Health at Levitation 2015

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

HEALTH, Pictureplane, Very Much (DJ Set) @ Le Poisson Rouge
HEALTH tone down the noise a bit (but not completely) on their terrific new album Death Magic, which is the catchiest thing they've done yet. They didn't "go pop" though; it's still very weird. Pictureplane is a great fit to open the show.

Thor:"I Am Thor" Documentary Screening and Performance @ Saint Vitus
"Jon Mikl Thor was a bodybuilding, steel bending, brick smashing rock star in the 70's & 80's whose theatrical band THOR hit the scene alongside Metallica and Kiss, but never achieved the gold record status of its contemporaries." The new documentary on him screens at Vitus tonight.

Flamin' Groovies, Nude Beach, Miriam @ Baby's All Right
Powerpop legends Flamin' Groovies are back with guitarist Chris Wilson and a barrelful of good time, hook-filled classics. Next year's their 50th anniversary with a new album on the way. They're well-matched with Nude Beach.

Okkervil River (performing Black Sheep Boy) @ Bowery Ballroom
Okkervil River's acclaimed album Black Sheep Boy turns 10 this year and the band are celebrating with a tour where they're playing it live in full. This is the second of three nights at Bowery Ballroom. Sold out.

Jim Tews "Felines of New York" Book Release @ Littlefield
Jim Tews new photo book Felines of New York exposes the "furry underbelly of New York City's most glamorous, self-important residents." This release show will feature cat-related comedy from Todd Hanson (founder of The Onion), Maeve Higgins, Mike Polk, Doogie Horner, Mrs. Smith, Team Submarine, and Dr. Brett Levitzke,

Pill, Courtship Ritual, Winkie, The Naked Heroes, Plaque @ Palisades
Newly signed to Mexican Summer, Brooklyn's skronky, sax-fueled post punks Pill are always fun live. The headline this dark-tinged bill that also features the slinky Courtship Ritual and the decidedly goth Winkie.

Future Punx, Way Out, Suicide Slide, Jason Bartell (of Fang Island) @ Union Pool
Future Punx released their terrific debut album, This is Post Wave, which is part concept album and part manifesto. All to a danceable, very new wave beat.

This American Life Presents: 12 Days of Christmas The Improv Show @ Bell House
Ira Glass and the TAL folks have put together an impressive lineup of talent for this holiday themed improv show, featuring with Mike Birbiglia, Chris Gethard, Tami Sagher, Aidy Bryant, Scott Adsit, and Sasheer Zamata. Unsurprisingly this is sold out.

H2O, Angel Du$t, Give @ Santos
New York punks H2O celebrated their 20th anniversary this year and released the new album Use Your Voice, which... certainly sounds like H2O. That's not a bad thing though, they're good at what they do.

Frankie Cosmos, All Dogs, Eskimeaux, Florist @ Webster Hall - Marlin Room
Frankie Cosmos' twee-ish sound gets a bit more danceable on her new EP, which she celebrates tonight. Good openers too: scrappy pop punks All Dogs and Epoch bands Eskimeaux and Florist.

Johanna Warren, Two Inch Astronaut, Jonah Furman, Thelma @ Palisades
This is a cool bill, with the folky Johanna Warren, post-hardcore band Two Inch Astronaut, former Krill singer Jonah Furman, and Thelma.

Tribute to Nina Simone feat. Nick Hakim, Xenia Rubinos, Deva Mahal, Jaime Woods, Amy Leon, J. Hoard, Paris Monster @ Manhattan Inn
One of the first shows booked since The Hum's Rachael Pazdan began booking Manhattan Inn is this tribute to the legendary Nina Simone, with a pretty great lineup of musicians.

Hans Chew, Rhyton @ Mercury Lounge
This is a good double bill of experimental music, with Hans Chew (of D. Charles Speer & the Helix and other projects) and trippy rock band Rhyton.

