this is the actual show flyer, and a screenshot of Little Shalimar's Facebook...
Union PoolUnion Pool
Union Pool

My first guess, based on multiple clues above, is The Phenomenal Handclap Band, though then I don't get what the secret is all about. Who do you think is playing with Little Shalimar and Tit n Twat at Union Pool tonight (7/12)?

UPDATE: Antibalas, who also plays Fort Greene Park today, makes much more sense (thanks Andrew)

Isn't one of the members of Little Shalimar related to one of the members of TV on the Radio?

secret guests are the most gimmicky fad in a while, 19/20 times it's sometime I couldn't give two shits about. Oh sure, I would never care to see a band called Reptar but THEY ARE SECRET GUESTS NOW??? sign me up!

Wha, the secret guest is Ted Leo? er, Yo La Tango?

11:45pm has a point. It doesn't sound like any of the actual possibilities are a band a mass amount of people would care about that they'd need to keep under wraps. That's the point of "secret guests." Not trick people into coming to the venue because the act is so shitty, no one would come if they knew who was playing.
