Tonight, Religious Knives (featuring members of Mouthus and Double Leopards) will play at Williamsburg restaurant/performance space Monkey Town. Over at the Issue Project Room, you can hear Canadian electronic musician Mitchell Akiyama.
WFMU favorites Clockcleaner are back in town supporting their great new album on Load Records. The Philadelphia band plays a free show Saturday afternoon for the final installment of the summer concert series at the East River Park Amphitheater.
Finally, the current incarnation of Silver Apples will play in the area a bunch of times next week.

The band plays a free early show on Wednesday at Cake Shop, followed by a show later that evening at the Knitting Factory, and another show at Silent Barn on Thursday night.
