Ghostface Killah

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

Ghostface Killah & GZA, Joey Bada$$, DJ Envy @ House of Vans
Wu-Tang members Ghostface Killah and GZA are headlining this free show with a collaborative set, and opening is a much newer New York rapper who owes much to the era Wu came from, Joey Bada$$. Great double bill.

Widowspeak, John Andrews & The Yawns @ Rocks Off Concert Cruise
Widowspeak's new album, All Yours, is out this week and while they haven't thrown out the applecart, they have given it a fresh coat of paint (and a cup of coffee), tinkering just a bit with their sound. Working with producer Jarvis Taveniere (who also played bass), there's more spring in their step this time, but without sacrificing that tremelo'd, dreamlike vibe they're known for. They celebrate All Yours' release tonight...on a boat!

Old Man Gloom, Mare @ Saint Vitus
Old Man Gloom have members of Converge, Cave In and Isis, and they're riding high off last year's The Ape of God which was one of the better metal albums of 2014. They're on tour with the reunited sludge band Mare, and tonight begins their sold-out 2-night stay at Saint Vitus.

Have Gun Will Travel, Garrett Klahn (Texas Is The Reason), Nathan Xander @ Cameo Gallery
Texas Is the Reason are unfortunately no longer reunited, but frontman Garrett Klahn is staying active as a solo artist. Tonight concludes his 2-night NYC run opening for Florida's Have Gun, Will Travel.

Vatican Shadow, Ron Morelli , Dual Action, Pure Matrix, Becka Diamond, Brandon Stosuy @ Good Room
Dominick Fernow's getting a lot of attention for his very well-received new Prurient album Frozen Niagara Falls this year, but tonight he's playing under another of his monikers: Vatican Shadow.

Lil Durk, Feli Fame, Hypno Carlito, Joey G, Money June @ Irving Plaza
Chicago auto-tuned rapper Lil Durk released his first official album this year, titled Remember My Name, and tonight's his second NYC show of the year in support of that.

Homeboy Sandman, Breeze Brewin, Isaac Sawyer, 2 Hungry Bros (DJ Sets) @ Knitting Factory
Homeboy Sandman released Hallways on Stones Throw last year, and he's continuing to support it on tour, with a hometown show tonight.

Dope Body, PC Worship, Pill, Big Neck Police, Pretengineer @ Aviv
Baltimore noisepunks Dope Body have a new album, Kunk, and play this dual-purpose show tonight that serves both as a record release party and a warm-up for their impending European tour. It's a sold bill all-around with great local bands like PC Worship and Pill.

Guerilla Toss, Dead Tenants, Kill Alters, Ani @ Palisades
Boston's Guerilla Toss are DIY scene mainstays but will likely reach a little wider audience now that they're signed to DFA who will release an EP this fall. Their spazzy anachro-funk is till best experienced live, and in sweaty dark venues like this.

AJ Davila, Total Slacker, Acid Dad @ Shea Stadium
Davila 666 frontman AJ Davila plays tonight with his other fearsome garagepunk band Terror Amor. His wild shows are a pretty safe bet for a good time.

Ttotals, White Kyle, MPHO, Heavy Birds @ Silent Barn
Nashville "outer blues" duo Ttotals play a second NYC show with Austin's garagey White Kyle with Brooklyn synthpop duo MPHO making this a very ecclectic bill.

Xylouris White, Luluc @ Union Pool
Xylouris White is the duo of Dirty Three's Jim White and Cretan folk musician George Xylouris. Their debut album, Goats, mixes Xylouris' traditional lute style and White's avant leanings, making for a very interesting listen that is all the more captivating live.

Lake Street Dive, Kitty, Daisy & Lewis @ Central Park SummerStage

Pill, Ttotals, White Kyle, WALL @ Elvis Guesthouse
Nashville "outer blues" duo Ttotals highlight this bill that is headlined by saxxy Brooklyn no wave skronkers Pill.

Babydungeons is pretentious and passive about overintellectualizing the world (this is the life that chose me, not the life I chose). Babydungeons needs more reverb on this microphone." Tonight features Daniel Simonsen, Mary Houlihan, Ryan Bennett, Regi Metcalf, Sean J. Patrick Carney, Chandler Moses and Alexandra Tatarsky. Hosted by Andrew Ritchie, with DJ Night Sax.

DonMonique @ Baby's All Right (Pussypower party)
Earlier this year, DonMonique released the very good Thirst Trap EP. Tonight she plays the Pussypower party which is: "Power as held by women.

SJB

Cambridge, MA's Sweet John Bloom already shared "Blood Moon" from their upcoming debut album on Tiny Engines, Weird Prayer, and now another song, "Moving Target," premieres in this post. It pulls from a handful of '80s/'90s influences, with the shouty indie rock of early Pavement, some of Sebadoh's catchy riffage, and a little Sonic Youth noise too. And at least partially thanks to producer Justin Pizzoferrato (who's worked with Sonic Youth and Dinosaur Jr), they have the aesthetic of that era down pat. Listen below. The album's due out in May, and pre-orders will be available soon here.

The band also have two previously-mentioned upcoming shows: Brooklyn on April 24 at The Gutter and Cambridge on April 26 at Middle East Upstairs. Since we last spoke, the full lineups for those shows have been revealed. Brooklyn has The Men's Mark Perro playing as a duo with Holly Overton (aka MPHO), plus The Fluids and The Dangles; and Cambridge has The Sun Lions and Chandos.

MPHO also play Shea Stadium tonight (4/8) with Ttotals, The Yin Yangs and Heavy Birds. You can stream one of their tracks below too.
