What’s going on Sunday? (Fuzz, Olof Arnalds, Iron Chic, Quasi, Antibalas, Wolf People, Hannibal Buress & more)
Fuzz @ DbA in June (more by Devin Councill)
Browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight’s shows. Here are some highlights…
Fuzz, CCR Headcleaner, Beech Creeps @ Death By Audio
Do you pine for the early ’70s monster riff days of Blue Cheer and prime Black Sabbath? Ty Segall does too, hence his proto-metal band Fuzz in which he sings and plays drums, heavy on the fills. Even on a Sunday, this show is sure to be nuts.
Ólöf Arnalds @ Le Poisson Rouge
Mere days after male Iclandic composer Ólafur Arnalds played LPR, we find female Icelandic folk singer Ólöf Arnalds at the same venue tonight. Yes we’re still a little confused too.
Quasi, Jeffrey Lewis @ Knitting Factory
Long-running indie duo of Sam Combes and Janet Weiss bring their organ and drums to Knitting Factory tonight, their first of two shows in NYC with tourmate Jeffrey Lewis.
Antibalas, Song Sparrow Research @ Highline Ballroom
NYC Afrobeat band Antibalas play their second of two local shows this weekend.
Wolf People, Golden Animals, The Golden Grass @ Mercury Lounge
If you’d like Tull vibes in a younger package, UK band Wolf People sound like they could be from 1973 — proggy, riffy, and the occasional wind instrument. Opening are NYC psych duo Golden Animals and power trio The Golden Grass.
Iron Chic, Rvivr, Nude Beach, Giant Peach @ The Acheron
Long Island punks Iron Chic make the kind of uplifting punk anthems that sound destined to be shouted by a club of sweaty kids with half-empty beers flying everywhere. Perhaps that will be the case tonight. Nude Beach make Replacements-y heartland pop.
Alice Cooper @ The Capitol Theatre
Before the pro-am golf tournaments, appearances on Wayne’s World and pontification on the origins of corpse paint, Alice Cooper was a ripping hard rock musician. Relive those early records and get your air guitar on.
Higgins Waterproof Black Magic Band, Leverage Models, Invisible Familiars @ Union Pool
This is the first date of HWBMB’s (side project of TV on the Radio’s Tunde Adebimpe) October residency at Union Pool which will happen every Sunday this month. Don’t miss Leverage Models if you’re going, they make Big ’80s art pop ABC and Spandau Ballet would be jealous of.
Ginger Baker @ Iridium
One of the greatest living drummers of any genre, Ginger Baker is best known as one third of Cream but is a master of many styles. His five-night run at Iridium, continues tonight with 8 PM and 10 PM shows.
Clean Teeth, Pigs, Marching Teeth @ Saint Vitus
How do you like your teeth — Marching or Clean? Tonight you don’t have to decide, they’re both playing Vitus.
Hannibal Buress @ Knitting Factory
Big league comedy talent (Chris Rock, Louis CK, etc) show up regularly (and unannounced) for Hannibal’s very popular free comedy show at Knitting Factory’s front bar. Get there early.
