Speedy Ortiz

Speedy Ortiz, Palm, Aye Nako @ Saint Vitus
Speedy Ortiz added new elements to their discordant indie rock on this year's Foil Deer without losing what made them so great in the first place, and their live show has only gotten tighter. Tonight they're back in NYC with avant-rockers Palm and Don Giovanni-signed punks Aye Nako.

Night Train w/ guest house Aparna Nancheria @ Littlefield
Rising comic Aparna Nancherla fills in for regular Night Train host Wyatt Cenac tonight, and welcomes Maeve Higgins, Del Harrison, Matt Ruby, Gary Anderson, Solomon Georgio, and musical guest Suphala.

Sheer Mag @ LPR earlier this year (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Sheer Mag

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

Royal Headache, Sheer Mag, The Gotobeds @ Saint Vitus
With a terrific new album, High, just out, Australia's Royal Headache in town for three sold-out Brooklyn shows with Sheer Mag. Both bands raise a ruckus, and this is the final one of the three. It's also got arguably the best opener with Pittsburgh's great The Gotobeds who will release their next LP on Sub Pop.

Eskimeaux, Told Slant, Bellows @ Riis Park Beach Bazaar
It's an all-Epoch lineup at Riis Park Beach Bazaar today, headlined by Eskimeaux, whose recent OK is one of the better DIY-pop albums of this year.

Flowers of Evil, Surfbort, OCDPP @ Cake Shop
It's Retro Punk Side Project Night at Cake Shop with Flowers of Evil (members of Crocodiles, A Place To Bury Strangers, SISU, and Young Boys) who lean UK 1977, and OCDPP (members of Vivian Girls, Dum Dum Girls) who lean LA 1980. In between are wild rabble-rousers Surfbort. This'll be a fun show.

Damien "J. Gong" Marley with Stephen "Ragga" Marley & Morgan Heritage @ Central Park SummerStage
Two of Bob Marley's songs join forces on the "Catch a Fire" tour that also features band Morgan Heritage. This is a ticketed SummerStage show.

THOLLEM/CHASE (Thollem Electric and Brian Chase), Hamish Kilgour, Kyle Forester, Bentley Anderson @ Trans-Pecos
A night of musicians better known for not being in the spotlight in their main bands tonight they shine. Kyle Forester, who plays in Crystal Stilts and Ladybug Transistor, is prepping a solo album and tonight debuts his solo band.

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

Wavves

Evidence is mounting that Wavves will in fact be the secret guest at Pitchfork's show at Villain tonight with Protomartyr and Deradoorian also on the bill. Wavves' tour with Twin Peaks begins in Early September and returns to NYC for two shows in early October.

UPDATE: Yes, WAVVES was the guest.

La Luz @ Webster Hall

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

Royal Headache, Sheer Mag, Flowers of Evil @ Palisades
With a terrific new album, High, just out, Australia's Royal Headache in town for three sold-out Brooklyn shows with Sheer Mag. Both bands raise a ruckus, and as this is the only all-ages show of the three, expect this one to be the wildest and sweatiest. Flowers of Evil, featuring members of Crocodiles and A Place to Bury Strangers, are worth getting their early for.

Special guest, Protomartyr, Deradoorian @ Villain
Pitchfork is presenting this free show at this Williamsburg mixed-use spot. (RSVP if you haven't already.) Deradoorian's strange, alluring new LP just came out, and Protomartyr's great third album is due next month. Even without a "special guest" headliner (any guesses?), this show seems worth hitting. Doors at 7 PM, Deradoorian plays at 8, Protomartyr is at 9, and mystery guest is at 10 PM.

La Luz, EZTV, Scully @ Bowery Ballroom
Keeping the surf rock flame afloat (there's a mixed metaphor), Seattle's La Luz mix pop smarts and twang, and are one of the most fun live bands around. (Their new Ty Segall-produced album is great too.) Get there early for tourmates Scully.

Steve Gunn, Spacin' @ Union Pool (Summer Thunder)
It's the final Summer Thunder of the year at Union Pool and they're going out with Kurt Vile associate and new Matador signee Steve Gunn. It's free and starts at 2 PM.

