Obits at Union Pool in 2011 (more by Fred Pessaro)
Obits

Because of CMJ, we're doing 'What's Going On' slightly different this week. Each day there's a handful of day shows which are listed first, followed by the night shows. With so many events happening each day, we've limited this to our top picks, but there's a list of other good ones below the fold. And for even more of tonight's shows, you can browse our full NYC show calendar.

DAY SHOWS

Widowspeak, Juan Wauters, Dinner, Homeshake, Mega Bog, Alex Calder, Girl Tears @ Baby's All Right
Captured Tracks has rounded up many of its acts for this day party, including Widowspeak who are playing their only CMJ today. FREE.

Purling Hiss, Mainland, Palehound, Amanda X, Rivergazer, The Kickback, Prettiots, Whiskey Bitches, Beach Day @ Cake Shop
This is NYC Taper's annual day party at Cake Shop, with a good lineup of American indie rock, including Philly's loud, awesome Purling Hiss. If you can't make it (or want to have a document of being there), recordings of all the sets will be on his site soon after. FREE.

Hunters, Gringo Star, Flowers, September Girls, Port Juvee @ Knitting Factory
LA's Culture Collide festival is presenting this day party with a couple imports from across the pond (Flowers, September Girls), Georgia garage rockers Gringo Starr, Brooklyn rabble-rousers Hunters and more. FREE.

Twin Peaks, Happyness, The Wytches, Spring King, Nai Harvest @ Rough Trade
There's not a bad band on this free Rough Trade show with wild Chicago garage rockers Twin Peaks headlining, and otherwise a full lineup of UK bands. There's the '90s-style indie rockers Happyness, psych/garage rippers The Wytches, the punky poppy Spring King, and more '90s-style indie rock (but maybe slightly more '90s "alternative rock") from Nai Harvest.

NIGHT SHOWS

The Kills at Terminal 5 in 2012 (more by Devan Council)
Kills

The Kills, Moon Duo, Nuns, Slothrust @ Bowery Ballroom
This is a VERY intimate show for The Kills, and naturally it's sold out but maybe if you have a badge and get there super early you'll get in. If you are going, don't miss psych rockers Moon Duo.

Ballet School, Money, Marissa Nadler, PINS, Wild Nothing (DJ Set), Simon Raymonde (DJ Set) @ Le Poisson Rouge
This is Bella Union's showcase, which features Manchester's poppy PINS and dream folk singer Marissa Nadler, among others.

The Wytches, Sunflower Bean, Bo Ningen, Tweens, Potty Mouth @ Baby's All Right (early)
This is Baby's All Right's official showcase and it's good the whole night with poppy punks Potty Mouth, poppy garage rockers Tweens, the crazy spectacle of Bo Ningen, young psych rockers Sunflower Bean, and psych/garage rockers The Wytches.

Saint Pepsi, Lydia Ainsworth, Tei Shi, TOPS, Ellie Herring (Ariel Pink Listening party, Sharmir DJ in front room) @ Baby's All Right (late)
After Baby's showcase, it's Gorilla Vs. Bear's late night party with live bands in the back and a listening party for Ariel Pinks' new album -- plus a DJ set from Shamir -- up front.

Beach Fossils, Small Black, Wardell, Fiance @ Brooklyn Bowl
Beach Fossils might now have the cool cache they had a couple years ago, but they remain an engaging, exciting live band. This show is free with CMJ badge or RSVP. $12 at the door.

The Paperhead, Doug Tuttle, Ultimate Painting, The Estrogen Highs, Negative Scanner @ Cake Shop
One of the most reliable small labels in the country, Chicago's Trouble in Mind has an incredible roster of psych, garage and krauty bands. Catch some of them -- including Nashville's The Paperhead, CT's noisy Estrogen Highs, and Veronica Falls offshoot Ultimate Painting -- all in one place. Also: the full Trouble in Mind merch table will be on hand, including rarities, limited edition colored vinyl and other stuff.

White Reaper, Meatbodies, Girlpool, Las Rosas, John Wesley Coleman, LA Witch @ Death By Audio
This free show is presented by KXLU and Burger and features the Polyvinyl-signed garage rockers White Reaper, LA's crunchy Meatbodies, LA lo-fi duo Girlpool, local poppy garage-psych band Las Rosas, Austin's funny and charming John Wesley Coleman, and the femme fatales in LA Witch. Also Burger + DbA + free = bananas potential.

