holy mountain

It's Fleet Week here in New York and with Memorial Day Weekend ahead, what better way to celebrate than a big, crazy party with Karin Dreijer Andersson from The Knife DJing? Presented by nightlife promoter Ladyfag, the event's called "Holy Mountain" and happens on Saturday (5/23) at Slake. Also DJing: Dgeral (who'll be spinning with Karin), Misshapes cofounder Greg K and lots more.

It's $10 before 11:30 PM and $15 after, or $10 all night if in "SERIOUS Fleet week or Space LQQK." Details and flyer are below. This is the first we've heard from Karin since The Knife called it quits following their Shaking the Habitual tour last year .

In related news, Ladyfag is also part of this year's Pop Souk which happens May 31 at Webster Hall. Pop Souk mixes club culture with shopping: "a pilgrimage where the cool cats come to socialize, listen to DJs... & shop!" It goes from noon - 6 PM and will take over the entirety of Webster Hall that day, and is free to attend. Flyer and vendor list for Pop Souk is below...

Swervedriver at BV-SXSW 2015 (more by Tim Griffin)

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

Swervedriver, Gateway Drugs @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Arguably the heaviest, most rocking of the original UK shoegaze acts, Swervedriver returned this year with their first new album since the '90s -- and it's pretty damn good. But expect to hear favorites like "Duel" and "Rave Down," too, at their NYC shows this weekend.

Patti Smith & Jesse Smith @ Le Poisson Rouge
Punk pioneer and NYC icon Patti Smith has been giving a variety of performances lately, and this one's a collaboration with her daughter Jesse for the "Hands On Live" benefit concert, which raises funds for Terakoya, "a new naturopathy clinic/workshop to be built in the upstate Catskill Mountains."

The Get Up Kids, PUP, Restorations @ Stone Pony
Nineties-era greats The Get Up Kids last reunited in NYC before every '90s emo band you could think of started doing the same thing, and now they're finally back for another round. They don't hit NYC proper, but will be in NJ tonight and Long Island tomorrow. Great openers too: poppy Canadian punks PUP and Philly's heart-on-sleeve rockers Restorations.

La Dispute, Title Fight, The Hotelier @ Webster Hall
This is a killer triple bill with two always-progressing co-headliners -- La Dispute whose newest stuff is progressive post-hardcore with a hint of spoken word, and Title Fight who are currently toeing the line between punk and shoegaze. Cathartic emo band The Hotelier open the show. Sold out.

Jon Spencer Blues Explosion @ The Point
The JSBX released their cracking new album Freedom Tower: No Wave Dance Party 2015 this week and are celebrating by playing shows in every borough. Tonight takes them to the Bronx where they'll play a benefit for Hunts Point community center The Point.

Diamond Rugs, New Madrid, Justin Collins @ Bowery Ballroom
This supergroup -- featuring John McCauley & Robbie Cowell of Deer Tick, Ian Saint Pe formerly of Black Lips, T. Hardy Morris of Dead Confederate, Steve Berlin of Los Lobos and Bryan Dufresne of Six Finger Satellite -- released their  second album this year and bring their good-time rock n' roll to NYC tonight.

Har Mar Superstar, Kahli Abdu, VHS Safari @ Knitting Factory
A fearless and funny performer, Har Mar Superstar brings the party -- and his R&B/rock/pop songs -- to wherever he plays. This one starts at 11:30 PM and will go late.

Untold, Egyptrixx, Tessela (DJ Set) @ The Wick
The "Tinnitus" series continues tonight, pairing together UK bass producer Untold with Canada's UK-inspired Egyptrixx.

Ikonika, Jubilee, DJ HVAD, Tripletrain, Geng, Dave Q, "Very Special Guest" @ Palisades
UK Hyperdub-signed producer Ikonika (aka Sara Abdel-Hamid) makes the kind of dubstep her label's best known for, with releases dating back to 2008. Tonight's show has a "Very Special Guest." Any guesses?

