The National at Sasquatch 2014 (more by Chris & Rae Graham)
National

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

The National, Phosphorescent @ Prospect Park Bandshell
The National have a very impressive run of killer indie rock records, and despite their often-somber sounds, they're far from a boring live band. Tonight they begin their three-night run at Prospect Park (this one and tomorrow's are sold out), and opening is indie folk crew Phosphorescent who make this a great double bill.

Sam Smith @ Apollo Theater
Sam Smith finally followed his big Disclosure collaboration "Latch" with his own album which is closer to Adele-style R&B/soul than Disclosure's dance pop.

Courtney Barnett, Benjamin Booker @ Bowery Ballroom
Australia's Courtney Barnett is a real charmer, spinning between-song stories as well as her clever, seemingly stream-of-concious lyrical style. She's no slouch on guitar either... and getting more popular by the second. Sold out

Cody Chesnutt @ City Winery
A charmer and more than a little eccentric R&B/soul singer plays City Winery tonight after his bigger Apollo Theatre show over the weekend. Hopefully we'll get some new songs -- it's been two years sinceLanding On A Hundred.

Meatbodies, Pampers, Las Rosas, White Rope @ Death by Audio
You maybe have seen Chad Ubovich play as part of Mikal Cronin's band last year, but he's got his own group, Meatbodies, too. You might not be suprised to learn Meatbodies make garagey psych rock that's not too dissimilar from Cronin or Ty Segall. They headline this show tonight, which is pretty killer all-around.

Kins, Ryley Walker, Salt Cathedral @ Glasslands
While very much a band, Australia/UK act Kins seem to draw inspiration from downtempo electronics for a expansive, atmospheric sound without ever dipping into anthemic "whoa oh" territory. It's also worth getting there on time for Ryley Walker, a highly talented acoustic guitarist who makes quality psych folk.

Everclear, Soul Asylum, Eve 6, Spacehog @ Irving Plaza
This year's edition of the Summerland tour is a cornucopia of Clinton-era MTV rock. So much for the afterglow, indeed.

Guy Blakeslee (of Entrance Band), Weyes Blood @ Mercury Lounge
Guy Blakeless of the Entrance Band just put out his first solo album in ten years, which among other things, highlights his great voice. Weyes Blood is another with a killer set of pipes, so be sure to show up for her too. Guy plays NYC again on Thursday at Rough Trade.

Polica, Reputante @ MHOW
Polica's mix of R&B, indie pop and a folkier sense of songwriting make for an eclectic mix that's always fun live thanks to Channy's dance moves and the double drummer attack.

The Antlers @ Rough Trade
The Antlers' new horn-filled album, Familiars, comes out today and it's more of the highly emotional, falsetto-tinged songwriting that's made up their previous records. They celebrate with this in-store which is free with purchase of a copy of the album.

Excel, Strife, Brain Slug, Manipulate @ Saint Vitus
Crossover thrash vets Excel just reissued their 1987 debut album, Split Image, and now the band who reunited in 2012 will continue to play shows. They'll be joined by the more hardcore-aligned Strife.

Ringo Starr & His All Star Band @ Beacon Theatre
Ringo Starr may not have the same epic stage show as the other surviving Beatle (he also hasn't written as many hits), but he'll still deliver plenty of the songs he sang lead for in that band. This is his first of two Beacon Theater shows this week, and he'll also be in NJ after.

Trash Talk, Cities Aviv, Left Brain @ Palisades (906 Broadway)
Anyone who's seen Trash Talk knows their sets are totally out of control, and that will likely be the case at this free Bushwick show which you had to RSVP for, but is still first come, first served. Bring earplugs, and maybe a helmet.

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

Courtney Barnett at Coachella 2014 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Courtney
Nothing (via)
Nothing

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

The Northside Festival
The Northside Festival's four-day takeover of North Brooklyn is in full swing today with basically every venue in Williamsburg, Greenpoint and Bushwick involved. There are lots of shows but we've highlighted our picks here -- noted by the "(Northside)" in the event name.

Andrew Jackson Jihad, Cheap Girls, Dogbreth @ LPR
Andrew Jackson Jihad make a quality mix of folk punk and anti-folk, while Cheap Girls are more akin to '90s alternative bands like the Smoking Popes or a punkier Gin Blossoms. Indie punks Dogbreth are worth showing up early for too.

Beirut, RatKing, Malang Jobarteh @ 50 Kent
It's been a few years since Beirut put out a new album, but a live show from the balkan-inspired indie band is always welcome, new music or not. Opening the show is local rap group Ratking and kora player Malang Jobarteh.

