Flying Lotus @ T5 2012 (more by Sachyn Mital,)
Flying Lotus

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

Caveman, Icewater, Public Access T.V., Lily McQueen @ Baby's All Right
Part of Baby's All Right's one-year anniversary, Caveman will squeeze into this intimate show (for them), with an undercard of hotly-tipped local acts, including loved-by-UK-press Public Access TV. Sold out.

Endless Boogie @ Baby's All Right
If you still have energy, after Caveman stick around for Brooklyn's Endless Boogie. Their name suits them well -- they play a type of jammy, bluesy hard rock that truly is an...endless boogie.

Pond, Doctopus, Fascinator @ Bowery Ballroom
They may share members/ex-members with Tame Impala, but don't call Pond a side project. Some would argue they're better at the psych-rock game. (We like them both.) We're not sure when Pond's new album, Man, It Feels Like Space Again, will actually be released (it was supposed to be already) but you can probably catch songs from it tonight.

Black Francis @ Club Helsinki (Hudson, NY)
While the Pixies have been on the road a lot this year (with new music and a new bassist), frontman Black Francis is using the time they have off to revert to his solo career. He's been talking about a Frank Black & the Catholics boxset and recently put out an unheard demo, so maybe he'll revisit some tunes from that era tonight.

Buck Gooter, Zomes, Radio Shock, Florida, Jeremy Smoking @ Death By Audio
With a drum machine, guitar and netherworld vocals, Virgina primordial blues act Buck Gooter gets to the nitty gritty. Zomes, one half of whom is Lungfish guitarist Asa Osborne, are also on the bill.

La Hell Gang, ARP, Jefre Cantu-Ledesma @ Glasslands
The first of two Mexican Summer Records celebratory shows this week, tonight featuring Chile psych rock outfit La Hell Gang and local dreampoppers ARP. Lansing-Dreiden were originally supposed to headline but dropped off.

The Orwells, Skaters @ Irving Plaza
Chicago-area troublemakers The Orwells bring their beer-friendly party rock to town with fellow good time charlies, Skaters.

Minus the Bear, O'Brother @ Saint Vitus
For Minus the Bear's current tour, they're celebrating both a new compilation with b-sides from their past few releases and the tenth anniversary of the excellent They Make Beer Commercials Like This EP from their prime early 2000s era. So it'll be a good mix of the old favorites and some of the lesser heard stuff. Tonight's show is sold out, and they'll also hit the larger Gramercy Theatre on Friday.

Flying Lotus, Thundercat @ Terminal 5
Flying Lotus has always had a little jazz in his IDM, but he fully embraces the genre on the just-released You're Dead!. His bass wizard collaborator Thundercat opens and will presumably be joining FlyLo during his set too. Things should get wacky.

Il Sogno Del Marinaio (with Mike Watt), Overlake @ The Bell House
Mike Watt's a busy man, having been in Minutemen, fIREHOSE, The Stooges and more, and his current focus is his the trio Il Sogno Del Marinaio with Italian musicians Stefano Pilia and Andrea Belfi. Tonight they team with the shoegaze-ish Overlake, which makes for a good double bill.

Nothing Changes w/ Rakta, Ninos Du Brasil @ Home Sweet Home
Hospital Productions-signed Italian duo Ninos Du Brasil are in town, having opened for Merchandise last night, and they're sticking around for a smaller show tonight which is with Brazilian dark punks Rakta.

The Blow, Sadie Benning @ Union Pool
This is the third of The Blow's three Union Pool "unplugged" residency shows. Says Khaela: "These shows are a laboratory for working out new ways of performing electronic music live. We will be performing songs, just songs, from the extended Blow catalog." Ok then!

Nina Persson, Clam @ Webster Hall Marlin Room
Former Cardigans singer (and current NYC resident) Nina Persson released solo album Animal Heart earlier this year plays shows here and there, like tonight. NYC dance rock band Clam open and they're worth catching too. You can stream one of their tracks below.

Big Terrific @ Cameo
Max Silvestri hosts the free weekly comedy show in the back of Williamsburg's Lovin' Cup. No word on who's performing tonight, but Max usually lets us know via his Twitter.

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

Neil Gaiman, Amanda Palmer @ Town Hall
Amanda Palmer and her fiction-wrtier spouse Neil Gaiman return to NYC for An Evening with Neil Gaiman & Amanda Palmer, "an intimate night of spoken word, songs, stories, chats with the audience, and more than a few surprises." They do the same tomorrow as well.

Kayo Dot, Vaura, Psalm Zero @ 285 Kent
Tonight 285 Kent hosts an excellent triple bill of experimental metal from Kayo Dot, related band Vaura, and Extra Life/Castevet-related Psalm Zero.

Beach Fossils, Perfect Pussy, Habibi @ 285 Kent
Beach Fossils wrap up their fall tour with this hometown show, featuring a killer undercard of Perfect Pussy and Habibi.

