Sharon Van Etten @ GoogaMooga 2013 (more by Dana [distortion] Yavin)
Sharon Van Etten

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

Cheap Time, Games @ Mercury Lounge
Cheap Time's latest album, Exit Smiles, is sneering, snarling punk not too far off early-'80s-era The Fall. This is the first of two NYC shows for these Nashvillites and tonight is with local powerpop band Games.

Sharon Van Etten, The Fakers, Lone Wolf, Kyp Malone, IRAN @ Union Pool
Tonight's show is a benefit for Sharon Van Etten's friend and musician Jeffrey Kish (who's played on her records) to help cover medical costs. $20 at the door.

Mt. Royal, Brazos, Incan Abraham, My Body @ Brooklyn Bowl
It's another It's A School Night party, tonight featuring Baltimore band Mt. Royal who feature onetime Celebration singer Katrina Ford. If you like Blonde Redhead you might want to check them out -- the show is free with RSVP.

High Highs, Double King, Ludwig Persik @ Baby's All Right
Ethereal Australian duo High Highs will be trying out new songs tonight, plus the elegant pop of Ludwig Persik and Double King.

Hector's Pets, The Ar-Kaics, 1-800-BAND, The Chickenhawks @ Death By Audio
If you dig later-'70s power pop, 1-800-Band recall The Nerves and Shoes.

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.

Kanye West @ Nassau Coliseum
Kanye's Yeezus tour has been quite the spectacle, and it should impress even the biggest of the "hip hop sucks live" naysayers. He brought it to NYC for four shows in November, but if you missed it then or just need to see it again, he's in the surrounding area for a few dates this month, including tonight's Nassau Coliseum show.

Schoolboy Q @ Le Poisson Rouge
Schoolboy Q's new album, Oxymoron, has some of his hardest flow and most detailed production, but not at the expense of the element of fun he's always had. You can experience the new album performed live in its entirety tonight if you were able to get in via @NPRHipHop. For the rest of us, it will stream live at 8 PM on NPR First Listen. You can catch Q at a more conventional show when his tour with Isaiah Rashad and Vince Staples rolls through NYC in March. You can also stream Oxymoron in full on iTunes Radio.

The Sword, Big Business, O'Brother @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
It's an excellent double dose of stoner rock at MHOW tonight with riff-lovers The Sword and Big Business.

Ed Askew, Abhay Singh and friends, Bodega Bay, Beta Boys @ Trash Bar
Ed Askew's 1968 album, Ask the Unicorn, is an absolute psychedelic folk masterpiece, and lucky for us he's continued to record sporadically over the years, but is now very active. Even if the opportunities to see him have increased lately, any chance to see him is one worth taking.

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

Is it just me, or do other guys feel a tad bit awkward when a man is dipping a larger baby carrot into the hummus platter?

"Todays "new yorkers" are cruel to be kind. Too many shows on public transportation. Public tranport is a drug for little boys and stressed out women. The only tickets i pay for are speeding!"

Johnny Winter at BB Kings. Then off to Union Pool. Rest of you losers stay home!

^ if your going to union pool, you should definitely make a pit stop at Oasis and grab a side order.

This site used to have good memes, and actually be funny. Now I wouldn't even venture a guess what it is - but it's not good or funny.

As a prominent member of The Hummus Underground, it is not our mission to be comical. I was simply recommending to the gentleman that is going to BB Kings that it might be a good idea to stop at Oasis to reload his energy by grabbing a side order. This was meant to be helpful, and that is all.

Fuck yeah I want to jerk off soooooo fucking bad lol. Big Dane in the MIX. Hahahahahahahaha. Ballin the fuck out. Suck my fucking ass out lol. #beatingoff #jerkingoff

^ seems like fancy car man doesn't know about Oasis.
And that's unfortunate, because I'm sure he would gain immense benefit from the Phyto-Nutrients.

"Save your money for a car so you don't have to ride the subway like/with dames."

Leaving "dames" aside for a second, is this clown's object to avoid women?

Methinks the sausage doth protest too much.

Look palsy, it's 2014. If you want to grab another guys ass or work SVGH then there is able opportunity and you don't need a large capital investment to do so. Maybe ask a buddy if he'd be up for a little shrimping. Plenty of metal shows on here, so pick one and have at it.

As far as "dames", I'm thinking you like to sing show tunes around the house, true? Too close to home?

Wait I don't get the new car joke. Can someone explain?

The car joke is boring.

Posted by Anonymous | February 24, 2014 8:36 AM

Is it even a joke, really?

Posted by Anonymous | February 24, 2014 8:54 AM

I think it may be intended to be by the poster. I think that should tell you all you need to know right there. There are a handful of people on the interwebz that think that they can create memes by sheer will, and they would be horribly wrong.

sausage is no joke

I thought it was hot when SVE put my shirt on after we boned but now when she wears that same dirty t-shirt on stage it's just gross.