Sannhet, Kayo Dot, Oneirogen @ Saint Vitus
Brooklyn trio Sannhet make crushing instrumental post-metal and their live show (killer light show included) can really overwhelm you if you let it. Tonight's their release show forRevisionist, and it's a great bill all around with Toby Driver's genre-less collective Kayo Dot and one man metal band Oneirogen.

Tobias Jesso Jr., Okay Kaya @ Baby's All Right
Canadian singer-songwriter TJJ recalls the early-'70s days of Harry Nilsson, Randy Newman and John Lennon on his new album, Goon. Will he live up to the hype?

Teen Suicide, LVL UP, Amanda X, Crying, Flagland, Washer @ Brooklyn Night Bazaar
This whole bill is a pretty great showcase of the burgeoning Northeast indie rock scene, with Ricky Eat Acid's punk band Teen Suicide, '90s-esque rockers LVL UP, punky indie rock trio Amanda X, chiptune-gone-Rush trio Crying, garage rockers Flagland, and the shambolic sounds of Washer.

The Budos Band, Spires @ Brooklyn Bowl
Where their first three albums traffiked in funky afropop, the Budos Band went heavy (as in almost proto-metal) on last year's Burnt Offering which works a lot more organically than you might think. This is their first of two Brooklyn Bowl shows.

Shakey Graves, Nikki Lane @ Warsaw
Quickly-rising Austin folk singer Shakey Graves plays his second of two NYC shows with Nikki Lane tonight.

Hallelujah the Hills, Adam Schatz (of Landlady) @ Bell House
Boston cult indie rockers Hallelujah the Hills have been at it for ten years, developing a very loyal fan base. Anthemic choruses abound.

Dropdead, Fucking Invincible, V-Sect, Narcoleptics @ The Acheron
Providence hardcore vets Dropdead have been going strong since '91 with most of their original lineup, and their newest material is just as crushing as their classic stuff. Fucking Invincible are not to miss either.

Las Rosas, Boytoy, Threats (members of Drowners), Winstons @ Alphaville
It's a gaggle of garage rock in the back room of Bushwick bar Alphaville tonight, headlined by the very '60s-ish Las Rosas.

Ceremony @ Kinfolk 94 (6:45 PM)
Ceremony's upcoming new album has them moving even further away from their powerviolence roots, this time towards something that sounds inspired by Joy Division. They'll be playing songs from that album at this intimate, early show tonight.

Baked, Bueno, Leapling, Weed Hounds, Pupppy @ Shea Stadium
Tonight's Shea show brings together a handful of regulars on Brooklyn's current indie rock scene.

Deborah Harry @ Cafe Carlyle
Blondie singer Deborah Harry continues her residency at Upper East side cabaret supper club Cafe Carlyle tonight. It runs through April 4.

Bob's Burger's Live @ Beacon Theater
The entire main cast of FOX's charming animated sitcom are on hand for this event tonight for individual standup segments, a table read of an upcoming episode and an audience Q&A.

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

photo: Eyehategod at Europa in 2010 (more by Samantha Marble)

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

Nude Beach, Shellshag, The Hamiltons, Mal Blum, Black Wine, Crow Bait, Chris Gethard (host) @ Knitting Factory
Tonight's the first of three Don Giovanni Records showcases at Knitting Factory this month. All of them have great lineups, and tonight it's '70s power pop lovers Nude Beach, NYC DIY veterans Shellshag, Ramones-loving/"Dirty Work'-inspired punks The Hamiltons (who are maybe actually The Ergs), singer/songwriter Mal Blum, indie rockers Black Wine, alt-country punks Crow Bait, and comedian Chris Gethard as your host.

Eyehategod, Mortals, Blackout, Scowl @ Saint Vitus
Sludge legends Eyehategod are still touring in support of their excellent 2014 self-titled LP, and tonight the begin a sold-out 2-night stand at Saint Vitus. Different openers both nights, and they're all worth catching too.

