Huey Lewis

Browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows. Here are some highlights...

Huey Lewis And The News @ Seaside Summer Concerts (FREE)
While it was never really hip to be square, it does seem like a fun evening to catch Huey Lewis & The News performing their mega-platinum 1983 LP, Sports, in its entirety by the beach at Coney Island. For free. Got some extra time on your hands? Get there early and recreate the "If This is It?" video in the sand. 7:30 PM.

Nick Hook, Cakes Da Killa, H.O.M.E. Team, Flash Frequency @ 285 Kent Avenue
The most exciting part of this bill (to us at least) is NYC queer rapper Cakes Da Killa, who isn't too far removed from Mykki Blanco or Le1f. He's sure to have the place going pretty wild.

Xenia Rubinos, Rizzla @ Brooklyn Museum
Eclectic performer Xenia Rubinos released her debut album, Magic Trix, which is out now on Ba Da Bing. See her tonight as part of Brooklyn Museum's "Audiophile" concert series that is free with museum admission.

Metalleg, The Shackeltons, Detroit Rebellion, Bird To Prey @ Cake Shop
While long-running PA band The Shackletons are the best-known name on this bill, you might want to check this show out for Providence, RI duo Detroit Rebellion make loose, groovy blues a la early Beck; or perhaps Metalleg's glammy, punky powerpop. Streams of both are below.

Kid Dynamite, Joyce Manor, Red Hare, Swearin' @ House of Vans
It's the last US show for Kid Dynamite before they officially end their reunion, and that should make things as kids pile on each other to these songs for the last time. The support is great too, coming from raw pop punks Joyce Manor (who play their own Brooklyn show on Saturday), Dischord supergroup Red Hare, and emo-y lo-fi band Swearin' (who also play another show on Saturday, and have even more coming up too).

Tristan Perich, Meehan/Perkins Duo @ MoMa
The MoMA Nights series continues tonight with a show on the contemporary composer side. Regular museum admission applies.

Omar S, Big Strickt, FIT, Turtle Bugg @ Output
Omar S returned this year with an excellent full length album of deep house, Thank You for Letting Me Be Myself. Presumably, you'll be hearing some of those jams as he gets the entire place dancing all night. Stream the album's title track below.

Habibi @ Fulton Stall Market, August 2012 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
IMAGE

Habibi, Total Slacker, Grand Resort, Young Boys, Retail, Dead Young Friends @ Pianos
This is Week 1 of Grand Resort's Pianos residency, and they've put together a pretty good line-up of bands for the kickoff show. Close your eyes and you might think you were in Bushwick instead of on Ludlow St.

Har Mar Superstar, Sky White Tiger, Heloise & The Savior Faire @ The Bowery Electric
When he's not going to pretend Replacements practice, Har Mar Superstar has been playing around NYC a lot recently. Catch him tonight on this party-oriented bill at Bowery Electric.

The Phantom Family Halo, Old Baby, Catherine Irwin @ Union Pool
Psychedelic indie rockers Phantom Family Halo and Young Widows-related band Old Baby team up for a Union Pool show tonight, making for a pretty good show at a pretty small venue.

Jose James @ Pier 40
The soul singer recently opened for Shuggie Otis in Central Park and soon will be back for a Bowery Ballroom show, but tonight, you can see him in another outdoors environment on Pier 40.

Laura Jane Grace (of Against Me!), Mina Caputo, Allison Weiss @ Knitting Factory
We're still waiting on that new Against Me! album, but meanwhile singer Laura Jane Grace will be doing some celebrating on the road ahead of time playing its material acoustically. The night's especially interesting because another punk singer who famously came out as transgender, Mina Caputo (formerly Keith Caputo of Life of Agony), will be opening the show. Laura and Mina do it again tomorrow night at Bowery Ballroom too.

KRS-One @ S.O.B.'s
This Bronx hip hop legend headlines a show at SOB's tonight.

Talib Kweli (DJ set) @ Brooklyn Bowl
Questlove is taking a night off from his weekly Bowl Train DJ night at Brooklyn Bowl and letting Talib Kweli handle the boards tonight. The party starts at 11 AM.

For all of tonight's shows, and tomorrow's, check out our full NYC show calendar.

For laughs, check out the NYC Comedy calendar too.

