Edward Sharpe at The Surf Lodge this past weekend (via Thatcher Shultz)
Like in past years, the Montauk restaurant/hotel/vacation spot The Surf Lodge is once again hosting a free concert series. The series kicked off this past weekend with Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros and others, and there's several weekend shows through the summer including Yeasayer (6/1), TEEN (6/7), Courtney Barnett (6/15), Poolside (6/21), Real Estate (6/22), San Fermin (7/12), Gary Clark Jr. (7/13), Ryan Hemsworth (7/26), Temples (8/9), Delorean (8/17), Sky Ferreira (8/24), and more.
Again, all shows are free and they make for a pretty good reason to get away to Montauk for the weekend. See what else The Surf Lodge has to offer. Full 2014 concert schedule below...

Motörhead / Chance the Rapper / Little Dragon / Toy Dolls
However, Sunday's lineup thankfully featured some guitar-brandishing acts, besides Motörhead, who proved that rock is not dead at Coachella -- or in general. For instance, British punk veterans the Toy Dolls pulled a respectable crowd to the Mojave Tent (opposite the very different Calvin Harris's set) and kept a proper counter-clockwise, Doc-Martens-kicking-up-dust slam pit going at full churn throughout their high-energy performance. "Do you think I'm getting too old for this?" spiky-haired frontman Michael "Olga" Algar asked the crowd. It was likely a rhetorical question, but fans ceased their slam-dancing just long enough to shout back, "Noooooo!" - [Yahoo! Music]The first weekend of Coachella 2014 wrapped up Sunday night (4/13) with dance music and Arcade Fire, but there was lots of other stuff going on too. Motörhead, with Lemmy back in action after some health issues, was there to show them how it's done and brought out Slash for a few songs; punk pranksters Toy Dolls and indie rock vets Superchunk both played a high energy set that would tire bands 20 years their junior; and Chicago's Chance the Rapper brought out, um, Justin Beiber.
There were also Swedish pop charmers Little Dragon, Australia's very talented Courtney Barnett, photoshy North Carolinians Neutral Milk Hotel, industrial-techno outfit Factory Floor, and lots lots more. Pictures from Coachella weekend 1, day 3 are in this post.

You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Mac DeMarco @ Other Music
Get a sneak peak at Mac's new album, Salad Days, at this
free acoustic in-store ahead of his two proper headlining shows. UPDATE: To attend, you had to pre-order the album through Other Music, and the venue is now at capacity.
The World is a Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid to Die, The Hotelier, Crying, Told Slant @ Suburbia
Brooklyn DIY spot Suburbia hosts an excellent double dose of emo tonight with multi-layered Connecticut collective TWIABP and Worcester, MA's emo/pop punk/post-hardcore blenders THe Hotelier. Local support comes from chiptune band Crying and bedroom indie rockers Told Slant. Suburbia is pretty tiny, so this is sure to be a pretty wild show.
Peach Kelli Pop, The Mystery Lights, Scully @ Don Pedro
Peach Kelli Pop (aka White Wires drummer Allie Hanlon's other band) make sugary bubblegum garage confections like on the band's new single. This is their second of two NYC shows.
North Highlands, Ablebody, Bennio Qwerty, Cowboy @ Glasslands
North Highlands are going their separate ways -- singer Brenda Malvani is leaving NYC -- but on good terms, playing one last show together. We'll miss ya, NH!
Typhoon, Lady Lamb The Beekeeper, Wild Ones @ Webster Hall
This is a pretty good triple bill with art pop ensemble Typhoon, the folky Lady Lamb the Beekeeper, and Typhoon's Portland neighbors Wild Ones.
Tiger & Woods, Poolside (DJ Set), DJ Spun @ Output
Electronic duo Tiger & Woods return to NYC for Output's weekly INPUT party, and dancey duo Poolside are on the bill DJing as well.
Allah-Las, Spires, The Black Hollies @ Rough Trade
Los Angeles band Allah-Las look and sound like they're from 1966, making sweet 12-string jangly pop. This is a rescheduled show from December and a one-off for the band.
Rakim @ SOB's
Rakim still plays his hometown a good amount, and tonight's another good opportunity to catch the legendary rapper.
JD Samson & MEN @ The Jewish Museum
The Jewish Museum's Wind Up series continues tonight with a live set from ex-Le Tigre member JD Samson's band MEN. There will also be "interactive art making activities, tours of the new exhibition Other Primary Structures, and an open bar with beer and wine."
Svper, Arm Candy, Blizzard Babies @ Silent Barn
Barcelona duo SVPER make motorik synthpop that sounds a bit like Broadcast's Trish Keenan fronting "Electricity"-era Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark.
The So So Glos, Heeney, Pictureplane DJ set, Tony Quattro DJ set, Nick Gazin DJ set @ The Flat
Mishka is celebrating the 5-year anniversary of its flagship store (350 Broadway in Brooklyn) tonight with an in-store reception from 7 to 10 PM, and after that there's an afterparty at The Flat with local rock bands The So So Glos and Heeney, plus numerous DJs.

