Thundercat @ RBSSS Philly (more by Ryan Muir)
Thundercat

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

Thundercat, ASTR, Tondrae Kemp @ LPR
Thundercat is pretty close to a genius in terms of his bass playing, pulling from jazz, electronica, and hip hop and bringing it all together for a blend that no one else is really doing right now.

Justin Timberlake @ MSG
Justin Timberlake does a lot of things, some of them great, some of them less great, but one of those things is that he makes some of the most forward-thinking mainstream pop around, and he'll fill MSG with that tonight.

UPDATE: JT postponed til Friday.

Radkey, Netherlands, EULA, Shark? @ Death By Audio
This whole bill is pretty solid with the polished punk of Radkey, the synth-fueled heavy punk of Netherlands, the noise rock of EULA, and the catchy garage rock of Shark?.

Steve Earle @ City Winery
Having worked inside and outside the music industry, country survivor, protest singer and occasional actor Steve Earle plays his last of four City Winery shows tonight.

Cian Nugent, Bloom @ Union Pool
Cian Nugent taught himself to play guitar which accounts for his unusual style. Catch him tonight before his sold-out show with Angel Olson later in the week.

Lost in The Trees, All Tiny Creatures @ Bowery Ballroom
It's a solid double bill at Bowery Ballroom with the indie folk of Lost in the Trees and the experimental pop of All Tiny Creatures.

Dragons of Zynth, Denitia and Sene, Bowmont, Pajama People @ Highline Ballroom
If you're going to this show, do check out local trio Bowmont whose new EP, Hovering, is nicely textured synthpop.

Mount Sharp, Tape Deck Mountain, Great Western Plain, Snow What @ Silent Barn
There's some pretty solid local indie rock on this bill, including Mount Sharp, Tape Deck Mountain, and more.

James K, Gobby, Dutch E Germ, Shayne @ Cameo Gallery
UNO presents this dancey night at Cameo with live sets by James K and Mykki Blanco collaborator Gobby. Dutch E Germ and Shayne round out the bill, and there will be guest DJs too. Check out the Gobby triptych, "The Films: A Lucid Nightmare" below.

Nina Persson, White Prism @ Mercury Lounge
Though she best known for fun, upbeat songs like "Lovefool" with The Cardigans, Nina Persson shows her introspective side on her new solo album, for which this is a record release show. Sold out.

Marty Stuart and Connie Smith @ The Allen Room
Part of the American Songbook series, tonight features husband and wife team Marty Stuart and Connie Smith.

Glasvegas, The Ceremonies @ Mercury Lounge
Though the hype surrounding the band's debut has died in the years since, Scotland's Glasvegas are still making highly-charged anthemic guitar pop on their third LP, Later...When the TV Turns to Static. This is their first of two NYC shows and it's sold out.

Lesley Flanigan & People Get Ready @ Merkin Concert Hall
The Ecstatic Music Festival continues with this collaborative performance between electronic composer and vocalist Lesley Flanigan and occasionally high-concept indie band People Get Ready.

Baby Mollusk, Told Slant, Great Canopy, Whatever Dad @ 603 Bushwick Ave (upstairs)
Baby Mollusk recently added a bassist and drummer, turning her spare alt-folk into full-on indie rock attack. Tonight's the release show for their first full-band album, Baby Mollusk & the Big Babies. Whatever, Dad (aka Crying singer Elaiza Santos) isn't too far removed from Baby Mollusk's acoustic material.

Cult of Youth, Helm, Damien Dubrovnik @ Nothing Changes
It's the second NYC stop on London experimental musician Helm and Copenhagen electronic duo Damien Dubrovnik's (mem of Var, Lust for Youth) US tour, and like yesterday's (which had Pharmakon), there's a great likeminded NYC band on this one too: Cult of Youth.

Big Terrific @ Cameo
Max Silvestri hosts this long-running free comedy show. Tonight's show is big indeed, with Kara Klenk, Roger Hailes, Nick Turner, Nate Craig, and Ali Wong. Doors are at 8 PM.

