Two of the worst comedians in the city have some of the greatest comedians on their show to save it from being an utter failure, and actually make it... pretty damn good

Bombay Bicycle Club The Greeting Committee - Brooklyn Steel
Through October 08, 2019 - Brooklyn

Ages: 16 & Over It might seem odd to describe Bombay Bicycle Club as veterans given that nobody in the band is older than 24, but this is their fourth album, which is something of a landmark achievement in today's blink-and-you'll-miss-them climate. The Bombay Bicycle Club story is something that isn't meant to happen any more – a band given the space by their label, Island, to evolve with each release. The album was produced by Jack in the band's studio in London, making it their most personal record to date. There was always purpose from the beginning to bring everything together for this album, to tell a story from the first track through to the finale with everything interconnecting as a complete body of work.

Big Thief - Brooklyn Steel
October 09, 2019 - Brooklyn

Ages: 16 & Over The trails that Brooklyn's Big Thief—Adrianne Lenker (guitar, vocals), Buck Meek (guitar), Max Oleartchik (bass), and James Krivchenia (drums)—take us down on Capacity, the band's highly anticipated second record, are overgrown with the wilderness of pumping souls. After last year's stunning Masterpiece, Capacity was recorded in a snowy winter nest in upstate New York at Outlier Studio with producer Andrew Sarlo. The album jumps right into lives marked up and nipped in surprisingly swift fashion. They are peopled and unpeopled, spooked and soothed, regenerating back into a state where they can once again be vulnerable. Lenker's songs introduce us to a gallery of multifacted women and deal with the complicated matters of identity — at once dangerous and curious, though never unbelievable. Lenker shows us the gentle side of being ripped open. Tricked into love, done in and then witnessing the second act of pulling oneself back together to prepare for it to all happen again, but this time to a sturdier soul, one who is going to take the punches better than ever before and deal some jabs and roundhouses of their own.

An Evening with over the Rhine - The Bell House
October 10, 2019 - Brooklyn

This event is 21 and over When you listen to Over the Rhine, the supremely talented musical couple comprised of Karin Bergquist and Linford Detweiler, you quickly fall under the spell of Karin's timeless voice "which has the power to stop the world in its tracks" (Performing Songwriter). But then the songs start hitting you. Paste magazine writes, "Over the Rhine creates true confessional masterpieces that know neither border nor boundary" and included Bergquist and Detweiler in their list of 100 Best Living Songwriters. Rolling Stone recently wrote, Over the Rhine is a band "with no sign of fatigue, whose moment has finally arrived." That's quite a sentiment for a band celebrating 30 years of writing, recording, and life on the road. But as Karin Bergquist states, "There is still so much music left to be made." Love & Revelation, the brand new album from Over the Rhine, is a record for right now. The songs have been rigorously road tested and burst at the seams with loss, lament, and resilient hope. The LA Times writes, "The Ohio based husband and wife duo has long been making soul-nourishing music, and the richness only deepens."
