Black Lips at House of Vans in July (more by Chris La Putt)
Black Lips

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

The Black Lips, King Khan & BBQ Show, Habibi @ Irving Plaza
This two-night NYC stand (tonight at at Irving Plaza, Wednesday at MHOW) sounds like trouble -- in a good way. A double-dose of party-friendly garage and soul, get in it.

Eternal Summers, Darlings, Boytoy @ Knitting Factory
Last time Eternal Summers were through, they played a LOT of new songs from their next album which is already in the can. Expect new ones tonight too. Support is good tonight, with Darlings' poppy indie rock, and Boytoy's hair-in-the-face shoegaze.

The Raveonettes, Coves @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Danish duo The Raveonettes released their best album in half a decade -- the kinda funky, surf-inspired Pe'ahi -- this summer and this is their first of two MHOW shows. Opening duo Coves make a similar brand of fuzzy pop, worth getting their early for.

The Big Sleep, Lymbyc Systym, Nicholas Nicholas @ Baby's All Right
Eleven years and going, NYC indie vets The Big Sleep remain a live force. The band have a new album due sometime soon and you can get a preview tonight -- and this show is with another long-running Brooklyn band, Lymbyc Systym.

QUAD, Winstons @ Baby's All Right
This is the first of QUAD's late-night residency at Baby's and the shows start at midnight and are free. QUAD spun off of Spires and have a similar '60s-meets-Madchester vibe.

Spoon, Dev Hynes, Best Coast & more @ Sonos Studios
The wireless speaker makers are bringing their curated lounge to NYC with some serious bands/musicians performing free sets, as well as talks and exhibitions. RSVPs, unsurprisingly with today's lineup, are full for the music portion.

Heaven, Dead Leaf Echo, The Stargazer Lilies @ Union Pool
It's a night of dark-tinged ethereal rock and all three bands do it well. Wear black.

Rise Against, Touche Amore, Radkey @ Wellmont Theatre
The band we're most excited about on this bill is Touche Amore, who make ambitious, serious, and sincere post-hardcore and are never short of fantastic at their shows.

Delta Spirit @ Mercury Lounge
The folk rockin' Delta Spirit put out a new album, Into The Wide, earlier this month and tonight they begin a three-night NYC run in support of it. All three are sold out.

RVIVR, Aye Nako, Shellshag, Slingshot Dakota @ Saint Vitus
RVIVR's fight against sexism/homophobia/etc is as radical as their pop punk is catchy. Tonight they team with three bands who are all a bit different but will fit with them well: the also-political Aye Nako, long-running DIY duo Shellshag, and Pennsylvania indie pop band Slingshot Dakota.

The Prettiots, Fiona Silver, Sleepy Kitty, Alice Limoges @ Pianos
Sleepy Kitty count former Harvey Danger drummer Evan Sult as a member, but they're not too similar to that band, instead sounding more like a grungier Best Coast.

Banks, Movement @ Terminal 5
Two members of the indie/R&B crossover team up at Terminal 5 tonight, with the very quickly rising Banks headlining this sold out show.

EULA, Short Nerve (feat. Greg Saunier [of Deerhoof], Ofir Ganon & special guest), Adam Schatz, Andra, Nose Fixer, DJ Jackie Yo, plus words from Speedy Ortiz's Sadie Dupuis, Hilly Eye's Amy Klein & more @ Glasslands
This big show with various art forms, collaborations and more goes down with music from noise rockers EULA, Short Nerve (a collaboration with a Deerhoof member and a special guest promised), Brooklyn everywhere-man Adam Schatz and more, plus Speedy Ortiz's Sadie Dupuis and Hilly Eye's Amy Klein will be speaking, and there's also "movement" and "photo works" at the show. More info here.

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

Eternal Summers at MHOW in 2013 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Eternal Summers

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

Avey Tare's Slasher Flicks, Dustin Wong @ Bowery Ballroom
Animal Collective members are taking some time off from their main band this year. Panda Bear has a new solo album on the way and Avey Tare is currently joined by ex-Dirty Projector Angel Deradoorian and ex-Ponytail member Jeremy Hyman in his new band Avey Tare's Slasher Flicks. Their tour with another former Ponytail member, Dustin Wong, hits Bowery Ballroom for a sold-out show tonight.