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

Roky Erickson @ Chicago's Wicker Park Fest 2013 (more by Lindsay Best)
Pharmakon

Pharmakon @ Saint Vitus 2013 (more by Fred Pessaro)
IMAGE

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

The Black Angels, Roky Erickson, The Denzels @ MHOW
Two different generations of Austin psych rock on one bill together, for what is sure to be one trippy show. This is a Converse Rubber Tracks show which meant tickets were free, but are all claimed now.

Pharmakon, Helm, Damien Dubrovnik, Three Legged Race @ Baby's All Right
This is one of the two stops on London experimental musician Helm and Copenhagen electronic duo Damien Dubrovnik's (mem of Var, Lust for Youth) US tour, which also hits Nothing Changes tomorrow. But this one's especially exciting because NYC noise artist Pharmakon headlines the show.

Vic Mensa, Nitty Scott MC, MC Rugz D Bewler, KB Yung Hustle @ SOB's
Mensa, Nitty Scott MC, MC Rugz D Bewler, KB Yung Hustle @ SOB's
Vic Mensa came up around the same time as fellow Chicago rapper Chance the Rapper (who he also collaborates with), and if you dig Chance's style you'll most likely be into Vic too. His last NYC gig was opening for Disclosure at Terminal 5, but tonight you can see him headline his own show in a much smaller room. Solid local rapper Nitty Scott MC opens.

Casket Girls, The Stargazer Lilies @ Mercury Lounge
The "Graveface Roadshow" rolls onto its second NYC show, featuring Black Moth Super Rainbow main man Ryan Graveface's other band, Casket Girls. Fronted by Elsa and Phaedra Greene, the band's sound isn't to dissimilar to BMSR.

Robert Ellis, Ian O'Neill @ Mercury Lounge
Houston-based country singer-songwriter Robert Ellis has a warm, world-weary voice that belies his young age. Tonight's show is with Deer Tick's Ian O'Neill.

Kins, Grand Resort, Libel @ Knitting Factory
While very much a band, Australia/UK act Kins seem to draw inspiration from downtempo electronics for a expansive, atmospheric sound without ever dipping into anthemic "whoa oh" territory. Their shows later this week with Courtney Barnett are sold out, but you can still get tickets to tonight's headlining gig.

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

Cities Aviv at Cake Shop in 2013 (more by Chris Gersbeck)
Cities Aviv

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

The Casket Girls, The Stargazer Lilies, Creepoid, Dreamend @ Shea Stadium
The Casket Girls' lineup features Ryan Graveface of Black Moth Super Rainbow, but the group's fronted by Elsa and Phaedra Greene. Their distorted pop should be familiar to BMSR fans though. Also of note on the bill is Creepoid, who do justice to '90s-style slowcore.

Mike Birbiglia @ Union Hall
Mike Birbiglia plays big rooms these days but still loves testing out new material at cozy Union Hall. Sold out.

Pastimer, Ovlov (acoustic), Ben Mackie @ Cameo Gallery
Ovlov bring their Dinosaur Jr-isms to life in NYC venues quite often, but tonight you'll get to see a different side of them as they strip things down for an acoustic show.

MV & EE (2 Sets, FREE) @ Baby's All Right
Experimental duo (and sometimes more than a duo) MV & EE begin their "Aquarian Shade residency" at Baby's All Right tonight. They play 2 sets, both free, and then do it again next Monday too.

Cities Aviv @ Baby's All Right
Alt-rapper Cities Aviv is more than a regular on the NYC live show circuit, but tonight's a bit more special, as it's the release party for his new album, Come to Life.

Night Train @ Littlefield
Tonight Wyatt Cenac's weekly Night Train comedy show will be guest hosted by The Kondabolu Brothers. Joining them for the show is Sasheer Zamata, Phoebe Robinson, Nimesh Patel, George Gordon, Giulia Rozzi, and Roy Wood Jr.

