You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Neil Young, Promise of the Real @ The Capitol Theatre
Having just played Farm Aid, last weekend, Neil Young & Promise of the Real are playing this fairly intimate show.
Alvvays, Snail Mail, Hatchie @ Warsaw
If you like slightly shoegazey indie rock, this is a killer triple bill and it's the second of their three sold-out nights at Warsaw.
LVL UP @ Baby's All Right (2 shows)
Brooklyn's LVL UP, who released Return to Love on Sub Pop in 2016, have decided to call it quits but are going out with three hometown shows, two of which are tonight. The late show with Slight is sold out but you can still get tickets to the early show (6:30 doors) with Poppies.
Angelique Kidjo, Resistance Revival Chorus @ Central Park SummerStage
Angelique Kidjo released a song-for-song cover of Talking Heads' Remain in Light that radically reimagined the songs (it's great). She's performing that tonight.
JEFF The Brotherhood, Roya, Laughing God @ Elsewhere
Jake and Jamin Orall entirely reinvented JEFF on their proggy, wonderful new LP. It will be interesting to see how they integrate their old jammers into the set, and what fans who might not have heard the new record will think of their sonic left turn.
Ice Choir, Peel Dream Magazine, Monograms @ Elsewhere
This is a very solid bill for indiepop fans: Ice Choir is the very '80s synthpop project of onetime Pains of Being Pure at Heart member Kurt Feldman (it's very Scritti Politti); while Peel Dream Magazine sound somewhere between Belle & Sebastian and Broadcast and are celebrating the release of their Slumberland Records debut.
Leon Vynehall @ The Kitchen
The great electronic musician Leon Vynehall released his new album Nothing Is Still earlier this year, and now he's debuting a new live show at The Kitchen tonight through Saturday. Via press release: “The performance includes musicians from London’s leftfield and jazz scenes including Sam Beste on piano/synth, Rob Mullarkey on bass, Will Ritson on drums and Vynehall himself on synth, guitar, drum machine and lap steel.”
Lenny Kravitz, Curtis Harding @ United Palace Theatre
If you're going to this show, be sure to check out Curtis Harding who does psychedelic soul right.
Nico Muhly & Friends: "Marnie" at the Met @ National Sawdust
In celebration of Nico Muhly's new opera, Marnie, which is premiering at The Met, "three young stars of the operatic stage break out of the opera house with an intimate soirée of the music that has meant the most to them in other contexts. Nico Muhly invites Isabel Leonard, Iestyn Davies, and a few other friends to share a convivial evening of friendship and song."
Springsteen on Broadway
The Boss continues his sold-out “Springsteen on Broadway” run at the Walter Kerr Theatre, which runs through December. At these shows, Bruce is giving fans shows “that are as personal and as intimate as possible.”
Active Bird Community, Samia @ Rough Trade
Brooklyn indie rockers Active Bird Community are kicking off a tour in support of their first album for Barsuk, Amends, in their hometown tonight. It's also worth catching fellow New Yorker Samia, who released a couple very promising singles and signed to Grand Jury this year.
Cakes Da Killa, Oscar Nn, Sissy Elliott, Ylang, Sidra @ Mood Ring
Bushwick bar Mood Ring celebrates its one year anniversary with three nights of parties, starting tonight. This one's headlined by a live performance by local rapper Cakes Da Killa, whose shows are always a killer time.
Daniel Carter/Hamid Drake/William Parker, 75 Dollar Bill @ Troost
Improvisational guitar/percussion duo 75 Dollar Bill continue their week-long residency at Greenpoint cocktail bar Troost. It’s free but there is a suggested $10 donation. 8 PM, 75 Dollar Bill are the openers tonight.
