You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight’s shows, but here are some highlights…
U2 (performing The Joshua Tree), The Lumineers @ MetLife Stadium
The Joshua Tree made U2 worldwide superstars and they are celebrate the record’s 30th anniversary by playing it in full — from “Where the Streets Have No Name” to “Mothers of the Disappeared” — on this tour. Hear them as they were meant to be heard -- in an enormous stadium.
Young Thug @ Terminal 5
Young Thug is fresh off releasing his "singing album" Beautiful Thugger Girls, and tonight he's celebrating the release at Terminal 5. It's his only non-festival date booked at the moment, so this might be a special one.
Citizens Arrest, All Torn Up, (A)Truth @ Brooklyn Night Bazaar
UK anarcho-punk vets Conflict were supposed to headline this show but they had to cancel their North American tour. Fortunately, NYC hardcore greats Citizens Arrest, whose shows are few and far between, are still playing.
Darwin Deez, Alexander F @ Cape House
If you miss the mid-'00s when The Strokes were the epitome of cool, Darwin Deez makes a similar style of NYC rock, albeit a little dancier, and his live shows are always fun.
John Hammond @ MetroTech Commons
Gonna be in downtown Brooklyn at lunch today? The BAM R&B festival is a groovy way to spend the noon hour, and today's performer is blues legend John Hammond.
BardSpec (members of Enslaved & Today is the Day), IIVII (Josh Graham of A Storm of Light, ex-Neurosis) @ Saint Vitus Bar
Both acts on this bill have members of very heavy metal bands, but these projects have them making ambient/film-score type stuff. Should be a night of ominous vibes.
Luke Temple, Potted Plant, Helena Deland @ Union Pool
Luke Temple of Here We Go Magic just announced a new project called Art Feynman where he explores African highlife and dub, but tonight he's performing under his own name.
Bowl Train w/ Talib Kweli (DJ) @ Brooklyn Bowl
Talib Kweli, who's fresh off playing the big Prodigy tribute show in Prospect Park last weekend, takes over Questlove's weekly Bowl Train party at Brooklyn Bowl tonight.
Dr. Lonnie Smith 75th Birthday Celebration @ Jazz Standard
Jazz legend Dr. Lonnie Smith is celebrating his 75th birthday with a run of shows at the Jazz Standard. He’s doing two shows a night through July 2.