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

Priests @ MHOW, 2013 (more by Wei Shi)
Those Darlins

Juan Wauters @ Pier 84, 2013 (more by Chris La Putt)

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

Priests, Lazyeyes, Truthers @ The End
DC post-punks Priests are a pretty intense band, both with their aggressive, upfront lyrics and the fact that their music keeps the "punk" in "post-punk." Their live show is really where it's at too, and you can get a taste of that tonight.

Juan Wauters (of The Beets), Household, Las Rosas @ Baby's All Right
Whether solo or with The Beets, Juan Wauters brings an idiosyncratic worldview and intensity to his songs and performance. He's a NYC original. This is a release party for his new album, N.A.P. North American Poetry, which is out via Captured Tracks.

Vaz, Roomrunner, Multicult, Big Ups @ Death By Audio
It's gonna get loud at this show, which includes the noise rock of Vaz, the grungy Roomrunner and their fellow Baltimoreans Multicult, and the caustic post-hardcore of Big Ups.

Those Darlins, Diarrhea Planet @ MHOW
These two Nashville bands both love rock 'n' roll, but in very different ways. Those Darlins kick around in the leather boot-wearing territory, whereas Diarrhea Planet don't really care what they wear, because the rage of their live show will have them sweating all over it anyway.

Donuts Are Forever ft. DJ Jazzy Jeff & more @ Brooklyn Bowl
It's February, which means J Dilla tributes. This one features DJ Jazzy Jeff and a bunch of others, and all proceeds benefit the Donuts Are Forever scholarship fund.

Whiskey Bitches, XNY, Unicycle Loves You, Haybaby, Adult Dude @ Radio Bushwick
There's a bunch of local bands on this bill, but the one we think is most worth catching is Adult Dude, who have a great mix of Dinosaur Jr-style rock and Superchunk-style punk.

Elway, Sad and French, Chumped, Dr. Sillybones @ Saint Vitus
Colorado punks will open for The Lawrence Arms at Gramercy Theatre soon, but if you want to see them headlining a smaller place, tonight's your shot. Also don't miss Brooklyn's Chumped, who keep pop punk real.

Comedy Night @ Knitting Factory
Big league comedy talent (Chris Rock, Louis CK, etc) show up regularly (and unannounced) for Hannibal's very popular free comedy show at Knitting Factory's front bar. Get there early.

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

Yuck @ Austin's Red 7 last week (more by Tim Griffin)
YUCK

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

Yuck, Alvvays, Painted Zeros @ Bowery Ballroom
Yuck survived losing singer Daniel Blumberg just fine -- last year's Glow and Behold was equal (maybe better) than their debut. Tonight's show is with Toronto quartet Alvvays who are pretty appealing too.

Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Low Fat Getting High @ Brooklyn Night Bazaar
It's a good one tonight at Brooklyn Night Bazaar with veteran NYC powerhouses the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion. Plus Low Fat Getting High, plus gourmet eats, ping pong, mini golf, and shopping. Free.

Kanye West @ Prudential Center
As you may know if you read the internet, Kanye West's debut album, The College Dropout, turned 10 this week, and to celebrate he included a lot of College Dropout material at the tour kickoff show in Pennsylvania. Presumably that trend will continue tonight at this NYC-area show. He's still doing almost all of Yeezus too.

Supreme Cuts, Thug Entrancer, WC Kids @ Baby's All Right
Chicago-based producer Thug Entrancer just released his new album, Death After Life, which -- like a lot of artists on the Software label -- is minimal, ambient stuff, though there are at least a couple tracks that fall into dance. This is the record release party.

Ice Choir, Germans, Future of What @ Cameo Gallery
Do you like the smoooooooth sounds of the mid-'80s New Pop scene like Scritti Politti, Prefab Sprout, and Spandau Ballet? Ice Choir replicate those sounds with uncanny precision. The whole night should appeal, for that matter. Pastel attire not required.

