"My neck hurts from head banging 2 hard at the marnie stern show last night" - Caroline
Marnie Stern @ The Wick
"When you are trying to measure your value as a human being based on what kind of coverage your album is getting, it's absurd. And when you play a show you are looking at the audience and thinking "there were more people last time - does that mean I'm less popular and my music sucks?" It's ridiculous and completely negates the whole experience for the people who are there to see you and you want to give a good show to. Right now, I'm in a really happy place when it comes to all of that stuff and appreciating everything. I guess I am proud of myself for sticking with it for so long." -Marnie Stern to the QuietusMarnie Stern, Hunters & Glockabelle helped kick off a weekend of rock at new Bushwick venue The Wick last night (5/8). Some pictures from the show are in this post. Catch Marnie, whose R rated stage banner is almost as great as her guitar playing, again tonight, Philly (at Johnny Brenda's with Mumblr & Joint Chiefs of Math). That's her only upcoming date at the moment.
Cloud Nothings at SS Coachella 2012 (more by Greg Cristman)
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Cloud Nothings, Ryley Walker @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Following 2012's drastically career changing Attack on Memory, Cloud Nothings have returned this year with a new album, Here and Nowhere Else, which like its predecessor pulls from punk, indie, post-hardcore and noise to unique and terrific results. Tonight their run with psych-folk guitarist Ryley Walker hits MHOW for their first of two sold-out NYC shows this week.
Yamantaka//Sonic Titan, Odonis Odonis, Sannhet @ Baby's All Right
It's a great and pretty diverse bill at Baby's tonight with theatrical prog/metal/pop rockers Yamantaka // Sonic Titan, their Canadian noise rock neighbors Odonis Odonis, and Brooklyn post-metal/post-rockers Sannhet.
Protomartyr, Spray Paint @ Cake Shop
Detroit's Protomartyr have a sense of urgency and anger that could've sprouted from somewhere like Manchester or Cleveland in 1979. The band's new album, Under Color of Official Right, is a real ripper that evokes more than cribs from the postpunk era. They were great at our SXSW day party and this is your first of two chances this weekend to see them with Austin's similarly spiky Spray Paint.
Small Black, Snowmine, Maria Minerva @ Bowery Ballroom
Brooklyn's synthpop band Small Black just released a new EP, Real People, via Jagjaguwar and tonight's show serves as both a celebration of that and the capper to their tour with Snowmine.
Public Speaking, Insect Factory, Michael Foster/Tristan Shepherd duo, Glockabelle @ Death by Audio
Experimental guitarist Insect Factory, who recently played DbA with Chris Brokaw, returns to the venue for a show with Brooklyn electronic artist Public Speaking and others tonight.
Porches. Being Alone. (film screenin)g @ Baby's All Right
NYC indie rockers Porches have been steadily building a local following, and now filmmaker/photographer Heather Craig has filmed a tour documentary on the band, Being Alone, which premieres at Baby's today during brunch (3 PM start).
Hannibal Buress @ Knitting Factory
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.
For all of tonight's shows, and tomorrow's, check out our NYC concert calendar.

NYC art pop collective Friend Roulette are planning to record the followup to this year's I'm Sorry You Hit Your Head LP this week at Silent Barn's studio with Julian and Carlos from Ava Luna, but ahead of that release they'll be putting out a new 4-song EP, Grow Younger, on February 6 via Goodnight Records. That EP will feature the new single, "I Guess," which makes its premiere in this post. "I Guess" is the kind of rhythmic art pop that Sufjan did on Age of Adz and St. Vincent did on Strange Mercy, and if you liked those albums, you might find something to dig here too. You can stream it, along with another, comparatively calmer EP track, "Rocket Dog," below.
Before Friend Roulette begin recording at Silent Barn's studio, they'll also play a show at the venue tonight (12/9) with Tiny Hazard, Comadrome + Ratfoot + Ginny Benson, Textiles, and Passage (DJ). Admission is $7 at the door. More info at the Facebook event. Other upcoming dates include a show New Year's Day (1/1) at Pianos with Glockabelle and Star Rover and one on February
5 6 at Baby's All Right with Zula and Celestial Shore.
