TY SEGALL & WHITE FENCE
The low-fi dream team of Ty Segall & White Fence are back together for their first collaborative album in six years, and they'll tour the West Coast on their way to Desert Daze. Ty will be on a solo tour before that.
Dashboard Confessional recently wrapped up a tour with appealing openers Beach Slang and Kississippi, and today they announced new dates with (less appealing) co-headliners All Time Low. The dates include NYC's new Pier 17 Rooftop Concert Series.

DRAKE / MIGOS
"Walk It Talk It" and "Versace" collaborators Drake and Migos are joining forces for an arena tour this year, including four nights in NYC.
DAVE CHAPPELLE & JON STEWART
These two former Comedy Central stars will be teaming up for a few shows in June...nothing in NYC sadly (for us).
TIM HEIDECKER & GREGG TURKINGTON "ON CINEMA"
On their movie review show On Cinema, Tim Heidecker and Gregg Turkington's personal lives often take on a larger role than actually reviewing movies. See it unfold in person at West Coast dates in June and East Coast dates in October.
