Tom Gallo is the host of Look At My Records! on Radio Free Brooklyn.

Fall is officially upon us, but the change in season can’t stop the awesome gigs that are happening. Here’s some of the best happening this week:

Wednesday, Sept. 25

Strangepride, Gorgeous, Noods at Alphaville, 8 p.m.


Brooklyn’s Strangepride just dropped a brand new record, We’ll Take It From Here, a classic indie-rock sounding record that features the singles “Hoops” and “The Ungluing.” They’ll be returning from a short September tour in support of the album with support from Gorgeous, a ripping experimental-rock duo, and Noods, a gleeful sounding indie-pop quartet.

Thursday, Sept. 26

Gold Connections, Ryan Laetari, War Violet at Trans-Pecos, 6 p.m.

Charlottesville, Virginia’s Gold Connections shared their latest EP, Like A Shadow, this past March and the band is taking these sentimental sounding tracks on the road. Ryan Laetari, a solo artist who also plays guitar in psych-pop outfit Coco Verde, shared his latest album Big Boy in June, a nice collection of Americana-inspired pop. The folk-soul of War Violet will get the evening started in the opening slot.

Friday, Sept. 27

Dressy Bessy, Big Eyes, Kevin Hairs at Alphaville, 8 p.m.

Indie-pop mainstays Dressy Bessy released their seventh studio album, Fast Faster Disaster, back in June on Yep Rock Records. The record features several delightful pop anthems, similar to the songs that earned the band notoriety in the early aunts. Also performing are Big Eyes, who released their jangly and poppy fourth record, Streets of the Lost, back in April and Kevin Hairs, who typically plays stripped-down, jangly sets with a drum machine.

Saturday, Sept. 28

Desert Sharks, New Myths, Nevva at The Broadway, 8 p.m.

Desert Sharks

Desert Sharks earned some high praise from Bushwick Daily for their highly anticipated debut album, Baby’s Gold Death Stadium. If you’ve been waiting to hear it, you won’t have to wait much longer, as the record drops on Friday and the band will be promptly celebrating on Saturday night at The Broadway. This special release show also features performances by New Myths, who dropped their latest single “Living Doll” this past summer, and indie-punk trio Nevva.
