The Decemberists play a couple of gigs to show off their shiny new album, White Lies performs at Highline Ballroom, Peter Bjorn and John throw a late-night throw-down at The Rock Shop, and Real Estate sidles up to Andy Rourke of The Smiths at Union Hall — my list this week’s not-to-be missed indie shows.

Who: Suuns, Takka Takka, Milagres @:The Rock Shop, 8:00 PM Tickets: $10 Details: Secretly Canadian’s Suuns play electronica/shoegaze alongside Takka Takka’s gorgeous, melodic indie rock. Highly recommend the show—either band could be headlining, so don’t be late.

Who: White Lies, Asobi Seksu @: Highline Ballroom, 7:00 PM Tickets: $20 advance, $22 door Details: White Lies, an indie trio that sounds like Tears for Fears and Echo & the Bunnymen, has been making all sort of toplists in London since 2009.
