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

Gene Clark's 'No Other' tribute w/ members of Beach House, Fleet Foxes, Grizzly Bear, The Walkmen, Lower Dens & more @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Tonight is the first of two nights at Music Hall of Williamsburg where former Byrd Gene Clark's 1974 solo album, No Other, will be performed in full by this all-star indie lineup.

Beach Party, Tei Shi, Charlie Waters Quartet, Big Ups, The Range (DJ), Au Revoir Simone (DJ), Lee Bannon (DJ) @ Baby's All Right
While their name might elicit groans from some, LA good time rockers Beach Party have the approval of Ty Segall who produced a couple of their recordings. We dig Big Ups too. This show is a benefit for the Ali Forney Center for homeless LGBT youth.


Ævangelist, Oak, Artificial Brain, Disparish @ Saint Vitus
Our heavy sister site Invisible Oranges is presenting this show, which should be a good one. Don't miss Disparish, which features Andrew Hock of Castevet, and who make their live debut tonight.

Neutral Milk Hotel, Elf Power @ BAM
After releasing one of the most classic indie albums of all time with In the Aeroplane Over the Sea, Neutral Milk Hotel pretty much disappeared with frontman Jeff Mangum choosing to remain mostly out of the public eye. A few years ago, Mangum began touring again, but it wasn't until late 2013 that Neutral Milk Hotel returned to the road. Their reunion tour finally comes to NYC this week and this is the third of five shows here.

Har Mar Superstar, Computer Magic, Not Blood Paint, The Static Jacks @ Brooklyn Night Bazaar
Brooklyn Night Bazaar offers weekends of local artisan shopping, gourmet eats, beer and wine, ping pong, black light minigolf and music all under one Greenpoint roof. Tonight's line-up is headlined by the ever-entertaining Har Mar Superstar. Should be a fun one. Free.

Adventure, Jimmy Whispers, Laser Background, Cloud Becomes Your Hand, Celosa @ Death By Audio
Baltimore beatmaker Adventure headlines this night of dance-friendly fun.

Blondes, MGUN, Rem Koolhaus, Contakt, Space Jam, C-Sick, Mayster @ Glasslands
NYC dance duo Blondes can be found playing local shows pretty often, and tonight's as good a chance as any to catch them.

Hippy, The Hairs, Dead Painters, Rad Dreams @ Muchmore's
Fans of indiepop will likely dig this bill featuring hummable tunes, and mostly-tuned guitars.

Ed Askew, Pure Horsehair @ Union Pool (2 pm)
Ed Askew is a certifiable folk legend whose excellent (and often underappreciated) material dates back to the late '60s, and it's quite the treat that we still get to see him perform today.

R. Stevie Moore, Gary Wilson, DJ Dubious Luxury @ Glasslands
Godfather of home recording R. Stevie Moore is guaranteed to put on a quirky show, but for some (especially those who like Ariel Pink), he'll likely be very inspiring too. Meanwhile, fellow cult legend Gary Wilson was making ahead-of-its-time new wave in the '70s and has also made fans of newer musicians like Beck and Questlove.

Heliotropes, Clouder, Backwords, The Meaning of Life, Young Oprah Winfrey @ Radio Bushwick
Power-riff trio Heliotropes lead the way tonight at one of Bushwick's newest, slickest venues.

Toys and Tiny Instruments, Leda @ Cake Shop
Playing songs with kazoos, plastic guitars and other miniature gear would be a total novelty if the songs weren't as good as they are.

Gramatik, Tokimonsta, Gibbz @ Best Buy Theater
Though TOKiMONSTA got her start in the Flying Lotus beat scene, she's usually on more EDM-oriented bills these days, like tonight's with Gramatik.

The Echo-Friendly, Samson, Jack & Eliza @ Coco 66
Brooklyn big-pop duo The Echo Friendly wrap up their January residency at Coco 66 tonight.

Dr. Dog, Saint Rich @ Terminal 5
Philadelphia's popular roots pop band, Dr. Dog, spent a good portion of the fall touring with The Lumineers and are now on their own supporting 2013's B-Room.

For all of tonight's shows, and tomorrow's, check out our full NYC show calendar.

I just want to know if the sound was shittyagain last night at BAM again last night

NMH show last night was great. Sound was great. You, 7:23am are a troll.

Posted by Anonymous | January 25, 2014 7:45 AM

NMH was a fun time last night but you need to relax 7:45 the sound wasn't good at all. If you go to the number of shows that I do you would know that.

