King Khan & the Shrines @ House of Vans (more by Courtney Dudley)
Inter Arma at Hopscotch Fest 2013 (more by Karen A. Mann)
Browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows. Here are some highlights...
The Broken Circle Breakdown screening @ Knitting Factory (FREE)
Start off your night with a free screening on this acclaimed Belgian drama, a romance set against tattoo parlors and bluegrass bands. It officially opens on Friday but BrooklynVegan is presenting this FREE screening tonight. No RSVP necessary. 7 PM, First come, first served. Trailer for the film is below.
King Khan & The Shrines, Hell Shovel @ Webster Hall
Garage soul party starters King Kahn & the Shrines kicked back into action this year with Idle No More, their first album for Merge. KK shows are always wild but add in Devil's Night to the mix, and who knows what sort of craziness we'll get. Tickets are still available.
Black Tusk, Inter Arma, Descender, No Way @ Saint Vitus
The punky sludge metal of Black Tusk and the psychedelic black metal of Inter Arma make for an excellent heavy double bill. And where better to see it than the black-walled Saint Vitus?
Grand Resort (as New Order), Dead Stars (as Nirvana), Butter The Children (as the Pixies), Le Rug (as At The Drive In), Turnip King (as The Velvet Underground), Honduras (as Green Day) @ 285 Kent Avenue
Halloween is just around the corner (tomorrow!) and these local indie bands are getting in the spirit tonight by "dressing up as" (aka covering) older bands.
Cypress Hill, Redman, Smoke DZA @ Best Buy Theater
Another Halloween regular: Cypress Hill return to Best Buy Theater tonight. The hip hop group will be joined by fellow veteran Redman, and a much newer rapper, Smoke DZA.
Tera Melos, Fang Island, Zorch @ Bowery Ballroom
Do you like guitars? Do you like them fast, noodly, and all over the place, but still catchy? Then you'll love this bill of all Sargent House bands, who will provide a triple attack of fun, fists-raised shred.
Ital, Huerco S., Creep (DJ set), The Range, Aurora Halal @ Cameo Gallery
This bill is not to miss for fans of IDM. Ital is always a great time, Huerco S' brand of minimalism is fantastic, and The Range was one of the hotter names in electronic music at this year's CMJ.
RL Grime, DJ Wonder @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
For a very different type of electronic music, and one to likely have the crowd going a bit wilder than tonight's Cameo show, the exciting, upcoming trap producer RL Grime headlines this sold-out show at MHOW tonight.
Pop. 1280, Oozing Wound, The Dreebs, Sediment Club @ Death By Audio
This is a good bill for fans of dark, guitar-oriented music with the gothy Pop. 1280, the trashy Oozing Wound, the shoegazy Dreebs, and the no-wavey Sediment Club.
The Voluptuous Horror of Karen Black, Youthquake, No Bra @ The Bowery Electric
For those who like their Devil's Night fun on weird side, there's probably no better show than this, with the theatrical Voluptuous Horror of Karen Black, gothy Youthquake, and the literally topless postpunk performance art of No Bra.
Vulture Shit, Flagland, Pocket Pool, Washer @ Trash Bar
Another of many chances to catch promising Brooklyn punk bands Vulture Shit and Flagland.
Keep Shelly In Athens, Alexander Howard @ The Mercury Lounge
Night two in NYC for dreamy Greek electronic pop band Keep Shelly in Athens.
Chance The Rapper, DJ Rashad & Spinn @ SOB's
Chance the Rapper has had a pretty successful career thanks to his catchy Acid Rap mixtape, and this week he returns to NYC for two sold out shows at SOB's. This is night two and he's doing two shows (early and late). Also don't miss footwork wizard DJ Rashad.
Young Braised, Jay Arner @ Coco66
It's a double dose of Vancouver, with trippy hip hop artist Young Braised and Jay Arner who leans towards Wild Nothing style dream pop.
Nothing Changes w/ You, Ell V Gore @ Home Sweet Home
For some, every Wednesday is Halloween. Get down with darkwave, minimal synth, industrial, EBM, and straight-up goth at this weekly, fog-machine-filled party. Performing live are synthy You and Toronto's twisted Ell V Gore. Believer/Law were supposed to be on this show but they dropped off.
How Was Your Week with Julie Klausner @ The Bell House
Julie Klausner is taping her popular podcast live tonight with a pretty stellar line-up of guests: , Ted Leo, A.C. Newman, Jean Grae, and Laura Benanti. Sold out.
