Caitlin Rose @ Mercury Lounge
"Although 23-year-old singer-songwriter Caitlin Rose was born and raised in Nashville, she first rose to acclaim in Europe, where her debut album put her name on the influential UK music magazine NME's "Cool List" for 2010. Rose's confident voice and dexterous delivery have earned her comparisons to great country singers like Patsy Cline and Loretta Lynn. She's also a gifted lyricist with a knack for wry observations and artful understatement. It's a talent that runs in the family--her mother is Nashville songwriter Liz Rose, who has penned hits for Taylor Swift, among others." [NPR]Caitlin Rose's tour hit Mercury Lounge in NYC on Saturday evening for a show with Luke Rathborne. More pictures, some videos, and her setlist from the show, below...

It's that time of year again, when The L Magazine picks "8 Bands You Need to Hear Right Now." Like usual, the 2011 list is a mix of bands you may have seen, may have heard of, and more under-the-radar picks. No photoshoot at Bushwick Country Club this year. Here's the list, with the artists' next next NYC area show (where applicable):
Grand Rapids (no upcoming shows)This year's Honorable Mentions list includes Gross Relations, The Weed Hounds, The Hairs and more. There's also an entertaining sidebar where The L asks local bands and tastemakers "So, What's Wrong With the Brooklyn Music Scene?"
Devin Therriault (no upcoming shows)
Radical Dads (April 28 [tomorrow], The Delancey)
Mainland (May 25, Brooklyn Bowl)
Luke Rathborne (no upcoming shows)
Slowdance (May 9, Knitting Factory)
Yellow Ostrich (June 3, Mercury Lounge)
Family Trees (no upcoming shows)
And if you missed it, The L Mag's Northside Festival just announced a slew of new bands to this year's line-up, including Surfer Blood (opening for GbV), Sharon Van Etten (opening for Beirut), Iceage (U.S. debut), Frankie Rose & the Outs, Teengirl Fantasy, Theophilus London, DOM, Mount Eerie, White Fence, Blondes, Janka Nabay • Holiday Shores, Eternal Summers, Delicate Steve, Gatekeeper and pretty much every band on the "8 Bands" list.
Noah & the Whale @ Bowery Ballroom
"I would gladly spend my last night on earth with Noah & the Whale... The fullness and the richness of their song whether on acoustic folk songs or rock songs on the electric guitar is amplified a thousand times by the band's enthusiasm. It's easy to see on their faces that they love what they're doing: even their bleakest, darkest songs like 'I Have Nothing' have a purity and an elegance that sets them apart from broody emo ballads on the radio. Similarly, Noah & the Whale's poppiest, most playful songs aren't just throwaway songs: substance and masterful lyrics complement pure infectiousness. -[Trust Me On This]That's some strong Noah & the Whale love, and it's also someone's review from one of their two recent Bowery Ballroom shows that they played with Luke Rathborne (3/21 & 3/22).
The NYC shows came just a few days after the band were down at SXSW to play a few shows including a showcase at Stubb's on March 17th with TV On The Radio (who also played a day party at the same venue), Charles Bradley & the Menahan Street Band (who have a Brooklyn show coming up), Portugal The Man (whose upcoming tour brings them to Webster Hall), and Foster The People (who have two upcoming sold out NYC shows).
TVOTR's set is watchable at Spinner's site.
Pictures from both the 3/21 Bowery show AND the official SXSW showcase, all bands included, adorn this post. They continue below along with some new Noah & the Whale song streams, Noah's NYC setlists and more dates...

Last night saw the NYC debut of Little Joy-the side project between Fabrizio Moretti of The Strokes, Rodrigo Amarante of Los Hermanos, and Binki Shapiro at a sold out show at the Mercury Lounge.Little Joy has a few more NY/NJ shows coming up including one at Maxwell's in Hoboken tonight, Friday November 14th. More pictures and the setlist below...
Drawing band support from long-time Strokes compadre Matt Romano (drums) along with guitar power from Michael Ian Cummings and Matthew Borg from opener The Dead Trees, the band had an impressive, complete sound. Perhaps it's testament to the individual experience of each of the band members, but was hard to believe that this band is on it's first live tour-although there were some starts and stops, for the most part the performance was a well-oiled machine, where the music flowed freely and easily from their instruments and mouths.

Friends & Family,
We have set up a benefit show for our dear friend Frank Bango @ The Bowery Ballroom for Tuesday August 26th. As some of you may or may not know Frank is sick and we're going to raise some money so he can get better and pay his American doctors. If we lived in France or Cuba or Canada there would be no need for this kind of thing.
Tickets are going on sale tomorrow (7/17 at noon) and we hope you all go buy yours in advance as it will probably sell out. Frank has a million friends and we were able to nail down some impressive talent.
The Frank Bango Bone Marrowthon / Stem Cellebration Benefit with music from:
Dean & Britta
and many others....
Paypal Donation site and official Bango Benefit site will be up in a few days
