Local Natives @ Governors Ball 2013 (more by Dana [distortion] Yavin)

Browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows. Here are some highlights...

Big Freedia's World Twerking Record @ Herald Square
New Orleans' queen of bounce will try to set the World Record for most people twerking in one place. It goes down at 11:30 AM so if you're in the neighborhood, it's sure to be a spectacle.

Spider Bags, Liquor Store @ Cameo Gallery
Spider Bags will be in NYC for two nights with fellow North Carolinians Superchunk this week, but before that you can catch them rocking out in a more intimate (read: sweatier, rowdier) environment tonight. Liquor Store should warm things up pretty well too.

Torres, Frances Cone, Wet @ Glasslands
Torres has a real knack for songwriting, and the alt-folk of her debut record which came out earlier this year is far more accomplished than many recent debuts of its kind. She and her band bring it live too, so if you're a fan of this kind of stuff, tonight's Glasslands show is not to miss.

Q-Tip, DJ Spinna, Nile Rodgers @ Output
Tonight's edition of Q-Tip's #Offline party is being billed as "A night celebrating the music of Nile Rodgers - with guest of honor Nile Rodgers." We're not sure what that means exactly, either.

Nothing Changes w/ Future Blondes, Skullcaster @ Home Sweet Home
Ring in midweek the dark way with tonight's edition of Nothing Changes featuring the industrial-leaning sounds of Future Blondes and Skullcaster.

Carcass, Immolation @ Saint Vitus Bar
British death metal legends Carcass released Surgical Steel, their first album since reuniting, this year (and first since 1996), and it's no nostalgia act; this is one of the contenders for metal AOTY. So naturally there's a ton of excitement behind this week's NYC shows, both of which are sold out. Tonight they're at Saint Vitus and tomorrow they'll be at the less satanic Gramercy Theatre.

Ex-Wife, Vomit Face, The Can't Tells @ Shea Stadium
New Brunswick post-punks Ex Wife released the solid New Colors LP earlier this year, and tonight they return to Brooklyn for a show at Shea Stadium.

Local Natives, Lucius @ Terminal 5
It's been almost nine months since Local Natives released Hummingbird and their trajectory continues to climb. They played Governor's Ball back in June and tonight's the second of two nights at T5.

Earth, Wind and Fire @ Beacon Theatre
Soul/disco/R&B titans Earth Wind & Fire are playing their second of two nights at Beacon. Who wouldn't want to hear "September" in September?

Chick Corea @ Blue Note
Jazz fusion pianist Chick Corea, known for collaborations with Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock, and others, continues his 6-night run at The Blue Note tonight.

Graham Nash @ City Winery
The "Nash" in Crosby, Stills & Nash, one of the songwriters in '60s pop group The Hollies, and a reputable solo artist as well, Graham Nash continues his three-night run at City Winery tonight.

Chris Thile @ Rockwood Music Hall
Best known as The Punch Brothers' mandolin player, Chris Thile indulged his classical side on the just-released Bach: Sonatas and Partitas, Vol. 1.

Electric Six, My Jerusalem @ The Bell House
Detroit's Electric Six have been making tongue-in-cheek, id-overload, disco party rock for over a decade. They'll release their ninth album, Mustang, on October 8.

I'm Turning Into, Couches, Beach Arabs, Termite @ Cake Shop
In addition to quality local bands like I'm Turning Into, tonight's Cake Shop bill features San Francisco's Couches who make grungy slacker pop. You can stream their new 7" below.

Big Terrific @ Cameo Gallery
Max Silvestri hosts the free weekly comedy show in the back of Williamsburg's Lovin' Cup. Tonight's line-up features Joe Zimmerman, Barry Rothbart, and Aparna Nancherla.

11:08, this is a music blog. Take your politics elsewhere.

what time did local natives go on last night?

Calm down 11:56, he has as much right to say what he wants as you do. So, just relax.

Chick Corea for sure.

Ted Cruz? I like his earlier records. He does do long sets live though.

11:56, it's too late. We the people are taking our country back on November 19th:

5:46 - the phrase "batshit crazy" comes to mind, when reading what you just posted.
BTW, your boy Ted Cruz was born in Canada, dipshit. He was ACTUALLY born there. So, if you can say that he's a "natural born citizen" because his mom was a citizen, then Obama is also a natural born citizen by the same rules whether he was born in Hawaii (as he ACTUALLY was), or born in Kenya like you nut jobs keep trying to purport.

So I guess that I can cross you and 11:56 off my RSVP list for my November 19th coup?

Posted by Rev Pat | September 26, 2013 8:09 AM

8:09, no don't cross me off the list. I'll be sitting on the sidelines eating popcorn, watching and laughing as a bunch of fools try to stage a coup. Your AR15s are no match for drones and tanks.
