Alexis Taylor @ Manhattan Inn 5/04/2014 (via @brooklynvegan instagram)
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Alexis Taylor (of Hot Chip), The Yum Dee Days @ Rough Trade
If you like the more introspective songs in Hot Chip's catalog (like "Look After Me" from The Warning) chances are you'll like Alexis Taylor's new solo album, Await Barbarians. When we saw him at Manhattan Inn a while back he did some of those quiet Hot Chip songs too.
King Buzzo (Melvins), Mary Halvorson @ The Wick
With the Melvins, Buzz Osborne has made some of the dirtiest sludge there is, but he's gone soft on us and put out on acoustic record. Of course, even King Buzzo acoustic still rocks pretty hard.
Gingerlys, Lavachild, Franny & Zooey, The Bright Sides, exiles @ Baby's All Right
Brooklyn band Gingerlys put shoegaze muscle behind their "oohs" and "ahhs" and are celebrating the release of their new EP tonight.
Luluc @ Rough Trade
Before Alexis' show at Rough Trade is this free record release show for Luluc who's new self titled album was co-produced by Aaron Dessner of The National and marks the band's first record for Sub Pop.
Night Train w/ Wyatt Cenac @ Littlefield
This week's edition of Wyatt Cenac's weekly Night Train comedy series is guest hosted by The Kondabolu Brothers and features appearances by The Lucas Brothers, Jordan Carlos, Alex Koll, Emily Maya Mills, and Sid Singh.
