Tonight's Actress show at Cameo was canceled due to Visa issues.

Lightning Bolt at 285 Kent tonight is sold out but you can still catch them at ATP NY on Friday (same night as Frank Ocean).

Onetime SNL castmember (and Rentals keyboardist) Maya Rudolph is doing Prince covers with The Roots at Brooklyn Bowl. Advance tickets sold out, but there are still "limited tickets available at the door" so get there early if this interests U (to put it like Prince).

Tom Shillue's Funny Story returns to Brooklyn Brewery tonight with frequently shirtless Dave Hill, Rob Cantrell, and Garrett Oliver. $10 gets you in and a beer.

For those with a dark streak, Glasslands is hosting a great line-up of goth-influenced bands, including San Francisco's The Soft Moon, Los Angeles' Cold Showers and locals ERAAS. Tickets are still available.

For the more garage-minded, Otto's Shrunken Head hosts tonight Philadelphia's The Tough Shits (9 PM), Denton, TX's The Bad Sports (10 PM) and depraved mask-wearer Nobunny (11 PM). Nobunny and Bad Sports will play again tomorrow (/21)at Bushwick's Living Bread Deli with Xray Eyeballs and Liquor Store.

Oberhofer added a last-minute show tonight at Ran Tea House (right next door to 285 Kent and Glasslands) with Darlings, Astral Locket, Kissing is a Crime and Lazyeyes. $7, doors at 8 PM. Have you seen that T-Mobile ad where Oberhofer plays on a roof? You can watch it below.

Malka Spigel's new album, Every Day Is Like The First Day, features contributions from Johnny Marr, Stereolab's Andy Ramsay, as well as her husband (and Wire guitarist) Colin Newman. You can stream the whole thing below.

Lightning Bolt should change their name to The Gimmicks

anyone know if The Chick Pees are playing soon?

Posted by Anonymous | September 20, 2012 3:28 PM

3:28, The Chick Pees aren't a band, it's just something people say because hummas is made from chick peas.

There, now you don't have to ever ask about them again!

You're welcome, Internet!

Oh man, I was excited for Lightning Bolt, but now the geniuses who comment on this blog say they suck? Fuck, now my whole night is ruined, anyone want my ticket?

^ ahahaha! Nice!

Yeah, too bad I can't make it to LB tonight. You guys all have fun for me. Definitely some of the most crazy fun shows I've been to with those guys playing.

Signed,

Some other guy

what time did Bon Iver go on last night?

@4:05 show some respect! That "square" is your King!

Do they still do the whole "playing on the floor" thing, and the "have-20-or-your-friends-lock-arms-around-you" thing?

That was super annoying when I last saw them. Basically ensuring no one can see.

Have you actually ever been up that way? It is more like 3 to 3 1.2 hours with traffic. Enjoy! i saw them play in a beautiful church in the city last time.

Lightning Bolt set up on the floor with people crowding around is one of the best live music experiences I've ever had. I guess they set up on stage more these days. They'd still be awesome if you haven't seen them.

BV missed Tedeschi Trucks Band at the Beacon. Night one last night, with Leon Russell. 2 more nights to go. Good times!

TTB is the shit. Good call 10:17. If I wasn't going to ATP I'd be all over that.
