You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight’s shows, but here are some highlights…
Vampire Weekend @ Webster Hall
Vampire Weekend finally released their long-awaited fourth LP Father Of The Bride this week, and they'll play the album in full (and tons of other fan favorites) at this special all-day show at Webster Hall. According to the band, the event will feature "three sets including a full performance of the new album in its entirety. A bagel breakfast and a pizza lunch included. All in all a fun day to celebrate the new album. We'll see you that morning and have you home in time for dinner."
Big Thief, Lomelda @ Elsewhere
Speaking of bands with new albums out this week, Big Thief dropped their own anticipated new album U.F.O.F last Friday, and celebrate in Bushwick tonight. While their records can be gentle, they know how to turn it up and rock out, too.
Turnover, Turnstile, Reptaliens, Illusion @ Brooklyn Steel
It's easy to confuse dreamy indie band Turnover and hardcore punks Turnstile due to their names, but that's basically where the similarities end. They're currently on a co-headlining tour with Reptaliens on all dates, with additional support from NYC hardcore band Illusion at tonight's Brooklyn show.
Al Green, The War & Treaty @ Radio City Music Hall
Soul music icon Al Green remains one of the genre's greats, with many hits under his belt including "Let's Stay Together," "Take Me To The River" and "I'm Still In Love With You." Tonight's Radio City show marks his first NYC stop in seven years.
The Feelies @ Rough Trade
The Feelies are a national treasure and their live shows remain wonderful marathons. They wrap up a three-night run at Rough Trade tonight, and if you’ve never seen them, tonight's a great time to change that.
PERSISTICON III @ The Bell House
This unique fundraising event at The Bell House features some great names in comedy, including David Cross, Michelle Buteau, Aparna Nancherla, Marvelous Mrs Maisel's Alex Borstein, and many others, with NPR's Ask Me Another host Ophira Eisenberg serving as emcee. Proceeds from the show will go towards Emily's List, an organization "committed to electing progressive pro-choice women and equalizing the representation of all genders in government."
Gun Outfit @ Union Pool
Twangy West Coast group Gun Outfit played their final tour date with Steve Gunn last night in Washington D.C., but tonight they've got their own headlining show in Brooklyn.
Thor, Python, Return of Thunderhawk screening @ Saint Vitus
Canadian glam metal pioneers Thor are subject of the new documentary Return Of The Thunderhawk, which was released in conjunction with their new album Hammer of Justice. The new doc screens at Saint Vitus tonight and Thor will perform.
Higher Brothers @ Irving Plaza
Energetic Chinese rap group and 88rising signees Higher Brothers stop in NYC tonight, as part of an extensive US headlining tour behind this year's Five Stars.
