Three punky NYC bands at Shea Stadium on 05.05: Big Ups, Dirty Dishes and Washer

Slacking noise lovers shouldn't miss this show at Shea Stadium on 05.05, since it features threee NYC bands with a noisy sound and a slacking attitude. Post-hardcore quartet Big Ups - our Best NYC Emerging Band of 2014 - will headline the bill and kick off a three date north east tour in support of their recent release 'Before a Million Universes.'  Their label mates, slacker rockers Washer will be one of the opening acts; after releasing a split EP with Big Ups in 2014, this past January released their debut album 'Here Comes Washer.' on the bill also noise rock purveyors Dirty Dishes, who recently expanded to a trio (picture) and released a new single in February entitled "All of Me" (streaming) and spent the early spring touring the East coast.





10th Annual St. Johns Bizarre announces stacked lineup

The 10th annual St. Johns Bizarre is coming up with a pretty stacked lineup of varied Portland acts. The nine hour neighborhood festival will be headlined by old school Portlanders Quasi, on their only West Coast appearance for their upcoming tour in support of the repressing of three of their classic LPs. Best new artist Chanti Darling will also soulfully take the stage, along with pop rockers Minden, a nice bit of indie-folk with the Domestics, and the lighthearted garage pop of Patsy's Rats.

The St. Johns Bizarre will also feature over 100 local vendors for their expanded craft fair, the first appearance of Circus Cascadia teaching circus skills like tightrope walking, stilting and clowning, and of course, their locally sponsored beer (and cider!) garden.

Downtown St. Johns will be blocked off from 10am-7pm on May 14th for the free event, in conjuncture with the St. Johns Parade.





Saturday Night Sounds: Kool Stuff Katie - "You Found a Friend"

Back in March, Kool Stuff Katie dropped their indelible sophomore effort, It's Fine. The top notch follow up to their self titled debut holds as a true definitive of the duo's pleasant mashup of garage, pop and indie rock influences.

Saren Oliver's candy sweet vocals and drum pounding pleasantly pair with Shane Blem's chill shred and croon, to result in an infectiously catchy output of rock tinged pop. Their latest to drop off It's Fine, titled "You Found a Friend," premiered in video form yesterday afternoon. The cleanly shot video perfectly matches the song's theme, showing Blem and Oliver as friends just hangin out.

Kool Stuff Katie played tonight at Kelly's Olympian with Comanche Joey and Trick Sensei. Check out the video below to get your fix if you didn't make it to the show!





Grubby Little Hands Record Release Show at JB's April 30

Psych-pop purveyors Grubby Little Hands have released their new album Garden Party to the mases via Lefse/Chill Mega Chill. The group was started by multi-instrumentalists Donnie Felton and Brian Hall, after meeting in college while studying music composition and theory. The duo released two previous albums, Imaginary Friends (2009) and The Grass Grew Around Our Feet (2012), and now with their latest record, Felton and Hall have been joined by guitarist Joseph Primavera and drummer Chad Brown to help fill out their hazy, sedative-pop sound. You can help Grubby Little Hands celebrate the arrival of Garden Party this evening at Johnny Brenda's, where they'll be joined by labelmate Shelf Life and Cold Foamers, who dropped their new album, Musketball, earlier this year. So take a dab & get lost in the sonics of the night. Johnny Brenda's, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 9pm, $10, 21+ - H.M. Kauffman





Weekend Warrior, April 29 - May 1

The Lawsuits have been on the road with labelmate Former Belle in support of their forthcoming album Moon Son, due out May 13 via Randm Records. For the follow-up to Cool Cool Cool, the band has taken what its has learned from the experience of recording with Bill Moriarty (Dr. Dog, Man Man), and set sail on its own, experimenting and self-producing the new release. But don’t fret; the beloved folk-tinged pop ditties still remain true to the group’s core. Former Belle will be warmed up from tour, providing a polished sheen to the intimate songs from his new album Foreign Bed. Foxtrot & the Get Down will provide the spark needed to get this evening going. The Foundry, 1000 Frankford Ave., 9pm, $10, 21+ (Photo by Ed Newton) - H.M. Kauffman
