Eyehategod at Acheron in July (more by Mathieu Bredeau)
Eyehategod

In welcome news that shouldn't be particularly surprising, after a year of hard touring behind their excellent new self-titled LP, Eyehategod will continue playing a bunch of shows in 2015. They've announced a two-night NYC run happening at Saint Vitus on February 6 and 7. The shows will feature excellent support -- the first night featuring crusty Brooklyn crushers Mortals, who also released a great album, Cursed to See the Future, this year, and just finished touring with Wolvhammer. That first night lineup is filled out by two more Brooklyn bands, the sludgy Blackout and the grindcore outfit Scowl.

The second night will be find Eyehategod joined by absolutely filthy PA grinders Full Of Hell, who recently put out a collaborative album with Merzbow and are also opening for American Nightmare at Webster Hall (sold out). Night 2 also has local doom/electronic project Cleanteeth and New Jersey sludge crew Clamfight. Tickets for both shows are on sale now.

Meanwhile, Eyehategod's Mike IX Williams on tour now with his other band Corrections House, having hit Saint Vitus this past Monday.

All upcoming Eyehategod dates listed, along with streams from some of the openers, below...

NAAM at Saint Vitus, 2013 (more by Greg Cristman)
naam

Sludgefeast is set to bring a slow, low, and mind-expanding show to Brooklyn on November 15. The Bent Unit and Some Pig presented event is headlined by psych rockers NAAM and White Hills and will take place at Brooklyn's the Paper Box. Tickets are available now for a reduced price presale of $15. The full 11 band lineup appears in the flyer posted below.

NAAM released Vow on Tee Pee Records in 2013, drawing raves from those that enjoy tripping into warm, heady reveries of early psych and krautrock. White Hills, who released Glitter Glamour Atrocity on Thrill Jockey this year, follow the same path with a harsher result, reaching space with a biting guitar tone and plenty of noise. Both outfits are pretty familiar with each other, releasing a split together with Black Rainbows and the Flying Eyes back in May.

The rest of the bill includes Blackout's low-end-heavy howls, Wonderbreed's shrine to the stoner riff, It's Not Night: It's Space's infectious grooves and fried solos, and Eidetic Seeing's desert-y twang. A sampler of all the bands appears, along with the full lineup flyer, below...

White Lung at 4Knots 2013 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
White Lung

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

White Lung, Mormon Crosses, Flykills @ Glasslands
White Lung continue to push punk's boundaries while keeping things quick and heavy on their new album, Deep Fantasy. Their live shows are only more intense.

Sun Araw's Blazer Double Double, Man Forever, Hiro Kone, Blazer Sound System @ Baby's All Right
Experimental musician Sun Araw plays his first of two shows of the week at Baby's All Right tonight. Strong support both nights too.

Potty Mouth, Aye Nako, Arm Candy @ Cake Shop
It's a good bill all around for scrappy, poppy punk at Cake Shop tonight with Massachusetts' Potty Mouth and two NYC bands, Aye Nako and Arm Candy.

What Cheer Brigade, Ed Schrader's Music Beat, Juiceboxxx @ Death By Audio
Providence street brass band What Cheer? Brigade headline this show that also features fun Baltimore drums-and-bass duo Ed Schrader's Music Beat, and a live-band incarnation of Juiceboxxx (who will also be celebrating his birthday tonight).

Slonk Donkerson, Le Rug, Vetter Kids, Sativa Cult @ Palisades
Good bill at Palisades tonight with local indie rock from Slonk Donkerson and Le Rug, and punk band Vetter Kids coming over from Texas.

Ovlov, Krill, Mannequin Pussy, Garcia Peoples @ Shea Stadium
Though this bill initially had Little Big League on it, they unfortunately dropped off. On the bright side, there's still plenty of quality indie rock from the rest of the bands.