Big Terrific @ Cameo Gallery
Max Silvestri hosts the free weekly comedy show in the back of Williamsburg's Lovin' Cup. Tonight's line-up features Ben Kronberg, Eliza Skinner, Alice Wetterlund, Bob Powers, and Noah Garfinkel.
It's Devil's Night. Watch out for mischief!

As mentioned, Prinzhorn Dance School are playing their first-ever North American shows next week as they're over for the sold-out DFA Records' 12th Anniversary Party at Grand Prospect Hall on May 25 and part of Red Bull Music Academy if you forgot. They're also playing with YACHT at Shea Stadium the night before (5/24) and tickets are still available for that one.
The UK duo who play spare, jagged postpunk are making the most of their trip here and have added a third NYC show, playing May 27 at Cameo with DJ sets from DFA labelmate Planningtorock and CREEP, plus a live performance from Dan Bodan. Tickets are on sale now.
All Prinzhorn Dance School date are listed, along with a few streams and videos, below...
DOWNLOAD: Phoenix - "Entertainment" (Dirty Projectors Remix) (MP3)
Blood Orange at Bowery Ballroom in 2011 (more by Ryan Barkan)
Blood Orange (aka Dev Hynes) has a few dates scheduled for this year, including a few in NYC. The first is a benefit for LGBT rights organization Human Rights Campaign at Le Poisson Rouge on May 4 with Creep, MEN (the JD Samson one), Light Asylum, Nina Sky, and "surprise special guests." It's being hosted by Amanda Leigh Dunn and Becka Diamond is DJing. Tickets for that benefit are on sale now.
A few days later, both Dev and Creep will be headed to Glasslands on May 9 for another benefit: the previously discussed fundraiser for Benjamin Curtis of School of Seven Bells, who is battling cancer. Dev is DJing at that one and Creep is playing live. Plus, Exitmusic and Rewards are playing live, and Albert Hammond Jr. and Certain Creatures are DJing. Tickets for that one are still available.
Blood Orange will do a third NYC date a few days after the Glasslands show when he opens for Phoenix (whose single, "Entertainment," he recently remixed) when their tour hits The Apollo on May 13 for a sold out show. Phoenix's tour also includes a larger, not-sold-out show on October 2 at Barclays Center with The Vaccines (tickets). Phoenix's "Entertainment" was also just given the remix treatment yet again, this time by Dirty Projectors. You can download that above or stream it below.
After the NYC dates, Blood Orange doesn't have anything scheduled until Pitchfork Festival. All dates are listed below...
Exitmusic @ Brooklyn Bowl, June 2012 (more by Jessica Amaya)
He is responding really well to treatment, and rough as it has been, it's your messages and posts that have inspired us and keep us focused on the path ahead. Thank you so much to all of you who have been continuously sending love.The band have set up SupportBenjaminCurtis.com for those who'd like to help Curtis' mounting medical bills. There's also a fundraiser concert happening at Glasslands on May 9 with live sets from CREEP, Exitmusic, and Rewards, plus Albert Hammond Jr, Blood Orange, and Certain Creatures on DJ duty between sets. Tickets are on sale now.

Yeah Yeah Yeahs @ Union Pool, 12/8/2012
Yeah Yeah Yeahs teamed with Higgins Waterproof Blackmagic (a new side project from Tunde of TV on the Radio) and a DJ set from Creep at Union Pool last night (12/8). Yes, the room was absolutely minuscule for a band of the YYY's size, but the occasion was to help raise money for victims of Hurricane Sandy, specifically via Waves 4 Water (follow that link to donate if you can). The YYYs were a quartet for the evening, adding collaborator David Pajo to the mix on that rainy Saturday.
More pics from Union Pool are below, including one of the setlist (which included the new song "Despair" presumably from their forthcoming LP).
Andrew WK at Webster Hall in April (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Assuming we all survive the apocalypse, Halloween is Wednesday (10/31), and as you know there are plenty of ways to celebrate in NYC. Another recently announced option is the Halloween Hellraiser at new Greenpoint warehouse Autumn Bowl with professional partier Andrew WK. He'll be joined by Creep (DJ), Ice Balloons, DJ Dog Dick, and more artists TBA. Tickets for the show are on sale now. A gif flyer for the show is below. UPDATE: Halloween show cancelled.
