What’s going on Sunday?
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Tenacious D @ Kings Theatre
Jack Black and Kyle Gass bring their over-the-top acoustic rawk to Kings Theatre for a second night of Post-Apocalypto celebration.
Lifetime, Cold World @ Brooklyn Bazaar
NJ melodic hardcore heroes Lifetime only play shows here and there these days, so it’s an exciting thing that they’re doing a short Northeast run this week. It wraps up in Brooklyn tonight.
Antarctigo Vespucci, Katie Ellen, gobbinjr @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Antarctigo Vespucci is the collaborative project of Chris Farren and Jeff Rosenstock, and they just released their first album for Polyvinyl, Love In The Time of E-Mail, which is more of the punky power pop they've always excelled at. They're on tour with their old friends Katie Ellen (ex-Chumped), whose music pairs well with AV's.
Daughters, Street Sects, Dog @ Saint Vitus
A lot of bands reunite and make good albums, but it’s not everyday a reunited band makes an album that might be their best, as Daughters have done with this year’s You Won’t Get What You Want. Tonight’s their second of two sold-out NYC shows supporting it. If you’re going, don’t miss industrial duo Street Sects, who also just released a great new LP.
David Nance Group, Mountain Movers @ Union Pool
Highly prolific DIY cult hero David Nance released this year's excellent Peaced and Slightly Pulverized on the great Chicago label Trouble in Mind earlier this year. It's full of anthemic, fuzzed-out, Crazy Horse-ish rock n' roll. Tonight should be a treat.
Cursive, Meat Wave, Campdogzz @ Stone Pony
Cursive recently released their new album Vitriola, their first in six years and first with original drummer Clint Schnase and longtime co-producer Mike Mogis since 2006’s Happy Hollow. They're supporting it on tour now, playing Asbury Park tonight, Long Island on Tuesday, and NYC on Wednesday.
The Wonder Years, Have Mercy, Oso Oso, Shortly @ The Paramount
The Wonder Years departed further from their pop punk roots than ever on this year's alternative rock-inspired (and very good) Sister Cities, and they're back out doing another round of dates behind that album. They hit Long Island tonight, and if you're going, we recommend showing up early to catch the Triple Crown-signed singer/songwriter Shortly.
Old Wounds, SeeYouSpaceCowboy, Chamber, Human Capital @ Goldsounds
This is an all-around pretty cool show of metallic hardcore, headlined by Old Wounds whose new album Glow comes out next week, and also featuring Chamber who have a blistering new 7" out.
Pearla @ Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2
NYC folk singer Pearla (aka Nicole Rodriguez) is currently working on her debut album, and her recent singles are pretty promising doses of airy, bare-bones folk. She plays a hometown show tonight.
Club Night, Peaer, Oceanator @ Baby's All Right
This is an all-Tiny Engines bill, headlined by Oakland indie rockers Club Night who are gearing up to release their debut album on the label in 2019.
Richard Barone "MUSIC + REVOLUTION – Greenwich Village in the 1960s" @ Joe's Pub
Last seen joining the Feelies for their Velvet Underground covers show, former Bongos frontman Richard Barone tonight presents a special show called "MUSIC + REVOLUTION – Greenwich Village in the 1960s" that celebrates the vibrant scene that gave us Dylan and so much more. Joining Richard will be Marshall Crenshaw, The Feelies' Glenn Mercer, Tammy Faye Starlight, Hilary Kole, Steve Addabbo, Terre Roche and more.
Today is also the New York City Marathon which may impede getting around...unless you're running in it.