Dead Meadow, VietNam, Lushes @ Glasslands
Dead Meadow have been making '60s-inspired psychedelic rock for over a decade now, which they keep up on their most recent album, 2013's Warble Womb. Tonight's their second of two NYC shows.

The Queers, Night Birds, Scandals, Valley Lodge @ Mercury Lounge (2 shows)
'90s-era punk survivors The Queers are doing two shows at Mercury Lounge tonight. First, they play Love Songs for the Retarded in full at the 7 PM show with great support coming from likeminded but newer bands Night Birds and The Scandals. Then they play their "pop hits" at the 11 PM show with comedian Dave Hill's band Valley Lodge opening.

Deceased, Fantom Warrior, Penetration, Sacrificial Blood, Exhumation @ Saint Vitus
Deceased have been churning out excellent death/thrash since 1985, and they've been consistently active, still delivering killer live shows.

Bueno, Free Time (with Richard Davies), Baked, Zula @ Shea Stadium
It's a record release party for horn-charged band Bueno, but fans of Aussie indie rock will want to arrive early to see former Cardinal/Moles singer Richard Davies pair up with Free Time.

Godmaker, Rozamov, Eggnogg, Crushed @ Acheron
Boston's Rozamov are a pretty new band, but their thrash-tinted sludge, with its murky production aesthetic, is already promising. Catch them tonight and see how they deliver live.

Cheap Trick @ Wellmont Theatre
Cheap Trick have loads of power pop hits ("Surrender," "I Want You to Want Me," etc) dating back to the '70s, and tonight they're just outside of NYC to bring them to you at this Wellmont Theatre show.

Buckwheat Zydeco @ Iridium
One of the most famous zydeco musicians of all time and, at 66, still going strong.

Dave Bixby @ Issue Project Room
Psychedelic folk legend Dave Bixby's only album, Ode to Quetzalcoatl, came out back in 1969, and though it was under-appreciated in its time, it's gone on to gain the recognition it deserves as one of the better records of its kind from that era. Tonight he plays his first-ever New York show. Fans of psych-folk won't want to miss this.

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

Cibo Matto

together PANGEA @ Bowery Ballroom, 2013 (more by Dylan Johnson)
together PANGEA

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

Cibo Matto, Salt Catherdral @ LPR
Cibo Matto's brand-new album is titled Hotel Valentine so it is totally appropriate they should have their album release party tonight. Sold out, but they play Brooklyn Bowl in March.

Emancipator Ensemble, Star Slinger, ODESZA, Real Magic @ Best Buy Theater
There's a ton of great electronic music on this bill with Portland trip hop musician Emancipator, UK dance producer Star Slinger, Seattle melodic bass duo Odesza and Oakland electronic pop singer Real Magic. Bring your dancing shoes.

Team Spirit, The Liza Colby Sound, Hard Nips, Blue and Gold, Lowell @ Brooklyn Night Bazaar
Brooklyn Night Bazaar offers weekends of local artisan shopping, gourmet eats, beer and wine, ping pong, black light minigolf and music all under one Greenpoint roof. Tonight's headlined by Team Spirit, who last year on V-day released an EP called Love is for Suckers. Free.

Anti-Valentines Day Cover Band Show @ Death By Audio
Get your feelings out to cover bands of Saves the Day, Alkaline Trio, Weezer, The Get Up Kids, Sonic Youth, Dead Moon and Hole at DbA's Anti-Valentines Day Cover Band show.

Heatsick, Ned Rothenberg @ Issue Project Room
Two different experimental musicians come together for this show: the avant-electronics of Berlin's Heatsick and US composer Ned Rothenberg, who's worked with Fred Frith, John Zorn, Marc Ribot, and others.

together PANGEA, Mozes and the Firstborn @ Knitting Factory
Last time together PANGEA were here, Bowery Ballroom was a nonstop raging sea of stagedivers and crowdsurfers. These SoCal party boys bring out that in audiences, be warned.

