Faith No More in Chicago (more by James Richards IV)
Death Valley Girls @ Burger A-Go-Go 2014 (more by Debi Del Grande)

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

Faith No More, Le Butcherettes @ Webster Hall
Though they had fluke hit with "Epic," Faith No More have always been a deeply strange band, blending disparate music styles into something truly their own. Out next week, their new album Sol Invictus is their first since 1997. They celebrate tonight and Thursday at what is a very small venue for them.

Vetiver, Eric D. Johnson @ Bowery Ballroom
Vetiver, aka Bay Area resident Andy Cabic, released Complete Strangers, back in March, another fine collection of spacey folk rock. He plays tonight with Fruit Bats singer Eric D Johnson.

Jane's Addiction, A Place to Bury Strangers @ Brooklyn Bowl
Veteran alt-rock outfit Jane's Addiction are playing their 1988 major label debut, Nothing's Shocking, and if you're going, do check out longtime Brooklyn noisemakers/guitarthrowers A Place to Bury Strangers.

Death Valley Girls, The Gooch Palms @ Elvis Guesthouse
A killer garage-rock double bill, featuring Australia's party-forward Gooch Palms and LA riff-n-wailers Death Valley Girls.

Kaiser Chiefs, Priory @ Irving Plaza
Eleven years since "I Predict a Riot" and "Oh My God" catapulted them the stardom, the Kaiser Chiefs soldier on.

Tennis, Kuroma @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Boat-loving Denver duo Tennis released Ritual In Repeat (produced by Black Keys' Patrick Carney) last year, furthering their transformation from reverby indie types into anthemic pop indie types. If you're going, MGMT-related band Kuroma are worth seeing.

Merzbow, Pharmakon, Ron Morelli , Prurient, Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, Aaron Dilloway, Marshstepper, Uniform @ Output
Part of the Red Bull Music Academy, Nothing Changes take their late-night party from it's usual Home Sweet Home locale, and into danceclub Output -- featuring an impressive array of punk, electronics, and other stuff you could vaguely associate with goth/experimental/outsider what have you. This should be a fun, weird night.

Pianos Become the Teeth, Loma Prieta, Gates @ Saint Vitus
On their recent third album, Pianos Become the Teeth stopped screaming but harnessed that same level of intensity in a different way and came out with their best record yet. Tonight's openers fall on both sides of PBTT's sound. There's Loma Prieta repping the heavy side, and Gates repping the pretty stuff.

Death Vessel, Blood Warrior, Air Waves, Frog @ Palisades
Death Vessel's (aka Joel Thibodeau) latest album, last year's Island Intervals on Sub Pop, is a very solid indie folk record with gorgeous falsettos from both Joel himself and his collaborator Jonsi of Sigur Ros.

Crosby, Stills & Nash @ State Theatre
Folk rock as we know it wouldn't be the same without Crosby, Stills & Nash, who continue to inspire new groups and whose classic material still sounds timeless. They play two Brooklyn shows later this week, but tonight they're nearby in New Brunswick.

Tanlines, Mas Ysa @ Rough Trade
Brooklyn dancepop duo Tanlines embrace guitars, drums and other acoustic instruments on their new album, Highlights, which is out next week. They celebrate early tonight.

John Mulaney @ Capitol Theatre
His sitcom didn't do so well, but John Mulaney is still a very funny guy. He's in his element tonight.

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

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

Julianna Barwick, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, DJ Allen Blickle (Alpaca), Andy Boay (Tonstartssbandht), Cults, POP ETC (acoustic), Marnie Stern & The Figs (w/ members of Les Savy Fav & Girls Against Boys), Surfer Blood, We Are Scientists @ Bowery Ballroom (Thomas Fekete benefit)
Surfer Blood guitarist Thomas Fekete is sadly battling cancer, and tonight a bunch of his talented friends are coming together to raise money to help with his medical bills. This is one pretty amazing bill, and for a great cause.

Laibach @ Gramercy Theatre
Slovenian industrial vets Laibach went back to work last year, releasing Spectre, their first album in eight years. It was also one of their more accessible albums, mixing pop and Euro-dance with their extreme sound...and Milan Fras' distinct vocal style. Their live show, which leans on theatricality, is usually pretty cool.

Jessica Pratt, Jaye Bartell @ Union Pool
If you're looking for modern artists keeping alive late '60s / early '70s psychedelic folk, few do it better than Jessica Pratt. Tonight's show is sold out. She also returns to NYC for a show with Ryley Walker in June.