Hamish Anderson, The Ocean Party, Bad//Dreems, The Prettiots, Dreamers, Mainland, Gulp @ DROM
This is the only CMJ show for Gulp, the band featuring Guto Pryce (bassist for Super Furry Animals). If you like tropicalia, krautrock and spaceage bachelor pad music (and Super Furry Animals), you'll wanna be at their 6:45 performance.

Honduras, The #1s, Big Quiet, American Darlings @ Hank's Saloon

Mac McCaughan (of Superchunk), J Fernandez @ HiFi Bar
Mac's been making a habit out of playing solo shows at CMJ, this being the third in a row that he does it. It's just him and an electric guitar, but he otherwise plays a bunch of Superchunk songs and it's a cool thing to experience.

Obits, Protomartyr, Lee Bains III & The Glory Fires, Gem Club, S, Luluc @ Knitting Factory
This is the Sub Pop / Hardly Art showcase and is the glue that holds this otherwise disparate bill together. Go early for the gentler bands, including S, the current project of Former Carissa's Weird singer Jenn Ghetto; get there late for Obit's only CMJ show and Detroit's fiery Protomartyr.

Heat, Avid Dancer, Trixie Whitley, Cheerleader, Bully, Bee Caves @ Mercury Lounge
It's the High Road Touring showcase with Montreal's fuzzed-out Heat, LA's cool pop songwriter Avid Dancer, poppy Nashville punks Bully and more.

Alkaline Trio, frnkiero andthe cellabration @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Grim but melodic punks Alkaline Trio have eight records ranging from pretty good to pretty great, and they'll be playing two in full at each night of this 4-night run at MHOW (it won't be announced which albums are which night). This is night 3, and though all four shows fall during CMJ, they're not part of the fest.

Paul Collins' Beat, Twin Guns, The Johnny's @ Niagara
Former Nerves songwriter and power pop godfather Paul Collins headlines this show at East Village mainstay Niagra.

The Bad Plus, Joshua Light Show / Glasser, Joshua Light Show @ NYU Skirball Center
Using old-school psychedelic "liquid light" projections, Joshua Light Show has been bringing a visual element to pop music since the mid'60s and his team do incredible things. This three-day festival starts tonight with an early show featuring The Bad Plus performing Ornette Coleman's Science Fiction and a late show with Glasser. Not part of CMJ.

Open Mike Eagle, HEEMS, Princess Nokia, Louis Logic, Malportado Kids, Yung Gutted, Chris Gethard, Greer Barnes, The Lucas Brothers @ Palisades
Between Open Mike Eagle, HEEMS and Princess Nokia, there's no lack of good indie rap on this bill, and comedian Chris Gethard is great at warming up the crowd at a show too.

Fort Lean, Seoul, The Great Void, Rioux, TOMBOY, Doprah, YAWN, Zula @ Lot 45
This is the Out in the Streets Festival's CMJ show which was originally supposed to be at Radio Bushwick. It's a solid lineup, with Montreal's lush synthpop practitioners SEOUL one of the highlights.

Moses Sumney, Adult Jazz, J Fernandez, George Maple @ Rough Trade
One-man/loop-pedal maestro Moses Sumney headlines this show that also features hyped UK band Adult Jass.

HSY, Vulture Shit, Mexican Slang, The Beverleys, Weaves, Muuy Biien @ Shea Stadium
Toronto label Buzz Records throws their showcase at Shea tonight with a number of their quality bands including sludge punks HSY, psych rockers Mexican Slang, garage punks The Beverleys and indie rockers Weaves.

PC Worship, Future Punx, Eaters, Beth Israel, B-Boys @ Silent Barn
Dull Tools, the label Parquet Courts' Andrew Savage and Future Punx's Chris Pickering, is throwing this party tonight with most of their excellent roster, including two of our 10 NYC Bands to See at CMJ, plus synth duo Eaters, Austin postpunks Beth Israel and B Boys. Maybe some surprises too. This will be a fun show.

Self Defense Family, Walter Schreifels & the Dead Heavens, Deep Pockets @ The Acheron (BV co-presents)
This is Iron Pier's showcase which BrooklynVegan is proudly co-presenting. Headlining is the smart, experimental post-hardcore band Self Defense Family, and there's direct support from post-hardcore legend Walter Schreifels (Quicksand, Gorilla Biscuits, etc) and his new band the Dead Heavens. Quality locals Deep Pockets open.

