NYC Weekly Show Highlights: 06/12 - 06/17

Lay down your souls to the gods rock 'n' roll. This week is going to be a good one. 

Tuesday, 06/12/18: QWAM, Harvey Garbage & The Flowers, Grace Kelly All Day, Virginia & The Woolves at Alphaville

If you like rock 'n' roll, head out on a Tuesday and find a new favorite band at this show. Maybe (probably) all of them. There's something for everyone and I mean it sincerely as there are hooks, riffs, bangers, janglers and all in between.

Wednesday, 06/13/18: A Deer A Horse, No Men, The Mad Doctors, Ted's Dead at Secret Project Robot

If you missed Chicago's No Men when they hurtled through our little city last year, now's your chance to rectify that mistake. They are easily one of the most fun live bands I have seen and they're heavy and driving as fuck. With a bill that's like getting hit by a sledgehammer, if you're into that sort of thing.

Thursday, 06/14/18: Low Anxiety, Big Bill, Huh, World's Greatest Detective at Alphaville

A dash of weird punk and rock 'n' roll midweek to roll you straight into a big ass weekend and this doesn't disappoint at all. Big Bill bring Austin's finest skronk to the table and you better know the locals are gunna bring their Louisvilles to slug out big fucking tunes.

Friday, 06/15/18: Stuyedeyed, Grim Streaker, Ghost Funk Orchestra at Mercury Lounge

A Neapolitan of heavy shit: three tastes that taste great together. A headbangin' good time from start to finish that spans all the ways you can groove and move. Not to be missed for any reason.

Saturday, 06/16/18: The Sharp Shadows, The Royal They, World's Greatest Detective, Shelter Dogs at Pet Rescue

Shout at the top of your lungs till you're red in the face and full of fond memories. Four bands of anthemic animosity too awesome to hold in a cage so they're unleashed upon an unsuspecting Saturday at this-here Pet Rescue.

Sunday, 06/17/18: Eat Lead, Sex Scenes, Dog Shepherd at St. Vitus

Usually Sunday is a come-down for the week but this week, it's just jetting full-throttle into the punk underbelly of the scuzzy city streets. Sex Scenes is in town showing how the midwest fucks with fuzz so light up with em.


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.
