What’s going on Wednesday?
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight’s shows, but here are some highlights…
Beastie Boys Story Told By Ad Rock & Mike D @ Kings Theatre
Expect these shows, where Mike D and Ad Rock tell stories about their time in Beastie Boys (with audio-visual accompaniment), to be similar — but different — to the “Beasties Book: Live and Direct” ones they did last year. Spike Jonze is directing these for a special to be released somewhere, sometime, TBA.
Hand Habits, Barrie, Tasha @ Bowery Ballroom
A secret weapon for Kevin Morby and Mega Bog, Meg Duffy has come into her own as Hand Habits, having just released her second album.
Songhoy Blues @ Baby’s All Right
Malian group Songhoy Blues kick off their Baby’s residency tonight — if you’ve never seen them, definitely correct this.
Mott the Hoople ’74, The Wallflowers @ Beacon Theatre
Glam vets Mott the Hoople are celebrating the 45th anniversary of their 1974 tour, and for the occasion, frontman Ian Hunter is reuniting with ’74-era members Ariel Bender and Morgan Fisher, which marks the first time the three of them have toured together since that year. Jakob Dylan’s still-active ’90s-era alt-rock band The Wallflowers open.
SSION, La’Fem Ladosha, Macy Rodman @ Elsewhere Hall
Last year, Cody Critcheloe’s dance-pop, video production, and more collective SSION released their first album in seven years, O, and it featured tons of big guests like Sky Ferreira, Roisin Murphy, Devendra Banhart, Ariel Pink, Royal Trux’s Jennifer Herrema, and more. The NYC-based band support the album with another hometown show tonight.
DonMonique, Christian Tokyo, Alicia Madison, QNA, The TK MAC Experience @ Bowery Electric
