You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
The Black Lips, Quintron & Miss Pussycat, Wooing @ Bowery Ballroom
It's a killer double bill of southern-fried garage rock with the wild men of The Black Lips and the party-forward Quintron & Miss Pussycat.
Sonny & The Sunsets, Kelley Stoltz, Flasyd @ The Bell House
San Francisco represents in Brooklyn tonight with Sonny & the Sunsets and Kelley Stoltz (who hasn't played NYC in years). Kelley will be playing in the Sunsets who will back him for his set. It's all in the family.
Xylouris White @ Joe’s Pub
Cretan lute player George Xylouris and Australian drummer Jim White (Dirty Three) make folk music but there’s a definitely punk streak in there.
Drugdealer, The Apple Bonkers, Dougie Poole @ Market Hotel
Drugdealer's new album, Raw Honey, is out today and is a dive into deep-shag '70s yacht rock. This is a special NYC release show.
Urochromes, Brandy, Golden Pelicans, Foster Care @ The Glove
Massachusetts band Urochromes make ridiculously catchy mutant punk and should be previewing songs from their upcoming debut LP. It's a great bill for garage punk fans, with Brooklyn's Brandy (who are celebrating a new 7") and Foster Care, and Orlando, FL's Golden Pelicans.
MorMor @ Baby's All Right
MorMor has been on the rise thanks to an EP and some singles of soulful, driving indie rock that's immediately appealing and not quite like anything else out there right now. Now he's on tour, and tonight's NYC show is sold out.
Nick Mason's Saucerful of Secrets @ Beacon Theatre
Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason’s band Saucerful of Secrets perform material from the classic Syd Barett period (The Piper at the Gates of Dawn and A Saucerful of Secrets), and though Roger Waters and David Gilmour’s shows may be bigger spectacles, this tour — which is the band’s first in North America — is your best chance to see a show dedicated to that era. Mason’s band includes Spandau Ballet’s Gary Kemp, Lee Harris of Ian Dury & the Blockheads, composer Dom Beken (who frequently collaborated with Floyd keyboardist Rick Wright) and Guy Pratt, who became Floyd’s bass player in the post-Waters era. This is their second of two Beacon Theatre shows.
ANOHNI's 'She Who Saw Beautiful Things' @ The Kitchen
There are a few ANOHNI-related events happening at The Kitchen, including this run of ANOHNI's new theatre piece, She Who Saw Beautiful Things, "a two-act, absurdist and surrealist drama containing music, painting, video, and performance by some of NYC’s greatest luminaries, including Laurie Anderson, Charles Atlas, Matteah Baim, Michael Cavadias, Tom Cole, Johanna Constantine, Eliza Douglas, Connie Fleming, Scott Jackson, Lola Niasse, Lorraine O’Grady, Kembra Pfahler, and Marti Wilkerson." It runs tonight, Saturday, and Monday. On Sunday, there will be a benefit performance and cast party with performances by ANOHNI, Laurie Anderson, and Hal Willner.
Kool Keith @ Rocks Off Cruise
Abstract rap legend Kool Keith remains ridiculously prolific and in fine form. Tonight, he takes his show on a boat.
Hatebreed, Obituary, Cro-Mags, Terror, Fit For An Autopsy @ Playstation Theater
Metalcore vets Hatebreed are celebrating their 25th anniversary on this tour, and there are some killer support acts lined up, including death metal legends Obituary and crossover thrash legends Cro-Mags.
ionnalee, Allie X @ Elsewhere Hall
ionnalee, the current moniker of Swedish art pop artist Jonna Lee (also known as iamamiwhoami), is gearing up to release her new album REMEMBER THE FUTURE in May. Having played as a member of Röyksopp’s live band for the past three years, ionnalee is now currently on her lengthiest North American tour since adopting the ionnalee moniker.
The Movielife, Travis Shettel (of Piebald) @ House of Independents
Long Island melodic hardcore greats The Movielife are revisiting two of their best and most-loved releases, 2001’s The Movielife Has A Gambling Problem EP and 2003’s Forty Hour Train Back to Penn, and playing them in full on this tour. Making the tour even more exciting is an opening set from Piebald frontman Travis Shettel. They played Brooklyn back in March, and now play Asbury Park tonight and Long Island tomorrow.
The Juice Crew ft. Big Daddy Kane, Biz Markie, Craig G, Kool G Rap, Masta Ace & Roxanne Shante @ Sony Hall
It's a reunion of Queensbridge hip hop collective The Juice Crew who will be cold chillin' tonight.
Tommy Genesis, Amrit, Chynna @ Elsewhere Zone One
Singer/rapper Tommy Genesis is gaining buzz for her unique flows and creative, bouncy production, as heard on her debut album which dropped late last year.
