Landlady's Adam Schatz @ DbA's final week (more by Amanda Hatfield)

Landlady are throwing a "Holiday Spectacular" tonight (12/8) at Mercury Lounge which features performances from Celestial Shore, Xenia Rubinos, Luke Temple, Invisible Familiars, Zongo Junction, Cantina, Star Rover, Relatives, Sam Cohen, Zula, not to mention Rubblebucket's horn section, Cassandra Jenkins, The Westerlies and Isaac Gillespie. Tickets are on sale and proceeds go to Bushwick School of Music, a non-profit music education program run by Greg Albert (Celestial Shore), Carlos Hernandez (Ava Luna) and Lydia Velichkovski and that "provides music lessons and ensembles to kids who cannot afford extracurricular music lessons." Landylady main man Adam Schatz says this about the festive evening:

I believe the true greatness of the holiday season is that, amongst the madness of commercial oppression and Mariah Carey, we are forced to consider and value those we call family. This show is about those considerations and values. The Landlady Holiday Spectacular is about coming together and being an extraordinary sum of our own parts, because it is surely worth doing that at least once a year.
In addition to tonight's show, Landlady have released a holiday song, "Please Come Home For Christmas," which features vocals from Sylvan Esso's Amelia Meath. It's part of their label Hometapes' annual holiday mixtape which also features Ivan Howard (The Rosebuds, GAYNGS), Made of Oak (Nick Sanborn of Sylvan Esso), Invisible Familiars, Star Rover, Josh Millrod and more. You can stream that below and download purchases also go toward the Bushwick School of Music.

Speaking of Celestial Shore, they headline Brooklyn Night Bazaar Saturday (12/13) with on Grooms, The Teen Age, and The Glazzies. That show is free and you can skip the line by RSVPing.

Interpol @ Bowery Ballroom, 9/4/2014
Interpol

Interpol are in the midst of a hometown promotional onlslaught for their new album El Pintor, which is out next week (9/9). After playing the chi chi Temple of Dendur at The Met on Tuesday (9/2), the band returned to more familiar Lower East Side territory for a show at Bowery Ballroom to a feverish crowd. Song selection varied from The Met show as you can see in the setlist below. The Bowery show had a Temple too, in this case opener Luke Temple of Here We Go Magic who performed solo. Pics from Bowery Ballroom are in this post.

The band wrap up their week of release shows in just a bit with a show at the I Heart Radio Theatre. It's a private show but is being streamed live at I Heart Radio's website, starting at 7 PM EST tonight (9/5).

Interpol will be back in NYC in November when their fall tour hits T5 for two sold-out shows. More pics and the setlist from Thursday's Bowery Ballroom show, plus an El Pintor making-of documentary, below...

Subhumans at Punk Rock Bowling 2013 (more by Keith Marlowe)
Subhumans

Lauryn Hill at FPSF 2014 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Lauryn Hill

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

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Nicole Atkins @ Hammerstein Ballroom
What can you say about Nick Cave? He's a living legend and remains an absolutely magnetic live performer. It will probably be raining outside tonight, but Nick will bring the thunder indoors. Tickets are still available.

Subhumans, Sheer Terror, White Collar Crime, Mischief Brew @ le Poisson Rouge
Two veteran punk bands team up for this show at LPR tonight, the UK's legendary Subhumans and hometown NYHC heroes Sheer Terror.

Lauryn Hill @ Brooklyn Bowl
Though Lauryn Hill sometimes has to postpone her shows, she's still been pretty active lately, and tonight she kicks off a 2-night stand at Brooklyn Bowl which should be packed with favorites from her classic album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill and her time in The Fugees too.

Luke Temple, Buffalo Stance, Laser Background, Killer Bob @ Baby's All Right
Here We Go Magic frontman Luke Temple released Good Mood Fool last year, where he bathed in warm funk and gentle reggae, giving things an enjoyably mellow vibe.

