What’s going on Friday?
It’s Memorial Day Weekend and you can check out our guide to all the shows going on this holiday weekend. You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight’s shows, but here are some highlights…
Nobunny, Macula Dog @ Elsewhere Roof
Elsewhere’s rooftop is finally open and they’ve decided to break it in quickly with rauccous, skuzzy bubblegum garage act Nobunny and quirky electronic quartet Macula Dog. There’s also a pop-up eatery with Mission Chinese (who are opening a restaurant next door to Elsewhere).
Decor, Outside World, Conduit, Pill @ H0L0
Warped Brooklyn pop trio Outside World celebrate the release of their new album at this show that features a lot of skronk, not the least of which from sax-fueled combo, Pill.
Christina Schneider’s Locate S,1, TEEN, Potted Plant @ Secret Project Robot
Christina Schneider’s been making music under a few different monikers but for her latest Locate S,1 she got Of Montreal’s Kevin Barnes to produce. (Listen below.) She’ll celebrate the release with this show also featuring TEEN (who haven’t played in a while).
Deeper, Patio, Gift Wrap @ Union Pool
Chicago band Deeper make melty-sounding guitar pop that is like a brighter version of what Preoccupations do (or Montreal’s Corridor if you know them). This is the record release show for their debut album.
Alan Licht, Rob Noyes @ Wonders of Nature
If you’re looking for more of a low-key hang, Williamsburg’s Worlds of Wonder hosts guitarist, composer and ontime SPIN writer Alan Licht who weaves sonic tapesties through loop pedals and other electronics. He’s paired with fellow guitar experimentalist Rob Noyes.
Leikeli47, Kris Kasanova, Quay Dash @ Baby’s All Right
Brooklyn rapper Leikeli47 is instantly recognizable, partially because she never performs without a mask on, but her music is no gimmick. Leikeli’s 2017 album Wash & Set is jam-packed with genre-defying bangers, and they’re just as (or even more) fun live.
Mount Kimbie, Wiki @ Brooklyn Steel
UK electronic duo Mount Kimbie have a live show that appeals to both fans of dance music and live bands alike, and they’re bringing that show back around North America right now in continued support of last year’s Love What Survives. The current leg of the tour has killer support from NYC rapper Wiki, whose excellent solo album No Mountains In Manhattan was one of last year’s best.
Satyricon, Goatwhore @ Gramercy Theatre
Norwegian black metal vets Satyricon are touring behind their ninth album, 2017’s Deep Calleth Upon Deep, and they are saying this current run will be their final US headlining tour (they aren’t breaking up though). The whole tour has quality support from New Orleans blackened death metallers Goatwhore, who released Vengeful Ascension last year.
Ufomammut, White Hills, It’s Not Night: It’s Space @ Saint Vitus
Italy’s Ufomammut make an awesome mix of psychedelia and sludge metal, as most recently evidenced on 2017’s 8. They’re on a tour surrounding MDF with another loud psych band, NYC’s White Hills.
Crumb, Combo Chimbita, Caleb Giles @ Elsewhere
This is a cool bill all around with three NYC acts: jazzy pop band Crumb, cumbia/psych/etc band Combo Chimbita, and avant-rapper Caleb Giles.
Regenerative Feedback @ Issue Project Room
Issue Project room presents this three-day symposium of talks, presentations, discourse, and performances centered around biological, social, political and cognitive negotiations in music. Performances include including Colin Self, Sukhdev Sandhu and more.
