What’s going on Monday?
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight’s shows, but here are some highlights…
Bjork “Cornucopia” @ The Shed
Anticipation is high for Bjork’s “Cornucopia” at fancy new music/art space The Shed, which is being promoted as her “most elaborately staged concert to date,” created with a large team of theatrical and visual collaborators. Tonight’s show is a preview, with the formal run starting later this week.
Black Label Society, Conan, The Atomic Bitchwax @ Bowery Ballroom
While Zakk Wylde had been busy lately playing guitar for Ozzy Osbourne (who had to postpone the rest of his tour for health reasons), he’s now taking his own band Black Label Society on the road to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their 1999 debut album Sonic Brew. They’ve also lined up killer support from UK doom/sludge greats Conan and NJ stoner rock vets The Atomic Bitchwax.
Butterboy Comedy @ Littlefield
Jo Firestone, Aparna Nancherla, and Maeve Higgins are all on hand to host tonight’s Butterboy, with guests Liza Treyger (Comedy Central Half Hour, @midnight), Sean Patton (Conan, This Is Not Happening), Kerry Coddett (truTV’s Comedy Knockout), Dwayne Kennedy (Late Show with David Letterman), Eric Spera (Laughing Liberally Boston), and Shanna Christmas (World Series of Comedy).
Bodega, Feels @ Mercury Lounge
Groovy NYC post-punks Bodega seem to be constantly touring behind last year’s solid Endless Scroll, and tonight they’ll team up with LA punks Feels at Mercury Lounge, for what’s sure to be an awesome double-header.
Nickel Creek @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Chris Thile is usually busy hosting his Minnesota Public Radio show Live From Here these days, but he’s set time aside to tour with his trio Nickel Creek, including this two-night run at Music Hall of Williamsburg (this is night one).
Johnny Marr @ The Paramount
Indie and alt rock wouldn’t sound the way it does today without Johnny Marr whose distinctive playing in The Smiths is still a wonder today. He went on to play as part of many other bands — The The, Modest Mouse, The Cribs — and now is on his third solo album. He peppers his sets with Smiths songs, too, and may actually sing them better than Morrissey these days if we’re being honest.
Graham Parker @ City Winery
Former Rumour frontman Graham Parker is a rock n’ roll survivor and songwriting great who rivals Elvis Costello in wit and melody, even if he isn’t as well known in this country.
Phoebe Robinson and Friends @ Union Hall
2 Dope Queens co-host Phoebe Robinson will be hosting her recurring “Phoebe Robinson and Friends” comedy show at Union Hall tonight, with some special guests TBA.
