Young Widows @ LPR, May 2013 (more by Caroline Harrison)
Young Widows

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

Young Widows, Norman Westberg @ Saint Vitus
Though Young Widows have only been around since 2006 and only have three LPs under their belts, they already feel like something of an institution -- noisy rock music is becoming increasingly popular, and their ventures into the field have been as strong as anyone's. This is the first of the band's two-night stand at Vitus where they'll be playing their new album, Easy Pain, in its entirety.

Gene Clark's 'No Other' tribute @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Spearheaded by Beach House's Alex Scally, members of Fleet Foxes, Grizzly Bear, Wye Oak, The Walkmen, Fairport Convention, Lower Dens and more pay tribute to and recreate the former Byrds member's 1974 solo album. This is the second of two sold-out NYC performances.

Palehound, Dead Wives, Flagland, Advaeta @ Shea Stadium
Ellen Kempner's indie rock project Palehound has a new single out next month which shows her songwriting and arrange talents blossoming. She headlines this all-around solid show that also features New Haven, CT band Dead Wives (ft. Mike of Speedy Ortiz), and local up-and-comers Flagland.

Tom Odell, Vensaire, The Good Kids @ Brooklyn Bowl
This week's instalment of the Sunday It's a School Night parties features UK singer-songerwriter Tom Odell, who won the Critics' Choice Award at the Brit Awards. Like Coldplay? His piano-powered style could scratch that itch.

IYEZ, Primovanhalen, Nightdogs, Kelsey Lu @ Death By Audio
Brooklyn's IEYZ have been kicking around for a while -- last year's Psychic Jungle would be a good choice for your next freakout. You can stream it below.

Kim Ann Foxman, Andrew Potter @ Le Bain
This show at The Standard Hotel's chichi club is a release party for dance act Pleasure Planet's appealing new EP, Animals. (Stream some of it below.) Hercules & Love Affair's Kim Ann Foxman provides vocals for the EP's title track and performs tonight with one half of PP's core, Andrew Potter.

Pyrrhon with Ron Anderson's Pak, Couch Slut, Brandon Seabrook @ The Grand Victory
Get tech-death weird with Pyrrhon and Couch Slut at this tiny and underrated Williamsburg spot.

Jupiter Boys, Jetu, Dead Night @ Baby's All Right
For those looking for something a little different, you might want to head to Baby's tonight: Jetu are also known as The Blind Dates who are avant-dude Gary Wilson's backing band (he played NYC last night), plus drone-goth duo Dead Night and new-ish trio Jupiter Boys.

Kidrockers w/ Spires, TEEN @ Brooklyn Bowl
Familes that go see indie rock together stay together, and you can help keep yours intact at this Tyke-friendly day series that this week features pysch-pop fourpiece Spires and TEEN.

Comedy Night @ Knitting Factory
Big league comedy talent (Chris Rock, Louis CK, etc) show up regularly (and unannounced) for Hannibal's very popular free comedy show at Knitting Factory's front bar. Get there early.

Reagan Youth, The Memphis Morticians, Twin Guns, Emergency Break, Dust Angel @ Bowery Electric
While guitarist and band co-founder Paul Bakija is the only remaining original member (Trey Oswald is the current lead singer, Dave Rubinstein died in 1993), Reagan Youth's fiery songs helped soundtrack the '80s NYHC scene.

Book of Love's show at Bowery Ballroom was canceled.

The Grammys
While the Grammys rep for actually giving awards to those who deserve it is dubious at best, the telecast is nonetheless a spectacle that at the least producers think is important. Among tonight's bombast: a Beatles reunion (Paul & Ringo); Daft Punk with Stevie Wonder, Pharrell and Nile Rodgers; and a closing performance will featuring Nine Inch Nails, Queens of The Stone Age, Dave Grohl, and Fleetwood Mac's Lindsey Buckingham.

Museum punk show had to be a good time. Better than my bar shift.

Uh by the way, think that already happened.

Was it really necessary to write '(Paul & Ringo)' after 'Beatles Reunion'?

Was there any other configuration of said 'reunion' possible that this needed to be specified?

Gene Clark show was boring. Convention of beards and craft beer talk and chubby women.

Good show last night, Gene Clark.
On the way there I lost my wallet.
On my way home I found it.
Kinda crazy, huh?
Saturday nights were always lucky for me.

Did the line eventually go down at the AARP table at the Gene Clark show? Sure as fuck the line at the urinals did not. Old men must piss more than a teenaged girl on a bumpy car ride after drinking a 2L bottle of Mountain Dew.

Wow... You weren't kidding. The hummus was indeed amazing. I just ate a side order, and my energy levels have skyrocketed from Phyto-Nutrients locked within the chickpea.

Rangers / Devils game at Yankees stadium was rad!

Dawn of Humans at MOMA? Give me a break! They have just lost all respect and credibility. They are done.

Posted by a | January 27, 2014 8:27 AM

The first time I listened to this song was a year ago and I thought it was great. Both AQUARIUS and FLIP THE LIGHT are great songs. Kudos to you,
