What’s going on Saturday?
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight’s shows, but here are some highlights…
Jennifer Castle, Wilder Maker, Jenny Berkel @ Baby’s All Right
Toronto folky singer/songwriter Jennifer Castle recently released Angels of Death, her first album for Paradise of Bachelors, and she’s now on tour with a seven-piece band.
Mac DeMarco, Juan Wauters @ Central Park SummerStage
His clown prince side may be what people remember, but Mac DeMarco is both a talented songwriter and guitarist, which is pretty evident when he’s not belching, dropping trou or stage diving. All of which we enjoy too, mind you.
Jamiroquai @ Forest Hills Stadium
Space cowboy Jay Kay is bringing his didgeridoo, extensive hat collection, and super-tight funky live band to Forest Hills tonight.
2 Chainz, Princess Nokia, Tierra Whack, A.CHAL, Jack Harlow, Melii, Ted Park @ Genius
Lyrics website Genius is throwing this concert and BBQ at their Brooklyn headquarters, and the lineup is stacked. 2 Chainz is headlining, and the bill also includes two of the finest rising rappers around, Princess Nokia and Tierra Whack.
OctFest @ Governors Island
Pitchfork’s celebration of music and craft beer kicks off its 2018 edition with a disparate mix of performers including Vince Staples, Jeff Tweedy, Saba, Preoccupations, Standing on the Corner, Hatchie, Flasher and more.
Ozzy Osbourne, Stone Sour @ Jones Beach
Black Sabbath recently went on what they said would be their final tour, and now Ozzy is doing the same for his solo career. He has dates scheduled through 2019, so it’s not clear yet when his very last show will be, but catch the Ozzman while you still can. He brings the hits and his voice has been in great shape lately.
Bushwig @ Knockdown Center
“Earth’s favorite queer festival returns to the Knockdown Center for 23 hours of over 160 performers and non-stop drag, live music and DJ sets from legendary and rising children of New York and the world!”
Ava Luna, L’Rain, Katie Von Schleicher @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Brooklyn’s Ava Luna just released their fun, catchy and danceable new album Moon 2 and celebrate tonight.
No Fun At All, The Drowns @ Saint Vitus Bar
Swedish skate punk vets No Fun At all returned this year with Grit, their first album since 2008 (and first since reuniting again in 2013), and now they’re on their first North American tour in years.
Strung Out, MakeWar, After the Fall, The Young Rochelles @ Brooklyn Bazaar
Speaking of veteran skate punk, Strung Out are on the road after releasing an acoustic EP earlier this year.
Bodega, The Gotobeds, Savak @ The Bell House
This show, part of The Bell House’s 10th Anniversary celebration, was supposed to be headlined by Hot Snakes, but they had to drop off suddenly. Sad new, but the show is now free and includes Bodega which is a pretty sweet triple bill.
Lydia Lunch, Weasel Walter, Tim Dahl @ The Safari Room at El Cortez
Lydia Lunch and Weasel Walter are performing together as Brutal Measures tonight, which they describe as a “longform composition featuring tense spoken word versus manic free drumming outbursts, glued together by cryptic electronics.”
Deaf Wish, Unholy 2, Honey @ Union Pool
Australia’s Deaf Wish are well named — they play at a volume you can feel in your toes. They’re over her in support of their new LP on Sub Pop.
Back to School Jam w/ Power Trip, Buried Alive, Folly, Indecision, Death Threat, Red Death, Fiddlehead, Nosebleed, Magnitude, Antagonize, Incendiary, Year Of The Knife, Billy Club Sandwich, Mindforce, Hangman, World Demise, Outburst @ White Eagle Hall
School is back in session and that means annual NJ hardcore fest Back to School Jam is here. This year it happens at White Eagle Hall in Jersey City, and it’s got a stacked lineup headlined by modern thrash greats Power Trip and featuring a killer mix of newcomers and veterans.
Cheval Sombre, War Violet, Pioneers @ Wonders of Nature
Cheval Sombre (aka Chris Porpora) has a new record with Luna’s Dean Wareham on the way, but here plays solo.
A Celebration for Slim Dunlap of the Replacements @ Bowery Electric
Replacements guitarist Slim Dunlap suffered a severe stroke in 2012, and tonight’s benefit show features The Figgs, Split Squad and more.
Lost Balloons, Pale Angels @ WFMU Monty Hall
Lost Balloons, the duo of Jeff Burke (The Marked Men/Radioactivity) and Yusuke Okada (Suspicious Beasts), rip it up tonight in Jersey City
Sumac, Dalek, Lussuria @ National Sawdust
Isis frontman Aaron Turner’s current band Sumac have an anticipated new album on the way, and they’ll presumably be playing some music from it tonight. Direct support comes from reunited industrial rap group Dalek.
toe, Jack Grace @ Warsaw
Japanese post/math rockers Toe recently released their new EP, Our Latest Number, and they’re now supporting it on a North American tour.
