Elvis Costello & The Roots at Brooklyn Bowl in 2013 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Elvis Costello

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

Elvis Costello, The Roots @ The Capitol Theatre
Power pop vet Elvis Costello and alt-rap band The Roots teamed up last year for the collaborative album, Wise Up Ghost. They've still only played a very select amount of shows together, like their September release show at Brooklyn Bowl, and tonight is their first NYC-area appearance since that show.

Juicy J, Travis Scott, Project Pat @ Irving Plaza
Once a member of the Three 6 Mafia, Juicy J is officially an elder statesman of trap rap, but doesn't act like one. He stays trippy, collaborates with younger guys like A$AP Rocky and Big Sean, and can be just as stupid fun. Joining him tonight is Kanye collaborator Travis Scott and Project Pat, Juicy J's older brother and frequent collaborator.

Imperial Topaz, Hexbreaker, Quintet, Jerry Paper, Seth Graham @ Death By Audio
NYC ambient pop duo Imperial Topaz have been releasing singles and playing local shows for about a year now, and tonight they celebrate the release of their debut album, Full of Grace, at this release show.

Teen Commandments, House of Blondes, New Myths, Sandy @ Glasslands
Brooklyn trio New Myths make spectral synth-rock and are currently finishing up work on their new album but you can stream their 2012 EP below. Tonight they play with the similarly minded House of Blondes.

Jangula, Life Size Maps, Darlings, Teen Girl Scientist Monthly, Turnip King @ Pianos
It's the second week of Life Size Maps' residency at Pianos and they've put together a nice line-up of indie rock locals to play alongside them.

Champagne Jerry, Hand Job Academy, Ratchet By Nature @ Union Pool
Ad Rock collaborator Champagne Jerry continued his monthly Joe's Pub appearances last week (3/7), and tonight he plays another NYC show at Union Pool.

Lorde, Lo-Fang @ Roseland Ballroom
The popular Lorde wraps up her sold-out three-night run at the soon-to-close Roseland Ballroom with support from the 4AD-signed Lo-Fang.

Ellie Goulding, Conway @ The Theater @ MSG
Not unlike Lorde, Ellie Goulding's pop songs are somewhat "alternative"-minded. She begins her two-night stand at the Theater at MSG tonight.

Big Terrific @ Cameo
Max Silvestri hosts the free weekly comedy show in the back of Williamsburg's Lovin' Cup. No word yet on tonight's lineup but you can check Max's Twitter.

Not the busiest night, partially because everyone's in or heading to Austin for SXSW. Including most of BrooklynVegan. Follow our exploits via @BVSXSW on Twitter. If you're in Austin, come say hi at one of our many events (most of which are free).

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

For laughs, check out the NYC Comedy calendar too.

Psychic TV @ Brooklyn Night Bazaar 12/27/2013
Psychic TV

The new Greenpoint locale of Brooklyn Night Bazaar has been up and running for about two months, offering crafty shopping, gourmet eats, beer and bands every weekend. The venue scored a bit of a coup by getting post punk legends Psychic TV to play both nights this past weekend (12/27-28). If you know anything about confrontational main man Genesis P-Orridge and PTV's history, it's perversely funny to see them playing a venue centered around buying things. I've been to a few Bazaar shows this season and while it's always been crowded it's often been more for the shopping. Saturday it was by far the most people I've seen for the show part. Our photographer hit Friday night and pics from that are in this post.

While line-ups for PTV have changed like The Fall, it has always been P-Orridge's show who was definitely in control and in mostly good spirits Saturday (at least until someone threw a beer can on stage, which clearly stuck in his craw). This iteration of the group (which has been stable for about 10 years) included a violinist and, for part of the show, a couple saxes, and they were a tight live unit. Sets were long (definitely longer than most BK Bazaar bands get), somewhere around 90 minutes or more and, though they didn't come near their most famous songs "Godstar" or "Roman P," it was nonetheless a fun, somewhat surreal evening.

