You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Les Savy Fav, Patio @ Elsewhere
Known for their utterly bananas live shows, Les Savy Fav don’t play very often anymore and who knows when they'll play again. Sold out.
Kacey Musgraves, Natalie Prass @ Beacon Theatre
Kacey Musgraves released her best album yet (and one of the best of 2018) with Golden Hour, which takes her usual country sound in a more psychedelic, more pop direction. She’s on tour now with Natalie Prass (good pairing), and they’ve been covering “I Will Survive” together on stage. This is their second of two consecutive Beacon Theatre shows.
Loren Connors + Chris Forsyth, Alan Licht, Lee Ranaldo @ H0l0
Avant-garde guitar vet Loren Connors continues his residency at H0l0 tonight and he'll be playing a collaborative set with the jammy Chris Forsyth. It's a great bill all around with Alan Licht and Sonic Youth's Lee Ranaldo rounding things out.
Lala Lala, Sen Morimoto, Fielded @ Rough Trade
Fresh off a tour opening for WHY? (and then releasing a collaborative song with WHY?), rising indie rocker Lala Lala returns to NYC on her headlining tour tonight.
Wu-Tang Clan, Funkmaster Flex @ Terminal 5
Wu-Tang Clan's 1993 debut album Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) changed hip hop as we know it, recently turned 25, and it sounds as good today as the day it came out. To celebrate the occasion, the Wu are playing the songs of that album at Terminal 5 tonight and tomorrow.
Black Sabbath Cover Band Rehearsals ft Deradoorian, Nick Zinner (Yeah Yeah Yeahs), Mick Barr (Krallice), Brad Traux (Interpol), Chris Egan (of Blood Orange/!!!), Greg Fox (of Liturgy) @ Saint Vitus Bar
This all-star Black Sabbath cover band got their start at Justin Vernon's PEOPLE festival in Berlin and they had so much fun they've continued to do it when all the members are in town. It may be for fun, but they deliver killer versions of Sabbath classics and Angel Deradoorian can really belt it out. Worth it.
Jah Division @ Secret Project Robot
If you need another all-star cover band featuring Brad Truax, Jäh Division -- aka Brad, Barry London (Dan Melchior’s Broke Revue ) and Oneida drummer Kid Millions -- make great dubbed out instrumental versions of Joy Division songs, and this is a released party for the reissue of their sole record.
Martin Rev (of Suicide), Bootblacks, AM Boys @ The Safari Room at El Cortez
At age 71, Suicide founder Martin Rev is still an imposing, manic presence, bashing away at his keyboard like a maniac. The undercard, including long-running goth band Bootblacks, is good too.
Richard Lloyd (of Television) @ City Winery
A guitarist for the Voidoids and Television, Richard Lloyd's style has influenced generations of musicians.
Public Practice, Monograms, Good In The Dark, Trash TV @ Unit J
Scratchy, funky post-punk fueled the Brooklyn scene of the early ’00s and burnt itself out by the end of the decade. Brooklyn’s quartet Public Practice, which includes Samantha York and Vince McClelland of Wall and also Beverly members Drew Citron and Scott Rosenthal, have found new life in those seeds. They draw from a slightly different set of influences than !!!, Liars and Radio 4, too. Brooklyn may not spawn, or need, another dancepunk resurgence, but Public Practice can stay as long as they want.
Josh Gondelman: Touch The Moon Tour @ The Bell House
Very funny comedian and Last Week Tonight writer Josh Gondelman being his Touch the Moon tour to his hometown.
Bitch Sesh @ Playstation Theater
Casey Wilson and Danielle Schneider‘s bring their popular podcast to NYC for a live taping.
