The annual CMJ Music Marathon happens from October 21 - 25 at venues all over NYC. We've heard about a few bands who are heading here during that time (Slowdive, The Wytches, The Ocean Blue, Tom Vek and Courtney Barnett to name four) but CMJ threw an announcement party tonight (8/27) at Bowery Electric and the line-up is now out. In addition to those artists, The Kills, Bombay Bicycle Club, Protomartyr, Twin Peaks, White Fence, Shonen Knife OBN IIIs, Ultimate Painting, Yumi Zouma, and many more are amongst the 2014 CMJ performers. Badges are on sale now and the complete initial line-up is listed below...

LVL UP

Brooklyn indie rockers LVL UP are releasing their new album, Hoodwink'd, on September 23 via the label owned by LVL UP members Dave Benton and Mike Caridi, Double Double Whammy (also home to Frankie Cosmos and others), as well as Exploding In Sound (formerly home to Speedy Ortiz and others). If you miss the days of '90s indie rock, LVL UP have got you covered. The album's new single, "Soft Power," recalls Built to Spill, Weezer, Dinosaur Jr, and plenty other bands from that era. Check it out below.

The band will be touring in August with former Titus Andronicus member Liam Betson, who put out his new album, The Cover of Hunter, on DDW this week (7/22). That tour culminates in NYC on 8/30 at Shea Stadium with another former Titus member, Andrew Cedermark, and another DDW signee, Mitski.

All dates are listed, with the new LVL UP song and a stream of Liam's album, below...

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

Courtney Barnett, Kins @ Mercury Lounge
One of CMJ's breakouts last year, Australian charmer Courtney Barnett has now signed with Mom + Pop who will release her The Double EP: A Sea Of Split Peas in the US. Her two NYC shows -- this is the first -- are both sold out. Opening are fellow Aussies, Kins.

Widowspeak, Jessica Pratt, Porches @ Brooklyn Night Bazaar
A rock-solid BKNB line-up tonight, with the dreamy sounds of Widowspeak, the bewitching folk of LA's Jessica Pratt, and one of NYC's best new bands, Porches.

Kanye West @ Mohegan Sun Arena
Kanye's Yeezus tour has been quite the spectacle, and it should impress even the biggest of the "hip hop sucks live" naysayers. He brought it to NYC for four shows in November, but if you missed it then or just need to see it again, he's in the surrounding area for a few dates this month, including tonight's Mohegan Sun Arena show.

Justin Timberlake @ MSG
Justin Timberlake does a lot of things, some of them great, some of them less great, but one of those things is that he makes some of the most forward-thinking mainstream pop around, and he'll fill MSG with that tonight. Rescheduled from this past Wednesday.

XXYYXX, Giraffage, Purple @ NYU E&L Auditorium
Orlando producer XXYYXX takes vocal samples of pop songs we're all pretty familiar with, but chops them up in a way that splits the line between future garage and something you can actually dance to. There's equally dancey support on this show too. Open to students and non-students.

Iron Chic, Chumped, Timeshares @ The Acheron
Iron Chic made a hell of a racket on last year's The Constant One, an album of shambolic Japandroids anthems meeting gravelly Hot Water Music punk rock. Get there early for poppy Brooklyn punks Chumped too.

Between the Buried and Me, Deafheaven, Intronaut, The Kindred @ The Paramount
If you don't mind making the trip to Long Island and seeing a bunch of proggy metal bands, this is another chance to catch Deafheaven's brilliant mix of shoegaze, post-rock and black metal in the NYC-area.

Into It. Over It., The World is a Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid to Die, A Great Big Pile of Leaves, LVL UP @ Bowery Ballroom
This is one of the more stacked emo tours in a while with the Owen-meets-Death Cab sounds of Into It. Over It., the multi-layered emo of TWIABP, and the mathy, danceable Minus the Bear-style rhythms of AGBPOL. Local fuzz rockers LVL UP open and they're worth catching too.

Yvette, Christines, Future Punx, Young Oprah Winfrey DJ set @ Glasslands
Rescheduled from the heart of the Polar Vortex: A exciting bill for those with post-punk proclivities: Yvette mine goth/industrial; Christines (new band from Andy of Woven Bones) skew shoegaze; and Future Punx will scratch your manic new wave itch.

