My Brightest Diamond / Batala @ Bowery Ballroom - 9/25/14
My Brightest Diamond released her fifth album, This Is My Hand, last week (9/16) via Asthmatic Kitty and brought her tour in support of it to NYC for a Bowery Ballroom show last night (9/25). For these shows, Shara Worden's joined by longtime bassist Nathan Lithgow and drummer Tim Mulvenna, and she also brought out past collaborator DM Stith for vocals on a bunch of songs, and started the show with The Hungry March Band on horns, and Batala, an "all women Afrobrazillian Samba Reggae Drum Band," playing in the crowd. (They also drummed in the crowd between sets.) The sort-of-Bon-Iver-related Doe Paoro opened the show.
More pictures of the whole show below...
Pop All Star Band @ Pop Montreal 2014 (via jackpineco)
Doe Paoro is now on the road with My Brightest Diamond, but recently finished a string of dates with Bon Iver's friends Sylvan Esso which started right after Doe opened for Bon Iver drummer S. Carey (and Califone) at Le Poisson Rouge. Doe released an EP called Ink on the Walls in April. It was produced at Bon Iver's studio by S. Carey and BJ Burton (who also produced Bon Iver's group Volcano Choir and Bon Iver/Gayngs related project Poliça). Note: Bon Iver, S. Carey, Gayngs, Polica, Sylvan Esso, Volcano Choir and Doe all share a management team (and a love for autotune). Doe is also playing CMJ.
S. Carey returns to NYC to open for American Football and Owen in October.
Volcano Choir have a new video for "Tiderays". Watch below.
Meanwhile, Bon Iver-esque NY, electro-singer-songwriter Elliot Moss (who also shares a manager with Bon Iver) just opened for Nada Surf at Rough Trade and has three more NYC shows scheduled in October: School Night at Brooklyn Bowl, CMJ at Rough Trade w/ Cold War Kids, and MHOW on 10/25 opening for Digitalism. One of his songs is embedded below.
Field Report, the project of Justin Vernon's old DeYarmond Edison bandmate Chris Porterfield, just shared the title track from his new album "Marigolden". Listen (via AV Club), below. Catch Field Report live on tour throughout the fall, starting at Bowery Electric in NYC on 9/30 (tickets). All dates are also listed again below.
Finally, we told you about the all star basketball game that was going down at Pop Montreal last week.That also resulted in a halftime show by the 'Pop All Star Band' - a "supergroup featuring Arcade Fire's Win and Will Butler, Bon Iver's Justin Vernon, and The Strokes' Nikolai Fraiture" (and A-Trak). They covered Phil Collins' "In the Air Tonight" and The White Stripes' "Seven Nation Army." Watch the videos with all the other stuff below...
The annual CMJ Music Marathon happens from October 21 - 25 at venues all over NYC. We've heard about a few bands who are heading here during that time (Slowdive, The Wytches, The Ocean Blue, Tom Vek and Courtney Barnett to name four) but CMJ threw an announcement party tonight (8/27) at Bowery Electric and the line-up is now out. In addition to those artists, The Kills, Bombay Bicycle Club, Protomartyr, Twin Peaks, White Fence, Shonen Knife OBN IIIs, Ultimate Painting, Yumi Zouma, and many more are amongst the 2014 CMJ performers. Badges are on sale now and the complete initial line-up is listed below...
Beverly at Cake Shop in April (more by Amanda Hatfield)
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Beverly, Future Punx, Wildhoney @ Baby's All Right
Beverly's debut album, Careers, is full of effortlessly catchy indie pop (think prime Kim Deal) and is celebrated tonight with help from new wave revivalists Future Punx and Wildhoney.
Say Anything, The Front Bottoms, The So So Glos, You Blew It! @ Best Buy Theater
Say Anything are out supporting their new album and they've brought some pretty excellent openers along: NJ lyrical folk/pop punks The Front Bottoms, NYC power poppy punks The So So Glos, and Florida '90s emo lovers You Blew It!.
Phony PPL, Toki Wright, Tracee Owo, Allan Kingdom @ 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.
The English Beat @ City Winery
If you aren't too concerned that Dave Wakeling is the only original member of the band, and don't mind hearing General Public songs too, you'll probably have a good time singing along to "Save it for Later," "Mirror in the Bathroom" and "Tenderness."
Rat Fist (mems No Age, Pissed Jeans), Pampers, Francisco Franco, Tom Blacklung @ Death by Audio
Rat Fist is the new band of No Age guitarist Randy Randall and Pissed Jeans drummer Sean McGuinness, and they make the kind of noisy racket you'd expect from members of No Age and Pissed Jeans. Tonight's their first of two NYC shows, both in tiny venues where stuff like this belongs.