It would take a good sound engineer about 3 hours to work up a good sound reinforcement strategy for the Gilman Opera House, and then another 2-3 days to install the right speakers and the place would sound just fine. Go see a musical play at any theater on Broadway and see how it's done. Of course, put a monkey behind the wheel of a Ferrari and you would have a nice car wreck right quick too, so an actual sound man is essential.

If you think 8:33 is a troll then maybe you are the one with the chip on his shoulder, Mr. Early Waking Irony. Just saying.

So I've got 4 tickets, but a couple people can't be there until 7. If I get there at 5 will they give me all 4 wristbands or do the people all have to be present?

Posted by Anonymous | January 25, 2014 8:50 AM

@8:50
You can pick up all 4 tickets and get your wristband, then get on line and your friends can find you at 7 and get their individual tickets and then get their wristbands and join you on line. Easy peasy, but you would be the shlamazzel that gets to freeze his ass off in line, so I hope that your friends are appreciative.

Posted by Joaquin | January 25, 2014 9:35 AM

Why anyyone who declates the sound bad is being called names here? And from the number of people who thought the sound at the first show was fine, I get that NMH crowds are especially deaf. My source, who's working for the production and had the best reserved seat in the house, said sound was painfull.

And that's not the first rock show at BAM. You don't need to be a speakers spreading genius to get a good sound there. This is just a sloppy production by someone who has done nice things before with Wordless, but is way over his head this time.

Posted by ME | January 25, 2014 9:50 AM

The only people of color at NMH shows are those handing out wristbands and showing white people to their seats. These shows are like Klan rallies for Millennials.

Posted by Anonymous | January 25, 2014 9:53 AM

^maybe blacks just aren't smart enough to get NMH's music. it's not Rich Homie Quan, after all. Little more complex. Yeah.

Sound was just fine. Elf power was more than bearable. Having read yesterday's equivalent of this thread I went in with incredibly low expectations and was rather pleasantly surprised. People need to chill out.

Mangum looks like a homeless person now though -- what's up with that? He kinda of looks like Goatboy and Jack White had a child.

Great show. Nostalgia cash grab, sure, but a really really enjoyable one.

^ I hope that you tipped the people of color that served you last night. You know they work really hard to make sure you white kids have a nice time, and they have mouths to feed. Of course Jeff is giving them nice tips too, off of the generous merch sales and all, not being a greedy bastard like those banks he likes to complain against with the hippies at Zuccotti Park. Of course he is.

"Why anyyone who declates the sound bad is being called names here? And from the number of people who thought the sound at the first show was fine, I get that NMH crowds are especially deaf."


Another imbecile, or probably the same troll from yesterday's thread, who lacks the ability to comprehend irony. This is why it is so obviously a troll. Oh you think the sound was bad and are crying cause you are being called names but it is ok for you to turn around and dismiss the many people who correctly thought the sound was fine or very good.

SMH at the stupidity of trolls.

Oh and this hilarity-"My source, who's working for the production and had the best reserved seat in the house, said sound was painful"

The source of course being the voices in this clown's head.

I was at bam Neutral Milk Hotel on Thursday. The sound was fantastic. I am audio engineer and I know this. Trust me. The problem of mine is Brooklyn. It's being such a dirty, ugly place with ugly architecture and streets. Maybe I think this because I live in Genoa IT? But I don't like the environment. There is no debate on the audio engineer practiced on Thursday night concert.

Posted by Anonymous | January 25, 2014 12:03 PM

This sounds like the same one angry old man from the Friday thread dismissing the dozens of people that reported the poor sound at BAM. So sorry to hear about your dementia though, I wish I could say it will get better but truth be told you're kind of a lost cause gramps. Do try not to hit too many kids with your cane as they bump into you dancing tonight, we all know how old people hate that.

Posted by Anonymous | January 25, 2014 12:30 PM

I had a pretty good time last night. I thought it sounded best when it was just Jeff alone with his guitar. Kind of makes me want to have seen one of the solo shows he did. I concur that the sound seemed a bit muddy to me. As far as the poster yesterday who said that those people that thought this have bad hearing I can assure you I do not.

I live right around the corner and I'm stoked on this new chill spot. The soy lattes are the best I have had in NYC! You know good coffee is few and far between in these parts. I also had the hummus wrap yum! My bf had the turkey pesto sandwich, he liked it but it was hard to get your mouth around all that bread. Oh and the owner seems like a really nice guy always smiling.

I remember these old Arian master race alkies that used to live at this bar that would serve us when we were underage, they used to say how excellent their hearing and eyesight were as some kind of justification of their crazy ideology. Never mind that they were alcoholic racists, but they had shitty hearing too, because everyone had to keep repeating everything they said to them.

I guess what I'm saying is that this thread is making me reminisce.
