You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Ministry, Death Grips @ Brooklyn Steel
Though they may come from different generations, Ministry and Death Grips share a goal of making dark, abrasive, confrontational music, making this a pretty exciting double bill. Ministry's classics still sound brutal in a live environment, and they should work pretty well with Death Grips' more modern material. The two bands play Brooklyn Steel tonight and Terminal 5 tomorrow.
Billy Bragg @ City Winery (two shows)
An equally powerful performer and storyteller, Billy Bragg is one of the greats whose songs about the thorny territory of interpersonal relationships are just as electrifying as his protest anthems
Camille @ Le Poisson Rouge
Former Nouvelle Vague singer Camille just released her fifth album, Oui, in the US -- it debuted at #1 in France -- and celebrates at the one-off NYC show tonight.
The Underachievers, Injury Reserve, Warm Brew @ Irving Plaza
Brooklyn rap duo The Underachievers returned this year with their new album, Renaissance, which has their sound in fine form.
Guns N’ Roses @ Madison Square Garden
The cheekily titled “Not In This Lifetime Tour” reunites Axl, Slash and Duff and this is GN’R’s final of three MSG shows.
Aura Noir, Mutilation Rites, Meek is Murder, Skullshitter @ Knitting Factory
Long-running Norwegian metal band Aura Noir's original trio lineup of Aggressor, Blasphemer and Apollyon are currently on their first-ever North American tour. They play Knitting Factory tonight and tomorrow, and they're promising "a different set each night, covering their entire twenty-four year long career." Both shows hve great, different openers too.
Night of The Living Dead with original live score by Morricone Youth @ Brooklyn Bowl
George Romero's zombie classic gets a new original score from Morricone Youth which they'll perform live to the film.
Night Train w/ Wyatt Cenac @ Littlefield
Wyatt welcomes Aparna Nancherla (who will soon be taking over his Monday slot at Littlefield), plus guests Alzo Slade, Kenny DeForest, D.C. Benny, Ophira Eisenberg, and more.
Bill Murray, Jan Vogler & Friends @ Carnegie Hall
"Noted actor Bill Murray teams up with distinguished German cellist Jan Vogler to present a spirited evening of music and literature, for one night only. In this rare live appearance, Murray - as both singer and narrator - brings his charm and wit to songs by Foster, Gershwin, Mancini, and Bernstein, as well as readings of classic American poetry and prose in dialogue with Vogler's singing Stradivari cello."
