Sinden and Fake Blood (photo via @gsinden)
Fake Blood (aka UK producer and DJ Theo Keating) makes fun/quirky dance music and will release The Science EP next week (12/15). You can stream two of the three tracks below. He's going on a DJ tour with fellow Brit Sinden that will hit NYC on Saturday (12/13) at Slake. Alex English is also spinning and tickets are on sale now. All dates are listed below.
As for Sinden, who worked with Mykki Blanco last year, he's recently been releasing music under the The Crystal System banner, which will be a series of collaborations. New single "Got Me Moving" is a collaboration with Fritz and SYF and you can stream that below.

The Soupcans @ Bowery Ballroom, 2013 (more by Dylan Johnson)
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Cherry Glazerr, Sunflower Bean, GYMSHORTS, Roya @ Baby's All Right
LA high school trio Cherry Glazerr released their debut album, Haxel Princess, this spring on notoriously party-friendly Burger Records. It's glitter-dappled, punky pop that's not scared to throw attitude or a Big Riff in your face.
Dick Dale, Screamin' Rebel Angels @ Brooklyn Bowl
The self-proclaimed King of Surf Guitar will bring "Miserlou" and boatload of other instrumental hits (his and other folks') to Brooklyn Bowl tonight.
Outside World, Roses, Wreaths, The Yin Yangs @ Cake Shop
While veteran actor Abe Vigoda is still with us, the LA group named after him is no more, quietly dissolving a while back. Guitarist Juan Velazquez has formed Roses, a trio who will release their debut EP via Group Tightner on August 5. Roses aren't miles away from what Abe Vigoda did, making dark, danceable post-punk-influenced pop.
Dr. John and the Night Trippers, Hurray for the Riff Raff @ Central Park Summerstage
With over forty years of New Orleans R&B under his belt, Dr. John needs no introduction and his most recent album, 2012's Dan Auerbach-produced Locked Down, is a late-career standout. Making this a cool double bill, much newer band Hurray for the Riff Raff open with their authentic-sounding Americana.
The Soupcans, Pampers, Ultrathin, Chat Logs @ Death By Audio
Canada's noisy Soupans take the sarcasm, anger, and weirdness that began filtering into post-hardcore via late period Black Flag and The Jesus Lizard, but speed things back up to the genre's early days.
Daniele Baldelli, Charanjit Singh, Simian Mobile Disco, Hiro Kone, Maria Chavez @ MoMA PS1
Warm Up continues today with another excellent lineup. This time its Italian Cosmic Disco pioneer Daniele Baldelli, Indian electronic music pioneer Charanjit Singh, UK duo Simian Mobile Disco, former Effi Briest and Up Died Sound member Hiro Kone, and the Software-signed Maria Chavez.
Simian Mobile Disco (DJ Set), JDH, Dave P @ Cameo Gallery
After their Warm Up set, SMD hit Cameo for a late-night DJ set.
Nine Inch Nails, Soungarden, Dillinger Escape Plan @ PNC Bank Arts Center
Relive 1994 with two of alternative rock's biggest bands who both put out seminal albums on the same day that year. Cool openers on this tour too. Tonight it's math-core greats The Dillinger Escape Plan.
Jurassic 5, Dilated Peoples, The Beat Junkies @ Best Buy Theater
It's a night of late-'90s-era conscious rap, headlined by California's great Jurassic 5 who reunited last year after calling it quits in 2007.
Kes the Band, KIT @ Prospect Park Bandshell
The free Celebrate Brooklyn shows at Prospect Park continue with this one which is headlined by Trinidad and Tobago's Kes the Band. Also of note is "tambutronic" group KiT who are sure to get people moving.
The Baseball Project, The Minus 5 @ Rough Trade
