Anna Von Hausswolff at Glasslands in July (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows. Here are some highlights...
Luscious Jackson, All Night Chemists, ADW Young @ Webster Hall
Funky '90s band -- and Beastie Boys pals -- Luscious Jackson are back in action with a new album, their first in 14 years. Expect Clinton-era classics like "Naked Eye" too.
Real Estate, Bare Mutants, Free Time, Turnip King @ Baby's All Right
Get a taste of Real Estate's new album tonight at this newish, smallish Williamsburg club. It's actually a great bill all-around, with Chicago's Bare Mutants (featuring members of Ponys and The 1900s), plus Australian ex-pats Free Time and locals Turnip King.
Cyndi Lauper, P!NK, Nelly Furtado, The Hives, Ingrid Michaelson, Matt & Kim, Big Freedia & more @ Beacon Theater
It's Cyndi Lauper's 'Home for the Holidays' show and since girls just wanna have fun, she's invited a huge variety of friends to join her including some pop stars, the always-energetic Hives, and the also always-energetic (but in a much different way) Big Freedia, plus Matt & Kim and many more.
Au Revoir Simone, Spires, Splashh, Grooms @ Brooklyn Night Bazaar
This weekend's Brooklyn Night Bazaar shows are curated by Kanine Records, who offer up a good bill tonight, with sythpop trio Au Revoir Simone, paisley janglers Spires, UK act Splashh (in shrunken form) and noisemakers Grooms.
Chuck Strangers, Fresh Daily (Beat Haus) @ Converse Rubber Tracks
Joey Bada$$ isn't the only talented member of the Pro Era crew. Chuck Strangers is a key member of the group too and you can catch him on his own at Converse Rubber Tracks tonight.
Ballroom, The Soupcans, The Estrogen Highs, Chat Logs, Melk Belly @ Death By Audio
Toronto's The Soupcans make speedy post-hardcore filled with all the anger, sarcasm, and weirdness you need. They're in NYC for two shows this weekend, both of which should get pretty intense. This is the second.
The Deer Tracks, Ice Choir, Late Guest at the Party @ Glasslands
Swedish electronic duo The Deer Tracks headline tonight's show, but we also like Ice Choir -- aka Pains drummer Kurt Feldman's band that owes most of its sound to Scritti Politti.
Rock Lottery @ Knitting Factory
Members of Quicksand, Afghan Whigs, DIIV, A Place to Bury Strangers, Dresden Dolls, Antibalas, Sannhet and more will be formed into new bands this morning where they'll then spend the day writing original material to perform tonight. All proceeds are for charity and is always a lot of fun.
Machinedrum (Vapor City Live), Om Unit, Nick Hook, Body Language (DJ set), Angelica Bess @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Machinedrum is one half of Sepalcure, and also an excellent artist on his own. Tonight he celebrates his new Vapor City album with a very solid list of openers joining him.
Las Rosas, Grand Resort, Slowdance @ Radio Bushwick
Here's a good trio of bands, and a good reason to check out this new Bushwick music venue.
Revenge, Mausoleum, Engorge, Mutilation Rites @ Saint Vitus
Canadian war metal band Revenge descends upon NYC for a two-night stand at Saint Vitus this weekend. Local black metal band Mutilation Rites kick things off, and they're great too.
Moistboyz (feat. Dickie & Mickie Moist/Dean Ween), Gibby Haynes (DJ) @ Stage 48
Ween is done, but Dean Ween is continuing to provide weirdo rock with his band Moistboyz. And speaking of weirdo rock, Gibby Haynes of the Butthole Surfers is DJing, and something tells me if anyone is sure to turn a DJ set into something much more memorable, it's Gibby Haynes.
Spacehog, Sponge, Lionize, Trapper Schoepp & The Shades @ Marlin Room at Webster Hall
Glam rockers Spacehog and grunge rockers Sponge on the same bill -- is this 1997?
Lupe Fiasco @ The Wellmont Theatre
Lupe Fiasco plans to release his new album Tetsuo and Youth in early 2014 (so, in non-rap speak, basically whenever), but until then he'll be doing some shows, including four nights in the NYC-area this month. This is the first.
Anna von Hausswolff, Noveller @ The Mercury Lounge
Master of the church organ, AvH will bring her cathedral vibes -- and otherworldly voice -- to Mercury Lounge, her second NYC show this weekend with Noveller.
Goblin, Zombi @ Starland Ballroom
Italian prog legends Goblin finally went on their first North American tour earlier this year, but they've got more dates before the year ends, including tonight's NJ show and tomorrow's NYC show, both of which are with experimental duo Zombi.
Champagne Jerry w/ Ad-Rock @ Joe's Pub
Rapper/performance artist Champagne Jerry has ties to other Joe's Pub regulars like Bridget Everett and Carmine Covelli, and he'll playing one show a month there during the rollout process of his upcoming album. Tonight's show is also special because Beastie Boy Ad-Rock, who appears on CJ's recent single, will be in the house.
Pink Floyd Laser Spectacular @ The Capitol Theatre
Via LaserSpectular.com: "After 25 years of touring,Paramount's LaserSpectacular has become a cult classic, presenting the music of Pink Floyd, as you have never seen it before. Surrounded by 50,000 watts of concert quality sound, Pink Floyd's musical legacy continues as the band's concept music captures the imagination and carries listeners away on a mind-expanding journey driven by cutting-edge effects. Colorful lasers and lighting effects parallel the sonic journey as the senses are confronted with an array of glowing visual displays choreographed to the soundtrack during the 2-hour-and-20-minute show."
Deidre & The Dark @ The Gutter
Diedra just played MHOW last night with her band Savoir Adore, and tonight her solo project plays the back room at The Gutter.