Aa, Zula, Baked, Bueno @ Trans-Pecos
Aa put out their first new album in a while this year which is full of live-band-meets-electronics weirdness. Tonight they're joined by psych popsters Zula and indie rockers Baked and Bueno.

Dave Hill, Greg Barris, Larry Murphy @ Union Hall
Funny guy, occasional shirtless concertgoer and BV contributor Dave Hill will be recording his new comedy album tonight. Good luck, Dave! Sold out.

American Sharks, Blackout, Ice Balloons @ Saint Vitus
Tonight Vitus hosts stoner rock from American Sharks, art punk from the TVOTR-related Ice Balloons and more.

High Contrast, Dave Q, Raw Q, DJ Seoul @ Output
Welsh drum and bass DJ and producer High Contrast (real name Lincoln Barrett) burst onto the scene at the start of the '00s and almost instantly became the biggest thing to happen to the genre since Roni Size and Goldie. He's been going strong ever since, most recently on 2012's The Agony & the Ecstasy.

Aerosmith, Slash @ Prudential Center
Two rock giants come together at Prudential Center tonight. Prepare your air guitars.

Big Terrific Comedy Show @ Cameo
Max Silvestri hosts the free weekly comedy show in the back of Williamsburg's Lovin' Cup. No word on who's performing tonight, but Max usually lets us know via his Twitter.

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

Kanye West at Governors ball 2013 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Kanye

Browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows. Here are some highlights...

Kanye West, Kendrick Lamar @ Barclays Center
Kanye's got two of the biggest, if not the biggest, rap albums of the current decade under his belt, and an elaborate stage show to deliver the material live. Plus he's got one of the best current younger rappers opening tonight's show.

Cut Copy @ Le Poisson Rouge
Australian synth pop band Cut Copy returned with their new album Free Your Mind this year, and tonight they play their first NYC show since its release. It's a free, intimate, NPR/KCRW taping, and though it's "sold" out, if you didn't get tickets you can stream it online.

Metric @ Bowery Ballroom
Speaking of bigger bands in intimate venues, Metric, who just opened for Paramore at MSG and last headlined Radio City Music Hall in NYC, returns for this small show at Bowery Ballroom tonight. Sold out of course.

Mavis Staples @ City Winery
Soul legend Mavis Staples (of The Staple Singers) is still very active, touring consistently and continuing to release new music (including this year's Jeff Tweedy of Wilco-produced One True Vine). Tonight she returns to NYC for her second time this year for a three-night run at City Winery.

Been Trill, L-Vis 1990, Total Freedom, Purity Ring (DJ Set), MXM / Sang Bleu London @ Output
This whole bill should keep you dancing all night, but it will be especially exciting to see what Purity Ring's got in store. Their DJ set at CMJ featured some guest appearances and we heard it got pretty crazy.

Lena Dunham, David Sedaris @ Carnegie Hall
Before author and humorist David Sedaris takes over Carnegie Hall by himself, he'll hook up tonight with Girls creator and star Lena Dunham for "an insightful evening of reading and conversation" on the same stage.

Trademark Da Skydiver, Young Roddy, Ken Rebel, DJ Two Three, Dice The God, Cannibal Ox @ Marlin Room at Webster Hall
Underground hip hop vets Cannibal Ox have been playing shows again lately, and though they don't headline this one, it's another chance to see the duo back in action.

Dan Deacon (DJ), Paz @ Cedar Lake
To quote Dan, he's "DJing a free weird event tomorrow during a video game tournament." You do need to RSVP.

Jack White, Dean and Scott Blackwood, Daphne A. Brooks, and Greil Marcus @ New York Public Library
This is a discussion about Third Man Records new, massive The Rise and Fall of Paramount Records 1917-1932 box set. Sold out.

Tree, Illmind @ Glasslands
Tree's been doing pretty well in his local Chicago hip hop scene, and tonight we'll get a chance to see him do it in NYC.