Kings of Leon, Gary Clark Jr. @ MSG
Mind your sex, the brothers Followill will be setting it on fire tonight. There are pills for that though

Jonathan Wilson, The Blank Tapes @ MHOW
It may be 2014 but Jonathan Wilson parties like it's Laurel Canyon 1973. His highly orchestral, big-sounding new record features contributions from Graham Nash, David Crosby, Jackson Browne, Josh Tillman, Wilco's Patrick Sansone, and Mike Campbell & Benmont Tench from Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers. This is the second of two NYC shows.

Scuba, Oxia with No Regular Play, Ahmed Hashim @ Output
Scuba runs the Hotflush label and is also one of the pioneers of the type of dubstep that now gets called post-dubstep, or future garage, etc. Any chance to see this electronic great is a good one.

Turnstile, Diamond Youth, Angel Dust, Blind Justice @ The Acheron
Diamond Youth are the odd band out on this mostly-hardcore bill, instead opting for a mix of Weezer power pop and QOTSA atmosphere.

The Sons & Heirs, Dave Hill, Rob Sheffield @ The Bell House
Whether you're one of two lovers entwined or think yourself unloveable, you'll be accepted tonight at this Morrissey-themed Valentine's Day party featuring ace tribute act Sons & Heirs, comedian and Moz-o-phile Dave Hill, and music journalist Rob Sheffield. Just know -- you may go on your own, and leave on your own, and then go home and cry and want to die.

Skinny Puppy, Army of the Universe, Cult of Youth @ Webster Hall
This must be somebody's idea of a valentine's day show: long-running Canadian electro-industrial outfit Skinny Puppy come designed to shock...and to dance. They're live shows are usually something else.

Beth Orton @ The Allen Room
With all the snow we've been getting, The Allen Room -- where artists play against expansive view of Central Park -- should be particularly lovely, especially with Orton's ethereal voice. Part of the American Songbook Series.

Sarah Neufeld of Arcade Fire @ The Kitchen
Arcade Fire violinist Sarah Neufeld (also of Bell Orchestre and The Luyas) just released a three-song EP, Black Ground, which doubles as bonus material for her 2013 LP, Hero Brother. For tonight's show, she'll be joined by saxophonist (and sometimes Arcade Fire touring member) Colin Stetson.

Celestial Shore, Cloud Becomes Your Hand, Killer Bob, Throat Punishment, Jerry Paper @ The Ho_se
Mathy indie pop band Celestial Shore play locally a lot -- a whole lot -- which is probably how they make their intricate arrangements seem effortless.

The Syd Arthur / Black Girls show at Mercury Lounge was canceled due to visa/weather issues.

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

February 13, 2014

(via @kvnptrjhnsn)
Snow

Despite the snow dumped on us last night, there haven't been too many weather-related cancellations, show-wise tonight (2/13). Perhaps bands and venues thought if third graders have to go to school we can play a show. Still, there are a few and here are what cancellations and postponements we're found:

Unrelated to the snow, Lee Ranaldo and the Dust dropped off tonight's Union Pool show, but Steve Gunn, Garrett Devoe and Mike Wexler are still playing.

The Voluptuous Horror of Karen Black's Valentine's Day Spectacular has been "postponed to March 2. All tickets for the original date will be honored.."

However, the Valentine's Day Eve Ladies Of Soul Tribute with XAVIER and Friends at Joe's Pub is still on. One of those friends is Magnetic Fields maestro Stephin Merritt.

Fort Lean are no longer playing Baby's All Right tonight, but the early and late shows have been combined into "one blizzard of good times" with Sacco, Tropic of Pisces, Genghis Hans, and American Royalty. Doors are at 9:30 PM.

Tonight's AWKWAFINA show at Pianos has been moved to Wednesday February 26 due to "5 foot deep slush puddles on every corner."

UK act Deaf Havana's early show at Mercury Lounge with Born Cages has been canceled, but the late show with Timbre Timbre is still on.