Slothrust, Big Ups, Boy Toy @ Shea Stadium
Big Ups put out their debut record of caustic, noisy post-hardcore earlier this year, and if you like the sounds of anyone from Black Flag to Fugazi to Slint, you'll find something to dig here.

OM, Zomes @ MHOW
Last seen amongst the ruins of the Temple of Dendur, trippy groove gurus OM return in a more modern enviorment.

Dave Hill, Valley Lodge, Walter Schreifels, Jim Tews, Brad Steuernagel, Joey Pfeifer @ Union Hall
It's another edition of Dave Hill's variety show "Meet Me in the Bathroom and Tell Me All Your Secrets" that mixes rock and comedy. Guests include Walter Schreifels (Youth Of Today, Gorilla Biscuits, Quicksand).

Rhye, Ricky Eat Acid @ Webster Hall
Rhye don't take their Sade-style smooth pop on the road that often, so any chance to catch them is one worth taking. This show is sold out.

The Attic Ends, Field Mouse, Chamber Band @ Knitting Factory
This is a benefit for Oxfam America...we're partial to Field Mouse who have become quite a good live band over the last year.

PUP, Appomattox, Spirit Of Danger @ Cameo Gallery
While some bands try to push punk rock forward, PUP revel in its simplicity and anthemicism. So it might not be new stuff, but it's super fun.

Suuns, Azar Swan, Bennio Qwerty, The Flag @ Death By Audio
Montreal band Suuns manage to sound sinister without resorting to eyeliner or black nail polish, and their live show is intense. Also on the bill: the more overtly goth Azar Swan and aggressive power trio Bennio Qwerty.

Caged Animals, Leverage Models, Candide, TOMBOY @ Baby's All Right
A night of more apparent pop, with the big-hearted Caged Animals, the '80s-ish New Pop sounds of Leverage Models, Candide's dancey beats and new Brooklyn duo TOMBOY (and not the Boston punky band of the same name). Check out a new Caged Animals video below.

Nude Beach, Marvin Berry and The New Sound, Hector's Pets, Liquor Store @ Union Pool
Get rowdy with four punky bands, headlined by the no-bs heartland sounds of Nude Beach.

Andrew Cedermark, Stephen Steinbrink, Jen Goma @ Cake Shop
A former member of Titus Andronicus, Andrew Cedermark makes laid-back rock that fits right in on Underwater Peoples (former home of Real Estate).

Rivers of Nihil, So Hideous, Black Crown Initiate, Torrential Downpour @ Saint Vitus
Pennsylvania death metallers Rivers of Nihil meet up with NYC atmospheric metallers So Hideous for a good double bill tonight at Saint VItus.

H.R. (Bad Brains), Dubb Agents, Rebelmatic, Radio Daze @ The Studio at Webster Hall
He fronts one of the most influential DC hardcore bands, but HR leans towards his rasta roots as a solo artist.

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

Delorean at Bowery Ballroom in 2010
Delorean

Brendan Canning at Pop Montreal 2013 (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)
Brendan Canning

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

Neutral Milk Hotel, Elf Power @ BAM
After releasing one of the most classic indie albums of all time with In the Aeroplane Over the Sea, Neutral Milk Hotel pretty much disappeared with frontman Jeff Mangum choosing to remain mostly out of the public eye. A few years ago, Mangum began touring again, but it wasn't until late 2013 that Neutral Milk Hotel returned to the road. Their reunion tour finally comes to NYC this week and this is the second of five shows here.

Delorean, Mas Ysa @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Spanish synthpop band Delorean may not be as buzzy as they were back in 2010 (which feels like way more than four years ago), but they're still making shiny, catchy tunes and tonight's show is sold out. NYC indie pop guy Mas Ysa opens.

Brendan Canning (of Broken Social Scene), White Hinterland @ Mercury Lounge
While Broken Social Scene is on hiatus, both co-founders are focusing on their solo projects, and tonight Brendan Canning finally makes his way to NYC after having to postpone his last tour. White Hinterland makes solid indie pop and is about to release her first album since 2010, Baby, on April 1 via Dead Oceans. You can listen to its new single, "Ring the Bell," below.