Cody ChesnuTT @ Apollo Theater
A charmer and more than a little eccentric R&B/soul singer plays one of NYC's most famous venues tonight. Hopefully we'll get some new songs -- it's been two years since Landing On A Hundred.

Lust For Youth, Pharmakon, Container, Croation Amor, Uniform @ Baby's All Right (Northside Festival)
Good late night (10 PM) bill with moody Copenhagen synth popsters Lust For Youth, NYC noise artist Pharmakon, electronic noisemaker Container, Loke Rahbek of LfY's ambient project Croatian Amor, and The Men/Drunkdriver-related duo Uniform.

Sharon Van Etten, Jana Hunter @ Bowery Ballroom
We still remember when Sharon played the upstairs at Pianos as part of one of our CMJ day parties, so we couldn't be more pleased that her career has really taken off. This is her last of three sold-out NYC shows this week.

Baths, American Royalty, Beacon @ Brooklyn Night Bazaar (Northside Festival)
Baths took an unexpected turn towards emotional songwriting on last year's Obsidian LP and this year's Ocean Death EP, while still keeping his electronic pop style intact.

Chumped, Benny The Jet Rodriguez, Adult Dude @ Cake Shop
Chumped and Adult Dude bring quality local punk to Cake Shop tonight to accompany LA's likeminded Benny The Jet Rodriguez who play their second NYC show of the weekend tonight.

CFCF, Aquarian, Gobby, Kuhrye-oo, Feral, Ian Isiah @ Cameo Gallery (Northside)
NYC's label UNO is known for great, forward thinking electronic music. Tonight they celebrate their UNOversary yet again with a great lineup all around, headlined by Montreal's CFCF.

Incan Abraham, Little Sur, Crush Distance @ Glasslands (Northside Festival)
Fans of "whoa-oh-oh" filled, anthemic indie rock should probably head here tonight for LA's Incan Abraham who's catchy songs are filled with those high-drama moments.

Mas Ysa, Torn Hawk, MTT @ Knitting Factory (Northside Festival)
NYC indie pop guy Mas Ysa teams up with buzzy nostalgic producer Torn Hawk at Knitting Factory tonight.

Clouder, Miniboone, Old Monk, Haybaby, The Meaning of Life, The Planes,traumahelikopter, The Party Faithful, Loose Buttons, Two Seconds to Midnight @ Matchless
There are bands all day at Greenpoint's Matchless. The day portion is free; the not-free (unless you have a badge) evening portion is a little meatier with sets from mathy, Pavement-y band Old Munt, and quality locals Haybaby and Miniboone.

Thee Oh Sees, The Blind Shake, King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard @ McCarren Park (Northside Festival)
Though it's a completely different line-up than we've seen before, John Dwyer doesn't half-ass things and we'll take any chance to see Thee Oh Sees we can. Plus it's free, really hard to complain about that. Also! The opening bands are really good too: Australia's King Gizzard, and Minneapolis animal-beat punks The Blind Shake. This will be fun.

Courtney Barnett, Benjamin Booker @ MHOW
Australia's Courtney Barnett is a real charmer, spinning between-song stories as well as her clever, seemingly stream-of-concious lyrical style. She's no slouch on guitar either... and getting more popular by the second. Sold out, but some Northside badges will be taken (no wristbands though).

Ozomatli (Ozokidz) @ Prospect Park Bandshell & Rough Trade
Los Angeles latin/rock/hip-hop fusion ensemble Ozmatli play a family-friendly Ozokids show as part of Celebrate Brooklyn! in the afternoon before their Rough Trade show with Raya Brass Band at Rough Trade tonight.

Aretha Franklin @ Radio City Music Hall (Blue Note Jazz Festival)
The Queen of Soul returns to Radio City for what will surely be another excellent hits-filled show. Her first of two nights this week.

Marissa Nadler, Pharmakon, Youth Code, Pyrrhon, Couch Slut @ Saint Vitus (Northside Festival)
Great and very diverse bill all around with the haunting dream folk of Marissa Nadler, the noise of Pharmakon, the EBM/industrial of Youth Code, the freakish tech-death metal of Pyrrhon, and sludgy local band Couch Slut.

AKUA, Starchild, Lydia Ainsworth, Solar Year @ Shea Stadium (Northside Festival)
MTL duo Solar Year offer an ethereal brand of electronic music is icy, with vocals that work like an instrument more than something where lyrics are important. With eerie projections, they're more interesting live than your average laptop act.

Grrrl Fest w/ Potty Mouth, Shellshag, Palehound, Fleabite & more @ Silent Barn
Grrrl Fest is a "benefit celebrating young women in the arts" with crafts, music, dancing, book sale, art sale, zine sale, t-shirt making, African beading, button making, zine workshop, glitter tattoos, hair braiding, tarot card reading, spoken word and much more. Some great bands lined up for this too including punky indie rockers Potty Mouth, local DIY regulars Shellshag, local newcomers Palehound, and a lot more.