Eternal Summers, Sapphire Mansions, Beverly @ Cake Shop
Eternal Summers deliver more of their promising indie pop on their new Doug Gillard-produced album, The Drop Beneath. They came to town over the weekend for a Brooklyn Night Bazaar show, and now they're hanging around for something much smaller at Cake Shop. Also of note is that this will be the second full-band show for Beverly, who up to this point had just been the duo of Drew Citron and Frankie Rose (Frankie's no longer in the line-up). The C-86-inspired, organ-driven Sapphire Mansions are worth catching too.

Man Forever, So Percussion, Tigue @ Le Poisson Rouge
There will be some good percussionists of the indie/contemporary classical world at LPR tonight with Oneida drummer John Colpitts' (aka Kid Millions) Man Forever project, modern percussion ensemble (and Dan Deacon collaborators) So Percussion, and percussive trio Tigue (featuring members of Jherek Bischoff collaborators Contemporaneous Ensemble and Damon Albarn collaborators Ensemble Signal).

Chicago Underground Duo, Ryan Sawyer/Adam Schatz duo @ Baby's All Right
It's a night of experimental duos at Baby's All Right with the Northern Spy-signed Chicago Underground Duo (aka Rob Mazurek and Marc Ribot collaborator Chad Taylor), and a local duo set from Thurston Moore collaborator Ryan Sawyer and the prolific Adam Schatz (Landlady, Man Man, etc).

Elliott Sharp, Steve Buscemi @ Issue Project Room
As part of the William S Burroughs Centenary Celebration, Elliott Sharp and Steve Buscemi will put on a collaborative performance, creating "a collage of sound and words integrating texts by William S. Burroughs with Elliott Sharp's vast soundworlds."

Local H, Crook and Pony @ Mercury Lounge
'90s alt-rockers Local H still continue to tour, and tonight they're back in NYC to take over Mercury Lounge.

Holly Golightly, Party Lights @ Mercury Lounge
Once a member of Billy Childish's band Thee Headcoatees, Holly Golightly has been solo for nearly 20 years. She just released her new album All Her Fault, which is another fine slice of raw rockabilly garage. Tonight's her second of two NYC shows on this tour.

Taking Back Sunday, The Used, Tonight Alive, Sleepwave @ Best Buy Theater
Taking Back Sunday have been back with the lineup who made Tell All Your Friends for a few years now, and just released their second album since reuniting (and third overall by this lineup). The new stuff may lack the fire that made TAYF so great, but at least tonight's another chance to see the old favorites by the lineup who recorded them. This is their last of three sold out shows at Best Buy Theater on this tour.

Ronald Reagan, Greg Fox, Star Rover, Larkin Grimm, Benjamin Lazar Davis @ Manhattan Inn
Star Rover continue their residency at Manhattan Inn with some excellent experimental music coming from Greg Fox (Guardian Alien, ex-Liturgy, etc) and Swans/Martin Bisi associate Larkin Grimm. Lineup also includes Benjamin Lazar Davis of Cuddle Magic and "Boston's Premier 80's Pop Saxophone Duo," Ronald Reagan.

Night Train w/ Wyatt Cenac @ Littlefield
Wyatt Cenac's weekly Night Train comedy show continues tonight with comedic guests Big Jay Oakerson, Dan Soder, Matt Koff, musical guest KING'S, and more.

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

Luke Temple

While he's spent the last few years concentrating on Here We Go Magic, Luke Temple recently returned to solo mode with Good Mood Fool which was released a couple weeks ago via Secretly Canadian. On it, he bathes in warm funk and gentle reggae, giving things an enjoyably mellow vibe. You can check out the video for "Florida" and a couple other tracks below, and the whole record can be heard via Spotify.

