You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Weyes Blood @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Having released the gorgeous Titanic Rising earlier this year, Natalie Mering brings Weyes Blood's live show to Brooklyn. We're sure it will sound great, but also hoping the stage design has a little of the album cover's imagination.
Velvet Negroni, Andrea Valle @ Baby's All Right
Velvet Negroni is the project of Minneapolis artist and musician Jeremy Nutzman. He’s previously released music as Pony Bwoy and Spyder Baybie Raw Dog, and appeared on albums from fellow Minneapolis acts Polica, Har Mar Superstar, and Marijuana Deathsquads, but this current project is the one that caught the attention of Bon Iver and now has him signed with 4AD.
The Distillers, Starcrawler @ Brooklyn Steel
Early 2000s punk greats The Distillers reunited in 2018, playing their first shows since breaking up in 2006 are also working on their first new album in 16 years. LA punks Starcrawler make for a good opener.
Rufus Wainwright @ City Winery
Rufus has toured with full bands and orchestras but he doesn't really need more than himself and a piano to mesmerize. He'll do just that at this intimate show tonight.
The Voidz, Promiseland, True Blue @ Market Hotel
Ahead of their appearance at this weekend's Governors Ball festival, Julian Casablancas' other band plays this sold out, sure-to-be-sweaty Market Hotel show.
Cult Records Pop-Up Shop
Speaking of Julian, his label, Cult Records, is celebrating its 10th anniversary with a pop-up shop this week at 98 Orchard in the Lower East Side. Today features DJ sets from members of Public Access TV, The Virgins, Cults, Minty Boi, Gnarcissists, Cerebral Balzy and more. Noon-8 PM.
Baths, Pictureplane @ Mercury Lounge
Part of Mercury Lounge's 25th anniversary, this late show is a very good double bill of Anticon's Baths and electronic producer Pictureplane.
Haruomi Hosono (of Yellow Magic Orchestra) @ Gramercy Theatre
Best known in the U.S. as one-third of influential Japanese synthpop icons Yellow Magic Orchestra, Haruomi Hosono also made records with a few other notable groups first (Apryl Fool, Tin Pan Alley and Happy End), not to mention many solo records before, during, and after his work with YMO. He’s celebrating the 50th anniversary of his major label debut and having just released a reworked version of his solo debut, Haruomi is playing special NYC and L.A. shows.
Lord Dying, Year of the Cobra Saint @ Vitus Bar
Portland’s Lord Dying dropped their third album, Mysterium Tremendum, last month and found them exploring past their sludge MO and heading into heavy rock and prog.
Cameron Esposito @ Union Hall
Comedian Cameron Esposito continues her run at Brooklyn’s Union Hall tonight, where she’ll be working out her newest show, Cameron Esposito: Separately.
Xenia Rubinos, Public Practice, Blood Club @ Murmrr Ballroom
The Baffler presents this show that begins with members of the groups talking with editor Liz Pelly about the pros and cons of streaming music.
