What’s going on Wednesday?
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight’s shows, but here are some highlights…
Bryan Ferry, Sophie Auster @ The Capitol Theatre
Fans of Roxy Music’s 1982 album Avalon probably already have tickets for this tour where Bryan will focus on that album, but his setlist will also feature other Roxy and solo favorites.
Korn, Alice In Chains, Underoath, Ho99o9 @ PNC Bank Arts Center
Nu metal OGs Korn are gearing up to release their new album The Nothing, and they’re supporting it on a co-headlining tour with grunge/alt-metal vets Alice In Chains. If you’re going tonight, we also recommend showing up early for industrial rap duo Ho99o9, whose live shows get pretty crazy.
Lovelorn, Don Devore, Arch of Love, Throgmortal @ Saint Vitus
Lovelorn (the new project of former Creepoid members Anna Troxell and Patrick Troxell) and Arch of Love (Chelsea Brennan and former Pains of Being Pure at Heart member Chris Schackerman) are playing shows together, and this one is extra exciting thanks to the inclusion of Don Devore (Ink and Dagger, Collapsing Scenery, etc).
SeeYouSpaceCowboy, Poor Choice, Tourniquet, Boundaries, Rain of Salvation, Migraine @ Amityville Music Hall
SeeYouSpaceCowboy have been partially responsible for spearheading a sass revival within the hardcore scene, and they’re gearing up to release their very anticipated proper debut full-length, The Correlation Between Entrance And Exit Wounds, on Pure Noise in December. They’re also set to open Knocked Loose’s tour, but first they’ll play some headlining shows this week. There are a lot of openers on this show, including Connecticut’s Boundaries, who released the solid My Body In Bloom EP earlier this year.
Chuck Leavell @ Gramercy Theatre
Chuck Leavell is the keyboardist and musical director for the Rolling Stones, and was a member of the Allman Brothers Band in the ’70s. He’s spending his night off from the Stones tour to play his own show and it’s also streaming live at 8:30 PM via Relix.
Toby Driver, Otay:Onii, a&h @ The Safari Room at El Cortez
Kayo Dot are gearing up to release a new album, but meanwhile frontman Toby Driver plays a solo show in his hometown tonight.
Bon Iver listening party @ Rough Trade
Bon Iver’s anticipated fourth album i, i comes out at the end of the month, but you can hear it early at this free listening party. Doors open at 7 PM.
Howlin’ Rain, Ryley Walker @ Brooklyn Bowl
West Coast psych band and lovers of ’70s rock, Howlin’ Rain stop in Brooklyn on their way to the Huilicha East festival. Ryley Walker makes this a very appealing double bill.
Molly Burch, RF Shannon @ Rough Trade
With a smoky croon and a twangy sound, Molly Burch makes dreampop with a late-’50s country twist.
Barry Manilow @ The Lunt-Fontanne Theatre
Born and raised in Williamsburg (take that, Karen O), Barry went on to write the songs that made the whole world sing (even if he didn’t write “I Write the Songs”). Like Morrissey before him, he’s doing a short run at the La Fontanne.
Todd Barry Has Guests w/ Joe Machi, Janeane Garofalo, Shane Torres, Marina Franklin @ Littlefield
Todd Barry’s big break came as a teenager when David Letterman called him live on the air as part of a Viewer Mail segment, and his acerbic wit has stayed razor-sharp ever since. He chose tonight’s lineup of comedians which is very solid.
