Empire Records

You may remember that last year for Record Store Day, Father/Daughter Records put out Faux Real, a compilation of punk and indie bands covering fictional TV and movie bands. RSD rejected the idea of putting out a sequel, but Father/Daughter are going ahead with it anyway and will release Faux Real II on April 28. It features Chumped, Krill, Allison Crutchfield, LVL UP and more taking on songs from Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, Billy Madison, Doug, Almost Famous and more. Listen to LVL UP's take on "Somebody Kll Me Please" from The Wedding Singer, with the full tracklist, below.

There's also a release show happening in NYC on April 28 at Palisades with Bellows, Small Wonder, Rivergazer and Sharpless. Tickets are on sale now.

In other music movie news, Empire Records turns 20 this year, and Rough Trade NYC in Williamsburg will be hosting a high-concept anniversary celebration on April 8. Presented by BBQ Films, they're even calling it Rex Manning Day and will have the whole place turned into the actual Empire Records store from the movie. Here's the event description:

Twenty years - to the day! - since the original Rex Manning Day, BBQ Films invites you to "Say No More, Mon Amour," damn the man, and save The Empire. For one night only, Williamsburg's Rough Trade is transformed into the legendary Empire Records, with all the staff and characters you've come to love (and hate).

On April 8, 2015, join Lucas and his couch cushion, boss Joe (but don't touch his drums!), Gina and her "Sugar High," and, of course, Corey and her crush, Rex Manning... Immerse yourself in the world of Empire Records with a screening of the film, live music, a Rex Manning autograph, and, if you're brave enough, a chance to shave your head for Debra's funeral. Music-veto power available, pending Mark's approval.

Tickets include:
• 1 free drink and free BBQ Films gourmet popcorn
• A Rex Manning autograph
• 1 custom button at the DIY Button Station
• A fabulous Rex Manning Photobooth
• Screening of Empire Records (1995)
• A live set from the Empire house band, and potential additional sets TBA
• A head shaving station (first five folks who shave their heads drink free)
• A limited-edition event poster by Todd Ian Goldstein
• ...and all the theatrical immersion BBQ Films guests have come to expect...

Limited edition! For brave souls, special secret experiences will be auctioned off the night of. Think: A Warren shopping spree. A Gina Sugar High. An Oh Rexy You're So Sexy one-on-one with Rex himself... Come with a few extra bucks if you're game!

Tickets are on Internet presale now (anyone know the password?) and the general on-sale begins Friday, 2/20, at noon. A portion of proceeds will go to a TBA charity.

Empire Records is filled with memorable music moments, like when Eddie eats a special brownie and watches a GWAR video (only to hallucinate that GWAR attacks him on stage), when Joe gets behind the kit for AC/DC's "If You Want Blood (You Got It)," when most of the cast dances on the rooftop to The The's "This Is The Day," and of course when Gina joins Berko (played by actual rock musician Coyote Shivers) to sing "Sugarhigh." (By the way, if Faux Real III happens, someone should really do "Sugarhigh.") And for the real nerds, the post-credits scene when Eddie and Mark argue over whether Primus or the Pixies have better bass lines.

Revisit some of those moments below...

Speedy

Speedy Ortiz announced that their new album, Foil Deer, would be out April 21 via Carpark, and they've now released its first single, "Raising the Skate." This album was was recorded by Nicolas Vernhes (Dirty Projectors, Animal Collective), and they're saying it has more overdubs, keyboards and studio work than their debut. If that makes it sound like this is going to be their "pop" album though, "Raising the Skate" suggests otherwise. It's still got all the discordant riffing that made Major Arcana so memorable, but it also covers new ground like the big vocal harmonies in those choruses. (And it references the Ban Bossy campaign.) Check it out (via Fader), with the album artwork and tracklist, below.

Speedy also announced a tour which includes a run with Krill and Mitski, hitting NYC on April 25 at Bowery Ballroom. Tickets for that show go on sale at noon on Friday (2/13). The tour also includes support on other dates from Two Inch Astronaut, Alex G, Palehound, and others. All dates are listed below.

You can catch Mitski at that same venue sooner when her tour supporting Hundred Waters stops there on March 5 (tickets).

Krill just played there with Porches, Frankie Cosmos and Sheer Mag over the weekend, and they'll also be in NYC when their tour hits Silent Barn on March 14 with LVL UP and Cloud Becomes Your Hand. Their new album, A Distant Fist Unclenching, is now streaming in its entirety too. Listen below, via NME.

