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

Bruce Springsteen @ Prudential Center
The Boss is celebrating his classic 1980 double album The River this year by playing the whole thing start to finish. He's promising other favorites too, and his recent MSG was full of great ones. After this, three more NYC shows are on the horizon.

Horrendous, Hercyn, Grudges, Sentience @ Saint Vitus
Of all the modern bands putting a new spin on classic death metal, Horrendous are quite possibly the best one around right now. Last year's Anareta was at or near the top of many metal lists in 2015, including some of our own.

50 Cent @ Highline Ballroom
50 Cent's sadly more well known these days for taking shots at Meek Mill on Instagram than he is for his new music, but there's no denying he was unstoppable for a minute there in the 2000s. And that old stuff lives up great. Tonight's the second of two NYC shows this weekend.

The Paul Collins Beat, The Jay Vons, Talsness @ Union Pool
Former Nerves songwriter and power pop godfather Paul Collins helped pioneer a jangly sound that's still being imitated today.

Stand Up for 826NYC feat. Maeve Higgins, Chris Gethard, Seaton Smith, Naomi Ekperigin, Giulia Rozzi, Sean Donnelly, Katina Corrao @ Bell House
A great lineup of comedy talent is on hand for this benefit for 826NYC, a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting students ages 6-18 with their creative and expository writing skills.

Cigarettes After Sex, Libsyd Read @ Baby's All Right
Local act Cigarettes After Sex have racked up nearly six millions plays of their single "Nothing's Gonna Hurt You Baby" that sounds a little like Mazzy Star covering The Pretenders "Back on the Chain Gang."

Lauryn Hill

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

Lauryn Hill @ Brooklyn Bowl
Lauryn Hill has come back into her element over the past year or so, and has been dropping hints (and at least one new track) that she's set to release a new album.

Petal, Adult Mom, Jawbreaker Reunion, 100% @ Silent Barn
Kiley Lotz's Petal project may have initially caught our attention for sometimes featuring Tigers Jaw members live an on record, but Kiley's a great songwriter and performer in her own right. This bill doubles as the NYC stop on the Adult Mom/Jawbreaker Reunion tour, and opens with 100% (aka Crying singer Elaiza Santos).

Night Train hosted by Wyatt Cenac @ Littlefield
All aboard Wyatt Cenac's weekly comedy cavalcade. Tonight's guests include Hari Kondabolu, Monroe Martin, Kara Klenk, Sean Donnelly and more.

Reverend Vince Anderson and the Love Choir @ Union Pool
Reverend Vince Anderson, who describes his dirty gospel sound as "somewhere between Wesley Willis and Tammy Faye Messner," has had a Monday residency at Union Pool for years. Like always, it's free.

The *other* Monty Hall...
monty hall

WFMU's performance space, located in the ground floor of their Jersey City building, is now open and has a name fitting the radio station's spirt: Monty Hall. It was christened last month with a show featuring Doug Gillard, Pampers, Spectre Folk and Watery Love. Watch some videos below.

Now more shows are beginning to appear. The next performance at Monty Hall is September 7 is the previously mentioned Sir Richard Bishop and Tashi Dorji show which will be recorded for Brian Turner's show on the station:

Tashi Dorji is Bhutan-born guitarist absorbed a childhood full of shortwave radio before moving to the US and discovering Derek Bailey and Albert Ayler and incorporating all his musical loves into a truly varied and forward-thinking vocabulary. In this era some may have chalked up the guitar to have exhausted itself as a means of breaking new boundaries in expression, yet Dorji, now in North Carolina, has wowed such advanced axemen as Bill Orcutt, Ben Chasny, and Sir Richard Bishop of the Sun City Girls who is part two of tonight's bill, making his second appearance on Brian's show.
The other upcoming show happens September 13 and features People Like Us (aka Vicki Bennett) who is presenting "two performances of audio and moving image." She'll be first performing solo and then People Like Us will be joined by M.C. Schmidt (Matmos) and Jason Willett for a collaborative performance. Tickets to both shows are on sale now. Flyers below.

The space will also be hosting a quarterly variety series called Prove It All Night. The first installment took place earlier this month with Joe Jack Talcum from the Dead Milkmen, PUNK magazine creator John Holstrom, and stand-up comedian Sean Donnelly. Host/organizer/WFMU DJ Pat Byrne told NJ.com, "We'll eventually be streaming live video of the series to the web...we have four cameras set up in the studio, and it's a theater but everything can be broadcast on the Internet as well as the airwaves."

Show flyers and those videos from the first show, below...

The Men @ MHOW, Novemeber '13 (more by Ebru Yildiz)
The Men

Seoul @ Pop Montreal 2013 (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)
Seoul

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

The Men, Ukiah Drag @ Bowery Ballroom
The Men's prolific album-a-year schedule and ever-changing sound that has shifted from dark sludge punk to Replacements-y indie rock to Crazy Horse style jams leaves them with a ton of variety to throw into their raucous sets. If you're going, don't miss the western-tinged psych punks The Ukiah Drag, who open.

The Lawrence Arms, The Copyrights, Elway @ Gramercy Theatre
The Lawrence ended an 8-year gap between albums with this year's Metropole, and for a band who's been away from releasing music for so long, it's surprisingly one of their best records.

CTZNSHP, Adult Dude, Longarms @ Spike Hill
Local rockers Adult Dude make a great mix of Dinosaur Jr-style rock and Superchunk-style punk, and are worth showing up to this one for.

Joan As Police Woman @ Union Pool
Joan as Policewoman's new album, The Classic, finds her in classic (and classy) R&B mode with some of her most ebullient songs yet. Tonight's show is sold out but you can catch her at Rough Trade in May too.

