You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight’s shows, but here are some highlights…
Yeah Yeah Yeahs @ Kings Theatre
Yeah Yeah Yeahs recently reissued their classic 2003 debut Fever To Tell and they’re celebrating the reissue with just a few shows, which are their first proper shows in four years. This is the band’s first proper hometown show since Barclays Center in 2013, and it’s sold out.
Tune-Yards, Miss Eaves @ Baby’s All Right
Tune-Yards are gearing up to release a new album, I Can Feel You Creep Into My Private Life, in January, and ahead of their 2018 tour, they’re playing a very intimate Brooklyn show tonight. Sold out.
Tori Amos @ Beacon Theatre
Tori Amos has been busy this year, first releasing her very good fifteenth album Native Invader and then reissuing her “lost” 1988 hair metal album. She’s on tour now, and this is her first of two Beacon Theatre shows.
New York Comedy Festival
The annual NYCF, which runs through Sunday, begins tonight with such acts as Brian Regan and lot more,
Stand Up for Heroes @ Madison Square Garden
One of the NY Comedy Fest’s centerpieces, John Stewart’s annual benefit this year features an impressive lineup of funny folk — Hasan Minhaj, John Mulaney, Trevor Noah, Conan O’Brien, John Oliver — plus live music from Red Hot Chili Peppers @ The Theater at MSG
Here & Elsewhere (Live A/V Experience) w/ Vatican Shadow & David Lobser @ Elsewhere
PopGun’s new Bushwick venue Elsewhere currently has a VR art installation created by visual artist David Lobser and soundtracked/sound designed by Noveller. Tonight there’s a live performance — unfornately Noveller had to pull out at the last moment but in her place is Vatican Shadow who will do a special downtempo set in 5.1 sound and four-wall projection in the main Hall. It’s free with RSVP. If you haven’t checked out Elsewhere yet (it’s only been open a week) here’s good chance.
AJJ, The Sidekicks @ Bowery Ballroom
AJJ (fka Andrew Jackson Jihad) are playing 2007’s People Who Can Eat People Are The Luckiest People In The World in full on tour this year for its tenth anniversary. Like they did back then, they’re playing as a duo with Sean Bonnette on acoustic guitar and Ben Gallaty on stand-up bass. If you’re going, don’t miss The Sidekicks.
Mozzy, OMB Peezy @ SOB’s
Prolific Sacramento rapper Mozzy recently released his latest album 1 Up Top Ahk, which has the rapper telling autobiographical stories over bass-heavy West Coast production. He brings his tour behind that album to SOB’s tonight, with quality support from his Sacramento neighbor OMB Peezy.
Susanne Sundfor, Shey Baba @ Le Poisson Rouge
Norwegian artist Susanne Sundfør just released Music For People In Trouble. a lovely showcase for her brand of cinematic folk, as well as her gorgeous voice.
Kristin Hersh @ City Vineyard
Whether fronting Throwing Muses, 50 Ft Wave or performing her solo material, Kristin Hersh is an iconoclast who sounds like no one else. Part of City Vineyard’s “Voices on the Hudson” series.
Flying Lotus ‘in 3D’, Seven Davis Jr., PBDY @ Brooklyn Steel
While you could rightly argue that all of Flying Lotus’ show s are in 3D, this tour is, like, even more so. “It’s like going to see a 3D movie…except its a concert,” complete with the glasses.
Lydia Loveless (solo), Lola G. (of DTCV) @ Union Pool
Alt-country badass Lydia Loveless recently released a compilation album featuring rarities and covers, and this week she plays two solo shows at Union Pool.
Astronautalis, Ceschi, Gage @ Knitting Factory
Indie rapper Astronautalis remains prolific and active, having released Cut the Body Loose last year, his first album for SideOneDummy.
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.
