Rat Fist
Rat Fist

You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...

Beverly, Future Punx, Wildhoney @ Baby's All Right
Beverly's debut album, Careers, is full of effortlessly catchy indie pop (think prime Kim Deal) and is celebrated tonight with help from new wave revivalists Future Punx and Wildhoney.

Say Anything, The Front Bottoms, The So So Glos, You Blew It! @ Best Buy Theater
Say Anything are out supporting their new album and they've brought some pretty excellent openers along: NJ lyrical folk/pop punks The Front Bottoms, NYC power poppy punks The So So Glos, and Florida '90s emo lovers You Blew It!.

Phony PPL, Toki Wright, Tracee Owo, Allan Kingdom @ Brooklyn Night Bazaar
Brooklyn Night Bazaar offers weekends of local artisan shopping, gourmet eats, beer and wine, ping pong, black light minigolf and music all under one Greenpoint roof.

The English Beat @ City Winery
If you aren't too concerned that Dave Wakeling is the only original member of the band, and don't mind hearing General Public songs too, you'll probably have a good time singing along to "Save it for Later," "Mirror in the Bathroom" and "Tenderness."

Rat Fist (mems No Age, Pissed Jeans), Pampers, Francisco Franco, Tom Blacklung @ Death by Audio
Rat Fist is the new band of No Age guitarist Randy Randall and Pissed Jeans drummer Sean McGuinness, and they make the kind of noisy racket you'd expect from members of No Age and Pissed Jeans. Tonight's their first of two NYC shows, both in tiny venues where stuff like this belongs.

A/JUS/TED, Dimitri From Paris, Pantha Du Prince (live), DJ Spoko @ MoMA PS1
As always, Warm Up brings tons of forward thinking electronic music (and some other stuff like rap, indie pop, etc) to MoMA PS1's courtyard for very hot, very popular all-day dance parties. Tonight's the first show of this year's series with a typically great and eclectic lineup.

Young Magic, Doe Paoro, Rioux, Doldrums (DJ set) @ Rough Trade
Young Magic are from Brooklyn but exist in a sexy dreamworld where Sade and the Cocteau Twins work on records together. Or something like that. Their new album, Breathing Statues, came out in May.

Sargeist, One Tall One Head, Typhus, Forteresse, Sacrament Ov Impurity @ Saint Vitus
Martyrdoom III, the third annual five-day metal festival at Brooklyn's Saint Vitus, is on day 2 with Finnish black metal greats Sargeist.

ONO, Obnox, Cloud Becomes Your Hand, The Dreebs @ Shea Stadium
Obnox is one of the many projects of Cleveland punk musician Lamont Thomas, but while he usually drums, for this one he takes the lead and brings elements of soul, R&B, hip hop and more into it too.

Shady Hawkins, Mannequin Pussy, Free Pizza, Acidosis @ Silent Barn
NYC punks Mannequin Pussy have been regulars on the local scene for a while now, but have just signed to Tiny Engines who are releasing their new album of whiplash punk.

Drive-By Truckers, The Hold Steady @ The Paramount
The Hold Steady and Drive-By Truckers both recently released new albums, and both will be on their own tours this summer. Their paths intersect for two co-headlining NY-area shows, this being the first.

Gameface, Restorations, Habits @ The Studio at Webster Hall
Gameface were one of the early/influential post-hardcore bands of Revelation Records back in the '90s, and now they're reunited and put out their first album since 2003 this year. Opening this show is great newer band Restorations.

Infest, Paint It Black, Replica, Ajax @ The Wick
Speaking of influential punk bands, powerviolence pioneers Infest are also reunited and on their second of two NYC shows tonight (their first ever here). Philly greats Paint It Black make this an unstoppable double bill for hardcore.

IIII, Highlife, Brian Degraw (DJ) @ Union Pool (Summer Thunder)
If you like drums, you'll want to hit Union Pool's weekly free Saturday outdoor party, today featuring IIII which is Hisham Akira Bharoocha(Soft Circle / Boredoms), Ryan Sawyer (Lonewolf), Brian Chase (Yeah Yeah Yeahs) and Ben Vida. Bands usually start around 4PM.

Azealia Banks @ Capitale
It's NYC Pride Week and part of the celebrations include tonight's show from Azealia Banks. Maybe she'll play stuff from her upcoming album (lol).

Luciano, Sandra St. Victor @ Prospect Park Bandshell
Reggae is the theme of this evening's Celebrate Brooklyn! concert, featuring roots worshiper Luciano and The Family Stand's Sandra Sat. Victor.

Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Stagnant Pools @ MHOW
Clap Your Hands Say Yeah may be missing much of the lineup they began with, and this once-buzzy band is buzzy no longer, but they do still make quality indie rock. Opening are Stagnant Pools who are a little shoegazy and also probably own the first two Strokes albums.

Del Close Marathon
It's Upright Citizens Brigade's annual three-day fest with over 420 comedy performances. A $30 wristband gets you into as many as you can muster.

Sam Sparro, Ultra Nat?, Kevin Aviance, Alfa Anderson, Luci Martin, Norma Jean Wright (ex-Chic) @ Central Park Summerstage
It's a big disco night at Summerstage bileld "Club Classics Live!" with a number of veterans.

Pearson Sound, Vissacoor, Teengirl Fantasy, Rrose, Sinjin Hawke, Aquarian @ 88 Palace
It's a big dance party night in Chinatown with this stacked Sick Magic-presented bill.

Jimmy Edgar, Lauren Flax, Braille @ Output (roof)
It's another afternoon (3 PM) dance party on the roof at Output, and a pretty good lineup all around.

Primus @ Stone Pony
Get your bass face ready because four-string wizard Les Claypool and the rest of the Primus crew are back in town for two area shows, this being the second.

Avicii @ Barclays Center
Avicii's in town, prepare for the streets of Brooklyn to be flooded with kids on molly after this one ends. (And be safe guys!)

Ringo Deathstarr in Austin in 2012 (more by Tim Griffin)
Ringo

You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...

Ringo Deathstarr, Heaven, Harsh Vibes, Residual Kid @ Baby's All Right
A night off of their tour with Peter Murphy, noisy Austinites Ringo Deathstarr make time for a headlining show. These three do post-MBV shoegaze about as well as anyone, with a strong pop sense as well.

Willie Nelson, Alison Krauss & Union Station, Kacey Musgraves @ Radio City Music Hall
Country legend and activist Willie Nelson remains active at 81 years young, and any chance to see him is still a good one. Opening the show are mid-'80s era veteran (and onetime Robert Plant collaborator) Allison Krauss and Kacey Musgraves whose newest album Same Trailer Different Park got love from NPR, SPIN and the Grammys.

Honduras, Venetia Fair, Sharkmuffin, Desert Sharks @ Cake Shop
Honduras bring a lot of different influences to the table. A little garage, yes, but there's '80s/'90s British indie too. While it may not be anything you haven't exactly heard before, Honduras write very hooky songs and, as importantly, the bring a real energy to the performance.

Tyvek, Sleepies, Red Dawn II, Mr. Transylvania @ Death by Audio
Tightly wound Detroit noise unit Tyvek have been quiet of late -- something not usually associated with them -- as their most recently release was the Domestic Five cassette in 2013. Perhaps we'll find out what they've been up to

Lorna Dune, Bryce Hackford, Master Class, Brian Traister @ Glasslands
Brooklyn's Lorna Dune (real name Lorna Krier) makes electronic music that sounds good in headphones but should get a dancefloor moving too.

Die Antwoord, DJ Cindy Kim @ Irving Plaza
Do u fink Die Antwoord's freeky and like them a lot? Head to Irving Plaza tonight.

First Aid Kit @ Rough Trade
Swedish duo FIrst Aid Kit make more haunting folk pop on their new major label debut, Stay Gold, which comes out today. To get into this you have to be one of the first 300 people to purchase the album from the Rough Trade NYC store starting today at 11 AM.

Grim Reaper, Fantom Warrior, Iron Force @ Saint Vitus
Grim Reaper may have not gained the popularity of some of their other falsetto-streaked NWOBHM peers, but all three of their albums are rippers and they've deservedly earned some cult status. The band, led by vocalist Steve Grimmett (the solo original member) kick off a 2-night run at Brooklyn's Saint Vitus tonight. They're also promising a new album. Needless to say, these shows should get interesting.

Curtis Harding @ Mercury Lounge
Atlanta's Curtis Harding made a strong impression at SXSW where his "magnetism, pipes and chops were evident from note one." The guy's the real deal. Check out his debut album, Soul Power, which is out now on Burger. This is his first of two NYC shows.

The Dreebs, Sunflower Bean, Big Neck Police @ Silent Barn
The Dreebs aim for sheer ear attack and hit their target like an elephant gun. Sunflower Bean, meanwhile, make melodic psych-pop with a lot of charm.

