Tonight is a double dose of new music releases!

Future rockers, Outernational, will be quaking the Knitting Factory stage, alongside Radio Armada and Uzuhi, for one night in Brooklyn before heading back to Los Angeles. The theme of the night is “bring two friends who haven’t seen Outernational,” so spread the word! It’s special evening, not only because the boys are back in town, but because  the “Que Queremos/The Disappeared 7″” vinyls are finally here! You can finally own a sneak peak of what’s to come. The show will be broadcasted at 10pm EST and will be open to viewers’ questions and comments.  Doors are 7pm, ALL AGES, $12.

Across the Williamsburg Bridge, at Arlene’s Grocery, another high caliber band, decibel., is also unveiling new material: a whole other 7″! It’s going to be quite the show from what I’ve heard, and artist/friend of the band, Jason Trentacoste, will be painting in the style of well, decibel. You can find out what that looks like at 10pm. It’s  21+, $10.

It was a night of electro-indie pop-rock and matching suits at Bowery Ballroom on September 24. NYC’s Jump Into the Gospel donned white suits, emphasizing “the Gospel,” as they made their debut performance at the infamous venue, offering up tracks from their EP and yet to be released material, due out in the late fall. The were  accompanied fellow New Yorkers, People Get Ready, who didn’t wear suits, and supporting Detroit’s Dale Earnhardt Jr Jr, who had neon checked suits that glowed in blacklight. Here’s what I’m talking about:

New York and Georgia joined forces at Brooklyn Bowl on Thursday, September 22 to pay homage to Neil Young. Playing both original and Young material, Hollis Brown rocked above the smashes of bowling strikes happening stage left, and Dead Confederate performed a breathtaking rendition of  “Tonight’s the Night” in its entirety. As lead vocalist Hardy Morris joked, “Verbatim!”

Fashion week is upon us, and one of my favorite “fashionably disheveled” rock outfits, The Click Clack Boom, are  strutting their stuff  in the name of Fashion’s Night Out tonight at the Original Penguin Store in SoHo (103 Greene St.) at 9pm. No need for penguin suits, this is a casual affair, with refreshments provided by Pirate’s Booty, Crumbs, and Milagro Tequila, and customizable denim! AND, it’s FREE!