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

photo: Grimes at Pitchfork Fest 2014 (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)

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

Grimes @ Guggenheim Museum
Grimes' highly anticipated new album finally drops this week. So far we heard one song that's pretty close to mainstream pop and another that's nothing like pop at all. We don't know what else to expect from this album, but maybe we'll learn more tonight.

Jennylee, Young Magic @ Baby's All Right
Warpaint bassist Jenny Lee Lindberg doesn't stray too far from her band's dark, slinky sound on her solo debut, right on!, which is out in December. Get an early taste tonight.

Soldiers of Fortune @ Max Fish (2 sets)
NYC indie rock super group Soldiers of Fortune (featuring members of Oneida, Chavez, Interpol and more) celebrate their second album tonight with two sets at Max Fish (8:30 PM & 10 PM), both are free. The album features guests like Cass McCombs and Stephen Malkmus...are either in town?

Tribulation, Occultation @ Saint Vitus
The stacked Deafheaven / Envy / Tribulation tour hits NYC's Webster Hall tomorrow, but tonight's an off night and Tribulation are headlining their own show at Saint Vitus. Their new album is a killer mix of black and death metal influences with classic rock riffage and some genuinely catchy songs.

Envy, So Hideous, Edhochuli, Driftoff @ Black Bear Bar
This show has a special guest headliner, and we're hearing it's someone to legitimately be excited for. UPDATE: It's Japanese screamo greats Envy. The undercard is pretty stacked too with atmospheric black metal locals So Hideous, Pittsburgh's proggy post-hardcore band Edhochuli, and Rosetta/Junius/City of Ships-related ragers Driftoff.

Nathaniel Rateliff and The Night Sweats, Land Lines @ Bowery Ballroom
Once a folk singer, Nathaniel Rateliff is now more popular than ever with his soul band Th Night Sweats, whose song "S.O.B." has been pretty unstoppable this year.

Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club @ Beacon Theater
After 16 years, Buena Vista Social Club are saying 'Audios' with a world tour -- and a double-disc reissue of their debut album. This is the second of two nights at Beacon.

Jaye Bartell Record Release, Will Stratton, June West @ Union Pool
Jaye Bartell has been making music since the mid-'00s and you may have seen him open shows for Jessica Pratt or Angel Olsen recently. His sonorous voice fits well with his dark, dusty, folky songs, as can be heard on 2013's Loyalty which just got reissued by Captured Tracks-related label Sinderlyn. He celebrates that reissue tonight.

Jon Glaser, Janeane Garofalo, John Hodgman, Wyatt Cenac, Andy Blitz, Scott Adsit, Eugene Mirman, Carl Newman @ Bell House
Jon Glaser (Delocated, Girls) hosts this night of "Comedytainment" that benefits PS321 and features a whole bunch of funny people, plus New Pornographers' Carl Newman(who is also funny).

Antibalas, Saul Williams, EMEFE @ Brooklyn Bowl
Brooklyn afrobeat band Antibalas are on the second show of their four-show, month-long residency at Brooklyn Bowl tonight. Each has different guests, and tonight it's Saul Williams and EMEFE.

The Districts, Lady Lamb, Sun Club @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Rootsy rockers The Districts headline this show, and if you're going we especially recommend catching Lady Lamb. She's ben consistently great for a while, but this year's After is a noticeable step forward.

Laraaji, Headaches, Foxes in Fiction, James Place @ Trans-Pecos
Influential ambient musician Laraaji has been doing some reissues this year, including a just-released pressing of his Brian Eno-produced 1980 album, Ambient 3: Day of Radiance. The show's presented by the Human Pitch label, whose Landon Speers (aka Headaches) is on the bill. And two newer ambient musicians, Foxes In Fiction and James Place, open.

Midnight North w/ Phil Lesh @ SOB's
The Grateful Dead's Phil Lesh had one 3-night run at the Capitol Theatre this past weekend and he does another this coming weekend. He's got time to kill in between, so tonight he's joining his son Grahame's band Midnight North for a few songs at their SOB's shows.

