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.

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)
Nine-pierce Brooklyn disco collective Midnight Magic (who feature members of Hercules and Love Affair) have teamed with Scion A/V to bring What The Eyes Can't See, a funky new six-track EP being released for FREE via the label today (8/3). Preview that EP with "Heat", which is exclusively available now for download below (for the price of your email address) .
Midnight Magic play 'Warm Up' at PS1 on Saturday (9/3) with the updated lineup of Horse Meat Disco, Justin Miller, and BICEP. The NYC crew will then hit the road with Washed Out and Cut Copy in September, tagging Wellmont Theater on 9/13. Tickets are still available.
All dates, the download with the full EP tracklist, and some older song streams, below...
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.Stay tuned for whether there will be non-Mister Sunday events held there. Mister Sunday flyer and current lineup below...
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.
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....
