What’s going on Saturday? (Gene Clark tribute, Beach Party, Neutral Milk Hotel, Big Ups, Har Mar, AEvangelist & more)
Browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight’s shows. Here are some highlights…
Gene Clark’s ‘No Other’ tribute w/ members of Beach House, Fleet Foxes, Grizzly Bear, The Walkmen, Lower Dens & more @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Tonight is the first of two nights at Music Hall of Williamsburg where former Byrd Gene Clark’s 1974 solo album, No Other, will be performed in full by this all-star indie lineup.
Beach Party, Tei Shi, Charlie Waters Quartet, Big Ups, The Range (DJ), Au Revoir Simone (DJ), Lee Bannon (DJ) @ Baby’s All Right
While their name might elicit groans from some, LA good time rockers Beach Party have the approval of Ty Segall who produced a couple of their recordings. We dig Big Ups too. This show is a benefit for the Ali Forney Center for homeless LGBT youth.
Ævangelist, Oak, Artificial Brain, Disparish @ Saint Vitus
Our heavy sister site Invisible Oranges is presenting this show, which should be a good one. Don’t miss Disparish, which features Andrew Hock of Castevet, and who make their live debut tonight.
Neutral Milk Hotel, Elf Power @ BAM
After releasing one of the most classic indie albums of all time with In the Aeroplane Over the Sea, Neutral Milk Hotel pretty much disappeared with frontman Jeff Mangum choosing to remain mostly out of the public eye. A few years ago, Mangum began touring again, but it wasn’t until late 2013 that Neutral Milk Hotel returned to the road. Their reunion tour finally comes to NYC this week and this is the third of five shows here.
Har Mar Superstar, Computer Magic, Not Blood Paint, The Static Jacks @ 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 line-up is headlined by the ever-entertaining Har Mar Superstar. Should be a fun one. Free.
Adventure, Jimmy Whispers, Laser Background, Cloud Becomes Your Hand, Celosa @ Death By Audio
Baltimore beatmaker Adventure headlines this night of dance-friendly fun.
Blondes, MGUN, Rem Koolhaus, Contakt, Space Jam, C-Sick, Mayster @ Glasslands
NYC dance duo Blondes can be found playing local shows pretty often, and tonight’s as good a chance as any to catch them.
Hippy, The Hairs, Dead Painters, Rad Dreams @ Muchmore’s
Fans of indiepop will likely dig this bill featuring hummable tunes, and mostly-tuned guitars.
Ed Askew, Pure Horsehair @ Union Pool (2 pm)
Ed Askew is a certifiable folk legend whose excellent (and often underappreciated) material dates back to the late ’60s, and it’s quite the treat that we still get to see him perform today.
R. Stevie Moore, Gary Wilson, DJ Dubious Luxury @ Glasslands
Godfather of home recording R. Stevie Moore is guaranteed to put on a quirky show, but for some (especially those who like Ariel Pink), he’ll likely be very inspiring too. Meanwhile, fellow cult legend Gary Wilson was making ahead-of-its-time new wave in the ’70s and has also made fans of newer musicians like Beck and Questlove.
Heliotropes, Clouder, Backwords, The Meaning of Life, Young Oprah Winfrey @ Radio Bushwick
Power-riff trio Heliotropes lead the way tonight at one of Bushwick’s newest, slickest venues.
Toys and Tiny Instruments, Leda @ Cake Shop
Playing songs with kazoos, plastic guitars and other miniature gear would be a total novelty if the songs weren’t as good as they are.
Gramatik, Tokimonsta, Gibbz @ Best Buy Theater
Though TOKiMONSTA got her start in the Flying Lotus beat scene, she’s usually on more EDM-oriented bills these days, like tonight’s with Gramatik.
The Echo-Friendly, Samson, Jack & Eliza @ Coco 66
Brooklyn big-pop duo The Echo Friendly wrap up their January residency at Coco 66 tonight.
Dr. Dog, Saint Rich @ Terminal 5
Philadelphia’s popular roots pop band, Dr. Dog, spent a good portion of the fall touring with The Lumineers and are now on their own supporting 2013’s B-Room.
