LMB NYC: This Week’s Concert Calendar
This week’s must-see shows in NYC:
WED MAY 4
Foals and Freelance Whales w/ The Naked and Famous at Terminal 5
I’ll definitely be at the New Deal this Saturday, since it may be one of their final performances in the area. Gotta get a last taste of the original Canadian untz, right?
Comments on Concert Listings:
For this week’s post I used Bandsintown.com‘s concert listings. Overall, I like BIT’s ease of tracking, slick interface, and their Facebook app. I also dig their concert cloud interface and found it useful for preparing this post. However, there were a few shows missing that I saw on other listings, like Railroad Earth. This may have been due to the artists that are automatically being tracked (or not tracked) in my account, but it could have been avoided if there was a a simplified search option allowing me to look for upcoming shows in all of NYC (note: typing “New York City” into the main search box did not work; it should).
