Though the more pedestrian "Fashion's Night Out" ended in NYC in 2012, the more high brow New York Fashion Week continues year after year and is back upon us once more. As always, that means lots of parties we can't get into, with performances by some of our most loved and hated musical artists. This year, as PAPER lists out in a handy guide, includes shows by Kiesza (tonight at a party co-hosted by Sophia Lamar, The Misshapes, Mike Nouveau and more -- -flyer above), Jarvis Cocker (tonight as part of a big extravaganza in Madison Square Park with Sofia Coppola, Angela McCluskey, Kalup Linzy and more --- see flyer above and HERE), Banks (tonight and tomorrow), Maluca (tomorrow), Pharrell (maybe?), secret guests and more. Unfortunately almost everything is invite only, but where there's a will, there's a way?
Banks' upcoming show at Terminal 5 is also going to be hard to get into (sold out), but you can try to get in to the much-more-public-and-practically-free Banks in-store at Rough Trade in Brooklyn on 9/9.
Spike Jonze and Jonah Hill are also in on the fun. They "have teamed to produce and write a one-act play for the fall New York Fashion Week presentation of Opening Ceremony's Spring 2015 line."
What else is happening? Leave tips in the comments.

Local Natives, who were just in NYC, made a video for their track "Heavy Feet" and you can watch that below.
What says "til death do us part" more than Slayer's "Raining Blood"? Check out video of a couple's wedding where the classic tune was used in a rather, er, unique way.
Will Sheff at SXSW 2012 (more by Tim Griffin)

The So So Glos will be hosting a benefit in NYC on November 15. More details TBA.
This one's not a show, but Buke & Gase, who once called Red Hook, Brooklyn home, have put out a new single on bandcamp, "Hard Times" b/w a cover of New Order's "Blue Monday." The single can be downloaded for $5 or more and all proceeds over the next week will benefit the recovery of Red Hook. You can stream those two tracks below.
Meanwhile, Jarvis is already in NYC and preparing for a different kind of performance taking place at the Whitney Museum from April 5-8. As Art In America leaked the other day:
Jarvis Cocker, lead singer of Pulp, will play live on the Whitney Museum's fourth floor, according to a source with knowledge of the event. The British musician will perform Apr. 5-8 with his side project, Relaxed Muscle, alongside Michael Clark's dance company, organized as part of the Whitney Biennial.Tickets have been gone for these shows way before anyone knew Jarvis Cocker would be performing at them, but as the article points out, and the Whitney confirms:
Cocker formed Relaxed Muscle in 2002, following Pulp's break up. He performs as "Darren Spooner," using a violent performance style and over-the-top goth costumes and make-up. The group has maintained a relatively low profile since their sole album release in 2003.
Tickets are required to attend, and advance tickets are sold out. A limited number of tickets become available each day of the performance.
A limited number of tickets will be available at the Museum on the day of each performance on a first-come, first-served basis beginning at 11 am (1 pm on Fridays). The performance is free with Museum admission, but special entry tickets are required. We encourage anyone unable to get entry tickets to join the standby line which forms a half-hour before each performance. Museum admission is required to join the standby line.Note that the Whitney doesn't reveal Jarvis will be there, but he will. Good luck!
Jarvis is also DJing a Kurt Cobain-related party while in town. More details below...
The National played Milk Studios Wednesday. Kanye West didn't play, but he was hanging out at the "Best New Menswear Designers in America Fall 2011 Collections event" at Ace Hotel last night. Creep (with Nina Sky) are playing Tribeca Grand tonight.
We know Arcade Fire won't be playing any Fashion Week shows - not because they're not fashionable, but because they're playing a show in LA tonight. The occasion is that, like Dr. Dre and Bob Dylan, they're in California to play the Grammys on Sunday.

