You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Johnny Marr, The Belle Game @ Warsaw
Johnny Marr has now released three good solo albums, including this year’s The Tracers, but he loads his sets with plenty of Smiths songs...and he might actually sing them better than Morrissey these days.
Nine Inch Nails, The Jesus and Mary Chain, Daniel Avery @ Kings Theatre
This is the third show in Nine Inch Nails' four-show NYC run, and the setlists on night one and two were drastically different, so there's no telling what surprises they may have in store tonight. NIN's old pals The Jesus and Mary Chain (who took NIN on tour back in the day) provide direct support, and it's worth getting there for opener Daniel Avery too.
Tigers Jaw, The Sidekicks, Cherry @ Market Hotel
Tigers Jaw have come a long way from their scrappy indie pop punk beginnings, but for this tour they're reaching back to an old fan favorite, their 2008 self-titled sophomore album, and playing it in full for its 10th anniversary. Good openers too.
TTNG, Prince Daddy & the Hyena, The Kraken Quartet @ Brooklyn Bazaar
British math rockers TTNG are celebrating the 10th anniversary of their 2008 debut album Animals, and original vocalist Stu Smith is rejoining the band for this tour. They also just released an acoustic reworking of the album, which includes contributions from The Kraken Quartet who open tonight's show.
Little Dragon, April + Vista @ Elsewhere Hall
Swedish pop greats Little Dragon are now on Ninja Tune, and going by the heady electronics of their new “Lover Chanting” single, their upcoming EP of the same name should feel right at home on this label. Tonight's their second of two sold-out shows at Elsewhere.
Meredith Monk @ Le Poisson Rouge
Avant-garde composer Meredith Monk is performing ‘Cellular Songs,’ "the newest in a series of music theater pieces created by Meredith Monk that explore our interdependent relationship with nature while seeking to evoke the ineffable."
The Vaccines, Jesse Jo Stark @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
The Hype for British band The Vaccines may have died down in the States since they burst on the scene in 2010 but they’re still hitmakers in the UK, and this year’s Combat Sports went to #4 on the UK album chart.
Tokyo Police Club, Maxband @ Baby's All Right
Tokyo Police Club's new album TPC is fun stuff and they're celebrating its release with this kinda-intimate Brooklyn show tonight.
Jesse Malin, Don DiLego, Eck's Men @ Coney Island Baby
Jesse Malin is in the midst of an October residency at Coney Island Baby (which he is a part owner of), and tonight he'll be joined by frequent collaborator Don DiLego and Eck's Men.
Lefsetz vs. Flom @ Rough Trade
Bob Lefsetz, music industry insider who publishes “The Lefsetz Letter” and very successful A&R man Jason Flom will interview each other on this speaking tour. They’ll “answer the questions you want to know,” says Bob, “like how did Flom sign all those acts and how did I go from zero to where I am now.”
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.”
The Milk Carton Kids, The Barr Brothers @ Brooklyn Steel
If you're going to this show, do get there early to catch Montreal's The Barr Brothers who put a cinematic spin on heartland rock (and have a harpist in the band, too).
