Pinback at ACL 2013 (more by Tim Griffin)
Deafheaven

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

Basilica Sound Scape
It's the second day of Basilica Sound Scape and there's an excellent music lineup with noise rock titans Swans, post-metal rippers Deafheaven, ripping punks White Lung, the always-intense Majical Cloudz and more. Plus there will be readings from White Lung singer Mish Way, Perfect Pussy singer Meredith Graves, poet Melissa Broder and more.

Atlas Sound, Ducktails, Mas Ysa @ Greenwood Park
As Atlas Sound, Deerhunter's Bradford Cox tones down the sonic assault his other band puts on in a live environment, but the songwriting is up a similar alley and equally strong. Tonight's show is with Real Estate side project Ducktails and Mas Ysa, and it's free.

Bob Mould, Cymbals Eat Guitars @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Between his time in Husker Du, Sugar, and a prolific solo career, the legendary Bob Mould has over three decades of great material to pull from for this week's 3 NYC shows, this being the third. Openers Cymbals Eat Guitars are not to be missed either. This year's LOSE is one of the year's most powerful indie rock albums.

Pinback, Tera Melos @ Irving Plaza
Indie rock vets Pinback are celebrating the tenth anniversary of their classic album Summer in Abaddon this year and are currently on tour in support of that. Math rockers Tera Melos are a bit different in style but a good match.

Phantogram, Action Bronson @ Pier 97
It's a double bill of indie pop from Phantogram and hip hop from Action Bronson on Pier 97 tonight, and if that sounds weird to you, don't forget Phantogram were prominent collaborators on the last Big Boi album.

The Members, The Say So's, Swanky Tiger, Darren Deicide @ The Studio at Webster Hall
Best known for their classic 1979 punk single "The Sound of the Suburbs," UK band The Members dabbled in pop ("Working Girl") and reggae ("Offshore Banking Business"). The band currently features songwriter/frontman JC Carroll, plus Chris Payne and Nigel Bennett all of whom were in the band during The Members classic period.

The Gaslight Anthem, Jimmy Eat World, Against Me! @ PNC Bank Arts Center
The Gaslight Anthem changed things up for their fifth album this year, but whether you like the new sound or not, they'll still likely have plenty of old favorites ready for tonight. And this whole bill is loaded. Against Me!, who put out one of their best albums of their career this year, kick off the night. Following them is Jimmy Eat World who plan to play Futures in full on tour this fall, but what will they play tonight?

Mutual Benefit, Soft Cat, Bellows @ Bowery Ballroom
Mutual Benefit makes hushed chamber pop that anyone into The Antlers or Sufjan should be a fan of. Openers are well-matched tonight too.

Teebs, Braille, Dave Q, Funafuji @ Cameo Gallery
Great night for electronic music at Cameo tonight with Brainfeeder producer Teebs and one half of Sepalcure, Braille.

Heavens Gate, Raw McCartney, Milk Dick, Bodega Bay, Pill @ Death By Audio
Out of the ashes of Sweet Bulbs, Heaven's Gate took some of their old band's dreamy noise, but took it in a significantly different direction, playing to singer strengths and became more of punky rock band... while still using a lot of effects pedals. Last year's debut album is a terrific representation of what Heaven's Gate have become -- confident, hooky, and pretty damn kick-ass.

S U R V I V E, Eaters, Isn't Ours @ Glasslands
Austin all-analogue synth quartet S U R V I V E, as you might suspect, make dark-hued, highly textured, creepy soundtracks of the mind, owing much to folks like Goblin, Tangerine Dream, and John Carpenter. They play tonight with Brooklyn duo Eaters who are very much in the same sonic cinema.

Brian Posehn @ Knitting Factory
Comedian, Mr. Show cohort, metal lover, podcaster, Deadpool writer and all around cool dude, Brian Posehn takes his act to a rock club setting tonight.

The Life and Times, Lives of the Obscure @ Knitting Factory
Post-hardcore vets Shiner briefly reunited a couple years back, and though that's over, singer Allen Epley is still active with his other band The Life and Times, who put out their fourth record this year.

Junglepussy, Celeste, Princess Nokia, DJ Patrick A Reed @ The Acheron
If you like rap in the UNO/Mykki Blanco/Le1f realm, this bill is full of that kinda stuff and should be right up your alley.

Power Trip, Ajax @ The Acheron
After the Junglepussy show, things get heavier at Acheron for this late show from Dallas thrash/crossover faves Power Trip and Brooklyn punks Ajax. Power Trip's 2 AM set at Palisades last night was nuts and tonight should be no different.

