What’s going on Saturday?
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight’s shows, but here are some highlights…
Marching Church, Bernardino Femminielli @ Sunnyvale
Marching Church is the project of Iceage singer Elias Bender Rønnenfeldt, whose new album Telling it Like It Is has a pleasingly Nick Cave-esque late night swagger to it. If you’re going tonight, be sure to catch Montreal’s eccentric (disturbing?) Bernardino Femminielli.
Wyclef Jean, Kassav, The Janes Life @ Terminal 5
Wyclef Jean‘s new EP, J’Ouvert, was just released and celebrates that — and the 20th anniversary ofThe Carnival— at this show.

Dan Deacon‘s “The USA” suite from his 2012 album America is going to be used by the New York City Ballet as part of their “New Combinations” program they’ll perform seven times this season. As choreographed by the acclaimed Justin Peck, the performance will have “his dancers trading their pointe shoes in for sneakers.”
