PAWS @ BVSXSW 2013 (more by Sarah Frankie Linder)
IMAGE

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

Shilpa Ray, D'NT, Triptides, Clapperclaw @ Baby's All Right
An intense performer, Shilpa Ray doesn't let you just idly watch her. Not that you could. She's also likely the most aggressive harmonium player you've ever seen. Her latest EP, It's All Self Fellatio, came out last year on Nick Cave's Bad Seed Ltd. label.

TRAXMAN, Special Guest, Sadaf, DJ Weird Magic @ Baby's All Right
Chicago footwork mastermind Traxman returns to NYC for the late show at Baby's and a special guest is promised. Who could it be?

Little Racer, Teen Commandments, Stargazy, Karla Moheno @ Cameo Gallery
Brooklyn band Little Racer have been at it for a while now, making very catchy, UK-inspired guitar pop. They headline this bill of similarly melodic indie pop bands.

Iceage, Uniform @ Glasslands
Denmark's Iceage like to put on moody punk shows that are mostly in the dark and never overstay their welcome. This is their first of two NYC shows this weekend and opening tonight is the noise-driven duo Uniform, whose lineup includes members of The Men and Drunkdriver.

Mobb Deep, Smif-n-Wessun @ Irving Plaza
Queens hip hop veterans Mobb Deep are celebrating the 20th anniversary of The Infamous this year with a reissue, new material, and a lengthy tour which includes a hometown show tonight.

Banner Pilot, Sad and French, Jukebox Romantics @ Knitting Factory
If you're into modern punk bands doing it like '90s punk bands, Banner Pilot are for you. Their tour hits NYC tonight with pretty solid local support.

Pujol @ Rough Trade
Pujol's new album KLUDGE just came out and it's a fairly hi-fi affair for this Nashville garage rocker -- not slick (greasy maybe) -- with some terrific songs on it. This is a free matinee...

Pujol, Dirty Fences @ Mercury Lounge
...before tonight's Mercury Lounge show

Oneohtrix Point Never, Matmos, Dutch E Germ @ MHOW
OPN has been one of the modern leaders of ambient music as of late, and he's tapped some pretty good support for tonight's show including veteran duo Matmos and ex-Gang Gang Dance member Dutch E Germ.

PAWS, Alex G, The Dirty Nil, and MA @ Shea Stadium
Somewhere between '90s indie rock and classic pop punk lies Glasgow trio PAWS, whose new album Youth Culture Forever provides more of those sugary hits. Also don't miss lo-fi singer/songwriter Alex G and Canadian ragers The Dirty Nil.

Grant Hart, Grooms, Shy Hunters @ Bowery Electric
Grant Hart may be not as popular as his former Husker Du bandmate Bob Mould, but he's still got an active solo career as well, which included the release of last year's very well-received The Argument.

Valley Lodge, OxenFree, Pavell @ Rock Shop
While most people know Dave Hill as a comedian, he's also a musician with the serious chops on guitar. He spent time as part of Cleveland band Cobra Verde and plays tonight with his current band, Valley Lodge.

Higgins Waterproof Black Magic Band, Tara Jane O'Neil, Trummors @ Union Pool
As part of TV on the Radio, Tunde Adebimpe is one of the recognizable figures in the '00s Brooklyn band boom. Tonight he plays with his other band, Higgins Waterproof Black Magic Band. Feel free to bug him tonight about why he's abandoned Brooklyn for LA. Also on the bill: former Rodan/Retsin member Tara Jane O'Neil who makes excellent noise folk.

Mister Saturday Night: Justin Carter, Eamon Harkin @ Mister Saturday Night's House (Red Bull Music Academy)
RBMA continues tonight with one of NYC's long-running dance parties, Mister Saturday Night.

Electric Daisy Carnival @ MetLife Stadium
The mostly EDM festival Electric Daisy Carnival may be something you want to avoid, but if you are going, there is some cool stuff to catch today like Kastle, Carl Cox, John Digweed, Art Department and more.

John Digweed, Alex Graham, Art Department, Nicolas Matar @ Output
And whether or not you go to EDC, there's always the afterparties at Output which are taking a pretty old school approach this year. Tonight's has NYC '90s rave/club scene vets John Digweed and Alex Graham, Cielo founder Nicolas Matar, and Canadian duo Art Department.

We hope you're enjoying Memorial Day Weekend. We made a guide of some of the extended holiday goings-on.

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

For laughs, check out the NYC Comedy calendar too.

Is Shilpa Ray no longer playing with The Happy Hookers? I've been wondering about her and the band since their great Knitting Factory release. Hope she's working on more ...