Midnight Eye, Blackout, Surgeon, Throaat @ Acheron
Epic shred commence: DC's Midnight Eye team up with BK's own Blackout (who have the best band pic ever) and Philly's Surgeon for a night of trad-leaning, capital-letters Heavy Metal. Extra local support from local black/thrashers Throaat.

Omar Souleyman @ SXSW 2013 (more by Tim Griffin)
Omar Souleyman

Browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows. Here are some highlights...

CT5 w/ DIIV, Mac DeMarco, Blouse, MINKS, Chris Cohen, Heavenly Beat @ The Well
Brooklyn label Captured Tracks celebrates its fifth birthday this weekend with a two-day celebration featuring mos of the bands on their roster. It's a pretty killer line-up tonight, too.

Summer Thunder w/ Daniel Higgs, Thurston Moore, Nate Wooley, Ryan Sawyer @ Union Pool (FREE)
This weekend's edition on Summer Thunder has been put together by drummer Ryan Sawyer and he'll play as part of an improv trio featuring trumpet man Nate Wooley and some dude named Thurston Moore. Lungfish's Daniel Higgs is on the bill too, and while this show may not be the most listener-friendly music, a chance to see two indie rock icons for free in a small space is a chance you may not want to pass up. 2PM, 21+.

Cajmere, Liars, IO Echo, Lil Silva, Jon Hopkins, Sam Valenti IV @ MoMA PS1
Another strong lineup (as usual) at this week's Warm Up with sets from three excellent electronic musicians: Chicago house vet Cajmere, post-rock-meets-dance producer Jon Hopkins and poppy UK producer Lil Silva; two live bands: Liars and IO Echo; and a DJ set from Ghostly founder Sam Valenti IV.

Omar Souleyman, Bobb Trimble, 75 Dollar Bill, Steve Gunn @ Pioneer Works
Brooklyn's Issue Project Room is celebrating a decade of experimental, avant-garde and generally eclectic programming with a two-month festival called Ten Years on the Infinite Plain. It kicks off tonight at Red Hook's Pioneer Works with a show featuring -- in what is now extremely timely booking -- Syrian musical legend Omar Souleyman, plus performances by Bobb Trimble's Flying Spiders, 75 Dollar Bill, and Steve Gunn. Tickets are still available.

Electric Zoo @ Randall's Island
While Electric Zoo may be widely known for some cringeworthy electronic music, they've also got enough good stuff to warrant going. Today (day 2 of 3) we get sets from Moderat, A-Trak, AraabMuzik, Chris Malinchak, Just Blaze, RL Grime and more.

The Dwarves, The Queers @ Le Poisson Rouge
Obnoxious is an understatement, but they wouldn't have it any other way. Both The Dwarves AND The Queers will team up for a night of snotty punk rock at Le Poisson Rouge. Expect stage dives, childish humor, and lots of fun.

Wrekmeister Harmonies, Spreaders, I Say Fuck @ End Records Omega Warehouse
Yes, the Wrekmeister Harmonies "Big Band" is back for a second round, this time a FREE show at The End Records Omega Warehouse. The show is FREE, BYOB and lets get nuts.

Modeselektor (DJ set), Rudimental (DJ set), Delta Heavy @ Best Buy Theater (Electric Zoo Afterparty)
One of the better Electric Zoo afterparties happens tonight with DJ sets from IDM wizards (and Thom Yorke collaborators) Modeselektor and pop/house/drum & bass crossover band Rudimental.

Shigeto, Beacon, Heathered Pearls @ Bowery Ballroom
Speaking of Ghostly, it's all Ghostly bill at Bowery Ballroom tonight with sets from electronic (or electronic-leaning) musicians Shigeto, Beacon, and Heathered Pearls. Not exactly the type to get you dancing, but you should be able to viiiiiibe.

