What’s going on Thursday?
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight’s shows, but here are some highlights…
Iggy Pop, Patti Smith & Her Band, Laurie Anderson, members of New Order, Sufjan Stevens, Alabama Shakes, Ben Harper @ Carnegie Hall
It’s the annual Tibet House benefit, featuring a whole bunch of seriously great musicians all coming together for a worthy cause.
Jacuzzi Boys, Alexander F, Grim Streaker @ Baby’s All Right
Miami maniacs Jacuzzi make superior garage pop, full of big choruses and tight playing. Their spirited live shows are always a lot of fun.
Dungen @ BRIC House
Jazzy Swedes Dungen wrote and recorded a new score for Lotte Reiniger’s 1926 film The Adventures of Prince Achmed (generally regarded to be the oldest surviving full-length animated feature film). They’ll be performing that score live tonight to a projection of the film which is sure to be a special evening.
Candiria, Moon Tooth, Spotlights, Eyes of the Sun @ Knitting Factory
Genre-defying heavy band Candiria returned from hiatus and last year they put out a new album, While They Were Sleeping. They remain as uncompromising as ever.
Todd Barry (book release), John Hodgman, Joel Kim Booster, Special Guests @ The Bell House
For his new book Thank You For Coming to Hattiesburg, Todd Barry played shows in “secondary markets” all over the US, Canada and a few in Israel. The result is part travel guide, part tour diary, with a little memoir in there as well. He celebrates its release tonight with help from John Hodgman and more.
Against Me!, Mobina Galore @ The Paramount
Having just opened for Green Day at Barclays Center, the great Against Me! play a smaller headlining New York show tonight. Opening is the very solid Winnipeg punk duo Mobina Galore.
Devendra Banhart, H. Hawkline @ Webster Hall
Freak-folk figurehead Devendra Banhart released his new LP Ape in Pink Marble back in September. Catch him tonight with quirky Welsh singer (and Cate Le Bon cohort) H. Hawkline.
Tortoise, Little Black Egg, Tara Jane O’Neil @ The Hall at MP
Post-rock icons Tortoise released their first album in seven years, The Catastrophist, in 2016 and are now returning to NYC for a couple more shows. Openers are good here as well with Little Black Egg (aka Georgia Hubley of Yo La Tengo) and noise-folk singer Tara Jane O’Neil.
Fishbone @ House of Independents
Alt/metal/funk/punk/etc band Fishbone are back with original drummer Fish Fisher (which makes four original members including Angelo Moore, Norwood Fisher, and Walt Kibby), and they’re now on tour playing 1996’s Chim Chim’s Badass Revenge in full. They’re in Asbury Park tonight, and will play NYC later this month.
House of Pain @ Irving Plaza
I just wouldn’t be St. Patrick’s Day (on the day before St. Patrick’s Day in this case) without a celebratory concert from Irish-American hip hop outfit House of Pain. Expect shamrocks, shenanigans and other merriment.
Phil Lesh & Friends @ The Capitol Theatre
There are a handful of Grateful Dead-related bands around right now, and Phil Lesh & Friends are one of the best. Phil and his rotating lineup — which for these shows is vocalist Joan Osborne, guitarists Stanley Jordan and John Kadlecik, keyboardist/multi-instrumentalist Jason Crosby and drummer Mark Levy — do a lot of justice to the Dead classics. Plus, it’s a chance to see Phil sing. Tonight’s their second of three Cap shows this week.
