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

King Krule @ Webster Hall
Archie Marshall is an old soul trapped in a minor's body, a dichotomy made apparent on his terrific debut album, Six Feet Beneath the Moon, which mixes thoughtful songwriting with modern productions touches. Tonight's sold out.

Ida Maria @ Rough Trade
Norwegian singer-songwriter Ida Maria, once known for her wildcard electric performances, returns for her first NYC shows in some time. Will "Oh My God" still have the same punch?

Foley, The Dirty Nil, Shy Hunters, Tyburn Saints @ Glasslands
Tonight's finally the NYC debut of Canada punk rippers The Dirty Nil, who were supposed to play here in October but had to cancel at the last minute. If you like your punk quick and dirty, check this band out.

Phantogram, Until The Ribbon Breaks, Weeknight @ Terminal 5
While fans wait for Phantogram's new album, they can hear a few new songs -- like "Lights" from the Hunger Games: Catching Fire soundtrack -- tonight at Terminal 5.

Sean Nicholas Savage, Zula, Regal Degal, Softspot @ Death By Audio
Prolific and a little eccentric, Montreal artist Sean Nicholas Savage mixes genres with abandon, as heard most recently on this year's Other Life, which came out on Arbutus Records (home of Grimes, Doldrums and more).

Dapwell from Das Racist (DJ set), The Kominas, Gandu Cirus, Ashni, Cerenkov, Gabe Merizalde @ Pianos
This is an afterparty for the South Asian Film Festival which is going on in NYC this week. Massachusetts band The Kominas headline, followed by a DJ set from onetime Das Racist member, Dapwell.

GOASTT (Ghost of a Sabre Tooth Tiger), Aaron Roche @ Union Pool
If anyone has a right to ape the psych-pop sounds of The Beatles it's Sean Lennon who does just that with his band Ghost of a Sabre Tooth Tiger who are now just going by the acronym GOASTT.

Elton John @ Madison Square Garden
With close to fifty years of pop/rock songwriting and a new album out this year that at least Rolling Stone likes, Elton John takes over MSG for what will surely be a night of hits.

Nothing Changes w/ Mueran Humanos, Reverso @ Home Sweet Home
South American synth-goths Mueran Humanos headline this week's edition of the popular late-night darkwave party.

O'Death, The Woes @ Brooklyn Bowl
Brooklyn's O'Death have been kicking for quite a while now, making their dark brand of gothic alt-country.

Occultation, Survival, Yautja, Razorheads @ Acheron
Occultation, the spooky rock/metal band featuring the guitarist of weirdo black metal act Negative Plane, kick off a week-long tour with a BK appearance alongside up-and-coming Nashville grinders Yautja and locals Razorheads and Survival (not the Liturgy side project)." Or something.

Big Terrific @ Cameo Gallery
Max Silvestri hosts the free weekly comedy show in the back of Williamsburg's Lovin' Cup. Tonight's line-up features Ali Wong, Andy Haynes, Phoebe Robinson, Chris Tellez, and Joe DeRosa.

Melissa Laveaux, Stranger Cat @ Cameo
Paris-via-Ottawa singer Melissa Laveaux comes to NYC to headline this show, and there's pretty great local support from Cat Martino's new electronic project Stranger Cat.

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

Genders

Portland psychedelic rockers Genders (featuring former members of the now-defunct Youth) have released released an EP and a 7" since forming last year, and "Something To Get You By," the first single off their upcoming debut LP, Get Lost (due out in early December), might be their most engaging song to date. They have a surfy indie pop vibe on a lot of the earlier tracks, but this one is dark, atmospheric, and grounded by a driving rhythm section. The guitars crescendo in a shoegaze/post-rock kind of way, and the vocals may be melancholic and covered in reverb, but it's still catchy stuff. Check it out below.

