What’s going on Tuesday?
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight’s shows, but here are some highlights…
Mac DeMarco, Ex Hex @ Prospect Park
Mac DeMarco started his own record label this year and released Here Comes the Cowboy. He’s still known as a burp-loving prankster but his heartfelt songs tell another story. Still, expect some kooky antics tonight, and if you’re going, get there early for the glammy punk of Ex Hex.
Stray Cats, James Hunter @ The Rooftop at Pier 17
Rockabilly greats made a comeback in a big way in 2019, releasing their first new studio album in 25 years and supporting it on their first U.S. tour in 10 years.
Sons of Kemet, Irreversible Entanglements @ Industry City
UK afro-jazz ensemble Sons of Kemet are one of the projects of the great saxophonist Shabaka Hutchings, who is emerging as one of the clear leaders of modern-day UK jazz. They’re riding high off the strength of last year’s great Your Queen Is A Reptile, and tonight they play the Summer Series at Industry City with support from Irreversible Entanglements, a Philly/NYC/DC-based free jazz collective who count avant-rapper/poet Moor Mother as a member/co-founder.
Korn, Alice In Chains, Underoath, Ho99o9 @ Jones Beach
Nu metal OGs Korn are gearing up to release their new album The Nothing, and they’re supporting it on a co-headlining tour with grunge/alt-metal vets Alice In Chains. If you’re going tonight, we also recommend showing up early for industrial rap duo Ho99o9, whose live shows get pretty crazy.
Howlin’ Rain, Garcia Peoples, Wet Tuna (featuring Matt Valentine) @ Garcia’s at The Capitol Theatre
West Coast psych band and lovers of ’70s rock, Howlin’ Rain stop in Port Chester on their way to the Huilicha East festival. Garcia Peoples are well worth catching, and both play the Brooklyn show on Wednesday.
Greg Fox @ The Sultan Room at The Turk’s Inn
Greg Fox (Liturgy, Uniform, etc) returns to newly-opened Bushwick venue The Sultan Room at The Turk’s Inn tonight, performing as part of the ongoing drummer series “Batterie.” Greg plays two sets at 9 PM and midnight, where he’ll be joined by Shahzad Ismaily, Michael Beharie, Stuart Bogie, Ben Chapateau-Katz, and Dave Harrington.
Barry Manilow @ The Lunt-Fontanne Theatre
Born and raised in Williamsburg (take that, Karen O), Barry went on to write the songs that made the whole world sing (even if he didn’t write “I Write the Songs”). Like Morrissey before him, he’s doing a short run at the La Fontanne.