Sam Prekop, Mountains @ Trans-Pecos
The Sea & Cake frontman Sam Prekop recently released a new solo album of modular synth compositions, and he's currently on tour in support of it with his Sea & Cake bandmate Archer Prewitt. They'll be "playing as a duo, performing improvised synth/guitar duets followed by a short set of classic Sea and Cake tracks." Sam's droney Thrill Jockey labelmates Mountains open. This show was moved to Trans-Pecos from The Wick.

The Gooch Palms, Las Rosas, Death Valley Girls, Larry & the Babes, Surfbort @ Silent Barn
This bill is loaded with a lot of great garage rock, from the party duo The Gooch Palms, to the psych-leaning Death Valley Girls, to NYC's sunshiney Las Rosas, and more.

East India Youth, Glass Gang @ Rough Trade
East India Youth makes electronic pop full of ambient atmospheres, and recently released his second album Volume on XL. Tonight's show was moved to Rough Trade from Bowery Ballroom.

Les Big Byrd, BNLX @ Cake Shop
Featuring members of The Cezars and Teddybears, Sweden's Les Big Byrd make killer motorik, shoegazy psych. This is their second NYC show of the week (and also ever) and they share the bill with Minneapolis' fun noisepop band BNLX.

A conversation with George Clinton @ Brooklyn Museum (RBMA)
The Red Bull Music Academy NYC residency continues tonight with a conversation with funk/soul legend George Clinton of Parliament-Funkadelic.

Crosby, Stills & Nash @ State Theatre
Folk rock as we know it wouldn't be the same without Crosby, Stills & Nash, who continue to inspire new groups and whose classic material still sounds timeless. They play two Brooklyn shows later this week, but tonight they're nearby in New Brunswick.

Saxon, Armored Saint @ BB King's
Saxon were among the early wave of NWOBHM bands, influencing tons of bands (like Metallica), and releasing at least a few classic albums that still live up today.

Say Lou Lou, Okay Kaya @ Mercury Lounge
Swedish/Australian sisterly duo -- Miranda Anna and Elektra June Kilbey-Jansson, both models and daughters of The Church's Steve Kilbey -- make slick, Euro-style dancepop that sometimes (like on the Lindstrom-produced "Games for Girls") is pretty fun.

La-Bas @ Baby's All Right
La-Bas are something of an indie supergroup, with members of Shudder To Think and My Midnight Heart, and they have contributions from members of The War on Drugs, Fruit Bats, the David Byrne & St. Vincent band and more on their just-released debut album. Tonight's the release party for that album and their first-ever live performance.

Yelawolf, Hillbilly Casino, DJ Klever @ Brooklyn Bowl
Yelawolf is pretty hit (like his "1 Train" verse) or miss (like his Kid Rock collaboration), but when it's the former he's got some fun moments.

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

Nellie McKay

Singer/songwriter and actress Nellie McKay is releasing the followup to 2010's Home Sweet Mobile Home this year with My Weekly Reader on March 24. It's a '60s covers album that has her taking on songs by The Beatles, The Kinks, Crosby Stills & Nash, Small Faces, Frank Zappa, Herman's Hermits, Steve Miller Band, Richard & Mimi Farina, Moby Grape, Country Joe McDonald, Gerry & the Pacemakers, The Cyrcle and Alan Price. Keeping with the '60s theme, she recorded it with Beatles engineer Geoff Emerick. Her cover of Moby Grape's "Murder In My Heart for the Judge" came out a little while back and can be streamed below, and we've now got the premiere of her cover of another California psych/folk rock artist, Country Joe McDonald. She does "Not So Sweet Martha Lorraine," as you can hear while you watch the very appropriate visual accompaniment (by The Joshua Light Show), below. Tracklist below too.

Nellie's also going on a tour, which includes five shows at NYC's 54 Below, the cabaret supper club in the basement of Studio 54. She plays the club on April 13, 15, 16, 17 and 18. The venue's event description reads: "Led by a trail of incense, Nellie revisits some of the melodies from the 1960s in her new show. Celebrating the release of her new album, My Weekly Reader, she will travel to a land of strange and wonderful musical delights with the grooved assistance of her magical band, The Cosmic X-Rays (Alexi David/bass, Cary Park/guitar, Kenneth Salters/drums)... A splendid time is guaranteed for all!" Tickets for all five shows are on sale now.

On the day of the album's release (3/24), Nellie will play a free in-store at Barnes & Noble in TriBeCa at 6 PM. If you purchase the album at B&N, you get priority seating, and she'll be signing CDs afterwards.