This weekend at Brooklyn Night Bazaar, it's Swearin', Cymbals Eat Guitars and more on Friday (1/3) and Magic Man and more on Saturday (1/4). More pics from Friday's PTV shows -- including one of the setlist, pics from Soundcheck and a few of openers House of Blondes (Heliotropes ended up not playing) -- and a video are below...

Swearin' at Bowery Ballroom in September (more by PSquared)
Swearin

The Brooklyn Night Bazaar is up and running in its new permanent Greenpoint location, offering shopping, food, fun, and free music every Friday and Saturday. There's a few previously discussed upcoming shows, including SISU on Friday (12/20), two Psychic TV shows later in the month, and the Panache weekend (1/10 & 1/11) that includes Mac DeMarco, Imperial Teen, Dot Wiggin Band and more. And since we last spoke, more shows have been announced.

The So So Glos play this Saturday (12/21) with a stacked lineup of California X, Palehound, and Darlings. It's the night after So So Glos open for Brand New at The Paramount.

Swearin' co-headline with Cymbals Eat Guitars with strong local support from Low Fat Getting High on January 3, a one-off before their 2014 tour which includes NYC shows at Cake Shop (3/6) and Rough Trade (3/7) (tix).

Synth popsters MNDR will be there on January 17 with The Mast and Yeasayer associate Sinkane is there the next day (1/18).

Macaulay Culkin's pizza-themed Velvet Undergound tribute band The Pizza Underground is there on January 24 opening for French Horn Rebellion (maybe they'll have more than eight minutes of material by then), along with Seasick Mama and Heavenly Beat. And the day after that, the highly entertaining Har Mar Superstar (1/25), who just played Bowery Ballroom (12/17) will headline.

Brooklyn's dark, reverby Crystal Stilts will take over on February 8.

And atmospheric post-rockers Caspian, who recently headlined Bowery Ballroom, will make things a little more epic at Brooklyn Night Bazaar on March 1.

Other additions were announced too, and you can check out the full current schedule (along with full lineups for each date, if available), below...

Heliotropes @ Cake Shop 11/16/2013
Heliotropes

Brooklyn's Heliotropes released their riff-heavy debut, A Constant Sea, over the summer and if you haven't heard it yet you can stream it below. Seeing them live is where it's at, though, and luckily these ladies like to play shows. Your next chance to see them is at Brooklyn Night Bazaar on December 27 where they'll open for the first of Psychic TV's two shows there. House of Blondes are also on the bill and that should be an interesting show to say the least. Like all BK Bazaar shows, it's free.

We've also got a belated set of pics from Heliotropes' 11/16 show at Cake Shop and those are in this post. Also, we've been asking bands to give us the 2013 Best Ofs, and Heliotropes singer Jessica Numsuwankijkul gave us a rather interesting list, her "Top 6 Musical Torture Scenarios of 2013." Check that out, along with those Cake Shop pics, below...

Cult of Youth at Union Pool, Dec 2012 (more by Lukas Hodge)
Cult of Youth

Cult of Youth recently taped an episode of popular Blogotheque's popular "Take Away" series, performing a stripped-down rendition of "Garden of Delights" from last year's Love Will Prevail. You can watch that below.

The band have also announced a set of dates that will kick off with a headlining show at 285 Kent on March 2. There the band will team with Alberich (who recently played Saint Vitus), Herzog Rising, and psychedelic noise-punks Destruction Unit.

The show is one of two NYC shows scheduled for CoY. This week you can catch them at Europa on Thursday (1/24), supporting the Hirsute Pursuit with the ever controversial Boyd Rice / NON, and House of Blondes. Tickets are still available.

Speaking of Destruction Unit, you can stream some of their material below and look for their new LP, Void, on Jolly Dream soon.

In related news, Sean Ragon (of CoY) recently celebrated the one year anniversary of the opening of Heaven Street Records at its current location. Congrats Sean!

A list of all tour dates, the "Take Away Show" featuring CoY, and some streaming Destruction Unit material are below...
