Christmas Roundup

It's that time of year again. Like "All I Want is Christmas is You," holiday shows in NYC are omnipresent. We've already posted about NYC Hanukkah shows, now here's a roundup of just about everything else.

Darlene Love is playing four "Love For the Holidays" shows like last year at BB King Blues Club on December 20, 26, January 2 and 16 (tickets). Another Phil Spector associate, Ronnie Spector, is doing her annual Christmas shows this year at City Winery on December 22-23 (tickets).

India Arie is doing a Christmas show at Irving Plaza on December 15 with Johnathan Reynolds, and tickets for that show are on sale now.

There are also plenty of options for your holiday burlesque needs. Le Poisson Rouge is doing a few Christmas burlesque shows: Burlesque-A-Pades: Sleigh Ride on December 12 (tickets) and It's A Hot Pink Christmas on December 20 (tickets). Elsewhere: The burlesque troupe Wasabassco is putting on a late "Holiday Season Spectacular" at City Winery (tickets). Wassabasco will also be at Bell House on December 4 for a 70's themed Christmas show (tickets).

Mariah Carey is doing a run of holiday shows again this year at the Beacon Theatre on December 8-18 , and tickets for that are on sale now. For slightly less moolah and slighty less actual Mariah, there's a FREE Mariah Carey-themed party called "Party Like It's 1999: All I Want for Christmas is Mariah Edition." at The Bell House on December 5. Meanwhile, Union Hall is also doing a Holiday Pop Singalong on December 18 that promises to feature Mariah prominently, along with Bowie, Bieber, Wham! and more (tickets).

Speaking of The Bell House, they might be the kings of holiday shows. (Makes sense: the place is the ski lodge of NYC music venues.) Look at all these:  Buzzfeed's Kwanzaa Show on December 5, which is a sold-out taping of Buzzfeed's "Another Round" podcast with musical accompaniment by Jean Grae. The next night (12/6)  is "Landlady Holiday Spectacular," with people like Nels Cline, Eli Paperboy Reed, Cassandra Jenkins, Nick Hakim and more, which features live music and production of Landlady's holiday play Red Velvet: An Ill-Conceived Santa Story (tickets).

Lots and lots more holiday shows are listed below...

Lee Ranaldo

Zeena Parkins (Bjork, Nels Cline, Lee Ranaldo, Phantom Orchard, etc), Ikue Mori (DNA, Phantom Orchard, Kim Gordon, Thurston Moore) Colin Marston (Krallice, Gorguts), Mick Barr (Krallice, Orthrelm), Toby Driver (Kayo Dot), Chuck Bettis, John Zorn and many other talented people can be found playing and curating East Village club The Stone in November and December.

Zeena is curating from November 17-22 and her residency kicks off with an 8 PM set with Nate Wooley and a 10 PM set with White Out on 11/7. Her group Phantom Orchard plays two sets on 11/18. Nels Cline and many more join her the days that follow. Check out her full schedule below. All upcoming events at The Stone can be seen HERE.

Meanwhile, a group of Stone regulars will be playing a special show at Santos Party House on November 11. The show is a benefit for the Film-Makers Cooperative called Live/Film/Sound/Tracks, which as the name implies will feature live-scoring of 16mm films from its collection. The impressive lineup of talent includes Alan Licht, Lee Ranaldo, Wollesonic, Bill Morrison, Lea Bertucci, Victoria Keddie with MV Carbon, Dafna Naphtali and Optipus with the Underworld Oscillator Corporation. Tickets are on sale now. The films screened will be announced the night of the event.

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

Future Punx, Pill, Eaters, Beth Israel, Heaven's Gate, Steep Leans, MPHO, Sneaks, WALL, Final Bloom, Justin Frye, Order of Operations @ Silent Bar
Dull Tools is bringing you this CMJ hangover party at Silent bar, which is up and running after some post-fire renovations. Pretty much every band on the label is playing and should be a lot of fun. The earlier you go, the cheaper admission is. Starts at 3 PM.