DFA Summer Hot Dog @ Good Room
DFA Records loves throwing parties. Tonight is their "Summer Hot Dog" involving "DJ sets by the DFA family + special guests and a VERY special live performance!" And hot dogs? As to the special guests...any guesses? Museum of Love? Juan Maclean? Holy Ghost? Larry Gus?

Pop. 1280, Mansion, Pill, Conduit @ Shea Stadium
Fans of clanging, shriiiinging, and skronking will want to check out this show featuring four bands who work that sound of post punk songs. Of special note: Oakland, CA's Mansion who definitely go "shriiiiing" a lot. Check out their 2014 self-titled EP below.

Matias Aguayo, Kingdom, D∆WN, DJ Windows 98, Murlo, False Witness @ MoMA PS1 (Warm Up)
It's the second to last Warm Up of the summer, with singer/producer (and Battles collaborator) Matias Aguayo, Fade to Mind's Kingdom, his new art pop/R&B collaborator D∆WN (fka Dawn Richard), Arcade Fire's Win Butler as DJ Windows 98, and more.

Solvey, Vomitface, Mazed @ Alphaville
Having made music with her sister Cristi Jo as Zambri since 2008, Jessica Zambri is currently focusing on her solo project, Solvey, just released her debut -- a terrific pop album that clearly is rooted in the mid-'00s Brooklyn indie explosion but sounds very now. Tonight's the record release party.

Ronnie Stone and The Lonely Riders @ Baby's All Right
How serious you take Ronnie Stone & the Lonely Riders is up to you but his intentionally kitschy, '80s-in-a-blender shtick (somewhere between Bruce Springsteen and Prefab Sprout) is not without craft, even if it is a big joke. This is the release party for their debut album, Møtorcycle Yearbook, which you can stream below.

King Raam, Smoke Season @ Mercury Lounge
You may remember Raam from his band Hypernova who played shows with fellow Iranian band Yellow Dogs. After living in New York, LA and London, Raam is now pursuing a solo career under the name King Raam back in his homeland. He's currently on tour supporting new album, A Day & A Year.

Tamaryn at Levitation fest 2015

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

Tamaryn, Samantha Urbani @ Le Poisson Rouge
Tamaryn went from gothy shoegaze to gothy, shoegazy pop (there's a difference) on her new terrific album, Cranekiss. Tonight's the record release show with onetime Friends singer Samantha Urbani opening.

Deradoorian, Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe, Image Man @ Trans-Pecos
Deradoorian's new album is a wild ride. It pulls sounds from all over the globe, it's part psych, part prog, and always strangely accessible. Tonight's her first of two NYC shows this weekend.

So Hideous, Set and Setting, North, Bereft, Sangharsha @ Saint Vitus
So Hideous' upcoming album puts screamo, post-rock, and atmospheric black metal in a blender, and adds a noticeable modern classical influence courtesy of a 30-piece orchestra. Their tour with the similarly heavy/atmospheric Set and Setting hits NYC tonight.

Nicki Bluhm & The Gramblers, Andrew Combs @ Bowery Ballroom
For fans of country that shies away from top 40's slick sounds but remains accessible, both artists on this bill are worth catching.

Raven, Fate Breaks Dawn, METALFIER, Moniasin, Oblivion, Unholy Dispute @ Nihil Gallery
NWOBHM vets Raven have been going strong since dropping their debut single 35 years ago, and this year returned with their thirteenth album, ExtermiNation. Their last show here was loaded with classics.

Heems, Chris Rose (host), Seaton Smith, Dan Soder @ Livestream Public
Das Racist may be over but Heems is still making quality music on his own, most recently releasing the 2015 album Eat, Pray, Thug. Tonight he'll be interviewed (and he'll perform) at music-comedy "Late Night Basement" show taking place at this multi-use Bushwick events space.

Machinedrum, Dave Q, Alex English, Hiyawatha @ Slake
Production wiz Machinedrum is moving from NYC to Los Angeles. Come dance the night away at his farewell party.

Cold Fronts @ Fulton Stall Market
South Street Seaport's multi-use Fulton Stall Market is hosting free shows on Friday. The space is nice, there's bar and a secluded courtyard...worse ways to spend a couple hours after work on a Friday. Tonight's performers are Philly band Cold Fronts.

