What’s going on Wednesday?
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight’s shows, but here are some highlights…
Snoop Dogg @ Gramercy Theatre
Snoop Dogg hits NYC tonight in support of his new album I Wanna Thank Me, so expect some stuff from that, but he’ll surely play the classics too.
Rufus Wainwright @ Alice Tully Hall
Rufus Wainwright plays Lincoln Center’s “American Songbook” series tonight, where he’ll perform “songs that have shaped him as an artist,” and preview material from his forthcoming Mitchell Froom-produced album.
Algiers (in-store) @ Rough Trade
Algiers celebrate the release of their new album, There is No Year, tonight at this in-store where they’ll play a few songs and sign records. You’ll need to buy a copy of the album at Rough Trade for entry.
Bad Waitress, Castle Rat, Old Lady @ Mercury Lounge
Toronto punks Bad Waitress have toured with Fucked Up, L7 and Rise Against and are set to release a new album this year. Get a live preview tonight.
Hachiku @ Trans-Pecos
Anika Ostendorf was born in Detroit, raised in Germany and now, after some time in London, makes bedroom dreampop as Hachiku in Melbourne. That grobe-trotting has made for more worldly pop, and her songs have a homespun feel that is both intimate and magical, assured and hard to pigeonhole. Currently on tour with Courtney Barnett (who signed her to her Milk label), Hachiku plays this headline show tonight that’s free with RSVP.
ESCAPE-ISM, Chyna Wyte @ Union Pool
Whether he’s backed by a band, like with Nation of Ulysses and The Make-Up, or singing to a cheap cassette player (as he does with ESCAPE-ISM), Ian Svenonius is always worthing seeing. There’s nobody else like him. Tonight’s a free show, too.
WNYC’s Ask Me Another w/ Ben Sinclair @ Bell House
This live taping of Ophira Eisenberg’s popular comedy quiz radio show / podcast features High Maintenance co-creator (and star) Ben Sinclair.
Oshun @ NYU – 370 Jay Street
One of NYC’s best-kept secrets, NYC neo-soul band OSHUN play a free Dr. Martens-presented show tonight.
You can also find quality entertainment on almost any night of the week at: Barbès bar and performance space in Park Slope, LunÀtico in Bed Stuy, Nublu in the East Village, Blue Note jazz club in the West Village, The Stone in multiple locations, Comedy Cellar in the West Village, and Q.E.D. comedy club in Astoria.
