Kero Kero Bonito

You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...

Kero Kero Bonito, Destiny, Bruce Smear, Maxo, Balún, Jerry Paper, Love Spread, DV-i, Ary (of Anamanaguchi) @ Palisades
PC Music-related London trio Kero Kero Bonito's music pays tongue-in-cheek homage to the shiny plastic future of J-pop, rapping and singing about food, playing videogames, the merits of cats vs dogs and other light conversation. First NYC show.

Big Ups, Yvette, "Uld (UK)", Shopping @ Elvis Guesthouse
This is a cool show all around with local representation from the Fugazi/Slint-esque post-hardcore band Big Ups and the atonal noise rockers Yvette, plus UK post-punks Shopping and a band billed as "Uld (UK)" who are apparently on Fat Possum Records.

'The Hum' w/ Tamsin Wilson (Wilsen), Juliana Ronderos (Salt Cathedral), Idgy Dean, Katrina Cunningham; Tom Tom Magazine Curated Set (all drummers) @ Manhattan Inn
The October edition of 'The Hum' continues at Manhattan Inn tonight. Each show has different artists collaborating with each other, and it's free with a $5-10 suggested donation.

Night Train feat. Wyatt Cenac @ Littlefield
All aboard Wyatt Cenac's weekly comedy cavalcade, this week featuring guests Eugene Mirman, Beth Stelling, Charlie Pickering, and Christian Polanco.

It's Columbus Day which may be why there's not too much else going on. (Rest up: CMJ starts tomorrow.) To our Canadian friends: happy Thanksgiving! For all of tonight's shows, and tomorrow's, check out our NYC concert calendar.

For laughs, check out the NYC Comedy calendar too.
