Warpaint in Austin in April (more by Tim Griffin)
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Warpaint, Yellowbirds @ Prospect Park Bandshell (FREE)
Warpaint's second album is a slow burn, more about vibe than obvious singles, but the record has many sultry charms. There are even more charms -- and serious chops -- with their live show. A free evening with Warpaint in the park sounds like a nice Thursday.
White Lung, Pop. 1280 @ Mercury Lounge
White Lung's new record is more of the punishing aggression, inventive guitar playing, and powerhouse hooks and screams of 2012's Sorry, and yet another winner from one of the best punk bands around. Those songs will come to life tonight at Mercury Lounge, their second of two NYC shows this week. Opening are local goths Pop. 1280, making for a good double bill.
Strand of Oaks, Lewis & Clarke @ Mercury Lounge
After the White Lung show, Merc hosts another great one with Strand of Oaks. His previous output was on the bare bones folk side, but this new record, HEAL (out this week), is a heavily arranged, full band folk rock affair. He'll have the band with him tonight too.
Dave Chappelle, Erykah Badu @ Radio City Music Hall
Comedian Dave Chappelle is back in a big way, doing a whopping 10 nights at Radio City Music Hall. Tonight features musical guest Erykah Badu.
Peter Matthew Bauer (of The Walkmen), AM Mills, Skyler Skjelset-noh @ Rough Trade
With the Walkmen on "extreme hiatus" bassist Peter Matthew Bauer is stretching his wings, creatively, with his first, excellent solo album, Liberation! Celebrate its release tonight.
Iron and Wine, The Secret Sisters @ The Space at Westbury
Iron & Wine continued to shift from the bare bones bedroom folk songwriter he started out as to a band with a bigger, more layered sound on 2013's Ghost on Ghost. Tonight you can see those fuller sounds come to life, and hopefully we'll get to see Sam in solo format for a bit too.
Michael McDonald @ Town Hall (Blue Note Jazz Festival)
Yacht rock icon, g-funk forefather and all-around cool dude, Michael McDonald's music is as smooth as his voice.
The Juan Maclean (DJ set), Tim Sweeney @ Verboten
It's been five years since Juan and Nancy Whang put out a record as The Juan Maclean, but the duo are back in action for real with In A Dream out in September. Maybe they'll drop one of their new tracks tonight. Onetime DFA associate Tim Sweeney opens.
Oddisee (w/ live band Good Company), Louis Logic, E.M.S @ Glasslands
Oddisee makes indie rap that is not only more underground than say, Wiz Khalifa, but also pulls from indie music, with its re-workings of Bon Iver, Metronomy, and others.
Marvin Berry and The New Sound, Gloomy Ones, Nato Coles, The Blue Diamond Band @ The Acheron
Marvin Berry and The New Sound, besides having an excellent Back to the Future reference in their name, are one of Don Giovanni's newest signees and makers of quality garage rock.
The Budos Band, Spires @ Bowery Ballroom
If you like vintage grooves, the Daptone stable's Budos Band lay down seriously funky instrumentals. Spires are groovy in their own way, as well. Can you dig it?

