FYF Fest

Via press release...

FYF Fest's 12th year kicks off this Saturday at the L.A. Memorial Sports Arena & Exposition Park. Kanye West will now headline Saturday night's Main Stage. Frank Ocean has decided on his own terms to cancel his appearance.

With a lineup that already includes Morrissey, D'Angelo and the Vanguard, FKA Twigs, Chet Faker, Flume, Belle & Sebastian and more, FYF Fest is excited to have Kanye West play this weekend in his newly adopted home of Los Angeles.
Tickets are still available, and this lineup tweak may have upped their demand just a bit. Check out the full schedule.

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

Government Issue, Blockhead, Agitator, Lakras @ Acheron
DC hardcore legends Government Issue have been reunited since 2010, but they've yet to play NYC in that time. Now they finally will, and you can likely expect a lot of 1981's classic Legless Bull. Their current lineup is John Stabb (vocals), John Barry (guitar), Dwayne Bruner (bass), and Karl Hill (drums).

Travi$ Scott, Trippy Turtle, Walshy Fire, DJ Craze, Shift K3Y, Mija, Eauxzown, ARQ, Adamboy @ 50 Kent
This show, billed as the 'Greatest Day Ever,' puts Kanye collaborator Travi$ Scott with dance producers Trippy Turtle and Shift K3Y, Major Lazer's Walshy Fire, and more.

Wolf Eyes, Blazer Sound System @ Union Pool (Summer Thunder)
Long-running noise band Wolf Eyes play two NYC shows today. The first is this free afternoon show and then...

Wolf Eyes, Dogleather, Couch Slut @ Palisades
...They do it again late night at Palisades.

Boys Noize, Busy P b2b Boston Bun, A.G. Cook, Danny Harle, Lafawndah, Lotic @ MoMA PS1
Warm Up continues today with afternoon sets from two of the PC Music guys, big-name electronic musician Boys Noize, Tri Angle's Lotic, and more.

Boys Noize, Trina, Jubilee, Nadastrom, Venus X, Busy P, Boston Bun, Star Eyes @ Brooklyn Mirage
Boys Noize does it again after Warm Up at this Miami-centric "bacchanal" called Magic City.

Blondes, Teengirl Fantasy, Heretic, Tronik Youth, JDH & Dave P, Facets @ Good Room
There really are a ton of options for tonight if you like to go out and dance. Here's another -- a release party for local duo Blondes' new Persuasian EP on RVNG Intl.

Andrew Jackson Jihad, Jeffrey Lewis & the Bolts, Sharkanoid, Ian Graham (of Cheap Girls) @ Knitting Factory Brooklyn
This is a good bill all around. Andrew Jackson Jihad and Jeffrey Lewis walk the line between folk punk, anti-folk and indie rock. Sharkanoid is power pop from veteran ska musicians Dan Potthast (MU330) and Rick Johnson (Mustard Plug, Bomb the Music Industry!), and there's a solo set from Ian Graham, frontman of the Smoking Popes-y Cheap Girls.

Yumi Zouma, Future of What @ Baby's All Right
New Zealand's Yumi Zouma make danceable, effervescent, pop with a winsome, nostalgic air. The band's second EP came out earlier this year via Cascine.

A.G. Cook, Danny L Harle @ Baby's All Right
Two of PC Music's major creative forces play tonight. While it likely won't be the insane spectacle that was PC Music's "Pop Cube" extravaganza, expect some razzle-dazzle tonight.

The Detroit Cobras, Workout @ Brooklyn Bowl
The Motor City garage rock covers crew Detroit Cobras play their first of two NYC-area shows tonight.

Horse Meat Disco, Justin Strauss, Danny Krivit, Tad Haes @ Output
This London-based four-man DJ collective are known for finding pearls in bins of forgotten disco 12", having released a series of acclaimed compilations. Their real expertise comes into play at their DJ gigs, though. Just trust their taste...and the beat.

Real Numbers, Bummers Eve, Citizen Blast Kane @ Don Pedro
Milwaukee's Real Numers make mod-ish, tinny and relentlessly catchy indiepop that owes a whole lot to Television Personalities. Tonight's their second of three NYC shows.

