The Montauk Project travels to SXSW + release new album at Pianos on 03.29

This Saturday, The Montauk Project is having one last local hurrah at the Mid-Week Beach Party at LI's The Stephen Talkhouse, before heading down to SXSW, where many more hurrahs are waiting. The NYC psych rock group is having a big month with their debut album, 'Belly of the Beast' set to release on March 25th. Preview single 'Lady in White' (streaming) showcases a strenghtening of the blues rock component. The official release party will be on March 29th at 10 p.m. at Pianos. - Christine Cuathen


NYC metalheads IKILLYA announces "Vae Victis" LP on Megaforce

NYC's self described "Street Metal" thrashers IKILLYA are getting set to release their sophomore album 'Vae Victis' in April, a record that explodes from your speakers with relentless fury - considering it was produced by Josh Wilbur (Lamb of God/Hatebreed) this comes as no surprise. For the past 8 years, the band has been honing their craft in some of our favorite local haunts like Trash Bar and St. Vitus. Having recently been signed to Megaforce records indicates that Brooklyn's metal scene is getting some worldwide respect once again.

'Vae Victis' is slated for global release on April 29th, check out the video for the title track 'Vae Victis' below. - Joey Fish @squidterm 


Ghost Beach celebrates release of debut album "BLONDE" at Baby's All Right tonight (03.05)

NYC's electro-pop duo Ghost Beach has been gathering new fans at an enviable rate in the last couple of years - that can happen when you play well craftet, super-catchy, 80s inspired dance pop with epic overtones. Tonight the band celebrates the release of their debut album "BLONDE" at Williamsburg hipsters' favorite new venue Baby's All Right, after which they'll be busy with a SXSW appearance and a following April US tour . Check out also wildly psychedelic opening act Fascinator, also from NYC.

Get on to the bus that's gonna take you to a Workout show (and enjoy free beer while on it)

Brooklyn's semi-lunatic, cheese defier, art rock band Workout is playing Manhattan gay travern Stonewall Inn this Thursday March 6, and to make sure nobody has any excuses to miss this show they are organizing a party bus that picks up ANYBODY who will show up at Williamsburg's Bar BIA 67 between 7 and 9 pm (multiple rides, folks!). During the trip, passengers will be offered complimentary beer (and music), which will surely help put them in the proper mood to make the Stonewall show one to remember. Check out the band's recent video for single "Life is a Nightmare," featuring Cher - or something that looks a lot like her.


Brooklyn punks Cinema Cinema start March residency at Passenger Bar (03.04)

The Brooklyn-based art punk duo Cinema Cinema brings you the quirky punk rock that you so desperately crave - or do you? These proudly D.I.Y. musicians just finished recording their latest full length with producer Martin Bisi (Sonic Youth, Swans, John Zorn) to be released this summer after extensive touring to start in May. Check out their track below titled "UFO” from their 2012 album 'Manic Children And The Slow Aggression.' The band is collaborating with different special guests each Tuesday in March, in Williamsburg Brooklyn at Passenger Bar. CC (& guests) will be live-scoring films by Sergei Eisenstein and other classics as part of the residency. – Michael Haskoor (@Tweetskoor)