The Detroit Cobras, Nude Beach, The Above @ The Bell House
Detroit Cobras have been doing garage rock covers for about two decades now, and they'll bring the fun back to Brooklyn tonight. If you're going, get there early for Nude Beach, whose punky take on Elvis Costello-style power pop is pretty great.

French Horn Rebellion, Seasick Mama, Heavenly Beat, Pizza Underground @ Brooklyn Night Bazaar
This week's BKNB line-up is a well-curated bunch of '80s-leaning dance acts from the wispy psuedo-Swedish Heavenly Beat, the Miami Vice-style cod reggae of Rush Midnight, and the big hook party jams of French Horn Rebellion. Sandwiched in there as well are Macaulay Culkin's novelty VU tribute band, The Pizza Underground. Free.

Woodsman, Herbcraft, Fire Talk @ Mercury Lounge
Mixing drony folk, motorik rhythms and the occasional chopped-up beat, Brooklyn's Woodsman are set to release their self-titled third album, on February 5. This is the kickoff to their tour with Herbcraft.

Reverend Horton Heat, Nekromantix, Deke Dickerson, The Creepshow, Reformed Whores @ Irving Plaza
In the world of surf-rock, the Rev is a lengend, bringing a crazed twang to his raucous instrumentals and psychobilly freakouts.

Prurient, Azar Swan, Clay Rendering @ Saint Vitus
Dominick Fernow is a man of many sounds (and projects) in the worlds of noise, power electronics, and industrial, and tonight he brings his Prurient project (just days after releasing a noisy new single) to the black walls of Saint Vitus. Also don't miss the goth pop of Azar Swan and the post-industrialism of Clay Rendering (who are on Dominick's Hospital Productions label).

Damien Jurado, Courtney Marie Andrews @ Bowery Ballroom
You can pretty much always depend on Damien Jurado to deliver excellent indie folk songs, and his newest album Brothers and Sisters of the Eternal Son (out this week on Secretly Canadian) lives up to that promise.

Trust
IMAGE

Trust, Heathered Pearls (DJ), FJTRSPA (DJ), Creatures (DJ) @ Glasslands
Toronto resident Robert Alfons is Trust, for all intents and purposes, who makes sinister minimal synth. With a new album, Joyland, out in March expect lots of new stuff at the late show. Sold out.

DMX, Rakim, Naughty by Nature, EPMD, Brand Nubian, Big Daddy Kane, Slick Rick, Biz Markie, Black Sheep @ Radio City Music Hall
Tons of old school rap that needs no introduction at tonight's 'Masters of Ceremony' show at Radio City.

Travis Morrison, Jeff Rosenstock, Max Low, Patrick Salt Ryan @ The Grand Victory
The Dismemberment Plan may be active again, but frontman Travis Morrison still makes time for his solo project. And on the other hand, Bomb the Music Industry! may have just ended, but frontman Jeff Rosenstock isn't going anywhere, as he's playing solo tonight too.

R. Stevie Moore, Gary Wilson @ Issue Project Room
Godfather of home recording R. Stevie Moore is guaranteed to put on a quirky show, but for some (especially those who like Ariel Pink), he'll likely be very inspiring too. Meanwhile, fellow cult legend Gary Wilson was making ahead-of-its-time new wave in the '70s and has also made fans of newer musicians like Beck and Questlove.

Andrew Cedermark, Tape Deck Mountain, Tiger Dare @ Glasslands
A former member of Titus Andronicus, Andrew Cedermark makes laid-back rock that fits right in on Underwater Peoples (former home of Real Estate).

North Highlands, Black Girls, Arms, Fasano @ Death By Audio
Superior locals North Highlands and Arms highlight this show which also features Richmond Virginia's Black Girls (stream their album below).

EL-P, The BOTS @ Converse Rubber Tracks
To celebrate the culmination of Converse Rubber Tracks' creative workshops, rapper El-P and rock duo The Bots play this final concert, which is free but you had to enter via Converse for a chance to get in.

JD Samson & MEN, Bright Light Bright Light @ Littlefield
Kathleen Hanna's band The Julie Ruin is probably the most talked-about post-Le Tigre project at the moment, but if you were into Le Tigre's dancey, passionate jams, JD Samson's band MEN continues to provide those. This show is a benefit for the Hetrick-Martin Institute, "which provides empowerment, education, and advocacy for LGBTQ youth in New York and New Jersey."

