Future Punx @ Glasslands in March (more by Amanda Hatfield)
For all of tonight's shows, and tomorrow's, check out our NYC concert calendar.
Future Punx, Roses, Darlings, The Beds @ Death by Audio
Even on a busier night, this DbA show would be a good option. Tonight marks the first NYC show from Roses, the new band from Juan Velazquez who used to be in LA's Abe Vigoda. Their dark postpunk-y pop will go well with headliners Future Punx's new wave redux and Darling's straight-up indie rock. As for openers The Beds, maybe someone can shed some light on who they are.
RedRedRed, Bezier, Max and Mara, Vereker, Josh Cheon (DJ Set) @ Radio Bushwick
'80s-underground-goth-leaning label Dark Entries celebrates its fifth anniversary tonight, featuring industrial duo RedRedRed, San Francisco's Bézier and Max + Mara, and label founder Josh Cheon on DJ duties. This was originally supposed to be at Baby's All Right but is now at Radio Bushwick.
Drowners, Spires, Mainland, The Can't Tells, Little Racer @ Brooklyn Night Bazaar
The Deli has been zine-ing the scene for ten years and are celebrating the anniversary this weekend with shows at Brooklyn Night Bazaar. Tonight features quality pop-rock from the likes of Drowners, Spires, Little Racer and more. Free and don't forget to RSVP to skip the line.
Supersuckers, Ten Ton Mojo @ Gramercy Theatre
Supersuckers have been putting out quality cowpunk, garage rock and more since the early '90s, and this year they returned with Get the Hell, their first album since 2008. We'll likely hear some of that tonight, and hopefully some classics too.
Nine Inch Nails, Soundgarden, Oneohtrix Point Never @ Jones Beach
Relive 1994 with two of alternative rock's biggest bands who both put out seminal albums on the same day that year. Cool openers on this tour too. Tonight it's ambient electronics wiz Oneohtrix Point Never.
The Offspring, Bad Religion, Pennywise @ Stone Pony Summerstage
Speaking of 20th anniversaries, The Offspring's classic, Smash, is two decades old this year. They'll play that in full, with the undercard being their old Epitaph labelmates Bad Religion and Pennywise.
Snowmine, The Casket Girls @ South Street Seaport
One of Brooklyn's more underrated bands, Snowmine make shimmering, widescreen, modern pop. Tonight they play the free Seaport Music Fest with Georgia's The Casket Girls who take sunshine pop and run it through distorted synths.
Blackfinger, Beelzefuzz, Kings Destroy @ The Acheron
Original Trouble singer Eric Wagner fronts doomish psych rockers Blackfinger, who are supporting of their eponymous debut which came out back in January. If you haven't caught Wagner's classic warble yet, this is a great opportunity.
Ivy, Ajax, Nandas @ Lulu's
There's not too much going on in NYC tonight, but it's as good a night as any to grab some free pizza (with your beer) at Greenpoint bar Lulu's -- which is sadly closing in a week -- and catch some of NYC's better local punk bands.
DJ Mustard, Shift K3Y, Alex English, rekLES @ Webster Hall
London producer Shift K3Y's recent single "Touch" is pretty addictive and sounds like it'll sound great in a big room like Webster Hall. DJ Mustard has been behind some of the better rap songs of late, so his set should be fun too.
Guardian Alien, Grasshopper, Raajmahal, Good Willsmith, Sugarm, Velvet Zombie @ Trans Pecos
It's a night of experiment noise-n-drone and other out there stuff, headlined by Guardian Alien which is helmed by sometimes Liturgy drummer Greg Fox.

