I’m writing this to you while trying to piece together the past few days and simultaneously fighting off a killer headache. SXSW is complete chaos in the best of ways, with thousands joining together to endure 16 hour days and the inevitable loss of your personal belongs/sobriety. For me it was a chance to be completely immersed in concerts surrounded by my favorite people in music all while wearing shorts. [...]

This review was written by Mart Z, who will be to covering shows in NYC for us from time to time. Inc. played an album release show for their debut full-length, No World, at Le Poisson Rouge on Tuesday Night. With a steady stream of fog wafting around them, the live music of this L.A.-based act is something even more special. Brothers Daniel and Andrew Aged have crafted a style [...]

The Friday before Halloween, I was lucky enough to get the chance to go out (in costume as Diana Ross) to see M83 and Active Child play the Black Cat. They’ve put out two of my favorite albums of the year, so the opportunity to see them on the same stage was not to be passed up. I’d seen Active Child once before, on his smaller tour with Com Truise, [...]

Last night I was fortunate enough to catch RJD2 at the 9:30 Club here in DC, along with his newest collaborative effort with Aaron Livingston, Icebird (opening for yourself, how badass is that?). A not quite sold out, but still packed crowd made it out in the rain to bask in the music. With RJD2‘s electronic past, and a name like Icebird it’s easy to conjure up an image of [...]

Admittedly, I’ve lost track of RJD2 since Since We Last Spoke (irony, anyone?), but before that I was seriously obsessed and am beyond excited to get the chance to see him live tomorrow night here in DC. He’s performing as himself, and also as a part of the collaborative effort Icebird. Grab tickets here, I’ll let you know how it goes.

Beachey wrote this one up for us. – Toro Y Moi and Unknown Mortal Orchestra stopped by Minneapolis last Sunday for a fantastic night of music. Both bands lived up to their hype, but UMO had a hold on the audience that Toro was just beginning to grasp. The Portland trio had relentless energy and surprisingly clean and tight chops for a band that lets fuzz and crackle dominate their [...]

On a tour spanning most of the states, DID favorite Active Child stopped in Minneapolis last Saturday to deliver a wonderfully enchanting set. Pat Grossi’s trio brought songs from his recent release to 7th Street Entry with great command and expression, and the group’s sound perfectly filled the space. It was great to see how these guys could bring a primarily electronic-based studio production to life through great musicianship and [...]