Darlings, The Doozies, Island Twins, Sundelles @ Shea Stadium
Darlings, who make crunchy/catchy indie rock, curated this bill, "handpicked for maximum good times."

Tournament, Liquor Store, Moon Dudes, Giggly Boys @ Legion Bar
There's some solid local punk at Legion tonight with the melodic aggression of Tournament and the garage rock leanings of Liquor Store.

Old Cole Younger, Beach Party, DJ Tennessee Thomas @ Baby's All Right
Cole Alexander of The Black Lips is in NYC tonight with his Old Cole Younger project (ahead of his band's upcoming tour) and LA garage punks Beach Party are on the bill too.

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

Black Lips aboard SS Coachella 2013 (more by Greg Cristman)

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

Election Day
Among other important races, we're getting a new mayor in NYC. Cast your vote!

The Black Lips, Tweens, Habibi @ Bowery Ballroom
Georgia garage rockers Black Lips are busy working on their new album but are taking a break with a short US tour. Get there early for Ohio's punky Tweens and Habibi, both of whom are good too. You can also catch Black Lips' Middle East tour documentary, Kids Like You and Me, at Village East Cinemas tonight.

Guantanamo Baywatch, Hector's Pets, A Rex & J Rex @ Death By Audio
Portland garage surf combo Guantanamo Baywatch play their first of three NYC-area shows tonight.

Coke Weed, Andrew Cedermark, Shorts @ Glasslands
Maine combo Coke Weed are descendents of The Velvet Underground's chugging psych rock -- a sound that never seems to go out of style and they do it well on their current album, Back to Soft. Former Titus Andronicus member Andrew Cedermark, whose new album is out on Underwater Peoples, opens.

Genders, The Attic Ends, Black Wing Halo, Cash Money & the Sellouts @ Arlene's Grocery
Portland psychedelic rockers Genders make dark, atmospheric stuff that's still pretty catchy. They're in NYC for three shows this week, and this is the final one.

John Vanderslice, Bent Shapes @ Mercury Lounge
Talented singer-songwriter John Vanderslice has been busy, releasing both a crowdfunded new album, Dagger Beach, and a song-for-song remake of Bowie's Diamond Dogs. Opening are Boston's Bent Shapes makers of edgy indiepop.

The Men, Purling Hiss, Pampers @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
The Men have shifted from powerhouse rock to allowing more jammy textures in of late, but still put on an intense live show. Opening are psych-rockers Purling Hiss and the speed-demon punk of Pampers.

Heaven's Gate, Yvette, Jazz Massagers @ Silent Barn
While they often get tagged shoegaze (and there is a smidge of that in their sound), Heaven's Gate are more of punky rock band, while still using a lot of effects pedals. And they're really good.

Tennis, Night Sweats, Savoir Adore, On An On, Poor Remy, Tor Miller, Michael Daves, Leif Vollebekk, Salt Cathedral,The Districts, Belle Mare @ Rockwood Music Hall
This multi-band bill is part of the travelling "Communion Presents" tour, headlined by Colorado lite-pop duo Tennis, who release their new EP for the Communion label today

The Head and the Heart, Thao & The Get Down Stay Down, Quiet Life @ Terminal 5
Sub Pop-signed folk collective The Head & the Heart have two big sold-out NYC shows this week, and tonight's at Terminal 5 is the biggest. Make sure you're there in time for Thao & the Get Down Stay Down too.

Nellie McKay @ The Bell House
Witty, charming and multitalented, singer-songwriter Nellie McKay just wrapped up a run of her lauded off-Broadway show, Old Hats. Tonight she performs as part of "Ask Me Another," which blends brainteasers and local pub trivia night with comedy and music.  Tickets are still available.

The Julie Ruin at Union Pool last month (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Julie Ruin

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

The Julie Ruin, Swearin' @ Bowery Ballroom
Kathleen Hanna, previously of Bikini Kill and Le Tigre, is back at the mic for a new band, The Julie Ruin (named after her 1998 solo album), who make a good mix of the sounds Kathleen has experimented with throughout her career. Their debut album is out today (have you streamed it?) and they're playing a sold-out show at Bowery Ballroom to celebrate. Openers Swearin' make scrappy, honest pop punk, and they're not to be missed either. The Julie Ruin will also be back for a Music Hall of Williamsbug show on October 25.

