What’s going on Thursday?
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
"Love Rocks NYC!" benefit @ Beacon Theatre
Keith Richards, Norah Jones, Emmylou Harris, Donald Fagen, Billy F. Gibbons, Warren Haynes, Gary Clark Jr., Mavis Staples, Lucinda Williams and many more are playing this benefit where proceeds go to God's Love We Deliver.
Jamila Woods, Jazze Belle @ BRIC House
Neo-soul singer Jamila Woods, who shined as a guest on Chance the Rapper’s Coloring Book and released her very good debut HEAVN in 2016, will hopefully give us a taste of her Jagjaguwar debut tonight
Frankie Rose, Hideout, Russian Baths @ Elsewhere Zone One
For her third solo album, Frankie Rose switched things up, trying poppier sounds alongside the darker material of her first two records. She'll be on tour with Alvvays later this year but plays this intimate show tonight.
Hannibal Buress, Joe Budden, Kyle Dion @ Highline Ballroom
This is the third show in Joe Budden's "Oh What a Night" residency at Highline, tonight featuring comedian Hannibal Buress, Kyle Dion and "surprise guests."
Nils Frahm @ Knockdown Center
Nils' new album All Melody is both ambient and engaging, heady but fun and he's promising that tonight's show will be a one-of-a-kind performance.
Nightmares On Wax, Michna @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Having just released his first album in five years, Shape the Future, producer and turntablist Nightmares on Wax is bringing the show on the road with a full live band.
Phil Lesh & the Terrapin Family Band @ The Capitol Theatre
Having just played some duo shows with fellow founding Grateful Dead member Bob Weir, Phil Lesh is now doing a three-night run at the Cap with his Terrapin Family Band this week. This is night two.
Breakbot, Dabeull @ Output
French producer, remixer and DJ Breakbot brings a sly, playful love of '70s and '80s soft rock and pop, with some '90s house and techno as well.
I'm With Her @ Town Hall
Sara Watkins, Sarah Jarosz, and Aoife O’Donovan released their debut album as folk supergroup I'm With Her back in February and will bring their talent (and gorgeous harmonies) to NYC tonight.
Elk City, Punch Havana, Flower @ The Bowery Electric
Elk City, which features Luna's Sean Eden, celebrate the release of their new album, Everybody’s Insecure, tonight and also on the bill are Flower, the reunited pre-Versus band of Richard and Ed Balyut.
The Flag, Courtship Ritual, Ex-Mazed w/o/n @ Wonders of Nature
Former These Are Powers member Ted McGrath makes solo electronic music as The Flag; which duo Courtship Ritual make slinky goth pop that recalls the Bauhaus diaspora (Tones on Tails, Love and Rockets).
John Hodgman, Jean Grae @ The Bell House
Jean and John is a hilarious, well-produced, monthly variety and game show at The Bell House hosted by rapper and comedian Jean Grae and actor and comedian John Hodgman. They invite celebrity guests and some audience members on stage to spin the wheel of topics, which determines what they’ll talk about next.
Springsteen on Broadway
The Boss continues his completely sold-out “Springsteen on Broadway” run at the Walter Kerr Theatre, which has now been extended through June! At these shows, Bruce is giving fans shows “that are as personal and as intimate as possible.”
For all of tonight's shows, and tomorrow's, check out our NYC concert calendar.
