Meat Puppets at Wicker Park Fest 2013 (more by Lindsey Best)
Here's a cool pairing. Alternative rock godfathers Meat Puppets will be teaming up with the newer and consistently impressive songwriter Cass McCombs for a co-headlining tour this fall. That tour includes a two-night stand in NYC at Rough Trade on Halloween and All Hallows Day (or Samhain, if you prefer). Meat Puppets headline on night 1 and they'll switch for night 2. Tickets for those shows go on sale Friday (8/1) at noon.
Meat Puppets' classic Meat Puppets II turned 30 earlier this year. Stream it, with a Cass McCombs video and a list of all dates, below...
Sharon Van Etten at Pitchfork Fest 2014 (more by James Richards IV)
Following the release of her most recent album, Are We There, Sharon Van Etten has been all over the place lately. Back in early July, Sharon brought her band for a 20 minute live performance on KEXP, which you can now watch in its entirety online. Then last week, after playing Pitchfork Fest, she stopped by on Letterman for a fantastic performance of "Every Time the Sun Comes Up." She also has a new video out for "Our Love." You can check out all those videos below.
She's also been featured performing on some other artists' songs. In addition to appearing on a recent Leverage Models song and video last year, she's featured on two tracks on the upcoming She Keeps Bees album, Eight Houses, which is out via Future Gods on September 16. (Sharon and She Keeps Bees are old pals.) There's a video for one of the songs featuring Sharon, titled "Is What It Is," which you can also watch below.
Sharon also has added some fall dates to her ongoing tour, including a run of dates with Tiny Ruins. Nothing with the two in NYC, unfortunately, but Tiny Ruins do have two smaller club shows here: August 9 at Mercury Lounge (tickets) with Cassie Ramone and August 10 at Baby's All Right (tickets) with Tashaki Miyaki, Weyes Blood and Belle Mare. The New Zealand folk act released their most recent album last month via Flying Nun and you can stream a track below.
She Keeps Bees, meanwhile, do have an upcoming NYC show on August 21 at Cameo with Eddi Front, and Raccoon Fighter. It's the kickoff date to their upcoming tour and tickets are on sale now.
All Sharon Jones and She Keeps Bees dates are listed, along with streams and videos, below.
LA band Meatbodies, who released a 7" on Ty Segall's God imprint and toured through NYC earlier this summer, have just announced their self-titled debut album, which will be out via In the Red on October 14. You can stream the very crunchy "Tremmors" from it in this post.
Meatbodies will be on tour this fall, doing stints with Purling Hiss and Hunters. In between those runs, they'll be in NYC for CMJ on October 23 & 24. No firm details yet, expect those to be revealed closer to the fest.
All dates are listed, along with the new song stream, below...
Dillinger Escape Plan at MHOW in 2013 (more by Rebecca Reed )
The Nine Inch Nails / Soundgarden tour hits the NYC-area this week, including the NJ show on Saturday (8/2) that The Dillinger Escape Plan open. Right before DEP hook up with that tour though, they'll headline a much smaller show in NYC on Thursday (7/31) at Saint Vitus with local-ish openers Torrential Downpour and Meek Is Murder, both of whom have a tech-y sound that will pair well with DEP, and Mothership. $5 tickets go on sale Tuesday (7/29) at noon. Flyer below.
The show is presented by Party Smasher Inc, the "collective of creative professionals and artistic provocateurs" that was founded by DEP guitarist Ben Weinman, and just recently launched their website, which is a "one-stop portal for musicians, photographers, illustrators, fashion designers and industry mavericks of all stripes."

