You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Because the Night @ National Sawdust
The North Brooklyn Chamber hosts another of their “Because The Night” events tonight featuring a panel discussion regarding the state of nightlife in Williamsburg, Greenpoint and Bushwick. Dhruv Chopra from Elsewhere moderates a panel that includes Nightlife Mayor Ariel Palitz, Courtenay Casey (National Sawdust), Charley Ryan (Brooklyn Bowl), Dave Castillo (Saint Vitus) and BrooklynVegan’s own Bill Pearis.
Mike Birbiglia @ Cherry Lane Theatre
Mike Birbiglia regularly tests out new material with “Working it Out” shows that are often last-minute gigs at tiny clubs like Brooklyn’s Union Hall. This summer, Mike will be “Working it Out” at a residency at Manhattan’s Cherry Lane Theatre that continues tonight and runs through August 15.
Dave Chappelle @ Lunt Fontanne Theatre
Dave Chappelle kicks off his intimate, two-week Broadway run at the Lunt Fontanne Theatre tonight.
Los Campesinos!, Nervous Dater @ Brooklyn Bowl
Last year, Los Campesinos! did a tour celebrating the 10th anniversary of their first two albums, but they are hardly a band who needs to rely on nostalgia. Their recent albums have all been great, and they've maintained a diehard fanbase, who always come out to their highly energetic shows.
blink-182, Lil Wayne @ PNC Bank Arts Center
blink-182's mainstream breakthrough Enema of the State turned 20 this year, and the band is celebrating by tearing through the whole thing on tour. We just caught them doing it at Warped Tour, and they sounded great. They're now on the road with another nostalgic hitmaker, Lil Wayne, and though they might be different genres of music, it's a pairing that makes total sense and should make for a very fun night.
Jeremy Black, Chris Egan, Dave Harrington, Matt Safer @ The Sultan Room at The Turk's Inn
It's a night of improvised dance music at new Bushwick venue The Turk's Inn with Dave Harrington (Darkside), Matt Safer (ex-Rapture), Chris Egan (!!!, Holy Ghost!), and Jeremy Black (Apollo Sunshine).
Phoebe Robinson @ Union Hall
Comedian and podcaster Phoebe Robinson warms up for her upcoming “Sorry, Harriet Tubman” tour with this intimate show that will feature some of her funny friends as well.
