What’s going on Thursday?
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight’s shows, but here are some highlights…
Kate Tempest, Latasha Alcindor @ Le Poisson Rouge
Kate Tempest’s amazing Let Them Eat Chaos was one of 2016’s best albums, full of heart, humor, vitriol and empathy. She’s a riveting, knockout performer, too, and she’ll be performing that LP in full tonight.
New Order @ Radio City Music Hall
Mancunian post-punk-turned-pop icons New Order are stopping in NYC on their way to Coachella for this show. We’ll be surprised if their setlist is much different than when they played Radio City Music Hall two years ago, and it’s not the same without Peter Hook, but there’s no denying the tunes.
Xenia Rubinos, Kominas, Starchild and The New Romantic @ Bowery Ballroom
Last year, Xenia Rubinos released her excellent album Black Terry Cat, which sort of takes a DIY approach to Beyonce-style R&B/soul and is very lyrically powerful. She’s on tour now in continued support of it.
A.M. Homes, Amanda Palmer, Regina Spektor, Anand Giridharadas, Ekow Yankah, Elvis Perkins, John Forte, Julia Bullock, Maria Popova, Mark Warren, Matthieu Aikins, Susan Minot @ The Marlin Room at Webster Hall
Some very talented people, most notably Regina Spektor and Amanda Palmer, are playing smaller rooms than they usually do for this benefit called “Dear America” where all net proceeds benefit The Southern Poverty Law Center, NRDC, The Trevor Project, and Planned Parenthood.
Floating Points, JFDR @ Brooklyn Steel
Floating Points started out as a solo electronic musician, but he’s gotten progressively jazzier and now tours as an 11-piece band. Tonight he plays the new Brooklyn Steel venue, which just opened with a five-show LCD Soundsystem run.
Jorma Kaukonen @ The Space at Westbury
Hot Tuna are about to play two electric NYC shows, but first singer/guitarist Jorma Kaukonen is playing a solo show in Long Island. Proceeds benefit Long Island Autism Communities.
Entrance, Permanent Waves (ex-Slant 6/Autoclave), HIGHLIFE, Ensalmo @ Alphaville
Psychedelic artist Entrance (aka Guy Blakeslee) returns to NYC tonight, and direct support comes from Permanent Waves, the current project of Slant 6/Autoclave’s Christina Billotte.
Michael Hurley, Zachary Cale @ Union Pool
’60s-era outsider folk musician Michael Hurley remains active and getting to see him is a real treat. This week he plays two-sold out shows at Union Pool, this being the second.
The Losers Lounge Tribute to George Michael @ Joe’s Pub
Joe McGinty has been leading the Loser’s Lounge for 20 years, each edition paying tribute to a single songwriter/performer with a host of guest vocalists. Tonight begins a three-night stand at Joe’s Pub where they’ll honor the music of George Michael (and Wham!).
Bowl Train w/ DJ Premier @ Brooklyn Bowl
Every edition of Questlove’s weekly Bowl Train this month has a special theme. This one has the legendary DJ Premier at the boards in place of Questlove.
