What’s going on Wednesday?
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
KEN mode, Birds In Row, Crushed @ Saint Vitus
KEN mode and Birds In Row are on tour together, which makes for a killer pairing of heavy post-hardcore bands with great 2018 albums. This show has local support from Crushed, who fit the lineup perfectly.
Brockhampton @ Terminal 5
Brockhampton’s great new album Iridescence is out now, and they’re about to do three nights at NYC’s huge Terminal 5. This is night three and it’s sold out.
Justin Timberlake @ Madison Square Garden
Justin Timberlake is touring behind his divisive new album Man of the Woods, but whether or not you dig this new earthy side of JT, he’s guaranteed to break out countless old faves tonight and put on a spectacular show.
We Were Promised Jetpacks, Hurry Up @ Asbury Lanes
Scottish indie rockers We Were Promised Jetpacks are on the road supporting their new album The More I Sleep, The Less I Dream. They're hitting Asbury Park tonight and Brooklyn next week, and both shows have solid support from Thermals offshoot Hurry Up.
Steely Dan @ Beacon Theatre
The late Walter Becker will surely be missed at this nine-show Beacon Theatre run that continues tonight with the band playing Countdown to Ecstasy in full, plus other favorites.
Kikagaku Moyo, J Fernandez, Garcia Peoples @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Japanese psych band Kikagaku Moyo released new album Masana Temples which is group’s most focused batch of songs to date, combining folk, jazzy sunshine pop, groovy krautrock, noisy wig-outs and more. Live they are something else indeed. Go, and go early for J. Fernandez's opening set.
Boy Azooga, Surf Rock is Dead @ Rough Trade
Welsh band Boy Azooga released 1, 2, Kung Fu!, their debut album, earlier this year via Heavenly. Led by Cardiff’s Davey Newington, the band incorporate a variety of influences into their idiosyncratic style, including ’90s alt riff rock, Mac DeMarco-type underwater romanticism and that indescribable Welsh magic (see Super Furry Animals and Cate Le Bon).
The Breeders, Melkbelly @ Stone Pony
The Breeders lineup that gave us Last Splash made this year's super fun All Nerve and and play with a joie de vivre that is more 1993 than 2018.
"Selected Shorts w/ John Darnielle, Michael Shannon, Molly Ringwald, Kathryn Erbe, Peter Jay Fernandez @ Symphony Space
Mountain Goats frontman John Darnielle is curating this "special evening of favorite stories” for Symphony Space’s ‘Selected Shorts’ series and has assembled quite a lineup of storytellers including actors Michael Shannon, Molly Ringwald, Kathryn Erbe and Peter Jay Fernandez.
She Wants Revenge, Mykki Blanco, Tessa Rae @ Irving Plaza
Mid 2000s era goth pop rockers She Wants Revenge are headlining this show, and in sort of an unexpected pairing, boundary-pushing rapper Mykki Blanco is opening (and is very worth catching).
Padma Lakshmi, Nikki Glaser, Jo Firestone, Jo Firestone, Roy Wood Jr., Ziwe Fumudoh, Catherine Cohen, Larry Owens, Pat Regan, Matt Rogers, Bowen Yang, John Early @ The Bell House (2 shows)
Padma Lakshmi is presenting this night of comedy (across two shows) featuring featuring “comedians who are *not* Louis C.K.”
Springsteen on Broadway
The Boss continues his sold-out “Springsteen on Broadway” run at the Walter Kerr Theatre, which runs through December. At these shows, Bruce is giving fans shows “that are as personal and as intimate as possible.”
Look Vibrant, Store Front, Josh H @ Trans Pecos
Store Front, the new band featuring featuring former TPOBPAH member Peggy Wang and fronted by writer and Broadly senior editor Amy Rose Spiegel, play their first show tonight at Trans Pecos with Look Vibrant and Josh H.
