Created by Phil Matarese and Mike Luciano and produced by Duplass Brothers Television, Animals. focuses on the downtrodden creatures native to Earth's least-habitable environment: New York City. Whether it's lovelorn rats, gender-questioning pigeons or aging bedbugs in the midst of a midlife crisis, the awkward small talk, moral ambiguity and existential woes of non-human urbanites prove startlingly similar to our own.
Quoted above is the new description for new animated HBO series Animals which premieres on February 5. As Pitchfork points out, among the voice actors are musicians Kurt Vile, A$AP Rocky and A$AP Ferg.

The rest of the cast isn't too shabby either. It includes Eric Andre, Katie Aselton, Jessica Chastain, Rob Corddry, Jay Duplass, Mark Duplass, Ellie Kemper, Nick Kroll, Lauren Lapkus, Melanie Lynsky, Marc Maron, Kumail Nanjiani, Horatio Sanz, Adam Scott, Molly Shannon, Wanda Sykes, Cobie Smulders, Matt Walsh, Zach Woods and Steve Zissis.

A$AP Rocky, A$AP Ferg and Kurt Vile all have upcoming shows too.

Watch a teaser for Animals. below...

What may end up being a very major NYC music festival, Governors Ball, begins today with sets from Beach House, Feist, Dinosaur Jr., Polica and more. It's looking like rain all day, but the fest is 100% rain or shine so bring a poncho. If you're going today, how are you getting there?

Governors Ball also has a number of official afterparties. There's some great ones tonight, including Japandroids/Crocodiles, Dinosaur Jr., and Polica.

Even without Governors Ball and its afterparties, there are lots of show options. Kyp Malone's solo project, Rain Machine (very appropriate today), plays The Bowery Electric tonight with Christy & Emily, Katie Eastburn, and David First. Advance tickets are still available.

After saying hi to David Letterman and going crate-digging, Queens of the Stone Age will play a sold-out Brooklyn Masonic Temple. Did you manage to snag tickets?

It may be cold and rainy, but the glowing tubes in the amps at Saint Vitus tonight will be warm. New Relapse signees Windhand team with Kings Destroy (their record release party), Clamfight and Belus as part of an InvisibleOranges event and a larger Windhand tour. Tickets are still available.

If you're looking for something to do after work, there's a Memphis punk double-threat happening at the the Seaport Music Festival with legends The Oblivians and upstarts Ex Cult. The rain moved the event down the street to the Beekman Beer Garden (under their giant tented area). Still free but Beekman is 18+. Sorry, minors!

Fans of '90s style indie rock? Grand Victory in Williamsburg has a pretty killer local line-up of Dead Stars, Radical Dads and Heaven.

Looking to catch potential Next Big Things? LODRO, Spires, Life Size Maps, The Vandelles and Young Boys. are playing at 247 N. 10th St (at Frost). That's a pretty good line-up.

While Of Monsters and Men cause the Governors Ball masses to sway in the rain, their tourmates, Montreal's talented Half Moon Run, will be performing at Glasslands.

Broken Social Scene are celebrating the 10th anniversary of their landmark LP, You Forgot it in People, and snuck down to NYC to play Late Night with Jimmy Fallon with their sometimes vocalist Feist (who plays Governors Ball) in tow. They did "Almost Crimes" on the show and then did "7/4 Shoreline" as a web exclusive. Watch them both below.

Meanwhile, Park & Recreation costars Adam Scott and Amy Pohler collaborated on "The Greatest Event in Television History": a shot-for-shot recreation of the opening credits of '80s mystery-adventure series, Hart to Hart. And you can watch that (and a making-of doc) below too.

Jay Z Beyonce Obama

We already posted lots of posts today. Here's some more, and some reminders too...

Jay-Z & Beyonce raised a cool $4M for Barack Obama at their benefit last night ("Beyonce could not be a better role model for my girls," Obama said,). Go on and brush your shoulders off, Jigga.

If you bought a ticket to that fundraiser, may we interest you in a live entertainment company?

Meanwhile, the President was on The Late Show with David Letterman last night, chatting about the Mitt Romney "47%" video and other things. Watch it below.

In other money news, Amanda Palmer is now going to pay those previously-volunteer musicians and her new LP debuted at #10 on Billboard.

If you were wondering the #1 album is, it's Dave Matthews Band's Away from the World which beat out Bob Dylan. The xx's Coexist came in at #5, not too bad!

Check out what David Byrne & St. Vincent played last night in Chicago.

Look at pictures from our Jon Spencer Blues Explosion record release party that was last night.

Hope to see you at our Rafiq Batia record release party that Anti-Pop Consortium is also playing.

Check out an excellent profile piece on the legendary Neil Young that appeared in the NY Times Magazine.

Sinead O'Connor wrote to Russian president Vladmir Putin, demanding Pussy Riot's release. Is that helping or hurting?