Widowspeak, Alex Bleeker & The Freaks @ The Lot in Long Island City
The Lot in Long Island City is a free, all ages music & film series and today's afternoon entertainment should be pretty chill, with the hushed sounds of Widowspeak, and Alex Bleeker's dead-y vibes.

Alarm Will Sound @ BAM
Part of Nonesuch Records at BAM, this is the second performance by 20-piece band Alarm Will Sound, tonight performing works by Tyondai Braxton, Steve Reich, and Donnacha Dennehy.

Youssou N'Dour @ BAM
Also part of Nonesuch Records at BAM (and Next Wave Festival), here's your second rare chancs to catch the acclaimed Senegalese singer-songwriter in a Stateside appearance.

Steely Dan @ The Paramount
Donald Fagen and Walter Becker bring Steely Dan's "Jamalot Ever After" tour to The Paramount for two nights, this being the first. Wear your bad sneakers if you like, but we have a feeling they don't serve pina coladas there.

People Like Us, M.C. Schmidt (of Matmos), Jason Willett @ Monty Hall (NJ)
People Like Us (aka Vicki Bennett) who is presenting "two performances of audio and moving image." She'll be first performing solo and then People Like Us will be joined by M.C. Schmidt (Matmos) and Jason Willett for a collaborative performance. This is at WFMU's Jersey City performance space.

Elephant Stone @ The Saint
Montreal's Elephant Stone share their name with a Stone Roses single and on their new album Three Poisons, they definitely embrace the Madchester baggy sound. They're pretty killer live -- and how often do you get to see a rock band with sitar?

Bastard Noise, Anthony Saunders, Andrew Hock, Chris Pitsiokos, Weasel Walter, HCOD, Penchant, Skinner, Arbiter, Negation, Field Graves @ Trans-Pecos
It's a crazy bill for noise at Trans Pecos tonight with Bastard Noise, Andrew Hock (Castevet, Psalm Zero) and so many more.

Life of Agony, A Pale Horse Named Death, Diablo Blvd @ Starland Ballroom
Before this year's European tour, Life of Agony hadn't played in a few years as singer Keith Caputo transitioned to Mina Caputo and took time to do her own thing (including open for Laura Jane Grace). Now they're back though, and tonight's the first hometown-area show.

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

White Lung at Bowery Ballroom in 2013 (more by Fred Pessaro)
White Lung
White Lung

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

White Lung, Power Trip, Sick Feeling @ Palisades (MIDNIGHT)
The next BrooklynVegan-curated installment of Red Bull Sound Select is this late show tonight and we hope you're as excited about it as we are. It's co-headlined by one of the most menacing yet melodic punk bands around, Vancouver's White Lung, and Texas's Power Trip, who do crazy justice to the sounds of early thrash and crossover bands. Opening is Sick Feeling, a newer band from Brooklyn with members of Ink & Dagger, Trail of Dead, Trash Talk and more. It's only $3 at the door if you RSVP ($10 if you don't), and with its midnight start there's even time to catch another show or grab a drink with friends beforehand. Entry is on a first come, first served basis. See you there!

Shannon and the Clams,TacocaT, Las Rosas @ Palisades
Before our late night show is this third sold-out NYC show this week with Oakland, CA's Shannon & The Clams, made extra fun with the addition of Seattle's surfy/poppy TacocaT. Sold out, but if you're going...do stick around for our late night show.

Karen O @ Le Poisson Rouge
It's the fourth and final night of Yeah Yeah Yeahs singer Karen O's run of intimate shows in NYC, and the first at a regular venue. The shows are in support of Karen's equally intimate Crush Songs, her first solo album (but recorded seven years ago).

Animal Collective (DJ set) @ Brooklyn Bowl
Panda Bear's busy this year touring and prepping his next solo album, but the other AnCo members are finding time to do other things like DJ sets, tonight's being their first of three upcoming gigs at Brooklyn Bowl (they're doing one a month until November). Tonight it will just be Geologist and Deakin, but Avey Tare joins at the next two dates.

The Young, Charly Bliss @ Mercury Lounge
The Young's new LP is a great dose of psychedelic punk and a step up from their last. Tonight's their second of two NYC shows this week.

Fascinator, The Stevens, Willful Boys @ Don Pedro
This is a late add for Melbourne's The Stevens (Pavement-style indie rock) whose NYC plate is already pretty full. This is an all-Australian bill, with expats Willful Boys opening the night.

