Indie music aficionados might feel a bit torn tonight between the Bright Eyes show tonight and the release party for The Believer’s hotly anticipated music issue. But like any good iPhone-toting, multitasking New Yorker, why not try and do both? Put out by McSweeney’s, The Believer’s music issue is the thinking hipster’s Rolling Stone filled with artful nonfiction stories for the kind of people who like to go to bars and debate set lists. Tonight’s party at Public Assembly features live performances by musicians in the issue, including Tristan Perich, Nadia Serota, Ted Hearne, Jozef Van Wissem, Jacob Cooper, and William Britelle, as well as a conversation with Pitchfork editor Brandon Stosuy. If you’ve got opinions on music, this is the party for you. Plus, proceeds benefit the 826NYC nonprofit and you get a free mag—so if you have nothing to debate now you will next time.
