What’s going on Tuesday?
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Radiohead, Dawn of Midi @ Madison Square Garden
Radiohead's new album A Moon Shaped Pool is yet another winner from this band, who seems to only know how to make winners. They're of course an excellent live band, and this week's two-night stand at MSG should be a good one. This is night 1.
Dawn of Midi, SuperLegal (DJ Set) @ (le) poisson rouge
After electronic-sounding acoustic trio Dawn of Midi open for Radiohead at MSG, they'll head over to LPR for a late show.
G-Eazy, Logic, Yo Gotti, YG @ Barclays Center
YG released one of the year's best rap albums with his G-Funk-inspired Still Brazy. He's currently opening G-Eazy and Logic's co-headlining tour.
case/lang/veirs, Andy Shauf @ Prospect Park
This year, Neko Case, K.D. Lang and Laura Veirs teamed up for a collaborative album, and it's endlessly enjoyable from start to finish. Their ANTI- labelmate Andy Shauf opens this show.
Lake Ruth, 'When Harry Met Sally' @ Solar One Rooftop Films
Part of the LOL Music Series, tonight has baroque pop band Lake Ruth playing before a screening of When Harry Met Sally. Kind of a strange pairing (Lake Ruth seem more Hal Hartley than Rob Reiner), but Lake Ruth don't play very often so take this chance to see them when you can. Plus it's free.
Ice Balloons, King Pussyface, Cinema Cinema, Chorizo, Lex Loser @ The Grand Victory
There aren't many nights of Grand Victory left (it closes on Sunday) so head that way tonight and see Kyp Malone's band Ice Balloons and more.
Lydia Lunch's Underground Salon @ The Roxy Hotel
No wave legend Lydia Lunch presents this show with “scandalous storytelling” from Lunch, Jerry Stahl, and downtown perennials Bibbe and Zoe Hansen. The show will also feature free jazz sets from her Retrovirus bandmates Weasel Walter and Tim Dahl, as well as Chris Pitsiokos. The talks promise a host of “sleazy” stories from NYC’s hectic underground history.
Vic Mensa, Joey Purp @ Webster Hall Marlin Room
Chicago rappers and collaborators Vic Mensa and Joey Purp both have solid new releases out this year, and they’re currently on tour together. Tonight’s their second of two NYC shows.
Cake Shop Comedy! @ Cake Shop
If you miss Big Terrific and Hannibal Buress’ Sunday night show at Knit, and are looking for a new free, weekly comedy show that happens in a rock club and sometimes has big name talent stop by unexpectedly, “Cake Shop Comedy” might do the trick.
We Don't Even Know ft. Ted Leo, Jodie Wasserman, Christy Karacas @ HiFi
This is a live taping of the 'We Don't Even Know' podcast hosted by Christian Felix and Shonali Bhowmik. Tonight's guests include Ted Leo, Christy Karacas (who used to play guitar in Cheeseburger and created Adult Swim's 'Superjail!') and comedian Jodie Wasserman.
Seth Herzog's SWEET: Stand Up Comedy Show @ The Slipper Room
Seth Herzog hosts this long-running comedy night that always features great guests.
Punderdome @ Highline Ballroom
Comedian Jo Firestone and her dad, Fred, host this live game show that encourages you to be the cheesiest you can. The bigger the groan, the better. Usually held at Brooklyn's Littlefield, Punderdome moves to bigger Manhattan digs tonight for a special 'NY Post Edition' of the show which, if you're familiar with the paper's headlines, should be pretty good.
Travi$ Scott, Metro Boomin, Madeintyo @ Ford Amphitheater at Coney Island Boardwalk
Travi$ Scott continues to get bigger and bigger, thanks to some undeniable songs (like "Antidote"). Tonight's show is with the great young beatmaker Metro Boomin (Future, Drake, Kanye, etc) and Madintoyo (whose “Uber Everywhere” Travis recently remixed).
Toys That Kill, Big Eyes, Weird Skin, Nadir @ Sunnyvale
Toys That Kill's new album Sentimental Ward is more of the instant-classic raw pop punk that frontman Todd Congelliere has been churning out for decades. If you're going tonight, don't miss Big Eyes.
Bombino, Breakdown Brass, Mamarazzi @ Brooklyn Bowl
Tuareg guitarist Bombino returned this year with Azel, which he made with Dirty Projectors' Dave Longstreth.
Leaf, Nitty Scott, Young M.A. @ SOB's
Tonight's 'Hot 97 Presents Who's Next' show at SOB's has an all-female lineup of rising rappers.
