Bo Ningen @ Rough Trade last week (via @brooklynvegan instagram)
Bo Ningen
William Onyeabor
IMAGE

You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights from what is a very strong night...

Bo Ningen, Yvette @ Studio at Webster Hall
How to describe London-via-Japan band Bo Ningen in five words? "What the hell was that!" (That's a positive.) This doom/shoegaze/prog/psych/punk quartet feature insane playing, jumps from the drumkit, and flying hair that at times seems to be a special effect. Just go see them, it'll all make sense. Maybe. Local duo Yvette, who open the show, are great too.

Atomic Bomb - The Music of William Onyeabor @ BAM Howard Gilman Opera House
David Byrne, Hot Chip's Alexis Taylor, Dev of Blood Orange, Money Mark, Sinkane, Pat Mahoney (LCD Soundsystem) pay tribute to Nigerian synth-funk great William Onyeabor over two nights, this being the first. Part of the Red Bull Music Academy, this has potential to be very, very cool.

Chrome Sparks, Infinity Shred @ Baby's All Right
Chillwave survivor Chrome Sparks (aka Ann Arbor, MA Jeremy Malvin) returned with a new EP, Goddess, out this week. You can stream a track below. Tonight's the record release show with support from 8-bit warriors Infinity Shred (formerly Starscream).

CHVRCHES, The Range @ Terminal 5
Who'd have thought a year ago that Scottish synthpop band CHVRCHES would get so big? Tonight's their first of three sold-out shows at Terminal 5.

Connan Mockasin, Kirin J Callinan @ Music Hall Of Williamsburg
Two eccentric performers from the other side of the globe are teaming up for what should be an interesting tour. Things could get weird...and fun.

Frances Cone @ Rough Trade
While within the singer-songwriter mise-en-scène, Cone's got a distinctive voice and way with melody, and her recordings have an smart, understated charm. She plays tonight supporting her just-released self-titled EP.

Rodrigo y Gabriela, Zach Heckendorf @ Beacon Theatre
Mexican acoustic guitar duo Rodrigo y Gabriela have a new album, 9 Dead Alive, and are currently on tour in support of it. Tonight's the second of three nights at Beacon Theatre.

Stardeath and White Dwarfs @ Mercury Lounge
They're from Oklahoma, they're wildly psychedelic and their singer's last name is Coyne. But it's not the Flaming Lips (though they're related). If you like the Lips, they're worth checking out.

Megafaun, Grandma Sparrow @ Baby's All Right
Nick Sanborn has been getting more attention for his electronic act Sylvan Esso lately, but his other group, psych-folk combo Megafaun, are still at it. The band's drummer, Joe Westerlund, is opening the show as Grandma Sparrow. They are promising special guests, which could end up being very special indeed.

AJ Davila, Plastic Pinks, EX-Humans, Gunfight @ Cake Shop
While best known for fronting Puerto Rico's party-friendly garage rockers Dávila 666, front AJ has a new solo album that goes in glammier directions. This show -- which has a stacked garage punk lineup -- should be a wild one.

New Young Pony Club
IMAGE

New Young Pony Club, DWNTWN @ Glasslands
It's been a while since NYPC's "Ice Cream" made waves, but the band are back with a new album that doesn't futz with the punk-funk formula too much, and this is their first NYC show in ages. Sold out.

Clark, Octo Octa, ITAL @ Glasslands
UK producer Clark brings his new Phosphor live show to NYC with support from 100% Silk-signed deep house producer Octo Octa and locals Ital. Expect this party to go laaaaate.

BANG, THe Golden Grass, Occultation @ Saint Vitus Bar
'70s-era Philadelphian hard rockers BANG didn't last very long in their initial run but their three albums have achieved cult status. Back together 40 years later, tonight will be their first-ever show in NYC.

Little Barrie @ Knitting Factory
Groovy, psych-leaning UK trio Little Barrie worked with producer Edwyn Collins on their new album, Shadow, which is has a nice crunchy, retro vibe. They're fun live.

