What's Going On: 2/26, 2/27, 2/28 & 3/1, 2015

Screaming Females celebrate the release of Rose Mountain this weekend at Brooklyn's Knitting Factory.

Rose Mountain

Big, busy weekend around here at CoolDad Music HQ. CoolDaughter #1 has her championship swim meets, and I have band practice. Don't ask. We're also entering the first month that has spring in it, and there are several excellent shows to check out.

Things get started on Thursday night with Doe, The Blithedale Romance, Everything Ever, and Eli Whitney & The Sound Machine at New Brunswick's Court Tavern. Pat DiNizio continues his free Langosta residency. The Saint has the Jerzy Jung curated Songwriters Circle featuring Rick Barry, acoustic Dollys, and more.

On Friday, Roadside Graves are back with a show at Asbury Lanes that also features Vinyl Tigers, Lowlight, and The Vaughns. The Clydes, The Strangers, 4444, General Collection, and The Great Depression are at Court Tavern. The rescheduled EP release show for Maeby Funk happens at The PussyPad with We're Ghosts Now, Foxanne, and Debt League. Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes hit The Stone Pony to play some deep cuts. The Wonder Bar has Will Evans, Chevy Lopez, Jamie Coppa, and Tam Garcia.

Honah Lee hold their record release party at Asbury Lanes on Saturday with help from Mikey Erg, Molly Rhythm, Doug Zambon, and our friends in Hot Blood. New Brunswick's Bomb Shelter hosts Casual, Dogs on Acid, You Vandal, and Wall. NGHTCRWLRS celebrate their own record release at Jersey City's The Dopeness with Cicada Radio, France, and all-time faves Dentist. The Empire hosts a great show which gives you your second chance of the weekend to catch Maeby Funk and Foxanne along with Holy Komodo, The Gray Company and Dollys (whom I am tempted to refer to as DOLLAH$ forever more). Overlake and Sink Tapes head to Brooklyn's Gutter with KNTRLR and Hermano Stereo. Teenage Halloween hit The PussyPad with The Great Depression, Feeny, and more. Only Living Boy hold their record release at The Saint with a diverse bill that includes Amy Malkoff & The Moonshines, Thee Idea Men, and Ether Sunday.

Also on Saturday night, Screaming Females celebrate the release of Rose Mountain with two shows at Brooklyn's Knitting Factory serving as Night 3 of the 2015 Don Giovanni Records Showcase. Both shows include Priests, Tenement, and Vacation. Both shows are sold out.

Aidan's Garage Palace in Sea Bright celebrates its 1-year anniversary on Sunday with a show featuring Teenage Halloween, Have A Good Season, Corrina Corrina, and more. 

Have fun. Stay warm. Start thinking about spring. It's coming. I can feel it.
