femmes

Alt rock veterans Violent Femmes have stayed active on the live circuit pretty much since the '80s, but haven't released new music since their 2008 cover of Gnarls Barkley's "Crazy" or a new record of original material since 2000's Freak Magnet. That will change on Record Store Day (April 18) when they'll release the Happy New Year EP featuring four new songs, one of which, "Love Love Love Love Love" (penned by Jake Brebes), you can listen to (via Rolling Stone) below.

Violent Femmes will spend most of this summer on tour with Barenaked Ladies on their "Last Summer on Earth 2015" tour, including a stop in NYC at JBL Live at Pier 97 on July 1. Men At Work's Colin Hay plays that show as well and tickets are on sale.

All tour dates are listed, along with the new song stream, below...

Walter Schreifels & the Dead Heavens, Gates, Twin Strike, Descender @ Saint Vitus

Jeffrey Lewis, Diane Cluck, Kid In The Attic @ Trans-Pecos

George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic @ BB King's
The legendary George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic pushed the boundaries of rock, soul, funk and psychedelia on their classic early '70s albums, and they're still at it. Released late 2014, First Ya Gotta Shake the Gate was the first Funkadelic record in in six years.

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

Emmy the Great, Stranger Cat, Aimee Debeer, Will Sheff (DJ Set) @ Baby's All Right
Once known for delicate, emotionally bare folk, Emmy the Great signed to Bella Union and, on her new EP, now has a more lush sound in line with the label's roster (Fleet Foxes, Beach House). She's always been a real charmer live, which we don't imagine has changed. Okkervil River's Will Sheff, meanwhile, DJs in the front room.

Dave Chappelle @ Gramercy Theatre (late show)
After a lengthy vacation from the spotlight, one of our sharpest comic minds returned to the stage a couple years ago. It's good to have him back. Tonight's the last of his Gramercy Theatre run, with 7 PM and 10 PM shows.

Gingerlys, Melt, Leave the Planet, Wild Pink @ Palisades
Tonight's your last chance to catch UK dreampop duo Leave the Planet (worth heading out in the cold for if you like the etherial/indiepop side of shoegaze) and are well pared with locals Gingerlys and Melt.

Night Train @ Littlefield
Phoebe Robinson and The Daily Shows's Jessica Williams (who host UCB's Blaria LIVE!) fill in for Wyatt Cenac tonight, with guests Matteo Lane, Jim Tews, Bryan Babylon, Liza Treyger, and Michelle Billoon.

Colin Hay @ City Winery
Who can it be now? It's former Men at Work singer Colin Hay, who begins his three-night City Winery residency this evening.

Theophilus London, Doja Cat, Father @ Bowery Ballroom
With a unique sense of style and a new album executive produced by Kanye West, Theophilus London puts a new wave spin on R&B. Sold out.

Aziz

Hey guys. TGIF right? It has come to my attention that the comedy line up for the 11th annual Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival has dropped and boy is it something (awesome). Folks attending the comedy portion of the fest are sure to get a Boner-oo, that's for sure. The indoor and air-conditioned Bonnaroo Comedy Theatre will feature appearances by Aziz Ansari, Steven Wright, Marc Maron, Brian Posehn, Reggie Watts, Judah Freidlander, Rhys Darby, Colin Hay, Garfunkle & Oats, Amy Schumer, Pete Holmes, Rory Scovel, Mike O' Connell, Ali Wong, and Kyle Kinane. Holy. Cheezus. Read that list again. Digest. Read it again. Digest some more. There is so much goodness in that list it almost makes me sad that I don't have the $$$ or the strength to go to Bonnaroo.

Former staple of the NYC comedy scene Aziz Ansari has been on a relentless and neck-breakingly fast rise to super-stardom and sells out some of the countries largest theaters. I love him ever so much and he is a whopper of an asset to the line-up. And in case you didn't know, Aziz followed in the footsteps of comedy pioneer Louis CK by offering a download of his special Dangerously Delicious for a measly $5. Meanwhile catch Aziz on tour and at the Bonnaroo-related Googa Mooga thing happening in Brooklyn.

Marc Maron? Awesome. A living legend. Phenomenal stand-up pro and host of one of the best podcasts in this stinking, rotten world: WTF. You can also catch him live in New Brunswick four times in April.

Steven Wright is yet another living legend of stand-up. He's been in the biz since 1979 and his style and delivery has given birth to some of the best bits and one-liners in the history of stand-up (here's an exhaustive list). He bridges a seriously important gap between the current alt/indie/whateverthefuckyoucallit-comedy scene and the old school.

BRIAN POSEHN. Dude. BRIAN POSEHN!

Y'all even get a dose of Men At Work front-man Colin Hay who will play songs and share hilarious stories. I actually have two friends who shared drum duties with Hay on a recent tour and I got to have dinner with the guy. The dude's got some ridiculous stories and, man, can he tell 'em. You can also catch him in NYC at Town Hall on April 27th.

And Reggie Watts! A man who just announced a huge tour that includes a headlining gig at the rather large Webster Hall.

And Pete Holmes! Didn't I just get through telling you that Pete is awesome and even has a show coming up in NYC that you should not under any circumstances miss? Yes, I did.

Anyhow, this is one line-up I'd sure pitch a tent to see and you should take time out of your noodle-dancing schedule to check some or all of it out. Have fun!

A bunch of other dates are listed below...
