Silent Barn backyard, now with legal booze
Silent Barn

Bushwick's Silent Barn opened a cafe, serving up coffee from a new espresso machine and sammys and snanks from nearby Your Way Cafe. That's in addition to the standard beer, wine and sake, which you can now legally drink in the yard. One employee told Bedford + Bowery that the venue expects to open a full bar at some point, opening up all kinds of possibilities. The Silent Barn cafe will be open from 4PM through shows. The cafe has plans for zine readings, book clubs, and kid-friendly activities during the day. Also: free wifi. Anyone been? How them sammiches?

As for live shows, tonight (8/19) at Silent Barn it's Chimes, The Love Ways, Lost Boy? and The Veda Rays. Then on Wednesday (8/20) it's Heavens Gate, Weekends, Advaeta, Bueno, and Et Al.

The Notwist at Webster Hall in 2008 (more by Tim Griffin)
The Notwist

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

The Notwist, Jel (from Themselves/13 & God) @ Webster Hall
German band The Notwist released Closer to the Glass, their first album in five years, back in February which found them still melting glitchy electronics and krauty indie rock together with skill.

Turnip King, Kissing Is A Crime, Idiot Son, Bronko Lelich @ Baby's All Right
Baby's All Right hosts free shows on Mondays, and tonight's line-up is solid as an indie rock, with Sea Cliff, Long Island's Turnip King headlining. While we're on the subject of Baby's All Right, their delicious/deady Pink Baby frozen cocktails are only a buck during happy hour (5 - 8 PM) every day during June.

Rich Homie Quan, Jon Connor, Ty Dolla $ign, Troy Ave, Lil Bibby, August Alsina, Jarren Benton, Vic Mensa, Kevin Gates @ Best Buy Theater
It's the XXL 2014 Freshman Class' NYC showcase tonight with some great upcoming names including Rich Homie Quan, Ty Dolla $ign, Troy Ave, Vic Mensa, Kevin Gates and more.

Robot Death Kites, Wooden Indian Burial Ground, Hex Net, Adult Dude @ Death by Audio
Masked and screaming, Robot Death Kites are a Yuppie Death Nightmare on their new casette, which you can stream below. Adult Dude make good Dinosaur Jr/Superchunk style rock and are worth catching too.

Peter Murphy, Ringo Deathstarr @ Irving Plaza
Peter Murphy just released his new album, Lion, which was produced by Youth of Killing Joke and, as the title might imply, is a little wilder than we've heard the former Bauhaus singer be in a while. Lion definitely roars. Tonight's show is opened by superior shoegaze trio Ringo Deathstarr who roar, too.

IAMSU, Phony PPL @ MHOW
This Converse Rubber Tracks Live show is free as long as you RSVPed (but entry is still first come, first served) and is headlined by upcoming West Coast rapper IAMSU.

Life Size Maps, The Veda Rays, Council, How Sad, Aly Tadros @ Pianos
This show is part of the New Music Seminar (not that you noticed), featuring a nice array of local talent, including underappreciated synth-rock band Life Size Maps.

The Orwells @ Rough Trade
Chicago's The Orwells just released their second album, Disgraceland, and are celebrating that tonight. To get into the show you need to have bought the album at Rough Trade before the show. There's a TBA afterparty too.

Ed Askew, Abhay Singh @ Manhattan Inn (FREE)
Ed Askew is nothing short of a legend in folk music. His '60s material lives up today and lucky for us he is currently a very active musician. Any chance to see him is one worth taking.

Trickstar, Rivergazer, Benjamin Shepherd, Issac Gillespie & Ian Davis Duo @ Palisades
Rivergazer is the project of Kevin Farrant, who you may know as the guitarist in Porches, though this is a little poppier than that band. Show's at Palisades (906 Broadway in Brooklyn) and admission is $5 at the door. Stream a track below.

John Hodgman @ Union Hall
Erudite author, actor, Daily Show correspondent, comedian and general bon vivant John Hodgman hosts another of his Secret Society shows at Union Hall. Advance tickets are sold out, but there may be a few at the door if you get there early.

The Kondabolu Brothers, Todd Barry, Adam Cayton-Holland, John Early, Allison Leiby, Ramon Rivas II @ Littlefield
The Kondabolu Brothers guest host Night Train tonight (Wyatt Cenac is elsewhere this week), with a strong lineup of funny guests.

