What’s going on Wednesday?
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight’s shows, but here are some highlights…
Deafheaven, This Will Destroy You, Emma Ruth Rundle @ Warsaw
The great black metal/post-rock blenders Deafheaven are touring with two openers who are well-matched with Deafheaven’s post-rock side. This Will Destroy You have been at it for a while and probably even influenced Deafheaven a bit, and Emma Ruth Rundle is one of the better metal-related singer/songwriters around right now. Postponed from last night due to the storm.
Tortoise, Little Black Egg, Tara Jane O’Neil @ Le Poisson Rouge
Post-rock icons Tortoise released their first album in seven years, The Catastrophist, in 2016 and are now returning to NYC for a couple more shows. Openers are good here as well with Little Black Egg (aka Georgia Hubley of Yo La Tengo) and noise-folk singer Tara Jane O’Neil.
Green Day, Against Me! @ Barclays Center
Say what you will about Green Day’s recent music, but their early/mid ’90s records hold up well and are more influential than ever. The live shows are also still totally a blast, and fired-up openers Against Me! make this show even more worth catching.
The Shins @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
The Shins’ new album Heartworms was just released and James Mercer and the band are in NYC for two special, intimate celebratory shows, this being the first. Sold out.
Phil Lesh & Friends @ The Capitol Theatre
There are a handful of Grateful Dead-related bands around right now, and Phil Lesh & Friends are one of the best. Phil and his rotating lineup — which for these shows is vocalist Joan Osborne, guitarists Stanley Jordan and John Kadlecik, keyboardist/multi-instrumentalist Jason Crosby and drummer Mark Levy — do a lot of justice to the Dead classics. Plus, it’s a chance to see Phil sing. Tonight’s their first of three Cap shows this week.
‘EXO Sessions’ w/ Hisham Bharoocha (Soft Circle), Sophia Brous, Shahzad Ismaily, Marc Ribot, Greg Saunier, and more!, Dave Harrington @ Nublu
“EXO-TECH present a month of exceptionally crafted improvisational evenings of sonic interplay” with a host of very talented musicians.
Art Garfunkel @ City Winery
One half of legendary duo Simon & Garfunkel, Art plays this intimate show tonight.
