What’s going on Sunday? (St. Patrick’s Day)
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight’s shows, but here are some highlights…
Youth of Today, Shark Attack, Krimewatch, Line of Sight, Glitterer @ Brooklyn Bazaar
Hardcore as we know it wouldn’t be the same without Youth of Today, and their influence stretches far beyond the genre too. They’re currently reunited with the We’re Not In This Alone lineup of Ray Cappo, Porcell, Walter Schreifels, and Sammy Siegler, and this lineup is playing its first NYC shows in over 20 years this week. This is their second of three shows, and this one is extra exciting as it’s also Shark Attack’s first NYC show in 19 years. Sold out (but tickets for tomorrow’s show are still available).
The Flesh Eaters, Porcupine @ Bowery Ballroom
LA punk supergroup The Flesh Eaters — aka X’s John Doe & DJ Bonebrake, plus Dave Alvin & Bill Bateman of The Blasters, Steve Berlin of Los Lobos, and and frontman/poet Chris D — released their first album in 35 years in 2018. Tonight’s show is with Porcupine that features Husker Du’s Greg Norton on bass.
The Interrupters, Masked Intruder, Rat Boy @ Irving Plaza
The Interrupters make ska-punk that’ll bring you right back to the era of classic Rancid (and they work closely with Rancid’s Tim Armstrong), but their music sounds relevant today too. Their 2018 single “She’s Kerosene” was one of the year’s biggest alternative rock songs (seriously!), and their album Fight the Good Fight was one of the most enjoyable punk albums of the year.
Kenny O’Brien & The O’Douls (aka Kevin Devine), Crazy & the Brains (early), NO ICE (late) @ Mercury Lounge
To celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, Kevin Devine is transforming into the Celtic act Kenny O’Brien & The O’Douls for these BrooklynVegan-presented shows. In his words, “It’s gonna be a party, essentially, the kind of punk, uptempo side of what I do with some Celtic instrumentation.” He’s playing two shows at Mercury Lounge tonight, an early show with Crazy & the Brains and a late show with NO ICE.
Thursday, American Pleasure Club @ Saint Vitus
Thursday have been celebrating their 20th anniversary on this lengthy tour that has seen them playing their classic albums Full Collapse and War All The Time in full. Tonight they begin a three-night run at the very intimate Saint Vitus, and though these aren’t billed as full-album shows, they’ll probably play tons of classics. They also said they’d only tour again in the event of new music after this, so this may be your last chance to catch them for a while.
Sean Price tribute w/ Boot Camp Clik, Fame of M.O.P. & more @ SOB’s
The late, great Sean Price would have turned 47 today, and to celebrate his life and music, surviving members of his Boot Camp Clik collective will perform at this show, along with another Brooklyn hip hop vet, Fame of M.O.P. There will also be music by DJ Evil Dee, DJ Eclipse, PF Cuttin and DJ J Hart.
Murphy’s Law, No Redeeming Social Value, Functional Idiots, The Take, Enablers @ Bowery Electric
Bowery Electric hosts a killer bill of veteran NYHC tonight, with long-running bands Murphy’s Law, No Redeeming Social Value, and Functional Idiots, and newer band The Take who have current and former members of Agnostic Front, Madball, Sick Of It All, Biohazard, and more.
Too-Rye-Ay: A St Patrick’s Day Tribute to Dexy’s Midnight Runners (ft. Ted Leo) @ The Bell House
Ted Leo leads this Dexy’s Midnight Runners tribute band which actually sounds like a lot of fun. Let’s hope they dive into Dexy’s great debut album, Here Come The Young Soul Rebels, in addition to the requisite “Come on Eileen”.
Honey Radar, Dan Melchior, Rhyton @ Union Pool
If you dig low-fi indie rock like Guided by Voices, Philly band Honey Radar do it very well, and DIY vet Dan Melchior makes for a solid double bill.
