The 30th Annual Birthday Tribute To The Late George L. Popp @ The Bowery Electric

MANHATTAN, NY—Bill Popp has been a fixture in the New York music scene since the 1970s. Performing as Bill Popp & The Tapes since 1981, his pop rock sound has survived other passing trends, including glam rock and punk rock. Never achieving fame, he is perhaps the only artist that …

Enslaved @ Irving Plaza

MANHATTAN, NY—A warm December night made coat check unnecessary at Irving Plaza for the oddly-matched bill of Between The Buried and Me and Enslaved. On paper, it was a sensible combination of progressive metal acts, but in practice, the disparity between Enslaved’s Norwegian Viking attitude and BTBAM’s American math-metalcore made …

Neko Case @ Apollo Theater

MANHATTAN, NY—Neko Case is something of a ringer. Whether or not you’ve seen her live, watched performances online, or just know the albums she’s released on her own and with the New Pornographers, it’s evident that her voice rises a step above the rest. There’s soul in the timbre, mixed …