So, first time going to House of Vans. What's the point of an RSVP if that does not guarantee admission? Anyway, what are the odds of getting in if I don't get there earlier today? Is it even worth it to show up past the start time?

Don't sleep on the KRS-ONE show. You will not see a better live emcee in your lifetime.

Line will start up around 5ish. It's a pain in the ass to get it, but they don't turn away anyone. Last time I was there, they were letting anyone in off the street with/without RSVP.

Huey was corny back then. Why would I see him now?

"Close your eyes and you might think you were in Bushwick instead of on Ludlow St."

So in other words, I'd imagine that I'm in the middle of a street with a bunch of bodegas, warehouses, and projects with Hispanics blasting Reggaeton out of their beat-up piece of shit 15 year old-Toyotas?

@1013 too black sounding?

Posted by Anonymous | August 15, 2013 12:10 PM

11:52 is absolutely correct. I was there too, and that shit was vomit-inducing then and is still now.

gonna lay out my picnic blanket, have a cooler with some refreshments, bring some sandwiches and salads, can't wait for Huey & the News, the heart of rock n roll is still beating!

FUCK KRS-One for "proudly" saying blacks cheered when 9/11 happened here:

Huey still has an amazing set of pipes and can play a mean harmonica.

You know who else has a great set of pipes? Kickball Katy, of course.

D, I actually can't argue with you on that. I like KRS, but I can't defend the stupid remarks he made that day.

Posted by Anonymous | August 15, 2013 1:59 PM

Stupid remarks he has yet to take back.

Fuck him.

1258 Totally agree. I wouldn't pay a dime to see him.

Posted by Anonymous | August 15, 2013 2:55 PM

At least KRS-One (I thought he went by 'Kris Parker' when he tries to act intelligent?) doesn't think it was a false flag incident.

Posted by xTAINTx | August 15, 2013 2:57 PM

if elvis ate hummus it would have loosened up his stool and he would not have had to strain on the bowl and he might not have died on the throne

Posted by Anonymous | August 15, 2013 3:07 PM

They say the heart of rock 'n' roll is the beat. You know what else the beat is the heart of?

Posted by Bendrix | August 15, 2013 3:38 PM

xTAINTx

"Proudly" saying black were glad 9/11 happened is 100X worse than saying it was a false flag.

Saying it's a false flag isn't trying to be mean, saying blacks were glad it happened and making it a point to say you were proud to say that is.

Hey Max - I know what you look like, so do many others. Watch your back.

Posted by D | August 15, 2013 4:23 PM

I think of KRS-One the same way I think of my angry racist uncle. I respect him for his skills and still like him, but just have to shake my head when he says something stupid.

Why is the site trying to censor the revolution against the new posting format?

Posted by Anonymous | August 15, 2013 10:19 PM

Exactly because revolution means bringing to an end the power held by the capitalist-imperialists over the lives of billions, those who hold that power will oppose it in every way they can—via direct representatives of the state and working with other "freelance" operatives. There will also be organized reactionary forces who uphold the system and are threatened by the possibility of revolutionary change—they too will actively work against revolution and revolutionary organizations. This is to be expected. Revolution will bring counter-revolution. But then there is another type of counter-revolution—people who emerge from within the camp of opposition to the present order and pose as revolutionaries, but whose sole, or essential, purpose and reason for existence is to destroy genuine revolutionary organizations and revolutionary leaders—leadership that is necessary if there is to be a revolution.

To be clear, then, counter-revolution means active opposition to revolution, with the intent to destroy the revolution, revolutionary group, or individual.

Those serious about making revolution must set and insist on standards for the revolutionary movement that favor revolution and oppose all forms of counter-revolution.

Posted by Anonymous | August 15, 2013 11:55 PM

Fuck it, this is no longer a revolution. Its a grass roots movement founded on the love of music and the taste of hummus to get the old format back.

Or atleast promote this site. They have the old list guys.

Posted by Anderson | February 14, 2014 7:46 AM

I was an infant when this album came out,my parents had it on a 33 LP record,they said I would crawl over to the tower speakers and put my ear up to them everytime this album started to hear the heartbeat of the first track,30 years later I still love it.My dad found it on CD last year and played it for me,and the memories it brought back,the next day I went and got the same CD and played the hell out of it.
