What’s going on Saturday?
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight’s shows, but here are some highlights…
Sharon Van Etten, Heather Woods Broderick @ Webster Hall
Sharon Van Etten returns to NYC while touring behind this year’s superb Remind Me Tomorrow, playing the just-reopened Webster Hall with some killer support from longtime associate Heather Woods Broderick.
Hot Snakes, Mannequin Pussy, Death Cults, Yawn Mower @ White Eagle Hall
Primal punks Hot Snakes are still touring behind their great reunion LP Jericho Sirens, and tonight’s Jersey City, NJ date will be opened by Mannequin Pussy, whose new LP drops next month.
Jerry Seinfeld @ Beacon Theatre (two shows)
Still exploring the minutiae of our daily lives for “What’s the deal with” jokes, Jerry Seinfeld continues his monthly Beacon residency tonight with two shows.
The Feelies @ Rough Trade
The Feelies are a national treasure and their live shows remain wonderful marathons. This is the second of three Rough Trade shows this weekend. If you’ve never seen them, tonight’s a great time to change that.
Tribeca Film Festival
The 2019 Tribeca Film Festival wraps up this weekend and Saturday options include a 25th anniversary screening of Reality Bites with a reuniting of the cast including director Ben Stiller, writer Helen Childress, and actors Ethan Hawke, Winona Ryder, and Janeane Garofalo; a May The Fourth screening of the original Star Wars.
Morrissey @ Lunt Fontanne Theatre
With a new covers album out later this month, Morrissey continues his Broadway run tonight which is being billed as an “intimate career-retrospective show” that’s not all that different than a regular Morrissey show, apart from the location.
Earth Crisis, Ecostrike @ Brooklyn Bazaar
Syracuse vegan straightedge metalcore OGs Earth Crisis don’t play a ton of shows these days, so if you’re a fan you shouldn’t miss this chance eto see them. Opening is rising vegan staightedge band Ecostrike, who hail from Florida but are clearly influenced by the same world of Northeast hardcore that birthed Earth Crisis.
The Lemonheads, Tommy Stinson (of The Replacements), The Restless Age @ Brooklyn Bowl
’90s college rock boys The Lemonheads are touring behind their recent covers LP Varshons II, and are on the road with another alt-rock vet, The Replacements bassist Tommy Stinson.
Combo Chimbita, Stuyedeyed, Jafe and The Royals @ Elsewhere
Brooklyn tropical futurists Combo Chimbita celebrate the release of their newest album Ahomale with this special hometown show.
Infest, Dropdead, Burden @ Gold Sounds Bar
Powerviolence legends Infest have been reunited for a bit now, but their shows are still pretty rare. They played their first NYC show in a long while last night and do it again tonight. This one’s extra exciting thanks to direct support from Dropdead.
Son Volt, Ian Noe @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Long-running alt-country band Son Volt just released their new album Union, which frontman Jay Farrar says began as a political statement but he ended up interspersing the more fiery material with songs about the “power of love, time and music that sustains us.”
Skeletonwitch, Soft Kill, Wiegedood, Portrayal of Guilt @ Saint Vitus
Skeletonwitch had to part ways with their longtime frontman for some very serious reasons, but fortunately they’ve continued on with new singer Adam Clemans (of Wolvhammer) and made a killer album with him, 2018’s Devouring Radiant Light. This is their second night at Vitus, with the absolutely stacked (and musically diverse) lineup of Portland post-punks Soft Kill and Belgian black metallers Wiegedood (members of Oathbreaker), and there’s additional support varying by date from Texas screamo newcomers Portrayal of Guilt.
Venom Inc., Exmortus, Homewrecker @ The Kingsland
While Cronos still leads Venom without any other classic-era members, Mantas and Abaddon started their own competing version of the band, Venom Inc. (Though Abaddon is no longer in this band.) They’re on the road with Exmortus and Homewrecker, hitting Brooklyn tonight.
WFDU Signal To Noise Fundraiser: The Wharton Tiers Ensemble, Flower, BobCarolTed @ Union Hall
Help support college radio station WFDU by going to this fundraiser featuring Richard and Edward Baluyut’s pre-Versus group Flower and more.
Zombi, Jonas Reinhardt @ The Safari Room at El Cortez
Masters of eerie space rock, Zombi return to Brooklyn this week for El Cortez shows tonight and tomorrow. This one has appealing support from longtime Swans guitarist Norman Westberg.
Bandits of the Acoustic Revolution ft. Streetlight Manifesto @ Radio City Music Hall
Tomas Kalnoky, who was Catch 22’s singer for their classic debut album Keasbey Nights, now leads likeminded ska-punk band Streetlight Manifesto and Eastern-tinged acoustic band Bandits of the Acoustic Revolution, and his two projects will merge on stage at Radio City tonight.