Andrew WK has been keeping busy in NYC the last couple of weeks, having just taken part in a bunch of CMJ events and appeared as one of the guests at Petty Fest. He's also got two events happening close to NYC right before New Year's Eve. He plays Stanhope House on December 29 in NJ (tickets) and Ollie's Point on December 30 in Long Island (tickets). Maybe he'll add a show happening on New Year's Eve in NYC?
Meanwhile, Autumn Bowl has been hosting few but solid shows since opening. Maybe you caught Zomby (10/18) or Kyp Malone (10/20) there during CMJ? Or this past Friday when Four Tet and Jamie xx DJed back to back? If you've been to the new venue, how is it?
A list of all Andrew WK dates, the Halloween show flyer, and a recent live video are below.
Inspired by k3wl orgs like Public School, Cabinet, Brooklyn Brainery, & with a general commitment to diversity, Public Assembly's putting on the Ritz: gallery shows, panel discussions & radical arts get intermixed with our normal jams: cool bands, killer late night parties, and drank. Pro-women, pro-queer, pro-art, pro-imagination, proproblem solving, fans of the radical, and understanding of your budget - we're here to provide the best week-long version of a state-funded liberal arts college we can. LiveEt cetera happens at Public Assembly from September 16 - 22 and features over two dozen lectures, panel discussions, demonstrations, concerts and other learning-leaning events, most of which are free.

The Gossip played Terminal 5 on Tuesday (May 22), supporting their new, disco-ized album A Joyful Noise which came out the same day. Given the success of the Soulwax remix of "Standing in the Way of Control," it's a logical progression, and Beth Ditto has taken on the new role with the command you'd expect. Maybe you watched the show from your couch, as it streamed live from Bowery Presents's YouTube channel. There are video clips from that stream below if you missed in on Tuesday.
The band jet off to Europe soon for a tour and those dates are listed below. Check out more pictures of The Gossip's T5 set below, as well as openers Ssion and Creep (who got a little help from School of Seven Bells' Alejandra Deheza).
Tickets go on AmEx presale at noon for the two Wilco shows in Prospect Park. They go on general sale on Friday at noon which is also when the My Morning Jacket show at Williamsburg Park goes on sale. My Morning Jacket dates meanwhile goes on presale at noon but access requires signing up for their fan club or something (promo code MMJ2012).
Williamsburg Park now has five shows total announced and will be part of the Northside Festival in June too.
UPDATE: The Beach House show that was announced yesterday also had an AmEx presale at noon (that went instantly) .
HR with Bad Brains at Music Hall of Williamsburg (more by Erik Erikson)
The two-day benefit for Lucinda's Kids at Bowery Electric begins today (4/29) with Marah, Jesse Malin, Willie Nile, Jimmy Gnecco, Dave Milone, Jim Boggie, Aaron Lee Tasjan, Ptter Ericson Stakee.
H.R. of Bad Brains plays night two, Monday, of that Manhattan benefit, but first he'll headline a Brooklyn show of his own at Public Assembly tonight (4/29) with support from Paranoid Social Club, The WonderMics, Groundswell, Matt Pless, and Jay Samel. Tickets are on sale.
The show is one of a few notable events at Public Assembly in the coming months. Xeno & Oaklander will headline Public Assembly on May 11th with David J (Bauhaus), Frank (Just Frank), and DJ sets by CREEP and Todd Pendu. Tickets are still available. Xeno & Oaklander are currently touring in the Midwest.
Also going down in the near future at Public Assembly, Idiot Glee (who we profiled last year) will play with Nick Diamonds (of islands), Celestial Shore, and DJ Udbhav on May 11th. $8 gets you in. Idiot Glee recently posted a new video for "That's All For Everyone" which is viewable below. The track comes from the band's Don't Go Out Tonight 7" and is a cover of Fleetwood Mac. Pick up a copy.
Public Assembly will host The X-Ecutioners, Da Beatminerz and "special guests TBA" alongside resident DJs Total Eclipse and Gen.Erik on May 3rd. Details, including cost, are forthcoming but prepare for a night of jaw-dropping turntablism.
Check out that Idiot Glee video and more videos below.

Friends of Friends labelmates and fellow LA-ians Salva and Shlohmo are teaming up for a European tour this February, but before they head overseas, they'll stop in NYC for a show at Glasslands on January 28 with a DJ set by CREEP, who also DJS Cameo on Friday (1/13) with School of Seven Bells (DJ) and Rewards (DJ). Tickets for the Glasslands show are on sale now.
