Calvin Love / Las Rosas @ Seaport Music Fest 7/18/2014
Calvin Love
Las Rosas

With spiky hair and a black jacket with flower-accented lapels, Calvin Love looks like a character out of Less Than Zero. His music fits that too, dusty desert rock, heavy on the ethereal synths. Which made for pretty good setting sun music at the Seaport Music Fest this past Friday (7/18). He played a few new songs, hopefully he'll announce a new record soon.

Opening the night was local band Las Rosas who I had somehow managed to never see before Friday, despite playing all the time. Glad to have finally caught them: as far as '60s-style groovy surf/psych, Las Rosas do it very well, and look the part too. They're maybe NYC's version of the Allah-Las. Pictures from the night are in this post.

Like we said, Las Rosas play a lot and there are a few chances to catch them in NYC: July 31 at Glasslands with Juan Wauters and Cassie Ramone (tickets); then August 19 at Union Pool with Spider Bags (tickets). They also play two NYC shows with Shannon & the Clams: September 9 at Union Pool and September 12 at Palisades (tickets).

All Las Rosas dates are listed, plus more pics of their and Calvin Love's Seaport Music Fest show, below...

Dinosaur Jr. / Mac DeMarco @ 2014 4 Knots Music Fest
4Knots Fest

4Knots Fest
4Knots Fest

NYC's free, all-ages 4Knots Music Festival went down across two stages at the South Street Seaport. On the main stage (Pier 16), Radkey kicked things off with their classic-style punk, and (as you can see in the video below) at one point the PA cut out but they just kept rocking. Northampton indie rockers Speedy Ortiz followed with a set that stretched as far back as their early pre-Sports single "Taylor Swift" up through their brand new "Bigger Party" which came out the day before the festival. Ex-Women band Viet Cong followed with a set of their jammy post-punk.

Those Darlins were fun, peppering their set with covers (The Crystals' "Then He Kissed Me" and Dylan's "The Man In Me"). If anyone was going to fall into the river during 4Knots, it would've been during Mac DeMarco's set, but he kept things fairly shenanigan-free. Dinosaur Jr. capped off the evening with an enjoyable and hit-packed set (that is how you Festival, bands) that had a pit/crowdsurfers going the whole time (video of that below).

The other stage was the Front/Row stage over on Fulton St (not exactly where they set up for Seaport Music Festival but almost) with a handful of smaller acts, including day openers and '90s-loving Dead Stars, plus Crazy Pills, Juan Wauters, and heartland rockers Nude Beach. Pictures from their sets, and more of the rest of 2014 4Knots fest, below....

Eagulls @ SXSW 2014 (more by Tim Griffin)
Eagulls

As you may well be aware, the The Northside Festival starts this week in Brooklyn, the music portion of which runs from Thursday - Sunday (June 12 - 15). Almost every venue in Williamsburg, Bushwick and Greenpoint are participating, making for a busier-than-usual weekend of showgoing. There are a bunch of high-profile shows happening -- Thee Oh Sees, The War on Drugs, CHVRCHES, Beirut, Courtney Barnett, Sharon Van Etten to name a few -- as well as, of course, the BV's official Northside Showcase which happens Friday (6/13) at Baby's All Right with Operators, the new band of Dan Boeckner (Wolf Parade, Handsome Furs, Divine Fits), plus Little Big League, and Motion Studies. But we've got some other recommendations, so below are 10 relatively smaller Northside shows we think are worth checking out.

Northside Music Badges have sold out -- you can still premium badges -- but tickets are still available to most shows. And if you have a badge, know that entrance is based on capacity so if you really really want to get into a show (like Courtney Barnett which is sold out), go early or buy a ticket if available.

You can keep up to date on Northside Fest happenings via their free IOS app which offers showtimes, maps and such.

Hope to see you at our show on Friday, and around the neighbor this week. Here are our Northside picks:

King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard @ Baby's All Right 5/16/2014 (via @brooklynvegan)
IMAGE

Australia's King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard were in NYC over the weekend for back-to-back shows at Baby's All Right on Friday (5/16) and Saturday (5/17) that wrapped up their post-Psych Fest tour. I trudged out through the rain on Friday and enjoyed their set. Armed with two drummers and three singers, King Gizzard mostly kept things moving/interesting, with their brand of psych that falls somewhere between Thee Oh Sees and the Brian Jonestown Massacre. They did definitely test my tolerance for jamming when, 30-minutes in, they announced they only had one more song. What they didn't mention was, that last song was about 20 minutes long. Despite the torrential downpours that night, there was a decent crowd there too, most of whom seemed pretty into it.

