What’s going on Wednesday?
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
How To Dress Well, Baltra @ Good Room
How To Dress Well's great new album The Anteroom is his most experimental yet, but it still has that unmistakable HTDW R&B falsetto keeping things familiar. Tonight's his first NYC show since its release.
A$AP Ferg @ 201 Mulberry Street
A$AP Ferg puts on a super fun live show, so it's good news that he's staying busy and playing a handful of local shows this month. This one's for Sony's new pop-up concert series.
Los Campesinos!, Adult Mom @ Elsewhere
Los Campesinos! quickly gained internet buzz after releasing their first two albums in 2008, and they’ve maintained a diehard fanbase for the past decade, while also progressing their sound in interesting ways. This tour is in celebration of the 10th anniversary of their first two LPs (though going by Setlist.fm, it looks like they’re playing career-spanning sets). This is their second of two Elsewhere shows.
Jorja Smith @ Guggenheim Museum
British R&B/soul singer Jorja Smith is about to support her very good debut album Lost & Found on a headlining North American tour, but first she performs at the pre-party for the 2018 Guggenheim International Gala tonight. Tickets start at $225 for members and $250 for members.
6LACK, Tierra Whack, Summer Walker @ Hammerstein Ballroom
Atlanta R&B singer 6LACK released his enjoyable new album East Atlanta Love Letter this year and he continues to massively rise. He plays Hammerstein Ballroom tonight and Terminal 5 tomorrow, and tonight's show has support from promising hip hop newcomer Tierra Whack."
StarTalk Live w/ Neil deGrasse Tyson, Eugene Mirman, James Cameron, Ellie Kemper @ Beacon Theatre
A live taping of the StarTalk television series, James Cameron -- who just announced like 11 Avatar sequels -- will be her to chat with Neil DeGrasse Tyson and Eugene Mirman about unobtanium and why he ditched the Papyrus font.
"The Piano Recital" w/ Kevin Morby, Erin Rae, Matthew E. White, Meg Duffy, King Tuff @ Joe's Pub
This unique show features "successive, solo, performances by artists most often known for playing an instrument other than the piano." Given the talent on board, this should be great.
Jim James (of My Morning Jacket), Alynda Segarra @ The Capitol Theatre
My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James released two related albums this year: Uniform Distortion, and then the acoustic Uniform Clarity. Tonight’s show will be more clarity than distortion as its being billed as a “unique, career-spanning so
Mock Orange, Fire in the Radio, Texarcana @ Knitting Factory Brooklyn
Indie/emo vets Mock Orange's newer music sounds pretty different from their classics, and while their new stuff is good, it's exciting that they're currently playing their fan-fave 1998 album Nines and Sixes in full for its 20th anniversary on this tour.
Saves The Day, Kevin Devine, An Horse @ Warsaw
Saves the Day's only original member is frontman Chris Conley and the new stuff doesn't quite have the same charm that Saves the Day had in their prime, but the classics are still killer live and it's always worth seeing them when they're in town. This show also has great openers: singer/songwriter Kevin Devine and back-in-action indie rockers An Horse.
Tomberlin, Air Waves, Foxes In Fiction @ Rough Trade
Tomberlin makes indie singer/songwriter music influenced by artists like Bright Eyes and Dashboard Confessional, and which should appeal to fans of other modern-day artists like Julien Baker and Phoebe Bridgers. She recently released an expanded version of her debut album At Weddings on Bright Eyes' longtime home of Saddle Creek, and tonight she's back in NYC supporting it.
Tara Jane O'Neil, Soft Fangs, Littleboybigheadonbike, Ryan Sawyer @ Secret Project Robot
Secret Project Robot hosts an all-around cool bill with avant-pop vet Tara Jane O'Neil, bedroom pop acts Soft Fangs and Littleboybigheadonbike, and drummer/experimental artist Ryan Sawyer.
The Story So Far, Turnover, Citizen, Movements @ Starland Ballroom
Popular pop punks The Story So Far headline this show, and if you're going, we especially think it's worth getting there on time for the post-hardcore/alt-rock-leaning Citizen and the dream pop-leaning Turnover. The tour hits NJ's Starland Ballroom tonight and NYC's Playstation Theater tomorrow.
Sadie Dupuis @ Barnard College
Speedy Ortiz' Sadie Dupuis, who just released a book of peotry, returns to Barnard college to "discuss her time at Barnard, feminism, her music career, and poetry.
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."