The Movielife, Crime in Stereo, Pass Away @ Irving Plaza
Late '90s/early '00s Long Island melodic hardcore band The Movielife broke up in '03 after two albums of Lifetime/Gorilla Biscuits worship and a third album and EP that pushed that sound in new directions. They briefly reunited in 2010-11, and now they're thankfully back once again. Tonight's their first of two sold-out Irving Plaza shows with their pals Crime In Stereo. Opening this one is Pass Away (mem I Am the Avalanche, Crime In Stereo).

Porches, Frankie Cosmos, Krill, Sheer Mag @ Bowery Ballroom
Porches and related band Frankie Cosmos have been local staples for a while now, and their profile has clearly risen, as proven by tonight's sold-out Bowery Ballroom show, their biggest headlining appearance yet. They've got some talented friends to open, including quirky indie rockers Krill and classic rock-inspired garage rockers Sheer Mag.

Empire! Empire! (I Was A Lonely Estate), Warren Franklin & The Founding Fathers, Paper Streets, For Everest @ Palisades
Empire! Empire! returned last year with their first album since their 2009 debut, but now they're reissuing that debut and playing it in full on this tour. Warren Franklin just put out a split album with Kind of Like Spitting, and if you like KOLS, you'd probably dig Warren too.

Todd Edwards, Beautiful Swimmers, Bobby Renz @ American Museum of Natural History
Dance music veteran Todd Edwards has a long history, but he's been in the spotlight as of late thanks to collaborations with Daft Punk and associations with Disclosure. Tonight he DJs the ongoing One Step Beyond series at the Museum of Natural History, and Maxmillion Dunbar's duo with Ari Goldman, Beautiful Swimmers, open.

Jeffrey Lewis, Diane Cluck, The Spookfish @ Nola Darling
Two great artists with ties to the anti-folk scene, Jeffrey Lewis and Diane Cluck, begin a tour together tonight, their first of two NYC stops on the tour. It's sold out, but there will be a few tickets at the door.

Animal Collective (DJ Set) @ Brooklyn Bowl
Animal Collective continue their DJ residency at Brooklyn Bowl tonight with everyone except Panda Bear in tow.

Dre Skull, Obey City, Jubilee, Figgy, Sleepyhead, Chris Patrick @ Lot 45
Tonight's Broke City party at Lot 45 in Bushwick (411 Troutman) has a handful of quality DJs to keep you dancing all night long. Free before midnight.

Natalie Prass, Lady Lady, Small Wonder @ Rough Trade
Natalie Prass just picked up a ton of buzz (and a ton of Disney comparisons) for her debut album. Does she live up to the hype? Those with tickets to tonight's sold-out show will find out.

Algiers, Beliefs, The Flag @ Baby's All Right
London-via-Atlanta band Algiers make gothy/industrial soul, or soulful goth-industrial. If you're not sold on the recordings, word is Algiers, who just signed to Matador, are a see-it-live kind of thing. Also on the bill are Toronto's Beliefs who bring real muscle and songwriting chops to their brand of shoegaze.

Stranger Cat, Little Strike, Salt Cathedral @ Chelsea Market
Stranger Cat, the electronic art pop project of Cat Martino, headlines tonight's installmente of Paper Garden Records' Friday shows at Chelsea Market.

Violent Bullshit, IYEZ, Aircrafting, Hints @ Union Pool
While screamo pioneers Orchid are long gone, its members are scattered across a few solid newer bands, including Violent Bullshit, led by Orchid vocalist Jayson Green.

Too Many Zooz, Osekre & The Lucky Bastards, Douglas and The Goodhearts @ Brooklyn Night Bazaar
Brooklyn Night Bazaar puts local crafts, microbrews, food-truck type eats, mini golf, ping pong, and live music all under one roof. Tonight's live entertainment is headlined by funky brass band Too Many Zooz. Free.

J Dilla Birthday Celebration w/ J57 & Guests @ Littlefield
This weekend would've been J Dilla's 41st birthday. Celebrate his memory with MC/producer J57, PitchBlak Brass Band, and Product.

