Buckwheat Groats

Tonight (8/22) at Palisades, the new-ish Bushwick venue hosts a lineup of a few New York City rappers with a sense of humor. There's Kitty who you already know, plus Buckwheat Groats, Awkwafina, and Swag Toof, along with electronic musician Maxo. Tickets are on sale.

Buckwheat Groats recently put out a video for their single "Tom Hanks," a first-person braggadocio trap rap song from the famous actor's point of view. The awesomely photoshopped video can be watched below.

Awkafina's got a couple videos of her own worth watching, including "NYC Bitche$," which includes the choice lyric, "New York City bitch, that's where I come from, not where I moved to on mom and dad's trust fund." That one came out last year, but it'd make a great response to this year's Brooklyn Girls video. Another, "My Vag," is a more intentional response (obviously to that "My Dick" song) and includes more choice lyrics: "Awkwafina's a genius, and her vagina is 50 times better than a penis."

Awkwafina has other upcoming NYC shows too, including two more this weekend. She plays an 8 PM set on Saturday (8/23) at The Bushwick Hotel's Tiki Time Bomb Party ((71 Ingraham St) and then at midnight she DJs the '90s dance party at The Manhattan Inn in Greenpoint. On August 27, it's Awkwafina Night at Fat Buddha (212 Avenue A) with Bebe Panthere, Rekstizzy, DJ Furen and PaulTrizz; and on August 30 she plays the Kollaboration New York show at NYU's Skirballl Center.

Kitty Pryde at 285 Kent in 2013 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Kitty Pryde

"After all these years of (usually) fooling bouncers, Kitty (Pryde) is finally turning 21 for real," reads the Facebook event for the rapper's 21st birthday party. It's one of her Candy From Strangers parties (the parties Kitty does with Chippy Nonstop and Lina Loves It), and though those parties used to happen at 285 Kent, due to the venue's questionable future, which now happen at Leftfield (87 Ludlow St), where they also threw their halloween party.

The Facebook event also asks you to "please be as 21 as Kitty will, and expect to turn up the way we normally do at Candy From Strangers." Performances and DJs TBA.

Flyer and a video below...

Brooklyn Night Bazaar will be back for a third year of weekend shopping, eating and live music. They're in a new space -- 165 Banker in Greenpoint -- that's permanent and will now not just be the holidays. Starting in November it will happen every Friday and Saturday night. The initial announced music line-up is this:

11/1 Spank Rock, Dope Body
11/2 Frankie Rose
11/15 Tragedy (BeeGees tribute) / Guns n' Hoses
11/16 Slow Knights
11/22 Bear Hands
11/23 Kitty Pryde
12/13 Small Black
12/27 Psychic TV
12/28 Psychic TV
You read that right, two nights of Psychic TV (!!!) just before New Year's. That's more like a Night Bizarre. Like last year, Brooklyn Night Bazaar is free and open to the public. There will also be ping pong and a 9-hole minigolf course.

GZA at MHOW in 2012 (more by Ryan Barkan)
GZA

In honor of the 12 universities and 60,000+ college students in Downtown Brooklyn, Northside/L Mag is teaming up with Dwntwn Brklyn to present a free with RSVP show at MetroTech Commons on Thursday (10/3) for those students (and also the general public). The show is being co-headlined by Wu-Tang member GZA and synth pop duo Tanlines, with opening sets from Kitty (Pryde) and Mas Ysa. The show goes from 5-9 PM, and if you've never been to MetroTech Commons, here's directions.

In related news, Kitty Pryde collaborator Hot Sugar released an EP, Made Man, this week which Kitty appears on, along with Antwon, Lakutis, Kool AD, Chippy Nonstop, Heems, Big Baby Gandhi, and more. You can download it (name your price) at bandcamp and stream it below. You can catch Hot Sugar live at Silent Barn on Saturday (10/5) with Logan Takahasi (of Teengirl Fantasy), Title TK, and Ogg Myst; and at 285 Kent on November 21 with Chrome Sparks and Infinity Shred (tickets).

Pictureplane at BV-SXSW 2013 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Pictureplane

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

Pictureplane, Heartsrevolution, Kitty Pryde, Chippy Nonstop, Special Guest @ 285 Kent
Neither Pictureplane nor Kitty Pryde ever fail to get the party started, so this should be a pretty fun Monday night at 285 Kent. Any guesses on who the special guest is?

Phony PPL, The Skins @ Brooklyn Bowl
Phony PPL hearken back to the hip hop and neo-soul of the '90s, and they do it well. Catch them playing a hometown show at Brooklyn Bowl tonight.

