We made it through the winter (deep exhale) and now Spring has finally arrived, which means more shows for all of us. Set your musical calendar with our handy Pancake Picks below.
Aaron Lee Tasjan @ Mercury Lounge – One of the premier singer/songwriters today, Tasjan will bring his gritty indie-rock to the small room for our enjoyment.
At The Drive In @ T5 – Okay we know the show is sold-out, but there’s tickets to be had on the secondary market for cheap. But here’s a tip – If you’re smart and really want to see the gig, just get there in-line well before doors, as T5 always has some (very-limited) tickets at the door for each show.
The Tangiers Blues Band @ Brooklyn Bowl -The blues done right and your chance to see legendary photographer, Danny Clinch, play a mean harmonica.
Let’s Eat Grandma @ Rough Trade – Fresh off of a sizzling SXSW, this British Psych-pop duo will be something you’ll want to tell your friends about after, so don’t miss out.
Dopapod @ Brooklyn B0wl – The first night of a three night run for Dopapod starts Thursday at Brooklyn Bowl – meaning there’s no excuse to see the progressive-dance-rock band live and up close.
Fishbone @ Gramercy – These cats have been doing their ska-punk-funk-rock thing before most of you were born (’79), which makes this a no-brainer if you’re a pure music fan.
Foxygen & Sunflower Bean @ T5 – Foxygen kinda threw us a curveball with their last album that is ripe with horns, and things we may not be used to, but that doesn’t mean it’s not good. What we do know is their live shows, are not to be missed, especially when you have Sunflower Bean opening.
Shiny Toy Guns & Savoir Adore @ Webster Hall – Catch a fabulous bill with local faves Savoir Adore and then stay for the incredible Shiny Toy Guns.
The Knocks @ Terminal 5 – The Knocks will bring their dance party to T5, which as of late, has been raking in some big shows.
Planned Parenthood Benefit w/ New Myths & More @ Knitting Factory – In these days, benefits like these are more and more important, because you know, the so-called president and his cronies are chumps – support essential services (including cancer screenings!) by rocking out with New Myths and a bevy of other righteous bands.
