High on Fire

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

Cayetana, Chumped, Thin Lips, Worriers @ Baby's All Right
BV is thrilled to present this show with four of the indie/punk bands we're especially excited about at the moment. Philly's Cayetana get better every time we see them, Chumped are probably Brooklyn's current best pop punk band, Thin Lips only just put out a debut EP but are already super tight, and Worriers' new personal-meets-political pop punk album is great.

High on Fire, Pallbearer, Lucifer, Venomous Maximus @ Irving Plaza
BV is presenting this one too, and we're just as excited. High on Fire are one of sludge metal's most dependable bands and this year's Luminiferous does nothing to change that. Pallbearer are last year's doom MVPs, Lucifer is the new band of The Oath vocalist Johanna Sadonis, and Venomous Maximus are very promising bringers of occult doom.

Van Halen @ Jones Beach
Van Halen have never been more literally-named than they are right now, with Wolfgang Van Halen joining his dad Eddie and uncle Alex in the band. Still, all eyes on frontman David Lee Roth who still puts on a helluva show (even if he can't hit the high notes anymore). This is the final of three NY-area shows.

Frankie Cosmos, Radiator Hospital, Timeshares, Palehound, Free Cake For Every Creature, Facility @ Stangl Factory (Flem Fest)
Flemington, NJ hosts a pretty cool indie rock festival this weekend and tonight's show is the best of it, ranging from the twee-ish Frankie Cosmos to the indie-pop-punk of Radiator Hospital to the twang-punk of Timeshares and more.

Andrew WK, The Movielife, Kill Your Idols, Crime In Stereo, Incendiary, A Loss For Words, Iron Chic, Giants At Large, Gates, Microwave @ Emporium (Today's Mixtape Festival
The first day of Long Island's Today's Mixtape Festival includes a ton of great melodic hardcore (The Movielife, Kill Your Idols, Crime In Stereo, Incendiary), an afterparty with the king of partying Andrew WK, and more.

Ricky Eat Acid, Foxes in Fiction, Emily Reo, Eartheater @ Riis Park Beach Bazaar
Summer is winding down but you've still got time to make it to the beach. So why not take in some bands, games and good eats while you're at it? Today's free lineup of music includes electronic musician Ricky Eat Acid and the gentle Foxes in Fiction.

Soupcans, Chat Logs, Ghetto Ghouls, IYEZ, Nine of Swords @ Shea Stadium
Bring the noise with this lineup of skronk-heavy postpunk and punk, featuring Toronto's Soupcans and Austin's abrasive treblemakers Ghetto Ghouls.

Excepter, Zaimph, Image Man, Silk Purse, Cyanide Tooth, Rhyton, Kyle Eyre Clyd, Matthew Mullane, Abigail Hobbs, Sarah Louise @ Trans-Pecos
Excepter, who are one of Trans-Pecos' current curators, has put together this marathon called "A Dog Day's Journey Into Night Festival." Music starts at 2PM and will be continuous till 4 AM.

Juan Wauters, Ice Balloons, Tall Juan @ Union Pool
There are few ways more chill (and fun) to spend Saturday in the warm month than at Union Pool's free Summer Thunder series. Today's a good one, with two Juans for the price of one, plus weirdo noisemakers Ice Balloons in between. Starts at 2 PM.

Nick Hook, Veronica Vasicka, Vessel, Ninos Du Brasil, Cut Hands, French Fries b2b Bambounou @ MoMA PS1 (Warm Up)
Sadly, headliner Untold had to drop off this due to "scheduling issues," but there's still a lot of cool stuff like the Tri Angle-signed Vessel, percussive duo Ninos Du Brasil, industrial/noise musician Cut Hands and more.

Cut Hands, Container, Ligature @ Palisades
After Warm Up, Cut Hands keeps the party going at Palisades with two great noisy openers.

American Sharks, Tournament, Hundred Visions, Mammal @ Saint Vitus
This bill brings stoner rockers American Sharks together with scuzzy punks Tournament and garage rockers Hundred Visions.