All dates are listed below...

Dallas Taylor

Dallas Taylor, drummer for Crosby, Stills and Nash on their 1969 debut album and for CSNY on 1970's Deja Vu, has passed away. He was 66. Dallas's wife Patti Mcgovern-Taylor broke the news on Facebook, writing:

This morning at 2:30 am I lost the love of my life Dallas W Taylor, he came into my life almost 18 yrs ago and saved me as much as i may have saved him, To me he was just a Good Man, a Good Friend, a Good Father, a Good Grandfather or Pop Pop, a Great Drummer and much beloved by many. I cannot even find the words to put down to say how grateful I am for the many friends and family who have been there for both of us these many days he has spent in the hospital, especially last night. I know he is a peace. He will be missed beyond words, it is so very hard to imagine my life without him by my side, but i feel his love even as i write these words. Much Love to you all ...Patti
In addition to CSN and CSNY, he collaborated with Stephen Stills once again on Stills' 1970 solo album and in the band Manassas. He also played with Van Morrison and Paul Butterfield in the mid-'70s.

Rest in peace Dallas. Those classic CSN/CSNY albums wouldn't be the same without you.

Listen to a few CSN/CSNY songs with Dallas below...

Neil Young & friends during Lou Reed tribute

The annual Bridge School Benefit Concert went down over the weekend (10/26 & 10/27) with sets from Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young, Arcade Fire, Tom Waits, My Morning Jacket, Elvis Costello, Tom Waits and more. On the first day, Neil Young joined Arcade Fire (like he did at the 2011 benefit), this time for a new song that Win said was written in a dream and inspired by Neil, and hence titled, "I Dreamed A Neil Young Song." Neil also joined MMJ for "Harvest Moon." You can check out an 8-hour full-set video of day 1 below (MMJ comes on around 4:50, Arcade Fire around 5:40, QOTSA around 6:40, and CSNY around 7:40).

On the second day, Neil Young, Elvis Costello, MMJ, Jenny Lewis and others performed The Velvet Underground's "Oh! Sweet Nuthin" as a tribute to Lou Reed (who passed away earlier in the day). Tom Waits also performed his first concert in five years, and was joined by Primus' Les Claypool on upright bass. His set, along with the Lou Reed tribute, can be watched below.

Crosby Stills & Nash

Clearly two shows in NYC aren't enough for Crosby, Stills & Nash, who have expanded their their previously announced Beacon Theater shows from two to four. Thought tickets are still available for both Beacon Theater dates on October 16th and October 17th, look for the band to play the same space on 10/19 and 10/20. Tickets go on sale on Friday (8/10) at 11AM.

All updated CSN dates are below, along with a couple CSN videos including a collaboration with David Gilmour on the Pink Floyd classic "Shine On You Crazy Diamond."

An updated list of CSN dates below...

Crosby, Stills and Nash have an extensive amount of upcoming international tour dates for 2012, including a Northeast run in June which includes dates in New York, Connecticut and New Jersey. None of those shows are in NYC but a few of the NJ shows come pretty close.

Tickets for the 6/26 and 6/27 Wellmont shows go on sale Friday (3/23) at noon. Ticket info for the other shows is not available yet. All dates are listed below.

Neil Young & Crazy Horse - Americana

In related news, Neil Young, who is not currently acting as a member of CSN(Y), he recently announced the release of Americana (due out June 5), his first album with Crazy Horse members since 2003's Greendale and first with the full band (Billy Talbot, Ralph Molina and Frank "Poncho" Sampedro) since 1996's Broken Arrow. That's the artwork above. The album features reinterpretations of traditional American folk songs including "This Land Is Your Land," "Oh Susannah," "Clementine," "High Flyin' Bird," and "She'll Be Comin' Round The Mountain." A press release explains the album's concept:

"What ties these songs together is the fact that while they may represent an America that may no longer exist," says a press release announcing the new album."The emotions and scenarios behind these songs still resonate with what's going on in the country today with equal, if not greater impact nearly 200 years later. The lyrics reflect the same concerns and are still remarkably meaningful to a society going through economic and cultural upheaval, especially during an election year. They are just as poignant and powerful today as the day they were written."
Rolling Stone mentions that though Neil Young and Crazy Horse performed live for the first time since 2004 last month at a Paul McCartney tribute in LA (they played "I Saw Her Standing There"), they have no touring plans. Check out the tracklist below.

In more related news, that Buffalo Springfield tour is apparently not happening any time soon.

