What’s going on Saturday?
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight’s shows, but here are some highlights…
Panda Bear @ 99 Scott Ave.
Panda Bear plays this special one-off outdoor show at Brooklyn’s 99 Scott Ave. behind this year’s Buoys, as part of the venue’s Open Air series. The space is encouraging fans to “come grab a drink with us outside in the Open Air, relax, hang with your friends, and enjoy some great music,” and it sounds like a nice environment to hear Panda Bear’s gooey psych-pop jams in.
Death Cab For Cutie, Jenny Lewis @ Forest Hills Stadium
Death Cab For Cutie head to Queens’ Forest Hills Stadium in support of last year’s very good Thank You For Today. They’ll be joined by Jenny Lewis for a solid double bill, who released a great album of her own recently, this year’s On The Line. At a recent show, Death Cab and Jenny Lewis joined forces on stage to do a Postal Service song. Fingers crossed that it happens tonight too!
Choking Victim, World/Inferno Friendship Society, Soul Glo, Crazy and The Brains, We The Heathens @ Market Hotel
NYC ska-punk vets Choking Victim’s shows are few and far between these days, so any chance to see them is a real treat. They play a second night at Market Hotel tonight with a ridiculously-stacked set of openers, including NYC cabaret punk vets World/Inferno Friendship Society, Philly hardcore rippers Soul Glo, lively NJ punks Crazy & the Brains, and We The Heathens.
Daughters @ House of Independents
Noise-punk greats Daughters returned last year with the great comeback album You Won’t Get What You Want, which saw them branching out from their roots and exploring brooding, gothy industrial rock. It’s arguably their best album yet, and tonight they’ll be supporting it in Asbury Park.
Deceased, Attacker, Ruthless, Eat Lead @ Brooklyn Bazaar
Death/thrash vets Deceased returned last year with the very solid new album Ghostly White, though unfortunately they had to cancel shows after the untimely death of drummer Dave Castillo. Dave is of course missed, but the band is pushing forward and they’re finally back in NYC tonight.
The Color Fred, Proper, Second Letter @ Knitting Factory Brooklyn
The Color Fred, the project of Fred Mascherino who was guitarist/co-vocalist of Taking Back Sunday for Where You Want To Be and Louder Now and used to front Breaking Pangaea (among other things), recently returned with their first new song in a decade. It finds Fred in fine form, and it’s enough to stir up some anticipation for tonight’s show.
Perry Farrell’s Kind Heaven Orchestra @ City Winery
Perry Farrell just released his first solo album in 18 years, Kind Heaven, which is also the name of this new Las Vegas hotel and entertainment destination… so expect a little razzle dazzle tonight.
Laraaji, Will Shore @ Public Records
Ambient composer Laraaji should sound amazing on Public Records’ bespoke sound system, performing Day of Radiance (Brian Eno’s Ambient 3).
Daddy Long Legs @ Rough Trade
Brooklyn trio Daddy Long Legs have been making scorching, sweaty, stomping, bluesy rock n’ roll since the start of the decade, and over the years have shared bills with The Sonics, Yo La Tengo, Nick Waterhouse, and more. After a few albums for Norton Records, the band signed with Yep Roc who released their latest platter, Lowdown Ways, earlier this year.
Garcia Peoples, Sunwatchers @ Rocks Off Concert Cruises
New Jersey band Garcia Peoples, who toured with Kikagaku Moyo lsat year, released their second album, Natural Facts, which mixes ’60s inspired sunshine pop by way of The Feelies and Television’s astute jammy-ness. They’re on a boat tonight with improvisational psych/jazz/punk quartet Sunwatchers.
Aziz Ansari @ Radio City Music Hall
After several stops at BAM earlier this year, comedian Aziz Ansari heads to the much larger Radio City tonight for a two-night stand, as part of his “Road To Nowhere” tour.
Doldrums, Samantha Urbani, Crying High @ Sunnyvale
Toronto singer/producer and visual artist Doldrums (real name Airick Woodhead) plays Sunnyvale tonight, featuring past collaborator Crying High and likeminded artist/musician and former Friends singer Samantha Urbani.
