NINE INCH NAILS

Most of Pavement's fall reunion tour is at big venues -- like their Kings Theatre shows in Brooklyn -- but they've just added a date at Austin's 3TEN which is around 350 capacity. They haven't played places that small since the early '90s.
Chicago post-rock icons Tortoise have announced a handful of fall dates, happening in Brooklyn, Chicago, Portland, and Los Angeles.

Former A Place to Bury Strangers bassist Dion Lunadon just announced his new solo album, Beyond Everything, which is out June 10 on In the Red. He'll be on tour with The Black Angels in June, including stops in Denver, Boise, Seattle, Portland, and more, and has a few small club shows, including Brooklyn's Union Pool on April 29 with Kate Clorer and Licks. Head here for all dates.
THE FEST 2022
CIRCLE JERKS CANCEL ALL EAST COAST SHOWS
Circle Jerks had been forced to postpone a few shows on their current 40th anniversary tour with 7Seconds and Negative Approach after Keith Morris contracted Covid. He's still recovering, and the band have now announced that they'll be postponing all remaining East Coast shows, including this week's two NYC dates. Feel better, Keith!
MARCO BENEVENTO'S FOLLOW THE ARROW FEST

"So to have the opportunity to throw a big party with some of my favorite bands and closest friends right in my own backyard is a dream come true. We're so excited to get everyone over to Arrowood Farms on a gorgeous Saturday afternoon and celebrate the positive." Tickets are on sale now.
HARLEM FESTIVAL OF CULTURE
Questlove's Oscar-winning Summer of Soul (...Or, When the Revolution Could Not Be Televised) documentary brought renewed interest to 1969's Harlem Cultural Festival, which was held in Mount Morris Park (now known as Marcus Garvey Park) and dubbed the "Black Woodstock," and now a new festival inspired by that one has been announced: the inaugural Harlem Festival of Culture.
In addition to opening shows for Beach House this summer, Mary Lattimore also has headlining dates ahead, including a NYC show at Bowery Ballroom on June 7 with Little Black Egg (Georgia Hubley of Yo La Tengo) and Ulla. All dates are here.
