J&R Music Fest brings Mario, Clipse, J Moss and Melinda Watts to City Hall Park. More free music there tomorrow too. Too bad about the rain which also might put a damper on Michael Jackson's birthday Saturday.

Joseph Arthur kicks off a trio of special collaborative gigs tonight at NYC's City Wintery, the first of which is with guitarist Joe Purdy. Joseph Arthur is also on the bill of that upcoming show with Frank Black at Music Hall of Williamsburg.

The ubiquitous NinjaSonik play Boys & Girls at Webster Hall with Klever, Alexander Technique and D.I.M.

Bruar Falls hosts Noveller, Burning Star Core, Ducktails and Talk Normal.

The Giraffes visit Mercury Lounge with Bone Gunn tonight. On September 26th they play with Goes Cube at Webster Hall.

These United States play two sets at Union Hall tonight. The first will be opened by Vandaveer, the second by Motel Motel.

After the Jump Fest is happening at Littlefield this weekend. Tonight you can see Dinosaur Feathers, Holiday Shores, Thing-One, My Teenage Stride and Javelin.

Zs, who are on the big bill at the BKLYN Yard (and/or Southpaw) tomorrow, perform tonight at Cake Shop with Mutating Meltdown, Skin Drink and PC Worship.

The Brooklyn Skill Share has a benefit at Glasslands with The XYZ Affair, Gunfight, Flower Mound, Mathew Snow & The Way It Was and Tenements. The flyer is below.

Outside Lands is going on in San Francisco and streaming.

Ryan Adams recently parlayed his theme-song-making gig at The Awl into a job as a video game columnist. The video from his first column, a review of Gorf, is posted below. Next week he makes art.

Matt & Kim played "Daylight" on Jimmy Kimmel on Wednesday, video below.

What else?

I don't know about resembling an SNL skit but I do know Matt & Kim got a killer audio mix on Kimmel...the kind rarely achieved on SNL. Listen to Kim's kick drum sound...awesome!

at one point near the end it seems as if Matt played a wrong note.
