The Bergamot open for SKATERS and Team Spirit at Brooklyn Night Bazaar on 5/14

On Thursday May 14, garage-pop rockers SKATERS will headline an all NYC bill for one of the last shows at Brooklyn Night Bazaar in Williamsburg (the venue will close its doors on May 23rd). THey'll be joined on stage by raucous foursome Team Spirit and new to us husband and wife alt-pop duo, The Bergamot. The event is the last of 3 free private parties sponsored by Jack Daniels and doNYC. Check out The Bergamot's brand new single, "Forget About Tomorrow" that was just released yesterday. To gain access to the show RSVP here. - Cece Port


Clouder loses a member, announces split EP

We’re sad to hear 5-piece, surf-angst band Clouder might not be long for this world—this June guitarist Steve Spinella will be disappearing into that speculated wormhole between Brooklyn and California. In a rather elegiac sounding Facebook post the band wrote “we just want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has supported us throughout the years-- we've played with some really fantastic bands and made a lot of wacky friends along the way. thank you for getting sticky with us and for catching eric every time he jumped off the stage mid-song.” In better news, they’ve announced a split EP coming out this spring with their buds Pow Wow!, so keep a look out. - Leora Mandel


NYC sonic terrorists The Yin Yangs play Palisades 5/23, Bohemian Grove BBQ Festival 5/30

Garage-dreamfuzz trio The Yin Yangs will be playing Palisades May 23rd and Bohemian Grove’s super scrumptious BBQ Festival on May 30th. If you can understand more than half of the lyrics on their debut record, “Cowgirl”, you might want to think about offering your talents to a top-secret government organization, or that X-Men mansion supposedly placed up in Westchester County. These songs are smoky, spacey, and sometimes the guitars turn into ray guns. Available both digitally and on cassette. Sounds like a healthy helping to us. - Leora Mandel

Electronic NYC artist on the rise: Galcher Lustwerk

Emerging in 2012 as a prominent member of BK's experimental electronic label/collective, White Material, producer/deejay Galcher Lustwerk (who made our recent list of Best Emerging NYC Artists) specializes in a trance-like mix of ambient and house music. On this year's sleeper, “In the Place” (streaming) he sings/raps in a smoky voice that is nevertheless smooth as silk. Galcher will be releasing futures about to release new material on his new label Lustwerk Music.

NJ Songwriter on the rise: Matt Romagna

New Jersey-hailing singer/songwriter/producer Matt Romagna, who played Pianos on Saturday 05.09, delivers sunny folk with his first EP 'We Will Be Alright' (2014). In the rolling, handclap-backed title track, the musician tells the story of travelers persevering on a literally rocky road while the airy “When My Ship Comes Sailing In” has him relating his own determination over unspooling guitars. The singer/songwriter genre may connote heartbreak and misery but Matt Romagna refreshingly opts for joyfulness. Listen to the upbeat EP single "We Will Be Alright" below. - Zach Weg