Jonathan Richman, Hilton Valentine @ Bowery Ballroom
Modern Lover Jonathan Richman has been a continuously active solo artist for decades, and it's been a pretty regular thing that he comes by NYC to do a multi-night run here at least once a year. This is second of two Bowery Ballroom shows.

Bear Hands, Canon Logic, Dead Stars, Desert Sharks @ Brooklyn Night Bazaar
Brooklyn Night Bazaar is a destination spot on the weekends, offering microbrew beer, a variety of food, holiday shopping and free music -- this week from Bear Hands, '90s indie rock lovers Dead Stars and more. You can also play ping pong or black light minigolf. Free.

Grant Hart, Journalism, Little Racer @ Cake Shop
Grant Hart may be not as popular as his former Husker Du bandmate Bob Mould, but he's still got an active solo career as well, which included the release of this year's well-received The Argument.

Celestial Shore, Zula, Banned Books, Laser Background @ Shea Stadium
This is a solid local lineup, including mathy indie pop band Celestial Shore and psych-pop band Zula.

Ancient Sky, Little Gold, Florida, Giant Peach @ Death By Audio

Shannon and the Clams, Las Rosas @ Mercury Lounge

Slonk Donkerson, Butter The Children, Bluffing, Sunflower Bean @ Muchmore's
Muchmore's hosts a number of solid regulars on the local rock scene tonight, including the shoegazy Downtown-signed Butter the Children.

Dave Hill hosts this "incredible night of laughter, music and gunplay" featuring Bob's Burgers/Archer funnyman Jon Benjamin, Bridget Everett, Mike Bochetti, Patrick Salt Ryan, Sam Haft, Shaina Feinberg and Hill's own band, Valley Lodge.

Whores, Black Black Black, No Way @ Saint Vitus
Whores make heavy noise rock, and it makes sense that they're playing a place like Brooklyn's mostly-metal bar Saint Vitus, but these guys appeal to a non-metal crowd too, with hints of Unsane, and other similar bands.

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

Superchunk Mac/Florence & the Machine
Superchunk
Florence and the Machine

"The DeLuna Stage was set up on the beach, facing away from the Pensacola pier that stretches into the Gulf of Mexico. On the opposite side of the beach looking back was actually the Heritage Stage, a stage filled with the sounds of New Orleans jazz music. The quarters weren't as sprawling as Hangout [Festival in Alabama], but the Windcreek Stage location, in the adjacent parking lot, made for a much easier human traffic flow between the two primary stages. That concrete often kept the festival from feeling like it was intended, but its proximity also kept fans from missing anything from the weekend's largest acts.

Then, the setup allowed for unrestricted access to the ocean. So, you give and you take.

NBC Sports sponsored a "sports bar," lined with no fewer than 10 HD flat screens. The welcome addition allowed a region which loves college football to lounge near the beach and catch their favorite team on Saturday. Alabama's pay-per-view contest against Florida Atlantic was not carried, but most other national broadcasts were, including Auburn's near-miss against LSU." [Birmingham News]

Florida beach music festival, Deluna Fest, wrapped up its third year back on Sunday, 9/23. If you've been following along, you already saw a big set from the first day, the Bad Brains shots, Joy Formidable, and the rest of the pictures from the second day. Now here's our final set of pictures which include Bob Mould (who also played with the Foo Fighters the night before), the Corin Tucker Band (who then toured her way to NYC for two shows), The Wallflowers, Fitz & the Tantrums (who are on the soundtrack to the new movie "Butter"), Superchunk (whose frontman has a show coming up at Mercury Lounge), and Florence & the Machine. Check out the rest of the pictures and a Mould video, below...

Pearl Jam at Deluna Fest 2012
Deluna day 1

Over the two hours and 15 minutes that followed, [Pearl Jam] would play 28 songs, which included two encore breaks, that spanned 21 years and nine studio albums. Two of the band's most popular cover versions, "Interstellar Overdrive" by Pink Floyd and "Baba O'Riley" by The Who, were included, while Mike McCready took the second encore's final song, the oft unintelligible "Yellow Ledbetter" into a "Star Bangled Banner" guitar solo, a la Jimi Hendrix. The crowd was, as expected, one of the two biggest of the weekend... The band played seven of the 11 tracks from its legendary debut Ten, including: "Once," "Even Flow," "Alive," "Why Go," "Black," "Oceans" and "Porch." Vedder boasted of the band's terrific relationship with one another, one that has kept it in tact for more than two decades.

...the festival's most memorable moment came during Gaslight Anthem's Friday set. Lead singer Brian Fallon invited Eddie Vedder onstage, suggesting that anyone that came was there to work and there would be no "phoning it in." Vedder proceeded to perform Pearl Jam's "State of Love and Trust" with Gaslight Anthem... The early festival collaboration was its most talked about and its defining moment. -[al.com]

Of course, the third annual Deluna Festival in Pensacola, Florida wasn't just the Eddie Vedder/Pearl Jam show. The first day of the festival (9/21) also featured performances from Fishbone, Band of Skulls, Ben Folds Five (who played NYC recently and play Comic Con soon), Guided By Voices (whose members have an art show next week) and more. More pictures from the first day of Deluna 2012, below...