Body Language, Not Blood, Paint, Psychic Twin, Starlight Girls, Neighbors, Weyes Blood @ Onderdonk House
This is the first day of the 2014 Out in the Streets which is happening at the historic Van Onderdonk House in Ridgewood Queens. The bucolic setting should make for a nice change of pace from the DIY venues many of these bands are more prone to play.

NY Deathfest ft Defeated Sanity, Gruesome Stuff Relish, Internal Bleeding, Embalmer, Dehumanized, Amputated Genitals, Parasitic Extirpation, Coffin Dust, Abacinate, Cognitive, Backyotomy @ Saint Vitus
Maryland doesn't get all the fun. NY has a Deathfest now too (no affiliation), though it's a smaller one but does include some great names in metal. This is day 2 of 2.

Brooks Wheelan @ Union Hall
Go console Wheelan on being fired from Saturday Night Live at his standup night tonight. Maybe remind him that Robert Downey Jr. was fired after one season too and he turned out ok. Eventually.

Comedy Night @ Knitting Factory
Big league comedy talent (Chris Rock, Louis CK, etc) show up regularly (and unannounced) for Hannibal's very popular free comedy show at Knitting Factory's front bar. Having had his own Comedy Central special and a featured performer on Broad City, Hannibal himself is getting pretty big league. Get there early.

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

Storm King Art Center in 2012 (more by Jessica Amaya)
Storm King

We already mentioned that one of The Baseball Project's shows (mems R.E.M., Dream Syndicate) this year is at the Storm King Art Center in New Windsor, NY which isn't too far from NYC. That show is actually part of Storm King's 2014 Outdoor Music Series, which includes two other concerts.

On June 8 it's Katie Crutchfield's confessional indie rock/folk project Waxahatchee and Here We Go Magic singer Luke Temple, followed by The Baseball Project with Happiness on July 20, and finally it's NY folk rockers The Felice Brothers and guitar experimenter Steve Gunn on September 21.

All shows start at 2 PM and are free with Storm King admission ($15 adults, $12 seniors, $8 children ages 5-18, free for children 4 and under).

The Felice Brothers' tour also hits NYC in July at Webster Hall.

Against Me! in Chicago in April (more by Jeff Ryan)
AM!

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

Against Me!, Tony Molina, Big Eyes @ Webster Hall
Against Me! are back this year with a new album, a new lineup, and a reinvigorated sound that's only better live than it is on the solid Transgender Dysphoria Blues. They played MHOW earlier this year and tonight they return to NYC for a show at the larger Webster Hall. Support is great too, coming from the indie pop punks Big Eyes and Weezer/Teenage Fanclub/Thin Lizzy worshipper Tony Molina.

Pictureplane, LODRO, Ought, Truthers, Bodyparts @ Brooklyn Night Bazaar
rooklyn Night Bazaar offers weekends of local artisan shopping, gourmet eats, beer and wine, ping pong, black light minigolf and music all under one Greenpoint roof. This is a super-solid bill, with the big curiosity draw being Ought, who just got "Best New Music" in Pitchfork.

Atomic Bomb! The Music of William Onyeabor @ BAM
David Byrne, Hot Chip's Alexis Taylor, Dev of Blood Orange, Money Mark, Sinkane, Pat Mahoney (LCD Soundsystem) and more pay tribute to Nigerian synth-funk great William Onyeabor over two nights, this being the second. Part of the Red Bull Music Academy, this has potential to be very, very cool.

MONDO! @ Cameo Gallery
New York City's longest-running indie pop party, MONDO turns 10 years old tonight. It remains your best place to dance to twee, '80s classics, Northern Soul, post-punk, cardigan pop, etc. Things are likely to be especially festive tonight. Fun starts at midnight.

Herzog, Shale Satan @ Cobra Club
Cleveland indie rockers Herzog are back with a genuinely terrific new album, Boys, that recalls the heyday of '90s college radio. This is good stuff.

Greg Proops @ The Bell House
This is a live taping of the comedian's Greg Proops is the Smartest Man in the World podcast. Expect arched eyebrows and much laughter.