Title Fight, Basement, Alex G, Adventures @ Starland Ballroom
Basement and Adventures' tour hits NYC next week, but tonight it's nearby and this one is especially cool because it has the great post-hardcore-turned-shoegazers Title Fight and lo-fi indie rocker Alex G.

Moon Boots, Garrett David, Kenny Dope @ Verboten
Moon Boots has been keeping the pop-house revival strong on his steady stream of singles, including the most recent "Utopia" that came out this week. Tonight he plays with New York house vet Kenny Dope and Chicago's Garrett David.

Hard Left, Bombflower, Voice of Doom, Anticitizen @ ABC No Rio (matinee)
Hard Left is Mike Schulman from Black Tambourine / Manatee / Slumberland Records' change to make late '70s UK-style punk. Today's the second NYC show of this tour.

PWR BTTM, Adult Mom, The Jeffrey Lewis & Peter Stampfel Band, Izzy True @ Aviv
It's the release party for the first issue of Hazel Newlevant's new comic book series, No Ivy League, and there's a pretty cool lineup of bands. Self-described "genre-queer" band PWR BTTM, the anti-folk-inspired Adult Mom, Jeffrey Lewis' band with folk legend Peter Stampfel, and Don Giovanni-signed singer/songwriter Izzy True.

John Hiatt, Steve Moakler @ City Winery
Having made records that range from new wave to country over the last 40 years, John Hiatt is a consummate songwriter, and one hell of a singer and guitarist too.

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

Sidekicks
Sidekicks

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

The Sidekicks, Cayetana, All Dogs, Roger Harvey @ Baby's All Right
Columbus, Ohio's The Sidekicks just dropped their fourth album and first for Epitaph, Runners in the Nerved World, which finds the once-punk band moving into Shins/Band of Horses territory. They excel at both sounds, and BV is proud to present tonight's record release show which also includes two indie punk bands -- Cayetana and All Dogs -- and somber songwriter Roger Harvey.

Sylvan Esso, Mr. Twin Sister @ Terminal 5
Sylvan Esso blew right up in 2014, skipping straight from Bowery Ballroom to a sold-out show at Terminal 5. Their appealing debut album and charming stage presence of singer Amelia Meath have a lot to do with it. If you're going, get there early for Mr Twin Sister who fit right in with SE's inviting, danceable sound.

Bottoms, DJ Samson (DJ), Ryan Smith (DJ) @ Secret Project Robot
Brooklyn trio Bottoms make bass-heavy, slightly gothy techno/electro dance music, as heard on their debut EP which is out this week. Tonight's the release show it with MEN's DJ Samson on DJ duties.

Sufjan Stevens' 'Round-Up' w/ Yarn/Wire @ BAM
While Sufjan will release his first studio album since 2010 this March, ahead of that he's premiering a new piece called Round-Up at BAM which continues tonight and runs through Sunday (1/25). Sufjan will be on electronics and new-music ensemble Yarn/Wire is on piano and percussion.

Foxing, Slingshot Dakota, Everyone Everywhere, What Moon Things, The Sea Life @ Brooklyn Night Bazaar
This is a pretty great bill (and for free) with the emotionally raw Foxing, hard-hitting indie pop duo Slingshot Dakota, '90s-emo devotees Everyone Everwhere, post-punks What Moon Things, and indie rockers The Sea Life.

Ricky Eat Acid, Skylar Spence (fka Saint Pepsi), Foxes in Fiction, Fissures @ Palisades
DIY electronic musician just signed to an imprint of Atlantic and dropped a new single that's significantly more fully formed than any of his previous work. Catch him tonight with old pal Foxes In Fiction and more at Palisades.

Profligate, P.O.I., Jahiliyyah Fields, Nick Klein @ Palisades
Hang around Palisades late-night after the Ricky Eat Acid show for a bill of noisy/bleak electronic music.

Mister Lies, Pregnant, Nicholas Nicholas, Warm Tape, Godmode (DJ) @ Silent Barn
Silent Barn's got a good bill all around of post-chillwave electronic pop songwriters tonight. Maybe you caught Nicholas Nicholas' other band Phantom Posse (iLoveMakonnen included) at the same venue earlier this week.

