This week, as I’m sure you’ll be surprised to hear, there are plenty of shows worth blowing your ears out for. Our picks include a brand new project from a longtime blues punk devotee, The Dark Prince of Garage, and sugar-sweet disco that’s not afraid to hit sour notes. All that and more below this here line.
Shows: Grooms, Screech Punk, Natural Highs, and More
Yeah, yeah we’re well aware there’s a holiday weekend– for some of us, anyway– coming up soon, but all the better to pack in some legit shows this week before you pack your bags. Besides, just face it, you’re probably doing something not that far from grilling/hanging/sun-roasting/eating/boozing/eating/boozing and acting generally like a beached whale on a bender this weekend anyway, so might as well sweat out the last of your bikini blob at these bangers.
Week in Film: Dada Brunch, Florida in Celluloid Form, and More
Have we got an interesting crew for you this week! Our lineup is a regular emotional rollercoaster, from feel-horrible humanitarian films about sex slaves and child soldiers all the way to feel-sick, total-garbage cult Martial Arts-action films. Don’t try to swallow them all at once is our only advice.
Castle Of Spices: Music, Photography, and Brooklyn’s Most Terrifying Wolf Person
Famous Swords, a Brooklyn-based art collective founded by Alyse Lamb (of EULA) and Chris Mulligan, is gathering a regular army of mostly Brooklyn-based musicians, performance artists, and visual artists that will descend upon Glasslands tomorrow. Castle of Spices features a varied lineup including Short Nerve (a weird jammy outfit featuring Greg Saunier of Deerfhoof on drums), Adam Schatz (also of NYC indie poppers Landlady), Andra (singer-songwriter), and EULA.