Pleasure Leftists, Ivy, The Lawsuits, Mercury Rising @ The Acheron
If you're into modern bands taking on '80s post-punk, Cleveland's Pleasure Leftists are one of the bands that do it well. Their punky Katorga Works labelmates Ivy are worth catching too.

Mad Juana, Cheetah Chrome, Miriam, John Cooper Clarke @ Bowery Electric
This is a pretty stacked bill for fans of veteran punk and garage rock. Dead Boy Cheetah Chrome plays (his second of three NYC shows this week), as does UK punk poet John Cooper Clarke (his first of four NYC shows here), who hasn't played the US since the '70s. A-Bones drummer/singer and Norton Records co-founder Miriam plays, and it's one of her first few shows with this project. She plays again next month with The Muffs.

Sylvan Esso, Doe Paoro @ Bowery Ballroom
Watching the crowds at their shows opening for tUnE-yArDs (and on their own) it was clear Sylvan Esso have an audience of their own which is growing by the minute. Tonight is sold out... next stop Terminal 5.

Jad Fair, Danielson, Don Fleming, Jeffrey Lewis & Peter Stampfel @ Glasslands
Prolific cult artist Jad Fair released a collaborative album with Danielson, titled Solid Gold Heart, and they're playing together tonight, with longtime Jad Fair collaborator Kramer (whose label Shimmydisc released a lot of Fair's records) will be part of the ensemble.

Darkside in Chicago in January (more by Brigid Gallagher)
Darkside

Darkside, Valentin Stip @ Brooklyn Masonic Temple
Nicolas Jaar and Dave Harrington successfully combined ambient electronics and progressive rock on their 2011 EP and 2013 LP (their only two releases), but unfortunately their collaborative project is coming to an end ("for now"). Tonight's their last show before the break, and their pal Valentin Stip is along for the ride. Naturally, it's sold out.

Lemonade, Starchild @ Baby's All Right
NYC synth trio Lemonade just released their new album, Minus Tide, via Cascine. Continuing to hone their style, the new LP is perhaps their most focused yet, matching '80s pop smarts to an effervescent balearic production. Tonight's the record release party

Alarm Will Sound (music by John Adams) @ BAM
Part of Nonesuch Records at BAM, this is Night 1 of a two evening event featuring 20-member Alarm this featuring music by John Adams, including Son of Chamber Symphony, Chamber Symphony, Scratchband, and "an arrangement of Hoodoo Zephyr."

Youssou N'Dour @ BAM
Also part of Nonesuch Records at BAM (and Next Wave Festival), here's two rare chances to catch the acclaimed Senegalese singer-songwriter in a Stateside appearance. This is Night 1.

Richard Reed Parry, Michael Chapman, Tim Hecker, Julia Holter, Gamelan Dharma Swara, Endless Boogie, more @ Basilica Sound Scape
This two-day festival returns to Hudson, NY with a varied bill of challenging sounds in a bucolic setting. Friday's kickoff features Arcade Fire's Richard Reed Parry, British folk veteran Michael Chapman, readings, and... endless boogie-ing. Also: Endless Boogie.

Chromeo, Big Freedia @ Central Park Rumsey Playfield
Montreal electro duo Chromeo know their way around a hook and have no problem pouring on the cheese (with a wink). Tonight's show is with bounce queen Big Freedia.

Bummers Eve, Foster Care, White Pages, Dead Wrestler @ Death By Audio
Cincinnati trio Bummers Eve headline this night of snarly punk rock, the kind that always sounds good at DbA. Enjoy it while it lasts.

Shonen Knife, Habibi, The Suzan @ The Wick
Japanese cult pop/punk trio Shonen Knife put out a new album, Overdrive, this year and tonight play Bushwick with a very well-chosen undercard.

The Detroit Cobras, Hector's Pets, Blaire Alise and The Bombshells @ Bell House
Long-running garage rock cover band Detroit Cobras take on anyone from the Chiffons to Otis Redding to the Oblivians (whose Greg Oblivian is often on their recordings),

Diane Cluck @ Rockwood Music Hall
Diane Cluck at times echoes the psychedelic folk singers of the late '60s and at others the freak folk movement of the 2000s. No matter what she's doing, it's good stuff. Tonight's her second of two Rockwood shows this week.

Noble Hunter, Jennifer Castle, Nevada Color @ Cameo Gallery
Canada's Jennifer Castle makes quality folk on her new album, which features string arrangements by Owen Pallett. Tonight's her second of two NYC shows this week.

