Young Prisms, Boy Friend, Alex Bleeker & The Freaks, Tanks Amigo, Glasslands, $10
Monday’s show at Glasslands freatures Austin dream-pop band Boy Friend and San Francisco shoegazers Young Prisms, two bands with equal appreciation for sleepy guitars and geometrically inspired artwork. If there's no fog machine at this show, something's gone desperately wrong.
Monday, March 5, 8:30 p.m., Glasslands 289 Kent Ave (between South 1st and South 2nd streets), Brooklyn, New York 11211; 718-599-1450.
Julia Holter, Sarah Cahill, (le) Poisson Rouge, $15
With new record Ekstasis, experimental singer/songwriter Julia Holter has just
released one the most lush, carefully arranged records in recent memory. Her live show is recommended for people who like Joanna Newsom, Laurie Anderson, adventures through enchanted forests, or other things that are beautiful.
Tuesday, March 6, (le) Poisson Rouge,158 Bleecker Street (between Thompson and Sullivan streets); 212-353-3474.
Four Tet, Mike Slott, (le) Poisson Rouge, $20
After more than a decade of genre-defining electronic music, you probably don’t need another reason to go see Kieran Hebden (aka, Four Tet). Then he goes and drops something like this beautiful collaboration with Burial, and you have yet another reason to get down to (le) Poisson Rouge on Saturday.