Weeze & Matt & Kim @ Deluna Fest
Deluna Festival
Deluna Festival

Do you think Matt & Kim ever get depressed? Like down-in-the-dumps, face-on-the-bathroom-tile, razor-to-the-wrist bummed? And do you think any of that anger is channeled into their music in ways not visibly noticed? Is that perma-simpleton-smile actually a front for an aryan-supremacy agenda spelled out in morse code via the band's shiny light show? Head to a New Year's Eve celebration at Hammerstein Ballroom with Super Mash Brothers to do some investigation and report back if you come across some leads. Tickets are on sale. All of their dates are listed below.

Matt & Kim was one of many artists to perform in Florida at Deluna Fest from 10/14 - 10/16, joining names like Ra Ra Riot, Stars, Ladytron, Girl Talk, Weezer, Cake and others. Belated pictures from the first day of that festival that Jane's Addiction also played, are in this post. Many more below.

Ra Ra Riot has been touring since Deluna. They don't have anything scheduled in NYC, but they will be on the road for a while and all of their dates are also listed below...

Talking HeadsTalking Heads

David Byrne is suing the governor of Florida, alleging that he used the Talking Heads' 1985 single "Road to Nowhere" without permission or proper licenses.

Byrne is seeking $1 million in damages from Gov. Charlie Crist, who's also Florida's former Attorney General, and his senatorial campaign for use of the song earlier this year in a website and YouTube ad attacking his then-Republican primary opponent, Marco Rubio. Crist has since changed his campaign and is running as an independent candidate. [Billboard]

Check out a recent interview with Byrne, in Guernica Magazine.

Floor at The Earl in Atlanta (4/3/10)
Floor

Floor is slow-thudding metal royalty... Know the following: South Florida is the asshole of the music world. It is almost impossible for a band to make it hailing from this sequestered swamp. But Steve Brooks and Anthony Vialon did it. For better or for worse, they trudged along with different drummers and made an honest stab (a refreshing stab if you will) at the burgeoning doom/sludge market of the early '90s. Bands will wear their loves on their sleeves, and the whole Black Sabbath thing is okay, but when you factor in geographical isolation receding into the "guitar bomb" and pop nuances into some real macho music, you know you have something special at hand...

And it is with great pride that I can say that I was there. There to witness the stacked amps and unrelenting fog machine as Churchill's Hideaway Pub got a taste of the building blocks it is built upon... [The show started with] Brooks and Vialon on double axes with founding drummer (and awesome local artist) Betty Monteavaro on drums for a solid half-hour set. Sludge mayhem that was as unpolished as what they committed to vinyl in the early '90s. Delicious and crucial. Followed by a second set featuring next-in-line drummer Jeff Sousa tearing through the No Idea Records maroon Dove LP. A highlight was most certainly their fogged-out rendition of "Namaste." And then, as the piece of resistance, was a short break followed by drummer Henry Wilson aiding the cause as the band ripped through the "full-length" album, opening with crowd pleaser "Scimitar" in its full guitar-bomb goodness. - [Miami New Times]

The above review comes from Floor's reunion show at Churchhill's Hideaway Pub in Miami on 3/27, one of a few shows that the band played as part of a celebration of the recent release of the Floor boxset (out now on Robotic Empire). Although, we don't have any pics from Miami, we do have shots from all of the others including Common Grounds in Gainesville, FL (4/2, care of Rich Gaccione) and TWO at The Earl in Atlanta (4/3 & 4/4, courtesy Rich Gaccione and Anthony Childs respectively). Pics from those show are below.

WAVVES @ Market Hotel in September (more by Leia Jospe)
WAVVES

WAVVES' last trip to NYC included a show at Santos and Market Hotel and a scuffle with a member of Black Lips.

On Tuesday, February 16th, WAVVES (Nathan and drummer Zach Hill) (UPDATE: We are told that Zach no longer plays in WAVVES) will return for a free show at Brooklyn Bowl (which is where one of three NYC Black Lips shows is happening in late March).

The previous (pre-Zach) drummer of WAVVES, Ryan Ulsh, has a hand in running Norfolk, VA's SHDWPLAY Records Showcase. The label brings its bands The Super Vacations (a garage rock outfit featuring Ryan), Sore Eros, PC Worship and Florida to Glasslands on Friday January 29th for a show presented by Other Music (who is giving away tix and vinyl, details below). The Super Vacations, PC Worship and Teeth Mountain play Market Hotel the next night. And the SHDWPLAY showcase is in Philly the next.

If you were at SXSW last year, WAVVES (and an anti-WAVVES shirt) were everywhere. They'll be at the Austin fest again this year too. A video of Nathan at SXSW 2009, "covering" "Barbie Girl" and more are below...
