Tonight! Public Image Ltd., Keepaway, DOM, Janelle Monae, Phantogram, BRAHMS, BELL, And ARMS
Tonight, find Mr. Johnny Rotten aged to post-punk perfection with Public Image Ltd. at Terminal 5, where you'll catch the ex-Sex Pistols frontman wailing about "Death Disco," songs that aren't love songs, and the like. At Mercury Lounge, discover a couple of Christopher R. Weingarten-approved acts: Keepaway ("prismatic omni-pop in the wake of MGMT, Yeasayer, Chairlift, and the more accessible parts of Animal Collective") and the simply stated DOM ("quasi-chillwave bursts of happy waterfalls"). Meanwhile, a crew of pompadoured-android hopefuls will attend the free, filled-to-capacity Janelle Monae "emotion picture" at the Highline Ballroom, while Dilla-dosing rockers Phantogram also headline a sold-out show at Maxwell's. Lastly, three bands who insist upon CAPITALIZATION combine for one show at Pianos: sultry synth glam-poppers BRAHMS, amniotic-electro BELL, and the reverb-soaked remnants of the Harlem Shakes, ARMS.