Christian Finnegan, Seth Herzog, Damien Lemon, Dan Soder, Michelle Wolf, The Amigos Band @ Bell House
This is a benefit for the continued -- and much needed -- relief aid to folks ravaged by Hurricane Sandy. It's a great comedy lineup with a few surprise guests promised as well.

Xylouris & White, Invisible Familiars, 75 Dollar Bill, Tall Tales and the Silver Lining @ Union Pool
Tonight's headliners are 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.

Gerard Way @ Webster Hall
The former My Chemical Romance frontman ditches the gothed-out stadium pop punk of his former band on his debut solo album, Hesitant Alien, which instead pulls heavily from '90s Britpop. Whether or not you were an MCR fan, it's worth checking out. This is his second of two NYC shows, and it's an official CMJ show.

Lloyd Cole @ City Winery
Having made swoony, literate guitar pop with The Commotions in the '80s and solo since the '90s, Lloyd Cole remains a suave talent whose banter entertains as well.

Buster Poindexter @ Cafe Carlyle
For something completely different (and not part of CMJ), David Johansen puts back on the tux and Buster Poindexter persona for a night of cabaret.

Little Kids Rock Benefit Honoring Joan Jett @ Hammerstein Ballroom
The annual Little Kids Rock benefit gala (which Brian Wilson played last year) tonight honors Joan Jett. Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong will present Joan with the award and Alice Cooper, Tommy James, Darlene Love, Jake Clemons, Glen Hansard, Brody Dalle and Jesse Malin will all be on hand to perform Joan's songs as a tribute to her.

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

For laughs, check out the NYC Comedy calendar too.

Thurston Moore w/ Sonic Youth in 2011 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
SY

Because of CMJ, we're doing 'What's Going On' slightly different this week. Each day there's a handful of day shows which are listed first, followed by the night shows. With so many events happening each day, we've limited this to our top picks, but there's a list of other good ones below the fold. And for even more of tonight's shows, you can browse our full NYC show calendar.

DAY SHOWS

Peter Matthew Bauer, Bo Ningen, Happyness, Money, Spires, Slothrust, Strange Names @ Baby's All Right
The good folks at Tell All Your Friends PR are putting on this day party featuring former Walkmen bassist Peter Matthew Bauer, plus Japanese prog metalists Bo Ningen, UK indie rock trio Happyness and more. A varied and very solid day party option.

CYMBALS, Curtin, J Fernandez,September Girls, Casual Sex, Boyd Shropshire, Flowers, Beach Day @ Cake Shop
Cake Shop is always a safe CMJ bet and today's free day party was booked by the venue itself, featuring a bunch of acts from across the pond, including English bands CYMBALSand Flowers, Ireland's September Girls and Scottish band Casual Sex. Plus: Kurt Vile cohort Boyd Shropshire, LA's J Fernandez and Florida pop band Beach Day.

NIGHT SHOWS

Secret Chiefs 3 @ Le Poisson Rouge
Mr. Bungle member Trey Spruance leads the instrumental experimental rock collective Secret Chiefs 3, whose tour hits NYC for its first of two shows here this week (during but not part of CMJ).

The Mystery Lights, Calvin Love, Homeshake, Honey/Free, OJ Pimpson @ Baby's All Right
This is a free late night show from the folks at M for Montreal featuring a mix of Canadian (Calvin Love, Homeshake, OJ Pimpson) and U.S. acts. Starts at midnight and if you make it to the end (on this the first night of CMJ) we salute you.

DIIV, Splashh, PAWS, Nuns, Beach Day @ Brooklyn Night Bazaar
DIIV are busy finishing up their new album but will play this show at North Brooklyn's one-stop shop for locally-made gifts, mini-golf, micro-brews. tasty food and live music. The other bands on the bill -- including UK indie rockers PAWS and Splash -- are good too. While most shows at BKNB are free, this one is $20, or you can get in with your CMJ badge.

Wreckless Eric, Scott & Charlene's Wedding @ Death By Audio
Punk/new wave vet Wreckless Eric is maybe best known for his 1977 hit "Whole Wide World," but he's more than that and continues to be very active. Tonight's an intimate show at the soon-closing Death by Audio and with quality support. FYI: Eric's on at 9 PM and Scott & Charlene's Wedding at 10 PM.

