In a world where the quality of indie rock ebbs and flows constantly, it’s comforting to know that there are bands out there that are consistently being awesome. White Rabbits, hailing from Brooklyn, is one such group. And if there’s one thing that White Rabbits knows how to do well, it is definitely writing strong, catchy bass lines and pulsing percussion.

By Michel Dussack

I’ve been waiting to see Kaiser Chiefs headline a show for a very long time. Believe it or not, there was a time when I wasn’t going to three or four concerts a week, and was lucky to go to one every few months. And so, when Kaiser Chiefs announced that they would be headlining Roseland Ballroom in the middle of September 2011, I was super pumped. Unfortunately their label went under, and the album and show …

Alabama Shakes 3/15 SXSW Hype Hotel Photos

March 22, 2012 drainu182 0

SXSW’s most buzzed about band, Alabama Shakes, played at the Hype Hotel last Thursday and put on another great show. A quick aside about the Hype Hotel, we love it there. There’s free drinks (well 2 drink tickets), free food and free music. You don’t even need an official SXSW wristband or pass. Sure you might have to wait in line for a bit but it’s worth it. Our photographer Phil DeSimone braved through the packed crowd to get …
