What’s going on Sunday?
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight’s shows, but here are some highlights…
Nine Inch Nails, The Jesus and Mary Chain, Daniel Avery @ Radio City Music Hall
Nine Inch Nails have been on tour for a few weeks and they’ve been mixing up their setlists from night to night and also throwing in surprises, like a full performance of the Broken EP and the first-ever performance of “The Perfect Drug.” They play their second of four NYC shows tonight — will they have any surprises in store at these? Direct support comes from their old friends/heroes The Jesus and Mary Chain, and electronic musician Daniel Avery is opening.
Mew (performing Frengers), Mass Gothic @ Brooklyn Steel
Danish dream pop band Mew have written a lot of good albums, but none as consistently strong as Frengers, and that’s the one they’ll perform in full for its 15th anniversary tonight. That was really the album where everything clicked for Mew, and it’s got a handful of their all-time best songs.
AJJ, Kimya Dawson, Rozwell Kid, Shellshag @ Warsaw
This is a great bill all around, co-headlined by the folky, punky AJJ and anti-folk vet Kimya Dawson who has been in the midst of a comeback.
Doja Cat, Pell, Starboi3 @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Doja Cat became an internet sensation thanks to her song/video “Mooo!” that started all the “bitch I’m a cow” memes, but she was already a talented (and more serious) artist before that. Her debut album Amala came out earlier this year and it’s worth hearing. Direct support comes from rapper/singer Pell, who recently put out a few promising singles — new album soon?
Mystery Science Theater 3000 Live! @ PlayStation Theater
It’s the 30th anniversary of MST3K and in celebration, show creator Joel Hodgson and current host Jonah Ray, plus the ‘bots, will be riffing live to Canadian horror film The Brain at 3 PM and classic Season 7 MST3K film, Deathstalker and the Warriors from Hell at 7 PM.
Max Richter @ Town Hall
Composer Max Richter is playing his amazing, elegiac score for The Leftovers with the ACME Ensemble and fans of the HBO series may recognize today, October 14, as “Sudden Departure Day” (aka the day in the series when 2% of the world’s population disappeared with no explanation).
Phil Collins @ Barclays Center
Out of retirement, Phil’s here to play us his many many many hits
Meredith Monk @ Le Poisson Rouge
Avant-garde composer Meredith Monk is performing ‘Cellular Songs,’ “the newest in a series of music theater pieces created by Meredith Monk that explore our interdependent relationship with nature while seeking to evoke the ineffable.”
Lydia Lunch, Last Poet Umar Bin Hassan, Michael Imperioli @ Public Arts
No Wave Icon Lydia Lunch and Legendary Last Poet Umar Bin Hassan are No Wave Out,” a “brazen, unprecedented live performance project.” Also on the bill: Michael Imperioli who you may remember as Christopher on The Sopranos.
Wyatt Cenac, Seaton Smith @ Union Hall
Wyatt Cenac is performing every Sunday in October at Union Hall for a series he calls “It’s Maybe Something With Wyatt Cenac.”
Phoebe Robinson @ The Bell House
2 Dope Queens; Phoebe Robinson celebrates the release of her new book, Everything’s Trash But It’s Okay, and you get a copy of the book with your ticket.
Every Time I Die, Death Cults @ Saint Vitus
Buffalo metalcore vets Every Time I Die wrap up their five-show NYC run with this intimate — and unsurprisingly sold out — Saint Vitus show.
Doyle, Anaka, The Rooftop Rebellion @ Gramercy Theatre
Doyle is back with Danzig and Jerry Only in The Original Misfits, but while their shows are few and far between, Doyle remains extremely busy on the road with his solo career.
Ladama, Carmela Martinez @ Union Pool
The four women who make up Ladama are each from different countries (Brazil, Colombia, Venezuela and the U.S.), and they pull traditional sounds from all four of their home countries into an appealing, contemporary blend.
NYC Zombie Crawl @ The Continental
A pre-Halloween tradition, the undead will walk the Lower East Side in search of brains (and alcohol) for the twelfth annual edition of the NYC Zombie Crawl. The evening starts at 4 PM with one of your final chances to visit Continental Bar, which is scheduled for demolition soon, and continues with the crawl itself at 6:30 PM and an afterparty at Beauty Bar at 8:30 PM.
