What’s going on Sunday? (Baroness, Long Beard, Darlene Love, Los Lobos, Invisible Familiars & more)
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Baroness @ Rough Trade (2 PM) and Saint Vitus (8 PM)
Baroness followed up 2012's massive double album Yellow & Green with their shortest album yet, Purple. It sounds like a culmination of just about everything they've done so far, and if you're a longtime fan you're pretty much guaranteed to like it. Today they play an afternoon in-store at Rough Trade (you had to buy the album from the Rough Trade store and get a wristband) and a sold-out night show at Saint Vitus.
Long Beard, Fraternal Twin, Catholic Easter Colors, 100%, Tim Woulfe @ Silent Barn
Earlier this year, Long Beard released their debut album, Sleepwalker, a very solid mix of slowcore, indie folk, dream pop and more. Tonight's their first of three Brooklyn shows before the year ends.
Invisible Familiars @ Ace Hotel
New York singer songwriter Jared Samuel, who has played with Martha Wainwright, Sharon Jones, Cibo Matto and Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger to name a few, makes his own quirky, poppy and danceable music as Invisible Familiars. This is part of his December residency which happens every Sunday this month at Ace Hotel.
Darlene Love @ B.B. King's
As star of one of the greatest holiday albums ever made -- A Christmas Gift for You from Phil Spector -- Darlene love Christmas shows are always full of joy and good cheer.
The Macaulay Culkin Show @ Shea Stadium
It's the two-year anniversary of Brett Davis and Sally Burtnick's comedy show The Macaulay Culkin Show (which has nothing to do with the Home Alone star), and they're celebrating with guest JD Amato, Colin Burgess, John Early, Conner O'Malley, Jacqueline Novak and more.
Los Lobos @ City Winery
Legendary LA band Los Lobos begin their now-annual holiday run at City Winery tonight.
Starlee Kine, Jon Ronson, Sasheer Zamata, Aparna Nancherla, Todd Barry, Dave Hill, Jon Glaser, Maeve Higgins, David Cross @ The Bell House
This sold-out comedy fundraiser is a benefit for UNICEF, with proceeds going to children in Syria. A great lineup of talent awaits those with tickets.
The Great Christmas Mind Fuck Hosted by Taylor Moore and Jo Firestone @ Union Hall
