Punk’s not dead, and with Brooklyn trio Slothrust, it just got a lot more fun. On their latest album, Everyone Else, the three jazz musicians celebrate loudness with furiously danceable tracks (and the odd love song) that inhabit a realm of ennui and...Rock and indie Friday March 3 2017 - Saturday March 4 2017
Laura Stevenson + Adult Mom
Quirky local folkie Laura Stevenson reminds us of how Joanna Newsom sounded before she went utterly baroque, though with a healthy heaping of antipathy and dour mood. Nonetheless, her tuneful songcraft somehow makes the brooding disaffection sound utterly...Sunday March 26 2017

Excuse me, but the "glory days" of New York record stores was not Tower Records. It was: Sam Goody, King Karol, Record Hunter, the fab record buyer at the Doubleday's bookstore on 5th Ave. and 57th Street - and, of course, Colony. Period.
If I could open my own record store, it would be exactly like Rough Trade. Great selection of records, friendly/funny staff, they have art and music books on the second floor along with a ping pong table and area to hang out. There's also a little coffee shop inside and a music venue in the back. They have great shows here, artist signings and special events. Sometimes I stop by just to hang out. if you are into record collecting or music at all, you need to stop by!
