What’s going on Tuesday?
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight’s shows, but here are some highlights…
Charlotte Gainsbourg @ Brooklyn Steel
Charlotte Gainsbourg, who made one of our favorite albums of 2017, was supposed to play the day of Panorama 2018 that got rained out. She’s back now, and we’ll admit the idea of seeing her somewhere dark and indoors is more appealing than playing a mid-afternoon festival slot.
Keren Ann @ City Winery
Need another French singer option tonight? Keren Ann, who used to call NYC her home, now live is Paris but is back supporting her new album, Bleu. This is her first show here in quite a while.
Beastie Boys Story Told By Ad Rock & Mike D @ Kings Theatre
Expect these shows, where Mike D and Ad Rock tell stories about their time in Beastie Boys (with audio-visual accompaniment), to be similar — but different — to the “Beasties Book: Live and Direct” ones they did last year. Spike Jonze is directing these for a special to be released somewhere, sometime, TBA.
Andrew Bird @ National Sawdust
In celebration of his new album My Finest Work Yet, he’s playing two intimate Brooklyn shows. Expect violins, whistling, loop pedals and dapper outfits.
Emily King, iLL Camille, Fantastic Negrito, Samm Henshaw, Serpentwithfeet, Sheléa @ The Shed
New Manhattan multi-arts center The Shed is open now, and their “Soundtrack of America” series — “a five-night concert series celebrating the influence of African American music with a new generation of groundbreaking artists” continues tonight with R&B boundary pusher serpentwithfeet, and much more.
Jeff Tweedy, James Elkington @ Town Hall
Last year, Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy released his enjoyable (and highly acclaimed) solo album WARM, and he’s now supporting it on a tour that hits NYC’s Town Hall for its second of two shows. It’s worth getting there on time for folk singer James Elkington’s set too.
Wake, Pryolatrous, Cane Corso, Unmen @ Saint Vitus
Canadian grinders Wake got a lot of love for their 2018 album Misery Rites (it landed on year-end lists from JR Hayes of Pig Destroyer and Decibel), and they’re now supporting it on the “East Coast Burial Ground Tour.”
Lil Baby, Blueface, City Girls @ Wellmont Theatre
This is an awesome rap bill all around, headlined by the increasingly huge Lil Baby, and also featuring “Thotiana” hitmaker Blueface and the fast-rising City Girls.
Roger McGuinn @ Landmark on Main Street
Last year, Byrds frontman and jangle pop master Roger McGuinn did a Sweetheart of the Rodeo 50th anniversary tour with fellow Byrds member Chris Hillman, and now he’s on a solo tour which includes his first NYC show in ten years later this month. Before hitting NYC, he hits Long Island tonight, NJ on Thursday, and Tarrytown on Saturday,
