What’s going on Thursday?
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Gladie, Brush @ Rough Trade
Gladie is one of a few current projects of Augusta Koch, singer/guitarist for the now-defunct Cayetana, and their just-released debut album Safe Sins is some of Augusta's best work yet. The band -- which Augusta formed with Three Man Cannon's Matt Schimelfenig and which now also includes bassist Ian Farmer (Modern Baseball) and drummer Pat Conaboy (The Spirit of the Beehive) -- take a more atmospheric approach than Cayetana, but Augusta's unmistakable and instantly-recognizable voice gives Gladie that familiar feeling that Cayetana's best songs always have. Before they head out on tour supporting Tigers Jaw, they're doing a headlining tour which hits Brooklyn tonight.
Sanguisugabogg, Vomit Forth, Oxalate @ Saint Vitus
Ohio death metallers Sanguisugabogg are gearing up to follow last year’s Maggot Stomp-released Pornographic Seizures EP with their anticipated debut full-length this year. Meanwhile, they're on tour with labelmates Vomit Forth and hitting Vitus tonight with additional support from local-ish death metal staples Oxalate.
Of Montreal, Lily's Band @ Elsewhere
Kevin Barnes has led Of Montreal for nearly 25 years, and is still making catchy, danceable indie pop, as can be heard on the group's 16th album, Ur Fun.
Control Top, Weeping Icon @ Union Pool
Philly’s fearsome Control Top (who made one of our favorite albums of 2019) are in town for two shows this week, this being the first and they're well-matched with Brooklyn post-punks Weeping Icon.
The Free Nationals @ Elsewhere
Anderson .Paak's backing band The Free Nationals now have an album of their own, and they'll celebrate it at this sold-out show.
Silversun Pickups, The New Regime @ Brooklyn Steel
Mid 2000s era indie hitmakers Silversun Pickups are still going strong and playing Brooklyn Steel tonight and tomorrow in support of last year's Widow's Weeds.
070 Shake @ Webster Hall
New Jersey rapper/singer 070 Shake has been on the rise for a few years, and she got a bigger boost in fame when she was prominently featured on several albums from Kanye’s Wyoming sessions last year. Now, her own debut album MODUS VIVENDI is out and she celebrates it at this sold-out show.
