Pity Sex

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

Buzzcocks, Doug Gillard @ Stone Pony
One of the OG UK punk bands, Buzzcocks had pop smarts from the get-go with a string of classic singles. Pete Shelley and Steve Diggle are still at it, having released The Way last year, that doesn't fiddle with their formula. Doug Gillard, who has played in Guided by Voices, Cobra Verde, Nada Surf and makes his own great guitar pop, opens..

Pity Sex, Foxes in Fiction, John Galm, Spirit of the Beehive @ Brooklyn Night Bazaar
Ann Arbor punkgazers Pity Sex headline this stacked free show that also includes the ambient Foxes In Fiction, former Snowing/Street Smart Cyclist vocalist John Galm, and Philly indie rockers Spirit of the Beehive.

The Juan Maclean (live), Delia Gonzalez (live), Midnight Magic (DJ set) @ Cameo Gallery
While they're mainstays on the DJ circuit, it's been a long time since The Juan Maclean actually played live. To get back into the swing, they're doing a six-night Brooklyn residency, starting tonight with three shows at Cameo then next week at Union Pool. Tonight's show is with fellow (but very different) DFA artist Delia Gonzalez.

Doldrums, Moon King @ Mercury Lounge
Airick Woodhead's new album as Doldrums is both poppier and dancier than anything he's done before, while remaining resolutely of odd. Moon King, which is fronted by Airick's brother Daniel, both open the show and play as a part of Doldrums live band. They're both exciting live bands, recommended.

Blind Idiot God, Insect Ark @ Saint Vitus
Experimental instrumental rock vets Blind Idiot put out releases on SST, Bill Laswell's label and John Zorn's label back in the late '80s and early '90s (all produced by Laswell except for one by Martin Bisi), and earlier this year they finally put out their first album in 23 years. It has them in fine form, as tonight's show likely will too.

Blitzen Trapper (performing Neil Young's "Harvest") @ City Winery (2 shows)
This weekend, Blitzen Trapper are releasing a live tribute to Neil Young's Harvest album, and today they're also playing it in full at two NYC shows.

Ava Luna, Nat Baldwin, Warehouse @ Baby's All Right
Ava Luna's sound -- part indie rock, part R&B, part cerebral thesis -- doesn't seem like it would work on paper but actually sounds pretty natural. Their brand new album (tonight's the release show), Infinite House, is the best thing they've done yet.

Brokeback, Holy Sons, Chris Brokaw @ Trans-Pecos
Doug McCombs of post-rock giants Tortoise and indie rock vets Eleventh Dream Day has also led the band Brokeback since the late '90s. They headline tonight, and it's a good show all around with Holy Sons, the project of Emil Amos (also of Om and Grails), and Codeine/Come guitarist Chris Brokaw (who's also playing in Brokeback tonight).

Spirit Family Reunion, Innove Gnawa Band, Morgan O'Kane @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Brooklyn's Spirit Family Reunion make trad-style folk inspired by old timey country and bluegrass. Catch them in their hometown tonight.

Jeff Beck, Tyler Bryant @ The Paramount
Guitar legend Jeff Beck (of The Yardbirds, The Jeff Beck Group and more) is in the midst of a multi-night NYC-area run with Jimmy Hall, who fronted the '70s southern rock band Wet Willie, on vocals.

Testament, Exodus, Shattered Sun @ Starland Ballroom
Two veterans of '80s thrash metal, Testament and Exodus, team up for this great double bill tonight, and Testament are promising a set that includes their first two albums played in full (1987's The Legacy and 1988's The New Order), as well as cuts from 1989's Practice What You Preach). They do it again on Long Island on Sunday.

Sadaf, Gobby, Sporting Life, Helmer, DJ Hungry Bodies @ Alphaville
Sadaf and Gobby hail from the same scene that brought us Arca and Mykki Blanco, so if you like them there's a good chance you'll enjoy tonight's show too. Also of note is Sporting Life, which includes a member of Ratking.

Tournament, KDH, Twin Strike @ Union Pool
Local punks Tournament put out the ripping, snotty new album Teenage Creature this week. Hear songs from that tonight.

Adrian Grody, Arthur Meyer, Alison Rich, Shellshag, Joe Pera, Lil Freckles, Conor O'Malley, and more @ Aviv
Tonight's new-ish Greenpoint venue Aviv's first-ever comedy show, and also includes a full set from local indie/punk band Shellshag.

