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 Dead C, Susan Alcorn @ First Unitarian Congregational Society
Prolific, noisy and long-running New Zealand indie rock cult legends The Dead C released new album Trouble last month via Bada Bing. Nearly 30 years since their first release, the new LP finds them a raging as ever. They kick off a short, rare U.S. tour tonight.
Let’s Eat Grandma @ Rough Trade
What to make of Rosa Walton and Jenny Hollingworth whose music as Let’s Eat Grandma is danceable, occasionally creepy and wonderfully weird? Comparisons have been made to everyone from Tricky to Lorde but there’s really nobody else quite like this very young duo. This is their first U.S. show.
Yusuf (Cat Stevens) @ Beacon Theater
Cat Stevens hadn’t played NYC since 1976 (!!!) but that finally changed last night. Tonight’s his second of two shows here this week. This tour also celebrates the 50th anniversary of his first single, 1966’s “I Love My Dog.”
Rat Columns, Ashes To Rain, Gift Wrap (Brendan of B Boys, solo) @ Union Pool
When Australian musician David West isn’t making music with Rank/Xerox or with Mikey Young as part of Total Control and Lace Curtains, he’s making his own bittersweet pop as Rat Columns. West is based out of NYC currently, so chances to catch them aren’t as rare.
Cake Shop Comedy @ Cake Shop
If you miss Big Terrific and Hannibal Buress’ Sunday night show at Knit, and are looking for a new free, weekly comedy show that happens in a rock club and sometimes has big name talent stop by unexpectedly, “Cake Shop Comedy” might do the trick.
SWEET w/ Seth Herzog @ The Slipper Room
Seth Herzog hosts this long-running comedy night that always features great guests.
Jamie Lidell and the Royal Pharaohs @ (le) poisson rouge
Jamie Lidell releases his sixth album, Building a Beginning, in October, and going by early singles, it’s continues his funk/soul revival.
Dead Heavens, Space Merchants, Gondola @ Saint Vitus
Walter Schreifels is one of the true pioneers of the last three decades of underground rock, thanks to Gorilla Biscuits, Quicksand, and more. Tonight his psych/garage band Dead Heavens plays Saint Vitus.
Blind Pilot, River Whyless @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Indie folkies Blind Pilot recently released And Then Like Lions, their first album in five years, on ATO Records. Tonight’s their first of two sold-out NYC shows in support of it.
A-Wa, Kosha Dillz @ Knitting Factory
Israeli sister trio A-Wa are a band who, in their own words, “combine Yemenite folk singing with electronic dance music.” Tonight they return to NYC with Jewish rapper Kosha Dillz opening.