If you missed them last weekend, King Gizzard are sticking around NYC and have a couple more shows on the horizon. They play Saturday (5/24) at Rockaway Beach Surf Club with Mystery Lights and DJ Jonathan Toubin. That's a day show and is free. They'll also be playing the Panache Booking Northside Festival showcase at Baby's All Right on June 12 with Hunters, Juan Wauters, Mac DeMarco's other band, Walter TV, as well as Homeshake, Big Ups, and DJ Jonathan Toubin. Tickets are on sale now or you can use your Northside badge if you have one of those (note badge entrance based on capacity).

Flyers for both upcoming NYC shows and a few King Gizzard steams, below...

Cherry Glazerr

LA trio Cherry Glazerr may still be in high school but they're already making a name for themselves, having released their debut album, Haxel Princess, on notoriously party-friendly Burger Records earlier this year. It's glitter-dappled, punky pop that's not scared to throw attitude or a Big Riff in your face. You can stream the whole thing below.

The band will be making their first trip to NYC this summer, with two shows on the docket: July 31 at Mercury Lounge and August 2 at Baby's All Right. with Sunflower Bean. Tickets for Baby's are on sale now; tickets to Merc go on sale Friday (5/9) at noon with an AmEx presale beginning Wednesday (5/7) at noon.

Speaking of Burger Records, the label's annual Burger Boogaloo goes down in Oakland, CA's Mosswood Park on July 5 & 6 and features Thee Oh Sees, Ronnie Spector, Shannon & the Clams, OFF!, Reigning Sound, a reunited Milk n' Cookies, The Muffs, La Sera and more. Tickets are on sale and full two-day lineup below.

Cherry Glazerr have a couple other shows scheduled -- including one in Chicago after the NYC show -- and all dates are listed, along with the album stream and Burger Boogaloo lineup, below...

LODRO @ Baby's All Right (more by Amanda Hatfield)
LODRO

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

Alexis Taylor @ Manhattan Inn
In the US for the William Onyeabor tributes, the Hot Chip singer will be previewing his new album at this free matinee show. Special guests are being promised.

Bladerunner Trio (John Zorn, Bill Laswell, Dave Lombardo) @ Le Poisson Rouge
Zorn's Bladerunner project has been a thing for a while; it first appeared back in 2000. The core lineup includes him, legendary bassist/producer Bill Laswell, and ex-Slayerdrummer Dave Lomardo. While they've never recorded anything official, you can catch them tonight.

Slint, Spires That in the Sunset Rise @ Bowery Ballroom
Slint only put out two albums -- 1989's Steve Albini-produced Tweez and 1991's legendary Spiderland -- but their brand of post-rock and post-hardcore has proved to be highly influential over time and it's held up very well.

Suzanne Vega, Ari Hest @ City Winery
A singer-songwriter for over 30 years (best known for "Tom's Diner" and "Luka"), Vega just released her new album, Tales From the Realm of the Queen of Pentacles where she samples 50 Cent on one track, believe it or not.

Weekend, Cities Aviv, Grey Zine @ Glasslands
Weekend moved from San Francisco to Brooklyn, dialed back the reverb and upped the melody/danceabilty in the music, the result of which was last year's terrific Jinx. Volume level remained constant: deafening.

Matt Pond PA, The Lighthouse & The Whaler @ Rough Trade
Long-running indie band Matt Pond PA are celebrating the 10th anniversary of their album, Emblems, for this current tour which makes two stops in NYC, this being the first.

Jessy Lanza, Ricky Eat Acid @ Santos Party House
Ontario singer/producer Jessy Lanza released her debut album Pull My Hair Back via Hyperdub (Burial, Laurel Halo) earlier this year. It was co-produced and co-written by Jeremy Greenspan of Junior Boys, and falls somewhere between future R&B, the synthpop of Grimes, and the type of production that usually feels at home on Hyperdub.

The So So Glos, Juan Wauters, Flagland, Krill, Patrick Stickles (DJ set), Baked (DJ set) @ Shea Stadium
The So So Glos are no strangers to Shea Stadium (some of them live there) and are ofter at their raucous best at their home. This stacked lineup is being billed as a "Tooth Fairy" benefit, with all proceeds going into the mouth of a friend.

