Doors are already open for tonight's Brooklyn Night Bazaar (1/17) the music portion of which features a line-up curated by the folks at Le Poisson Rouge with MNDR, The Dolls and more. Add one more name to that as they just announced that Grammy-winning rapper Eve will be playing too. Whether it's a full set or just a few songs, we're not sure but she's on at 10 PM. Brooklyn Night Bazaar is free and open to the public (though there's usually a line to get in).

In related news, The Hollywood Reporter, uh, reports that Eve, who has acted in such films as the two Barbershop films and Vin Diesel's xXx, is developing a sitcom for ABC that could be slated for the 2014-2015 season.

Swearin

The Brooklyn Night Bazaar is up and running in its new permanent Greenpoint location, offering shopping, food, fun, and free music every Friday and Saturday. There's a few previously discussed upcoming shows, including SISU on Friday (12/20), two Psychic TV shows later in the month, and the Panache weekend (1/10 & 1/11) that includes Mac DeMarco, Imperial Teen, Dot Wiggin Band and more. And since we last spoke, more shows have been announced.

The So So Glos play this Saturday (12/21) with a stacked lineup of California X, Palehound, and Darlings. It's the night after So So Glos open for Brand New at The Paramount.

Swearin' co-headline with Cymbals Eat Guitars with strong local support from Low Fat Getting High on January 3, a one-off before their 2014 tour which includes NYC shows at Cake Shop (3/6) and Rough Trade (3/7) (tix).

Synth popsters MNDR will be there on January 17 with The Mast and Yeasayer associate Sinkane is there the next day (1/18).

Macaulay Culkin's pizza-themed Velvet Undergound tribute band The Pizza Underground is there on January 24 opening for French Horn Rebellion (maybe they'll have more than eight minutes of material by then), along with Seasick Mama and Heavenly Beat. And the day after that, the highly entertaining Har Mar Superstar (1/25), who just played Bowery Ballroom (12/17) will headline.

Brooklyn's dark, reverby Crystal Stilts will take over on February 8.

And atmospheric post-rockers Caspian, who recently headlined Bowery Ballroom, will make things a little more epic at Brooklyn Night Bazaar on March 1.

Other additions were announced too, and you can check out the full current schedule (along with full lineups for each date, if available), below...

TOKiMONSTA on SS Coachella 2012 (more by Greg Cristman)
TOKiMONSTA

TOKiMONSTA began picking up more speed as an artist on Flying Lotus' Brainfeeder label, and she's now signed with big-time EDM label Ultra (Deadmau5, Kaskade, Bloody Beetroots), who will release her new album, Half Shadows, on April 2. From the sound of the album's two singles, "Go With It" (featuring MNDR) and "The Force" (featuring Kool Keith), she's not changing her sound to fit in with her labelmates (luckily). Instead, she shows us what the LA beat scene sounds like mixed with dream pop on the MNDR collab, and on the one with Kool Keith, she creates an updated vision of the futurism that Keith was doing with Dan the Automator in his Dr. Octagon days. You can stream both songs below.

TOKiMONSTA is playing a few live dates too, including a record release show for Half Shadows with "very special guests" in NYC on April 9 at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Tickets for that show go on sale today (3/21) at noon. All dates are listed below.

TOKiMONSTA also just offered a remix of Justin Timberlake's "Suit & Tie" off his new album, The 20/20 Experience, which is out now. This remix follows the one Four Tet did earlier this month, though unlike Four Tet's, TOKiMONSTA's was not officially approved by JT's label. You can stream both of those remixes below.

Justin also recently released the video for "Mirrors," which you can watch below too. And in more related news, The Hollywood Reporter reports that he confirmed that a sequel to The 20/20 Experience (the "second half" of the album) is on its way. His tour with Jay-Z hits NYC on July 19 and 20 at Yankee Stadium and tickets for both nights are still available.

All TOKiMONSTA tour dates are listed, along with all streams and videos, below...

Oklahoma's Colourmusic are currently on tour supporting Shiny Toy Guns, both of whom were supposed to play Santos Party House on Tuesday (10/30) which didn't happen as that part of Manhattan had no power.

It's an early show -- doors at 5:30 PM and it'll all be over by 11 PM -- and Tickets are still available.

Colourmusic were one of gave one of the most memorable shows I saw at SXSW 2011, when I wrote, "Stillwater's Colourmusic lay down some awesome Can-style prog, made extra heavy with two bassists. Flaming Lips, early-'90s psych influence casts a shadow on them too." Even if you don't care about the headliner, they're worth checking out (though tickets are $20). You can stream last year's underrated My ____ Is Pink below via Spotify, along with a couple viscera-soaked music videos.