Teengirl Fantasy DJs, J Slusher, Rhyton, Dinowalrus, Low Nox (John Atkinson of Aa), Excepter DJs @ Trans Pecos
Trans-Pecos hosts this multi-genre show tonight, spanning sounds from the psychedelia of Rhyton to the ambience of Aa member John Atkinson, to whatever Teengirl Fantasy decides to drop on us.

Set and Setting, Blackout, A Film in Color @ Acheron
While Set and Setting come from a metal scene, they make the kind of beautiful post-rock that soars more than it crushes. They put out an excellent LP on Prosthetic Records last year, and it sounds like the kind of thing that could be really overwhelming (in a good way) live.

Couch Slut, Tile, Microwaves, Chain Gang Grave @ Saint Vitus
NYC's Couch Slut make an unrelenting mix of metal, hardcore and noise rock, and they haven't become regulars on the local heavy scene for nothing.

Lia Ices, Seoul, White Prism @ Rough Trade
Lia Ices changed her sound up on last year's Ices, when she chose to work with unlikely collaborator Clams Casino. Check out her new style live tonight. If you're going, Montreal band Seoul make airy, '80s-inspired soft pop and are worth showing up early to catch.

Concreatures, Adult Dude, Brett Saxon @ Union Hall
NYC shoegazey-90s-alt-rock indie band Concreatures celebrate their new LP at this year, and the Dino Jr/Superchunk-y Adult Dude are always a good local band to catch as well.

Dragons of Zynth, Saul Williams, Tamar-Kali, Garland Jeffreys @ Highline Ballroom
This is The Black Rock Coalition's "Million Man Mosh 3," with a wide variety of acts playing including four-decade career vet Garland Jeffreys, poet/singer Saul Williams, singer Tamar-kali, and indie rockers Dragons of Zynth.

Shilpa Ray, Not Blood Paint, Tall Juan, Vagabon, Bethlehem Steel, Ovlov, and more tba! @ Shea Stadium
Punk blues singer Shilpa Ray headlines this benefit for the familes of Michael Brown and Eric Garner, which also features a solo set from sludgy rockers Ovlov and more.

Amanda Jo Williams, Batfog @ Sugarcube
If you're looking for something different to do after work, head to the Seaport where you can hang and see bands at inflatable venue Sugarcube. It's free and goes from 8 - 10 PM. Tonight's entertainment includes electronic leaning ensemble Batfog.

Tonight's Smoke DZA show at The Wick appears to be cancelled but his show Sunday at The Studio at Webster Hall is still happening.

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

Rhyton

Rhyton returned this week with their newest album, Kykeon, on Thrill Jockey. Made up of three great players in the Brooklyn experimental scene -- David Shuford (aka D. Charles Speer and of No Neck Blues Band), Rob Smith (of Pigeons) and Jimy SeiTang (ex-Psychic Ills) -- Rhyton are well equipped to take on ideas as ambitious as the ones on Kykeon. Of its six songs, four pass the seven-minute mark and only one is under four, and they're all instrumental passages through Middle Eastern melodies and psychedelic rock. In terms of other modern stuff, Grails comes to mind as a comparison, and fans of that band would likely dig this. But really any fans of tripped-out extended jams should check this out. You can listen to the whole thing on Spotify and stream one track below.

At the moment, Rhyton have four shows scheduled including one in Hudson, NY tonight (11/21) and two upcoming dates in their hometown of NYC. The first is this Sunday (11/23) at Trans-Pecos with Fadensonnen (with special guests Chris Pitsiokos, Jim Sauter, Kevin Shea and Brian Sullivan) and Key of Shame (also No Neck-related). Tickets for that show are on sale now.

Their next local show happens December 10 at Union Pool with two other local psych bands, Weird Owl and Prince Rupert's Drops (tix at door).

All dates are listed, with that song stream, below...

Liars at Warm Up in 2013 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Liars

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

Liars, Jana Hunter @ LPR
With their industrial/EBM-influenced new album, Mess, Liars deliver their most accessible, danceable batch of tunes in ages. With Pit Er Pat's Butchy Fuego currently on drums, Liars are a real force. Their first of two NYC shows this week.

