You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Ty Segall, Purling Hiss @ Warsaw
Having recently released his ninth solo record Ty Segall and his Freedom Band (featuring regular players Mikal Cronin and Charles Moothart) hit NYC for a sold-out three-night stand at Warsaw.
Real Estate, Frankie Cosmos @ Brooklyn Steel
With another pleasingly pleasant album, In Mind, New Jersey's jangly Real Estate play their first of two Brooklyn Steel shows tonight.
Thick, Cool Ghouls, Boytoy, Human People @ Our Wicked Lady
San Francisco's Cool Ghouls make the kind of music their hometown was known for 50 years ago: psychedelic, tuneful and rockin'. Be sure to pick up their tour-only cassette, Gorde's Horse, at the merch table.
Mystic Braves, The Creation Factory, Las Hormiguitas @ Union Pool
LA psych outfit Mystic Braves look and sound like they were just teleported from 1967. Catch them tonight with fellow likeminded LA garage rockers The Creation Factory.
Sir Richard Bishop (of Sun City Girls), Robert Millis @ The Park Church Co-Op
Guitar master and Sun City Girl member Richard Bishop plays tonight with sound artist, composer and past collaborator Robert Mills.
Metallica, Volbeat @ NYCB Live, home of the Nassau Coliseum
Last year, Metallica returned with the new album Hardwired… To Self-Destruct, which wasn’t half bad. It’s a throwback to Metallica’s classic thrash sound, and in a live setting, the new stuff works well with the old favorites. Tonight’s their second of two NYC-area shows this week.
Clutch, Lucero, The Sword @ The Capitol Theatre
This is a cool bill all around, with stoner rockers Clutch, country punks Lucero, and doomy rockers The Sword.
Gov't Mule, The Chris Robinson Brotherhood @ Central Park SummerStage
Having done stints in the Allman Brothers Band and Grateful Dead-related projects, Warren Haynes is basically an honorary member of the first generation of jam bands. His own band Gov't Mule has been at it for over two decades, and they'll release their next album Revolution Come...Revolution Go this June.
Andy Shauf, Julia Jacklin @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Last year, Canadian songwriter Andy Shauf released The Party on ANTI- and Australian songwriter Julia Jacklin released Don't Let the Kids Win on Polyvinyl. They're on tour together in continued support of those albums.
Holly Macve, Clarence Bucaro @ Rough Trade
Holly MacVe was born in Ireland and raised in Yorkshire, but she nails a modern update on traditional American folk music. Her debut album Golden Eagle came out on Bella Union earlier this year.