Owen Pallett/Les Mouches, Foxes In Fiction, Four Visions, Infinity Crush, Yohuna @ Orchid Tapes living room
Indie label Orchid Tapes is throwing this tiny post-CMJ party in their living room (only 35 people admitted) and most excitingly, Owen Pallett is on board to revisit songs from his old trio Les Mouches. They reissued their album You're Worth More To Me Than 1000 Christians on Orchid Tapes over the summer.

Man Man, Prince Rama @ Brooklyn Bowl
There really aren't any bands quite like either Man Man or Prince Rama, so needless to say, fans of eccentric music may want to be at Brooklyn Bowl tonight.

Oshun, Proda, Khalil @ C'mon Everybody
Oshun released their debut mixtape this year which they self-describe as "Floetry meets Lauryn Hill meets Chief Keef" which is pretty spot on.

White Out with Nels Cline, Mountains @ (le) poisson rouge
There's no doubt that guitarist Nels Cline is a master of his instrument (well, maybe if you're Mark Kozelek there is) and he's also extremely prolific in several projects. His group White Out have a new album called Accidental Sky on Northern Spy, and this is the release show. Local drone duo Mountains are not to miss either.

Razor, Blood Feast, Resistance, Anvil Bitch, Darkside NYC, Sweet Magma @ Saint Vitus
This is the final day of Brooklyn's Rage of Armageddon festival at Saint Vitus, which brings together a number of veteran death and thrash bands. It's Razor's second night at the festival, and they're promising an entirely different set.

Future Punx, Pill, Eaters, Beth Israel, Heaven's Gate, Steep Leans, MPHO, Sneaks, WALL, Final Bloom, Justin Frye, Order of Operations @ Silent Barn

Sam Amidon, Aoife O'Donovan, Thomas Bartlett @ St. Anne's Warehouse
This is the opening celebration for the new location of St. Ann's Warehouse and it's got a trio of great musicians on board.

Subhumans, Orphans, Opposition Rising @ The Acheron
It's the second of two nights for punk legends Subhumans at the up close and personal Bushwick club Acheron. Punk fans should not miss this.

Bethlehem Steel, Fern Mayo, Diet Cig, Downies, Comfy, PWR BTTM, I Tried To Run Away When I Was 6, Vagabon, Hiccup, Sports, ROMP, Nicholas Nicholas @ Palisades
CMJ might be officially over, but Father/Daughter and Miscreant are throwing their joint showcase today. It starts at 3:30 PM and goes til around midnight, and it's pretty stacked. Especially of note is Ohio's Sports, who have basically said they're done touring (so catch 'em while you can!).

The Wonder Years, Motion City Soundtrack, State Champs, You Blew It! @ Webster Hall
The Wonder Years are a polished pop punk band that even people who don't normally listen to polished pop punk could get into. It's emotional, cathartic stuff, and it's even better live. Motion City Soundtrack are another (slightly older) band who also push the boundaries of that genre, and You Blew It! are a newer band who do a lot of justice to '90s emo.

Michael Chapman, Steve Gunn, Bridget St. John @ WFMU Monty Hall
Two legends of the '60s British folk scene, Michael Chapman and Bridget St John, come together for this show. Opening is a much newer artist (who probably takes inspiration from that era), Steve Gunn.

For all of tonight's shows, and tomorrow's, check out our NYC concert calendar.

playmates: Connan and friend (via @connanmockasin)
Connan Mockasin

We haven't seen Connan Mockasin here in NYC for about a year when he was last in town to help Baby's All Right celebrate their first anniversary (and to help the crowd get naked). He's heading back our way later this year to play a show at new Williamsburg venue National Sawdust on December 2. It's listed as an album release show but his label Mexican Summer say there's nothing on the way this year -- though he did record with Dev Hynes at the Marfa Myths festival earlier this year. As said before, the performance room at NS is very intimate which, given Connan's proclivity for crowd interaction, could make for a memorable evening. Tickets are on sale.

