Pissed Jeans @ MHOW, 2013 (more by Dana [distortion] Yavin)
Pissed Jeans

Psalm Zero
Psalm Zero

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

Psalm Zero, Yautja, Geryon, Kevin Hufnagel @ The Acheron
Psalm Zero is the new band of Andrew Hock (Castevet) and Charlie Looker (ex-Extra Life), but past projects aside, Psalm Zero stands up on its own as some pretty great out-there industrial metal. Nashville sludge/grind bashers Yautja make this an excellent double bill, and the first half of the night should get interesting too with Geryon (also featuring a member of Castevet) and Kevin Hufnagel (Dysrhythmia, Vaura, Gorguts).

Pissed Jeans, Purling Hiss, Pampers @ Knitting Factory
Pissed Jeans continue to perfect their blend of My War-era Black Flag and Stooges fury, and at this point they're really a force of their own. There's great support too, coming from the grungy Purling Hiss and local art punks Pampers.

Sheer Agony, Sam Kogon, Comfy, Band Practice @ Silent Barn
Montreal's Sheer Agony make the kind of perfect powerpop gems that are exquisitely crafted but also sound tossed off. If you like The dB's or early XTC (or the first Shins album), these folks are absolutely worth checking out. Stream a few songs below.

Teengirl Fantasy, L-Vis 1990, Lafawndah, Brother Bruno (live vox by Aggressiva), Aurora Hala @ Cameo Gallery
There's a lot of dancey goodness on tonight's Cameo bill including the psychedelic dance of Teengirl Fantasy, Night Slugs co-head L-Vis 1990, electronic eccentric Lafawndah and more.

Cerebral Ballzy, Black Sheep @ Gramercy Theatre
This is an interesting double bill with the NYC punk of Cerebral Ballzy and the NYC hip hop of veteran duo Black Sheep. Genre differences aside, both acts should be pretty fun tonight. UPDATE: This show has been postponed.

Jay Farrar @ City Winery
As frontman for Uncle Tupelo and Son Volt, Jay Farrar is alt country royalty, with a cannon of dusty, heartfelt, world-weary songs. This is his second of two nights at City Winery and tickets are still available.

IV (w/ Colin Stetson, Trevor Dunn, Greg Fox), Daniel King, Jeremiah Cymerman @ The Grand Victory
This should be a pretty interesting: sax great Colin Stetson (Arcade Fire, Bon Iver, etc) teams up with bassist Trevor Dunn (Mr. Bungle, Secret Chiefs 3, Tomahawk), and drummer Greg Fox (Guardian Alien, ex-Liturgy) for a trio set tonight. Who knows what all three of these very talented and very different musicians will pull off as one unit?

The Brought Low, Deep Swell, Kings Destroy @ Saint Vitus
Brooklyn trio The Brought Low make the kind of fist-pumping hard rock that may not always be popular but never goes out of style. Doom-y crew Kings Destroy open the night.

Boytoy, Dinowalrus, Little Racer, Slonk Donkerson, Sports Guy @ Baby's All Right
If you're looking to see a nice mix of Brooklyn's poppier indie rock bands, this is a good one: Boytoy are equal parts sunshine and sludge; Dinowalrus mix strong hooks with an ever-morphing litany of UK '80s/'90s influences; Little Racer write undeniably catchy choruses; Slonk Donkerson dip into '90s angst; and the night starts with Florida transplants Sports Guy.

Psychic TV, Tamaryn (DJ) @ MoMA PS1
This event is a book launch for PTV domo Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, featuring a live performance from Psychic TV and Starred, with a DJ set from Tamaryn, a reading by Jarrett Earnest, and films by Orridge and Leigha Mason.

Hannibal Buress @ 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.

Mrs. Fuller today sends me beautiful sunrise pictures of Seoul Korea from her business trip, pictures of children playing in a park, her lunch which consisted of Somandu, Gamja Jon and Jap chae - filter-less pictures of mostly dumplings and noodles (always the BROOKLYN VEGAN at heart). She expounds upon the aching beauty of the Far East. Her friend from London and herself in Wayfarers ambling up a road by their hotel on their fixies (rentals? I need to ask about that) against gleaming shafts of glorious orange and violet Korean sun.

And then she has the nerve to ask me what am I doing this weekend.

Well, my love, as you can see from the list our neighborhood stalwarts BV have put together. I am doing absolutely nothing.

Sunday will consist of me sitting around watching Dr. Who in our apartment on Netflix and living vicariously through Mrs. Fuller's text and picture messages.

Or should I say soon-to-be Mrs. Fuller. My better half indeed.

^ is there any hummus in Korea? Could you ask her? Us regular BVers would really be curious to learn if there is some exotic Far East recipe.

Did spin media bankruptcy cause BV to lose all their promised $500,000?

I'm almost 50 years old. This would have blown me away when I was younger. It's still pretty cool, but a little contrived.