Tom Vek, Olga Bell @ Mercury Lounge
Tom Vek's style -- jittery, syncopated, danceable postpunk -- is as distinctive as his voice, and he hasn't futzed with it too much over his 10-year career. Having released his third album, Luck, earlier this year he's over for a few US shows this week.

Alkaline Trio, Jenny Owen Youngs @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Grim but melodic punks Alkaline Trio have eight records ranging from pretty good to pretty great, and they'll be playing two in full at each night of this 4-night run at MHOW (it won't be announced which albums are which night). This is night 1, though all four shows fall during CMJ, they're not part of the fest.

Roomrunner, Celestial Shore, Heliotropes, Washer @ Palisades
Baltimore grunge lovers Roomrunner have a new EP called Separate out this week just in time for CMJ. This is one of a couple shows they've got scheduled, and the whole lineup is solid.

John Nolan, '68, Chris Farren, Xerxes, The Felix Culpa, Aviator, Rescuer, In Between, Foreign Tongues, Maps for Travelers @ Paper Box (FREE No Sleep showcase, BV co-presents)
The trusty No Sleep Records is throwing its showcase which is FREE (no badges required) which starts early at 6 PM and goes til after midnight. There's a ton of cool stuff, including a solo set from Taking Back Sunday's John Nolan, a few killer post-hardcore bands (Xerxes, Aviator, Rescuer, Maps For Travelers), the reunited Felix Culpa, the punky Run Forever and more. BrooklynVegan proudly co-presents this one.

Honey Wild, Fractures, Little May, Monica Heldal, Happyness, Son Little, Elle King, Horse Thief @ Rockwood Music Hall
WFUV and Communion Records helped put this show together, featuring Oklahoma's anthemic Horse Thief (shades of Fleet Foxes), the US live debut from Australia's Little May, and the throwback indie rock sounds of Happyness.

The Crookes, Money, Spring King, Longfellow @ Rough Trade
Clothing brand Ben Sherman is presenting this show so it may be no surprise all the bands are from the UK. We're especially looking forward to Spring King whose anthemic swagger falls somewhere between Wavves and Palma Violets. Also: this show is free.

The Thurston Moore Band, PCPC (mems Parquet Courts + PC Worship) @ Saint Vitus
Thurston Moore's new band includes his former Sonic Youth bandmate Steve Shelley, My Bloody Valentine bassist Deb Googe, and guitarist James Sedwards, and unlike Thurston's last acoustic-y album, this band's more similar to what Thurston was writing in latter-day Sonic Youth. Their tourmates, PCPC, are the result of Parquet Courts and PC Worship members coming together for a collaborative project, so that should be interesting as well. This non-CMJ show is their first of two sold-out NYC shows, the next one being Rough Trade on Sunday.

Ex-Breathers, Glish, Vetter Kids, The Hawks of Holy Rosary @ Shea Stadium
This is the Texas Is Funny showcase with a good lineup of that label's bands all around, most notably Florida hardcore rippers Ex-Breathers.

Dream Police, Natural Velvet, Psychic Blood, Survival @ Silent Barn
Most interestingly, this is one of a few CMJ shows for Dream Police, the other project of The Men's Mark Perro and Nick Chiericozzi, who make more avant-garde and effect-laden music than The Men's recent output. Psychic Blood are good too.

The Horrors, Moon Duo (members of Wooden Shjips) @ Stage 48
Psych out tonight with British post-punks The Horrors and the groovy drone of Moon Duo. For those who like to show-hop at CMJ, Stage 48 is out of the way, but it's The Horrors' only East Coast show this tour.

Inter Arma, King Parrot, So Hideous, Lazer/Wulf, The Moon Tooth @ The Acheron
This is the Metal Injection/MetalSucks showcase and it's headlined by the awesome psychedelic metallers Inter Arma who just put out a one-song 40-minute EP. Locals So Hideous are well-matched and the proggy Lazer/Wulf are cool too.

Weyes Blood, Guy Blakeslee, Heat, The #1s, J Fernandez, Lydia Ainsworth @ Union Pool
Tonight, Union Pool hosts the YVYNYL CMJ showcase which has a great and diverse lineup. There's powerhouse vocalist Weyes Blood, The Entrance Band's Guy Blakeslee, Montreal's fuzzed-out Heat, Ireland's power pop/garage rockers The #1s, the guitar pop of J Fernandez, and the new age-y Lydia Ainsworth.