CHVRCHES, The Range @ Terminal 5
Who'd have thought a year ago that Scottish synthpop band CHVRCHES would get so big? Tonight's the last of three sold-out shows at Terminal 5.

Skull Defekts, Sannhet, Surviva @ The Studio at Webster Hall
Much like they did in 2011 for Peer Amid, Daniel Higgs and Swedish experimental rockers Skull Defekts have joined forces for new album  Dances in Dreams of the Known Unknown which juxtaposes Higgs' beautiful, fractured poetry spewed over a tense arrangement. Higgs will be with the band tonight.

Tonstartsbandht, LODRO, AJ Davila y Terror Amor, Cassie Ramone, Plastic Pinks @ Trans-Pecos
This is a pretty killer bill, with Montreal/Brooklyn noisemakers Tonstartsbandht, the dark-n-stormy LODRO, Davila 666 frontman AJ Davila, former Vivian Girl guitarist Cassie Ramone and more

Majical Cloudz, Spencer Madsen (reading), Kool A.D. (reading), Mira Gonzalez (reading) @ Marlin Room @ Webster Hall
Brooklyn poet Spencer Madsen releases his new book, You Can Make Anything Sad, this week (4/29) and he'll be celebrating it with a release show featuring readings and a live performance from Majical Cloudz.

Comedy Night @ 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. Having had his own Comedy Central special and a featured performer on Broad City, Hannibal himself is getting pretty big league. Get there early.

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

Household @ DbA Jan. 2013 (more by Ivey Haber)
Household

Brooklyn postpunk band Household are calling it quits, but will play one last show before they do -- Saturday (4/26) at Baby's All Right. If you've never given the band a spin, well shame on you, but you can listen to 2013's mini-LP, Elaines, in full below. If you like skeletal early-'80s pop like Liliput, The Slits, or Girls at Our Best, Household follow that tradition very well.

Saturday's final performance is part of The Good Festival which "celebrates local music and good food initiatives with cooking demos + sustainable-living workshops between bands' sets." The rest of the lineup is good too, with The Suzan, The Naked Heroes, Juan Wauters, Wild Yaks and The Wives.

As for the cooking demos part, here's what to expect:

PLANT PROPAGATION: Melissa Metrick, Roberta's Garden
DOUGH AND KNEADING: Sfoglini Pasta
GET YOUR JAM ON: Anarchy in a Jar
TAIWANESE DESSERTS: Cathy Erway
NO BAKE TART: Meredith Alcarese, Local Roots CSA Member
WORM COMPOSTING: Local Roots NYC
Doors are at 6 PM with bands starting at 7 PM. Tickets are on sale. Flyer for The Good Festival and Household album stream below...

Mac DeMarco / getting close with a fan @ Mohawk, 4/13/2014
Mac DeMarco, Juan Wauters, Que Pasa @ Mohawk - 4/13/2014
Mac DeMarco, Juan Wauters, Que Pasa @ Mohawk - 4/13/2014

Fans have come to expect messy, raucous live shows, and the first 10 rows are often getting crazy before Mac even hits the stage. "Sometimes I'll kiss my bass player just to get a little giggle out of everybody but people come to our shows and it's out of my hands, essentially." Here, mention must be made of the drumsticks-up-the-bum incident. It occurred onstage in Montreal in 2012 and is to DeMarco as biting the head off a bat is to Ozzy Osbourne: a signature story of outrageousness that's too good to ever die. There's footage of it somewhere, in a dark corner of the internet. Which his mother happened to see.

"She was just like, 'What the fuck?' and a couple of other members of my family were like, 'What's wrong with you?' They were more concerned and confused than angry. As soon as I called them and was like, 'Hey guys, it's OK, I'm not smoking meth or anything,' it was OK."

He adds, frowning: "I don't really know why it happened... My girlfriend told me everyone had been saying, [he puts on a sulky voice] 'Man, Mac's shows aren't crazy any more.' The shows before that had been drunken, crazy stupid spectacles. So it was a reactionary thing to, 'They think I can't be crazy any more!'" Further amends were made with the song Freaking Out The Neighbourhood ("Sorry mama," he sang sweetly, "there are times I get carried away..."). - [The Guardian]

After playing two sold-out shows in NYC, Canadian-born and current Bed-Stuy resident Mac DeMarco has been heading west on his tour with Captured Tracks labelmate Juan Wauters. The tour hit Austin last night (4/13) for a sold out show at Mohawk. He kept his clothes on but there was the usual crowd surfing and random makeout sessions that seem to happen at a lot at his shows. Pictures from all the shenanigans are in this post.