Screaming Females at Bowery Ballroom in 2013 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
NJ shred punks Screaming Females rarely have a lack of shows. Their previously announced tour dates have them in NYC this Saturday (3/22) at ABC No Rio for a matinee with sludge metallers Thou (who also play Vitus the next day), and it won't be long til they're back. The Screamales will celebrate their first live album, Live at the Hideout (recorded in Chicago with Steve Albini), which comes out 4/8 via Don Giovanni, with a NYC release show on May 16 at Brooklyn Night Bazaar with their DG labelmates Marvin Berry and the New Sound. Like all BKNB shows, admission is free.
Updated dates are listed, with a stream of "Lights Out" from the live album, below...
Nude Beach at BV-RBSS show at MHOW in 2013 (more by Dylan Johnson)
As mentioned, Brooklyn garage rockers Marvin Berry and the New Sound have signed to Don Giovanni for their new LP, Bootleg (due out 2/25), and will play a release show for the new album on February 21 at Union Pool with Liquor Store and Hector's Pets. Since we last spoke, that lineup got even better because power pop trio Nude Beach (who just played the Don Giovanni showcase) were added. Advance tickets for the show are available. Nude Beach's only other upcoming dates at the moment are some support slots on The Men's tour (none in NYC), all of which are listed below.
In other Don Giovanni news, New Brunswick punks Brick Mower, who also just played the DG showcase, announced that their new album, Teenage Graceland, will be out on the label on March 25. You can stream its first single, "Shitty Parade," below.
All Nude Beach dates are listed, along with the Brick Mower stream and a few more streams from the new Marvin Berry LP, below...
by Bill Pearis
Jack of Heart hail from the Southern France city of Perpignan which is also home to The Liminanas. Both fall into the "garage" category but Jack of Heart take a more American view, singing mostly in English with a tinny, wild bubblegum sound not too far from Nobunny. You can check out a video and a few streaming tracks below.
The band are currently on tour of North America that hits NYC later this week for two shows: Death by Audio on Thursday (1/30) with 999999999 and The Doozies, and then Cake Shop on Friday (1/31) with Marvin Berry & the New Sound, The Weird Fantasy Band and The Split (That's "Split" not "Spits"). All tour dates are listed below...
by Andrew Sacher
Brooklyn garage rockers Marvin Berry and the New Sound have been playing around their local scene for a while now, and they've just signed to Don Giovanni Records (Screaming Females, Waxahatchee) who will release their debut full length, Bootleg, on February 25. There's hints of '60s garage rock and '70s power pop on the album's first single, "White Jungle," which you can stream below. That's the artwork above.
Marvin Berry and the New Sound were supposed to open for Swearin' at their Rough Trade show (3/7), but they've since dropped off that show and added a record release show happening on February 21 at Union Pool with Liquor Store and Hector's Pets. Admission for that show is $8 at the door.
In other Don Giovanni news, they've put a bunch of stuff up for action on eBay including artwork by Marissa Paternoster (Screaming Females, Noun), test pressings of DG releases, and more.
Don Giovanni also do their annual Brooklyn showcases on 2/6 at Death by Audio and 2/7-8 at MHOW with Screaming Females, Laura Stevenson, California X, Priests, Tenement, Night Birds, Worriers and more. Tickets for DbA and MHOW (including a 2-day pass option) are still available.

Swearin' at Bowery Ballroom in September (more by PSquared)
Swearin' have spent plenty of time on the road this year, and they'll continue to do so into 2014. They've just announced a March run which kicks off in NYC at Cake Shop on 3/6 and Rough Trade on 3/7, which will be the band's first NYC shows since the release of their excellent Surfing Strange LP. The openers for the Rough Trade show are
Marvin Berry and the New Sound Even Hand and Certain Spiders (who previously opened for Waxahatchee In NYC), but no openers have been announced for the Cake Shop show yet. Tickets for the Rough Trade show go on sale Friday (12/6) at noon. No advance tickets for Cake Shop. All dates are listed below.
Swearin' are currently on the road with Waxhatchee, and that tour doesn't hit NYC, but Waxahatchee will play a Pitchfork party with Mutual Benefit on 12/14 in Brooklyn, and their tour with Cayetana and All Dogs hits NYC in January. Swearin' also play New Year's Eve in Philly with Screaming Females.
All dates are listed, along with a video from Surfing Strange, below...

