I can't believe you forgot about 20 piece rock choir that is BANG CAMARO! They are headlining MHOW tonight with three other bands. Prepare to get your face melted...this band rocks hard.

WNYU is going to have a table set up at the Yeasayer show. Stop by and pick up a free t-shirt!

This seems like a long shot, but I know Wolf Parade just played last night in Jersey, and they don't have any shows listed for today. Any rumors of them doing a "secret show" in the city tonight? Wishful thinking...