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

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

Beach House, Romantic States @ Baby's All Right
Baltimore's Beach House celebrates their new album Depression Cherry with this just-announced intimate show. Good luck getting tickets (they're on sale at noon) but for those who do get them it's likely to be a special night.

DJ Windows 98 (Win Butler of Arcade Fire), Chrome Sparks (DJ Set) @ Le Poisson Rouge
You've seen him wow arenas full of fans as frontman for Arcade Fire; tonight you can see Win Butler spin tunes on his laptop as DJ Windows 98.

Tei Shi, Newtown Radio DJs @ MoMA
The final installment of the 2015 MoMA Nights series, you can catch Brooklyn-based (by way of Canada and Argentina) artist Tei Shi tonight in the museum's sculpture garden. Free with museum entry.

Phuture, DJ Pierre, Turtle Bugg @ Output
With their squelching, 303-fueled track "In Your Mind," Chicago's Phuture basically invented acid house. Having played NYC for the first time ever earlier this year, they're back in town tonight.

The Good Life, Big Harp, Anna McClellan @ Bowery Ballroom
Cursive's Tim Kasher also fronts The Good Life, and this month they put out Everybody's Coming Down, their first album in eight years. They're on tour supporting it now, and hitting NYC tonight.

Earth, Holy Suns @ Saint Vitus
Masters of drone metal Earth are on tour now with Emil Amos' band Holy Sons. They played LPR last night, and tonight they wrap up their NYC run at Saint Vitus. Sold out.

Sean Price memorial show @ SOB's
Influential and beloved MC Sean Price stayed true to his '90s roots for his entire career, keeping that sound alive as recently as this month's Songs in the Key of Price mixtape. Sadly, he passed away at the too-young age of 43 this month, and this show will honor him.

Levitation

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

AC/DC @ MetLife Stadium
Last year AC/DC released their sixteenth album, Rock or Bust, which basically sounded the way they always have, and AC/DC's case that's totally fine. They're playing a few off that on this tour, but mostly stacking their setlists with the hits.

Earth, Marc Ribot & Ikue Mori, Holy Sons @ Le Poisson Rouge
Masters of drone metal Earth return to NYC for their first of two shows with Emil Amos' band Holy Sons. This one's especially cool, because it also features a collaborative set from guitar great Marc Ribot and no wave pioneer Ikue Mori.

Darwin Deez, Strange Names, Junior Prom @ Baby's All Right
Darwin Deez may have a quirky fashion sense, but his heartfelt guitar pop is pretty universal. Third album Double Down, due out in September, is another winner. Get a preview tonight.

Joseph Arthur @ City Winery
A talented musician and visual artist, Joseph Arthur usually shows off his skills at his shows, creating a painting as the show goes on. It might be considered a gimmick if he wasn't so talented.

Alessia Cara, Sebastian Kole, Craig Stickland @ Bowery Ballroom
Def Jam-signed singer Alessia Cara has been picking up some buzz for catchy alt-R&B single "Here," which will appear on her debut EP that drops this week. Tonight's show is sold out.

Jason Lescalleet & Jean-Louis Huhta, David Grubbs @ Trans-Pecos
Experimental musician Jason Lescalleet returns to NYC tonight, this time for a collaborative set with Swedish musician/DJ Jean-Louis Huhta. Jean-Louis has been active since the '80s, playing a number of bands including Cortex and Anti Cimex, and he's currently a member of Skull Defekts.

Melody's Echo Chamber in Chicago 2012 (more by James Richards IV)
Melody's Echo Chamber

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

Melody's Echo Chamber, Quilt @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
With a new album supposedly on the way (her first since her 2012 debut) it will be exciting to hear what Melody Prochet has up her sleves, musically, these days. Added treat: Boston's great Quilt open the sold-out show.

Royal Headache, Sheer Mag, Home Blitz @ Rough Trade
With a terrific new album, High, just out, Australia's Royal Headache hit town for their first of three Brooklyn shows with Sheer Mag. Both bands raise a ruckus, probably even at a well-mannered place like Rough Trade. Like all of their shows here, this is sold out.

