Joanna Gruesome @ CMJ 2013 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Perfect Pussy, Joanna Gruesome, Potty Mouth, Love of Everything @ Shea Stadium
UK noise popsters Joanna Gruesome will play a free show at the South Street Seaport on Friday, but if you'd like to see them somewhere much smaller (and hotter, sweatier, etc) and with a killer lineup that also includes noise punks Perfect Pussy, indie rockers Potty Mouth and the Joan of Arc-related The Love of Everything, Shea Stadium tonight is the place to be.
Cymbals Eat Guitars, Grooms, Bug Arms @ Baby's All Right
Cymbals Eat Guitars make some serious rock music on their new album, LOSE, which expands upon their already-solid sound and includes some of their best songs yet. The record's out today and this is the release show.
The Polyphonic Spree, Icewater @ Brooklyn Bowl
Cult, choir, or just a fun enormous rock band, The Polyphonic Spree are kind of hard to hate in the moment, even if you never want to listen to one of their albums.
Lair, Bugs and Rats, Skimask, Chat Logs @ Death By Audio
Massachusetts is in the house tonight with three Boston bands: experimental noisemakers Lair; nervy pop band Bugs and Rats; and Infinity Cat signees Skimask.
Drake, Lil Wayne @ PNC Bank Arts Center
Over the course of his three albums, Drake's evolved into someone capable of making some of the best modern pop songs in recent memory. His old pal Wayne co-headlines this show with him.
Cheap Trick @ The Paramount
Glammy powerpop heroes Cheap Trick are keeping the flame alive on tour this summer, stopping by Long Island's The Paramount tonight.
Yellowman @ BB King Blues Club
With hi natural flow (and sexually explicit lyrics) Jamaican dancehall deejay legend Yellowman is not just an influence in reggae -- his affect on American hip hop looms large as well.
For all of tonight's shows, and tomorrow's, check out our NYC concert calendar.
For laughs, check out the NYC Comedy calendar too.

"Like Noisem or Slutvomit (who also have a sweet record out this year), Oozing Wound juices up their thrash with ingredients from newer, scarier parts of the metal world. Where Noisem draws on death metal and Slutvomit borrows from black metal, these guys thicken their brew with sludge. The effect is like Slayer on an all-hamburger diet, or like High on Fire with a far larger thrash component. Incidentally, High on Fire is one of the three bands they list as an influence on their FB; the other two are Black Sabbath and...the Carpenters. Very funny, guys."Be sure to check out the whole spiel over at IO. Retrash comes out on 10/15 through Thrill Jockey (who are really digging into this metal stuff these days); preorder it here.
Oozing Wound are also gearing up for a run of East Coast/Midwestern North American dates. The tour hits New York City twice: first at Death By Audio on 10/30 with shoegaze trio The Dreebs, the gothy Pop 1280, and no wavers Sediment Club, and then again at Secret Project Robot on 11/3 with Guardian Alien (aka former Liturgy drummer Greg Fox), Skimask, and Child Abuse (who also play this week). No advance tickets for those shows.
Stream Oozing Wound's "Call Your Guy", watch a video of a second song ("Welcome to the Spaceship, Motherfucker"), and check out the full run of dates below...
Hunters at Bowery Ballroom in April (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Hunters will celebrate the album with a hometown release show at Death by Audio on October 11 with a few local regulars, Total Slacker, Skimask, and Sleepies. Not long after, they'll also be doing some CMJ shows, including the one on 10/15 at Cameo with PUP, Greys, Big Ups, Kirin J Callinan and Ovlov; and the Panache showcase on 10/17 at Baby's All Right (146 Broadway) with Speedy Ortiz, Ex-Cult, Calvin Love, Homeshake, and Big Ups. Flyer for the latter below.
In November, Hunters will kick off a full tour with Cali garage punks Audacity. That tour brings the two bands to NYC for a show on November 30 at Glasslands, which (like those CMJ shows) also includes an opening set from Brooklyn post-hardcore rippers Big Ups. Tickets for that show are on sale now. All dates are listed below.
Big Ups' debut LP, Eighteen Hours of Static, comes out January 14, and as usual they have a bunch of local shows coming up, including a lot during CMJ. All of their upcoming dates are listed below.
Meanwhile, Audacity is releasing a split 7" with The Coathangers on October 15 via Suicide Squeeze. The Coathangers recently revealed their contribution to the 7", "Adderall," which you can stream below. Their tour with Guitar Wolf hit NYC last night (9/29) at Santos. Anyone catch that show?

DOWNLOAD: Ed Schrader's Music Beat - "Radio Eyes" (MP3)
Baltimore floor tom/bass guitar duo Ed Schrader's Music Beat released the impressive Jazz Mind LP last year, and as mentioned, this year they contributed a track to the excellent Sub Pop 1000 compilation. Their track is the post-punk ripper "Radio Eyes," which shifts back and forth between razor-sharp bass lines and shouted vocals to softly-sung melancholic passages. The duo made a video for the track, which you can watch below, and you can also download a free MP3 of the song above (via Gimme Tinnitus).
Ed Schrader's Music Beat seem to love coming to Brooklyn to play Death by Audio, and you'll have two chances to see them do that this month. First, they play the Brooklyn venue this Tuesday (5/14) with Hemlock Ernst (aka Sam Herring of Future Islands, who Ed Schrader released a split with), Human Pippi Armstrong, and Adventure. Then, ESMB will return to DBA on May 25 for a show with Guerilla Toss, Skimask, and Bugs & Rats. Admission for both shows is $7 at the door. Those are the only two shows for the band that we're currently aware of.
JEFF the Brotherhood at ATP NYC 2012 (more by Adela Loconte)
JEFF the Brotherhood are on tour now with Delta Spirit and FIDLAR and that tour hits NYC TONIGHT (11/27) at Irving Plaza. Tickets for tonight's show are still available and we're also giving away a few pairs. Details on how to enter the contest are below.
JEFF spoke to us about their favorite music of the year and gave us a list of their top ten albums. Some of the bands on the list (like Diarrhea Planet and Heavy Cream and Skimask and Cy Barkley) are on their Infinity Cat label, but that doesn't mean we don't believe them. Check out the full list below...