The Numerators, Wimps, Butter The Children @ Cake Shop
In between two local bands that play a whole lot are Seattle, WA's Wimps who play charming, punky indie pop. You can stream this year's Slept in Late in full below.

Hiatus Kaiyote, Rich Medina @ Knitting Factory
Last night Australia's Hiatus Kaiyote opened for Shuggie Otis in Central Park. Tonight, they bring their laid-back R&B/soul to Knitting Factory for a headlining show.

Little Comets, Like Crazy @ Mercury Lounge
Hailing from Newcastle Upon Tyne in Northern England, Little Comets play a tuneful, energetic brand of Britpop that doesn't get much attention these days -- but they do what they do very well. Their brand new album, Life is Elsewhere, can be streamed via Spotify.

Toni Braxton @ Wingate Field (FREE)
The free Martin Luther King Jr. Concert Series at Wingate Field continues today with Toni Braxton.

Wyatt Cenac continues his weekly comedy show, Night Train, at Littlefield tonight. For more laughs, check out the NYC Comedy calendar too.

Kitty Pryde at 285 Kent in February (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Kitty Pryde

So Kitty (Pryde) may not actually be on the new Kanye album, but she did just put out her own new song, "Barbie Jeep." It's Kitty spitting fast(er than she did on "Okay Cupid") over a rattling beat from NYC producer Hot Sugar. Check it out below (via Noisey).

Meanwhile, Hot Sugar is playing a hometown show on Sunday (6/16) at Knitting Factory as part of the Northside Festival with indie rap trio Ratking and Normally Important. Tickets for Sunday's show are on sale, and you can also try to get in with your Northside badge.

Ratking also play another hometown show as part of Warm Up at MoMA PS1 on August 3 with Marcellus Pittman, Jackmaster, Dre Skull, and Rizzla. TIckets for that show are still available.

Song stream below...

Anamanaguci

Anamanaguchi is a boy band made up of hackers and producers born & raised on the Internet, currently living in New York City.

On May 14th, they [released] Endless Fantasy through their own brand new label, dream.hax - their first album since soundtracking Scott Pilgrim vs. The World in 2010.
The "boy band" will celebrate that album with possibly one of their biggest headlining shows to date in their "current" home of NYC at Irving Plaza THIS Friday (5/16) with Pictureplane and Hot Sugar. Tickets are still available. Get 'em while they're hot, sugar.

Meanwhile, you can also catch Anamanaguchi in a slightly more intimate setting at The Space in Hamden, CT tonight (5/16). It's the start of a tour that was recently extended throughout the summer. All dates, many with Chrome Sparks and Kitty Pryde, are listed below.

Head over there to add to the $176,317 they've already raised in 13 days and for more info. Head below for more album info, songs and videos to consume, and all tour dates...

Danny Brown at Knitting Factory (more by Fred Pessaro)
Danny Brown

Kitty Pryde, who is currently on tour with Danny Brown, already commented a bit on the now-infamous oral sex incident, but she goes into high-detail, and gets serious, in a new post on Noisey:

I won't go into detail about the actual events because I was pretty drunk and I don't want to tell the wrong story. I will say that it happened so quickly that nobody I talked to after the show even knew anything had happened (there was only one photo and no video--how rare is that). I will also say that whoever wrote on Reddit that Danny was "walking around the stage getting girls to grab his dick" is 100% false, and to blame someone for their own molestation is a shitty thing to do. Anybody who is exaggerating this tale to climax is also a lying fool, and to call it a blow job is even going a bit far because it was probably the fastest thing I've ever seen. "The Thing" was not a thing that Danny facilitated--it was an actual sexual assault, and somehow nobody gives a fuck about that but me.
Kitty has a lot more to say, which you can read at Noisey. Danny Brown and Kitty Pryde's tour hits NYC on May 7 at Irving Plaza and hopefully there will be a barrier for that one. Tickets are still available.

Kendrick Lamar

Rapper Danny Brown is inspiring retweets and making headlines for an alleged incident that took place while he was on stage in Minneapolis on Friday (4/26), as City Pages reports...

Live performance is an incredibly intimate bond between artists and fans, but that intimacy got busted worse than Danny Brown's front tooth during Friday's show on Minneapolis's West Bank. At minimum, the Detroit rapper led several fans at the sold-out Triple Rock Social Club to believe, and many proclaiming on Twitter, that they saw a female concert-goer in the front row performing oral sex on him. At max, the 18-and-up crowd witnessed something putting Brown's evening put alongside Jim Morrison's "Miami Incident."
Whether it happened or not, at least one Reddit user claims to be traumatized, and Danny's name will probably be attached to the rumor for a while. Read the rest of the article, including tweets from fans (and from Kendrick Lamar), and tourmate Kitty Pryde's take on the matter, at City Pages.

