Highlights of last night’s Holly Miranda show at LA’s Bootleg Theatre were “Waves,” “I’d Rather Go Blind,” “Every Time I Go To Sleep,” and “Slow Burn Treason.”

On Thursday August 5th, three bands played a free show in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park for the Celebrate Brooklyn Festival.
Holly Miranda, Joan as Policewoman, and Metric took the stage — Holly Miranda and Metric were definitely the best bands of the evening.
Highlights were Holly Miranda playing “Waves” and “I’d Rather Go Blind,” with Kaki King joining in on guitar, and Metric playing an acoustic version of “Combat Baby” as the last song of the encore.
Part 1 of “How to Discover New Music” (read it here) was about music podcasts.
Part 2 (here) was about attending concerts.
Part 3 is about interviews and playlists.
Read, listen to (audio), or watch (video) interviews with artists you like, especially interviews that focus on having artists make playlists of music that they like.
Example #1: I discovered the song “Saturday” by Rachael Cantu and “5 Years Time” by Noah and the Whale by listening to Ben Lee’s podcasts and reading a playlist he made.
Example #2: Holly Miranda tweeted a link to “It’s Okay” by Land of Talk. A playlist by Lizzie Powell of Land of Talk featured the song “Re: Stacks” by Bon Iver and “One Man” by Eulogies:
Example #3: An interview with Brian Wilson and Zooey Deschanel led me to discover “This Will Be Our Year” by The Zombies.
Celebrate Brooklyn! is putting on free, outdoor concerts this summer in Prospect Park.
Norah Jones played the opening night show a few days ago, and some highlights of the line-up include The Swell Season (July 30), Sonic Youth (July 31), Holly Miranda (August 5), and Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings (August 7).
