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 Earle, Willie Nile @ City Winery
It’s an annual tradition these days, Steve Earle’s winter residency at City Winery, and his evenings of songs and stories continues tonight.
Gauche, Sediment Club, Alice Cohen, Lauren Oyler, Kate Wagner @ Secret Project Robot
Gauche, the Priests/Downtown Boys offshoot that just signed with Merge, headline this edition of “The Bad Society” which is presented by zine The Baffler featuring music and readings.
Holy Ghost! (live), Nation of Language @ Elsewhere Hall
Brooklyn dance dance vets Holy Ghost! are more likely to DJ these days but are bringing all their crazy analogue gear to Elsewhere’s Hall for what is sure to be a great sounding set.
Anika, Faten Kanaan @ Elsewhere Zone One
Meanwhile, in Elsewhere’s smaller Zone One room, it’s Anika who hasn’t toured as a solo artist in a while. (She toured with her band Exploded View last year.) This is a truly solo show — not with the members of Beak> she’s toured with in the past — and sold out.
Beverly, Lou Tides, Hypoluxo @ The Loft at City Winery
Drew Citron has put a lot of time into her other band — the post-punk-inspired Public Practice — lately but the sweet, surfy sounds of Beverly are still a going concern. Tonight’s show is with Lou Tides (aka Teeny Lieberson of TEEN).
Sorry Girls, Pow Pow Family Band, Maralisa @ C’mon Everybody
Montreal duo Sorry Girls are on the Arbutus label (who originally signed Grimes) and make an ethereal brand of synthpop.
Laraaji, Rachika S @ The Park Church Co-Op
Active since the 70’s, Laraaji went from being discovered by Brian Eno in NYC’s Washington Square Park to joining him on the list of the best ambient music makers of all time. Laraaji still puts out great music and plays shows today, and tonight he’ll be at Greenpoint’s gorgeous Park Church Co-Op.
King Princess, Banoffee @ Irving Plaza
Rising Mark Ronson-affiliated pop artist King Princess is expected to release her debut album this year, and she continues to perform in bigger and bigger spaces. Tonight’s her second of two consecutive NYC shows this week, both of which are/were sold out.
Daniel Romano, T hardy Morris @ Knitting Factory
Daniel Romano mixes rock, country, psychedelia, and more, and he’s super prolific. He’s on tour in support of his recent album Finally Free.
The End of the Ocean, Tides Of Man, Sainthood Reps @ Saint Vitus
Ohio post-rockers The End of the Ocean just released their first album in eight years (and second ever), -aire, on Equal Vision, and they’re on tour now with fellow post-rockers Tides of Man. Tonight’s show has quality support from local post-hardcore band Sainthood Reps.
Tracy Bonham @ Rockwood Music Hall
Tracy Bonham is one of the more underrated ’90s alt-rockers, but she was respected by her peers and ended up being influential, as her 2017 album of re-recordings featuring contributions from Tanya Donelly (Throwing Muses, Belly, The Breeders), Kathryn Calder (The New Pornographers), Sadie Dupuis (Speedy Ortiz), and more proved.
Thin Lips, Grace Vonderkuhn, Freezing Cold, Darkwing @ Alphaville
Philly indie-punks Thin Lips are back in Brooklyn in continued support of their very enjoyable 2018 album Chosen Family.
Barrie, Majetic, Major Murphy @ Baby’s All Right
Brooklyn dream pop band Barrie are on the rise and about to head out on tour supporting Miya Folick. First, they play his hometown headlining show tonight with Grand Rapids group Major Murphy who are worth showing up early to see.
Vijay Iyer Sextet @ Jazz Standard (two shows)
Modern jazz great Vijay Iyer’s latest album as a bandleader was 2017’s excellent Far From Over , his first with a sextet. His sextet plays two shows a night at Jazz Standard tonight through Saturday.
60-90 Minutes of Comedy With Chris Gethard and A Friend @ Union Hall (two shows)
The title of this show pretty much says it all. And, as Chris Gethard has been getting more and more famous lately, you may not be surprised to learn that both of tonight’s shows are sold out.
