Priests @ MHOW, 2013 (more by Wei Shi)
Those Darlins

Juan Wauters @ Pier 84, 2013 (more by Chris La Putt)

You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...

Priests, Lazyeyes, Truthers @ The End
DC post-punks Priests are a pretty intense band, both with their aggressive, upfront lyrics and the fact that their music keeps the "punk" in "post-punk." Their live show is really where it's at too, and you can get a taste of that tonight.

Juan Wauters (of The Beets), Household, Las Rosas @ Baby's All Right
Whether solo or with The Beets, Juan Wauters brings an idiosyncratic worldview and intensity to his songs and performance. He's a NYC original. This is a release party for his new album, N.A.P. North American Poetry, which is out via Captured Tracks.

Vaz, Roomrunner, Multicult, Big Ups @ Death By Audio
It's gonna get loud at this show, which includes the noise rock of Vaz, the grungy Roomrunner and their fellow Baltimoreans Multicult, and the caustic post-hardcore of Big Ups.

Those Darlins, Diarrhea Planet @ MHOW
These two Nashville bands both love rock 'n' roll, but in very different ways. Those Darlins kick around in the leather boot-wearing territory, whereas Diarrhea Planet don't really care what they wear, because the rage of their live show will have them sweating all over it anyway.

Donuts Are Forever ft. DJ Jazzy Jeff & more @ Brooklyn Bowl
It's February, which means J Dilla tributes. This one features DJ Jazzy Jeff and a bunch of others, and all proceeds benefit the Donuts Are Forever scholarship fund.

Whiskey Bitches, XNY, Unicycle Loves You, Haybaby, Adult Dude @ Radio Bushwick
There's a bunch of local bands on this bill, but the one we think is most worth catching is Adult Dude, who have a great mix of Dinosaur Jr-style rock and Superchunk-style punk.

Elway, Sad and French, Chumped, Dr. Sillybones @ Saint Vitus
Colorado punks will open for The Lawrence Arms at Gramercy Theatre soon, but if you want to see them headlining a smaller place, tonight's your shot. Also don't miss Brooklyn's Chumped, who keep pop punk real.

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.

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

For laughs, check out the NYC Comedy calendar too.

I wish Grimes was playing tonight. She's the best.

I would like to see a local iPods show -- that is a band that has REAL diversity from track to track.

It is embarrassing but I actually laughed at that stupid iPods joke...

Posted by Anonymous | February 16, 2014 3:07 PM

I laughed too but not proud of it. Not the first time it has been on here..

I told you heartless people many times before how the mention of this iPods thing gives me severe mental agitation and yet you continue to do it. You are all horrible people. You are totally I sensative, and with malice aforethought you inflict mental cruelty upon me. My lawyer says that it would not be very hard to get to the bottom of this were it to happen again, and I have not spoken up again until now, thinking that it was one bad apple. But I feel like I will need to do something as soon as the holiday is over. You are all so mean and thoughtless, I hope that you got a real nice laugh while people arw being put through such pain knowingly.

It frustrates me, too. But some people seem to think it's funny (at least two commenters here) . . . so live and let live, I guess? At the end of the day, it's just a little joke. ; )

Wait. Priests are actually terrible. What's wrong with you people

Are the iPods a real band? There have 2 be copyright issues with that...

Google it, bitch.

4:48 you need to relax. It's just a cute little joke. It's not that big of a deal.

Posted by Anonymous | February 16, 2014 7:14 PM

Agree with 7:14...

Posted by Anonymous | February 16, 2014 7:16 PM

5:29 - Don't be a dick, the other poster is expressing something a bit more than "frustration". How would you like it if someone kept punching you in your Q-tip physique over and over, despite your protests of the bruises you were getting? Willing to bet you'd start crying like a bitch. So, maybe you should learn some fucking manners.

Agree with 7:17. It seems like the iPod thing is causing 4:48 genuine emotional stress. It seems over the top to me, but also sincere - why risk it, if it might cause someone genuine suffering? Not worth it.

Posted by Anonymous | February 16, 2014 7:31 PM

I think 5:29 presented a fair both of both sides.

Posted by Anonymous | February 16, 2014 7:39 PM

I think 7:39 like 5:29 is thinking purely selfishly and seems quite consciously callous to the pain and suffering that another person is clearly going through.

Thank you 7:17, 7:31 and 7:45. It's good to know that there are still some people on here that have a little compassion and sympathy for others. I wish that I didn't have the reactions that I do, but I can't help it, it's troubling. Thank you.

I agree. It's just a little joke. Live and let die, I say. You only live twice, so you might as well get an unexpected chuckle from a healthy little joke every now and then. Tomorrow never dies, but it does guarantee another cute tiny microscopic iPods joke. Skyfall.

Posted by the iPods | February 16, 2014 7:57 PM

It's just a little joke, idiots!!! I don't find it funny, but I appear to be in the minority . . . which doesn't refelct well on ya'all.

Posted by Anonymous | February 16, 2014 7:57 PM

The iPods joke always makes me smile :)

Yeah life is all about doing whatever the fuck I want without any regard for any other people.

Ain't that right, you dick sucking faggot?

I have to admit 8:18 made me chuckle

There's no need to stoop to the level of thoughtless and selfish people. If they have no decency and not sense of the harm they bring others by their callousness, they will get theirs soon enough. Nothing like being kicked really hard when one is down to bring a sense compassion. Either that or a subpoena to appear related to a punitive damages suite. That usually shuts idiots up right quick :-)

Posted by Anonymous | February 16, 2014 8:25 PM

Wow, this just went to a whole nother level. Why don't we all dial it back a notch and just chill on both sides.

No more legal threats and no more iPods nonsense? Seems fairest to me, as a casual reader.

8:18 did make me laugh. I'm not proud to admit it.

I am a lawyer and this is a VERY strong tort case here. At the same time, I do recognize that the iPod comment is very popular . . . will be interesting to see how this shakes down!

I can without qualification verify that there are at least 3 unique people participating in this thread prior to your post 9:54.

So, might want to add another layer of tin foil to your helmet, we can still implant thoughts into you.