James @ Webster Hall
Long-running Manchester band James formed in 1982 and were originally signed to Factory Records (home of Joy Division, New Order, Happy Mondays). They were championed early by The Smiths but seemed saddled with underground success until "Sit Down" and then "Laid" which took the band into international stardom in the early '90s. The band have remained active since, and released La Petite Mort, their 13th album, earlier this year which finds them in much the same big anthemic, danceable style they've always worked in.

The Allman Brothers Band @ Beacon Theatre
The current lineup of The Allman Brothers Band has had a very long and impressive run, but sadly the band has chosen to retire at the end of this month. They'll go out with a bang though, with six shows in eight nights at the Beacon, this being the first.

The Kills, Alec Soth, Joe Purdy, Billy Bragg @ Terminal 5
Though The Kills' intimate CMJ show at Bowery Ballroom on Thursday is probably the place to be if you're a Kills fan, you can catch them playing a "short set" at this one, which is The Open Road Aperture Foundation Benefit Party, a tribute to photographer/filmmaker Robert Frank.

PINS, September Girls, Mannequin Pussy, Vasudeva, Amanda X @ Cameo Gallery
Oh My Rockness curated this night of four excellent female-fronted bands -- including Manchester UK's PINS, Philadelphia's Amanda X -- plus the dudes that are Jersey's Vasudeva.

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

For laughs, check out the NYC Comedy calendar too.

As mentioned, BrooklynVegan is returning to Baby's All Right for our free day parties during CMJ on Friday (10/24) and Saturday (10/25).... like 4 days from right now. We already told you the Friday (10/24) party would have Protomartyr, and King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard, and now we're thrilled to announce the full lineup:

FRIDAY, Oct 24 @ NOON @ Baby's --- FREE (RSVP)!

12:45 The Wytches
1:30 Tweens

3:15 Protomartyr

SAilor JerrySAilor Jerry

Noon is also when Matt Marcus of Three Kings Tattoo will start giving out free tattoos courtesy of Sailor Jerry Sign up at his table for the chance to win one and get inked right inside the front room of Baby's for free. (this year tattoo recipients will be picked by raffle instead of first come, first served like last year).

Then it's the UK's The Wytches who recently released their debut LP on Partisan which is a little psych and a little garage.

By the time the Wytches get off stage, we'll start handing out complimentary Sailor Jerry rum beverages while supplies last.

The always-fun Tweens, who were great at our SXSW party earlier this year, follow, and then it's the Australian psych maniacs King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard who always bring the party.

Complimentary Sailor Jerry will still be flowing and we'll have multiple varieties of Bell's on tap for you to try out.

Bells

Then it's the sarcastic and smart post-punks Protomartyr, followed by lushly arranged emo band The World is a Beautiful Place & I am No Longer Afraid to Die.

Then the volume gets turned up for Canadian punks Single Mothers, who finally put out their debut LP after some delay this year, and Chicago's raucous Twin Peaks will wrap up the day on an equally loud note. Hopefully nobody rips down the ceiling this time!

Again, the show is totally free (no badge required). RSVP here. 21+ to enter.

Australia's King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard have a new album on the way, I'm in Your Mind Fuzz, next month via Castle Face and the band recently shared another song off the album.

Cibo Matto @ Summerstage in July (more by Adele Loconte)
Cibo Matto

John Zorn, Marc Ribot, Wesley Stace, Cibo Matto, Satomi of Deerhoof and more will be participating in concerts happening in NYC this weekend to benefit and raise awareness for artists rights organization Content Creators Coalition. Specifically, here's what they are standing up for:

Ad-based piracy is a direct attack on the livelihoods and art forms of today's content creators. And the major tech players who sell ads to these websites make large-scale piracy possible. Artists have always been the ultimate free speech activists. That's why we're asking Google and other large tech corporations to stand with us and stop brokering ads to piracy sites. It's not about censorship. It's about making sure current and future generations of artists can continue to create.
The first benefit happens on Saturday (10/18) at Roulette in Brooklyn and features John Zorn, Eric Slick (Dr Dog), Steve Coleman, Marc Ribot, Matana Roberts, Henry Grimes, Marina Rosenfeld, Brandon Seabrook, Satomi of Deerhoof, and more. Tickets are on sale.

