The emo reunions have been aplenty lately (like American Football, Mineral, The Jazz June, etc), and here's another one to get excited about: Rainer Maria! They've just announced that they'll be headlining NYC's Bowery Ballroom on New Year's Eve this year, which may just be the best way your emo self can ring in the new year in NYC. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (10/17) at noon
with an AmEx presale starting Wednesday (10/15) at noon (update: no presale). It's their only announced date at the moment but we'll let you know if we hear of more.
Rainer Maria were initially around from 1995 to 2006, when they played their final show at Northsix (what is now Music Hall of Williamsburg). Like fellow emo reuniters American Football, Rainer Maria were on Polyvinyl for most of their career and put out several albums for the label including classics like 1997's Past Worn Searching, 1999's Look Now Look Again, 2001's A Better Version of Me and more. Revisit some classic material below...
In news that is both very heavy and very late '80s, NYHC vets Sheer Terror are playing an NYC show at Music Hall of Williamsburg on December 27 with Boston hardcore legends Slapshot for a "30th Anniversary Bash." The show will also feature support from younger local hardcore crews Heavy Chains, Blind Justice and Vice. Sheer Terror, who are playing a few other shows in the coming months (including ones in NJ and Oneonta), released their first album in 18 years earlier this year, so one would expect plenty of material from that to be played, in addition to the career summation that "30th Anniversary" suggests. Tickets for the MHOW show will go on sale Friday (10/17) at noon.
All Sheer Terror dates are listed, along with live videos of Sheer Terror and Slapshot, below.

The WFUV Holiday Cheer benefit is returning to Beacon Theatre on December 8 this year, and once again it's looking like it's gonna be a good one. Conor Oberst & friends are playing, though which friends exactly and any openers are still TBA. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (10/17) at noon.
Conor's also got a California show around then and a Mexican festival in January. All of hits dates are listed, with a video from his 2014 album Upside Down Mountain, below...
Manilla Road at Chaos in Tejas 2013 (more by Fred Pessaro)
Classic Kansas power-metal outfit Manilla Road were initially around from the late '70s to the early '90s before going on hiatus, but they picked back up again in 2001 and have been going strong ever since with frontman Mark "The Shark" Shelton as the only constant member. They're on tour overseas right now in support of their latest LP, 2013's Mysterium, and US fans will get their first chance this year to see Mark and company in November. They'll play shows in Chicago and Baltimore before they stop in NYC to play two shows at Saint Vitus on November 22 and 23. The first night they'll be joined by Weed Is Weed and Polygamist (tickets), and the second show will feature support from Brooklyn thrash mainstays Natur and Python (tickets).
Check out a video of Manilla Road playing "Dreams of Eschaton" on TV in 2004, as well as all upcoming tour dates, below...

CYMBALS also have a new single on the way, titled "What Eternity," that will be out via Tough Love Records soon, so look out for that. If you haven't checked them out at all, it's on the dancier side of Britpop and is not too far off from what Outfit, Hot Chip and Breton are doing. Check out streams and videos below...

Brooklyn songwriter Jack Greenleaf fills almost every song in his Sharpless project with staggering amounts of layers, all focused on creating a massive atmosphere for his vocals and guitar work to live within. The music is maximalist, especially when compared to other artists in the collective Jack is part of called The Epoch (also including Told Slant, Small Wonder, Eskimeaux, Bellows and more). Like with most projects associated with The Epoch, those artists all contribute to the newest Sharpless album, The One I Wanted To Be, which dropped this past May. The album runs the shimmering cheeriness of J-Pop and K-Pop through the lens of modern DIY rock and comes out with a full-length party that pulls the all-night-chiptune-bender sound of bands like Crying and Anamanaguchi into a more personal shell. You can stream the album in full below.
Sharpless have two CMJ shows scheduled at the moment. First they play The Needle Drop/We All Want Someone To Shout For/We Listen For You's unofficial CMJ kickoff party at Pianos on October 20 with Cakes Da Killa, Uncommon Nasa, White Reaper, Oscar and Machine Girl, which is free. Then they play the massive Miscreant Records & Father/Daughter Records-presented Concious Coupling party on October 24 at Silent Barn which goes all day (2 PM - 2 AM) with Comfy, Bad Cello, Running In The Fog, Adult Mom, Bethlehem Steel, Flagland, Attic Abasement, Mitski, Rivegazer, Girlpool, Amanda X, Jawbreaker Reunion, Bent Shapes, Nicholas Nicholas, Moon Bounce, Vagabon, Leapling and fellow Epoch member Small Wonder. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

Bo Ningen @ Studio at Webster Hall (more by Chris La Putt)
Bo Ningen and Savages are old pals, with Jehnny Beth singing on "Nichijyou" from Bo's second album and then again on "CC" on this year's III. A video for that song, directed by Aephie Huimi Chen, has just been released. Whether it's the relentless pounding of the song, or the imagery of singer Taigen Kawabe wandering around in a cave, the countryside and a junkyard, it's pretty intense. Watch it below.
As mentioned, Bo Ningen will be in NYC for CMJ next week where they're playing five shows as of now, including the BrooklynVegan free day party on Saturday (10/25) at Baby's All Right. The rest of the day show lineup will be revealed soon, and we'll also be at Baby's that night for our official CMJ showcase with The Jazz June, Pity Sex and more (tickets). Our Friday day party, with Protomartyr and more TBA, is at Baby's too. Here's all of Bo Ningen's CMJ shows:

Xylouris White is the duo of Dirty Three's Jim White and Cretan folk musician George Xylouris. Their debut album, Goats, is out today (10/14) via Other Music. The mix between Xylouris' traditional lute style and White's avant leanings is pretty interesting. You can stream opening cut "Pulling the Bricks" (and a Rdio stream of the whole LP) below. The Union Pool show is part of Xylouris White's US tour (Bon Ningen also opens in Providence, RI) and all dates are listed below.
You know Basher, and Dancer...
