What’s going on Saturday?
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
M. Lamar, Charlie Looker, Mivos Quartet @ Merkin Concert Hall
It's the final night of the 2016 Ecstatic Music Festival, featuring Extra Life and Zs founding member Charlie Looker and the Mivos Quartet joining composer/countertenor M. Lamar for the premiere of Lamar’s "Surveillance Punishment and the Black Psyche," a song cycle with art direction by Sabin Calvert.
Matmos @ National Sawdust
Matmos's new album, Ultimate Care II was made entirely from sounds from a washing machine. Whether that appliance will make an appearance at the show remains to be seen.
The Who @ Prudential Center
The Who had to cancel a good chunk of last year's tour due to Roger Daltrey‘s meningitis, but they're back and ready to rock tonight.
Profanatica, Pissgrave, Luminous Vault @ Saint Vitus
Headlining this show is local black metal crew Profanatica, who have been around since the '90s, but this show is also exciting 'cause it's a chance to catch Pissgrave. The absolutely terrifying-sounding Philly band released Suicide Euphoria last year to a lot of acclaim in certain heavy music circles.
Dr. Dog, Hop Along @ Terminal 5
Pennsylvania’s Dr. Dog just released The Psychedelic Swamp which was a revamped version of their unreleased debut LP. Their tour with The Districts is in NYC for two T5 shows (this is the second).
Chris Forsythe & the Solar Motel Band, 75 Dollar Bill @ Trans Pecos
“Cosmic Americana” and jammy instrumentalist Chris Forsythe and the Solar Motel headline this night that also feature autre guitar/sax duo 75 Dollar Bill.
Bill Frisell (guitar) Petra Haden (vocals) Eyvind Kang (viola) Thomas Morgan (bass) Rudy Royston (drums) @ Village Vanguard
Experimental guitarist Bill Frisell has played with John Zorn in the grindcore/jazz band Naked City, Lucinda Williams, Richard Hell, Arto Lindsay and more. This five-night run is with that dog.’s Petra Haden on vocals.
Noel Fielding @ Gramercy Theatre
British comedian and Mighty Boosh co-creator Noel Fielding continues his six-show run tonight.
House of Pain, Everlast @ Irving Plaza
St. Patrick’s Day was yesterday, but for those who haven’t stopped partying (which may include the headliners), the most famous Irish-oriented hip hop act will be dishing out shamrocks and shenanigans tonight.
