What’s going on Sunday?
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight’s shows, but here are some highlights…
Jandek @ Trans-Pecos
Outsider cult musician Jandek has been releasing records through his own Corwood Industries label since 1978. Much of that time he was an enigma who had never been seen in the wild, but following documentary Jandek on Corwood, he actually came out of seclusion, a bit, and in 2004 began playing shows. This is his first NYC show in six years.
Faust, Marc Edwards & Slipstream Time Travel @ Murmrr Theatre
German group Faust mixed electronics and psychedelia and though they’re initial run was short their shadow was long, influencing post-punk and industrial in particular. Still led by founding members Werner “Zappi” Diermaier and Jean-Herve Peron, Faust’s music remains revolutionary.
OZY Fest w/ Passion Pit, Grouplove, Chelsea Handler, Michelle Wolf, Malcolm Gladwell, Laverne Cox, Jemele Hill, Roy Choi, Sanaa Lathan, Tom Steyer, Scott Rogowsky, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand @ Central Park Rumsey Playfield
OZY Fest wraps up its third edition to today with more music, comedy, food and innovative thinking.
Ed Schrader’s Music Beat, Juiceboxxx, Dog @ Coney Island Baby
Ed Schrader’s Music Beat collaborated with fellow Baltimore musician Dan Deacon on their new album, Riddles, which found them heading in sleeker, bigger sonic territory. They’re a super fun (and funny) live band.
Judah Friedlander, Jordan Carlos, Jacob Williams, Moody McCarthy, Dave Kinney @ EastVille Comedy Club
Eastville, which just moved from the East Village to downtown Brooklyn, has had solid lineups its whole first week, tonight being no different.
John Cleese (With Monty Python And The Holy Grail) @ Kings Theatre
Even with the annoying superfans who will surely be here for this, a chance to watch The Holy Grail in a big theater like this, with John Cleese on hand to share stories about it, sounds pretty great.
NY Night Train, Boytoy, Miranda and The Beat, Jonathan Toubin (DJ) Our Wicked Lady
It’s the NY Night Train Sunday Soul Scream featuring DJ sets from Jonanthan Toubin and his pals, plus live music and more…all on Our Wicked Lady’s sweet roof.
DOA, Kevin Seconds @ Brooklyn Bazaar
Vancouver punk vets D.O.A., who some credit for inspiring the “hardcore” genre title with their Hardcore ’81 album, are on the road celebrating their 40th anniversary. Opening this run is Kevin Seconds of another legendary punk band, 7Seconds, who broke up earlier this year.
Cowboy Junkies @ City Winery
Dream/folk/slowcore vets Cowboy Junkies gave a 30th anniversary reissue to their classic Trinity Sessions LP earlier this year, and then they released a very worthy new album, All That Reckoning, last week. Tonight, they begin a three-night run at City Winery.
Com Truise, Anna Wise, Aaron Taos @ Industry City (Sequence Music Fest)
The two-day Sequence Music Festival at Industry City Courtyard 1/2 wraps up today, headlined by producer/DJ Com Truise, and also featuring Kendrick Lamar collaborator Anna Wise.
ONO, Taiwan Housing Project, BLOOR, Samantha Riott @ The Glove
’80s-era Chicago noise punks ONO resurfaced earlier this decade, and they’ve been releasing new music, which stands tall against their earlier work. They’re back in NYC tonight.
Jen Kirkman @ Union Hall
Very popular comedian Jen Kirkman is trying out new material at this intimate (and unsurprisingly sold-out) show.
The Art Gray Noizz Quintet, Wharton Tiers Ensemble, Risk/Reward, Ken Butler @ Union Pool
You may know Art Gray as Lubricated Goat frontman Stu Spasm. He formed the Noizz Quintett, which also features members of Twin Guns, Live Skull and Ruin, to play the premeire party for the Amphetamine Reptile documentary and they’ve just kept going.