Hannibal Buress @ The Space at Westbury
Once an underground favorite and known as comedian's comedian, Hannibal Buress is nobody's secret anymore.

La Femme at Bowery Ballroom in March (more by Amanda Hatfield)
La Femme

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

La Femme, Ejecta, Charly Bliss, Tiny Leg @ Le Poisson Rouge
France's finest motorik synthy surf band return to NYC. La Femme are a lot of fun -- you might see crowd surfing atop a keyboard -- and the undercard, including Brooklyn synthpop act Ejecta, is well-chosen.

Flying Lotus, Thundercat @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Flying Lotus has always had a little jazz in his IDM, but he fully embraces the genre on the just-released You're Dead!. His bass wizard collaborator Thundercat opens and will presumably be joining FlyLo during his set too. Things should get wacky.

Gwar, Decapitated, American Sharks @ Starland Ballroom
As part of their quest to find missing leader Oderus, the galaxy's craziest band are in the NY area as part of their "Eternal Tour 2014" featuring new members Vulvatron and Blóthar. Expect typical Gwar mayhem. It's a killer evening all-around with Decapitated and beer-loving American Sharks opening. GWAR will be in NYC proper next month.

Connan Mockasin, Quilt, Weyes Blood, Tim Koh (DJ Set), Jesper Eklow @ Baby's All Right
Part Two of Mexican Summer's two-day celebration, tonight's sold-out show is pretty killer, with ethereal songstress Weyes Blood and terrific Boston band Quilt. Headliner Connan Mockasin is the wildcard, brining an anarchic glee to his live shows. Things could get nutty. Stick around later for a separate midnight set from "OctaHate" singer Ryn Weaver.

mewithoutyou, The Appleseed Cast, Hop Along @ Irving Plaza
This is an excellent triple bill, with Philly's mewithoutYou celebrating the 10th anniversary of their art rock/post-hardcore opus Catch For Us The Foxes, veteran emo-turned-post-rockers The Appleseed Cast, and one of Philly's best newer bands Hop Along.

Rick Ross, 2 Chainz, DMX, Fabolous, Jhene Aiko, Redman, Method Man, Ashanti, Ja Rule, Warren G, Foxy Brown, Onyx, Jeremih @ Barclays Center (Def Jam 30th Anniversary)
Though Def Jam doesn't exactly have their heaviest hitters out to celebrate the label's 30th anniversary, there's still some cool stuff on this bill including a few veterans.

Rat Fist, Teenanger, The Abandos, Foster Care @ Death By Audio
Rat Fist is the new band of No Age guitarist Randy Randall and Pissed Jeans drummer Sean McGuinnes, who make exactly the kind of racket you'd expect from a resume like that. Their first NYC show ever was this past June at DbA and tonight they return to the venue. Toronto's Teenanger, meanwhile, make sneering, searing garagepunk -- a good fit. As are the other openers (Foster Care are one of NYC's most underrated bands).

Elliott Sharp @ Issue Project Room
Tonight is the premiere of Port Bou, Elliot Sharp's new opera about the final moments of philosopher Walter Benjamin's life in Port-Bou at the French-Spanish border as he flees Nazi-occupied France.

Il Sogno Del Marinaio (with Mike Watt), Gowanus @ Mercury Lounge
Mike Watt's a busy man, having been in Minutemen, fIREHOSE, The Stooges and more, and his current focus is his trio Il Sogno Del Marinaio with Italian musicians Stefano Pilia and Andrea Belfi.

Toddla T, Samo Sound Boy, Dre Skull, Jubilee @ Output
Samo Sound Boy's had a bit more success lately with his DJ Dodger Stadium duo with Jerome LOL, but tonight he's on his own to provide direct support to Ninja Tune's Toddla T for Output's weekly INPUT party.