A/JUS/TED, Dimitri From Paris, Pantha Du Prince (live), DJ Spoko @ MoMA PS1
As always, Warm Up brings tons of forward thinking electronic music (and some other stuff like rap, indie pop, etc) to MoMA PS1's courtyard for very hot, very popular all-day dance parties. Tonight's the first show of this year's series with a typically great and eclectic lineup.
Young Magic, Doe Paoro, Rioux, Doldrums (DJ set) @ Rough Trade
Young Magic are from Brooklyn but exist in a sexy dreamworld where Sade and the Cocteau Twins work on records together. Or something like that. Their new album, Breathing Statues, came out in May.
Sargeist, One Tall One Head, Typhus, Forteresse, Sacrament Ov Impurity @ Saint Vitus
Martyrdoom III, the third annual five-day metal festival at Brooklyn's Saint Vitus, is on day 2 with Finnish black metal greats Sargeist.
ONO, Obnox, Cloud Becomes Your Hand, The Dreebs @ Shea Stadium
Obnox is one of the many projects of Cleveland punk musician Lamont Thomas, but while he usually drums, for this one he takes the lead and brings elements of soul, R&B, hip hop and more into it too.
Shady Hawkins, Mannequin Pussy, Free Pizza, Acidosis @ Silent Barn
NYC punks Mannequin Pussy have been regulars on the local scene for a while now, but have just signed to Tiny Engines who are releasing their new album of whiplash punk.
Drive-By Truckers, The Hold Steady @ The Paramount
The Hold Steady and Drive-By Truckers both recently released new albums, and both will be on their own tours this summer. Their paths intersect for two co-headlining NY-area shows, this being the first.
Gameface, Restorations, Habits @ The Studio at Webster Hall
Gameface were one of the early/influential post-hardcore bands of Revelation Records back in the '90s, and now they're reunited and put out their first album since 2003 this year. Opening this show is great newer band Restorations.
Infest, Paint It Black, Replica, Ajax @ The Wick
Speaking of influential punk bands, powerviolence pioneers Infest are also reunited and on their second of two NYC shows tonight (their first ever here). Philly greats Paint It Black make this an unstoppable double bill for hardcore.
IIII, Highlife, Brian Degraw (DJ) @ Union Pool (Summer Thunder)
If you like drums, you'll want to hit Union Pool's weekly free Saturday outdoor party, today featuring IIII which is Hisham Akira Bharoocha(Soft Circle / Boredoms), Ryan Sawyer (Lonewolf), Brian Chase (Yeah Yeah Yeahs) and Ben Vida. Bands usually start around 4PM.
Azealia Banks @ Capitale
It's NYC Pride Week and part of the celebrations include tonight's show from Azealia Banks. Maybe she'll play stuff from her upcoming album (lol).
Luciano, Sandra St. Victor @ Prospect Park Bandshell
Reggae is the theme of this evening's Celebrate Brooklyn! concert, featuring roots worshiper Luciano and The Family Stand's Sandra Sat. Victor.
Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Stagnant Pools @ MHOW
Clap Your Hands Say Yeah may be missing much of the lineup they began with, and this once-buzzy band is buzzy no longer, but they do still make quality indie rock. Opening are Stagnant Pools who are a little shoegazy and also probably own the first two Strokes albums.
Del Close Marathon
It's Upright Citizens Brigade's annual three-day fest with over 420 comedy performances. A $30 wristband gets you into as many as you can muster.
Sam Sparro, Ultra Nat?, Kevin Aviance, Alfa Anderson, Luci Martin, Norma Jean Wright (ex-Chic) @ Central Park Summerstage
It's a big disco night at Summerstage bileld "Club Classics Live!" with a number of veterans.
Pearson Sound, Vissacoor, Teengirl Fantasy, Rrose, Sinjin Hawke, Aquarian @ 88 Palace
It's a big dance party night in Chinatown with this stacked Sick Magic-presented bill.
Jimmy Edgar, Lauren Flax, Braille @ Output (roof)
It's another afternoon (3 PM) dance party on the roof at Output, and a pretty good lineup all around.
Primus @ Stone Pony
Get your bass face ready because four-string wizard Les Claypool and the rest of the Primus crew are back in town for two area shows, this being the second.
For all of tonight's shows, and tomorrow's, check out our NYC concert calendar.
For laughs, check out the NYC Comedy calendar too.

Poster for Think of Me, screening Saturday, May 12
Starting on May 11 with This is What We Mean by Short Films, Rooftop Films will screen 23 feature films and 183 short films, including NY, US, and World Premieres. The films come from around the world, with off-beat and hilarious comedies, intimate and intense dramas, powerful and personal documentaries--all of which reflect Rooftop's focus on exciting, innovative, independent cinema. Most events include live music, filmmaker Q&As, special appearances by the films' casts and subjects, and after-parties with complementary drinks every weekend until Saturday, August 18...Rooftop Films starts it's Summer Series of pairing cool movies with cool music tonight (5/11) at Open Road Rooftop on the LES, with a program titled "This Is What We Mean By Short Films Opening Night" and musical guest Crinkes. It's sold out already, but you can get tickets to the Saturday night's (5/12) screening of Bryan Wizemann's Think of Me with musical guest Bird Courage.
