Oberhofer never met a free show they didn't like....

They should change the name of this series if these are the acts they are going to book.

Soft Pack has a shitty name but good music

Dan Deacon, Wild Nothing, John Maus, and Grimes? That's a fucking sick line-up. Way better than last years line-up.

Better than when they were The Muslims. They should really be headlining that show.

2:11 as if it needed further proof that A LOT of kids have zero taste...

231 everyone in the world, fans and music critics alike, agree that the new Grimes LP is amazing. keep telling everyone other than yourself that they have zero taste, i'll keep listening to great music. deal?

pretty hard to argue with 38 positive reviews against 4 mixed reviews and ZERO negative reviews.

I'm sure that if you bring your Hewlett Packard printer, it'll be a hell of a show.

This garbage sounds like a three year old 'composed' it on some fisher price toy.

Praise is for Grimes' album - certainly not her live show.

Posted by Anonymous | April 26, 2012 3:56 PM

saw her at her last run through nyc. she is great, mixes everything live. not a laptop in sight, just a bunch of decks and keyboards on tables surrounding her.

3:08 still trusts music critics.

Posted by Anonymous | April 26, 2012 4:12 PM

no, i trust 99% of the word's opinion (including my own, having extensively listened) over that of an anonymous brooklynvegan commenter.

show me someone who has actually listened to the album that can explain why it is bad, and i'll pay attention.

visions is prob AOTY. if its not in yr runnin yr just fucking kidding yrself.

idk about AOTY but it's top 10.

Dan Deacon? Really? How many straight years of free shows has this guy done?

My guess is he wont get door deals from smart promoters, so his agents must salivate when a guarantee comes along.

Am I the ONLY BV commenter who has impostors such as 1:12pm? LOL.

If you're gonna post under my name at least write more than a sentence or two ya joik.

They should change the name of this shit from "River Rocks" to "River Su cks" or "River Su cks Co cks".

What is this sh it? The cr ap that Kimmel, Fallon etc. rejected?

There are ton of bands better than this shit to book. These bands must pay to play this - what else since this sh it is free and who wants to pay for bands to play for free?

Posted by D | April 27, 2012 3:32 AM

maybe if you could string together at least 2 letters you could have a valid claim to a screen name.
keep up with the one liners, though, and I am certain that Kimmel and Fallon would not reject your solid gold material.
You should do stand up.

Posted by Maitre'D | April 27, 2012 6:16 AM

...says a jackass who doesn't begin his/her comments with a capital and uses the numeral "2" instead of the word "two".

It's "would have have a valid claim to a screenname" not "could" you failed highschool freshman English class bi tch.

I spaced out cursewords so my comments would have a better chance to be posted, dipwipe.

I ALWAYS post under my screename and it's clear to see it's me when I post cuz the imposters clearly show they're that.

LOL at you being on my di ck and a sshurt so much your screen name is a take on mine.

Bigger LOL at all you text brains who can't register more than a sentence or two, or x amount of letters and words cuz you're "Facebooking" "Tweeting" "texting" and living on your iPhone more than reading, listening, and talking to people.

I LOVE writing more than a sentence or two on here cuz it only shows I am literate and a thinking person and you all are braindead from texting since 2002 which is probably the last time most of you read a book.

9:47 I'm just reading all of this - new to the conversation - and you have horrible grammar/syntax. Just sayin'.

Posted by Anonymous | April 27, 2012 10:25 AM

10:25pmm My grammar and syntax is fine you little bitch.

Let me edit your bullshit:

"I'm just reading all this ("of" is unnecessary) and new to the conversation. You, D, have horrible grammar and syntax. 'Just saying."

^^^ No ' at the end because you can't end a sentence with a ' and a period.

There. Your grade: F.

Posted by D | April 28, 2012 6:19 AM

My grammar and syntax ARE fine.