The Twilight Sad, Christines @ Rough Trade
Scottish indie rockers The Twilight Sad reissued their 2007 debut Fourteen Autumns & Fifteen Winters this year and tonight they'll be playing it in full live.

The Blues Magoos, The Cynz @ Bowery Electric
The Blues Magoos initially had a short career in the late '60s that produced a handful of influential psych/garage rock songs including their popular single "(We Ain't Got) Nothin' Yet" and their version of "Tobacco Road," which later appeared on the first Nuggets compilation. Now they've got a new album out and this is the release show.

Dope Body, Big Ups, Slonk Donkerson @ The Studio at Webster Hall
Between Dope Body and Big Ups, there will be no lack of very loud, very distorted guitars at the Studio at Webster Hall tonight. Dope Body do it again at Palisades tomorrow with Rat Fist.

Xylouris & White, Bo Ningen @ Union Pool
Tonight's headliners are the duo of Dirty Three's Jim White and Cretan folk musician George Xylouris. Their debut album, Goats, mixes Xylouris' traditional lute style and White's avant leanings. Pretty interesting, as are openers Bo Ningen who are like a Chinese action fantasy as metal-prog band (but from Japan).

Cheap Girls, Beach Slang, Signals Midwest, Lee Corey Oswald @ Asbury Lanes
Cheap Girls and Beach Slang are a great double bill of two newer bands who likely would've been all over rock radio 20 years ago. The tour hit NYC earlier this week and now it's nearby in NJ.

Homeboy Sandman, ScienZe, Cavalier, I Am Many @ Glasslands
Queens rapper Homeboy Sandman put out his fifth album, Hallways, this past September via Stones Throw, and tonight's his first NYC show since its release.

Royal Blood, Kan Wakan @ Marlin Room at Webster Hall
UK rock duo Royal Blood's self-titled debut is one of 12 records up for this year's prestigious Mercury Prize with some prognosticators saying it's one of the frontrunners. Kinda sounds like run-of-the-mill rock to us but maybe you wanna see what all the fuss is about anyway.

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

Disclosure in Austin in January (More by Tim Griffin)

James Blake already announced a DJ night at the venue for June 6 (tickets) and now Disclosure have announced they'll DJ the venue a day earlier (6/5) with Kaytranada and Jubilee, plus Bodhi in the Panther Room.

In its place, 285 Kent will instead host a Lit City/Fade to Mind/Night Slugs party with a bunch of the regulars, including Bok Bok, Kingdom, L-Vis 1990, Rizzla, MikeQ, Jubilee, and J-Cush. Not a bad last minute replacement. Tickets for tonight's party are on sale now.

Volcano Choir

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

Volcano Choir (w/ Justin Vernon), Sylvan Esso @ Webster Hall
Bon Iver's been quiet lately, but luckily main man Justin Vernon has been far from it (I don't think he knows how to be anything else). He's collaborated with a ton of artists this year (Kanye, Polica, Blind Boys of Alabama), put out a record with his blues band The Shouting Matches, and now he's got one out with Volcano Choir, his collaborative project with Collections of Colonies of Bees. Their new album is the most similar to Bon Iver of all his side projects, and tonight you can see what their live show has got to offer at Webster Hall. Opening the show is Sylvan Esso, the new duo of Mountain Man's Amelia Meath and Megafaun's Nick Sanborn.

Stay Positive, ITAL (D), Shannon F (DJ), Evan Michael (DJ) @ Glasslands
Stay Positive makes the kind of '90s pop-house that Disclosure helped bring back into style, and tonight the UK producer makes his US debut at this BrooklynVegan co-presented show. Tickets are still available.

Basilica Sound Scape w/ Teengirl Fantasy, Pure X, No Joy, Cass McCombs, DIIV @ Basilica Hudson
It's the second day of Hudson, NY's Basilica Sound Scape festival, and tonight's lineup may not be as diverse as yesterday's, but it's excellent all the same. Tonight they've got psychedelic dance duo Teengirl Fantasy, Montreal shoegazers No Joy, dream pop trio Pure X, prolific songwriter Cass McCombs, some band that just played with blink-182 called DIIV, and more.

