What’s going on Sunday?
Mal Blum, Pill, Emily Yacina, gobbinjr, Beth Israel, Peaer, Goodman @ Aviv (Summer’s End Music Festival)
DIY venue Aviv just announced they’ll be leaving their current Greenpoint location at the end of October, so if you’ve been meaning to check it out, a great time to go would be this weekend’s Summer’s End Music Festival which today features PILL, Beth Israel, and more.
The English Beat @ City Winery
You can argue that Dave Wakeling and a bunch of sidemen is hardly The English Beat that gave us three classic ’80s albums, but there’s no denying songs like “Mirror in the Bathroom” and “Save it for Later.” His voice still sounds great, and he throws in a few General Public favorites, too. Ranking Rogeris missed though (as are David Steele, Andy Cox, Everett Morton and Saxa).
Ilana Glazer, Michelle Buteau, Phoebe Robinson @ Littlefield
Ilana Glazer of Broad City is presenting this night of friends and comedy and as you might expect it’s sold out.
Bad Boy Family Reunion w/ Puff Daddy, Lil Kim, Faith Evans, Mase, Total, Carl Thomas, The Lox, French Montana @ Madison Square Garden
Puff Daddy is getting members of the Bad Boy Family back together for a tour to revisit classics from his unstoppable ’90s era, pay tribute to Biggie, and more.
EXO-TECH w/ Kimbra, Sean Lennon, Colin Stetson, Caroline Polachek, Jim White, Sophia Brous, Dave Harrington, Yuka Honda, and more! @ Pioneer Works
Kimbra and Australian artist Sophia Brous are doing another of their collaborative “EXO-TECH” shows on Sunday, out at Red Hook’s cavernous, unique Pioneer Works. This one features Sean Lennon, Colin Stetson, Chairlift singer Caroline Polachek (who’s also DJing), Dirty Three/Xylouris White’s Jim White, Arcade Fire’s Sarah Neufeld, Darkside’s Dave Harrington, and more.
Modern Life is War, Primitive Weapons @ Saint Vitus
Modern Life Is War helped create the type of dark melodic hardcore which is now more popular than ever, and they’re now fully back in action. They returned from hiatus with a new album in 2013, and they toured their best album (Witness) in full for its tenth anniversary last year.
For all of tonight’s shows, and tomorrow’s, check out our NYC concert calendar.
