Geronimo, who in the midst of a short tour, join up with Pollution and Hex Machine at Death By Audio tonight.

Spindrift are in back on stage tonight at Cake Shop, playing a second show in NYC after supporting Hopewell last night at Union Pool. The band professes to be influenced by Carnival Music, Vampire Soundtracks, Norwegian Classical Folk Music, Swamp Blues (Lonesome Sundown), Outer Space, Henzig and ICE-T O.G. among other things, but I hear the gunslinger moments of Ennio Morricone on acid tabs. Electric Tickle Machine and Werewolves support. - Black Bubblegum

Comedian John Roberts kicks off his residency at Comix tonight alongside special guest David Cross. - Klaus Kinski

West Palm Beach, Florida's post punk beachcombers Surfer Blood play the last of their four NYC shows tonight at, appropriately enough, The Surf Bar Bruar Falls (it moved) in Williamsburg. I spaced and forgot to put them in TWII this week -- worth checking out. - Bill Pearis

Ex-Guided by Voices guitarist Doug Gillard plays an electric set at Maxwell's with Get Help and Eastern Anchors, plus comedy from Doug's sometimes-bandmate Dave Hill.

These United States just opened for Deer Tick and Dawes at the Bowery Ballroom. Tonight they headline a show at the Mercury Lounge with Motel Motel, Company of Thieves and Nick Howard.

Union Hall hosts E6 band Ladybug Transistor with Meeting Important People, Kevin Barker and Grand Salvo.

Insound's 10 year anniversary show comes to the Brooklyn Bowl, with a great lineup that includes Cymbals Eat Guitars, These Are Powers, The Drums and Real Estate. Real Estate, who go on first, at like 7:30 tonight, also played earlier this week at Vivian Girls' tour kick off at DBA. Two videos from their set are below...

New Peaches video for "Take You On" below...

Anybody who wasn't afraid of the NJ Transit to the Jersey Shore could've caught the amazing (free) Polyphonic Spree show that happened at the Stone Pony. Only about 150 people turned out for a damn great show. They had an option for attendees to text their request for the encores in to be played (which made for a great encore!) New songs, requests, and really good covers dominated the setlist, and I can't WAIT to see it at Webster Hall again in mid-September.

For those that missed it:

Polyphonic Spree, 8/27, Stone Pony, Asbury Park, NJ

1. Polyphonic Intro With Color
2. Maker
3. Hold Me Now
4. Live and Let Die
5. Tragiverse
6. Run to Me
7. Hanging Around (new version)
8. Running Away
9. She's a Rainbow
10. When a Fool Becomes King / Atlantis
11. Lithium
---
12. Soldier Girl
13. Light and Day / Sun Machine
14. The Championship

Smithereens ROCKED! Great show. Small crowd, they deserve better, but cool to be close in an intimate outdoor atmosphere in City Hall Park!
