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

Governors Ball
It's the first day of annual three-day NYC festival Governors Ball on Randall's Island, and today's lineup is pretty solid with sets from Drake, Florence + the Machine, My Morning Jacket, St. Vincent, The Decemberists, Ratatat, Death From Above 1979, DIIV, Rae Sremmurd and more.

White Lung, Obliterations @ Knitting Factory
White Lung bring complexity and accessibility to punk without breaking the formula of short, loud, fast songs. It's some of the best stuff this genre has to offer right now. This is one of the GovBall afterparties so it's a late show (midnight) and also includes LA Southern Lord-signed hardcore band Obliterations (not to be confused with Norwegian Relapse-signed death metal band Obliteration).

Little Dragon @ Brooklyn Bowl
Yet another of the Governors Ball After Dark shows tonight, here's a chance to catch Swedish pop band Little Dragon in much smaller confines than usual, and play a few frames too. Sold out.

BC Camplight, The Rally, Tall Juan @ Rough Trade
Brian Christinzio has been making lightly psychedelic pop as BC Camplight for ten years or so, having released two albums in the late '00s. He was also in an early incarnation of The War on Drugs and played on Sharon Van Etten's Epic. He left the US for Manchester, England -- a move reflected in How to Die in the North, the first BC Camplight album in eight years, which came out via Bella Union earlier this year. Owing a little to Brian Wilson, '70s soft rock / singer-songwriters, and other influences, it's an ambitious, likeably weird record.

SBTRKT (DJ Set), Nick Hook, Dan Wender, Blacky II @ Verboten
This is still another GovBall afterparty(11 PM doors), and one that will keep you dancing all night long with SBTRKT in the DJ booth.

Atmosphere, Bishop Nehru @ Irving Plaza
Veteran alt-rap duo Atmosphere return to NYC, and making it a great double bill is promising Brooklyn newcomer Bisho Nehru. Why yes, this IS also a Governors Ball After Dark show (11:30 PM start).

People Under the Stairs @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Giving Atmosphere some competition is another underground hip hop group, People Under the Stairs, playing their own GovBall after show at the same time at MHOW.

Jedi Mind Tricks @ Bowery Ballroom
Whether or not you decide to hit Atmosphere or People Under the Stairs later on, underground rap fans can start their night off at Bowery Ballroom for Jedi Mind Tricks. The duo of Stoupe and Vinnie Paz are back together for the first time since Stoupe left in 2011, and they put out a new album this week.

Hysterese, Pleasure Industry, The Brass @ The Place
Germany's Hysterese make what you could accurately call pop punk, but in a rawer sense, kind of like The Marked Men. They're also darker than that band, but not at the expense of hooks. Tonight's their first-ever NYC show.

Guerilla Toss, Loud Boyz, Jackie @ Roll Up Motorcycle Garage
Bushwick Open Studios is throwing a party at Roll Up Motorcycle Garage tonight which exhibits photographs, illustrations, paintings and more from several local artists. There's also live music from art punks Guerilla Toss, garage punks Loud Boyz, and Jackie. It's free, and there's free food and booze too.

The Casualties, I.R.A., Iron Force, Agitator @ Acheron
Fresh off a big NJ show opening for D.R.I., NYC street punk vets The Casualties take over their hometown tonight with this much smaller Bushwick show.

Max's Kansas City 50th Anniversary Reunion @ Bowery Electric
Legendary now-closed NYC punk venue Max's Kansas City continues its 50th anniversary celebration tonight at the current home of many '70s-era NYC punks, Bowery Electric. Tonight's lineup has The Waldos, Testors (the original lineup featuring Sonny Vincent), New York Junk, Luigi & the Wiseguys and Love Pirates, with Bill Popp & the Tapes playing in the Map Room. There's also MC Jimi Lalumia, DJ Rob Select, and cameos by Steve Dior and Tammy Faye Starlight reprising her acclaimed off-broadway performance as Nico.

Dead Stars, Pet Sun, Monograms, The Glazzies @ Cake Shop
Dead Stars are celebrating the release of their new single "Calm Punk" which is another fine example of the band's fuzzy, hooky love of '90s indie rock.

