What’s going on Saturday?
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Daughters, Street Sects, Dead Tenants @ Brooklyn Bazaar
A lot of bands reunite and make good albums, but it's not everyday a reunited band makes an album that might be their best, as Daughters have done with this year's You Won't Get What You Want. Tonight's their first of two sold-out NYC shows supporting it. If you're going, don't miss industrial duo Street Sects, who also just released a great new LP.
Alcest, Eye of Nix, Crowhurst, Year of the Cobra, 1476 @ Knitting Factory (Prophecy Fest)
This is day 2 of the first-ever U.S. edition of Prophecy Productions’ Prophecy Fest (co-presented by Invisible Oranges) of Prophecy Records. Tonight, headliners Alcest are playing Kodama in full plus a “best-of” set, Eye of Nix are playing Black Somnia in full, and lots more.
The Orb, Logan Takahashi @ Elsewhere Hall
Chillout pioneers The Orb, who are celebrating their 30th anniversary all this year, recently released No Sounds Are Out Of Bounds, which features contributions from Youth, Roger Eno, Hollie Cook, Jah Wobble (who played on their ambient classic “Blue Room”), and Guy Pratt.
Monster Rally, Guggenz @ Elsewhere Zone One
Meanwhile in Zone One, it's Monster Rally whose patchwork, crate-digging style is a little like The Avalanches.
Dennis Ferrer, Yuksek, Richard Fearless (from Death in Vegas), The Carry Nation, Jacques Renault, Allie Bell @ Elsewhere Hall
After The Orb show, Elsewhere continues their one-year anniversary with this dancepart that takes over both the Hall and Zone One.
Tenacious D @ Kings Theatre
Having just released new album Post-Apocalypto, Jack & Kyle will rock, acoustically, Kings Theatre in their over-the-top style.
Katie Mullins, Swimming Bell, David Kamm, Cotwell @ Trans-Pecos
Brooklyn singer/songwriter Katie Mullins released a new EP last week that owes much to the British folk style, where she's backed by layers of atmosphere also created by her own voice.
Brother Ali, Mo Amer @ Gramercy Theatre
Indie rap vet Brother Ali is currently on the road celebrating the 15th anniversary of his sophomore album Shadows on the Sun, which came out in 2003 on the Rhymesayers label.
Lifetime, Cold World @ House of Independents
NJ melodic hardcore heroes Lifetime only play shows here and there these days, so it's an exciting thing that they're doing a short Northeast run this week. They play their home state tonight and Brooklyn tomorrow.
The Blaze @ Knockdown Center
French electronic duo The Blaze have gotten a lot of hype (for both their music and their videos), and tonight you can witness their live show in NYC.
Titus Andronicus, Spider Bags @ Market Hotel
Titus Andronicus released a ballad-heavy album this year and spent a lot of the year playing acoustic shows, but now they’re back out on a full-band tour playing some new songs but also tons of punk ragers from earlier in their career. After doing a run of NJ shows earlier this week, they're hitting Brooklyn tonight.
Behemoth, At The Gates, Wolves in the Throne Room @ PlayStation Theater
Behemoth headline this show which has two killer openers: Swedish melodeath vest At the Gates who recently released their second (very good) reunion album and comparatively newer post-black metal staples Wolves in the Throne Room.
Lost Under Heaven, Late Guest at the Party @ Rough Trade
Lost Under Heaven -- aka LUH, aka Ellery James Roberts (who used to front WU LYF) and Ebony Hoorn -- are releasing their sophomore album in January, and all the singles that have come out so far are making the album seem very promising. They play NYC tonight ahead of the album's release.
Kweku Collins, Joseph Chilliams, Lexxy @ S.O.B.'s
Rapper/singer Kweku Collins recently dropped a couple new singles, which presumably means he has a new album in the works. While we wait for that, he plays NYC tonight.
SAVAK, Big Bliss, Sunny Slopes @ Union Hall
SAVAK‘s third album, Beg Your Pardon, is out next week but are celebrating tonight as they'll be in Europe when the album actually is released.
Ezra Furman @ Warsaw
Furman’s a charismatic, charming performer and between the confessional, storytelling nature of many of his songs and folk-rock style, it’s all a little late-’80s Violent Femmes… yet there’s nobody else quite like him.
Dave Alvin & Jimmie Dale Gilmore @ The Bell House
Dave Alvin (The Blasters) and country great Jimmie Dale Gilmore released collaborative album Downey To Lubbock over the summer.
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.”
