You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Thee Oh Sees, Zs, Purling Hiss @ Warsaw
Coming off their strongest album in a while, Mutilator Defeated at Last, Thee Oh Sees bring their new(ish) two drummer lineup to NYC for the final of three shows with Zs.
Laetitia Sadier (of Stereolab), Deradoorian, Operator @ Baby's All Right
Former Stereolab singer Laetitia Sadier hasn't strayed to far from her old band's sound on her solo albums, like last year's Something Shines. Making this bill all the more enticing is Deradoorian, Angel Deradoorian's new project with her sister, Arlene.
Kathryn Calder (of The New Pornographers), Overlake @ Mercury Lounge
Kathryn Calder of New Pornographers released her third solo album back in April. While the self-titled record has a few pop moments like her other gig, it also has some very lovely, dreamlike and pastoral songs as well.
The Juan Maclean, Guerilla Toss @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Fresh off a European tour, the Juan Maclean (featuring a hot four-piece lineup, including some rad theremin use) play their second of two NYC shows tonight which also has new DFA signing Guerilla Toss.
Micachu & The Shapes, Highlife @ Alphaville
Micachu's new record, Good Sad Happy Bad, was born out of an unrehearsed jam session that was secretly taped by drummer Marc Pell, and that became the backbone of the album. We are very curious to hear what this all sounds like live.
Dengue Fever, Bombay Rickey, Nappy G @ Le Poisson Rouge
Los Angeles band Dengue Fever make an updated take on '60s/'70s jazzy Cambodian pop, as heard on this year's The Deepest Lake.
The Orb, Michna @ Bowery Ballroom
Dub chillout pioneers The Orb have been providing the soundtrack to some people's comedown for 25 years now. With a new album, Moonbuilding 2703 AD, under their belts, be ready for lift-off. This is their second of two shows.
Tomorrow's Tulips, Fletcher C. Johnson, Fern Mayo, Larry and The Babes @ Palisades
Costa Mesa, CA trio Tomorrows Tulips make lo-fi indiepop with a flower power bent, and have records out on the Burger Label (which is enough to get some people to this show).
John Hodgman @ The Bell House
John Hodgman, who seems to be on every decent comedy series on TV these days, is heading out on a tour called "Vacationland" this weekend. Before he leaves, he's playing this warm-up show in Brooklyn.
Hank Wood and the Hammerheads, Anasazi, L.O.T.I.O.N., Nandas, Mommy @ Saint Vitus
This show is a benefit for The Sam Vincent Foundation & Hamilton-Madison House and it's basically a who's who of NYC's underground punk scene. Headlining is the especially great Hank Wood and the Hammerheads, who toe the line between garage and hardcore.
Slingshot Dakota, Haybaby, Bethlehem Steel, Elizabeth Warren @ Shea Stadium
If you like poppy lo-fi indie with a kick, pretty much this whole bill will be up your alley.
Dead Heavens, Don Devore @ Union Pool
Post-hardcore legend Walter Schreifels dives into late '60s-style psych rock with his new-ish band Dead Heavens. Tonight they play with another constantly-busy musician, Don Devore (of Ink & Dagger, Sick Feeling, Amazing Baby and more).
Chris Brokaw, Animal Hospital, Final Boss, Horoscope @ Trans-Pecos
Indie veteran Chris Brokaw has spent time in Codeine, Come and other bands, and tonight he returns to solo mode.
Bushwig Fest @ Onderdonk House
Kicking off this weekend's Bushwig fest, tonight is the Bushwig Ball where they'll crown Mz. Bushwig. Dress your best.

As always, there's a ton of good electronic music to experience live in NYC, including two great shows tonight (2/26). We don't get a chance to post about all of it, so here's a roundup of some good upcoming shows that we haven't talked about yet.
One of tonight's shows is Output's weekly INPUT party, headlined in the man room by Detroit house vet MK. Joining him are Detroit techno originator Kevin Saunderson and Justin Miller. In the venue's Panther Room it's LA-via-DC duo Nadastrom (aka Dave Nada and Matt Nordstrom), who just released their self-titled debut album on Friends of Friends. Listen to "House Shoes" (ft. Nina K) from that album below. Tickets are available.
Also tonight at Verboten it's a stacked lineup with Sweater Beats (who opened for Chance the Rapper in NYC two nights ago), Drake remixer Kastle, and the NYC debut of LA duo Vindata. Tickets are available.
