You might be too young to remember (or too old to care about) Brian Eno’s No New York. But maybe you heard about it from a friend, found it at a yard sale or on eBay, paid next to nothing (or way too much), and were so happy when you put it on for the first time because it was worth every one of those 50 to 4,000 pennies. If not, you’re missing out: The 1978 comp is a snapshot of the most exciting music of the Big Apple’s no-wave underground. Twenty-five years on, out came last year’s Yes New York, a broader swipe at more current, watered-down NYC sounds. As its title implies, the record is the antithesis of its predecessor. The third track belongs to the Rogers Sisters, a capable sort of garagey trio from Brooklyn. Accept the times we’re living in when the Sisters play with the Fever at 9 p.m. on the Black Cat’s Backstage, 1811 14th St. NW. $7. (202) 667-7960. (Mike Kanin)
