You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
The Lemon Twigs, Purr @ Baby's All Right
The Lemon Twigs celebrate the release of their new high-concept album Go To School with this intimate sold-out show. Before the show they're hosting a pop-up shop out of a school bus that will be parked outside of Baby's where they'll be selling exclusive merch and early vinyl copies of the LPs.
Popgun 10th Anniversary w/ Charly Bliss, Bodga, TOMI, Public Practice, Ela Minus, Heathered Pearls, Yaasss @ Elsewhere
Popgun Booking, the folks behind Elsewhere (and Glasslands before that) celebrate their 10th anniversary of booking shows by booking this party that takes over all of elsewhere with some of their favorite local bands. You need tickets for the indoor show, but the roof show (Public Practice, TOMI) are free.
Beach House, Papercuts @ Kings Theatre
Beach House took their ethereal sound in new directions on this year’s terrific 7, and now they’re taking it to one of Brooklyn's loveliest venues where their sonics and visuals should shine.
Thursday, Ageist @ Asbury Lanes
NJ post-hardcore vets Thursday have been doing full-album runs in various cities, where they play two of their classics, 2001's Full Collapse and 2003's War All The Time, in full. This is night one of a four-night run in their home state, and they're doing Full Collapse at this one.
Kevin Devine, Remember Sports @ Industry City
Kevin Devine is in the midst of releasing the second installment of his Devinyl Splits split 7" series, and he's also been busy on the road all year. Tonight he plays a headlining show in Brooklyn for the "Bell House Summer Series At Industry City."
Le Butcherettes, De Lilith @ Knitting Factory Brooklyn
Mexican garage punks Le Butcherettes make good records, but the best way to experience them is live, where singer Teri Gender Bender is sure to put on an unforgettable performance.
Here Lies Man, Mick's Jaguar, Somnuri @ Saint Vitus
Here Lies Man is the band led by Antibalas member Marcos Garcia and featuring other current and former Antibalas members, and their music aims to answer the question "What if Black Sabbath played Afrobeat?" They released their second album, You Will Know Nothing, earlier this year.
Zenizen @ MoMA
Led by singer-songwriter Opal Hoyt, Brooklyn band Zenzien combines a variety of influences into their own funky, forward-thinking mix. Tonight's show is part of MoMA's Summer Thursdays series and is included with museum admission.
Revel In Dimes, Kendra Morris, Peel Dream Magazine @ Our Wicked Lady
New Brooklyn band Peel Dream Magazine filter ’60s psych through a decidedly late-’90s, early-’00s indie rock lens, recalling Lilys, Stereolab, American Analog Set, and Broadcast. Their debut LP is out this fall on Slumberland.
Devotchka @ Rough Trade
Gypsy-folk-indie-etc band DeVotchKa celebrate the release of their new album, This Night Falls Forever.
Iris DeMent, Pieta Brown @ The Bell House
One of the great songwriters and singers of the last 25 years, Iris DeMent finds inspiration in the little stuff and makes it universal.
Jesse Malin, Fever High, Diane & the Gentle Men, Pearl Charles @ Bowery Electric
NYC rock lifer, D Generation frontman and Bowery Electric co-owner Jesse Malin headlines tonight, with an opening set from up-and-comer Pearl Charles.
Lola Kirke, Cassandra Jenkins, Domino Kirke @ Union Pool
Lola Kirke just released her debut album, Heart Head West, and celebrates with the last of three sold out shows at Union Pool. Tonight's extra special as her sister, Domino, is also on the bill, as is Cassandra Jenkins.
Allah-Las, Olden Yolk, Tim Hill, Reverb Radio @ White Eagle Hall
Los Angeles’ Allah-Las wear their fringe like Roger McGuinn, and sound like it too. Tonight’s show is also with Quilt offshoot Olden Yolk and are worth getting there early to see.
Springsteen on Broadway
The Boss continues his sold-out “Springsteen on Broadway” run at the Walter Kerr Theatre, which has now been extended through December. At these shows, Bruce is giving fans shows “that are as personal and as intimate as possible.”
