Stranger Cat at Glasslands earlier this month (more by Ryan Muir)
Stranger Cat

Browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows. Here are some highlights...

Kanye West, A Tribe Called Quest @ Madison Square Garden
Kanye's got two of the biggest, if not the biggest, rap albums of the current decade under his belt, and an elaborate stage show to deliver the material live. This show, the last on his NYC run, is doubly special because it's the second of A Tribe Called Quest's two "final" shows.

Caspian, 65daysofstatic, The World is a Beautiful Place & I'm No Longer Afraid To Die @ Bowery Ballroom
This epically atmospheric tour descends upon NYC tonight with Caspian's powerful post rock, 65daysofstatic who put a synth-rock spin on the genre, and TWIABP who make multi-layered emo.

Lou Reed Tribute w/ Arto Lindsay, Ivan Julian, Lenny Kaye, mems of TVTOR & more @ Bowery Electric
This huge Lou Reed tribute in a tiny room features many many musicians, including no wave legend Arto Lindsay, Voidoids guitarist Ivan Julian, Patti Smith Band guitarist Lenny Kaye, TV on the Radio's Kyp Malone and Tunde Adebimpe, Lou Reed/Laurie Anderson/Marc Ribot collaborator Shahzad Ismaily, Light Asylum's Shannon Funchess, Grooms' Travis Johnson, People Get Ready's Steven Reker, The Vaccines' Justin Hayward-Young, Caged Animals, Drowners, Jeffrey Lewis, Kirin J. Callinan, Phantom Family Halo, Sam Mickens, and even more.

Weezer, Elliot & the Ghost @ The Paramount
It may have been quite a while since Weezer released a good album, but they still have fun live shows and it's always a treat when you get to hear those old favorites. They're only doing a few dates this month, and this Long Island show is the closest they'll get to NYC.

Overkill, Kreator @ Stage 48
German thrash legends Kreator and NY thrash legends Overkill play two NYC shows at Stage 48 together this weekend, this being the second. Read our recent interview with Overkill.

Magmana, Glass Ghost, Stranger Cat @ Glasslands
Sharon Van Etten/Sufjan Stevens collaborator Cat Martino recently began working as Stranger Cat, a more electronic-tinged project than her other work, but still one with her knack for art pop dynamics and great songwriting.

S O H N, Empress Of, Daniel James @ Mercury Lounge
SOHN recently signed to 4AD and makes the kind of indie/R&B that's been in style lately, and Empress Of isn't on 4AD, but her brand of art pop is not too far removed from another artist currently on that label, St. Vincent. This is their first of 2 NYC shows this week.

TOO GAY FOR BROOKLYN: An Evening of Cabaret with Julie Klausner @ Joe's Pub
Writer/comedian Julie Klausner is in the midst of her 5-night TOO GAY FOR BROOKLYN run at Joe's Pub, where she promises to "sing some goddamn songs." This is night 3.

Comedy Night w/ Hannibal Buress @ The Knit
Big league comedy talent (Chris Rock, Louis CK, etc) show up regularly (and unannounced) for Hannibal's very popular free comedy show at Knitting Factory's front bar. Get there early.

Some other good local shows tonight:
* Bueno, Killer Bob, Bodyparts, Friend Roulette @ Muchmore's
* Zebu, Guerilla Toss, Blanche Blanche, Fat Creeps @ Death By Audio
* The Beets, Happy Jawbone Family Band, Judy Blooms @ Shea Stadium

Bleeding Rainbow at Knitting Factory in 2012 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Bleeding Rainbow

Philly shoegazers Bleeding Rainbow (who we can expect a new album from soon) are wrapping up their tour with Fat Creeps this week, and as discussed, that tour brings them to NYC for a show at Mercury Lounge on Friday (7/5), a good post-4th of July option for those sticking around NYC. Tickets for the Mercury Lounge show are still available. Updated dates are listed below.

Meanwhile, if you're looking for a good option on the Fourth, Bleeding Rainbow will play a hometown festival in Philly, the two-venue-wide Buckfest. Bleeding Rainbow play the Golden Tea House with Screaming Females, Swearin', Radiator Hospital and more. That show starts at 6 PM, and admission is only $5-7.

Radiator Hospital at 285 Kent in April (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Radiator Hospital

Radiator Hospital is the project of Sam Cook-Parrott, who you may recognize as the bassist in Waxahatchee's live band and backup vocalist on "Peace and Quiet" from her album, Cerulean Salt. His new album, Something Wild is out now via Salinas and features contributions from many of his friends, including Swearin' members Allison Crutchfield, Kyle Gilbride, and Jeff Bolt. If you're into Swearin' and Waxahatchee, you'll likely enjoy Radiator Hospital; he's got a similar knack for raw, honest pop punk and the ability to ease into unpolished bedroom folk.

