What’s going on Wednesday?
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Corridor, Deeper, Hypoluxo @ Rough Trade
Montreal's Corridor are sinewy and serpentine, with with guitar lines, bass, drums and harmonies combining for a propulsive psychedelic live experience that knows no language barrier (but they do sing in French). They're on tour with Chicago's Deeper who pull from a similar sonic palette, making this a fantastic double bill.
Lankum, Katie Kim @ Mercury Lounge
Known for their live show, Irish folk band Lankum mixes ambient, drone, psych, male and female vocals, and more sounds for a truly captivating and sometimes hypnotic experience that appeals to indie, traditional Celtic music fans and metalheads alike. Fellow Irish folk singer Katie Kim who contributed vocals to their 2019 album, opens Wednesday’s show. Not surprisingly, it is sold out, but where there’s a will there’s a way...
Orville Peck, Kitty Cash (DJ set), Hank (DJ set), Mona (DJ set) @ MoMA
Masked Canadian dreampop country singer Orville Peck, who released his debut album on Sub Pop last year, headlines the 2020 edition of the MoMA Armory Party tonight, which seems like the ultimate place to see him.
