What’s going on Wednesday?
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Shabazz Palaces, Finding Novyon, Doug Hream Blunt @ Baby's All Right
Tonight, Baby's All Right hosts the latest BrooklynVegan-curated installment of Red Bull Sound Select, which is headlined by avant-rap group Shabazz Palaces (member of the reunited Digable Planets). Before Shabazz, it's rising Minneapolis rapper Finding Noyvon and cult funk musician Doug Hream Blunt. Admission is $3 with RSVP. First come, first served.
Bear Vs Shark, All Dogs @ Market Hotel
Bear vs Shark were around for two albums in the early 2000s of arty post-hardcore that have lived up really well. They're currently on their BrooklynVegan-presented reunion tour, which lands in NYC tonight for its first of two sold-out shows here.
Green Day, Dog Party @ Starland Ballroom
Green Day are about to release their new album, Revolution Radio, and in celebration of that, they're on a club tour playing much smaller venues than they usually do. Tonight they play Jersey with the very promising Asian Man-signed garage punks Dog Party. They'll hit NYC next week.
The Lemon Twigs, Methyl Ethel, Pixx @ Irving Plaza
Tonight is the '4AD Revue,' where the longrunning indie label shows off three of its newest signings: young, hypertalented group The Lemon Twigs; Australia's Methyl Ethel; and UK pop act Pixx who is making her U.S. live debut. This show is free with RSVP.
Britta Phillips (performs "Luck or Magic"), Idgy Dean @ (le) poisson rouge
Luna bassist (and former member of The Belltower) Britta Phillips released her solo debut earlier this year. She'll perform it in full tonight with some help from husband Dean Wareham.
Miike Snow, Charles Bradley and His Extraordinaires @ Radio City Music Hall
Swedish pop act Miike Snow, who released their third album earlier this year, and tonight play their biggest, fanciest NYC headlining show yet. Don't miss the great Charles Bradley who opens.
Astronautalis, Oxymorrons @ Brooklyn Bowl
For fans of alternative hip hop, this double bill is for you.
Miserable, Bod, Ritual Humor @ Alphaville
Kristina Esfandiari records as both King Woman and as Miserable (and she’s a former member of Whirr), and right now she’s on the road in support of Miserable’s 2016 LP Uncontrollable.
Entrance, Liza Thorn, Reuben Hollebon @ Mercury Lounge
Guy Blakeslee recently released a new ENTRANCE EP, Promises, on Thrill Jockey, and it’s more of the kinda-psychedelic pop he’s been churning out for a while now. He’s been on tour with Beach House, but this week plays two of his own small shows in NYC. This is the second.
Roosevelt, Shallou @ Rough Trade
Electronic musician Roosevelt (aka Marius Lauber) recently released his debut full-length on City Slang/Greco Roman, and this week he brings his tour with a band (they’re a trio live) to NYC for two shows. This is the second.
Spotlights, Netherlands, Haan @ Saint Vitus
This is a cool bill for fans of heavy music, with sludgegazers Spotlights, experimentalists Netherlands, and the noisy/sludgy Haan.
Xylouris White @ Union Pool
Xylouris White, the experimental duo made up of Cretan lutist George Xylouris and Dirty Three drummer Jim White, release their second album, Black Peak, next week but tonight's the record release show.
The Scenics @ Cake Shop
Toronto’s The Scenics were an art-punk/new wave band who formed in 1976, drawing a lot of influence from what was going on in New York at the time (Talking Heads, Ramones, Lou Reed, Television), and released one single and an album before calling it quits in 1981. They reformed in the late '00s and this is their first NYC show in eons.
Tom Jones @ The Wellmont Theater
Armed with those powerful pops, tongue-in-cheek bravado and a whole bunch of hits, it’s not unusual to want to see Tom Jones in 2016.
Death Valley Girls, PMS and the Moodswings @ Monty Hall
Death Valley Girls‘ Glow in the Dark came out back the spring, a very appealing witches brew of garage, psych and glam. They play Brooklyn tomorrow.