Worlds Fair, Two-9, Cities Aviv, Aaron Cohen @ The Studio at Webster Hall
Queens rap crew World's Fair and Atlanta rap crew Two-9 are on tour together, and tonight they come to World's Fair's home city, for what should undoubtedly be a great double bill. Alt-rapper Cities Aviv and Golden Era worshipper Aaron Cohen (stream his album) are worth catching too.

Jeremy Messersmith, Big Scary @ Bowery Ballroom
Glassnote-signed pop-folk musician Jeremy Messersmith headlines Bowery Ballroom tonight, and if you're going we think it's worth catching Australian Barsuk signees Big Scary.

Seun Kuti & Egypt 80, Rich Medina @ Highline Ballroom
The youngest son of Fela Kuti, Seun leads his late father's band, Egypt 80, as part of the Blue Note Jazz Festival.

Commander Cody @ Hudson Square Music & Wine Festival
The Hudson Square Music & Wine Festival happens every Tuesday through August 26 in the back parking lot behind NYC venue City Winery with free, all ages shows from 5 to 7:30 PM. Today's is with long-running (since the late '60s) country rocker Commander Cody.

Boot Camp Clik, CJ Fly, T'Nah Apex, Raz Fresco, Chelsea Reject @ Betsy Head Park (Summerstage, FREE)
This show, co-sponsored by us at BrooklynVegan, is the Duck Down BBQ which fill feature quality old school hip hop from the Boot Camp Clik (aka Buckshot, Smif N Wessun, Sean Price & Rock of Heltah Skeltah), plus two members of Pro Era (CJ Fly and T'Nah Apex) and more. Starts at 6 PM, free admission and free food.

Max Silvestri @ Littlefield
Longtime host of free NYC comedy show Big Terrific, funnyman Max Silvestri releases his first album, King Piglet, this week and he celebrates at this show tonight. Nick Turner and Kate Berlant will also be on hand, as well as some "Very Special Guests."

And just a heads up, the NYC-area will be loaded with brown flip flops tonight, as Jack Johnson is playing Prospect Park and Dave Matthews will be at PNC Bank Arts Center.

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

Oneida at The Yard in 2008 (more by Chris La Putt)
Oneida

Long-running Brooklyn band Oneida have been relatively quiet as of late, but they are still at it having played a hometown gig this past fall, and they've now get another one coming up on January 31 at Knitting Factory. Opening is two newer Brooklyn bands: noise rockers The Dreebs and percussive experimental trio Tigue (featuring members of Jherek Bischoff collaborators Contemporaneous Ensemble and Damon Albarn collaborators Ensemble Signal). Tickets for the show are on sale now.

Streams/videos from all three artists below...

MGMT at Fun Fun Fun Fest 2013 (more by Sarah Frankie Linder)
MGMT

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

MGMT, Dinosaur Jr., Kuroma @ Barclays Center
MGMT have gone from indie pop stars to weird psych explorers to even weirder psych explorers, and while their more recent material has tons of value (Congratulations is my personal favorite of their records, for what it's worth), it's definitely the strength of those earlier singles that has allowed them to play a venue as big as Barclays Center. So you can probably count on tons of fans wondering what the hell is going on in between "Time to Pretend" and "Kids." Also, the legendary Dinosaur Jr. opens this show, so if you're going, be sure to show up on time for them.

Factory Floor, Cities Aviv, Yvette @ 285 Kent Avenue
After four years of teasing us with singles and EPs, UK trio Factory Floor finally released their self-titled debut album this year. Like their other work, it's rooted in Detroit techno and acid, but with a stark, post-punk outlook. Live, don't expect an exact representation of the album -- the band rip up their songs live, with live drums and electronics played on the fly. Tonight's show is pretty solid with Cities Aviv and Yvette on the bill too. Sold out, but a few tickets will be available at the door if you get there early.

Run The Jewels, White Mandingos, Phony PPL @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
One of the most flat-out fun and totally raw rap albums of the year was Run The Jewels, the collaborative project of El-P and Killer Mike, both fresh off two killer 2012 solo albums (Killer Mike's was produced by El-P). Their live shows are just as fun, and they comprise material off all three of those albums and more. They just played Webster Hall, so in the smaller Music Hall of Williamsburg, this should be a blast.

Mutoid Man, Manalive, Summoner @ Saint Vitus Bar
The the epic Cave In and the insane Converge are both incredible bands, and Mutoid Man puts the singer of the former with the drummer of the latter. Together, they manage to keep some of the epicness, some of the insanity, and they give it a huge dose of party rock for great results. They rip.

