NYC Weekly Show Highlights: 03/12 - 03/19

As all the little lumpkins make their way outta town for a little festival in Texas, NYC still rages on in their stead. Keep fighting the good fight, y'all.

Monday, 03/12/18: Habibi (EP Release) with Innov Gnawa at National Sawdust

Brooklyn girl gang Habibi releases their new and highly anticipated EP Cardamom Garden. Excellent riffs expected. 

Tuesday, 03/13/18: Two Minutes To Late Night Live Taping at St. Vitus

New York's best metal-themed late-night show is shooting their first season so get thee to Vitus to rock out to Mutoid Man (their house band) and get your chuckles in for a very meager price. Be apart of history.

Wednesday, 03/14/18: The Rizzos, Dan Koshute, Office Culture at Sunnyvale

Dan Koshute is blowing in from Pittsburgh and the dude belts out seriously evocative rock 'n' roll that is wonderfully stripped-down and earnest. Tears the house down every time. And you know The Rizzos are always a crowd fave.

Thursday, 03/15/18: Frankie Rose, Hideout, Russian Baths (EP Release) at Elsewhere

Russian Baths are celebrating their noise punk overture and there's no better way than to get loaded and see em in a real nice-sounding room and totally FUCK SHIT UP. Or whatever.

Friday, 03/16/18: Language, Glass Slipper, Inspiraling at Our Wicked Lady

Another one I'm playing (because I can't just sit still) but really stoked to finally catch Language. They sent me their record and it's fucking weird and gross and very cool. So I'm going for them (and I guess I'll play too).

Saturday, 03/17/18: Sleepies, Essi, Dad, Good Dog Nigel at Sunnyvale

This one takes the cake for a show of bands with misleading names as all of these bands rip. Don't be lulled into a false sense of security because this is a massive one.

Sunday, 03/18/18: Fat Heaven, Drug Pizza, The Dewars, Kew at Mercury Lounge

This show is actually driving the rents near Mercury Lounge down as snobbed-out yuppies are already complaining about the noise of this one before the band has even showed up. It will be big.


Greg Hanson lives in Brooklyn and plays in a bunch of bands, founded King Pizza Records, and goes to a bunch of shows. This might qualify him to write about these shows for Blood Sweat and Beers.