Com Truise, Lord RAJA @ Verboten
The early show at Verboten tonight (7 PM) is headlined by '80s-inspired producer Com Truise.

Matthew Dear, Mike Dehnert, Kyle Hall, Dino G @ Verboten
This is Matthew Dear's "Subversions" party, which features "trippy decor, visuals and wild costumes." It's also his birthday.

Brooklyn Folk Festival
The annual Brooklyn Folk Festival begins tonight and runs through Sunday. This year it takes place at its largest venue yet, St. Ann and the Holy Trinity Church. Today's performers include Michael Hurley, Jerron "Blind Boy" Paxton and more.

NEW YORK'S ALRIGHT
NYC multi-venue punk/hardcore festival New York's Alright runs from today through Sunday. Of particular note is cult '80s UK deathrock band Part 1, who play their first NYC show ever tonight. Here's tonight's shows...

Kromosom, Blazing Eye, L.O.T.I.O.N., Pure Disgust, Sadist, Ajax @ Le Poisson Rouge
Interismo, Aspects of War, Mommy, Special Guest @ The Acheron
Part 1, Rule of Thirds, Survival, Aube, Cheena @ Saint Vitus

Cass

As you may know, there's no lack of events going on all over the country this year in celebration of The Grateful Dead's 50th anniversary. One of those is "Brooklyn Is Dead," Alex Bleeker and the Freaks' tribute show on February 10 at Brooklyn Bowl, and since we last posted, the lineup for that got way more impressive. It now also includes Cass McCombs, Darkside's Dave Harrington, Darkside collaborator Will Epstein, Woods' Jarvis Taveniere, and Patti Smith Group's Lenny Kaye. Tickets for that show, which also celebrates Relix's 40th anniversary, are still available. Flyer below.

In other news related to Alex Bleeker, his other band Real Estate are among the artists announced for Iowa City's Mission Creek Festival happening March 31-April 5. Also on that lineup is Freddie Gibbs, How to Dress Well, The Sea & Cake, King Tuff, Father John Misty, Glenn Kotche & Jeffrey Zeigler, Foxygen, Amen Dunes, Ryley Walker, Silver Apples, SQÜRL (ft. Jim Jarmusch) and more. Full lineup below. Tickets are on sale.

In other news related to The Grateful Dead, drummers Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann have announced that they'll team up ahead of the Grateful Dead shows for a collaborative set with The Disco Biscuits (which they also did at Gathering of the Vibes 2014) on April 17 at Red Rocks Amphitheatre.

Grateful Dead tribute band Dark Star Orchestra also have six NYC-area dates coming up, including Brooklyn Bowl.

And right before Phil Lesh's 75th birthday shows at Capitol Theatre (two of which are still on sale), Warren Haynes (who's joining Phil for those shows) will play the Cap with his own band Gov't Mule, joined by special guest (and past Phil Lesh collaborator) John Scofield on March 13 & 14. Tickets for those shows are on sale now.

Lastly, two days after the "Brooklyn Is Dead" show, Dave Harrington plays his own Brooklyn show on February 12 at Shea Stadium with Sam Cohen, Shark? and Kinsey.

Mission Creek Festival lineup below...

How to Dress Well at Flow Festival 2014 (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)
HTDW

As discussed, How to Dress Well is playing one of the last-ever Glasslands shows on December 16, and it's since been revealed that he'll be appearing live in NYC the day after that too. On December 17 at Verboten, HTDW will take part in SPIN and Microsoft's The Connect Sessions, which "pairs groundbreaking artists across the worlds of music, digital design, and visual art to build one-of-a-kind, collaborative pieces of content."

The pairings include Ian Williams of Battles/Don Caballero with visual artist Ron Amstutz, How to Dress Well with multi-media artist Melissa Matos (TRUSST), and electronic musician Com Truise with videographer Deborah Johnson (aka CandyStations). The show goes from 8 PM to midnight, and is 21+. To get in, you have to RSVP.

TR/ST @ Irving Plaza in September (more by Amanda Hatfield)

As mentioned, Glasslands is planning some cool shows for their final month. Among them is Toronto's Trust, who are now offically spelling their name TR/ST, on December 29. That show is with Klaus, SoftSpot, and a DJ set by Big Al. Tickets for that show go on sale today at 1 PM. TR/ST's last NYC visit was at Irving Plaza in September.