!!!, Holy Fuck @ Webster Hall
Now based all over the globe, dancepunk group !!! made their best record in ages with this year's Thr!!!er. They're always fun live, and Canadians Holy Fuck should get the party started right.

Diarrhea Planet, Porches, Designer, No Regret's Coyote @ Barnard College
For Barnard College's WBAR Winter Formal (aka Space Prom), they've brought in a few rockin' bands, including garage punk ragers Diarrhea Planet (whose live show is one to remember), and "bummer pop" Exploding In Sound signees Porches.

Salt Cathedral, Truest, Sasha Carlson, Bleeding Rainbow, Brendan Rivera @ Pianos
Philadelphia band Bleeding Rainbow's Yeah Right was one of the year's most underrated records, a roaring album that mixed punk and shoegaze and big choruses. Also on the bill tonight: Sasha Carlson of UK band Splashh.

NGUZUNGUZU, L-Vis 1990, secret guest @ Glasslands
Nguzunguzu have lent their production to Kelela, Le1f, and others, and they make some pretty cool stuff on their own too. Catch them tonight with Night Slugs label boss L-Vis 1990 and a "secret guest."

Small Black, Twintapes, Brothertiger, Lip Talk @ Brooklyn Night Bazaar
Brooklyn Night Bazaar offers weekends of local artisan shopping, gourmet eats, beer and wine, ping pong, black light minigolf and music all under one Greenpoint roof. Tonight's musical entertainment is headlined by synthpop band Small Black.

Telepathe, Living Days, Village Psychic, Roxy Cottontail (DJ) @ Baby's All Right
Speaking of synthpop, Brooklyn duo Telepathe released "Slow Learner" on Dave Sitek's Federal Prism label earlier this year. Check them out tonight on this diverse bill.

Pizza Underground @ Baby's All Right
When it comes to pizza-themed rock bands, prefer Personal & the Pizzas, but there's no denying the gawker appeal of this Velvet Underground tribute act who change all the lyrics to be about pizza, featuring Home Alone's Macauley Culkin. This show is early (7PM), free and there will be free pizza. Free pizza!

YLT @ Maxwell's in June (more by PSquared Photography)
YLT

Yo La Tengo @ The Bell House
One of the many sad things about Maxwell's closing this year was that Yo La Tengo's annual Hannukah shows would no longer be happening. It's not quite the same but their four sold-out holiday shows at The Bell House will hopefully have some of the same spirit and surprises. This is night one.

Alarms and Controls, Life Size Maps, Poor Lily @ Cake Shop
The Dischord-signed Alarms and Controls includes members of '90s-era Dischord bands Circus Lupus, The Crownhate Ruin, and others, and if you like those bands, the overall '90s Dischord sound, or The Dismemberment Plan, you'll likely dig Alarms and Controls too.

Pompeya, Loveskills, Leverage Models @ Cameo Gallery
If you love Big '80s music like The Associates, Blue Nile, ABC, and (early) Spandau Ballet, you will probably dig the widescreen sounds of Leverage Models who have a firm grasp on that, right down to the saxaphone and syn-toms.

The Dikes of Holland, Stolen Girls, Black Lagoon @ Death By Audio
Tonight's show is headlined by Austin garage punks The Dikes of Holland and you can check out their most recent album, Braindead USA, below.

Peace Arrow, Celestial Shore, Brad Pit, Heaven's Gate, Tonstartsbandht, Softspot, Dada Trash Collage, Baked, Jerry Paper, The Dreebs @ Shea Stadium
There are a lot of quality local bands on this bill, including aggressively dreamy Heaven's Gate and the somewhat mathy Celestial Shore. It's also a birthday party, so be ready to sing at some point.

A John Waters Christmas @ Stage 48
The director and kitsch connoisseur will be sharing "some of his favorite holiday traditions, from his compulsive desire to give and receive perverted gifts to his religious fanaticism for Santa Claus and an unhealthy love of real-life holiday horror stories."

Spires @ The Standard, East Village
Spires will be debuting their new line-up tonight at this early show at East Village branch of The Standard hotel chain. The show is free but you need to RSVP by emailing aohayon@standardhotel.com.

Alt-J @ The Studio at Webster Hall
You had to enter SiriusXM's contest to get into this show, but if you did that you'll get a chance to see this now-pretty-famous band in the intimate Studio at Webster Hall.

