What’s going on Tuesday?
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight’s shows, but here are some highlights…
TIDAL X Brooklyn hurricane relief benefit concert @ Barclays Center
TIDAL has put together a great lineup for a great cause with TONS of artists, including gigantic names like Stevie Wonder and Jay-Z, NYC’s biggest rap breakout story of the year Cardi B, longtime local staples like Fat Joe, Remy Ma, and Jadakiss, and newer greats like A$AP Ferg, Vic Mensa, Joey Bada$$, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Princess Nokia, Tee Grizzley, Rapsody, and more.
Ministry, Death Grips @ Terminal 5
Though they may come from different generations, Ministry and Death Grips share a goal of making dark, abrasive, confrontational music, making this a pretty exciting double bill. Ministry’s classics still sound brutal in a live environment, and they should work pretty well with Death Grips’ more modern material. This is their second of two NYC shows.
Nicolas Jaar, Amnesia Scanner @ Brooklyn Steel
Electronic musician, singer, and leader of the on-hiatus Darkside, Nicolas Jaar begins a four-night Brooklyn Steel run tonight and says these will be his last NYC shows for a while. All but the fourth night are sold out.
Chelsea Wolfe, Youth Code @ Irving Plaza
Chelsea Wolfe recently released her latest album, Hiss Spun, which is her closest to ’90s hard rock and industrial yet, and perhaps her most accessible. She’s on tour with EBM duo Youth Code, who should pair well with the industrial leanings of Hiss Spun.
Aura Noir, Trenchgrinder, Couch Slut, Funeral Leech @ Knitting Factory
Long-running Norwegian metal band Aura Noir’s original trio lineup of Aggressor, Blasphemer and Apollyon are currently on their first-ever North American tour. This is their second of two Knitting Factory shows, and they’re promising “a different set each night, covering their entire twenty-four year long career.” Both shows have great, different openers too.
Tracy Bonham, Lizz Winstead @ The Cutting Room
Tracy Bonham’s 1996 alt-rock debut included a pretty huge hit with “Mother Mother,” and the album also predicted some of the sounds of modern-day indie rock, like Speedy Ortiz, whose Sadie Dupuis has a strikingly similar voice to Tracy. Sadie appears on Tracy’s new re-imagined version of that album (along with members of Belly, The New Pornographers, Letters to Cleo, and more), which came out last week. This is the release show.
Arto Lindsay, Beauty Pill @ (le) poisson rouge
This will be the second time downtown NYC icon Arto Lindsay and DC band Beauty Pill have toured together this year. This tour, however, Beauty Pill are playing without singer/songwriter Chad Clark (who is in the hospital after a bad reaction to an antibiotic). Jean Cook, who sings lead on a few Beauty Pill songs, will hold down the fort vocally. Feel better Chad!
Cults, Cullen Omori, Hideout @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
After records on major label Columbia, indie pop duo moved to indie label Captured Tracks for their new album, Offerings. Tonight’s record release show is with former Smith Westerns member Cullen Omori.
Weaves, Tancred @ Rough Trade
Toronto’s Weaves make fizzy, hyperactive guitar pop and just released Wide Open, the follow-up to last year’s Polaris Prize-nominated debut. Tonight’s the NYC record release party.
Springsteen on Broadway
It’s the hottest ticket on Broadway: Bruce Springsteen playing solo at the intimate Walter Kerr Theatre, performing some of his biggest hits and telling stories about them. His show runs through February.
