After a long absence, in which I amassed both a busy day job and a broken wrist, your weekly run-down of concerts that are worth a damn has returned to FreeWilly. Now you can be generally clued into the Brooklyn music scene and of interest to talk to at parties. You’re welcome.
3/25 – After appearing as second banana at a lot of big area shows, most recently The Pogues at Terminal 5, The So So Glos get a headlining spot at 285 Kent Avenue. Sundelles, Snakes Say Hiss and Teen Witch also play. Tickets are only $7 and all ages are welcome (cool?).
3/25 – J Mascis from Dinosaur Jr. is bringing his epic hair and rock ‘n roll skills to Music Hall of Williamsburg to promote the release of his solo, “Several Shades of Why”. Kurt Vile (who has a pretty killer set of locks himself) & the Violators, who just played around at SXSW, are opening. Head to CraigsList for tickets.
3/25 – Thurston Moore plays The Stone, a non-profit venue dedicated “to the experimental and avant-garde”, at 8:00p. Tickets are only $10 and available at the door prior to the show.
3/25 – The Drums continue to play every show they can get their grubby mits on tonight at Tribeca Grand Hotel. Go party down trust fund hipster-style for free with RSVP to email@example.com. With openers Big Troubles and a DJ set from Patrick Cleandenim.
