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

"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...
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
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 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 Moore & Loren Connors at The Stone in July, via (((unartig)))
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.
