What’s going on Saturday?
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Garbage, Rituals of Mine @ Kings Theatre
Garbage have been celebrating the 20th anniversary of their second (and best) album, Version 2.0, on tour this by playing it along with b-sides from the era. Tonight, the tour finally hits NYC.
Steely Dan @ Beacon Theatre
The late Walter Becker will surely be missed at this nine-show Beacon Theatre run that continues tonight with the band playing Aja in full, plus other favorites.
Lee "Scratch" Perry, SubAtomic Soundsystem @ Elsewhere
Dub icon and reggae legend Lee "Scratch" Perry is celebrating the 45th anniversary of his classic Upsetters' LP Blackboard Jungle Dub tonight, with Subatomic Sound System as his backing. With doors at 7 PM and a late danceparty scheduled to start at 11 PM, this may be the earliest LSP has hit the stage as a headliner...ever?
This Will Destroy You, Steve Hauschildt @ Warsaw
Post-rock greats This Will Destroy You released not one but two new albums this year, and now they're bringing their powerful live show to Brooklyn.
Coven, Sanhedrin @ Le Poisson Rouge
Occult rock legends reunited last year for their first US show in 27 years, and now they're finally playing NYC just in time for Halloween.
Clutch, Sevendust, Tyler Bryant & The Shakedown @ Irving Plaza
Riff rock vets Clutch released their new album Book of Bad Decisions earlier this year, and tonight they wrap up a two-night stand at Irving Plaza in support of it.
Monster Magnet, Electric Citizen, Dark Sky Choir @ Gramercy Theatre
Speaking of veteran riff rock bands with new music to support, Monster Magnet play NYC tonight behind their new album Mindfucker.
Metal Allegiance: Performing Black Sabbath’s first album and more @ Brooklyn Bowl
Here's a Halloweekend covers show with some very Halloween-ready music being covered. Metal supergroup Metal Allegiance (members of Testament, Overkill, Dream Theater) are performing what is arguably the first true metal album, Black Sabbath's 1970 self-titled debut, in full (and more).
They Might Be Giants @ Terminal 5
John and John have been making quirky, intelligent, funny and tuneful pop for over 30 years.
Surfbort, Ruby TM, Gnarcissists, Fascinator @ Baby's All Right
Brooklyn grungy punks Surfbort celebrate the release of their new album, Friendship Music, with this free show (RSVP).
Philip Glass Ensemble (performs Music In 12 Parts) @ Town Hall
Philip Glass, who held the Composer’s Chair position for Carnegie Hall’s 2017-2018 season, along with the Philip Glass Ensemble, will perform his work “Music in 12 Parts” which actually premiered at Town Hall in 1974.
Hot Chip (DJ set), Pleasure Jams, Billy Caldwell, Danilo Braca @ Good Room
It's the Good Room Halloween party and while Hot Chip are not an act you'd call "spooky" or "scary" they do have a good record collection. Request "Monster Mash" and see what happens!
Witch Taint, Voice of Doom at Lucky 13
In 2004 comedian, musician and BV contributor Dave Hill created alter-ego Lance, a teenager living with his parents in Gary, IN who also happened to be the lead singer and sole member of “the most extreme, brutal, and Satanic black metal band of all-time.” That band, Witch Taint, play this show with “NJ’s legendary horror punk band” Voice of Doom.
‘Suspiria’ Costume Party at Videology's Final Night
Dario Argento’s ’70s horror classic (and not the just-released remake) is the inspiration behind this costume party where Videology will transform into the Tanz Dance Academy of Freiburg, with inspiration coming from the vivid colors of the film. There will also be witches, ballet dancers, and more. Sadly, this is the last night of operation for the Williamsburg screening room, bar and DVD rental store which closes after 15 years.
Halloween at the Black Lodge with A Place Both Wonderful and Strange, Fuck You, Tammy!, knifesex, Liberty Rose, Winkie, Del Judas @ Elsewhere
Twin Peaks-themed group A Place Both Wonderful and Strange’s “Halloween at the Black Lodge” has become an annual tradition with a host of acts (including one, Fuck You, Tammy!, that was clearly inspired by the most recent season).
Pioneering People Basilica Benefit: Courtney Love @ Basilica Hudson
Courtney Love is being honored at this benefit at, and for, Basilica Hudson and “will be in attendance as [the] honored guest and will be featured in conversations, readings, and performances." Joining Courtney in performances will be Michael Stipe (who was previously announced only as a host), Kiki & Herb’s Justin Vivian Bond and Kenny Mellman, Natasha Lyonne, Meredith Graves, Faith No More and Imperial Teen’s Roddy Bottum, Zia Anger & Annie Bielski, Davon, and Rock Academy Rebel Girls.
Springsteen on Broadway
The Boss continues his sold-out “Springsteen on Broadway” run at the Walter Kerr Theatre, which runs through December. At these shows, Bruce is giving fans shows “that are as personal and as intimate as possible.”
Michael Christmas, Vintage Lee, Aes Vissle @ Mercury Lounge
Earlier this year, Boston rapper Michael Christmas released his new album Role Model, which gets a little goofy but the humor is always balanced out by serious talent. The 'Role Model Tour' hits NYC tonight.