"Indie '80s" @ BAM Rose Cinemas
BAM's totally awesome film series showcasing the fringe outside Hollywood during the Reagan Years starts tonight with two greats: Penelope Spheeris' hair metal doc Decline of Western Civilization II: The Metal Years and Jim Jarmusch's charming, hangdog comedy Stranger Than Paradise.

U2 @ Madison Square Garden
It begins, the first of eight U2 shows at Madison Square Garden. Word from earlier stops on the "Innocence + Experience" tour say that U2 have created a stadium spectacle like never seen before -- which is just what you'd expect for these ticket prices.

Ronnie Stone and The Lonely Riders @ Aviv
How serious you take Ronnie Stone & the Lonely Riders is up to you but his intentionally kitschy, '80s-in-a-blender shtick (somewhere between Bruce Springsteen and Prefab Sprout) is not without craft, even if it is a big joke.

Rhiannon Giddens, Joe Henry @ Prospect Park
Former singer for Carolina Chocolate Drops, Rhiannon Giddens just released her first solo album, Tomorrow Is My Turn, whcih takes country and soul standards and gives them a brand new spin. This is a free show.

Summer Scum 4 @ Trans-Pecos
This two-day, all-day fest features a cavalcade of noise, drone, outsider music and, of course, scum. Saturday's artists include Drew McDowall (ex Coil/Psychic TV), Plague Mother, Ligature, Jason Crumer and many, many more.

Stranger Cat, Loving You, The Creators Collective @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Stranger Cat, the electronic art pop duo of Cat Martino and Sven Britt, released their debut album earlier this year, which featured a collaboration with Sufjan Stevens. Tonight they play at this show, which will be screening Strange Bedfellows.

Baked, Two Inch Astronaut, Stove, Wing Dam, Palm @ Shea Stadium
If you'd like a night of '90s-style indie rock and post-hardcore, many of the bands on this bill will scratch that itch.

Kacey Musgraves, Andrew Combs @ The Paramount
Kacey Musgraves has been getting a lot of acclaim outside of the country world lately, and it's well deserved. This year's Pagent Material is a good record. If you're going tonight, it's just as worth catching Andrew Combs, who's also country but has a big Paul Simon influence too.

Karma to Burn @ Black Bear Bar
Karma to Burn have been making instrumental stoner rock since the late '90s. They broke up for a bit, but reunited back in 2009 and have released three records since then, making their current run as prolific as their original one.

Electric Citizen, Mondo Drag, Slow Season, Blackout @ Saint Vitus
These are all newer bands, but they all do justice to '70s-style hard rock and proto-metal. Good bill all around.

Failure @ The Space at Westbury
Alt-rock/space rock band Failure recently released The Heart Is a Monster, their first album since 1996. They're back in fine form, as tonight's show will surely prove.

Planes Mistaken for Stars @ Asbury Lanes
Planes Mistaken for Stars put out three great forward-thinking post-hardcore albums in the 2000s. One of those albums, No Mercy, just got reissued on Deathwish, and the band is now on tour in support of that.

Hot Tuna, New Riders of the Purple Sage @ Capitol Theatre
The San Francisco Sound is in the air this year, with 50th anniversary celebrations from both The Grateful Dead and Jefferson Airplane. Both of those bands' spirits will be in the house tonight, with JA spinoff Hot Tuna and the Dead's old pals, the New Riders.

R. Kelly, Floetry @ Prudential Center
British neo-soul/hip hop duo Floetry broke up after their 2005 sophomore album, Flo'Ology, and Marsha Ambrosius and Natalie Stewart (aka The Floacist) embarked on separate solo careers. Now they're back in action, and on a reunion tour which hits the NYC-area three times. This is the first, and it's opening for R. Kelly.

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

Fucked Up in London in May (more by Rachel Juarez-Carr)
Mission of Burma @ The Bell House, 2014 (more by PSquared)
Mission of Burma

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

Fucked Up, DOOMSQUAD @ The Wick
In addition to their full lengths, Fucked Up's ongoing 'Zodiac' single series ignores all boundaries of hardcore (for example, their new single has a 20+ minute song and elements of psychedelia). Their current tour is in support of that single series, and openers DOOMSQUAD are joining them on stage for some songs.