Beans, Pegasus Warning, Gobby, CX Kidtronik, The Juggs @ Glasslands
Abstract rapper Beans released his new collaborative EP with Mux Mool today, and he's celebrating that in Brooklyn with a release party at Glasslands. Mykki Blanco collaborator Gobby is worth seeing too.

Cy Dune, MEMS, Young and Often @ Pianos
Tonight Pianos hosts a number of musicians you're probably familiar with playing with projects you may be less familiar with. Seth Olinsky of Akron/Family headlines the night with his new riff-heavy project Cy Dune, Greg Saunier of Deerhoof is on the bill with his band MEMS, and Lorely Rodriguez (Empress Of) and Sam Owens (Celestial Shore) make up the duo Young and Often, who open the show.

Haim, IO Echo @ Webster Hall
Sibling trio Haim have spent most of the summer on the festival circuit, honing their live skills, doling out catchy, harmony-laden pop, and giving folks a taste of their debut album, Days Are Gone, which is out at the end of the month. Tonight's sold-out show is with IO Echo who you may have caught at Warm-Up over the long weekend.

The Music Tapes @ 133rd St. Arts Center Lab
Before Neutral Milk Hotel heads on tour, Julian Koster is doing one last run of shows for his band The Music Tapes at 133rd St. Arts Center Lab. Tonight's the dress rehearsal, and it's the first of five appearances this week. Free but RSVP is closed.

Andrew Cedermark, Big Search, Sleeping Bag @ Coco 66
One of the many ex-Titus Andronicus members, Andrew Cedermark has been operating as a solo artist for a few years now, and has a new album out this year.

Dr. Dog @ Mercury Lounge
Dr. Dog announced this show at the last minute and it sold right now, so if you've got tickets, you'll be getting a chance to see them in a pretty intimate environment before they tour with The Lumineers. Late show (10:30 PM).

Danny Brown, How To Dress Well, Speedy Ortiz @ NYU Mystery Show
This show is only open to those with an NYU student ID, and while the lineup is technically a mystery, clues have led us to believe the lineup is Danny Brown, How To Dress Well, and Speedy Ortiz.

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

Belle & Sebastian @ Williamsburg Waterfront, 2010 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Belle & Sebastian

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

Belle & Sebastian, Yo La Tengo @ Prospect Park Bandshell
Over the last 15 years, Belle & Sebastian have transformed from a shy band to a well-honed group of entertainers (with a catalog of great songs) who really know how to work a large outtoor crowd like the one they'll be in front of tonight. With Yo La Tengo on the bill too, it's a killer night under the stars. Sold out.

Sly & Robbie @ Metrotech Commons & Irving Plaza
Arguably the most famous rhythm section in all of reggae, Sly & Robbie have provided backbone for Gregory Isaacs, Jimmy Cliff, Black Uhuru, Peter Tosh, and Serge Gainsbourg, to name just a few. They've played on more than 200,000 (!) songs since the '70s. They play a free show at noon as part of BAM's R&B Festival at MetroTech, and then headline Irving Plaza tonight (tickets).

Toro y Moi, Shlohmo, Jonwayne @ House of Vans
After punk-heavy kickoff event, House of Vans goes for the groove tonight with Toro y Moi, Shlohmo and Jonwayne. This free show is RSVP'd out. If you got an RSVP, get there early. And be prepared to sweat.

Generationals, Sallie Ford & the Sound Outside, Waxahatchee @ Pier 84 (FREE)
The kickoff to this year's River Rocks series at Hudson River Park's Pier 84, headlined by New Orleans popsmiths Generationals. Get there early for Waxahatchee, though, too. 7 PM, free.

Mood Rings, Travis Bretzer @ Mercury Lounge
At their best (like single "The Line"), Atlanta's Mood Rings evoke the ethereal, sultry wonderland of late-'80s

Heathered Pearls, Prism House & more @ Ace Hotel
Heathered Pearls, who recently collaborated live with Dirty Beaches, headlines an all-DJ bill at Ace Hotel tonight.

