Thurston Moore at Prospect Park in 2010 (more by Lori Bally)
The ninth annual NY Art Book Fair is happening from September 26-28 at MoMA PS1 with a preview being held the evening of September 25. The preview features a live set from Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore and his collaborator James Nares, as well as a DJ set from MEN/Le Tigre's JD Samson. That goes from 6-9 PM, and at 7 PM Thurston will be in PS1's lobby signing copies of his new chapbook of lyrics from his new album The Best Day. Skater/poet Mark Gonzalez will also be there for the launch and signing of Non Stop Poetry, his collection of over 145 of his zines. That's about a month before Thurston's tour with PCPC.
The fair will feature over 350 booksellers, antiquarians, artists, institutions and independent publishers from 28 countries. Here's more details:
This year's NY Art Book Fair includes an ever-growing variety of exhibitors - from the zinesters in (XE)ROX & PAPER + SCISSORS and the Small Press Dome representing publishing at its most innovative and affordable, to rare and antiquarian dealers offering out-of-print books and ephemera from art and artist book history. NYABF-classic Friendly Fire focuses on the intersections of art and activism, and with the support of the Norwegian Consulate General in New York, the NYABF and Printed Matter presents NORWAY FOCUS: KUNSTNERBØKER, a curated selection of 23 Norwegian booksellers, institutions, artists and independent publishers.The fair is FREE and open to the public.
NYABF14 is also host to an array of programming and special events: now in its sixth year, The Classroom is a curated engagement of informal conversations, workshops, readings, and other artist-led interventions. The Contemporary Artists' Book Conference (CABC), now in its seventh year, features two full days on emerging practices and issues within art-book culture. The stage at the top of the stairs will have continuous musical performances programmed by Printed Matter, Showpaper, and Know-Wave Radio.
On the Saturday (9/27), there will also be more live music at PS1 during the fair, this time from I.U.D. (aka Lizzi Bougatsos of Gang Gang Dance and Sadie Laska of Growing), Prince Rama, Psalm Zero, Ratking, Junglepussy, Juiceboxxx, King Concubine, Dark Sister, Trollkrem, Fortunate Dad and onre more TBA.

White Lung at 4Knots 2013 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
White Lung, Mormon Crosses, Flykills @ Glasslands
White Lung continue to push punk's boundaries while keeping things quick and heavy on their new album, Deep Fantasy. Their live shows are only more intense.
Sun Araw's Blazer Double Double, Man Forever, Hiro Kone, Blazer Sound System @ Baby's All Right
Experimental musician Sun Araw plays his first of two shows of the week at Baby's All Right tonight. Strong support both nights too.
Potty Mouth, Aye Nako, Arm Candy @ Cake Shop
It's a good bill all around for scrappy, poppy punk at Cake Shop tonight with Massachusetts' Potty Mouth and two NYC bands, Aye Nako and Arm Candy.
What Cheer Brigade, Ed Schrader's Music Beat, Juiceboxxx @ Death By Audio
Providence street brass band What Cheer? Brigade headline this show that also features fun Baltimore drums-and-bass duo Ed Schrader's Music Beat, and a live-band incarnation of Juiceboxxx (who will also be celebrating his birthday tonight).
Slonk Donkerson, Le Rug, Vetter Kids, Sativa Cult @ Palisades
Good bill at Palisades tonight with local indie rock from Slonk Donkerson and Le Rug, and punk band Vetter Kids coming over from Texas.
Ovlov, Krill, Mannequin Pussy, Garcia Peoples @ Shea Stadium
Though this bill initially had Little Big League on it, they unfortunately dropped off. On the bright side, there's still plenty of quality indie rock from the rest of the bands.
Aa, Zula, Baked, Bueno @ Trans-Pecos
Aa put out their first new album in a while this year which is full of live-band-meets-electronics weirdness. Tonight they're joined by psych popsters Zula and indie rockers Baked and Bueno.
Dave Hill, Greg Barris, Larry Murphy @ Union Hall
Funny guy, occasional shirtless concertgoer and BV contributor Dave Hill will be recording his new comedy album tonight. Good luck, Dave! Sold out.
American Sharks, Blackout, Ice Balloons @ Saint Vitus
Tonight Vitus hosts stoner rock from American Sharks, art punk from the TVOTR-related Ice Balloons and more.
High Contrast, Dave Q, Raw Q, DJ Seoul @ Output
Welsh drum and bass DJ and producer High Contrast (real name Lincoln Barrett) burst onto the scene at the start of the '00s and almost instantly became the biggest thing to happen to the genre since Roni Size and Goldie. He's been going strong ever since, most recently on 2012's The Agony & the Ecstasy.
Aerosmith, Slash @ Prudential Center
Two rock giants come together at Prudential Center tonight. Prepare your air guitars.
Big Terrific Comedy Show @ Cameo
Max Silvestri hosts the free weekly comedy show in the back of Williamsburg's Lovin' Cup. No word on who's performing tonight, but Max usually lets us know via his Twitter.
For all of tonight's shows, and tomorrow's, check out our NYC concert calendar.

JEFF the Brotherhood are on tour now with Delta Spirit and FIDLAR and that tour hits NYC TONIGHT (11/27) at Irving Plaza. Tickets for tonight's show are still available and we're also giving away a few pairs. Details on how to enter the contest are below.
JEFF spoke to us about their favorite music of the year and gave us a list of their top ten albums. Some of the bands on the list (like Diarrhea Planet and Heavy Cream and Skimask and Cy Barkley) are on their Infinity Cat label, but that doesn't mean we don't believe them. Check out the full list below...

