You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...

Nine Inch Nails, Soundgarden, Oneohtrix Point Never @ Susquehanna Bank Center
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.

Jagwar Ma, Cities Aviv @ Webster Hall
With a debut album that owes more than a little to the early-'90s Madchester rave scene, Jagwar Ma will be twistin' your mellon (man) with sunshine vibes to spare.

Eric Copeland (of Black Dice), DJ Dog Dick, King Concubine, Fluct, Robot Death Cult, Kneeling, Alaina Stamatis, Prince Rama @ The Ho_se

Free Pizza, Flower Girl, Hippy, Milk Dick @ Death by Audio
We've all joked about calling a band this but Boston's Free Pizza have gone and done it. Expect catchy/shambly indie rock. If you want a slice, call delivery.

Madison Square Park's "Oval Lawn Series" continues tonight with collaborators Forro in the Dark and Debo Band.

GOASTT (Ghost of a Sabre Tooth Tiger), Nymph @ McCarren ...

Damon Albarn Sister Rust
Jul 29, 2014 9:40pm | StereoGum

Damon Albarn released his debut solo album earlier this year and, while the weather may make it so that another Blur album never sees the light of day, the British musician will never stop making music. “Sister Rust” is a song Albarn wrote for the Scarlett Johansson vehicle Lucy, which just hit theaters. It’s a regal yet low-key song, filled with a lot of strings. “Waiting for the credits to end/ Now and forever,” Albarn sings, which probably isn’t the best turn of phrase considering the middling reviews the film received. Listen below.


Ariel Pink Explains Why He Got Maced On A Date At Robeks
Jul 29, 2014 9:22pm | StereoGum

In a Fox News appearance last September, Ariel Pink alluded to an incident in which he was maced but he didn’t elaborate. He finally tells all to Alexi Wasser in her YouTube show Alexi In Bed. “I got maced by a feminist,” Pink says straight into the camera. He goes on to tell an elaborate story about how he went home with someone who told him all her daddy issues and called him “a saggy Kurt Cobain.” The next morning, they went to a smoothie shop where the young woman (who is apparently in a band) “bitched [him] out in public” following some confusion about who was supposed to pay for the smoothie. After saying something to the effect of, “Shut your mouth, little girl, respect your elders and fucking get out of here,” Pink left the shop but was confronted again by the woman, who maced him and then broke his car’s windshield and rear-view mirrors, and scratched “asshole” into the side of it. It’s a crazy story and I’m not sure exactly what to believe, but it’s worth a watch below.


R.I.P. Virgin Mobile FreeFest
Jul 29, 2014 9:07pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Another prominent music festival has bitten the dust: Virgin Mobile FreeFest will not take place in 2014, festival promoters announced on Tuesday. A staple in the Washington, DC-Baltimore metropolitan area music scene since 2006, the festival was originally known as Virgin Music Festival before rebranding itself as Virgin Mobile FreeFest in 2009.

The last five installments were held at Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, and each festival was free to attend contingent on attendees completing charitable tasks in their community. VIP tickets were also available to purchase, with proceeds donated to the RE*Generation House homeless youth shelter in Washington, D.C.

Organizers did not give a reason for its cancelation, though Virgin founder Richard Branson previously expressed the financial challenges associated with a free event. We’d like to continue to do it for free because it fits the spirit of the brand, Branson explained to the Baltimore Sun in 2012. But if the money men at Virgin say, ‘Look, we did it for free while the public was struggling but now people are getting back on their feet, so maybe we should charge them,’ we’d have to think about it.

Over the years, Virgin Mobile FreeFest has welcomed such acts as Jack White, LCD Soundystem, Pavement, The Black Keys, Vampire Weekend, M83, TV on the Radio, MGMT, and St. Vincent. During its existence as the pay-to-attend Virgin Festival, the line...

Classic Primus Lineup Announces Willy Wonka Tribute Album, Tour, Candy Bars
Jul 29, 2014 8:29pm | StereoGum

Funk rockers Primus are known to have some fun with their releases — previous album titles have included Sailing The Seas Of Cheese and Pork Soda. Their newest album may be their strangest yet: it’s a tribute album to Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory called Primus And The Chocolate Factory With The Fungi Ensemble. It’s the first album that sees the classic ’90s line-up recording together since 1995′s Tales From The Punchbowl. The album will be released on chocolate-colored vinyl and five golden copies will be made and distributed at random, mirroring the plot of the famous book/movie.


Mastodons Brent Hinds Carved A Giant Wooden Mastodong
Jul 29, 2014 7:51pm | StereoGum

When Brent Hinds isn’t fronting Mastodon, he likes to blow off steam by doing some wood carving in his spare time. Over the past year, he’s been busy with recording his band’s new album Once More ’Round The Sun, so for his first carving in almost a year, he channeled all his pent-up wood carving energy into making … well, a giant woodie. His wooden phallus is extraordinarily details, complete with veins and all — he called it his “giant pawnus” when he uploaded pics of the sculpture to his Instagram. Exclaim came up with the perfect name for Hinds’ creation: the Mastodong. Check out a photo of the phallus in its infancy stages (oof) below.


