You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Foxing, Lymbyc Systym, Tancred, Adjy @ Bowery Ballroom
Foxing are back on the road support of last year's excellent Dealer, a lush, deeply personal record that was one of our favorites of the year. Somehow, they're even better as a live band. Post-rock vets Lymbyc Systym and indie rockers Tancred (led by Now, Now guitarist Jess Abbott) are both worth catching too.
Mount Moriah, Skylar Gudasz @ Rough Trade
Mount Moriah just released their very solid new album How to Dance on Merge. It's their most cleanly-produced record yet, and quite possibly also their fullest-sounding.
ROMP, Hey Anna, Comfy, Swoon Lake @ Alphaville
ROMP's recently-released debut album Departures From Venus is a super catchy dose of indie rock-minded pop punk, not far removed from other recent bands like Chumped and Swearin'. Tonight's the release show.
Kneedelus, Cuddle Magic @ Le Poisson Rouge
Flying Lotus' Brainfeeder label has been diving pretty hard into real-deal jazz lately, with Kamasi Washington's album The Epic and also Kneedelus, the new collaborative project of glitch hop vet Daedelus and jazz group Kneebody.
Lucinda Williams @ City Winery
Lucinda Williams' new album The Ghosts of Highway 20 is a dark, depressing album, sadly inspired by the death of her father, and it's also one of her strongest recent releases. Tonight she begins a five-show run at City Winery.
Better Person, Shampoo, Richie Quake @ Baby's All Right
Berlin-based artist Adam Byczkowski works under the moniker Better Person, crafting ’80s-style lite balladry that hearkens back to Sade and “Careless Whispers”-era Wham.
Exceptet, Goldfeather @ Merkin Concert Hall
Part of the Ecstatic Music Festival, today pairs Brooklyn-based septet Exceptet and neo-old-timey band Goldfeather.
Suzi Analogue, Bearcat (DJ Set), VIA APP @ MoMA PS1
This event is called "Industry Women II" which "invites local youth to participate in electronic music workshops, performances, and a panel discussion on women in electronic music." It features DJ set by BEARCAT, a live set by Via App, and Ableton and CDJ workshops lead by FIN and Gun$ Garcia, and a live performance by Suzi Analogue.
Psychic TV, Kill Alters, Diamond Terrifier, Michael Beharie, Don Devore, Miho Hatori (of Cibo Matto) @ Trans Pecos
Psychic TV's two-night celebration at Trans-Pecos back in January got squashed by Winter Storm Jonas, but they've regrouped and have rescheduled it for this weekend, tonight with lots of cool friends.
Mike Birbiglia @ The Lynn Redgrave Theater
Comedian Mike Birbiglia has been doing his show “Thank God for the Jokes” for nearly two years. He’s putting it to bed, but not before this run which just got extended through May.
