Nypc_whiteroom_1British Sea Power + Pela + 1990s + Tiny Masters Of Today + Stardeath and White Dwarfs + The Grey Race @ Bowery Ballroom (6pm, $17)

New Young Pony Club + Muscels + Simian Mobile Disco (DJ set) + The Cool Kids @ Studio B (11pm, $10)

Islands + Yo Majesty + Thunderheist + Dengue Fever + Octopus Project @ Highline Ballroom (8pm, $20)

Imperial Teen + Aqua Sorba @ Southpaw (9pm, $20)

Division Day + The 1900’s + Let’s Go Sailing @ Union Hall (8pm, $8)

M.I.A. @ Terminal 5 (8pm, $30)

Stars @ Town Hall (8pm, $25 – $30)

I SAY: M.I.A. is certainly tempting, but with it’s location (not near anything else) and her being the only act on the bill makes it not so appealing. Stars are usually pretty good live, but I don’t really like the new album. Instead, I’m heading to Bowery probably just in time to catch Tiny Masters of Today, and bolt right after British Sea Power (always great live) to catch New Young Pony Club at Studio B. NYPC’s show at the White Room was one of my favorites of last year, I’m hoping they’ll replicate it at the best place in NYC to see dance acts. The show at Highline is tempting, though — as is the show at Union Hall. What I really wish is that some booker had had the foresight to put the 1990s and the 1900s on the same bill.

  1. Really don't think there's anything this day that holds a candle to that Merc line-up.
