The Books are playing ATP, but won't be back in NYC for a little while. Comedian Hanibal Buress performs at Knitting Factory every Sunday night (but not this Sunday). Avi Buffalo and Dungen also have future dates coming up, and probably some others on the lineup do too, but that covers all the ones playing any time soon.
ATP NY full lineup & set times HERE.

DOWNLOAD: Sleepy Sun - "Open Eyes" (MP3)
Sleepy Sun at ATP 2009 (more by Ryan Muir)
Sleepy Sun packed the room with fans that drove up from San Diego to catch them play old and new tunes. Playing a healthy mix of numbers off their previous CD "Embrace", their new release "Fever", and currently unreleased numbers, Sleepy Sun took the room willingly hostage into unknown musical terrain that fed the soul and ears.They killed it at ATP 2009, and now Sleepy Sun will return to the fest again in 2010 along with an accompanying NYC show on 9/6 with Sweet Apple and Sian Alice Group at Knitting Factory. Tickets are on sale. The show is part of an intersecting tour routing for Sleepy Sun and Sweet Apple. The one off date will serve as their only pairing before each moves in their own separate directions. Full tour skeds are below.
Slamming the jams with the supernova sound of "Marina" off of "Fever". This opening number cracked the paint of the walls with its forceful, magnifigant beats, electrifying Hendrix-guitar stylings, intense vocals, and eclectic arrangements. The band is at their best in this newer track because it showcases what they do well in previous numbers then tightens that up into a compact, yet skillfully accomplished piece of work.-[examiner review from July 23rd in LA]
Sleepy Sun have a new LP out now, Fever, via ATP Recordings. Dig on one track, "Open Eyes", from that LP above and check out the video for it and all tour dates below.

You Are Here (The Maze) is a performance festival in a sculptural maze taking place at Williamsburg's Death By Audio from September 10 - October 2, 2009. Emphasizing the sprawling and interconnected nature of New York's underground, a trip through the maze offers a peak inside NYC's diy art/music scene. A meditation on passage and desire, You Are Here engulfs the space and presents beckoning inhabitants, dead ends, and uplifting epitaphs. Medium and genre vary and overlapping and simultaneous performances are frequent, each performer establishing a different corner or dead end as his or hers.The lineup and installation is being put together by TROUBLE (Sam Hillmer & Laura Paris). Acts in the three-week schedule include Calvin Johnson, Screaming Females, Mick Barr, Ty Segal, Grooms, Extra Life and others.
Skeletons kick off the first night of the festival on September 10th as the Skeletons Big Band, a 12-piece band (expanded from their usual four) that's also playing September 7-9th at Roulette. There they'll be performing "New Works for a Larger Ensemble" which includes "excerpts and new arrangements from their record in progress "PEOPLE," a long form piece based around conversations in Greyhound busses and stations, and beyond..."
The full schedule for the Maze (and the lineup for Skeletons Big Band) is below...
Brooklyn label Social Registry is presenting the show at 92YTribeca in Manhattan tonight (3/27). Sian Alice Group, Lights, Zs, and a group we recently featured, Mountains are on the bill. Updated Mountains tour dates below.
Speaking of NYC shows happening tonight and Mountains... the Mountain Goats, and John Vanderslice are here for their show at the Society of Ethical Culture.
Also related to today (3/27)... Having just played a few shows at SXSW, including the official showcase of her (and the Mountain Goats') label 4AD, Los Angeles/Chicago's Anni Rossi is currently on tour and plays a show at Union Pool in Brooklyn tonight with Midnight Masses and Wild Yaks. You may have also caught Anni when she opened for her label-mates Camera Obscura at Mercury Lounge the other night.
To say that Anni Rossi has given new life to the viola is an understatement. Together with her alternative folk style and lilting vocals, Rossi has reinvented the way this classical instrument is typically used and given new light to how Americana music is structured and presented.In April, Anni will go out on tour with Noah and the Whale. That puts her back in NYC, and at Bowery Ballroom, on May 1st. Tickets are still on sale. All dates and a video below.

Currently in Europe, the California folk band known for beards and hanging out with Devendra Banhart is kicking off a North American tour in Philly on March 10th. They'll play the Sub Pop showcase at SXSW in Austin on March 19th (unlike the Thermals who will play the Kill Rock Stars showcase), and they'll keep going with only short breaks until they hit Pittsfield MA on May 17th. Tour partners include Sian Alice Group, Larkin Grimm, Richard Swift and Papercuts. They're playing with the latter on May 3rd at Bowery Ballroom (on sale Friday at noon), and on May 7th at the Bell House in Brooklyn (on sale soon).
The Papercuts track for download above is from their/his new album You Can Have What You Want, out April 14th on Gnomonsong. Gnomonsong is the record label formed by Devendra Banhart and Andy Cabic of Vetiver.

APTBS @ SSS (more by Jason Bergman)
A Place to Bury Strangers kicked off a tour with Sian Alice Group at Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn last night (9/15). Amazing Baby opened the show. Tonight the two bands are at the Paradise in Boston and they stay on the road together until October 22nd - right before APTBS meet back up with Amazing Baby in Philly and then play their next NYC show, for CMJ, at Bowery Ballroom. All dates below...
The Annex is advertising tonight's show as "730p Safari So Good/8:15p Mike Bones/9p Special Guest!!!/10p Growing" (Social Registry bill). Anyone know who the special guest is? Mike Bones' tour dates say he is playing with Sian Alice Group (a UK group also on Social Registry). Maybe they are the guest for whatever reason.
Growing's friends and fellow noise-niks Sightings are also playing a show tonight (Feb 13), but in Brooklyn - at Union Pool with True Primes, Sabir Maten, Andrew Barker, and Hill Greene. Growing are also opening for Boris March 4th at Knitting Factory. A bunch of tour dates and videos below....
