What’s going on Friday?
Drake, Migos @ Barclays Center
The superstar rap combo of Drake and Migos are in the midst of a seven-show NYC run, three of which go down Labor Day Weekend. So far, guest appearances have included Cardi B and Tory Lanez. Will anyone join them at these shows?
Shonen Knife, The U.S. Americans @ Brooklyn Bowl
Osaka, Japan’s Shonen Knife has been making punk rock with a naive charm since 1981, a sound that made fans out of Sonic Youth and Nirvana. They remain a whole lot of fun.
The Juan Maclean, Amtrac (DJ Sets) @ Elsewhere Rooftop
Elsewhere’s rooftop was an instant hit when it opened the summer and is always a good place to hang, even moreso when you add a DJ set from DFA artist Juan Maclean to the mix.
Hether Fortune (solo), Planning For Burial, Shadow Age @ Elsewhere Zone One
Hether Fortune put her band Wax Idols on ice earlier this week (and canceled the tour) but is still playing this Brooklyn show tonight, solo. Likewise, Planning for Burial will also be playing “a quieter, intimate version of his set.”
The Austerity Program, Faking, sewingneedle, Nonagon, Huh, Risk/Reward, Language, Husbandry, The Milford @ Mercury Lounge
NYC post-hardcore/noise rock vets The Austerity Program finally released their long-awaited sophomore album in 2014, and they’ve been going strong since then. Catch them on their home turf this Labor Day Weekend.
As always, Labor Day Weekend means massive EDM festival Electric Zoo returns to Randall’s Island. Alongside huge names like Marshmello, Martin Garrix, Kaskade, Tiesto and Alessio, there’s cool stuff like Anna Lunoe, UNIIQU3, Destructo, Justin Martin, Pete Tong, Shiba San, Chris Liebing b2b Dubfire, AC Slater, Chris Lorenzo, Redlight, Matthias Tanzman, and more.
Springsteen on Broadway
The Boss continues his sold-out “Springsteen on Broadway” run at the Walter Kerr Theatre, which runs through December. At these shows, Bruce is giving fans shows “that are as personal and as intimate as possible.”
