What’s going on Tuesday?
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Nilüfer Yanya, Pixx @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
UK artist Nilufer Yanya released her full-length debut earlier this year which feels like an album you've known your entire life; jazzy pop that can recall anything from Sade to mid-2000s Feist.
Hannah Gadsby @ Daryl Roth Theatre
Hannah Gadsby‘s acclaimed 2018 show and Netflix special, Nanette, centered about the idea that she was quitting comedy. Which happily, is something she actually has not done. “I don’t have any other skill sets,” she joked in an announcement video on Facebook for her new stand-up show, “Douglas,” which begins its month-long NYC run tonight.
Twin Peaks (live + signing) @ Rough Trade
Twin Peaks will be previewing their new album, Lookout Low, with this special show. You'll need to pre-order the album at Rough Trade to get in, but you'll get a new 7" single (and can have them sign it) at the show.
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.
Taj Mahal @ City Winery
There's not many shows left at City Winery's Varick Street location (it's closing this month and moving to Pier 57 next year) but you can catch blues legend and guitar great Taj Mahal tonight.
Gustaf, Francie Moon, Luah, Pure Joy @ Sunnyvale
Brooklyn band Gustaf have a playful sense of menace -- thanks in large part to magnetic singer Lydia Gammill -- that goes well with their post-punk inspired sound.
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.
Steve Earle and the Dukes @ Asbury Lanes
A great singer-songerwriter and storyteller, country/folk great Steve Earle can rock too -- especially when backed by the Dukes.
