You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Arctic Monkeys, Mini Mansions @ Forest Hills Stadium
Five years after making one of the biggest and best modern-day arena rock albums, Arctic Monkeys returned with the loungey, piano fueled Tranquility Base Hotel + Casino. It's like nothing they've ever done, but they pull this sound off well, as we witnessed at Brooklyn Steel earlier this year, the new songs already sound great next to the classics live. They're back in NYC tonight for a much bigger show.
Deafheaven, Drab Majesty, Uniform @ Brooklyn Steel
Deafheaven continued making their awesome mix of black metal, post-rock, shoegaze and more on this year's great Ordinary Corrupt Human Love, and this time they also take their sound into new territories, like with the addition of clean vocals. Now they're bringing their show on the road, with quality support the gothy Drab Majesty and the noisy Uniform, hitting Brooklyn tonight.
Jeff Rosenstock, Sean Bonnette, Worriers @ House of Independents
Jeff Rosenstock has been busy on the road all year behind 2018's excellent POST-, and tonight he brings his rowdy, crowdpleasing live show back to the NYC-area for a night in Asbury Park. He's got two great openers, AJJ singer Sean Bonnette and political pop punks Worriers.
Marilyn Manson, Rob Zombie @ PNC Bank Arts Center
having co-headlined the "Twins of Evil" tour together in 2012, shock rock icons Marilyn Manson and Rob Zombie are now on the "Twins of Evil: The Second Coming" tour, which hits NJ tonight and Jones Beach in August.
Cautious Clay, Roy Blair @ Bowery Ballroom
Soulful Brooklyn singer/producer/multi-instrumentalist Cautious Clay (aka Josh Karpeh) has released two EPs this year, and he continues to pick up a good amount of buzz for both. He headlines Bowery Ballroom tonight.
Pill, Sloppy Jane, Material Girls, Crammm @ ALPHAVILLE
A pretty killer lineup of music tonight, including a headlining set from the skronky Pill, and hard-to-forget live show of Sloppy Jane.
RZA @ Lincoln Center/Damrosch Park Bandshell
Part of this year's Lincoln Center Out of Doors Festival, RZA will be crafting his live score for kung-fu classic The 36th Temple of Shaolin.
Jack Ladder, Del Water Gap @ Mercury Lounge
With a deep baritone and tall frame, Jack Ladder's presence looms large whether he's with his band The Dreamlanders or, like tonight, just playing solo.
Weeknight, TV Baby, Courtship Ritual @ Secret Project Robot
If you like your pop dark and sultry, this three band bill of goth-leaning synthpop should do the trick.
Phoebe Robinson & Friends @ Union Hall
One half of 2 Dope Queens (which just got picked up for more HBO shows), Pheobe Robinson is doing two "And Friends" shows tonight, both of which are sold out.
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.”
Britney Spears @ Radio City Music Hall
Having played her first NYC show in a while at Radio City last night, Britney hits the historic venue, baby, one more time.
CollegeHumor Live @ UCBeast
Nick Kocher (of BritAnNick and SNL) and Geoff Asmus headline this monthly showcase from CollegeHumor contributors, hosted by Eli Yudin.
Sweet @ The Slipper Room
Seth Herzog (The Tonight Show) hosts the penultimate summer edition of his weekly show Sweet, with stand up from Sam Jay (SNL), Pete Lee (Tonight Show), Dan St. Germain (Conan), and Nate Craig (Tosh.0, MTV’s “Ridiculousness”).
The Generator Series Hosted by Ilana Glazer @ BRIC House
Though Glazer is best known for her free-spirited, stoner persona as one-half of Broad City, she is also an advocate for progressive causes, performing on shows like “Thoughts and Prayers,” a benefit for Everytown for Gun Safety. Glazer brings activism to BRIC House tonight as the host of The Generator Series, a four-part event in which Glazer will interviews activists and politicians. Tonight, her guests are power couple Women’s March co-founder Paola Mendoza and social impact media guru Michael Skolnik.