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

Mirman Fest 2015

Mirman Fest 2015
Mirman Fest 2015

The 2015 Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival happened over the weekend with events at The Bell House and Union Hall (and then a EMCF edition of StarTalk Live! on Monday at Beacon Theatre). Among this year's festivities: Mirman's 'Pretty Good Friends' show featured the work of Elegant Too, the production team behind the songs on Bob's Burgers. They brought up different performers to sing the songs, including Jon Spencer & Cristina Martinez (Boss Hog, etc) who did "Sex Song" and a couple others, AC Newman and Eleanor Friedberger performed "Fart School for the Gifted" and "Electric Love" and Mirman sang "Gene's Snake Song." They brought out everyone at the end to cover Blondie's "One Way or Another."

On Sunday, since the Emmys were happening in real life at the same time, the EMCF hosted the Fake Emmys. It should be noted that there were a few past EMCF performers up for real awards, including Amy Schumer, Jon Glaser, Jessi Klein, John Oliver, Josh Gondelman, John Mulaney, Louis CK, not to mention Archer and Bob's Burgers

Other fun things at this year's fest: Mirman hired a mariachi band to play the crowd out; there was free ice cream for everyone on Saturday night; and there were curiosities like the "Eye Contact Booth with Eugene" booths where you could "Get Local Real Estate advice" and "Swear at a Local Broker" and outside Bell House was the "Bounce with someone we paid to compliment you in a bouncy castle." Also: Reggie Watts, John Hodgman, Stephin Merritt of Magnetic Fields, Jessi Klein, Janeane Garofalo, Ira Glass, Jo Firestone, Scott Adsit, Jon Benjamin and many more.

the late Del Close in 'Ferris Bueller's Day Off'
Del Close

The Upright Citizens Brigade's annual Del Close Marathon will feature 575 improv shows from June 26-28, happening around-the-clock on nine stages across seven locations: UCB Chelsea, UCB East, Theater for the New City, 4th Street Theatre, Magnet Theater, SVA Theatre and FIT Haft Auditorium. You can buy a $35 wristband at UCB Chelsea starting June 26 at noon, and that gets you into every show (subject to capacity, of course). The only shows with advance tickets are the higher-profile, bigger shows at SVA and FIT, which include:

FRIDAY 6/26: Broad City Live (sold out), an improv session with Key & Peele writers, Horatio Sanz's "The Hooray Show"; and improv with the cast of Silicon Valley.

SATURDAY 6/27: Nick Kroll & Friends, an improv show with The Daily Show writers; Mad Men finale scene-stealer Brett Gelman's Gelmania! Live!, and an improvised show with Comedy Bang! Bang! writers.

SUNDAY 6/28: a special preview screening of Thank You Del Close documentary and two editions of ASSSSCAT 3000 (7:30 PM sold out; 10 PM you can get tickets)

Non-ticketed events, most of which are only 30 minutes (some even less), include Tami Sagher and Chris Gethard (6/27, 3 PM at UCB Chelsea), "Mike Birbiglia's Dream" (6/27, 6:30 PM at UCB Chelsea), the writers of Late Night with Seth Meyers doing a show (6/27, 9:30 PM at Magnet Theatre), 30 Rock's Scott Adsit (6/28, 3:30 PM at UCB Chelsea), and an entirely improvised episode of Seinfeld (6/28, 4:30 PM at UCB Chelsea).

As this goes for three days straight, needless to say there is a lot more, so pour over the whole 2015 Del Close Marathon schedule.

Meemaw visits 'Wake Up, White People' host David Cross on 'The Heart, She Holler' S3

John Lee and Vernon Chatman have been weirding out late night television viewers for 10 years as the primary creative forces behind PFFR: first with not-for-kids kids show Wonder Showzen, then with the hallucinogenic, hard-to-look-at Xavier: Renegade Angel and, most recently, on the Southern Gothic soap opera The Heart, She Holler. (They were also writers and producers on Jon Glazer's awesome Delocated.) The thread running through them all: Lee and Chatman's gleeful dismantling of American culture, labyrinthine and pun-filled dialogue, and a desire to see viewers' jaws drop.