The Range, Zeljko McMullen, Michael Beharie, Diamond Terrifier @ Trans-Pecos
IDM producer The Range has picked up some speed this year with his acclaimed Nonfiction LP, and tonight he'll be at Todd P's new Trans Pecos venue (915 Wyckoff Ave, aka the old Silent Barn space). Saxman/electronic musician Sam Hillmer's (of Zs) Diamond Terrifier project is worth catching too.

Juelz Santana @ BB King's
Diplomats member Juelz Santana has a pretty notable solo career too, and apparently he's working on his first solo album since 2005. Maybe we'll hear some new songs tonight?

Videology's 10th Anniversary Party
Williamsburg's videostore-turned-bar/screening-room/videstore turns 10 years old today. There's a host of special programming in store, plus BV's Bill Pearis will be DJing starting at 11 PM. There's also half-price drinks all night, but you must RSVP to attend.

Chumped, Broadcaster, American Hellfire Club, Remnants @ Lulu's
The self-titled debut EP from Brooklyn's poppy punks Chumped is one of the best EPs of its kind to come out this year, and they were pretty fun at the BV/EIS party last night. This is their last show of 2013, so if you haven't caught them yet and can't wait til next year, don't miss your chance.

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

For laughs, check out the NYC Comedy calendar too.

Little Dragon at Treasure Island 2013 (more by Autumn Andel)
Little Dragon

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

Hausu, Shadow Walker, X-Ray Eyeballs, Lost Animal, Future Punx @ 285 Kent Avenue
Portland post-punks Hausu headline this night of generally angular sounds. Get there early for openers Future Punx's '80s-loving skronky new wave.

FIDLAR, The Orwells, Shocked Minds @ Bowery Ballroom
You normally don't associate Bowery Ballroom with wild nights, but the beer-n-bong fueled antics of both FIDLAR and The Orwells should rile the crowd up pretty good. Sold out, dawg.

Guerilla Toss, Blanche Blanche Blanche, The Dreebs, Designer @ Death By Audio
New England noise descends on DBA tonight with two bands from MA (Guerilla Toss, Designer) and one originally from VT (Blanche Blanche Blanche). The Dreebs fill the requisite locals spot.

Color Film, Crush Distance, Heavenly Beat @ Glasslands
'80s-leaning Color Film (the new project of Daryl Palumbo of Long Island post-hardcore band Glassjaw) celebrate the release of their new EP with this show. If you dig the liquid bass sounds and impassioned vocals of Japan and The Associates, you may want to check them out.

Simple Minds @ Roseland Ballroom
Mind you, if you really like '80s sounds and impassioned vocals, why not go for the real bombastic deal with Simple Minds.

I Am The Avalanche, Sainthood Reps, I Hate Our Freedom, Sad and French @ Knitting Factory
And if you like Long Island post-hardcore bands not playing '80s-style new wave, this is a pretty solid post-hardcore/punk show with Long Island new(ish)comers Sainthood Reps opening for fellow, longer-running LI band I Am the Avalanche.

Little Dragon, SZA @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Swedish synth pop band Little Dragon always bring danceable tunes and a highly entertaining show, and forward-thinking R&B singer SZA (signed to TDE) is worth catching too. Sold out.

Boys Noize, Pllo @ Output
Boys Noize gets associated with the EDM scene these days, but this week he does two nights at the intimate (for his standards) Williamsburg dance club Output.

Frightened Rabbit, Augustines @ Webster Hall
The album that many say Frightened Rabbit will never top is five years behind us, but they've still got a supportive fan base (as two nights at Webster Hall, one of which is sold out, might imply) and this year's Pedestrian Verse is still pretty good.

Terror, Counterparts, Power Trip, Code Orange Kids, Manipulate @ The Studio at Webster Hall
This bill brings together a few different types of hardcore bands. Most exciting to us are the crossover thrashers Power Trip and post-hardcore noisemakers Code Orange Kids.

Wesley Stace @ City Winery
John Wesley Harding is going by his real name, Wesley Stace, again, and tonight he returns to City Winery where he often does his Cabinet of Wonders variety show, but tonight's a regular gig.

Radiolab Live w/ On Filmore, Noveller, Ophira Eisenberg @ Beacon Theatre
Once again, WNYC/NPR show Radiolab has taken its show on the road, this time with an event they're calling "Apocalyptical." In addition to hosts Jad Abumrad and Robert Krulwich, they've brought along musicians Noveller and On Filmore, plus comedian Ophira Eisenberg for their patented blend of science, music and humor.