TOY @ BV SXSW 2013 (more by Sarah Frankie Linder)
UK motorik shoegazers TOY were supposed to play NYC back in March while the band were coming over for SXSW. The Austin shows happened (like at one of our SXSW day shows) but NYC didn't -- a personal bummer to this writer, as their debut album was one of my favorites of 2012. Good news, TOY will be stopping in NYC on their way to the Corona Capital Fest in Mexico City, playing Glasslands on October 10. Tickets to that show go on sale Friday (7/26) at 10 AM.
The Corona Capital Fest happens October 12 & 13 at Mexico City's Hermanos Rodriguez Autodrome. You can check out the line-up -- which includes Phoenix, Arctic Monkeys, QOTSA, Vampire Weekend, The xx and more -- below and tickets are on sale now.
TOY video and Corona Capital Fest flyer are below.

Passion Pit / Vampire Weekend / Amanda Palmer / devoted fan
The final day of the fest gave us sets by a number of artists including Haim, Toro y Moi, Matt & Kim, Vampire Weekend, The Walkmen, and Passion Pit, whose set was cut short. Reports Fuse...
On Sunday Passion Pit also had problems with their vocals, but in this case the culprit wasn't technical... it was allergies.We missed Toro y Moi and The Walkmen in part due to the rain that showed up that day too, but everything we did see is pictured in this post.
Clearly the Firefly fates have it in for Passion Pit. Last year the band had to cancel their performance at the fest so that frontman Michael Angelakos could undergo treatment for his bipolar disorder. This year they at least got to take the stage, but only for an abbreviated set.
Diving right in with "I'll Be Alright," "The Reeling" and "Carried Away," the band - and in particular drummer Nate Donmoyer and bassist Jeff Apruzzese - displayed a powerful musicianship that explodes in a live setting much more so than on record. Only after slowing things down for "To Kingdom Come" did Angelakos confess to the crowd that he needed help singing, because allergies had caused him to lose his voice. He also referenced last year's cancellation by saying he "can't catch a f-cking break with this festival."
Just seven songs in, Angelakos raised the white flag, admitting "I don't know how long I can go." At that point the band threw out their setlist and chose to "wrap this up with songs people know."
We at BrooklynVegan also took over a stage in the Soundwave tent with our hosts Dave Hill and Billy Jones each day from 1-3pm. On the Sunday of the festival we had Trails and Ways and Amanda Palmer stop by for live performances and interviews. They were both great, but naturally Amanda left us with the most to talk about, not just from the day but from the whole weekend. A loyal crowd showed up to see her at 2pm and she proceeded to take requests, play 'Happy Birthday' and the "best song she ever wrote" which ended up being 'The Truth'. She invited one lucky fan to play ukulele and that fan ended up being Sabrina who killed it with a Gotye cover. She ended her set with a group singalong to 'Creep' which started in our tent and ended in the middle of the field.

Lollapalooza 2012 (more by James Richards IV)
After it was already confirmed that Phoenix, Vampire Weekend, The Postal Service, The National, The Killers, and Mumford and Sons were playing Lollapalooza 2013, a pretty promising leak came which appeared to potentially reveal the rest of the lineup, and it turns out that leak was real.
In addition to the previously mentioned artists, Lollapalooza will include Nine Inch Nails, Queens of the Stone Age, Kendrick Lamar, Grizzly Bear, The Cure, New Order, Baroness, Beach House, Cat Power, Death Grips, Jessie Ware, Father John Misty, DIIV, Wavves, Alt-J, Hot Chip, Disclosure, Baauer, Palma Violets, Angel Haze, Band of Horses, Crystal Castles and many others.
Lollapalooza goes down in Chicago from August 2 - 4 in Grant Park. Single day passes go on sale Wednesday (4/3) at 10 AM.

