More

Who decided that summer was music festival season? Walking around in boiling heat... surrounded by the smell of hot garbage and stale beer...just trying to find your friends in a sea of high-waisted denim cutoffs...I see nary a positive! Fortunately, the one and only Tinderbox Music Festival had the bright idea to host their shindig in the middle of fall! *cue confetti*
The fest will be taking over the Music Hall of Williamsburg on Friday, November 1st, 2013 and ... Read More
As soon as Natasha Khan, or as everyone knows her, Bat for Lashes, took the stage at Webster Hall last Friday night, decked out in a multi-patterned flared jumpsuit, you knew you were in for a treat. As the band stood slightly behind her, Natasha had all the space she needed to sing, sway, and dance. She slinked across the stage, her microphone in hand, belting her loud and powerful voice to the packed shimmying room. At some point, someone threw a lily on the ... Read More

I was lucky enough to catch the sold-out Little Boots show this past Tuesday night (in my business clothes, no less) , and lemme tell ya, good night, nurse! I strolled into the Music Hall of Williamsburg just as first opening band, Feathers, took the stage. All hail Feathers! They played the hell out of the best songs on their debut album, If All Now Here, filling the hall with their ominous, dance-y sound. I didn’t want it to end, and my only complaint ... Read More

Aside from his foxiness, gangly Kiwi singer Willy Moon has a lot going for him. Apple recently used his rowdy, retro song “Yeah Yeah” for its new ad (the one with all the bouncing iPods), and it caught the earballs of countless listeners. So is there more to this neo-rockabilly pop star than one catchy song and some very well-tailored suits? We’re happy to report that we've seen him live, and he is, in fact, legit.Moon played at Piano’s ... Read More

This past summer, Fleetwood Mac warmed our collective heart cockles when they announced that they’d be reuniting for a smattering of shows in 2013. The promise of a few shows was enough to set Fleetwood Mac fans a-tweaking, but the reality has turned out to be even sweeter. The band will tour a full 34 cities this go-around, beginning April 4th in Columbus, Ohio.
It’s only been three years since the band last hit the road, but ... Read More
