Foxygen Return to New York City to Play Terminal 5 on Friday Night

March 22nd, 2017

Influenced by psychedelia, classic rock and avant-garde music, Sam France (vocals) and Jonathan Rado (guitar) formed the band Foxygen more than a decade ago in a Los Angeles suburb while still in high school. After self-releasing a slew of EPs and singles, they broke into the mainstream with the much-acclaimed long-player We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic (stream it below), out in 2013—and followed by an international tour. Earlier this year, the band (above, performing “Follow the Leader” live on Conan) returned with their fourth studio album, Hang (stream it below), backed by a 40-piece orchestra. “Holding absolutely nothing back, Foxygen deliver an absurdly grandiose album that should not work nearly as well as it does,” raves PopMatters. “Hang is the type of album for which the sobriquet ‘pop masterpiece’ was intended.” Out on the road in support of their new music, Foxygen play Terminal 5 on Friday night. A pair of local acts, the trio Sunflower Bean and the duo Purr, open the show.

Randy Rogers Band and Friends Celebrate Texas Independence Saturday

March 2nd, 2017

A free and independent Republic of Texas was declared 181 years ago today, officially severing ties between what would become the Lone Star State and Mexico. And Saturday at Terminal 5 is the ninth anniversary of us celebrating it in style with an all-star lineup of Texas musicians. According to AllMusic, “indebted as much to Pearl Jam as Merle Haggard, the Randy Rogers Band has been slugging away in the country trenches since the early 2000s.” The group’s eighth studio album, Nothing Shines Like Neon (stream it below), came out last winter to some rave reviews. AllMusic called it “simple and direct, never bothering to disguise how this is a Texas band through and through, one that savors brokenhearted poetry as much as hardwood barroom boogie.” But the Randy Rogers Band (above, performing “Neon Blues” for Texas Music Scene) won’t being going it alone. Instead, they’ll be joined by the like-minded Casey Donahew Band, bringing country with a rock and roll swagger, and singer-songwriters Stoney Larue and William Clark Green, offering a healthy dose of roots-y, Americana-infused country. And as an added bonus, any patron at least 21 years old with a Texas-related tattoo or wearing an article of clothing with a logo from a Texas college on it will receive one complimentary drink.

Run the Jewels Kick Off Four-Night Run at Terminal 5 with Fiery Set

February 27th, 2017

Run the Jewels – Terminal 5 – February 25, 2017

Run the Jewels – Terminal 5 – February 25, 2017
While New York City was sweating out some of the hottest days on record for a February, on Saturday night, Run the Jewels kicked off their takeover of the city at Terminal 5, the first of four shows in the city El-P calls home. By now you should be well familiar with the group, the greatest buddy rap duo spitting rhymes poised to save the world from the guy with a “bad toupee and a spray tan.” Everyone in the crowd was ready for the takeover, losing their minds to the opening bars of Queen’s “We Are the Champions” as Killer Mike and El-P came to the stage. When the bass dropped in opener “Talk to Me,” it was powerful enough to bounce the crowd up off the vibrating floorboards. “Legend Has It” welcomed thousands of “RTJ” chants, raised finger pistols and fists.

An extra bass-y rendition of “Call Ticketron” had Mike and El-P running around, crisscrossing each other center stage and passing off their verses like a baton. “I’ve been imagining being here with family and friends all tour,” said El-P, nearly choked up. His mother was there for the night, no doubt proud of her son as he pantomimed lines like “You can run backward through a field of dicks” off “Oh My Darling Don’t Cry.” But it was Gangsta Boo who had both Mike and El blushing, coming out to absolutely murder her potty-mouthed verses on “Love Again (Akinyele Back).” She had the crowd chanting “pussy power” before returning the stage to Run the Jewels. “She makes me uncomfortable every night,” said El-P, adding, “I’m so ready to elect Gangsta Boo for President of the United States of America. At least she’s truthful!” Some thoughts were then shared on the current president as El-P introduced the charged “Lie, Cheat, Steal.”