Jon Hopkins, Paul Raffaele, Justin Strauss @ Cameo Gallery
After Jon Hopkins blesses the Warm Up crowd with an appearance, he'll head to Williamsburg for a midnight show at Cameo. With two openers on this bill, be prepared to stay out late.

Rhett Miller @ City Winery
The Old '97s frontman is back in NYC for a relatively intimate performance sure to please both audiophiles and oenophiles alike.

Martial Canterel @ 285 Kent (more by Fred Pessaro)
Martial Canterel

Martial Canterel, Figure Study, FORMA, Hot Guts @ Cameo Gallery
Xeno & Oaklander's Sean McBride headlines under his Martial Canterel guise for a night of minimal synth, darkwave and general gothiness.

Grooms, The Flag, Slavve @ Death By Audio
Grooms' new album, Infinity Caller, may well be their best yet, with big hooks duking it out with their signature guitar noise. Tonight's the record release party.

Friends, Greatest Hits, Haribo and Test Icicles (DJ set) @ Glasslands
Now down to a trio, Friends soldier on. The most interesting thing about this show may be who's spinning tunes in between sets: Dev and Sam from mid-'00s arch artrockers Test Icicles.

L-Vis 1990, Lil Silva, Slava, Peter Fonda @ Glasslands
Another post-Warm Up option: Lil Silva brings the party to Williamsburg as well. He'll be filling Glasslands with a late-night party that has an all around great lineup joining him.

Main Attrakionz, Cashclick, Shyst, M.U.V.I. @ Knitting Factory
It's been a while since NYC rap duo Main Attrakionz played a hometown show, but if you've been itching to see them, tonight's your chance.

Pictureplane, House of Ladosha, Lil Internet @ Paper Box
If Warm Up (and its related afterparties) and Electric Zoo (and its official afterparties) aren't enough dance options in one day for you, local party starter Pictureplane is giving you one more. He'll be at Paper Box in Brooklyn, and House of Ladosha are no bores on stage either.

Poison Idea @ Cake Shop & Saint Vitus
Poison Idea without the legendary guitarist Pig Champion is a bit iffy... Regardless, the Northwest punk legends have some immortal songs, and you can catch them twice today including a matinee at Saint Vitus.

Black Witchery, Teloch Vovin, vadimVon @ Saint Vitus
War machine Black Witchery will attack Saint Vitus on Saturday night, shrouding Manhattan Avenue in darkness and turning all of Greenpoint into the land of sodom. OK, maybe that was heavy-handed, but it will rule regardless.

Young Adults, Pile, Big Ups, Weird Womb, Flagland @ The Studio at Webster Hall
Every band at this sure-to-be-loud rock show is worth seeing. Two of MA's more promising noisemakers, Young Adults and Pile, are coming over to NYC for the night. Meanwhile, all three locals are regulars on the scene, and always good ones to catch.

Yacht @ The Surf Lodge
YACHT are reliably a good time live and they've got the catchy tunes to back their live show. "Psychic City" and "Dystopia" always make for some good sing/dance-alongs. Doesn't hurt that this is free and outside in an idylic setting. If you're in the Hamptons, of course.

Novelization! w/ Chris Gethard, Eliot Glazer, Kelly Crisp, Liam McEneaney, Marlow Riley, Heidi Vanderlee  @ Union Hall
They don't do it so much anymore, but most movies used to get the quickie novelization treatment. The folks listed above will be reading from novelizations of such works as Home Alone 2. The Goonies, When Harry Met Sally, Crossroads, and so much more.

Wild Yaks, Hector's Pets, Toaster, Blackout, Zula, Kids Row @ Rippers
Your chances to see bands playing at Rockaway's Rippers are dwindling. Take advantage while you can.

Tombs @ Stanhope House (NJ)
Brooklyn's Tombs are looking a lot less Brooklyn-y these days, with three of the four members now living outside of the tri-state area, which means "local" shows are fewer and farther between. Head out to Stanhope, NJ to catch the band with the great Pyrrhon in tow.