Genders recently wrapped up some dates supporting Built to Spill, and they'll team back up with them later this month, but before that they're doing some headlining dates of their own. They don't open Built to Spill's NYC show (11/7 at Irving Plaza), but they do play three of their own NYC shows this week.

TONIGHT (11/3) they're at Death by Audio with Ovary Action and Crazy Pills. Then they play Shea Stadium on Monday (11/4) with The Veda Rays, Gondola, and Honduras. And finally, they'll be at Arlene's Grocery on Tuesday (11/5) with The Attic Ends, Black Wing Halo, and Cash Money & the Sellouts. Tickets for the Arlene's Grocery show are on sale now. No advance tickets for the DbA and Shea shows.

All dates are listed (some venues still missing), along with the song stream, below...

A Place to Bury Strangers at MHOW in 2012 (more by Chris La Putt)
APTBS

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

A Place to Bury Strangers, Bleeding Rainbow, Potty Mouth, Shark? @ Death By Audio
Last time APTBS played DbA (the equivalent of a house show), they brought in their own PA and light show making for total sensory overload. Along for the ride: Philly shoegazers Bleeding Rainbow, Potty Mouth and Shark?

Red Fang, Doomriders, Low Fat Getting High @ 285 Kent Avenue
It's gonna get loud, and probably pretty rowdy, at 285 Kent tonight with this free show (RSVPed out) that includes Pacific Northwest sludge from Red Fang, the Converge-related Doomriders, and melodic punk from Brooklyn's Low Fat Getting High. Get there early, because this whole bill is ridiculous.

Modern English, Jangula @ Mercury Lounge
Sure, most people only know "I Melt with You" but Modern English had a string of good records in the early '80s on 4AD and are currently working on a new album with the core of the original band.

The Cult @ Roseland Ballroom
Gothy mystic rockers The Cult will bring the big riffs of their 1987 album, Electric, and playing that record in full. You'll probably get "She Sells Sanctuary" and "Fire Woman" too.

Blues Control, Mad Nanna, Free Time @ 252 Norman Rooftop (4 PM)
This is a rooftop show (there's a rain contingency too) with Drag City's Blues Control, plus two Aussie bands: Mad Nanna and Free Time. It's also got a 4 PM start, so duck out of work early.

A$AP Ferg, Mister Cee, DJ Spynfo, DJ Enuff @ Webster Hall
A$AP Ferg's Trap Lord is out this week, and while it might not be as diverse as his pal A$AP Rocky's recent album, it's at least as fun. Tonight he celebrates it at the Girls & Boys party at Webster Hall, which is doubling as a Trap Lord release show.

George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic @ Beekman Beer Garden
The funk/soul legend comes to NYC for an outdoor show tonight, which should make for a pretty great time.

Golden Gurls, Bored Spies (ex SEAM), Bedfellows @ Cake Shop
Featuring ex members of Seam and Bitch Magnet, Bored Spies make post-rock with a strong melodic stream. Stream a couple tracks below. Baltimore's Golden Gurls (not to be confused with UK band Golden Grrrls) make fuzzy indie rock reminiscent of early '90s college rock.

Kissing Is A Crime, Caged Animals, Shilpa Ray, Grand Resort, The Veda Rays, Vinyl Thief, The Ivorys @ Pianos
It's week two of Brooklyn-via-Dominican-Republic indiepop group Grand Resort's Pianos Residency and they've got a whole slew of other bands on the bill, giving you maximum value for your live music dollar.

Clarence, Herzog, PUP, Soda Bomb @ Shea Stadium
Toronto's PUP are just another of the excellent punk bands to come out in Canada in recent years, and you can catch them tearing things up in Brooklyn at Shea Stadium tonight.

Celestial Shore, Omhouse, Zula, Half Waif @ Silent Barn
Toronto's Omhouse are in Brooklyn tonight for this show that's rounded out by some excellent indie pop locals, Celestial Shore, Zula, and Half Waif. Stream a new Zula track, "Twin Loss," below.