Season three of The Heart She, Holler debuts on December 1 on Adult Swim, starring folks like Patton Oswalt, David Cross, Amy Sedaris, Scott Adsit (30 Rock), Steve Little (East Bound and Down) and other familiar comedy faces. You can watch the trailer below. There's a Season Three preview screening on Tuesday (11/18) at BAM at 7:30 with a Q&A with Q&A with Adsit (who just joined the cast) and John Lee. It's free and you can RSVP to attend, though entry is based on capacity. We're also giving away a pair of guaranteed passes as well, and details on that are below.

PFFR's John Lee

In addition to working on his own shows, John Lee has directed episodes of Broad City and a few music videos, and he used to be in a couple bands: jokey late-'90s indie rockers Muckafurgason, and a pre-TV PFFR who put out records in the early '00s. Full disclosure: I've known John for almost 20 years, and he took a few minutes away from scarring Middle America's eyeballs to talk about The Heart She Holler, food courts, unprecedented sexual positions, Morrissey, David Lynch and the difficulties of wrangling an ex-President for a cameo. PFFR are infamous for their non-interview interviews, but there's at least a little directness here.


BrooklynVegan: So what are you working on now? Season 3 of The Heart She Holler is in the can, right?

John Lee: Yeah, it's in the trash can as we say. The trash can of America. Any of your local mall food courts, that's what we call the trash can. We call the South "Food Court America" up here in the North.

BV: How much time have you and Vernon spent in the South?

JL: (Laughs) Together or separately? Well, together it was all in sin. It felt like forever but it was only six minutes. Um, separately? Through touring... it would add up to a handful of peanuts. A bag of boiled peanuts, that's how long I've spent in the South. But the thing is you don't even need to spend time in the South to understand American culture, like American hillbilly ideals. All you have to do is go 40 minutes outside of any city and you're there. America, it's all that. It's everywhere you go. The South is just the place everyone says "Oh, it's that." But it's not, it's everywhere.

Did you think you'd be doing a third season of The Heart, She Holler when you guys came up with the idea?

We, as in PFFR, all our shows that are self-created have never gotten past a second season. This is the first time we've broken the curse. Wonder Showzen was only two seasons, Xavier was only two seasons. Delocated made it longer, but that wasn't just our show. It was a thrill, but we were also scared because when you break a curse you never know what sort of demon's going to show up. The undead will rise? Your nightmares will become reality? We'll see.

It's hard to believe it's been well over a decade since the Upright Citizens Brigade first started their weekend-long improv marathon. Since its more modest conception as a two-day festival at one theatre, the Del Close Marathon has expanded exponentially, enjoying its biggest and most diverse year yet this weekend (June 27 - 29). While over 420 (hehe) shows across eight venues may seem intimidating to some, the Del Close Marathon is definitely worth checking out. Passes are $30 (cash only) and can be purchased at any of the venues. They get you into most of the shows, some bigger performances have separate tickets.

This year's lineup is packed with more comedy elite than a Comedy Central roast. Big names include Nick Kroll, Amy Poehler, Aubrey Plaza, Thomas Middleditch (of Silicon Valley), Sasheer Zamata (SNL), the girls of Broad City (Ilana Glazer & Abbi Jacobson), and more. Beyond just the celebrities, this weekend promises to bring some of the strongest improvised comedy you're likely to see anytime soon, so stop by! Here are some highlights from the weekend:

Friday (6/27):
Friday is packed with premium shows. "John and Scott" features John Lutz and Scott Adsit, experienced improvisors and 30 Rock cast members, doing what is sure to be a hilarious hour of two-man comedy. You can find tickets to that show here. The Chris Gethard Show is having a Game of Thrones-style battle to the death to see who gets to attend its Comedy Central pilot (which didn't get picked up) for the first, and only, public viewing. You can buy tickets to that show here. However, for the real improv nerds, the place to be Friday night is the original UCB Theatre in Chelsea. Come for the 4 PM press conference and stay for "Director's Commentary with Ben Schwartz [of Parks & Recreation] & Friends"; "MOTHER" (veteran improv team featuring Jason Mantzoukas (of The League and Jon Daly of Kroll Show).

