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

EMA @ MoMA PS1
EMA is presenting a new virtual reality project, I Wanna Destroy, at MoMA PS1 today (2 PM start). "This virtual world uses 3D game mechanics to articulate experiences not often explored in mainstream gaming; including guilt, nostalgia, family, and transcendence. Audience members explore a changing 3D environment, while their experiences are projected before the entire audience." She provides a live score.

Modern Baseball, Spraynard, The Weaks, Marietta @ Saint Vitus
This is a cool lineup all-around of lower-fi punk with the lyrically clever Modern Baseball, the melodic hardcore-leaning Spraynard, the power poppy The Weaks, and emo-y Marietta. It's the release party for a 6-way split that all four of these bands are on, and both the show and the split benefit United Cerebral Palsy. Sold out.

Troy Ave, Jeezy, Meek Mill, Fabolous, Yo Gotti @ Webster Hall
Another of the many hip hop shows for NBA All-Star Weekend, and an especially stacked one. There's local up-and-comer Troy Ave, Atlanta's reliable Jeezy, the more-promising-than-ever Meek Mill, early '00s survivor Fabolous, and long-running Memphis rapper Yo Gotti.

Mortals, The Black Antler, Nerve Shatter @ The Acheron
Fresh off opening for Eyehategod at Vitus, locals Mortals now headline their own NYC show tonight. Last year they put out their great sludgy sophomore LP, Cursed to See the Future, on Relapse.

Donuts Are Forever 9 @ Brooklyn Bowl
In honor of the great hip hop producer J Dilla, who would've turned 41 last week if he didn't sadly pass away in 2006, the ninth annual Donuts Are Forever tribute goes down at Brooklyn Bowl. Advance tickets sold out, but a limited amount will be available at doors.

Sinkane, Cookies @ Rough Trade
Sinkane, aka multi-talented Brooklynite Ahmed Gallab, has helmed the multi-city William Onyeabor Atomic Bomb tribute concerts, toured with Caribou, and last year released his fifth album, the underrated Mean Love.

'Love Hangover' w/ Gramercy Arms, Doug Gillard, Will Sheff & more @ Bowery Electric
It's the annual The Love Hangover concert that features "the world-weary and the true believers alike huddle in pairs, playing songs to heal broken hearts and break whole ones." The Gramercy Arms' Dave Derby curated this year's lineup.

Wild Arrows, Leave the Planet, Gurus, Slang King @ Baby's All Right
Amongst this line-up of Brooklyn indie bands are UK dreampoppers Leave the Planet who have been on a mission to play every small NYC and Brooklyn venue. They're good too, gliding on the gentler side of shoegaze.

Walter Lure (Johnny Thunders Heartbreakers), Matt Hitt (Drowners) & more @ Bowery Electric
This Valentine's Day edition of Bowery Electric's 'Sally Can't Dance' party goes down with punk legend Walter Lure, newcomer Matt Hitt, and many more playing the songs of the New York Dolls and The Heartbreakers.

Ricky Eat Acid, Gregory McKillop, Host, Jordaan Mason, Tele/visions @ Shea Stadium
Sam Ray just played NYC last week with his punk band Teen Suicide, and tonight he switches over to the realm of electronic music with his solo project Ricky Eat Acid.

PHOX, Field Report @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
A Justin Vernon-approved lineup goes down at MHOW tonight with Wisconsin indie folk collective PHOX (who recorded their album in Justin's studio) and Field Report (the project of Chris Porterfield, who used to be in DeYarmond Edison with Justin). Both are also on board for the upcoming Justin Vernon/Aaron Dessner-curated music festival in Eau Claire.

Then again, it's in single-digit temperatures tonight, so maybe you just wanna stay home and watch the four-hour Saturday Night Live 40th Anniversary Special.

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

Shilpa Ray

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

The Ugly Club, Backwords, Economy Punk, Shilpa Ray @ Glasslands
Seven nights of Glasslands left! This varied bill features psych-folk band Backwords, and the always engaging Shilpa Ray (who has new stuff on the way). If you go, be sure to check out all the art.

Allen Toussaint Trio @ City Winery
While most of his best-known songs were made famous by other performers, producer, arranger, hitmaker and general New Orleans living legend Allen Toussaint in no small way helped shape not only the sound of that city's R&B scene but of rock n' roll and pop music in general. Tonight's show is being billed as "A New Orleans Christmas."

