Nine Inch Nails in Japan in February (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight’s shows, but here are some highlights…
Nine Inch Nails, Soundgarden, Oneohtrix Point Never @ Susquehanna Bank Center
Relive 1994 with two of alternative rock’s biggest bands who both put out seminal albums on the same day that year. Cool openers on this tour too. Tonight it’s ambient electronics wiz Oneohtrix Point Never.
Jagwar Ma, Cities Aviv @ Webster Hall
With a debut album that owes more than a little to the early-’90s Madchester rave scene, Jagwar Ma will be twistin’ your mellon (man) with sunshine vibes to spare.
Eric Copeland (of Black Dice), DJ Dog Dick, King Concubine, Fluct, Robot Death Cult, Kneeling, Alaina Stamatis, Prince Rama @ The Ho_se
This is night four of the high-concept, six-Brooklyn-venues-in-six-nights “Bushwick Small World Tour” headlined by the Black Dice frontman.
Free Pizza, Flower Girl, Hippy, Milk Dick @ Death by Audio
We’ve all joked about calling a band this but Boston’s Free Pizza have gone and done it. Expect catchy/shambly indie rock. If you want a slice, call delivery.
Forro in the Dark, Debo Band @ Madison Square Park
Madison Square Park’s “Oval Lawn Series” continues tonight with collaborators Forro in the Dark and Debo Band.
GOASTT (Ghost of a Sabre Tooth Tiger), Nymph @ McCarren Park (Summerscreen)
The free Summerscreen series continues in McCarren Park tonight with a screening of cult coming-of-age black comedy Heathers at sundown, and before that music from Sean Lennon’s band GOASTT (who keep the Revolver-era psych of his father’s band alive) and Nymph.
Jesse Malin, Kevin Kinney, Anthony D’Amato @ Bowery Electric
D Generation’s Jesse Malin isn’t just Bowery Electric’s owner, he’s also an occasional performer. Like tonight, with Drivin’ N Cryin’s Kevin Kinney.
Sasheer Zamata, Bob Powers, Maris Kreizman, Choire Sicha, James Bewley (aka Dale Seever) @ Union Hall
Recent transplants to NYC might want to check out this show that brings together a such folks as SNL’s Sasheer Zamata, Gawker/Awl editor Choire Sicha, and other successful, creative folks to answer “How I Learned to Live in New York.”
The Big Terrific Comedy Show @ Cameo Gallery
Max Silvestri hosts the free weekly comedy show in the back of Williamsburg’s Lovin’ Cup. No word on who’s performing tonight, but Max usually lets us know via his Twitter.
