Phantogram @ Bonnaroo 2012 (more by Dana [distortion] Yavin)
Browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows. Here are some highlights...
King Krule @ Webster Hall
Archie Marshall is an old soul trapped in a minor's body, a dichotomy made apparent on his terrific debut album, Six Feet Beneath the Moon, which mixes thoughtful songwriting with modern productions touches. Tonight's sold out.
Ida Maria @ Rough Trade
Norwegian singer-songwriter Ida Maria, once known for her wildcard electric performances, returns for her first NYC shows in some time. Will "Oh My God" still have the same punch?
Foley, The Dirty Nil, Shy Hunters, Tyburn Saints @ Glasslands
Tonight's finally the NYC debut of Canada punk rippers The Dirty Nil, who were supposed to play here in October but had to cancel at the last minute. If you like your punk quick and dirty, check this band out.
Phantogram, Until The Ribbon Breaks, Weeknight @ Terminal 5
While fans wait for Phantogram's new album, they can hear a few new songs -- like "Lights" from the Hunger Games: Catching Fire soundtrack -- tonight at Terminal 5.
Sean Nicholas Savage, Zula, Regal Degal, Softspot @ Death By Audio
Prolific and a little eccentric, Montreal artist Sean Nicholas Savage mixes genres with abandon, as heard most recently on this year's Other Life, which came out on Arbutus Records (home of Grimes, Doldrums and more).
Dapwell from Das Racist (DJ set), The Kominas, Gandu Cirus, Ashni, Cerenkov, Gabe Merizalde @ Pianos
This is an afterparty for the South Asian Film Festival which is going on in NYC this week. Massachusetts band The Kominas headline, followed by a DJ set from onetime Das Racist member, Dapwell.
GOASTT (Ghost of a Sabre Tooth Tiger), Aaron Roche @ Union Pool
If anyone has a right to ape the psych-pop sounds of The Beatles it's Sean Lennon who does just that with his band Ghost of a Sabre Tooth Tiger who are now just going by the acronym GOASTT.
Elton John @ Madison Square Garden
With close to fifty years of pop/rock songwriting and a new album out this year that at least Rolling Stone likes, Elton John takes over MSG for what will surely be a night of hits.
Nothing Changes w/ Mueran Humanos, Reverso @ Home Sweet Home
South American synth-goths Mueran Humanos headline this week's edition of the popular late-night darkwave party.
O'Death, The Woes @ Brooklyn Bowl
Brooklyn's O'Death have been kicking for quite a while now, making their dark brand of gothic alt-country.
Occultation, Survival, Yautja, Razorheads @ Acheron
Occultation, the spooky rock/metal band featuring the guitarist of weirdo black metal act Negative Plane, kick off a week-long tour with a BK appearance alongside up-and-coming Nashville grinders Yautja and locals Razorheads and Survival (not the Liturgy side project)." Or something.
Big Terrific @ Cameo Gallery
Max Silvestri hosts the free weekly comedy show in the back of Williamsburg's Lovin' Cup. Tonight's line-up features Ali Wong, Andy Haynes, Phoebe Robinson, Chris Tellez, and Joe DeRosa.
Melissa Laveaux, Stranger Cat @ Cameo
Paris-via-Ottawa singer Melissa Laveaux comes to NYC to headline this show, and there's pretty great local support from Cat Martino's new electronic project Stranger Cat.

Action Bronson at Coachella 2013 (more by Wei Shi)
The Bushwick Block Party is returning this year on July 27 across multiple stages on Moore Street between Bogart & White. This year's party is being headlined by Queens rapper Action Bronson, and also features sets by Pictureplane, Jamaican Queens, MC Todd, Death Threat, World's Fair, Galeon, Full Service, The Moon Dudes, Big Ups, Joe Bickle and more, plus the Tiki Disco.
The party runs from noon to 11 PM, and as usual, it's being presented by Bushwick pizza place Roberta's, so there will be tons of pizza from them plus a bunch of food trucks, including one from Action Bronson. 10% of all pizza sales benefit St. John's Bread & Life. More info at the Facebook event. Flyer for the party below.
In related news, you can also catch Jamaican Queens (ex-Prussia) sooner than that when they bring their tour with Sean Nicholas Savage to Brooklyn on July 18 at 285 Kent (tickets). Since we last spoke, art pop band Blanche Blanche Blanche and Regal Degal were added to that show as well.

