Chris Gethard Show Premiere Party w/ Screaming Females, Hiccup, Mal Blum @ Rough Trade
BrooklynVegan is excited to be presenting this show, which is the premiere party for comedian Chris Gethard's debut on cable TV. HIs show, formerly on public access, will now be on cable network Fusion, and at Rough Trade tonight the first episode will be screened. Additionally there's music from his talented friends, including NJ shredders Screaming Females, Bomb the Music Industry frontman-turned-solo artist Jeff Rosenstock, singer/songwriter Mal Blum, and Hiccup who include Unlovables singer Hallie Bulliet, who's also a member of The Chris Gethard Show's house band. To get in you needed to RSVP (which is now closed), but even with RSVP admission is first come, first served. Get there early!
Neil Hagerty (of Royal Trux), PC Worship, Sore Eros @ Baby's All Right
While people wait for the Royal Trux reunion that's happening this August (and so far only in LA), you can catch one half the band, Neil Hagerty, tonight with likeminded noisemakers PC Worship and long-running CT-based band Sore Eros.
Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Naomi Shelton & Gospel Queens @ Bowery Ballroom
The JSBX ran through the better part of NYC not too long ago as part of their whirlwind Five Borough Freedom Tour and now they're back as part of their proper tour supporting their terrific new LP, Freedom Tower - No Wave Dance Party 2015.
Beverly, EZTV, Wildhoney, Roman a Clef, Souvenir Stand @ Cake Shop (NYC Popfest)
It's opening night of NYC Popfest, featuring a host of jangly goodness, including the Prefab Sprout-loving Roman a Clef, Baltimore's shoegazey Wildhoney, power-poppers EZTV and headliners Beverly. Keeping things flowing in between sets will be BV editor Bill Pearis on DJ duty.
Pixies, John Grant @ Kings Theatre
While it's not quite the same without Kim Deal, Pixies continue on, delivering the hits. If you're going to this show, we highly recommend you get there for opener John Grant, whose funny, sad songs and and magnetic stage presences is not to be missed.
Patrick Watson, The Low Anthem @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Last week, Montreal's Patrick Watson released his newest album, Lost Songs for Robots (via Domino), which is a lushly arranged chamber pop album and a very good one. Tonight's his first of two NYC shows on his tour supporting it (the second one is in December), and indie folk band The Low Anthem opens.
Worriers, Caves, Sundials, Alice @ Silent Barn
Worriers, the current band of former The Measure [sa] singer Lauren Denitzio, are preparing to release their new Laura Jane Grace-produced album on Don Giovanni, and from the sounds of first single "They / Them / Theirs," it's looking like it's gonna be pretty great. Also on tonight's bill is their British tourmates Caves, Richmond's '90s-style indie rockers Sundials, and another DG band, Alice.
Hudson Mohawke @ Irving Plaza
The very talented Scottish producer Hudson Mohawke has made beats for Kanye West, worked as one half of TNGHT, and is also a worthy solo artist. For the first time ever, he's put together a live band to perform his music, and the debut of that live show is tonight.
Daedelus, M!NT, Treasure Fingers @ Verboten
Electronic wiz Daedelus last released his The Light Brigade LP on Brainfeeder in late 2014, and tonight he returns to NYC in continued support of it.
James Holden (live), Forma, JDH @ Le Poisson Rouge
James Holden still hasn't released a followup to 2013's great IDM opus, The Inheritors (given that followed his 2006 debut, it may be a while), but with singles dating back to 2000, he's got no lack of worthy material to pull from in tonight's live set.
Bonobo (DJ set) @ Output
As a live act, electronic musician Bonobo has gotten pretty huge, headlining big places like Central Park and Terminal 5. Tonight he's in DJ mode, but will surely still get the party going.
Jack and Eliza, The Britanys @ Mercury Lounge
Jack & Eliza make charming '60s-inspired pop with hints of Ricky Nelson or The Everly Brothers, or even a bit like early Slow Club. Their debut album, Gentle Warnings, is out June 9.
Marcos Valle with Carlos Lyra @ Birdland
Brazil's Marcos Valle has had a long career, stretching back to the '60s. But he may be best known now for his 1982 single "Estrellar" which was used in a Southern Comfort ad shown a lot during last year's World Cup telecasts. Fans of samba, bossa nova, jazz, disco and kitschy fun take note -- he's at Birdland through Saturday.
Grounders, Royal Garde, Teen Body @ Studio at Webster Hall
Toronto band Grounders take a traditional '60s pop sensibility and fry it till golden brown, glistening and modern.
A Comedy Tribute to Devo @ Littlefield
Celebrating the new wave icons' classic 1980 album Freedom of Choice -- as well as the new 33 1/3 book on it -- tonight features Evie Nagy, Fort Lean, Jake Fogelnest, Dave Hill, Sara Benincasa, Liam McEneaney, and Joe Garden. Unfortunately original Devo member Gerard Casale had to cancel his appearance.
Marshall Crenshaw Band @ City Winery
Best known for his 1982 hit "Someday Someway," Marshall Crenshaw has had a long carreer as a pop songwriter with a deep catalog of super catchy songs.
Gene Ween (does Billy Joel) @ Brooklyn Bowl
While the actual Billy Joel continues his unending Madison Square Garden residency tonight, Aaron Freeman (aka Gene Ween) will explore "his deep and abiding man-love for the music of Billy Joel. Backed by a 7 piece band of fellow Joelophiles, Gene tears through the hits, and only the hits, from the man from Oyster Bay."
Wizard Rifle, Huldra, Eidetic Seeing @ Bowery Electric
For your daily dose of both noise rock and metal, tonight's show with Portland, OR's Wizard Rifle is the place to be. They cite both Lightning Bolt and High on Fire as influences, and it's not hard to see why.
Slim Cessna's Auto Club, The Hunting Party @ Mercury Lounge
Slim Cessna and crew have been making gothic alt-country for over 20 years, as they recently chronicled in their new An Introduction for Young and Old Europe compilation. Tonight's their first of two NYC shows on this tour.
Startalk Live! @ Apollo Theatre
Neil deGrasse Tyson brings his popular space-themed radio show/podcast to the Apollo with cohost Eugene Mirman and "special guests."