Camp Bisco: Day 1 @ Indian Lookout Country Club
The jam/electronic festival has been expanding into other genres, and it's got a pretty awesome, diverse lineup this year. It kicks off today with sets from Squarepusher, Com Truise, Flosstradamus, RL Grime, and more.

Slingshot Dakota, Pet Symmetry, Timeshares, Turnip King @ Big Snow
Bethlehem, PA emo band Slingshot Dakota headlines a bill at Brooklyn DIY spot Big Snow tonight, and if you're going to that, Long Island indie rockers Turnip King are worth catching too.

Shugo Tokumaru, Mirah, OneOne (mem. of Deerhoof) @ Bowery Ballroom
Japanese singer-songwriter Shugo Tokumaru headlines Bowery Ballroom tonight, and there's also some pretty great support coming from Mirah and OneOne (aka Satomi from Deerhoof and Saya from Tenniscoats).

Lowdown Hudson Blues Festival @ Brookfield Place Plaza (FREE)
Though best known for their cover of "La Bamba," Los Lobos' have been making gritty latin-inflected rock for nearly 40 years. (1984's How Will the Wolf Survive? is a genuine classic.) They play tonight as part of the free, outdoor Lowdown Hudson Blues Festival which also includes Los Lonely Boys, Alejandro Escovedo. 6 PM.

Reggie Watts, Shining Mirrors @ Mercury Lounge
You never really know what comedian/musician Reggie Watts has in store, so tonight's sold-out show at Mercury Lounge is sure to be an interesting one.

UCBComedy Spotify Session: Adam Newman @ UCB East
UCBComedy is now on Spotify with standup from awesome comedians. The sets are recorded at UCBeast every month and released exclusively to Spotify. This month's comedian is Adam Newman (John Oliver's New York Stand-Up Show). And it's FREE.

The Armando Diaz Experience at The Magnet Theater
Straight out of Chicago, the Armando Diaz Experience features experienced improvisers creating scenes based on a monologist's stories. The featured monologist this week is comedian, writer, and actress Ophira Eisenberg (host of NPR's "Ask Me Another). Tickets are no longer available online, but stand-by is definitely a safe bet to get into this show.

For more laughs, check out the NYC Comedy calendar too.

Savages @ MHOW in March (more by Wyatt Marshall)
Savages
Savages, Johnny Hostile @ Webster Hall
While they aren't the kind of band likely to ever pen a summer hit, London's Savages make a perfect soundtrack to a sweltering night in the city. Sold out, but you can still get tickets to their T5 show in September.

TEEN @ MoMa
MoMa's summer early evening series continues tonight with Brooklyn's TEEN. The show happens in the Sculpture Garden, but if it's raining the music will take place in Theater 1 or Theater 2. Doors at 5:30 PM and TEEN are on at 6:30 PM. Free with museum admission.

Jonas Rathsman, Perseus @ Output
The weekly INPUT parties at Output continue tonight with sets from Swedish deep house producer Jonas Rathsman and like-minded US producer Perseus.

Andrew Cedermark, Liquor Store, Little Big League @ Shea Stadium
Once a Titus Andronicus member, but at this point probably more memorable for his own material, Andrew Cedermark is back with a new album, Home Life (stream it on NPR), and tonight he'll play a Brooklyn show at Shea Stadium with solid support coming from Liquor Store and Little Big League.

Jucifer, Vaporizer, Rozamov @ The Acheron
The towering wall of white cabinets will again appear at Acheron tonight, when the mighty Jucifer lays waste to the crowds with doom riff after vibrating doom riff. It's gonna hurt, but in the best way.

The Shrine, Dirty Fences, Hessian, Toaster @ The Grand Victory
SST style punk, thrash, riff-y stoner licks. What's not to like from The Shrine? And in Grand Victory... seems like a double win.

Get Involved, The Scandals, Descender & more @ Saint Vitus
Get Involved, the new post-hardcore supergroup with members of Thursday, Glassjaw, Judge, and more, play a Brooklyn show tonight at Saint Vitus. And if you're going, definitely catch worthy newcomers The Scandals, who sound a bit like a heavier Gaslight Anthem (who they play with soon).

