Chairlift, Real Estate, Cloud Nothings, & More Great NYC Concerts This Week

3CONCERTS
Chairlift, Violens, Dive, January 23, Bowey Ballroom, $15
With their new album, "Something", Chairlift has set a career high water mark filled with massive buzzing synths and deceptively catchy arrangements. Live, Caroline Polacheck and Patrick Wimberly amp up their recordings with even more energy. Even in big venues like the Bowery Ballroom, Chairlift never fails to command the room.
Monday, January 23, 7:30 p.m., Bowery Ballroom, 6 Delancey Street (between Bowery and Chrystie Street); 212-533-2111.
Cloud Nothings, Bleedying Rainbow, Jump Into The Gospel, January 26, The Studio at Webster Hall, $10
With the aid of legendary producer Steve Albini, Cloud Nothings have darkened their sound and upped their wattage. Following the recording of Attack on Memory, their live show, too, has evolved. While frontman Dylan Baldi is still the driving creative force behind the project, the Cloud Nothings have united as one of the best new(ish) live bands around.
Thursday, January 26, 8 p.m., Webster Hall, 125 East 11th Street (between 3rd and 4th avenues); 212-353-1600.

Real Estate, Black Dice, The Babies, Dogleather, Oneohtrix Point Never (DJ Set), Ducktails (DJ Set), January K&K Super Buffet, $5
An awesome (albeit slightly oddball) lineup of amazing Brooklyn bands all playing in a Queens Chinese restaurant. Why not? We can’t recommend the food, but noise geniuses Black Dice and lackadaisical Jersey Rockers Real Estate should be enough to satisfy your appetite.
Saturday, January 28, 9 p.m., K&K Super Buffet, 1378 Palmetto Street, Ridgewood, Queens
