Ceremony at Warsaw in 2012 (more by Joe McCabe)
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Plaid @ LPR
In UK electronic duo Plaid's 20+ year career, they've collaborated with/remixed Bjork, Goldfrapp, Unkle, Portishead, and many more. Tonight the Warp-signed duo return to LPR.
Wilsen, Icewater, Jennah Bell, Kennan O'Meara @ Baby's All Right
It's a busy night at Baby's, with three separate shows. The first features two bands specializing in etheral pop: Wilsen and Icewater.
Yonatan Gat, Mandingo Ambassadors @ Baby's All Right
Then at 10 PM it's Show #2 with Monotonix's Yonatan Gat...
Celeste, Starchild @ Baby's All Right
...and then late night (midnight doors) it's Starchild who has toured as a singer with Blood Orange and Solange.
Ceremony, Nothing, Iron Lung, Bad Side @ Brooklyn Night Bazaar
There's a killer (and free!) show at Brooklyn Night Bazaar tonight with the wild PV-turned-garage-punks Ceremony, heavy shoegazers Nothing, powerviolence duo Iron Lung, and Philly hardcore band Bad Side.
Matthew Sweet, Tommy Keene @ City Winery
It's a double-dose of jangly power-pop and keen songwriting chops. Matthew Sweet, with his '90s hit "Girlfriend," is the better known of the two, but in certain circles Tommy Keene is held in very high regard.
The Sheiks, Iyez, The Chickenhawks, Speedo @ Death by Audio
Memphis garage rockers The Sheiks recently recorded a new 7" with Jack Oblivian, and their singer also plays in Ex Cult.
Bill Nye (The Science Guy) @ Irving Plaza
A PBS kids TV superstar in the '90s, Bill has seen a resurgence lately (we could use more science in the world) and will be doing three sold-out nights at Irving Plaza, this is the first.
Omar S, Luke Hess, OG Ignitt, Turtle Bugg @ Output
While much of the deep house world continues to move closer to pop, Omar S heads in the other direction, making more stylistically underground material, still of course with masterful production.
Speculator, Cool World, Advaeta, Jerry Paper, Sunflower Bean @ Palisades
Low fi LA band Speculator headline tonight's Palisades lineup; get there early to catchy the warmly psychedelic pop of Sunflower Bean.
CYMBALS, Ume, Midnight High, The Cosmonauts, Sideways Revolt, David Baron @ Pianos
UK band CYMBALS make dancerock not too far off from Hot Chip and they were good when we caught them back in March. Tonight's show is with Austin power trio Ume. One note: the Cosmonauts on this show are NOT the California psych band signed to Burger.
Frankie Cosmos, Infinity Shred, Chumped, Chappo, Field Mouse, Dead Stars, Shark?, Marvin Berry and The New Sound, Gunfight, Michael Jordyn and Greg, The Teen Age, Happy Lives, ONWE, Big Neck Police, Huge Pupils, Retail, Scherzo, Cal Fish @ Radio Bushwick (Gigawatts Festival)
The four-day Gigawatts Festival started yesterday but kicks into high gear tonight with a huge line-up of bands. We like Field Mouse, Dead Stars, Frankie Cosmos, The Teen Age and Shark? in particular.
OOIOO, Lichens, Ryan Sawyer @ Rough Trade
Led by Yoshimi of Boredoms, OOIOO have been around since the '90s, making highly-rhythmic, experimental music with each new album rarely sounding like its predecessor. The band released Gamel last year in Japan (their first since 2009) which is based around the ancient instrument, the gamelan, and is said to be the most representative of the band's live sound.
I Am The Avalanche, Somos, Rust Belt Lights @ Saint Vitus
I Am The Avalanche headline this sold out show, and if you dig them, we recommend getting there early for Somos too. Their punk/indie mix should fit the bill well.
Calvin Love, Las Rosas @ South Street Seaport
The Seaport Music Festival today brings Edmonton's synthy/twangy Calvin Love for an early evening show. If you've never caught Brooklyn's garagey Las Rosas, here's a good chance to do so (they're worth seeing). FREE, music starts at 7 PM.
Flume, Sweater Beats, Goldlink @ Terminal 5
Australian producer Flume saw a HUGE bump in his career recently, partially thanks to a Lorde remix. Tonight's his third of three sold out Terminal 5 shows this week, and it's worth showing up on time for rapper Godlink.
