What’s going on Sunday?
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight’s shows, but here are some highlights…
DOOMSQUAD, Scam Avenue, Linda Gardens @ The Safari Room at El Cortez
Miss the early-'00s indie dance explosion of DFA Records, Out Hud and Liars? Toronto's DOOMSQUAD have that vibe, with a dose of early-'80s artiness (think Will Powers). Their new album Let Yourself Be Seen is excellent and this is a night off headline show from their tour with Operators.
Greatest Day Ever Festival @ Ford Amphitheater at Coney Island Boardwalk
Electronic/rap festival Greatest Day Ever returns for a second day at its new Coney Island location, and among today's performers include Lil Baby, City Girls, Zeds Dead, Nina Las Vegas, and more.
Lynyrd Skynyrd, Hank Williams Jr. @ Forest Hills Stadium
Lynyrd Skynyrd continue their "Last of the Street Survivors Farewell Tour" at Queens' Forest Hills Stadium tonight, where they'll be accompanied by another legendary act, Hank Williams Jr. This is one time where "Free Bird!" is encouraged though certainly unnecessary.
Kid Koala, Adira Amram & The Experience @ Industry City
Turntablist extraordinaire Kid Koala presents the family-friendly "Vinyl Vaudeville" that is part puppet show, part concert featuring "dancers! giant spiders! giant penguins! brass-playing ants! giant paper airplane fights!" and more. 3PM and sounds like fun.
Heart Bones (in the round), Good Fuck @ (le) poisson rouge
Heart Bones, the eccentric duo of Har Mar Superstar and A Giant Dog's Sabrina Ellis, will perform a special in-the-round set, with support from another duo, the experimental project Good Fuck (Tim Kinsella and Jenny Pulse).
Sanctuary, Ghost Ship Octavius @ Saint Vitus Bar
Thrash/power metal vets Sanctuary visit Saint Vitus tonight to perform their 1988, Dave Mustaine-produced debut LP Refuge Denied in full, with more recent metal act Ghost Ship Octavius supporting.
Johnny Thunders Birthday Bash @ The Bowery Electric
The annual birthday celebration for late NYC punk legend Johnny Thunders returns to The Bowery Electric, with appearances from tons of CBGB veterans and other related acts, including Walter Lure and The Waldos, Lenny Kaye, The Beauty School Dropouts, The Carvels, Dina Regine, and tons more.
75 Dollar Bill @ The Noguchi Museum
75 Dollar Bill, aka guitarist Che Chen and percussionist Rick Brown, just released the new double album I Was Real, which is their first in three years. Their music is complex, incorporating blues and guitar styles from around the world, but sounds deceptively simple and rewards repeat listens.
Loren Connors, Lake Mary, Nevada Greene, Hour @ Trans-Pecos
Ambient guitarist Loren Connors' transfixing compositions should make for a great live show, and this NYC stop features support from fellow instrumental guitar projects Lake Mary, Nevada Green, and Hour.
Bill Orcutt, Chris Corsano, Ava Mendoza @ Union Pool
Union Pool's free Summer Thunder series continues this afternoon with guitarist Bill Orcutt and percussionist Chris Corsano. Opening is blues-punk guitarist Ava Mendoza. 2 PM start.
Public Practice, Richie White Orchestra, Jonathan Toubin @ Our Wicked Lady
Jonathan Toubin's Sunday night Soul Scream series on Our Wicked Lady's rooftop continues tonight with Public Practice who do a great update of early-'80s danceable postpunk a la Talking Heads or Pylon. Bands play early, starting at 8 PM, with things turning into a dance party at 10 PM.
Aimee Mann, Jonathan Coulton @ Newton Theatre
Longtime pals and past tourmates Aimee Mann and Jonathan Coulton play NJ's Newton Theater tonight, before an NYC show together next week. The two songwriters often bring each other out to duet on some songs, and tonight's show will probably be no different.