James Murphy at CBGB Fest 2013 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
LCD Soundsystem mastermind James Murphy hasn't let the dissolution of his old band slow him down. He's hitting Brooklyn's Output on December 11 with frequent collaborator Tim Sweeney to DJ the club's weekly INPUT party. Tickets are on sale.
James Murphy has been a busy guy in the past few months, drumming for the recently-reunited Dungbeetle, starring in Arcade Fire's recent horror flick, DJing a Star Trek event and turning tennis data into music.
Other recently-announced Output DJ sets include Chromeo on 12/30 (tickets), DJ Koze and many more on New Year's Eve (tickets), and Bonobo on 2/5 (tickets). James Blake's DJ set at Output is this Wednesday (12/3) and tickets are still available.

Helsinki has some nice architecture...
After spending three days shooting portraits and other SoundWave tent activities for us at Lollapalooza in Chicago, BrooklynVegan photographer Dominick Mastrangelo took off to Finland for this year's Flow Festival. Keep checking back for his coverage from the fest throughout the weekend, starting now...
With Lollapalooza in the books for another year, this weekend's summer festivals look west to San Francisco for Outside Lands. And they also look east, way east, across the pond to the Scandinavian and Nordic countries whom are all holding their own festivals. Norway's Oya Festival is up and running while Sweden's Way Out West and Flow Festival in Finland take place Friday through Sunday. At the time of this writing, I'm 31,000 feet over Iceland and bound for the beautiful seaport city of Helsinki for Flow. The lineup is a healthy mix of heavy hitters, indie-popular bands as well as Finnish talent.
Last week's Lollapalooza headliners, Skrillex and OutKast, are headlining on Friday (8/8) and Sunday (8/10)respectively. The National, whose seemingly endless tour in support of last year's Trouble Will Find Me, roll in to town after playing Oya and Way Out West to headline on Saturday.
In addition to the headliners, the fest also features Röyksopp & Robyn, Polica, Little Dragon, Marissa Nadler, The Horrors, Darkside, Bill Callahan and Janelle Monae are also performing. And a handful of artists who performed at Pitchfork a few weeks ago will be making their way to Helsinki as well including Slowdive, Real Estate and Neneh Cherry.
Flow also gives a nod toward festivals like SXSW and CMJ with a host of talks on tech and music as well as a screening over 40 short films. The National will also feature on the film side with a screening of the documentary Mistaken For Strangers.
Update: Being seven hours ahead of New York, I've been out and about in Helsinki today. Posters for Flow are everywhere, the weather was gorgeous and I spent most of my afternoon out on Suomenlinna, a fortress built on six islands in the Gulf of Finland. (That beautiful weather disappeared in less than an hour as it's presently pouring outside.) Some photos from my afternoon jaunt, plus the full Flow lineup, below...

