What’s going on Friday?
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight’s shows, but here are some highlights…
Jack White, The Nude Party @ Kings Theatre
Jack White returned this year with his new solo album Boarding House Reach, and though it’s been his most divisive solo album yet, the new songs really come to life at his shows, which have been killer all year. After headlining many festivals this past summer, he plays smaller theater shows on this tour, including Brooklyn’s Kings Theatre tonight and tomorrow.
Runemagick, Evoken, Encoffination @ Brooklyn Bazaar
Swedish death/doom vets Runemagick returned this year with the very good Evoked From Abysmal Sleep, their first album in 11 years. The band are now set to play the U.S. for the first time in their 25+ career at this exclusive NYC one-off. There’s also great, well-matched support from NJ’s Evoken (who recently released their solid new album Hypnagogia and who are playing their first NY show in “3-4 years” tonight) and Encoffination.
Gucci Mane, Smokepurpp, Hoodrich Pablo Juan, Asian Doll @ Avant Gardener
Atlanta trap OG Gucci Mane is gearing up to release his new album Evil Genius in December, but first he’s on tour and hitting Brooklyn tonight. Opening this show is Gucci’s rising signee Asian Doll, who joined him on stage at NYC’s Panorama earlier this year.
The Dodos, Wild Pink @ Bowery Ballroom
Indie popsters The Dodos returned this year with the enjoyable new album Certainty Waves on Polyvinyl, and they’re currently touring with rising heartland indie rockers Wild Pink, who make for a great pairing.
Suffocation, Cattle Decapitation, Krisiun, Visceral Disgorge @ Gramercy Theatre
Long Island death metal vets Suffocation are currently on their last tour with original vocalist Frank Mullen, and there’s killer direct support from the likeminded Cattle Decapitation, who are finally releasing their long-awaited rarities compilation this month.
Matthew Dear @ National Sawdust
Hard-to-pigeonhole electronic artist Matthew Dear recently released Bunny, his first album in six years. He celebrates tonight with what is likely to be a memorable, visually interesting show.
Wild Nothing, Men I Trust @ Brooklyn Steel
On his new Wild Nothing album, Indigo, Jack Tatum returns to the jangly, danceable, ’80s-influenced sound of his first couple records, after exploring other sonic territory. He’s well matched with Canadian act Men I Trust who are worth getting their early to see.
Darkest Hour, Damnation A.D., Cemetery Piss, Walk The Plank, NØ MAN @ The Kingsland
Metalcore vets Darkest Hour headline this five-band bill, and it’s worth getting to this one early to see NØ MAN, the new band with all three members of Majority Rule and Maha Shami.
Paint (Pedrum Siadatian of the Allah-Las), Reverberation Radio @ Berlin
Allah-Las guitarist Pedrum Siadatian just released a solo album as Paint, which recalls a whole host of talented musicians who’ve explored the interiors of their psyches, from Syd Barrett and Donovan to Arthur Lee and Julian Cope.
Thalia Zedek Band, Damon & Naomi @ Union Pool
A vet of the ’80s/’80s NYC punk and indie rock scene (Come, Live Skull), Thalia Zedek plays this TZB show in support of new album Fighting Season. Opening are Damon & Naomi who, despite having made music under this guise for 25 years, are still known to some as the 2/3rds of Galaxie 500 that aren’t Dean Wareham.
Sarah Davachi, M. Geddes Gengras @ The Park Church Co-Op
Composer and ambient artist Sarah Davachi brings her tour behind this year’s Gave In Rest (Ba Da Bing) to the gorgeous Park Church Co-Op tonight.
“A Superego Thanksgiving” w/ Paul F. Tompkins, Mark McConville, Jeremy Carter, Matt Gourley @ The Bell House (2 shows)
Comedian Paul F. Tompkins, who you may know as the voice of Mr Peanutbutter on Bojack Horseman, will be spending the weekend at The Bell House taping various podcasts. Tonight it’s two shows as part of sketch troupe and clinical researchers Superego.
Springsteen on Broadway
The Boss continues his sold-out “Springsteen on Broadway” run at the Walter Kerr Theatre, which runs through December. At these shows, Bruce is giving fans shows “that are as personal and as intimate as possible.”
