School Night!: Nosaj Thing, Body Language, High Highs, Yeasayer (DJ Set), April 17, FREE with RSVP
Even if you couldn't get tickets to the Kraftwerk retrospective at MoMA, there are still benefits to having the German man-machines in town. For example, tomorrow, Volkswagen is throwing an after party with Los Angeles producer Nosaj Thing and a host of other synthpop acts. Best of all it’s FREE with your RSVP.
Tuesday, April 17, 9 p.m. Bowery Ballroom, 335 Bowery (between 2nd and 3rd Streets); 212-505-9100.

Com Truise, Tobacco, Shine 2009, Selebrities, Beacon, Music Hall of Williamsburg, April 19, $20
Lots of synths are what you’ll find Thursday at the Music Hall of Williamsburg. Headlined by the analog sounds of Com Truise, the night’s excellent lineup also features Black Moth Super Rainbow side project Tobacco, and moody Brooklyn trio Selebrities, best described by their own Tumblr as “voguish summertime goth.”
Thursday, April 19, 8 p.m. Music Hall of Williamsburg, 66 North 6th Street (between Kent and Wythe avenues); Brooklyn; 718-486-5400.
Washed Out, Memory House, April 22, Highline Ballroom, $18
It’s heating up, and sky high A/C bills are just around the corner. Here’s a pre-summer opportunity to cool off with chillwave mainstay Ernest Green (aka Washed Out), still fresh off last year’s excellent Within and Without. Opening is gauzy Portland duo Memoryhouse, with their similarly laid-back vibes.
Sunday, April 22, 7 p.m. The Highline Ballroom, 431 West 16th Street (between 9th and 10th avenues); 212-414-5994.