Then on Sunday afternoon (10/19) at Le Poisson Rouge there's a rally featuring Rosanne Cash, Yuka Honda and Miho Hatori of Cibo Matto, Wesley Stace, Marc Ribot, Marcus Rojas' Brass ensemble, Ava Mendoza and more TBA. That starts at 2 PM and is free.

Ben Watt at Joe's Pub in June (more by Greg Cristman)
Ben Watt

Everything But the Girl guitarist Ben Watt released his second solo album (first in 30 years) this year and played shows in NYC and LA to promote it.

Estrogen Highs

New Haven, CT band Estrogen Highs are back with a new album, Hear Me at the Number Station, which just came out via Trouble in Mind. The band are in the proud post-VU noisepop tradition as The Moles, The Pastels, GBV, and Pavement. (Etc, etc.) The new record is 18 songs in 34 minutes, with plenty of hooks and and an appealingly shambolic sound that seems on the edge of falling apart but never does. You can stream the whole album (via Noisey) below.

Estrogen Highs will be in NYC for CMJ, playing both Trouble in Mind shows: an evening show at Cake Shop on October 23 and a free day party at Rough Trade on October 25 .

Beach Fossils @ Baby's All Right 9/26/2014 (photo by @the_hideous)

EMILY MCDERMOTT: So what are you working on at the moment?

DUSTIN PAYSEUR: I've been writing a new Beach Fossils album with the whole band, which is the first time we've all written together. A lot of the time we're not actually writing--we're just making horrible nu-metal jams--but we've also made a lot of progress. I get really bad writer's block when I'm stuck in my own head for too long, so working with everybody has been nice. I also have a project called Glass Bricks with my friend Rene, and it's inspired by industrial music, but more future-based instead of throwback. Then there's this sludgy noise band, Divorce Money, and another band, Laced, that's like punk music, but more slowed down and melodic. And I'm starting a record label with my wife! There's been a lot of shit going on, [but] working on everything helps me focus. If I only have one thing, it drives me completely insane. - [Interview]

Beach Fossils just wrapped up their tour with Heavenly Beat and Axxa/Abraxas, which kicked off with two sold-out nights at Baby's All Right. The band will play NYC again during CMJ at Brooklyn Bowl on Thursday, October 23 with Small Black, as well as Wardell and Fiance. The show, which is also the launch party for FLOOD magazine, is free if you RSVP now. At the door, tickets will be $12. CMJ badges will be accepted too.

The only other upcoming show on Beach Fossils' schedule is Washington, DC's Rock N Roll Hotel on November 7.

Dune Rats

There have been a lot of Australian acts on tour in North America lately and if you wished there were more -- like, a whole lot more -- and you'll be in NYC during CMJ, you're in luck, with over 30 bands and artists from Down Under playing the fest. Most of them you can see all in one place on one day at the annual Aussie BBQ which happens this year at The Delancey on October 25. It's a free show and bands include Luluc, Dune Rats, Bad//Dreems and about 27 other acts. You can check out a sampler featuring a song from each artist playing the Aussie BBQ, and well as the full schedule, below.

Brisbane's Dune Rats, who have gone from a duo to a trio in the last year, released their debut album over the summer. It's punky, party-friendly pop and you can stream it in full below. They've got a total of five CMJ shows, as of this post, while here:

Oct 21 @ Glasslands (NIGHT)
Oct 24 @ Pianos (5:30 PM) | Planetary Party FREE

Melbourne/Brooklyn duo Luluc put out Passerby over the summer on Sub Pop and you can stream that in full via Rdio. And if you like their album, there are a lot of bands playing the Aussie BBQ who fit in a similar indie-folkpop style. In addition to the BBQ, Luluc are playing the Sub Pop CMJ showcase at Knitting Factory on October 23 (tickets) and before that will open for J Mascis at Bowery Ballroom on October 17 (sold out). All Luluc dates are listed below.