Moving on from tonight, Paris/Berlin producer Rone returned earlier this month with the followup to 2012's Tohu Bohu. It's called Creatures and it's out now on InFiné. You an watch the animated video for its song "Sing Song" below.
Rone has dates coming up, including a US release party for the album on May 29 at Good Room in NYC with solid local support from FaltyDL. Tickets for that show are on sale now. All dates at his website.
Also at Good Room soon is a FIXED party on March 20 with Aeroplane and Fort Romeau. Tickets are on sale. Fort Romeau is releasing a new album called Insides on March 31 via Ghostly, and he just put out the video for one of its songs, "Not A Word," a collaboration with New Jackson. Watch below.
There's another FIXED party at Good Room on March 14 with Tensnake. Tickets are on sale.
Long-running LA producer Eskmo, who's previously released music on Ninja Tune, Warp and Planet Mu, returned this week with a new album called SOL on R&S imprint Apollo. He plays a release party for the album in NYC on April 11 at Baby's All Right (tickets). Stream the album below, via Dazed.
There's a good electronic show much sooner at Baby's on Friday (2/27) with Brooklyn producer Obey City. It's a release party for his just-released Merlot Sounds EP on LuckyMe, which you can watch a video from below. The party is free with RSVP, and Photay opens.
Back to Output: DFA duo Holy Ghost! DJ the venue on March 5 with A/JUS/TED, and Le Youth in the Panther Room (tickets).
Future Brown (aka Fatima Al Qadiri, Asma Maroof and Daniel Pineda of Nguzunguzu and Lit City Trax's J-Cush) released their self-titled debut album on Warp this week, and hit Output on May 27 (tickets).
Back to Verboten: On March 7 they've got George Fitzgerald and Leon Vynehall (who played NYC together over the summer), along with Kenny Larkin, Lee Jones and SIK NYC (tickets). George FitzGerald is also releasing a new album, Fading Love, on April 28 via Double Six/Domino. Stream the new single "Full Circle" (ft. Boxed In) below.

Atoms for Peace @ Roseland Ballroom, 2010 (more by Bao Nguyen)
Superchunk @ A.V. Fest 2013 (more by Jeff Ryan)
Browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows. Here are some highlights...
"We Have An Anchor" @ BAM
Jem Cohen presents his new work as part of BAM's Next Wave Festival, a cinematic tribute to Nova Scotia with live music by a band that reads like an ATP line-up: Guy Picciotto (Fugazi), Jim White (Dirty Three), Efrim Manuel Menuck and Sophie Trudeau (Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Thee Silver Mt. Zion), and more. Tonight's the second of three performances.
Atoms for Peace @ Barclays Center
Though Thom Yorke might love dancing on stage no matter what band he's in, Atoms for Peace gives him a great excuse to do so. The first album as a full band, this year's AMOK, is possibly Thom's most beat-oriented album yet. Expect to hear much of that, much of Thom's solo record, The Eraser, and some other surprises from throughout his career thrown in as well.
Superchunk, Spider Bags @ Bowery Ballroom
One of America's quintessential indie rock bands remain at the top of their game: the new I Hate Music is packed with hooks and, live, Mac can still land a flying leap off the drum riser. The first of two sold-out out shows at Bowery.
US Girls, Spacin', Onakabazien, DJs Pete Swanson & Slim Twig @ Death By Audio
Toronto experimental pop artist U.S. Girls (aka Meg Remy) is back in Brooklyn tonight to play a release show for her new EP, Free Advice Column. Also on the bill is hip hop producer Onakabazien (who collaborated with her on the new EP) and Philly garage rockers Spacin' (who, like Purling Hiss, have ties to Birds of Maya).
Aeroplane, Light Year, JDH & Dave P @ Highline Ballroom
Better known for his killer remixes -- like the one for Friendly Fires' "Paris" featuring Au Revoir Simone -- then his originals, Aeorplane (aka Belgium's Vito de Luca) is a master DJ who knows how to set a dancefloor soaring. Check out a stream of his "All Night Long" mix below
The Legendary Pink Dots, Orbit Service @ Knitting Factory
Edward Ka-Spel and Phil Knight have been making gothy, baroque psychedelia for over 30 years and remain shockingly prolific: The Gethsemane Option, is their... we actually lost count how many records they've released. Legendary indeed.
