You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight’s shows, but here are some highlights…
Chance the Rapper, Hiatus Kaiyote, D.R.A.M., Towkio Metro Boomin @ Terminal 5
Chance the Rapper continues to do weird things (like follow his breakthrough mixtape by making an album with a band that often isn’t rap), and people continue to love him for it. Tonight’s his second of two big sold-out Terminal 5 shows.
They Might Be Giants @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
They Might be Giants are continuing their monthly residency at Brooklyn’s Music Hall of Williamsburg and this month’s theme is “Horntober” so expect trumpets, tubas, trombones and maybe even a sousaphone?
NOTS, New Oldies Club, Scully @ The Acheron
This is the final event of the “Tuff Weekend” fest that specializes in garage punk and power pop (and jeans jackets). Tonight offers a second chance to see Memphis synthpunks NOTS, plus Brooklyn’s Scully.
Stephen O’Malley, Reg Bloor, Andrew Hock @ National Sawdust
Drone metal greats Sunn O))) are putting a new album out this December, but in the meantime band member Stephen O’Malley is playing this show at new Williamsburg venue National Sawdust. It’s a good bill all around with Glenn Branca Ensemble guitarist Reg Bloor and Andrew Hock, who used to play in Castevet and now plays in Psalm Zero.
Acid King, Kings Destroy, Sanhedrin @ Saint Vitus
If you dig stoner rock, there’s a good chance you’re familiar with Acid King. They were gone for a while, but they’re currently on their first full US tour since 2006 and they released their first album in a decade this year, which has them sounding badass as ever.
Martin Bisi w/ Bob Bert & friends, Wharton Tiers, Um @ Bowery Electric
Martin Bisi has a longtime relationship with Bob Bert, having produced some of Sonic Youth’s stuff while Bob was still a member of that band. Wharton also produced some Bob Bert-era SY, and Um include members of Alice Donut and Mustafina.
John Davis and the Cicadas, Brice Randall Bickford @ Cake Shop
This is the John Davis of Sebadoh and The Mountain Goats and not the John Davis of Korn. He makes folky pop on his own.