The high-concept rock band formed by Scott McCaughey (Young Fresh Fellows/REM) and Steve Wynn (Dream Syndicate) released their third album, titled 3rd, back in March. The record, which also features R.E.M.'s Peter Buck and Mike Mills plus drummer Linda Pitmon, hits on more stories from America's Pastime, including songs about Babe Ruth, Hank Aaron,Lenny Dykstra, and acid-tripping pitcher Dock Ellis.
Slavve @ Rough Trade
Local guitar/drum duo Slavve include a former member of Surfer Blood and Weird Wives, and they make quality lo-fi rock that hits pretty hard.
United Nations, Frameworks, Descender, Pagan Girls @ Saint Vitus
United Nations began as a side project for Geoff Rickly to make extremely heavier music than his main band while he was still in Thursday. Now that that band has called it quits, Geoff is putting a lot more time into United Nations, and even if he insists the project is an elaborate joke poking fun at punk rock, it sounds like one hell of a serious punk rock band. Openers Frameworks pull from a similar type of post-hardcore that UN do (and they probably pull a bit from Thursday as well), and they make this a good double bill.
Sinkane, Takuya Kuroda @ The Lot in Long Island City
This is the kickoff event for The Lot LIC Music & Film series which brings free music every Saturday and free movies every Thursday. DFA signed Sinkane, who has a new album out next month, headlines. Free, starts at 3 PM.
The Hotelier, Foxing, Prawn @ The Studio at Webster Hall
This is a great double bill from two lyrically powerful but very different sounding rock bands. The Hotelier echo the early '00s emo of Brand New and Taking Back Sunday, but their songs are discussing different matters than those bands. Foxing sound like The Antlers if they screamed sometimes, and their live show is one that just has to be seen. Openers Prawn do Kinsella-style emo well and they're worth catching as well.
Mark Eitzel, Anders Parker, Death Vessel @ The Wick
The early show at The Wick is a good night for singer/songwriters with American Music Club's Mark Eitzel, Jay Farrar/Jim James collaborator Anders Parker, and falsetto-tinged indie folk singer Death Vessel.
Paul Johnson, Egyptrixx, Sinden @ The Wick
After the Mark Eitzel show, The Wick takes a turn for the electronic, with this stacked bill of dance producers.
Jessica Pratt, Mike Wexler @ Union Pool
Union Pool's Summer Thunder series continues today with free music in the venue's backyard. Today's lineup is two modern artists who recall the sounds of late '60s/early '70s psychedelic folk, and they both do it really well. Should feel just right outdoors as long as the weather's nice. Bands usually start around 4 PM.
Noothgrush, Ruine, Show of Bedlam, Grudges @ Acheron
Noothgrush put out high quality sludge for most of the '90s, before going on their initial hiatus in 2001. The band have been active again for a while now, most recently releasing a covers LP that took on Pink Floyd, Celtic Frost, Duran Duran and more. Tonight's their second of two NYC shows this week.
Container, Ahlzagailzehguh, Brown Recluse Alpha, Kcidgod, Dark Sister, Max Eilbacher, MV Carbon, Dysgenix @ Red Light District
Rob Schofield, the abrasive noise producer better known as Container, returned with an excellent new album, Adhesive, this year and the live show sounds as wonderfully anti-social as the record. He plays as part of Burning Fleshtival V which promises "Music, Performance and Comedy" at the Far Rockaways space.
Diane Birch, Secret Someones, 5j Varrow, Prettiots, Poor Remy @ Brooklyn Night Bazaar
The Deli has been zine-ing the scene for ten years and are celebrating the anniversary this weekend with shows at Brooklyn Night Bazaar.
For all of tonight's shows, and tomorrow's, check out our NYC concert calendar.
For laughs, check out the NYC Comedy calendar too.

