tons of awesome shows coming up during the month of may… here’s just a small sampling of those i plan to attend/wish i were attending.
GOING - may 6: the pains of being pure at heart, twin shadow @ webster hall. pains have established themselves as one of my favorite bands of late, and i can’t wait to see how the latest album belong translates live.
WISH - may 10 & 14: IAMDONALD tour (donald glover & childish gambino) @ bowery ballroom and music hall of williamsburg, respectively. donald glover is absolutely killing it, both on community and with his rap alter ego childish gambino. mark my words: these will be the last times you’ll be able to see him doing either stand-up or a live music show on stages this small.
GOING - may 12: dale earnhardt jr. jr. @ the rock shop. maybe my favorite new band of 2010 - i absolutely can’t wait for their full-length to come out this summer. if their ep and live shows are any indication, we should expect good very things.
GOING - may 15: sleigh bells and CSS @ bowery ballroom. i suspect i’ll need to bring the earplugs for this one… but i probably won’t. sleigh bells should absolutely destroy this venue after CSS starts the dance party.
GOING - may 18: gruff rhys @ the knitting factory. love this guy, and fell in love with his live show when i saw him at a much smaller venue this past january. since the knitting factory is easily my favorite brooklyn venue, this whole show should be a major love fest.