Chester Endersby Gwazda, Ludwig Persik, Leapling, Railings @ Death by Audio
As a producer/mixer Chester Endersby Gwazda has worked on records by Future Islands, Dan Deacon and Cloud Nothings. His own music is eclectic laptop pop and you can stream is 2012 release, Shroud, below.

Little Barrie, Born Cages, If But When @ Santos Party House
Groovy, psych-leaning UK trio Little Barrie worked with producer Edwyn Collins on their new album, Shadow, which is has a nice crunchy, retro vibe. They're fun live.

Mystic Braves @ Baby's All Right
Los Angeles's Mystic Braves look like they've been transported from 1966 and that's pretty much what they sound like too: 12-sting guitars, surfy leads, combo organ, the occasional flourish of spanish horns. Tonight's show is free, doors at midnight.

Bombay Bicycle Club, Royal Canoe @ Webster Hall
UK indie pop band Bombay Bicycle Club put out their fourth album this year, So Long, See You Tomorrow, which is both different from all three of their other albums and a lot stronger than it seemed like BBC's fourth album would be when they debuted as a post-Arctic Monkeys/Strokes band in '09. Tonight's their first of two sold out Webster Hall shows.

Marnie Stern, Hunters, Glockabelle @ The Wick
Marnie Stern's math rock guitar heroics and funny stage banter make all of her shows a sight to see, and the strength of the actual songs always back up her tricks. Hunters should be a good primer for her set.

Shlohmo, Jim-e Stack, D33J @ Bowery Ballroom
Shlohmo had already been making killer electronic music, but ever since he began collaborationg with R&B singers (Jeremih, How to Dress Well, Banks), it seems his career has deservedly been given a boost. Tonight's his second of two NYC shows this week.

Joseph Arthur (the songs of Lou Reed) @ City Winery
Singing/songwriting vet Joseph Arthur has been very active with his original material lately, but he's now taking a break from that to honor one of his friends and influences, the late Lou Reed. He'll release a tribute album of Lou's songs next week (5/13) and he's now playing them on tour, including tonight's NYC show.

Peaking Lights, Protect-U, Imperial Topaz @ Glasslands
Peaking Lights make psychedelic pop that earns that title for being actually trippy, not just for paying tribute to the late '60s. Tonight's show is a good bill all around with their past collaborators Protect-U and local ambient pop duo Imperial Topaz.

Sylvan Esso @ BV SXSW 2014 (more by Tim Griffin)
IMAGE

Sylvan Esso, Mother, Elizabeth Rose @ The Westway
Sylvan Esso's singer Amelia Randall Meath and beatmaker Nicholas Sanborn have palpable onstage chemistry, making this duo a lot of fun to watch. Their debut album is out next week and this show is one of the official Governors Ball pre-parties.

The Body, Whitehorse, Gnaw, Theologian @ Saint Vitus
It's gonna get weird and heavy at Vitus tonight with Australian sludge/noise unit Whitehorse, likeminded Americans The Body, and compelling local support from Gnaw and Theologian.

Okkyung Lee, Theo Bleckmann, Marina Rosenfeld @ The Stone
NYC noise cellist continues her Stone residency tonight with Kate Bush coverer Theo Bleckman on voice/electronics for the 8 PM set and avant-garde composer Marina Rosenfeld on turntable for the 10 PM set.

Rhyton, Plankton Wat, Sugarm, Moodswan (mems Woodsman) @ Trans Pecos
Good night for experimental music at Trans Pecos with the spacey psychedelia of Rhyton, their Thrill Jockey labelmate Planktown Wat, the noise/drone of Sugarm, and Woodsman side project Moodswan.

Pharoahe Monch @ Littlefield
Organized Konfusion member Pharoahe Monch recently celebrated his fourth solo album, PTSD, with a release show at SOB's, and tonight the NYC rapper gives his hometown another chance to catch him in the flesh.

