Ida Maria @ Mercury Lounge – 12/3/13
Ida Maria

Ida Maria, about six years after breaking out with “Oh My God,” returned with a new album and some shows, including two in NYC this week. The first of those shows was at Mercury Lounge last night (12/3), and it was fun show, free of incidents, with a lot of the crowd singing along. Opening the show was NYC’s leather jacket rockers Foley, and pictures of both bands (including one of Ida’s setlist) are in this post.

Ida’s next and final NYC show for the week happens at Rough Trade NYC tonight (12/4) with Field Mouse and MiniBoone. Tickets for tonight’s show are still available.

Meanwhile, Foley plays Glasslands tonight (12/4), but most interestingly, it’s also the delayed NYC debut of Canadian punks The Dirty Nil, who were supposed to play here in october but had to cancel. The Dirty Nil don’t have too much material to their name, but just about everything they’ve got is pretty rippin’. We called “Nicotine,” the single off their upcoming Smite EP, “an under-2-minute blast of punk speed and aggression with a quick mid-section of J Mascis-worthy riffage.” You can check out that song’s video below. Also on tonight’s Glasslands show is Shy Hunters and Tyburn Saints, and tickets are available.
