What’s going on Wednesday?
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Low @ National Sawdust
Low's truly stunning new album Double Negative is out now and it's like nothing they've ever done before. They'll bring these unique songs to life across three nights at Brooklyn's National Sawdust, starting tonight.
Face to Face (acoustic), Austin Lucas @ City Winery
Punk vets Face to Face stripped down some of their most classic songs (and newer ones) for their first-ever acoustic album, and they're now on an acoustic tour. Country-punk singer/songwriter Austin Lucas, who recently released Immortal Americans, is worth catching too.
Dinosaur Jr., Easy Action @ White Eagle Hall
Mastodon sadly had to cancel their tour with Dinosaur Jr but Dinosaur Jr are making up for it by playing some very intimate headlining shows instead. Their old pals Easy Action (ft. John Brannon of Negative Approach) are opening.
Fear, L.E.S. Stitches, Nervous Triggers @ House of Independents
Fear helped shape hardcore punk (and by extension, alternative rock and post-hardcore and beyond) as we know it with their classic 1982 debut album The Record, which they just played in full at Riot Fest over the weekend. Now they're continuing their 40th anniversary tour, which has also been heavily leaning on that album.
Pohgoh, Flower, Caithlin De Marrais (of Rainer Maria) @ Mercury Lounge
Indie/emo vets Pohgoh recently released their first album in 20 years, and they actually sound even sharper than they did in the '90s. Their old pal Caithlin De Marrais of likeminded band Rainer Maria opens the show.
Courtney Marie Andrews, Michaela Anne @ Rough Trade
Folk/country singer Courtney Marie Andrews released the gorgeous May Your Kindness Remain on Fat Possum earlier this year, and she's back out on the road in continued support of it.
Hilary Woods, Shilpa Ray, Hether Fortune @ Saint Vitus
Dublin dark singer/songwriter Hilary Woods released her debut album Colt earlier this year on Sacred Bones, and it was co-produced by metal-turned-electronic musician James Kelly (of Altar of Plauges, WIFE, and Bliss Signal). If you dig stuff like Chelsea Wolfe and Emma Ruth Rundle, you'll probably dig Hilary too. It's a great bill all around with punk-blues lifer Shilpa Ray, and Hether Fortune of the recently-broken-up Wax Idols.
Juana Molina, Loosie @ Brooklyn Bowl
Argentine experimental singer/songwriter Juana Molina is back in the US in continued support of last year's very good, very unique Halo.
Cumulus, Bartees & The Strange Fruit, Great Wight @ Elsewhere Zone One
Seattle indie rock musician Alexandra Niedzialkowski is releasing a new Cumulus album next week on Chris Walla's label, and she's playing NYC ahead of its release tonight.
Red Fang, Big Business, Dead Now @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
It's a triple threat of stoner sludge with Red Fang, Big Business, and Dead Now (ex-Torche).
Michael Hurley, Darren Hanlon @ Union Pool
Storied folk veteran Michael Hurley, whose career dates back to the ’60s Greenwich Village scene, is on tour now with Australia’s Darren Hanlon opening. Tonight's show is sold out.
Butch Walker, Greg Holden @ Asbury Lanes
Long-running singer/songwriter Butch Walker hasn't released a new album in two years but he's got a very large catalog to pull from on this current tour, which hits Asbury Park tonight and NYC on Sunday.