Danny and Kitty's tour hits NYC on May 7 at Irving Plaza. At the very least, we can count on it being unpredictable. Tickets for that one are still available.

Updated tour dates are listed, along with a stream of Danny Brown's "#ExpressYourself," below...

Kitty

Sporting a DMX shirt, Kitty Pryde (who now just goes by Kitty) came to 285 Kent last night (2/7) for a show with She's Ryan, Nina Sky, and Lauren Flax. Kitty's set was fun (maybe because she kept encouraging the crowd to "have fun!") and during it a scarf or a hat was thrown on stage, then a sweatshirt, and finally, a bra.

Unfortunately, the show ran pretty late and we missed Nina Sky (if you stayed, did they play "Move Ya Body"??) and Lauren Flax. Check out more pictures of Kitty and She's Ryan, and a video of Kitty playing "Orion's Belt" below. Also below is a stream of Kitty's new EP, D.A.I.S.Y. rage.

Le1f at The Studio at Webster Hall in 2012 (more by Julie Schabel)
Le1f

It's been a little while since we've gotten a show from NYC rapper Le1f, who plays locally a lot, but that will change this Friday (2/8) at Santos Party House, where Le1f will play Frankie Sharp's Friday with DJ Carlos Jadraque, DJ Nita, DICAP, and Joeseph Trotto Junior. It's a late show (11 PM doors) and admission is $10 at the door.

Le1f recently released a new mixtape, Fly Zone, the followup to 2012's tape, Dark York, and like its predecessor, Fly Zone it's got murky beats and Le1f's impressive space age flow. The mixtape's got guest spots from Spank Rock, Haleek Maul, SAFE, Don Jones, Rahel and Kitty (who dropped the "Pryde" from her name, and who plays 285 Kent tonight [2/7]). You can download Fly Zone for free HERE and stream it in full below.

Le1f also appears as a guest on the new Sasha Go Hard mixtape, Round3: The Knockout, on the song "To The Girls." The mixtape also features production from Diplo on a track, and a verse from Kreayshawn on another one. Though Sasha and Le1f work well together, Le1f prefers the futurism of cloud rap, while Sasha's razor sharp flow is rooted in the gangsta rap of yesteryear. You can download that mixtape for free HERE and stream it in full below.

NRMAL

Festival Nrmal is happening again this year in Monterey, Mexico, expanding to a multiple day event from March 6 - 10 (just before SXSW if you're keeping track). The line-up for the fourth-annual event was just released and features Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti, Twin Shadow, Sky Ferreira, Mykki Blanco, Trash Talk, King Tuff, Parquet Courts, Kitty Pryde, Mortuary and many, many more. (English language bands were curated, as before, by Todd P.) The whole line-up is in the flyer below.

Advance tickets ($25) are available here. Flyer with the 2013 line-up is below.

Kitty Pryde at BV-CMJ 2012 (more by Chris La Putt)
Kitty Pryde

Kitty Pryde plans to release her followup to the haha im sorry EP this month with her new EP, D.A.I.S.Y. rage and she just revealed a teaser video for the EP which features the new song, "Dead Island." The video was directed/produced by Steamclam and you can watch it below. She's also been tweeting that her new mixtape will drop soon on Cocaine Blunts and she'll appear on the new Le1f mixtape, Fly Zone, which is due out on January 13.

Kitty Pryde has some upcoming appearances in NYC scheduled, including Lil B's panel discussion at 285 Kent on January 17, where she'll appear along with Travis Egedy aka Pictureplane, Alexandra Gamlin (Afro-Punk), and Russ Marshalek and Sophie Wiener (of Silent Drape Runners). Plus there will be Lil B-themed DJ sets by Pictureplane and Prince Rama.

A couple weeks after that, she'll return to 285 Kent for a live show on February 7 with Nina Sky (who you probably know best from their 2004 single, "Move Ya Body" and who released the free mixtape, Nicole & Natalie last year) and Chippy Nonstop. Tickets for that show are on sale now. She doesn't appear to have any other dates scheduled at the moment.

Kitty Pryde

If you noticed back in September that Kitty Pryde made a facebook status saying, "just finished my christmas song for sufjan stevens....................(:" and you were like, "WTF does that sound like?!" now you can find out! Sufjan's free Christmas rap mixtape, Chopped and Scrooged (yeah, we did just say "Sufjan's free Christmas rap mixtape"), is out now and can be downloaded above or streamed below. Other contributors to the album include the now-defunct Das Racist, Busdriver, Nicky Da B, Son Lux, John Dietrich (of Deerhoof), Fol Chen, and more.

