Boris at Le Poisson Rouge in 2013 (more by PSquared Photography)
boris

Japan's genre chameleons Boris will begin touring North America at the end of the month with a number of supporting acts. On August 3, they'll be dropping into NYC's Bowery Ballroom with the Atlas Moth and SubRosa. They've since added another NYC show happening day after, August 4 at Saint Vitus, where they'll play a special "drumless drone" set with Youth Worship opening. Tickets for that show are available now.

Boris released their newest album, the summery and rocking Noise, in June. Youth Worship is the new project of former Asobi Seksu guitarist/vocalist James Hanna. The band released an EP, Youth Worship EP1, in January that pairs pop with overdriven guitars. They'll also be playing Rough Trade NYC on August 14 with Weeknight and Bootblacks. Tickets for that show are available now, as well.

Updated Boris dates are listed, with a recent two-hour Boris performance with Merzbow and a Youth Worship stream, below...

Weeknight

You may remember that Brooklyn duo Weeknight released their haunted, lonesome debut album, Post-Everything, digitally back in March. The record just got a vinyl release via Artificial Records, and the band's sound -- not too far from The Raveonettes and Handsome Furs -- should sound excellent on wax. One of the standout tracks from the album, "Honey," just got the video treatment via director Sean Cartwright. It follows a retiree about his day, and the song definitely adds an element of melancholy to his solo excursion. It premieres in this post and you can watch it below.

Weeknight, who just played with Leverage Models in NYC last week, have a short string of dates lined up for next month that end with a show at Brooklyn's Baby's All Right on June 24. Color War, Sandy, and Heathered Pearls (DJ) are also on the bill, and tickets are on sale now.

All dates are listed, along with the new video, below...

The Pains of Being Pure at Heart at SXSW 2014 (more by Steven Noreyko)
Pains

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

The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Fear Of Men, Ablebody @ Bowery Ballroom
With a killer new lineup of the band and an enjoyable new album, dare we say Pains are better than ever? This tour -- with terrific UK band Fear of Men and Ablebody (who are also in TPOBPAH lineup -- is a can't miss for indiepop fans.

Death Cab For Cutie, Hamilton Leithauser @ Capitol Theatre
It's been a while since Death Cab went on a proper tour but they'll remedy that by kicking off a short Northeast run tonight. This one's just outside of NYC and also includes Walkmen frontman Hamilton Leithauser, which should make for a good double bill of two artists who put out some of the more memorable indie songs of the 2000s.

TEEN, Icewater @ Baby's All Right
Teen's second album take's the band formerly dronepop sound and drags it into '90s R&B territory. Tonight's the record release show for that LP.

Reigning Sound, Nude Beach @ Brooklyn Bowl
Reigning Sound, the Memphis garage rock band led by Greg Oblivian, signed to Merge back in 2012 and they're now set to release their first album for the label, Shattered, which comes out on July 15. Expect new songs tonight.

Ex-Cult, Pampers @ Mercury Lounge
Speaking of Memphis, that city's ragers Ex-Cult just released their new album, Midnight Passenger, that balances sneering rippers with a few moody extended jams. This is their first of two NYC shows this weekend, tonight with Brooklyn "thug pop" band Pampers (who are great).

Cass McCombs, Endless Boogie @ MHOW
Cass McCombs released a whopper of a double album last year -- the acclaimed Big Wheel and Others and between that and the two albums he released in 2012 (not to mention all his other albums), he's got a lot choose from. Prediction: he plays at least a few brand-new songs tonight.

Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars, Okayafrica Electrafique, Chief Boima, DJ Underdog @ Brooklyn Bridge Park
To quote Wikipedia, Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars is a band from Sierra Leone which was formed by a group of refugees displaced to Guinea during the Sierra Leone Civil War. This show is one of Celebrate Brooklyn's free dance parties and runs from 7-10 PM.

Manchester Orchestra, Balance and Composure, Kevin Devine @ Terminal 5
Expect an overload of massive alt-rock riffs from Manchester Orchestra and Balance & Composure tonight, and things should get a little softer (but not too much) during Kevin Devine's opening set.

