What’s going on Saturday?
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
New York Comedy Festival
The 2018 New York Comedy Festival is underway at venues all over the city. Saturday is the penultimate night, with a Big Terrific reunion of Max Silvestri, Jenny Slate and Gabe Leibman, plus Nicole Byer and Sasheer Zamata, Tracy Morgan, David Cross, Cameron Esposito, Craig Robinson, Marc Maron, Kyle Kinane, Goatface (ft Hasan Minhaj), and tons more.
Open Eagle Mike, DJ Prince Paul, Scott Rogowsky, Shalewa Sharpe, Video Dave @ Littlefield
NY Comedy Festival presents this night of rap and comedy, headlined by Open Mike Eagle, who's fresh off releasing his killer What Happens When I Try To Relax EP. The lineup also features legendary New York hip hop producer/DJ Prince Paul, 'Running Late' and 'HQ' host Scott Rogowsky, and more.
Partner, Mallrat, Jonathan Something @ Baby's All Right
Toronto’s queer riff rockers Partner, whose album In Search of Lost Time was nominated for this year’s Polaris Prize, are all about big hooks, bigger choruses, quotable lyrics and a lot rocking out.
Bloodshot Bill, Jittery Jack, Miss Amy, Little Leslie & The Bloodshots @ Diviera Drive
Bloodshot Bill may perform by his lonesome, but he's got a set of pipes that can, if you're not paying close attention, seem like a few different singers. He headlines this Chills’n’Fever party of grade-A rockabilly.
Toro y Moi, Dizzy Fae @ Elsewhere
Chaz Bundick will soon be back with a new Toro Y Moi album and we should get a preview tonight and this first of two sold-out shows. Chaz will DJ the afterparty, tonight, too.
Yelle, Barrie @ Elsewhere Zone One
French dancepop artist Yelle continues her Zone One run tonight.
Steady Holiday, Renata Zeiguer @ Mercury Lounge
Dre Babinski, who has played with Dr Dog, Dusty Rhodes and the River Band, and was one half of Miracle Days, currently makes music as Steady Holiday which is in a similar vein to The Bird and the Bee.
Darwin Deez, Joy Again @ Rough Trade
The quirky and charming Darwin Deez returned in August with his fourth album, 10 Songs That Happened When You Left Me With My Stupid Heart. His shows are a lot of fun, especially if you like band choreography.
Fenster, Toby Goodshank @ Trans-Pecos
Berlin based band Fenster released their terrific album The Room back in September, which found them embracing electronics even more than before but still sounding utterly human.
Wume, Yvette, Jobs, Meredith Graves (DJ) @ Union Pool
Baltimore duo Wume celebrate the release of their new album, Towards the Shadow, tonight, with noisy Brooklyn duo Yvette on the bill as well.
Necronomidol, Oyasumi Hologram, Late Cambrian, Krimewatch, Miwa Gemini, Mevius, Love Spread, OPUS.TRAVELERS @ Trans-Pecos
Tonight, Trans-Pecos hosts The New York Asia Music Festival, which -- among other things -- includes ripping local punks Kimewatch.
Kaki King @ Iridium
Kaki King is a brilliant, incredibly unique guitarist, and tonight she wraps up a two-night stand at NYC jazz club Iridium.
Saves The Day, Kevin Devine, An Horse @ Stone Pony
Emo/pop punk vets Saves the Day are on the road supporting their new album 9, and recent setlists show they're not shying away from the classic sing-alongs either. It's a great bill all around, with singer/songwriter Kevin Devine (who's in the midst of a second edition of his Devinyl Splits split 7" series) and back-in-action indie rockers An Horse.
Bob Weir & Wolf Bros @ The Capitol Theatre
Bob Weir’s new trio Wolf Bros (Bobby plus Jay Lane and Don Was) are on the road re-imagining Grateful Dead classics in a stripped-down setting. This is their second of two nights at the Cap, and they also play two Beacon Theatre shows next weekend.
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.”