Gramercy Arms @ HiFi Bar
Led by Dambuilders frontman Dave Derby, Gramercy Arms make classic, '70s-style pop with a rotating cast of guests. 2014's The Season of Love featured Tanya Donelly, Lloyd Cole, Doug Gillard and more...so who knows who might show up for this FREE show.

Tyondai Braxton @ The Kitchen
Originally performed at the Guggenheim in 2013, Braxton's Hive1 is "part architectural installation and part ensemble performance with five musicians sitting cross-legged atop their own space-age oval pods."

The Woggles, The Swingin' Neckbreakers, Muck and the Mires, Games @ Grand Victory
Georgia garage-rock revivalists The Woggles, who've been reviving garage rock for nearly 30 years, are known for their crazed stage show and stomping tunes. They still pack a punch. Opening this bill are Brooklyn's Games who make Nerves-style powerpop.

Ian Hunter and The Rant Band, A Thousand Mothers @ The Bell House
Seventy-six and still going strong, onetime Mott the Hoople frontman brings with him over forty years of songs.

Graham Parker / Ian Hunter at The Paramount
Graham Parker
Ian Hunter and the Rant Band

...[Graham] Parker (who has for the past several years lived near Woodstock,New York), was in personable form, joking with an enthusiastic dancer in the front row ("Are you by from the Fall River area, by any chance?"), remembering an offer from one of Aerosmith's management teams ("You should open for Flock of Seagulls"), and arranging his hits and near hits with generous care ("From Squeezing Out Sparks, side one").

The sound was beautifully balanced so you could catch every nuance of guitarists Brinsley Schwartz and Martin Belmont trading leads, and even most of those genius lyrics. - [The Phoenix]

That review from from Graham Parker & the Rumour's recent show in Boston at The Wilbur (12/6). Before that, he played NYC and then a show at The Paramount in Huntington, NY on December 2 with onetime Mott the Hoople frontman Ian Hunter. Pictures from the Paramount are in this post.

New Yorkers (or folks visiting) will have another chance to see Ian when he plays City Winery on February 9 and 10, and tickets for those shows are on sale now.

Meanwhile, Graham has a few West Coast shows coming up and will probably be attending the premiere of Judd Apatow's new comedy, This Is 40, (to which he contributes songs and also appears in) which is out December 21.

More pictures from the Paramount show (including setlists for both) are below.

Leonard Cohen

UK music magazine Uncut put out their list of the top 75 albums of 2012. The top ten leans pretty heavy on long-running '60s/'70s survivors who put out new albums this year, but plenty of the list-topping regulars from newer acts are on there too, along with a few interesting surprises (Sun Araw, M Geddes Gengras & the Congos!). You can check out the full list below.

Graham Parker

Arriving on the mid-'70s London scene as a rough'n'ready product of the pub-rock era -- an R&B- loving Nick Lowe with a sharper, more ambitious pen, as it were -- Parker predated Elvis Costello and Joe Jackson, both of whom would second his illustration that the singer/songwriter idiom could be recharged, giving intelligent rock fans an excitable and energetic alternative to (slightly) older guardsmen like Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Randy Newman and Van Morrison. - [Trouser Press]
Last year, pub rock survivor Graham Parker reunited with his old band, The Rumour, to make Three Chords Good, their first album together in 31 years. You can stream the album below via Spotify.

Graham and the Rumour are currently touring the record in America and will be playing the previously mentioned NYC show at Concert Hall at the NY Society for Ethical Culture on Saturday (12/1, tickets) with openers The Figgs, and then The Paramount Theatre in Long Island on Sunday (12/2, tickets) which is a co-headling show with Ian Hunter. All tour dates are below.