The Juan Maclean (DJ), Nancy Whang @ Brooklyn Bowl
Juan and frequent collaborator Nancy Whang will spin house, disco and whatever else suits there fancy. They've got pretty good taste.

Sonic Avenues, Steve Adamyk Band, Something Fierce, Legendary Wings @ Cake Shop
Indie label Dirtnap Records is a general trademark of quality when it comes to things garage/punk/powerpop and tonight they're showcasing a bunch of their bands, including Canadians Sonic Avenues, and the Steve Adamyk Band.

LiveFastDie, Pampers, Foster Care, Citizen Blast Kane @ Union Pool
New Hampshire's LiveFastDie are named after a GG Allin tattoo and play a similar style of punk -- albeit tighter and with less feces. They headline what is a great night, with excellent locals Foster Care and Pampers on the bill as well.

Deerhoof, Tomaga, Awkwafina @ Le Poisson Rouge
Deerhoof's experimental noise pop always makes for a good show, and tonight they'll grace us with another one at Le Poisson Rouge.

Rodrigo y Gabriela, Zach Heckendorf @ Beacon Theatre
Mexican acoustic guitar duo Rodrigo y Gabriela have a new album, 9 Dead Alive, and are currently on tour in support of it. Tonight's the last of three nights at Beacon Theatre.

Margot & The Nuclear So & So's, Empires, Kate Myers @ Bowery Ballroom
Margot & The Nuclear So & So's are back with a new album, Sling Shot to Heaven, this year which has their folky indie pop intact as ever.

CHVRCHES, The Range @ Terminal 5
Who'd have thought a year ago that Scottish synthpop band CHVRCHES would get so big? Tonight's their second of three sold-out shows at Terminal 5.

Mighty Mouse, Lane 8, Alex English DJ set @ Slake
London's Mighty Mouse recently made his debut as 1/2 of Du Tonc with Van She's Matt Van Schie, but he's also a solo artist and plays on his own in NYC tonight.

Luke Temple, She Keeps Bees, Friend Roulette, Stranger Cat, DM Stith, Teletextile, Edan @ Baby's All Right
It's a very varied and interesting bill at Baby's tonight with Here We Go Magic singer Luke Temple, some Sharon Van Etten pals like She Keeps Bees and Cat Martino's electronic-tinged Stranger Cat project, DM Stith who (like Cat Martino) has played in Sufjan's band, Friend Roulette who have probably listened to a lot of Sufjan Stevens, psychedelic rapper Edan, and the avant-pop of Teletextile.

Jean Grae, JD Samson, Magnetic North & Taiyo Na @ Brooklyn Museum
It's another installment of Brooklyn Museum's Target First Saturdays which provide "engaging and eclectic free art and entertainment programs every month, from 5 to 11 p.m." Today's includes Le Tigre/MEN member JD Samson at 7 PM and Talib Kweli collaborator Jean Grae at 8:45.

Hysterics, Ajax, God Mode, Pagan Piss, Sorrows @ Death by Audio
Olympia punks Hysterics are in town for their second of two NYC shows this weekend at DbA tonight. Their sound recalls classic hardcore (think early Black Flag) but sounds totally in the now.

Skull Defekts, PC Worship, Ornament, Zomes (DJs) @ Trans-Pecos
Though Swedish experimental rockers The Skull Defekts often count Lungish's Dnaiel Higgs as a member, they had been touring without him this time. However, for their NYC shows today and tomorrow, Daniel will be on board, making these extra special. Today's show is outside of Trans Pecos and is also a BBQ.

Giraffage, Branchez, Tanner Caldwell @ Tribeca Grand Studios
Come dance to the R&B-indebted electronic sounds of Giraffage at Tribeca Grand Studios tonight.

The Communion, Lament, Starkweather, Pyrrhon @ The Grand Victory
Get your fix of local-ish metal from Long Island's The Communion, Philly metalcore troupe Starweather, and Brooklyn tech-death weirdos Pyrrhon.

