This September, Dr. Martens kicked off a series of live shows at Brooklyn’s Baby’s All Right, which has highlighted a variety of incredible talent.
Crumb and Combo Chimbita launched September with a bang, followed by a fuzzed-out noisy night with Weeping Icon andYVETTE. After that (sadly now broken up) CENDE played a raucous show, with Canadian icons The Bernard Lakes coming up next. Lastly, Philadelphia’s Cayetana rounded out the month with a packed house.
October saw an amazing set of shows, kicking off with Canadian duo Whitehorse, and went right into a sold-out show with Phoebe Bridgers, who left the crowd enraptured. On 10/19, a trio of the most buzzed about NYC bands- PILL, Bodega, and HEAVEN – hit the stage for a free show, and the month wrapped up with an eclectic night with Tess Parks, HEATERS, and Breanna Barbara.
November started off with Seattle’s Briana Marela taking the stage for an intimate show on 11/1. The next week, The Sherlocks from the UK put on an incredible set, showing why they are one of the most talked about up-and-coming British bands around. On 11/16, Brooklyn’s own Guerilla Toss played a raucous night to a full house. To close out the month with a bang, Atlanta’s StarBenders, along with local outfits Yaasss and Uni, took the stage by storm for a jam-packed free show complete with an evening of glitter and glam (and a python).
December began with Luke Rathborne, with a show that marked his return to the live stage. Next up was the always incredible Cold Specks, who brought together a combination of soulful introspection mixed with keep pop sensibilities. To wrap up the week, Kweku Collins performed to a sold-out house, showing why he is one of the most buzzed about artists coming up in hip hop right now. Check out the photos below, and make sure to stop by Baby’s All Right for our next FREE live concert, with Mal Blum & The Blums, Kino Kimino, and Hiccup on 12/28.
