Niall Connolly lands 2 month Friday Residency at Rockwood

A pillar of the NYC folk scene, Cork born Niall Connolly landed a Friday residency at Rockwood Music Hall which began on June 7th and will extend for not one but two months until July 19th. Recently returned from a series of gigs in Europe, Connolly released his 6th album in March, which combine his signature quality lyrics with soaring melodies and high energy delivery. See the video for single 'Samurai' below, and don't miss the opportunity to see him live at Rockwood in the next couple of months.

NYC folk rockers Porches travel to Europe

It’s a good thing that Porches.' name is in plural form, as there are two distinct sides of this New York based band - recorded one and the live experience. On record, lead singer/songwriter, Aaron Maine makes music that flows as organically as water in a stream. With the jangly tone of his Danelectro re-issue paired with his 20-something baritone voice, Maine transcends musical boundaries that many of his contemporaries would never dare cross. Without fear of being labeled unoriginal, Maine’s approach is simple: pairing relatable, crushing lyrics about cigarettes and sweaty summer nights with some of the most satisfying minor to major chord changes in the “indie” scene to date. On more recent recordings and on tour, Maine is joined by members of the seemingly-everevolving outfit of Porches, including singer/bass player Greta Kline. When Kline and Maine harmonize, they make us yearn for a youth we never had. Porches songs are not all sweet and tame as they might appear on record. The energy expelled at a single Porches show is enough to power a small town or hamlet for at least a week. After playing Shea Stadium last week the band will travel to Europe for a few dates. - Sam Kogon (photo by Heather Craig)

Horns and winds' indie revenge: Bad Credit No Credit

Everyone knows a sexy guitar or bass line when they hear one right? But what about sexy horns and winds? Bad Credit No Credit - one of the more suprising acts to see around NYC - take full advantage of the seductive abilities of trumpet, sax, flute and even clarinet in their latest EP 'The Whole Buffalo.' The alt-rock mess leads with a maddening trumpet solo in 'Rock Hudson't Wristwatch,' and things keep blazing from there, moving from a punk-driven insanity in 'Shit Hits The Fan,' to quieter moments in my favorite track, 'Vampyre Song' (streaming below). This band gives some under appreciated instruments their long-awaited place in front of a rock stage, along with theatrical (in a punky way) screaming female vocals. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)

Seen at The Deli's B.E.A.F.: Beast Patrol

At a packed Cameo Gallery, Beast Patrol headlined on Saturday the Alt Rock stage of our Best of NYC Emerging Artists Fest 2013 (also known as The NYC B.E.A.F.), sharing the stage with Apollo RunSeasick Mama, Teen Girl Scientist Monthly and Vuvuzela). Fronted by Vanessa Bley on vocals and guitar, the trio performs with confidence and precision songs that marry open melodies, rock'n'roll punch, and a dark and tense undercurrent. The band's video for Disbeliever created a remarkable buzz last year, while the one for "Plaster" (streaming below) confirmed this band's potential. With an appeal reminiscent of bands like The Pretenders and late Eurythmics, this is a group that has the potential to be enjoyed by many.

Beast Patrol will perform at Northside on Thursday 06.13 at 2 pm during BMI's Creators Kickoff luncheon at Mable's Smokehouse.

The So So Glos play Northside Fest at Public Assembly 6.14

The Levine brothers, and step brother Zach Staggers who formed the Bay Ridge punk band known as The So So Glos, have have been a staple of the NYC scene for a few years now not only because of their music, but also because of their active involvement in the Brooklyn DIY scene (they were involved in Market Hotel during its brief existence, and are now part of the people behind Shea Stadium). Raging since 1991 (when Alex Levine was only 3 years old) with a self-made band name that mocks overly fake and vain people, they took to the punk genre with ease with their naturally rough turns and vocals. Operating out of Shea Stadium, the band recently self-released a new record on April 23rd titled Blowout. The band is set to play Public Assembly on June 14th as part of the Northside Fest: 1.21 Gigawatts Showcase with Shapes and Le Rug. Listen to “Lost Weekend” from the new record below! – Michael Haskoor (@Tweetskoor)
