What’s going on Thursday?
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight’s shows, but here are some highlights…
Mount Eerie @ Knockdown Center
Mount Eerie released one of the most devastating albums of 2017 with A Crow Looked At Me, which was about the death of his wife Geneviève. He followed it this year with the equally great Now Only, which is similar in theme and lyrical style to its predecessor and just as heartbreaking.
Justin Timberlake, The Shadowboxers @ Madison Square Garden
Justin Timberlake recently released his new album Man of the Woods which a lot of people hate, but that didn’t stop it from producing a few successful singles that you hear everywhere, and come on, some of those singles are pretty undeniable. He’s also of course playing tons of his many generation-defining pop songs on this tour, which hits MSG tonight and again in October, and Prudential Center on Sunday.
“Weird Al” Yankovic, Emo Phillips @ The Apollo
While he’s known for his parody’s of rock and pop songs, “Weird Al” also writes his own original, satirical songs and that’s what he’s playing on this “Ill Advised” tour. Making it even weirder is Emo Phillips who opens. First night of two.
The Wedding Present, Terry De Castro @ The Bell House
Some 30 years into their career, The Wedding Present’s David Gedge still plays guitar like his arm’s on fire. Their sets on this tour have been loaded with favorites. Former TWP bassist Terry De Castro opens the show.
Iceage, Gong Farmer @ Kinfolk 90
Danish punks Iceage kick off their four-show NYC residency of small venues, tonight being their first of two shows at Kinfolk. Iceage’s new album, Beyondless, is out in May.
Four Tet @ National Sawdust
Four Tet returned last year with his great new album New Energy, and the IDM musician is in the midst of debuting his new live show at a five-night Brooklyn run.
Men I Trust, Hatchie @ Mercury Lounge
Montreal’s Men I Trust make dreamy, electronic-tinged dream pop, and their live show was great at SXSW last week. They’re now in NYC for two sold-out shows. This is the first, and if you’re going, it’s worth catching likeminded Australian opener Hatchie.
The Soul Rebels performing The Music of Drake, Kendrick Lamar, & Outkast, DJ Binky Griptite @ Brooklyn Bowl
NOLA brass band The Soul Rebels are doing a three-night run at Brooklyn Bowl with very different sets each night. This is night one, and tonight they’ll be performing the music of Drake, Kendrick Lamar, and OutKast. The next two shows are with special guests.
Miranda Lambert, Jon Pardi, Charlie Worsham @ Prudential Center
Country singer Miranda Lambert is still riding high off of 2016’s highly acclaimed (and deservedly so) double album, The Weight of These Wings, and she’s back in the NYC-area to support it with a big arena show tonight.
Iron Chic, Bigwig, Teenage Halloween, Ellen and The Degenerates @ Brooklyn Bazaar
Long Island punk staples Iron Chic returned last year with the very solid You Can’t Stay Here, and tonight they’re playing a hometown-area show with some cool openers, including direct support from NJ punk vets Bigwig.
Chris Brokaw, Monotrope, Thurn and Taxis @ Union Hall
Chris Brokaw has been an active musician for decades, as a member of classic indie bands Codeine and Come, and much more. Tonight he’s in solo mode.
Son Lux, Sinkane, Hanna Benn @ Brooklyn Steel
Art pop trio Son Lux recently released their fifth album Brighter Wounds, and now they’re supporting it on tour with their funky City Slang labelmates Sinkane.
Lucius, Ethan Gruska @ Town Hall
Harmony-laden indie pop band Lucius recently released their fourth album, Nudes, which features Nels Cline and Roger Waters collaborations, and Gerry Rafferty and Tame Impala covers. They headline this sold-out NYC show tonight, and they’ll play here again in September, opening for Portugal. The Man at Forest Hills Stadium.
GosT, ÆON RINGS, Valentine (DJ) @ Le Poisson Rouge
GosT is part of the same metal-affiliated synthwave scene as S U R V I V E, Perturbator and Carpenter Brut, and he’s quickly emerging as one of the leaders.
Holly Miranda, Garrett Eaton & Tim Mislock @ The Park Church Co-Op
Holly Miranda just released her fourth solo album, Mutual Horse, which features collaborations with My Brightest Diamond’s Shara Nova, TV On The Radio’s Kyp Malone, Grandaddy/Modest Mouse’s Jim Fairchild and Built To Spill’s Matthew Morgan. Tonight’s the NYC release show.
Springsteen on Broadway @ Walter Kerr Theatre
The Boss continues his t “Springsteen on Broadway” run at the Walter Kerr Theatre, which has just been extended through June. At these shows, Bruce is giving fans shows “that are as personal and as intimate as possible.”