Har Mar Superstar, Reputante, Lizzo @ Knitting Factory
Entertaining goofball Har Mar Superstar can turn any place into a sweaty party, given his ability to mimic '80s R&B and funk... he can breakdance too. Fellow Minneapolis native Lizzo opens.
The Sadies @ Mercury Lounge
These long-running and underappreciated twangy Canadians just released Internal Sounds, their 16th album in 15 years.
Le1f, Antwon, Lakutis @ Santos Party House
These three genre-defying rappers have been on tour together and tonight they hit Santos Party House.
Heaven's Gate, LODRO, Blanche Blanche Blanche, Extra Feeler @ Silent Barn
Having formed two years ago from the ashes of the short-lived (and missed) Sweet Bulbs, Heaven's Gate took their old band's droning guitar roar into new territory. Their debut, Transmuting, hit this week and is a powerhouse rock record. Tonight's the record release party, with a pretty great set of openers.
Portugal. The Man, Crystal Fighters @ Terminal 5
These proggy alt-rockers returned with a Danger Mouse-produced album earlier this year, and if you can picture what Portugal. The Man and Danger Mouse would sound like together in a studio... well that's kinda what this sounded like. Check out the weirdo-funky sounds at Terminal 5 tonight.
The Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival @ The Bell House
Night Two of the EMCF features two shows at The Bell House: early its "Startalk: Live" with hosts Neil deGrasse Tyson and Eugene Mirman welcoming a bunch of surely big name surprise guests (sold out); the late show is "Invite Them Up!" with Bobby Tisdale, Eugene Mirman, Michael Che, Mehran Khaghani, Michael Ian Black, and Todd Barry. You can still get tickets to that one.
The Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival @ Union Hall
Meanwhile at Union Hall, the Mirman Fest is happening too, and tonight's show title explains itself: "Comics Marc Maron Will Probably Resent in the Next Couple of Years," specifically Mike Lawrence, Adam Newman, Seaton Smith, Jim Tews, Kate Berlant, Ahmed Bharoocha.
Richard Thompson, Teddy Thompson @ Town Hall
Folk legend and guitar hero Richard Thompson has been touring pretty much constantly since the release of his new album, Electric, back in February. Tonight he keeps things all in the family - his talented son, Teddy, opens.
Tegan and Sara @ Starland Ballroom
Tegan and Sara have been touring behind their poppy new album Heartthrob this year, and after hitting the NYC-area a few times, tonight they're back for a NJ show at the newly-reopened Starland Ballroom.
The Suburbs, Shake the Baron @ Mercury Lounge
Secret show theorists back off! The Arcade Fire may be in town for SNL, but this is The Suburbs, the cult Minneapolis new wave band who just released the not-bad-at-all Si Sauvage, their first album in 27 years.
Chick Corea @ Blue Note
Jazz fusion pianist Chick Corea, known for collaborations with Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock, and others, continues his 6-night run at The Blue Note tonight.
John Zorn @ Miller Theatre
Avant-sax great John Zorn continues his Zorn at 60 concerts that have been going on all year.
toe, Birthmark @ Glasslands
Japanese post/math rockers toe have been around for over a decade, and this year they're getting a career-boost in North America, as they're re-releasing some material on Boston label Topshelf Records and touring here. Tonight's show is with Birthmark, the solo project of Nate Kinsella, who also has a long history in '00s math rock. Sold out.
Vulture Shit, Big Ups, I'm Sick, Ellis Dodi @ The Neverlands
Vulture Shit and Big Ups are two of Brooklyn's better young punk bands, and tonight they share a bill at The Neverlands (538 Johnson).
Forest Fire, Zachary Cale, Metal Mountains @ Union Pool
For those into psychedelia and folk, all three artists on this lineup do that sound well, and this one's not to miss.
Sidi Toure @ Highline Ballroom
Legendary Malian blues singer/guitarist has a new album out on Thrill Jockey, and he's currently back in North America for a tour. If you're unfamiliar, you can read more about him here.