UK band Peggy Sue would like you to know that despite there being "literally more snow than we've ever seen in our lives but our show at @glasslands is ON. I repeat OUR SHOW TONIGHT IS ON."

††† (Crosses) is still on at Music Hall of Williamsburg.

Unrelated to the snow -- unless he's better meteorologist than Sam Champion and knows something we don't -- but we' thought we'd mention it anyway: Mos Def has cancelled his 2/27 Highline show (which was already a makeup date).

Anything we missed? Stay warm and dry.

Peggy Sue @ Webster Hall, April 2012 (more by )
Peggy Sue

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

Lee Ranaldo and the Dust dropped off tonight's Union Pool show, but Steve Gunn, Garrett Devoe and Mike Wexler are still playing. Depending on what Mother Nature has in store for us, we may see more cancellations. We'll do our best to keep you updated.

Peggy Sue, The Mariner's Children (solo), The Private Eyes @ Glasslands
UK trio Peggy Sue make music that has a spooky/sorrowful/beautiful sound that isn't quite folk and isn't quite rock. Their new album, Choir of Echos, is terrific and they're worth trudging through the slush for.

Kele Okereke (of Bloc Party) DJ set, JDH @ Cameo Gallery
Bloc Party is taking a short break at the moment, but frontman Kele Okereke is staying very active, having released solo material, collaborated with other artists, and now he's over in the US, where he'll DJ at Cameo tonight.

KLANGKARUSSELL (DJ), Thomas Azier (live), Stefan Biniak (DJ), Little Dragon (DJ) @ Irving Plaza
It's the first installment of the Painted BLACK series at Irving Plaza tonight with this electronic-oriented lineup, which is mostly DJ sets, including one from Little Dragon.

(Crosses) †††, The Color Film, Yung Gutted, Ultra Grrrl (DJ) @ MHOW
Crosses is a side project featuring Chino Moreno of Deftones and Shaun Lopez of Far which gives them a chance to make synthier, gothier music than their other projects. Similarly, Color Film gives Glassjaw's Daryl Palumbo a chance to do the same thing.

Nicole Atkins, Arc Iris, Domino Kirke @ Bowery Ballroom
Nicole Atkins makes pretty agreeable, polished folk-tinged rock on her new album, Slow Phaser, which you'll get a chance to hear live at Bowery Ballroom tonight.

The Voluptuous Horror of Karen Black, Youthquake @ Bowery Electric
Dinner at a fancypants restaurant and flowers too "normal" a valentine for you? The Voluptuous Horror of Karen Black are throwing a "Valentine's Day Spectacular" that is sure to be in your face.
POSTPONED DUE TO WEATHER.

Valentine's Day Eve Ladies Of Soul Tribute with XAVIER and Friends @ Joe's Pub
If an in-your-face Valentine's Day is not what you're looking for, here's another offbeat option. Magnetic Fields' Stephin Merritt is involved so chances are it won't be too treacly.

Timber Timbre, Lowell @ Mercury Lounge
Timber Timbre make great (if a bit underrated) noir folk ballads, and from the sound of their new single, "Hot Dreams," the new record may work in some '80s-style romance too.

Fort Lean, Tropic of Pisces, Sacco, American Royalty, Genghis Hans @ Baby's All Right
Fort Lean had to cancel their appearance, so Baby's All Right has combined the early and late shows there into one slushy party. Doors at 9:30 PM.

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

Perfect Pussy @ NYU 2013 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
PP

Julianna Barwick @ Wellmont Theatre - 5/16/13 (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)
JB

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

Total Slacker, Perfect Pussy, Life Size Maps, Honduras @ Baby's All Right
This is technically a record release party for Total Slacker's new album, Slip Away, but we have a feeling there are probably a few folks going specifically to catch opener Perfect Pussy whose Captured Tracks debut, Say No to Love, is out next month.