Monkey: Journey to the West @ David H. Koch Theater
Damon Albarn, Chen Shi-Zheng, and Jamie Hewlett's musical take on one of China's most famous tales features acrobats, martial arts, and an array of contortionists. It made its NYC over the weekend and continues tonight.

Preservation Hall Jazz Band @ McKittrick Hotel
Preservation Hall Jazz Band continue their week-long run at McKittrick Hotel tonight.

Fuel, Hoobastank, LIT, Alien Ant Farm @ The Paramount
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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

Hume at BV-Northside 2012 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Hume

Baltimore reverberators Hume, who played the BV Northside showcase back in June, are set to head out on an extensive North American tour which kicks off later this month. That tour brings them to NYC for a stacked bill with local faves Quilt and Andrew Cedermark at Cameo Gallery on August 31. No advance tickets for this show, but $8 tix will be available at the door.

Quilt just wrapped up a tour with Young Magic which culminated in NYC at Mercury Lounge on Sunday (7/29). That show was one of four NYC shows this week and last for Louisville band Murals, who also played Pianos last Friday (7/27).

Meanwhile, you can catch Andrew Cedermark in NYC even sooner when he supports Real Estate at their upcoming Webster Hall show on August 11 with R. Stevie Moore. Tickets for that show are still available.

Lushlife

As mentioned, Philadelphia rapper Lushlife is prepping his new mixtape, No More Golden Days, for release this October. The mixtape features Heems (of Das Racist), Cities Aviv, QueST, STS, Jabee, Sun Glitters, and Andrew Cedermark (ex Titus Andronicus). You can grab the track "Back On My Slang" ft. QueST HERE and grab the Andrew Cedermark-featured "The Romance of the Telescope" above (it makes its debut in this post). The track reworks the OMD track of the same name from 1983's Dazzle Ships. You can check out the track's artwork below.

Lushlife also has an album on the way with a guest appearance from Styles P of The Lox.

Speaking of OMD, they've got a tour coming up which includes NYC shows on September 20 and 21 at Irving Plaza. Tickets for both shows are still on sale.

Hopscotch 2011

The second annual Hopscotch Festival will go down in downtown Raleigh, North Carolina, across 12 different venues with over 135 bands, from September 8th through 10th. The lineup this year runs the gamut of independent music... from traditional indie staples (The Flaming Lips, Guided By Voices, Superchunk) to southern-inflected rock (Drive-By Truckers) to noise (Prurient) to hip hop (Beans) to garage (Jeff The Brotherhood) to funk (Budos Band) to metal (Krallice), and everywhere in between (Swans, Rhys Chatham, etc etc). Tickets are currently on sale. Full lineup is below.

Hopscotch happens almost three months after Guided By Voices play a Brooklyn Northside Festival show in McCarren Park (tickets) which is one day after Beirut plays a Northside Festival show on the same McCarren Park stage with... Sharon Van Etten (though she may have been accidentally announced at one point, they officially kept her placement on the bill under wraps until after Saturday's Music Hall of Williamsburg show). Tickets for Beirut/SVE are still on sale, and another opener will be added too.

Guided by Voices (whose Brooklyn show also has more openers coming) are also playing Pitchfork in July with Animal Collective whose Prospect Park show is now on AmEx presale.

Swans' upcoming NYC show is now on AmEx presale too.

Hopscotch lineup below...

Lord Huron
Lord Huron

As Bill pointed out in his DAYTIME picks, Pitchfork's #OFFLINE Festival kicks off today at Brooklyn Bowl (10/21) .

Ex-Titus Andronicus member Andrew Cedermark will appear at Pitchfork's #OFFLINE party on 10/22 (one day before Titus Andronicus play the mini fest). Andrew Cedermark also plays the Microphone Memory Emotion & Rose Quartz Showcase at Shea Stadium that same night, with Ecstatic Sunshine, Family Portrait, Street Chant, Fluffy Lumbers, and Nude Beach. You can also catch him at the Underwater Peoples showcase at Glasslands the day before (today, 10/21). Underwater Peoples will also feature appearances from The Crayon Fields, Fabulous Diamonds, Air Waves, La Big Vic, and Guy Blackman, and will kick off at 8PM.

You can also catch the Crayon Fields Saturday at our day party at Public Assembly. Titus Andronicus too.

