Sky Ferreira at Rough Trade in 2013 (more by Chris La Putt)
Sky F

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

Sky Ferreira @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
This show is a benefit for the David Lynch Foundation which "funds Transcendental Meditation (TM) programs for at-risk students; veterans with PTSD; women who are survivors of domestic violence; American Indians suffering from diabetes; the homeless and incarcerated." Sold out.

LAMC
The Latin Alternative Music Conference continues today, and among the day's events is a free multi-genre show at Central Park Summerstage with The Beatnuts, Ana Tijoux, Bodega Bamz and DJ Tony Touch.

Crosby, Stills and Nash @ Beacon Theater
One of the most distinctive harmony styles in rock music, David Crosby, Stephen Stills and Graham Nash's music has endured for over 40 years. This is the second of three nights at the Beacon.

Pokey LaFarge, Sturgill Simpson @ Bowery Ballroom
Pokey LaFarge's last album was his self-titled LP that came out last year via Third Man. It's a collection of old-timey folk with unpolished acoustic instrumentation that ignores modern folk trends, and instead sounds decades-old.

The Defibulators @ Bryant Park
And if old-timey sounds are your thing, you might wanna catch this early Defibulators show (6-7 PM) before heading to Bowery for Pokey.

Nightmares on Wax @ Irving Plaza
Nightmares on Wax helped pioneer the trip-hop sound while never being fully associated with the genre and has had records out on Mo'Wax, Warp, and Matador.

Yes, Syd Arthur @ Radio City Music Hall
The prog rock vets -- which are currently Chris Squire, Steve Howe, Alan White, Geoff Downes, and new(ish) vocalist Jon Davison -- hit one of NYC's toniest venues. If you're going, do check out openers Syd Arthur who do an appealing modern take on the genre.

Violent Bullshit, A Touch of North America, Ice Balloons, Colombian Necktie @ The Acheron
It's a good bill at Acheron tonight with heavy NYC punks Violent Bullshit (mems Orchid, Les Savy Fav, etc), psychedelic art punks Ice Balloons (mem TV on the Radio) and more.

Snoop Dogg @ The Capitol Theatre
Regardless of your thoughts on Snoop Dogg's recent name change to Snoop Lion and new reggae direction, it's undeniable that he's put out some of best rap of the golden era and plenty of unstoppable hits since then too. Plus, his live shows are always a great time. Tonight's his second of two NYC-area shows this week.

Greg Barris, Reggie Watts @ Union Hall
This is Greg Barris' "UNBUNNED" show which is a good chance to see Watts who just headlined Town Hall. Union Hall is slightly smaller. Tickets are still available.

The Felice Brothers, Robert Ellis @ Webster Hall
The Felice Brothers offer more of their rootsy folk rock on this year's Favorite Waitress, and tonight the band who played a handful of smaller NYC shows earlier this year, step up to the big Webster Hall.

Yung Lean, Don Christian, Black Kray (early and late shows) @ Marlin Room at Webster Hall
Teenage Swedish rapper Yung Lean is currently in the US where he'll play three NYC shows. Two at Marlin Room tonight, and a much smaller one at Palisades tomorrow.

Dave Alvin and Phil Alvin with The Guilty Ones, Jonah Tolchin with the Lonesome Angels @ City Winery
Dave and Phil Alvin are/were both members of veteran roots rock band The Blasters whose debut LP came out in 1980, and the pair just put out a new album together on Yep Roc this year. Their labelmate Jonah Tolchin also put one out on that label this year, which features a guest spot from Deer Tick's John McCauley.

Spazzkid, Ricky Eat Acid, Young Yeller, Photay @ Glasslands
It's a good night for electronic sounds at Glasslands tonight with the synth pop of Spazzkid, Ricky Eat Acid's sample-based music, former Chrome Sparks member Jesse Brickel's Young Yeller project, and IDM producer Photay.

French Style Furs, Sacco, Modern Vices @ Rough Trade
French Style Furs feature members of Cold War Kids and We Are Barbarians, and make the kind of anthemic indie you might expect. Chicago's Modern Vices open the show with their soulful take on garage pop.

Aye Nako, Pony Bones, Ovlov, Black Norse, Francis @ Silent Barn
NYC's Aye Nako make excellent melodic punk, and Pony Bones is the current band of Matt Robidoux who's currently on hiatus from Speedy Ortiz.

