Alrighty, so here are the happening shows this week:
Monday, March 24
Le Loup, the Ruby Sons, Union Hall, Brooklyn
Both of these bands are AWESOME. Please go and see them.
Zooey Deschanel, Ambrosia Parsley, Dave Palmer, the Elegant Two, Glasslands, Brooklyn
Zooey Deschanel is the coolest. I’m not a huge fan of the She and Him album, but Glasslands is a cool venue and the other groups should be a good time.
Tuesday, March 25
Delta Spirit, Port O’Brien, Union Hall, Brooklyn
Delta Spirit is awesome.
Crystal Castles, HEALTH, Esque, Studio B, New York
Look at the lineup. Enough said.

The Mugs, Gold Streets, Lungs of a Giant, Magnetic Field, Brooklyn
I love the Mugs.
Xiu Xiu, Thao Nguyen, First Unitarian Church, Philadelphia
Awesome bands. Good times.
Thursday, March 27
Sunset Rubdown, Ecstatic Sunshine, Brooklyn Masonic Temple, Brooklyn
I love anything to do with Wolf Parade. Sunset Rubdown is awesome.
Caribou, F*#k Buttons, Music Hall of Williamsburg, Brooklyn
CARIBOU IS TOTALLY AMAZING AND THIS SHOW WILL ROCK YOUR WORLD.
Friday, March 28
Simian Mobile Disco, Museum of Natural History, New York
If you are over 21 or have a really good fake, YOU MUST GO TO THIS SHOW. Simian Mobile Disco. And dinosaurs. And whales. THIS IS THE GREATEST CONCEPT SINCE SLICED BREAD AND I WILL HATE YOU FOREVER IF YOU DON’T GO (I have yet to procure a fake ID for myself).
Saturday, March 29
Die! Die! Die!, Music Hall of Williamsburg, Brooklyn
I haven’t listened to much of their stuff, but they seem pretty cool.
Blitzen Trapper, Fleet Foxes, Ola Podrida, Bowery Ballroom, New York
Just want to give a shout out to Fleet Foxes, one of the best new bands out of Seattle. Their EP was just released a few weeks ago- I highly recommend it. They’ve been local favorites for years.
Sunday, March 30
Beth Orton, Music Hall of Williamsburg, Brooklyn
I like Beth Orton.
Boredoms, Terminal 5, New York
The Boredoms are Japanese. They are cool fun times.