A rumor is going around that Thom Yorke is here and possibly performing, but Men.Style.com says...
I've got some good news and some bad news for all you fashion, music, and fashion music fans. The bad news first: Despite the rumors Twittering around the Interwebs, Thom Yorke will not, in fact, be playing tomorrow's Rag & Bone show. The good news, however, is that the Radiohead singer did "curate" the tunes that'll accompany the models down the runway. Guess he's returning the favor after the nice bomber jacket the lads hooked him up with for the Grammys. (Notably, Lil Wayne also wore the brand last Sunday--who knows, maybe he's hard at work on a playlist for Spring 2010.) In any case, autograph seekers should leave the Sharpies at home, as I'm told Yorke won't even be at the show. (I assume the same's true for Wayne.)In other Thom Yorke
This is the second time Terminator Salvation came up recently. The first was because of Christian Bale freaking out.

Jimmy Webb, VIP, Jackson & Leigh Lezark @ Misshapes - July 28, 2007 (CRED)
Misshapes (the weekly Saturday night party at Don Hill's in NYC) ended for good this past Saturday night (Sept 8, 2007). David Byrne and the NY Times were among those in attendance.
Where will young, hip tourists looking for a good time on a Saturday night go now? Will they make the trip over to Brooklyn to experience the equally hip dance craze that's been going on over at Studo B? Or are they too glamorous to cross the river to mingle with the less fashion-conscious breed of hipster that I just learned about in an article (by someone I know) in the NY Post?...
"Manhattan has larger venues, but Brooklyn people who are dialed in probably don't give a crap about those places," says Todd Patrick, a Brooklyn concert promoter known as Todd P. "More tours are stopping in Brooklyn, and the scene is a billion times better than when everything revolved around Manhattan."......"The early-20s hipsters left in Manhattan are a more dance-club oriented crowd," says Patrick. "People who are paying Manhattan rents are interested in glamour, not rock 'n' roll."........"Manhattan hipsters are definitely more into fashion, or at least labels," says DJ Mike Nouveau, part of Manhattan party promoters the Ruff Kids, who are often seen in clothes by the trendy brand Surface to Air. "Where someone I know might go to Barneys to buy an outfit, someone in Brooklyn will go to [used clothing store] Beacon's Closet."....[NY Post]In related news, Misshapes the book came out on September 4th. You'll need it to complete your collection that also includes the Last Night's Party book, and doorman Thomas Onorato's memoir entitled "Confessions from the Velvet Ropes".
They are notorious for their highly provocative lyrics, aggressive stage shows, and brutal electronic-influenced rock. Their mix of electric guitar and electronic drum machines is accompanied by highly politically-charged and often sexually graphic lyrics. Due to their highly provocative image, as well as their name, Selfish C*nt have a mixed reputation amongst critics, and have had a great deal of media coverage, in spite of their low record sales and small fanbase, particularly in The Guardian, which named them as one of the 40 most important bands in the UK.Tommie Sunshine is also DJing. For more DJ events in NYC this weekend, check out David Bruno's week in dance.
UPDATE: The band is playing Misshapes Saturday night too. (thx Jackson)
(As I've previously bitched) Picking 2 hours of commercial-free music for my Sirius radio show each week is a lot of work, especially when you have no time to begin with. So what better way to lighten the work load than to include special guests on the show, especially when the special guests are picking out half the music!
I picked the first 16 songs...
1) Scott Walker - Psoriatic
A few weeks ago the Village Voice ran a cover story by Tricia Romano called "The Sober Bunch". It tells the story of New York nightlife's sober hipsters" - DJ Tommy Sunshine, Motherf*cker/FIXED's Justine D, Kenny Kenny, The World FamousBOB*, Michael Cavadias, Murray Hill, Steven Lewis, Princess Superstar, Tommie Sunshine, Larry Tee, party promoter Mike Nouveau, and others.
Tonight (Wed, June 21, 2006) two of those sober hipsters will help get you drunk on free non-vegan-jello shots and free PBR (from 9-10). It's Nouveau' @ Fat Baby in NYC. Larry Tee DJs. Mike Nouveau DJs and hosts. Flyer below...
