Hello Nurse are playing shows again.

The Protomen play Santos tonight, and listening to the songs at their MySpace makes me think that at a minimum it will be a good time.

Hidden under Crystal Castles' Best New Music rating today on Pitchfork, Alcest got a score almost as high.

Screaming Females play a show in Jersey tonight. Friday they play a school show for NYU.

If you miss tonight's free Black Lips show at Knitting Factory, they're back this summer to play on a boat.

The Against Me! show tonight is all the way in Asbury Park. They hit Brooklyn (and further North in Jersey) with Silversun Pickups this summer.

Dr. Dog recently played on Jimmy Kimmel. Two videos from that performance below...

What else?
