Cold Cave @ 285 Kent earlier this summer (more by Lucas Hodge)
Swearin' @ House of Vans in August (more by David Andrako)
Browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows. Here are some highlights...
Suuns, Rose Windows, Dinowalrus @ Le Poisson Rouge
Montreal's intense, krauty Suuns have been through NYC a few times in the past year, but they are always worth catching. Tonight's show is an appealing triple-bill, including Seattle's psych-rockers Rose Windows and locals Dinowalrus. Tickets are still available.
Swearin', Shellshag, Honey @ 285 Kent Avenue
Brooklyn's scrappy, honest pop punks Swearin' just opened The Julie Ruin's sold-out Bowery Ballroom show last night, but tonight you'll get a chance to see them headlining, and in a location truer to their DIY roots. It's a great all-around show, rounded out by Brooklyn DIY vets Shellshag and Psychic Ills-related project, Honey.
Laura Mvula, King @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Laura Mvula hasn't escalated to pop stardom yet (tonight's show is not sold out, but tomorrow's LPR show is), but she's got the material for it so we wouldn't be surprised if it's not long until you don't see her in venues as small as these anymore. The UK singer has an immediate pop appeal, but not without ambition and boundary-crossing, and her single "Green Garden" is pretty hard to get out of your head.
Neko Case @ Skylight West
It's a month of extremes for Canadian Neko Case. Before playing in tony palace Radio City Music Hall, she'll play the much more intimate (but no less swanky) Skylight West tonight. It's a free show but the RSVP closed a while back. You can still get tickets to Radio City, though.
Lapalux, Slava, Druid Cloak, FLOTE @ Tribeca Grand Hotel
UK producer Lapalux has been signed to Flying Lotus' Brainfeeder label for a while now, and he finally put out his debut full length for the label earlier this year. He's now on his first North American tour since that release, hitting NYC tonight at Tribeca Grand Hotel (moved from Le Bain), and returning in early October for a show at Glasslands. All good openers tonight too.
Chopp, These Days, Black Lagoon, Petal War @ Death by Audio
Tom Tom, the zine dedicated to female drummers, is hosting tonight's show that's headlined by rapper, Chopp, plus sets from post punks These Days, Black Lagoon and Petal War. There will also be free pocket pianos and t-shirts, but it's $7 to get in.
The Music Tapes @ 133rd St. Arts Center
Before Neutral Milk Hotel heads on tour, Julian Koster is doing one last run of shows for his band The Music Tapes at 133rd St. Arts Center Lab. Tonight's the dress rehearsal, and it's the first of five appearances this week. Free but RSVP is closed.
Big Terrific @ Cameo Gallery
Max Silvestri hosts the free weekly comedy show in the back of Williamsburg's Lovin' Cup. The line-up is usually held pretty close to the vest, but you can check his Twitter for the line-up. For more laughs, check out the NYC Comedy calendar too.

Mount Eerie at Le Poisson Rouge in September (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Mount Eerie (aka Phil Elverum) is about to kick off a tour of Japan this week, and upon returning to the US, he'll play "2 full band shows out of nowhere in NYC" on November 28 at Le Poisson Rouge and November 29 at NYU's Kimmel's Eisner and Lubin Auditorium on the 4th floor (60 Washington Square South) with Heaven's Gate, These Days, and ADVAITA. No opener for the LPR show has been announced yet and tickets are on sale now. Admission for the NYU show is free to NYU students and $3 to the general public.
In late January, Mount Eerie will head to Australia (dates TBA), and then in February he'll do his first ever New Zealand tour. All dates are listed below.
Hunters @ BrooklynVegan day party @ Public Assembly (10/20/12)
Brooklyn's own Hunters can be found headlining a local show at Death By Audio tonight (10/26) with Slutever and These Days. Flier at the end of this post. UPDATE: Hunters also open for METZ at Mercury Lounge (tickets).
Hunters were one of the 14 bands who played the BrooklynVegan day party at Public Assembly on Saturday. You saw one set of pictures from the whole show, but here's another of Hunters. They continue, along with a new video of the band performing on the roof of Factory Studios in Brooklyn, below...
Terrible Feelings @ Death By Audio
Sweden's Terrible Feelings kicked off their US tour with a show at Death by Audio last night (6/19), playing alongside Death First, Plastic Cross and These Days. From the melodic indie of These Days, the night got steadily more punk as the clocked ticked on and surprisingly didn't change wholly in temperament when the Swedes hit the stage. Though their shiny and slickly produced new LP Shadows suggests polish, Terrible Feelings's live show is much more raw, energetic and primitive in all of the best ways. Comparisons to Masshysteri seem appropriate. Shame on me for not knowing better, considering some of the punk rock company they keep.
If you missed the show, make sure and catch this highly-energetic punk-garage/power-pop band at Acheron on June 30th with another punk-leaning bill: Mutant Genes, Nuclear Spring and Sad Boys.
Mor eictures from Death By Audio are below.
Forgetters at Red 7 in Austin (more here)
Few hardcore and punk shows to put on your radar....
Forgetters will team with Oi band Hard Skin and Boston hardcore The Rival Mob for a killer three-way at Europa on Oct 22nd. Tickets are on sale. The show is one of three on Blake Schrazenbach's horizon. Forgetters will also play Cake Shop with Pregnant, These Days, and Bells on 9/10 and support Obits at Knitting Factory on 11/12. Their first 7" is out on September 21st.
Word is that Veins (with Mark McCoy of Das Oath, Charles Bronson, etc) was originally on the Hard Skin bill, but had to drop off, and speaking of Mark McCoy, his other project Failures has another show coming up. Australia's Straightjacket Nation will headline 538 Johnson with Failures, Vile Gash, Scapegoat, and Confines on 10/2. Veins, which also features members of Drunkdriver, Das Oath, and Castevet, recently pressed their great cassette on 7" vinyl. Pick up a copy via Youth Attack, it rules.
Speaking of Youth Attack, Brutal Chicago hardcore band Raw Nerve released their incredible self-titled LP on the label earlier this year. Though copies of that are long gone, you can still catch the band when they headline Acheron on 10/16 along with Manipulation, Perdition, and Concrete Cross (members Disnihil/Celebrity Murders).
And last but certainly not least, look for a double dose of Danish Hardcore punk from Hjertestop when they play NYC twice in early November. On 11/8, look for the band to play The Charleston with Night Birds, Nomos, and Crazy Spirit while 11/9 gets Acheron with Swedes Fy Fan! and Crazy Spirit.
