Divine Fits @ SXSW 2013 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Hollerado @ Glasslands in January (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)
My Morning Jacket, Grizzly Bear, Divine Fits, The Wallflowers, James Murphy (DJ Set) @ Times Square
Like they did last year, CBGB Festival is throwing a big free concert in Times Square. This year's feature's two major indie bands -- My Morning Jacket and Grizzly Bear -- a side project made of two major indie bands -- Divine Fits (Wolf Parade and Spoon) -- a DJ set from LCD Soundsystem/DFA Records guy/David Bowie remixer James Murphy, and The Wallflowers.
Like last year too, there are two stages -- North and South -- in two segments: 11 AM - 2PM (Lisa Loeb, The Wallflowers, Divine Fits) and 4 PM - 7 PM (James Murphy, Grizzly Bear, MMJ). The only specific set times we know are Divine Fits are at 1 PM and Grizzly Bear at 5 PM (both play the North Stage). You can kinda estimate what the other set times will be from that. More info is here.
Spiritualized, No Joy, Connan Mockasin, Lansing-Dreiden, Linda Perhacs, Quilt, CO LA, Lilacs & Champagne, Happy Jawbone Family Band, Weyes Blood, Soldiers of Fortune @ Pioneer Works
Day two of Mexican Summer's 5th Anniversary is another incredibly line-up of music with the U.S. live debut of avant-kiwi Connan Mockasin, a reunion of enigmatic artrockers Lansing-Dreiden, the NYC live debut of cult folkie Linda Perhacs... not to mention Spiritualized, No Joy, Quilt and more. Tickets are still available.
Kelela, Dance System, Secret Guest, J-Cush, Durban @ 285 Kent Avenue
Kelela first caught our attention when she appeared on the newest Teengirl Fantasy album, and she's since made her way into the Fade to Mind universe, roping in producers like Nguzunguzu, Kingdom, Bok Bok, Jam City, Girl Unit, and others for her debut album/mixtape, CUT 4 ME, which is out now.
Meat Puppets, Enemy Planes @ Brooklyn Bowl
One of the pioneers of cowpunk with 30 years under their belts, Meat Puppets have settle into a laid back groove as comfortable and familiar an an old pair of jeans. There's a reason you still love them.
Nic Lawless (& His Young Criminals), Pat DiNizio (of the Smithereens), Jon Caspi & The First Gun, Bronze Fondue, The X-Men, Creeptones @ Cake Shop
Smithereens frontman Pat DiNizio headlines this night of garagey powerpop as part of the CBGB Festival.
The Features, Hollerado @ Glasslands
Tennessee band The Features are just fine, but we'd go just to see Canadian rockers Hollerado who mix hooks, smarts and chops -- plus a few well-aimed confetti cannons.
The X-Patsys, Rhys Chatham @ Issue Project Brookyln
IPR continues its 10-year Anniversary tonight with avant-garde country band The X-Patsys (aka actress Barbara Sukowa and artists Robert Longo and Jon Kessler).
Hanni El Khatib, Bass Drum of Death, Ivan & The Parazol @ Knitting Factory
You get two sides of the garage coin with this tour: BDoD unleash party-friendly rippers, where Hanni El Khatib are more on the soulful side. This is the second of two NYC shows for these two groups.
Waiting for Henry, Valley Lodge @ Mercury Lounge
You know Dave Hill as a comedian and shirtless concertgoer, but did you know he can also shred? Catch his seriously impressive guitar skills tonight with his band Valley Lodge.
Fuzz, CCR Headcleaner @ Mercury Lounge
Do you pine for the early '70s monster riff days of Blue Cheer and prime Black Sabbath? Ty Segall does too, hence his proto-metal band Fuzz in which he sings and plays drums, heavy on the fills. Tonight's stop with tourmates CCR Headcleaner is sold out, but you can catch them on Sunday at Death by Audio.
Obits @ The Bell House, 2011 (more by Erik Erikson)
Obits, Lame Drivers, Family Curse @ The Rock Shop
Obits' third album, Bed & Bugs, recently dropped on Sub Pop and it's their most varied album to date, but still a rager -- and maybe the best thing they've done yet. Get up close tonight in the tiny confines of The Rock Shop.