Boytoy, Little Racer, The Teen Age, Bluffing, Weekender @ Grand Victory (Northside Festival)
Some really good Brooklyn pop on this Northside bill: Boytoy make spunky '90s-style poppy indie rock, as do Little Racer and The Teen Age too.

Nothing, Superheaven, UnWed @ The Studio at Webster Hall
Nothing are the shoegaze band you can mosh to, and for good reason -- their shows are high energy and unpredictable.

Summer Thunder w/ Joe Bataan, 178 Improvisation Product @ Union Pool
NYC latin soul legend Joe Bataan recorded one of the first rap records to chart ("Rap-O, Clap-O," watch the video below), had disco hits as well and has dabbled in just about every genre imaginable. Today he headlines this afternoon's free Summer Thunder show at Union Pool.

Teen Girl Scientist Monthly, traumahelikopter, Your Friend, Neighbors, Piers @ Space Ninety 8 Stage
Missed Eagulls when they opened for Titus the other night? Catch them for free as part of this outdoor stage lineup on Bedford Ave. this afternoon. Eagulls are on at 3:30 PM.

Ski Lodge, Literature, Lushes, My Teenage Stride, Chalk and Numbers @ Union Pool (Northside Festival)
For a jangly Saturday NOrthside option, Union Pool is hosting a solid lineup of indie pop, headlined by Ski Lodge who are currently working on their second album. Also on the bill are Philadelphia's Literature, whose excited brand of jangle has them bouncing off the walls, plus NYC indiepop vest My Teenage Stride, the vintage '60s pop sounds of Chalk & Numbers, and more.

Dead Milkmen, Rasputina @ Warsaw
Philadelphia wiseass legends The Dead Milkmen are still a lot of fun 30 years into their career. Just try not singing along to "Punk Rock Girl."

Notorious

The B.I.G.gest music licensing story last week was the release of Notorious, the film based on the life story of Brooklyn rapper Notorious B.I.G. As you may already know, a virtual unknown was cast to play Biggie. The film hit theaters Friday and so far has received mixed notorious reviews. Notorious contains a number of Biggie's music; the official soundtrack even contains three unreleased songs (listen to them here).

The movie ended up in fourth place on the holiday weekend box office list, grossing an estimated $24 million. According to Variety, Notorious had the best per-location average of the weekend with $14,652 earned (approx) at each of the 1,638 theaters screening the film. I personally didn't see it this weekend because I was too busy helping Paul Blart Mall Cop take top spot on the weekend draw.

Other Notable Licensing News:

Commuters in Liverpool Station were surprised last week with the spontaneous (yet meticulously calculated) filming of a T-mobile commercial. The spot started with music coming over the loudspeaker and igniting a few members of the crowd to begin dancing. As the songs change (there are eight of them), more dancers join in until the entire station is engulfed in the excitement. The spot was created then on air within 48 hours and was shown as an exclusive premier on BBC 4. The songs in the spot, in order, are: Lulu's "Shout", Yazz's "The Only Way Is Up", Pussycat Dolls' "Don't Cha", Viennese Waltz, Kool & the Gang's "Get Down On It", Rainbow's "Since You've Been Gone", Millie Small's "My Boy Lollipop", and Contours' "Do You Love Me". Watch the spot below.

Another spot out of the UK recently is this lyrically driven commercial for the Ford Ka appropriately using Soundtree's "Go Find It".

The Roots really like Cody Chesnutt; so much so they remade one of his songs ("The Seed") for their 2002 album and even had him play and sing on the record. Not sure if The Roots like Axe products, but the band and brand have mutual love for Chesnutt - his jam "Look Good In Leather" is the feature of a new claymation spot for the Lynx line. Check the spot below.

Continuing with the cool Euro commercials trend, Dutch snowboard gear company Protest uses a great Josh Ritter tune, "To The Dogs Or Whoever", in their new campaign. One interesting jump over to Protest's website finds some more interesting licensing: the brand hopes you will enjoy tunes by The Beastie Boys, N.W.A., The Kooks, and MGMT while you get your shop on. Watch the commercial below.

Lykke LiFox TV show Fringe is running a promo that features Lykke Li's "I'm Good, I'm Gone". Watch it below.

Animal Planet is stepping up its entertainment offerings with a new show called Jockeys. No, it does not have to do with undergarments; it will follow a group of riders and will debut next month on the channel. The promo steps up the cool factor a bit by including Kanye West (and Daft Punk's) "Stronger". Watch the promo below.