Adelaide's Bad//Dreems make guitar pop that skews a little more towards Aussie rock legends Hoodoo Gurus, with big choruses and and ringing guitars. The band have released a string of singles and EPs (no album yet) and you can stream some of those below. Bad//Dreems play four CMJ shows:

Oct 23 @ Drom (early evening, FREE)

The Menzingers in Chicago in June (more by Jeff Ryan)
Menzingers

The Menzingers already had two NYC-area dates on their tour schedule -- Long Island's Revolution Bar on 10/24 with Iron Chic, Spraynard, Casavettes and Lee Corey Oswald, and Taking Back Sunday's holiday show on 12/27 in NJ -- but nothing in NYC proper. That's now changed, as they've added a free show happening on November 7 at Brooklyn Night Bazaar with more TBA. Updated list of their dates, below.

That show's part of an all-punk weekend at BKNB, with their Revolution billmates Iron Chic headlining the venue the next night (11/8) with Beach Slang, Blessed State and Collect Yourself (also free).

Beach Slang also play Saint Vitus on October 14 with Cheap Girls, Lee Corey Oswald, Signals Midwest and Chumped (buy tickets or win some), and they play the official 2014 BrooklynVegan CMJ showcase happening October 25 at Baby's All Right with The Jazz June, Pity Sex, Cayetana and Sport (tickets).

Other upcoming punk shows at the Night Bazaar include the Lemuria show that we mentioned earlier today and one this Friday (10/10) with Crime In Stereo, Sorority Noise, Mannequin Pussy, Nine of Swords and Push Ups.

List of Menzingers dates below...

Monomyth

Halifax, NS quartet Monomyth releaed their debut album, Saturnalia Regalia!, over the summer via Canadian label, Mint. I caught them while at Pop Montreal a couple weeks ago and was impressed:

Hailing from Halifax, NS and having all four members write and sing, I couldn't help but compare them a bit to Sloan. But Monomyth sound nothing like them though. Like Sloan, the styles of the songs vary wildly depending on who's singing (one of them clearly went through a jam band phase). But the songs are uniformly terrific, ranging from powerpop to warbly indiepop.
You can stream the album in full below. Monomyth will be heading to NYC for CMJ and as of this post have three shows on their schedule, all of which are free:
October 21 @ Pete's Candy Store (7:50 PM) | Riot Act Happy Hour Party

October 24 @ Cake Shop (1 PM) | Break Thru Radio Party

October 24 @ Pianos (4:50 PM) | Planetary Party

Those are Monomyth's only dates upcoming at the moment. Full line-ups and flyers for those parties are below. Also worth checking out Monomyth's video for LP track "Patsy" which, directed by Seth Smith, depicts a very weird wedding. It's creepy and funny and be sure to watch till the end (twist!). Note: the guy playing the father is Halifax scene legend Matthew Grimson. Watch it below.

Former REM frontman Michael Stipe dropped out of the University of Georgia (he was an art major) when R.E.M. took off, but has been focusing once again on art since the band split in 2011. He's back at a different college, NYU, where he's an artist and teacher in residence, and is behind a new exhibition titled NEW SIGHTS, NEW NOISE which is running at 80 WSE Gallery (80 Washington Sq. East @ W4) now through November 8, 2014. Stipe has repurposed the space as a studio, classroom, and laboratory "that will exist in a constant state of flux for the duration of the exhibition." More on those three components:

Stipe will establish a fully functioning studio in 80WSE's front gallery, where he will work for the duration of the exhibition on a series of new projects, across a wide range of media, during the hours that the gallery is closed to the public. While the gallery is open, visitors will be able to see the state in which the studio has been left after each of Stipe's work sessions, making processes that are normally private public and offering a window into his remarkably prolific, varied, and non-hierarchical way of seeing, thinking and making.

In addition, the project will expand Stipe's perspective and approach into the format of an undergraduate studio art course, which he will teach in NYU's Department of Art and Art Professions. For each of the six weeks of the exhibition Stipe, collaboratively with a guest artist or cultural figure that he has invited, will pose a question or prompt to the class. In response, each student along with Stipe and the guest will generate 100 images and gifs, both found and made, all of which will be uploaded to a private class website.

Finally, the remaining four connected gallery spaces, which constitute 80WSE, will consist of 15 independent projections, in various configurations, the content of which will be sourced from the class's website. The selection of images and gifs - their composition and layout - as well as the way they are situated via the projectors in the exhibition, will be changed throughout each day by a rotating pre-scheduled series of curators, including Stipe, each of the special guests, and the 18 students in the class.

Guest curators include Douglas Coupland, Peaches, Jefferson Hack, Dean Sameshima, Jerry Seguin, and Taryn Simon. Read more about it at REM HQ. The 80 WSE Gallery hours are Tuesday-Saturday, 10:30AM-6PM.

