The Dig have been making a name for themselves in the New York City music scene for more than five years, and Saturday’s performance at Music Hall of Williamsburg was proof of why—the band closing the show with disco lights and a wildly excited crowd. With their addictive shoegaze rock, the Dig had everyone in the audience smiling and dancing along. The local quartet has been touring in support of their recent release, Bloodshot Toyko, a bewitching album that hooks in listeners from beginning to end.

Thanks to their melting pot of sounds—deftly mixing garage punk, shoegaze lyrics and alt-rock vibes—the Dig have, unsurprisingly, toured with some big names like the Lumineers and Portugal. The Man. On Saturday night, they rocked across the stage and filled the Brooklyn venue with reverberating bass and drums, also playing material from their You & I EP. The Dig’s vocalist and bassist, Emile Mosseri, displayed an impressive vocal range, going from slow and soft to high and captivating. By keeping the show upbeat, taking selfies with fans while playing and using a disco ball to beautifully light the floor, the Dig kept things interestingthey never disappoint. —Karen Silva | @ClassicKaren

Two Nights of the Pierces

January 11th, 2012


The Pierces—sisters Allison and Catherine—come from an artistic family. Their father was a guitarist and their mother was a painter. So it should come as no surprise that the two had arty endeavors. They each became accomplished ballerinas before deciding the kind of stage work they wanted to do was of the musical variety. They began writing songs and a friend helped get them in an in with a Nashville recording company. An album, The Pierces, followed but it never really gained much ground. Undeterred, the talented sisters moved on, literally, to New York City, where they’ve found more success, releasing three more albums—the most recent of which, You & I, came out last year. But the real way to experience the Pierces (above, playing “Love You More” on Later … with Jools Holland) is in person, which you can do tonight and tomorrow at Mercury Lounge. But you’d better act now because tickets are going fast.