Radiator King
Radiator King

Boston singer/songwriter Adam Silvestri, aka Radiator King (not to be confused with Radiator Hospital), makes the kind of folk with punk grit that Chuck Ragan does in his solo career or The Gaslight Anthem does on their more recent material. He's putting out his second album, Document Untold, on February 24, and we've got the premiere of its new single, "Hardwired." Listen below.

Radiator King will be in NYC tonight (2/5) at Sidewalk Cafe for a full-band show, and later this month he'll join his fellow Bostonians Pile on their tour, which hits NYC on February 25 at Palisades with Canada rock duo Solids and Pile's EIS labelmates Leapling. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

After their run with Radiator King, Pile basically plan to stay on the road for the foreseeable future. We previously mentioned a TBA Brooklyn show for April 28, which we now know happens at Baby's All Right with Yazan, Vulture Shit and Captain Wizard. Tickets for that one are on sale. Pile also play a Fordham show with Elvis Depressedly on Friday (2/6). All of their dates are listed below.

Pile album artwork
Pile

Pile's new album, You're Better Than This, comes out March 3 via Exploding In Sound, and so far the band have put out two songs from that. "Mr. Fish" starts off as a slower, more slack indie rocker before turning into something bigger, while "#2 Hit Single" is the Pile you know and love in full-on attack mode. Check out both below.

As for the other two bands on that Pile/Radiator King show at Palisades, Solids (who also play Cake Shop the following night) made a new video for "Off White" and Leapling are streaming their new album, Vacant Page in full (due 2/10 via EIS). Check those out below too.

In other Exploding In Sound news, Krill recently put out the seven-minute clanger "Tiger" off their upcoming album, A Distant Fist Unclenching, due 2/17 via DDW/EIS (listen below). They've also expanded their tour, and now have two upcoming NYC shows. In addition to Friday's sold-out Bowery Ballroom show with Porches, Frankie Cosmos and Sheer Mag, Krill play an LP release show on March 14 at Silent Barn with local indie rockers LVL UP and avant-popsters Cloud Becomes Your Hand. All of their dates are listed below.

There's never a lack of local LVL UP shows. You can also catch them February 20 at Aviv with Quarterbacks, Crying and Long Beard; and February 28 at Shea Stadium with Liam Betson, Slight and Doubting Thomas Cruise Control.

Nor is there ever a lack of chances to catch Cloud Becomes Your Hand (maybe you caught them last weekend). To bring things just about full circle, they play Leapling's record release show on February 13 at Shea Stadium with Palm, Cantina and Felicia Douglass. Jerry Paper is DJing.

Lists of dates, videos and song streams, below...

Pile

Boston post-hardcore band Pile are releasing You're Better Than This, the followup to 2012's very good Dripping, on March 3 via Exploding In Sound. No music's been released from that yet, but in the meantime you can revisit their 2014 single, "Special Snowflakes," below. That's the clown artwork that the LP artwork is based on, above.

The band recently successfully funded their new van (though there's still 11 days left to donate if you wanna give them extra help and get some of the cool rewards), which means they're ready to hit the road for their tour which begins this weekend. The first date is in NYC on Saturday (1/10) at Shea Stadium with Krill (who also have a new LP coming on EIS), Baked and Swings ($8 at the door). Pile return to NYC on February 25 at Palisades with Canadian rockers Solids, EIS labelmates Leapling and Radiator King (ticket info TBA). After that, they play SXSW and have a lot of TBA dates, including a TBA Brooklyn show on 4/28. All dates are listed below.

For Solids, that Palisades show is part of a tour which includes another NYC show on February 26 at Cake Shop with Cutters and more TBA. All of their dates are listed below.

Leapling also play NYC sooner, opening for Landlady at Union Pool on January 21 with Heaven For Real (tickets). Their new record, Vacant Page, comes out via EIS/Inflated on February 10. You can stream "Crooked" from that LP, with that Pile track, the recent single from Krill's upcoming LP, and lists of dates, below...

Soulside, Sweet Jesus @ Saint Vitus
Before there was Girls Against Boys, members of that band were in Dischord/DC post-hardcore band Soulside, who broke up back in 1989 but have influenced a ton of bands since. Now they're back and tonight's their second of two NYC shows at Saint Vitus (both sold out). Opening is Sweet Jesus, who feature members of Have Heart, Verse, Dropdead and Soul Control, and are a pretty good fit.

Opeth, In Flames, Red Fang @ Terminal 5
Metal vets Opeth continued their trek into straight up progressive rock on this year's Pale Communion. Tonight they play the big Terminal 5 with Swedish DMers In Flames and Portland riffers Red Fang.

