What’s going on Tuesday?
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight’s shows, but here are some highlights…
The Chills, Brion Starr, Springhouse @ The Bell House
New Zealand indie rock icons The Chills, who have released two very good albums since returning to action five years ago. This is the kickoff to their first major U.S. tour in 20 years. Also notable: Jack Rabid’s band Springhouse are reuniting for this and a few other Chills dates.
Tim Hecker & Konoyo Ensemble @ National Sawdust
Ambient musician Tim Hecker released Koyoyo last year and has Anoyo on the way, both of which were influenced by and made in Japan. This show will “feature traditional Japanese Gagaku musicians on the shō, ryuteki and hichiriki in synergy with his own explorations of noise, dissonance, and melody, creating a hybrid of electronic abstraction and otherworldly minimalism, alternately heavy and gentle.”
Harlem, Las Rosas @ Baby’s All Right
You may remember Austin band Harlem, whose 2010 album, Hippies, was released on Matador, and who went on hiatus in 2012. Principle songwriters Coomers and Curtis have regrouped last year and Harlem released their first album in seven years last week. They celebrate tonight.
