Phosphorescent at ACL 2013 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight’s shows. Here are some highlights…
Marissa Nadler @ Rough Trade
Dream-folk singer Marissa Nadler recently announced that she signed to Sacred Bones for her upcoming LP, and from the sounds of the haunting first single, she’ll be right at home at that label. Hopefully we’ll see hear some of that new stuff at this free in-store. 1 PM, no wristband necessary.
Phosphorescent @ Rough Trade
You might want to hang around Rough Trade after Nadler’s show, as Phosphorescent — whose album Muchacho made RT’s Albums of the Year list (#85) — plays at 3 PM. Like Nadler’s show, no wristband necessary.
Television, Gambles @ Rough Trade
Back in action (though without guitarist Richard Lloyd), Tom Verlaine and the rest of Television play the second of two shows at the new Rough Trade NYC. With a new album in the can, expect new songs…and hopefully plenty of classics. Sold out.
Kill Your Idols, Iron Chic, Concrete Cross, Bad Side @ Santos Party House
NYC/Long Island hardcore vets Kill Your Idols have been pretty active this year, having played Black and Blue and This Is Hardcore, and tonight they conclude their 2-night run at Santos. There’s cool openers both nights too. Tonight gets Iron Chic (who just put out a great album), Concrete Cross, and Bad Side.
Hunters, Audacity, Big Ups @ Glasslands
This is an all-around great bill that rocks, with fuzz rockers Hunters, garage punks Audacity, and post-hardcore rippers Big Ups.
Netherlands, Wild Yaks, Low Fat Getting High, Grandfather @ Death By Audio
This is a record release show for synth-fueled punks Netherlands, and there’s some other good bands on the bill too, including grungy punks Low Fat Getting High.
bEEdEEgEE, Mas Ysa, Pictureplane (DJ) @ Glasslands
This is the live debut by Brian DeGraw’s (of Gang Gang Dance) new solo project bEEdEEgEE, which is just as synthy and weird as much of GGD’s stuff. Local indie pop guy Mas Ysa is on the bill too, and Pictureplane DJs.
NOFX, Implants @ Irving Plaza
Long-running skate punks NOFX are still at it and they return to NYC tonight.
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.
Kool & Kass, Tecla, Pegasus Warning @ Brooklyn Night Bazaar
Brooklyn 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. Tonight’s entertainment includes onetime Das Racist rapper Kool A.D.’s new project with Kass Overall.
Los Lobos @ City Winery
Celebrating their 40th anniversary, Mexican-American rock vets Los Lobos just released a live album, Deconstructed in New York, which was recorded at City Winery last year. They return to the venue for three sold-out nights, this being the first.