Listen: J Mascis new song Wide Awake, featuring Cat Power
Jul 29, 2014 7:44pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Cat Powers Chan Marshall has had a few different musical partners in the last several weeks. First, she teamed with Coldplay for the the title track to Zach Braff’s upcoming Wish I Was Here film. Then, earlier this month, Eddie Vedder invited her on stage in Portugal to drink a little wine and perform “Tonight You Belong To Me”. Now, Marshalls teaming up with another alt-rock icon, singing backup on J Mascis latest Tied To A Star single, “Wide Awake”.

The result is a dreamy, mostly-acoustic ballad that plays to the blissful tonalities of both singers voices. Cat Powers low, sultry croon diverges beautifully from Mascis more weathered and restrained drawl. Mascis guitar playing stays relatively simple, aside from the occasional finger picking flourish, keeping the focus on just how well their two voices blend together. Though heavily melancholic, theres a tranquil quality to the track that makes it surprisingly comforting despite all the heaps of sorrow.

Listen in below:

Tied To A Star is due out August 26th via Sub Pop. For more sounds, check out lead single “Every Morning”.

Tied to a Star Tracklist:
01. Me Again
02. Every Morning
03. Heal the Star
04. Wide Awake
05. Stumble
06. And Then

Song : FKA Twigs : Pendulum
Jul 29, 2014 7:17pm | My Old Kentucky Blog

FKA Twigs is one of the best things going in music at the moment. Her debut long-play LP1 hits shelves in just a couple of weeks on August 12th via Young Turks. We have had the pleasure of listening to it in full and it lives up to the hype. She has officially dropped another song from it for mass consumption titled “Pendulum”. About it, she claims it as “one of my favourite songs on my record” and we have to agree with that assessment. Listen below and check out the previously released “Two Weeks” here.

Watch Sad Jack White Throw Out The First Pitch At Tonights Tigers Game
Jul 29, 2014 7:15pm | StereoGum

After a rough night playing Detroit’s Fox Theatre yesterday, Jack White threw the ceremonial first pitch in his hometown for the Tigers. Maybe he’s still getting over his recent meme-ification as a disgruntled Cubs fan, but he still couldn’t manage to put on a smile even after throwing a straight pitch down the middle to an eagerly awaiting Santa, who was there as part of a Christmas In July promotion. Watch a video of his pitch below.


J Mascis Wide Awake (Feat. Cat Power)
Jul 29, 2014 6:57pm | StereoGum

Dinosaur Jr. frontman J Mascis casually announced his new album Tied To A Star on Late Night With Seth Meyers a few months back and shared the spry “Every Morning.” The world-weariness of his latest song “Wide Awake” has more in common with the quiet intensity of his last solo album Several Shades Of Why and features vocals from Cat Power’s Chan Marshall. Listen to their duet below.


Jack White threw out the first pitch at Tigers game, still looks sad
Jul 29, 2014 6:53pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Last week, Jack White took in a Chicago Cubs baseball game, and thus, Sad Jack White became the Internet’s new favorite meme. This evening, White headed to the ballpark once again, this time in his hometown of Detroit. The Tigers happen to be celebrating Christmas in July, which might explain the above selfie. Yet, when it came time to throw out the first pitch, he reverted back to his old ways.

Maybe he was still recovering from last night’s turbulent show at the Fox Theatre? Or, perhaps he has something against Santa Claus? Either way, he did throw the ball right down the middle — and, that’s something not everyone can say.

In addition to throw out the first pitch, White brought his Third Man Records Rolling Record Store to the ballpark, where it sold discount vinyl to all Tigers fans.

FKA Twigs Pendulum
Jul 29, 2014 6:18pm | StereoGum

FKA Twigs’ magnificent debut album LP1 is finally out in a few weeks — we’ve heard “Two Weeks” and the recently leaked “Video Girl” and now Zane Lowe has debuted “Pendulum” on BBC Radio 1. “You only want me in open spaces,” Tahliah Barnett sings in an impassioned whisper hovering over a weightless beat. “So lonely trying to be yours.” It’s an amorphous and fluttering track, pushed gently along by a staccato rhythm and her typically immaculate production. She says it’s one of her favorite songs off the new record and you can listen to it below.

Listen: FKA Twigs new song Pendulum
Jul 29, 2014 5:20pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Though FKA Twigs has already shared a few tracks from her forthcoming LP1, including “Two Weeks” and “Video Girl”, several more have been debuted live. That includes “Pendulum”, a mournful number that finds the experimental R&B singer at her most vulnerable and evocative. Now, the studio version has been made available, following its premiere earlier this afternoon on Zane Lowes BBC Radio 1 show.

Twigs self-professed favorite track, “Pendulum” sees her lush falsetto placed squarely between the rattle of mechanical drums and the hum of strange, atmospheric synths. Even as the somewhat jarring sounds threaten to consume every drop of your attention, its damn near impossible to avoid the emotional spell Twigs weaves with each and every revelatory note.

Listen to it now at BBCs website (scroll to the bottom of the page).

LP1 is due out August 12th via Young Turks. For more sounds, check out live versions of the album tracks “Lights On” and “Give Up“. Plus, watch the totally beguiling video for her remix of 2012s “Ache”.

LP1 Tracklist:
01. Preface
02. Lights On
03. Two Weeks
04. Hours
05. Pendulum
06. Video Girl
07. Numbers
08. Closer
09. Give Up
10. Kicks
