What’s going on Wednesday?
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight’s shows, but here are some highlights…
First Aid Kit @ Town Hall
The Swedish duo just played two weekends of ACL Fest and stop in NYC before heading home. They’ll be back for a proper tour (and another NYC show) next year when their new album is out.
Grails, Rob Noyes, Shadow Band @ Brooklyn Night Bazaar
Psychedelic post-rockers Grails returned this year with Chalice Hymnal, their first album in six years, and now they’re on their first North American tour in four years. Tonight’s show has two openers worth catchy: acoustic guitar master Rob Noyes and Mexican Summer-signed psych-folk group Shadow Band.
Nicolas Jaar, Yves Tumor @ Brooklyn Steel
Electronic musician, singer, and leader of the on-hiatus Darkside, Nicolas Jaar is on night two of his four-night Brooklyn Steel run tonight and says these will be his last NYC shows for a while. All but the fourth night are sold out.
Toadies, Local H @ Gramercy Theatre
Toadies and Local H are both underrated bands of the ’90s alt-rock era, and both still make music that’s worth hearing today, making this a very well-matched double bill.
Moon Hooch / Marco Benevento @ Bowery Ballroom
Having just wrapped up a six-night Brooklyn Bowl run as a member of Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, the highly talented Marco Benevento plays NYC with Moon Hooch tonight.
Tyler Childers, Blank Range @ Mercury Lounge
Tyler Childers recently released his debut album Purgatory, which was co-produced by Sturgill Simpson. If you dig Sturgill’s country crossover, there’s a good chance you’ll dig Tyler too.
Sugarlife, Hamish Kilgour (of The Clean), The Listeners, Baby Dollar @ Saint Vitus Bar
Avant-garde rock group Sugarlife headline this free show that also includes The Clean’s Hamish Kilgour, and more.
John Hodgman, Jean Grae @ The Bell House
Jean and John own a carnival wheel, and they write topics on the wheel, spin it, and talk about those things. Some topics have included “What Did You Dream Last Night?” “Lin-Manuel Miranda,” “Jean’s Hair,” and “John’s Privilege.”
Todd Barry, Wyatt Cenac, Josh Gondelman, Cocoon Central Dance Team, Blair Socci, Farah Brooks @ Littlefield
Blair Socci and Farah Brook host this comedy show, “Harriet,” which is also a benefit for the American Cancer Society, with a stacked lineup of talent.
Springsteen on Broadway
It’s the hottest ticket on Broadway: Bruce Springsteen playing solo at the intimate Walter Kerr Theatre, performing some of his biggest hits and telling stories about them. His show runs through February.
Nate Staniforth: Real Magic @ Union Pool
Nate Staniforth, magician, writer, traveler, and host of the Discovery Channel’s hit TV series Breaking Magic, brings his up-close and personal (and rather theatrics-free) style of prestidigitation to Brooklyn.
