Everything in the city is starting to show life and that includes our beloved music scene. Let us help you sort your musical week with our Pancake Picks below.
The Tangiers Blues Band @ Brooklyn Bowl – This fantastic band is known for their blues stomping jams and will be a fun show early in the week.
Fat White Family @ LPR – Fat White Family is known for their rowdy and sometimes lewd shows, but what stands out is their music and with their latest LP, “Songs For Our Mothers,” they bring the apocalyptic sludge-rock to the next level.
Sticky Fingers @ MHOW – This versatile Aussie rock group is such a good time as they cater for the pure music lover. With hints of reggae and world music, it’s also a very danceable show that you shouldn’t miss.
Frightened Rabbit @ Terminal 5 – This Scottish indie-rock band is known for their impressive hooks and lyricism and will showcase their newest album “Painting Of A Panic Attack,” which was released in April.
Max Frost @ Mercury Lounge – Start your Friday at Mercury Lounge for the early show featuring one of the best singer/songwriters out there. Groove out to his amazing voice and soul influence, and it still leaves you room to get your groove on later in the LES.
Peter Wolf @ Bowery Ballroom – Peter Wolf is best known for the hits he had with J. Geils Band and their incredible live performances. Expect to hear the extremely catchy hooks of “Centerfold,” “Freeze Frame,” “Musta Got Lost” and “Love Stinks.”
Beverly @ Rough Trade – When there’s an opportunity to see a FREE show like this in a small venue, one must do so. Although you don’t even need to get a wristband for this, we advise to get there really early for the 2pm show to queue up for the grungy and catchy pop hooks that Beverly brings, it will “sell out.”
Woods @ MHOW – Brooklyn band Woods, brings the perfect mix of folk-rock and Americana to their songs, creating a fantastic chill-vibe that will go over well in Williamsburg.
Black Lips @ Bowery Ballroom – End your week right with some garage infused punk before you go back to the cubicle for the week.
