Weekend Warrior, October 21 - 23

Disenchanting, unfiltered, steamrolling melodies streams from Amanda X. That focused post-punk sincerity tumbles ahead in a gritty, graceful manner, compiling a calm catharsis whilst simultaneously exposing the raw threads of emotion. This Saturday’s lineup at Everybody Hits is also reinforced by the delicate introspections of Yankee Bluff, whose loose jangly vibes are hardwired by a polished connection, and the bombarding, heavy rhythms and unrelenting riffs that coalesce as Hound swings for the fences. The exuberant, poetry-engrained punk of Pujol provides another intriguing wrinkle to this evening. Everybody Hits, 529 W. Girard Ave., 8:30pm, $8, All Ages (Photo by Scott Troyan) - Michael Colavita

Robot Princess' upcoming record release show at Footlight on 11.11

Robot Princess (our NYC Record of the Month this past February) is getting ready to celebrate the release of their second full-length album 'Tentacles.' If you love gritty guitars, nonsensical poetry, releasing anxieties, and the sensation of endless freedom, stop by at Ridgewood's Footlight on November 11th and join the celebration! Streaming below the record's excellent opening track entitled 'Claudia.' And if Queens is too far for you, you can catch the band at Mercury Lounge on November 20th. - Ashley Muniz

St. James & The Apostles Record Release Show at Ortlieb's Oct. 21

Psychedelic blues juggernauts St. James & The Apostles are celebrating their third release, White Devil, and good Lord, it's a gritty, nasty, one helluva good time, like dental floss for your soul. The powerhouse trio of Jamie Mahon, Mike Kiker, and Jeff Castner teamed up with Philly legend Joe Nicolo to produce the record. The results are simply divine. Come join the congregation tonight at Ortlieb's to celebrate the birth of White Devil! Also joining in on the ceremony are Brooklyn's The End Men and Amsterdam duo The Shady Greys. Ortlieb's, 847 N. 3rd St., 8pm, $10, 21+ - Keith Kelley

A Deli NYC Premiere: Modern Diet's double single "Karenina // Basement"

Few things in the life of this little blog are more satisfying than putting the spotlight on musicians that actually deserve it. Jake Cheriff, Dan Hemerlein, Harry Terrell and Bernardo Ochoa, also known as NYC's Modern Diet, have put together a cleverly crafted double single—"Karenina // Basement"—off their forthcoming album, 'Sit Down and Dance.' Two seconds into "Karenina", a honeyed, wistful vocal sings "leave me alone"—but it's not that easy to comply, for we've already been given good reasons to stay. Shortly afterwards, an energy-driven montage of drums, guitars, and bass surges in and takes the lead. Throughout the song, the energy is strategically interrupted by a downtempo breakdown, which emphasizes the reprise. "Basement" plays this in reverse, interlacing a prominent laidback groove with heaps of energy. If you get tired of clicking the play buttons down below, word on the street is Modern Diet will be performing a secret gig December 3rd in NYC. Join SoFar Sounds to find out where. - Ashley Muniz