Prizehog, Insect Ark, Stephen Brodsky, Colomboid @ Cake Shop
Things should get pretty dark at Cake Shop tonight with Insect Ark (former Angels of Light member Dana Schechter), Cave In singer Stephen Brodsky, and more.

Leverage Models, Weeknight, Long Arms @ Cameo Gallery
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.

The Golden Grass, Verma, Ecstatic Vision @ Death by Audio
Chicago's Verma intertwine elements of gothy post-punk, krautrock, Eno-esque ambience and Detroit-style burners into a heavy, groovy psych sound. Their new album on Trouble in Mind is excellent.

Simian Mobile Disco (DJ Set), BICEP, Daniel Avery, JDH & Dave P @ Output
The always-fun dance duo Simian Mobile Disco return to NYC to DJ Output's weekly Input party with their collaborator Bicep, Factory Floor's pal Daniel Avery, and FIXED regulars JDH & Dave P.

Andrew W.K. in conversation with Phillip Crandall @ Strand Bookstore
Phillip Crandall wrote the 33 1/3 series book on Andrew WK's 2001 debut, I Get Wet, and tonight he discusses it with AWK himself. Free admittance with purchase of the I Get Wet book.

'We Are the Best' screening w/ Petal War @ Trilock Fusion Center for the Arts
Though writer/director Lukas Moodysson has gone to dark places in the past (Lilya 4-Ever? Yikes) this is a sweet, funny movie about three misfit 13-year-olds who decide to start a punk band in 1982 Stockholm. If some bad language isn't a problem, it makes a good family film. This is being screened as part of Rooftop films with a live performance from the very appropriate PetalWar.

'Upside Down: The Creation Records Story' @ Videology
Part of BV editor Bill Pearis' "Sound & Vision" series at Videology, tonight features the documentary about the label that gave us The Jesus & Mary Chain, My Bloody Valentine, Oasis and many more. It's an entertaining and very rock-n-roll film (though the Scottish accents are THICK). Bill's DJing afterwards and they're giving away a pass to this year's NYC Popfest at the screening. Free.

Michael Hurley @ Union Pool
Having spent time in the '60 Greenwich Village scene with his work covered by Holy Modal Rounders and others, acclaimed folk songwriter and performer Michael Hurley has remained active and prolific into his '70s. Advance tickets of tonight's show are sold out, but a limited amount will be available at the door.

Unholy Grave, Birdflesh, Mesrine, War Master, Entrails @ Saint Vitus
Unfortunately, Excruciating Terror had to drop off this show but it's stacked regardless. Japanese grinder Unholy Grave return for their first NYC appearance since 2006, Swedish grinders Birdflesh make their first NYC appearance ever, Canada's Mesrine and Swden's Entrails both make their US debuts tonight, and the bill's rounded out by ex-Insect Warfare Bolt Thrower worshippers War Master.

Erik Friedlander @ Subculture
Avant-garde cellist and John Zorn cohort Erik Friedlander celebrates the release of his new album, Nitehawks, which features (like this show) his Bonebridge Band.

Direct Effect, The Saddest Landscape, Rescuer, Capacities @ Suburbia
It's a stacked bill of post-hardcore at Suburbia tonight with Direct Effect who have sort of a Fucked Up/Paint It Black thing going on, The Saddest Landscape and Rescuer who are both in the Touche Amore/PBTT vein, and Capacities who are the most metallic band on the bill.

LVL UP, Kite Party, Three Man Cannon, Downies @ David Blaine's The Steakhouse
Philly bands Kite Party and Three Man Cannon (ex-Tigers Jaw) are currently on tour together, and likeminded in that they're decidedly non-punk bands coming from a punk scene. Local regulars LVL UP headline and openers Downies include members of both LVL UP and Porches.

Stone Jack Jones, Coupler, LYLAS, Wooden Wand @ The Delancey
Nashville folk singer Stone Jack Jones is currently touring as a "Nashville circus" which brings him and other Nashville pals together for a unique show. Moved to The Delancey from Mercury Lounge.

UPDATE: both the Ex-Cult show and the Stone Jack Jones show at Mercury Lounge were cancelled due to a giant sinkhole outside of Katz's Deli. They may be moved to other venues, stay tuned.

