Tonight, New York City rock station 101.9 WRXP hosts a Vitamin Water Uncapped concert at the Studio At Webster Hall (tickets). The new concert series, held on the last Friday of every month, will feature some of the best music that the New York City area has to offer. Headlining the show is everyone’s favorite indie rock band, The Dig. Touring relentlessly behind their album Electric Toys, The Dig have played with The Postelles, Dashboard Confessional, Editors, The Antlers, Glasvegas and Beady Eye all in the past year and a half. If you haven’t seen The Dig live and you go to New York City rock shows, there must be something wrong with you (only 1/4 kidding here). Do yourself a favor and download “You’re Already Gone”.
Cleveland-born Brooklyn implants The Kickdrums are carving out a place for themselves in the scene with a unique style that sets them apart from their peers. Combining elements from soul, alternative rock and hip hop, just to name a few, these guys don’t spend too much time in one single genre for very long. Following up two solid well-praised releases, the band will be dropping their latest creation,”Meet Your Ghost” onto the masses this Tuesday, June 28th. If your ears have not been subjected to such awesomeness yet, be sure to check out “Perfect World” from the album featuring Rza of the Wu-Tang Clan.
