You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Soccer Mommy, Gabe Wax @ Elsewhere
Soccer Mommy‘s Fat Possum debut Clean is one of the most enjoyable indie pop albums of the year, and she continues to tour like crazy in support of it. This is her first of two headlining shows in NYC this week, and she'll be back to open for Liz Phair in early June and to open for Paramore in late June.
The Breeders, Melkbelly @ The Capitol Theatre
Highly influential indie rock vets The Breeders recently returned with the very solid All Nerve, their first album in a decade (and first with the Last Splash lineup since Last Splash). They’re supporting that album on tour now, and tonight’s their third of three NYC-area shows. This one's with Melkbelly, who probably own a copy of Last Splash.
Brian Fallon & The Howling Weather, Caitlin Rose @ Brooklyn Steel
The Gaslight Anthem are finally back from hiatus and touring their best album The ’59 Sound this year for its 10th anniversary, but first, frontman Brian Fallon is doing a solo tour in support of his new album Sleepwalkers. Caitlin Rose’s set is not to miss either.
The Weeks, Becca Mancari @ Bowery Ballroom
The Weeks headline this show, and if you’re going, we strongly recommend showing up for opener Becca Mancari. Her 2017 album Good Woman finds the middle ground between indie rock and alt-country, and it’s great stuff. Her live show is very solid too.
Imarhan, Quicksilver Daydream @ Rough Trade
Imarhan are associates of fellow Tuareg band Tinariwen (whose Eyadou Ag Leche co-produced Imarhan's new album Temet), and like Tinariwen, their music is pretty similar in sound to what Americans and Brits call "psychedelic rock." It's great stuff, and their live show tonight should be a real treat.
No Age, Behaviors, Bodega @ Brooklyn Bazaar
Poster boys for L.A.'s DIY scene, noise punk duo No Age returned this year with Snares Like a Haircut, their first album for Drag City. If you're going tonight, get their early for Bodega whose forthcoming Endless Scroll is one of 2018's best debuts so far.
Alejandro Escovedo, Don Dilego and the Tourists, The Tall Pines @ Coney Island Baby
Roots rock and cowpunk vet Alejandro Escovedo is making an all-out assault on NYC this month, playing a ton of shows at small venues all over the city. He begins tonight with the just opened Coney Island Baby.
The Hum w/ Jessica Lea Mayfield, Anni Rossi, Nicole Schneit @ House of Yes
The Hum, which offers up all manor of unique collaborations, is back and will be staying at House of Yes in May. Tonight's should be excellent with Jessica Lea Mayfield leading the way.
Kate Nash, Miya Folick @ Irving Plaza
While she's got a budding acting career these days -- you may have seen her on Netflix's GLOW -- UK singing-songwriter Kate Nash is also back with her first new new album in five years, Yesterday Was Forever.
'Lazarus' screening w/ live band @ King's Theatre
David Bowie and Enda Walsh’s musical, Lazarus, ran off-Broadway in NYC and was also perfomed in London. The London production was filmed for a movie which premieres tonight with a live soundtrack from the seven-piece band that backed Michael C Hall in the NYC production.
Twin Shadow, Yuno @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
George Lewis Jr just released Caer, his fourth album as Twin Shadow which finds him dabbling in modern pop styles alongside his '80s arena rock tendencies.
Springsteen on Broadway
The Boss continues his sold-out “Springsteen on Broadway” run at the Walter Kerr Theatre, which has now been extended through December. At these shows, Bruce is giving fans shows “that are as personal and as intimate as possible.”
You’ll Have Fun @ The Revision Lounge
Hosts Chris Calogero, Nicki Wright, Danny Stratton & John Rosenberger host this biweekly showcase featuring the best up-and-coming comedians from New York. This week’s lineup includes Sydnee Washington (Unofficial Experts Podcast), Dan Licata (Adult Swim), Mara Wiles(Hidden America with Jonah Ray), and Peter Brieck (Whiskey Bear Comedy Festival).