Grimes at MHOW, 10/25/2012 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Grimes

There is no doubt Grimes has had an amazing, perhaps overwhelming, year, selling out four 600-capacity nights in NYC recently to her album Visions ending up on many Best Albums of 2012 lists (like Rough Trade Shops, NME and Fred Armisen's). But what did Claire Boucher pick as her favorite albums of the year? We asked her and you can check out what she told us below.

She cheated a bit though, listing her tour-mates and Arbutus Records label-mate Doldrums' Lesser Evil as her #1, which doesn't actually come out till February 23, 2013, but if it's a list of what she heard in 2012 then we'll let it slide. You can download a track from that Doldrums album above or stream it below along with its music video.

Check out Grimes Top 10 (plus one more, actually) of 2012, which includes both Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift and possibly some inside jokes (we're just printing what she gave us), and that Doldrums song, below.

APTBS @ Empty Bottle in Chicago, 11/14 2012 (more by Jimmy Farabi)
A Place to Bury Strangers

[A Place to Bury Strangers'] live show is all about sensory overload, and the smaller the room is, the harder it hits. They forwent traditional stage lights entirely, plunging the room into total darkness and illuminating themselves sparingly with splashed colors from projectors situated around the stage. Custom amplifier heads from frontman Oliver Ackermann's effects pedal company Death By Audio stood atop speaker cabinets that dwarfed everyone in the room, and every instrument on stage looked to have barely survived a war zone. Once the band plugged in and turned up, a sonic war zone was essentially what the audience was in for. -[Yardhawk]
A Place to Bury Strangers and Bleeding Rainbow swung through Bowery Ballroom on November 18, part of a larger tour for the pair that included a stop at Fun Fun Fun Fest (pics), the M for Montreal festival, and Chicago (pics). A review from their 11/19 show in Boston at Middle East is above. Did you see them on this tour? How was it?

If you missed the show (as we did), you have another chance to see them this week, and support a good cause while doing so. APTBS play a Hurricane Sandy relief benefit on Saturday (12/1) at 285 Kent with Liturgy, Total Slacker, Royal Baths and a DJ set from Weekend.  All proceeds go to the Robin Hood Foundation's Sandy Relief Program. Tickets ($12) are on sale.

While on the subject of Sandy relief benefits, you can still get tickets to see Hooray for Earth, Cymbals Eat Guitars, Zambri and Grooms at Pianos on Thursday (11/29). Directly after that show is another Sandy benefit, a late night (midnight - 4 AM) party with Kitty Pryde on DJ duty. This party is free, but donations are suggested and more info is here.

The Flat

Since opening in March, the Flat has been a haven for edgy music and affordable drinks. "It's amazing how many people we know live within blocks away," said Max Brennan, the owner. A decade ago, he founded Lit, a bar, gallery and performance space on Second Avenue in Manhattan. "It's sort of how Lit used to be before all the 'shirts' invaded the East Village," he said." - [NY Times]
The Flat, owned by Lit's Max Brennan and The Deathset's Johnny Sierra, opened this spring at 308 Hooper St, just off the Hewes St stop on the J/M line. While it's mainly a bar they do hold the occasional show, like Azar Swan's live debut which happens Saturday night (11/10) and is the official afterparty to the Tamaryn show at Knitting Factory earlier that night (Tamaryn's tour meanwhile hits Mercury Lounge tonight).

On Wednesday (11/14) The Flat is hosting a show presented by Self-Titled, Mishka and Greedhead Music, with HEEMS, LE1F, Big Baby Gandhi, and Meyhem Lauren. It's early (7 - 9 PM) and is FREE. Flyer is below.

The day before that (Tuesday, 11/13) they've got the release party for Fat Tony's "BKNY" music video with DJ sets from the man himself, plus Tom Cruz, Mr. Muthafuckin' eXquire, DJ Sicksentz, Kitty Pryde, Lakutis, Cities Aviv, and Dapwell from Das Racist. Also free, 9 PM start.

The Orwells, free tattoos & Kitty Pryde @ Public Assembly - 10/20/2012
BrooklynVegan Saturday Day Party
BrooklynVegan Saturday Day Party
Kitty Pryde

The second free 2012 BrooklynVegan not-CMJ party went down on Saturday (10/20) at Public Assembly after our Friday party, which happened at the same venue the day earlier. We already talked about how great Miguel was, and posted pics of Caveman, Ratking and Sinkane, but the day was packed with ten other of our great artists, all of who you can see pictures of in this post.

