You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Post Malone, SZA, Ty Dolla $ign, Cheat Codes @ Pier 36
SZA has been having a killer year thanks to the popularity of her debut album Ctrl and its multiple singles. She played a free show at The Box earlier this year which predictably was a shitshow, and she promised she'd do another freebie in NYC before the end of the year. This Pandora-sponsored show is that, and it also includes big rappers/singers Post Malone and Ty Dolla $ign. SZA plays two ticketed shows here next week.
Young M.A, Yerr Eli, Jezz Gasoline, Korleone, DJ Relly Rell @ Brooklyn Bowl
New York rapper Young M.A continues to rise off the strength of breakout single "OOOUUU" and the rest of her material which is really close to as good. She says she'll release her debut album in 2018. Meanwhile, she plays a hometown show tonight.
Prurient, Alberich, Void Vision @ Elsewhere
Last week, Prurient released Rainbow Mirror, a 3+ hour trek through harsh noise. Tonight he'll bring those sounds to life at this album release show.
Charly Bliss, Mannequin Pussy, Remember Sports, DJ Gabriela Tully Playmore @ Baby's All Right
This sold-out show is Stereogum's Christmas party, headlined by the increasingly popular Charly Bliss and featuring two indie-punk openers that are worth getting there on time for.
Wolf Alice @ Wonder Bar
London alt-rockers Wolf Alice returned this year with their sophomore album, Visions of a Life, which has gotten even more critical acclaim than their buzzy 2015 debut. They played Brooklyn Steel last night, and tonight they play this smaller show in Asbury Park.
Morning Teleportation, Baked @ Mercury Lounge
Kentucky's psych groovers Morning Teleportation released new album Salivating for Symbiosis earlier this year and tonight is their first NYC show in two years.
Sam Shepard book release party w/ Patti Smith, Lenny Kaye, Tony Shanahan @ St. Ann & The Holy Trinity
Author Sam Shepard passed away earlier this year, and his final book Spy of the First Person comes out today. To celebrate the release, Patti Smith and longtime bandmates Lenny Kaye and Tony Shanahan will "present an evening of words and music."
Springsteen on Broadway
The Boss is currently in the midst of his completely sold-out “Springsteen on Broadway” run at the Walter Kerr Theatre, which has now been extended through June! At these shows, Bruce plans to give fans shows “that are as personal and as intimate as possible.”
Gary Numan, Me Not You @ White Eagle Hall
Postpunk icon Gary Numan, whose songs "Are Friends Electric? and "Cars" helped form the blueprint that is still being used today in synthpop, put out the well-received Savage this year.
Communion NYC w/ Common Holly & more @ Rockwood Music Hall
Communion is presenting a showcase at Rockwood Music Hall tonight with a pretty large lineup, including one of our favorite up and comers, Montreal singer/songwriter Common Holly.
The Messthetics, Royal Arctic Institute, High Disciple @ Saint Vitus
The Messthetics are a new instrumental trio featuring Brendan Canty and Joe Lally, who you may also know as Fugazi’s rhythm section. The band are rounded out by experimental/jazz guitarist Anthony Pirog who has played with Henry Kaiser, Elliot Sharp, Mary Halvorson, as well as in groups. Tonight's show is with The Royal Arctic Institute — another instrumental trio which features former members of Phantom Tollbooth, Das Damen, Roky Erickson’s backing band, and more.
'Song Stories: Bowie' w/ Mark Mothersbaugh, Meredith Graves, Nikki Sixx, Mick Rock @ Sonos New York
Much like they did in London a few weeks back, SONOS is presenting a night of David Bowie-related at its flagship store in Soho. Titled “Song Stories: Bowie,” the event will feature photographer Mick Rock, Motley Crue’s Nikki Sixx, Devo’s Mark Mothersbaugh and Perfect Pussy singer and MTV News host Meredith Graves all talking about the late pop icon as well as spinning some of his songs.
Bridget Everett @ Joe’s Pub
With an Amazon pilot that will hopefully become a series, Bridget Everette could soon be a lot more well-known, so don’t miss a chance to catch her unexpurgated live show with backing band The Tender Moments.