Jonathan Wilson, Laarji @ Bowery Ballroom
It may be 2014 but Jonathan Wilson parties like it's Laurel Canyon 1973. His highly orchestral, big-sounding new record features contributions from Graham Nash, David Crosby, Jackson Browne, Josh Tillman, Wilco's Patrick Sansone, and Mike Campbell & Benmont Tench from Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers. This is the first of two NYC shows.

Juliana Barwick @ Our Lady of Lebanon Church
Brooklyn ambient pop artist Julianna Barwick released the lovely Nepenthe last year and tonight her music will get lots of room to breathe at this stunning Brooklyn Heights church.

Steve Earle (solo) @ City Winery
Having worked inside and outside the music industry, country survivor, protest singer and occasional actor Steve Earle plays his second of four City Winery shows tonight.

Kid Sister, Nadus, Boy/Friend and The New Deal @ Glasslands
Kanye-collaborating Chicago rapper KId Sister returns to NYC to bring the party to Glasslands tonight.

Ane Brun, Linnea Olsson @ Highline Ballroom
Norwegian singer/songwriter Ane Brun just celebrated ten years of releasing music last year with Songs 2003-2013 and Rarities, and she's now finally back in the US to support those releases.

Nothing Changes w/ Theologian, Nick Klein @ Home Sweet Home
Weekly dark arts party Nothing Changes invites Brooklyn industrialists Theologian and squelchy electronics master Nick Klein into their world tonight.

Saint Rich, ARP @ Mercury Lounge
An offshoot of Delicate Steve (role-reversal is probably a more correct term), Saint Rich keep things greasy with their brand of boogie riffs and laid-back grooves.

Brent Arnold, Baby Copperhead, Tom Brosseau, Christy & Emily, Eleanor Friedberger (The Fiery Furnaces) @ Paper Box
Lots of artists on this bill, but we think it's especially worth showing up early to catch The Fiery Furnaces' Eleanor Friedberger, who's been having a pretty great solo career.

Crosses †††, Color Film, Richie Quake @ Santos Party House
Crosses is a side project featuring Chino Moreno of Deftones and Shaun Lopez of Far which gives them a chance to make synthier, gothier music than their other projects. Similarly, Color Film gives Glassjaw's Daryl Palumbo a chance to do the same thing.

Radiator Hospital, Generifus, Frankie Cosmos, Crying, Quarterbacks @ Shea Stadium
It's the Double Double Whammy label party at Shea Stadium with a number of great bands, most notably the emotional/punky Radiator Hospital and the folky Frankie Cosmos.

Hey Rosetta! @ Rockwood Music Hall
Newfoundland orch-pop outfit Hey Rosetta! are known for their spirited, string-laden live shows. The band will be testing out material from their upcoming new album over two nights at Rockwood, this being the first.

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

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

Dead Meadow at MHOW in 2011 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Dead Meadow

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

The Autumn Defense, T. Hardy Morris @ Highline Ballroom
The Autumn Defense is the side project of John Stirratt and Pat Sansone (both of Wilco), and like their main project, provides quality twangy rock.

Dead Meadow, The Black Cadillacs, Mike Wexler @ Bowery Ballroom
Dead Meadow have been making '60s-inspired psychedelic rock for over a decade now, which they keep up on their most recent album, 2013's Warble Womb. Tonight's their first of two NYC shows this week, with a Glasslands show coming up on Saturday (2/15).

Cosmonaut, Ponyhof @ Mercury Lounge
Cosmonaut play catchy post-Strokes guitar pop, and do it well. Their EP from 2012 is packed with stick-in-your-head songs.

Sam Roberts Band, Heaven's Jail @ Mercury Lounge
Montreal singer-songwriter Sam Roberts may not get the attention some of his neighbors do, but he's been putting out consistently appealing albums since 2000. His latest, Lo-Fantasy, is out today via Paper Bag and you can stream it below.

Hey Rosetta! @ Rockwood Music Hall
Newfoundland orch-pop outfit Hey Rosetta! are known for their spirited, string-laden live shows. The band will be testing out material from their upcoming new album over two nights at Rockwood, this being the first.
