What’s going on Wednesday?
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Cate Le Bon, Vivien Goldman, Moon Diagrams @ Elsewhere Hall
Written in seclusion while she was learning to be a woodworker (it's good to have other skills with the music industry the way it is), Reward is unlike any record she's made before, achingly sad and powerful. She's always worth seeing live.
Kikagaku Moyo, Sarah Louise @ Elsewhere Rooftop
Japanese psych band Kikagaku Moyo released Masana Temples last year and have been touring ever since, and just played Central Park with Khruangbin. Their live show, which includes an electric sitar player, is memorable and should make for nice sunset music on Elsewhere's rooftop.
WorldPride 2019 Opening Ceremony w/ Cyndi Lauper, Whoopi Goldberg, Todrick Hall, Ciara, Chaka Khan, Billy Porter, Daya @ Barclays Center
2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising and half a century of LGBTQ liberation, and to mark the occasion, NYC is hosting an enormous WorldPride celebration. Festivities kick off with an “official opening ceremony” in the form of this big concert at Barclays.
Jackson Browne, Lucius @ Beacon Theatre
Legendary songwriter Jackson Browne continues his four-night run at Beacon Theatre tonight, accompanied by very solid openers Lucius, who Jackson has praised in the past.
Foxwarren, Hannah Cohen @ Bowery Ballroom
Foxwarren, the band led by Andy Shauf that includes his lifelong friends Dallas Bryson (guitar/vocals) and brothers Darryl Kissick (bass) and Avery Kissick (drums & percussion), have been together for over 10 years but only released their debut album back in November. They're now on their first-ever tour.
Devotchka, The Ballroom Thieves @ Brooklyn Bowl
Gypsy punk folk cabaret ensemble DeVotchKa play their first of two consecutive nights at Brooklyn Bowl.
Alvvays, The Courtneys, Ellis @ SummerStage in Central Park
Canada Day is not till Monday but you can celebrate early with this terrific triple bill of Canadian indie rock talent.
Buck Meek, Alena Spanger @ Union Pool
Big Thief guitarist, who released solo album last year that should appeal to Neil Young fans, warms up for his appearance at Wilco's Solid Sound Festival with this show.
Regina Spektor @ Lunt Fontanne Theatre
“I am so inspired as I plan these five nights on Broadway at the Lunt-Fontanne, a beautiful old theater with a rich history,” Regina says of her Broadway residency which wraps up tonight. “One of the things I’m most excited about is the chance to explore theatrical elements within my concert show. This isn’t a ‘Broadway Show,’ and yet it’s not a tour concert, either. I’m revisiting all the songs I’ve ever written, to see how some of them might group together and connect into a show. I am thinking up some fun ways to incorporate special guests as well.”
Buddy Guy @ Sony Hall
We don't have many blues legends left, but Buddy is still with us, showing us how Chicago Blues is done.
Marco Benevento, Lauren Ruth Ward @ Industry City
Marco Benevento bridged the gap between indie rock and jam band way before that became a trend, and he's gearing up for a new album this year called Let It Slide. Most details on the LP are still TBA, but maybe he'll preview some new stuff tonight.
Adam Sandler @ PNC Bank Arts Center
The Sandman has been in the midst of a comeback thanks to his acclaimed new Netflix special 100% Fresh, the very funny episode of SNL he recently hosted, and the newly-released Netflix movie Murder Mystery with Jennifer Aniston, and he’s also taking his show on the road with the 100% Fresher Tour. Having recently played Jones Beach, he hits NJ tonight.
Faye Webster, Jenny O. @ Baby's All Right
Faye Webster recently released her new album Atlanta Millionaires Club on Secretly Canadian, and it's a very pleasant update on '70s-style folk.
