What’s going on Tuesday?
For all of tonight’s shows, and tomorrow’s, check out our NYC concert calendar.
Madonna @ BAM: Brooklyn Academy of Music
Madonna’s Madame X tour has begun with a 17-show run at BAM, some of the most intimate shows of her career. The show is heavy on her new album but it’s a rare chance to get up close and personal with Madge.
B-52’s, Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark, Berlin @ Central Park SummerStage
It’s a triple bill of ’80s new wave, headlined by the great B-52’s who are celebrating their 40th anniversary, UK synthpop icons OMD (ditto), and West Coast metro-riders Berlin.
Friendly Fires, Ria @ Elsewhere
Friendly Fires just released their first album in eight years which is thick with steel drum disco club music. Is that what Wham! in 1985 would’ve sounded like today? We are not saying that’s a good or bad thing.
Lizzo, Ari Lennox @ Radio City Music Hall
Even if you’re not a pop music fan, there’s a strong chance you’ve heard of Lizzo constantly this year, due to her successful debut LP Cuz I Love You, whose single “Truth Hurts” just hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100. This is her second of two sold-out Radio City shows.
Brittany Howard, Nate Smith, Kinfolk @ Beacon Theatre
Alabama Shakes singer Brittany Howard is fresh off releasing her debut solo album Jaime, which is a little more on the psychedelic soul side than the Shakes and her most personal release to date. It’s at least as good as anything she’s done yet, and she’ll bring those songs to life tonight.
Tegan & Sara @ Murmrr Theatre
This week, Tegan & Sara are releasing Hey, I’m Just Like You, an album of reworked songs that the duo originally wrote as teenagers. They’ve also got a new memoir called High School out today. For this tour, they’re doing mostly acoustic performances of the songs on the new album (as well as some other songs from throughout their career), read from the new memoir, and screen found video footage from their adolescent years.
The Hu, Al Lover @ Warsaw
Mongolian folk metal band The Hu went viral after releasing some of their early videos, and earlier this month they put out their debut album and started their first-ever North American headlining tour. We caught them at Riot Fest, and the live show is the real deal.
Jade Bird, Flyte @ Webster Hall
UK singer/songwriter Jade Bird pulls from both country and pop on her self-titled debut album, which came out earlier this year. Having recently toured North America with Father John Misty and Jason Isbell, she’s now back for some headlining dates.
Mat Kerekes, Shortly, Teamonade @ Rough Trade
Mat Kerekes fronts emo/post-hardcore band Citizen and he also makes lighter music on his own, and his solo tour hits NYC tonight with Triple Crown-signed singer/songwriter Shortly, who Mat has collaborated with.
Cross Record, Thelma, youbet @ Trans-Pecos
Cross Record was originally the duo of Emily Cross and her now-ex-husband Dan Duszynski (both of whom were also in Loma with Shearwater’s Jonathan Meiburg), but now it’s Emily’s solo project and her new self-titled album came out earlier this year on Ba Da Bing.
High Reeper, Yatra, Priestess @ Saint Vitus
You probably know what to expect from a metal band called High Reeper, and if Sabbath worship is what you crave, go to Saint Vitus tonight.
The Midnight Hour feat. Ali Shaheed Muhammad and Adrian Younge, Loren Oden, Angela Munoz, Jack Waterson, DJ Natasha Diggs @ Brooklyn Bowl
Last year, A Tribe Called Quest’s Ali Shaheed Muhammad and psychedelic soul composer/producer Adrian Younge released a collaborative album called The Midnight Hour, and now they’ve touring as The Midnight Hour. They’re touring as a 10-piece ensemble, and the tour features collaborative opening sets from the group’s vocalists, Loren Oden and Angela Muñoz, and guitarist Jack Waterson
Chris Gethard, Megan Stalter, Sam Taggart, Marcia Belsky, Drew Anderson, Julio Torres @ Union Hall
Drew Anderson, Sam Taggart and Marcia Belsky have moved their stand up show STEVIE from Bushwick to Union Hall and tonight features Julio Torres (SNL, Los Espookys), Chris Gethard, and more.