Great Lake Swimmers, Vandaveer @ Bowery Ballroom
Toronto's Great Lake Swimmers offered up another dose of their indie folk rock on this year's A Forest of Arms. They were in NYC early last month, and they return tonight.

The Adolescents, The Weirdos, All Torn Up, Electric Frankenstein @ Gramercy Theatre
This is a pairing of two West Coast punk greats, Adolescents and The Weirdos. The bands' lineups aren't exactly the same as back then, but they both have a couple constant members and this show should still be pretty wild.

Jessica Pratt, Ryley Walker @ Le Poisson Rouge
If you like late '60s / early '70s psychedelic folk, few 2015 albums capture that sound better than the ones by Jessica Pratt and Ryley Walker. Jessica has a hushed style, not unlike Vashti Bunyan or Sibylle Baier, while Ryley is jazzier and jammier, similar to The Pentangle.

Mykki Blanco (Dogfood MG), Psycho Egyptian, Violence, Amnesia Scanner @ Palisades
Mykki Blanco isn't rapping these days, but still finding ways to put on eccentric performances. Who knows what tonight's show will have in store.

Wolvserpent, Fell Voices, Anicon @ Saint Vitus
It's the first night of the three-night Stardust festival at Saint Vitus, which brings a handful of diverse and awesome metal bands together for the weekend.

Pride Week Rally w/ Ashanti @ Pier 26
Pride Week kicks into high gear with the annual Rally, this year featuring R&B star Ashanti.

'Paris is Burning' screening @ Prospect Park
To quote the event description: "BRIC's screening of the Sundance Grand Jury Prize-winning documentary Paris Is Burning will feature an introduction by director Jennie Livingston and by Junior LaBeija and Dr. Sol Williams Pendavis, both of whom are featured in the film. Before the screening, fellow Paris Is Burning cast members Grandfather Hector Xtravaganza and Jose Disla Xtravaganza present The Houses United Ball: Celebrating Brooklyn, which will feature members of the Houses of LaBeija, Ninja, Mizrahi, Khan, Infinity, Milan, Princess and Xtravaganza. Vjuan Allure will DJ before and during the ball." Part of Pride Week.

Pansy Division, Youth Quake, Bottoms @ Bowery Electric
Openly-gay pop punk band Pansy Division put a handful of records out on the venerable Lookout! Records in the '90s, and they keep that sound alive today (their most recent record was 2009's That's So Gay on Alternative Tentacles).

Action Bronson @ The Paramount (Long Island)
Action Bronson keeps the sound of '90s hip hop alive and well, most recently on this year's Mr. Wonderful. Tonight, the Flushing, Queens rapper plays just outside of his hometown.

Gogol Bordello, Flogging Molly, Mariachi El Bronx @ Stone Pony Summerstage (NJ)
Three bands who mix ethnic folk music and punk rock -- the Celtic Flogging Molly, the Gypsy-inspired Gogol Bordello and The Bronx's mariachi alter-ago, Mariachi El Bronx -- are currently on tour together. They aren't playing NYC, but will be nearby tonight.

Hivesmasher, Tiger Flowers, Meek is Murder, White Widows Pact, Hammerfight @ Black Bear Bar
Massachusetts tech-y grind act Hivesmasher are saying this is their last NY show. They'll be joined by some quality local hardcore bands, including Tiger Flowers, Meek Is Murder and more.

Tiga, Dan Wender, Blacky II @ Le Bain
Long-running Montreal house producer Tiga hits NYC to keep the party going all night at Le Bain (10 PM - 4 AM). He returns later this summer for Warm Up.

DMX, Rakim, The LOX, Shabba Ranks, Mase, Pete Rock & CL Smooth, Brand Nubian, Das Efx @ Radio City
Tonight Radio City hosts the "Masters of Ceremony" show which puts a number of hip hop legends on the same stage for one night.

The Soul Rebels #RebelJam ft. Rakim, Slick Rick, Styles P, Sheek Louch, Eric Krasno & surprise guests @ Blue Note
After the Robert Glasper shows, many of the performers at tonight's Radio City show are heading over to the Blue Note to join The Soul Rebels for a 12:30 AM jam sesh.

