Vaselines

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

The Vaselines, Amanda X @ Bell House
Scottish indie rock royalty The Vaselines have now released two albums since returning from a long hiatus, most recently with 2013's V is for Vaselines. They're a lot of fun live, with the banter between Frances McKee and Eugene Kelly providing almost as much entertainment as their songs. On past tours, the band has included members of Belle & Sebastian, but this time folks from Sons & Daughters and 1990s help out. Philadelphia's Amanda X are worth showing up early.

Dr. Dog, Yellerkin @ Bowery Ballroom
It's the second to last night of Dr. Dog's 8-night NYC run, and this one's with NY's Yellerkin.

Stephen Brodsky, King Collider @ Sugarcube
Following a happy hour with comedy, interviews and more at Sugarcube (Fulton & Front Streets), a night of free music takes over headlined by Stephen Brodsky, longtime frontman of metal shapeshifters Cave In, more recently frontman of punk/metal rippers Mutoid Man, and also an excellent solo artist.

Mike Pace and The Child Actors (ex-Oxford Collapse), ARMS, Lame Drivers @ Union Hall
Onetime leader of Oxford Collapse, Mike Pace is still mining similar indie rock territory. Which is just fine with us. Tonight's the record release show for his new album.

Karma To Burn, Sierra, Shitkill @ Saint Vitus
Instrumental stoner rock vets Karma to Burn reunited back in 2009 and stayed active, most recently releasing their Arch Stanton album in 2014. Tonight they make their way to NYC in support of that.

LODRO, Pawns, Bambara, Young Runner @ Palisades
If your taste runs dark, tonight's a good bill of somewhat sinister indie rock, with LODRO's bluesy/sultry swagger, Pawns' melodramatic postpunk, and the sheer force of Bambara.

LVL UP, Two Inch Astronaut, Dumb Talk, Pupppy @ Shea Stadium
This is a good bill of DIY rock, most notably for '90s-style indie rockers LVL UP and Dischord-inspired post-hardcore band Two Inch Astronaut.

Sam Owens, Video Daughters, Meenk, Laser Background, Mr. Twin Sister (DJ Set) @ Silent Barn
This show is a release party for the new Gravesend Recordings compilation tape and some the acts featured on it are performing. The night's headlined by Celestial Shore's Sam Owens.

Sporting Life (of Ratking), Show Me The Body, Tippwerk, The Taxidermists @ Silent Barn
Ratking gain the descriptor of "alt-rap" partially thanks to Sporting Life's off-kilter production, and he'll be showing that off in solo form tonight. This is the venue's late show.

Dillon Francis, Bro Safari, Anamanaguchi @ Terminal 5
EDM fans may want to know that Dillon Francis begins his 3-night run at Terminal 5 tonight, but even if you're not into EDM, chiptuners Anamanaguchi are worth catching.

Mantra Percussion, Wet Ink, Deborah Lohse and the Shakedown Dance Collective @ Winter Garden at Brookfield Place
It's the kickoff week for the 2015 Ecstatic Music Festival that aims to blur the line between rock/pop and modern composers. This event -- featuring Mantra Percussion performing specially commissioned works by Wet Ink with choreography by Deborah Lohse and the Shakedown Dance Collective -- is a free show

Bill Frisell @ Lincoln Center
With help from violist Eyvind Kang, bassist Thomas Morgan, drummer Rudy Royston, and singer/violinist Petra Haden (That Dog), guitarist Bill Frisell is performing interpretations of classics from the big screen like "When You Wish Upon a Star," "Alfie," and "Moon River."

Krill's third album, A Distant Fist Unclenching, is coming out on February 17 via Exploding In Sound / Double Double Whammy, and its new single "Torturer" is another good example of their Spencer Krug meets Western Mass-style rock. You can stream it below.

Riz & Heems

Former Das Racist member Heems teamed up with British rapper/actor Riz MC (aka Riz Ahmed) and the duo released their Swet Shop EP on Heems' Greedhead label earlier this year. It's got production from Lushline, Lynas, Ryan Hemsworth and DADRAS, and it's more proof that Heems has pretty much been on fire this year (his verse on the Meyhem Luaren & Buckwild album is A+). Listen below.
