Miniature Tigers headline a show at Knitting Factory tonight, which is one night before they open for The Morning Benders at Knitting Factory which is four nights before they go out on tour with Free Energy and Jukebox the Ghost, which is three days before they are back in NYC with that tour to play Bowery Ballroom

The Grates open that show at Knitting Factory tonight. I guess the Australian band is still living in NYC.

The Luyas are playing a private/secret loft show tonight, so maybe check them out at one of their other three shows this week instead, while still getting your Canadian fix with Valleys who play Glasslands tonight.

The Capstan Shafts returns to town.

The Specials return to Terminal 5 (they played there last night).

Greg Ginn & The Texas Corrugators and Cinema Cinema were bumped from Maxwell's tonight by the rescheduled Los Campesinos!/Cymbals Eat Guitars show that's now canceled anyway.

Micachu and the Shapes will be replacing the volcano-canceled Mary Onettes at the Mercury Lounge tonight with Mon Khmer.

The Jarboe show at Union Pool tonight with Bezoar and Chaos Majik is cancelled because she is stuck in Italy.

Bad Lieutenant was scheduled to play Webster Hall tonight but the volcano made them cancel all US dates (including Coachella).

Real Estate and Family Portrait played a show at Monster Island the other night. Videos from that show by Ian Perlman are below...

What else?

what time did the thermals come on last night

Posted by Anonymous | April 21, 2010 10:38 AM

I can't remember exactly, but I believe they went on after 10:30 and played till about midnight.

The opener was on just after 9, and Past Lives probably 9:50 or so.

Thermals went on at 11 and played til 1215 w a one maybe 2 song encore. Great show too!

While you Fauxhemians were out last night, I was finger popping your girlfriend. I wiped your plaid shirt on my ass.

@ 1:33 wow, you used a word created by a website that's primarily read by the people the word is meant to describe, that has about as much inherent meaning and relevance as the word it was meant to replace (none). to insult a group of people that judging by your blog tastes, you are clearly part of. pat yourself on the back buddy, way to go!

I prefer "Trustafarians" anyway.

I think 'fauxhemian' is pretty funny actually, and spot on for the majority of scenester lemmings these days
