The predicament for me is this: Do I see the bands I know I like? Or do I try and see bands i’ve never heard of before with the hopes of getting turned on? This is what i’ve decided: see the bands i’ve never seen and already like, then bands that don’t tour often or come to NYC, and then stumble around with my fingers crossed.

I’m most excited for: Best Coast, Mountain Man, Ducktails, Cold Cave, Fluffy Lumbers, Acrylics and Neon Indian. Also, the world premiere of “Searching for Elliott Smith.”

I’ll be heading to some day parties…some night parties…some late night parties. It’s gonna be exhausting! But fun, clearly. Follow my Twitter for updates. And of course, check here.