Big Terrific Comedy Show @ Cameo Gallery
Max Silvestri hosts the free weekly comedy show in the back of Williamsburg's Lovin' Cup. No word on who's performing tonight, but Max usually lets us know via his Twitter.

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

Andrew Bird in Chicago in 2013 (more by James Richards IV)
Andrew Bird

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


Andrew Bird (and The Hands of Glory), Luke Temple @ Central Park Summerstage
ndrew Bird's new band The Hands of Glory is an old timey acoustic configuration featuring Tift Merritt, Alan Hampton, Bowl of Fire alumnus Kevin O'Donnell, and Eric Heywood on pedal steel. Should make for a lovely evening under the stars. Free!

LAMC
The latin Alternative Music Conference kicks off today and runs through Saturday. Tonight's event is a free screening of Amor Cronico at El Museu del Barrio. More info here.

Crosby, Stills and Nash @ Beacon Theatre
One of the most distinctive harmony styles in rock music, David Crosby, Stephen Stills and Graham Nash's music has endured for over 40 years. This is the first of three nights at the Beacon.

Kitten, Kitty, Tempers @ Highline Ballroom
LA rock band Kitten headline this weirdly diverse bill, but we're mostly excited about the similarly named rapper Kitty who is always entertaining and goth duo Tempers. Like we said, this is a weird bill.

Mandolin Orange @ City Winery (Hudson Square Music & Wine Festival)
Mandolin Orange make old-timey folk, country and bluegrass that's unpolished and generally favoring sad songs. This is the first of two NYC shows they currently have scheduled (the other is in October) and it's a free, early one (5 PM).

Snoop Dogg, No Wahala DJs @ The Space at Westbury
Regardless of your thoughts on Snoop Dogg's recent name change to Snoop Lion and new reggae direction, it's undeniable that he's put out some of best rap of the golden era and plenty of unstoppable hits since then too. Plus, his live shows are always a great time. Tonight's his first of two NYC-area shows this week.

Mutant Supremacy, Boddicker, Nuclear Hellfrost, Creeping Dose @ The Acheron
Two Indiana metal/punk bands, Boddicker and Nuclear Hellfrost, are currently on the road together and today they hit the Acheron with solid likeminded locals Mutant Supremacy and Creeping Dose.

Bad Brains Live at CBGBs @ Nitehawk Cinema
This concert doc, which has been on DVD for some time, screens tonight with a post-screening Q&A with Darryl Jenifer from the Bad Brains and Sacha Jenkins.

Washer, Doubting Thomas Cruise Control, Abhay Singh & Friends, Swamp Babies @ Palisades
Tonight's a good chance to check out new-ish Bushwick venue Palisades if you haven't yet with this solid night of indie rock and other eccentric sounds.

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

Planning for Burial at Saint Vitus in 2011 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
PfB

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

Destruction Unit, White Hills, Ancient Ocean @ Baby's All Right
Arizona psychedelic punks Destruction Unit just put on two different but equally ripping shows in NYC this past week. Before they head home they'll squeeze in a third tonight. They're the kind of band you have to see live and the setlist is bound to be different than the last two.

Laced, Friend, Walkup, Greenfield @ Glasslands
Laced is a very new band featuring Dustin of Beach Fossils and Nude Beach drummer Ryan Naideau. In addition to some other bands -- this is a real friends and family show -- there's also a comedy set by Matt Kallman of Real Estate. Yes, you read that correctly.

Planning for Burial, Kosmodemonic, Gholas, My Mountain @ Grand Victory
Planning for Burial's new record Desideratum is an excellent blend of gloomy drone, gothy shoegaze, and hints of black/doom metal. Local sludge band Kosmodemonic are worth showing up for too.

Replica, La Misma, Razorheads, Public Hex @ Acheron
Replica, who feature members of No Statik and Infect, recently put out their Beast EP, a roaring burner of metallic hardcore. They were in NYC not long ago to open for Infest, and they return tonight for a show which features local greats La Misma and more.

The National 'Mistaken For Strangers' screening @ City Winery
The National's documentary, Mistaken for Strangers, directed by singer Matt Berninger's brother Tom (the film's sort of about him too), hit theaters back in March but if you still haven't seen it tonight you'll get another chance at City Winery for only $5.

