Full Central Park Summerstage 2014 schedule below...
England's Glastonbury Festival is pretty much the forefather to all crazy worldwide "20,000 people standing in a field" festivals we have today.

It includes Arcade Fire, Jack White, Dolly Parton (!), Elbow, Disclosure, Bryan Ferry, Massive Attack, Pixies, M.I.A., Dexys Midnight Runners, Kasabian, Lily Allen and loads more. The festival's already sold-out. A few more acts -- including one more headliner -- is still to be announced but lineup as it stands is below...
Tweens at BV-SXSW 2014 (more by Tim Griffin)
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
The Dillinger Escape Plan, Trash Talk, Retox, Shining @ Webster Hall
It's a killer night for heavy music at Webster Hall with spazzy metalcore rippers The Dillinger Escape Plan, the insane Trash Talk who will surely make at least a portion of the crowd very wild, Justin Pearson's (The Locust) new punky band Retox, and Norwegian Blackjazz band Shining.
Rocket from the Crypt, The So So Glos @ The Bell House
Rocket From the Crypt is one of the great John Reis' many bands (also of Drive Like Jehu, Hot Snakes, Sultans, Night Marchers, etc), and their mix of '90s punk and horn-filled rock 'n' roll swagger resulted in a handful of great records before their breakup in the mid 2000s. Now they're back on a reunion tour, and tonight's their second of two NYC shows this week. So So Glos are worth catching as well.
Tweens, Shellshag, Scully, Bennio Qwerty @ Death by Audio
Tweens make rowdy, extremely catchy garage punk that's good recorded but really comes across in a live setting. The Cincinnati band will be joined by solid local support from veteran DIY duo Shellshag, Scully (the new band from 3 members of The Splinters), and rage rock trio Bennio Qwerty (ex-North Highlands).
Kelela, Jubilee (DJ), Rizzla (DJ), special guests @ Rough Trade NYC
While the "alt-R&B" tag is getting very popular, and it's questionable how much of that stuff really deserves the "alt" prefix, Kelela definitely does. She works with various underground producers (mostly of the Night Slugs/Fade to Mind crew) and really pushes the boundaries of the genre. Tonight's her first of two sold out shows at Rough Trade.
Carsick Cars, Hamish Kilgour, White+, Cover Band @ Baby's All Right
Beijing noise rockers Carsick Cars tone down the squall a bit on their new album, letting their VU side rise to the top. The band are wrapping up their tour with a couple NYC shows, the first being tonight. The Clean's Hamish Kilgour (who produced Carsick Cars new album) opens, as do another band from Bejiing, duo White.
Hurray for the Riff Raff @ Lincoln Center (American Songbook)
The American Songbook series continues tonight with Hurray for the Riff Raff, who may not have the best band name, but do make great unpolished country, which takes much of its influence from over half a century ago.
Rone, Aquarian, Ital @ Glasslands
Paris/Berlin producer makes electronic music that leans more towards the cerebral side than something you would dance to. Good local and likeminded support too.
Bonobo (DJ), FaltyDL, option4, Birocratic @ Stage 48
Bonobo's live band continues to get huge (they sold out Terminal 5 their last time here), but tonight he returns on his own to DJ, and local producer FaltyDL makes this bill pretty strong too.
Tomas Barfod (DJ), Great Dane, Silent Rider @ The Studio at Webster Hall
Another DJ headliner tonight is Tomas Barfod, the Danish producer who recently signed to Secretly Canadian.
Cosmonauts, Black Sea @ Mercury Lounge
OC garage rockers Cosmonauts have grown more rhythmic and psych of late, venturing into near Madchester territory. This is the the second NYC date on their tour with Black Sea.
Dub Thompson @ Pianos
California's Dub Thompson will release their debut album in June via Dead Oceans. We've only heard one song of theirs -- the funky first single, "Dog Races," which is a little reminiscent of mid-'90s Beck or Soul Coughing. We're intrigued. This is a late show, with doors at midnight.
Neotantrik featuring Suzanne Ciani, Pietnastka @ Lincoln Center (Unsound Fest)
Unsound Festival continues tonight at David Rubenstein Atrium at Lincoln Center with the first-ever collaboration between Neotantrik (Demdike Stare's Sean Canty and Andy Votel) and electronic music pioneer Suzanne Ciani. Pietnastka opens, and this show is totally FREE.
Kataklysm, Aborted, Pyrexia, Winter Nights @ Saint Vitus
Arena-style death metal gets crammed into a pocket-sized package at this Vitus gig. Aborted and Kataklysm usually play package bills at big clubs; catch their blast-heavy schticks up close and personal here. Long-running Long Islanders Pyrexia keep the momentum going after returning to the fray with last year's Feast of Iniquity.
Art Garfunkel @ State Theatre
Maybe Simon wrote the songs, but Garfunkel's voice was a key part of that legendary duo's sound too, and you can catch him on his own at 3 NYC-area shows this week, this being the second.
Miley Cyrus, Icona Pop, Sky Ferreira @ Izod Center
For better or for worse, Sky Ferreira and Icona Pop have certainly gained some indie cred, which could potentially make it seem strange that they're touring with Miley. But if you live in a universe where "You're Not the One" and "I Love It" sound out of place on a playlist next to "Wrecking Ball," you live in a different universe than us. This is their first of three NYC-area dates, with Barclays Center happening this Saturday and Nassau Coliseum later in the month.
The Kevin Drew (of Broken Social Scene) show that would have happened at Bowery Ballroom tonight was postponed to April 28.
For all of tonight's shows, and tomorrow's, check out our NYC concert calendar.
For laughs, check out the NYC Comedy calendar too.