Del Close Marathon
The Upright Citizens Brigade's annual around-the-clock improv onslaught brings unscripted laughs to a multitude of venues this weekend. You can buy a $35 wristband at UCB Chelsea starting today at noon, and that gets you into every show (based on capacity).

FarmBorough Festival @ Randalls Island
Randall's Island gets its first-ever country music festival, and things kick off today with Dierks Bentley and more.

Destruction Unit @ Austin Psych Fest 2014 (more by Tim Griffin)

Destruction Unit, Vanity, Shredded Nerve, Live Drum Punishment @ Palisades
Thee Oh Sees frontman John Dwyer has said, "I believe Destruction Unit to be one of the most important underground bands in America," and if you've seen them live it's easy to see why. They balance punk and psychedelia to the point where you're not sure if you should zone out or flail your body around, and no one time seeing them is like the next.

Marc Maron, Mike Lawrence @ BAM
Having just made headlines interviewing President Obama, comedian, podcaster, TV star and enjoyable crank Marc Maron brings his current standup show to BAM with a warm-up set from Mike Lawrence. Sold out.

Diet Cig, Heathers, Gingerlys, Mercury Girls @ Cake Shop
Cake Shop liked the idea of the "Super Show" they did for their 10th anniversary, they're continuing them on a monthly basis, featuring bands they really love.

Starlight Girls, Def Girls, Fetzing, Melt @ Kings County Saloon
The shoegazy pop of Starlight Girls is the main attraction, but openers Melt make superior, '90s style indie rock (and have Cassie Ramone on bass).

Ty Segall, William Tyler @ Mercury Lounge
Ty plays his first of two sold-out solo acoustic shows tonight with this early show at Mercury Lounge...

Ty Segall, The Mystery Lights, Cory Hanson @ Rough Trade
...before wrapping things up at Rough Trade with Brooklyn psych band The Mystery Lights and WAND frontman Cory Hanson. If you didn't score tickets and are in the area, it might be worth swinging by to see if they have any last-minute tickets available.

Desaparecidos, Bandroidz @ Rough Trade
Before Ty: Conor Oberst put out his best album in ten years with the new Desaparecidos album. Unlike his recent folk and country affairs, this is a real-deal punk album, so it should be a blast to hear in a tightly-packed small venue like this one.

Ava Luna, Charly Bliss, Evvy @ New York Hall of Science
How often do you get to see a show at a science museum? Tonight's features the funky Ava Luna, and Charly Bliss' riffy pop. Also: free beer.

Horse Meat Disco, House of Stank, DJ Spun, Mystic Bill @ Output
This London-based four-man DJ collective are known for finding pearls in bins of forgotten disco 12", having released a series of acclaimed compilations. Their real expertise comes into play at their DJ gigs, though. Just trust their taste...and the beat.

Roger Sellers @ Elvis Guesthouse
Austin musician Roger Sellers makes intricately layered music, part aural soundscapes a la Tangerine Dream, part savvy pop.

Mission of Burma, Megafauna @ The Bell House
One of the most influential American indie/punk bands of the '80s (Signals, Calls, and Marches and Vs. are stone-cold classics), the band continue their mission (sorry) today with strident vigor. They're still great.

Jack Oblivian, The Sheiks, Gozer @ The Grand Victory
Garage punk legend Jack Oblivian hits town with fellow Memphis band The Sheiks for what should be a real good time.

Richard Thompson @ Town Hall
Modern folk icon and guitar great Richard Thompson just released his Jeff Tweedy-produced new album, Still, and celebrates tonight.

James Chance, Will Epstein, Parlor Walls, Eve Essex @ Trans-Pecos
No wave vet and general cool dude James Chance is one of Trans-Pecos' new curators, but tonight he headlines this Northern Spy curated show.

Robert Glasper @ Blue Note
As part of the Blue Note Jazz Festival, jazz/hip hop pianist Robert Glasper is doing four nights at the Blue Note (6/24-27) with 8:30 and 10 PM sets. His albums are loaded with guests like Common, Jill Scott, Brandy, Snoop Dogg, Lupe Fiasco, Norah Jones, Bilal and more.