Parker's had a long career, and had college radio hits with his 1988 album The Mona Lisa's Sister and has kept on going since. He may be about to get another moment in the spotlight as fan Judd Apatow tapped Parker to not only contribute songs to his new film, This Is 40, but also appear in the film. The comedy, a sideways sequel to Knocked Up (about Paul Rudd's character from that film) will be out in theaters December 21. The soundtrack was produced by Jon Brion and also features Norah Jones, Fiona Apple, Lindsay Buckingham, Paul McCartney, Yoko Ono, Paul Simon, Wilco, Loudon Wainwright and more. Tracklist is below, as is the trailer for the film.

A list of tour dates, album stream, videos, and the This Is 40 trailer and soundtrack tracklist, below...

The Baseball Project
Baseball Project

Like he recently did with the Mountain Goats, Twins fan Craig Finn will reportedly make a guest appearance with The Baseball Project at the Bell House in Brooklyn tonight (4/29). As Wikipiedia puts it, "The Baseball Project is a supergroup composed of Peter Buck, Scott McCaughey, Steve Wynn and Linda Pitmon formed in 2007." Also playing tonight's show is Baseball Project member Steve Wynn's band Steve Wynn & The Miracle Three.

Yo La Tengo's Ira Kaplan probably won't make it to collaborate or see the Brooklyn show because he'll be busy playing with Marshall Crenshaw over at City Winery. Ira did recently play with a bunch of R.E.M. members though, at a show whose focus was Big Star.

if you miss the Brooklyn show, you have a couple more chances to catch the Baseball Project this weekend, especially if you know Drew (they play at his house in Ringwood, NK on April 30th), and if you don't mind heading to Hoboken for the annual and FREE Hoboken Arts & Music Festival on Sunday (5/1) with Ian Hunter and more on three stages (I bet Ira is at that one). Full fest schedule, a video of Craig Finn playing a new song, and all tour dates bleow...

ZZ Top
ZZ Top

While many designers tagged trendier (see younger) performers to appear at their Fashion Week soirees, many of which happened the day before for Fashion's Night Out, John Varvatos and show curator/drummer Matt Sorum (Velvet Revolver, Guns N' Roses) stayed true to the spirit of the Bowery store located where CBGB once stood, picking a lineup that would make Wayne and Garth tremble with a lack of self worth (Mike Meyers sitting on the side of the stage with a giddy grin would seem to confirm that).

Alejandro Escovedo performed first on Saturday night (9/11), churning out garage crunch with no less than 4 guitarists blazing on the Varvatos store's small stage. Ian Hunter (lead singer of Mott the Hopple) followed and was joined by Escovedo for a performance of glam cornerstone anthem "All The Young Dudes."

To break up the boys club, former Runaways singer Cherie Currie, one of rock's more underappreciated female frontwomen, came on next. Currie performed "Cherry Bomb," the Runaways' ode to young female rebellion, with a still palpable sense of angst, proving at the same time you're never too old to stop flaunting sex appeal (and to fit into leather corsets).

The Darling Stilettos
Darling Stilettos

Taking a cue from the icon that preceded them, the night's youngest performers, The Darling Stilettos (think rock's answer to the Pussycat Dolls), danced and felt each other up in all the right places while screaming classic rock covers (and one original tune) like over-sexualized banshees.

There were new groups from established rockers as well. New York icon Jessie Malin performed with his latest musical collective The St. Marks Social, and recently formed rock super group Black Country Communion, consisting of former Deep Purple frontman/bassist Glenn Hughes, blues guitar god Joe Bonamassa, and prodigal son Jason Bonham (Led Zeppelin, Foreigner) gave a sneak preview of some of the heavy tracks from their upcoming self-titled debut.

After a brief pause, Los Angeles superstar cover band Camp Freddy settled in as the house band for the remainder of the show, welcoming on stage a revolving door of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame alumni as the evening catapulted upward in intensity. Some played covers, like ZZ Top (who were in town to play two nights at Beacon Theatre) evoking the spirit of Hendrix with "Foxy Lady" and Perry Farrell aggressively launching into the audience during "Sympathy for the Devil." Others did their own songs, like MC5's outspoken guitarist Wayne Kramer urging the crowd on during "Kick Out the Jams" with help from Handsome Dick Manitoba, or Alice Cooper being diabolically stylish while performing "I'm 18" and "School's Out."

