What’s going on Wednesday?
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight’s shows, but here are some highlights…
Pedro the Lion, H.C. McEntire @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Pedro the Lion are back in it for the long haul. They’re not only playing shows again, but they’ve got their first album since 2004 planned for a 2019 release. This is their first NYC show since reuniting (the first was last night), and it looks like they’ve been playing at least a little new stuff and some of David Bazan’s solo stuff on tour too. Also don’t miss Mount Moriah’s H.C. McEntire, who released a very good solo album earlier this year.
Tacocat, GYMSHORTS @ Rough Trade
Seattle’s Tacocat balance social commentary with a razor-sharp wit, positive attitude and super-catchy songs.
Pop. 1280, Chexx @ Saint Vitus Bar
Wednesday goth-friendly party Nothing Changes, which happens at Saint Vitus these days, tonight features Brooklyn’s boisterous Pop. 1280. Late start — doors at 11 PM — but it’s free.
Batushka, Imperial Triumphant, Luminous Vault @ Knitting Factory Brooklyn
Mysterious Polish black metal band Batushka released their church-chants-fueled debut album Litourgiya in December 2015, and then finally gave it a US release last year. They were supposed to make their live US debut last year but had to cancel the shows, and now they’re finally playing the US. This is their second of two Brooklyn shows.
Alice Smith, Akala, DJ Stormin @ Marcus Garvey Park
Long-running soul singer Alice Smith, who currently lives in NYC, plays a free outdoor hometown show tonight as part of the ongoing SummerStage concert series.
Summer Fling: Comedy Night @ The Mailroom
Seth Herzog hosts this comedy showcase at The Mailroom, featuring stand up from Dave Hill (who did an amazing set on “The Twelve Days of Christmas” at last weekend’s Macaulay Culkin Comedy Festival, which also featured a set from Herzog), Kerryn Feehan (truTV), Craig Baldo (warm up comic for John Oliver), and none other than Tariq Trotter, a.k.a. Black Thought, of The Roots.
Too Many Cooks @ Lucky Jack’s
This weekly showcase has an especially strong lineup this week, with sets from Roy Wood Jr. (This Is Not Happening), Sal Vulcano (Impractical Jokers), Dan St. Germain (Comedy Central Roast of Rob Lowe), Giulia Rozzi (Girl Code), and Diego Lopez.
Jeff Beck @ Capitol Theatre
Having been on tour with Bad Company’s Paul Rodgers and Heart’s Ann Wilson, guitar great Jeff Beck plays this headlining show on his own.
Springsteen on Broadway
The Boss continues his sold-out “Springsteen on Broadway” run at the Walter Kerr Theatre, which has now been extended through December. At these shows, Bruce is giving fans shows “that are as personal and as intimate as possible.”
