California X at DbA in 2013 (more by Vladislav Grach)
Cali X

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

California X, Sleepies, LVL UP, Washer @ Shea Stadium
This is a great bill all around, with Amherst's sludgy California X, Brooklyn's punky Sleepies, the Built to Spill-esque indie rock of LVL UP, and lo-fi rockers Washer.

Alan Licht & Brian Chase, Mary Halvorson & Joe Morris @ Issue Project Room
Alan Licht is the guitarist in Lee Ranaldo and the Dust, and Brian Chase is the drummer of Yeah Yeah Yeahs, but when they're not playing with their main projects, they also make experimental music together. Their collaborations have resulted in the debut album, We Thought We Could Do Anything, which they celebrate at IPR tonight.

Guards, The Dig, Modern Rivals, Grassfight @ Brooklyn Night Bazaar
Guards, whose frontman Richie Follin is the brother of Cults singer Madeline (and a former member of that band), make indie pop as accessible as Richie's sister's band, but more driving and anthemic. Like all BK Bazaar shows, entry is free tonight, and there's also not-free food, drinks, shopping, and games.

Chris Brokaw, Insect Factory, Dan Friel, Wavepool, 10000 Idiots @ Death By Audio
Chris Brokaw (of Come and Codeine), just opened the two Bob Mould shows in NYC, and now he plays two headlining solo shows here. This is the second, and sees Chris collaborating with guitar experimenter Insect Factory.

DRI, Mucky Pup, Sh*tkill, Morder, Apathy @ The Studio at Webster Hall
Crossover thrash vets DRI and Mucky Pup are no strangers to playing shows together, and they'll do so again tonight, which was rescheduled from November.

Justin Vivian Bond @ Joe's Pub
A regular in NYC's drag scene for years, and once a member of the duo Kiki and Herb (with Kenny Mellman, who is now in The Julie Ruin), Justin Vivian Bond continues his show, The Drift, at Joe's Pub tonight. The show "creates a new, free associative, collage of spoken word and song inspired by the story of Karen Stone, a retired actress who drifts from one space to another -either in her mind, in couture or in bed." He does it again on 3/27, 3/28, 4/10 & 4/11.

Nicky Mao, Rose Kallal, YOU., New Modern Nail @ Trans-Pecos
Dig into the experimental sounds of Nicky Mao, Rose Kallal, YOU. and more at Trans Pecos tonight.

The Allman Brothers Band @ Beacon Theatre
Pioneers of jam bands, and progenitors of blues and southern rock, The Allman Brothers continue their multi-night run at Beacon Theatre tonight.

Houndmouth, Rayland Baxter @ Bowery Ballroom
The folk-rockin' Houndmouth kick off their two-night NYC run tonight.

Pink Floyd Laser Spectacular @ Wellmont Theatre
Paramount's Pink Floyd Laser Spectacular, which "[presents] the music of Pink Floyd, as you have never seen it before," returns to the NYC-area for showings in NJ tonight and Long Island tomorrow.

hmmnm i guess the real "X" isn't the California X that's absolute bullshit , not to mention there was already an X japan that was very famous also. That's really gimmicky and no matter how great they are they will never be taken seriously in my book.

"Please stop five questions."

Agree. If they're gonna flood the site with that nonsense, at least do it with bands that people might actually have heard of or at the very least give a shit about.

Man, it's seriously been one of the lousiest weeks and weekends for music here in New York. Don't remember SXSW ever creating such a lull in NYC in the past years. Sigh.

If you have never seen the Allmans at the Beacon, you have no right to pass any musical judgements
