You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight’s shows, but here are some highlights…
Neneh Cherry, Ian Isiah, Lafawndah, Forest Swords (DJ set) @ Elsewhere
Neneh Cherry has had a pretty great second act, teaming with Four Tet for her last two records. She still doesn't tour much, so here's a chance to catch her, and in a room with great sound.
Mark Lanegan Band, Simon Bonney @ Warsaw
Mark Lanegan has one of the most recognizable voices of the last 30 years and he's used it in different forms, from his old band Screaming Trees to the more electronic direction of recent album. He's got a new one, Somebody’s Knocking, out this fall. This tour is with Simon Bonney of Crime & The City Solution who is definitely worth showing up early to see.
Tom Morello @ Irving Plaza
Tom Morello is on the road again supporting his 2018 solo album The Atlas Underground, and he's saying the show will be "somewhere between a crazy mosh pit, an illegal rave, a subversive art installation, and a prison riot."
My Brightest Diamond, Tunde Olaniran @ Rough Trade
Art pop great My Brightest Diamond took a turn for the electronic on last year's very good A Million and One (and on the non-album singles that followed), and tonight she brings her synthy new sound to Rough Trade.
Dub Trio @ Saint Vitus
Metal/punk/dub hybrid band Dub Trio recently returned with their first album in eight years, The Shape of Dub To Come (featuring Melvins' Buzz Osborne, Mastodon’s Troy Sanders, and Meshell Ndegeocello), and later this year they'll open Incubus' Make Yourself 20th anniversary tour. First, they're doing a smaller headlining run which hits Vitus tonight.
Judas Priest, Uriah Heep @ The Paramount
Not only do Judas Priest have some of the most classic metal albums of all time, their new stuff is good too -- last year's Firepower showed up near the top of many metal year-end lists. They're supporting it on tour (and of course playing tons of classics too) as we speak, and proto-metal vets Uriah Heep make this trek a very appealing double bill. The tour hits Long Island's Paramount tonight and tomorrow.
Matthew Milia, Closebye @ Mercury Lounge
Frontier Ruckus singer Matthew Milia recently released his debut solo album Alone at St. Hugo, and if you dig Frontier Ruckus, you'll probably find that Matthew's solo work is cut from a very similar cloth.
Jaz Coleman (of Killing Joke) @ Berlin
Killing Joke will play two 40th anniversary shows in NYC this week, but first frontman Jaz Coleman will do this Q&A show, inviting "questions about his philosophy, musical endeavours, occult sciences, and views on anything and everything with the aim of literally going 'off on a tangent.'"
Nick Waterhouse, The Mattson 2 @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Nick brings his love of classic soul and R&B, and his band who can really play it, to Brooklyn with an opening set from hazy funk duo The Mattson 2.
Moby, John Hodgman @ National Sawdust
Tonight Moby and John Hodgman discuss a subject surely everyone can relate too: “What do you do when you realize you have everything you think you’ve ever wanted but still feel completely empty? What do you do when it all starts to fall apart?”
Comedy Vs Cancer w/ Tina Fey, Nick Kroll, Seth Meyers, John Mulaney, Andrew Rannells @ Lincoln Center
NYC hospital Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center will be hosting this all-star “Comedy vs. Cancer” fundraiser which aims to “end blood cancers through humor and hope.”
Bobcat Goldthwait, Dana Gould @ The Bell House
Two comedy legends have teamed up for “The Show with Two Heads” tour: Bobcat was a popular standup and actor before writing and directing cult films Shakes the Clown and World’s Greatest Dad; while Dana Gould has written for such shows as The Simpsons, Seinfeld, The Ben Stiller Show and created cult MTV series Super Adventure Team.