Richard Lloyd, Bakersfield Breakers, Certain General, Charlie Roth, Deborah Frost, Deer France, Jahn Xavier, James Wynbrandt, Jana Peri, Pin Ups, The Rousers, Tom Wynbrandt, Tuff Darts, Walter Lure, Walter Steding @ Bowery Electric
Tonight's the "Exile on the Bowery" holiday party featuring loads of performers associated with the late-'70s scene, including Television's Richard Lloyd and CBGB mainstays Tuff Darts.

Todd Barry, Brooks Wheelan, Rory Albanese and Mark Serritella @ Gotham Comedy Club
This edition of "ComedyJuice" features the acerbic, understated Todd Barry, and former SNL castmember Brooks Wheelan.

Black Lives Matter, a Fundraising Event for Eric Garner's Family @ SOB's
The lineup isn't announced for this one, but it's one of a few NYC shows this month happening to raise money for the family of Eric Garner.

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

John Cooper Clarke
John Cooper Clarke

We recently mentioned that Miriam, the new recording project of Miriam Linna (Kicks fanzine writer, A-Bones drummer/singer, Norton Records co-founder, etc) released her debut album of garage rock/Phil Spector pop, Nobody's Baby, earlier this year on Norton and that she'll be opening for The Muffs at the NYC stop of their tour happening October 10 at The Bell House with Vivian Girls/Hole-related band Upset (tickets). Before that though, she'll play her first official NYC show ever (she's technically played here before) as Miriam on September 12 at Bowery Electric.

The show is with US punk legend Cheetah Chrome (of Dead Boys and Rocket from the Tombs) and legend in his own right, "bard of Salford" and UK "punk poet" John Cooper Clarke, whose work was likely exposed to a younger, larger audience when Arctic Monkeys used his lyrics on "I Wanna Be Yours" from last year's AM. Mad Juana are also on the bill and Billy Miller of Norton Records will DJ. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

Two days later at the same venue (9/14), both Cheetah and John will appear at the Ramones 40th anniversary celebration (a different one than the one that happened earlier this month) with other punk legends such as Handsome Dick Manitoba (The Dictators), Walter Lure (Johnny Thunders & the Heartbreakers), Ivan Julian (Richard Hell & the Voidoids) and many others. Tickets for that show are on sale now and proceeds will benefit Love Hope Strength. Full lineup here.

John Cooper Clarke also has other US dates around that time including two more in NYC: September 15 at Bowery Poetry Club and September 21 at The Standard Hotel. All of his dates are listed below.

UPDATE: John Cooper Clarke dates are postponed due to visa issues.

Cheetah also has other tour dates, including a solo acoustic set in NYC on September 11 at Niagara (112 Ave A), which is free. All of his dates are listed below as well.

Future Punx

King Buzzo w/ Melvins Lite at MHOW in 2012 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
King Buzzo

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

Future Punx, Eaters, Final Bloom, Royal Garde @ Rockaway Beach Surf Club (BV/Dull Tools presents)
Its a day of sun, sand, and post-punk with this beach party we're throwing with the good folks at Dull Tools, featuring their roster's Future Punx and Eaters, plus likeminded Final Bloom and Royal Garde. The fun starts at 3 PM and, yes, you can see the World Cup final there too. FREE. (Rain or shine.) Hope to see you there. UPDATE: The show will be moved to the surf club's indoor space, and bands start immediately after the World Cup game ends (around 4:30).

Bonobo, Cibo Matto, Odesza @ Central Park Summerstage
On record, UK producer Bonobo makes delicate downtempo but he's been known to flesh it out with instrumentation and vocals live. Cibo Matto, who are very much back in action now, make this a great double bill.

King Buzzo, Mary Halvorson @ Santos Party House
With the Melvins, Buzz Osborne has made some of the dirtiest sludge there is, but he's gone soft on us and put out on acoustic record. Of course, even King Buzzo acoustic still rocks pretty hard.

Ash Borer, Hell, Vilkacis, Mongrel @ Acheron
Ash Borer and their doomy tourmates Hell play this all-ages matinee show that was originally supposed to happen at 538 Johnson but is now at Acheron.

Gary Clark Jr. @ The Surf Lodge
It's always nice to spend a weekend away from NYC in the Hamptons, and if you're doing that this weekend, you won't wanna miss this free show from blues shredder Gary Clark Jr.