In somewhat related news, Yuka Honda of Cibo Matto (who played the venue's opening night) will play with frequent collaborator Nels Cline at National Sawdust on October 16. Tickets are on sale now for the hour-long performance.

End of Love @ Stone Pony, 2014 (photo by Connie Freestone)
End of Love at Stone Pony

Early-'00s Americana powerpop band End of Love reformed in 2013 and have been working on a new album titled Ghosts on the Radio which features Big Star's Jody Stephens on drums, plus guest appearances by Nels Cline, Chris Stamey, Irwin Menken of Lee Ranaldo's band and more. Jody tells us a little more about how it came about:

I got involved as a member of End of Love in November of 2013. I had met Irwin in Europe a year earlier when I was touring with Big Star Third and he was playing bass for Lee Ranaldo. We ran into each other again about 18 months later in New York. He told me about the project and asked if I'd play drums on a couple of tracks. He and Jay came to Ardent in Memphis and we had a great day in the studio. Over dinner he asked me to join the band and I agreed.

At the time I was beginning to work with Luther Russell on what has turned out to be Those Pretty Wrongs. In that project I am co-writing with Luther and singing but not playing drums live. Big Star's Third live, Chris Stamey's idea, affords me the chance to play drums and sing Big Star songs. An incredibly special event, but it only happens a few times a year.

So, when Irwin asked me to join End of Love it seemed like a great opportunity to continue to play drums and to feel like I'm making a contribution to songs I like. It also only happens a few times a year so it's all a nice fit.

End of Love's album, Ghosts on the Radio, will be out December 11 but until then you can listen to "Take This Heart" which makes its premiere in this post. Listen, and check out album art and tracklist, below...

Nico Muhly / Philip Glass / Tanya Tagaq @ National Sawdust 10/1/2015
National Sawdust Opening Night: Volume 1

National Sawdust Opening Night: Volume 1

Years in the planning, new not-for-profit, artist-led venue National Sawdust finally opened its doors on Thursday night with two disparate "discover the space" inaugural shows. A former actual Williamsburg sawdust factory, the space has been radically tranformed into a very unique space. The entrance and bar occupy a narrow, but tall space with shiny black walls jutting at odd angles. When the door to the main space opened, it revealed a chamber hall, all white with geometric pattern on the walls which can be used as a movie screen (or to project names of the performers). It looks kind of like the Death Star.

It's also smaller than I was expecting. (Official capacity is less than 200.) There's no stage and it feels a bit like a recording studio (which it will double as). The early show, featuring Philip Glass, Nico Muhly, Chis Thile, Nels Cline, Canadian inuit throat singer Tanya Tagaq, NS artist in residence Glen Kotchke, and NS curator Jeffrey Zeigler, was seated. But the late show -- Cibo Matto (with Nels Cline and Sean Lennon), a collaboration between steel drum composer Andy Akiho, Zeigler, and poet Roger Bonair-Agard, and a DJ set from James Muphy -- was standing room only and felt more like a DIY show where bands play on the floor. (Albeit a DIY show where people were dressed to the nines and tickets were $100.) There's a balcony across the back of the chamber hall as well. Sound was great and both the Roger Bonair-Agard and Cibo Matto sets were really fun.

A show like that, for me, is where this space's potential really becomes evident. You get intimacy as well as acoustics. While watching Roger Bonair-Agard my mind immediately went to Kate Tempest and thinking how incredible it would be to see her at National Sawdust. Something like Majical Cloudz, who play the venue on October 21 (tickets only $15 for that one), should be interesting too. Most of the programming is of the BAM/Ecstatic Music Festival variety, definitely something Williamsburg hasn't had too much of before. It will be interesting to see how programming goes forward -- but if there's a performer you like playing here, it will mostly likely be a unique experience.