White Denim, Clear Plastic Masks @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Austin's jam scene-approved rockers White Denim are on night three of a three-night at Music Hall of Williamsburg tonight. Their current tour is continuing to support last year's Jeff Tweedy-produced Corsicana Lemonade.

Fletcher C. Johnson, Games, Zapps @ Union Pool
If you like garage rock, power pop, Burger Records, jeans jackets, wearing buttons on your jeans jacket, and "rock n' roll" as a ethos, tonight's show will likely appeal.

Christopher Cross @ City Winery
With "Sailing," Christopher Cross is pretty much the "yacht" in Yacht Rock. Go to this tonight and you will literally be caught between the moon and New York City. It's crazy, but it's true.

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

Bob Mould at Williamsburg Park in 2012 (more by Sachyn Mital)
Bob Mould

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

Karen O @ McKittrick Hotel
Karen O's first (but recorded 7 years ago) solo album, Crush Songs, is out now, and unlike Yeah Yeah Yeahs' increasingly bigger sounding music, it's raw introverted bedroom folk. This week's four intimate shows (tonight's being the third) should fit the sound well.

Bob Mould, Cymbals Eat Guitars @ Bowery Ballroom
Between his time in Husker Du, Sugar, and a prolific solo career, the legendary Bob Mould has over three decades of great material to pull from for this week's 3 NYC shows, this being the second. Openers Cymbals Eat Guitars are not to be missed either. This year's LOSE is one of the year's most powerful indie rock albums.

Ducktails, Limited, The Stevens @ Baby's All Right
Real Estate guitarist Matt Mondanile takes center stage with Ducktails, whose music isn't so far off from his other group's jangle. Ducktails guitarist Alex Craig, meanwhile, fronts the '80s-romo-loving Limited. Do get there early to catch Australia's terrific The Stevens.

Philip Glass Ensemble, Steve Reich @ BAM
Nonesuch Records' 50th anniversary at BAM continues with the third of three collaborative nights of contemporary composer greats Philip Glass and Steve Reich, their first live collaborations in over thirty years.

Shannon and the Clams, Liquor Store, Juniper Rising, Hobocop @ Death By Audio
With a sound straight out of the early days of Rock n' Roll, Shannon & the Clams bring big hooks and personality (and a lot of fun) to the table. This is Shannon's second  of three sold-out NYC shows this week.

The Young, Fly Golden Eagle, Degreaser @ Glasslands
The Young's new LP is a great dose of psychedelic punk and a step up from their last. Tonight they return to NYC for their first of two shows here this week.

Man or Astro-Man?, The Pack A.D. @ Mercury Lounge
Everyone's favorite sci-fi surf punk band Man or Astro-Man? are back in town for two NYC shows this week, tonight's being the second.

The Sharp Things, Jennifer Castle, Meredith Young @ Mercury Lounge
Canada's Jennifer Castle makes quality folk on her new album, which hearkens back to the cult singers of the late '60s/early '70s and features string arrangements by Owen Pallett. Tonight's her first of two NYC shows this week.

Cheetah Chrome (acoustic), Threats, Knucklehead (acoustic) @ Niagara
Punk veteran Cheetah Chrome (of Dead Boys) has a few NYC gigs scheduled this week. This one's on the intimate side.

Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, Steve Winwood @ PNC Bank Arts Center
Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers put out their 13th album this year, Hypnotic Eye, and they're also responsible for some of the most massive heartland rock hits dating back to the 1970s. We should get a little of everything tonight.

Sylvan Esso, Landlady @ Rough Trade
Watching the crowds at their shows opening for tUnE-yArDs (and on their own) it was clear Sylvan Esso have an audience of their own which is growing by the minute.  Like Friday's Bowery Ballroom show, this one is sold out... next stop Terminal 5.

Naomi Punk, Sleepies, Nine of Swords, Low Fat Getting High @ Shea Stadium
This is a good bill of NYC punk bands, and they're promising a special guest headliner which we can presumably at least narrow down to genre. Who do you think it is? UPDATE: It's Naomi Punk.

Elephant Stone, Lunifred Benjamin, High Waisted @ The Rock Shop
Montreal's Elephant Stone share their name with a Stone Roses single and on their new album Three Poisons, they definitely embrace the Madchester baggy sound. They're pretty killer live -- and how often do you get to see a rock band with sitar?

Museum of Love (Pat Mahoney + Jee Day), Tiger & Woods, Jacques Renault @ Verboten
While Museum of Love do play live as a band (and a good one too), tonight's a DJ night for Pat & Jee Day.

