Glen Hansard

You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...

Glen Hansard, Richard Thompson @ Kings Theatre
Glen Hansard released new solo album, Didn't He Ramble, earlier this fall which was produced by frequent collaborator Doveman, but expect songs from throughout his career (The Frames, The Swell Season, and Once). Tonight's show has a killer opener: folk and guitar legend Richard Thompson.

Vanessa Carlton, Joshua Hyslop @ City Winery
It's been over a decade since Vanessa Carlton was inescapable on MTV/mainstream radio thanks to "A Thousand Miles," "Ordinary Day" and "White Houses," but for this year's Liberman (on Dine Alone Records) she's toned down the radio-ready production and is arguably a stronger songwriter than ever. Tonight's the first of two release shows.

Field Trip, Dreamcrusher, Emily Yacina, The Shacks @ Baby's All Right
Alex G collaborator Emily Yacina is set to release her Soft Stuff EP in December. She recently revealed the gentle pop of lead single "Loser."

Okay-Kaya, Aerial East, Kelsey Lu @ Mercury Lounge
Terrible Records associate Okay-Kaya makes folky, airy, bare-bones songs that should sound nice on a brisk fall night.

Night Train w/ Wyatt Cenac @ Littlefield
All aboard Wyatt Cenac's weekly comedy cavalcade, this week featuring funny guests D.C. Benny, Nore Davis, Joel Kim Booster, Emma Willmann, Donwill (DJ set), and more.