The Felice Brothers, MiWi La Lupa @ Mercury Lounge
The folk rockin' Felice Brothers have a new album coming out this June, but maybe we'll get to hear some of it at tonight's Mercury Lounge show. It's sold out, but they'll be back in NYC for a much larger, not sold-out show at Webster Hall in July.

Champagne Jerry @ Joe's Pub
Yet another show in the monthly album rollout series for rapper/Ad-Rock collaborator Champagne Jerry.

Balancer, Tigue @ WITHOUT Fest at Frieze Art Fair
Currated by the fine folks at Tom Tom Magazine , the WITHOUT festival is run in tandem with the Frieze Art Fair on Randall's Island. Today's the first of four and happens outside the festival gates and is free.

Balkan Beat Box, DJ Joro Boro @ Brooklyn Bridge Park (FREE)
This is one of Celebrate Brooklyn's free dance parties at Brooklyn Bridge Park's Pier 1, and in addition to music includes dance lessons, free valet bike parking, food trucks, and more.

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

MBV
Morbid Angel at BB King's in 2012 (more by Jonathan McPhail)
Morbid Angel

Browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows. Here are some highlights...

My Bloody Valentine, DIIV @ Hammerstein Ballroom
The shoegaze legends play the final show on their 2013 world tour tonight, their second of two NYC shows, to remind people how it's done. Expect most of the "hits," and intense light show and a medium-length (but still crushingly loud) "You Made Me Realize." Tickets are still available.

Elvis Costello @ The Capitol Theatre
Power pop pioneer/all-around great songwriter Elvis Costello is fresh off a collaborative album and show with The Roots, but this month he's back to the solo format for a tour that hits The Capitol Theatre twice this week. This is night 2.

Hippy, Kissing Is A Crime, The Teen Age, Bluffing @ Cameo Gallery
It's an all-Brooklyn indie pop lineup with four quality bands. Check out a track from Bluffing below.

Night Beats, Golden Animals @ Mercury Lounge
If you like garage psych rock with a little swagger to it, Seattle trio Night Beats do it better than most. Their new album, Sonic Bloom (out on Austin Psych Fest label Reverberation Appreciation Society), is a good listen. Tonight's show was supposed to be with RAS labemates Golden Animals but they had to cancel, so The Mystery Lights are playing instead.

Dave Davies @ City Winery
Ray's brother, Kinks guitarist, fuzz-tone pioneer, and writer of some good songs in his own right, this lesser-known Davies is back at City Winery and tickets are still available.

John Fogerty @ Beacon Theatre
Rock legend John Fogerty has over four decades of music, including countless swamp rock classics penned during his time in Creedence Clearwater Revival like "Fortunate Son," "Bad Moon Rising," "Have You Ever Seen the Rain?" and tons more that you'll likely hear tonight, his first of three Beacon Theatre shows this week.

Morbid Angel, Jotunheim, Vadimvon, Winter Nights @ Irving Plaza
Morbid Angel are playing their death metal classic Covenant in full on this tour. Covenant is one of the only death metal albums to ever see a major label release, and it's arguably the finest specimen the genre has to offer. Worth overlooking Morbid Angel's recent missteps to catch.

The Slow Death, GSD, Hot Shot @ Coco66
Pretty Boy Thorson (real name Jesse Thorson) spent the '00s making country punk with his band The Falling Angels, and now he's fronting The Slow Death, who drop the "country" but keep the "songwriter punk" element, resulting in raw, anthemic jams. The Minneapolis band are currently on a US tour, which hits NYC tonight. And like a zillion other good punk bands, Mikey Erg is on drums. Stream their recently released album, No Heaven, below.

Ken South Rock, Beasty, Vomitface @ Union Pool
Brooklyn/Tokyo rockers opened for Peelander-Z on Halloween, and they sound like a band who would appeal to Peelander fans for more reasons than a shared home country. Check out a video below.

Rhyton, Ancient Ocean, Mako Sica, Colomboid @ Death By Audio
The Thrill Jockey-signed Rhyton make a kind of spacey psychedelia that should appeal to people who dig non-Phish-style jam bands.