Ghost Of A Saber Tooth Tiger @ Rough Trade NYC
Sean Lennon has made experimental, forward-thinking music in his career, but with GOASTT, he fully indulges in the family business of pop that is, for lack of a better word, Beatlesque. This show is free with purchase of their new album.

Berlin, The Cringe @ The Cutting Room
Beginning their career as kinky synthpop, Berlin morphed into superstars by the time of their megahit "Take My Breath Away." Only singer Teri Nunn remains of the original '80s lineup. Opening are The Cringe, aka "that band Rachel Ray's husband is in."

The Jesse Boykins III show at Irving Plaza tonight has been cancelled. Refunds are available at point of purchase.

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

For laughs, check out the NYC Comedy calendar too.

At BAM, Andersen presents an evening of music and conversation featuring Andrew Bird, one of the most acclaimed and inventive songwriters in indie music, and Jennifer Egan, whose novel A Visit from the Goon Squad won the Pulitzer Prize.

Other highlights include a screening of Talking Heads film Stop Making Sense on June 5 in the BAM Rose Cinemas with a Q&A with director Jonathan Demme and WNYC's Brian Lehrer; NYC/WNYC's Ask Me Another show on June 6 at the BAM Howard Gilman Opera House with They Might Be Giants and house musician Jonathan Coulton; and WNYC"s Soundcheck on June 7 at BAM Harvey Theater with The Walkmen frontman (and now solo artist) Hamilton Leithauser.

Luke Temple

While he's spent the last few years concentrating on Here We Go Magic, Luke Temple recently returned to solo mode with Good Mood Fool which was released a couple weeks ago via Secretly Canadian. On it, he bathes in warm funk and gentle reggae, giving things an enjoyably mellow vibe. You can check out the video for "Florida" and a couple other tracks below, and the whole record can be heard via Spotify.

Temple is currently finishing up a short East Coast tour with his band that includes Eliot Krimsky (Glass Ghost, Here We Go Magic), Mike Johnson (Dirty Projectors) and Brian Betancourt (Hospitality). He'll then head to Europe but on his return he's doing a December residency at Union Pool, playing the first three Tuesdays of the month. He's gathered some pretty impressive talent to open on the nights:

ELLIOT KRIMSKY
MEMS (5) - (Ofir Ganon and Greg Sarnier of Deerhoof)
CHRIS BEAR (of Grizzly Bear)
LUKE TEMPLE

DECEMBER 10 (tickets)

Cat Power / Sky Ferreira at Elliott Smith tribute (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Cat Power
Sky Ferreira

As you may have heard, on the tenth anniversary of Elliott Smith's death (10/21), a tribute show went down at Glasslands in Brooklyn with a number of musicians, including Cat Power, Zachary Cole Smith (DIIV), Sky Ferreira, Yoni Wolf (Why?), The Low Anthem, Luke Temple, Marissa Nadler, Aaron Pfenning, Sadie Dupuis (Speedy Ortiz), and more. We already posted pictures, the setlist, and a fan video from the show, and now there's professional video of the show, courtesy of The Bomber Jacket (one of the show presenters). They're planning on releasing the audio from the show as well ("hopefully by Christmas"), and all proceeds from that release will benefit the Elliott Smith Memorial Fund.

Meanwhile you can watch those videos below...

CocoRosie at Paper Box in May (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Cocorosie

CocoRosie are currently on tour in support of their newest LP, Tales of a Grass Widow. That tour hit NYC for a big show at Webster Hall earlier this month (10/12), but they've since tacked on a much more intimate NYC show to the end of the tour. The quirky songwriters will play Brooklyn Bowl on November 10 with two other quirky songwriters, Xenia Rubinos and Arc Iris (the new ANTI-signed project of ex-Low Anthem member Jocie Adams). It's one of those 'School Night!' shows which means it's totally FREE but you do have to RSVP. Updated CocoRosie dates are listed, along with the show flyer, below.

