NYC indie pop band The Pains of Being Pure at Heart have been relatively quiet lately, but it's looking like that's about to change.

Julia Holter @ Pitchfork Fest 2013 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows. Here are some highlights...
Julia Holter, Nedelle Torrisi @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Julia Holter has been a-record-a-year since 2011's Tragedy (the album that began gaining her widespread recognition), and she never stops progressing. After last year's experimental bedroom pop opus, Ekstasis, she's moved further into the realm of contemporary classical and jazz styles on this year's Loud City Song, but is still highly melodic and lyrical. Catch her bringing her many sounds to Music Hall of Williamsburg tonight, and don't miss Nedelle Torrisi (formerly of Cryptacize, and fka Paradise), who also makes some solid art pop.
Iamamiwhoami, ITAL @ Brooklyn Masonic Temple
This Swedish art pop musician (real name Jonna Lee) has been getting some buzz over the last couple years for her sound that brought to mind artists like Bjork and The Knife. Tonight she makes her US debut, and ITAL should get everyone in a good mood before she goes on.
Hess Is More, SH101, Nightmare, Tippy Toes @ Cameo Gallery
A mighty live force capable of DFA-style dancerock, Hess is More are always worth checking out live. This will be your last chance to catch them as part of their September "Hessidency" and could easily be the best of the bunch, as a Hess-Tippy-Toes supergroup seems like a definite possibility.
Failures' Union, Chandeli'ers, Magnets @ Death By Audio
Failures' Union make alt-power pop like '90s radio rock and teen movie soundtracks never went out of style, with a bit of a country twist. Their new record drops this fall, but if you head to DbA tonight, you'll likely get to hear some of its tracks.
Lia Ices, My Body, Wilsen @ Glasslands
Lia Ices has been pretty quiet lately, but the Justin Vernon associate is back, playing this hometown show before she heads across the country for the Oakland stop of the Station to Station tour. If you like Lia's delicate style of folk, there's a good chance you'll like opener Wilsen too.
The xx, Polica @ Radio City Music Hall
The xx and Polica are two groups with a knack for tackling indie pop, R&B, and electronica all at once, so this matchup should make for a great double bill. Tonight they take on their second of two nights at Radio City Music Hall. Tickets are still available.
Local Natives, Wild Nothing @ Terminal 5
Local Natives released Hummingbird at the beginning of this year and their trajectory continues to climb, having played Governor's Ball back in June and tonight's the first of two nights' at T5.
The Lumps, The Moon Dudes, The Hairs @ Union Pool
Formerly of San Diego then San Francisco, Lumps now call NYC home. Though it's just one guy and a drum machine these days, Lumps still crank out nasally garage-pop as can be heard on their new album, Love, LUMPS. You can stream it below and tonight.
Lionel Richie @ Barclays Center
The former Commodore and all-around hitmaker will draw from 40 years worth of pop and R&B for tonight's big show at Barclays. Will it go All Night Long? Truly, that would be something.
Earth, Wind and Fire @ Beacon Theatre
Some people may be torn tonight between seeing Lionel Richie or going to see soul/disco/R&B titans Earth Wind & Fire at Beacon. And who wouldn't want to hear "September" in September?
MS MR, Wildcat! Wildcat!, Wet @ Webster Hall
With her sophomore album, Secondhand Rapture, MS MR push further into pure pop territory. Tonight's show is sold out.
Katatonia, Cult of Luna, Tesseract, Intronaut @ Irving Plaza
Long-running Swedish metal band Katatonia are headlining this package tour that also includes some pretty solid support acts, like the atmospheric Cult of Luna and the proggy Intronaut.
Chromeo, Snarkitecture @ Milk Studios
Sometimes cheese is not a bad thing. Electrofunk duo Chromeo, whose new album White Women is out soon, own their fromage. They'll be previewing that record tonight -- free but RSVP is closed.
Chick Corea @ Blue Note
Jazz fusion pianist Chick Corea, known for collaborations with Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock, and others, begins a 6-night run at The Blue Note tonight.
Graham Nash @ City Winery
The "Nash" in Crosby, Stills & Nash, one of the songwriters in '60s pop group The Hollies, and a reputable solo artist as well, Graham Nash begins his three-night run at City Winery tonight.
The Grandmothers of Invention @ Joe's Pub
This group comprises members of Frank Zappa's Mothers of Invention band, and tonight they'll perform the music of the late legend at Joe's Pub.
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.

