Maybe it’s the post SXSW migration back to New York or the supposed end of the dreary weather but there are a million fucking shows happening this month all fighting for your time and money. These are the ones that you should care about-at least according to me and some of our other editors. See you there.

*James Chance, Yaasss, Chorizo @ Bowery Electric — 21+ ($12), tickets and details here.

*The Garden, Tijuana Panthers, Cowgirl Clue @ Market Hotel — All ages ($16), tickets and details here.

*I’m conflicted about these two shows-on the one hand James Chance, Yaasss, and Chorizo is a solid fucking line up and Chance is an icon. The bands in do however play New York frequently. 

The Garden however are based in California and make rare appearances on the East Coast. Plus I’ve babbled on about them for eternity but as time passes they become increasingly less interesting to me.
