Warpaint @ Baby's All Right
Makers of sinewy grooves and otherworldly harmonies, Warpaint hit NYC tonight for this free, one-off show. Maybe they'll spill the beans on new album plans (it's been two years). They'll be back this fall as part of their North American tour.

Jim Breuer (and the Loud & Rowdy) @ Knitting Factory Brooklyn
Former SNL cast member Jim Breuer is supporting his new rawk album, Songs from the Garage. “I basically want the crowd to have a blast, and I write what I feel that I would love if I was in the crowd. So, going into the record the music had to be killer and have great hooks, that was most important, and I wanted to balance that with something that’s funny.”

Night Train w/ Michelle Buteau @ Littlefield
Michelle Buteau fills in for regular Night Train host Wyatt Cenac and welcomes a very solid bunch of guests: Jo Firestone, Hari Kondabolu, Beth Stelling, Graham Kay and the always entertaining Found Footage Festival guys.

Fronted by griot-guitarist Mamady Kouyaté, The Mandingo Ambassodors have been bringing the sound of Guinea to NYC for over ten years. This is a free show.
