What’s going on Sunday?
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight’s shows, but here are some highlights…
Franz Ferdinand, Bodega @ Brooklyn Steel
Though we miss Nick McCarthy, Franz Ferdinand remain a fun live band and mid-’00s hits like “Take Me Out” and “This Fire” still go over like gangbusters. If you’re going, don’t miss Brooklyn’s Bodega who are cut from the same post-punk cloth as FF, but bring a situationist attitude and humor.
The Feelies @ Rough Trade
The Feelies are a national treasure and their live shows remain wonderful marathons. This is the final of three Rough Trade shows this weekend. Officially sold out, but if you’re really wanting to go it might be worth checking by at doors (8 PM), There were tickets Friday and Saturday.
Ed Schrader’s Music Beat, Showtime Goma x Lou Tides, Pollens @ Baby’s All Right
Dan Deacon produced the new Ed Schrader’s Music Beat album, Riddles, giving the Baltimore duo much more of a sleek, synthetic sound. How that will play out with the band’s usual minimal performance style, you’ll find out tonight. Opening: frequent collaborators Jen Goma (Showtime Goman) and TEEN’s Teeny Lieberson (Lou Tides).
Black Dice, Bunny Michael, Macy Rodman, Jennifer Vanilla, Sweat Equity, DJ Dog Dick, Somos Monstros, Bottoms, Frank Hurricane, Robot Death @ MoMA PS1
Secret Project Robot curated this “Spring Performance Festival” featuring six hour-long durational pieces, videos, improvisational theater, solo and collaborative projects, and live music. Noon – 6 PM, free.
Titus Andronicus (acoustic), Rick Maguire from Pile @ Murmrr Theatre
Titus Andronicus’ latest album, A Productive Cough, is heavier on ballads than the punk-ish band usually is, so to celebrate, they’re on their first-ever “acoustic” tour, which has frontman Patrick Stickles and pianist Alex Molini playing as a duo. Rick from Pile opens.
Martin Rev / Wolf Eyes, Humanbeast, Insect Ark, Mystic Ruler + Bentley Anderson @ Elsewhere
If you like heavy and/or experimental music, this whole bill will be up your alley. It’s led by Martin Rev of legendary synthpunk duo Suicide and noise-rockers-turned-riff-rockers Wolf Eyes. It’s also the release party for Insect Ark.
RLYR, Fotocrime, Kevin Hufnagel @ Saint Vitus
Even if you don’t recognize these bands by name, they’re all familiar faces. RYLR is members of Pelican, Locrian and Bloodiest, Fotocrime is members of Coliseum and Young Windows, and Kevin Hufnagel is in Dysrhythmia, Gorguts, Vaura, and more.
Oceanator, Haybaby, Goodie @ Alphaville
Brooklyn’s Oceanator just released a new EP on Tiny Engines, and it’s very solid indie rock that’s not afraid to rock. Oceantor is often the solo project of Elise Okusami, but tonight they’re celebrating the new EP with a full-band show.