Heems, Sandunes, Big Baby Gandhi @ Baby's All Right
Das Racist may be over but Heems is still making quality music on his own, most recently releasing the 2015 album Eat, Pray, Thug. He plays Baby's tonight in continued support of that.

The Atlas Moth, Vattnet Viskar, Family @ Saint Vitus
This is a pretty great double bill for metal fans with the psychedelic sludge of The Atlas Moth and the boundary-pushing black metal of Vattnet Viskar.

Kamasi Washington @ Blue Note (2 shows)
Jazz musician Kamasi Washington has been having a pretty busy year. He appears on Kendrick Lamar and Thundercat's new albums, and he also has his own, The Epic, out on Flying Lotus' Brainfeeder label (Thundercat features on that album too). Tonight he wraps up his two-night stay at the Blue Note with 8 PM and 10:30 PM sets each night.

Maudlin of the Well @ The Stone
Toby Driver begins his residency at The Stone tonight, and he kicks things off with two sets (8 and 10 PM) from his avant-garde metal band Maudlin of the Well.

Cake Shop Comedy @ Cake Shop
If you miss Big Terrific and Hannibal Buress' Sunday night show at Knit, and are looking for a new free, weekly comedy show that happens in a rock club and sometimes has big name talent stop by unexpectedly, "Cake Shop Comedy" might do the trick. (Aziz Ansari  and Louis CK have both stopped by in recent weeks.) 8 PM.

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

Tweens

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

Dalek, Publicist UK, Azar Swan @ Saint Vitus Bar
Industrial rap crew Dalek headline tonight, with support from Relapse-signed Publicist UK (who are from Brooklyn) and gothy pop act Azar Swan.

Kamasi Washington @ Blue Note (2 shows)
Jazz musician Kamasi Washington has been having a pretty busy year. He appears on Kendrick Lamar and Thundercat's new albums, and he also has his own, The Epic, out on Flying Lotus' Brainfeeder label (Thundercat features on that album too). Tonight he begins his two-night stay at the Blue Note with 8 PM and 10:30 PM sets each night.

Tweens, Moral Panic @ Cake Shop
Cincinnati garage pop trio Tweens haven't reinvented the wheel or anything, but their live show is a high-energy sugar rush. They're super fun.

Graham Nash @ City Winery
In addition to being a member of The Hollies and one of folk rock's most famous supergroups ever, Graham Nash has a very worthy solo career, including the classic 1971 LP Songs for Beginners. You'll likely hear stuff from all three of those things and more tonight.

Sam Cohen, Adrienne Lenker, Keenan O'Meara @ Manhattan Inn
Part of this intimate Greenpoint venue's "At the Inn" series, tonight's features onetime Yellowbirds and Apollo Sunshine frontman Sam Cohen, whose solo debut from this year is well worth checking out. Free but donations are suggested.

Sun Club, Fake Palms, Fern Mayo, Nap @ Palisades
Toronto's Fake Palms make low fi post-punk, not entirely dissimilar to Women and Viet Cong, though with a little more straightforward songwriting. (Not a bad thing at all.)

Baked, Zula, Flagland, Gnarwhal, Fond Han @ Silent Barn
You may know a thing or two about '90s indie rock being back, and one of the most consistently solid homes for those types of bands is Exploding In Sound Records. The label is throwing an extended weekend of shows in Brooklyn and Boston, which continues tonight.

"Ask Me Another" @ The Bell House
Another in NPR's "Ask Me Another" live quiz show tapings, tonight features Sonia Manzano and Emilio Delgado who you might know better as Sesame Street's Maria and Luis.

Chris Gethard: Career Suicide @ Union Hall
It's another night of Chris Gethard's Career Suicide shows, for which he promises "an hour of stand up focusing on suicide, alcoholism, and all the other funniest parts of life."

Night Train w/ Wyatt Cenac @ Littlefield
This is an extra-loaded Brooklyn Comedy Festival edition of Night Train, with guest host Seaton Smith, plus Nick Turner, Myq Kaplan, Michelle Buteau, Kevin Barnett, and Charles McBee.

