Happy 2015, everyone! We're really in it now, and shows are kicking back in after a slightly sleepy holiday break. And now...it's a new year! A new time for shows and bands and songs and, well, we've all had our reflections and made our resolutions, so forget it. Let's just start 2015 right, shall we?
|Here's a picture from last week at Human Head to get you back in the showgoing mood.|
[[WEDNESDAY, January 7:]]
Let's kick 2015 into gear with the sweet and not-so-sweet sounds of The Rizzos (SZ episode forthcoming). They're going to play you the songs that make you forget it's Wednesday and think you're in high school. Come hang with them and friends Nuddhist Monks, Ghost Punch at Don Pedro, 8pm, $5 LINK
[[THURSDAY, January 8:]]
I hate to be the one to break it to everyone, but this weekend is going to rule. Daytime, nighttime, absolute, uncontrolled rockage. Take this Thursday as a mini-break to prep yourself. No SZ shows on the docket.
[[FRIDAY, January 9:]]
Pack your Friday night with Metal, Noise, Hip Hop, Punk and DJs. Brooklyn Wildlife is hosting 12 Days of Art 2015 with Turn Me the Fuck Up 7.

Shake off your hangover and start the day with brunch, but only if by brunch you mean going to check out The Black Black (again!) playing a day show w/ Dead Wrestlers, Heavy Negatives, The Challenged at ABC No Rio, 3pm, $7–12 sliding scale LINK
Saturday night, get your dark post-punk kicks with a killer lineup featuring Dialogue from a Silent Film (Brian LaRue, SZ #30) w/ Pan, Sol Ardour, Village Psychic, Princess Tiny and the Meats at Bar Matchless, 8pm, $8 LINK