Gogol Bordello, Man Man @ The Space at Westbury
The always-wild gypsy punks Gogol Bordello don't hit NYC on their current tour, but they'll be nearby for three area shows, this being the first. The eccentric Man Man will be a good fit too.
Matthew Dear, Trus'me, Ryan Elliot, Will Calcutt, Jakub Alexander @ Verboten
Matthew Dear is a maker of both heady electronic music and poppier stuff too. Given the lineup and location, we have a feeling he'll be focusing on the former tonight.
Netherlands, D'nt, Max Low & the Electric Lights, Flesh @ Grand Victory
Timo Ellis fronts this excellent synth-fueled heavy punk band. Embrace your squelchy side at their show tonight.
Mortals, Godmaker, Mammal @ The Acheron
Sludgy chuggers Mortals recently dropped their sophomore LP on their new label home of Relapse and it's a good one. They celebrate the record in their hometown tonight.
For all of tonight's shows, and tomorrow's, check out our NYC concert calendar.

New York trio Old Monk are ready to release their sophomore album, Posing As Love, via Eenie Meenie. Like their 2012 debut the band take catchy indie rock and filter it through a decidedly prog/math sensibility. It equates to guitar pop that is capable of odd rhythms and hairpin time changes, without any excess -- not a single song on the album breaks the four-minute mark. The album is out next week (6/10, pre-order yours) but you can listen to the whole thing now -- an advance stream is premiering in this post. The band has also created a lyrics site with little tidbits about the references in the song, pretty cool.
Old Monk will celebrate the Posing as Love's release June 14 at Matchless as part of Northside Festival. Clouder, Miniboone, Haybaby, The Meaning of Life, and The Planes are also on the bill. The band will also play Brooklyn's The Flat on July 11 (other bands TBA), the kickoff to Old Monk's summer tour. All dates are listed, with the album stream, below...

Low Fat Getting High at Cake Shop earlier this month (more by Chris Gersbeck)
Brooklyn punks Low Fat Getting High have been playing raucous local shows for some time now, and as mentioned, they're finally laying down that intensity for a new EP, which is called Bad Yoga, and has just been officially announced. The EP will be out on July 18 via Dead Broke/Money Fire Records. It kicks off with three tracks of menacing, breakneck-speed punk, and culminates in a fourth track of Bleach-style noise and sludge. The whole thing is just over ten minutes and it's a real ripper so keep an eye out for it. You can stream the opening track, "Better Better Worse," along with the artwork and tracklist below.
Low Fat Getting High have a ton of upcoming shows as usual, including a previously discussed Gimme Tinnitus-presented show TONIGHT (5/22) at Big Snow with another solid local punk band, Big Ups, CYHSY-related Radical Dads (for whom the show is a record release party), and Miniboone. $7 at the door gets you into tonight's show. Doors are at 8 PM. All ages. Show flyer below.
After that, they've got a bunch of other local dates, including a Converse Rubber Tracks show on June 12; Silent Barn on June 14 with another great local punk band, Sleepies, noise rockers Eula, indie rockers Shark?, sludgy psych rockers Psychic Blood and others; a release party for the new EP on July 18 at Shea Stadium with Big Ups, Vulture Shit, and Flagland (who play with Butter the Children and Ovlov soon); and even more local dates, all of which are listed below.
In related news, as mentioned, Big Ups and Psychic Blood also play a Northside show with Nu Sensae and Destruction Unit.
All LFGH dates are listed, along with the song stream and album info, below...
As mentioned, White Fence's new album, Cyclops Reap, is out this week on John Dwyer's Castle Face label. Tim Presley doesn't seem to be running out of songs and this is another quality batch of paisley-scented psychedelia. You can stream "To The Boy I Jumped In The Hemlock Alley" below and hear the whole record over at Pitchfork.
White Fence will be in Brooklyn for the Northside Festival in June, playing two shows: the Panache showcase at Brooklyn Bowl on June 13 and then a late show at Knitting Factory on June 14. Tickets to the Knitting Factory show are on sale now; no word on Brooklyn Bowl tickets just yet.
The whole Panache showcase line-up is still forthcoming but we do know its being headlined by Mac DeMarco and we have updated dates for him below as well.
These are just a couple of the additions to the 2013 Northside line-up that includes that free Walkmen show in McCarren Park. Other new additions, Kylesa, Torche, Sonny & the Sunsets, Nü Sensae, Kisses, The Luyas and more. Northside line-up as it stands now is below.
