THOM YORKE plays Barclays Center (with Flea) tonight/Friday with James Holden who then opens for Thom's good friend Four Tet in Williamsburg on Saturday, two days before Thom Yorke's good friend Flying Lotus plays Le Poisson Rouge (where Thom Yorke last played NYC, though Thom will be in Virgina by then).

ARCADE FIRE play Saturday Night Live (with Tina Fey) and a show after SNL Saturday, and then maybe will be around for the premiere of the Spike Jonze movie they soundtracked (along with Karen O) as part of the New York Film Festival, or related events (though "Her" doesn't actually premiere until the end of the film fest which runs through October 13). Superchunk, led by Arcade Fire's Merge Record label boss Mac, are also conveniently in NYC for the weekend.

JACK WHITE is on the lineup of Sunday's "Inside Llewyn Davis" event at Town Hall, another NY Film Fest related event (that Patti Smith, Colin Meloy of The Decemberists, Conor Oberst, Joan Baez, Marcus Mumford, Gillian Welch & David Rawlings, Punch Brothers, and the Avett Brothers are also playing) (if you miss it, it's being recorded for Showtime).

BONUS: Guy Picciotto (Fugazi), Jim White (Dirty Three), T. Griffin (The Quavers), Efrim Manuel Menuck and Sophie Trudeau (Godspeed You! Black Emperor), Jessica Moss (Thee Silver Mt. Zion), and Mira Billotte (of White Magic) are all at BAM Saturday night, Massive Attack, Horace Andy and Cocteau Twins singer Liz Fraser are at Park Ave Armory for multiple days, John Zorn is having a birthday party with Mike Patton and more, Eugene Mirman is having a comedy festival, Jimmy Cliff is at Webster Hall, and Stevie Wonder, Kings of Leon, Elvis Costello and more are playing in Central Park Saturday.

The possibilities are endless.

Watch the Arcade Fire's SNL teaser video and a teaser for the post-SNL show, below (see if you can decode the clues in Win's shirt to discover the location of Thom, Win and Jack's secret meeting)...

Or maybe the clues can be found in that Atoms for Peace puzzle.

Meg White was kinda dumpy, but she had a nice rack.

now this is the fun rumor-mongering, gossipy stuff BV used to have all the time. No more Timberlake -- more indie gossip!

That jack white photo where someone photoshopped cash onto his shirt isn't official and is intended to be insulting. Stay classy Brooklynbegan

"Stevie Wonder, Kings of Leon, Elvis Costello and more are playing in Central Park Saturday."

Since when did Elvis Costello get added?

I'm in NYC too, but you don't see me making a big stink about it!

Seriously though, what in the world has Meg White been doing since the White Stripes broke up?

Arcade Fire is NOT playing a show. There is a special, but it was filmed in Montreal a couple of weeks ago.

Meg is married to Patti Smith's son. Patti Smith is on the Sunday bill with Jack. Nothing like sharing the stage with the current mother-in-law of your ex sister/wife. Aaaaaakward....

Meg White is a gorgeous woman. Have always had a crush on her! I def think we'll see a white stripes reunion

Yeah, if Elvis Costello had been on the bill with Stevie Wonder, it might've been worth suffering through John Mayer and the rest.

1134 He IS on the bill. Short acoustic set. Too bad he didn't replace Mayer or Kings Of Leon or both!