Bonobo / Cibo Matto at Central Park Summerstage - 7/13/14
We just mentioned that Odesza played Central Park Summerstage yesterday (7/13) opening for Bonobo and Cibo Matto, and we've now got a set of pictures of the latter two. For the officially back-in-action Cibo Matto, it was their second show of the weekend after playing Warm Up at MoMA PS1 a day earlier. Bonobo will be back in NYC for Electric Zoo this August.
Summerstage shows continue with a Pete Seeger tribute (7/12), Dr. John & Hurray for the Riff Raff (8/2), Blood Orange (8/16) and more.
More pictures from yesterday's show below...
Odesza at Central Park Summerstage - 7/13/14 (via @thatlostsailor)
Electronic duo Odesza just wrapped up their short run with Bonobo at Central Park Summerstage with Cibo Matto yesterday (7/13) (anyone go? how was it?), and they've now added a bunch of headlining dates into the fall including two more stops in NYC. They're continuing to headline increasingly larger venues, and this time around will play Bowery Ballroom on October 2 and Music Hall of Williamsburg on October 3. Both shows are with Hayden James and Ambassadeurs. Tickets for those shows go on sale Friday (7/18) at noon with an AmEx presale starting Wednesday (7/16) at noon.
All dates are listed, with a video, below...
Bonobo sold out Terminal 5 in 2013 (more by Adela Laconte)
The mostly-EDM electronic music festival Electric Zoo (not to be confused with Electric Daisy Carnival which just happened) announced the initial lineup earlier this month, and have now announced a ton more artists who are playing their Labor Day weekend NYC festival on Randall's Island (tip: avoid at all costs). Check out who they announced, by day and stage, below.
New on the lineup is DJ set by Bonobo whose growing tour also includes Glastonbury, The Hudson Project fest, a DJ set tour with FaltyDL, and a headlining live show at Central Park Summerstage on July 13 (free). All dates are listed below.
His set at E Zoo is at the least unbearable stage announced so far, the Riverside stage on Friday (8/29) which also includes Gesaffelstein (DJ), Jamie xx, Gorgon City, Tensnake and more.
The Summerstage show is with Bonobo's July tourmate Odesza, as well as Cibo Matto who will play Warm Up at MoMA PS1 one day earlier. Those are Cibo Matto's only two U.S. shows at the moment. They recently played in Brooklyn Bridge Park. All of their international dates are listed below.
Last we talked about FaltyDL, we had a preview of a new track off a new album. It was only a clip and not great quality though. That full song and album details have since been released, and you can listen to that song with those details below.
All dates, the FaltyDL song, the Electric Zoo lineup and more, below...
Recently in a NYC subway, British artist Chris Shen filmed a member of local dance group W.A.F.F.L.E. doing their thing in the middle of a moving Q train. Video of that has surfaced online and can be watched below without fear of getting accidentally kicked in the face. The song they're dancing to is actually an unreleased track by NYC producer FaltyDL (who you can spot watching them on the right by the door). Check it out below.
Meanwhile, FaltyDL also has a number of international dates coming up as well as a North American tour with Bonobo in September. Unfortunately no NYC shows scheduled for now, but it shouldn't be too long before he plays his hometown again. All dates are listed, with that subway video, below...

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. The 2014 edition goes down June 27 - 29 in Pilton, UK and the lineup was just announced. 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.
Fun Fun Fun Fest 2012 (more by Keith Marlowe)

As mentioned, UK producer Bonobo is releasing his new album, North Borders, on April 1 via Ninja Tune and supporting it with a tour. That tour comes to NYC for a previously mentioned show at Webster Hall on April 12.

Tickets for the new show go on sale Friday, March 29 at noon with an AmEx presale starting Wednesday (3/27) at noon. No word on openers for that one yet but Shigeto and Nickodemus open at Webster Hall.

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. All three of those artists will be returning this weekend for another show at 285 Kent on Sunday (9/23) with Visionist and a "surprise special guest." 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.
As for LA producer Total Freedom (aka Ashland Mines), who opened on tour for Gang Gang Dance last year, he'll be landing in Brooklyn a bit earlier for a warehouse party at 110 Troutman TONIGHT (9/21) with $hayne and Rizzla. The flier for tonight's show is below.
Meanwhile, J-Cush will also be at 285 Kent on Saturday (9/22) for the previously mentioned Sasha Go Hard show. That bill also includes DJ Manny, Cedaa, and Durban. $5 at the door before 1 AM. That will be Sasha's second NYC show of this week, having played Santos with LE1F last night (9/20). How was that show? Sasha loved it.
If dancing into the wee hours of the night is your thing, those three shows are only two of the many dance options in NYC this weekend. Head below to see more...
As mentioned, Teengirl Fantasy's new album, Tracer, was released this week (stream it) -- maybe you saw them at East River Park on Monday -- and the band will play a release party on Thursday (8/23) aboard the Rocks Off Concert Cruise with their True Panther labelmates Lemonade, DJ Mike Q and Massacooramaan along for the ride. Since we last spoke, Kelela, who sings lead vocals on TF's killer single, "EFX", has been added to the bill. Tickets are still available but if you'd like to go for free, we have a few pairs to give away.
While we're on the subject of boats, Big Freedia will shake things up on a Rocks Off Cruise as well on August 29 and, as mentioned previously, LE1f (who recently played Glasslands and PS1 Warm-up) has just been added to the bill. Tickets are still available and we have pairs to give away as well.
Both those shows are aboard The Harbor Lights which departs from East 23rd / FDR. Details on how to enter for both Rocks Off shows are below but please note these shows are 21+. We're also giving away tickets to the Teengirl Fantasy show on Facebook.
Other interesting Rocks Off shows coming up include '90s-era glam rockers Spacehog with Endless Boogie (who play Summerscreen tonight [8/22] with Daniel Higgs and Highlife) aboard The Jewel on Saturday 8/25 (tix); and Riverboat Gamblers, Cobra Skulls, and Fresh Kills aboard The Jewel on October 13 (tix).
As previously mentioned, Lagwagon plays a Fat Wreck Chords Rocks Off Cruise on October 20 with Dead to Me and others (tickets). Bonobo and Gibby Hanes also DJ a Rocks Off cruise on September 21 (tickets).
Contest details and a list of all Teengirl Fantasy dates are below...

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.
