You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Iron Maiden, The Raven Age @ Barclays Center
Heavy metal legends Iron Maiden recently began the North & South American leg of their "Legacy of the Beast" tour, and, with no new album to support, the tour has seen Maiden sticking to a greatest hits set. They're hitting Barclays Center tonight and tomorrow.
Sebadoh, Eleanor Friedberger @ Bowery Ballroom
Having just played Central Park with Dinosaur Jr last night, Lou Barlow's other band, Sebadoh, hits Bowery Ballroom in support of the band's new album, Act Surprised. Eleanor Friedberger makes this a great double bill.
The Space Lady, Glockabelle, Nina Ryser @ Brooklyn Bazaar
Covering popular hits with her accordion on the streets of San Francisco in the late ’70s, Susan Dietrich Schneider became known as The Space Lady thanks in part to the silver helmet and wings she wore. It was when her accordion broke and she purchased a then-new Casio MT-40 keyboard, that her covers really took on an ethereal otherworldly quality and her cult outsider artist status grew.
Sasha, John Digweed @ Brooklyn Mirage
UK DJ duo Sasha & John Digweed have been a dance music force since the early '90s and became NYC club royalty with their legendary sets at Twilo.
Jeff Tweedy, Helen Gillet @ Lincoln Center/Damrosch Park Bandshell
Wilco have a new album and tour on the way, but in the meantime enjoy this free Jeff Tweedy show as part of the 2019 Lincoln Center Out of Doors Festival (he's bound to play a few Wilco songs, too).
The Get Up Kids, Great Grandpa @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Emo vets The Get Up Kids recently released their new album Problems, and it’s more in line with their 1999 fan favorite Something To Write Home About than any other album they’d done since. It’s very good stuff, and tonight’s show should be lots of fun too.
Jidenna, Anik Khan, DJ Moma Prospect Park Bandshell
After breaking through with "Classic Man," Jidenna proved he was no one-hit wonder on 2017's The Chief, and today he just returned with two new songs. Is a new album on the way? No word yet, but he plays a free BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival show tonight. Queens rapper Anik Khan's set is not to miss either.
Grim Streaker, Sadie Dupuis, Sad Baxter, Groupie, Melissa Lozada-Oliva @ Rubulad
It's a nice of punk and poetry, including local punks Grim Streaker, Speedy Ortiz singer and poet Sadie Dupuis, and more.
Loma Prieta, Jeromes Dream, Lytic @ Saint Vitus
Connecticut screamo vets Jeromes Dream recently released their first album in 18 years, and now they're supporting it on tour with a great, comparatively newer screamo band, Loma Prieta. Openers vary by date, and toight's show is with Lytic, the new band of Jamie Behar who played guitar in Saetia and played guitar and sang in Off Minor. The tour also hits Vitus again tomorrow.
Tall Juan, Las Rosas, Gustaf, Yaasss @ Market Hotel
This is a pretty great lineup of locals, with Tall Juan and Las Rosas both in the psych-garage world and Gustaf bringing a gleeful sense of mayhem.
Paul Oakenfold @ Schimanski
In the late '90s Paul Oakenfold was arguably the most well-known DJ in the world, having played Wembley, China's Great Wall and at the base of the Himalayas, and remixed just about everyone over the years.
Part Time, Gary Wilson @ The Bell House
For fans of weirdo pop, this is a dream double bill with Ariel Pink cohorts Part Time and DIY cult artist Gary Wilson.
Hannah Gadsby @ Daryl Roth Theatre
Hannah Gadsby‘s acclaimed 2018 show and Netflix special, Nanette, centered about the idea that she was quitting comedy. Which happily, is something she actually has not done. “I don’t have any other skill sets,” she joked in an announcement video on Facebook for her new stand-up show, “Douglas,” which continues its month-long NYC run tonight.
