What’s going on Wednesday?
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight’s shows, but here are some highlights…
Father John Misty, Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit, Jade Bird @ Prospect Park
For fans of folk and country-leaning indie and alternative rock, this co-headlining bill of Father John Misty and Jason Isbell is pretty amazing. Support comes from Jade Bird, who’s been on the rise lately.
Connan Mockasin @ Elsewhere HALL (Moved from Rooftop)
UPDATE: with rain in the forecast, this rooftop show has been moved to Elsewhere’s Hall and more tickets have been made available. New Zealander Connan Mockasin’s most recent album may have been a little too esoteric — even for him — but he’s always worth seeing live. Especially on a rooftop.
Billie Eilish, Denzel Curry @ Radio City Music Hall
Billie Eilish is probably the most popular breakout artist in the world right now that falls under the “alternative” umbrella, and she is using her fame to do cool things like take the comparatively underground rapper Denzel Curry (who Billie collaborated with before blowing up) out on tour with her. Tonight’s Radio City show is their second of two NYC shows.
Earth, Helms Alee @ Le Poisson Rouge
Sargent House labelmates Earth and Helms Alee are on the road together and that’s a very cool pairing. Both have great new albums out that are part metal, part non-metal, and all psychedelic, but in very different ways.
Dylan LeBlanc, Erin Rae @ Rough Trade
Louisiana singer/songwriter Dylan LeBlanc went in a more rock direction on his new album Renegade (out now on ATO), and the new look suits him well. He’s on tour now and hitting NYC tonight with Nashville singer/songwriter Erin Rae, who’s still supporting last year’s acclaimed
Putting On Airs.
Surfbort, Renata Zeiguer, Gurr, Leoniden, ORI, Yes We Mystic @ Rockwood Music Hall
Part of A2IM Indie Week this is a showcase presented by Hamburg, Germany’s Reeperbahn Festival that takes over Stage 1 & 2 at Rockwood with bands from NYC (Surfbort, Renata Zeiguer), Germany (Burr, Leoniden), Israel, Canada, and Austria. It’s free and there’s a panel discussion preceding the event with famous producers Tony Visconti and Bob Rock as well as Kate Nash and Peaches, Free!
Khruangbin, Karina Rykman @ The Capitol Theatre
Funky, jammy instrumental trio play Port Chester before hitting NYC at SummerStage.
The Lumineers @ Pioneer Works
Massively popular folk rock band The Lumineers play this benefit for Red Hook venue and arts space Pioneer Works.
Dido, Jack Savoretti @ Terminal 5
Dido is still riding high off timeless classics like “Thank You” and “White Flag,” but she’s also got a pretty solid new album out, and — perhaps most excitingly — she’s now on her first tour in 15 years.
Ariana Grande @ MSG
Ariana Grande is — without competition — the biggest and most highly acclaimed pop star in the world right now. She’s fresh off headlining Coachella and releasing two unstoppable albums, and if you care even a little bit about pop music, you probably at least have a soft spot for her recent hits. The fourth and final NYC show of her tour is tonight.
Toots & the Maytals @ Brooklyn Bowl
Reggae Legends Toots & The Maytals, who gave us such classics as “Pressure Drop,” “Sweet And Dandy” and “54-46 (That’s My Number)”, wrap up a two-night stand at Brooklyn Bowl.
Kishi Bashi, Takenobu @ Murmrr Theatre
Violinist and pop musician Kishi Bashi just released the ambitious new album Omoiyari and celebrates with this intimate show tonight.
Sea Wolf (with string quartet) @ National Sawdust
This intimate show will feature Sea Wolf backed by a string quartet, playing their 2014 album, Song Spells No.1: Cedarsmoke. This marks the first time any of the songs from the album have been performed live with a full band.