Paul Banks, Albert Hammond Jr., Danny Masterson (DJ Mom Jeans set), Alexa Chung (DJ set), Fabrizio Moretti (DJ set), Devendra Banhart (DJ set), Special Guests @ The Bowery Hotel
This is a benefit for School of Seven Bells' Benjamin Curtis who is currently battling Lymphoblastic Lymphoma. Tickets are still available.

New Power Generation, Secret Band @ City Winery
It's "Purple Week" at City Winery and tonight's show is not Prince (or an artist formerly known as that) but it is members of his sometimes backing band, New Power Generation, plus the promise of "very special guests." For the price of these tickets, they better be special.

Bret Michaels @ B.B. King Blues Club
You may not know this but actor, director, screenwriter, producer and reality television personality Brett Michaels used to be in a popular hard rock band in the '80s and '90s. Look him up if you don't believe us.

'Krush Groove' @ Videology (FREE)
BV's own Bill Pearis hosts this screening of 1985 hip hop musical which tells the story of Def Jam Records and Run DMC, with many of the bands playing themselves. (Russell Simmons is played by Blair Underwood, though.) Also featuring Fat Boys' "All You Can Eat"! Free.

Low Fat Getting High at Cake Shop earlier this month (more by Chris Gersbeck)
Low Fat Getting High

Brooklyn punks Low Fat Getting High have been playing raucous local shows for some time now, and as mentioned, they're finally laying down that intensity for a new EP, which is called Bad Yoga, and has just been officially announced. The EP will be out on July 18 via Dead Broke/Money Fire Records. It kicks off with three tracks of menacing, breakneck-speed punk, and culminates in a fourth track of Bleach-style noise and sludge. The whole thing is just over ten minutes and it's a real ripper so keep an eye out for it. You can stream the opening track, "Better Better Worse," along with the artwork and tracklist below.

Low Fat Getting High have a ton of upcoming shows as usual, including a previously discussed Gimme Tinnitus-presented show TONIGHT (5/22) at Big Snow with another solid local punk band, Big Ups, CYHSY-related Radical Dads (for whom the show is a record release party), and Miniboone. $7 at the door gets you into tonight's show. Doors are at 8 PM. All ages. Show flyer below.

After that, they've got a bunch of other local dates, including a Converse Rubber Tracks show on June 12; Silent Barn on June 14 with another great local punk band, Sleepies, noise rockers Eula, indie rockers Shark?, sludgy psych rockers Psychic Blood and others; a release party for the new EP on July 18 at Shea Stadium with Big Ups, Vulture Shit, and Flagland (who play with Butter the Children and Ovlov soon); and even more local dates, all of which are listed below.

In related news, as mentioned, Big Ups and Psychic Blood also play a Northside show with Nu Sensae and Destruction Unit.

All LFGH dates are listed, along with the song stream and album info, below...

White Fence
White Fence

As mentioned, White Fence's new album, Cyclops Reap, is out this week on John Dwyer's Castle Face label. Tim Presley doesn't seem to be running out of songs and this is another quality batch of paisley-scented psychedelia. You can stream "To The Boy I Jumped In The Hemlock Alley" below and hear the whole record over at Pitchfork.

White Fence will be in Brooklyn for the Northside Festival in June, playing two shows: the Panache showcase at Brooklyn Bowl on June 13 and then a late show at Knitting Factory on June 14. Tickets to the Knitting Factory show are on sale now; no word on Brooklyn Bowl tickets just yet.

The whole Panache showcase line-up is still forthcoming but we do know its being headlined by Mac DeMarco and we have updated dates for him below as well.

These are just a couple of the additions to the 2013 Northside line-up that includes that free Walkmen show in McCarren Park. Other new additions, Kylesa, Torche, Sonny & the Sunsets, Nü Sensae, Kisses, The Luyas and more. Northside line-up as it stands now is below.
