You want to know what the music scene in New York City is like, then you came to the right place. Here is where you will find reviews of the best shows, CDs and bands doing it right in the Big Apple.

In the CD reviews, we are going to be honest and to the point. The info you want to know - quick. In that vein, there is STAND OUT and GET OUT. These are what we thought were our favorite and least favorite tracks. Not the best and worst, but the ONE SUPREME TRACK that you have to hear. With the bands' permission there will also be an MP3 of that track as well. Take a listen.

That is about it. Read, enjoy and tell us what you think.

FIXERs new ep gives you everything you expect to hear from them. Great guitars and soaring vocals all slammed on top of heavy bass and pounding drums.

This is the boys latest offering and it shows how hard they have been working to move up the food chain.

Bend, shows off some of the live feeling that has crowds packing some of New Yorks better clubs everytime they play.
