Tonight! Abe Vigoda, the xx, and Dappled Cities
Behold: fresh from the Los Angeles DIY scene, Abe Vigoda (the band, not the actor, to your left) mauls instruments with punk ferocity while dabbling in steel drums and syncopated rhythms at the Mercury Lounge. Then, the xx play another gig at Webster Hall...and you might not want to miss their sibilant duets and off-white electronic canvas of sound, even if you know they'll be back soon. Finally, with a cinematic string section and spacey keyboards, Australian quartet Dappled Cities bestow epic fanfares at the Cake Shop.