The whole album is great, but the real standout is the fourth track, "Our Song," a scrappy emo anthem with quotable lyric after quotable lyric and just the right amount of sap. He lets out vulnerable lines like "You won't get off that easy, no don't say you love me when you know you don't" and "I just hope that he loves you like I never could do, and you like what you found," just to name a couple. But by the end of the song the music cuts and he asserts, "When you call your mom back tell her that I'm the one leaving." And the band comes back in sounding just a bit more triumphant than before.

Radiator Hospital has a few other upcoming hometown Philly shows, including Sunday (7/7) at Hausu and one with Joyce Manor in August (tickets) right before Joyce Manor play CT with Ceremony and House of Vans with Kid Dynamite, Red Hare, and Swearin' (free with RSVP).

Stream Radiator Hospital's new album below, and download it (name your price) at bandcamp.

Sleepies at Glasslands in January (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Sleepies

Brooklyn punks Sleepies play locally a lot, and they've got more hometown shows coming up with some pretty great lineups. This Tuesday (4/23) at Death by Audio, you can catch them opening for the Merge-signed Barren Girls on their previously announced tour (which also hits Cake Shop on Wednesday with Weird Womb and Prima). Advaeta is on the DBA show too. $7 gets you in at the door.

Sleepies will return to that venue on May 11 to join the previously announced lineup of Fat Creeps, Turnip King, and Zebu. Admission is $7 at the door. Both Turnip King and Fat Creeps have other upcoming NYC shows too.

Sleepies released their newest album, Weird Wild World, back in 2012 via Godmode (part of the Frenchkiss Label Group). It was produced by Ben Greenberg of fellow Brooklyn punks The Men, and along with that band and Nude Beach (who Sleepies have played with), Weird Wild World is one of the better representations of Brooklyn's current punk 'n' roll scene. The album is loaded with memorable tracks that see singer Thomas Seely snarling over huge, brash guitars, sounding fiercely sarcastic when delivering lines like "I take this all VERY seriously." But tracks like "Waste Water" prove they work in calmer settings, too.

You can stream the entire album on Noisey. Check out the music video for "Terra Firma," a live video of the band playing "Setbacks" at Death by Audio, and a stream of "Seriously," below.

Bleeding Rainbow at Knitting Factory in 2012 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Bleeding Rainbow

Philly shoegazers Bleeding Rainbow, who released the impressive Yeah Right earlier this year, and Boston indie rockers Fat Creeps, who are working on their debut album this year, are heading out on a tour together this summer. It kicks off in Baltimore in late June and culminates in NYC on July 5 at Mercury Lounge. Tickets for the NYC show go on sale today (4/19) at noon.

You won't have to wait that long to catch Fat Creeps in NYC though. As mentioned they're playing with Turnip King at Death by Audio on May 11. Zebu, who Fat Creeps did a split with, are on that show too.

All dates for Bleeding Rainbow and Fat Creeps, along with song streams, are listed below...

Turnip King

Hailing from the Long Island village of Sea Cliff, Turnip King make indie rock the old fashioned way, owing much to early '90s acts like Helium, Bettie Serveert and Eric's Trip. The band's new EP, Moon Landing?, is a nice melding of the beautiful and dissonant, and will be out on cassette and digital on May 28. We've got the premiere of "Rooms/Fleece" from it in this post.

Turnip King have a couple local shows coming up: April 26 at Big Snow Buffalo Lodge with Girl Toy; and May 11 at Death by Audio w/ Fat Creeps (whose debut album will be out this year). Those dates are listed below.

Fat Creeps in the studio
Fat Creeps

Boston's Fat Creeps released their debut EP last year and they're now in the studio, halfway done with their first full length. The band recently revealed two tracks, "Dad Weed" and "Daydreaming," which will appear on the album, as well as their split with Zebu. The songs pick up where the EP left off with rollicking guitar and a lazy Sunday drawl from the band's two singers. You can stream both tracks below.

Fat Creeps are playing some Northeast shows this winter, including a 'Party Weekend' with Philly shitgaze punks Slutever in Brooklyn, NY and Providence, RI this February. The Brooklyn show happens on February 9 at Death by Audio and Mannequin Pussy is also on that bill. Admission is $7 at the door.

All dates for Fat Creeps and Slutever, those song streams, and the 'Party Weekend' flyer below...

Fat Creeps

Boston's Fat Creeps have been playing around their hometown a bunch since forming in 2011, and this month they're set to kick off their first-ever tour, which brings them for a quick four-date trek around the Northeast. That tour culminates in NYC with a show on September 30 at Cake Shop with Old Monk, The Blue Dress, and Other Factors. Admission is $7 at the door. All dates are listed below.

Fat Creeps released their debut EP last month, which you can stream below or purchase for $5 at bandcamp. It opens with "Secrets," a rocker indebted to early riot grrrl and Kim Gordon, but after that the EP continues in a less heavy manner, playing indie rock the way it sounded on college radio stations about two decades ago. It's an enjoyable listen and should appeal to fans of likeminded '90s throwbackers Dum Dum Girls, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, and other pieces of the Slumberland roster.

A list of all dates and the EP stream are below.
