Modern Baseball at BK Bazaar in September (more by Mimi Hong)
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Modern Baseball, Knuckle Puck, Foxing, Crying, Somos @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
This tour is loaded with cool stuff from the lyrical, youthful Modern Baseball, to the delicately arranged and cathartic Foxing, to the gameboy-fueled pop punks Crying, to guitar slingers Somos. This is the second of two NYC shows.
Tinashe, Main Girl @ Highline Ballroom
Tinashe's debut album, Aquarius, was one of the year's best alt-R&B records, and its placement on several year-end lists has been deserved. She was last in NYC for Power 105.1 Powerhouse but tonight she returns to headline her own show.
Cold Skin, Divorce Money, Outside World, Red Sea @ Silent Barn
This is a cool bill all around with Tampa's surfy hardcore band Cold Skin, Atlanta's tropical/synth poppy Red Sea, punky indie rockers Outside World, and Beach Fossils-related hardcore band Divorce Money.
yMusic, DM Stith, Battle Trance @ Baby's All Right
A few of the members of indie/classical group yMusic just wrapped up a BAM run backing Gabriel Kahane, and tonight they play their own show for the New Amsterdam Presents Winter Benefit. Also on the bill is DM Stith (who, like yMusic, has worked with Sufjan Stevens and My Brightest Diamond) and the sort-of tUnE-yArDs-related Battle Trance.
Wyatt Cenac @ Littlefield
It's a holiday edition Wyatt Cenac's weekly comedy show, with Ari Shaffir, Dan St. Germain, Jen Kirkman, and Adrienne Iapalucci on hand for good cheer.
Eugene Mirman, Janeane Garofalo, Jen Kirkman, Gary Gulman @ Union Hall
For another holiday comedy option within walking distance of Littlefield that ALSO features Jen Kirkman, stop by Union Hall for Mehran Khaghani's show -- the rest of the line-up is pretty great.

Brooklyn trio LODRO describe their sound as "neo-noir punk" and there's a definite grimey, bluesy sleaze running across the three songs they've posted on their Soundcloud. All three members -- Lesley Hann (formerly of Friends), Jeremy Cox, Jigmae Baer -- are also in Royal Baths. You can stream those tracks below.
LODRO's show count is still in the single digits, only having played their first show last month but they are gigging around a lot and there are two shows lined up soon. They're on the bill for Beach Fossils' sold-out show this Sunday (3/3) at 285 Kent with Chris Cohen and Divorce Money; they've recently been added to His Clancyness' show at Glasslands on March 10 (tickets) that also features Tweens and Basement Batman; and Shea Stadium on March 23 with Black Marble, Beliefs, and Night Visions.

Beach Fossils @ Bowery Ballroom, 2/23/2013
"Clash the Truth" came out only four days prior to the show, yet the lyrics were ingrained in the crowd's minds. In acknowledgment of the leak, Payseur jokingly remarked that he too heard the album before it came out.Beach Fossils played a sold-out Bowery Ballroom on Saturday (2/23), a record release show for the band's second album, Clash the Truth, which support from The Sleepies and Mr. Dream. If you went, how does Beach Fossils line-up compare to the old one with Cole from DIIV?
The show continued in the same vein, equal parts mosh pit and pleasant crowd work. When the encore came, the band played its most low-key song to date, "Sleep Apnea," during which drummer Tommy Lucas surprised the audience by stepping away from the drums and pulling out an alto saxophone for a solo. It was an incredible ten minutes that pulled the audience into a dreamlike trance that sobered them after 45 minutes of pulsating indie rock.
The band quickly fell back into its energetic swing, finishing the concert with "Daydream." Payseur instructed the crowd to freak out, and the audience zealously obliged, ending a thoroughly entertaining night. - [NYU News]
If you missed the Bowery show, Beach Fossils next NYC show is at 285 Kent on Sunday (3/3) with Chris Cohen, Divorce Money and LODRO. It's being billed as the Brooklyn record release show and tickets are still available. More photos from Bowery are below.