It was the Saturday morning of CMJ, so if you were there when doors opened at noon, you were probably stumbling in hungover from the night before (unless of course, you had copped yourself some of the Mercy hangover prevention drink at our Friday party). But young Chicago-suburb punks The Orwells did a fine job of waking everyone up, including those who were camped at the door to be first in line for the free tattoos we gave out for six hours straight. As the tatto guns started buzzing, the Orwells were blasting the early but nice-sized crowd with their raunchy garage punk led by frontman Mario Cuomo's unforgiving Iggy Pop-style stage presence. Meanwhile, New Zealand psych pop project Opossum were warming up the rest of the party attendees in the back room.

Energy levels stayed high in the front room as Hunters followed, and the back room were treated to dreamier sounds by LA's Tashaki Miyaki. Then came sets by the funky Sinkane, the great, orchestral Choir of Young Believers, a strong set by indie pop band Eternal Summers, and a more than charming one by Kitty Pryde. Kitty, who spent part of her set in the crowd, was the first of four rappers in the back room, with her set followed by Ratking, Cities Aviv, and Mr. Muthafuckin' eXquire (who went on after watching Miguel from the front row on the other stage) (Miguel returned the favor). And the front room was wrapped up by Hundred Waters, one of this year's buzzed about bands at CMJ, whose set we reviewed from the night earlier, and then Miguel and Caveman.

Attendees at the show were fueled by complimentary drinks courtesy of Sailor Jerry Rum, complimentary beer courtesy of PBR, and snacked on the free Raw Revolution organic live food bars that were scattered around the venue. Hopefully nobody had a hangover thanks to cans of the Mercy that were given out aplenty.

More pictures from the Saturday party are below.

Main Attrakionz at BV-SXSW 2012 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Main Attrakionz

Earlier this month, we mentioned that iPhone/Android app Mobli was throwing a CMJ party with Heems, Sasha Go Hard, Kitty Pryde, Weekend Money, SAFE, The Underachievers, and Party Supplies. That party was supposed to happen today at Delinquency but that venue has since been shut down so the whole lineup (minus The Underachievers and Party Supplies) is merging with the Young One Records showcase, which happens tonight (10/17) at 285 Kent. That showcase, in addition to including the names mentioned above, will have Main Attrakionz, Kool AD, Deniro Farrar, Supreme Cuts, Cities Aviv, Bryant Dope, Ryan Hemsworth, and CBG. SAFE and Ryan Hemsworth are DJing between sets, the rest of the acts are playing live. The show flier and set times are below.

That 285 Kent show is a pretty stacked bill for hip hop, and if you're into stacked hip hop shows like that one, you'll also probably want to check out the Mass Appeal party at Gramercy on Friday (10/19) with Asher Roth, Prodigy (of Mobb Deep), The Alchemist, Large Professor, Mr. Muthafuckin' exquire, Roc Marciano, Boldy James, Ninja Sonik, Bodega Bamz, Alexander Spit, Angel Haze and Timeless Youth. That one's free with RSVP to RSVP@massappeal.com but entry is based on capacity. The flier for this show is below.

As mentioned, Mr. Muthafuckin' eXquire also plays SOB's on Thursday (10/18) and an MTV Studio at Webster Hall the same day. That studio show is with Big K.R.I.T. and LE1F, and when we first mentioned it, a "special guest" was billed who has since been revealed as Killer Mike. Tickets for that one are still available.

That MTV show is an early show (5:30 doors) and after that there's a late show with Chuck Inglish (of The Cool Kids), Ninjasonik, ASAP TyY, Blvckalfred, Vault Boys, MopTop, Chase N Cashe, GDP, Vyle, and Curtains. Tickets for that one are still available.

Cities Aviv, in addition to the Young One show, has other CMJ shows, including the Flowerbooking CMJ showcase at Knitting Factory on Friday (10/19) with Unicorn Kid, Ki:Theory, Devin, Ghost Wave, and Talk Normal (tickets) and the Bond Music Group/PopGun show at Cameo Gallery on Friday (10/19) (late show) with Steven A. Clark, Lushlife, Dark Sister, and Pegasus Warning (tickets).

He also plays the free BrooklynVegan day party at Public Assembly on Saturday (10/20) with The Orwells, Eternal Summers, and the rest of the lineup coming soon!

While we're talking about good hip hop shows during CMJ, don't forget the Converse Rubber Tracks/Fool's Gold 5th anniversary show at Music Hall of WIlliamsburg on Saturday (10/20) with Ghostface Killah, A-Trak, Flosstradamus, Donnis, Nick Catchdubs, World's Fair, Troy Ave, and special guests.