In addition to this and the Pains of Being Pure at Heart show on 11/24, some of the other just-announced Glasslands shows that all go on sale at 1 PM today include:

Com Truise at Sasquatch in 2012 (more by Chris Graham & Rae Graham)
Com Truise

Com Truise, aka producer and designer Seth Haley, put out the hazy Wave 1 EP earlier in the year, and is currently working on a full-length.

EMA at SXSW 2014 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
EMA

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

Baths, Young Fathers, P. Morris @ Bowery Ballroom
Baths took an unexpected turn towards emotional songwriting on last year's Obsidian, while still keeping his electronic pop style intact. He's continuing to support the album on his current tour, which hits NYC tonight for a sold-out show.

Andrew W.K. (Grand Piano Party) @ SubCulture
Andrew WK's got more Grand Piano Parties coming up this weekend, including one tonight and another tomorrow. While we don't always associate Andrew WK with grand pianos, we're sure he'll deliver on making it a party.

Caveman, Total Slacker, Reputante, Amanda X @ Brooklyn Night Bazaar
Brooklyn Night Bazaar offers weekends of local artisan shopping, gourmet eats, beer and wine, ping pong, black light minigolf and music all under one Greenpoint roof. Tonight's a diverse bill, with guitar pop (Caveman, Reputante) separated by blasts of noise (Total Slacker, Amanda X). Free.

The Feelies @ The Bell House
Legendary New Jersey band The Feelies have proved influential on generations of post-punk, jangle pop and alternative rock bands, and their 30+ year old material still sounds timeless today. They're no slackers in the live show department either -- they play a few shows in the area every year these days and are always worth catching.

EMA, Downtown Boys @ Mercury Lounge
EMA's new album, The Future's Void, is just as and sometimes more devastating than its predecessor, with a killer variety of tunes that pull from industrial, alternative rock, folk and more. She's on tour with the saxophone-driven, politically-fueled Providence punk band Downtown Boys, who are worth showing up on time for. Sold out.

Bo Ningen, These People, Ken South Rock @ Knitting Factory
One of the most talked-about bands at SXSW this year was Japanese band Bo Ningen, due in no small part to their wild, guitar-swinging, in-your-face shows. Experience them for yourself -- this is the first of two NYC shows for the band.

The Bad Plus @ Jazz Standard (early set and late set)
Going for nearly 25 years, The Bad Plus continue to straddle the line between jazz and modern rock. Their new record is an album-length recording of Stravinsky's "THe Rites of Spring." Tonight's the second evening of a four-night run at Jazz Standard, with an early and late show.

The Split Squad featuring the Figgs, Los Dudes @ The Bowery Electric
Featuring Blondie drummer Clem Burke, Fleshtones guitarist Keith Streng, The Plimsouls Eddie Munoz, and others, The Spit Squad make crunchy, rockin' power pop. Their debut album was produced by Scott McCaughey of Young Fresh Fellows. Tonight they'll be aided and abetted by upstate NY's legendary The Figgs. Special guests could happen.

Timber Timbre, Fiver @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Timber Timbre's great and often-underrated dark balladry sounds as good as ever on this year's Hot Dreams, and maybe it's actually not that underrated 'cause tonight's show is sold out.

Heaven's Gate, Lost Boy?, The Veda Rays, Heeney, Sunflower Bean @ Death by Audio
Out of the ashes of Sweet Bulbs, Heaven's Gate took some of their old band's dreamy noise, but took it in a significantly different direction, playing to singer strengths and became more of punky rock band...while still using a lot of effects pedals.

Steve Gunn, Kevin Morby, Prince Rupert's Drops @ Rough Trade
A onetime member of Kurt Vile's backing band, The Violators, Gunn released his most recent solo album, Time Off, last year. Kevin Morby, meanwhile, used to be in Woods, now co-fronts The Babies, and released a very good solo album last year. He also now lives in California so your chances to see him play aren't as frequent.

Toadies, Supersuckers @ Stone Pony (NJ)
It's a double bill of '90s-era Southwest alt-rock with hitmakers the Toadies (remember "Possum Kingdom"?) and self-proclaimed "Greatest Rock 'n' Roll Band in the World," The Supersuckers.

Com Truise, Alex English, rekLES @ Webster Hall
Com Truise brings the beats to tonight's Girls & Boys party at Webster Hall and is sure to keep the place moving.

