Nov 02, 2009 Live The Decemberists

UCLA’s Royce Hall is a beautiful little venue. Ornately decorated, acoustically lush and comfortable in size, the theater lends itself well to all manner of performances. And on October 19th, Portland’s The Decemberists brought their fun blur of theater and rock show to the hall.

Oct 30, 2009 Live Laura Marling

While former cohorts Noah and the Whale are busy with a grand launch of their new album/movie project, London singer-songwriter Laura Marling has opted to quietly debut songs from her own forthcoming sophomore album, due in early 2010, in a series of intimate concerts in small East coast U.S. venues this fall. Two extraneous details threatened to ruin the mood on this particular night at World Café Live in Philadelphia.

Oct 29, 2009 Live Florence and the Machine

It’s no surprise that Florence and the Machine’s first proper New York show sold out quickly, as this performance was way overdue but very much worth the wait.

Oct 29, 2009 Live CMJ 2009 Day Five

“It’s early for everyone, I think,” said Jesse Lortz, guitarist and vocalist for Seattle’s the Dutchess and the Duke at 2-something on Saturday afternoon. After almost a straight week of shows and parties, it was about time for CMJ-goers’ collective hangover to kick in if it hadn’t already.

This process of thoughtless artistic consumption becomes significantly more difficult when that artist is Daniel Johnston.

Oct 26, 2009 Live CMJ 2009 Day Four

My first Friday show, self-titled magazine and Pop Mart Media’s showcase at (Le) Poisson Rouge, was one with very high expectations, as all four artists on the bill had been overly hyped in the weeks leading up to CMJ.

Oct 26, 2009 Live CMJ 2009 Day Three

After spending a couple days going back and forth from Brooklyn to Manhattan, I took it easy on Thursday and planted myself in Williamsburg to save energy for the last two days of CMJ. I stopped by the DFA showcase at Brooklyn Bowl hoping to see YACHT, but left after learning the band wasn’t going on until after 11 p.m.

Oct 26, 2009 Live CMJ 2009 Day Two

Looking back on this week so far, I realized that the majority of the music I’ve seen has been near one of two extremes: folk, or electronics-fueled rock or pop. London outfit Mumford & Sons, who played Wednesday evening, was no exception (it won’t be the last folk band I see this week, either).

Oct 23, 2009 Live Choir of Young Believers

As any music snob will readily admit, one of the greatest joys in life is catching a little known band before they break big. Pardon me for braggingas I presumptuously swirl my drink and haughtily raise my nose skywardbut when Choir of Young Believers claw their way out of obscurity and into larger venues, you’re in for quite a treat.
