What’s going on Thursday?
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
LCD Soundsystem @ Brooklyn Steel
It’s been quite a year for James Murphy who came back with a fourth LCD Soundsystem album, American Dream, that ended up being worth the grief of their “comeback” after breaking up in 2011. They wrap up their 2017 with a 10-night run on their home turf, this being night 8.
Ronnie Spector @ City Winery
It’s not Christmas in NYC without some shows from Ronnie Spector, whose voice graced such A Christmas Gift For You From Phil Spector classics as “Frosty the Snowman,” “Sleigh Ride,” and “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus” as a member of The Ronettes. This is her second of two nights at City Winery this week.
Darlene Love @ BB King's
Like Ronnie Spector, Darlene Love -- who sang "White Christmas," "Marshmallow World," "Winter Wonderland," and "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home") on A Christmas Gift For You -- plays NYC every Christmas season. Tonight she begins a three-night run at BB King's.
Talib Kweli @ Rough Trade
Talib Kweli returned this year with the very solid Radio Silence, and tonight he plays another hometown show in support of it. He's doing a performance and signing, and while the show is free, you need to purchase the new album from Rough Trade for the signing.
Will Butler (of Arcade Fire), Aparna Nancherla, Jo Firestone, Mamarazzi, and more! @ The Bell House
"Ring in the Resistance" is a resistance-themed "night of music, dancing, drinks, comedy, and a chance to mingle with fellow activists, progressive candidates, and resistance organizations."
Colleen Green, Cassie Ramone, Leya, Spirit Crush @ The Footlight
it's a holiday party hosted by pals and indie rockers Colleen Green and Cassie Ramone (who put out a pretty good holiday record a couple years back).
Springsteen on Broadway
The Boss is currently in the midst of his completely sold-out “Springsteen on Broadway” run at the Walter Kerr Theatre, which has now been extended through June! At these shows, Bruce plans to give fans shows “that are as personal and as intimate as possible.”
Justin Vivian Bond: Manger Danger! Jesus as a Weapon and a Tool @ Joe’s Pub
Justin Vivian Bond’s unique Christmas show continues its run at Joe’s Pub. What is this show all about? We’ll let Justin do the talking: “I think I’m in LOVE with JESUS but it’s difficult because a lot of HIS FOLLOWERS totally HATE ME. (I know, the irony is not lost on me either) Anyway, I’m confused because I’m fully committed to bringing down the patriarchy but I’M TOTALLY CRUSHED OUT ON THE SON OF GOD! Please forgive me for co-opting your holiday to work it out publicly in my new show ‘Manger Danger! Jesus as a Weapon and a Tool.’”
PAT @ Union Pool
It’s the holiday edition of JD Samson’s monthly PAT Party, featuring “good vibes, good sound, video projection by local video artists and DJ’s that aren’t afraid to go deep.” Those DJs tonight include Eli Escobar, Amber Valentine and more.
New Year's Eve is almost here. Do you know what you're doing when the ball drops? Check our New Year's Eve Shows & Party Guide for some suggestions.