Culture Shock @ SUNY Purchase
It's the first day of Purchase's annual two-day Culture Shock festival and features a variety of great stuff, including NYC rap trio Flatbush Zombies, R&B singer Kelela, production wizard Traxman, comedian Neil Hamburger, jazz trio Dawn of Midi, pop shoegazers FIeld Mouse and more. Kaytranada plays the afterparty. The festival is technically only open to students, alumni, and their guests.

Lonnie Holley at MHOW in 2013 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Lonnie

Outsider artist Lonnie Holley, who we wrote about around the time of his shows with Deerhunter and Bill Callahan and who has made fans out of (and since collaborated with) Deerhunter's Bradford Cox and Black Lips' Cole Alexander, will return to NYC for two shows this week. First, he plays a night show on Tuesday (4/15) at Baby's All Right with no wave legend and experimental composer Arto Lindsay (of DNA and others), and Georgia. Georgia also joins Lonnie for his set, and maybe Arto will too? Tickets for that show are on sale now.

Then on Saturday (4/19) for Record Store Day he plays a 1 PM in-store at Other Music. The two NYC shows are Lonnie's only currently announced dates.

Other Music, which will turn 20 next year, will open at 10 AM for RSD. It doesn't quite have the room for in-store performances and shopping at the same time (like at Rough Trade), so they have up to this point just booked musicians as DJs. Lonnie's set will be the one actual live performance this year though. The rest of the day is DJs and the lineup includes Pop. 1280, Com Truise, Xeno & Oaklander, Pete Swanson, Matana Roberts and more. Full schedule is listed below.

noise pop

We mentioned earlier that Real Estate would be playing the 2014 Noise Pop Festival in San Francisco, where they've actually got two shows at The Independent: February 28 with Dream Boys, and March 1 with Dominant Legs. What we haven't done is run down this year's fest which happens at venues all over San Francisco from February 25 - March 2.

In addition to Real Estate, this year's Noise Pop (now in its 21st year) features such acts as Throwing Muses, Cold Cave, Mark Mulcahy, Mikal Cronin, Bob Mould, No Age, The Fresh & Onlys, Dr. Dog, Courtney Barnett, Cheatahs, and lots more. Badges that get you into all events are on sale now.

Tickets for Camp Bisco are still available. Updated lineup, a list of upcoming Squarepusher (mostly festival) dates, and the video for "Dark Steering" from his 2012 LP, Ufabulum, below...

Passion Pit at MSG earlier this month (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)

Camp Bisco is known for a long history of booking jam bands and dance music, but has branched out in recent years. This year's lineup has an especially interesting slew of non-jam. The festival goes down from July 11 to 13 at the Indian Lookout Country Club in Mariaville, NY and features Passion Pit, Animal Collective, Toro y Moi, El-P, Killer Mike, Baauer, Dan Deacon, Com Truise, Ryan Hemsworth, Flosstradamus, Bear Mountain, Free Energy, RL Grime, VHS or Beta, and others, including of course The Disco Biscuits, who run the festival.

Com Truise at Sasquatch 2012 (more by Chris Graham and Rae Graham)
Com Truise

Com Truise (aka Seth Haley) plays NYC a lot, but it's usually at venues like Music Hall of Williamsburg and Gramercy, so it should be a pretty intimate night for Com Truise fans when Seth plays a solo live set at Glasslands on February 22. Not to mention there will be an opening set from Beacon, along with one from Nitemoves (not to be confused with Domino-signed band Night Moves) and DJ duties being covered by Heathered Pearls. Tickets for that show are on sale now. His only other dates that we're aware of at the moment are in Honolulu and LA.

Nothing formal has been announced yet, but on New Year's Day Com Truise posted a facebook status saying that he's "looking forward to bringing you lots of new music this year." Meanwhile, you can stream his 2012 single, "Chemical Legs," and check out a list of all upcoming tour dates below...

RJD2's record collection?
RJD2

RJD2's NYC New Year's Eve show at Gramercy Theater, which is on sale now, will be with Com Truise and Chrome Sparks (who will DJ). Chrome Sparks (not to be confused with Chrome Canyon or Chrome Cranks) meanwhile can be found at Glasslands on 12/14 with producer Gigamesh (whose tour also brings to the Delancey one night earlier). Com Truise has no other shows scheduled at the moment.