And another one goes. One of the original free-pizza-with-beer bars in North Brooklyn (that also hosted free music a lot of nights), Lulu's in Greenpoint, will be shutting it's doors for good on August 9. From the venue's Facebook:To our amazing customers: It is with a heavy heart that I tell you that the rumors are true. Lulu's will be closing its doors in two weeks; our last day open will be August 9th. We would like to thank all of you for making this such an amazing place to hang out! The customers at this bar are the best ever and I'm not just saying that Please stay tuned as there are a lot of fun shows in the next couple of weeks, with our grand finale show on August 9th to be announced soon. - Lulu'sGreenpointers informs us that Lulu's closing comes over a dispute with the landlord when owners wanted to turn it into a gay bar:In April of this year Lulu's owner John McGillion took out a lawsuit against his landlord for not allowing him to turn the establishment into a gay bar. According to the New York Post, McGillion stated that he was "barely scraping by on the proceeds of the bar" and felt that he would "be able to make a considerable profit" by making Lulu's a gay venue. The landlord's alleged (and shocking) 'anti-gay clause' stopped this idea from ever coming to fruition.Lulu's, we're sad to see you go, especially under such circumstances. There's still a week still to enjoy the music, drinks and free pizza. Friday (8/1) there's a solid bill of local punk with Ivy, Ajax, and Nandas.
Fantastic first release from upstart imprint, NEWBODY RECORDS, helmed by Jonathn Roshad, aka, NEWBODY. The inaugural EP from newcomer, An Expresso, is a groovy affair with all manner of jangley pianos, vintage vocal hooks and remixes from NEWBODY and Groove Riddim.
With a full release schedule already posted, and snippets of forthcoming tunes on the NEWBODY RECORDS soundcloud, I know that this label is gonna sneak in as one of my favorite new ones for the year. Keep them peepers peeled, ya’ll, time for some NEWBODY!
20 year old, UK producer/DJ, Tommy Vercetti has given Love Not Money Records one smasher of a release with his recent, ‘Good Feelings EP.’ Featuring 3 original cuts and a remix from Scott Forshaw, the tracks included sit clearly in the rich pedigree of classic house sounds with its rumbling basslines, stabbed-out chords, shuffling beats and slick vocal hooks.
Give this one a go and support all things Love Not Money!

As mentioned, Bear in Heaven's new album Time Is Over One Day Old is out next week via Dead Oceans. The record furthers their interstellar travels via fat waves of synths, heavy on grooves and rolling drums. (The album title, by the way, comes from an error message on a friend's television.) You can stream the album in its entirety over at NPR.
The band also consistently make interesting videos which continues on their just-released one for "Time Between." Directed by Nick Bentgen, it was filmed over the course of an month across the five-borroughs during the late night fringe hours. It's quite pretty, and a little creepy/tense at times, and you can watch over at the The NY Times.
Bear in Heaven play a record release party on Monday (8/4) at Rough Trade NYC which is free with purchase of the new album (you get two entry wristbands with each purchase). Then they'll be back in September at the end of their tour for two homecoming shows at Bowery Ballroom (9/16) and Music Hall of Williamsburg (9/17), both with Young Magic. Tickets are still available.

California hardcore ragers Dangers -- who have one of the greatest Last.fm tags: "unreasonably pissed off" -- and cinema grinders Graf Orlock will be joined by Italian destroyers Holy for a tour of the East Coast this August. Dangers will actually get rolling out West with three dates that sub Holy and Graf Orlock for Ceremony. Then, the three will hook-up on and drop into cities such as Chicago, Philadelphia, and Asbury Park. The three will hit Brooklyn's 538 Johnson on August 22 with Wet Witch and Vulture Shit. Tickets are $8 at the door. The next day, they'll play NYC's ABC No Rio (8/23) with Blackest and Ubasute for a 3 PM mid-day matinee. (They'll play Philly that night.) Tickets are $8 at the door. All dates are listed below.
Dangers released EP Five O'Clock Shadows at the Edge of the Western World back in January, continuing on in the spirit of their 2010 breakout Messy, Isn't It? Graf Orlock have been busy with their label Vitriol, but found time to get back in the studio. Preorders are now up for their 7" Trailer, with a full-length apparently on the way as well. Finally, the hefty Holy assembled the blistering Seclusion MMXIV EP this month which you can stream below as well..
All of the tour dates are listed, along with streams from the bands, below.
