What’s going on Monday? (Modern Baseball/Foxing, Tinashe, yMusic/DM Stith, Eugene Mirman, Cold Skin, more)
Modern Baseball at BK Bazaar in September (more by Mimi Hong)
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Modern Baseball, Knuckle Puck, Foxing, Crying, Somos @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
This tour is loaded with cool stuff from the lyrical, youthful Modern Baseball, to the delicately arranged and cathartic Foxing, to the gameboy-fueled pop punks Crying, to guitar slingers Somos. This is the second of two NYC shows.
Tinashe, Main Girl @ Highline Ballroom
Tinashe's debut album, Aquarius, was one of the year's best alt-R&B records, and its placement on several year-end lists has been deserved. She was last in NYC for Power 105.1 Powerhouse but tonight she returns to headline her own show.
Cold Skin, Divorce Money, Outside World, Red Sea @ Silent Barn
This is a cool bill all around with Tampa's surfy hardcore band Cold Skin, Atlanta's tropical/synth poppy Red Sea, punky indie rockers Outside World, and Beach Fossils-related hardcore band Divorce Money.
yMusic, DM Stith, Battle Trance @ Baby's All Right
A few of the members of indie/classical group yMusic just wrapped up a BAM run backing Gabriel Kahane, and tonight they play their own show for the New Amsterdam Presents Winter Benefit. Also on the bill is DM Stith (who, like yMusic, has worked with Sufjan Stevens and My Brightest Diamond) and the sort-of tUnE-yArDs-related Battle Trance.
Wyatt Cenac @ Littlefield
It's a holiday edition Wyatt Cenac's weekly comedy show, with Ari Shaffir, Dan St. Germain, Jen Kirkman, and Adrienne Iapalucci on hand for good cheer.
Eugene Mirman, Janeane Garofalo, Jen Kirkman, Gary Gulman @ Union Hall
For another holiday comedy option within walking distance of Littlefield that ALSO features Jen Kirkman, stop by Union Hall for Mehran Khaghani's show -- the rest of the line-up is pretty great.