NYC electronic musician Hiro Kone celebrates his new album tonight at Baby's All Right with support from ex-Gang Gang Dance member Dutch E Germ and others.
The xx @ Park Avenue Armory
The xx continue their run of 25 shows at the Park Avenue Armory which run through March 29. Each show is extremely intimate (holds 40 people) and very sold out.
Joe Mande, Wyatt Cenac, Max Silvestri @ The Bell House
The very funny Joe Mande left NYC to live in LA a few years ago, but tonight he'll be back on his #BITCHFACE tour, and solid support comes from current NYC residents Wyatt Cenac and Max Silvestri.
For all of tonight's shows, and tomorrow's, check out our NYC concert calendar.

Slayer/Glass Candy/Polyphonic Spree/Slayer surfer @ FFF Fest 2013
Closing Fun Fun Fun Fest, Slayer treated Austin to greatest hits and then some: "Raining Blood," "South of Heaven," "Dead Skin Mask," "Seasons in the Abyss," etc. They also dug out the aforementioned "Die by the Sword," a high point off their 1983 debut LP, Show No Mercy.The eighth Fun Fun Fun Fest happened last weekend (11/8 - 11/10) at Austin's Auditorium Shores, hosting three days of music and fun (fun fun), with such acts as MIA, Deerhunter, Slayer, Television, Thee Oh Sees, Kurt Vile, Cut Copy. Johnny Marr, The Walkmen, Jurassic 5, Killer Mike and loads more. Many of them played again as part of the FFF Nites shows, including shows presented by BrooklynVegan and Invisible Oranges.
After fooling no one with a false ending of "South of Heaven," the third backdrop of the night unfurled at the back of the stage: a parody of the Heineken logo reading "Hanneman" and bearing his life dates. The top read "Angel of Death." Reign in Blood's terrifying opening track - and closing number on Auditorium Shores - now serves as an epitaph for Slayer's fallen co-founder. - [Austin Chronicle]
We were there in the thick of it and, as mentioned above, you can check out pics from Day 1 HERE and HERE, pics from Day 2 pics HERE and HERE; and pics from Day 3 are HERE and HERE. See you again in 2014 Austin.

Atoms for Peace / Disclosure / fans
Giraffage kicked things off at noon during Saturday's stretch of the festival after an introduction from Noise Pop/Salty Artist Management's Chad Heimann aka Chad Salty, performing sample-driven dance music for the early crowd. Giraffage's two-girl "skate squad" roller skated around the stage, waving an American flag as Charlie dropped the bass-heavy banger "Money", leading into his remix of "Party in the USA".While CMJ was going down in NYC, across the country in San Francisco, the annual two-day Treasure Island Music Festival (10/19-20) returned. The first day had a mostly electronic-oriented lineup, featuring sets from Atoms for Peace, Major Lazer, Little Dragon, Phantogram, Disclosure, Danny Brown and more. Pictures from that day are in this post, and a set of day 2 pics is on the way.
Antwon cranked up the bass on the Tunnel Stage with local producer Nanosaur and rapper Sad Andy backing his punk-inspired rap songs. The Nature Boy gang performed fan favorites such as "Dark Denim", "Helicopter", and "Living Every Dream". Sad Andy did not perform "Ferragamo", despite audience requests. However, Antwon did stop the beats to lead the crowd in a singalong of "I Want It That Way" by the Backstreet Boys.
Holy Ghost! performed a fun set of colorful dance rock, followed by Little Dragon on the Bridge Stage. Phantogram drew an impressive crowd to Saturday's final set on the Tunnel Stage, with the duo debuting danceable new material despite a few harsh feedback issues. Fireworks went off across the bay as the band performed. Atoms For Peace closed out the evening with a hooded Flea, and Thom Yorke singing tracks from AMOK while busting out his unique dance moves. [The Bay Bridged]
For Little Dragon, it was part of their tour which hits NYC tonight (10/23) at Bowery Ballroom and Thursday (10/24) at MHOW for sold-out shows with SZA.