Nik Turner's Hawkwind, Witch Mountain, Hedersleben, Tonstartssbandht @ Marlin Room at Webster Hall
Sax and flute man Nik Turner was a member of Hawkwind in the '70s and '80s and now fronts his own version of the Spacerock pioneers. His backing band, Hedersleben, gets their own opening set, and first up is Montreal/NYC experimental duo Tonstartssbandht.

Ukiah Drag, Uniform, Crazy Spirit, Survival, Nick Klein @ Saint Vitus
The Ukiah Drag make heavy psych punk on their new LP which really is a trip. Tonight's a joint release part for that and the new one from local noisemakers Uniform (ex-The Men, Drunkdriver).

White Denim, Clear Plastic Masks @ MHOW
Austin's jam scene-approved rockers White Denim are on night two of a three-night at Music Hall of Williamsburg tonight. Their current tour is continuing to support last year's Jeff Tweedy-produced Corsicana Lemonade.

Diane Cluck @ Rockwood Music Hall

Spoon at FFF 2011 (more by Tim Griffin)
Spoon

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

Spoon, !!! , Operators (ex-Wolf Parade) @ Central Park Rumsey Playfield
Having released the terrific They Want My Soul earlier this summer, Britt Daniel and the new line-up of Spoon play this sold out show tonight. (They were great at the McKittrick secret show back in August.) In addition to punk-funk exclamationists !!!, Dan Boeckner's new band Operators open tonight... and between them and Spoon, the entire lineup of Divine Fits will be there tonight, so it's not out of the realm of possibilities that we might bet a song or two from that.

Karen O @ McKittrick Hotel
Karen O's first (but recorded 7 years ago) solo album, Crush Songs, is out now, and unlike Yeah Yeah Yeahs' increasingly bigger sounding music, it's raw introverted bedroom folk. This week's four intimate shows (tonight's being the second) should fit the sound well.

Bob Mould, Cymbals Eat Guitars @ Bowery Ballroom
Between his time in Husker Du, Sugar, and a prolific solo career, the legendary Bob Mould has over three decades of great material to pull from for this week's 3 NYC shows, this being the first. Openers Cymbals Eat Guitars are not to be missed either. This year's LOSE is one of the year's most powerful indie rock albums.

Dead Rider, Dan Friel, Advaeta @ Baby's All Right
Chicago's Dead Rider (ex-US Maple) headline this night of experimental music, noise and general out-there vibes.

Philip Glass & Steve Reich @ BAM (Howard Gilman Opera House

Brad Mehldau, Chris Thile @ BAM (Harvey Theater)

Man or Astro-Man?, The Pack A.D., Wray @ Brooklyn Bowl

Naomi Punk, PC Worship, Laced, Psychic Blood @ Palisades
This bill is loaded with raw DIY-minded rock with the grungy Naomi Punk, the noisy PC Worship, the Beach Fossils/Nude Beach-related Laced, and more noise/grunge from Psychic Blood.

Nick Waterhouse, PEP @ Rough Trade
LA classic soul/R&B lover Nick Waterhouse, who has made his way through NYC twice this year already, is back to lay down some live grooves, many of which are from his new album, Holly.

Austin's jam scene-approved rockers White Denim kick off a three-night at Music Hall of Williamsburg tonight. Their current tour is continuing to support last year's Jeff Tweedy-produced Corsicana Lemonade.

"ASK ANDREW LIVE" w/ Andrew WK @ Santos Party House
This is billed as "a night of in-person intimate advice on life, love and" -- yep, you guessed it -- "partying."

The Stevens, Free Time @ Cake Shop
Melbourne's The Stevens pull from a variety of landmark indie rock -- The Clean, Guided by Voices, Pavement -- but don't sound quite like any of them. The band's debut album,The History of Hygiene, is 24 tracks of lo-to-mid-fi shambly pop perfection. No doubt there is a lot of this type of stuff out there, but The Stevens make superior product

Jason Lescalleet, Decimus @ Body Actualized Center
Drone/sound collage master Jason Lescalleet just played a collaborative show at Trans-Pecos with Kevin Drumm, and tonight he's back in solo mode for this show at Body Actualized Center.

Karen O @ McKittrick Hotel
Karen O's first (but recorded 7 years ago) solo album, Crush Songs, is out now, and unlike Yeah Yeah Yeahs' increasingly bigger sounding music, it's raw introverted bedroom folk. This week's four intimate shows (starting with tonight's) should fit the sound well.