Zola Jesus, JG Thirlwell @ Out Lady of Lebanon Cathedral
Having just released Versions, an orchestral reworking of many of her songs. Tonight you can hear it live, with help from arranger JG Thirwell and strings courtesy the Wordless Music Orchestra. A few tickets are still available.

D.O.A., Disaster Strikes, Agitator, Stale Phish @ Europa
Canada has been churning out a ridiculous amount of great punk lately (White Lung, Single Mothers, METZ, Greys, Nu Sensae, etc), but don't forget that's not a new thing. Back in the late '70s/early '80s when bands like Black Flag, The Germs, Minor Threat, The Misfts, etc were shaping a now-classic style of hardcore, Vancouver's D.O.A were doing the same thing, and their early records are essential listening for that era. After 35 years of making music, the band are now on their farewell tour, which hits NYC tonight.

The Dirtbombs @ Shinola Flagship NYC
Detroit garage vets The Dirtbombs are in town to play the block party opening for bike/watch store Shinola's new NYC location. Their new album Ooey Gooey Chewy Ka-blooey! is an ode to '60s bubblegum and a lot of fun. Dirtbombs are on at 3 PM.

Alt-J, Royal Canoe @ Hammerstein Ballroom
A year ago, Alt-J were playing Glasslands and Mercury Lounge. Since then, their debut album, An Awesome Wave, won the Mercury Prize and the band have been playing bigger venues every time through. And after a summer of playing big outdoor festivals, they're probably ready for somewhere like Hamerstein.

Majical Cloudz, Moon King @ Mercury Lounge
Montreal's Majical Cloudz make soulful, minimal music that can be a captivating live experience, due mainly to Devon Welsh intense stage presence. This is the first of two NYC shows this weekend, both of which are with Toronto's Moon King who are definitely worth getting there early for.

Screaming Females, Waxahatchee, Tenement, Heaven's Gate @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Three Don Giovanni bands, Screaming Females, Waxahatchee, and Tenement, are on a tour together this year and coming to NYC for shows at MHOW tonight and Bowery Ballroom on Tuesday. The tour is a nice celebration for this label, which has been around for ten years but experienced a serious rise in public attention this year, and these should be some great shows.

Ghet20 Gothik DJs, Mike Q, Byrell the Great, Jubilee, $hayne, Venus X @ Output
A number of names on NYC's underground electronic scene come together for an Aaliyah tribute at Output tonight.

El Ten Eleven, Eliot Lipp @ Bowery Ballroom
Post rock instrumentalists El Ten Eleven released Transitions last year and are still touring behind it. Tickets are still available.

Strngrs, Lightning Dust, Louise Burns, Eros and the Eschaton @ Pianos
What started as a Black Mountain side project, duo Lightning Dust now have three albums under their belt, most recently, Fantasy, having been released this summer finds them adding electronics to their psychedelic folk sound.

Phone Home, Psychic Teens, Weird Womb, Slow Warm Death @ Shea Stadium
This whole bill should be great, but two bands of exceptional note are Philly post-punks Psychic Teens, who recently released the very solid Come LP, and Brooklyn garage punks Slow Warm Death. SWD is fronted by John Galm (Snowing, Street Smart Cyclist), but he does a much different style in this band, and does it very well at that.

Kayo Dot, Ahleuchatistas @ The Bowery Electric
Toby Driver's long-running Kayo Dot defy easy categorization, part heavy riffage, part chamber ensemble.

Computer Magic, Heliotropes, Soda Shop @ Glasslands
Tonight's a disparate but nonetheless quality bill of local acts: synthy Computer Magic, the riff-rock of Heliotropes and indiepop stylings of Soda Shop.