SpaceGhostPurrp at BV-SXSW 2012 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Miami rapper/producer SpaceGhostPurrp, who played our hip hop stage at Hotel Vegan this past SXSW, is set to releases his debut commercial album, Mysterious Phonk: The Chronicles of SpaceGhostPurrp, on his new label, 4AD, a label otherwise best known for their post-punk/goth/dream pop/etc output. You can grab a new track from the album, "No Evidence," via a widget below, and check out the new video for "The Black God." The album artwork and tracklist are also below.
SpaceGhostPurrp will be making a few appearances in NYC this week before heading overseas for his first European tour later this month. The NYC dates include the Rustie-headlined Shortcuts party at Santos on Tuesday (5/15) and The Standard Hotel on Wednesday (5/16). Tickets for the Santos show with Rustie are still available.
There was also an SOB's show announced in some places, but that show is probably not happening. The Santos show will be the second time SpaceGhostPurrp played a "Shortcuts" party.

Jeff The Brotherhood at Fun Fun Fun Fest (more by BBG)
Like last year, Jeff the Brotherhood are heading down to Texas for SXSW this year, but not before they finish a European tour that is underway now.

MNDR (aka Amanda Warner) opened the Brooklyn show at Monster Island on Wednesday night (11/18). Shouting, singing and rapping over techno-centric beats, she showed respect to tour-mate Juiceboxxx as well as a strong influence by him. She fared better than her mentor though, who played a super-brief, possibly truncated, set of less than 20 minutes. Opening with his most well-known tune/statement of intent, "Thunder Jam #5", Juiceboxxx positioned himself in sort of a "me against the crowd/world" way, alienating himself from the audience. It was unfortunate, because a basement show like this one could have been the ideal place to see him.
Even without their signature boomboxes, Javelin brought much-needed positive energy to the room with highlights like expanded versions of "Mossy Woodland" and "Vibrationz", as well as their skewed "Into The Groove" interpretation and some worldly tropical beats that turned the place into a dance party. The energy stayed with the crowd, who were more than happy to stick around after and dance to pop hits, ranging from Olivia Newton-John to Jay-Z, courtesy of Todd P's iPod.
Javelin live is not to be slept on. Catch them Friday (TONIGHT) with Sleigh Bells (who played Le Poisson Rouge last night) at a new DIY all ages venue in Manhattan called "Under 100." Get there early - Javelin goes on first (9pm). More details about that show and pictures below...
"As I type this post, I can still feel the dry crunchy residue of canned whipped cream in my hair. Oh well, its a small price to pay. Best Fwends at Emo's, the show was bonkers." [The Peen Scene]Dates below...
Spank Rock & Amanda Blank @ The Shank in March (by Tod Seelie)
"What went on inside soon became the stuff of legend, so much so that very few revelers were willing to go on the record for this story, even to admit they'd visited The Shank. Engel declined to comment specifically on The Shank's reputation as a drug den, but admitted to the obvious: "We weren't exactly policing things." Prerequisite hedonisms aside, the vast, windowless space seemed to radiate depravity from its very walls, from its unmarked entrance to the plank patrons had to traverse over murky waters to get to the much-abused bathrooms. "I bought the same jeans twice," explained Telli Gramz, also of Ninjasonik. "I like dirty white jeans, but these just got destroyed. The Shank will fuck your shit up."...A performance by Spank Rock and Amanda Blank and Ninjasonik also marked the end (of the day on the second stage) of this year's Siren Festival. Video of Lightspeed Champion (with a guest from We Are Scientists) playing at the recent Jon Wiley benefit at the Shank, and some other videos, below...
...According to many people I spoke to, the club's real decline started when Engel asked [Jonathan] Toubin to take a Saturday off and booked a one-off party thrown by promoters Bikes in the Kitchen. The evening began with sets from local party fixtures like Juiceboxxx, Ninjasonik and Team Robespierre, and culminated in a performance by Spank Rock and Amanda Blank."... [NY Press]
Ninjasonik @ MHOW Jan 2009 (more by Zach Stern)
Just down the street from the Danbro Studios Warehouse in the Bushwick/East Williamsburg part of Brooklyn is a (new-ish?) loft space called The Jungle (286 Meserole St) which has hosted some events in the past, and which is scheduled to host a big show that caught our eye on Saturday, August 22nd. Bands listed (though not totally confirmed) include Ponytail, Japanther, The DeathSet, Double Dagger, Team Robespierre, Ninjasonik, Juiceboxxx, Cerebral Ballzy, Boogie Boarder and Snakes Say Hiss.
The most unconfirmed band on that bill is Ponytail, who are more-officially playing a summer show with Mission of Burma and Fucked Up at the Williamsburg Waterfront on July 12th (or are they?). The Waterfront show is a few days before Ponytail go out on tour with Yeasayer (dates below).
Many of those other bands have other NYC shows scheduled sooner too. On June 28th, Studio B will host a day party with Team Robespierre, Ninjasonik, Hearts Revolution, Anamanaguchi and others. Japanther, Ninjasonik and Deathset will be at Lit Fuse Cyclery (409 Willoughby, Brooklyn) for a show on July 4th. Then, Ninjasonik and Japanther team up again for a show at the Whitney on July 11th.
Yeasayer is playing a free show in Manhattan over the summer. All/more tour dates for everyone, below...

sad but triumphant nightUSAISAMONSTER's final show happened Saturday, May 9th at the newly-decorated Market Hotel in Brooklyn. The bill included Awesome Color, Juiceboxxx, Eloe Omoe, Tunnel of Love, Bow Ribbons, Jason Crumer, Animental, Hot Box and Buck Gooter. At one point the show was stopped and the cops showed up because someone passed out. They left the club in an ambulance (I hope he is OK!), but the show went on. More pictures (including the ambulance) below...

Was it as epic as the Bjork/Dirty Projectors show? I mean will it live on in infamy like that show? I mean will you be telling your kids 20 years from now how you were at this show?