Lydia Ainsworth

Lydia Ainsworth is based in Toronto these days but has spent time in both Montreal and New York City as a music student. It was while at NYU that she began delving into pop music. She spent two years working on her debut album, Right from Real, which was just released on Arbutus, home of Grimes. Being on the same label and also making electronic-y music, Ainsworth has gotten compared to Claire Boucher, but beyond superficial similarities, their music is pretty different. (Purity Ring is closer, as is, at times, Enya.) Right to Real shows off her composer / arranger skills (it's cinematic stuff), as well as her versatile voice. But you wouldn't put it on at a club -- though a couple songs are ripe for remixing. You can stream some of it below.

Ainsworth will be here for CMJ and she's currently got six shows lined up:

Thursday October 23rd @ Baby's All Right | Gorilla Vs. Bear showcase

Friday October 24th @ Pianos | Planetary Radio day party FREE

Friday October 24th @ Arlene's Grocery | M For Montreal showcase

Friday October 24th @ Glasslands | Popgun showcase

Saturday October 25th @ Death by Audio | Arbutus Records showcase

Sunday October 26th @ Babycastles | Cardinal PR day show

Lineups for the shows are listed below.

The M for Montreal show, their annual CMJ poutine party, also features Homeshake, The Posterz, Solids, Heat, Lisa Leblac, Vesuvio Solo, The Muscadettes and a l l i e. That's not the only show the M folks are doing this year. On Tuesday, October 21 at Baby's All Right at midnight (so technically 10/22 morning) M4M will throw a late-night party with Honey, Homeshake, Calvin Love, The Mystery Lights, and OJ Pimpson. It goes till the wee hours and is FREE.

Speaking of Arbutus, the Montreal label is also throwing a free day party with Cascine Records on October 25 at Wythe Hotel's rooftop Ides bar with DJ sets from TOPS, Blue Hawaii, Erika Spring, No Excuses, and Wildarms. Cascine and Arbutus will also have a special show on Newtown Radio on October 20 from 9 - 11 PM.

CMJ lineups for shows mentioned above, as well as flyers and Lydia Ainsworth's partial album stream, below.

Protomartyr @ West Fest 2014 (more by James Richards IV)
Protomartyr

Unless something truly amazing comes along this year in the next three months, Protomartyr's Under Color of Official Right seems like a likely contender for my favorite album of 2014. (It is certainly the most quotable.) The band have been through town a few times already this year and will be back in NYC later this month for CMJ, including the free BrooklynVegan day party at Baby's All Right on Friday, October 24. Rest of the lineup and more details about the rest of what we've got planned for CMJ still to come.

Protomartyr will also play that night at Death by Audio for the Inland Empire showcase with Eaters and more TBA. They're also playing free early evening show at Cake Shop on Saturday (10/25, 6:15 PM). And before all those Protomartyr play the Sub Pop / Hardly Art showcase at Knitting Factory on 10/23 with Obits, Lee Bains III & The Glory Fires, Luluc, Gem Club and S (tickets).

The band's only other non-CMJ at the moment is one in their hometown of Detroit on 10/14 with Lace Curtains and Eaters. All dates are listed below.

Protomartyr recently recorded a La Blogothèque take-away session, performing stripped down versions of "What the Walls Said" and "Scum, Rise!" at France's Route du Rock fest. Watch that, and stream Under Color of Official Right, below...

Spring King

Manchester band Spring King make spunky, punky pop with an anthemic swagger. (Think somewhere between Wavves and Palma Violets.) This year saw their first two releases -- the very very catchy "Mumma" single at the start of the year and the Demons EP which came out last month. A few streams from those are below.

Spring King will be making their U.S. live debut here in NYC during CMJ and so far there are three chances to see them, all of which are free: an all-UK night show at Rough Trade on October 21 presented by Ben Sherman with The Crookes, fellow Mancunians MONEY, and Longfellow. Then they play the Kanine day party on October 22 at Pianos with PAWS, Girlpool, LIterature, Ultimate Painting, SEOUL, and lots more. Then they play Rough Trade's day party on October 23 with Twin Peaks, Happyness, The Wytches and Nai Harvest.

More CMJ shows may be added as we get closer to the fest. Stay tuned. Song streams below...