I Love the '90s @ Le Poisson Rouge
While Screech is in prison,  Saved by the Bell's Mr Belding (aka actor Dennis Haskins) will be partying at this '90s nostalgia party.

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

We were just talking about a new dance club that will be known for its soundsystem opening in Williamsburg (and the "new Brooklyn electronic underground"), but let's take a second to acknowledge a NYC club with similar specs that has been going strong for a decade. Cielo (18 Little West 12th Street) is celebrating its 10th anniversary in existence with events all month. They also were just named "Best Sound System in North America" by Beatport.

With two down and eight celebratory nights still to go, the party continues tonight (1/18) with Wolf + Lamb vs Soul Clap which is sold out; and moves on to tomorrow (1/19) with Tania Vulcano, Willie Graff, and + Filsonik before finally polishing off the weekend with Horse Meat Disco on Sunday (1/20). Another weekend of events follows, leading up to the finale with Todd Terje & Danny Krivit on 1/31. Tickets to all those shows (apart from tonight's) are still available.

Congrats to Cielo! Full listing of 10th Anniversary events are below.

Midnight Magic at Prospect Park (more by Jessica Amaya)

The Yard

It used to be where Issue Project Room was located. They moved and the outdoor Gowanus Canal space opened as the Yard, which then changed to BKLYN Yard. Always a mystery as to whether the outdoor venue will return each year, last summer it was shut down just as it was getting started. You might remember when all events were cancelled in June which was followed by the weekly daytime dance party 'Sunday Best' un-cancelling but becoming alcohol-free, and then cancelling again (and moving to Brooklyn Fireproof).

WELL, they haven't given up! Sunday Best, put on by the people behind Mister Saturday Night, have changed their party name to Mister Sunday and will return to the space this summer, though the location is now known as Gowanus Grove (identity crisis!). They write:

We've been keeping this one under our hats for a while, but the time has come to spill the beans. In just over a month, on Memorial Day Weekend, we're introducing Mister Sunday, the outdoor, Sunday afternoon spinoff of Mister Saturday Night. Clever name, we know.

If you ever came to Sunday Best at BKLYN Yard, you'll know the place: it's the same canal-side, tree-spotted plot of land at 400 Carroll Street between Bond and Nevins in Brooklyn, now rechristened Gowanus Grove.

If you never made it down, let us count the ways you're going to love it. First, kids and dogs - you can bring them. We love them, and we don't get to see enough of them on Saturday nights. Second, superb food - we're teaming up with Brooklyn Flea to install a small but ace team of food vendors. Right now, we've confirmed Mile End, who will be serving a bunch of stuff you can't get at the storefront in Boerum Hill, and we're soon to confirm at least one more. Third, our friends from Botanica, the best little bar in the five boroughs, are taking care of the booze.

And last, but certainly not least, is the music. The Mister Saturday Night residents, Justin Carter and Eamon Harkin, the gents that pull the strings to bring it all together, will be playing records each and every Sunday through the summer on the big, blue soundsystem. There'll be guests alongside them occasionally as well. Moodymann, Todd Terje, Horse Meat Disco, Optimo and Space Dimension Controller will all take their turns, and on opening day, Four Tet will drop by.

And that's all there is to say about that. We'll see you outside.

Stay tuned for whether there will be non-Mister Sunday events held there. Mister Sunday flyer and current lineup below...

Those three blue pictures (by Ryan Muir) are of James Murphy deejaying Webster Hall on Friday night (the same party MSTRKRFT & Grandmaster Flash played). Stay tuned for details of James Murphy's new DFA party coming to Santos' Party House.

A different DFA party happens on Tuesdays at 205. Tonight (May 20) @ 205 Tuesdays is... HORSE MEAT DISCO (The Eagle London), TYLER POPE (!!! / LCD Soundsystem), JUSTIN MILLER (DFA) & JACQUES RENAULT. To quote David Bruno, "horsemeat disco guys are in Hercules and Love Affair's band" (who isn't?).

Hercules & Love Affair played Studio B Saturday night. And if you were wondering what "Blind" sounded like without Antony....