Tonight at National Sawdust, Tanya Tagaq will perform her score to silent documentary Nanook of the North at 8 PM (tickets), and then at 10 PM pianist and keyboardist Leo Genovese will present Legal Aliens, "a new set of compositions for a large ensemble comprised of musicians from around the world" (tickets).

Other shows of note:  MatmosJohn ZornRoomful of Teeth, and more on Saturday (10/3) as part of the Terry Riley festival (tickets); Pitchfork/Blackened Music's Tinnitus Music Series with Sunn O)))'s Stephen O'Malley, Glenn Branca Ensemble guitarist Reg Bloor and Psalm Zero's Andrew Hock on October 25 (tickets); and Real Estate's Martin Courtney on November 20 (tickets).

More pictures from National Sawdust's opening night, below...

National Sawdust

National Sawdust, the former Williamsburg sawdust factory on N. 6th St. that has been turned into a multi-use facility containing a chamber hall, a recording studio, and a restaurant (three years and $16 million in the making), will finally open its doors this week. Thursday's opening night (10/1) features two "Discover the Space" show. The early show (7:30 PM) has Nico Muhly performing a new piece with Bryce Dessner and violist Nadia Sirota, Inuit throat singer Tanya Tagaq, National Sawdust Executive Director and composer Paola Prestini and more (sold out).

Then the late show (11 PM) has Cibo Matto performing with Nels Cline. They're playing a set from "National Sawdust Curators & Artists" which includes steel pan performer and composer Andy Akiho, cellist Jeffrey Zeigler, and poet Roger Bonair-Agard, and also a DJ set from James Murphy. tickets are still available and you can save 25% with coupon code: ARTISTLED.

Friday night (10/2) has two shows: Tanya Tagaq (performing a live score to Nanook of the North (tickets); and also pianist and keyboardist Leo Genovese who will present Legal Aliens, "a new set of compositions for a large ensemble comprised of musicians from around the world" (tickets).

There's also the start of the Terry Riley festival on Saturday (10/3) with Matmos, John Zorn, Roomful of Teeth, and more (tickets). Zorn gets his own festival starting next week, and other October events include Hess is More and Low City on 10/17 (tickets), and Montreal's Majical Cloudz and She-Devils on 10/21 (tickets). In November there's producer/remixer/video artist Shura on 11/6 (tickets) and Real Estate's Martin Courtney on 11/20 (tickets) and both of those shows are presented by Billy Jones of Baby's All Right and Elvis Guesthouse.

There's lots more coming up at National Sawdust, check out their calendar for details.

Lydia Lunch

Retrovirus, no wave legend Lydia Lunch's project with Weasel Walter (Flying Luttenbachers, Behold... The Arctopus), Bob Bert (Sonic Youth) and Tim Dahl (Child Abuse), have some shows coming up this month and next. They play LA this weekend, two New Zealand shows in August, and NYC's Le Poisson Rouge on August 23. Tickets for LPR are on sale now. All dates are listed below.

In related news, Nicolas Jaar will release a collection from Lydia Lunch's former band Teenage Jesus and the Jerks on his Other People label. It's called Live 1977-1979, and includes recordings from NYC's Max's Kansas City and CBGB and Toronto's Horseshoe Tavern. That follows Other People reissuing Lydia's Conspiracy of Women earlier this year.

Lydia isn't the only legendary no wave musician playing LPR in August. Three days later, Ikue Mori will be there playing a collaborative set with guitar great Marc Ribot. They'll be opening for Earth, for whom it's the first of two NYC stops on their tour. Tickets for that show are still available, and we're also giving away a pair on Facebook.

Ikue also plays Roulette on Saturday (8/1), and has a bunch of upcoming appearances at The Stone. She plays there August 10 with Bruce Ackley, Mike Lockwood and Jen Baker, and twice in September during vocal quartet Mycale's residency. That includes 9/17 with Mycale and 9/20 with Sylvie Courvoisier and Jim Black.