Walter Martin, Kat Edmonson @ Joe's Pub

Ice Choir, Maxo, DV-i @ Cameo Gallery
With his current project Ice Choir, Kurt Feldman (TPOBPAH, Depreciation Guild) uncannily recreates '80s new romantic synthpop. Tonight's a release show celebrating their new "Pure Holiday" single.

Maxo, Life Size Maps, Limited, Visuals @ Baby's All Right
Fans of Ice Choir might be a little torn tonight, as Limited (aka Alex Craig of Big Troubles and Ducktails) is working in the same millieu, and tonight's show also features Maxo who is also playing tonight's show at Cameo.

Delicate Steve, Celestial Shore, Jason Bartell (of Fang Island) @ Glasslands
Glasslands has less than two weeks left, and tonight you can check out an excellent lineup of indie rock bands that all exude instrumental technique. Go while you can.

The Black Madonna, Jacques Renault @ Glasslands

Mitski, Bellows, Small Wonder, 100 Watt Horse @ Knitting Factory Brooklyn
Mitski's latest album, Bury Me At Makeout Creek, has made her one of the local Brooklyn scene's more exciting new artists, and it's gotten a bit of year-end acclaim. Tonight she plays with two bands in the talented Epoch collective, Bellows and Small Wonder, as well as 100 Watt Horse.

Nels Cline Ring Nebula Project, Ava Mendoza's Unnatural Ways, Cactus Truck, Cloud Becomes Your Hand @ Trans-Pecos
Two impressive avant-guitarists, Nels Cline and Ava Mendoza, lead bands for tonight's show. Also on the bill is Cactus Truck (from the Netherlands) and one of NYC's better experimental pop bands, Cloud Becomes Your Hand.

Longrunning Brooklyn duo Talibam! headline this night of experimental/drone/noise that also features Yeah Yeah Yeahs drummer Brian Chase. Free, though donations are suggested.

Krill, Palberta, Big Neck Police, Show Me The Body, Big Neck Police @ Shea Stadium
Krill's third album, A Distant Fist Unclenching, is coming out on February 17 via Exploding In Sound / Double Double Whammy, and its new single "Torturer" is another good example of their Spencer Krug meets Western Mass-style rock. You can stream it below.

Pilot to Gunner, Bound and Buried, The Judas Knife, Our Skies Are Noise @ The Acheron
Early 2000s-era post-hardcore band Pilot to Gunner were inactive for a while, but lately they've been anything but. Here's another chance to catch them in their hometown.

John Hodgman @ Grand Masonic Lodge
John Hodgman hosts his monthly Secret Society Meeting, this time given a subtitle, "Public Holiday Spectacle." Note though previous Secret Society meetings have been at Union Hall, this is at the Grand Masonic Lodge in the Flatiron District.

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.

What else?

Chicago's Verma intertwine elements of gothy post-punk, krautrock, Eno-esque ambience and Detroit-style burners into a heavy, groovy psych sound. The band's new album, Sunrunner, will be out on May 27 via Trouble in Mind and we've got the premiere of the first song to be released from it, "Hologrammer." Building off a throbbing bass riff, the song layers on guitars, organ, synths, and singer Whitney Johnson's wailing vocals as it builds and builds. Fans of Loop (who just played here last week) might hear some parallels. You can stream it below.

Verma have some live shows lined up for the spring, including two in Brooklyn: they play the Deleted Scenes show on May 21 at Baby's All Right with Massachusetts band Krill, and then May 22 at Death by Audio with Philly's Ecstatic Vision and Brooklyn psych band The Golden Grass. Advance tickets for the Baby's All Right show are on sale now.

All dates are listed, along with the "Hologrammer" stream and LP artwork and tracklist, below...

Tycho in Chicago in 2012 (more by Zach Pollack)
Tycho

Fear of Men at the Seaport in 2013 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Fear of Men

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

Tycho, Gardens and Villa @ Webster Hall
Tycho's downbeat electronica is performed as a three-piece band live, giving it a vibe of post-rock you can sway to. Tonight's show is sold out.

Fear of Men, Beverly, Beach Day, Alvvays @ Brooklyn Night Bazaar
This weekend's BKNB entertainment is brought to you by Kanine Records and is a great bill of indiepop, including UK band Fear of Men, Beverly (Drew Citron who's also currently in TPOBPAH), Canada's lovely Alvvays and Floriday trio Beach Day.

Celestial Shore, Krill, Netherfriends, Zula, Native America @ Silent Barn
There's a lot of good music on this bill, including mathy indie pop band Celestial Shore, psychdelic pop band Zula, eccentric indie rockers Krill and more.

