You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Panorama 2018 @ Randall's Island
This year's Panorama fest kicks off on Randall's Island today with performance by The Weeknd, Father John Misty, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Migos, The War on Drugs, Yaeji, and more.
Sleep, Dylan Carson @ Brooklyn Steel
It would be exciting that reunited stoner metal legends Sleep were in town no matter what, but it’s even more exciting now because the band recently released their first album in 15+ years, and it’s really good. Tonight’s their second of two Brooklyn Steel shows this week.
Buster Poindexter (David Johansen) @ City Winery
David Johansen dons his tux and lounge lizard persona Buster Poindexter for a hot hot hot evening.
Bush, The Cult, Stone Temple Pilots @ Jones Beach
If you love '90s alt rock, with a little late-'80s alt rock for good measure, this triple bill of riffmongers will keep you knee-deep in grunge-era hits.
Denzel Curry @ Market Hotel
Florida rapper Denzel Curry just dropped the highly anticipated TA13OO, his first full length for Loma Vista, which already feels like one of the year's most exciting rap albums. He's getting bigger every second, but today he celebrates the new album at this very small release show. It's free but you did have to RSVP. Should be nuts.
Tinariwen, Cheick Hamala Diabate @ Prospect Park Bandshell
A band of literal rebels from Mali who met in refugee camps over 30 years ago, Tinariwen play a kind of guitar-based Tuareg music that has enough in common with American blues rock that it caught on in the Western World. Their 2017 album Elwan features appearances from Kurt Vile, Mark Lanegan, and more. This is a free BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! show.
The Black Lips, Surfbort @ Rocks Off Concert Cruises
The Black Lips and Surfbort aboard a boat...shenanigans will most definitely ensue.
Frank Turner, Laura Stevenson @ Saint Vitus
British folk punk Frank Turner has been on tour with his band all year supporting this year's Be More Kind, but now he's taking the time to do a few small acoustic solo shows, and it's always great to see Frank in an intimate way like this too. Making it even more exciting, fellow punk singer/songwriter Laura Stevenson opens. He hits Vitus tonight and tomorrow, and also does a matinee aboard a Rocks Off Cruise tomorrow.
Glen Hansard @ The Capitol Theatre
Glen Hansard, he of The Frames and Once fame, has been touring all year support of his new album, Between Two Shores.
White Mystery, The Giraffes, Max Pain and The Groovies @ The Safari Room at El Cortez
It's a night of heavy psych riffage and perhaps Cadillac Nachos when Chicago duo White Mystery and Brooklyn hard rock vets The Giraffes.
Howlin' Rain, Chris Forsyth & the Solar Motel Band, Mountain Movers @ WFMU Monty Hall
New Haven, CT’s Mountain Movers have been laying down heavy, hazy psych for a decade now, most recently on last year’s self-titled LP for Trouble in Mind. They play tonight with the jammy Chris Forsyth and headliners Howlin' Rain.
Jenny Lewis, Cut Worms @ White Eagle Hall
Fresh off opening for Beck, Jenny headlines this Jersey City show where she'll hopefully be playing some new tunes, as her last album was four years ago. If you're going tonight, opener Cut Worms (who makes Everly Brothers style pop) is worth catching.
Springsteen on Broadwaye
The Boss continues his sold-out “Springsteen on Broadway” run at the Walter Kerr Theatre, which has now been extended through December. At these shows, Bruce is giving fans shows “that are as personal and as intimate as possible.”
