Little Dragon @ BVSXSW 2014 (more by Amanda Hatfield)

For all of tonight's shows, and tomorrow's, check out our NYC concert calendar.

Little Dragon, Lawrence Rothman @ Terminal 5
Little Dragon gave us more of the Swedish synth pop we know and love on this year's Nabuma Rubberband and tonight they kick off a sold-out 2-night run at NYC's Terminal 5. Theatrical LA musician Lawrence Rothman should get things off to an interesting start.

YJY, Tribal Days, The Big Easy, Ports of Spain, Malatese, Surfing, Gingerlys, Sharkmufin, Kissing Is A Crime, Beiju, The Veda Rays, Eastern Hollows, Water, Life Size Maps, Honduras @ 94 Evergreen (Slackfest)
The Slackgaze 'zine is throwing this three-day festival in Bushwick featuring 45 bands. Music starts at 3 PM.

Laura Stevenson, Not Blood, Paint, Tow3rs, Fascinator @ Brooklyn Night Bazaar
Laura Stevenson (playing full band tonight) last released Wheel in 2013, more of the punkish indie rock we've come to expect from her and her Don Giovanni labelmates.

Jail Weddings, Earl Boykins @ Cake Shop
One of the biggest rock bands in Los Angeles (literally, there's nine of them), Jail Weddings make grandiose psych-rock in the tradition of Lee Hazlewood or Scott Walker. It will be interesting seeing them crammed into Cake Shop's tiny stage.

Sleeping Bag, Rozwell Kid, Shark?, Parlor Walls @ Death by Audio
Bloomington, IN invades Brooklyn tonight as indie rock bands Sleeping Bag and Rozwell Kid hit DbA, and their hooky pop is well matched with locals Parlor Walls and Shark?

Dave Chappelle @ Radio City Music Hall
Comedian Dave Chappelle is back in a big way, doing a whopping nine 10 nights at Radio City Music Hall. This is the third.

Ought, The Yum Dee Days, Savants, Tiger Dare @ Rough Trade
Canadian band Ought are surfing on a fair amount of buzz - and Talking Heads comparisons. See what the fuss is all about tonight.

Breakdown, White Widows Pact, Manipulate, Heavy Chains @ Saint Vitus
NYHC vets Breakdown are still kicking. Their demo-era lineup played 2013's Black N Blue Bowl and now the band are set for another hometown show at Saint Vitus.

All Eyes West, Broadcaster, Easy Creatures @ The Acheron
Chicago's All Eyes West are a newer band but love the '90s (they've played hometown shows with Knapsack and Braid, and were produced by Jawbox's J Robbins). They were in town last night for a show with Pilot to Gunner, and tonight they headline their own show at the Acherno.

Kaiser Chiefs, Streets of Laredo @ Webster Hall
Ten years since "I Predict a Riot" and "Oh My God" catapulted them the stardom, the Kaiser Chiefs soldier on.

John Doe @ The Bell House
The frontman for X does a solo show tonight at The Bell House, supporting his new best-of collection. He'll be back with X in August.

Hot Tuna, Leon Russell, Jorma Kaukonen @ Westbury
Unlike the main members' other band, Jefferson Airplane, Hot Tuna have continued consistently for decades since their start as a band, and like fellow jam pioneers Phil Lesh or Allman Brothers, they've still got it.

'The Past is a Grotesque Animal' (of Montreal movie) @ IFC Center
Jason Miller's of Montreal documentary, The Past is a Grotesque Animal, is a very up-close, very personal look at the band and main man Kevin Barnes in particular.

Biblical, VBA @ Mercury Lounge
Toronto's Biblical make throwback psychedelic rock and proto-metal, and though there's no lack of this kinda thing, they're one of the bands doing it exceptionally well.

Statiqbloom, VoidVision, Phemale @ Coco 66
Statiqbloom is Fade Kainer of metal band Batillus' project that gives him a chance to make dancier music in the industrial/EBM realm.

Ivy, Tapehead, Chest Pain, Krallion @ Lulu's
NYC's Ivy make driving, attitude-filled punk as you can hear on their recent single for Katorga works, "Arch-Foe," which is streaming below. They're joined tonight by Rochester's Tapehead, Austin's Chest Pain and NYC's Krallion.

For laughs, check out the NYC Comedy calendar too.

Polica @ Radio City Music Hall in September (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Polica

Browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows. Here are some highlights...

