What’s going on Saturday?
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight’s shows, but here are some highlights…
Interpol, Car Seat Headrest, Snail Mail @ Madison Square Garden
It’s an all-Matador triple bill at MSG tonight, as NYC greats Interpol play a massive hometown show behind last year’s Marauder, with special guests Car Seat Headrest and Snail Mail rounding out the bill. It’s the largest headlining NYC show for Interpol to date.
Cherry Glazerr, Sneaks @ Bowery Ballroom
Cherry Glazerr are currently embarking on an East Coast tour leg supporting their recent LP Stuffed & Ready, with Washington D.C. post-punks Sneaks opening. This is Cherry Glazerr’s second NYC date this week.
Thundercat @ Blue Note (3 shows)
He’s collaborated with everyone from Flying Lotus and Kendrick Lamar to Michael McDonald and Suicidal Tendencies — the genre-defying bassist continues his Blue Note residency tonight with two shows. Tonight’s guests are Quinta B at the 8 PM and 10:30 PM shows and Zack Fox at the 12:30 AM show.
Beirut, Helado Negro @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Beirut recently began their tour behind the recently-released Gallipoli, their first album in four years, and this sold-out MHOW date marks the third NYC show of their tour.
Bush Tetras, Pill, Seedy Films @ Elsewhere Zone One
Downtown NYC no wave / post-punk icons Bush Tetras are still going strong and tonight are paired with a newer band clearly cut from the same cloth, Pill.
Deerhoof, TIGUE @ Merkin Hall (Ecstatic Music Festival)
Ecstatic Music Festival brings together collaborations from indie/pop/etc artists with artists from the modern classical/avant-garde/etc world. Tonight it’s art rockers Deerhoof who will perform their 2007 album Friend Opportunity with added new percussion from TIGUE.
Jorge Elbrecht, No Swoon, Decor @ ALPHAVILLE
Jorge used to front art-pop groups Lansing-Dreiden and Violens, and has produced records for No Joy and Tamaryn. He’s been releasing album under his own name lately and tonight’s show could lean on some theatrics.
Owen @ Rough Trade
American Football’s highly anticipated third album comes out this March, but first, frontman Mike Kinsella is taking the time to do a short tour with his solo project Owen. Owen shows are always great; looser and less predictable than American Football shows, but charming in their own way.
Magic Sword, Destryur @ Saint Vitus
Mysterious masked and cloaked synthwave trio Magic Sword are in the midst of a short tour that hits Brooklyn tonight.
Red Room Orchestra (Music From Wes Anderson Films), Margaret Cho, Hether Fortune, Dave Hill, Steven Bernstein @ Symphony Space
NYC’s Red Room Orchestra are delivering a show featuring renditions of music from Wes Anderson films, from Bottle Rocket through Isle of Dogs. Special guests for tonight’s show include comedian Margaret Cho, comedian/rocker Dave Hill, Wax Idols’ Hether Fortune, and prolific trumpeter Steven Bernstein.
The Dead Tongues, Molly Sarle @ Union Poolt
Durham, NC-based solo project The Dead Tongues (real name Ryan Gustafson) is touring behind last year’s Unsung Passage, with Mountain Man’s Molly Sarle serving as the show’s opener. She’ll be previewing new material from an upcoming solo LP.
Sun Ra Arkestra @ White Eagle Hall
Still led by the 94-year-old Marshall Allen, the Sun Ra Arkestra remain a real joy to watch.
Joe Jackson @ Town Hall
New Wave veteran Joe Jackson, who released his debut album in 1979, is in the midst of his “Four Decade Tour.”
Marah, Andrew Vladeck @ Mercury Lounge
Philly rock vets Marah play tonight as part of Mercury Lounge’s 25th Anniversary.
Kool & The Gang @ Sony Hall
Still led by Robert “Kool” Bell and Ronald Bell, Kool & The Gang have a long list of ’70s and ’80s funk/disco classics, including “Jungle Boogie,” “Ladies Night,” “Celebration,” “Get Down on It,” “Joanna” and more.