Temple is currently finishing up a short East Coast tour with his band that includes Eliot Krimsky (Glass Ghost, Here We Go Magic), Mike Johnson (Dirty Projectors) and Brian Betancourt (Hospitality). He'll then head to Europe but on his return he's doing a December residency at Union Pool, playing the first three Tuesdays of the month. He's gathered some pretty impressive talent to open on the nights:

DECEMBER 3 (tickets)
ELLIOT KRIMSKY
MEMS (5) - (Ofir Ganon and Greg Sarnier of Deerhoof)
CHRIS BEAR (of Grizzly Bear)
LUKE TEMPLE

DECEMBER 10 (tickets)
DANIEL CARTER//AUSTIN VAUGHN
SAM OWENS (of Celestial Shore)
STEVE MARION (of Delicate Steve)
LUKE TEMPLE

DECEMBER 17 (tickets)
ADAM SCHATZ (of Man Man, Landlady, etc)
JEREMY GUSTIN AND INDIGO STREET (of Delicate Steve)
RYAN SEATON (of Callers)
LUKE TEMPLE

As a unifying theme, all of the sets during the residency will be improvised. No word on advance tickets just yet. Ticket links above. All tour dates are listed, along with videos and streams, below.

Cat Power / Sky Ferreira at Elliott Smith tribute (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Cat Power
Sky Ferreira

As you may have heard, on the tenth anniversary of Elliott Smith's death (10/21), a tribute show went down at Glasslands in Brooklyn with a number of musicians, including Cat Power, Zachary Cole Smith (DIIV), Sky Ferreira, Yoni Wolf (Why?), The Low Anthem, Luke Temple, Marissa Nadler, Aaron Pfenning, Sadie Dupuis (Speedy Ortiz), and more. We already posted pictures, the setlist, and a fan video from the show, and now there's professional video of the show, courtesy of The Bomber Jacket (one of the show presenters). They're planning on releasing the audio from the show as well ("hopefully by Christmas"), and all proceeds from that release will benefit the Elliott Smith Memorial Fund.

Meanwhile you can watch those videos below...

Cat Power / Cole & Sky
Elliot Smith Tribute
Elliot Smith Tribute

[Sadie] Dupuis delivered the night's heaviest alt-rock blast, leading a Nirvana-like performance of "Abused" by dialing up the track's soft-loud-soft dynamics. [Marissa] Nadler offered a mesmerizing lullaby with the gentle strums of "Pitseleh." [Yoni] Wolf played three tracks solo on piano, including "Angeles" and "Say Yes," adding his own spin lyrically and musically, something a "chord guy" like Smith would appreciate, Wolf joked.

...

Cat Power soon walked onstage and raised a glass from behind the piano -- "cheers to Elliott," she said. She played a solo version of her own tune, the haunting "Names," from 2003's You Are Free, before her band joined for a jazz/R&B-flecked "Between the Bars," which hit with extra punch due to Marshall's own history of alcohol abuse and mental illness.

She handed out knit caps, like those Smith so often wore (Marshall sported a yellow-gold beanie over her bleached blonde hair all night), and closed with From a Basement on the Hill's "Pretty (Ugly Before)." Ferreira joined Marshall onstage, and the two traded verses and invited the crowd to join -- "Fucking sing it if you know it!" shouted Marshall -- on the repeated outro: "I was so ugly before didn't know what to do." The jam-packed audience inside the DIY venue all sang in hushed tones together, in unison. [Rolling Stone]

On the tenth anniversary of Elliott Smith's death (10/21), a number of musicians gathered at Brooklyn venue Glasslands for a tribute show. The night's cast included Cat Power, Zachary Cole Smith (DIIV), Sky Ferreira, Yoni Wolf (Why?), The Low Anthem, Luke Temple, Marissa Nadler, Aaron Pfenning, Sadie Dupuis (Speedy Ortiz), Adam Schatz, The Perennials and Tereu Tereu. Pictures of the show, a partial setlist, and a video of Sky Ferreira joining Cat Power for "Pretty (Ugly Before)" are in this post.

For Cat Power, this show was ahead of her upcoming solo tour which brings her back to NYC for two shows on November 14 at Brooklyn Masonic Temple (early and late). The early show is sold out but tickets for the late show are still available.

Sadie Dupuis played this just after her band Speedy Ortiz wrapped up a number of CMJ shows, including our Friday party. Speedy Ortiz returns to NYC tonight (10/23) at The Flat for a Mishka show with J Mascis (of Dinosaur Jr). It's an afterparty for the debut of Mishka's new Dinosaur Jr line, which happens at their store (and J will be there doing an in-store signing).

