See Acclaimed French Metal Band Gojira Tonight in Williamsburg

February 18th, 2013

With the release of their first album, 2001’s Terra Incognita, Gojira—Joe Duplantier (vocals and guitar), Christian Andreu (guitar), Mario Duplantier (drums) and Jean-Michel Labadie (bass)—earned comparisons to Tool and Pantera, in thanks to their loud progressive groove metal. Over the ensuing years, the band from Bayonne—France, not Jersey—known for environmental themes, has steadily grown in popularity and earned acclaim for high-energy live shows and an impressive recorded catalog of DVDs, EPs and LPs, including last year’s L’Enfant Sauvage (stream it below). The A.V. Club says it’s the four-piece’s “most articulate release to date, and that’s saying something.” They are currently winding down their North American tour, so watch Gojira, above, performing “The Art of Dying,” and then go see them play Music Hall of Williamsburg tonight.

Spend Saturday Night with Juliette Lewis

August 17th, 2010

Perhaps you first saw her as Wayne’s girlfriend on The Wonder Years. Or maybe it was when Robert De Niro stuck his thumb in her mouth in Martin Scorsese’s remake of Cape Fear. And you probably had no idea Juliette Lewis could sing—unless you saw her do PJ Harvey covers in Strange Days—before she fronted Juliette and the Licks up until last year. Well, she can. And she’s back with a new band, the New Romantiques, a new album, Terra Incognita (produced by the Mars Volta’s Omar Rodriguez-Lopez) and the same fiery, swaggering stage presence. See for yourself when Juliette Lewis (above, doing “Hard Lovin’ Woman” for Rolling Stone) plays Music Hall of Williamsburg on Saturday.