Mark Eitzel, leader of seminal indie rock/slowcore band American Music Club, hasn't put out new music in a couple years now, but he's touring as we speak. The tour comes to Brooklyn on Saturday (8/2) at The Wick for what will be a pretty solid night of singer/songwriters with Jay Farrar/Jim James collaborator Anders Parker and falsetto-driven indie folk singer Death Vessel. Tickets for that show are on sale now. All of Mark's dates, including one with Stephin Merrit and another with Thalia Zedek, are listed below.
The Wick show is an 8 PM show, and after that Paul Johnson, Egyptrixx, Sinden and Doctor Jeep will take over the venue for a late-night dance party which begins at 11. Tickets for that show are available too.
All Mark Eitzel dates are listed, with videos of all three artists on that Wick show, below...

Egyptrixx - 'A/B Til Infinity'
Toronto electronic musician Egyptrixx released his new album, A/B Til Infinity, last month (11/26) via Night Slugs, and it can be streamed in all its atmospheric and space-age synthy glory on RDIO. He'll celebrate that album when he makes the NYC debut of his A/V show (but not his NYC debut in general) at Glasslands on January 3. Sinden is co-headliner with Judge Wise (Brooklyn Bass) opening, and tickets are on sale now.
Another notable electronic show at Glasslands is jazzy UK producer Floating Points' return to NYC when he plays the venue on January 17 with Phil South and Love on the Run. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

G-Side @ Purchase Fall Fest
Though it has been announced elsewhere already, we're excited to announced that G-side will be playing at least one BrooklynVegan presented show in December (stay tuned for the possibility of another). The announced show is taking place on December 6 at Glasslands in Brooklyn with Mr. Muthafuckin eXquire and Cities Aviv also on the spectacular bill. Tickets are on sale now. It's one of many dates they just announced. They're all listed below.
Back before Fun Fun Fun Fest (where multiple BVers said they were awesome), G-Side (who also played Pitchfork Fest) played SUNY Purchase Fall Fest on Saturday (10/29) (after playing a last minute show at 285 Kent the night before). The G-Side guys bring one DJ and two extremely talented R&B singers on stage with them for what ends up being much more than just rapping to a backing track. At Purchase there was tons of interaction between those on stage and the audience. They got the entire Fall Fest crowd bouncing, moving it to the left, and whatever other moves they brought with them, chanted "Ain't no party like a Purchase party," and by the end of the set both rappers ended up in the crowd. They ended with an unplanned encore of "How Far," which samples Beach House's "10 Mile Stereo." Pictures from their Fall Fest set are in this post.
More of them, with all tour dates, and a collaboration with UK DJ/Producer Sinden that you can listen to, below...

"Last night I went with some friends to see Crystal Castles at Terminal 5 for HARD Summer Tour and it was an awesome show. Sinden, Destructo, and JDH & Dave P opened and I have never seen so much sweat in my life. Alice Glass fell on me."

Crystal Castles @ ATP NY (more by Ryan Muir)
Crystal Castles will be playing NYC's Irving Plaza on April 14th with Pictureplane (and LA on April 12th). Tickets for that are gone, but now there are many more chances to see - love them or hate them - the electro duo. They'll be on tour in Europe with dates scattered throughout April, June and July, and then this August they'll be headlining a HARD Fest-organized tour along with Rusko, Sinden and Destructo. The tour's LA stop (at Los Angeles State Historic Park) happens on August 7th and also includes Soulwax, Diplo, Tiga, Digitalism, and Green Velvet on the bill. The tour comes to Terminal 5 in NYC on August 21st. Stay tuned for tickets. All dates below.
And yes that's the same HARD Fest (and the same Destructo) who were just at the same NYC venue with Major Lazer and Boyz Noise and...
More pictures Zach Stern took at Saturday's show (like the above), at the link.
HARD Fest is hosting other shows (that Destructo is also playing) this summer too. M.I.A. is playing two of them - one in LA (with "JOKER, Rye Rye, Theophilus London, 12th Planet, Borgore, Ninjasonik, Nguzunguzu, Gaslamp Killer, Destructo & much much more TBA") on July 17th, and one in NYC at Governors Island (with "Sleigh Bells, Theophilus London, Skream, Benga, Ninjasonik, 12th Planet, Nguzunguzu, Borgore, Destructo & much much more TBA") on July 24th (tickets).

