What’s going on Saturday?
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight’s shows, but here are some highlights…
Noname, Elton Aura @ Brooklyn Steel
Noname pulled from jazz and spoken word to make one of the best rap albums of 2018, Room 25, and now she’s supporting the album on tour. As good as the album is, her live show (with an ace band) is a whole different beast, the kind of thing you really have to see for yourself to fully experience. The tour hits Brooklyn Steel for sold-out shows tonight and tomorrow.
Pylon Reenactment Society, Thick, KAG of Priests @ Market Hotel
Athens, GA post-punk icons Pylon are no more, but the group’s singer, Vanessa Briscoe Hay keeps the torch lit with PRS that features some of Athens’ current crop of indie musicians doing great versions of “Beep!,” “Cool,” “Crazy” and more. Tonight also features riff rockers Thick, and Priests’ Katie Alice Greer in solo mode.
Spiritual Cramp, DAME, Muscle Before Paradise @ Saint Vitus
Having just opened for Mystic 100s (fka Milk Music) and Hank Wood and the Hammerheads at Brooklyn Bazaar yesterday, San Francisco punks Spiritual Cramp are hanging around Brooklyn for a headlining show at Vitus tonight.
Murphy’s Law, Sick Shit, E.D.S., Prospect, Brute @ House of Independents
NYHC vets Murphy’s Law finally returned to the stage with a hometown Halloween show after Jimmy G recovered from surgery, and now they’re playing a show just outside of their hometown in Asbury Park tonight.
William Fitzsimmons, Brendan James, Peter More, Rose Cousins @ The Loft at City Winery
Folk singer William Fitzsimmons returned in September with the new album Mission Bell, and he’s now on the second leg of his North American tour in support of it. The tour hits NYC for a sold-out show tonight.
Innov Gnawa, Banda Magda @ Rockwood Music Hall
Brooklyn Gnawa music group Innov Gnawa have gotten some recognition within the world of Western pop music thanks to their live and in-studio collaborations with UK electronic musician Bonobo, but they’re a great band in their own right and any chance to see them is worth taking.
Winter Jazzfest kicks into high gear today with a Half Marathon, featuring shows at West Village clubs Le Poisson Rouge, The Bitter End, Zinc Bar, Subculture, and more, and artists such as Meshell Ndegeocello, Kiran Ahluwalia Band, Pedrito Martinez and much more.
