There are a whole lot of good shows tonight. Which one are you going to?
While the biggies (Youth Lagoon, Django Django) are sold out, there are lots of good smaller options: Toronto's Moon King (and more) at Shea Stadium; fellow Toronto shoegazers Beleifs at Death by Audio; and Scotland's PAWS (who were good at Glasslands last night) at Cake Shop.
There's also the killer bill of Andrew WK, DOM, Cities Aviv, Cool Serbia (record release) and Montreal's Blue Hawaii at 285 Kent. That show starts with an open Brooklyn Brewery Bar and tickets are still available.
You can also start your night with an early show featuring The Babies and Nude Beach at Knitting Factory which is free with RSVP
