As always, there's a ton of good electronic music to experience live in NYC, including two great shows tonight (2/26). We don't get a chance to post about all of it, so here's a roundup of some good upcoming shows that we haven't talked about yet.
One of tonight's shows is Output's weekly INPUT party, headlined in the man room by Detroit house vet MK. Joining him are Detroit techno originator Kevin Saunderson and Justin Miller. In the venue's Panther Room it's LA-via-DC duo Nadastrom (aka Dave Nada and Matt Nordstrom), who just released their self-titled debut album on Friends of Friends. Listen to "House Shoes" (ft. Nina K) from that album below. Tickets are available.
Also tonight at Verboten it's a stacked lineup with Sweater Beats (who opened for Chance the Rapper in NYC two nights ago), Drake remixer Kastle, and the NYC debut of LA duo Vindata. Tickets are available.
Moving on from tonight, Paris/Berlin producer Rone returned earlier this month with the followup to 2012's Tohu Bohu. It's called Creatures and it's out now on InFiné. You an watch the animated video for its song "Sing Song" below.
Rone has dates coming up, including a US release party for the album on May 29 at Good Room in NYC with solid local support from FaltyDL. Tickets for that show are on sale now. All dates at his website.
Also at Good Room soon is a FIXED party on March 20 with Aeroplane and Fort Romeau. Tickets are on sale. Fort Romeau is releasing a new album called Insides on March 31 via Ghostly, and he just put out the video for one of its songs, "Not A Word," a collaboration with New Jackson. Watch below.
There's another FIXED party at Good Room on March 14 with Tensnake. Tickets are on sale.

There's a good electronic show much sooner at Baby's on Friday (2/27) with Brooklyn producer Obey City. It's a release party for his just-released Merlot Sounds EP on LuckyMe, which you can watch a video from below. The party is free with RSVP, and Photay opens.

DOWNLOAD: Flying Lotus - 3 non-album tracks (ZIP)
That's part of a larger string of dates (including Coachella in April) that lead up to his new album, Cosmogramma, which comes out May 4th on Warp.
The spirit of his famed aunt, Alice Coltrane permeates the record, notably in the powerful collaborations with relative Ravi Coltrane, bass virtuoso Thundercat and the brilliant harp prodigy, Rebekah Raff.The label has put up three recent non-album tracks from Flying Lotus, which you can grab above.
Certainly these are further reaches into a musical space that Flying Lotus had hitherto been exploring, however other collaborators such as Erykah Badu and Outkast string arranger Miguel Atwood-Ferguson and guest vocalists Thom Yorke and a returning Laura Darlington (featured on Los Angeles' epic closing track 'Inifinitum') help deliver Cosmogramma to dizzying new heights. [Warp]
He'll also be at SXSW for the Warp showcase Wednesday, March 17th at the Phoenix with labelmates Hudson Mohawke, Born Ruffians, Nice Nice, Pivot and Eskmo. Nice Nice (Portland's Jason Buehler and Mark Shiraz) are getting their record Extra Wow released by the label on April 6th. The trippy video for their song "Everything Falling Apart" and tour dates are below.
