What’s going on Sunday?
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight’s shows, but here are some highlights…
globalFEST @ The Copacabana
The annual all-day, multi-stage globalFEST moves to The Copacabana this year, and the lineup is highlighted by 2018 Polaris Prize winner Jeremy Dutcher making his NYC debut, plus Brooklyn’s terrific Combo Chimbita, South Africa’s B.C.U.C. (Bantu Continua Uhuru Consciousness), Indian slide guitar master Debashish Bhattacharya, and lots more.
Winter Jazzfest tonight presents “We Resist,” a night of protest featuring Marc Ribot’s Songs of Resistance, “Word*Rock*Sword: A Musical Celebration of Women’s Lives” featuring Toshi Reagon and more.
Noname, Elton Aura @ Brooklyn Steel
Noname pulled from jazz and spoken word to make one of the best rap albums of 2018, Room 25, and now she’s supporting the album on tour. As good as the album is, her live show (with an ace band) is a whole different beast, the kind of thing you really have to see for yourself to fully experience. This is her second of two sold-out Brooklyn Steel shows.
Ensiferum, Septicflesh, Arsis @ Irving Plaza
Although they were sarcastically regarded as “the kings of elf metal” on our sister site Invisible Oranges, Ensiferum are masters of their niche genre and put on one hell of a riveting show. The inclusion of Septicflesh and Arsis is sure to make this an eclectic, skull crushing evening.
John Oates @ City Winery
He may be one half of one of pop music’s most successful duos of all time, but John Oates got his start in ’60s folk and returned to that on 2018 solo album Arkansas.
Darlene Love @ Sony Hall
With her emotive voice, Darlene Love was one of Phil Spector’s go-to girls, singing on songs under many guises (like The Crystals’ “He’s a Rebel”) and a few under her own.
Under the Radar Festival
It’s a big day for the Under The Radar Festival, with 10 events showcasing, theater, music, dance, comedy and more. Highlights include Penny Arcade, a puppet production of Frankenstein, and more.