More pics, including ones of Juan Wauters and Austin openers Que Pasa, below...

Axxa/Abraxas

Georgia resident Ben Asbury is just 23 but has been into music for a long time ("I got into punk in the third grade" claims his press release) and now records under the guise Axxa/Abraxas. The band's self-titled debut came out this week (3/4) on Captured Tracks. It was made with Jarvis Taveniere from Woods, and you can definitely hear some of his band in Axxa/Abraxas -- the folky psych-pop and occasional falsetto vocals. It's a nice mellow listen, and you can stream the whole thing (via SPIN) below.

As mentioned briefly, Axxa/Abraxas will be playing Captured Tracks' Northside Festival showcase on June 13 at Warsaw with Beach Fossils, Craft Spells, Juan Wauters, and Donovan Blanc. Tickets for that show go on sale at noon today (3/6). They'll play NYC before that, though, at Baby's All Right on March 21. No openers have been announced yet but tickets are on sale.

All Axxa/Abraxas dates are listed, along with streams, below...

The Beets' Juan Wauters released his first solo album, N.A.P. North American Poetry, last week on Captured Tracks. A little mellower than what his does with The Beets, it's a really nice record that sounds especially good on an overcast day like today. The album is available in a special gatefold edition with artwork (and a comic) by longtime visual collaborator Matthew Volz. You can stream the whole thing via Rdio.

Juan plays a record release party this Sunday (2/16) at Baby's All Right (it was originally at Rough Trade) with Household and Las Rosas. Tickets are still available.

He'll then open for the Vivian Girls' sold-out farewell show at Death by Audio on March 1, and then will be opening for Mac DeMarco 's upcoming tour including Webster Hall on April 9 with Amen Dunes and Tonstartssbandht. Tickets for Webster Hall are still available as well.

Sebadoh @ Bowery Ballroom, 2012 (more by Bryan Bruchman)
Sebadoh

More Rough Trade shows this month are moving due to the still-unresolved sound/noise issues they're dealing with, including Friday's Lanterns on the Lake show (2/7) which is now an early show at Baby's All Right (doors 7:30 PM) with Jesse Woods and Andy Shauf (tickets); and Saturday's Mutual Benefit show (2/8) which is now at Knitting Factory (tickets).

Moves since we last posted include: the American Royalty show with Ghenghis Hans on 2/13 is now at Baby's All Right (doors at midnight, tickets here).

Juan Wauters was to play a record release show at RT on  February 15 with Household and Las Rosas. That has been moved to the next day (2/16) at Baby's All Right. Tickets for that are on sale now.

Glasvegas's 2/20 show has been moved to Knitting Factory and tickets are still available.

Sebadoh's 2/25 show with Octagrape is now at Baby's All Right and tickets are still available.

Quilt's 2/28 show with Weyes Blood is now an early show (doors 7:30 PM) at Mercury Lounge. Tickets are still available.

Lastly, as mentioned, Sondre Lerche's two shows at RT on 2/21 and 2/23 are now one show at Baby's All Right on 2/20. Tickets are still available.

Alex Bleeker at Brooklyn Bowl in 2012 (more by Tracy Allison)
Alex Bleeker

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

SISU, Young Boys, VBA, Willy Muse, Brandon of Crocodiles (DJ) @ Cake Shop
When Sandra Vu isn't busy drumming in Dum Dum Girls, she's also making gothy shoegaze with her own project SISU (which also features DDGs guitarist Jules live). Willy Muse, who you may have caught playing bass in Widowspeak, also does his own thing at this show.

Juan Wauters @ Other Music
Juan Wauters is a very busy guy, playing many hometown shows with his band The Beets and also doing the solo thing quite often, like tonight at Other Music. Free admission, 8 PM start.

Sun Araw, Mark McGuire @ Body Actualized Center
Sun Araw is prepping a new album, Belomancie (out 2/18 via Drag City), and he's also got a new piece called "The (3) Vases," which he's performing from tonight. Ex-Emeralds guitarist Mark McGuire was initially DJing this show, but he is now billed as "live," making this an excellent bill for fans of ambient/experimental music.

Alex Bleeker & the Freaks, Skies @ Manhattan Inn
Alex Bleeker spends much of his time playing in Real Estate, but his own band is quite different, giving him the opportunity to dive into bluesy psychedelia. They're playing acoustic at tonight's show, which is free and starts at 10 PM.

