Tips For Today: Man Man in NYC, A$AP Rocky in London, Penguin Prison in Chicago + LMFAO in L.A.

New York:

Man Man at Brooklyn Bowl

Philly freakazoids Man Man bring their stomping, fever-dream ruckus (and instruments ranging from shakers and bowls of water to Furbys) to Brooklyn Bowl tonight. Better yet, the show is free with RSVP. [BrooklynBowl]

Jimmy Cliff at Prospect Park Bandshell
The reggae icon kicks off Celebrate Brooklyn's outdoor summer concerts at Prospect Park Bandshell with a free concert. Cliff's got an EP out featuring covers of the Clash's "Guns of Brixton" and Rancid's "Ruby Soho" (!), so fingers crossed for his renditions of those jams tonight in addition, of course, to his hits including "The Harder They Come" and "You Can Get It If You Really Want It."

In celebration of trade fair Book Expo America's New York Book Week, DUMBO's powerHouse Arena is celebrating the neighborhood's presence in the NYC lit world via a night of readings from DUMBO publishers  including n + 1, Verso Books, Melville House, and Cave Canem.

LMFAO at the Staples Center
Put 5 to10 drinks in anyone and suddenly "Party Rock Anthem" and "Sexy and I know It" are not so bad, which means they were good all along. We said it! [LAWeekly]

Penguin Prison + Class Actress at Logan Hall

Chicago Underground Film Festival Shorts: The Dead Talk Back
Given our nation's recent mania over cannibalism, zombies and generally upsetting  bath-salts-induced crimes, tonight's Chicago Underground Film Festival shorts program on death, dying, and the dead seems darkly appropriate. [ChicagoReader]

A$AP Rocky at Electric Ballroom
A$AP Rocky is one of hip-hop's must buzzed about rappers at the moment (he recently signed to Sony for a bananas $3 million) and you can expect a few tracks tonight form the Harlem rapper's much-anticipated new album
LongLiveAsap. [TimeOut]

Cypress Hill
Rap vets Cypress Hill are playing a one-off U.K. show tonight and will likely play tons of jams from their weed-scented 20+ career, including "Hits From the Bong" and "I Want to Get High." You now what to do before you go.  [TimeOut]
