Bob Dylan, Mavis Staples @ Beacon Theatre
Bob Dylan is on tour supporting his latest covers album and of course playing the classics too.

Opening is Mavis Staples, whose powerful new album If All I Was Was Black came out on Friday.
Dipset, A$AP Mob, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Don Q @ Hammerstein Ballroom
Having just released the new song “Once Upon A Time,” beloved Harlem rap crew Dipset (Cam’ron, Juelz Santana, Jim Jones, and Freekey Zekey) are playing their first show in two years tonight. It’s a great bill all around, with newer beloved Harlem rap crew A$AP Mob, fast-rising Bronx rapper A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, and A Boogie’s Bronx neighbor Don Q.
Heems, Nadia Tehran @ Elsewhere
Heems has been enjoying some increased popularity thanks to his group Swet Shop Boys, but his solo material is still killer too and you can see him play that stuff tonight.

It’s a whole night of Lemon Twigs-related acts. Dr. Danny (aka Twigs keyboardist Danny Ayala) but the night also includes Ronnie D’Addario backed by his sons and main Twigs Michael and Brian, plus a set from The Michael D’Addario Trio (expect lots of covers).
