A Brass Band, a Wunderkind, and the Son of Simon

Time again for Good Shows, our weekly roundup of what’s good in live music.


While Williamsburg outfit Beverly was recording its debut album Careers in 2013, the band was comprised of Frankie Rose (Vivan Girls, Crystal Stilts) and Drew Citron (Avan Lava). The album was released in early July, at which point Rose left and Citron took the reins, adding Scott Rosenthal and Jamie Ingalls. With Rose gone, the vocal harmonies are missing, but Rosenthal on bass adds a punk-rock element to Beverly’s noise-pop songs. Rough Trade NYC, Williamsburg, Friday, August 15 at 9 p.m., tickets $10

When we first brought news of SHWICK, details were still a little murky. But today, the “makers market” made some big announcements: the opening date has moved from August 23 to October 11, and though the market originally expected 40 or so vendors, the response to its sticker and poster campaign has been so overwhelming that it’s now touting more than 100 vendors.

10 Days In, Greenpoint Fish & Lobster Co. Is Off the Hook

Even at 3 p.m. on a Friday afternoon, Greenpoint Fish & Lobster Co. is packed like a sardine can (the salmon spot was slammed mid-week, too). So it’s no surprise that fifth-generation fishmonger Vinny Milburn and former Pianos booker Adam Geringer-Dunn, co-owners of Greenpoint’s newest fish market and lobster joint, are starting to crack up. After the first ten days, when many restaurants are already floundering, this corner spot is making waves. We fought off the steady stream of customers to see how things are going.
