Action Bronson at Irving Plaza in January (more by Dylan Johnson)
Action Bronson

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

Action Bronson, The Lox, French Montana, Funk Flex @ Best Buy Theater
The currently new-and-exciting New York rapper Action Rapper teams with the once new-and-exciting New York rap crew The Lox to co-headline this show tonight. WIth support from French Montana and Funk Flex, it should be a fun night all around.

Dum Dum Girls, Blouse, Young Boys @ MHOW
Having released their poppy Too True earlier this year, Dum Dum Girls' tour hits NYC this week for two sold-out shows. (This is #2.) Don't miss openers Blouse who have turned into a formidable live band.

How To Dress Well, Forest Swords, Jefre Cantu-Ledesma @ LPR
R&B singer/songwriter How to Dress Well recently released a new single, "Words I Don't Remember," which sounded pretty promising that he only continues to get better. Psychedelic beatmaker Forest Swords opens tonight and he's worth catching too.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr., Chad Valley @ Webster Hall
Kitschy Detroit pop duo Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. go the extra mile to make their shows fun. Catch them tonight with UK dance act Chad Valley.

Bambara, Life Size Maps, Butter The Children, Hard Nips, Dead Stars @ Pianos
This is the final week of Life Size Maps' residency at Pianos and they've got a pretty solid line-up of bands, including the shoegazy Butter the Children and '90s-loving Dead Stars.

Nils Frahm, Douglas Dare @ Glasslands
Berlin-based composer Nils Frahm released Spaces last year Erased Tapes, a collection of minimalist piano pieces, lush synthesizer workouts and other sonically adventurous stuff that melds the classical and electronic-music worlds. He's playing two shows tonight  with his Erased Tapes labelmate Douglas Dare. The early show is sold out but you can still get tickets to the late one.

Peach Kelli Pop, Foster Care, The Foxx, Mannequin Pussy @ Death by Audio
Peach Kelli Pop (aka White Wires drummer Allie Hanlon's other band) make sugary bubblegum garage confections like on the band's new single. This is their first of two NYC shows.

NOIA, SVPER @ Cameo Gallery
Barcelona duo SVPER make motorik synthpop that sounds a bit like Broadcast's Trish Keenan fronting "Electricity"-era Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark.

So Percussion, Buke and Gase @ Merkin Concert Hall
The Ecstatic Music Festival continues tonight with So Percussion (who have collaborate with Dan Deacon and others) teaming up with the experimental pop of NYC duo Buke & Gase.

Stephen O'Malley of SUNN O))), Alberich, Ancient Ocean @ Baby's All Right
Stephen O'Malley of legendary drone band Sunn O))) is about to play Tennessee's Big Ears Fest, but first he stops in NYC tonight for this show at Baby's All RIght, which we at BV are thrilled to be co-presenting. Support comes from local noise/drone projects Alberich and Ancient Ocean.

Diane Cluck @ Rockwood Music Hall
Diane Cluck nails a mix of freak folk and more delicate psychedelic folk, and on this year's Boneset LP (her first since 2006), she sounds as great as ever. Tonight's her first of two Rockwood shows this week, both sold out.

Hieroglyphic Being, Jahiliyya Fields, Aurora Halal @ Output's Panther Room
Chicago DJ Hieroglyphic Being returns to NYC tonight to work the dancefloor of Output's Panther Room. L.I.E.S.' Jahiliyya Fields and Mutual Dreaming's Aurora Halal are on the bill too.

The xx @ Park Avenue Armory
The xx continue their run of 25 shows at the Park Avenue Armory which run through March 29. Each show is extremely intimate (holds 40 people) and very sold out.

'Shouting at the Screen' w/ Wyatt Cenac, Donwill, DJ Tara @ The Bell House
Comedians Wyatt Cenac and Dowill take aim at '70s blacksploitation films, riffing throughout a la MST3K.

Big Terrific @ Cameo
Max Silvestri hosts the free weekly comedy show in the back of Williamsburg's Lovin' Cup. No word yet on tonight's lineup but you can check Max's Twitter.

My funniest NYC moment is when I dunked Mr Foot Fetishes face directly into a Robust Hummus Platter at a north Williamsburg dinner party.

Well, Mr Foot Fetish, I know this one fellow with some nasty toe bunions that sleeps on the C train. He would certainly love a good foot rub if you would be so kind to administer.

Action Rappers UNITE!!

I don't care for AB as a rapper, because why listen to the Kidz Bop version of Ghostface?

On the other hand, I care about him as a human being, and if you're a fan of his, you need to encourage him to do something about his weight. RIP Big Pun...

Just because you don't pay attention anymore, BV, doesn't mean that the Lox USED to be exciting. Styles P, Jada, and Sheek are still great and put out solid mixtapes and albums. Action Bronson is good, but he owes his entire career/sound to that era of rap. He's not innovative.

Usually when a person carries on a conversation with themselves society at large would have them institutionalized and medicated. Not in BV comments though, apparently.

Forest Swords were very good. Not much to look at mind you, but that kid's compositions are really good. Left after they were done, b/c seriously fuck anyone who would name their act How To Dress Well.
