Gospels, Rumors, Bent Shapes @ Glasslands
If you’re going to this show, openers Bent Shapes are worth getting there early for with their spunky, angsty take on indiepop.
Magic Man, The Novel Ideas, Photocomfort, Jarod Dickerson @ 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 show is headlined by Boston synthpop outfit Magic Man.
Lost Boy?, Slonk Donkerson, The Denzels, Breakfast In Fur @ Mercury Lounge
Miss the days of catchy ’90s alt-pop? Tonight’s line-up at Mercury Lounge features a full roster of local bands who do too.
Carousel, Mirror Queen, Township, Eidetic Seeing @ Acheron
This show is presented by psych label Tee Pee and features two of its more ’70s-riff-loving acts — Pittsburgh’s Carousel and Brooklyn quartet Mirror Queen.
Cassie Ramone, Colleen Green, Virginia Trance, Juniper Rising, Xray Eyeballs @ Death by Audio
This very solid bill features many local bands but don’t miss LA’s Colleen Green who makes charming, Ramones-influenced low-fi pop.
Kim Ann Foxman, Archie Pelago, Nooka Jones @ Glasslands
You may know Kim Ann Foxman as a Hercules and Love Affair collaborator, and tonight she’ll keep Glasslands dancing at this DJ night which also includes Archie Pelago and Nooka Jones.
Magik Markers, Degreaser, Lushes @ Union Pool
Noise rock trio Magik Markers returned in 2013 with their first album since 2009, and tonight they celebrate the album with a genre-appropriate bill of Degreaser and Lushes.
Darlene Love @ BB King’s
Still in the holiday spirit? Darlene Love does her last of three holiday shows at BB King’s tonight, and you can count on her to bring plenty of Christmas/seasonal hits.
Christian metal vets Stryper have postponed their show at Stage 48 due to weather.
