Do Hold Your Breath For Mac DeMarco’s New ‘Mini-LP,’ Another One

If you had a chance to swing by Our Wicked Lady in the hours before their grand opening then maybe you found the loopy singer-songwriter Mac DeMarco throwin down dogs whilst a couple of his new tracks bumped on the boom box. Or perhaps you were stuck behind double-paned office windows, miles from anything resembling summer or fun, let alone new music. Stir not in jealousy, though, for the release of 25-year-old Rockaway resident Mac Demarco’s new “mini-LP” is just on the horizon.

Richard Kern’s New Book, Exhibit Is a ’90s Grunge Version of a Barbershop Lookbook

unnamedYou know those cheeseball lookbooks you see at places like Supercuts, that show you how you’d look with a bowl cut? Well, none other other than photographer Richard Kern, the thinking man’s Terry Richardson, has teamed up with an uber-hip Williamsburg hair salon to make a grunge- and porn-inspired version of them.

FKA Twigs at Webster Hall

FKA Twigs is a badass British chick with sex and sass to spare. To borrow a phrase from a fellow badass, Twigs is on the edge of glory; her last album, EP2, earned rave reviews, and she has an album called LP1 coming out mid-August. Her voice is twinkling, sparse and precise. This is going to be a weird show. Webster Hall, East Village, Wednesday, August 6 at 8 p.m.

The LOT LIC Music & Film Series, an eight-week summer party, makes its debut in Long Island City this weekend. It’s a free event, with music on Saturdays and film on Thursdays.

Lauryn Hill Killing Us Softly With Her Ticket Prices; Can’t Fight Veruca Salt

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


Take a trip back to the ’90s with grunge-rock babes Veruca Salt. The band has reunited to tour for the first time since 1995, but just because they’ve been off the map doesn’t mean they’re out of energy. They’re still wrecking eardrums left and right. Music Hall of Williamsburg, Friday, July 25 at 9 p.m., tickets $25

Titus, Because, Who Else? Plus a Little Band Called De La Soul

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

There’s almost nothing left for us to say about Titus Andronicus. Except that the show is free. And also this wisdom, dear hipster children, via Droz in PCU: “You’re wearing the shirt of the band you’re going to see? Don’t be that guy.” Brooklyn Night Bazaar, Greenpoint, Friday, July 11 at 8 p.m., free

Kaiser Chiefs at Webster Hall

This Leeds-based indie rock outfit have hopped the pond to promote their new album, Education, Education, Education & War. The band is famous for rocking festivals with big stage sets and light shows, pulling every stunt short of a miniature Stonehenge. Their most recognizable single is probably “Ruby,” released back in ’07. Bottom line, you will not be bored at this show.

tUnE-yArDs at Webster Hall

Merrill Garbus heads up tUnE-yArDs, a four-piece project that defies genre: it’s pop, it’s rock, it’s funk, it’s jazz. Garbus, a former puppeteer, uses foot pedals to loop her voice and percussion during shows. The group’s latest album, “Nikki Nack,” made a big splash when it landed this spring, though the band’s been making records since ’09. They perform Sunday and Monday nights at Webster Hall.