Rush Midnight, Seoul, Sea Oleena, Daniel Klag @ Cake Shop
Montreal band Seoul make airy, crystaline pop that's funky and soulful in an '80s kind of way. This is their second of two NYC shows this week with fellow MTL band Sea Oleena.

Limited, Life Size Maps, Limited, Beiju, Lazyeyes, The Silver Palms @ Pianos
Tonight's the first of Life Size Maps' March Residency at Pianos. They've curated a good lineup to kick things off, with Lazyeyes and Limited (Alex from Big Troubles' synthpop solo project).

Eugene Mirman, Sarah Vowell, Ken Burns, Kurt Anderson, John Oliver, Questlove, Fred Armisen, Masha Gessen, Robyn Hitchcock @ Town Hall
New York nonprofit 826NYC is celebrating 10 years of providing students ages 6 - 18 with free literacy and writing programs with this event osted by Eugene Mirman and Sarah Vowell which pairs distinguished artists in conversation.

Snow Tha Product, Caskey, Chris Miles @ Santos Party House
Snow Tha Product has some pretty fun jams like "Cookie Cutter Bitches" and we have a pretty good feeling the crowd at Santos is gonna turn up to those jams tonight.

Scott Ian @ BB King's
As guitarist for thrash vets Anthrax, Scott Ian has amassed a lot of stories. Hear some of the more entertaining ones tonight as part of his spoken word tour.

Ghost Beach, Fascinator, Chrome Sparks @ Baby's All Right
Tonight's show is a release party for Ghost Beach's new album, Blonde. It's free with RSVP.

Big Terrific @ Cameo
Max Silvestri hosts the free weekly comedy show in the back of Williamsburg's Lovin' Cup. Tonight's talent includes Claudia Cogan, Joe Zimmerman, Rob Cantrell, and Sean Donnelly.

'Lost Highway' @ Nitehawk Cinema
David Lynch's classic 1997 film kicks off Nighthawk's series on composer Angelo Badalamenti. The screening will be preceeded by a set from Silent Draper Runners-related band A Place Both Wonderful and Strange.

There was much laughter to be had at the 2013 Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival last weekend at The Bell House and Union Hall. We already posted pictures from the first two nights and here's a set from Saturday (9/28) and Sunday (9/29). Saturday at The Bell House brought "Hot Tub with Kurt And Kristen" back to New York (both Braunohler and Schaal live in LA now) with appearances by Nick Turner, Nick Kroll, Leo Allen, and Bridgett Everett (whose new show is debuting at Joe's Pub soon); and over at Union Hall it was "Comics We Hope Don't Move To LA (Though We Understand There Is Much More Work There)."

Then on Sunday, the EMCF celebrated the Season 4 premiere of Bob's Burgers with cast members  Eugene Mirman, Kristen Schaal, Jon Benjamin,  Larry Murphy, Hannibal Buress, and Jon Glaser. Stephin Merrit -- who didn't even appear at The Bell House when Future Bible Heroes (a band he actually is in) played -- also came out with Kenny Mellman to sing one of the show's songs, "Electric Love." Over at Union Hall on Sunday it was "Creaghead & Company EMCF Edition: Thoughtfully Included Since It Was Scheduled Here Anyway."

Pics from nights 1 & 2 are here. More pics from nights 3 & 4 of EMCF 2013 below...

Podfest

The United States is rife with three things; assholes, podcasts, and assholes with podcasts. For me, podcasts are an unnavigable medium because anybody with a computer and 1/8th of a normal sized human brain can produce a podcast. Don't get me wrong; there are some incredible podcasts out there and the world is taking notice. Julie Klausner's podcast How Was Your Week has reached an almost legendary status and even got a glowing write-up in the Times recently. Marc Maron's WTF podcast basically set the standard for what constitutes a quality podcast. Greg Proops, Dave Hill, and Doug Benson also all have wonderful podcasts. And yet, the only reason I know of and can vouch for the quality of these podcasts and the people behind them is because I was a huge fan of these people in a pre-podcast world.

NYC is an epicenter of podcasting. If only there was a way where a guy like me could see, say, over 20 live podcasts on 2 stages over the course of 2 days consuming nearly 12 amazing hours of my life. Of wait. THERE IS! The naugural New York City Podcast Festival will take place at on 2 stages at The Pit on January 12th and January 13th 2013!! This show features a staggering line-up of talent including Dave Hill (Klaus Kinski favorite), Nick Turner (Klaus Kinski favorite), Kevin Allison, Wyatt Cenac, Gary Gulman, Craig Rowin, Jeff Rubin, Jermaine Fowler, Liam McEneaney, TV's Frank Conniff , Halley Feiffer, Julieanne Smolinski, Dan St. Germain, Sean Donnelly, Jackie Kashian, Myq Kaplan, MC Mr Napkins, Jared Logan, Anthony Antamanuik, Dan Soder, Mike Pace, and many others. This, my friends and enemies, is probably the greatest crash course in awesome podcasts on the planet and it's happening in our very own back yard. Keep your (dead) eyes on the NycPodFest Facebook Page for updates!

You can see the FULL SCHEDULE BELOW. You can buy tickets for individual shows, buy a festival pass, or you can win tickets right here! We have 5 SINGLE tickets to give away for Dave Hills Podcasting Incident with guest Gavin Mcinnes for 1/12 at 11pm. We also have 5 SINGLE tickets to give away for ThisMyShow on 1/13 at 7pm with guest Nick Turner. Contest deets are waaayyyyy down there...