The Coathangers, Audacity @ Mercury Lounge
This is the second NYC show of The Coathangers' tour with Audacity which has been bringing great double doses of garage punk all around North America.

Household, Good Throb, Priests, Arm Candy @ Death by Audio
This is the second DbA show for DC post-punks Priests and UK punks Good Throb, who played the same venue earlier this month. THe rest of the bill is good too, with strong local bands Household and Arm Candy.

We Are Scientists, PAWS @ Bowery Ballroom
The buzz around We Are Scientists may have ended years ago, but we're definitely currently excited about Scottish trio PAWS, whose punky pop isn't too far removed from Japandroids.

Inmates, Anasazi, Omegas, PROXY!, Warthog, Mercenary @ LPR (NY's Alright)
The second annual NYC punk/hardcore festival New York's Alright kicks off tonight at LPR early and...

Zyanose, La Misma, Aspects Of War, Life Chain @ Acheron (NY's Alright)
...ends with a late show at Acheron. If you're into intense, very rowdy punk shows, these are for you.

Puce Mary, Venerence, Ligature, Saran Man @ Baby's All Right
Baby's also hosts a NY's Alright afterparty, but less on the punk side. Headliner Puce Mary is Denmark drone/industrial artist Frederikke Hoffmeier, who records for the Posh Isolation label (previously home to Iceage).

Prince Rama, Weaves, WIN WIN @ Baby's All Right
It's a evening of tribal mysticism shot through an '80s filter, with the ladies of Prince Rama. Also on the bill: Toronto multihyphenate pop group Weaves.

I Break Horses, Rival Consoles @ Rough Trade
Sweden's Maria Linden makes dancey shoegaze (or is it the other way around) as I Break Horses. This is the band's second NYC show.

Horse Feathers, Laura and Greg @ Glasslands
Justin Ringle's indie folk collective Horse Feathers are celebrating a decade together as a band this year. This is their first of two NYC shows.

Foster Care, New Coke, Sandratz @ Cake Shop
Brooklyn bruisers Foster Care this night of fuzzy punk-n-pop that also features Florida's snazzy New Coke.

Liam Finn, Weyes Blood, Evil J, Saint Cecilia @ Union Pool
If the prospect of Liam playing his new album The Nihilist in full tonight isn't enough, look out for special guest appearances from soon-to-be-tourmates Connan Mockasin and Kirkin J. Callinan. Guaranteed hijinx!

Laurent Garnier, MKL @ Output
French techno/house producer Laurent Garnier has been at it for over two decades, having recently put out releases on Ed Banger (Justice, Mr. Oizo, etc). Catch the veteran producer moving dancefloors like the '90s at Output tonight.

Grass Is Green, The Gradients, Heeney, Tom Blacklung and the Smokestacks, Somewhere @ Emet
Grass Is Green's fidgety post-hardcore pulls most from the '90s Dischord style of the genre, and they do it well. Good bill overall too.

Chuck Ragan, The White Buffalo, Johnny Two Bags @ Irving Plaza
Though Hot Water Music is fully back in action, singer Chuck Ragan still has his solo project to folk on too, where he ditches HWM's punk for rootsy folk. Tonight he and his band The Camaraderie (featuring members of Lucero and Social Distortion) will bring their rollicking folk to Irving Plaza.

Ikebe Shakedown, High and Mighty Brass Band! @ Mercury Lounge
Shake it to Brooklyn afro-funk collective Ikebe Shakedown, who celebrate their new album Stone by Stone at tonight's record release show.

Brooklyn Folk Festival @ The Bell House
The three-day celebration of all things acoustic, rustic and down-to-earth kicks off tonight.

'Trophy Tape' screening @ Anthology Film Archives
Experimental musician Jason Lescalleet is screening his new Trophy Tape project which collects films by Aaron Dilloway, Ellen Frances, Annie Feldmeier Adams, Justin Meyers, Antony Milton, C. Spencer Yeh, Olivia Block, Adel Souto, Neil Young Cloaca, Todd Deal, Jubal Brown, Heidi Alasuvanto, and Robert Beatty interpreting music from his 2012 album, Songs About Nothing. Trailer below.

Solids, PUP, Pachangacha @ Mercury Lounge
These three rowdy rock bands just hit Glasslands last night, and tonight they return to rage with you at Mercury Lounge. The Japandroids-y Solids and SideOneDummy-signed punks PUP are in town on their way back to Canada from SXSW, and Pachangacha bring over their Dino Jr-isms from CT.

