I'm making an effort to post "What's Going "On" first thing each day. As it scrolls down the page, you can always find it by clicking the "What's Going on Today?" button in the homepage sidebar. If things come up throughout the day, they'll be added to the post or the comments (which of course everyone is always encouraged to do as well).

Kurt Vile plays a free set at tonight's Fader Bowl at Brooklyn Bowl, along with Small Black and DJ Rezound. Vile will be back in February as part of his tour with Fucked Up.

The Mountain Goats and Final Fantasy play Webster Hall tonight. Tomorrow it's the Bell House. Both are sold out. Tickets are still available for the Webster Hall show.

Final Fantasy also appears on Dinner With The Band tonight. Video of a new song played on the episode, below...

I Slept With Joey Ramone is a new book by Joey Ramone's brother Mickey Leigh and Legs McNeil who are both appearing at Barnes & Noble Tribeca (97 Warren St.) at 7pm today ("The evening will feature a Q&A, book signing and an intimate discussion with the authors. Plus: Witness a candid one-on-one interview between authors Mickey Leigh and Legs McNeil.").

The Loom appear at Bruar Falls tonight. If you miss them, you can also try and see them when they open the late Rural Alberta Advantage show at Mercury Lounge on January 9th.

Legendary pianist McCoy Tyner, who got his start in John Coltrane's band, bring his trio for three nights at Blue Note with alto saxist Gary Bartz.

What else?

Posting events in the morning is great. There's definitely times that I've wanted to throw something together with friends, and I've been hitting refresh at 4pm, hoping the listing pops up with enough time to convince people.

Good looks, BV!

Yes! Thanks for posting "What's going on" in the morning. Much more useful than later in the day!

Mickey Leigh & Legs McNeil. I don't know the story, but on face value...they seem to be doing the get something for nothing book deal?

So the book goes...."I spread my legs while I drank and did drugs..."

No? tell me why I am completely wrong. Please don't get mad...I really would like an explanation. I mean they were no 'Nancy' or I would have heard of them, eh?

An orchestra is playing David Bowie songs at Mercury Lounge.

i gotta say, i preferred the event posting later in the afternoon. then it's all in front of you. if you're so lazy as to not check oh my rockness for your evening activities, you're too lazy. having the what's going on at the end of the day made me feel like it was a recap, and then you don't have to scroll all the way back down the page just to find it... or on busy days, the previous page! doesn't make sense to me.

So the suggestion box works :-)
This is great to see early in the day before plans have been made for the night....

Thanks all for the feedback!

"and then you don't have to scroll all the way back down the page just to find it..."

As mentioned above, there is now a prominent "What's Going on Today" button on the top of the page to make it easy to find no matter where it is.

Anyone know the set times for Russian Circles tonight? Don't want to bombard the box office with calls.

^Who cares if JTB is really playing tonight, as long as there is a free Cobb Salad, I'm there!

uh, no.

"he was a major contributor to the music of the Ramones"