She then plays Jon Rose's October residency on 10/11 with Rose and John Medeski. After that, she plays 8 PM and 10 PM sets on November 18 during Zeena Parkins' residency. The early set is Ikue and Zeena, and the late set has that duo joined by Erik Friedlander and Cyro Baptista. Other artists playing Zeena's residency include Nate Wooley, White Out, Nels Cline, Okkyung Lee, and more. Full schedule here.

Lastly (for now), Ikue plays the 12/18 date of Chuck Bettis' residency with Bettis and Sylvie Courvoisier. We mentioned earlier today that Chuck's residency also includes Mick Barr, who has his own residency at the venue in August. That one includes an 8/19 show with Retrovirus member Tim Dahl.

Watch a live Retrovirus video, with their list of tour dates, below...

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

Titus Andronicus @ Shea Stadium
Titus Andronicus' ambitious new 29-song rock opera takes them through a ton of different sounds, all while keeping the aesthetic of raw garage punk band. Night 4 of their sold-out 5-night run at Shea Stadium.

Culture Club @ Beacon Theater
The original lineup of '80s icons Culture Club didn't make it over as planned last fall but are here now for their first of two nights at Beacon Theatre. Expect multiple costume changes, plus all the hits and probably a few songs from their new album, Tribes, that's due out early next year.

The English Beat @ City Winery
If you aren't too concerned that Dave Wakeling is the only original member of the band, and don't mind hearing General Public songs too (and maybe even "She's Having a Baby"), you'll probably have a good time singing along to "Save it for Later," "Mirror in the Bathroom" and "Tenderness."

U2 @ MSG
Rock and pop superstars U2 are now a little more than halfway through their eight-show run at Madison Square Garden. As you may have heard, Bono, The Edge and crew have managed to reinvent the stadium spectacle for this tour -- which is just what you'd expect from them (and these ticket prices).

Dawes, First Aid Kit, Andy Shauf @ Central Park SummerStage
For a good triple bill of folk music, Central Park is pretty much the place to be tonight. Three different nationalities will be represented, with LA's Dawes, Sweden's First Aid Kit, and Canada's Andy Shauf.

Krallice, Radiation Blackbody, Feast of the Epiphany @ Acheron
Local black metal greats Krallice appear to be teasing a new album, but while we don't have any real details on that, we do know they and their related projects remain active as a live band.

Mas Ysa, Kelsey Lu, Michael Beharie, Wish @ Baby's All Right
Once a fixture on the Brooklyn DIY scene, Mas Ysa (aka Thomas Arsenault) now lives in Upstate NY. His danceable debut album, Seraph, just came out and he celebrates tonight in his former home.

Nels Cline & Scott Amendola with the Les Paul Trio @ Iridium
There's rarely a lack of chances to catch guitar great Nels Cline in NYC. Tonight he's with The Les Paul Trio at the Iridium for two shows (8 PM and 10 PM).

Night Train w/ Aparna Nancherla @ Littlefield
Aparna Nancherla fills in for regular Night Train host Wyatt Cenac and welcomes guests Rob Cantrell, Ayanna Dookie, Guy Branum, and Robert Dean.

Alexis Krauss (via @iambrianscottk)
Sharon Jones & Davied (via @sharonjones)

Last night was the David Byrne tribute show at Carnegie Hall which brought out a host of cool musicians to perform songs by Talking Heads and other Byrne songs. This was the 11th annual tribute show at Carnegie, which are produced by City Winery's Michael Dorf and benefit NYC music education programs. The show was over two and a half hours long and ended with the man himself marching down the aisles with a marching band, covering Mark Ronson's "Uptown Funk." If you thought that Carnegie Hall might be the one place you'd never hear that song, you were wrong (video below), and it was a joyous capper to a very fun night.