Remember when Iceage were going to be the next big thing? Sold out show and lots of buzz and hype. That was just 12 months ago. Now it's very ho-hum. Small venue. No advance promotion. Poor guys.

Iceage at Glasslands, and tickets are still available right now. That's really a big fail for the buzzing idiots of 2012-13. These guys are nothing and always were nothing, except for some Pitchfork and Stereogum douchebags who know nothing about music saying they're the future of punk. Some future.
The sad part is that Matador bought the hype and signed them. How's that working out.

Music is not measured by buzz, you fad chasing idiots. Find what sounds good to you, and support that. Joe Strummer would be ashamed of you fad chasing fools.

No one is chasing fads here. But one of my favorite fad bands was Ponytail. Remember them? Awful, wealthy college kids posing as artists. Sort of the Perfect Pussy of 2011.

Ps - Joe Strummer is an overrated baby boomer. As schlocky as Springsteen.

Joe Strummer was king of jumping on the band wagon. Pub rock was big in England so he joined the 101'ers. After the Damned & Sex Pistols put punk on the map he jumped on that fad.

Love this fashion trend of looking like a hobo and playing a $1000+ guitar

Posted by Anonymous | May 24, 2014 9:32 PM

for guitars $1000 in 2014 is approx equivalent to $350 in 1984

a $1000 guitar is kind of the bottom of the middle tier these days, and I would almost guarentee that hipsters get theirs used or they got them as gifts when they were younger

Joe strummer liked boys.

Posted by Anonymous | May 24, 2014 11:07 PM

And ... this, my friends, is what BV has become for the summer of 2014: making ridiculously immature statements about Joe Strummer. It's gone beyond being so painfully disgusting that it's actually fucking hilarious. While I enjoy reading Gawker, many know that there's a lot of silliness that gets posted there. However, there's intelligence and mettle in many of the responses. And Pitchfork can be absurd and far too willing to jump on any bandwagon. That being said, there's smart writing on it, for the most part, and it's worth a healthy browse each day. But Brooklyn Vegan has become a sick joke. It's kids with low intelligence, the inability to articulate a cohesive thought and always willing to scrape the bottom of the barrel with some absurd, and often, homophobic and/or sexist comment. Congratulations.

Hahaha. Such pathetic little mama boyz on this site. Remember, friends, take a walk outside for fresh air every few hours. The basement in those midwestern states gets really humid and can rot your brain when you combine it with a diet of soda, video games and daydreaming of kissing something other than your hand and jacking off.

Posted by Anonymous | May 26, 2014 7:00 PM


Hahaha. I think the bestest aspect of all this is that so many little kiddies get their panties in a twist when you call them out on being racist, homophobic, sexist, bigoted human beings. It's hilarious how angry they get when someone holds a mirror up to them. All kidding aside, it's quite sad. You have to live with that mentality and set of ideologies the rest of your lives. Best of luck with that, friends.

Friend, you clearly have not been paying attention to this game. The only reason this little charade has been carrying on is because kids like you get so worked up and showcase your true idiocy. It's pure magic, actually. Now, back to the main focus here: your shitty, per usual, grammar. Let's break this bad bitch down.

If you're addressing Dude, you need a comma after his name. And, my sweet motherfucker, the comma you put in after Face is what we 'round these parts call a comma splice. It Mos Def doesn't belong there. Use a semicolon, when appropriate, or a period.

At least you little twinks keep The Professor active because I'm always having corrections to grade with your poor-as-fuck skillz.

Later, sweetheart. xox

Friend! Did you not read the post a few up?! What the living fuck?! If you are addressing someone, and in this case it appears to be someone named Fruit Loops, you need a comma in there. Honestly, when I think the bar can not get dropped any lower, some fucking tool like yourself comes along and proves me wrong.

Not to be confused with the em dash, you used an en dash in your list, 11:36pm. I'm not certain that's the best way to go when detailing a list. You might want to reconsider and use bullets. Or, should you choose, you could number them. Often folks who make lists like to number their points.

I just want you to know that life is going to be OK for you. Please, don't be so angry. I know it might be tough with your unwillingness to want to learn the basics in life. But like Bob Dylan sang, I believe in you. If you could manage to redirect such malicious focus towards bettering yourself, you may really obtain some of those goals you have. I mean, you do have goals, right? You know, the kind that exist beyond High Score. Or, say, how many windows you can have open while getting off on Porn Hub or something like that. And know that when the time comes for you to step on out of that deep closet you're (not) so well hidden in, I'm sure your BV friends will accept you for the tool you are, and not simply a gay tool.

Best. Hugs, fucker. Hugs.