Buffalo Springfield at Bonnaroo (via WNCX)
Buffalo Springfield

Crosby, Stills and Nash's previously mentioned show at Beacon Theatre is sold out. They've since added a second date the next night (8/31) at the same venue which still has tickets available. They also have a show coming up in Mountain View, CA with Jackson Browne, Bonnie Raitt, Jason Mraz, The Doobie Brothers, Tom Morello and others to support disaster relief efforts.

Buffalo Springfield (Furay, Stills and Young) went on their first (short) tour since 1968 leading up to a headlining slot at Bonnaroo this year. They told Rolling Stone they'd do a 30-date tour in the fall which would hit LA, NYC, and other cities. The tour, which was still never officially announced, is now postponed until 2012. According to a post on guitarist Richie Furay's facebook:

"For those of you getting excited about the Buffalo Springfield fall tour - word has just come to me that it has been moved to the first of next year," he wrote. "I'm not going to spend a lot time here with details as you speculate among yourselves - there's nothing to speculate about, the tour has simply been moved."
Meanwhile, Neil Young wants to work with Justin Vernon. Though the serial-collaborator may be on the verge of slowing down:
"I think the easiest way to explain it is that before, when I had other jobs or whatever, all I ever wanted to do was play music all of the time. So now whenever anything comes along - a Peter Gabriel cover, or recording Hadestown with Anaïs, it's like yes! Of course! And then you get tired, and you think, 'Well, I'd better say no to everything from now on.' But then the Kanye thing happens. Or ... Neil Young called two days ago, and I'm almost like: 'Oh fuck,' because whatever he's going to say I'm going to want to deal with, you know?"
Maybe Neil will give Justin a break and collaborate with Taylor Swift, who he is reportedly a fan of, instead.

Updated CSN dates (all three of them) below...

The disc "traces the astonishing musical journey of Neil Young from the day he first heard Elvis to his most recent offerings". Check out a clip from that DVD, alongside all Buffalo Springfield & Crosby-Nash dates, below...

Bruce Springsteen & Tom Morello @ MSG (BMoreSweet)
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

U2 closed the second night of the MSG Rock & Roll Hall of Fame shows on October 30th. At the first (10/29), it was Bruce Springsteen & Billy Joel (before one big group sing on Jackie Wilson's "Higher and Higher")...

After "Badlands" much of the drained audience began leaving and then rushed back to their seats when Billy Joel sat down at the piano and launched into "You May Be Right," "Only The Good Die Young" and "New York State Of Mind." (The pair were uniting the kindred spirits of New Jersey and Long Island, Springsteen explained.) "Higher and Higher" wrapped up the night. The official set list had the show ending at 11:36:55 (yes, they thought they had it down to the exact second), but the final notes rang out at 1:31 a.m. Six straight hours of music, and that was just the first of two nights. [Rolling Stone]
Bruce was actually there both nights (one of many possibly "filling in" for Eric Clapton, who canceled last minute on the second). Those in attendence on the 30th got to see U2, Bruce Springsteen and Patti Smith sing together on "Because the Night." (And U2 + Mick Jagger (another unannounced guest) + Fergie + Will.i.am sing "Gimme Shelter"...). Ray Davies, Lou Reed, and Ozzy Osbourne all performed with Metallica. Many played with Stevie Wonder. Full setlists below.

HBO will be airing four hours of highlights on Thanksgiving weekend.
(November 29th at 8PM ET).

Bruce's current tour wraps up November 22nd in Buffalo. He was at Giants Stadium earlier this fall, playing the last concerts ever there. U2 also played the venue for two nights in September, and will be back in Jersey in 2010 as part of their just-announced tour.

Set lists for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame shows are below...

Mutek banner in Montreal - May 27, 2009 (bneely)

Mutek, the electronic music festival celebrating its tenth year, is currently underway in Montreal. The five-day fest runs to Sunday, May 31st, and it's streaming online.

Tickets are still on sale.

Speaking of parties up North this summer... three other biggies are Ottawa Bluesfest (July 8th-19th), Vancouver Folk Music Festival (July 17-19th) and Calgary Folk Music Festival (July 23rd-26th). Each of those suitably transcend the "blues" and "folk" labels, hosting bands like The Dead Weather and Yeah Yeah Yeahs (in Ottawa), The Weakerthans and Rock Plaza Central (in Vancouver), and The Decemberists, Apostle of Hustle, Kid Koala and Akron/Family (in Calgary). Full lineup for the Calgary Fest (Ottawa in particular is much too massive to post) and ticket info below.