Meanwhile, there's another 'School Night!' show happening even sooner. As discussed, Tennis are playing this Sunday (11/3) (one of their two upcoming NYC shows), and since we last spoke, it's been announced that Luke Temple (of Here We Go Magic) and Chalk and Numbers are opening. There will also be listening parties for the new Tennis EP, Small Sound, and the new Cut Copy album. RSVP is still open for this free show.

Tennis have also just made their new EP available to stream on Pitchfork.

All CocoRosie dates are listed, along with some videos, below...

Sondre Lerche, Luke Temple @ Bowery Ballroom -- 10/15/2013
Sondre Lerche, Luke Temple @ Bowery Ballroom -- 10/15/2013

Sondre Lerche, who's been somewhat quiet of late, broke the silence for a show at Bowery Ballroom during CMJ, headlining The Talkhouse showcase on October 15 that also featured Luke Temple and others. Where most NYC shows tend to just be Sondre solo, for this one he had a rhythm section in tow -- a nice treat, though he's certainly capable of captivating a crowd all by his lonesome. Pictures from his and Temples' sets are in this post.

While Lerche finishes up his new album, fans can look forward to a new 12" which is one of the many 2013 Record Store Day Black Friday releases. It's the first in a series of releases under the title Public Hi-Fi Sessions where bands record at Jim Eno's studio. This one features Sondre doing "Like Lazenby" and "Screen Door."

And speaking of the Talkhouse, Sondre reviewed the new Prefab Sprout album, Crimson / Red which was the first all-new Prefab Sprout album in 16 years. If you are familiar with Prefab Sprout, the band's influence on Lerche's music is pretty evident, and "I Cannot Let You Go" from his 2009 album Heartbeat Radio is an unabashed PS homage. In his review, he writes:

While I raked autumn leaves in my stepfather's garden, my vanity scanned the record for anything that might remind me of my own music. What I found resembled not so much how I sounded but how I felt. Barely 19 and still living with my mom while chasing my debut album across the world on infinite promotional tours, it was an incredibly confusing and eventful time. And Prefab Sprout turned out to be my absurd and emphatic compass through most of it. Their songs made room for everything I was dealing with: adolescent arrogance, sexual frustrations, conflicted resentment, helpless romanticism, long overdue generational confrontations.
The review is mostly positive and nicely considered, and you can read the whole thing here. And if you haven't heard Crimson / Red yet, Paddy Mcaloon is in fine form -- both vocally and songwriting-ly. If the production is missing some of the granduer of 1990's Jordan the Comeback, the album is a welcome return, and album-opener "The Best Jewel Thief in the World" stands among Mcaloon's finest. You can stream that, and check out more pictures from Sondre Lerche's CMJ set, below...

Elliot Smith Tribute
Elliot Smith Tribute

[Sadie] Dupuis delivered the night's heaviest alt-rock blast, leading a Nirvana-like performance of "Abused" by dialing up the track's soft-loud-soft dynamics. [Marissa] Nadler offered a mesmerizing lullaby with the gentle strums of "Pitseleh." [Yoni] Wolf played three tracks solo on piano, including "Angeles" and "Say Yes," adding his own spin lyrically and musically, something a "chord guy" like Smith would appreciate, Wolf joked.

...

Cat Power soon walked onstage and raised a glass from behind the piano -- "cheers to Elliott," she said. She played a solo version of her own tune, the haunting "Names," from 2003's You Are Free, before her band joined for a jazz/R&B-flecked "Between the Bars," which hit with extra punch due to Marshall's own history of alcohol abuse and mental illness.

