HAPPY 4/20! Here are all the shows you need to know about this week to #GETLIFTED:Screenshot 2014-10-16 at 10mm

  • Let’s just get things going straight out of work at 7pm, ’cause Canon Logic will be playing the early show at Mercury Lounge tonight with Del Water Gap for twelve bucks per ticket.
  • Just an hour later (and over in Brooklyn) we’ve got a show from Heems at Baby’s All Right with Weekend Money, Topaz Jones, Kahli Abdu and VHS Safari for fifteen bones a person.

  • To start, I’m going to HUGELY recommend that you see Madi Diaz at Rough Trade tonight. Catey Shaw will open the show (which kicks off at 9pm), and tickets will run you just ten bucks in advance, twelve day of show.
  • Or if you head down to Broadway to Baby’s All Right, you can also catch a super worthwhile gig from Modern Vices with Bluffing, Lightning Bug and Youth Signals. (Tickets to this one will set you back ten bucks in advance, twelve day of show as well.)
  • Looking for something a little more affordable but still super dope? evan^patrick will be playing a show with ohnomoon and Physical Fitness at Cameo Gallery tonight for just EIGHT BUCKS!

  • Tonight we’ve got a show from the lovely Jessie Baylin with Dylan LeBlanc over at Bowery Ballroom starting at 9pm (doors at 8pm), so if you’ve got fifteen bones to spare, probably cough it up ASAP for a ticket.
  • And if you head EVERY SO SLIGHTLY WEST, GABI will be at Le Poisson Rouge with Solvey and Vorhees for a record release show which will cost you just twelve bucks to attend.
  • If Brooklyn’s more your jam, though, then just plan on heading to Baby’s All Right for a show from Hannah Cohen, Port St. Willow and Aerial East tonight for ten bucks in advance, twelve day of show.

  • For starters, plan on getting to the Lower East Side’s Mercury Lounge by 9:30pm for a Stone Cold Fox show (with Sean McVerry) which will run you just ten bucks per ticket!
  • Or if you’re a fan of Christine and the Queens (you should be, FYI…) then you should re-route to The Westway where you can catch a twelve dollar in advance // fifteen day of show gig with Evvy and Corbu tonight.
  • And over in Brooklyn, meanwhile, we’ve got a show from Delicate Steve with Celestial Shore that will kick off at 8pm! Provided you’ve got twelve bucks to blow, you should most definitely swing by.
  • OR if that ain’t your jam, just pop down the road to Music Hall of Williamsburg, where San Fermin will perform with Metropolis Ensemble (as well as White Hinterland) for twenty bucks this evening.
  • You can also swing around the corner to Rough Trade instead, where Clear Plastic Masks will be taking the stage with Las Rosas and Dean Cercone at 9pm for just twelve bucks per ticket.
  • Still not feelin’ it? Maybe pop on over to Baby’s All Right, then, ’cause Low Cut Connie will be playing an album release show that you most definitely don’t want to miss. (Tickets are twelve bucks in advance and fifteen day of show.)
  • You’d also be a pretty big idiot to miss out on Lindstrøm at Good Room tonight, so if you can afford the fifteen dollar second release tickets (third release will rise to twenty) then GRAB THOSE RIGHT NOW.
  • Of course, I also have to mention the competing gig that Verboten’s got happening this evening from Bag Raiders for twenty bucks // as a former Modular Records intern, you may be able to guess where my loyalties lie on this one!

  • Tonight (provided you can get there by 6:30pm) Madeon will be taking the stage at Webster Hall for twenty-five bucks in advance, thirty day of show, so you might consider grabbing a ticket before it’s TOO LATE.
  • For something a little more affordable, you might want to head #DOWNTOWN to Cake Shop, where Breakfast In Fur will be playing a show with Maybird and others for a mere eight bucks.
  • And in Brooklyn, you’ve got a SECOND opportunity to catch San Fermin performing at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Once again, tickets will run you twenty bucks each, but this time Son Little will open things up.
  • But if you’re a Yelawolf fan, you’ll want to head just up the street to Rough Trade, where there will be NOT JUST a show, but also a signing this evening. The best part? Entry is FREE with a purchase.
  • We’re also pretty into the Seryn gig that will happen later on in the evening at Rough Trade with Conveyor and Corey James Bost, so plan on sticking around for that one! (Tickets are ten bucks in advance, twelve day of show.)
  • Or just go dance your face off late-night (read: 11:59pm onward) over at Baby’s All Right, where the Adventure[s] DJs will be putting on an Illuminati Recruitment Ritual party for just five bucks a person.

  • So long as you don’t mind getting your evening started early (read: 7pm), you should consider hitting up Mercury Lounge for a gig ft. Downbeat Keys, Twin Wave and Superfecta, which will cost you ten bucks a person.
  • MEANWHILE, just up the street at Bowery Ballroom we’ve got Speedy Ortiz playing a show with Mitski and Krill starting at 9pm; tickets to that guy will set you back a reasonable fifteen bones each.
  • And if you don’t mind braving things a bit #UPTOWN, then you might be cool with heading to Terminal 5 for a Kodaline gig this evening instead! If that’s the case, prepare to cough up twenty-five bucks per ticket.
  • Nobody likes Manhattan anymore, though, so maybe just focused on the overly-promised land that is Brooklyn instead, ’cause Wild Leaves will be playing a show with The Yum Dee Days for just eight bucks in advance, ten day of show.
  • You can also still snag some affordable (read: ten dollar) first release tickets to catch Museum of Love at Good Room tonight! Get ’em quick, though, ’cause soon they’ll increase to fifteen a pop.
  • But let’s be real; you’re probably BROKE AS FUCK, in which case you should get your day going SUPER early to take advantage of the very free Fireships show that’s happening at Rough Trade at 2pm.

  • First, if you’ve got some vinyl shopping to do then get yourself to Rough Trade, ’cause with your purchase you’ll get free entry to today’s gig from The Wombats, which should be MOST EXCELLENT.
  • Speaking of free, you might also want to head to the Studio at Webster Hall for a show from the inimitable Bonnie “Prince” Billy, Watter and Stillwater Artisanal! Seems like you just show up? I’d get there early if I were you.
  • And everybody likes They Might Be Giants (ACTUAL FACT!) so plan on getting yourself over to Music Hall of Williamsburg for an evening with the band! Tickets will cost you twenty-five bucks a pop.
