What’s going on Monday?
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight’s shows, but here are some highlights…
Nada Surf (acoustic) @ City Winery (two shows)
Nada Surf just released their new album, You Know Who You Are. There aren’t many surprises on it, but it’s full of great Nada Surf songs. They play two acoustic shows tonight, and a full-band show at Bowery Ballroom tomorrow. They’ll also be back in September for more.
Jennifer O’Connor, Amy Bezunartea @ Mercury Lounge
Jennifer O’Connor’s new album Surface Noise is another winner. It’s a hushed, deeply intimate record that sounds great listening alone with headphone. Jennifer’s sure to sound great live tonight too.
RNDM, Parker Gispert @ Gramercy Theatre
While Pearl Jam have a massive tour coming up, bassist Jeff Ament is first playing some much smaller venues with his side project RNDM. The band’s rounded out by singer/songwriter Joseph Arthur and Seattle scene mainstay Richard Stuverud.
LNZNDRF @ Greene Space
The Devendorf brothers from The National are taking some time away from their main band to make experimental music with Ben Lanz (who’s also collaborated with The National), and they’ve given it the clever name of LNZNDRF. Their debut album is out now on 4AD, and they finish their NYC celebration of it with this third of three shows.
Blanck Mass, DJ Gavin Russom @ Baby’s All Right
Blanck Mass (aka Fuck Buttons member Benjamin John Power) released the noisy, industrial-inspired Dumb Flesh LP last year, and quickly followed it with an EP that featured some remixes from that album and new material.
Le Butcherettes, The Dead Ships, Eureka the Butcher @ Studio at Webster Hall
Mexican garage rockers Le Butcherettes are touring in support of their ripping 2015 album A Raw Youth, which came out on Faith No More frontman Mike Patton’s Ipecac label. Tonight’s their first of two NYC shows.
Killswitch Engage, Candiria @ Bowery Ballroom
Polished metalcore band Killswitch Engage are in the midst of playing five intimate NYC shows. If you’re going to tonight’s sold-out show, it’s worth showing up early for genre-bending Brooklyn veterans Candiria.
Leon Bridges @ Beacon Theater
Looking and sounding like he was transported straight from 1961, Leon Bridges has made a helluva “classic” R&B style record with Coming Home, his debut album.
Hinds @ Rough Trade
Having sold out Bowery Ballroom later in the week, Spanish garage-pop band Hinds play this free, all-ages show at Rough Trade. Chances of this being packed are high, arrive early.
Drive-By Truckers @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Alt-country band Drive-By Truckers recently released a live record, the triple-disc It’s Great to Be Alive!, and are currently working on a new studio album. Get rowdy tonight.
Night Train Hosted by Wyatt Cenac @ Littlefield
Tonight Wyatt Cenac welcomes Michelle Buteau, Mike Lawrence, Langston Kerman, Neel Nanda, and more TBA.