MGMT / Beach House / giant cat
Before My Bloody Valentine performed, screens on the sides of the stage encouraged fans to pick up complimentary pairs of earplugs. It was not an idle warning: My Bloody Valentine was the loudest band I heard perform at the main stage all weekend, though a friend insists that The Melvins were louder.LA's two-day FYF Fest wrapped up on Sunday (8/25) with one of the few US appearances of 2013 from shoegaze legends My Bloody Valentine (who unfortunately didn't allow photographers), the continuously more psychedelic MGMT, and a mix of metal (Baroness, The Melvins), hardcore (Touche Amore), dream pop (Beach House, Washed Out), garage rock (The Orwells, Mikal Cronin) and more. In this post, we've got shots of MGMT, Beach House, Baroness, and Washed Out, plus Solange, Kurt Vile, Yo La Tengo, Chelsea Wolfe (who is currently streaming her new album), and more.
Shortly after the band's eagerly awaited m b v was released this year, I recall reading that after blowing out a few amps and multiple bouts of tinnitus, My Bloody Valentine was never quite able to fully re-create the Loveless tones in concert. Most of last night's songs sounded a little different, notably "Only Shallow," but the variances in guitar tones kept things interesting. Bilinda Butcher's voice still sounds the same and Kevin Shields still creates the swirling guitar sounds by using countless effects pedals.
The band performed quite a few Loveless tracks, with "When You Sleep" being an early stand out track. m b v's "New You" followed, once again showing off the band's digital effect skills. Even though m b v was released over two decades after Loveless, the band's old and new material meshed together seamlessly. [Phoenix New Times]

Soho we already told you about; plus Icona Pop and Maria Minerva at Urban Outfitters; Matchbox Twenty (!?!) at Bloomingdales; Haim at Topshop; La Sera at Helmut Lang; We Were Promised Jetpacks at Rockefeller Center; and Cyndi Lauper at Manolo Blahnik, just to name a few.

Many have free food and booze as well. For more into visit the Fashion's Night Out website. Let us know what we missed, in the comments.

The three-night Brooklyn Night Bazaar kicked off last night in its warehouse location on Kent between North 5th & 6th. Entrance to the food and shopping and portapotties is free, but you'll need to pay to see the music in the big back room. Tonight that means spending $10 to see 5 bands including Dom and Fucked Up (tickets will be available at the door). Last night was a DFA-curated lineup that had headliner James Murphy DJing to a sizeable amount of people until well past midnight. Pictures from the whole evening, lots of the vendors included, below...

DOM @ Pier 54 (more by Chris La Putt)
Last week when we announced the 12/16 BrooklynVegan Presents holiday show with Fucked Up at Brooklyn Night Bazaar there was still one band TBD. Well it turns out here that the "D" in TBD stood for Dom. Yep, we're pleased to announce the poppy Worcester, Mass quintet round our our five band line-up. You can stream the entirety of Dom's still fresh Family of Love EP at the bottom of this post.
So let's recap. Here's what you're getting for your very reasonably-priced $10 ticket: Fucked Up, Dom, Big Troubles, Caged Animals and Radical Dads, plus Frankie Rose (and myself) spinning tunes. Brooklyn Night Bazaar is a three-day holiday shopping, eating, drinking and music extravaganza all under one roof, just a few blocks from the Bedford L stop (specifically 149 Kent Ave at N.5th St.). It's free to get in the shopping area; getting into the shows is extra.
In addition to our night, on Thursday, December 15 it's a headlining DJ set from James Murphy, plus the Crystal Ark Party Machine, Poolside (who were recently added too) and Midnight Magic; on Saturday, December 17 it's The Hold Steady plus Titus Andronicus, Wakey Wakey and W/O.