Night Train with 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 Jen Kirkman, Damien Lemon, Phoebe Robinson, Rob Cantrell, and Michelle Wolf.

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...

Jock Club, Bookworms, Soren, Encapsulate @ Bossa Nova Civic Club
This free show is part of Ascetic House's long Independence Day Weekend in NYC. It includes Destruction Unit drummer Andrew Flores' electronic project Jock Club, L.I.E.S. producer Bookworms, Soren of Rosenkopf, and Encapsulate.

Honduras, Life Size Maps, Happy Lives, Chimes, Water @ Palisades
Honduras bring a lot of different influences to the table. A little garage, yes, but there's '80s/'90s British indie too. While it may not be anything you haven't exactly heard before, Honnduras write very hooky songs and, as importantly, the bring a real energy to the performance. Tonight they headline a solid bill of local bands.

Grateful Dead 'Sunshine Daydream' film screening @ City Winery
Beloved jam pioneers the Grateful Dead have a new documentary, Sunshine Daydream, which was shot at their August 27, 1972 concert at the Old Renaissance Faire Grounds in Veneta, Oregon. Head to City Winery tonight for a screening. RSVP here.

Hannibal Buress @ 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. Having had his own Comedy Central special and a featured performer on Broad City, Hannibal himself is getting pretty big league. Get there early.

Hundred Waters at Terminal 5 in 2013 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
100 Waters

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

Nancy Whang (The Juan Maclean/LCD Soundsystem) (DJ Set) @ Brooklyn Bowl
An integral member of LCD Soundsystem and The Juan Maclean, Nancy Whang knows how to keep a dancefloor full. Perhaps she'll drop one of the new Juan Maclean tracks from their forthcoming album.

Zongo Junction, Chicano Batman, KariKatura @ 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 entertainment is headlined by Brooklyn afrobeat band Zongo Junction.

Hundred Waters, Mas Ysa @ Glasslands
Hundred Waters make more of their eccentric art pop on this year's excellent The Moon Rang Like A Bell, with more electronics this time around (but not like the kinds their OWSLA labelmates use).

Bubbles, VnessWolfChild, Ryan Power, Trabajo, Brian Chase, Raul de Nieves, Cloud Becomes Your Hand, Dutch E Germ, Zero to 0 (Hisham Bharoocha & Ranjit Bhatnagar) @ Knockdown Center
The Knockdown Center is throwing a closing reception for its Anxious Spaces installation, with performances by Dutch E Germ, Bubbles, Brian Chase (of Yeah Yeah Yeahs), Trabajo, VenessWolfChild, Rul de Nieves, Cloud Becomes Your Head and more. Entrance is $7-15 sliding scale.

DJ EZ, Todd Edwards, Maxmillion Dunbar, Ramona Lisa, J-Cush @ MoMA PS1
A good way to get out early for the Saturday of your July 4th Weekend is to head to MoMA PS1 for the all-day Warm Up with yet another lineup of forward thinking electronic music. The show is the NYC debut of UK garage vet DJ EZ, and also includes American house vet Todd Edwards, RVNG's Maxmillion Dunbar, Chairlift singer Caroline Polachek's solo project Ramona Lisa, and Lit City Trax's J-Cush.

DJ EZ, Kissy Sell Out @ Output's Panther Room
Keep the party going late night with DJ EZ in Output's Panther Room.

The Robert Glasper Experiment ft. Talib Kweli, Glenn Kotche (of Wilco), Aja Monet @ Prospect Park Bandshell
It's another free Celebrate Brooklyn show in Prospect Park with a very diverse lineup headlined by jazz/hip hop collective The Robert Glasper Experiment who will be joined by Brooklyn rap great Talib Kweli.

Warthog, Leather Daddy, Jock's Blood, Ajax @ Saint Vitus
It's a great punk night at Saint Vitus, headlined by former The Men member Chris Hansell's band Warthog, who recently put out an excellent 7" on Iron Lung Records.

Widowspeak, Zachary Cale @ Union Pool
Union Pool's Saturday afternoon series "Summer Thunder" is a good one this week with Widowspeak and Zachary Cale. It's free, outside, with drink specials and the taco truck in the backyard (that actually serves brunch stuff), and a pretty fun way to spend your day.