UPDATE 2: Stone Jack Jones moved to The Delancey.

UPDATE 3: Ex-Cult moved to Fontana's.

BDOD
Young & Sick

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

Young & Sick, Yellerkin @ Baby's All Right
Young & Sick is the somewhat mysterious R&B project of "Nick" who used to record as Japayork and has done album artwork for famous artists like Foster the People, Maroon 5 and Robin Thicke. Nick and his band (they're a trio live) are playing their first-ever live shows this week, and tonight's their NYC debut. Will it live up to the hype?

Weeknight, Courtship Ritual, Certain Creatures @ Mercury Lounge
If you like the darker, dustier side of The Ravoenettes, you might want to check out Brooklyn band Weeknight who mine a similar territory. Their debut album, due in about a month, is a nice wintry listen.

Honduras, Coastgaard, High Waisted, Behaviors @ Pianos
Uber-catchy Brooklynites Coastgaard begin their February residency at Pianos tonight with three other hand-picked bands.

This is Head, Robins Egg Blue @ Cake Shop
Malmö, Sweden's This is Head just got their debut album released in North America and are over for a few East Coast shows. This is the first of two NYC ones.

Bass Drum of Death, Shadow Walker, Low Fat Getting High @ Union Pool

Jacco Gardner @ Mercury Lounge in March (more by PSquared Photography)
Jacco

One of the best parts about CMJ is the day shows that are often free and give you a chance to see live music and grab a bev on your lunch break (or call in sick). To give you a chance to plan your early afternoon ahead of time, we're giving you tomorrow's (Thursday's) daytime picks today (Wednesday). You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all shows, and here are some highlights...

The Bots, TV Girl, Gems, The Preatures, Wild Club, Holychild, The Everywheres, School of Night, J Fernandez, The Range @ Pianos
Fellow music blog I Guess I'm Floating is back with its Floatingfest CMJ party on both floors of Pianos. A good chance to check out Australian CMJ buzz-band The Preatures and LA's TV Girl (one of our CMJ picks).

Satellite, The Darcys, Keren Ann, Mood Rings, Kan Wakan @ Ace Hotel (FREE)
If you like your day parties somewhere a bit fancier, you can catch Atlanta's atmospheric Mood Rings, Canadians The Darcys, Keren Ann and more for free in the lobby of the posh Ace Hotel. Music starts early here (11 AM).

Caged Animals, Echo Friendly, School of Night, Julia Weldon, Bent Shapes, The Moondoggies, J Fernandez, Slow Down Molasses @ Cake Shop (FREE)
This is NYC Taper's annual day party and he's always got a lot of good bands playing, including Boston's Bent Shapes and locals Caged Animals. Can't make the show? He'll have downloadable recordings sometime after.

Ski Lodge, Au Revoir Simone, Saint Rich, Wild Club @ Judson Memorial Church (FREE)
Broadcasting from Judson Memorial Church (part of CMJ Fest HQ), KEXP brings in some of the week's biggest bands for live on-air performances that you can attend too.

Half Moon Run, Ghost Wave, Traumahelikopter, Birth of Joy, Prata Vetra, Instrumenti @ Knitting Factory (FREE)
Filter Magazine brings its Culture Collide festival to NYC in day party form with a pretty good line-up, including Montreal's Half Moon Run and New Zealand's Ghost Wave who are better than their name may have led to to believe.

Jacco Gardner, Ghost Wave, Tweens, Doug Keith, Casual Sex, John Murry, Ski Lodge @ Mission Sound Recording (FREE)
This is a pretty killer line-up, playing at Williamsburg recording studio Mission Sound Recording. Jacco Gardner and Tweens both made our list of 30 Artists to Check Out and we dig Ski Lodge and Ghost Wave as well.

Ratking, Ava Luna, Jamaican Queens, Krill, Calvin Love, Crispy Hexx, Young Oprah Winfrey @ Muchmore's (FREE)
This free My Social List day party features indie rappers Ratking, funk-punk collective Ava Luna, nasally indie rockers Krill, lo-fi pop dude Calvin Love and more. Noon-6.