She handed out knit caps, like those Smith so often wore (Marshall sported a yellow-gold beanie over her bleached blonde hair all night), and closed with From a Basement on the Hill's "Pretty (Ugly Before)." Ferreira joined Marshall onstage, and the two traded verses and invited the crowd to join -- "Fucking sing it if you know it!" shouted Marshall -- on the repeated outro: "I was so ugly before didn't know what to do." The jam-packed audience inside the DIY venue all sang in hushed tones together, in unison. [Rolling Stone]

On the tenth anniversary of Elliott Smith's death (10/21), a number of musicians gathered at Brooklyn venue Glasslands for a tribute show. The night's cast included Cat Power, Zachary Cole Smith (DIIV), Sky Ferreira, Yoni Wolf (Why?), The Low Anthem, Luke Temple, Marissa Nadler, Aaron Pfenning, Sadie Dupuis (Speedy Ortiz), Adam Schatz, The Perennials and Tereu Tereu. Pictures of the show, a partial setlist, and a video of Sky Ferreira joining Cat Power for "Pretty (Ugly Before)" are in this post.

For Cat Power, this show was ahead of her upcoming solo tour which brings her back to NYC for two shows on November 14 at Brooklyn Masonic Temple (early and late). The early show is sold out but tickets for the late show are still available.

Sadie Dupuis played this just after her band Speedy Ortiz wrapped up a number of CMJ shows, including our Friday party. Speedy Ortiz returns to NYC tonight (10/23) at The Flat for a Mishka show with J Mascis (of Dinosaur Jr). It's an afterparty for the debut of Mishka's new Dinosaur Jr line, which happens at their store (and J will be there doing an in-store signing).

NIN @ Lollapalooza 2013 (more by Dana [distortion] Yavin)
NIN

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

Nine Inch Nails, Godspeed You! Black Emperor @ Barclays Center
Trent Reznor and crew released their first NiN record in five years and their tour with equally intense openers Godspeed are in the NY area for two shows, this being the first.

Luke Temple, Celestial Shore @ Le Poisson Rouge
He was a solo artist before starting Here We Go Magic and Luke Temple has a new solo record, Good Mood Fool, out this week. You can check out the video for the single "Florida" below. Tonight he celebrates at LPR with openers Celestial Shore.

RVIVR, Slice Harvester, Marvin Berry and The New Sound @ Cake Shop
Olympia pop punks RVIVR came to NYC for a show last night at Acheron with Iron Chic and Nude Beach, and tonight they're sticking around to headline their own show at Cake Shop.

Deltron 3000 @ Highline Ballroom
Deltron 3030 are officially back in action, and the great alternative hip hop collective are now touring with backing from orchestra, which should make this different from your average rap show. This is their second show in the area after last week's Brooklyn Bowl show.

Wyatt Cenac's Night Train @ Littlefield
Baron Vaughn, Damien Lemon, Kiran Deol, and Nore Davis are tonight's guests this week at Wyatt Cenac's weekly comedy show.

Those Darlins, Gambles @ Mercury Lounge
Tennessee's Those Darlins started off making '70s Loretta Lynn style country but quickly grew beyond those constraints. Their third album, Blur The Line, adds a little glitter to the mix, making for sleek, snarly rock.

Quasi, Jeffrey Lewis @ Mercury Lounge
Long-running indie duo of Sam Combes and Janet Weiss bring their organ and drums to Knitting Factory tonight, their second of two shows in NYC with tourmate Jeffrey Lewis.

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

Elliott Smith

Like the four Elliott Smith tribute shows that took place in August to honor the songwriting legend in the ten-year anniversary of his death, another will happen in NYC on the actual day of the anniversary, October 21. The tribute show happens at Glasslands and includes some pretty great musicians like Cat Power, DIIV's Zachary Cole Smith with Sky Ferreira, Yoni Wolf (of Why?), The Low Anthem, Luke Temple, Marissa Nadler, Aaron Pfenning (of Rewards, ex-Chairlift), Sadie Dupuis (of Speedy Ortiz), Adam Schatz, The Perennials and Tereu Tereu.