Montreal/NYC masters of cheesy/fun synth funk, Chromeo, will return with their fourth album, White Women, at some point not too far off ("coming soon").

"If you aren't already at the Williamsbsurg Music Hall for the free Fool's Gold show, don't bother now. You will never get in. 500+ line up" - Brian Doc Holidae
A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs' label Fool's Gold turned five and they decided to celebrate, with the help of Converse Rubber Tracks, in a big but but small way on Saturday night at Music Hall of Williamsburg (a Brooklyn venue much smaller than ones A-Trak has charged people to see him in). The free, first-come, first served, during-CMJ show ended up going something this:
09:00 - Ryan HemsworthThose who got on line early experienced this...
10:00 - Nick Catchdubs
10:45 - Troy Ave (bringing out Chase N Cashe)
11:15 - World's Fair (bringing out Tanboyz + Flatbush Zombies)

"Main attraction of the night @araabmuzik @spinmagazine #cmj event CRAY!" - Amia Serrano
Chromeo @ DCTV Firehouse, 10/18/2012
It was a night for dancing not posing, but Chromeo's David "Dave 1" Macklovitch couldn't resist during the duo's DJ set at SPIN's CMJ party (brought to you by Red Diamond Wine, CABO Wabo®, Tito's Handmade Vodka, and JBL) on Wednesday night at the DCTV Firehouse in New York's Chinatown. So, just before theatrically dropping a beat and transitioning out of Moodymann's "Freeki Mutha F cker (All I Need Is U)," Dave 1, wearing his customary suit jacket, tight jeans, and hi-top poof of black curls, turned to the sidestage area and flashed his best glossy, flossy smile for a photographer, who was so tickled upon getting the shot that he ditched his camera soon thereafter to dance to a remix of the remix of Chief Keef's "I Don't Like." [SPIN]SPIN threw a CMJ party at DCTV Firehouse in Chinatown on Thursday (10/18) with DJ sets by Chromeo (who DJed a few other shows last week), Araabmuzik and MNDR. More pictures from the party are below.
"Witnessed dude fall from 3 stories into crowd @ #justice show. Anybody on the ground hurt? #hammerstein #NYC" - Mark Bellncula
Justice @ Hammerstein Ballroom - 10/21/12 (via Nick Wenck)
Justice brought their tour to NYC for a show at Hammerstein Ballroom last night (10/21) with Chromeo (DJ), one of several big shows happening in NYC the night after CMJ's conclusion. An anonymous source tells us that right before the encore, the members of Justice pointed towards the upper left balcony and a young fan, who "looked like he was tweaking out on something and seemed to think they were pointing directly," thrusted himself towards the stage so hard that he fell over the balcony, and after holding on for a few seconds he fell to the ground. Says the source, "The crazy thing is he immediately jumped up, threw his hat on and bolted from the venue. According to the venue staff and EMTs no one was severely hurt, but one person of the three who he landed on went to the hospital complaining of back pain."
Whoa. The show went on after that and video from it (balcony fall not included) is below.
Chromeo at Governors Ball 2012 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Myspace (which is attempting a comeback) is presenting a three-city DJ concert series which hits NYC, San Francisco, and LA. The NYC show happens on October 20 at Tribeca Grand Hotel with Chromeo and Questlove. Presumably both acts will be doing DJ sets. The show is free but RSVP is required.
For Chromeo, that show is one of three DJ sets in the NYC area they'll be doing this month, including one in Atlantic City the night before (10/19) the Tribeca Grand show, and opening for Justice at Hammerstein Ballroom the night after (10/21) (sold out).
For Questlove meanwhile, his usual DJ night at Brooklyn Bowl on Thursdays is cancelled this week.
A list of all dates and Chromeo's video for "When The Night Falls" below...

Green Day, who are working on new material this year (three albums to be exact), are playing an intimate (for them), but not this intimate, show in NYC at Irving Plaza on September 15 to celebrate the launch of Nokia Music. To get tickets, you have to "like" the Numero Uno Fan Facebook App presented by Nokia Music and AT&T and then click through to get all the details. The disclaimer reads: "Warning: Serious Green Day fans only."
