You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight’s shows, but here are some highlights…
The The, Elysian Fields @ Brooklyn Steel
Matt Johnson, and what he says is his favorite lineup of the band ever, brings The The back to NYC for their first show here in 16 years. Setlists for “The Comeback Special” tour look pretty good. Welcome back!
David Byrne, Tune-Yards @ Kings Theatre
David Byrne’s acclaimed “untethered” tour continues its three-show hometown run. It’s his most ambitious tour since Stop Making Sense, and there are plenty of Talking Heads songs in the set.
Devon Welsh (Majical Cloudz), Nick Schofield @ National Sawdust
Majical Cloudz is no more, but frontman Devon Welsh recently released his debut solo album, Dream Songs, and it’s not too far removed from his former project. It also sees him bringing in gorgeous string arrangements.
Willie Nelson, Lukas Nelson and Promise of the Real, Greensky Bluegrass, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Sturgill Simpson @ PNC Bank Arts Center
Willie Nelson’s touring Outlaw Music Festival is back in the NYC-area tonight, with a lineup that includes modern crossover country great Sturgill Simpson and more.
Helloween @ Irving Plaza
German power metal OGs Helloween reunited with “classic lineup” vocalist Michael Kiske and guitarist Kai Hansen last year, and now they’re finally playing their first NYC show with those two back in the fold.
#Adulting w/ Michelle Buteau & Jordan Carlos ++ Ben Sinclair, Sara Schaefer @ Union Hall
Michelle Buteau and Jordan Carlos host this show where “guests break down the what, the how, the where and the why #ADULTING is the puberty you opt into.” Tonight’s guests include High Maintenance‘s Ben Sinclair, and Sara Schaefer and Nore Davis.
Frog Boyz @ Union Hall
The Frog Boyz (Jesse VandenBergh and Sean Newman) have been putting on their monthly cartoons and comedy show for two years now – to celebrate, they’ve invited a stellar lineup of comics to perform at their anniversary show, including Naomi Ekperigin (2 Dope Queens), Dina Hashem (Conan), Alison Leiby (The President Show), and Mamoudou N’Diaye (Mic).
Lias Saoudi & Saul Adamczewski (Fat White Family) @ KGB Bar
Lias and Saul of Fat White Family will be playing an impromptu show at this East Village mainstay. 10 PM.
Justin Vivian Bond: A Star is Borned @ Joe’s Pub
Kiki & Herb cocreator Justin Vivian Bond brings this new show which stemmed “from a comic strip – called The Adventures of Chipra – created by Mx Bond’s 7th grade classmate who was all too well aware of the young ‘Chip’ Bond’s obsession with Barbra Streisand. A Star is Borned plumbs the depths of the over-the-top classic Hollywood melodrama ‘A Star is Born’ and the careers of the three queer icons who have made the role their own – until now!”