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

EMA at SXSW 2014 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
EMA

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

Baths, Young Fathers, P. Morris @ Bowery Ballroom
Baths took an unexpected turn towards emotional songwriting on last year's Obsidian, while still keeping his electronic pop style intact. He's continuing to support the album on his current tour, which hits NYC tonight for a sold-out show.

Andrew W.K. (Grand Piano Party) @ SubCulture
Andrew WK's got more Grand Piano Parties coming up this weekend, including one tonight and another tomorrow. While we don't always associate Andrew WK with grand pianos, we're sure he'll deliver on making it a party.

Caveman, Total Slacker, Reputante, Amanda X @ 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 a diverse bill, with guitar pop (Caveman, Reputante) separated by blasts of noise (Total Slacker, Amanda X). Free.

The Feelies @ The Bell House
Legendary New Jersey band The Feelies have proved influential on generations of post-punk, jangle pop and alternative rock bands, and their 30+ year old material still sounds timeless today. They're no slackers in the live show department either -- they play a few shows in the area every year these days and are always worth catching.

EMA, Downtown Boys @ Mercury Lounge
EMA's new album, The Future's Void, is just as and sometimes more devastating than its predecessor, with a killer variety of tunes that pull from industrial, alternative rock, folk and more. She's on tour with the saxophone-driven, politically-fueled Providence punk band Downtown Boys, who are worth showing up on time for. Sold out.

Bo Ningen, These People, Ken South Rock @ Knitting Factory
One of the most talked-about bands at SXSW this year was Japanese band Bo Ningen, due in no small part to their wild, guitar-swinging, in-your-face shows. Experience them for yourself -- this is the first of two NYC shows for the band.

The Bad Plus @ Jazz Standard (early set and late set)
Going for nearly 25 years, The Bad Plus continue to straddle the line between jazz and modern rock. Their new record is an album-length recording of Stravinsky's "THe Rites of Spring." Tonight's the second evening of a four-night run at Jazz Standard, with an early and late show.

The Split Squad featuring the Figgs, Los Dudes @ The Bowery Electric
Featuring Blondie drummer Clem Burke, Fleshtones guitarist Keith Streng, The Plimsouls Eddie Munoz, and others, The Spit Squad make crunchy, rockin' power pop. Their debut album was produced by Scott McCaughey of Young Fresh Fellows. Tonight they'll be aided and abetted by upstate NY's legendary The Figgs. Special guests could happen.

Timber Timbre, Fiver @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Timber Timbre's great and often-underrated dark balladry sounds as good as ever on this year's Hot Dreams, and maybe it's actually not that underrated 'cause tonight's show is sold out.

Heaven's Gate, Lost Boy?, The Veda Rays, Heeney, Sunflower Bean @ Death by Audio
Out of the ashes of Sweet Bulbs, Heaven's Gate took some of their old band's dreamy noise, but took it in a significantly different direction, playing to singer strengths and became more of punky rock band...while still using a lot of effects pedals.

Steve Gunn, Kevin Morby, Prince Rupert's Drops @ Rough Trade
A onetime member of Kurt Vile's backing band, The Violators, Gunn released his most recent solo album, Time Off, last year. Kevin Morby, meanwhile, used to be in Woods, now co-fronts The Babies, and released a very good solo album last year. He also now lives in California so your chances to see him play aren't as frequent.

Toadies, Supersuckers @ Stone Pony (NJ)
It's a double bill of '90s-era Southwest alt-rock with hitmakers the Toadies (remember "Possum Kingdom"?) and self-proclaimed "Greatest Rock 'n' Roll Band in the World," The Supersuckers.

Com Truise, Alex English, rekLES @ Webster Hall
Com Truise brings the beats to tonight's Girls & Boys party at Webster Hall and is sure to keep the place moving.

Culture Shock @ SUNY Purchase
It's the first day of Purchase's annual two-day Culture Shock festival and features a variety of great stuff, including NYC rap trio Flatbush Zombies, R&B singer Kelela, production wizard Traxman, comedian Neil Hamburger, jazz trio Dawn of Midi, pop shoegazers FIeld Mouse and more. Kaytranada plays the afterparty. The festival is technically only open to students, alumni, and their guests.

King Krule

Phantogram @ Bonnaroo 2012 (more by Dana [distortion] Yavin)
phantogram

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.

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

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.
