Vivian Girls @ MHOW 2013 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Vivian Girls

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

Many of us will be staying home tonight to watch the 86th Academy Awards and will feature a few notable musicians nominated for Oscars: Owen Pallet & Will Butler for the Her score, and Karen O who sings (and co-wrote) "Moon Song" from that film -- she's performing it at the awards. Fellow best song nominees U2 and Pharrell will perform too. 7 PM on ABC.

Lots of good show options for those who don't care about the Oscars:

Vivian Girls, Potty Mouth, Shellshag @ Baby's All Right
It's the end of an era: Vivian Girls will go their separate musical ways after tonight's show, with two great openers to boot. Sold out.

Public Service Broadcasting, Broods, Miriam Bryant, Johnny Stimson, Jason Eldredge DJ set @ Brooklyn Bowl
Last here for CMJ, these Brit AV geeks mix serious instrumental skill with perfectly synched samples and projections from old educational films. Also: corduroy. This is part of It's a School Night series which is free with RSVP.

Peanut Butter Wolf, J. Rocc, Jonwayne, Knxwledge @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Celebrating the new Stones Throw Records documentary Our Vinyl Ways a Ton, this tour features many of the label's biggest names. Catch the film at Indie Screen at 7 PM and then consider this show the afterparty.

Peaches, Eva and Her Virgins @ Olivia
Having recently toured her film Peaches Does Herself, this show, at the very intimate Prospect Heights venue, is being billed as "Mike Madrigal Presents 'Peaches' Live In Brooklyn Up Close & Personal."

Hiss Golden Messenger, Zachary Cale @ Mercury Lounge
Hiss Golden Messenger makes a similar kind of raw, personal folk to the forgotten-then-remembered singers of the late '60s (Nick Drake, Vashti Bunyan, etc) and though he may not have the same story, his music can be just as intense.

Sean Nicholas Savage, Tonstartssbandht, Greenfield, Clay Adakazaam (DJ) @ Signal
Prolific and a little eccentric, Montreal artist Sean Nicholas Savage mixes genres with abandon, as heard most recently on last year's Other Life, which came out on Arbutus Records (home of Grimes, Doldrums and more).

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.

Tonight's HSY / Greys / The Beverleys show at Death by Audio has been postponed due to car trouble.

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

For laughs, check out the NYC Comedy calendar too.

Who's the douchiest douche we know? Car guy douche!

Poor Midwestern transplants, always think they have a right to say what they think is good for you. Did you ever see those people out where the busses don't run, you know - car drivers? Deep fry everything, sit home eating deep fried corn wrapped potato chips, just glorifying in their obesity and sedentary lifestyle. Poor Midwestern people, so warped in their minds.

I'll walk, thank you.

City people laugh historically at shlemiels in their cars waiting in line for 3 hours to cross some bridge ... to come to the city! Silly rabbit, logic's for city people!

Posted by City Truth | March 2, 2014 9:34 PM

I hate that car guy too.