Philip Glass - "Songs of Milarepa" Premiere @ The Town Hall
Philip Glass' "Songs of Milarepa" is being premiered by a number of musicians in NYC tonight. More info here.

"IV-Aided Dreams" release party w/ Jorge Elbrecht @ Baby's All Right
Violens' Jorge Elbrecht will celebrate the release of his new collaborative single, "IV-Aided Dreams" (featuring Caroline Polachek) with a party at new Williamsburg spot Baby's All Right. The music video for that single will make its debut, Elbrecht will DJ and drink specials will be enjoyed by most.

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

What else?

by Doug Moore

We debuted a new song from Oozing Wound's killer debut album Retrash over at Invisible Oranges this morning. Since I just finished writing about it over there, I'll let myself, um, speak for myself:

"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...

Hopscotch

One of the most eclectic lineups in the US, Hopscotch Festival in Raleigh, NC, will be back for 2013 on September 5 -7. Pulling from all genres, this year's line-up includes names like Big Boi (who plays NYC tonight), Spiritualized, Sleep, Wolf Eyes (who have a new video), The Breeders (performing Last Splash), John Cale, Kurt Vile & the Violators, Gorguts, Inter Arma (who play NYC on Saturday), Double Negative (who played NYC this past weekend), Swearin' (them too), Pissed Jeans, Dan Friel, Waxahatchee and many many others. Three-day wristbands are on sale now with individual day tickets going on sale in June. Full lineup is below.

APTBS @ DBA, 12/15/2012
A Place to Bury Strangers

Long-running Williamsburg DIY venue Death by Audio threw a very fun holiday party on Saturday (12/15), headlined by A Place to Bury Strangers whose frontman Oliver Ackerman runs the Death by Audio effects pedals shop that's in the same building at the club. APTBS had the most gear I've ever seen on DbA's stage, complete with two projectors that enveloped the club in psychedelic visuals which, along with the sheer volume the band is known for, made for some serious sensory overload.

The rest of the night featured other bands in the DbA family. The Immaculates cranked out the garage soul and flung gifts into the audience. They did their seasonal single from last year, "New York is Mine for the Holidays," as well. Jay Heiselmann, who sings for The Immaculates, also now plays in the radically-revamped line-up of Grooms who also played the DbA party. We got a few songs from Grooms' third album which will be out sometime in the first half of 2013. Shoegaze/noise trio The Dreebs opened the show.

With Santa hats given out at the door it was a festive night all around. More pics from the DbA holiday party below...

A Place to Bury Strangers at Orion Festival, June 2012 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
A Place to Bury Strangers

A Place to Bury Strangers have been busy on the road supporting their latest album, Worship. Time in the van means plenty of time to listen to music and the band given us a list of their favorite LPs of 2012. It includes recent tourmates Bleeding Rainbow's forthcoming LP, Yeah Right, which technically isn't out till 2013 but the band have been selling it at the merch table. Also, it's their list not ours so who are we to say? (Also it's a really good album.) You can check out all of APTBS' picks below.

Meanwhile, following a Hurricane Sandy relief benefit show at 285 Kent with Liturgy where they reportedly raised $4k (killer), APTBS will celebrate the holidays at their home turf of Death by Audio on Saturday (12/15). There the band will be joined by appearances from fellow DBA-related bands The Immaculates (with guests), Grooms and The Dreebs, and $8 gets you in at the door. No advance tickets but you can RSVP on Facebook. What is Santa bringing you? Tinnitus.

Thurston Loren

Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore and avant-garde guitar great Loren Connors, who initially teamed up for a collaborative set over the summer during Spy Music Festival, will again do so for the Northern Spy and LQQK CMJ showcase which happens on October 17 at Public Assembly with Hubble, PC Worship, Diamond Terrifier, The Dreebs, and Devin, Gary & Ross. Tickets for that show are on sale now or you can try to get in with your CMJ badge.

As mentioned, Loren Connors (playing as a duo with Suzanne Langille) shares a bill with Thurston's SY bandmate Lee Ranaldo (who will be playing with his group, Text of Light) at 285 Kent on November 13.

Meanwhile, Thurston Moore plays a local show in NYC TONIGHT (10/10) at Le Poisson Rouge with John Zorn, Jesse Harris, Gary Lucas, Red Baraat, David Amram, TriBeCaStan, Flutterbox and the recently added Violent Femmes frontman Gordan Gano. Tickets for tonight's show are still available.

A lengthy video of Thurston and Loren's set from Spy Music Fest is below.
