What’s going on Saturday?
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight’s shows, but here are some highlights…
Hank Wood and the Hammerheads, Warthog, Subversive Rite, Dollhouse @ Brooklyn Bazaar
Brooklyn Bazaar says goodbye to its unique Greenpoint Ave location with one last blowout, headlined by NYC garage punk greats Hank Wood & The Hammerheads. Sold out.
Yasiin Bey (fka Mos Def) @ Sony Hall
Mos Def’s fantastic solo debut Black on Both Sides turned 20 this year and Yasiin Bey has already done one anniversary show for it which had Dave Chappelle as a surprise guest. Even if no surprises happen at this one, hearing him do the album’s songs is reason enough to go.
Death Angel, Ex Mortus, Hellfire @ Saint Vitus
Thrash metal is in the air lately, with the new Murder in the Front Row doc, the final Slayer tour, and the ongoing thrash revival, so it’s a great time to catch Bay Area thrash legends Death Angel, who not only put out some classics of ’80s thrash but also released the very fine Humanicide this year.
Jozef Van Wissem @ Trans-Pecos
Dutch composer and lutist Jozef Van Wissem is a frequent collaborator of indie film legend and musician Jim Jarmusch, and he’s also a great artist in his own right. Head to Ridgewood venue Trans-Pecos to see what magic he has in store for NYC tonight.
Kompakt Night with Michael Mayer, Rex The Dog and Lily Ray @ Elsewhere
German electronic label brings their cool, trance aesthetic (and artists Michael Mayer, Rex The Dog and Lily Ray) to Brooklyn for a night of chilled out dancing.
Joe Mande @ Littlefield
Joe Mande has a successful career as a TV writer these days (The Good Place, Parks & Recreation, Master of None), and he’s still a fantastic, acerbic stand-up. He also lives in L.A. now, so chances to see him here are rarer. Tonight’s show is with Ayo Edebiri and more TBA.
Andy Kindler @ Union Hall (2 shows)
Stand-up vet Andy Kindler has appeared just about everywhere from Letterman to Fallon, and you may also know him from Bob’s Burgers (he voices Mort) or But I’m Chris Jericho.
Ana Gasteyer: Sugar & Booze @ Joe’s Pub
If you miss Ana Gasteyer’s presence on Saturday Night Live, she’ll be bringing her comedy and musical skills with this holiday-themed show.
Bridget Everett & The Tender Moments @ Joe’s Pub
Backed by her band The Tender Moments, Bridget Everett provides an extremely unexpurgated night of comedy and music that may not be for the easily embarrassed.
Immortal Technique, Chino XL @ PlayStation Theater
It’s one of your last chances to get to Playstation Theater before it closes at the end of the year, and tonight they’ve got underground rap lifer Immortal Technique.
CHON, Between the Buried and Me, Intervals @ Brooklyn Steel
It’s a double dose of two very different kinds of prog with this co-headlining tour from proggy math rockers CHON and prog-metallers Between the Buried and Me.
Guster, And The Kids @ Terminal 5
Long-running indie group Guster’s eighth album, Look Alive, mixing up styles, from soaring, M83-ish arena rock, to whimsical Beatles/Kinks pop, to out-there electronics, to calming indie rock, and beyond.
You can also find quality entertainment on almost any night of the week at: Barbès bar and performance space in Park Slope, LunÀtico in Bed Stuy, Nublu in the East Village, Blue Note jazz club in the West Village, The Stone in multiple locations, Comedy Cellar in the West Village, and Q.E.D. comedy club in Astoria.
