We're in the middle of Fourth of July Weekend -- check out our guide to shows and events through Sunday and you can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Freddie Gibbs & Madlib, Pardison Fontaine, Kelly Lee Owens, Kedr Livanskiy, JOY, duendita, Like That Records @ MoMA PS1
Warm Up begins Fourth of July Weekend this year, and opening day has a truly stacked lineup. The headliners are Freddie Gibbs & Madlib, who are fresh off releasing their excellent new album Bandana, the rapper/producer duo’s first album together in five years. The bill also includes Cardi B collaborator Pardison Fontaine, electronic/art pop musician Kelly Lee Owens (who DJs Elsewhere the day before), Russian ambient/electronic musician Kedr Livanskiy, rising NYC neo-soul singer duendita, and more.
World/Inferno Friendship Society, This Way To The Egress, Out of System Transfer @ Brooklyn Bazaar
World Inferno Friendship Society have been mixing punk, folk, klezmer and other styles for nearly 25 years and remain a fiery live act worth seeing.
Brooklyn Psych Fest @ Knitting Factory
It’s the inaugural Broooklyn Psych Fest with an all-day head-trip in store featuring SWIMM, Big Bliss, Cindy Cane, Coco Verde and more. There are also psychedelic art installations and on-stage projections, and more. Noon – mindnight.
Oddisee & Good Compny, 47SOUL, Narcy @ Prospect Park Bandshell
As mentioned above, the free BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival hosts two great hip hop shows this weekend, this being the second. It’s headlined by DC underground rap icon Oddisee (with his backing band Good Compny), who is usually very prolific but hasn’t released anything in a while. Still, his fruitful career has birthed plenty of great music for him to pull from at this show.
Gifts From Enola, Gates, Constants, Glassing @ Saint Vitus
Two members of heavy post-rock act Gifts From Enola are now mostly busy with their newer post-hardcore band Florida Man, but Gifts From Enola returned from hibernation to play Belgium’s Dunk! Festival last month, and will now play this NYC one-off. There’s a great list of openers too, including the likeminded, long-running Boston band Constants, NJ atmospheric emo band Gates, and Austin blackened post-hardcore band Glassing.
Oh, Such A HUGE Show, Oh! @ The Bell House
This is a special benefit edition of “Oh, Such a HUGE Show, Oh!” with proceeds going to The Young Center For Immigrant Children’s Rights. The lineup of comedians is pretty killer, with Aparna Nancherla, Emmy Blotnick, Josh Gondelman, Conner O’Malley, Ziwe Fumudoh, Josh Sharp, The Lucas Brothers, and Anna Drezen.
