Happy three day weekend! I hope you are enjoying the extra day of rest and relaxation, and if you have to work today then I’m sorry and I hope things get better. What’s really exciting about this week, besides the long weekend, is that there are a ton of free shows!
Tuesday, February 18th
sold out | U.S. Girls @ The Dance ~ 21+
Geez, RIP The Dance. This is one of the last shows they’ll actually have at the venue so go bid farewell if you manage to find a ticket (they’ve sold out).
Thursday, February 20th
$11.20 | Grim Streaker, T.V.O.D., Ashjesus @ Planet X ~ 21+
Wow, I saw Ashjesus had a release party a few weeks ago and didn’t go and I now heavily regret that decision. Their latest release, “Demo II”, is explosive. The clashing instruments, the impassioned vocals, love it. It’s fast, it’s wild, it’ll be a good night :)
free | Tony or Tony Album Release Show @ Baby’s All Right ~ 21+
Fun fact! The first (and so far only) time I’ve seen Tony or Tony play was actually during an Instagram Live set because their show that night got canceled. They managed to keep my attention glued to my tiny phone screen for about an hour. I have a different opinion on virtual concerts now, but you get the chance to see them in person for free so don’t miss out!
Saturday, February 22nd
free | Steele w/ The Bounce and Jadeworm @ Rodrigue’s Coffee House ~ all ages
A free show! Discover some new music and make a trip to the Bronx, all for the cost of a subway ride (which is free if you know what you’re doing).
$11 | Underground Zine Release Party with Poppies @ Alphaville ~ 18+
Poppies! A while back, in a different last minute tickets email, I featured two shows with Poppies on the line-up! The way I feel about this band hasn’t changed, so get wise and see them stat. Also, Underground Zine is releasing a print edition that night so you get the chance to read about DIY scenes around the world!
I don’t know if I’ve said it before, but if you know of a show happening this week that I haven’t listed but you think I might be interested in send it my way! I can’t get everything, but I do try my best :) Also, sometimes I forget to include a show or something comes to my attention late so make sure to read the longer newsletter for anything this one doesn’t cover!
