You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Pixies (Come On Pilgrim... It's Surfer Rosa) @ Brooklyn Steel
As the name says, Pixies will be playing their classic debut mini-LP Come On Pilgrim and their classic debut full-length Surfer Rosa in full at this show (and more). This is night one of a three-night run at Brooklyn Steel.
Bob Weir & Wolf Bros @ Beacon Theatre
Bob Weir’s new trio Wolf Bros (Bobby plus Jay Lane and Don Was) are on the road re-imagining Grateful Dead classics in a stripped-down setting. This is their first of two Beacon Theatre shows.
Dirty Projectors, Lower Dens @ Elsewhere
Quirky pop lifers Dirty Projectors returned this year with their solid new album Lamp Lit Promise, and tonight they begin a two-night stand at Elsewhere with dream pop staples Lower Dens.
Part Time, Lucy @ Baby's All Right
The pseudonym of bedroom pop maestro David Loca, Part Time are in the same weirdo world as Ariel Pink, just not as weird (and with a higher hit rate). With a great new album, Spell #6 just out, he plays his first NYC headline show in years tonight. Ariel actually sings on the album and, like Loca, is in town for the last night's Mexican Summer fest so who known who might join tonight.
Kero Kero Bonito, Miho Hatori @ Market Hotel
Once associated with the PC Music scene, Kero Kero Bonito have transformed from laptop pop into an actual band who sound closer to The Cardigans, while still keeping their very modern wit. Former Cibo Matto singer Miho Hatori should make this a great double bill.
Diane Cluck @ Rockwood Music Hall
Singer/songwriter Diane Cluck is armed with a fairly large arsenal of very unique songs, and her live show is always captivating. She plays Rockwood Music Hall tonight and tomorrow.
Superego: Forgotten Classics @ The Bell House
Paul F. Tompkins' weekend stay at The Bell House wraps up tonight with his sketch group Superego doing "forgotten classics" where they improvise a book none of them have read. Tonight: Agatha Christie's Death on the Nile.
Jon Glaser @ Littlefield
The great, funny Jon Glaser (Delocated, Jon Glaser Loves Gear) will try "out some classic bitz to see if they might work for a live special. Come help him decide if it's a great idea or a misguided attempt!"
