What’s going on Friday?
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight’s shows, but here are some highlights…
Restorations, Timeshares, Wild Pink @ Baby’s All RIght
Restorations have been working on LP4, which should see the light of day this year, but first they’re road-testing the new songs on this mini tour. Their last LP combined heartland rock, post-rock, punk, stoner rock, and more in a very awesome way, so it’ll be exciting to hear where they go next. The whole tour is with twangy punks Timeshares (who just dropped a new EP), and this show has quality local support from indie rockers Wild Pink.
Iron Reagan, Despise You, Cemetery Piss, Left Cross @ Brooklyn Bazaar
The great tongue-in-cheek crossover thrash revivalists Iron Reagan are releasing a split LP with Gatecreeper in March, but first they’re on this short tour with powerviolence greats Despise You. Tonight that awesome pairing hits NYC.
Wax Idols, Future Punx, Desert Sharks @ Elsewhere
Hether Fortune’s Wax Idols have a new album, Happy Endings, on the way which is their first written and recorded as a band, so tonight’s show should be interesting to see what direction things take.
The Killers, Alex Cameron @ MSG
The Killers’ recent albums haven’t been so hot (the new one does have a couple jams though), but Killers shows are always full of all the fan favorites and they really know how to put on a stunning performance. Making tonight’s show extra exciting is Australia’s Springsteen-meets-Nick-Cave-ish Alex Cameron (whose latest album features Killers singer Brandon Flowers).
Calpurnia @ Rough Trade
Calpurnia are mostly known as the band featuring Finn Wolfhard who plays Mike on Stranger Things, but they’re signed to Royal Mountain Records which is home to Alvvays, Mac DeMarco, PUP and Hollerado. Sold out.
OSHUN, High Class Hoodlums @ Rough Trade
Neo-soul band OSHUN are one of the best local bands in NYC right now, and they’re using this show to preview their new album bittersweet Vol 1 and celebrate the release of their new single. Should be a great time.
Dying Fetus, Replicant, Funeral Leech @ Saint Vitus
Death metal vets Dying Fetus had a busy 2017, releasing their eighth album Wrong One to Fuck With via Relapse, and opening tours for The Black Dahlia Murder and Hatebreed. Now they’re back in NYC for a small, sold-out headlining show.
Trevor Noah @ Radio City Music Hall
Best known these days as host of The Daily Show, Trevor Noah cut his teeth as an observational, empathetic standup. This is his first of two nights at Radio City.
Marc Ribot’s Ceramic Dog, Rudresh Mahanthappa’s Indo-Pak Coalition, Lakecia Benjamin and Soul Squad, Onyx Collective, Nick Hakim, Revival Resistance Chorus @ Bowery Ballroom
Winter Jazzfest continues with the stacked and packed lineup headlined by guitarist Marc Ribot who has played with Tom Wiats, Elvis Costello and more. There’s also Onyx Collective, Nick Hakim and more.
Springsteen on Broadway @ Walter Kerr Theatre
The Boss continues his completely sold-out “Springsteen on Broadway” run at the Walter Kerr Theatre, which has now been extended through June! At these shows, Bruce plans to give fans shows “that are as personal and as intimate as possible.”
