You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight’s shows, but here are some highlights…
Santigold @ Rough Trade
Saintigold celebrates the release of her terrific new album 99¢ with this intimate in-store show. You need to buy a copy of the LP to attend. She’ll play Hammerstein Ballroom in April.
Benjamin Clementine @ Mercury Lounge
UK singer Benjamin Clementine won the Mercury Prize last year for his album At Least for Now that earned him a few “male Nina Simone” comparisons. Tonight’s the last of four NYC shows on his current run.
Jack Garratt, Kacy Hill @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
We’re not crazy about the headliner, but if you’re going to this show it’s worth catching recent G.O.O.D. Music signee Kacy Hill, who makes James Blake-inspired pop.
Deradoorian, Anna Wise, White Hinterland @ Union Pool
Deradoorian put out her debut album last year, which pulled from influences from all over the world. It’s a little progressive, a little psychedelic, and always strangely accessible. Tonight she begins a weekly March residency at Union Pool with different openers each night. This time it’s Kendrick Lamar collaborator Anna Wise and dream pop act White Hinterland.
Akwetey, Gray, D.O.Z., Kyp Malone, Madame Gandhi @ Le Poisson Rouge
Akwetey Orraca-Tetteh’s exhibition “Tiro: Millennial Soldier” opens tonight at Le Poisson Rouge’s gallery and following the opening reception are live performances by D.O.Z. (Dragons of Zynth), Gray (performance artist Michael Holman, Nick Taylor, and more), Kyp Malone (of TV On The Radio), and Madame Gandhi (of MIA). This is free with RSVP.
Desiigner, J.Y., Yung Nate, Kadeem King, Shindig @ The Marlin Room at Webster Hall
Brooklyn rapper Desiigner’s profile has quickly risen thanks to a guest appearance on Kanye’s new album (and a sample of his song “Panda” on that same album). He’s gotten a lot of comparisons to Future — he maybe sounds too much like Future — but you can see what all the buzz is about tonight.
Ask Me Another feat. Wyatt Cenac and Hailey Gates @ Bell House
NPR’s live quiz show taping “Ask Me Another” returns, and tonight’s guest is ‘Night Train’ host Wyatt Cenac.
Punderdome 3000 @ Littlefield
Comedian Jo Firestone and her dad, Fred, host this live game show that encourages you to be the cheesiest you can. The bigger the groan, the better.
An Evening with Molly Ringwald @ Birdland
Pretty in Pink just celebrated its 30th anniversary and tonight its star Molly Ringwald sings cabaret.
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. Tonight features sets by Charla Lauriston, Joel Kim Booster, Paul Hooper, and Sean Donnelly.
