You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Record Store Day Black Friday
It’s not quite as big as the Record Store Day that happens in April, but the now annual RSD Black Friday does offer a bunch of exclusive, limited edition releases, including a 25th anniversary edition of Type O Negative’s Bloody Kisses, the Emmet Otter’s Jugband Christmas soundtrack, a reissue of Talking Heads’ Remain in Light, and more. You can find RSD Black Friday titles at your local independent record store (Rough Trade in Brooklyn will have the most stuff). We have some recommendations for things to pick up.
Dipset @ The Apollo
Cam’ron, Juelz Santana, Jim Jones, and Freekey Zekey are officially set to release their long-awaited third Dipset album — their first in 14 years — Diplomatic Ties on Thanksgiving, and the album’s early singles have them sounding just like the old days. Once it’s out, the Harlem group with celebrate with a show at their hometown’s historic Apollo Theater.
Bob Dylan and His Band @ Beacon Theatre
Bob Dylan needs no introduction, and it’s truly a treat that he still performs as frequently as he does over half a century into his career. He begins a seven-night run at NYC’s Beacon Theatre on Friday that also includes a Thanksgiving Weekend show on Saturday and then picks up again during the week.
The Menzingers, Tiny Moving Parts, Daddy Issues @ Brooklyn Steel
Scranton/Philly punks The Menzingers always put on a hell of a show and always get the crowd bouncing and raising their fists and yelling along, so seeing them should be a pretty great way to re-energize yourself after overstuffing yourself on Thanksgiving and tiring yourself out from too much Black Friday shopping. Both openers are worth catching too.
Crowbar, Internal Bleeding, Carcosa, Locus Mortis @ Amityille Music Hall
New Orleans sludge greats Crowbar have been working on a new album for 2019, and while most details on that are still being kept under wraps, they’re staying busy touring. They’re about to begin a tour opening for Killswitch Engage, and they’re touring opening for Corrosion of Conformity in 2019, but first they’re playing this one-off headlining show on Long Island. It’s just a quick train ride away from the city (or conveniently close to home if you’re back visiting family on the Island for Thanksgiving), and Crowbar’s killer live show is worth the commute.
Death From Above, Le Butcherettes @ Elsewhere
Though they dropped the “1979” from their name a while back, the Canadian dancepunk duo are revisiting those crazy days of 2002 by playing their debut EP in full, plus other favorites.
Marco Benevento, WOLF! ft. Scott Metzger @ Brooklyn Bowl
Two acts that are staples in the jam world but have some crossover with indie rock too, Marco Benevento and WOLF! ft. Scott Metzger, are doing a two-night stand at Brooklyn Bowl. This is night one.
The Dirty Nil, Dead Soft, Stove @ Mercury Lounge
Canadian punks The Dirty Nil recently released their sophomore album Master Volume, and as fun as their albums are, their animated live show is where the Nil really shine.
