Prince Rama Record Release @ Baby’s All Right, 3/4/2016

Prince Rama, two sisters with a sizable catalogue chronicling their exploration of “The Now Age”, debuted their latest release this past Friday, titled XTREME NOW. Joining their sold-out celebration were PC Worship and NYMPH. It’s their second stop on their supporting 2016 tour, which ends on, yes, 4/20, back in Brooklyn. NYMPH’s rhythmic drone enveloped the […]

Kurt Vile and the Violators @ College Street Music Hall, 2/17/16

On February 17th, a Wednesday night, I attended my first show at College Street Music Hall – Kurt Vile and the Violators. College Street replaces the Palace Performing Arts Center, which went unused from 2002 until its renovation by Premier Concerts in 2015. The new Music Hall has already hosted bands like Modest Mouse and Wilco, and is poised to continue […]

Circa Survive @ The Paramount, 4/29/15

It seems that with every passing of a decade comes the ebbing and flowing of musical genres. The post-millennial trend saw the departure of grunge and the rising of post-hardcore and emo music scenes. The death of Napster and the birth of Myspace saw an industry evolution unlike any other. Among the plethora and breadth of […]

Passenger Played Free Central Park Concert

August can be a frantic time for many. “Back to school” sales are in full swing, students are mentally preparing themselves for the realities and woes of thesis papers and just about everyone is scrambling to get as many things checked off their “summertime bucket list”. But on Sunday, August 10th, Central Park was filled […]

Lord Huron @ The Space at Westbury

Shortly before Neat Beet was a domain name or even an idea, I found myself at Firefly Music Festival 2013. While I did get a chance to see one two of my favorite rock groups growing up (Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers and Red Hot Chili Peppers) it was a relatively unknown name that struck my interest. […]

Moderat @ 1260 Atlantic Avenue, 4/26/14

The German electronic project Moderat, a collaboration between electronic duo Modeselektor and electronic musician Apparat stopped by Brooklyn to play a warehouse show. It was probably one of the most fun live acts I’ve ever been to. It was part of their 2014 world tour, and their only show in the U.S. after Moogfest. Moderat plays […]

twenty one pilots @ The Paramount 4/29/14

Despite the bad weather that plagued much of the United States, New York Avenue in Huntington looked like a parking lot on the first day of summer camp. Hundreds of middle and high school students standing in line indifferent to the rain while others by the car-load got dropped off in front of the venue. It’s a scene typically […]

Spend A Weekend with The Feelies

Despite having an appreciation for historic venues, I never did make it out to Maxwell’s, even for its ceremonial closing performances. It’s haunted me as much as missing out on an experience can haunt someone. But in April, a band crucial to the venue’s longevity and one that continues to personify everything ideal about rock […]
