As mentioned, San Francisco's Burnt Ones (who were in Austin for SXSW) will be hitting NYC this weekend, playing Death by Audio on Sunday (3/23). The band's new album will be out next week via Castle Face and they should have copies at the merch booth too.
Also on the bill are their tourmates, Indianapolis' Raw McCartney. Not unlike Burnt Ones, they make the sort of scuzzy psych John Dwyer is releasing on Castle Face. The group's cassette from last year, Introducing, is loaded with groovy, blown-out trips to the other side, and you can stream the whole thing below.
The DbA show also features locals Rips who don't have much of an internet presence beyond a SoundCloud page with one song on it. That song, though, "Gone," is superior shoegaze guitarpop (stream it below) so if you're going on Sunday, trying and get there in time to see Rips as well.
Another local band, Stay at Home Dads, are also on the DbA bill. All Raw McCartney dates are listed, along with streams, below...