Saturday (6/28):
Saturday, stop by UCBeast to listen in on a live taping of Matt Besser's podcast, improv4humans at 2 PM. Then run back to the main Chelsea theatre for "The Hiking Trip," (featuring Gil Ozeri, Ben Schwartz, and Horatio Sanz), "Mantzoukas and Morris" (with Jason Mantzoukas and Seth Morris), "Casey & Woods" (with SNL writer Neil Casey and Zach Woods (The Office, Silicon Valley). Or check out the late night lineup at the theatre, featuring Mike Birbiliga telling monologues, SNL's John Milhiser improvising, and the original Derrick Comedy crew, minus Donald Glover.

Sunday (6/29):
If you've made it to Sunday, dear reader, you've made me proud. And you will be rewarded, in the form of a fantastic afternoon of improv. Stop by the Chelsea theatre for "Baby Wants Candy" (an improvised musical act from LA), "The Mantzoukas Brothers," "Adsit & You," and more. Then run over to the Haft Auditorium to wait on a standby line for the legendary ASSSSCAT, featuring all of the original members of the UCB theatre doing what they do best. Both ASSSSCATs are sold out, but you might get lucky.

So grab your friends, grab a bottle of water (as the Del Close Marathon really is a marathon), and grab your wristbands at any of the eight venues hosting the festival across the city. I'll see you there.

St. Vincent

In addition to everything else we posted, today, here's some more, and some reminders too...

Hope to see you at Pianos tonight, unless of course you're celebrating Yom Kippur which started at sundown (or under 21).

It's also National Voter Registration Day, as miss Annie Clark has so kindly reminded us above. Did you register to vote yet? We also would like to know, however, what's the deal with the Tiny Tim photo in the background?

That photo is actually part of a series orchestrated by HeadCount where over 200 celebrities, including Jeff Tweedy, were photographed with "Register to Vote" clipboards. You can see them all here.

Speaking of St. Vincent, it's David Byrne / St. Vincent Week here in NYC. Their first of three area shows together happens tonight at the Beacon Theater, as Kelly Pratt pointed out in the latest edition of his tour diary.

Neil Young has started a Twitter account and will be taking your questions via it in October. Right now, though, @NeilYoung seems to handled by a marketing intern.

Prince took a 40 minute encore break last night in Chicago.

Paper Bag Records just released the free David Bowie tribute album, Paper Bag Records vs. The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars, with covers by Austra & CFCF, PS I Love You, The Luyas, Yamantaka/Sonic Titan and more. Download it for free HERE.

Speaking of Yamantaka/Sonic Titan, they performed at the Polaris Prize Gala in Toronto last night, but ended up losing to Feist.

Converge is back with "Shame In the Way" a new song from their forthcoming LP All We Love We Leave Behind. Stream that new track, coupled with an interview with vocalist Jacob Bannon in the latest Show Now Mercy at Pitchfork. Look for the LP on 10/9 via Epitaph.

Sweden's Terrible Feelings have released a new video for "Next Round's On You" from their Shadows LP. Check that out below.

Field Report visited the A.V. Club's HQ in Chicago and took on the Sufjan Stevens mainstay "Chicago" for their Undercover series. Check out the clip below.

You can also check out Thee Oh Sees' side of the new Famous Class' "LAMC" 7" series which they were selling last night at their very sweaty Death by Audio show. It's streaming below.

Main Mountain Goat John Darnielle talks (vegetarian) food - including pizza, popcorn and, yes, hummus over at FoodRepublic. He and the band will be in NYC next month.

More stuff below...

