CocoRosie at MHOW in 2010 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
The Tinderbox Music Festival, whose mission is to showcase innovative female artists and donate 100% of the proceeds to organizations empowering women in music, is returning to NYC this year, and unlike 2010's at Southpaw and 2011's at Knitting Factory, this year it takes place at the much larger Webster Hall on November 11 and CocoRosie will be headlining. No other details have been announced yet, so stay tuned for more to come.
There will also be a fundraiser for the festival which happens on September 13 at The Lounge at Wework (177 Lafayette St at Grand St) with Nellie McKay, Alyson Greenfield, and Dawn Landes' band The Bandana Splits. $50 tickets for the fundraiser are on sale now. The flier for the fundraiser is below.
CocoRosie resurfaced this year with a new single on Touch & Go (for whom the release was also a comeback). If you haven't heard the Dave Sitek-produced "We Are On Fire" or its Antony-featuring b-side, "Tearz for Animals," you can check them both out below.

Alex Winston at Santos in June (more by David Andrako)
Alex Winston has been doing a good deal of touring behind her debut album, King Con, this year. She's kept pretty quiet since her last tour wrapped up earlier this summer, but has just squeezed in a NYC show which happens this week. It's part of the 'School Night!' monthly shows at The Bowery Hotel (335 Bowery) and goes down at the Manhattan venue this Friday (8/24) with Angela McCluskey, Bandana Splits (Dawn Landes' band), and DJ sets by Mat Devine and Computer Magic. Admission is totally free with RSVP. Doors are at 9 PM and you must be 21+ to enter. The flier for the show is below.
If you haven't heard King Con, it's a really solid album that operates in a similar realm of indie/pop crossover to Feist and the more anthemic Arcade Fire songs, and also throws in a bit of sugary Passion Pit falsettos and Joanna Newsom quirk. I've caught her live a few times too, and the show doesn't disappoint -- Alex is a totally confident, fun, and charismatic performer. You can stream King Con in full over at SPIN, and watch a couple live videos below.
"there are certain emotions in your body that not even your best friend can sympathize with , but you will find the right film or the right book , and it will understand you . "- Bjork
