Guillermo Sexo and Eldridge Rodriguez support Relations in Brooklyn

Hey New Englanders – if you’re in New York City this weekend, you’re in luck. Brooklyn’s Relations will celebrate the release of its latest full-length, Songbirds, with the help of Bostonites Guillermo Sexo and Eldridge Rodriguez. Guillermo Sexo’s latest record, last year’s Dark Spring, ranges from spacey (“Dark Spring”) to fuzzy (“Fall Lens”) and points in between. Expect fan favorites from across the band’s catalog, which now spans nearly nine years since the release of its first EP in 2005.

Meanwhile, Rodriguez (real name Cameron Keiber) will bring his deep voice and tracks from his latest album, you are released, which ranges from bluesy to psychedelic (see: “The Big Windup.”) The project and shows supporting it have kept him busy while his band The Beatings remains on hiatus.

If you’re looking for something to do in the Big Apple, show your support tonight at Shea Stadium in Brooklyn at 8 p.m. If you can't make it, you can still catch Keiber's solo set Saturday at 5 p.m. at Pianos in New York City. – Jake Reed

   

Boston Fuzzfest Hit Central Square in Cambridge This August

New England noise rock paradise this summer is as close as Central Square in Cambridge with Boston Fuzzfest's lineup sporting a lineup of Ghost Box Orchestra, The New Highway Hymnal, Nice Guys, CreaturoS, Guillermo Sexo, The Fagettes, DOZE, and Moniker. For only ten bucks at the Middle East Downstairs, Fuzzfest is a solid stand-in for Somerville's Deep Heaven Now Festival (not taking place this year), and this year's show will potentially dictate whether the fest will expand in 2014. From garage to indie to punk and all things fuzz, there's something for everyone, and it'll be interesting to see how Fuzzfest paces eight bands in one night. You'll never know unless you're there, right?
