What’s going on Sunday?
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight’s shows, but here are some highlights…
St. Vincent @ Kings Theatre
St. Vincent is touring in support of her excellent new album MASSEDUCTION, which takes her sound in tons of new directions, from high-strung odes to pills to hip hop-inspired synths to piano ballads and more. This is her second of two sold-out shows at Brooklyn’s gorgeous Kings Theatre.
Gin Blossoms (playing New Miserable Experience), The Cringe, Holy Tunics @ Irving Plaza
Though Gin Blossoms have released some questionable music over the years and they’re missing part of the lineup responsible for writing and recording their best songs, their 1992 breakthrough New Miserable Experience remains something of a classic and the band is playing that album in full tonight to celebrate its 25th anniversary.
Steve Earle & the Dukes, Lucinda Williams, Emmylou Harris @ Town Hall
Three greats in folk/country/Americana play this holiday concert benefitting The Keswell School, An educational program for children and young adults with autism.
Clap Your Hands Say Yeah (Some Loud Thunder 10th anniversary tour), Outer Spaces @ Bowery Ballroom
Clap Your Hands Say Yeah‘s 2005 debut was something of a classic of the “blog rock” era, and the band toured the album in full for its 10th anniversary in 2015. Now they’re also doing a 10th anniversary tour for that album’s less popular followup, Some Loud Thunder. Relive your mild disappointment, and perhaps wonder “whatever happened to Tapes n’ Tapes?” tonight.
Yvette, Eaters, Parlor Walls @ Elsewhere
If you’re into experimental post-punk type sounds, tonight is a pretty great bill, headlined by the very intense Yvette, and also featuring synthy duo Eaters.
Iron Chic, Mobina Galore, Off With Their Heads @ Knitting Factory
If you dig punk that’s aggressive but still melodic, this entire bill is for you. Headliners Iron Chic released their first album for SideOneDummy this year.
Cleric, Needle Driver, Torrential Downpour @ Saint Vitus
Experimental metal band Cleric are releasing Retrocausal this Friday. It features guest appearances by John Zorn, Mick Barr (Krallice), and Timba Harris (Secret Chiefs 3), and it was recorded by Colin Marston (Gorguts, Dysrhythmia). This is the release party.
Rory Scovel @ The Bell House
Rory Scovel‘s absurdist, confrontational style has made for memorable talk show appearances, as well as this year’s unique Netflix special, Rory Scovel Tries Stand-Up for the First Time.