...Along with their already outstanding venues spanning the roofs, parks, and piers of Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, and the Bronx, Rooftop Films is excited to screen at two new locations this year: Dekalb Market and MetroTech Commons. Located in the heart of downtown Brooklyn, the beautiful commons of MetroTech opened in 1992 and has become a preferred location for students, local residents and those employed in the nearby buildings to spend their free time. All screenings at MetroTech Commons are co-presented with the Downtown Brooklyn Partnership. Housed in a collection of salvaged shipping containers, Dekalb Market has become a new community destination in downtown Brooklyn and brings together Brooklyn's creative entrepreneurs in a community setting that include an incubator farm, an event and performance venue, and a collection of eateries and work-sell spaces.
While the music side of Rooftop Films is still being firmed up (Doe Paoro, Mutual Benefit and Softspot are the only other ones announced so far), the full film program has been announced and is listed below...

Angel Olsen @ Glasslands - 4/4/2012
Ryan managed to catch Com Truise AND Purity Ring, and still found time to catch three of the talented singer-songwriters playing Glasslands last night (4/4), one of whom is from Chicago and plays again in NYC this week. More of his pictures from Glasslands, below...
Angel Olsen at Glasslands in 2011 (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)
Chicago's Angel Olsen is in Brooklyn for two shows this week including Glasslands TONIGHT (4/4) with Sufjan/Sharon Van Etten collaborator Cat Martino, Doe Paoro , and Knox. Tickets for tonight's show are available.
Angel also plays another Brooklyn show at Littlefield on Sunday (4/8) with Companion, Emily Reo, and Alex Drewchin. Tickets for that show are on sale now.
Angel Olsen is working on a new album which will be out sometime this year on Bathetic, who released Strange Cacti on vinyl last year. You can stream a track from Strange Cacti at the Bathetic website or listen to the whole album on Spotify. Below, check out a solo performance of the song "Barrier of Bodies," which will "most likely be on her record to come." For her NYC shows, Angel will be joined by Emmet Kelly on bass, guitar, and vocals and guitarist Leroy Bach will also join them both at Glasslands tonight.
Speaking of Will Oldham collaborators, the mostly David Byrne-produced soundtrack for This Must Be The Place has finally been given a release date (4/23), which he and David Byrne contributed multiple songs to under the name The Pieces of Shit. Check out the track, "Open Up," by The Pieces of Shit below. Other contributors to the soundtrack include Jonsi & Alex, Iggy Pop, and Julia Kent (who plays Issue Project Room with Julia Holter during Unsound later this month).
Will Oldham also wrote a book called Will Oldham on Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, which according to the NYTimes, "answers nearly every question one might wish to ask about his prolific output." Here's what he has to say about the moniker Bonnie 'Prince' Billy:
"Bonnie Prince Billy is such a ridiculous name. It had no preconceptions to it; nobody could say what the music was going to be like on hearing the name. But it turned the music into an individual, which seemed to be what everyone -- the audience, or at least the people that I was forced to talk to about the music -- was seeking. They were seeking some sort of individual responsible for things, and I was just like, 'O.K. We'll make one up. One who doesn't really exist, and therefore I can continue to feel confident that there is no individual responsible for things, but you can think that there is one!'"Read more excerpts from the book at NYTimes.

Future Islands @ Bowery Ballroom
Released in October, Future Islands' third album, "On the Water," features cellos, violins and acoustic percussion -- along with background sounds captured outdoors at a North Carolina waterfront. The natural world also features heavily in the album's song titles, including "The Great Fire," "Give Us the Wind" and the title track.Future Islands are officially in their native Baltimore after concluding their US tour in support of Over The Water over the weekend. Falling toward the end of those dates was Bowery Ballroom on 12/1 which also featured tourmates Ed Schrader's Music Beat as well as Zomes. Pictures from that show are in this post.
Add to that songs such as "Before the Bridge" and "Tybee Island," and there seems to be an elemental theme. But Cashion says "On the Water" is not a concept record.
"This is a group of songs that work well together as an album," he says. "But there was no underlying concept we were discussing when we wrote it. I feel like it takes a certain kind of band to make a true concept record. I'm not sure we're that kind of band." [expressnightout]
Future Islands' US tour kicked off in late October and also included stops at Hopscotch, FYFest, and Fun Fun Fun Fest. The band has a couple days off now, but will play a pair of UK dates at the end of this week including ATP's Nightmare before Christmas. They'll then return to tour Europe in Feb/March next year.
In related news, Doe Paoro released a cover of Future Islands' "Little Dreamer" which you can stream, with all dates and more pics from Bowery, below...