By the time Farrell ended the night with Jane's Addiction's "Mountain Song," the Varvatos store crowd had finally reached the feverish level of turbulence one would expect for such a night. In fact the performers throughout the night consistently displayed more energy than the predominantly younger audience. For an event full of aging rockers, it really just felt like a riotous gathering of all the young dudes.

The crowd was full of familiar faces as well. Chris Brown, Jimmy Kimmel, Rachael Ray, and Matt Pinfield were among those getting their picture taken on the red carpet and mingling with the fashioned-out crowd. Iggy Pop (who played Don Hill's the night before) and Robert Plant (who played Bowery Ballroom the next day) were nowhere in sight though. More pictures and some videos from the whole night below...

Continue reading "ZZ Top, Perry Farrell, Alice Cooper & many more played John Varvatos' 10th Anniversary @ the Bowery store (pics & video) "


Black Rebel Motorcycle Club played the Fashion Week party at Don Hill's on Thursday. Iggy Pop and The Stooges played there Friday, and according to the above Tweet by Eli Mizrahi, Courtney Love is playing there tonight.

Eli's Tweet also reminds us that tonight is the John Varvatos's 10th Anniversary party in the store previously known as CBGB. There will be a concert from: 9 p.m. - 2 a.m. Supposedly confirmed performers include Alejandro Escovedo, Alice Cooper, Wayne Kramer, Ian Hunter, ZZ Top, Black Country Communion, Camp Freddy, Cherie Currie, Darling Stillettos, Handsome Dick Manitoba, Jesse Malin & The St. Marks Social, and Perry Farrell . Rumored performers include Iggy Pop and (thanks John) Robert Plant (who plays Bowery Ballroom Sunday).

Who else is playing fashion week parties tonight?

Alejandro Escovedo

Alejandro Escovedo just played two nights at City Winery with Bobby Bare Jr. opening. Special guests on the first night (6/29) included Mott the Hoople's Ian Hunter, who joined Alejandro for a verse-trading encore of Mott's "I Wish I Was Your Mother." The second night (6/30) Alejandro's producer Tony Visconti sat in with the band for songs that included a cover of the Bowie-penned Mott the Hoople song "All the Young Dudes." Singer Tift Merritt was there too; videos of those songs are below.

Alejandro Escovedo plays again at City Winery on Friday (tickets still available), and he's at Vintage Vinyl tonight (7/1) in Jersey. More info and all tour dates are here.

Grab "Silver Cloud," the hard-rocking second track from his new record, Street Songs of Love, posted above. More pictures and videos are below...

Neko Case @ the 2009 Newport Folk Festival (more by Jim Brueckner)
Neko Case

"During the weekend of October 16th through October 18th, The New Yorker will present its tenth annual Festival, a three-day series of events that brings together some of the world's most talented and distinguished people in the fields of literature, art, film, music, humor, business, food, politics, design, and science....

...Pop-music offerings will include interviews with and performances by Neko Case, Bon Iver, Steve Earle, and Loudon Wainwright III; a pub-rock reunion with Ian Hunter, of Mott the Hoople, and Graham Parker, of Graham Parker and the Rumour; and a panel discussion about the music industry with Jace Clayton, Josh Deutsch, Melvin Gibbs, Danny Goldberg, and Livia Tortella. In addition, a special Brooklyn Playlist concert at Brooklyn's Bell House, curated by Sasha Frere-Jones and Kelefa Sanneh, will feature Dirty Projectors, House of Ladosha, Jubilee, and Liturgy."

This is a full three months before Bon Iver's other upcoming NYC show. More New Yorker announcements soon. "Tickets will go on sale on Friday, September 18th, at 12 noon, and may be purchased at newyorker.com/festival"

last night (April 17, 2008) in NYC....




More than a few special guests (and I don't mean the protesters) showed up to the opening party/benefit inside the John Varvatos store (aka CBGB) on the Bowery last night (April 17, 2008). All photos by Randy Haecker, and there's more where they came from at his Flickr.

A lot of these guys were in town to play a different benefit show the night before.
