Oddisee

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

Oddisee, OSHUN, Tunji Ige @ Baby's All Right
This is the next BrooklynVegan-curated installment of Red Bull Sound Select, and needless to say, we're very excited about this lineup. Oddisee had one of our favorite indie-rap albums of last year with The Good Fight, newcomers OSHUN put out the very promising (and deeply impactful) ASASE YAA mixtape, and Philly raper Tunji Ige got a profile boost thanks to his appearance on Christine & the Queens' album. The show is $3 at the door with RSVP or $10 without, and either way entry is first come, first served. Doors at 7 PM. Hope to see you there?

Majical Cloudz, She-Devils @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Two Montreal duo hit Brooklyn tonight: Majical Clouds with their deeply emotional pop; and She-Devils who repurpose '50s/'60s pop into modern sounds.

Brian Fallon (of The Gaslight Anthem) @ The Studio at Webster Hall
Gaslight Anthem frontman Brian Fallon is planning a solo album for this year, and while it's not out yet, early singles suggest it's up a similar alley to Gaslight's slowed-down Get Hurt. Tonight's show is sold out, but Brian plays a larger NYC show in March.

Holy Holy @ Highline Ballroom
Longtime David Bowie collaborator Tony Visconti's band with Spiders From Mars drummer Woody Woodmansey, Holy Holy, just played Highline Ballroom on Bowie's birthday, three days before the legendary musician sadly passed away. Now they'll pay tribute to him once again.

Nicholas Nicholas, CVS At Night, Street Rules, Drawing Boards @ Palisades
Show up early at this show tonight to catch a '90s indie rock-loving Drawing Boards, featuring members of Dirty on Purpose, Sisters, TEEN, and Darlings.

Tindersticks 'The Waiting Room' screening @ Rough Trade
Tindersticks new album, The Waiting Room, is also a full-length film featuring segments directed by Claire Denis, Christoph Girardet, Pierre Vinour, and more. The film makes it's world premiere at this screening which is followed by a Q&A with Tindersticks frontman Stuart Staples. To attend, you need to buy a copy of the new album at Rough Trade.

Steve Earle, John Doe @ City Winery
Steve Earle is a consummate singer-songwriter and storyteller and is always worth seeing, especially in an intimate setting like this. Making this even better: X singer/guitarist John Doe.

Cake Shop Comedy @ Cake Shop
If you miss Big Terrific and Hannibal Buress' Sunday night show at Knit, and are looking for a new free, weekly comedy show that happens in a rock club and sometimes has big name talent stop by unexpectedly, "Cake Shop Comedy" might do the trick. Tonight continues Jo Firestone's residency and features guests Doug Smith, Rob Haze, Giulia Rozzi, Dan Soder and more.

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

Deerhunter

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

Deerhunter, Atlas Sound @ Irving Plaza
Deerhunter's new album has them returning to the dream/psychedelic pop sounds of Halcyon Digest after a trip into rawer garage rock territory on Monomania. Tonight's their second of three NYC shows in support of it, and we're proudly presenting this one. Deerhunter co-frontman Bradford Cox's great solo project Atlas Sound opens.

Moon Diagrams (DJ Set) @ Elvis Guesthouse (Deerhunter Afterparty)
After the Deerhunter show, keep the part going with drummer Moses Archuleta's (aka Moon Diagrams) DJ set afterparty at Elvis Guesthouse.

Dinosaur Jr. @ Bowery Ballroom
One of the quintessential American indie rock bands, Dinosaur Jr. celebrate their 30th anniversary with seven shows at Bowery Ballroom. Each night they're playing their debut album in full with an additional set filled with special guests...who have turned out to be pretty special so far. Who will show up tonight?

75 Dollar Bill, Thalia Zedek, @ Union Pool
Thalia Zedek, an indie rock vet of such bands as Live Skull and Come, guested at Dinosaur Jr's show on Monday night and has been added to this show tonight. Headlining are duo 75 Dollar Bill whose music pulls equally from the blues and Eastern raga. Their Wooden Bag EP came out earlier this year via Other Music.