Polica, Marijuana Death Squad @ Webster Hall
Polica's blend of folk-style songwriting with indie pop and R&B aesthetics is as great live as it is on record. They were recently here opening for The xx, but now you can catch them at a headlining show, as they taken on Webster Hall.

Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival
Tonight's the first full night of the multi-venue Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival (last night was the pre-show), and though all the shows should be great, our show of choice tonight is the one at Music Hall of Williamsburg which features one half of TNGHT, Lunice, Yeezus contributor Evian Christ, and upcoming rapper Rockie Fresh. Other BEMF shows include Erika, BMG, Souffront, Patrick Russell, Mike Servito, Bryan Kasenic @ 285 Kent Avenue, Sliink, Nadus, DJ Reck, Ezrakh, DJ Slow @ Glasslands, Letherette @ Villain and John Digweed, Naveen G, Mario Basanov, Nicholas Matar @ Output.

Mick Turner, Mike Wexler, Matteah Baim @ Union Pool
Dirty Three guitarist (among other things), Mick Turner, is set to release his new solo album, Don't Tell the Driver, on November 19 via Drag City which was recorded over the last four years, is a concept record and being described as a "post rock opera."

Os Mutantes, Capsula @ Le Poisson Rouge
Brazilian psychedelic legends Os Mutantes play tonight with fellow South American band Capsula.

Twin Peaks, Drowners, Gang of Youths @ Baby's All Right
Chicago's glammy garage rockers Twin Peaks played MHOW last night with Born Ruffians and tonight headline here (formerly listed as "Laura Palmers" and "Secret Guest"). This is also another chance to catch prettyboy pop-rock combo Drowners. Late night, Pearl Necklace's Bryce Hackford will DJ.

Widowspeak, Pure Bathing Culture, Spires @ Bowery Ballroom
Widowspeak just released a new EP, The Swamps, last week which offers up more of their spooky, whispery sounds. Tonight's show also features synthy Vetiver side project Pure Bathing Culture and Spires' paisley-colored pop.

The Low Anthem, Robert Ellis, Grandchildren @ Brooklyn Night Bazaar
The Brooklyn Night Bazaar is now open with free shows every weekend, and tonight's is from indie folk collective The Low Anthem. Robert Ellis, who's also on the bill, opened for Deer Tick in NYC last night.

Sinead O'Connor @ City Winery
This is the first of three sold-out shows at City Winery for the Irish singer.

The Business, The Welch Boys, 45 Adapters @ Mercury Lounge
UK Oi vets The Business play tonight, which could get wild like it did in 2011.

Sleeping Bag, Shark?, Rozwell Kid, Porches @ Silent Barn
This is a good bill, especially for anthemic Brooklyn garage rockers Shark? and the Exploding In Sound-signed Porches. Porches are about to release a split with LVL UP on 11/26 via Birdtapes/Double Double Whammy, and you can stream both sides of that below.

Tombs @ Saint Vitus in April (more by Caroline Harrison)
IMAGE


Tombs, Primitive Weapons, Empty Flowers, Anicon @ Saint Vitus
This is a great local metal bill, including two big hitters: the atmospheric Tombs and the post-harcore-leaning Primitive Weapons.

Hard Nips, Mean Creek, Life Size Maps, Haybaby, Butterscotch Stanley @ Shea Stadium
All-girl Japanese punk band Hard Nips, who are a lot of fun live, headline this overall good line-up of local acts.

Lucero, Titus Andronicus, The Menzingers @ Terminal 5
Fans of punk-tinged heartland rock/folk rock and vice versa shouldn't miss this show, because all three bands expertly deliver that sound.

Sunset Guns, Typefighter, Heeney, Black Mountain Revival @ The Grand Victory
The band we're most looking forward to on this bill is Typefighter, who make very good post-Weezer power pop.

Tiers, Dead Leaf Echo, The Harrow @ Cake Shop
Coldwave duo (and Cult of Youth-related) Tiers have their record release party which also features superior local shoegazers Dead Leaf Echo.

Polar Bear Club, Citizen, Diamond Youth, Sainthood Reps @ The Studio at Webster Hall
Polar Bear Club has taken out some pretty great openers for this tour, including the anthemic emo-punks Citizen, power poppers Diamond Youth, and post-hardcore rippers Sainthood Reps.

GAG, Shoxx, Goosebumps, Pleasure Industry, IVY @ Fitness
Olympia's GAG chug away with a heavier, thicker, and darker take on the kind of power chord riffage that's been in punk's repertoire since the earliest days of hardcore, and they've got a seriously maniacal vocalist. See what you're in for via the live video embedded below. This is also the last-ever show for Shoxx (whose drummer Elser Nino is also now in Merchandise), and local punk band Goosebumps are always worth catching too.

