You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
The Faint, Ritual Howls, Closeness @ Bowery Ballroom
The Faint released their first album in half a decade, Egowerk, earlier this year, which finds them still in command of that gothy synthpunk sound. They’ll stop at Bowery Ballroom for a two-night stand, with both shows being opened by The Faint/Azure Ray offshoot CLOSENESS, and Detroit band Ritual Howls.
The Wallflowers @ City Winery
Alt-rockers The Wallflowers have kept going past their ’90s hitmaking era, and they play wrap up a two-stand as part of City Winery’s last week on Varick St before the venue moves to Pier 57 next year.
A Giant Dog, Ghost Funk Orchestra, Godcaster @ Elsewhere
Fresh from playing the Merge 30th anniversary festival in North Carolina, Austin punks A Giant Dog hit Brooklyn with direct support from soulful, psychedelic and out-there Ghost Funk Orchestra.
Camp Fuzz @ Full Moon Resort (Big Indian, NY)
Dinosaur Jr are hosting a three-day rock camp in Upstate New York called Camp Fuzz which starts today at the Full Moon Resort in Big Indian, NY and it will feature J Mascis giving workshops on pedals and guitar style, Lou Barlow giving a 4-string guitar & ukulele clinic, and Murph giving drum workshops with special guests like My Bloody Valentine's Kevin Shields.
J. Lee, Kyp Malone's Rainbow Love Machine, Jess Rowland, Aimee Cced, Zach Layton, Nick Hallett @ H0L0
Kyp Malone stays busy when TV on the Radio aren't making records or touring, as he's got about a dozen other projects, like Rainbow Love Machine who who make moody, emotive rock.
Chris Gethard, Matteo Lane, Nore Davis, Kate Willett, Emma Willmann, Karen Chee, Joyelle Nicole Johnson, Ismael Loutfi, Josh Sharp @ The Bell House
This show is called "The Nightcap" and features "hot takes on topics of the day by New York's most hilarious comedians."
The Flaming Lips, The Claypool Lennon Delirium @ The Capitol Theatre
The Flaming Lips’ latest album King’s Mouth is one of their strongest works in years, and its conceptual themes and sound should please fans of the band’s Soft Bulletin/Yoshimi-era work. Their Asbury Park, NJ show tonight also features Les Claypool and Sean Lennon’s The Claypool Lennon Delirium, which should make for a very fun double header.
Deadbeat Beat, Wildly, Hamish Kilgour, Henry Something @ Union Pool
Chicago's Deadbeat Beat includes drummer/vocalist Maria Nuccilli (Outrageous Cherry) and guitarist/vocalist/songwriter Alex Glendening (Tyvek, Stef Chura, The Moles) and make jangly indie rock that's recommended to fans of The Clean (who's drummer, Hamish Kilgour is on this bill). Their new album, How Far, is out this Friday.
The Fight, Restraining Order, Chrome Skulls, Church Clothes @ Brooklyn Bazaar
The Fight have been one of the more promising newer names in LIHC lately, and they grace their hometown area with what should be another killer show tonight.