Slayer/Glass Candy/Polyphonic Spree/Slayer surfer @ FFF Fest 2013
Closing Fun Fun Fun Fest, Slayer treated Austin to greatest hits and then some: "Raining Blood," "South of Heaven," "Dead Skin Mask," "Seasons in the Abyss," etc. They also dug out the aforementioned "Die by the Sword," a high point off their 1983 debut LP, Show No Mercy.The eighth Fun Fun Fun Fest happened last weekend (11/8 - 11/10) at Austin's Auditorium Shores, hosting three days of music and fun (fun fun), with such acts as MIA, Deerhunter, Slayer, Television, Thee Oh Sees, Kurt Vile, Cut Copy. Johnny Marr, The Walkmen, Jurassic 5, Killer Mike and loads more. Many of them played again as part of the FFF Nites shows, including shows presented by BrooklynVegan and Invisible Oranges.
After fooling no one with a false ending of "South of Heaven," the third backdrop of the night unfurled at the back of the stage: a parody of the Heineken logo reading "Hanneman" and bearing his life dates. The top read "Angel of Death." Reign in Blood's terrifying opening track - and closing number on Auditorium Shores - now serves as an epitaph for Slayer's fallen co-founder. - [Austin Chronicle]
We were there in the thick of it and, as mentioned above, you can check out pics from Day 1 HERE and HERE, pics from Day 2 pics HERE and HERE; and pics from Day 3 are HERE and HERE. See you again in 2014 Austin.

Bonobo @ Terminal 5 - 10/12/13
UK producer Bonobo released his newest album, North Borders, this past spring via Ninja Tune, and he's been supporting it on the road, hitting increasingly larger venues. Back in April, around the album's release, he came to NYC for a sold out Webster Hall show, and this past Saturday (10/12) he returned for his largest headlining show here yet, Terminal 5 (also sold out). Bonobo performed with live instrumentation and live vocals, making for a much more fleshed-out affair than you may have guessed you'd gotten from listening to the record. After the show, Bonobo headed to Slake to DJ the official afterparty (anyone go to that? how was it?). Pictures of the T5 show, including opener Paul Basic, are in this post.

That tour comes to NYC for a previously mentioned show at Webster Hall on April 12.

UK producer Bonobo (aka Simon Green) is finally releasing the followup to 2010's Black Sands, almost exactly three years after that album's release. The new album's called The North Borders and it will be out on April 1 via Ninja Tune. The first single from the album, "Cirrus," is a gentle downtempo cut with delicate bells and other small details sparsely placed in. You can listen to it below and watch its retro-futuristic visual clip below. The song is also available to download in exchange for your email address at Bonobo's website. That's the cover art above.
Bonobo will be supporting the new album with an international tour that hits NYC on April 12 at Webster Hall. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday, February 1 at noon with an AmEx presale starting Wednesday (1/30) at noon.
A list of all dates and that video below...
Chicago footwork producer DJ Rashad released the excellent TEKLIFE Vol. 1: Welcome to the Chi album earlier this year, and played a Brooklyn show at 285 Kent soon after with Total Freedom and J-Cush.

No word on who the guest is, but the show is the official after party for the Gang Gang Dance and Prince Rama show happening at 285 Kent earlier that night (the third of three GGD shows in NYC this weekend). Admission for this all ages party is $5 before 1 AM and $10 after.

Back in May, drill & bass master Squarepusher announced a North American tour which included a TBA NYC show set to happen on October 30. Well it turns out the NYC show will actually be on November 1 and it happens at Terminal 5 with a great list of openers; Bonobo (DJ), Holy Fuck, and Mount Kimbie. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (6/29) at noon with an AmEx presale starting today (6/27) at noon. All Squarepusher dates are listed below.
Squarepusher released his new album, Ufabulum, in May and it's a pretty solid one. It opens with "4001," which is just about the only song that sounds like classic Squarepusher, and is then followed by, "Unreal Square," which brings in a bit of brostep bass wobble. The rest of the album sees Squarepusher diving into nutty jazz fusion and unstoppable breakbeats. You can stream three of its tracks below.
Speaking of Mount Kimbie, they've signed to Warp, the label which Squarepusher also calls home, and currently at work on their second album which will be released on the label. The Terminal 5 show appears to be their only announced North American date at the moment.
Holy Fuck and Bonobo will be in NY even sooner for Camp Bisco, which goes down from July 12-14 at Indian Lookout Country Club in Mariaville, NY. They'll be joining a lineup which includes Tycho, Simian Mobile Disco, Skrillex, Amon Tobin ISAM, Big Boi, Crystal Castles, Yacht, Mr. Muthafuckin' eXquire, Shigeto, FaltyDL, Thundercat, and more.