Evan Dando, Ben Seretan @ Knitting Factory
The Lemonheads' Evan Dando, who seems to have his act back together after some spotty times a few years back, and is currently playing shows with a band that feature's Come's Chris Brokaw on guitar and Jen Turner of Inner on bass.

Okokon, William Basinski, Bladerunner (ft. Darkside, Arto Lindsay, ec) @ Trans-Pecos
Ambient great William Basinski has been extremely prolific since beginning to release music in the late '90s (though he started recording much earlier than that), and most recently put out Cascade this year. He plays the opening night of Nicolas Jaar's label Other People's residency at Trans-Pecos tonight. Nicolas, his Darkside bandmate Dave Harrington, no wave icon Arto Lindsay and more play a live improv set as Bladerunner, and Other People signee Okokon plays as well.

Trakk (Peter Negroponte, Tim Dahl, Andrew Hock), Justin Frye (Mem.PC Worship) Solo Project, Weasel Walter & Chris Pitsiokos Duo, Leila Bordreauil & Tamio Shirashi Duo @ Trans-Pecos
At the same time as the Other Peopl show, Andrew Hock presents this show which is stacked with quality experimental musicians.

Tygapaw (DJ), Diamond Terrifier/M.Beharie/Don De Vore, Richard Gamble, Lamin Fofana, Scott Murakam @ Trans Pecos (midnight)
Whichever Trans-Pecos show you decide on tonight, you can hang around for the midnight show which also has an awesome/diverse/out-there lineup.

'BET Music Matters' w/ Lion Babe & more @ S.O.B.'s
NYC duo Lion Babe are releasing their debut album this January, and going by the three singles they've put out, it's looking like it'll be very diverse. They tackle '70s-style funk/disco, stomping R&B that Janelle Monae would be proud of, and syrupy neo-soul.

Emily Yacina, Small Wonder, Swoon Lake, Aviva Skye @ Palisades
This is a good bill of local DIY pop, with Alex G collaborator Emily Yacina, Epoch member Small Wonder, and more.

Sweden Makes Music feat. Zhala, XOV, Duvchi, Silvana Imam, Andre Laos @ Baby's All Right
The third annual "Sweden Makes Music" show is being presented by The Consulate General of Sweden in New York and Export Music Sweden, and is a showcase features a host of Swedish pop acts. Headliner this year is Zhala, who released her self-titled debut album earlier this year via Konichiwa, the label run by Robyn. Free with RSVP.

Darwin Deez, Charly Bliss, Las Rosas @ Rough Trade
Darwin Deez may have a quirky fashion sense, but his heartfelt guitar pop is pretty universal. Third album Double Down, which was released earlier this year, is another winner.

Cake Shop Comedy @ Cake Shop
If you miss Big Terrific and Hannibal Buress' Sunday night show at Knit, and are looking for a new free, weekly comedy show that happens in a rock club and sometimes has big name talent stop by unexpectedly, "Cake Shop Comedy" might do the trick.

Night Train w/ Wyatt Cenac @ Littlefield
After years of being merely a great live show, Wyatt Cenac is turning "Night Train" into a web series. Tonight features two tapings: the early with Janeane Garofalo, Jen Kirkman, Larry Murphy, Clark Jones, and Natasha Muse; and the late show is with Brooke Van Poppelen, Dan Soder, Janelle James, Damien Lemon, and more. Both are sold out.

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

It's Fool's Gold Records' big annual outdoor daytime Labor Day show, and the lineup is stacked as usual. Meek Mill's been having quite the year, as has UK grime staple Skepta. A-Trak and Flatbush Zombies are always a good time, special guests are promised, and way more.