Philip Glass Ensemble & Steve Reich & Musicians @ BAM
Nonesuch Records' 50th anniversary at BAM begins today, and kicking off the celebration is the first live collaboration in over thirty years from contemporary composer greats Philip Glass and Steve Reich. They're in the Howard Gilman Opera House, and Brad Mehldau will be performing in the Harvey Theater.

Elephant Stone, Painted Zeros @ Mercury Lounge
Montreal's Elephant Stone share their name with a Stone Roses single and on their new album Three Poisons, they definitely embrace the Madchester baggy sound. They're pretty killer live -- and how often do you get to see a rock band with sitar?

Laurel Halo @ The Kitchen

Justin Townes Earle makes more of his classic-sounding folk/country on his new album, Single Mothers, which is out today on Vagrant.

Death From Above 1979 @ Rough Trade
Ten years since their the debut album, Canadian band DFA1979 finally get around to making its follow-up, Physical World, which sounds like they haven't skipped a beat. Fuzzed-out bass, disco drumming intact. This is a record release show and the smallest place they've played in NYC in a looong time.

Wavves, Habibi, Big Muff Radio @ Baby's All Right
Wavves have officially gone from lo-fi noisemakers to real-deal pop punks, and the new sound suits them well. And seeing these bangers live is where it's at, especially at a small place like Baby's. Expect wildness.

Pontiak, Jaye Jayle, TBA @ Saint Vitus
Get a double dose of psychedelia at Vitus tonight from Thrill Jockey's Pontiak and Jaye Jayle, the solo project of Young Widows' Evan Patterson, who ditches the heavier sounds of his main band for this one.

Die Antwoord, DJ Cindy Kim @ Irving Plaza
Totally in-your-face eccentrics Die Antwoord are a thing of their own, and tonight's your first of two chances to experience it in the flesh in NYC this week. Tomorrow they're at Terminal 5.

Weeknight, Martial Canterel, TBA @ The Acheron
A double-header of gothy synth action, hit the lonesome road with Weeknight, and dance to the neo-luddite world of Martian Canterel (aka Xeno & Oaklander's Sean McBride).

Ask Me Another w/ Gail Simmons @ Bell House
WNYC's "Ask Me Another" is a live radio taping that combines "brainteasers and local pub trivia night with comedy and music." Tonight's special guest is Food & Wine editor and Top Chef host Gail Simmons.

This is a benefit show, featuring old friends Cocorosie and Antony, for the upcoming exhibition FUTURE FEMINISM which happens at The Hole starting next week.

Mineral, Into It. Over It. @ Bowery Ballroom
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 last of four sold-out NYC shows, all of which are opened by newer emo band Into It. Over It.

Future Punks, Prince Rupert's Drops, Truthers @ 45 Orchard

Punch, Crushed, Curmudgeon, Water Torture @ Death by Audio
If you like totally cathartic, rapid-fast hardcore, Punch is not to be missed. Water Torture do a good job at satisfying a similar craving too.

clipping., Haleek Maul, Tallesen @ Glasslands
Sub Pop avant-rappers clipping. have been on tour with their labelmates Shabazz Palaces, and if you dig what Shabazz does, you'll likely be into clipping. as well.

Theologian, Megaton Leviathan, Kosmodemonic, Vailtal Deul @ Acheron
Megaton Leviathan make an atmospheric mix of doom and psych, and their tour with Vailtal Deul hits Acheron tonight. Also on the bill is death-synth artist Theologian and psych metallers Kosmodemonic.

Wedding Dress, Future of What, Unicycle Loves You, Lightfoils, Slim Twig @ Baby's All Right
Wedding Dress feature members of Maps & Atlases and Joan of Arc, and though they make more laid back, indie pop-leaning stuff here than their main projects, fans of both are still likely to dig. Tonight's their second NYC show of the weekend.

Sir Richard Bishop (of Sun City Girls), Tashi Dorji @ Monty Hall (NJ)
Guitar master and Sun City Girl member Richard Bishop plays tonight at WFMU's performance space in Jersey City with Bhutanese guitarist Tashi Dorji.

Buzzcocks at Coachella 2012 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Buzzcocks

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

Buzzcocks, Titus Andronicus @ Webster Hall
This is an excellent generation-crossing bill for punk, with one of the best bands of the era -- no qualifiers necessary -- Buzzcocks, and one of today's finest bands in the genre, NJ's Titus Andronicus (who have headlined this venue themselves before).

Mineral, Into It. Over It. @ Bowery Ballroom
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 third of four sold-out NYC shows, all of which are opened by newer emo band Into It. Over It.