Iron Chic, Cancers, Great Thunder, Now People @ Union Pool
Later that night at Union Pool, gruff Long Island punks Iron Chic return to Brooklyn for this show which is made a great double bill by Waxahatchee/Swearin' side project Great Thunder.

Destruction Unit @ Austin Psych Fest (more by Tim Griffin)
d-unit

Milk N Cookies
IMAGE

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

Destruction Unit, Uniform, Drew McDowall, Honey @ The Studio at Webster Hall
Destruction Unit's psychedelic punk piles on the aggression, is tripped-out as hell, and the kind of thing you just have to see live. If you're at all into this kind of stuff, D Unit is not to miss (good openers too). Though if you do miss it, or just need to see it again, a little birdie tells us you won't have to wait very long for that.

Milk 'n' Cookies, Spires, Ludwig Persik, High Waisted @ Baby's All Right
Legendary '70s cult "wimp rock" band Milk N Cookies could be seen as the originators of the sound nearly every band on Burger Records is trying to ape. With reissues due on Captured Tracks later this year, the band are back in action and tonight's is their first in NYC in ages.

The Black Lips, Night Birds, Night Beats @ House of Vans
House of Vans is gonna get roooooowdy tonight with the wild garage rockers Black Lips, skate/surf punk rippers Night Birds, and psych-garage trio Night Beats. It's free if you RSVPed (which is now closed), but still first come, first served.

Walter Martin (of The Walkmen) @ Madison Square Park
While his Walkmen bandmates Hamilton Leithauser and Peter Matthew Bauer have made serious solo records, Martin has gone a little lighter making a record with kids in mind that parents won't want to "accidentally" run over with the car. This show is part of the free "Oval Lawn Series."

Au Revoir Simone @ MoMA
Having been together for 10 years now, ARS still sound fresh on their most recent album, Move in Spectrums. Tonight's show is part of the MoMA Nights series and is free to attend with museum entry.

Vince Clarke of Depeche Mode, Daniel Miller @ MHOW
Two of the forefathers of what we now call synthpop, Vince Clarke (Depeche Mode, Erasure) and Daniel Miller (Mute Records founder who also released the seminal "Warm Leatherette" single as The Normal) will DJ tonight. Could be fun and if you go be sure to wish Vince a happy birthday!

Lydia Lunch, Doomsday Student, Tripping Landlocked Infidels @ Trans Pecos
No wave legend Lydia Lunch plays another NYC show tonight, and it should be a fun one: outside the venue at 5 PM and with a BBQ (inside if it rains). Also on the bill, Doomsday Student (ft. ex-member of noise rock vets Arab on Radar), Dark Sister, and Tripping Landlocked Infidels (aka Fritz Welch + Kevin Shea). The venue also hosts a $3 afterparty at 11 PM.

Motion Studies, Semi Femme, Maymind @ Union Pool
A night of postpunky fun to be had here, with Godmode-signed Motion Studies (DFA style dancerock), Semi-Femme (new band from Leif Anders of Orca Team), and Maymind (ex-Spanish Prisoners).

Also check out our guide to Fourth of July Weekend events in NYC.

Rooftop Films is in the midst of their 2014 season and Thursday's screening (7/3) happens at Industry City in Sunset Park. They're screeening Adam Newport-Berra's Thanksgiving, with a pre-movie performance by Reggie Watts who just played Town Hall. You can stick around for the afterparty sponsored by New Amsterdam Spirits. Doors are at 8 PM, Reggie's on at 8:30 PM and the movie's at 9 PM, rain or shine. Tickets are still available. As for the movie, here's the synopsis:

Alex & Amy are the perfect Brooklyn couple. They have a cat, a Thanksgiving table of bohemian friends, and a glowing future together. Yet the sudden holiday appearance of Amy's mysterious brother Will quickly disrupts their idyllic lifestyle and calls into question what we're truly "thankful" for.
After that, the next Rooftop Films screening is Saturday (7/5) at The Old American Can Factory in Gowanus. That night they're showing Russian/American documentary The Notorious Mr Bout with a live performance by Russian/American songwriter and Dirty Projectors collaborator Olga Bell. Tickets are available for that screening too. Trailer below...

