What’s going on Thursday?
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight’s shows, but here are some highlights…
Teenage Fanclub, The Love Language @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
We’ll admit Teenage Fanclub will never be the same without Gerry Love, who wrote some of our favorite songs, but Norman and Raymond wrote lots of good ones, too, and it is cool they got Euros Childs from Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci to join the band for this tour.
Phil Lesh & Friends (w/ Benmont Tench, John Scofield, Jackie Greene, Grahame Lesh and John Molo) @ The Capitol Theatre
The Grateful Dead’s Phil Lesh turns 79 this week and to celebrate, he’s doing a run of shows at the Cap. Among the musicians in his band this week is Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers keyboardist Benmont Tench.
Bob & David & Friends @ The Bell House
It’s a Mr Show dream come true: “Bob Odenkirk and David Cross perform comedy in the form of standup talking and confrontational yelling. FRIENDS FROM SHOWBIZ will join them.”
The Atomic Bitchwax, Mirror Queen, Wicked Willow @ The Safari Room at El Cortez
NJ stoner rock vets The Atomic Bitchwax are hitting the road later this year opening for Black Label Society, but if you’d like to see them headline a smaller venue before that, here’s your chance.
Dan Mangan, Pale Ramon @ Mercury Lounge
Canadian singer-songwriter Dan Mangan stops in NYC tonight behind his latest release, 2018’s More or Less.
Jerry Seinfeld @ Beacon Theatre (2 shows)
Iconic NYC comedian Jerry Seinfeld (who recently made a cameo in the new Vampire Weekend video) resumes his 20-date Beacon Theatre residency tonight with two stand-up shows.
Ben Ottewell (of Gomez), Ian Ball (of Gomez) @ Rough Trade
In addition to their work together in Gomez, Ian Ball and Ben Ottewell have established themselves as solid solo acts, and they’ll each be showcasing their own material…and playing together, too.
Music For Enophiles, The Ritualists @ The Bowery Electric
Brian Eno only ever played a handful of solo shows during his mid-’70s pop years that gave us Here Come the Warm Jets, Taking Tiger Mountain, Another Green World, and Before And After Science, but Music for Enophiles aims to recreate that era. The group is led by Blue Man Group musical collaborator Larry Heinemann and they do it pretty well.
Harley Flanagan presents Cro-Mags, Huge, Chud @ Sunnyvale
This show has been postponed, with a new date “announced soon.”
Most of the BrooklynVegan staff is in Austin this week for SXSW and if you’re there too, please head to Mohawk this afternoon for the free BrooklynVegan/Margin Walker/M for Montreal day party with Japanese Breakfast, Rico Nasty, Wand, Priests, Pottery, and more. Hope to see you there!