Chromeo @ DCTV Firehouse, 10/18/2012
Chromeo

It was a night for dancing not posing, but Chromeo's David "Dave 1" Macklovitch couldn't resist during the duo's DJ set at SPIN's CMJ party (brought to you by Red Diamond Wine, CABO Wabo®, Tito's Handmade Vodka, and JBL) on Wednesday night at the DCTV Firehouse in New York's Chinatown. So, just before theatrically dropping a beat and transitioning out of Moodymann's "Freeki Mutha F cker (All I Need Is U)," Dave 1, wearing his customary suit jacket, tight jeans, and hi-top poof of black curls, turned to the sidestage area and flashed his best glossy, flossy smile for a photographer, who was so tickled upon getting the shot that he ditched his camera soon thereafter to dance to a remix of the remix of Chief Keef's "I Don't Like." [SPIN]
SPIN threw a CMJ party at DCTV Firehouse in Chinatown on Thursday (10/18) with DJ sets by Chromeo (who DJed a few other shows last week), Araabmuzik and MNDR. More pictures from the party are below.

Azealia Banks

Tonight (9/5), Azealia Banks and Hunters are performing at an "invite-only", "entrance subject to capacity" party at the very-hot Wythe Hotel in Williamsburg which is being thrown by SPIN and fashion website Refinery29. The Virgin Mobile-sponsored show serves dual purposes, as Azealia is on the cover of the new print issue of SPIN and it's also a kickoff to Fashion Week here in NYC which, if you live here, you have probably already been hit over the head by media coverage (to which we're adding more). SPIN is going gaga for Fashion Week this year with a dedicated site that will offer video coverage with MNDR as one of their corespondents. The flyer for tonight's show is below.

Azealia will also be performing at a show you have a better shot of getting into, as part of Fashion's Night Out which happens Thursday (9/6) all over the city. (This, as you all know, is the only night of the year Fashion is allowed out in public in NYC.) Azealia and DJ Cosmo will perform at M.A.C. Soho (506 Broadway) at 7:45 PM though you'd do well to show up earlier than that if you want to get in.

There are dozens of FNO shows Thursday night and we'll have more on those very soon. Meanwhile, you can watch (or rewatch) Azealia's new video, "1991," below along with the flyer for tonight's soiree...

MNDR

Here's one for those of you summering in the Hamptons. MNDR will be stopping by the Montauk Beach House this afternoon (8/11), performing a few songs with pal Mark Ronson who is DJing the club's "Poolside Frolic" party. The party is from noon to 7PM and there's more information here.

It's good timing on her part as MNDR's debut album, Feed Me Diamonds, is out Tuesday (8/14). You can stream her new single, "Faster Horses," below. Immediately following the album's release, MNDR will be opening for Duran Duran on a handful of August dates and those are listed at the bottom of this post. She likes these seaside shows... she just played a very big boat.

Speaking of Montauk, Frankie Rose -- who just opened for Little Dragon last night (8/10) in Prospect Park -- is playing the Surf Lodge tonight. (The venue's had cool concerts all summer.) They don't list a set time but shows don't get underway till sunset there. On Twitter today, Frankie said "Doing an all sisters of mercy cover set at montuk surf lodge tonight." She was joking, though I bet she could do a great version of "This Corrosion."

MNDR stream and a list of tour dates are below.

MNDR at Internet Week 2012 (more by Ryan Muir)
MNDR

So the free MNDR / Javelin / Delicate Steve show that was supposed to happen yesterday on the U.S.S. Intrepid but got postponed due to thunderstorms is now happening TONIGHT (7/20). (Red Baraat are no longer playing.) Doors are at 7:30PM, show starts at 8:30PM. If you RSVP'd for yesterday, you're still on the list and if you didn't, you can RSVP here.

Delicate Steve at 4Knots Fest, 2012 (more by Chris La Putt)
Delicate Steve

MNDR, Javelin, Delicate Steve and Red Baraat are playing a free show tonight (7/18) on the U.S.S. Intrepid, the aircraft-carrier-turned-museum parked at 46th St at 12th Ave. The show kicks off "Samsung Spacesfest," a weekend-long welcoming of Space Shuttle Enterprise to the museum, with 40 interactive displays, activities and exhibitions from tonight through Sunday, July 22. A full list of the weekend's events is here.

Doors for tonight's event are at 6PM with the concert beginning at 7PM. While the show is free you do need to RSVP to attend. Let's hope Delicate Steve's set is less eventful than his one at 4Knots Fest on Saturday.

Meanwhile, MNDR's new album, Feed Me Diamonds, touches down on August 14 but she just released a new single from the album, "Faster Horses," which you can stream below where you can also check out a flyer for tonight's show.

Wild Belle @ Internet Week
Wild Belle

I thought it was a little weird that Chicago band Wild Belle was playing a random NYC show, aka the Internet Week party that happened at "IWNY HQ" on Mercer St. Monday night with MNDR, but then I just read this:

EMI Music Publishing has signed a global songwriting deal with hotly tipped American duo Wild Belle.

The agreement, which is effective immediately, was sealed by EMI Music Publishing UK's Guy Moot, president UK and European A&R, and Dan Lloyd-Jones, VP A&R, with EMI Music Publishing North America's Jon Platt, president of North American Creative.

