Tonight is the first of a pair of Dead Can Dance shows at the Beacon.

Empire Records is screening for free along with performances from Life Size Maps and La Big Vic at McCarren Park. Sadly, it is the last Sumerscreen of the season. Where did the summer go?

Zs celebrate their tenth anniversary with a show at 285 Kent tonight. Congrats guys.

Big Freedia cancelled her appearance aboard the Rocks Off Cruise scheduled for tonight.

Baroness are no longer on board for tonight's House of Vans show, but you can still catch Turbonegro, Doomriders and Night Birds.

Yeasayer made a video for "Longevity," off their new album, Fragrant World. Check it out below. Their tour brings them to NYC for a show at Central Park Summerstage next month (9/12).

Screaming Females made a video for their song "It All Means Nothing" in which Marissa Paternoster's shredding skills expand to human flesh. Zombies! Watch it below.

Speaking of Screaming Females, you can see big prints of them in action and other artists at the BV photo exhibit "480 Pixels" which is currently on display at 92YTribeca through September 6. Gallery hours today are till 3 PM.

What else?

Is Empire Records worth watching?

Posted by Anonymous | August 29, 2012 11:45 AM

^ Not really.

^^ I don't know about the movie, but Life Sized Maps are the shizzle. I would go just to see them.

Don't know what I hate more...Marissa Paternoster's voice or close ups of ripping flesh.

TURBONEGRO AT HOUSE OF VANS!

There is no other option for tonight. This isn't rocket surgery.

Turbonegro fans = Juggalos

"TURBONEGRO AT HOUSE OF VANS!

Well I can already gauge the intelligence level of Turbonegro fans, considering it's "rocket science" and not "rocket surgery" (whatever the hell that means).

I can already gauge the sense of humor of those who don't like Turbonegro, for thinking I seriously thought "rocket surgery" was a thing.

Posted by Anonymous | August 29, 2012 2:21 PM

Oh, so the Turbonegro fan fucks up a simple globally known English slang phrase and then blames the fuck up on the guy who points it out?

Bet you're a big Turbonegro fan.

I am quite the turbonegro fan, Gov. Romney. I like to party and understand my own humor which is derived from mashing up two well known overused cliches "this isn't rocket science" and "this isn't brain surgery." Since you may become the most important person in the world soon I will spend the time to explain jokes to you.

But seriously seeing Turbonegro tonight, that's not rocket surgery. That's just A PARTY!

^ this guy has some issues

Posted by Anonymous | August 29, 2012 3:08 PM

oh boy - people. this was a louis ck joke. rocket surgery. that's what he was quoting.

Posted by Anonymous | August 29, 2012 3:26 PM

^ Too bad the guy couldn't even come up with his own material there, then.

No worries, 2:57. Insecure 2:21 (who's also unoriginal in the fact that he had to copy my way of wording my comment - surprise, surprise!) was just trying to backpedal with square wheels there.

(Note: If you're gonna blow a gasket about a correction, you're insecure)


But whatever, I'm probably being too harsh. Enjoy Norweigan delight!

How do you know I'm not the originator of Rocket Surgery from the Louis CK thread? I'm the one who told all those assholes whining about their jobs to get out of their cubicles and take a cab.

Or maybe this is all because I want to promote my new band Rocket Surgery who will be playing at Arlene Grocery at 1am on a Tuesday night.

Or maybe, just maybe, if you google "rocket surgery" in quotes you will see over a half million hits. It's a joke that has been out there in the public consciousness for a while.

Regardless Turbonegroids > Juggalos. THE PARTY STARTS NOW!

How do you know I'm not Louis CK?

Posted by Anonymous | August 29, 2012 4:18 PM

You know I'm not the president because he's busy on Reddit.

Posted by Anonymous | August 29, 2012 4:27 PM

Either way, you're still insecure.

Come on, guys, this isn't brain science.

The only winners tonight are those who get to see Turbonegro.
