photo: River to River Festival 2013 (more by Ryan Muir)
The free River to River Festival returns in 2015 to various outdoor NYC venues from June 18-28 and includes music, dance, theater, visual art, film and more. Some highlights this year include the annual Bang on a Can Marathon which happens June 21 at Winter Garden at Brookfield Place as well as shows with Olga Bell, Roomful of Teeth, and more. River to River kicks off with the R2R Bash at Battery Park City's North End Way on June 18, featuring a performance by East African vocalist Somi.
Full schedule below...
New Amsterdam Records is presenting an all-day event at MoMA PS1 on October 19 called Sound/Source, an "exploration of electroacoustic music in all its forms, featuring collaborations between legends, luminaries, and newcomers as they examine the interplay between human and machine sounds." The centerpiece of the event is electronic composer Paul Lansky's series of Idle Chatter granular synth compositions on the 30th anniversary of the series' birth, including a new live vocal arrangement performed by members of Roomful of Teeth as well as an eight-channel surround sound arrangement performed by Lansky himself. (Lansky's "Mild und Leise" was famously sampled by Radiohead on "Idioteque.") Additionally, Holly Herndon will offer her own interpretation of "Idle Chatter."
Also that day: a performance of Alvin Lucier's "I am sitting in a room" making use of the resonant frequencies in MoMA PS1's geodesic dome. Former Battles vocalist Tyondiai Braxton will also do a set, and pianist Vicky Chow will perform Tristan Perich's album-length piece, Surface Image, a collaboration which will be released next month via New Amsterdam (watch a trailer for the LP below).
Additionally, there will be a number of site-specific sound installations, from Nate Boyce & Daniel Lopatin (Oneohtrix Point Never) in the Boiler Room basement; Daniel Wohl with Olga Bell (Dirty Projectors) and Caroline Shaw in the rooftop Richard Serra room; and literal elevator music created by Lucky Dragons. There will also be a handcrafted instillation of electronic instruments from MOOG.
Tickets for Sound/Source are on sale now. Trailer for Surface Image below...
Rocket from the Crypt at Riot Fest Chicago 2013 (more by Kirstie Shanley)
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Rocket from the Crypt, Ex Hex @ Bowery Ballroom
Rocket From the Crypt is one of the great John Reis' many bands (also of Drive Like Jehu, Hot Snakes, Sultans, Night Marchers, etc), and their mix of '90s punk and horn-filled rock 'n' roll swagger resulted in a handful of great records before their breakup in the mid 2000s. Now they're back on a reunion tour, and tonight's their first of two sold-out NYC shows this week. And it's a hell of a double bill with Mary TImony's (WIld Flag, Helium, Autoclave) glammy rock trio Ex Hex, who are opening and not to be missed.
Kraftwerk @ United Palace Theater
Electronic music pioneers Kraftwerk bring their 3-D tour to NYC for two shows at one of the prettiest venues in the city.
Habibi, Cosmonauts, LODRO, Black Sea @ Death by Audio
Local garagey girl groupers Habibi share the bill with their Burger Records labelmates Cosmonauts for what should be a fun night that also includes the dark, twisted sounds of Lodro.
Leverage Models, Zula, Trabajo, Salt Cathedral, Isn't Ours, Human Resources @ Shea Stadium
If you love Big '80s music like The Associates, 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.
Javelin, Delicate Steve, Helado Negro @ LPR
Chillwave survivors Javelin play tonight with their jammy Luaka Bop labelmates Delicate Steve. The night opens with the warped pop of Helado Negro.
Oren Ambarchi, EVOL @ Issue Project Room (Unsound Festival)
This year's NYC installment of the Polish-based experimental/electronic Unsound Festival begins tonight and continues through Sunday. Tonight's show is at Issue Project Room and features the US premiere of EVOL playing Hanne Darboven's 1984 piece "Opus 17a," followed by Oren Ambarchi's US premiere of his 2012 work, "Knots."
Lucky Dragons, Daniel Wohl, Tristan Perich @ Baby's All Right
Fronted by Luke Fischbeck and Sarah Rara, LA's arty Lucky Dragons make spare, laptop pop whose shows are ofter interactive and crowd-participatory. Tonight's openers -- Daniel Wohl and Tristan Perich -- are regulars on the NYC avant scene.
Flavor Flav and the Flavortronz @ Iridium
Public Enemy's Flavor Flav fronts a new band called the FlavorTronZ, who "cover hit songs from the '70s thru the '90s [...] from such greats like Wild Cherry, Sly & The Family Stone, Elton John, Led Zeppelin, The Gap Band and many others." You can't make this stuff up, and if you need to see it to believe it, you can do so at the Iridium twice tonight (8:30 PM & 10:30 PM).
The Pack A.D., Dinowalrus @ Mercury Lounge
Vancouver's The Pack A.D. do the guitar-drums duo thing but manage to not sound like any of the other bands with a similar configuration. Opening are chameleon-like Brooklynites Dinowalrus who seem to molt off their previous sound every season.
Tom Blacklung and the Smokestacks, Bluffing, Bears, Nine of Swords @ The Grand Victory
Good local bands at Grand Victory tonight, including dissonant sludge punks Tom Blacklung and the Smokestacks, indie pop band Bluffing, and Nine of Swords, aka the screamo/punk band fronted by Rachel Gordon who makes much softer music as Baby Mollusk.
Lady Gaga @ Roseland Ballroom
The long-lived NYC venue Roseland Ballroom will be closing its doors in early April, but before then it will go out with seven Lady Gaga shows, this being the fourth.
Big Terrific @ Cameo
Max Silvestri hosts the free weekly comedy show in the back of Williamsburg's Lovin' Cup. Tonight's talent includes Jared Logan, James Patterson, and Jacqueline Novak.