Originally from Chicago and now hailing from Brooklyn, New York, the sibling duo of Natalie Bergman and Elliot Bergman started gathering a fan base after posting their first track to their Bandcamp page, 'Keep You', earlier this year.

Roger Faxon, EMI Group CEO, said: "EMI is the perfect home for Wild Belle and I'm thrilled that Natalie and Elliot have chosen to join us.

Here are some pictures from their new hometown show. More below...

Internt Week 2012

Just like in 2010 and 2011, Internet Week NY HQ will be home to stages, a classroom, lounges curated by Design Within Reach, installations from Ivan Toth Depeña in collaboration with Jared Schiffman's "Spatial Media" class at NYU's ITP, and more. With 20,000 more square feet of Digital Playground as well as Conference Theater--Internet Week HQ at 82 Mercer is poised to be the best yet.

Open from May 14-17, attendees can expect to be a part of the ever-changing digital landscape in New York--hearing from industry luminaries and innovators across two stages and a classroom on the second floor of 82 Mercer. On the ground floor, Internet Week NY will host large-scale ticketed conferences with partners like App Nation.

Internet Week NY 2012 starts today (5/14) and, much like in the years prior, will feature live music performances in addition to the web-focused events.

A full schedule of all Internet Week goings on is available at their site but the musical portion of the conference kicks off tonight with an invite-only party at IWNY HQ (82 Mercer, 8-11pm) featuring Wild Belle and MNDR before moving to an after-party at Tribeca Grand later on for a performance from Rye Rye with DJ sets from Blaqstarr, Blu Jemz, Night People, and Kaviar Disco Club. Saturday (5/19) will feature a performances from Vacationer, Magic Wands and Body Language (who will also DJ) at Santos Party House.

Passes for the week are still available in varying levels but we're also giving away TWO Insider Passes, which gets you into all of the above and much more. Details on how to win these passes are below.

That kickoff party tonight will be the first NYC performance of Chicago's Wild Belle, who we profiled earlier this year on BV Chicago. The band also recently did their first BBC session last week, which will air in June. Stream their Keep You 12" below.

Internet Week 2012 closes with the Webby Awards which will be streamable in full. Patton Oswalt will host the evening.

Devin @ Public Assembly in 2010 (more by Leia Jospe)
Devin

The Brooklyn-based Devin, who recently opened for Suckers (also on Frenchkiss Records) at Knitting Factory, and, as mentioned, JEFF The Brotherhood at Maxwells, will be playing a free Valentine's Day show Tuesday at Pianos before heading out on tour with the Heartless Bastards.

Flying Lotus

Fun Fun Fun Fest 2011 came to a close on Sunday night. It was another successful year for the well-rounded music fest, and the end of its first in the larger (and much dustier) Auditorium Shores. And though Ryan Gosling may have been the most talked about artist at the festival (Danzig was a close second), the real star was festival organizer Transmission Enertainment for putting together such a kickass lineup on four stages for three days straight (not to mention a mechanical bull) (and skate and bike ramp and tons of good food and vendors and merch and posters and wrestling) (and Turquoise Jeep).

After Hum and then a quick set of comedy by metal comedian Brian Posehn (he did his Slayer joke and one that involved Pantera), Slayer closed out the large Orange stage on Sunday (the other metal acts played on the slightly smaller Black Stage all weekend, but the Orange was the biggest and actually specially built to Slayer's specs).

Slayer wasn't the only wild headliner of the day though. In fact, that's an understatement. Trash Talk played after Henry Rollins did his set of spoken word in the Yellow Tent because Trash Talk had to miss their originally scheduled set on the Black Stage earlier in the week due to a family emergency. Thanking everyone for missing Slayer to see them (actually not true because it ended up Trash Talk was done before Slayer even started), Trash Talk started their hardcore insanity by pointing out that they were on the only stage with no barricade (the stage comedians usually played). Circle pits, stagediving, stage crowding, grabbing the mic, pumping fists (and skateboards) and just general craziness characterized the next 20 minutes or so.

The always controversial Odd Future drew their own giant and enthusiastic crowd to their headlining set on the Blue Stage, and Blonde Redhead closed out the Black Stage to a more intimate and chilled out audience (in the location that was metal, punk, garage and hardcore the rest of the weekend).

Here is our second set of pictures from the final day of the fest, including Asobi Seksu, the reunited Hum, We Were Promised Jetpacks (who just played NYC and one of our CMJ day parties), Odd Future, G-Side, Austra, Grimes, MNDR, Mates of State, Budos Band, Ted Leo & The Pharmacists, Architecture in Helsinki, Del the Funky Homosapien, Brian Posehn, Flying Lotus, Brody Stevens, Trash Talk, Henry Rollins, and more SLAYERRRR.

We previously posted pictures from both day 1 and day 2, and a second set by BBG day 1, day 2, and day 3
