Friday, June 26: The Plastic Crimewave Vision Celestial GUITARKESTRA that formed as more than 50-strong in Chicago one night at the Empty Bottle was so epic that we decided to fly the mastermind behind it to New York so we could share in the fun. While Oneida's Kid Millions keeps time on the skins, anyone who brings a guitar and amp can play for free, and members of Espers, Charalambibes, Vetiver, Tower Recorders, not to mention a few special guests, will be there to vibe in the great key of E. (For everyone else it's $8). With openers Puffy Areolas, Samara Lubelski and Prince Rupert Drops. Cake Shop, 152 Ludlow Street, Manhattan.
Saturday, June 27: We've been throwing our monthly Test Pattern party since the beginning of the year, and it hasn't failed to be our craziest night of the month every time. We're psyched to throw this upcoming party with some of our favorite bands. With Pterodactyl, A Sunny Day in Glasgow, Grooms, Boogie Boarder, and Ana Lola Roman. Death by Audio, 49 S 2nd, Brooklyn.