Salva released his most recent LP, Complex Housing, last year (buy it at eMusic), packed with bass, up-shifted vocals, and a glitchy LA hip hop feel. Grab the album's single, "Wake Ups," above, and stream it below. He also just made a mix for FADER which you can download HERE.
Shlohmo also released an LP last year titled Bad Vibes, which you can also buy at eMusic, and he's following it with the Vacation EP, due out February 7 via Friends of Friends. Shlohmo opts for a more downtempo feel than Salva, and the lead track off Vacation, "wen uuu," which you can stream below, is an excellent example of that. The track is similar to other recent Burial disciples, with the ambient watery feel of Balam Acab and the rhythmic play of Mount Kimbie. A remix EP will be released on March 1 featuring remixes from Salva, Nicolas Jaar (who plays MHOW in February), and more TBA. Vaction album art below.
Speaking of electronic shows at Glasslands by artists whose names begin with "S" ("sh" even), Shigeto will play the Brooklyn venue on Saturday (1/14) with Krystal Klear and Nooka Jones. Tickets are on sale now. He's also got a new release on the way, titled Lineage, coming out January 31 via Ghostly. He just released a second track from it, "Huron River Drive," a jazzy passage of clap snares and keyboard noodling. Download that and the equally vibe-y title track above, and stream both below. The album art and tracklist are also below.
The Glasslands show is one of few currently scheduled dates for Shigeto, including one at Princeton, NJ's Terrace Club three days later (1/17) with Dabrye and Madlib, who plays MHOW one day later (1/18) with JRocc and Freddie Gibbs.
All dates, streams, and more below...

The National played Milk Studios Wednesday. Kanye West didn't play, but he was hanging out at the "Best New Menswear Designers in America Fall 2011 Collections event" at Ace Hotel last night. Creep (with Nina Sky) are playing Tribeca Grand tonight.
We know Arcade Fire won't be playing any Fashion Week shows - not because they're not fashionable, but because they're playing a show in LA tonight. The occasion is that, like Dr. Dre and Bob Dylan, they're in California to play the Grammys on Sunday.
Leave your Fashion Week tips in the comments.
After an appearance at SXSW in Austin followed by the Ultra Music Festival in Miami (full lineup belolw), the Klaxons will play shows on their way to the sold-out Coachella Festival in California.
It looks like a full tour is still TBA, but (UPDATE: full tour now announced and) the dates will include a NYC show at Webster Hall on March 29th with Brooklyn's A Million Years (who also play Mercury Lounge on 2/11) and Brooklyn's Creep. Tickets for the Manhattan gig go on AMEX presale Wednesday at noon (2/2) and regular sale 48 hours later. All dates are listed below.
Creep is a duo comprised of Lauren Dillard and house DJ and producer Lauren Flax. Flax is also Fischerspooner's touring DJ. Creep recently dropped a video for "Days" directed by Fischerspooner Warren Fischer. The song features vocals from Romy Madley Croft of The xx. Check out that video below and look for Creep's debut LP later this year. Meanwhile they also have other collaborative singles planned with Reggaeton-R&B twins Nina Sky, Nomi Ruiz and Planning to Rock.
Speaking of Nomi Ruiz (who is best known for her role in Hercules & Love Affair), Nomi's current project Jessica 6 recently announced a March 1st Mercury Lounge show. That gig takes place not long after the band gets back from a European tour. All dates below.
Flax can also be found at One Step Beyond at The American Museum of Natural History this Friday (2/4), where she'll DJ alongside Scissor Sisters (who are also DJing) and Activaire. Tickets are still available. Scissor Sisters play live at Wellmont Theater on 2/18 (tickets available), a few days before they hit MSG at part of their tour with Lady Gaga.
Check out the video for Creep's "Days" (with Romy Madley Croft), and all tour dates, and the complete Ultra Music Festival lineup, below.
It's a little bit later this year, but the third annual The Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival will take place across two venues in Williamsburg on December 18th: Music Hall of Williamsburg and Public Assembly (if you didn't know, they are right next door to each other). The "fest" will feature acts from across the digital spectrum ("emerging and established bands, DJ's and producers from the Boroughs and beyond") including Sinden, Kid Sister, Javelin, Tittsworth, Class Actress, Brahms, Lemonade, and many others, with more to be announced.
Tickets are currently on "Super Limited Reduced Price Advance" sale.
