You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
"For the Record" @ TV Eye
Music and portrait photographer (and longtime BrooklynVegan contributor) Ebru Yildiz is showing a gallery of her new photo project, For The Record, “an on-going series of portraits of women working behind-the-scenes in the music industry,” at new Ridgewood club and gallery TV Eye. It's the first collection to be displayed in the venue’s Zone 6 art gallery and this opening is in conjunction with an Audiofemme-curated International Women’s Day showcase featuring Ziemba, Parlor Walls, Lola Pistola, Jessica Louise Dye, and René Kladzyk.
The Mystery Lights, The Ar-Kaics, Brower @ Baby's All Right
If you like garage rock with a little bit of soul, it's a great night at Baby's with the first of a two night stand for The Mystery Lights and The Ar-Kaics who are both signed to Daptone imprint Wick Records.
Radical Face, Axel Flovent @ Elsewhere Hall
Ben Cooper’s long-running indie pop project Radical Face recently reissued its most-loved album Ghost for its 10th anniversary and now has a new album called Into the Woods on the way. Going by recent setlists, expect a career-spanning set tonight.
Richard Lloyd (of Television), B Boys @ Elsewhere Zone One
A founding member of NYC rock icons Television, Richard Lloyd's guitar style can be heard in groups today, maybe even B Boys who open the show (though they sound more like Wire).
Spider Stacy, Cait O'Riordan, Lost Bayou Ramblers @ Rough Trade
Original Pogues members Spider Stacy and Cait O’Riordan are on the “Poguetry” tour where they're backed up by Grammy-winning Cajun music band Lost Bayou Ramblers. “I saw the Ramblers play back in 2011 and immediately recognized them as kindred spirits,” says Stacy, who lives in New Orleans these days. “I felt they’d be a fantastic vehicle to give the old songs some new life. I’m not ready to stop playing live but at the same time I don’t think the world needs any new music from me, so this works nicely. Bringing Cáit in just took us up another level.”
You can also find quality entertainment on almost any night of the week at: Barbès bar and performance space in Park Slope, LunÀtico in Bed Stuy, Nublu in the East Village, Blue Note jazz club in the West Village, The Stone in multiple locations, Comedy Cellar in the West Village, and Q.E.D. comedy club in Astoria.
