Boys Noize w/ Skrillex at Lollapalooza 2013 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Boys Noize

While the "Harlem Shake" meme has worn off, Baauer, the song's producer, is keeping at it. He recently dropped a new single, "Clang," which you can stream below. He's also going on a co-headlining tour with German party starter Boys Noize this fall. Before the tour fully starts though, the two DJs will hit NYC on Sunday, August 10 at Governors Island for an outdoor, all-day dance party that goes from 4 PM to midnight. Good openers on that show too, including Night Slugs' L-Vis 1990, a DJ set from rapper Le1f, one half of DJ Dodger Stadium, Samo Sound Boy, dance-rap partier and Boys Noize collaborator Spank Rock, and Pilo. Tickets for that show are on sale now, and include round-trip ferry transportation.

Dev Hynes w/ Solange at Bowery Ballroom (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Dev Hynes

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

Porches, Krill, Ovlov, Roomrunner, Pile (acoustic), Baked, Average Cock, Dead Wives, Big Ups, Gnarwhal, Grass is Green, Two Inch Astronaut, Bad History Month, Woozy @ Baby's All Right
One of the best labels in indie rock this year was Boston/Brooklyn label Exploding In Sound, who put out some great releases and also threw a number of memorable parties with sweaty fans losing their minds to band after band. To ring in the new year, EIS will do one more of those parties, and with a lineup like this, things could get crazy. Special guests (billed as "average cock") are promised too.

Patti Smith, Belle Ghoul @ Webster Hall
The Godmother of Punk still lives up to that title, delivering fantastic sets that span her almost-4-decade-long career which includes a number of stone cold classics. As usual, she's celebrating the end of the year in her hometown of NYC, and tonight's her second of two sold out Webster Hall shows.

Punch Brothers, The EarRegulars feat Tamar Korn @ Bowery Ballroom
Brooklyn bluegrass band Punch Brothers in the middle of their three-night lead-up to New Year's run at Bowery Ballroom. (Tonight being Night 2.) Tickets are still available.

The Felice Brothers, The Districts @ Brooklyn Bowl
In what's becoming an annual thing, Upstate NY folk rockers The Felice Brothers are wrapping up the year with a short Northeast tour that hits NYC tonight for what will surely be a festive evening. Tickets are still available.

Gayer (Dev Hynes + Samantha Urbani), Mndsgn, Lord Raja @ Trans Pecos
Dev Hynes just played a show with his girlfriend and Blood Orange cohort Samantha Urbani as Lightspeed Champion, and tonight's show at new Todd P venue Trans Pecos (aka old Silent Barn) finds the two under this new billing of Gayer. Who knows what this will be but it's probably worth checking out.

Gogol Bordello, Man Man @ Terminal 5
It wouldn't be New Year's in NYC without the high-energy, vodka-filled gypsy punk sets of Gogol Bordello. They're at Terminal 5 tonight and New Year's Eve, and weirdo rock band Man Man provides quality support.

Major Lazer, Boys Noize, GTA @ Pier 94
If anyone knows how to throw a party, it's Diplo, so tonight's Major Lazer show should be nothing short of a killer time. Plus, both openers aren't too bad at getting a crowd moving themselves.

Phish @ MSG
Love 'em or hate 'em, Phish's New Year's run at Madison Square Garden is always quite the event for jam fans, and it continues tonight, with one show a night leading up to New Year's Eve.

Antibalas @ SOB's
Brooklyn afrobeat band Antibalas are ringing in the new year with a two-night stand at SOB's. They do one show tonight and three different shows tomorrow, so there's plenty of chances to see them.

Alex Bleeker & The Freaks, Shorts @ Mercury Lounge
When Alex Bleeker isn't playing in Real Estate, he's making bluesier, more psychedelic music with his own band, Alex Bleeker & the Freaks.

Dying Fetus, Pyrexia, Car Bomb @ Saint Vitus
It's another NYC year-end show for Long Island's Pyrexia, and this time they're supporting the ignorantly technical slam-centric death metallers Dying Fetus.

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

For laughs, check out the NYC Comedy calendar too.