Now People, Sonic Avenues, Steve Adamyk Band, Shellshag @ Shea Stadium
This is a record release show for Atlanta punks Now People's new album, Love, Sex, Death & the Weather, but also features two Canadian bands -- Montreal's Sonic Avenue and Ottowa's Steve Adamyk Band -- both of whom fall in the nasally-pop-punk-powerpop mode.

Suzanne Vega, Air Hest @ The Bell House
A singer-songwriter for over 30 years (best known for "Tom's Diner"), Vega just released her new album, Tales From the Realm of the Queen of Pentacles where she samples 50 Cent on one track, believe it or not.

Ray Lamontagne @ Town Hall
With this just released album, Supernova, Ray adds a welcome dose of psychedelia to his folk formula. He'll be playing the album in full tonight which is his second of two shows at Town Hall.

Vinnie Paz w/ Army of the Pharaohs @ Irving Plaza
It's been four years since Vinnie Paz released Season Of The Assassin and he's finally back with Army of Pharaohs' new one, In Death Reborn, which as usual is steeped in late-'80s/early-'90s vibes.

Gina Harlow & The Cutthroats @ Hank's Saloon
Gina Harlow & The Cutthroats may not have gotten as popular as some of their other '70s NYC punk pals, but their material lives up as well as many of them. Catch them in their hometown tonight.

Nuclear Santa Claust, Pampers, Wet Blood, FLYKYLZ @ Lulu's
It's a great double bill of local punk tonight from the Ramones-y Nuclear Santa Claust and the arty Pampers.

Hysterics, Exit Order, New Crime, Sorrows @ 538 Johnson
Olympia punks Hysterics are in town for their first of two NYC shows this weekend at 538 Johnson tonight. Their sound recalls classic hardcore (think early Black Flag) but sounds totally in the now. Exit Order's highly emotive and intense punk is worth catching too.

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

The Men @ MHOW, Novemeber '13 (more by Ebru Yildiz)
The Men

Seoul @ Pop Montreal 2013 (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)
Seoul

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

The Men, Ukiah Drag @ Bowery Ballroom
The Men's prolific album-a-year schedule and ever-changing sound that has shifted from dark sludge punk to Replacements-y indie rock to Crazy Horse style jams leaves them with a ton of variety to throw into their raucous sets. If you're going, don't miss the western-tinged psych punks The Ukiah Drag, who open.

The Lawrence Arms, The Copyrights, Elway @ Gramercy Theatre
The Lawrence ended an 8-year gap between albums with this year's Metropole, and for a band who's been away from releasing music for so long, it's surprisingly one of their best records.

CTZNSHP, Adult Dude, Longarms @ Spike Hill
Local rockers Adult Dude make a great mix of Dinosaur Jr-style rock and Superchunk-style punk, and are worth showing up to this one for.

Joan As Police Woman @ Union Pool
Joan as Policewoman's new album, The Classic, finds her in classic (and classy) R&B mode with some of her most ebullient songs yet. Tonight's show is sold out but you can catch her at Rough Trade in May too.

Rush Midnight, Seoul, Sea Oleena, Daniel Klag @ Cake Shop
Montreal band Seoul make airy, crystaline pop that's funky and soulful in an '80s kind of way. This is their second of two NYC shows this week with fellow MTL band Sea Oleena.

Limited, Life Size Maps, Limited, Beiju, Lazyeyes, The Silver Palms @ Pianos
Tonight's the first of Life Size Maps' March Residency at Pianos. They've curated a good lineup to kick things off, with Lazyeyes and Limited (Alex from Big Troubles' synthpop solo project).

Eugene Mirman, Sarah Vowell, Ken Burns, Kurt Anderson, John Oliver, Questlove, Fred Armisen, Masha Gessen, Robyn Hitchcock @ Town Hall
New York nonprofit 826NYC is celebrating 10 years of providing students ages 6 - 18 with free literacy and writing programs with this event osted by Eugene Mirman and Sarah Vowell which pairs distinguished artists in conversation.

Snow Tha Product, Caskey, Chris Miles @ Santos Party House
Snow Tha Product has some pretty fun jams like "Cookie Cutter Bitches" and we have a pretty good feeling the crowd at Santos is gonna turn up to those jams tonight.

