What’s going on Saturday?
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight’s shows, but here are some highlights…
The Bouncing Souls, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Leftover Crack, Fucked Up, Spanish Love Songs @ Stone Pony Summer Stage
NJ punk heroes The Bouncing Souls’ annual Stoked For The Summer show is today, and the lineup is stacked as always. They’ve got ska-punk lifers The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, comparatively elusive ska-core greats Leftover Crack, indie-hardcore genre-defiers Fucked Up, and newer punk band Spanish Love Songs.
Marissa Nadler, Wild Pink (solo) @ City Winery
After touring earlier this year with Stephen Brodsky behind their new collab LP Droneflower, Marissa Nadler returns to NYC for this intimate solo acoustic show at the soon-to-close original location of City Winery. Opening is a solo set by John Ross of heartland indie rockers Wild Pink.
Greatest Day Ever Festival @ Ford Amphitheater at Coney Island Boardwalk
The annual electronic/rap fest Greatest Day Ever has moved from its previous location in The Bronx to Coney Island for its 2019 edition, which happens tonight and tomorrow. Among tonight’s headliners are Pusha T, Jungle, Carnage, Cashmere Cat, and more.
‘Mickey and the Bear’ screening w/ Yohuna @ Industry City (Rooftop Films)
Rooftop Films hosts a screening of Annabelle Attanasio’s recent drama Mickey and the Bear tonight, alongside a Q&A with Attanasio and star James Badge Dale, and an opening set from indie pop songwriter Yohuna.
Jean Grae @ Joe’s Pub
Rapper, comedian, and podcast host, among other things, Jean Grae presents this “self-produced, composed and directed deep dive into the multi-hyphenate’s many lives.”
Dave Chappelle @ Lunt Fontanne Theatre
Dave Chappelle hasn’t toned things down for his Broadway debut, which runs through July 20. As is usually the case at Chappelle shows, no phones.
Warm Up w/ DJ Blass, Equiknoxx, Mark Ernestus, Mina, Bad Gyal, Ms. Nina, Lil C @ MoMA PS1
Warm Up continues with a great, diverse lineup that includes everything from genre-defying Jamaican collective Equiknoxx to German minimal/dub techno vet Mark Ernestus to reggaeton singers Bad Gyal and Ms. Nina, and more. Unfortunately, Santi had to drop off this show.
De La Soul @ Pier 17
De La Soul are celebrating the 30th anniversary of their seminal debut LP 3 Feet High and Rising this year, so hopefully we’ll get a lot of those Daisy Age classics tonight.
Cherubs, Low Dose, Conduit @ Saint Vitus Bar
Noise rock vets Cherubs are gearing up to release the new album Immaculada High later this month via Relapse, and all the singles have been as confrontational and weird as you’d expect. They’re now playing some shows with Low Dose (the new band of Legendary Divorce singer Itarya Rosenberg + all three members of the now-defunct Fight Amp), who also put out a new album this year.
Third Eye Blind, Jimmy Eat World, Ra Ra Riot @ PNC Bank Arts Center
It might sound a little weird on paper (but it’s not really that weird), but ‘90s mallternative rockers Third Eye Blind, emo vets Jimmy Eat World, and ‘00s indie popsters Ra Ra Riot have teamed up for a summer tour. It hits Jones Beach tonight and NJ tomorrow.
Salif Keita, Courtnee Roze @ Prospect Park Bandshell
The free BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival continues tonight, featuring prolific African singer-songwriter Salif Keita, along with bandleader Courtnee Roze, whose has worked with Alicia Keys, Beyoncé, and more.
Purling Hiss, Foster Care, Stefan Christianson @ Union Pool
Philadelphia’s Purling Hiss are sonic descendants of Dinosaur Jr, wrapping a catchy pop tune in steel wool blankets of noise and sheer volume. Foster Care are one of Brooklyn’s best garage punk bands.
Yeasayer, Steady Holiday @ Webster Hall
Yeasayer have touched on earthy ’60s-style psychedelia, bubbly synthpop, Bowie-esque art rock, modern R&B, and more throughout their career, and their latest album is this year’s Erotic Reruns. Having played a NYC release show at Rough Trade this past April, they stop at the larger Webster Hall tonight.
Baroness, Torche @ The Paramount
Baroness recently released their new album Gold & Grey, and Torche released their new album Admission yesterday, and both are great heavy rock records that find new and interesting ways to mix melody and aggression. Their tour together hits Long Island tonight.
Nicole Dollanganger, Brooks Ginnan @ Trans-Pecos
Canadian artist Nicole Dollanganger makes a compelling brand of tender, hazy bedroom pop, which should be even more interesting live.
Anuel AA @ Nassau Coliseum
Puerto Rican rapper Anuel AA is one of the biggest Latin trap artists at the moment, and understandably so — his many singles and collaborations are undeniable. He’ll play a headlining date at Long Island arena Nassau Coliseum tonight.
