What’s going on Monday?
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight’s shows, but here are some highlights…
Metronomy, Gordi @ Brooklyn Steel
Metronomy didn’t really tour for their 2016 album Summer 08 so it’s great to get them over here now. One of the more fun “blog haus” era bands, Metronomy have transformed with each new album, while still sounding like themselves. They’re also a seriously talented live act with a nice sense of visual flair to boot. Australian artist Gordi (not to be confused with ’90s French toddler Jordy) opens.
Kelela, Lafawndah @ Bowery Ballroom
After a very good mixtape, EP, and several notable guest appearances, R&B boundary pusher Kelela finally released her debut album, Take Me Apart, and it was worth the wait. This is her second of two consecutive Bowery Ballroom shows with her Warp labelmate Lafawndah, which is a great and well-matched opener.
Chief Keef @ Gramercy Theatre
Chief Keef has been having something a comeback year, with three full-length projects already out (including the acclaimed R&B-minded Thot Breaker) and one more coming before the end of the year.
Bully, Aye Nako @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
’90s-rock revivalists Bully left their major label home to sign to Sub Pop (a much better fit) and released their sophomore album Losing recently. If you dig Bully, you’ll probably dig openers Aye Nako too.
Julia Jacklin, Faye Webster, Aerial East @ Rough Trade
Polyvinyl-signed Australian folk singer Julia Jacklin released her debut album Don’t Let the Kids Win last year and she followed it with a new single this past September.
Tyler, The Creator, Taco @ Terminal 5
Tyler the Creator’s new album Flower Boy is generally considered his best in a while and his live shows still get pretty rowdy. This one is unsurprisingly sold out.
Iron and Wine, John Moreland @ Town Hall
Iron & Wine is back on Sub Pop for the first time since 2007’s The Shepherd’s Dog and his new album Beast Epic is his first album in his stripped-down, bare-bones folk style since his Sub Pop days too. He plays Town Hall tonight and Brooklyn Steel tomorrow, and tonight’s show is with the 4AD-signed country singer John Moreland.
King Crimson @ The Paramount
Prog rock icons King Crimson — which currently includes Robert Fripp, Jakko Jakszyk, Mel Collins, Tony Levin, Pat Mastelotto, Gavin Harrison, Jeremy Stacey, and Bill Rieflin — bring their fall tour to Long Island.
Butterboy w/ Jo Firestone, Aparna Nancherla, Maeve Higgins @ Littlefield
Tonight is the first ever edition of Butterboy, the new weekly comedy show hosted by Jo Firestone, Aparna Nancherla, and Maeve Higgins, which takes over Wyatt Cenac’s old Night Train slot at Littlefield.
Regina Spektor (solo) @ State Theatre
Regina Spektor is currently doing a solo tour, which is very special at this point in her career, especially for any longtime fans who miss her early days. She plays New Brunswick tonight.