A still from 'Mistaken for Strangers'
The National, who'll headline the Barclays Center in June, are the subject of a new tour documentary, Mistaken for Strangers, which will make its premiere at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival (April 17 - 28). The film was directed by Tom Berninger, whose brother Matt is lead singer of The National. Here's the synopsis:
Adrift in life and fuelled by the desire to create, Tom Berninger accepts his brother's offer to come on The National tour as a roadie and decides to chronicle his experiences with the band. Although Tom starts off with dreams of making a rock documentary (you can watch the portaits he made on each of the band members), a different story emerges as tensions among the band members lead to unforeseen drama. Following the band from Berlin to Paris to Los Angeles to a 2010 Obama rally in Madison, Wisconsin, Mistaken for Strangers is not your typical road documentary.The film will screen on April 17 and will be followed by a special live performance by The National.
Festival packages go on sale to AmEx cardholders on Monday (3/4), which is one day before the entire slate of films for Tribeca will be announced. Festival passes go on sale to the general public following Monday (3/11). Individual tickets will go on sale 4/9 for AmEx cardholders, 4/14 for downtown residents and 4/15 to the general public.
In related news, The National are co-headlining (with fun.) the Boston Calling Music Festival which goes down in Beantown on May 25 and 26. The fest also includes appearances by The Shins, Of Monsters & Men, Dirty Projectors, Andrew Bird and more. Tickets to Boston Calling go sale Friday, March 8 and the whole line-up is below.
UK bass duo Disclosure, last here in October, will be back in March -- not for SXSW but the 2013 Ultra Music Festival in Miami which takes place over two weekends (3/15 - 17 and 3/22 - 24). The festival also features appearances from Tiësto, David Guetta, Armin van Buuren and Avicii, Hot Chip, Crystal Castles, Calvin Harris, Carl Cox, Fatboy Slim, and more. Disclosure is only playing the first weekend. Full "Phase 1" line-up is below, with more to be announced later.
While in North America, the duo will also make time for two shows in NYC: March 20 at Music Hall of Williamsburg and March 21 at Bowery Ballroom. Tickets to both shows go on sale Friday (1/18) at noon.
Disclosure are currently experiencing success in their home country as single "Latch" is sitting in the UK Top 20. You can stream it below.

Art Goblins are sort of Art Brut, and Art Goblins only sort of played in Brooklyn on Saturday night....
Art (Brut) Goblins @ Music Hall, NYC - Oct 20, 2007 (CRED)
"Art Goblins didn’t play their 9:15pm set because Eddie missed his flight and arrived to the venue late. When presented with the fact that they may not play, they decided to play an semi-plugged in set in the Music Hall lobby." [Metromix]
"Art Goblins missed their opening set but treated the crowd to a short impromptu set of Art Brut songs as everyone was leaving. With just an amp in the corner of the lobby and a screaming Eddie Argos, it was the perfect way to close out CMJ. We walked home and slept for 24 hours." [Obscene NYC]
Against Me! @ MHOW, Brooklyn, NYC - Sept 05, 2007 (CRED)
Though not completely finished inside, the new Brooklyn venue called Music Hall of Williamsburg opened with a show by David Dondero, Matt & Kim, and Against Me! last night. Already there are conflicting viewpoints in the comments. One positive:
just back from the show....it was super sweet! the venue isn't 100% done yet, but in solid shape and can't wait to see more shows in this space. for as much as people bitched about it opening a day late it's a far nicer and better venue (in every sense) then plenty of other "venues" i've been to in BK.One sort of negative:
The venue is nice, set up just like Bowery Ballroom and everything is brand new but sort of corny--leather couches, etc. It's a bit too slick and polished and made me miss the old Northsix. Also, the bathrooms are oddly situated right under the drums so it sounds like the floors are going to collapse. The security guys were assholes and gave a lot of people grief over minor bullshit. Honestly, I would probably only return there for bands I really really love who I couldn't see anywhere else--it wasn't a pleasant experience.The Patti Smith show has been rescheduled for tonight (Sept 6, 2007).
opening tonight? (via Gothamist)
The new Music Hall of Williamsburg was supposed to open last night with a show by Patti Smith. As you know, it didn't. The new first show at the new venue is set to start at 7PM tonight (in five hours). Tour-mates David Dondero, Matt & Kim and Against Me! are all on the bill, and it is sold out. So far, it's not cancelled, but according to Gothamist:
What we do know is that construction is still going on. We went over there less than an hour ago and as you can see from our pics -- the venue is still being built. We snuck inside for a minute and, granted we're no construction experts, we don't think there is any way this place is opening tonight. Looks like once it does, though, it'll be a nice space.Stay tuned.
In the meantime, Against Me!'s next planned NYC show has been revealed- November 17th at the OTHER new Bowery Presents venue (Terminal 5 - which is set to open in October). Tickets go on sale Friday. A video from Against Me!'s recent Letterman appearance, and all tour dates, below....
Iggy Pop and The Stooges (CRED)
