The Mystery Lights @ Seaport, 2014 (more by Chris La Putt)
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
The Mystery Lights, The Yin Yangs, Larry and The Babes @ Alphaville
Party-friendly garage rockers The Mystery Lights are a real blast live, acheiving near Oh Sees levels of energy (though less mic-eating). Their most recent album, At Home With the Mystery Lights, came out in February and is worth checking out, too. But their live show is where it's at.
Modern Vices, Bluffing, Lightning Bug @ Baby's All Right
It's nice when bands name their own genre, sometimes. Chicago's Modern Vices call what they do "dirty doo-wop" which probably has more to do with the sonics than the lyrical content. There's not a lot vocal harmonies in what they do, but there is plenty of raw emotion.
Steve Taylor & The Perfect Foil, Danielson @ Studio at Webster Hall
Cult faves Danielson are out on the road opening for veteran Christian alternative singer Steve Taylor whose new album was released on vinyl via Danielson's Sounds Familyre label.
Love as Laughter, August Wells, Lefty Bones @ Union Pool
Sam Jayne has fronted various incarnations of indie rock band Love As Laughter for 20 years, moving the band from the Pacific Northwest to Brooklyn. Recent single "LZY SLDR" finds them still in catchy top form.
Adult Mom, Understudy, Doubting Thomas Cruise Control, Radiator King @ Knitting Factory
Recent Tiny Engines signee Adult Mom makes twee-ish folk not too unlike the Moldy Peaches. Also on the bill is Boston folk singer Radiator King (who recently toured with Pile) and more.
High Pop, Quarterbacks (solo), Painted Zeros, King Clone @ Shea Stadium
Shea hosts a lineup of regulars in the local DIY/indie rock scene tonight.

Boston singer/songwriter Adam Silvestri, aka Radiator King (not to be confused with Radiator Hospital), makes the kind of folk with punk grit that Chuck Ragan does in his solo career or The Gaslight Anthem does on their more recent material. He's putting out his second album, Document Untold, on February 24, and we've got the premiere of its new single, "Hardwired." Listen below.
Radiator King will be in NYC tonight (2/5) at Sidewalk Cafe for a full-band show, and later this month he'll join his fellow Bostonians Pile on their tour, which hits NYC on February 25 at Palisades with Canada rock duo Solids and Pile's EIS labelmates Leapling. Tickets for that show are on sale now.
After their run with Radiator King, Pile basically plan to stay on the road for the foreseeable future. We previously mentioned a TBA Brooklyn show for April 28, which we now know happens at Baby's All Right with Yazan, Vulture Shit and Captain Wizard. Tickets for that one are on sale. Pile also play a Fordham show with Elvis Depressedly on Friday (2/6). All of their dates are listed below.
Pile album artwork
Pile's new album, You're Better Than This, comes out March 3 via Exploding In Sound, and so far the band have put out two songs from that. "Mr. Fish" starts off as a slower, more slack indie rocker before turning into something bigger, while "#2 Hit Single" is the Pile you know and love in full-on attack mode. Check out both below.
As for the other two bands on that Pile/Radiator King show at Palisades, Solids (who also play Cake Shop the following night) made a new video for "Off White" and Leapling are streaming their new album, Vacant Page in full (due 2/10 via EIS). Check those out below too.
In other Exploding In Sound news, Krill recently put out the seven-minute clanger "Tiger" off their upcoming album, A Distant Fist Unclenching, due 2/17 via DDW/EIS (listen below). They've also expanded their tour, and now have two upcoming NYC shows. In addition to Friday's sold-out Bowery Ballroom show with Porches, Frankie Cosmos and Sheer Mag, Krill play an LP release show on March 14 at Silent Barn with local indie rockers LVL UP and avant-popsters Cloud Becomes Your Hand. All of their dates are listed below.
There's never a lack of local LVL UP shows. You can also catch them February 20 at Aviv with Quarterbacks, Crying and Long Beard; and February 28 at Shea Stadium with Liam Betson, Slight and Doubting Thomas Cruise Control.
Nor is there ever a lack of chances to catch Cloud Becomes Your Hand (maybe you caught them last weekend). To bring things just about full circle, they play Leapling's record release show on February 13 at Shea Stadium with Palm, Cantina and Felicia Douglass. Jerry Paper is DJing.

Boston post-hardcore band Pile are releasing You're Better Than This, the followup to 2012's very good Dripping, on March 3 via Exploding In Sound. No music's been released from that yet, but in the meantime you can revisit their 2014 single, "Special Snowflakes," below. That's the clown artwork that the LP artwork is based on, above.
The band recently successfully funded their new van (though there's still 11 days left to donate if you wanna give them extra help and get some of the cool rewards), which means they're ready to hit the road for their tour which begins this weekend. The first date is in NYC on Saturday (1/10) at Shea Stadium with Krill (who also have a new LP coming on EIS), Baked and Swings ($8 at the door). Pile return to NYC on February 25 at Palisades with Canadian rockers Solids, EIS labelmates Leapling and Radiator King (ticket info TBA). After that, they play SXSW and have a lot of TBA dates, including a TBA Brooklyn show on 4/28. All dates are listed below.
For Solids, that Palisades show is part of a tour which includes another NYC show on February 26 at Cake Shop with Cutters and more TBA. All of their dates are listed below.
Leapling also play NYC sooner, opening for Landlady at Union Pool on January 21 with Heaven For Real (tickets). Their new record, Vacant Page, comes out via EIS/Inflated on February 10. You can stream "Crooked" from that LP, with that Pile track, the recent single from Krill's upcoming LP, and lists of dates, below...
'90s-loving Philly rockers The Weaks have a few upcoming shows scheduled, including one in NYC this weekend. They'll play new-ish Bushwick venue Palisades on Sunday (8/17), which is the the record release show for singer/songwriter Gregory Mendenz's Songs From A Stairwell EP, which Evan Bernard of The Weaks produced. The rest of the bill is Jenna Smith, Last Full Measure and Radiator King. There's a $5 donation at the door.
The Weaks also play The Fest, and their only other announced dates before that are opening two shows on the upcoming Joyce Manor tour. Though they won't be on the NYC show (9/15 at Bowery Ballroom), you won't have to travel too far to see that double bill. They're supporting them in Danbury, CT (tickets) and Cambridge, MA (tickets).
All dates are listed, with a stream of The Weaks' 2014 EP, The World Is A Terrible Place And I Hate Myself And I Want To Die, below...

Boston indie rockers Pile released their newest album, Dripping, last year via Exploding In Sound Records. It's an impressive collection of wandering rock tunes led by some earnest nasally-turning-throaty vocals. If you missed it, you can stream the album its entirety and watch the video for its single, "Prom Song," below.
Pile's been playing some shows in their hometown area this month, and in February they'll head out on a short Northeast tour which hits NYC on February 23 at The Lab (224 Wyckoff Ave in Brooklyn) with Fax Holiday, Radiator King, and Beat Radio. It's an all ages show and admission is $5 at the door. After those dates end, they have a much longer tour in the works with their labelmates Fat History Month, which hits NYC on April 28 at Death by Audio.
Fat History Month will release their next album via Exploding In Sound Records this spring. They haven't revealed too much info about it, but they've got two of their demos on Exploding In Sound's 2012/2013 sampler, both of which have a '90s slacker rock thing going on. You can stream those tracks below.