Modeselektor at Coachella 2012 (more by David Andrako)
Modeselektor

As mentioned, NYC electronic festival Electric Zoo is returning to the recently restored (after Governors Ball damage) Randall's Island from August 30 to September 1. Though much of the lineup is stuff you probably want to stay away from (like Benny Benassi, Tiesto, David Guetta, Steve Aoki, etc), there's also a handful of people worth seeing, including Four Tet, Moderat, Bondax, A-Trak, Diplo, Baauer, AraabMuzik, Skream, Cyril Hahn, RL Grime, Just Blaze, Joy Orbison, and Scuba. Tickets (3-day passes and single day passes) are on sale now. Full lineup at the festival's site.

There have also been a number of official afterparties announced. There's one at Williamsburg's new danceclub hot spot Output each night of the fest. The two biggest standouts are Modeselektor and Rudimental DJing Best Buy Theater on August 31 with Delta Heavy (tickets), and Chicago house vet Cajmere (who also plays Warm Up that weekend) at Cielo on August 30 (tickets).

Moderat (aka Modeselektor and Apparat) finally released their second album, Moderat II, this month, and you can stream the whole thing via a Spotify widget below.

For UK duo Bondax, Electric Zoo and Chicago's North Coast Festival (which a bunch of other Electric Zoo artists also play) are their only two North American gigs at the moment, after they recently cancelled their appearances at Warm Up and Camp Bisco, which they would have played in July. Check out their recent single, "Giving It All," below, or download it above.

The PMR-signed Cyril Hahn will also return to NYC when his tour with Ryan Hemsworth hits 88 Palace on October 5.

Diplo

Diplo released the "Express Yourself" 7" this month, the single for that track from his EP of the same name.

That's the cover art for the 7" above. Pick up a copy on green vinyl.

Diplo, Grimes, Skrillex (one of the greatest guitarists of all time), Tokimonsta, Pretty Lights, and others are set to head out on the Full Flex Express Tour, a tour of Canada on a train modeled after The Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin, and The Band's 1970 Festival Express tour.

Full Flex Express Tour

Electric Zoo

Giant and very-varied Labor Day Weekend electro festival Electric Zoo returns to Randall's Island on September 2-4 and just announced 14 more artists to its already big lineup which is split across four stages (times three days).

The fest this year features performances by big names like Moby (DJ set), Rusko, MSTRKRFT, Richie Hawtin as Plastikman, Chromeo, Boys Noize, Calvin Harris and Diplo. The lineup also includes smaller but familiar and exciting names like Daedelus, SebastiAn (Live), SBTRKT, Nicolas Jaar (Live), and many more. The whole thing is listed below.

SBTRKT meanwhile has dates coming up in July.

SebastiAn, who has had singles floating around for a few years now, and more recently a film score, finally released his first proper full length Total on May 30 via Ed Banger. The album is 22 songs of Daft Punk-esque aggressive French House and features vocal contributions from Mayer Hawthorne and M.I.A.. Check out a soundcloud stream of the M.I.A.-featured "C.T.F.O." (which stands for chill the fuck out) and the full tracklist also below.

More tour dates for Diplo, Chromeo and Rusko, along with the EZ lineup, and stuff, below...

MGMT / My Morning Jacket
Voodoo Festival 2010
Voodoo Festival 2010

"It's more than an average sweat-your-brains-out, suffer-in-the-mud music festival. It's the Voodoo Experience, and it went down at City Park this weekend in New Orleans.

Voodoo Fest, one of the world's largest Halloween parties, housed thousands of attendees who, for three days of musical bliss, watched some of the world's most notorious names -- including Muse, Ozzy Osbourne, MGMT and My Morning Jacket -- and donned costumes ranging from zombies to superheroes, fictional characters to condiments and anything and everything in-between." [The Daily Reveille]

MGMT probably had the most talked about costumes of the weekend. The band dressed up as the cartoon cast of Scooby Doo. More pictures and a bunch of videos from this past weekend's Halloween-themed New Orleans fest (not necessarily in order - a big mix of all three days), and MMJ's setlist (they covered Black Sabbath again), below...

The two electronic artists, who both just played Electric Zoo (and who both played different dates on the recent HARD tour), are criscrossing in NYC, but each are hitting the road for much larger separate tours in promotion of their latest LPs, Power and O.M.G.! respectively. Full tour dates for both are below.

Three weeks after Boys Noize/Rusko, look for Z-Trip to bring his cornucopia of beats to Webster Hall (11/19), his only East Coast date so far. Full dates are below, as well as a recent (and awesome) Marvin Gaye/2Pac blend by Z-Trip commissioned by Afeni Shakur.

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...
