What’s going on Friday?
We’re in the middle of Fourth of July Weekend — check out our guide to shows and events through Sunday and you can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight’s shows, but here are some highlights…
Wand, Dreamdecay, Jobs @ Elsewhere Rooftop
With their new album Laughing Matter, Wand left the garage behind and head to the stratosphere on this sprawling, personal gamechanger of a record. As great as the new album is, Wand are even better live and should sound great as the sun sets behind them on Elsewhere’s roof.
Mick Jenkins, Leikeli47, Leven Kali, Joy Postell @ Prospect Park Bandshell
The free BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival shows continue Fourth of July Weekend with two great hip hop shows. This is the first, with two artists who made our Best Rap Albums of 2018 list: Mick with the jazz-rap of Pieces of a Man and Leikeli with the genre-defying art rap of Acrylic.
Stardust VII: Vado Mori day two w/ Dead Congregation, The Ruins of Beverast, Evoken, Fetid, Siege Column, Daeva, Dreadlords, Dumal, Witch Vomit, Basilysk, Massive Retaliation, Windfaerer @ Brooklyn Bazaar
The seventh installment of the Stardust metal festival wraps up today with an even more stacked lineup than day one, featuring Greek death metallers Dead Congregation, German black metallers The Ruins of Beverast, NJ funeral doomers Evoken, and much more.
Kelly Lee Owens (DJ set) @ Elsewhere Hall
If you wanna keep the party going at Elsewhere, the great Kelly Lee Owens will be spinning in the venue’s main hall (she also plays as part of MoMA PS1 Warm-Up on Saturday).
Roni Size @ Sunnyvale
Drum’n’bass icon Roni Size, whose debut album New Form was a game changer in dance music, kicks off his short North American tour tonight.
SubZero, Ramallah, No Redeeming Social Value, Killer of Sheep, Silence Equals Death @ Saint Vitus
This is a stacked hardcore show all around, headlined by NYHC vets SubZero, who say this is “the ONLY Subzero show for the rest of 2019 and who knows how long after.” The bill also includes fellow NYHC vets No Redeeming Social Value, Boston’s Ramallah (ex-Blood For Blood), Killer of Sheep (ex-Battered Citizens), and newer NJHC band Silence Equals Death who take a lot of influence from the era of hardcore that the more veteran hc bands on the bill hail from.
Stranger Things @ Deno’s Wonder Wheel Amusement Park
To promote the third season of Stranger Things, the show has invaded Coney Island’s Deno’s Wonder Wheel Amusement Park, with themed takeovers of some of the rides, including the Thunderbolt, Tilt-a-Whirl, Bumper Cars, Carousel, and Wonder Wheel itself, as well as Scoop’s Ahoy push carts selling treats. You can catch it through July 7 from noon – 6 PM.
