The CBGB Festival offers up two killer free shows today in the city: Guided by Voices, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, The War on Drugs and Cloud Nothings at Central Park; and Superchunk, The Hold Steady, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah and more in Times Square. What's an indie rock fan to do?

The CBGB Fest still hasn't posted set times for Times Square, but Superchunk drummer Jon Wurster tweets, "Chunk on one hour and ten minutes before tooth hurty."

There's an official afterparty for TPOBPAH at ping pong club SPiN NY (48 E. 23rd St.) with Pains' Peggy Wang and Connor from The Drums as DJs. 7:30 - Midnight. Free.

Today is also the first MoMA PS1 Warm-Up with Light Asylum and TRUST (who also play MHOW together on Sunday [7/8]), along with Nguzunguzu, Todd Terry and Arca ft. HBA.

Cake Shop tonight is having a benefit show tonight to supplement their PledgeMusic drive. Entry is sliding scale $12 - 20 with a secret headliner ("you won't want to skip out on this one.") Any guesses who's playing?

Oh and you may have heard, it's supposed to get very near 100 degrees today. Do hydrate. Nature may hydrate too, with a 30% chance of thunderstorms from 4PM on.

What else?

Free shows at Brooklyn Museum from 5pm.

At first I thought BV was just being a dick by teasing / withholding set times for today, but now I get the feeling that the fest is deliberately not saying.
Maybe not allowed by the city? Same way they weren't allowed to announce lineups until last min?

What a shitshow.

For those going to Roger Waters, plan accordingly so you can get high as possible for this "once in a lifetime" show:)

1) 1st set 9-10pm
2) intermission 10-1025pm
3) 2nd set 1025-1125pm

Have fun! Last night's show was better than MSG gig...

Am I the only one in this city that sees the Hold Steady as profoundly overrated? I saw them today in Times Square, sympathetic audience, nice weather, and they were pretty underwhelming. I think that it's Craig Finn - take his whining away and they could be an OK shore bar band. But I dunno - nothing special. Am I the only one that observes this?

Superchunk killed it, like always.

Hold Steady Fans reminds me of the IT guys in my office. You figure it out. Oh and you're welcome!

Posted by the big gopper | July 8, 2012 7:42 AM

^ 7:42 is right - Hold Steady fans make more money, are better dressed, and are uniformly smarter than him. The question is why someone would want to point this out to the world - a bit beyond calling a spade a spade, amirite

Hold Steady Fans remind me of the kid who grew up next door to me. You figure it out. Oh and suck my dick faggot ;-) !

Hold Steady Fans remind me of the letter "R". You figure it out. Oh and now I'm on a horse!

Hold Steady Fans remind me of the Mesozoic period. You figure it out. Oh's and bananas!

Hold Steady Fans reminds me of the movie Savages. You figure it out. Oh and you're not cool!

Posted by Anonymous | July 8, 2012 8:53 AM

The only fans nerdier than Hold Steady fans are They Might Be Giants fans. You figure it out.

Posted by Anonymous | July 8, 2012 10:22 AM

12:43: Hold Steady live without a keyboard player and 2 guitarists sounds like what you are describing, I agree. They were very good live with Franz Nicolay and their second and third albums are classics but it seems they are in a decline.

The toilet ran out of paper, and my ass itches. You figure it out.