Skrillex, Evian Christ, Sophie, Lone @ MoMA PS1
It's the final Warm Up of the summer, and one of the best lineups of the season with Kanye collaborator Evian Christ, buzzy dancepop producer Sophie (best known so far for "Bipp" and "Hey QT"), and IDM raver Lone. Plus, special guests are promised. UPDATE: Skrillex is the headliner for the last Warm-Up. Not a joke. Also Forest Swords dropped off.

Evian Christ, Sophie, NGUZUNGUZU, The Deep @ 88 Palace
There's two ways you can keep the party going after Warm Up, this being one...

Lone (Live AV ft Konx-om-Pax), Aurora Halal (DJ Set), Konx-om-Pax (DJ Set) @ Glasslands
...and this being the other.

Fucked Up, Speedy Ortiz, Give @ Irving Plaza
Fucked Up may make highly ambitious punk records, but in a live setting they play like great punk bands always have: fast, loud and rowdy. Indie rockers Speedy Ortiz aren't to miss either, and DC punks Give should be a nice start to the night as well.

The Velvet Teen, Shy Hunters, Sunflower Bean @ Baby's All Right
All three of The Velvet Teen's albums are different, with the indie rock of 2002's Out of the Fierce Parade, the more ballady Elysium (2004), and the frenetic, eccentric sounding Cum Laude (2006). They haven't released a new album since that one, but they're promising that its followup will finally come out this year. Maybe we'll hear some new stuff today.

Fujiya & Miyagi, Zorch @ Brooklyn Bowl
Fujiya & Miyagi's new album, Artificial Sweetners, is their most synth-heavy yet, but otherwise keeps their brand of motorik funk pretty much intact. Their drummer for this tour is onetime Dirty on Purpose rhythm-master, Doug Marvin.

Cayetana, Chumped, Albondigas, Spirit of the Beehive @ Saint Vitus
Cayetana's great debut album comes out next week on Tiny Engines. It's a solid mix of indie rock, punk energy, and folky songwriting that Waxahatchee/Speedy Ortiz fans should find will be up their alley. See them tonight ahead of its release, and it's worth getting there in time for Brooklyn poppy punks Chumped too.

Cerebral Ballzy, Unstoppable Death Machines, Shellshag, Cutters, Sunny Gang @ Brooklyn Night Bazaar
It's another night of free music and not-free food, drinks, arcade games, shopping and more at the Brooklyn Night Bazaar. Tonight's music lineup leans towards the punk side.

BELLS≥, Wedding Dress, Jumpers, Six Acre Lake @ Cake Shop
The Mineral show isn't the only place you can see emo vets in NYC tonight. BELLS≥ (members of Jawbox) and Wedding Dress (members of Joan of Arc and Maps & Atlases) team up at Cake Shop tonight.

California X, Slothrust, Mannequin Pussy, Vomitface @ Death By Audio
California X make sludgy rock that's somewhere between Dinosaur Jr and Torche, and they really shine in a live environment. NYC punks Mannequin Pussy are worth catching too.

Sole, DJ Pain, Pictureplane, Ceschi @ Glasslands
Alt-rapper Sole and his collaborator DJ Pain team with NYC electronic producer/all around fun guy Pictureplane for this show at Glasslands tonight.

Papercuts, Olson, Rydholm and Forester, Michael Nau @ Mercury Lounge
If you dig rainy day baroque pop, Papercuts (the moniker of San Francisco's Jason Quever) do it very well and their new record, Life Among the Savages, is quite good. Opening are Ladybug Transistor offshoot Olson, Rydholm and Forester.

Sir Richard Bishop (of Sun City Girls), Tashi Dorji @ Issue Project Room
Guitar master and Sun City Girl member Richard Bishop plays tonight with Bhutanese guitarist Tashi Dorji.

Loren Connors, Aki Onda, VioletRaid, Silk Purse @ Trans-Pecos
Avant-guitar great Loren Connors has an impressive resume, having collaborated with Thurston Moore, Cat Power, Kath Bloom and others. Catch him solo tonight.

Hollis Brown, Jonny Fritz @ The Lot In Long Island City (FREE)
The Lot in Long Island City is a free, all ages music & film series and today's afternoon entertainment includes country hellraiser Jonny "Corndawg" Fritz.

Ian Hunter and The Rant Band, Wreckless Eric & Amy Rigby @ The Bell House
Mott the Hoople frontman Ian Hunter and Wreckless Eric are both on this bill, which is a pretty cool pairing, and among other things it most likely means we'll get to hear "All the Young Dudes" and "Whole Wide World" at the same show.

