What’s going on Sunday?
It’s the start of Memorial Day Weekend and you can check out our guide to shows throughout the weekend. You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight’s shows, but here are some highlights…
John Zorn @ Village Vanguard
Jazz innovator and Downtown icon John Zorn has his own club in the city — The Stone — but today he’s playing a matinee as part of a quartet also featuring Steve Coleman (alto sax), Christian McBride (bass), and Tyshawn Sorey (drums). Advance tickets are sold out but you may be able to slide in when doors open at 3 PM.
Leon Vynehall, Alan & Andrew Blancato, David Marston, Toribio, Bryce David @ Good Room
Leon Vynehall’s great 2016 album Rojus (Designed To Dance) was a concept album based on Leon’s observation that the courtship rituals of birds of paradise were similar to that of humans trying to impress potential partners on the dancefloor in the club. The album was designed designed to mirror a club night from doors to close, using samples of bird calls. He also intended it to be “functional dance music,” which he’ll likely deliver plenty of at Good Room on Sunday.
The Orwells @ The Wonder Bar (NJ)
Chicago rabble-rousers The Orwells released Terrible Human Beings at the beginning of the year which drew inspiration from indie rock like the Pixies. Ahead of Governors Ball, they play Asbury Park today.