Deptford Goth, Solar Year @ Mercury Lounge
Love James Blake and The xx but don't like seeing them in cavernous rooms? You might want to try Deptford Goth, who makes similarly soulful downtempo electro. Tonight's the UK musician's first-ever North American show.

Dylan Fest @ Bowery Ballroom
The annual Dylan Fest returns for its second of two nights at Bowery Ballroom tonight. The show will feature Bob Dylan classics performed by a number of musicians, including members of Black Keys, The Hold Steady, Heartless Bastards, The Mooney Suzuki, and more.

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

Matmos
Matmos

Yesterday, we mentioned that Thrill Jockey Records will be celebrating their 20th anniversary this year, and in honor of it are hosting a show at Webster Hall on September 15 with Tortoise, Future Islands, Matmos, Liturgy. and D. Charles Speer. That show is actually just one in a series of 20th anniversary shows the label are putting on around the country, including a much smaller one in NYC at Death by Audio on September 14 with White Hills, Guardian Alien, Man Forever (who also plays DbA on Friday, 7/20), Dan Friel, and Rhyton. Tickets for the Death by Audio show and the Webster Hall show are on sale now.

In addition to the shows, the label will also celebrate their anniversary with newly commissioned silk screened posters, like this one and this one, and 2-minute video shorts, like the one by Ashby Lee Collinson that you can watch below. They've also asked a number of comedians, including Fred Armisen, to write two jokes (one clean and one dirty) and Thrill Jockey will be recording reactions to the jokes and pressing them on limited edition vinyl.

In related news, experimental duo Matmos (aka M.C. Schmidt and Drew Daniel), who are playing some of the anniversary shows including the Webster Hall one, have just recently signed to Thrill Jockey, and they'll put out their first release for the label, the Ganzfeld EP, on October 15.

All currently known Thrill Jockey 20th anniversary shows (more TBA) are listed below with lineups...

Spy Music Festival

The second-annual Spy Music Festival happens June 29th through July 15th, featuring "46 sets of music at 7 venues in Manhattan and Brooklyn."

This year's fest, run by the folks at Northern Spy Records, will happen at Union Pool, the Issue Project Room, The Stone, Vaudeville Park, 285 Kent, Death by Audio and Roulette. Amongst the artists performing are Rhys Chatham, Matthew Shipp, Dustin Wong, Arthur Doyle, Eugene Chadbourne, PG Six, Guardian Alien and Magik Markers.

The full Spy Music Festival schedule -- bands, venues, prices -- is below. There's no all-inclusive festival pass, but tickets to all the shows are available here. And the fest organizers have also made a sampler featuring the artists performing this year and you can stream that below as well.

Frankie Rose

In addition to the Jens Lekman/Of Montreal show at Williamsburg Park, the Northside Festival (June 14 - 17) just announced a slew of confirmed artists who'll be playing this year, including Future of the Left, the U.S. debut of Iceage-spinoff Vår (formerly War), Frankie Rose (playing the BrooklynVegan showcase at Music Hall of Williamsburg with more TBA), Grass Widow, Cleveland's Gap Dream, Wymond Miles of the Fresh & Onlys,  Chain & the Gang, Kool Keith and more.

Rhyton

Rhyton, featuring Dave Shuford (No Neck Blues Band, D. Charles Speer), Jimy SeiTang (Psychic Ills), and Spencer Herbst (Messages, Matta Llama), specialize in space-y psychedelia that tips its hat to greats of the genre including Krautrock titans like Can. The largely-improvisational troupe is currently prepping to release their new self-titled LP on January 24th via Thrill Jockey and will celebrate said release with a show on January 26th at Shea Stadium alongside special guests Electroputas, 1129, and Woodsman. $8 gets you into the 9PM show.

The band will also play a second area show a little more than a week later at Maxwell's on February 6th supporting Thurston Moore. Tickets are still available.

Thurston Moore has a few shows coming up including an acoustic set at Lincoln Center and one tomorrow (1/13) at Rockwood as part of the NY Guitar Festival (win two tickets at our Facebook page).

What better way to explore the far reaches of the human psyche with Rhyton than with a video? Check out "Stone Colored" by Rhyton, which makes its first appearance, below...
