Canyons and Justin Miller & Jacques Renault appear at a People Don't Dance No More party aboard Rocks Off Concert Cruise. Canyons was last seen over the weekend at Central Park Summerstage.

Nighthorse plays with a Tee Pee Records special guest headliner at Pianos tonight.

Brits Friendly Fires and The xx play Music Hall of Williamsburg. Last night the show was at Le Poisson Rouge.

Ida Maria visits Maxwell's with Franz Nicolay (who plays Union Pool tomorrow). She'll be back in the NYC-area on September 16th with the Perez Hilton tour, which today added Semi Precious Weapons to the bill.

San Diego's Lights On have a series of NYC shows this weekend. One is a Saturday Union Hall show with Beach Fossils and Blind Man's Colour (who play tonight at Cake Shop). Catch Lights On tonight at The Annex with Gliss, Purcane and Automatic Children.

Two nights of Animal Collective in Prospect Park begin tomorrow.

Jazz combo Mostly Other People Do the Killing play at Zebulon tonight.

Ben Perowsky Quartet plays a CD release show at Barbes for his new disc, Esopus Opus, out on Skirl Records. That CD deals in largely-accordion-driven jazz. Tonight, Perowsky (drums) will be joined by "Trevor Dunn (Mr. Bungle, The Melvins, Electric Masada) and Matt Mitchell on piano (member of Tim Berne's new sextet), and saxophonist/clarinetist Chris Speed."

Tori Amos nears the end of her Abnormally Attracted to Sin-supporting tour tonight at Radio City Music Hall.

"Next to nothing is known at the moment about "These Are My Twisted Words," the purported new Radiohead song that mysteriously appeared online last night. Unlike "Harry Patch (In Memory Of)," which Radiohead surprise-released almost exactly one week prior (hmmm), this one seems to have materialized on various illicit music hubs without any official announcement or acknowledgment from the band." [EW]

Radiohead's new mystery song "These Are My Twisted Words" is posted below, as is a clip of Bonnie "Prince" Billy on Tim & Eric's Music Express segment.

That CATcerto is better than anything Philip Glass has done in the past twenty years.

Blondie rocked.Debbie hot as ever.

One thing I found weird was the mass exitus of hipsters and geezers right after the first song.

Like genuine nyc punk rock n roll was too much for their delocate ears.The pushing and shoving and hitting with those giant beach chairs all through the Blondie set got on my nerves.

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