The night opened with the Little Kids Rock band (one of the charities these shows fund) covering "Stay Up Late" which was appropriate for this School Night and they brought endless enthusiasm to the Little Creatures song. For such dance-friendly music as Byrne's, Carnegie Hall is maybe not the best venue (percussion/low end suffers in that room), but we all made do and there were some great performances. Esperanza Spalding took on another Little Creatures song, "Road to Nowhere," and brought some New Orleans funk and soul to the chorus; Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top gave "Houses in Motion" boogie and twang (not to mention endless cool), and he also added a mean guitar solo to Steve Earle's take on "A Million Miles Away."

Amanda Palmer w/ Alexis Krauss, Glen Hansard, Antibalas

"I didn't think about being eight months pregnant when I agreed to do this song," admitted a very showing Amanda Palmer, adding "The lyrics take on new meaning." Palmer, with help from Jherek Bischoff, took on "Once in a Lifetime" and she brought her cranked-to-11 personality and stage presence to that. She also brought Alexis Krauss of Sleigh Bells for Don't Look Back style cue-carding and Glen Hansard on backing vocals. Krauss did a fine job handing "Life During Wartime" (and talked a little about being a NYC schoolteacher) and Hansard performed a stripped down version of "Girlfriend is Better."

It wasn't until late in the show that the crowd all finally jumped to its feet, thanks to Sharon Jones who delivered a knockout performance of "Psycho Killer." The crowd stayed up for Santigold, backed by her flygirl dancers, who did "Burning Down the House." Then Cee-Lo, maybe a weird choice for this, came out for "Take Me to the River," taking out the Talking Heads jitteriness and putting back some of the smooth Al Green. (In a velvet garb, he also looked a giant Shar-Pei.) Then the marching band (which seems to be Byrne's new obsession) hit. Full performer/setlist rundown and pictures from Carnegie Hall are in this post.

The party kept going later that night at City Winery (where they had rehearsals the night before) which featured Malian band Songhoy Blues whose amazing energy definitely primed the crowd for the fun and very loose set by Antibalas who were the backing band at the tribute show. (The free wine and beer added a lot to the looseness of everyone onstage or off.) They performed a few of the songs that were done earlier in the night, including an extended version of "Crosseyed and Painless," but the highlight was an improvised number by Sharon Jones that was a little like "Land of a Thousand Dances" but in her own style, and she also battled on the congas with Antibalas frontman Amayo. As much fun as the tribute was, that will be the moment I remember from the night. A short instagram video of that, plus more pics, video and the setlist from Carnegie, below.

The upcoming Big Ears Festival happening March 27-29 in Knoxville, TN, has been expanded once again. Like in past years, the festival will include a film portion, and a selection of that has been curated by filmmaker/musician Jim Jarmusch and Michael Gira, whose respective bands SQURL and Swans were already on the lineup. Like they just did In NYC, Jarmusch's band SQURL will perform scores to Man Ray's silent films. Here's more:

SQÜRL, film director Jim Jarmusch's band with drummer Carter Logan, will perform music that they wrote for several silent films from the 1930s by the legendary surrealist Man Ray. This project was premiered in late February in New York as part of WNYC's Silent Films, Live Scores program. SQÜRL, joined by lute virtuoso Jozef Van Wissem, also performed the score for Jarmusch's most recent film, Only Lovers Left Alive.

The occult electronic duo Demdike Stare will perform their re-scoring of 1922 silent Swedish/Danish documentary / horror classic, HÄXAN, Witchcraft Through the Ages. Technically filmed as a documentary about how superstition and the misunderstanding of disease and mental illness could lead to witch hunts, its dramatized sequences push it into the realm of horror films. It was originally banned in the United States.

Rounding out the Big Ears film programs for 2015, indie director Jim Jarmusch and Swans founder and leader Michael Gira have collaborated with the Criterion Film Collection in curating a program of select films, which will be screened on Sunday at Regal Entertainment Group's downtown Riviera Cineplex. Jarmusch's program is "Three in Black and White," an international triptych featuring Satayajit Ray's The Music Room, Aki Kaurismäki's La Vie de Bohéme, and Guy Maddin's My Winnipeg. Gira has selected a single film: the cult classic Eraserhead, David Lynch's groundbreaking feature film debut.

