The AV Club always does a great job with their interviews, getting people to talk about what inspires them in a way never comes off as pretentious.

NYC Summer Show Guide Part IV: July 1 – July 10

In Celebrate Your Scene, Gigs, New Jersey on June 28, 2010 at 11:48 pm

June was awesome (shows-wise, at least). Saw Titus Andronicus for the probably 300th time. Also saw Cults, Male Bonding, Ducktails, Andrew Cedermark, Dana Jewell, Big Troubles, No Demons Here, WOOM, Wild Nothing, Tonstartssbandht, and Makeout Videotape. And that was just in the past week or so. The first 10 days of July promise to be just as incredible. The highlights for this week and a half are Beach Fossils (7/1), Alex Bleeker & The Freaks (7/2, Group Tightener Record Release Show), The Hood Internet (7/2), the Rooftop Films shows (7/2, 7/3, 7/7), Future Islands (and like 30 other bands on 7/4), Beirut (7/5, 7/6), Tonstartssbandht (7/7, 7/8), and Real Estate & Kurt Vile (7/9, 7/10).  Enjoy.

Also, make sure you check out the Montreal Shows & Events page because they’re a LOT of good shows coming up and the post-summer calender is starting to shape up very nicely. Titus Andronicus are playing Il Motore on August 22, so no one needs to tell you I’ll be back in Montreal before then.