Kirin J Callinan, TOPS, Pegasus Warning, Shy Hunters, Weeknight @ Bowery Electric ($5)
Sam Mickens is throwing this $5 day party at Bowery Electric (or free with CMJ badge), that's being headlined at 5 PM by crazy weird one-man band Kirin J Callinan, who is sure to put the "party" in "day party." Arbutus-signed Montreal band TOPS is on right before him at 4:15 and they're worth catching too.

Psychic Twin, Diamond Bones, Manicanparty, Palehound, Dark North, Clementine and the Galaxy, And the Kids
The band we most want to see at this one is Palehound, who is about to release her Bent Nail EP (stream it on Stereogum) on Exploding In Sound Records (the former home of her friends Speedy Ortiz). It's an excellent EP, pulling equally from quiet anti-folk and abrasive noise rock. She's on at 4 PM.

For all NYC shows, check out our full NYC show calendar.

DDGs @ T5, CMJ 2012 (more by Gretchen Robinette)
Dum Dum Girls

It's been a little over a year since Dum Dum Girls released the excellent End of Daze EP. Their third album has been in the works for a while now, with much of the recording happening this past spring in LA with usual suspects Richard Gottehrer and Sune Rose Wagner behind the boards. No release date for record has been announced yet. Dum Dum Girls did, however, record the theme song for Cartoon Network's animated series Beware the Batman that debuted over the summer. You can check it out in the show's opening title sequence below.

Dum Dum Girls are also playing some shows in January, though right now there are only dates for NYC and LA. The New York show happens at Mercury Lounge on January 30. Tickets go on sale Friday (10/4) at noon with an AmEx presale starting Wednesday (9/2) at noon. Might those be record release shows? We shall see.

Meanwhile, half of the DDGs (Sandy and Jules) will be in NYC during CMJ as part of SISU. Four shows have been announced: 10/16 at The Flat with Total Slacker, Hunters, Weekend and Habibi ($8 at the door); 10/17 at Shea Stadium with Billy Woods, Wreck & Reference, YC The Cynic, Guardian Alien, and Odonis Odonis; 10/18 at The Delancey w/ Thomas Azier, Psychic Twin, Spirit Animal, LE TROUBLE, Raccoon Fighter, and SWF (FREE); and 10/19 Union Pool with King Dude, Weeknight, and Zig Zags (tickets).

Dum Dum Girls and SISU dates are listed, along with the Beware the Batman theme, below.

inc. / Autre Ne Veut @ Pianos, 5/11/2013
Inc.
Autre Ne Veut

In the cramped back room of Pianos, the workhorse LES bar where the show took place, there is no backstage or side stairway, meaning the only way to the stage is to barge your way directly through the heart of the crowd. The brothers Daniel and Andrew Aged of Inc. broke the ranks cleanly, though, transfixing audience members with the intensity of their attire long enough make their way unencumbered. The brothers, one with a shaved head, the other with slick black locks cropped on the sides and pulled into a knot on top, were dressed in full '90s all-black goth regalia, complete with asymmetrical sweaters, loose-fitting jeans and heavy boots. inc.'s music can be traced back to the '90s too, but it's rooted in the slick, sensual R&B of Playa and Jodeci rather than anything that was happening in the goth or punk scene. It's as if they stumbled into a Taye Diggs movie on their way out of Hot Topic. - [Billboard]
As you may know, the Downtown Music Festival (or DTF as it was known on shirts, maybe not the best acronym) happened last weekend across NYC clubs below Houston St. One of the more packed shows was at tiny Ludlow St. spot Pianos for Inc., Autre Ne Veut and Weeknight. The sexytime R&B vibes of Autre Ne Veut and Inc. played really well back to back in such a small room. Opener Weeknight brought Phantogram-style vibes for a nice kickoff to the evening.

Inc play NYC again at Music Hall of Williamsburg on July 14. Tickets to that show go on sale Wednesday (5/15) at noon.

Other Saturday night DTF shows were DIIV at Mercury Lounge and Purity Ring at Bowery Ballroom. More pictures from Pianos are below.

School of Seven Bells

School of Seven Bells played Music Hall of Williamsburg at the end of January (1/31) with Prince Rama and Weeknight and we've got a belated set of pics from that show in this post.

