For bigger shows, tonight is full of conflicts.
Spiritualized are performing Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space live in its entirety with orchestra and choir. The show is the final SPIN/ZYNC thing this week and will be streaming online. Tickets are still on sale.
Seu Jorge headlines Terminal 5 tonight now that SPIN has vacated and moved to Radio City.
The Swell Season have headlined Radio City Music Hall twice. Tonight they play a free show in Prospect Park with the Low Anthem.
Big weekend for Prospect Park. Sonic Youth play the free show on Saturday.
Chad VanGaalen should probably be headlining the free show at South Street Seaport today, but Avi Buffalo is.
Catch Jim James in an intimate setting, tonight at Music Hall of Williamsburg.
The Big Takeover Fest kicks off.
The Gories return too.