Waxahatchee at Saint Vitus in 2012 (more by Fred Pessaro // BBG)
Waxhatchee (aka Katie Crutchfield, formerly of PS Eliot) will release her sophomore album, Cerulean Salt, on March 5 via Don Giovanni, and you can stream the first single, "Peace and Quiet," below. The album sometimes features a fuller band approach than her mostly acoustic debut, American Weekend, and the recordings aren't as raw, but the songs are no less intimate.
Waxahatchee will be going on a tour this winter which includes two previously discussed NYC dates. One of those is the Don Giovanni showcase at Music Hall of Williamsburg on February 8 with Laura Stevenson and the Cans, Jeffrey Lewis, Lemuria, and Hilly Eye (tickets; and the other is Indie Pop Prom on February 28 at 285 Kent with The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Swearin' (Katie's sister Allison's band), Weed Hounds, and Potty Mouth (tickets). Both shows have great lineups and either would be a good place to see her.
In related news, Katie also plays in the band Great Thunder with her boyfriend Keith Spencer (who also plays bass in Swearin') and that band plays their first Brooklyn show TONIGHT (1/24) at Death by Audio with Heavens Gate, The Guts, and Marvin Berry & the New Sound.
A list of all Waxahatchee dates, the tour flyer and the "Peace and Quiet" stream below...
Shellshag at Cake Shop in June (more by Andrew St. Clair)
Brooklyn's Shellshag just got home from a US tour this week, and though Hurricane Sandy hasn't made NYC the easiest place to return home to, hopefully everything is okay for them. We'd like to assume so because Shellshag are treating Brooklyn to two hometown shows, including one this weekend. First, they'll play XPO 929 on Saturday (11/3) with Moisture and N/A and then later this month they'll play Death by Audio on November 11 with The Max Levine Ensemble, Marvin Berry & the New Sound, and Trepanning. Both shows appear to be happening as scheduled. Tickets for the XPO 929 show are on sale now. No advance tickets for the Death by Audio show.
Marvin Berry & the New Sound also open for Shellshag's one-time Don Giovanni labelmates BIg Eyes when their tour with Audacity hits Death by Audio on November 21.
Shellshag's most recent release is the "Stars n Bars" 7" that came out over the summer. You can stream the title track off that 7" below.
Big Eyes at Knitting Factory in 2010 (more by Andrew St. Clair)
West coast melodic punks Big Eyes and Audacity are teaming up for a split 7" and tour together this fall that hits Brooklyn on November 21 at Death by Audio with Marvin Berry and the New Sound and Space Trash and New Brunswick on November 23 at The Alamo with Wet Witch. The 7" comes out via Volar Records and can be pre-ordered now. All dates on the tour are listed below.
Big Eyes (who are fronted by Kate Eldridge, formerly of Cheeky, and relocated from Brooklyn to Seattle last year) released their debut full length, Hard Life, in 2011 via Don Giovanni, which is also home to Screaming Females, who they've played with in NYC before. They'll follow that with a new LP in 2013 via Grave Mistake Records, who also put out a 7" for the song "Back From The Moon" b/w "I Don't Care About Friday Night" earlier this year. You can stream the a-side of that 7" below. They're also repressing their 2010 demo on Evil Weevil Records and it will be available on the tour.
Audacity, who were last in NYC as King Tuff's backing band, put out their most recent album, Mellow Cruisers, earlier this year via Burger/Recess Records. You can stream that album in its entirety over at Noisey. Back in June, we premiered a video for album single, "Punk Confusion," which if you missed then, you can watch below.
A list of all dates, the tour flier, video and stream below.
Night Birds at House of Vans, August 2012 (more by Fred Pessaro // BBG)
By the end of tonight we should have 10 songs out of our 15 song goal done for our 2nd album. All killer, no filler. Making progress...That forthcoming new LP is the follow-up to thier killer The Other Side of Darkness, which hit late last year. Pray for some new tunes when the band takes on Cake Shop tonight (9/28) with Sonic Avenues, Marvin Berry & The New Sound and Trepanning. $10 gets you in.
In addition to tonight's appearance at Cake Shop, look for the band to play October 6 at Brighton Bar in Long Branch, NJ with Angry Samoans (who play NYC next week) and Chronic Sick, as well as shows at Acheron with Toys That Kill and Chaos in Tejas next year.

The Two Funerals at Death by Audio in 2011 (via)
Richmond punks The Two Funerals list their band interests as "DIY spaces, house shows, feminisms, and ROCKING WITH THE TOUGH GRRRLS," and their influences as Sleater-Kinney, Bikini Kill, and Sonic Youth, so they're probably pretty psyched that they're opening for former Sleater-Kinney member Corin Tucker when her tour passes through their hometown. And from the sounds of the title track of their 2011 Boys Club EP (which you can stream below), The Two Funerals wear their influences on their sleeves, but they wear them well. Maybe you caught the band in NYC opening for PS Eliot at their final show (and are playing with PS Eliot spinoff Swearin' at a Philly show on their upcoming tour), or in NJ earlier this year at C.L.I.T. Fest.
Those aforementioned upcoming shows with Corin Tucker and Swearin' are part of a 5-night tour of the Northeast which kicks off in CT next week and culminates with a Brooklyn show at Tommy's Tavern on September 20 (1041 Manhattan Ave in Brooklyn) with Marvin Berry and the New Sound, Wide Angles, Gameday Regulars, and Crow Bait. Admission for that show is $5 at the door.
A list of all dates and that song stream are below.

The Babies at Glasslands - 6/6/12
The Babies joined up with new Other Music Recording Co. singees Nude Beach, plus Marvin Berry & The New Sound, Highway Gimps for a show at Glasslands on Wednesday (6/6). More pictures from that show are in this post.
You'll have plenty more chances to catch Nude Beach in NYC.
Brooklyn band Nude Beach's new LP II has a a pronounced punk edge, while falling somewhere between the Americana of Tom Petty, Bruce Springsteen and The Replacements. The sunny, well-crafted, and damn-near infinitely playable straight-up rock n' roll long-player, out now on vinyl, is currently streaming in full below. Order your copy via No Idea or get the digital via the band.
Nude Beach will play Glasslands on June 6th, joining Marvin Berry & The New Sound and Highway Gimps as support for The Babies. Tickets are on sale. The band will also hit Philadelphia on June 19th at Kung Fu Necktie as support for Reigning Sound (tickets) during that band's string of dates (that hit NJ).