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

Thundercat

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

Afropunk Festival @ Commodore Barry Park
It's the second day of the awesome multi-genre two-day Afropunk Festival, and there's a ton of great artists today including Gary Clark Jr, Kele, Thundercat, Kaytranada, Kelela, Goldlink, Curtis Harding, Petite Noir, and plenty more. Oh, and Lenny Kravitz, who's famous again for, uh... well you know.

7Seconds, Bishops Green, Success @ Saint Vitus Bar
The past few decades of melodic punk as we know it probably couldn't exist if 7Seconds didn't help lay the groundwork with their mid-'80s albums. If you're a punk fan, this show's pretty tough to miss.

Ghost @ Rough Trade (acoustic)
Have you ever wanted to see a band of instrumentalists in ghoul costumes with a singer dressed as a satanic pope strip down their riffy occult-rock songs to an acoustic setting? Then you can't miss Ghost's acoustic in-store at Rough Trade today!

Jamie xx, Maya Jane Coles, Andhim, Matador, Nastia, Bedouin @ 50 Kent

Jamie xx, Nocturnal Sunshine, Andhim, Matador @ Verboten (late)
Jamie already has two great albums out as a member of The xx, and this year he focused his talents on a solo album which is quickly getting as much love as his main band. He plays two NYC shows tonight, both of which have almost the same lineup. At the late one, Maya Jane Coles makes the US debut of her Nocturnal Sunshine project.

Colleen Green, Mannequin Pussy, Tweens, Larry and The Babes @ Palisades
Colleen Green's new album is her first with a full band, and it's a great record of lyrically honest poppy punk. Her current tour is also with a full band, and her tourmates are the likeminded Mannequin Pussy, who are also worth catching. This is the second of two NYC shows, and making it even better is this one includes garage pop band Tweens (who play their own NYC show tomorrow).

Graham Nash @ City Winery
In addition to being a member of The Hollies and one of folk rock's most famous supergroups ever, Graham Nash has a very worthy solo career, including the classic 1971 LP Songs for Beginners. You'll likely hear stuff from all three of those things and more tonight.

Jazmine Sullivan, Avery Wilson, Jordan Bratton @ Central Park SummerStage
It's been a good year for neo-soul for a lot of reasons, and one reason is the new Jazmine Sullivan album, Reality Show. She plays another NYC show in support of that tonight, and this one's totally free.

Dead Leaf Echo, Single Lash, Decorum, Future Museums @ Alphaville
Local shoegaze act are currently working on their new album with producer Jorge Elbrecht (who has sprinkled his magic on new records from Tamaryn and No Joy) and hopefully they'll play some of it tonight. Also on the bill: the two-bass-and-drums attack of Decorum (featuring Leif of Orca Team)

Lydia Lunch, Weasel Walter, Bob Bert, Tim Dahl, The Everyothers @ Le Poisson Rouge
This is one of Lydia Lunch's 'Retrovirus' shows, a no-holds-barred survey of her musical output from 1977 to the present that includes Weasel Walter (The Flying Luttenbachers), Bob Bert (Pussy Galore, Chrome Cranks), and Tim Dahl (Child Abuse).

Fly Ashtray, Octagrape, Silk Purse, Hamish Kilgour @ Cake Shop
Having formed in 1983, long-running, sporadically active NYC indie rockers Fly Ashtray remain of the city's best kept secrets. Catch them tonight with Octagrape (the current band from onetime Souljunk and Truman's Water dude Glen Galloway), The Clean's Hamish Kilgour and more.

Of Montreal, Mothers @ Asbury Lanes
Long-running makers of avant-garde pop, Of Montreal are still touring this year's quite good Aureate Gloom. Opening are fellow Georgians Mothers.

Billboard Hot 100 Music Festival @ Jones Beach
This may be largely a mainstream pop festival, but there's actually some stuff worth catching. Today has big names like Nicki Minaj and Skrillex, and some cool smaller stuff like iLoveMakonnen, Kiesza, Holy Ghost! and Main Attrakionz.

Laura Stevenson, Leah Wellbaum of Slothrust, Prince Daddy and The Hyena @ Riis Park Beach Bazaar
It's another afternoon of music on the beach, this time headlined by Don Giovanni-signed singer/songwriter Laura Stevenson.

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