Balcony climbin' @ Hard Summer '09 in L.A. Saturday night (downtownlobby)
A back door of the VIP section, where tickets began at $125, flew open and fans ran in from the parking lot in what [concert-goer Will] Fan described as a "stampede."Hard Summer '09 @ L.A. Forum (beltran)
"We saw about 200 kids run right through the bar area," said the 35-year-old Sherman Oaks resident. "It was a little scary. I saw the bartender push one kid down, but everyone else just ran around him. Eventually, security was able to stop more people from coming in. But the kids ran out of the bar...and basically hopped over the balcony and onto the floor. Then the music stopped."
The sold-out all-night Hard Summer concert, which featured a lineup that included U.K. dance duo Underworld and Canadian electronic rockers Crystal Castles, was halted at about 10:50 p.m., according to the Los Angeles County Fire Department, which cited "hazardous life-safety things taking place inside the event."
"We were required to shut down Hard Summer at The Forum Saturday [August 8th] night by the Los Angeles County Fire Department. They declared the event a "hazard" after seeing concert-goers jumping from the balcony to the floor. The Inglewood Police Department backed the decision of the Fire Department and assisted in clearing the venue.Underworld and Chromeo were among those who were supposed to play.
While we, the promoters, worked with the authorities to consider other options to continue the concert, ultimately they made the decision to end it. We are happy to report that there were no major injuries.
We are offering refunds to all concert-goers and are deeply disappointed that the fans were not able to see this incredible show come to fruition." [official statement]

DJ Reid Speed @ Studio B - December 31, 2008 (CRED)
On New Years Eve I ended my two week long dance-less streak, arriving to a very full and fun Studio B whose NYE bash was in full swing at 1am. Sinden was already on, but I didn't really have a chance to get pay attention because I lost my jacket and was spent the first hour I was there looking for it. I temporarily gave up the search so I could hit the floor and attempt to enjoy the music. The timing was great as I was able to catch Jokers' of the Scene's set right from the beginning which was a wonderful, upbeat, thumping, crunchy, well-balanced mix of mostly new stuff - I recognized maybe 5% of their set which is becoming more and more rare.
After Jokers, Reid Speed played a good set that was a lot of fun incorporating some current electro with old favorites (ie Prodigy), some Nintendo samples, and total oddballs (Diddy/whatever he's calling himself now - Bad Boy For Life) which worked surprisingly well. The ridiculous bill for the evening was far from over, but the dj (who I didn't recognize) after Reid's set started playing a lot of Jungle which I wasn't into, so I called it an early night (for New Years Eve anyway).
Bjork & Antony @ Apollo Theater, NYC - May 2007 (more)
Tickets go on sale Friday for an October 16th Antony & The Johnsons show at the legendary Apollo Theater in NYC. Last time I saw Antony at the Apollo, he was singing "The Dull Flame of Desire" with Bjork. In related news...
Björk releases the new single 'The Dull Flame of Desire' on September 29th 2008 through One Little Indian Records.More info on that Bjork single, and all Antony tour dates, below...
Flooded with melancholic passion and restrained hope, 'The Dull Flame of Desire' sees Björk accompanied on vocals by Antony Hegarty from Antony & The Johnsons. Antony joined Björk onstage at her recent Hammersmith live shows and sang 'Dull Flame' to showstopping effect. 'The duet seemed unsurpassable - the pair's distinctive vocals brought to life against brass, transfixing the crowd' The Independent April 15th...

Sinden at Hiro Ballroom, NYC - April 10, 2008 (Nicky Digital)
Lately I've hit a spell where deejays I am really looking forward to seeing are very disappointing. Last weekend the spell continued...
Saturday I was quite excited to see Justice's Xavier de Rosnay deejay at Le Royale. I'd had a great time hearing him drop a mix of very current dance music with tons of unexpected pop and classics at Studio B following the Oct. 20th Justice show at Terminal 5. Unfortunately something was missing at Le Royale on Saturday. For the most part his set can be broken down like this - the first hour was mainly electro tracks, the second was mainly pop. Things could have been a lot better if more of the electro and pop were played together, and if more new electro tracks were played - I still love the Soulwax remix of Justice's Phantom Part II, but I remember first getting really excited about that track last April.
Thursday night saw the same problem with Steve Aoki dropping all the standard electro fare, heard over and over for the past year. I left mid-set which I am pretty reluctant to do, but it honestly was that bad. Thankfully the night wasn't a complete wash as Sinden spun an intensely banging set of grimey, UK-styled tunes that had everybody losing it. A-trak's set that followed was good as well, but a little less intense. For me the highlight of his set was when he dropped the Fred Falke Remix of Golden Cage by The Whitest Boy Alive (download it above).