Danzig at Riot Fest in 2013 (more by Kirstie Shanley)
Samhain now have a guitarist and a solidified lineup for their upcoming run of 30 Bloody Years dates. First, the addition: Peter Adams of Baroness. Says Peter, "I'm truly excited, It's a great honor to share the stage with Samhain on the 30th Anniversary of Initium! Samhain has helped shape how I've played music, and the music I've listened to, since I was a teenager and will continue to, on into the future. To be a part of this legacy is great beyond words!" The rest of the group is rounded out by Danzig Legacy players London May and Steve Zing. (Yep, no Eerie Von. Maybe next reunion.) And, you know, Glenn Danzig will be there. Samhain is set to play Riot Fest, Housecore Horror Fest, and Samhain Night at NYC's Best Buy Theater among other dates.
In related news (and mentioning them here might be the only way to get the two together besides a lawsuit), the Misfits have been added to GWAR-B-Q. They'll be joined by Jello Biafra, the other recent add to an expanded lineup that includes Hatebreed, Body Count, Revocation, Iron Reagan, Goatwhore, Noisem, and more. You can find the updated bill below. GWAR-B-Q will kick off on August 16 at Richmond, Virginia's Hadad's Lake.

Alvvays / Protomartyr @ Seaport Music Fest 7/11/2014
Canadian band Alvvays released their self-titled debut album last week (7/22) via Polyvinyl. It's fully of ridiculously catchy indiepop and gives terms like "winsome" a good name. If you haven't heard it yet you can stream it via Rdio. The band are currently in NYC and will play a record release show tonight (7/28) at Rough Trade. It's free and all ages, doors at 6:30 PM with the show starting at 7 PM.
Alvvays were here not too long ago, playing the kickoff show for the 2014 Seaport Music Festival (7/11) with Protomartyr. We already posted one set of pictures from that show, but another set is in this post. More pictures below...

AGBPOL at Brooklyn Night Bazaar in April (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Topshelf Records has put out a handful of excellent releases over the past few years, and this year four of its bands will head out on Topshelf's first-ever label tour. The tour showcases how diverse the label is at the moment, with A Great Big Pile of Leaves who make chilled-out mathy indie pop not unlike Minus the Bear, Diamond Youth who have kind of a QOTSA-meets-Weezer thing going on, Prawn who do justice to Kinsella-style emo, and Field Mouse who mix shoegaze and '90s-style alt-pop. The tour was announced earlier this month, but more dates have since been added including a NYC show happening October 2 at The Studio at Webster Hall. Tickets for that show are on sale now. All dates are listed below.
AGBPOL just played NYC when their tour with Braid hit MHOW (7/26) over the weekend. Prawn play here this weekend when their tour with Foxing and The Hotelier hits The Studio at Webster Hall on Saturday (8/2) (tickets).
All dates are listed, with streams of all four bands, below...

The Horrors @ Austin Psych Fest 2014 (more by Tim Griffin)
Dear friends, family, supporters, deadly sworn enemies and othersThe reshuffling of The Horrors' tours means postponing much of their fall North American tour with Moon Duo. West Coast dates are still happening, but the rest of the country will have to wait until later. Except NYC, that is: The Horrors' show at Music Hall of Williamsburg on November 5 has been canceled but the Stage 48 show, originally scheduled for November 4, will now happen on October 21. Tickets are still available, all previously purchased tickets will be honored, and refunds are available at point of purchase.
Unfortunately due to circumstances beyond our control we have had to reshuffle our US and European tours at the end of this year. We can only apologise to anyone who already has tickets to the dates affected - we hate cancelling shows but this situation was unavoidable. We'll be back on the road next year and make sure we return to all the places we missed on this run.

Black Cobra at SXSW 2012 (more by Greg Cristman)
Deafening duo Black Cobra will be heading out on the road for a month long tour with fellow thick-tone rockers Lo-Pan. The tour gets rolling at the end of August and winds through places like Austin, Boston, and Chicago. On September 18, the two will roll into NYC's Saint Vitus for an Invisible Oranges-presented show. Kings Destroy and Godmaker are also on the bill. Tickets for Saint Vitus are available now. All dates are listed below.
Black Cobra have racked up the miles this year, including a short jaunt with the recently reformed Cutthroats 9. They'll also be working on their next full-length with a prospective release window of early 2015. Tourmates and brothers in heft Lo-Pan will be dropping their new album Colossus through stoner sanctuary Small Stone Recordings on October 7. NYC doomers Kings Destroy are riding the positive press wave of sophomore release A Time of Hunting which came out last year. Finally, sludgesters Godmaker have been bringing the riffs at dates like the recent Mortals record release show.
