Fiona Apple recently played Governors Ball in NYC and then announced three more NYC-area shows that went on sale today. Those don’t happen until October though, so if you’re itching to see her, consider heading to Ives Concert Park in Danbury, CT TONIGHT
Spectrum Road, a super-group of rock instrumental giants Vernon Reid, Jack Bruce, Cindy Blackman and John Medeski, play B.B. King’s tonight. There’s video of them in action below.
“Remix Artist Collective” RAC, along with Green Label Sound, take over the late night portion of the evening tonight (with Jeffrey Jerusalem of YACHT) and Saturday (with Body Language) at Brooklyn Bowl. Doors at 11:30pm, shows at midnight.
The Spy Music Festival kicks off a week of experimental music tonight with a show at Union Hall featuring Peter Stampfel of Holy Modal Rounders, Rhys Chatham / Ryan Sawyer Duo, Skeletons and Gunn / Truscinski Duo.
At the movies, there’s Neil Young Journeys (directed by Jonathan Demme), plus Beasts of the Southern Wild which everyone is saying is amazing. Or you could go see Channing Tatum male stripper flick Magic Mike, which is actually getting pretty good reviews (it is directed by Steven Soderbergh).
The 14th Annual Del Close Marathon begins tonight at UCB, and runs all weekend.
Daniel Johnston recently stopped by NPR to play their “Tiny Desk.” Video of that is below.
Australia’s Presets, who play Terminal 5 in October, just released the video for “Youth in Trouble,” the first single from their new album Pacifica and you can watch that too below.