Scott Ian @ BB King's
As guitarist for thrash vets Anthrax, Scott Ian has amassed a lot of stories. Hear some of the more entertaining ones tonight as part of his spoken word tour.

Ghost Beach, Fascinator, Chrome Sparks @ Baby's All Right
Tonight's show is a release party for Ghost Beach's new album, Blonde. It's free with RSVP.

Big Terrific @ Cameo
Max Silvestri hosts the free weekly comedy show in the back of Williamsburg's Lovin' Cup. Tonight's talent includes Claudia Cogan, Joe Zimmerman, Rob Cantrell, and Sean Donnelly.

'Lost Highway' @ Nitehawk Cinema
David Lynch's classic 1997 film kicks off Nighthawk's series on composer Angelo Badalamenti. The screening will be preceeded by a set from Silent Draper Runners-related band A Place Both Wonderful and Strange.

On Friday (8/2), Williamsburg's funky ice cream shop OddFellows will debut its "Paracosm" flavor, which is rose-tinged raspberry ice cream.  (It's not vegan, but they do have sorbets and other vegan options.) The "Paracosm" ice cream was worked on together by Greene and the folks at OddFellows, which is run by Sam Mason who used to be pastry chef at WD-50 and was host of IFC's Dinner with the Band. You can get free samples of at OddFellows on Friday from 4 PM - 8 PM and the album will be playing continuously in the store.

XXYYXX at BV-SXSW 2013 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
XXYYXX

Young upstart producer XXYYXX will be touring this summer, and as discussed, that tour brings him to NYC for two shows this week. The first happens on Friday (7/12) at Music Hall of Williamsburg with Chrome Sparks (live), Fortune Howl, and DJ True Panther Sounds. That show is totally sold out, but if you weren't able to get tickets, we're giving away a pair. Details on how to enter to win are below.

The next day, XXYYXX will head to Long Island City for this week's Warm Up at MoMA PS1 (7/13) with MK, Ryan Hemsworth, Bondax, Gobby, and James K, making for a great all around bill. Tickets for this Saturday's Warm Up are still available.

UPDATE: Pete Swanson replaced Bondax on the lineup.

If you want to keep the fun going all the way to 4 AM on Saturday after Warm Up, head to Tribeca Grand Hotel, where Ryan Hemsworth and a few others will be DJing all night (tickets). Flyer below.

XXYYXX made the mix for this week's Warm Up, and it includes tracks by Ellen Allien, Floating Points, Holly Herndon, Lapalux, Thundercat, Janet Jackson ft. Nelly, and more, in addition to a new XXYYXX song. You can stream that mix and check out the full tracklist, via FADER, below.

XXYYXX was also just added as the opener to many dates on the previously discussed CHVRCHES tour, including the NYC show on September 22 at Terminal 5. Tickets for that show are still available. After the run with CHVRCHES ends, XXYYXX will head to Austin for the just-announced Fun Fun Fun Fest. All of his tour dates are listed below.

Also in XXYYXX's mix is a new track from his Relief in Abstract labelmate/fellow Orlando resident Fortune Howl (who also opens the MHOW show). The track, titled "Interzone Export," is off of his upcoming new album, Earthbound, which is due out on July 30 via Relief in Abstract. Unlike XXYYXX, who makes future garage dancefloor bangers, Fortune Howl focuses more on songwriting and this new track sees his post-Panda Bear vocals awash in glitchy folktronica and psychedelia. We've got the MP3 downloadable above, or you can also stream it below.

All dates are listed, along with all song streams, contest details, and flyer for the Ryan Hemsworth party, below...

Dauwd (photo by Jasmin Bell)
Dauwd

UK producer Dauwd spent a chunk of 2011 releasing delicate future garage singles and he's now set to release his debut EP, Heat Division, on March 12 via Ghostly (US) and Pictures (UK/EU). The first taste of that EP is its closing track, "And," which sees Dauwd moving more towards deep house and away from the future garage of his previous singles. It's got a harder edge than his earlier work, but pays just as much attention to detail. You can stream it, and check out the EP's album art and tracklist below.