Emma Ruth Rundle, Stephen Brodsky, Jason Bartell @ Saint Vitus
Emma Ruth Rundle has been in various bands over the years, but this year she went solo and put out an excellent album of melancholic folk that any fans of her labelmate Chelsea Wolfe should dig. Good bill all around too with Cave In's Stephen Brodksy and Fang Island's Jason Bartell.

Phish @ Randall's Island
Get your drug rugs on and prepare for the third of 3 days of endless jams on Randall's Island.

The Burlies @ Mercury Lounge
Though The Dismemberment Plan are back in action, singer Travis Morrison also stays busy with other projects, including indie rock band The Burlies.

Kyp Malone, Matana Roberts / Ryan Sawyer @ Union Pool
TV on the Radio's Kyp Malone plays solo this afternoon (2PM), and opening is a duo set from avant-garde jazz great Matana Roberts and Thurston Moore collaborator Ryan Sawyer. FREE.

Johnny Thunders Birthday Bash @ Bowery Electric
A bunch of the old punks are coming together to celebrate the late, great Johnny Thunders' birthday including Walter Lure of Thunders' band The Heartbreakers, Ivan Julian of Richard Hell & the Voidoids, and more.

Alpenglow, Caroline Rose, Lapland @ Baby's All Right
Alpenglow, who recently moved from Burlington to Brooklyn, make a great mix of psychedelic-leaning indie folk and dream pop. They have a new EP on the way and will likely show us some of that tonight.

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

Color Me Obsessed

Color Me Obsessed, a film about The Replacements, will be screening at a number of film festivals and other venues this year and next year.

The film will premiere in NYC on November 16 and 17 at Bowery Electric.

We're excited to announce that, along with Bowery Electric, we're presenting MATS CITY, a Replacements tribute show that will take place at Bowery Electric after each screening.

Note that exact lineups for each date are TBA. Some performers may only be playing one day.

Johnny Thunders

Johnny Thunders would turn 59 Friday (7/15) and his birthday is being celebrated tonight (7/14) at D-Generationer Jesse Malin's LES club Bowery Electric. There will be a number of artists performing including Heartbreaker Walter Lure's The Waldos, Oddball Alison Gordy, Pillbox who are apparently reuniting, and many others that are listed below. There will also reportedly be some special guests including ex-Dead Boy Jeff Magnum (NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH JEFF MANGUM OF NEUTRAL MILK HOTEL), Jesse Malin, Andy Shernoff of The Dictators, Lenny Kaye and many others.

Many of those playing appeared on the 2009 "Skykrebs Records"-released "Born To Lose" tribute 3CD Boxed set. That includes Krebs & The Maynard G's, The Waldos and Alison Gordy.

Trouser Press writes of Pillbox:

Before there was a Strokes to make it safe as milk, the snarly glam punk spirit of the Stooges, New York Dolls and Dead Boys lived for a time in the skinnyassed tattooed bodies of Pillbox, a New York quartet which offered a skankier, more menacing and less theatrical alternative to the likeminded and better-known D Generation.
Check out the Pillbox video for "Holly" below.

D Generation plays reunion shows in September at bigger venues.

Lenny Kaye, who will supposedly be a special guest at the show tonight, is a longtime member of the Patti Smith Group. Patti Smith plays a free show at Castle Clinton tonight (7/15). Don't forget that, "FREE TICKETS AVAILABLE FIRST-COME, FIRST-SERVED AT THE GATE STARTING AT 5PM. DOORS OPEN AT 6PM." People are already in line as of 2pm. It would be cool of Patti ended up at the Johnny Thunders party afterwards too.

Full Bowery Electric lineup and the Pillbox video below...

I didn't even know it closed, but Don Pedro's (90 Manhattan Avenue b/w Boerum & McKibben) is now under new management and they closed down the "East Williamsburg" venue "just after new year's" to make some "minor improvements." To celebrate the reopening they've booked '14 bands in 4 nights.' The party kicks off Thursday, January 27th with a Rockabilly evening, continues Friday with "Oops Baby Records" night headlined by Baltimore's The Flying Eyes, brings in some CBGB legends on Saturday with the Richard Lloyd Band and The Waldos featuring Walter Lure, and ends on Sunday with a lineup of all one-man acts. Check out the flyer with more details below...
