What’s going on Thursday?
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight’s shows, but here are some highlights…
Vince Staples, Kilo Kish @ Terminal 5
Vince Staples is already having a great 2017, with a killer new single out and an appearance on one of the new Gorillaz singles. Tonight he headlines a pretty huge NYC show.
Weyes Blood, Julie Byrne @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
This is a pretty great pairing. Weyes Blood and Julie Byrne both make Joni Mitchell/Laurel Canyon/etc style folk, and their latest albums are some of the best stuff of its kind to come out recently.
Waxahatchee (solo), Kevin Morby (solo), Mary Lattimore @ Monty Hall
Waxahatchee has some new material in the works, and Kevin Morby recently announced a new album, and they’re both in the process of playing some solo shows together. This is the first of two nights at Jersey City’s Monty Hall, with harpist Mary Lattimore opening. Julie Byrne opens tomorrow’s show.
The Menzingers, Jeff Rosenstock, Rozwell Kid @ Irving Plaza
Heartland punks The Menzingers returned this year with their latest album, After the Party, and this is their first of two sold-out NYC shows in support of it. Both are with cult punk figure Jeff Rosenstock and the Thin Lizzy/Weezer-ish Rozwell Kid.
Aldous Harding, Air Waves, Katie Von Schleicher @ Rough Trade
New Zealand’s folky Adlous Harding just announced that the followup to her Flying Nun debut will come out this year on 4AD. It was produced by PJ Harvey collaborator John Parish, and the excellent new single features guest vocals by Perfume Genius. Hopefully she’ll preview more of the new record tonight.
The Blow @ The Kitchen
“We’ve been deep in our cave making a bunch of songs and we are allllllmost done and this show will be us setting up the atmosphere and inviting everyone into it for an hour or so.” – The Blow
Boss Hog, Surfbort @ Mercury Lounge
Jon Spencer and Cristina Martinez’s Boss Hog just released their first new album in 17 years and finds them fiery as ever.
Sleaford Mods, Negative Scanner @ Warsaw
Smart, angry, profane and decidedly British, Sleaford Mods continue to sound vibrant and vital on their just-released English Tapas. This is their first NYC show since their BV-presented show two years ago. Get there early for Chicago’s intense post-punks Negative Scanner.
Lambchop, Sloppy Heads @ Bowery Ballroom
Lambchop made one of 2016’s best records with the vocoder-tinged folk of FLOTUS. Kurt Wagner is a thoughtful, detailed storyteller — expect plenty of those in between songs too.
Ne-Hi, Little Junior, Lionlimb @ Baby’s All Right
Chicago band Ne-Hi’s sound — a dirty jangle with punctuating guitar leads that sometimes follow singer Jason Balla vocals — is pop at heart but informed by spiky post punk.
Grooms, The Flag, Plaque @ Union Pool
Brooklyn’s Grooms took a krautrock direction with 2015’s terrific Comb the Feelings Through Your Hair and now have its follow-up in the can. Expect some new songs tonight.
Calvin Love, Visuals, Beechwood, Heat @ Berlin
It’s opening night for Canadian acts Calvin Love and Heat’s three-night residency at East Village club Berlin.
Partner, The Regrets, Color Tongue @ Tender Trap
Canadian band Partner, who made a splash with single “The ‘Ellen’ Page” after it was given thumbs up from the actual Ellen Page, make their New York debut tonight.
Dead Heavens, Thick, neaux @ The Delancey
Post-hardcore legend Walter Schreifels is active with a ton of bands at the moment. His new-ish psych band, Dead Heavens, grace their hometown with a show tonight.
Baths, Knife City, Maxo @ House of Yes
Baths has been making lyrically bare electronic pop for quite some time now. He returns to NYC tonight for a sold-out show at House of Yes.
Becca Stevens, Jess Best, DJ P.U.D.G.E. @ BRIC House
After contributing to the last David Crosby album and touring as a member of his band, Becca Stevens released her latest solo album, Regina, which Croz also plays on (as does Laura Mvula). It’s great folky/singer-songwriter type stuff, and the release show is tonight.
Ann Wilson @ The Space at Westbury
Heart’s Ann Wilson still has a powerhouse voice like few others, and any chance to see her play is one worth taking.
UFO, Saxon, Jared James Nichols, DJ Alex Kayne @ BB King’s
You can still hear the riffs of hard/prog rockers UFO in many of today’s metal bands, and NWOBHM vets Saxon’s mark on the genre remains significant as well. These two classic bands are on tour together and play BB King’s twice this week. This is night 2.
DJs Jonathan Toubin & Mikey Palms @ The Legion in Gowanus
Cutty Sark open bar, ARM WRESTLING, and fun DJs. Need we say more? RSVP to CuttyRSVP@gmail.com for free entry to the Gowanus event.