NY Comedy Festival
The 10th annual NY Comedy Fest is underway and tonight's shows include Maria Bamford, Bill Burr, and Charlie Murphy.

China Crisis @ Iridium
Liverpool's China Crisis took the '70s yacht rock aesthetic and brought it into the age of mid-'80s New Romantics. Their glossy pop still sounds pretty good today.

The Julie Ruin at Union Pool last month (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Julie Ruin

Browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows. Here are some highlights...

The Julie Ruin, Swearin' @ Bowery Ballroom
Kathleen Hanna, previously of Bikini Kill and Le Tigre, is back at the mic for a new band, The Julie Ruin (named after her 1998 solo album), who make a good mix of the sounds Kathleen has experimented with throughout her career. Their debut album is out today (have you streamed it?) and they're playing a sold-out show at Bowery Ballroom to celebrate. Openers Swearin' make scrappy, honest pop punk, and they're not to be missed either. The Julie Ruin will also be back for a Music Hall of Williamsbug show on October 25.

Beans, Pegasus Warning, Gobby, CX Kidtronik, The Juggs @ Glasslands
Abstract rapper Beans released his new collaborative EP with Mux Mool today, and he's celebrating that in Brooklyn with a release party at Glasslands. Mykki Blanco collaborator Gobby is worth seeing too.

Cy Dune, MEMS, Young and Often @ Pianos
Tonight Pianos hosts a number of musicians you're probably familiar with playing with projects you may be less familiar with. Seth Olinsky of Akron/Family headlines the night with his new riff-heavy project Cy Dune, Greg Saunier of Deerhoof is on the bill with his band MEMS, and Lorely Rodriguez (Empress Of) and Sam Owens (Celestial Shore) make up the duo Young and Often, who open the show.

Haim, IO Echo @ Webster Hall
Sibling trio Haim have spent most of the summer on the festival circuit, honing their live skills, doling out catchy, harmony-laden pop, and giving folks a taste of their debut album, Days Are Gone, which is out at the end of the month. Tonight's sold-out show is with IO Echo who you may have caught at Warm-Up over the long weekend.

The Music Tapes @ 133rd St. Arts Center Lab
Before Neutral Milk Hotel heads on tour, Julian Koster is doing one last run of shows for his band The Music Tapes at 133rd St. Arts Center Lab. Tonight's the dress rehearsal, and it's the first of five appearances this week. Free but RSVP is closed.

Andrew Cedermark, Big Search, Sleeping Bag @ Coco 66
One of the many ex-Titus Andronicus members, Andrew Cedermark has been operating as a solo artist for a few years now, and has a new album out this year.

Dr. Dog @ Mercury Lounge
Dr. Dog announced this show at the last minute and it sold right now, so if you've got tickets, you'll be getting a chance to see them in a pretty intimate environment before they tour with The Lumineers. Late show (10:30 PM).

Danny Brown, How To Dress Well, Speedy Ortiz @ NYU Mystery Show
This show is only open to those with an NYU student ID, and while the lineup is technically a mystery, clues have led us to believe the lineup is Danny Brown, How To Dress Well, and Speedy Ortiz.

For all of tonight's shows, and tomorrow's, check out our full NYC show calendar.

DOWNLOAD: Speedy Ortiz - "Silver Spring" (MP3)

Speedy Ortiz

As I've said before, new music releases start calming down around mid-December and it's a great time to check out stuff that went overlooked throughout the year. One release that dropped over the summer that I've been spinning a lot this past month is Speedy Ortiz's EP, Sports, which came out via Exploding In Sound Records. They hail from the growing Northampton/Amherst scene (which has also given us California X, Potty Mouth, and other great bands) and play the type of rock that pulls equally from punk and indie rock that's made a great comeback in 2012. Think The Breeders meets The Thermals with some noodley guitar and their own personal attitude thrown in and you've got a pretty good idea. The EP's a quick listen and it's got a very fully realized sound for a band that formed just over a year ago. You can stream the whole thing below and download the track "Silver Spring" for free at the top of this post.

Maybe you caught Speedy Ortiz when they toured through NYC last month? (They played two shows including one with Thurston Moore and John Moloney.) They've got a few shows scheduled for 2013 too including a NYC date which happens on February 23 at Cameo Gallery with Sleeping Bag and Shark?. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

A list of all dates and the EP stream are below...