Montreal's Arbutus-signed Sean Nicholas Savage has been at it for a few years now, but he's been getting a lot more attention this year, possibly due in part to the increased success of his Montreal friends/Arbutus labelmates (Grimes, Doldrums, Majical Cloudz). Sean's new album, Other Life, came out this week (5/28), and it should appeal to fans of the nostalgia-pop of Ariel Pink or John Maus. We previously posted one of its tracks, "She Looks Like You." If you missed it, you can stream that one below, along with two other album cuts, "More Than I Love Myself" and "Lonely Woman," and the video for the title track (via Pitchfork).
Sean will be supporting the new album on a short North American tour this summer with Prussia-related band Jamaican Queens. That tour hits NYC on July 18 at 285 Kent. Advance tickets for that show are not on sale at the moment, but you can check Ticketfly for updates.
All dates are listed, along with streams and video, below...
Mykki Blanco at Official BV SXSW 2013 Showcase (more by Amanda Hatfield)
NYC rapper Mykki Blanco is on a tour now, which includes a previously mentioned hometown show on April 2 at Bowery Ballroom. Since we first posted that show, openers were announced -- DJ MikeQ, Rizzla, and Ian Isiah -- and tickets are still available. The tour also hits the Ivy League circuit with stops in Princeton, NJ for a Princeton University show at Terrace Club and New Haven, CT for a Yale University show at Toad's Place. All tour dates are listed below.
Mykki's Yale show is with Pictureplane, who he also shared a bill with at the BrooklynVegan Official SXSW showcase (pics of that are HERE and HERE), along with Beat Culture and Physical Therapy. Pictureplane is also heading out as a support act on the second leg of Crystal Castles' upcoming tour.
Meanwhile, Doldrums, who also played a BrooklynVegan show at SXSW this year opens the first leg of Crystal Castles' tour. His tour also hits NYC for shows on April 13 at 285 Kent with Arbutus labelmate Sean Nicholas Savage (listen to a track below) and on May 8 at Mercury Lounge. Tickets for the 285 Kent show and the Mercury show are still available.
All Mykki Blanco, Pictureplane, Crystal Castles, and Doldrums dates are listed, along with a stream of Mykki's free mixtape and that Sean Nicholas Savage track, below...

Making good use of those year-long visas, Montreal trio Parlovr are heading back down to the States next week for a short North East tour, with two stops here in NYC: Wednesday, July 21 for an early show at Mercury Lounge and and Friday, July 23 at Knitting Factory. Both show are with fellow Montreal act Suuns. (More on them further down this post.)
Parlovr's 2008 debut just got a belated stateside release -- download "Pen to the Paper" at the top of this post -- and the band are about to head back into the studio for its follow-up. As I've said before, they're an entertaining live band. Here's what I wrote from last year's M for Montreal:
The band's self-titled, self-released 2008 album does not do them justice, making them sound like a Wolf Parade Jr. Live, Parlovr are way more energetic, fun and melodic -- though it may have also had something to do with a fair amount of new material in their set. Singers Louis Jackson and Alex Cooper semi face each other from opposite sides of the stage rocking back and forth like manic Drinking Birds, flipping their '90s skate rat hair around, while mountain man drummer Jeremy MacCuish holds down the beat. They clearly enjoy playing, and it's a lot of fun to watch too.Be sure to watch Parlovr's two new Takeaway shows which are at the bottom of this post. One of them features an unexpected run-in with a Montreal councilman, the outcome of which probably wouldn't happen in NYC.
After their U.S. jaunt, Parlovr will head back to Montreal, where they'll play a free warm-up party for the Osheaga Festival on July 29 at Cafe Campus that is being sponsored by Brooklyn Vegan, M for Montreal, Canadian music mag Exclaim and Blue Skies Turn Black. The 2010 Osheaga Festival is July 31 and August 1, with Arcade Fire, Weezer, Pavement, The National and Metric among the bands playing.
Meanwhile, Suuns will continue on in the U.S. after their dates with Parlovr. The band, who until just a couple month ago were known as Zeroes, will hit the road, opening for some of the dates on Land of Talk's fall tour. (Their portion of the tour will end before Land of Talk plays Bowery on November 6 though.) The band's EP, Zeroes, is quite good, sounding a little bit like Clinic -- dark and claustrophobic but also capable of going epic, as on "Arena" which you can download at the top of this post. This will be a good double-bill.
Those two Parlovr takeaway shows, flyers and tour dates for both Parlovr and Suuns are after the jump.