More pictures, the partial setlist and video below...

Fiona Apple at Terminal 5 in 2012 (more by Caroline Harrison)
Fiona Apple

Browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows. Here are some highlights...

Fiona Apple, Blake Mills @ Beacon Theatre
Fiona Apple and Blake Mills are doing two nights of "Anything We Want" at Beacon Theatre this week. What exactly does that mean? Back in July they said, "We know it'll be something special, and we aren't being coy here -- it's just that we have about 26% of an idea of what the fuck we will be playing for you" and that "the uncertainty excites us." They've probably figured out more of the set by now.

Elliott Smith tribute w/ Cat Power, Zachary Cole Smith (DIIV), Sky Ferreira, Yoni Wolf (of Why?), The Low Anthem, Luke Temple, Marissa Nadler, Aaron Pfenning, Sadie Dupuis (Speedy Ortiz), Adam Schatz, The Perennials, Tereu Tereu @ Glasslands
This stacked lineup for a tribute to the late, great songwritier Elliot Smith includes Cat Power, Cole of DIIV, Sadie of Speedy Ortiz, Marissa Nadler, Sky Ferreira, and many more.

Foxygen, Ben Chatrer, Jungle Green @ Bowery Ballroom
Foxygen's Jonathan Rado was just in NYC playing a bunch of CMJ shows, and now the whole band is here for a 2-night stand of their '60s-style baroque/psych pop and Jim Morrison-style stage antics.

Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin, A Great Big Pile Of Leaves, Great Caesar @ Webster Hall
A Great Big Pile of Leaves released one of the more fun, somewhat mathy, somewhat emo, rock albums of the summer with You're Always On My Mind, out now on Topshelf. Their sound should go great with the sunny vibes of the equally long-named Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin.

Kid Congo Powers & The Pink Monkey Birds @ Mercury Lounge
Legendary guitarist/singer Kid Congo (The Gun Club, The Cramps, The Bad Seeds) and his garage rock band The Pink Monkeybirds are on the road, and after having played Secret Project Robot in Brooklyn last night, they hang around NYC for tonight's show at Mercury Lounge.

Fletcher C. Johnson, JP5, Pity Party, The Goddamn Rattlesnake @ Death By Audio
It's a night of different lo-fi styles at Death by Audio, with guitar pop songwriter Fletcher C. Johnson (who recently opened for Parquet Courts and Guards), ex-The Measure [sa] pop punks Pity Party, bluegrass collective Goddamn Rattlesnake, and rock n' rollers JP5.

Man Man, Xenia Rubinos @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Weirdo rockers Man Man are back with their new On Oni Pond LP, and this week their tour in support of it hits NYC for two shows with arty local songwriter Xenia Rubinos.

The Stargazer Lilies, Dead Leaf Echo, The Veldt, Acres @ Paper Box
Melt away at this record release show for NYC dream pop band The Stargazer Lilies that also features fellow effects pedal lovers Dead Leaf Echo and The Veldt.

'Two Boys' (Nico Muhly) @ Metropolitan Opera
As described by the Met, Nico Muhly's acclaimed new opera explores "identity and desire in the shadowy world of the Internet as a detective investigates the stabbing of one teenage boy by another -- and discovers a tangled web of online intrigue." Tickets are still available.

Night Train w/ Wyatt Cenac @ Littlefield
Wyatt Cenac does his weekly Night Train comedy show at Littlefield with guests Found Footage Festival, Marcus Monroe, Carla Rhodes, Ted Travelstead, Jena Friedman, and more.

Elliott Smith

The tribute show happens at Glasslands and includes some pretty great musicians like Cat Power, DIIV's Zachary Cole Smith with Sky Ferreira, Yoni Wolf (of Why?), The Low Anthem, Luke Temple, Marissa Nadler, Aaron Pfenning (of Rewards, ex-Chairlift), Sadie Dupuis (of Speedy Ortiz), Adam Schatz, The Perennials and Tereu Tereu.