John McCauley (Deer Tick), Frances Quinlan (Hop Along) @ City Winery

Tamaryn at Levitation fest 2015

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

Tamaryn, Samantha Urbani @ Le Poisson Rouge
Tamaryn went from gothy shoegaze to gothy, shoegazy pop (there's a difference) on her new terrific album, Cranekiss. Tonight's the record release show with onetime Friends singer Samantha Urbani opening.

Deradoorian, Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe, Image Man @ Trans-Pecos
Deradoorian's new album is a wild ride. It pulls sounds from all over the globe, it's part psych, part prog, and always strangely accessible. Tonight's her first of two NYC shows this weekend.

So Hideous, Set and Setting, North, Bereft, Sangharsha @ Saint Vitus
So Hideous' upcoming album puts screamo, post-rock, and atmospheric black metal in a blender, and adds a noticeable modern classical influence courtesy of a 30-piece orchestra. Their tour with the similarly heavy/atmospheric Set and Setting hits NYC tonight.

Nicki Bluhm & The Gramblers, Andrew Combs @ Bowery Ballroom
For fans of country that shies away from top 40's slick sounds but remains accessible, both artists on this bill are worth catching.

Raven, Fate Breaks Dawn, METALFIER, Moniasin, Oblivion, Unholy Dispute @ Nihil Gallery
NWOBHM vets Raven have been going strong since dropping their debut single 35 years ago, and this year returned with their thirteenth album, ExtermiNation. Their last show here was loaded with classics.

Heems, Chris Rose (host), Seaton Smith, Dan Soder @ Livestream Public
Das Racist may be over but Heems is still making quality music on his own, most recently releasing the 2015 album Eat, Pray, Thug. Tonight he'll be interviewed (and he'll perform) at music-comedy "Late Night Basement" show taking place at this multi-use Bushwick events space.

Machinedrum, Dave Q, Alex English, Hiyawatha @ Slake
Production wiz Machinedrum is moving from NYC to Los Angeles. Come dance the night away at his farewell party.

Cold Fronts @ Fulton Stall Market
South Street Seaport's multi-use Fulton Stall Market is hosting free shows on Friday. The space is nice, there's bar and a secluded courtyard...worse ways to spend a couple hours after work on a Friday. Tonight's performers are Philly band Cold Fronts.

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...

Willie Nelson, Old Crow Medicine Show @ Prospect Park
It's a little sad Brooklyn isn't getting Waylon Jennings, who has been Willie's tourmate for much of the summer, but a chance to see him and hear his catalog of classic in the idylic splendour that is Prospect Park is pretty good on its own. Old Crow Medicine Show are nothing to sneeze at, either. This is the final show in the bandshell for Celebrate Brooklyn's 2015 season and is sold out.

Mötley Crüe, Alice Cooper @ Barclays Center
These veteran hard rockers are on their for-real farewell tour -- they actually signed contracts promising to not tour together as Mötley Crüe after this -- so if you've always wanted to see Vince, Nikki, Tommy and Mick, this is your last chance. In NYC, at least.

Hum, The Forms @ Saint Vitus
The great '90s band Hum are more influential ever, with their shoegaze/post-hardcore/alternative rock blend being imitated by countless younger bands at the moment. They're on tour now, and tonight's their first of two NYC shows. The Forms make it a pretty great double bill. Sold out.

Cherry Glazerr, Honduras, Haybaby @ Baby's All Right
This very young Los Angeles band are in town to open for Julian Casablancas + Voidz on Thursday at House of Vans but play this 18+ show tonight.

Roy Ayers, Operator Emz, Natasha Diggs, $Money Mike$ @ Marcus Garvey Park
Master of good vibes (literally), soul/jazz legend Roy Ayers will have everybody loving the sunshine tonight at this free SummerStage show.