Night Beats @ Austin Psych Fest 2014 (more by Tim Griffin)
NIght Beats

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

Night Beats, Beverly, LODRO, Roya @ Baby's All Right
Seattle psych/garage rockers Night Beats keeps things good and greasy on last year's Sonic Bloom. This is a pretty great bill with just-added Beverly (who's album came out this week), Roya (featuring members of Habibi and The Clean) and LODRO's sinister blues.

Au Revoir Simone, Little Daylight, Lower 48 @ Brooklyn Bowl
Having been together for 10 years now, ARS still sound fresh on their most recent album, Move in Spectrums. If you can't make this show, they'll play MoMA on Thursday.

Paul Collins' Beat, 1-800-BAND, Marvin Berry and The New Sound, Fletcher C. Johnson @ Cake Shop
Powerpop legend Paul Collins will surely fill Cake Shop to the sweaty brim tonight, with an excellent undercard of likeminded upstarts.

People, Child Abuse, Cellular Chaos, Angel of Retribution @ Death by Audio
Avant trio People features Mary Halvorson, Kevin Shea, and Crystal Stilts keyboardist Kyle Forester. Tonight's the record release show for their new album, 3xaWomen, and it's an all-around experimental/noisy bill.

Babe The Blue Ox, Ida @ Mercury Lounge
Two of NYC's longest running indie rock bands, who can say how many times these two have played together over the last 20 years?

SPEEDO>, Luke Temple, Austin Vaughn @ Manhattan Inn
Here We Go Magic's Luke Temple highlight's this free show at Manhattan Inn. The performance room is impossibly small, and in the round, making for a very memorable show environment.

Pinprick Punishment, Future Primitive, Agitator, A Truth, Geronimo @ Don Pedro
Pinpick Punishment make a vaguely experimental brand of hardcore that recalls classic '80s bands such as Black Flag and B'last. The Japanese crew are over in America on their current tour and have a few shows left, including tonight's in NYC.

Big Terrific Comedy Show @ Cameo Gallery
Max Silvestri hosts the free weekly comedy show in the back of Williamsburg's Lovin' Cup. No word on who's performing tonight, but Max usually lets us know via his Twitter.

Dave Hill, Bridey Elliot, Erik Bergstrom, Kara Klenk, Mike Recine, Alec Lambert, Boris Khaykin @ Muchmore's
If that's not enough comedy for your, here's another show in Williamsburg, this one at tiny Muchmore's featuring sometimes BV contributor Dave Hill and a host of other funny folk. Free.

Beck @ Detroit's Fox Theatre last week (more by James Richards VII)
IMAGE

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

Beck @ Central Park Summerstage
Beck put out his twelfth album this year, Morning Phase, which is his first in six years and he considers it the "companion piece" to 2002's Sea Change. The pastoral vibe of the album should work well in the lovely setting of Central Park.

Liquor Store, Glow God, Tournament, Ballroom @ Death by Audio
Oklahoma City's Glow God lay down the gauntlet via sludgy riffs. They're the only out-of-towners on this bill of local punk.

Pretty & Nice, Zula, The Sea Life, Leapling @ Glasslands
Boston trio Pretty & Nice specialize in nervy power pop, the kind that XTC and Joe Jackson did so well in 1979. P&N do it well too. Last year's Golden Rules For Golden People was terrific, lets hope a new one is out soon.

The Howlin' Brothers @ City Winery (Hudson Square Music & Wine Festival)
Part of the free Hudscon Square Music & Wine Festival, tonight's installment features Nashville's Howlin' Brothers who put a fresh coat of wax on the Mountain String Band sound.

Mournful Congregation, Lycus, Vilkacis, Evoken, Lord Mantis @ Saint Vitus
Martyrdoom III, the third annual five-day metal festival at Brooklyn's Saint Vitus, wraps up tonight with Australian funeral doomers Mournful Congregation, Oakland funeral doomers Lycus, Fell Voices-related black metal band Vilkacis, daeth doomers Evoken, and blackened sludge crew Lord Mantis.

Alpha Consumer, Heaven's Jail @ Knitting Factory
Heaven's Jail is the Brooklyn folk rock band led by Francesco Ferorelli who recently announced an album produced by and featuring Phosphorescent. If you're into Phosphorescent (or Deer Tick whose side project Heaven's Jail recently shared a bill with), you might want to check this out.
