Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, who kindly provided the wallpaper design you see on the site today, play a sold out show at Bowery Ballroom tonight in support of their new album Hysterical (out today). Polica open.
Speaking of backlash, Vivian Girls headline Knitting Factory tonight (and it's not even sold out). Widowspeak and Amy Klein open.
Not sure where the love/hate scale currently lands on Deerhoof (I think they were always kind of love em or hate em). They headline MHOW tonight. Mick Barr and White Suns open. Not sold out.
The new Tiger Flowers EP is out today via The Path Less Traveled Records. Stream it below.
