What’s going on Tuesday?
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight’s shows, but here are some highlights…
King Krule, Show Me The Body @ Warsaw
Having just released his terrific second album, The Ooze, Archy Marshall brings King Krule’s jazzy, dubby, trip-hop-y sound to Brooklyn.
Queens of the Stone Age, Royal Blood @ Madison Square Garden
Queens of the Stone Age returned this year with Villains, which was produced by Mark Ronson and has some of their danciest material yet. Their live shows are as towering as you’d expect, perfect for a place like the massive Madison Square Garden.
Lana Del Rey @ Terminal 5
Lana Del Rey recently released her great fourth album Lust for Life, and this week she plays her first club shows in NYC since 2012. (She played Governors Ball in 2015.) This is the second of two nights at Terminal 5, and both are sold out. Next year, her tour hits the NYC-area for a way bigger show at Prudential Center.
Nicolas Jaar @ The Kitchen (2 shows)
Having just wrapped up a four-night run at Brooklyn Steel (which he said would be his last NYC shows for a while), Nicolas Jaar now plays two shows at The Kitchen tonight. The first is the launch party for Maziyar Pahlevan and Africanus Okokon‘s book Sound Works / Art Works, which was released on Nico’s label, Other People. Nico will play an improvised noise set at that one. The later show will have him performing his upcoming ambient album live for the first time.
T-Pain (acoustic), Smino @ Gramercy Theatre
Though he got famous for using way too much auto-tune, T-Pain proved how gorgeous his actual voice is in an NPR Tiny Desk Concert in 2014. Now he’s taking the stripped-down approach of that video on tour. Opening tonight is Smino, who released the very good blkswn earlier this year.
The Soft Moon, Horoscope @ Rough Trade
After a few albums on Captured Tracks, San Francisco’s The Soft Moon have signed to Sacred Bones, which is a good home for their dark synthwave/goth/industrial sound. If you’re already celebrating Halloween this is a good primer.
Sondre Lerche @ McKittrick Hotel
Sondre Lerche celebrates the vinyl release of his new album, Pleasure, with this very intimate show.
The Obsessed, Cobalt, Savage Master @ Saint Vitus
The Obsessed and Cobalt are on tour together now, which is an incredible double bill. The Obsessed, one of the bands of doom metal legend Wino, released their first album in over two decades this year (on Relapse). Cobalt, who had to postpone their summer tour due to injury, are back at it and still supporting 2016’s Slow Forever, one of the best albums of that year in any genre.
Amine, Towkio @ Irving Plaza
Amine got big off his viral hit “Caroline,” and his recently-released debut album Good For You proved he’s no one-hit wonder.
2 Dope Queens @ Kings Theatre
Comedians Jessica Williams (The Daily Show) and Phoebe Robinson (Broad City) are bringing their WNYC podcast 2 Dope Queens to HBO, and are taping episodes at Kings this week.
Lawrence Rothman, PONY @ Mercury Lounge
Lawrence Rothman just released their debut album which illustrates their journey with gender fluidity and self-acceptance, and also features guest appearances from Chelsea Wolfe, Kim Gordon and others. Lawrence is a theatrical performer, and is worth checking out.
Courtship Ritual, Alum, Soft Ethnic, The Naked Heroes @ Secret Project Robot
Brooklyn duo Courtship Ritual make slinky noir-pop that at times is reminiscent of Tones on Tails or Love and Rockets They celebrate the release of their new EP tonight, as do fellow Godmode band Alum.
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.
A. Savage: The Past, Too, Is An Intruder – new paintings @ A-Pou’s Taste
Parquet Courts’ Andrew Savage, who just released a solo album, is also an accomplished painter and you can check out his latest works at this installation presented by the folks who ran IDIO Gallery.
Kyp Malone (of TV on the Radio), Darlin Darlin, Chase King, Joseph Sant, Matt G @ Muchmore’s
TV on the Radio’s Kyp Malone headlines this benefit for Puerto Rico hurricane relief.
