Post Author:

Live without dead time on Thursday with Miracles, Lo Moda, Thurst Lab, caUSE coMotion!, the Beets, Cheap Time, Sam Amidon, MV Carbon & Aki Onda, Made Out Of Babies, Anamanguchi.

Sans Temps Morts is Nate Dorr’s daily New York City events guide.


E4E1: Miracles debut album release and Creative Capitalism party with Miracles, Lo Moda, Thrust Lab, Antimagic, Weekends at Death By Audio, 49 South 2nd St btwn Kent and Wythe, Williamsburg. All Ages. 8pm doors, $7.

A very promising line-up. Dramatic, taut, and key-heavy, Brooklyn's Miracles are a synthesized post-punk counterpart to all the capable lo-fi bands taking the psych-garage route these days. With their debut album, they'll join Creative Capitalism, the Baltimore-based label responsible for the Ponytail debut and release party bill-mates Lo Moda, whose crisp, guitar-and-violin pop is propelled by a rare underlying urgency. Plus HEALTH//DISCO electro remixers Thrust Lab. This sounds exceptionally promising.


Todd P garage show with at Ash's Place, 234 Wythe Ave at N. 4th St, Williamsburg. All Ages. 8pm doors, $6.
Cheap Time, The Beets, Jacques Detergent, White Diamonds

Cheap Time are for one, almost exactly what comes to mind when I see that they're on In the Red and two, quite good as far as that goes. Quintessential garage rock licks, snappy and verb-laden. Now in a newly expanded bill featuring local garage favorites the Beets and caUSE coMOTION to fill out the bill. Curated by Mike Sniper.


The Museum of Arts and Design is a narrow vertical space perched on the edge of Columbus Circle since about a month ago (open at least, the building-in-progress has been drawing intrigued eyes for the last couple years. Apparently there are to be occasional concerts there: next (first?) is Vermont's Sam Amidon , who frequently plays with the likes of Doveman and Nico Muhly. For this show, the chamber-folk guitarist/singer will be presenting a combination of songs, video work, and comics. 2 Columbus Circle, Midtown. All Ages. 7:30 to 9pm, $15.