Passion Pit at MSG earlier this month (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)
Camp Bisco is known for a long history of booking jam bands and dance music, but has branched out in recent years. This year's lineup has an especially interesting slew of non-jam. The festival goes down from July 11 to 13 at the Indian Lookout Country Club in Mariaville, NY and features Passion Pit, Animal Collective, Toro y Moi, El-P, Killer Mike, Baauer, Dan Deacon, Com Truise, Ryan Hemsworth, Flosstradamus, Bear Mountain, Free Energy, RL Grime, VHS or Beta, and others, including of course The Disco Biscuits, who run the festival.
3-Day general admission passes for Camp Bisco are on sale now. Full lineup below...
Vito & Stephen
Aeroplane is now a one-man operation, Vito having amicably parted company with his bandmate Stephen Fasano. Not that we should be alarmed. "There are worse things in life!" says Vito. "Stephen's gonna do music on his own, I'm gonna do music on my own. I'm the studio guy, he was more the DJ so when the music became more important, the more I was alone in the studio. The future of Aeroplane was this album and I wrote it and played every instrument." The two are still on good terms: "He's picking me up tomorrow at the airport. I'm probably going to produce the stuff he writes in the future and I'm not going to have a word to say about it!"The next edition of long-running dance (and some rock) party FIXED happens tonight (5/26) at Le Poisson Rouge with Belgium's Aeroplane (aka one-man operation Vito De Luca) and FIXED regulars JDH & Dave P. Aeroplane released a mixtape on soundcloud in April with remixes of Adele, Shit Robot, Alex Winston (who Star Slinger also just remixed) and others. Stream the mixtape below. Tickets for tonight's show are still on sale.
JDH & Dave P bring the other Belgian DJ, one who used to be the the other half of Aeroplane, The Magician (aka Stephen Fasano), to FIXED on July 9 at Good Units in the Hudson Hotel. Tickets are on sale. The Magician will also be performing at Camp Bisco during that trip, as will JDH & Dave P.
FIXED also has a party scheduled on Saturday (5/28) at Public Assembly with Parallels. Parallels (featuring ex-Crystal Castles drummer Cameron Findlay) plays the front room with Miho Hatori of Cibo Matto, who just announced a tour. People at Parties and JDH open the show, and Pendu Disco DJs play the back room with Butterclock and You.
The Aereplane mix is below...

Bassnectar closes out the final day
"Bassnectar, arms flailing and Cousin It hair flying in all directions, brought the loudest set of the weekend, inspiring two concertgoers to scale a 30-foot support pole inside the tent." [NYU News]Fresh off a recent appearance at Electric Zoo 2010, Bassnectar will return to NYC to play Terminal 5 on Nov 6th with Beats Antique (DJ set) and Emancipator. Tickets are on sale. The show is part of a larger US trek for the electronic artist that extends until the middle of December (and that was previously listed without the NYC show). All dates below.
In terms of new material, he says:
This week i finished the latest Bassnectar EP, 'Wildstyle' which is the most bonkers collection of music i've ever created. Each song was crafted with you in mind, and how your body and soul will be affected when the waves of this music are crashing through your cells. We will have more info soon with regards to release, but it will definitely become centerpiece of the fall soundtrack.In the meantime, and as promised, we have our fourth and final set of 2010 Electric Zoo pictures in this post. You can also check out PART 1, PART 2, and PART 3, before continuing with PART 4 below...

"Dutch this, Swedish that! Germany's answer to house, Boys Noize, put on one hell of a set. Almost every track he dropped was welcomed by a roaring cheer. Technically he was breathtaking and proved once again why he is the future of electronic music." [Dancing Astronaut]Here is Part Two of our continuing coverage of the 2010 Electric Zoo Festival that took place over Labor Day Weekend on Randall's Island in NYC. We had multiple photographers and reviewers on hand. Andrew's pictures of Saturday (day one) were posted HERE. His pictures of day two (Sunday), continue below...

Hercules and Love Affair perform great live disco, in a way very few bands are doing nowadays. Aeroplane continue to look promising (though I have still yet to see them this week!). James Zabiela has been getting tons of positive feedback lately. I fell in love with his Utilities double mix album several years ago and am excited to get to see him again in a setting that is not Pacha. Shinichi Osawa's opening set for Fatboy Slim in June was great - very hard, but not too in your face. The Fantastic Nobodies' performance art, aka crowd-feathering, during Modeselektor's set at Bowery Ballroom back in January was quite an experience. All in all, it should be a great night. Tickets are available here
