You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Mitski, Fear Of Men, Weaves @ Webster Hall
Mitski returned earlier this year with her Dead Oceans debut, Puberty 2, which has deservedly gained her a ton of new fans. Tonight she headlines her biggest NYC show yet, and it sold out well in advance. Also, both openers are great.
PARTYNEXTDOOR, Jeremih @ Terminal 5
Drake associate PARTYNEXTDOOR has written/produced for Drake, Rihanna and others, and he's a rising artist in his own right too. He's on tour now with R&B great Jeremih, who has been pretty unstoppable since his career-shifting Late Nights mixtape.
Nobunny, Future Punx, Cowboys, Big Huge @ Shea Stadium
Nobunny's one-of-a-kind mix of bubbleglam garage and disturbing visual style (that mask!) is best experienced live where crowds tend to be wild and wound-up. Bloomington, IN’s grimy The Cowboys make for good tourmates, and local nu wavers Future Punx are always fun.
This Will Destroy You, Young Widows @ Bowery Ballroom
Post-rock greats This Will Destroy You are currently on tour playing their debut album Young Mountain and its self-titled followup in full. This is their first of two NYC shows, and post-hardcore/noise rock greats Young Widows open this one.
DZ Deathrays, Dune Rats, Surfbort @ Baby's All Right
It's a double bill of Aussie punk with duo DZ Deathrays and troublemakers Dune Rats, both from Brisbane.
Steve Hauschildt, FORMA @ (le) poisson rouge
Electronic trio Emeralds are no more, but members have gone solo including Steve Hauschildt, who plays NYC tonight.
Carcass, Deafheaven, Inter Arma, Dissolve @ The Chance
This is a crazy good metal triple-bill. Deafheaven nail a black metal and post-rock blend like few bands can, Carcass are true legends of death metal, and Inter Arma have kinda become a black/death metal version of Swans. The tour doesn't hit NYC but this show is pretty close.
Andrew WK @ House of Independents (speaking tour)
No one philosophizes about partying more than Andrew WK, and now he's on the road doing a speaking tour dubbed 'The Power of Partying.' Should be very educational and inspiring.
Night Train @ Littlefield
All aboard Wyatt Cenac's weekly comedy cavalcade, tonight featuring guests Sean Patton, Karl Hess, Daniel Simonsen, Sonia Denis, underrated UK comedian Josie Long, and more.