Modern Baseball, I Am The Avalanche, Beach Slang @ Stone Pony
Modern Baseball and Beach Slang are two Philly bands who really know how to tap into the feelings of youth (the only difference is the actual ages of the members). Tonight's their second NYC-area show of the weekend, and this one also includes grungy punks I Am the Avalanche.

Aphex Twin album listening party
Get your first chance to hear SYRO at this listening party, location TBA, if you RSVP'd in time and got picked to go.

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

Sonny and the Sunsets in Austin in 2013 (more by Glen Brown)
Sonny

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

Sonny and the Sunsets, Cassie Ramone, The Whips @ Death by Audio
Sonny Smith is putting the finishing touches his and The Sunsets' new album which should be out early next year. In the meantime, he and the new line-up of The Sunsets (with Shayde from Fresh & Onlys on bass) are on tour. A real charmer, any opportunity to catch Sonny should be seized.

Mineral, Into It. Over It. @ Bowery Ballroom
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 second of four sold-out NYC shows, all of which are opened by newer emo band Into It. Over It.

Mike Birbiglia @ BAM
Comedian, actor, and master of self-deprecating storytelling, Mike Birbiglia is no stranger to BAM, having recently appeared in This American Life: One Night Only at BAM (which actually ended up having two nights). Tonight he debuts his new show, "Thank God For Jokes."

Modern Baseball, Beach Slang, Chumped, Crow Bait @ Brooklyn Night Bazaar
If you're not going to Mineral, but still want something to emo tonight (or are looking for plans after -- BK Bazaar is open til 1 AM), this free show has your fix. There's the youthful and super lyrical Modern Baseball, the Jawbreaker-meets-Replacements and endlessly quotable Beach Slang, poppy punks Chumped, and alt-country punks Crow Bait. Good night all around.

Papercuts, Olson, Rydholm and Forester, Michael Nau @ Baby's All Right
If you dig rainy day baroque pop, Papercuts (the moniker of San Francisco's Jason Quever) do it very well and their new record, Life Among the Savages, is quite good. Opening are Ladybug Transistor offshoot Olson, Rydholm and Forester.

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 second of two shows at Irving Plaza this week, with strong support coming from psych rapper Edan and his collaborator Paten Locke.

Total Slacker, PAWS, Flashlights @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
This whole bill is good, but we especially recommend catching Scottish trio PAWS while they're in town. Their brand of Japandroids-style pop punk/indie rock works especially well and they put on fun shows.

Part Time, Sea Lions, ONWE @ Cake Shop
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.

Mount Sharp, Sunset Hearts, The Van Burens, Moon Furies @ Pianos
Brooklyn trio Mount Sharp are refreshingly gimmick free, with singer Sarah Wood's strong songwriting and appealing vocals setting their fuzzy guitar pop apart from the pack.

Twisted Sister, Adrenaline Mob @ Best Buy Theater
Skintight pants, moussed up hair, and anthems about not taking it and wanting to rock still your bag? Best Buy Theater's the place to be then.

Rudimental, Redlight, My Nu Leng @ Terminal 5
Rudimental's style of UK dancepop may not be as heady as say, Disclosure's or SBTRKT's, but it's certainly made for some on-stage spectacles at their live shows.

Saul Williams, Osekre & The Lucky Bastards, Patrice, Koku Gonza @ Le Poisson Rouge
Part of the multicultural Aputumpu Fall Festival series, this show is headlined by singer, musician, poet, writer, and actor Saul Williams.

Dither, Andrea Parkins & Brian Chase (of YYYs), Cleric, DJ Rupture, Lee Ranaldo, Tigue, Brandon Seabrook & more at St. Ann & the Holo Trinity Church
It's the fifth annual Dither Extravangza, a new music event led by electric guitar quartet Dither, and it has a great lineup including members of Sonic Youth, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and more.

Champagne Jerry, Lil Freckles @ Union Pool
Tongue-in-cheek Brooklyn rapper -- and Ad-Rock collaborator -- Champagne Jerry plays somewhere that's not Joe's Pub for once. Maybe Jerry will pull Bridget Everett and Carmine Covelli along with him for this show?

Social Distortion, The Whigs, Jonny Two Bags @ The Paramount
Veteran punk rockers Social Distortion don't hit NYC on their current tour, but they'll be nearby for tonight's Long Island show, their second in the area.

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

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.
