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

We’re in the midst of a heatwave in New York. That also applies to the gigs this week in Bushwick. They’re hot!!!! Here are some good ones to check out:

Wednesday, July 24

Henry Something, eCOCOBOYS, Pleasure Island, Golden West Service at Alphaville, 8 p.m.

Local lo-fi bedroom pop act Henry Something will headline a diverse lineup that also features both heavy and soft sounding acts. The fiery garage rock sounds of quartet eCOCOBOYS are counterbalanced by the lounge inspired surf grooves of Pleasure Island, an act that you’ll dig if you’re into the recent output of Dent May and Part Time. Openers Golden West Service will provide a dose of classic sounding indie rock to get things started.

Thursday, July 25

Future Punx

Future Punx, Seedy Films, Timo Lee at The Sultan Room at The Turk’s Inn, 9 p.m.

New wave post-punks Future Punx are back in town after spending the month of June on the road with The Mystery Lights.