$50 tickets for the show are on sale now, and some of the proceeds will benefit Elliott Smith Memorial Fund. That fund benefits Outside In and Free Arts for Abused Children, and there's also an IndieGogo campaign raising money for Outside In that includes rewards related to the Glasslands show:

* Set lists from the night
* High-quality 12" x 11" concert posters, designed by local artist Allison Specketer
* Live recording of the show (participating bands TBA)
* Goodie Bag (details TBA) from Kill Rock Stars
* High-quality 18" x 24" concert poster, autographed by all the musicians

Celestial Shore

Brooklyn's Celestial Shore released their new album, 10x, last week via Hometapes. "Beachy" is a term that's thrown around a lot with them, and you can hear traces of Brian Wilson in their harmonies, but "Little Deuce Coup" this ain't. The group bring an intricate mathy-ness to the music, with frequent time/tempo changes making the album right at, er, home on Hometapes (All Tiny Creatures, Slaraffenland). You can stream two tracks from the album below and the whole thing via Spotify or Rdio.

Celestial Shore play a record release party tonight (9/13) at Silent Barn. Openers are Empress Of and TEEN (both who could probably headline Silent Barn on their own), plus Bueno. The band have a bunch of upcoming NYC shows, actually. They'll support Darwin Deez and Caged Animals at Knitting Factory on September 29 (tickets); play Grand Victory on October 4 with Feuding Fathers; open for Arto Lindsay as part of the CBGB Fest at Bowery Electric on October 12 (tickets); and play with Luke Temple at Le Poisson Rouge on October 14 (tickets). All dates are listed below.

Empress Of also recently announced shows with the 4AD-signed SOHN.

All Celestial Shore dates are listed, along with song streams, below...

Callers

Brooklyn/Providence crew Callers released their third album, Reviver, last year via Partisan. Originally a collaboration between Sara Lucas and Ryan Seaton, Callers are now a four-piece band and if you haven't heard the new album, you can stream it below via Spotify.

The band are gearing up for a March residency at Union Pool where they'll play the first three Thursdays in the month (3/7, 3/14, 3/21). Callers are promising some exciting guests to share the bill with for these shows, including Here We Go Magic's Luke Temple, and Fang Island. As full line-ups (which will include "secret guests") and schedules haven't been finalized, we don't know which dates they are playing (maybe on the same bill, maybe not) but we'll keep you informed. No advance tickets as of right now.

DOWNLOAD: Harlem Shakes - Strictly Game (MP3)

Harlem Shakes @ Highline Ballroom (more by Ryan Muir)
Harlem Shakes

Harlem Shakes' new album, Technicolor Health, is out now on Gigantic. The disc's first single , "Strictly Game," which we've posted before, is posted again above.

The band has upcoming May/June tour dates with Passion Pit and Cale Parks, though none in New York. But that doesn't mean there aren't any Harlem Shakes shows to be had.

First the band plays a "Big Ups to Jules De B." show at Bushwick's Starr Space on Thursday, April 23rd with LD Beghtol (Magnetic Fields, Flare), Hospitality, and Mr. Dream. That show is a party for Jules De Balincourt, who did the artwork for the band's newest record. (More details and artwork below.)

Then the band has a free early show at Pianos on Wednesday, May 6th with The Cringe and Sean Bones. (That's before the Japandroids, The Octagon, Heavenly States show the same night.) Poster for the Shakes gig below.

Then, after a May 16th Sarah Lawrence show (in Westchester County) and the Passion Pit/Cale Parks tour, Harlem Shakes return for a July 1st show at the Bowery Ballroom. Tickets go on sale Friday, April 24th at noon. Openers aren't announced yet.

Before embarking on that tour, Cale Parks (you may know him as one of the guys who plays percussion/piano/vibes in Aloha) is performing at Santos Party House on Saturday, May 9th with Cymbals Eat Guitars, So So Glos, Real Estate and Luke Temple (Here We Go Magic). The show, hosted by Andrew WK, is a benefit for DKMS, which is the world's largest bone marrow donor center. Tickets for that show are on sale.

One day after finishing their tour with the Harlem Shakes, Passion Pit play two headlining shows of their own at Bowery Ballroom (both now sold out).

Video from the Harlem Shakes' March 26th MHOW gig, details on the band's Bushwick show, and all upcoming tour dates below...
