What’s going on Monday?
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight’s shows, but here are some highlights…
Phil Collins @ Madison Square Garden
Phil Collins is best known for his ’80s heyday as one of the biggest hitmakers in pop, and some all-time classic singles (“In the Air Tonight,” “I Don’t Care Anymore,” “Against All Odds”), but he’s also played drums on records by Brian Eno, John Cale, and of course those early Genesis albums. He’s a legend.
Rich Brian, AUGUST 08, Don Krez @ Terminal 5
Indonesian rapper Rich Brian released his very fun sophomore LP The Sailor this past summer, and he’ll stop by Terminal 5 tonight, accompanied by 88rising labelmates AUGUST 08 and Don Krez. Brian’s shows are typically crazy, so expect some fan favorites like “Dat Stick,” “Yellow,” and lots more.
Madonna @ BAM: Brooklyn Academy of Music
Madonna’s Madame X tour continues its 17-show run at BAM, which are some of the most intimate shows of her career. The show is heavy on her new album but it’s a rare chance to get up close and personal with Madge.
Bombay Bicycle Club, The Greeting Committee @ Brooklyn Steel
UK indie pop band Bombay Bicycle Club are back after a brief hiatus, and they’ll play their first of two nights at Brooklyn Steel behind their forthcoming LP Everything Else Has Gone Wrong, which drops in January.
Butterboy Comedy @ Littlefield
Jo Firestone and Maeve Higgins are hosting tonight’s Butterboy Comedy show, which features guests Chris Redd (Saturday Night Live), Myq Kaplan (Conan, Letterman, @Midnight), Marie Faustin (Vice Live, Montreal Comedy Festival), Stavros Halkias (Comedy Central Stand-up, NY Comedy Festival), Emily Winter (SF Sketchfest, NPR’s Ask Me Another), and Randall Otis (The Daily Show).
Black Thought @ National Sawdust
The Roots’ Black Thought heads to National Sawdust tonight, kicking off a four-night multimedia show run at the venue, where he’ll “explore various concepts, people, and creative works central to his identity through a curated set of performers, spanning a wide range of styles.” Tonight’s theme is ‘The Art of the News,’ which “will explore the impact of the news cycle culture.”
Sarah Davachi, Matchess @ The Sultan Room
Composer/ambient musician Sarah Davachi has had a fairly busy 2019, as she dropped her latest LP Pale Bloom earlier this year, along with a collaborative album with fellow composer Ariel Kalma, and had her music featured in the new Jonathan Davies film Topology of Sirens. Here’s hoping she’ll perform cuts from all three tonight.