Classixx, GEMS @ MHOW
LA dance duo Classixx return to NYC to get the dancefloors moving here once again, and this time they're bringing Washington ethereal dancepop duo GEMS with them.

Ava Luna, Ryan Power, Guerilla Toss, Jerry Paper, Krill, Ashcan Orchestra, Railings @ Silent Barn
This bill is loaded with Northeast representation: it's the last hometown show for NYC funk punks Ava Luna before they head to Europe, plus Vermont pop weirdo Ryan Power, Massachusetts art punks Guerilla Toss, their indie rock Mass. neighbors Krill and more.

Vertical Scratchers, Boogarins, Adult Dude @ Glasslands
John Schmersal has previously led the great Brainiac and Enon, and now he's fronting a new project, Vertical Scratchers. They make their NYC debut tonight, and the whole bill is solid with Brazilian psych rockers Boogarins (one of the more talked about bands at SXSW this year) and NYC punks Adult Dude.

Liam Finn w/ Connan Mockasin, Love As Laughter @ Union Pool
Liam Finn wraps up his March "murmuration" residency at Union Pool with fellow New Zealander Connan Mockasin who definitely will bring a wildcard element to the evening.

Talib Kweli, Res, Sonnymoon, Soul Inscribed, Gentei Kaijo, Javi Santiago, EE Delray, Malik Work, Alex Pasternak of Lemonade, Aka Suga @ LPR
Via LPR's site, "Started in 2012, The Lesson is a live band, improvised 'experimental hip-hop groove session' that takes place every Thursday night on the Lower East Side, and welcomes a variety of musicians, singers, and emcees to its stage."

Bluffing, Huge Pupils, Heaven's Gate, Slonk Donkerson, M.O.T.O. @ Shea Stadium
Tonight's a record release show for Bluffing's new EP, Sugar Coated Pills of Wisdom. We like Heaven's Gate and Slonk Donkerson too.

DTCV, Spaceships, Max Low, Marzipan @ The Grand Victory
Jim Greer spent time in Guided by Voices and, for many years, was one of SPIN's best writers. His band DTCV (pronounced "detective") make post-VU indie rock.

Martha Wainwright, JD Samson (of Le Tigre), Edie Falco, Dawn O'Porter, Yael Stone, Amelia Lester @ The Bell House
"Australian literary salon" Women of Letters, which "involves five or six female writers, performers, actors, politicians, and artists joining together to revive the lost art of letter writing," returns to the US tonight with various guests including singer/songwriter Martha Wainwright, The Sopranos' Edie Falco, MEN/Le Tigre's JD Samson, Orange is the New Black's Yael Stone, and more.

Tonight's Allman Brothers Band show (and the rest of their run) at Beacon Theatre has been postponed.

Speedy Ortiz
Krill
Odonis Odonis

The free music at Brooklyn Night Bazaar continued this past Friday (2/7), as Northampton indie rockers Speedy Ortiz returned to Brooklyn as part of their ongoing tour to headline the show. They were joined by a great lineup of fellow Massachusetts indie rockers Krill and Toronto noisemakers Odonis Odonis, plus two local bands: Heeney and Infinity Girl. Pictures of all five bands are in this post.

Brooklyn Night Bazaar's free music (and not-free food, drinks, shopping and games) continues this weekend with Team Spirit on Valentine's Day (2/14) and Jon Spencer Blues Explosion on Saturday (2/15).

Speedy Ortiz are back in NYC tonight (2/10) for a free in-store at Other Music at 8 PM, in celebration of their new Real Hair EP, which comes out this week via Carpark (stream it at Pitchfork). Admission is free, first come, first serve.

As discussed, Krill will head out on a tour with Ava Luna soon, which includes a NYC show happening on 3/24 at Silent Barn with Guerilla Toss, Ryan Power, Jerry Paper, Ashcan and Railings.

Toronto dark-hued noisemakers Odonis Odonis will release their second album, Hard Boiled Soft Boiled, on April 15 via Buzz Records. It's the follow-up to 2011's Hollandaze -- do these guys like brunch or what? The title also alludes to the nature of the album; side 1 is punishing goth/industrial/punk, while side 2 is more ethereal. You can stream the definitely hard-boiled "New Obsession" and watch its twisted music video below.

As mentioned, Odonis Odonis will be in NYC on Friday (2/7) playing Brooklyn Night Bazaar with Speedy Ortiz, Krill, Heeny and Infinity Girl. Like all BKNB shows, this one is free. And if you're going to be in Austin for SXSW, look for them there too. All dates are listed below.
