Long Island Happenings: January 2017

This December was a holiday spectacular for Long Island. While I personally couldn’t see as many of the amazing holiday lineups of bands that I wanted to due to finals, the community saw everything from a The Sleeping reunion to the classic “ChristMosh” Patent Pending show to mathy and now …

As winter comes by, music things slow down a little bit, only to culturally explode (in a good way) later in the spring. But Long Island saw some truly fantastic and unique shows this November, and here’s the three best:

Long Island Happenings: November 2016

Punk is alive. Well, not really. But with the literal dozens of Long Island bands that head down to play The Fest at the end of October in Florida, it’s no surprise that there were two very fantastic punk shows on Long Island during the last couple weeks of last …

Long Island Happenings: October 2016

September was a weak month for Long Island. Well, not for the scene, but I didn’t go to a show all month and that’s nobody’s fault but my own. But on the very first of October, I attended what is easily one of the best punk tours to grace Long …

Long Island Happenings: June 2016

May is usually a slow month. Spring tours are wrapping up, generally in bigger markets, summer tours have been announced, but aren’t quite in the “anticipated for summer concert” range, and amphitheater season is nearly within reach.