New Jersey's Big Troubles have nothing to do with high taxes, the turnpike, or a superfluous amount of hair gel, but have a lot to do with noise-damaged shoegazey 80s-style pop. The band will play #OFFLINE on 10/22, and will also play Bruar Falls on 10/23 with Woven Bones, and Eternal Summers. The day after CMJ comes to a close (10/24) look for them at Living Room with Eternal Summers, but only if you are a young kid or parent of one. The band will also play Mercury Lounge on 11/12 with Magic Kids and Bosco Delray (tickets) in addition to dates at Shea Stadium (11/13) and Glasslands (11/21).

LA's Lord Huron is in town to play three shows. He'll play the Forcefield CMJ showcase at Pianos with The So So Glos, Wild Nothing, Woven Bones, Violens, and La Sera. Doors open at 7:45pm. The next day (10/23), the band will play the #OFFLINE show at Brooklyn Bowl, and then hit Bowery Ballroom to team up with Surfer Blood, Neon Indian, DOM, Wild Nothing, Lower Dens, Lia Ices, Fake Problems, Braids, MA.Mentor and The Static Jacks.

Wild Nothing also plays our Saturday day party. Dom and Lower Dens play the one we're doing on Friday.

Glasser kicks off a three-show CMJ run tonight (10/21)

Tonight is also the BrooklynVegan showcase at Music Hall of Williamsburg!

Matthew Dear @ MHOW in 2008 (more by Bao Nguyen)
Matthew Dear

As mentioned, Pitchfork will be hosting three days of shows at Brooklyn Bowl during, but-it-looks-like/probably completely unaffiliated with, CMJ this year (Thursday/Friday/Saturday CMJ week). "Brooklyn Bowl is located at 61 Wythe Avenue between N. 11th and N. 12th streets. The festival starts at 2 p.m. each day, with doors opening at 1 p.m. Tickets are $10, both in advance and day of the show." They're calling it the #OFFLINE Festival.

Based on the lineups and start time, it looks like each #OFFLINE day will be about a 12 hour show. No set times yet though, but the full lineups and ticket links are below...

Matthew Dear is one of the biggest names on the list (he plays Saturday), and it will be one of three CMJ week shows for Matthew. His first is Friday night at Webster Hall with Jamaica and Dominique Young Unique. His third is later on Saturday at Public Assembly for the FIXED/Making Time Party with Matthew Dear, Crocodiles, Holy Ghost!, Javelin, Gold Panda, Jamaica, and Kisses.

The FIXED/Making Time party starts after the BrooklynVegan party which is also happening at Public Assembly that same day. Just to be clear:

SATURDAY OCTOBER 23RD
* BrooklynVegan @ Public Assembly 12-6pm (free - more details TBA)
* FIXED/Making Time @ Public Assembly 9pm-late (tickets)
* Pitchfork @ Brooklyn Bowl 2pm-late (tickets)
* BrooklynVegan metal @ Union Pool 7pm-late ($5.00 or CMJ badge at the door)

We (BrooklynVegan) will also be at Public Assembly all day on Friday, October 22nd (details TBA), and at Music Hall of Williamsburg on the Thursday night.

DOWNLOAD: The Crayon Fields - Make Peace with Love EP (via Bandcamp)

1900s

Melbourne, Australia's chamber pop-y Crayon Fields are coming back to America for a tour that will hit NYC during the CMJ Music Marathon. While more CMJ shows will surely be announced, Crayon Fields are at least playing the Chapter Music/Underwater Peoples showcase at Glasslands on October 21 with Air Waves, Andrew Cedermark, La Big Vic, Fabulous Diamonds and Guy Blackman.

Crayon Fields have a new downloadable EP, Make Peace with Love, to coincide with the tour featuring a new song, a live version of "Graceless," a great remix of "All the Pleasures of the World" and a cover of Roxette's "It Must be Love." You can get it for the price of your email address via their Bandcamp page.

If you haven't heard last year's wonderful All the Pleasures of the World, one of my favorites of 2009, you should really rectify that. It's modern baroque pop, full of swoony strings, breathy vocals and memorable melodies. You can download the title track at the top of this post. They were terrific when I saw them at Bruar Falls back in March. Definitely try and catch them if you can.

All 2010 North American Crayon Fields dates, plus some videos, are after the jump...
