What’s going on Thursday?
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight’s shows, but here are some highlights…
Phish @ MSG
Phish are not taking it easy this year. After doing a run of 13 MSG shows over the summer, they’re now back at the venue for their time-honored tradition of ringing in the New Year there. This is night one of four.
The Dillinger Escape Plan, Code Orange, Daughters @ Terminal 5
Spastic post-hardcore greats The Dillinger Escape Plan are calling it quits after three final shows at NYC’s Terminal 5. This is the second, and it’s the first of two with Code Orange and Daughters providing killer support.
Thursday, Frank Iero and The Patience, PUP @ The Paramount
NJ post-hardcore heroes Thursday reunited in late 2016, and their recent shows have been at least as good as the ones back in Thursday’s initial run. They’re keeping the touring going in 2018, but after that, they plan to either make a new album or end the reunion. First, they’re doing a few Northeast holiday shows with Frank Iero and PUP, this being one of two NYC-area dates.
Clutch, Devin Townsend Project, The Obsessed, Mike Westcott Band @ Starland Ballroom
Clutch are known for playing New Year’s Eve shows, and this year they’re doing it in Columbus, OH. First, they’re playing this Jersey show that has an absolutely stacked lineup, including prog metal staples Devin Townsend Project and reunited doom legends The Obsessed.
Gogol Bordello, Lucky Chops @ Brooklyn Steel
Every show by gypsy punk greats Gogol Bordello is a party, so it makes sense that they always love to play around New Year’s Eve. They aren’t playing NYE in NYC this year, but they’re doing two shows at Brooklyn Steel right beforehand.
Martin Rev, The Juan MacLean (DJ), Future Punx, Strange Names @ Bowery Electric
Forty years worth of NYC synthesizer-based music is (kinda) covered at this show tonight, featuring Suicide’s Martin Rev, nu-wavers Future Punx, The Juan MacLean and more.
The Felice Brothers, Spirit Family Reunion, Twain @ Junction
The Felice Brothers, who have been backing Conor Oberst on tour all year, have three NYC-area shows around the holidays. This one is the Tommy Brull Foundation’s annual Shine A Light benefit, and it’s got two quality openers.
Dar Williams “Christians Pagans & Other Hipsters” with Anais Mitchell @ The Bell House
Every year, Dar Williams does her “Christians Pagans & Other Hipsters” show at The Bell House around the holidays. This year she’ll be joined by Anais Mitchell, known — among other things — for her Justin Vernon-featuring folk opera.
Also see BrooklynVegan’s Top 50 Albums of 2017.
