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 @ BB King Blues Club & The Liberty Theater.
Having moved from it’s previous home of Webster Hall (which is closed for renovations), Globalfest 2018 happens across three stages with musicians from around the world, including Ava Rocha, the US debut of Celtic folk act Jarlath Henderson Band, Puerto Rico’s Miramar, forward-thinking mariachi combo Flor de Toloache, Iranian singer Mohsen Namjoo, Detroit blues artist Thornetta Davis, Balkan Romani music makers Eva Salina & Peter Stan, Georgian singers Iberi Choir, and more.
Wildhoney, Big Bliss, Hypoluxo, Fruit & Flowers @ Elsewhere
Shoegaze retreads are a dime a dozen but it really takes skill to put together memorable songs and insteresting arrangement on top of all that tremelo bar and distortion pedal worship. Baltimore’s Wildhoney are one of the very good ones.
Cracker, Camper Van Beethoven @ Highline Ballroom
David Lowery’s two main concerns — the hippyish college radio faves Camper Van Beethover, and the more successful ’90s alt-rock hitmakers Cracker — both play tonight at one show.
12-hour Drone @ H0L0
It’s just like what it sounds, 12 hours straight of drone to zone out too, featuring droners Nathan Cearley, Jenn Grossman, Ben Seretan, Mike Green, Dylan Marcheschi, David First, Jeanann Dara, Ka Baird, Marcia Bassett, Bob Bellerue, Jesse Derosa, Ryan Soper, Smhoak Mosheen, Anastasia Clarke, and “lots more!”
Ravi Coltrane, Melodic Meditations of Alice Coltrane (le) poisson rouge
Part of Winter Jazzfest, Ravi’s show is called “Universal Consciousness: Melodic Meditations” which is “dedicated to exploring the music and paying tribute to the life…the program will include some of Alice’s devotional compositions, as well as other pieces associated with her sound and legacy, making for a truly special celebration of musical spirituality.” Sounds like a great way to wind down the weekend.
Say Anything, Tim Kasher, Backwards Dancer @ Irving Plaza
Say Anything are on tour playing some full albums. They’re doing disc one of In Defense of the Genre tonight and disc two at the same venue tomorrow, and one show will have Is A Real Boy in full and the other will have self-titled in full (they’re not saying which one is which). Making the shows extra exciting is direct support from Cursive frontman Tim Kasher.