Comedy Bang Bang Live @ NYU Skirball Center
Do you enjoy the awkward talk show comedy of IFC's Comedy Bang Bang? Sweater-loving host Scott Aukerman has taken the show on the road. Bandleader Reggie Watts isn't part of it but Paul F. Tompkins is, though if Reggie was going to make a suprise appearance anywhere in the country, it would probably be here. Sold out.
Solar Year, Black City Lights, Prism House, GPSYMTH @ Pianos
NYC-via-Montreal production duo Solar Year might be best known for their Grimes collaboration, but they also make some solid electronic pop of their own.
Antibalas, TUELO & Her Cousins @ Roulette
NYC Afrobeat band Antibalas are playing two hometown shows this weekend. Tonight's is a benefit for MIMA Music (whose mission is "to build a global network of arts-education programs, music education partners, and music based curriculum in under-served schools around the world"), and tomorrow they're at Highline.
Ski Lodge, Love Inks, Swimming, Napolean, Truthers @ Shea Stadium
Austin's Love Inks keep their arrangements sparse, allowing the airy charms of their songs to shine through. Their new album, Generation Club, is a winner. We like headliners Ski Lodge too, of course.
Arto Lindsay, Saint Rich, Callers, Celestial Shore @ The Bowery Electric
This is one of the better CBGB Festival shows, headlined by Arto Lindsay, who actually played CBGB a few times back in the day with his no wave band DNA. Opening are three younger local bands: Delicate Steve offshoot Saint Rich, indie folk-turned-indie pop band Callers, and avant-pop trio Celestial Shore.
Those Darlins, Gambles @ Union Pool
Tennessee's Those Darlins started off making '70s Loretta Lynn style country but quickly grew beyond those constraints. Their third album, Blur The Line, adds a little glitter to the mix, making for sleek, snarly rock.
CocoRosie @ Webster Hall
CocoRosie are back with their first new full length in three years, and after previewing songs from it at an intimate Brooklyn show before its release, and tonight they play a much bigger NYC show, and their first one since the LP's release.
Brian Wilson, Jeff Beck @ NYCB Theatre At Westbury
The band who currently tours as The Beach Boys may not include their main songwriter Brian Wilson as a member, but Brian's on the road with fellow ex-Beach Boys Al Jardine and Dave Marks, plus guitar maestro Jeff Beck, playing a ton of favorites from The Beach Boys' career. They hit NYC next week, but tonight they're in the area for a Long Island show.
Bonobo, Paul Basic @ Terminal 5
UK IDM producer Bonobo released his newest album, The North Borders, earlier this year via Ninja Tune, and played Webster Hall around the time of its release. Tonight he returns to NYC for his largest headlining show here yet, Terminal 5. After the show, Bonobo DJs the afterparty at Slake.
Ginger Baker @ Iridium
One of the greatest living drummers of any genre, Ginger Baker is best known as one third of Cream but is a master of many styles. This is his first of a five-night run at Iridium, and tonight's show is part of the CBGB Festival too. 8 PM and 10 PM shows.
Glenn Tilbrook @ Wonder Bar
One half of one of the best songwriting teams of the last 35 years, Squeeze's Glen Tilbrook will pull from that deep cannon of catchy tunes tonight. Funny guy too.
Modern Life Is War @ The Studio at Webster Hall (early) and Saint Vitus (late)
Modern Life Is War had a six-year career with three excellent albums in the 2000s, and after calling it quits, they sort of unexpectedly became a super influential band, with their melodic hardcore style coming back to life in bands like Touche Amore, Defeater, and others. Now they're fully back in action with a solid new album, Fever Hunting, and an active touring schedule that hits NYC for two sold out shows tonight. Studio show will be opened by Night Birds, Deathcycle, and Wet Witch; and Vitus will be opened by Incendiary and Survival (not the Hunter Hunt-Hendrix one).
For all of tonight's shows, and tomorrow's, check out our full NYC show calendar.