NGUZUNGUZU, Dubbel Dutch, J-Cush, Durban @ Coco 66
It's another Lit City Rave at 285 Kent, and as usual they've got a lineup that will keep you dancing all night. It's headlined by LA weirdo-bass duo Nguzunguzu, and also features Dubbel Dutch, and J-Cush and Durban going b2b. UPDATE: this was supposed to happen at 285 Kent but is now happening at Coco 66 in Greenpoint.

Summer Thunder w/ Gentlemen Jets, Martin Crane, Dungeonesse (DJ), D. Jane Gherkin (DJ) @ Union Pool
Union Pool's free backyard Saturday series rolls on through September and this week is brought to you by the folks at Secretly Canadian. We're not sure who Gentlemen Jets are, but we do know that Brazos' singer Martin Crane will perform a solo set. 2PM - 6PM.

Tiger Flowers, Meek Is Murder, Johnny Booth, Hivesmasher, So Hideous @ The Grand Victory
Two killer NYC hardcore bands, Tiger Flowers and Meek Is Murder (who have a split video out), team up to pulverize Grand Victory tonight. If you're going to this sure-to-be-wild show, don't miss local post-metal crew So Hideous either.

Anathema, Alcest @ Gramercy Theater
Once a black metal band, France's Alcest have gotten progressively more shoegaze with each album (their latest being 2012's Les Voyages de l'Ame), and tonight they bring their walls of sound to Gramercy Theater on their tour with Anathema.

Save Domino Party @ The Ides
The Domino Sugar Factory is scheduled to be torn down this month, but the "Save Domino" campaign is still at it, beyond the lit sign on the side of that building. Tonight there's a "Save Domino" party happening -- somewhat ironically -- at the Wythe Hotel's Ides rooftop bar. Dragons of Zynth, Heaven, and See Through will play live and comedian Seth Herzog will be your host for the evening. RSVP for the party by emailing savedominoevent@gmail.com.

Danny Brown, who has a tour with Action Bronson on the way, is saying he'll release his new album, Old, at some point this October, and he just released a new song (that may or may not appear on the album) produced by London's Darq E Freaker.

Then on Saturday after Warm Up, True Panther is hosting an unofficial party at Williamsburg Italian restaurant ISA's upstairs space (348 Wythe, right by Death by Audio) with some of those same names, including Hyetal and Zora Jones (who DJs b2b with Sinjin Hawke), in addition to A$AP's DJ J. Scott and Loric (of Water Borders, who played Warm Up in 2011). That one goes from 10 to 3 and is FREE.

Stream "Hand Stand" below...

Addison Groove

UK producer Anthony Williams, who has previously recorded as Headhunter, released his debut LP under his new Addison Groove moniker earlier this month on Modeselektor's 50 Weapons label. The album is called Transistor Rhythm and puts Addison Groove next in the recent line of producers bringing Chicago juke and footwork into the UK bass scene. Stream clips of the album below alongside full streams of the tracks "Savage Henry" and "Bad Things."

The two producers will make their way to NYC this weekend for a Brooklyn show on Saturday (4/28) at Glasslands with Jubilee. Tickets for the Brooklyn show are on sale now. All dates are listed below.

If I were throwing a rave in Brooklyn, Grand Prospect Hall (you know, the place where all your dreams will come true), would definitely be my first venue choice. The place is amazing for so many reasons. Unfortunately though, despite what Drop the Lime's own website says, they are not playing there tonight (2/19).

What Drop the Lime are actually playing, along with Star Eyes, Jubilee, Soulslinger, Vinny From the Bronx (I just like his name), and MANY other artists, in addition to a "video Game Truck featuring every video game and system imaginable", a "Moon Bounce decorated with UV paintings and crazy lights", and "Free Fresh Fruit by NYCR", is Glow Naughty Neon 2 which is taking place at The Cultural Performing Arts Center of Brooklyn (1020 E 48TH ST). 8pm-4am. "16 to glow, 21 to get naughty."

Drop the Lime are also on the lineup of Filter's SXSW events this year (along with Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, YACHT, Miike Snow, and many more).