Art Garfunkel @ Bergen PAC
Maybe Simon wrote the songs, but Garfunkel's voice was a key part of that legendary duo's sound too, and you can catch him on his own at 3 NYC-area shows this week, this being the first.
For all of tonight's shows, and tomorrow's, check out our NYC concert calendar.
For laughs, check out the NYC Comedy calendar too.

Peelander-Z at The Studio in January (more by Leia Jospe)
Welcome home Peelander-Z! The NYC band is finally home after an extended tour with Anamanaguchi that kicked off at SXSW and ended on April 30th. And though the tour is over, the band is ALREADY back out on the road, playing Newark, Delaware tonight and a hometown show back at The Studio at Webster Hall Saturday (5/7) with Hard Nips and Friends. Tickets for that one are still available (and, update: we're giving away a pair on Facebook).
Anamanaguchi has a new NYC show on their calendar too, which they say "is gonna be AWESOME. we're gonna have: JAMS // VISUALS // STROBES // UNICORNBROS DOING SECURITY // FURBIES // RAINBOWS // W33D420 // OK." Bowery Presents may have to give some of their staff a night off to make way for those UNICORNBROS, because Anamanaguchi are talking about a show at Music Hall of Williamsburg on 7/22. Tickets are on sale.
You don't need to wait that link to see Anamanaguchi though. The band will play day one of this year's Blip Festival, the annual three day festival in celebration of "low-bit video games and home computers".

That's 1-Bit Symphony pictured above in NYC composer Tristan Perich's hand. The piece comes programmed into a microchip that's wired with a battery, an on/off switch, a volume control and a headphone jack, all within a standard CD jewel case. The sounds that come out are similar to the video game bleeps of chiptune (or Dan Deacon), but instead of, say, an 8-bit "Billie Jean" cover, the music is layered as minimilist-influenced composition. Tristan put out a previous CD-case circuit, 1-Bit Music, in 2004. The project has already been on sale at shows (the Bang on a Can Marathon, for instance), but the official release is set for August 24th on Cantaloupe.
There'll be a release party for 1-Bit Symphony at Roulette on Friday, August 20th. In addition to Tristan Perich, sets include Shawn Greenlee playing "noise electronics" and Daniel Wohl with his piece Glitch, for string quartet and electronics.
A video for 1-Bit Symphony is posted below...
Carl Craig, one of the many artists at Unsound 2010
Since 2003, Unsound Festival, Poland's most adventurous music festival, has brought a bold and uniquely modern program of music to Kraków. Now, with seven festivals in their native city under their belt (and outpost events further east in cities like Minsk),The festival will kick off on Thursday, February 4th, with the first ever US performance from Vladislav Delay + Lillevan as well as Sebastian Meissner + Kwartludium as Solid State Transmitter. The former will perform their "ongoing series of electronic music and video improvisations", while the latter will reimagine SST Records (yes, that SST) through the eyes of a classical composer (wow, awesome). The FREE show will take place at David Rubenstein Atrium at Lincoln Center.
Unsound is coming west to New York for their first ever North American edition. Unsound Festival New York's mission is to forge new links between music genres, between generations and even between artistic practices.
The driving force in the assembling of the New York program has been Unsound Festival's commitment to forms of music and sound art that involve experimentation and risk. Unsound Festival has made a worldwide reputation by breaking new ground while dealing with vibrant electronic, experimental, independent, post-classical and club music scenes from around the world.
Feb 5th begins the start of Warhol Program, a series of pieces designed for and in tribute to Andy Warhol. The great Carl Craig will join nsi. for live soundtracks to "Blow Job" and "Kiss" respectively during a pair of screenings that night at The Film Society of Lincoln Center, Walter Reade Theater> Tickets are currently on sale for both the first showing at 7:30 (tix), and the second going down at 9:30 PM (tix). The show will be the US debut of the pieces, with nsi.'s piece being it's world debut. For the night owls, the party continues at Public Assembly, who will house Bunker parties on that night, 2/12, and 2/13. More details about the Bunker parties are at their site.
The Warhol Program continues the next day (2/6), when Groupshow (Jan Jelinek, Andrew Pekler, Hanno Leichtmann) will lead a free eight-hour (!) improvisation to Andy Warhol's film "Empire" at LPR. Maybe hook up a sack lunch?
After eight hours of improv, LPR will make way for A Century of Dance Music featuring the US debut of Moritz Von Oswald Trio:
Berliner Moritz Von Oswald is well known for his work as part of the duos Basic Channel and Rhythm & Sound as well as for his own "M" series of recordings. He could be labeled the inventor of "dub techno," if that weren't too narrow a tag to define the scope of his music and accomplishments. Moritz Von Oswald is highly ranked by many critics and fans alike as one of the most original electronic music producers of the last two decades. [On 2/6] Von Oswald unveils his new trio featuring Vladislav Delay on drums and Max Loderbauer on electronics in their first ever North American performance. Last year their debut album was released by London's Honest Jons.Doors are at 10PM, and tickets are on sale.
In tribute to Von Oswald, the evening opens with New York City's Ensemble LPR - the flexible house band of the venue (Le) Poisson Rouge which is led by LPR's two young founders - David Handler (violinist / composer) and Justin Kantor (cellist) along with fellow Manhattan School of Music graduate Orlando Alonso (conductor / pianist). The Ensemble will perform new renditions of Ravel's "Bolero" and selections from Mussorgsky's "Pictures at an Exhibition" based on remixes Moritz Von Oswald and Carl Craig assembled in 2008 for the Deutsche Grammophon album "Recomposed" (released only in Europe).
We'll post more details on this festival, but for now, dig on the full lineup (below) and a few videos. In addition, you can download a copy of the Unsound digital compilation for FREE for a limited time. Get on it!