John Hodgman @ Union Hall
You may know John Hodgman as a Daily Show correspondent, but he's also got tons of his own excellent (and hilarious) material. Tonight's another of his Secret Society shows at Union Hall.

Night Train w/ Wyatt Cenac @ Littlefield
Hop aboard Wyatt Cenac's weekly comedy show, Night Train, which this week features Marina Franklin, Joe Zimmerman, Sabrina Jalles, Lukas Kaiser, and Matt Koff.

Waxahatchee at FYF Fest 2013 (more by Wei Shi)
Waxahatchee

As discussed, Brooklyn indie trio Vivian Girls are calling it quits, but not before playing a few final shows, including two in NYC. Those shows are sure to be bittersweet, and the sweet side has just gotten even sweeter. Openers for their Brooklyn shows have been announced for both shows, and they're pretty great.

The first show, which happens at Death by Audio on March 1, will be opened by Waxahatchee (who could headline the place themselves) and Juan Wauters of The Beets. The second show, which happens at Baby's All Right on March 2, will be opened by Waxahatchee's Don Giovanni labelmates Shellshag and Northampton indie punks Potty Mouth. Both shows are sold out.

You can also catch Shellshag at the Don Giovanni Brooklyn showcases, and at DbA on 3/9 with Tuff Tits.

Juan Wauters (who is touring with Mac DeMarco but not listed for his Webster Hall show) also plays his own NYC show on 2/15 at Rough Trade (if it's open) with Household and Las Rosas (tickets).

Mac DeMarco @ Club Soda, MTL 11/23/2013
IMAGE

Mac DeMarco and his band played the 2013 M for Montreal twice last week. First, as Walter TV, where Mac just plays bass, with Pierce McGarry on vocals and guitar. Then on Saturday night, he headlined (and sold out) the 1000-capacity Club Soda. Both shows were completely bananas, featuring constant stage diving and crowd surfing, male nudity and other shenanigans. (Club Soda also got impromptu covers "Takin' Care of Business," "Message in a Bottle," "Enter Sandman," and "Stairway to Heaven" in addition to Mac-penned favorites.) Pictures from Club Soda are in this post.

After a tour of Asia and Australia, Mac's Walter TV buds are moving to Los Angeles to be a band full-time while Mac is living in Brooklyn for a while. His third album, due out next year on Captured Tracks, is in the can. We might get a taste of LP#3 here in NYC when Mac DeMarco plays a solo set at Brooklyn Night Bazaar on January 10, with Delicate Steve, Hunters and C/T domo Mike Sniper on DJ duty. Like all Brooklyn Night Bazaar shows, it's free.

That's part of a weekend presented by Panache Booking. The next night (1/11) features Imperial Teen, Dot Wiggin Band, Arp, and Juan Wauters.

More M for Montreal 2013 coverage is HERE and HERE, with more to come. More pics plus a NSFW instagram video from Mac DeMarco's set at M below...

While The Beets are still active, singer Juan Wauters will be releasing his first solo album, titled N.A.P. North American Poetry, on February 4 via Captured Tracks (who put out the first two Beets albums). That's the cover art above, which was designed, as with all of Juan's records, by Matthew Volz. The album was made between fall 2010 and the summer of 2012 at Gary Olson's Marlborough Farms studio. You can stream "Water" from the record and watch a new video interview (made by Volz) below.

Juan has a few shows coming up, including a free one tonight (11/7) at Molasses Books in Bushwick (770 Hart St) with Flower Girl playing as well. He'll also play Queens Museum on Saturday (11/9, 4 PM) for the opening of Matthew Volz's stage installation as part of Queens International biennial; and then November 14 at Shea Stadium with Soft Black, Bully, and Beat Radio.

Meanwhile, The Beets (who just released a new single of Howard Stern covers) have shows too, including one in NYC on November 16 at Glasslands with Flower Girl and Jimmy Whispers. Tickets for the Glasslands show are on sale now.

All Juan Wauters and The Beets tour dates are listed, along with the new track stream, below...

John Wesley Coleman

To call Austin's John Wesley Coleman a musician doesn't really do him justice. He also paints, writes and is a funny, charming on-stage banterer/storyteller. He's a great songwriter, too. Last year he released The Last Donkey Show via Goner and back in April knocked-out Trans Am Summer Blues via Tic Tac Totally, and will release The Lizard of Pop in early 2014 for Burger.