RJD2 recently created a Spotify playlist of songs he's been listening to lately, and filmed a new video as part of T-Mobile sponsored series called "Life Without Limits". In it he talks about his career, and basically how he lives his life. You can watch that, along with more dates for artists mentioned above, below...

Com Truise at Sasquatch 2012 (more by Chris Graham)
Com Truise

Metric/St. Vincent
Sasquatch Festival 2012 - Day 2
Sasquatch Festival 2012 - Day 2

7:32pm Metric wrapped up a touch early; partly because one new song ("Lost Kitten") was stopped 10 seconds into it and Emily decided to strike it from the set. Aside from that odd error, Metric played a fair set. They cited the show as their "public debut" of Synthetica and they did play mostly new material (7 out of 11 songs), most of which sounds promising. It's always hard to judge new material accurately as the audience doesn't know it so it always comes across slightly weak or stiff. Metric opened their set with newbie "Artificial Nocturne" (also the album's opener). It was one of the stronger new tracks. The other stand outs were "Youth Without Youth" (when played live it seemed to lose it's sluggishness of it's studio version) and "Nothing But Time", a synth/piano number that builds each verse until drums kick in and the song finishes with a flourish of Emily Haines' Pro-One synth. The band closed with an acoustic version "Gimme Sympathy" that had pretty much the entire amphitheater singing along. [The Province]
Here's more pictures from the super-stacked Saturday (5/26) line-up of the Sasquatch Music Festival which happened Memorial Day Weekend in Gorge, Washington -- including Metric, St. Vincent, The Shins, Dum Dum Girls, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Couer de Pirate, Sol, Com Truise and more. The first set from Saturday (5/26) are HERE and Friday (5/25) are HERE. More from Day 2 below and still more Sasquatch pics to come.

Com Truise at Public Assembly earlier this month (more by Ryan Muir)

The shows with Com Truise are the only dates listed on Tobacco's calendar other than a show at Poughkeepsie's Vassar College on 4/20. Com Truise, on the other hand, will continue touring the US this month, head to the UK in May, and was just announced on the lineup of this summer's North Coast Music Festival in Chicago along with the Rapture, Dan Deacon, Big Boi and many more.

Purity Ring

Like they did for a BrooklynVegan party during CMJ, Purity Ring will play a show at Public Assembly in Brooklyn... TOMORROW (4/4). Com Truise opens at 8pm. Purity Ring at 9. Tickets only at the door.

The show will be a mini celebration of what appears to be a signing to 4AD (and Last Gang) for an album that will be released 7/24/2012.

Purity Ring, who were just added to Pitchfork Fest (which their now-labelmate Grimes is also playing), also have a few other shows scheduled (though not sure at the moment if one of them is with Dirty Projectors at Prospect Park). All dates and a new set of pictures from Purity Ring's BrooklynVegan-CMJ set at Public Assembly, below...

Sasquatch

"Following last year's 10th anniversary, which crushed previous attendance records and set a new mark for the speed with which tickets sold out, the Sasquatch! Music Festival unveils its 2012 lineup which once again features 4 days of music. The festival, hailed as "a model of well-paced programming...in a four-day schedule as efficient and natural feeling as an expertly built algorithm" by NPR Music while Wired notes, "leave the landscape out of it and Sasquatch! has a lineup to kill for," runs May 25-28 (Memorial Day Weekend) at The Gorge, the internationally acclaimed concert venue carved in the basalt cliffs high above the Columbia River Gorge in Quincy, WA."
The Sasquatch! Music Festival takes place, as usual, at the Gorge Amphitheatre in George, Washington over Memorial Day weekend (May 25-28). And this year's lineup is:

Active Child
Active Child

One Thirty BPM: Now that you're going out on your own tour do you feel extra pressure as the headliner?

Active Child (Pat Grossi): Of course! We've done five support tours in the US and UK and Europe and there's still pressure doing that because you're live and you want to impress and get new fans and impress the band you're opening for; there's all this pressure. But then when you're the headliner everyone's there to see you so you don't want to get shown up!

One Thirty BPM: Do you get any comfort from knowing that you're playing to an audience that will be more familiar with your material?

Active Child (Pat Grossi): Yeah, I think so. It seems like every show I play I get more comments from the people who have never heard of me before, but I'm definitely excited to play for an audience that is there specifically for my music.

Glowsticks came out to play at Active Child's sold out headlining show with Com Truise & Young Athletes League at Bowery Ballroom on Saturday night (9/10). Here are some pictures. They continue below...
