Time again for Good Shows, our weekly roundup of what’s good in live music.
There’s almost nothing left for us to say about Titus Andronicus. Except that the show is free. And also this wisdom, dear hipster children, via Droz in PCU: “You’re wearing the shirt of the band you’re going to see? Don’t be that guy.” Brooklyn Night Bazaar, Greenpoint, Friday, July 11 at 8 p.m., free
Brooklyn project DIIV is a little hard to put into a category. They’re an indie-rock band, but their songs are also psychedelic, shoe-gazing, even post-punk at times. They’ve got lots of energy and they’re back on home turf, so you’re pretty much guaranteed a good show. Music Hall of Williamsburg, Friday July 11 at 9 p.m., tickets $15
Don’t be fooled that Alexis Taylor is the lead singer of Hot Chip. His new solo album is way more gentle than Hot Chip’s blitzed-out electro-pop. It’s actually a little shocking that Alexis Taylor is even from the same planet. Rough Trade NYC, Williamsburg, Monday, July 14 at 9 p.m., tickets $14
De La Soul is back, and they’re celebrating 25 damn years in style. We’re actually peeing our pants a little bit about this show. Irving Plaza, Union Square, Wednesday, July 16 at 7:30 p.m., tickets $42
That video is super NSFW, BTW. Tom Fec, aka TOBACCO, is best known as the lunatic frontman of Black Moth Super Rainbow. His music is gross, it’s slimy, it’s fucking weird and a little scary. And we totally wouldn’t have it any other way. Brooklyn Bowl, Williamsburg, Wednesday, July 16 at 8 p.m., tickets $15
