What’s going on Thursday?
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight’s shows, but here are some highlights…
Roger Waters @ Prudential Center
While he might be a little outspoken for some, it’s hard to argue with Roger Waters’ body of work. He brings real spectacle (and tons of Floyd songs) to his live show, too.
Kevin Morby, Shannon Lay @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Kevin Morby released the great City Music earlier this year and this is his second time in NYC promoting it. If you’re going to this sold-out show, do get there early to see Shannon Lay — who Morby was so taken with he started a label to release her album.
Giuda, White Mystery @ Saint Vitus
Italy’s Giuda live in that small window on the ’70s where punk and glam meet, making for super fun, danceable rock n’ roll. Their live show is a total blast.
Arto Lindsay @ Whitney Museum
Downtown/no-wave legend Arto Lindsay kicks off his four-day “Myth Ashtray” series at the Whitney, which explores and celebrates Brazilian music.
William Basinski, Yatta @ First Unitarian Congregational Society
ISSUE Project Room’s 2017 Fall season opens with acclaimed avant-garde composer William Basinski, as well as a set from Sierra Leonean-American musician Yatta Zoker.
JD Samson, Lauren Murada, Andromeda @ Good Room
This is the September edition of Love Games, Good Room’s monthly disco, funk and soul party in the “Bad Room,” tonight with Le Tigre’s JD Samson.
Eric Clapton, Jimmy Vaughan, Gary Clark Jr @ MSG
Blues rock legend Eric Clapton is playing what he says are his final US shows this year. After tonight and tomorrow at MSG, you may never get to see him in New York again.
Remo Drive, McCafferty, Small Circle @ Knitting Factory
Minnesota’s Remo Drive recently released their debut album Greatest Hits, which has a lo-fi emo/pop punk vibe similar to late ’90s bands like Saves the Day and The Get Up Kids or modern bands like Joyce Manor. They’re on tour with McCafferty (who sound a lot like The Front Bottoms) and Small Circle, the band fronted by Marissa D’elia who also include three members of Sorority Noise.
Ava Mendoza’s Unnatural Ways, Reina Terror, Henry Fraser, Judith Berkson (solo) @ Silent Barn
The talented guitarist Ava Mendoza headlines this show with her band Unnatural Ways, and it’s also the release show for Reina Terror, whose music is “a completely subjective sonic interpretation of the general ambience during the imposition of Catholicism on the indigenous people of Peru circa 1500.”
NPR’s What’s Good with Stretch & Bobbito taping @ The Bell House
Legendary hip hop DJs Stretch Armstrong and Bobbito Garcia are doing their radio show for the first time since the ’90s, now as an NPR podcast, and tonight they’re doing a live taping in Brooklyn.
Goldie Awards 1st Annual DJ & Beat Battle @ Brooklyn Steel
A-Trak, Fool’s Gold, TMWRK, THUMP and Noisey are presenting the first annual Goldie Awards, where DJs and beatmakers will battle and be judged by Diplo, Mannie Fresh, Mija, Just Blaze, Craze, Destructo and The Whooligan. Dave East is your host.
Destructo @ Schimanski
After the Goldie Awards, HARD’s Destructo will DJ Williamsburg club Schimanski.