Coleman is currently on tour and will play two shows in NYC, both with Memphis garage rockers The Sheiks: tonight (10/23) at Death by Audio with The Beets' Juan Wauters and Mail the Horse; and Cake Shop on Friday (10/25) with more bands TBA.

All JWC dates (many of which but not all are with The Sheiks) are listed, along with a couple videos and a Sheiks album stream, below...

The Flaming Lips at Wellmont Theatre in May (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)
Flaming Lips

Browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows. Here are some highlights...

The Flaming Lips, Tame Impala, The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger @ Terminal 5
Two bands who love making far-out psychedelia, but not without keeping a sense of pop in mind -- The Flaming Lips and Tame Impala -- team up to co-headline two nights at Terminal 5. Opening both nights is The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger, because with that much psychedelic pop at one show, you gotta have a Lennon on the bill, right?

Big Boi, Killer Mike @ Brooklyn Bowl
Big Boi's currently the more active member of Outkast and while his solo stuff isn't anything to ignore, you can usually count on hearing tons of 'Kast at his shows too. His frequent collaborator and fellow ATLien Killer Mike opens the show.

Liam McEneaney @ The Bell House
Funny guy Liam EcEneaney is throwing a release party for his new CD, Comedian, and has invited a bunch of equally clever friends Christian Finnegan, Jim Gaffigan, Todd Barry, Gilbert Gottfried, Hannibal Buress, plus musical guests Starlight Girls and The Summer Replacements. Tickets are still available.

Fountains of Wayne, Soul Asylum, Evan Dando @ State Theatre (NJ)
Fountains of Wayne headline this nostalgia-tinged tour that includes fellow '90s alt-stars Soul Asylum and Evan Dando. Don't be ashamed to sing along. This tour has two more NYC-area shows, playing Port Chester's Capitol Theater tomorrow, and then on Saturday (10/5) will be at Webster Hall.

Steely Dan @ Beacon Theatre
Donald Fagen and Walter Becker continue their seven-night run at Beacon, and theme of tonight's show is "Greatest Hits Night." So no need to scream for "Rikki Don't Lose That Number," they're probably going to play that. Tickets are still available.

Jenny Hval, Ludwig Persik @ Mercury Lounge
Norway's Jenny Hval makes the kind of forward-thinking art pop that falls somewhere between Laurie Anderson and PJ Harvey. Tonight's her first of two NYC shows. Check out the kinda NSFW video for "Innocence Is Kinky," below.

Warpaint, DJ Nelleke @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
It's been over two years since LA dream pop quartet Warpaint were in NYC, but that finally changes tonight. There's been talk of a new album -- which will be their first since their 2010 debut -- so hopefully we'll hear some of that new stuff tonight. Sold out.

Jagwar Ma, DJ Angus Gruzman @ Glasslands
Australia's Jagwar Ma, whose debut album owes much to the '90s baggy scene, made their American debut at Mercury Lounge last night and tonight they're at Glasslands. Sold out but they'll be back in December.

Prince Rama @ Clocktower Gallery
Tonight is the premiere of Prince Rama's film, Never Forever, a free-form bit of strangeness that includes both the "twisted world of a post-apocalyptic gym queen" and a "VR robot turned pop star." It looks kind of like The Apple? After the film there's a lecture, "Pop Music and the Apocalypse," from singer Taraka Larson. The event is sold-out but you can check out the trailer below.

Tyvek, Shark?, Darlings, Juan Wauters (The Beets) @ Death By Audio
On their way back from Goner Fest, Detroit noise punks Tyvek stop by Death by Audio to trash the place with a fine line-up of local openers.

Aaron Dilloway and Richard Pinhas, Matthew Regula, John Mannion, On a Clear Day @ Saint Vitus
Former Wolf Eyes' dude Aaron Dilloway tonight will play a collaboritive show with Richard Pinhas of '70s French prog band Heldon for what surely be some mind-expanding sounds.

Twin Peaks, Lost Boy?, Flagland, The Teen Age @ Shea Stadium
Chicago youngsters Twin Peaks make sprightly indie rock are back in town for two shows, and tonight's show also features The Teen Age who make equally catchy guitar pop.

Dita Von Teese @ Gramercy Theatre
Burlesque superstar Dita Von Teese continues her four-night run at Gramercy.

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

For laughs, check out the NYC Comedy calendar too.
