What’s going on Wednesday?
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight’s shows, but here are some highlights…
Julia Jacklin, Black Belt Eagle Scout @ Bowery Ballroom
Australian indie rocker Julia Jacklin released her great sophomore album Crushing earlier this year, which sees her expanding upon her folky debut in more musically diverse and lyrically powerful directions. She brings her tour to NYC for sold-out shows at Rough Trade tonight and Bowery Ballroom tomorrow, and it’s worth catching Black Belt Eagle Scout at these shows too.
Injury Reserve @ Elsewhere
Experimental hip hop trio Injury Reserve are gearing up to release their anticipated debut album on Loma Vista in May, but first they’re playing this small, sold-out, pre-release show in NYC tonight. As we witnessed at SXSW, their live show is very, very good.
Arc Iris, Odetta Hartman @ C’mon Everybody
Local chamber pop band are in residency at C’mon Everybody this month, and tonight’s guest is a very exciting one: folk singer Odetta Hartman, who released the very good Old Rock-Hounds Never Die last year.
Dave Hause, Chris Cresswell, The Ramoms @ Rough Trade
Punk frontman turned singer/songwriter Dave Hause released his heartland rockin’ new album Kick earlier this month, and tonight his tour hits NYC.
Action Bronson, Mayhem Lauren @ The Wellmont Theater
Queens rapper Action Bronson is on the road supporting his 2018 album White Bronco, and while there’s no NYC show, he hits NJ tonight and Long Island next week. His frequent collaborator and fellow Queens rapper Meyhem Lauren opens.
Valley Maker, Tomberlin @ The Park Church Co-Op
Atmospheric, folky indie rockers Valley Maker are headlining this show at the gorgeous Park Church Co-Op, and if you’re going, we recommend showing up early for their Saddle Creek-signed tourmate Tomberlin, whose At Weddings is one of the more promising indie singer/songwriter debuts in recent memory.
Degreaser, Chorizo, Prison @ Max Fish
It’s a good night of garage punk at LES mainstay Max Fish, with super-lound Aussie ex-pats Degreaser, Chorizo (featuring OJ from X-Ray Eyeballs) and Prison which is a new band from Paul Major of Endless Boogie.
Girlpool, Hatchie, Claud @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
With this year’s What Chaos is Imaginary, Girlpool went from stripped down folk to a much bigger sound, incorporating synths, drum machines and shoegazy sounds. Tonight’s show is with dreampop act Hatchie who at times sounds a little like The Cocteau Twins.
Aaron Dilloway + Lucrecia Dalt @ Union Pool
Improvisational musician and Wolf Eyes founder Aaron Dillowy collaborates with ambient musician Lucrecia Dalt for a night of intense electronics.
