What’s going on Wednesday?
Saint Etienne play ‘Good Humor’ @ Bowery Ballroom
Saint Etienne’s 1998 album Good Humor was a change of pace for the UK trio, which found them decamping to Sweden to work with Cardigans producer Tore Johansson and eschewing keyboards in favor of live instruments. Armed with the same great band who backed them last year, Saint Etienne are celebrating the album’s 20th anniversary by playing it in full and this is the first night of the tour (and they play Brooklyn on Thursday).
Phil Lesh & Terrapin Family Band w/ Nicki Bluhm & Eric Krasno @ Central Park SummerStage
The Grateful Dead’s Phil Lesh is back in town for three NYC-area shows, beginning with a return to Central Park SummerStage tonight. He’ll be joined by Nicki Bluhm and Lettuce/Soulive’s Eric Krasno.
PUP, Worriers @ Mercury Lounge
Canadian punks PUP said earlier this year that they finished a new album, and then they announced this intimate one-off which sold out quickly. Maybe they’ll be using the opportunity to preview new stuff. If you’re going, don’t miss local openers Worriers.
Wooing, Caged Animals, Toby Goodshank @ Rose Gold
Caged Animals are celebrating the release of their new album, Escape Artist, with a residency at Rose Gold every Wednesday in September.
Everything is Terrible @ Gramercy Theatre
Demented minds of cut-and-paste video collective Everything is Terrible return to NYC for one more go-round with their The Great Satan show which pulls footage from 2,000 satanic panic, religious kook, and D-horror VHS tapes. Plus: a pyramid made entirely of VHS copies of Jerry Maguire.
Springsteen on Broadway
The Boss continues his sold-out “Springsteen on Broadway” run at the Walter Kerr Theatre, which runs through December. At these shows, Bruce is giving fans shows “that are as personal and as intimate as possible.”
