What’s going on Wednesday?
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Be Forest, Monograms, Activity @ Elsewhere Zone One
Italian trio Be Forest make a moody brand of shoegaze, part Slouvaki-era Slowdive and part gothy 4AD, and create a lot of sound with just three people. This is the last show of their tour and it's worth getting there to see Activity, the new band from Travis and Steve of Grooms.
Candy, Abuse of Power, Ekulu, Regional Justice Center, Rule Them All, Muscle Before Paradise @ Gold Sounds
Gold Sounds hosts a ridiculously stacked hardcore bill tonight, headlined by Candy who are fresh off playing shows with Nothing, Gorilla Biscuits, and others.
Remember Sports, Joey Nebulous, youbet @ Brooklyn Bazaar
Since releasing their 2018 album Slow Buzz, Ohio indine-punks Remember Sports have gone on a few big tours (one with The Get Up Kids, one with Jeff Rosenstock and Joyce Manor), and now they're back in NYC for a headlining show.
Open Mike Eagle, Sammus, Video Dave @ Rough Trade
Indie-rapper Open Mike Eagle's What Happens When I Try To Relax EP was one of our favorite rap releases of 2018, and like his recorded music, his live shows are off-kilter but strangely addictive. Sammus makes for well-matched support.
Modeselektor, Shy Eyez Elsewhere Hall
German dance music duo and frequent Apparat and Thom Yorke collaborators Modeselektor just released new album Who Else?
Jenny Slate @ Gramercy Theatre (2 shows)
You may know her from SNL, Big Mouth or her much-missed weekly Brooklyn variety show Big Terrific. Here she is playing two big headline shows in her old stomping grounds.
Terry Riley, Gyan Riley @ Le Poisson Rouge
Composer, minimalism pioneer and living legend Terry Riley helped reimagine classical music in the '60s. Tonight he presents this evening of music with his son, Terry.
The Sadies, Girls on Grass @ Union Pool
Twangy Canadian rock greats The Sadies had to cancel dates last year after drummer Mike Belitsky broke his shoulder, but he’s recovered and, having just wrapped up a tour with Kurt Vile, hit Union Pool for a makeup three-show run.
The Talent Show: Second Coming @ Littlefield
Elna Baker and Kevin Townley's variety show has a lot of big name talent this week: Ira Glass, John Hodgman, Chris Gethard, Michelle Buteau and more TBA.