The set ended with the song that began it all, “Run the Jewels.” Killer Mike retold the group’s story, meeting in El-P’s Brooklyn to record his own album, R.A.P. Music, and becoming inseparable ever since. “You done good, Ma,” exclaimed Mike, his arm around El-P. They returned to perform an encore of “Close Your Eyes (And Count to Fuck)” and “Down,” a song about challenges conquered and overcome. The night must have felt like a victory lap for the duo, a return to where it all started just a few years ago, having since taken over the world. Don’t expect them to slow down anytime soon because rappers who speak truth to power are needed now more than ever. —Dan Rickershauser | @D4nRicks

Japandroids Return with Anthemic Music, Play Terminal 5 Tomorrow

February 22nd, 2017

Brian King (vocals and guitar) and David Prowse (drummer) bonded over a shared love of music in college and went on to form the garage-rock duo Japandroids more than a decade ago in Vancouver, B.C. Their debut full-length, Post-Nothing (stream it below), arrived in 2009. The two were still fairly unknown, and, frustrated by not already having made it, they figured they’d put out the album and then break up. But thanks to some glowing reviews—including Pitchfork’s “Best New Music” label—the LP ended up becoming an indie smash, and Japandroids (above, performing “Near to the Heart of Wild” on The Late Show with Steven Colbert) went on tour behind it. Their follow-up, the punk-influenced Celebration Rock (stream it below), came out three years later, again pleasing fans and critics alike. The album “starts strong and stays there over the course of its eight songs and 35 minutes,” according to the A.V. Club. After a long tour in support of it, Japandroids stayed quiet for several years. They began playing live shows again over the course of the latter half of 2016, and last month, their third full-length, the anthemic Near to the Wild Heart of Life (stream it below), came out. “With guitars soaring and grooves accelerating, the worlds feel undeniable,” says Rolling Stone, “and you know that when you hear ’em in a club—or theater, or arena—you’ll be bouncing off the walls, shouting every word.” Come shout along when Japandroids play Terminal 5 tomorrow night. Taking a break from the Hold Steady, Craig Finn & the Uptown Controllers open the show.

Borgore Brings New Music to Terminal 5 on Saturday Night

February 16th, 2017

Asaf Borger is a record-label owner who’s been in an Israeli deathcore band in addition to a dubstep duo, but he’s most well-known as the producer and vocalist Borgore, making an aggressive metal-influenced EDM he calls “gorestep.” He’s toured around the world and collaborated with the likes of Miley Cyrus, Waka Flocka Flame and Barrington Levy while releasing a slew of singles and EPs, the most recent of which, The Buygore Album (stream it below), came out in 2015. And with new music on the way—the album Harder arrives on Friday—Borgore celebrates its release at Terminal 5 on Saturday night. NYC’s Prince Fox and Ray Volpe, out of Charlotte, N.C., open the show.

Two Chances to See Joan of Arc Perform Live This Weekend

January 27th, 2017

Expertly blending punk’s volume and dynamics with post-rocks atmospherics, Joan of Arc have been anchored by Tim Kinsella (vocals and guitar) ever since forming more than two decades ago in Chicago. He’s currently backed by an original member, Jeremy Boyle (guitar), and Bobby Burg (bass), Melina Ausikaitis (guitar and vocals) and Theo Katsaounis (drums)—and the band’s first new full-length album in five years, He’s Got the Whole This Land Is Your Land in His Hands (stream it below), just came out last week. Joan of Arc (above, their new video for “Two-Toothed Troll”) “ask a very timely question: ‘What the fuck? Rarely have they had their finger so squarely on the pulse,” says PopMatters. “Patience and collaboration continue to focus and invigorate Joan of Arc.” And with new music comes a new tour. Catch them opening for American Football on Saturday at Terminal 5 and playing the early show at Mercury Lounge on Sunday.