Pharmakon, Damien Dubrovnik, Puce Mary, Varg @ Palisades
Three international experimental artists -- Denmark's Damien Dubrovnik (mem Lust for Youth) and Puce Mary, and Sweden's Varg -- are in the US for this weekend's Berserktown II fest in LA, but first they stop in NYC tonight. Local and likeminded artist Pharmakon headlines, making for a great bill all around.

Murphy's Law, Drunken Rampage, Caught In A Trap, Agitator @ Bowery Electric
Murphy's Law frontman Jimmy Gestapo turns 50 this year, and he and the band are celebrating with this hometown show tonight.

1994!, The Beds, Entia, Clean Girls @ Shea Stadium
Before the "emo revival" broke on a more mainstream level, one of the bands bringing back '90s-emo was the perfectly named 1994! who mixed noise with Kinsella-style riffs. They haven't played NYC in a while, but they're back tonight with The Beds, the noise punk band from another emo revival OG, John Galm (Snowing, Street Smart Cyclist).

Gravehill, Ghoulgotha, Horrendous, Mutant Supremacy @ Acheron
It's a great night of death metal at the Acheron with Dark Descent labelmates Gravehill, Ghoulgotha and Horrendous, plus local support from Mutant Supremacy.

'Labyrinth' screening w/ Charly Bliss @ McCarren Park
Where did the summer go? This is the final SummerScreen of the summer, an audience pick (you'll be seeing Jim Henson's fantasy Labyrinth, starring David Bowie) and punky pop act Charly Bliss will play before the movie. 6 PM.

Aparna Nancherla, Dan Soder, Lil Freckles, Naomi Ekperigin, Cynthia Kaplan @ Littlefield
The Woodstock Comedy Festival is presenting this benefit for the Family of Woodstock women's shelter that features a great lineup of comedians. Get reduced admission when you donate a toiletry item.

Podfest

The United States is rife with three things; assholes, podcasts, and assholes with podcasts. For me, podcasts are an unnavigable medium because anybody with a computer and 1/8th of a normal sized human brain can produce a podcast. Don't get me wrong; there are some incredible podcasts out there and the world is taking notice. Julie Klausner's podcast How Was Your Week has reached an almost legendary status and even got a glowing write-up in the Times recently. Marc Maron's WTF podcast basically set the standard for what constitutes a quality podcast. Greg Proops, Dave Hill, and Doug Benson also all have wonderful podcasts. And yet, the only reason I know of and can vouch for the quality of these podcasts and the people behind them is because I was a huge fan of these people in a pre-podcast world.

NYC is an epicenter of podcasting. If only there was a way where a guy like me could see, say, over 20 live podcasts on 2 stages over the course of 2 days consuming nearly 12 amazing hours of my life. Of wait. THERE IS! The naugural New York City Podcast Festival will take place at on 2 stages at The Pit on January 12th and January 13th 2013!! This show features a staggering line-up of talent including Dave Hill (Klaus Kinski favorite), Nick Turner (Klaus Kinski favorite), Kevin Allison, Wyatt Cenac, Gary Gulman, Craig Rowin, Jeff Rubin, Jermaine Fowler, Liam McEneaney, TV's Frank Conniff , Halley Feiffer, Julieanne Smolinski, Dan St. Germain, Sean Donnelly, Jackie Kashian, Myq Kaplan, MC Mr Napkins, Jared Logan, Anthony Antamanuik, Dan Soder, Mike Pace, and many others. This, my friends and enemies, is probably the greatest crash course in awesome podcasts on the planet and it's happening in our very own back yard. Keep your (dead) eyes on the NycPodFest Facebook Page for updates!

You can see the FULL SCHEDULE BELOW. You can buy tickets for individual shows, buy a festival pass, or you can win tickets right here! We have 5 SINGLE tickets to give away for Dave Hills Podcasting Incident with guest Gavin Mcinnes for 1/12 at 11pm. We also have 5 SINGLE tickets to give away for ThisMyShow on 1/13 at 7pm with guest Nick Turner. Contest deets are waaayyyyy down there...