Since that show the band revealed some bad news: SVIIB guitarist Benjamin Curtis is battling cancer, having been diagnosed with T-cell Lymphoblastic Lymphoma. Singer Alejandra de la Deheza wrote on the band's Facebook that "it developed pretty aggressively, and the chemotherapy to treat it will be pretty aggressive, but the good news is that it's TREATABLE." Curtis wrote recently:

The love you've all shown me this weekend has touched me in a way I've never felt before. It's such a huge feeling that, despite the terrible circumstances, I can't help but feel like the luckiest guy on the planet to be surrounded by such beautiful energy. The cancer has affected my eye in a way that makes it a bit hard for me to read and type at the moment, but I do hope to respond to as many of you as I can as that changes. Please bear with me. Until then, keep your thoughts with me and I'll be keeping mine with you. I'm gonna beat this for you just as much as I am for myself. xB
Included with that Facebook post was an Instagram pic from the hospital which you can see below. Our thoughts are with you Benjamin. More pictures from their MHOW show below too...

School of Seven Bells @ Doc Martens Union Square - 1/16/13
School of Seven Bells

Danceable BrooklynitesSchool of Seven Bells play locally a lot, and as you know they've got a Music Hall of Williamsburg show (1/31) at the end of the month, which fellow Brooklynites Prince Rama and Weeknight were added to (tickets).

But the band also just played a less traditional show in NYC last week. They stopped by Union Square for a show at the Doc Martens' store. They played a five song set (setlist below) and then returned to play "Scavenger," which wasn't on the setlist. The show was free and those in attendance were also treated to free beverages, courtesy of Goose Island and AQUAhydrate, and for the fast food lovers... White Castle. Aaron Pfenning of Rewards provided tunes before SVIIB came on. Pictures of both artists are in this post.

School of Seven Bells also recently stopped by Bait and Tackle in Red Hook, Brooklyn to perform an acoustic version of "Scavenger" for Geocachers in one of the bar's booths. The video of that performance, plus videos of SVIIB at the Doc Martens store, along with more pictures from that show, below...

Merchandise at Mousetrap in Chicago, April 2012 (more by Jimmy Farabi)
Merchandise

You may have noticed the announcements of CMJ artists trickling out as of late (like Sub Pop's lineup), but now comes the official word from the fest on another batch of bands. Highilights include AraabMUZIK, UK acts Savages and Everything EveythingMr. Muthafuckin' eXquire, Cities Aviv, Ken Mode (playing with Pig Destroyer), Daughn Gibson (playing with Pissed Jeans), Local H, Slug Guts, Dune Rats, Royal Canoe, and Sleepies among many many others. A full listing of the second round of CMJ artists is below.

One of said surprises is Merchandise, who plays NYC tonight at WIERD (9/12). The show is first of THREE NYC dates for the band, who will also play 538 Johnson tomorrow (9/13) before hitting Saint Vitus on Friday (9/14, tickets).

A list of the second round of CMJ artists is below, along with updated Merchandise dates and a recent video.

Slowdance at Le Poisson Rouge, Sept. 2011 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Slowdance

Friday (6/22) marks the first of this year's Seaport Music Festival shows down at Pier 17 with Portland's Miracle's Club. The theatrical disco revelers have just released a new compilation called Ecstacy which features "15 new tracks from our friends and collaborators across the globe." You can stream it below.

Immediately following the show there's a free after-party with Slowdance and Weeknight at Skipper's outdoor bar, which is located right next door at Pier 16.

Slowdance just released a new single, "Boyfriend," which came out via White Iris earlier this month which is an airy, danceable summmer type single if I ever heard one. I'm actually kind of partial to the b-side, "Airports," which drives along with a motorik chug and French lyrics. Both sides are streamable below. This is Slowdance's only upcoming show.

Weeknight, meanwhile, seem to have been together not very long at all. (Their Facebook page is about a month old.) The duo, who only go by their first names (Holly and Andy) make drum machine and twang lonesome West type music not that far off from more recent Raveonettes. You can stream a few tracks at the bottom of this post. Weeknight are also playing July 14 at Cameo.
