What’s going on Thursday?
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight’s shows, but here are some highlights…
Steve Gunn, Bridget St. John @ Union Pool
Steve Gunn begins his three-Thursday, full-band Union Pool residency tonight where we’re likely to get a first listen to songs from his forthcoming The Unseen in Between. Tonight’s show is with folk icon Bridget St. John.
The Goon Sax, Future Punx, Kevin Hairs @ ALPHAVILLE
The Goon Sax made their debut album, 2016’s Up to Anything, while members James Harrison, Louis Forster and Riley Jones were still in high school. It really captured the awkwardness of that age in its terrific songs and bare-bones production. A couple years on, the trio are back: a little older, a little wiser and, with We’re Not Talking, have bettered their debut in every way.
The Church (30th anniversary of Starfish) @ City Winery
Australian psych and alt-rock vets The Church are celebrating the 30th anniversary of their breakthrough album Starfish, which gave them a U.S. hit with “Under the Milky Way.” They’ll play it in full, along with other favorites, tonight.
Holly Miranda, Tim Mislock @ City Winery Loft
Meanwhile, upstairs in in City Winery’s Loft, Holly Miranda will bring her great songs and voice.
Molly Nilsson, Leah Lazonick @ Elsewhere Zone One
Her new album Twenty Twenty is still a couple weeks away, but Swedish synthpop singer Molly Nilsson will be celebrating it tonight. This is a small show for her — she’ll be back to play Elsewhere’s much bigger Hall next year.
Mr. Twin Sister, Sateen @ Elsewhere
The jazzy, lush Mr. Twin Sister celebrate the release of their new album, Salt, tonight. They’re usually terrific live.
Homeboy Sandman, Edan, Quelle Chris, Billy Woods @ Brooklyn Bazaar
Indie rap staples Homeboy Sandman and Edan are releasing their anticipated collaborative album tomorrow and this is the release show. It’s a great bill all around with Quelle Chris (who put out a great collaborative album with Jean Grae this year) and Billy Woods (who put out a great album as one half of Armand Hammer this year).
Mountain Man, The Dead Tongues @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Mountain Man members went their own ways (Amelia Randall Meath has gotten more famous as the singer of Sylvan Esso and Molly Erin Sarle and Alexandra Sauser-Monnig pursued solo careers) but then they regrouped and released Magic Ship, their first album in eight years. Now they’re back in NYC in support of it.
Spotlights, The Life and Times, Geometers @ Saint Vitus
Brooklyn’s shoegazy Spotlights and Shiner offshoot The Life and Times are on the road together (that’s a well-matched pairing), and tonight that tour lands in Spotlights’ hometown.
Pusha T @ Samsung 837
Pusha T’s DAYTONA remains one of the strongest rap albums of the year, so it’s exciting that he’s about to embark on his second tour supporting it. Before that tour (which includes two NYC shows), he does this in-store performance and Q&A tonight.
Hunter Hunt-Hendrix (of Liturgy), Angelina Dreem @ National Sawdust
Liturgy’s HHH “provides a live hybrid chamber/metal ensemble score to his directorial debut, the video opera Origin of the Alimonies, starring Angelina Dreem.”
The Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Ivan Neville, Ian Neville, George Porter Jr., Big Chief Monk Boudreaux, Lost Bayou Ramblers, 79ers Gang, Terence Higgins @ Sony Hall
The Dirty Dozen Brass Band are presenting this night of New Orleans music titled “Take Me to the River: New Orleans Live!”
Springsteen on Broadway
The Boss continues his sold-out “Springsteen on Broadway” run at the Walter Kerr Theatre, which runs through December. At these shows, Bruce is giving fans shows “that are as personal and as intimate as possible.”