Forgetters at Knitting Factory in 2010 (more by Andrew St. Clair)
Forgetters

As mentioned, Brooklyn's Brain Cave Festival is returning this year and it begins TONIGHT (4/11), continuing through Sunday (4/14). Most shows happen at Europa, and there's also a free day show on Saturday at the Greenpointers.com Market. When we first posted the lineup, there was a "Surprise Special Guest TBA" listed for Saturday's show, and we've since learned that it's Forgetters, the currently project of Jawbreaker/Jets to Brazil frontman Blake Schwarzenbach, who released their self titled album in late 2012.

The Forgetters show is with Monogold, Clouder, and Quiet Loudly. Other bands playing other days of the festival include Peelander-Z, The Suzan, Eula, Cat Martino, Lemonade, and more. Tickets for individual nights and 4-day passes are still available. Updated lineup below.

Forgetters are also playing a Record Store Day (4/20) in-store at Generation Records with Swearin' (who have other local shows with Shellshag coming up), Doug Gillard (Guided by Voices, Nada Surf), and Livids (whose lineup includes New Bomb Turks singer Eric Davidson, and who just opened for The Hives). Blake Schwarzenbach will be DJing, along with Tom Scharpling and others.

Meanwhile, in other Brain Cave Festival related news, Lemonade have been added as an opener to the previously discussed John Talabot tour, including his NYC show on May 28 at Music Hall of Williamsburg with FIXED DJs JDH & Dave P. Tickets for that show are still available.

Meanwhile, catch Lemonade's True Panther labelmates Delorean in NYC TONIGHT (4/11) at 285 Kent. Tickets for tonight's show are still available.

All Lemonade dates are listed, along with the updated Brain Cave lineup, below...

Devendra Banhart at Governors Ball 2012 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Devendra Banhart

A bunch of artists, including Miho Hatori's New Optimism, Devendra Banhart, Oorutaichi, Sahba Sizdahkhani, Dan Friel, and Mrs. Adam Schatz are getting together to play a Hurricane Sandy Relief benefit show in Brooklyn TONIGHT (11/1) at Public Assembly in the front room. In addition to those performances, there will also by DJ sets by Dapwell of Das Racist and Ghostdad of Win Win. There's a $5-$20 donation at the door for entry and all proceeds go to Renegade Sandy Relief, "a direct action relief initiative for the hardest hit victims of Hurricane Sandy," founded by iO Tillett Wright, Holly Miranda, and Lane Sanders (owner of The Drink).

Head over after our free screening of the Comedy at Knitting Factory.

Devendra Banhart was supposed to open for Swans at Music Hall of Williamsburg last month, but that show was cancelled due to Hurricane Sandy and the venue is working to reschedule it but no new date has been announced yet.

The flyer for tonight's show is below...

Elsewhere in Brooklyn, Titus Andronicus are playing a record release show at Shea Stadium (sold out) which should be a sweaty good time.

You can do this at Gotham Comedy Club where they've brought in professional riff-man Frank Conniff (aka "TV's Frank" from MST3K), Sandra Bernhard, W. Kamau Bell and more.

CMJ is officially over, but if you've still got any energy left, there are tons of good shows today. A handful of bigger bands are making their way through town like Divine Fits (who play with Cold Cave), The Darkness, Justice and Chromeo (DJ), WHY?, Psychedelic Furs and Lemonheads feat. Juliana Hatfield, The Sea and Cake, and A-Trak (who plays with Flosstradamus like he did in Brooklyn last night).

Plus, a bunch of the artists who were here for CMJ are sticking around. Most notably, there's the Wild Nothing, Merchandise, and Mac DeMarco show, but other good ones include Austin's Ringo Deathstarr, local faves Parquet Courts, Juan Wauters (of The Beets), and Son of Salami at Shea Stadium, and if you're up early, the free day party at 285 Kent with Hilly Eye, Blanche Blanche Blanche, Ava Luna, and more should be a great time.

We threw a few events during CMJ, including day parties at Public Assembly on Friday and Saturday. One of the highlights of those parties was London post-punk newcomers Savages tearing up the front room on Friday, followed by an unrelenting set by Toronto punks METZ. If you missed it, you can check out videos of both bands from that party below, via (((unartig))).
