What’s going on Wednesday?
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight’s shows, but here are some highlights…
At the Drive-In, Le Butcherettes @ Terminal 5
After a brief reunion in 2012, post-hardcore greats At the Drive-In are now in it for the long haul (though without Jim Ward), with their first album since 2000 coming out this year and many tour dates.
Wilco, Jake Xerxes Fussell @ Beacon Theater
Wilco conclude their four-night run at Beacon. The first three shows kept the setlistis pretty varied, so who knows what to expect for the finale.
Norah Jones @ The Bell House
Last year, Norah Jones released Day Breaks on Blue Note, which was a return to traditional-sounding vocal jazz. Tonight she plays a benefit for The Child Life Program In The Pediatrics Department Of The Brooklyn Hospital Center. Tickets are $100.
Joan Shelley @ Lincoln Center (American Songbook)
The great folk singer Joan Shelley just played a couple NYC shows opening for Wilco, whose Jeff Tweedy is producing and playing on her upcoming LP. Tonight she plays her own NYC show as part of the American Songbook series.
Nails, Toxic Holocaust, Gatecreeper, Blame God @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
There was speculation last year that hardcore crushers Nails were breaking up, but luckily for us they are not. They’re back in NYC tonight with a pretty awesome selection of openers.
Chris Farren, Katie Ellen, Timeshares, Early Riser @ Saint Vitus
Chris Farren is one half of Antarctigo Vespucci with Jeff Rosenstock, the singer of Fake Problems, and also an accomplished solo artist. Tonight’s NYC show (which was moved from Shea Stadium) is with Katie Ellen (ex-Chumped), twangy Long Island punks Timeshares, and Early Riser.
‘EXO Sessions’ w/ Stuart D. Bogie, Sophie Brous, Brian Chase, Trevor Dunn, Greg Fox, Nick Zinner & more @ Nublu
The recurring Exo-Tech live show has a revolving list of musicians playing improvisational sets with the goal of “[exploring] the intersections between collective improvisation and pop song composition, as much influenced by modern pop and rnb as by free jazz, avant garde improvisation and film music.”
Tennis, Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever @ Bowery Ballroom
Known for having written their first album on a year-long sailing trip, husband-and-wife duo Tennis just released new album Yours Conditionally, which finds them still exploring yacht rock sounds. Australian tourmates Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever are on their first visit to America and just played SXSW (including an impressive set at one of our day parties).
‘The Remedy’ w/ DJ Esco, Just Blaze, Powers Pleasant, DJ Wavy, Quiana Parks @ Highline Ballroom
Just Blaze and Move Forward Music’s recurring ‘The Remedy’ party returns tonight, and this one has DJ Esco, coolest DJ on the motherfucking planet.
Palehound, Leapling, Haybaby, Tall Friend @ Sunnyvale
Palehound recently signed to the venerable Polyvinyl Records, and she’ll release her sophomore album on the label this summer. Maybe she’ll play some new songs tonight.
‘Concert for Immigration Rights’ with Glasser, Underground System, Tigue, Elena Moon Park & Friends, Ashley Bathgate & Ljova @ Le Poisson Rouge
It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything from avant pop artist Glasser, so here’s a good chance to catch up (with proceeds going to a worthy cause).
