What’s going on Monday?
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Bonnie Prince Billy, Jonathan Richman @ Town Hall
A pretty amazing double bill of singer-songwriters who don't really need anything besides a guitar to keep you entertained. However, Will Oldham will have Emmett Kelly (Ty Segall’s Freedom Band) backing him, while Jonathan will have longtime drummer Tommy Larkins along for the ride.
Moses Sumney @ Public Records
Moses Sumney released part one of his highly anticipated double album græ last month and the rest arrives May 15 via Jagjaguwar, and the whole thing is shaping up to be one of the most monumental albums released this year. Before part two arrives, Moses will perform the album in full at this free, intimate show. RSVP is required but entry is first come, first served.
The Mystery Lights, The Ar-Kaics, Miranda and The Beat, Flasyd @ Baby's All Right
If you like garage rock with a little bit of soul, it’s a great night at Baby’s with the second of a two night stand for The Mystery Lights and The Ar-Kaics who are both signed to Daptone imprint Wick Records.
Shilpa Ray, Lulu Lewis, Grace Bergere @ Berlin
With a harmonium-powered, smoky, dark sound, Shilpa Ray is a one-of-a-kind talent and is always worth catching live.
Baaba Maal @ Metropolitan Museum of Art
"Senegalese icon Baaba Maal comes to The Met for a rare and exquisite acoustic performance of music interwoven with stories about his childhood, his upbringing and family, and legends of the Sahel." Entry to this show is included with museum admission.