There will be a Bill Morrison retrospective too, during which jazz guitarist Bill Frisell's quartet performing Frisell's live score to Morrison's The Great Flood (like he did at MoMA last year).

These additions join Swans, tUnE-yArDs, Silver Apples, Perfume Genius, Grouper, Ben Frost and more. Festival passes are still available.

Updated lineup below...

Blood Orange at Central Park in August (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Blood Orange

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

Julian Casablancas + The Voidz, Shabazz Palaces, Blood Orange @ Hammerstein Ballroom
Maybe Julian Casablancas has never made another record on par with the first two Strokes albums, but you gotta at least give him credit for trying something new and totally out there on his new album with The Voidz. Plus, the two openers alone would be an unmissable double bill.

Interpol, Lip Talk @ Terminal 5
On the other hand, Julian's fellow turn-of-the-millenium flag-bearers of NYC cool, Interpol, have not changed it up on their new album. But if Interpol doing what Interpol does best is what you seek, you've probably already got tickets for tonight. Night 2 of 3 and all of them are sold out.

Blonde Redhead, People Get Ready @ Bowery Ballroom
NYC indie greats Blonde Redhead have tackled dream pop, noise rock, synth pop and more in their 20+ year career, and returned this year with their ninth album, Barragán. Tonight's the first of three NYC shows on this tour, all with different openers. This one's got the eclectic People Get Ready.

Hundred Waters, Mutual Benefit (solo) @ Rough Trade
Hundred Waters are supporting Interpol's current tour, including last night's and tomorrow's Terminal 5 shows, but tonight they're taking the chance to headline their own smaller show in NYC. Opening the show is a solo set from Mutual Benefit main man Jordan Lee, whose layered art pop is pretty likeminded to Hundred Waters.

The Blind Shake, Caddywhompus, Monograms @ Cake Shop
With a new album on Castle Face that is their rawest cut of animal beat garage proto-punk yet, The Blind Shake barrel into NYC for two shows. Tonight's the first.

Nels Cline & Julian Lage @ SubCulture
Guitar great Nels Cline is best-known for playing with Wilco but is an improvisational wiz as well. Out this week is Room, his collaborative album with avant jazz guitarist, Julian Lage. The pair celebrate its release tonight.

Ex Cops, Ski Lodge, LODRO, Dinowalrus @ Glasslands
We're now basically in the last month of Glasslands' existence and this is one of the special farewell shows they've put together, full of some of Brooklyn's superior indie pop talent.

For all of tonight's shows, and tomorrow's, check out our NYC concert calendar.

Tweedy @ BAM 9/23/2014
Jeff Tweedy
Jeff Tweedy

"The first time I said 'New York,' I got a big cheer," remarked a chatty Jeff Tweedy last night (9/23) at BAM's Howard Gillman Opera House. "The second time I did it...you all felt a bit silly, didn't you? Shall we try it again?" A receptive and vocal crowd and game performer made for an enjoyable night as Jeff and son Spencer made their NYC debut as Tweedy who just released their first album. The Tweedy set came first, complete with Lucius' Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig on backing vocals, and then Jeff stayed out for a long set of songs from throughout his career, plus a lot of funny crowd interactions. For the finale, the Tweedy band came back out for a few covers and ended with "California Stars" from Wilco & Billy Bragg's Mermaid Avenue with Nels Cline coming out to join them. Pictures, setlist and BAM's archived video stream are all in this post.

Opening the night, part of BAM's Next Wave Fest and Nonesuch Records 50th Anniversary celebrations, were Brooklyn's Hospitality who were back to a trio, at least for this show. Pics from their set, and more of Tweedy, below...
