What’s going on Saturday?
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Alex Lahey, Little Racer @ Mercury Lounge
Melbourne, Australia’s Alex Lahey released one of our favorite indie rock debuts of last year with her B-Grade University EP. It’s lyrical, catchy, and it’s got a real strong backbone. She won us over even more in Austin during SXSW last week, and now we’re thrilled to be presenting her first two NYC shows. This is the second. See you there?!
Pallbearer, Marissa Nadler, Kayo Dot @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Pallbearer just released their great new album Heartless, which is both poppier and proggier than anything they'd done prior. It's still got some crushing riffs, but it's the least "metal" album they've put out yet, which makes tonight's openers that much more appropriate. Marissa Nadler is a dark folk singer who's no stranger to touring, collaborating with, and covering metal bands; and Kayo Dot started out as a metal band but their latest album took them in a synthpop direction.
The Zombies @ Town Hall
Colin Blunstone, Rod Argent and their current lineup of The Zombies are celebrating the 50th anniversary of their classic Odessey & Oracle by playing the whole thing live. Before that, you'll get a set of other Zombies favorites plus a few solo Blunstone and Argent songs.
Sneaks, Future Punx (DJ), The Wants, Lily K and Horn Horse @ ALPHAVILLE
Washington DC-based artist Eva Moolchan makes minimal, post-punk-influenced music as Sneaks. If you dig ESG, Gang of Four, The Slits or Rexy, you will likely want to hear It's A Myth, the first Sneaks album for Merge.
The Memories (ft. Colleen Green), Emotional, Ben Katzman's DeGreaser @ Baby's All Right
Stoner surf pop band The Memories are touring with their SoCal pal Colleen Green as part of the group.
The Lot Radio One Year Anniversary @ Brooklyn Bazaar
Williamsburg coffee stand/online station The Lot Radio celebrates one year of diverser programming with this party featuring sets from a whole lot of DJs, including Chances With Wolves, FaltyDL, Justin Strauss, Miho Hatori (of Cibo Matto), Mike Simonetti, Pictureplane, Vito & Druzzi (The Rapture), and more.
Trentemoller, TOM And His Computer @ Irving Plaza
Danish electronic musician Trentemøller released Fixion last year, dealing up gothy textures and brining in Savages Jehnny Beth for a song.
Dude York, PAWS, Petite League @ Knitting Factory Brooklyn
Seattle trio Dude York make crunchy, anthemic powerpop with a late ’70s sense of melody and just a little ’90s flash. They're well matched in the '90s crunch department with Scotland's PAWS.
Cosmonauts, The Molochs, Navy Gangs @ Union Pool
California’s The Molochs released America’s Velvet Glory back in January, a terrific collection of ’60s-ish psych pop with a whiff of new wave that recalls, more than anything, the heyday of the LA ’80s Paisley Underground scene (Dream Syndicate, Three O’Clock, Bangles). This is the first of their four-show residency with Orange County psych-shoegazers Cosmonauts.
Planning For Burial, No Sun, neaux @ Saint Vitus
Planning for Burial, aka Thom Wasluck, is a one-man band that mixes outsider genres like doom metal, shoegaze, drone, and post-punk, and he calls the concoction "Gloom." Earlier this month, he released the very solid new album Below the House.
CLOSENESS, O Paradiso, Roarke Menzies @ Knockdown Center
CLOSNESS is the new collaborative project of The Faint singer Todd Fink and his wife Orenda Fink (of Azure Ray and Now It’s Overhead). They make synthy jams that should appeal to Faint fans, and they recently released their debut EP, Personality Therapy.
Rabit (live), M.E.S.H., Moor Mother, GENG @ Sunnyvale
This bill of experimental/electronic music is stacked from start to finish. Tomorrow, Moor Mother and GENG will be part of a unique collaborative show at MoMA PS1.
