Hospitality

Public Service Broadcasting @ BV-CMJ 2013 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
PSB

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

Hospitality, Air Waves @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Having bettered their debut with their terrific second album, Trouble, Hospitality's tour circles round back to Brooklyn tonight.

Public Service Broadcasting @ Mercury Lounge
Last here for CMJ, these Brit AV geeks mix serious instrumental skill with perfectly synched samples and projections from old educational films. Also: corduroy.

Vivian Girls, Waxahatchee, Juan Wauters @ Death by Audio
It's the end of an era: Vivian Girls will go their separate musical ways after this weekend's two sold-out farewell shows. Tonight's is the location of some of their earliest shows, and is with Waxahatchee who coulda sold out DbA on their own.

Mike Doughty @ City Winery
This is one of Doughty's "Question Jar" shows where audience members can submit questions (guess where) that the former Soul Coughing singer then answers in betweens songs.

Surfer Blood, Fort Lean, wake up @ Glasslands
Florida poppy indie rockers play a sold-out show tonight with locals Fort Lean and wake up. It's their second of two Brooklyn shows.

Honduras, Dead Stars, Beiju, The Gradients @ Radio Bushwick
Honduras bring a lot of different influences to the table. A little garage, yes, but there's '80s/'90s British indie too. While it may not be anything you haven't exactly heard before, Honnduras write very hooky songs and, as importantly, the bring a real energy to the performance. Tonight's a release party for their new EP.

Porches, DRGN KING, Frankie Cosmos @ Baby's All Right
One of the many local dates for NYC "bummer pop" band Porches, and this one is double the fun because Frankie Cosmos (who plays in Porches' live band and is joined by Porches frontman Aaron Maine in her own live band) is on the bill too. Early show.

Caspian, Junius, A Storm of Light, Advaeta @ Brooklyn Night Bazaar
It's a triple attack of epic tonight with the titanic post-rock of Caspian, the atmospheric/heavy Junius and metal bashers A Storm of Light (fronted by Neurosis' former visual artist Josh Graham). Brooklyn indie trio Advaeta don't exactly fit the theme of the bill, but they're worth catching as well.

Laurel Halo, M.E.S.H., Bill Kouligas, Physical Therapy @ Baby's All Right
On her albums, Laurel Halo nails a mix of forward-thinking IDM and left-field art pop. Her shows are known to combine the two or rely most heavily on one for the evening. Let's see what surprises she has in store for us tonight.

Mirah, Susie Ibarra @ Merkin Concert Hall (Ecstatic Music Festival)
The Ecstatic Music Festival continues tonight, bringing together alt-singer/songwriter Mirah with contemporary composer/percussionist Susie Ibarra.

There's also some other good local bands playing tonight, including Bluffing, Turnip King & more @ Silent Barn and Flagland, Lost Boy?, Washer & more @ Shea. Or you could catch Le1f and JD Samson DJing at Glasslands.

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

For laughs, check out the NYC Comedy calendar too.

Nice job ignoring Mike Gordon at Webster Hall. Guess it's not cool enough for BV, despite being a sold out show at a venue you regularly cover.

"Nice job ignoring Mike Gordon at Webster Hall. Guess it's not cool enough for BV, despite being a sold out show at a venue you regularly cover"

With any luck and fingers crossed that BV continues to ignore any mention of Phish or any of their solo work

Just awful.

And who cares if it's sold out.

-Selling out Webster is not a big deal

-Just because a ton of idiots go to see something does not mean it needs to be covered or mentioned.

City life is harder than living in the Midwest like me. Plus, Midwest police are slower than city police, and it's much easier to convince Midwest boys to not tell the police about the special games we play in my car.