Brooklyn's Celestial Shore released their new album, 10x, last week via Hometapes. "Beachy" is a term that's thrown around a lot with them, and you can hear traces of Brian Wilson in their harmonies, but "Little Deuce Coup" this ain't. The group bring an intricate mathy-ness to the music, with frequent time/tempo changes making the album right at, er, home on Hometapes (All Tiny Creatures, Slaraffenland). You can stream two tracks from the album below and the whole thing via Spotify or Rdio.
Celestial Shore play a record release party tonight (9/13) at Silent Barn. Openers are Empress Of and TEEN (both who could probably headline Silent Barn on their own), plus Bueno. The band have a bunch of upcoming NYC shows, actually. They'll support Darwin Deez and Caged Animals at Knitting Factory on September 29 (tickets); play Grand Victory on October 4 with Feuding Fathers; open for Arto Lindsay as part of the CBGB Fest at Bowery Electric on October 12 (tickets); and play with Luke Temple at Le Poisson Rouge on October 14 (tickets). All dates are listed below.
Empress Of also recently announced shows with the 4AD-signed SOHN.
All Celestial Shore dates are listed, along with song streams, below...
Arto Lindsay of legendary no wave group DNA, The Lounge Lizards, and pursuer of an impressive solo career, will be performing material from throughout his career in NYC TONIGHT (11/30) at the New Museum. Tickets for the show ($12 for members, $15 for non-members) are available.
Speaking of no wave legends, Lydia Lunch (Teenage Jesus and the Jerks), who played Knitting Factory earlier this month will be playing with her band Big Sexy Noise in NYC on December 17 at Bowery Electric with "Caught on Tape" duo Thurston Moore/John Moloney. Tickets for that show are on sale now.
For Thurston Moore and John Moloney, the Bowery Electric show is part of a short December northeast tour that the duo will be on, which also includes the previously discussed Brooklyn show at Union Pool on December 11 with Speedy Ortiz and Lone Wolf. All of their dates are listed below.
In other related news, Thurston's ex-wife/Sonic Youth bandmate Kim Gordon, who will guest at the upcoming, sold-out Dinosaur Jr. You're Living All Over Me show at T5, will also be a guest with John Cale (of the Velvet Underground) when he does a tribute to Nico at BAM on January 16 at the Peter Jay Sharp Building. Other guests at that show include Mark Lanegan, Sharon Van Etten, Magnetic Fields, Joan as Police Woman, Peaches, Nick Franglen, and Meshell Ndegocello. Tickets for that show are available. It's one of two shows that John Cale is doing for the BAM Next Wave festival.
A list of all Thurston Moore/John Moloney dates and some videos, below.
No Wave legend and all-around cool dude Arto Lindsay will be performing this evening (8/8) in Union Square as part of the free Summer Nights series which is presented by the Arte Institute. Tonight's program, curated by Sao Paulo, Brazil's Instituto de Cultura Contemporeana-ICC, begins at 8 PM and also features videos by artist Eder Santos and director Cao Guimaraes. More info on tonight's show is here.
Arto Lindsay has also been added to the 285 Kent show on Friday (8/10) that was already a really good line-up with Fergus & Geronimo, Peoples Temple, Family Curse, Mannequin Pussy and DJs Habibi.
In other David Byrne news, he's been writing about a recent trip to Brazil on his blog. For instance...
Paulinha throws a party at the house in the evening. There is a room with rotating fans set up for dancing (I do) and 2 Baianas on a patio making acarajé and abara (the steamed rather than deep fried version of the bean cake). A bartender makes caipirinhas and batidas out of fresh maracuja (passion fruit).While he was there he also "picked up a pile of CDs" - "Some contemporary stuff like Lenine, but mostly Afro-Samba bands, Northeastern stuff and some other beautifully recorded folkloric artists..." And that's how he programmed his current Radio David Byrne playlist.
Arto Lindsay is here with his wife. I haven't seen him in years. He's been in Salvador for a number of years, but now he's moving to Rio as there will be more work there. Good to see him.
We leave around two and we hear that, at four AM, just as the party was winding down, Seu Jorge and Beth Carvalho (the singers) show up -- both of them with their entourages. The bartenders rolled their eyes as if to say "now the party will start all over again".
He also wrote an interesting blog post about the battle between Bratz and Barbie (Bratz lost).
The above picture is of the Deluxe version of David Byrne and Brian Eno's new album.
