You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight’s shows, but here are some highlights…
She-Devils @ Baby’s All Right
Having just opened last night for Majical Clouds, fellow Montreal duo She-Devils (whose music is sample based, but not exactly dancepop) play their own show tonight. It’s billed as “She-Devils and Friends” so who knows who’ll show up. It’s a free show. In the meantime, head below to check out their brand new video for “Where There’s No One” from their debut EP.
Cousin Stizz, Saba, ZelooperZ, Big Leano @ Rough Trade
Boston rapper Cousin Stizz deservedly picked up some buzz for his 2015 debut mixtape, Suffolk County, a very cohesive collection of laid-back trap.
Margo Price, The National Reserve @ Union Pool
Third Man-signed country singer Margo Price certainly honors her genre’s time-tested traditions and sometimes sounds right out of the mid-’60s, but she finds subtle ways to sneak in modern sounds too. Her upcoming album is looking very promising
Scully, White Pisces, MPHO @ Berlin
A nice lineup of local bands — garage pop band Scully, riffmongers White Pisces, and synthpop outfit MPHO — are playing Jesse Malin’s new underground grotto rock club. $5 at the door.
Antibalas, Miguel Zenon, Binky Griptite, Holy Forest, DJ Boogaloo @ Brooklyn Bowl
Antibalas’ monthly residency continues tonight with special guests Binky Griptite, saxophonist Miguel Zenón, and Holy Forest is a new musical project from songwriter and documentary filmmaker Jon Fine.
Syd Straw @ HiFi
A talented singer-songwriter with deep roots in the NYC scene (she sang on the Golden Palominos’ Visions of Excess), Syd Straw is probably best known for her terrific 1989 solo debut, Surprise. She’s a great storyteller too, and a chance to see her in a very intimate setting such as this shouldn’t be missed.