Eugene Mirman at The Bell House, Sept. 2011 (more by David Andrako)
Eugene Mirman

I mentioned some upcoming comedy-type events yesterday, but here are a few more shows of note that I forgot to mention. On Wednesday August 1st, 826NYC will play host to an event called 826NYC Presents Dueling Bingo. 826NYC is a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting students ages 6-18 with their creative and expository writing skills, and to helping teachers inspire their students to write. At the event, whose goal is to raise money for 826NYC and their various endeavors...

...you will go head to head against other players, including actress Catherine Keener, comedian Eugene Mirman, author Sarah Vowell, writer and producer Eric Gilliland, actor Scott Adsit, actress Kathy Najimy, and actor and musician Dan Finnerty to win fabulous prizes while supporting the free literacy programs of 826NYC.
There is a $25 registration fee and you must raise at least $100 to qualify for play. This event floats my boat on three levels. First off, I am a huge proponent of literacy in young adults and children. True imagination and articulate minds are a dying commodity and if we don't perpetuate the cycle of literacy we don't have much of a future people. Second, good line-up! Scott Adsit dude! Eugene Mirman! The voice of Peggy Hill! NO DOUBT this is going to be hella fun. Lastly, I LOVE BINGO! Back when I was a young man living in small town USA I used to sometimes go to my local Elks Lodge on Bingo night and play along with the old timers. They were a quiet lot when the numbers were being called, but between games and during snacktime... man, the stories they'd tell! They even let me take pictures during gameplay one night back in 1998. Instill the desire to learn in the young and respect your elders people!

Not feeling charitable but still want something funny to entertain yourself with on August 1st? Then perhaps you should head over to the Bell House! For on August 1st, the Bell House will play host to TELL YOUR FRIENDS! SUMMER FUN SPLASHTACULAR! The show will be hosted by the great Liam Mceneaney and feature Janeane Garofalo, Wyatt Cenac, Todd Barry, and musical guest The Starlight Girls.

Symphony Space, where I suffered permanent hearing damage during a Melvins/Keiji Haino live scoring of Cameron Jamie films, is a wonderful place with fantastically diverse programming. Comedy is a solid part of their repertoire and has been for quite some time. The comedic tradition continues on Tuesday July 24th when they present another in their ongoing and absolutely fucking hilarious series Uptown Showdown, this time featuring Kristen Schall, Kurt Braunohler, Christian Finnegan, Myq Kaplan, Bob Powers, and Matthew Love this time debating the topic of BABIES vs OLD PEOPLE.

Every other month Uptown Showdown brings together two teams of comedians, writers and performers to go head-to-head on a variety of topics, such as which pet is superior cats or dogs and is it better to be comfortable or fashionable? Debaters will argue these lingering questions, drawing from historical fact and personal opinion in equal measure, and with plenty of audience participation. Forget about school reform and health care, these issues, heatedly argued by some of the funniest, smartest, intensely wacky creative thinkers around, are the topics that keep us awake at night....in a good way. Winner decided by the audience.
Tickets to this awesome show are on sale now. But don't dilly-dally. Get one or several ASAP! Symphony Space is such a great place to see a show; comfy seats, perfect sightlines no matter where you are, clean lavs... the works!

Last and least, we're sad to hear that Kristen Schaal is moving to LA (so catch her in NYC while you can!). Six days after the Symphony Space shows she plays what will be her LAST-ever Hot Tub with Kurt at Littlefield. Her and Kurt are also at Williamsburg Park this Thursday. NYC isn't going to be the same.

Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival 2011

The Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival is underway, and continues tonight (Friday, 9/16) at both Union Hall & the Bell House. Thursday night's show at the Bell House (the only Thursday night show there was) was a live taping of Neil deGrasse Tyson's radio show, Star Talk. Eugene Mirman was a guest as were Kristen Schaal and Scott Adsit. Neil's guest, unannounced, was Alan Alda. They recorded the show for future broadcast and had a lengthy Q&A after the taping (stay tuned). Here are some pictures. They continue below...
