What’s going on Tuesday?
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight’s shows, but here are some highlights…
Madonna @ BAM: Brooklyn Academy of Music
Madonna’s Madame X tour continues its 17-show run at BAM, which are 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.
Ty Segall (& Freedom Band performing Melted), LAMPS @ Brooklyn Steel
Ty Segall’s five night NYC residency begins tonight — he and the Freedom Band will play their new, guitar-less album First Taste, and then they’ll perform Melted.
Kate Tempest, Akinyemi @ Elsewhere
Poet, novelist, playwright and rapper Kate Tempest released The Book Of Traps And Lessons earlier this year, and while her last few NYC shows have been whole album presentations, she’ll be pulling from all her records tonight. She’s amazing and not to be missed.
Porches, Little Becky Credit Cards (DJ set) @ The Sultan Room
Aaron Maine will be testing out new Porches material at this intimate show.
Built To Spill, Prism, The Warm Hair @ Webster Hall
Built to Spill’s classic LP Keep It Like a Secret remains one of ’90s indie rock’s crowning achievements, and the band plays their second of two shows at Webster Hall (and first of four NYC shows overall), where they’ll perform the album in its entirety, in honor of its 20th anniversary.
Justin Vivian Bond “Under the Influence” @ Joe’s Pub
Drag and cabaret legend JVB pays tribute to Judy Collins tonight as part of the “Under the Influence” series.
Man Man, GRLwood @ Brooklyn Bowl
The forever-weird Man Man return to Brooklyn tonight with support from another eccentric band, rising queercore-ish indie rock duo GRLwood. Should be a very cool sho all around.
The Comet Is Coming @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Psychedelic, space-rock-inspired jazz trio The Comet Is Coming (featuring Sons of Kemet’s Shabaka Hutchings on sax) put out two great releases this year, the Trust In The Lifeforce Of The Deep Mystery LP and the accompanying The Afterlife mini album, which just came out last week, and now the UK group is back in North America for another tour.
Maggie Rogers, Empress Of @ Radio City Music Hall
Alt-pop singer Maggie Rogers continues to get huge, and she’s got a pretty cool opener along for the ride on this tour: art pop great Empress Of. They’re playing Radio City tonight and tomorrow.
Team Dresch, Des Ark @ WFMU Monty Hall
Queercore vets Team Dresch are more active than they’ve been in a while, and they’re fresh off releasing a new two-song single — their first new music in 19 years — which finds their sound in fine form. They’re now touring the East Coast with Des Ark, who’s back from a three-year hiatus, hitting Jersey City tonight and NYC tomorrow.
Ciara @ Sony Hall
R&B singer Ciara isn’t making hits like she used to, but she remains active and some of her newer stuff is pretty solid. She put out Beauty Marks earlier this year.
The Number Twelve Looks Like You, God Mother, Pound @ The Kingsland
NJ mathcore vets The Number Twelve Looks Like You recently put out their first album in ten years, Wild Gods, which is as chaotic as their music has ever been. They’re now on tour with two solid support acts, and hitting Brooklyn tonight, Long Island tomorrow, and NJ later this month.
