You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Dave Chappelle, Trevor Noah @ Radio City Music Hall
Dave Chappelle's 16-show Radio City residency has had some pretty massive guests (both announced and unannounced). Tonight's is current Daily Show host Trevor Noah, who's big enough to headline his own Radio City show, which he'll do in 2018.
Mary J. Blige, Lalah Hathaway @ Ford Amphitheater at Coney Island Boardwalk
R&B/soul great Mary J Blige recently released her 13th album, Strength of a Woman, which features Kanye West, Quavo of Migos, Missy Elliott, DJ Khaled, Kaytranada, and more. Tonight she brings her tour to NYC for a big Coney Island show.
DJ Snoopadelic (aka Snoop Dogg) @ B.B. King's
Fresh off releasing the very old school G-Funk sounding Neva Left, Snoop Dogg DJs NYC as DJ Snoopadelic.
Four Tet @ Analog BKNY
Four Tet has been a maker of great IDM, folktronica, and other electronic-subgenre albums for a very long time now, and he always brings the party to his DJ sets too.
Golden Suits, Cataldo, Cape Francis @ C'mon Everybody
Seattle indie pop band Cataldo have been at it for over a decade, and they recently released their sixth album Keepers (which features guest vocals by Ben Gibbard).
Craig Finn (of The Hold Steady) (in conversation) @ (le) poisson rouge
Craig Finn has upcoming shows both as a solo artist and with The Hold Steady, but tonight he'll be in conversation with Rabbi Dan Ain and Relix’s Mike Greenhaus for the venue's Friday Night Jam.
Pill, B Boys, Patio @ ALPHAVILLE
If you dig post-punk and current bands inspired by it, it's hard to go wrong with skronky, sax-fueled Pill, and the Wire-y sounds of B Boys.
John Maus, Gary War @ Baby's All Right
It's been six years since cult artist John Maus released We Must Become the Pitiless Censors of Ourselves. We have heard stirrings of a new record, but we do know this for sure: he's on the road playing with a full band. Tonight's show is sold out which is ahead of his appearances at PS1 Warm-Up and Hudson's Basilica Soundscape.
EZTV, Ornament, Lina Tullgren @ Mercury Lounge
Hailing from Maine, Lina Tullgren brings a dark, moody air to her songs and arrangements that gives them an unsettling edge that also draws you in. This is her first of two NYC shows this weekend with Captured Tracks labelmates EZTV.
Ex Eye, Dan Friel @ Saint Vitus Bar
Saxophonist Colin Stetson (Arcade Fire, Bon Iver, etc) formed spasmodic, experimental avant-metal band Ex Eye with drummer Greg Fox (Liturgy), guitarist Toby Summerfield, and bassist/keyboardist Shahzad Ismaily and released their debut via Relapse earlier this summer.
Mark Lanegan Band @ Gramercy Theatre
With that pleasingly weathered baritone, Mark Lanegan is instantly recognizable whether it's on Screaming Trees or solo records. His latest album, Gargoyle, was released in April.
Denitia, House of Feelings LIVE (ft. Shamir), NOIA, Mr. Twin Sister (DJ), Working Women (DJ) @ Trans-Pecos
Brooklyn dance party/radio show/musical group House of Feelings (led by Matty Fasano and Joe Fassler) celebrate the release of their new EP Last Chance tonight with help from Shamir who features on the record.
Sheila E @ BB King Blues Club
Former Prince protege and formidable drummer Sheila E still leads the glamorous life.
The Dirty Dozen Brass Band @ Rocks Off Concert Cruise
Celebrating 40 years together, New Orleans' Dirty Dozen Brass Band have collaborated with Modest Mouse, Widespread Panic, Elivs Costello and other...but have they ever played on a boat? Yes, but here's another chance to see that happen.
