What’s going on Wednesday?
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight’s shows, but here are some highlights…
Heilung @ Webster Hall
Metal-friendly Nordic dark folk band Heilung — think Wardruna or Dead Can Dance — released their sophomore album Furtha in 2019 on Season of Mist, and now the band — whose members are spread across Norway, Denmark, and Germany — are on their first-ever North American tour. This is their second of two sold-out Webster Hall shows.
Bob Mould, Will Johnson @ Iridium (2 shows)
Bob Mould’s songs sound just as good solo electric as they do when he’s playing with a band, and they’re almost just as loud. Tonight’s shows are will onetime Centro-Matic frontman Will Johnson.
Peel Dream Magazine, Patti, Very Nice Massage @ Baby’s All Right
Named in part after legendary BBC DJ John Peel, Brooklyn’s Peel Dream Magazine embody that indie spirit, making a droney, dreamy sound that hits the middle of the My Bloody Valentine/Stereolab/Broadcast venn diagram. Tonight’s their winter tour kickoff.
The Austerity Program, Statiqbloom, Fliege, Member @ Saint Vitus
NYC post-hardcore/noise rock staples The Austerity Program released their new album Bible Songs 1 last year, and tonight they play a hometown show with industrial duo StatiqBloom and more.
Frances Quinlan art gallery and Q&A @ Selina Chelsea

Just ahead of joining Calexico & Iron and Wine on tour, Grammy nominee Madison Cunningham plays her second of two sold-out shows at LPR tonight.
