Mineral in Austin last week (more by Tim Griffin)
Mineral

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

Mineral, Into It. Over It., Frank Turner @ Saint Vitus
One of the most beloved bands of emo's late '90s period, Mineral, are back for their first tour in 17 years, and the first tour since the release of their slowcore-leaning classic swan song, EndSerenading. Tonight's the first of four sold-out NYC shows, all of which are opened by newer emo band Into It. Over It. Frank Turner's playing a solo set as a special guest opener at this one as well.

The New Pornographers @ The Brill Building
The Canadian supergroup playing their terrific new album Brill Bruisers at the actual Brill Building... a match made in heaven. (Or Matador's marketing department, whichever.) You had to win tickets to this NPR-presented show but we hear it's a street-level storefront...if you're in the area around 8 PM, you might catch a glimpse.

Interpol, Luke Temple @ Bowery Ballroom
This is the second of three celebratory shows for locals-done-good Interpol around the release of their back-to-basics new album, El Pintor. Tuesday's show at The Met leaned heavy on the first two albums. Will Bowery get the same tonight?

Alt-J @ Rough Trade NYC
This past Tuesday, Alt-J debuted more than half of their new album at Le Poisson Rouge. Tonight they've got another intimate pre-release show here in NYC, and we can likely count on another big chunk of the new LP.

Sun Araw's Blazer Double Double, Highlife, Noveller, Psychic Reality, Blazer Sound System @ Baby's All Right
It's the second of two nights for experimentalist Sun Araw at Baby's All Right tonight. Strong support too, we especially recommend catching drone guitarist Noveller.

Part Time, Sea Lions, Wax Witches @ Glasslands
San Francisco's Part Time walk a similar line to Ariel Pink, taking soft rock and synth pop, twisting it and making it their own. Their new tour single, "My Jamey," is ridiculously catchy. It is disappointing that scheduled tourmates Gap Dream pulled out before the trek began, but they got a good replacement in Oxnard, CA's charmingly shambolic The Sea Lions. This should be a fun show.

DJ Shadow, Cut Chemist, Edan, Paten Locke @ Irving Plaza
Two veteran hip hop DJs and collaborators DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist are currently on the road for a tour where they're DJing exclusively from Afrika Bambaataa's personal vinyl collection. Tonight's the first of two shows at Irving Plaza this week, with strong support coming from psych rapper Edan and his collaborator Paten Locke.

Big Ups, Fiasco, Heeney, Turbosleaze @ Shea Stadium
This is a cool bill of the (relatively) old and new, with Big Ups currently being one of the more fun local bands to see around NYC, and the recently-reunited Fiasco who were one of the more fun local bands to see during their initial run.

Crazy Spirit, Dawn of Humans, The Lowest Form, Hank Wood & The Hammerheads @ The Acheron
If you're into raw, dirty and ruthless punk, this bill showcases some of the strongest stuff in that genre that NYC has to offer teaming up with the UK's The Lowest Form. Expect male nudity (Dawn of Humans), organs (Hank Wood), and just general craziness (everyone).

Kevin Drumm & Jason Lescalleet, C Spencer Yeh @ Trans Pecos
Drone masters Kevin Drumm and Jason Lescalleet's new collaborative album is a very strong release for the genre, and tonight they celebrate it with a release show in NYC. Support comes from violinist C Spencer Yeh.

Social Distortion, The Whigs, Jonny Two Bags @ Starland Ballroom
Veteran punk rockers Social Distortion don't hit NYC on their current tour, but they'll be nearby for a NJ show tonight and a Long Island show tomorrow.

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

For laughs, check out the NYC Comedy calendar too.

Of course Mineral "Rocks"!

Mineral is a rare find

Into It Over It and Frank Turner are such boring, uninteresting bands. I never understood the love for Mineral, either, and I'm a guy who LOVES the genre (and associated genres/sounds). I guess it makes sense they're playing together. I understand the influence, but Mineral always struck me as a band that a lot of bands refined and enhanced to make much better results.

is mineral a Quartztet?

Mineral's first album had many facets, and I loved the polished sound. They have a timeless quality.

^Were you stoned when you wrote this? I saw them once at pebble beach? They rocked the house. The did a Rolling Stones cover that most of us took for granite. I wish this band would cover Morrissey's album you are the Quarry I think that would work well.

The only Mineral I'm aware of is the Iron locked inside the chickpea.

Anyone know the set times for Sun Araw show at Baby's All Right tonight?

Posted by Anonymous | September 4, 2014 1:36 PM

I'm so glad I unearthed my Mineral Cassettes from back in the day. I really dig them. I discover new things from them every time I listen to them. They should tour with Cold Cave. It would be the foundation for a good tour. I wouldn't mine hearing more from them. The music is gold and a lot of their music is in the miner key which makes it interesting!

That's Gold Jerry, Gold!

I remember when hummus was $1.99 for a decent size side order. :(

Reading down this thread it's clear that 12:48 hit the nail on the head, and the unfunny pun man got pretty upset about it. I remember this being exactly how the ipods guy reacted when his shtick got called out too.

Posted by Anonymous | September 4, 2014 2:39 PM

^wrong nice try buddy

Posted by Anonymous | September 4, 2014 2:42 PM
