What’s going on Wednesday?
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Superjoint, DevilDriver, King Parrot, Cane Hill, Child Bite @ Gramercy Theatre
One of Phil Anselmo’s many bands, Superjoint (which also includes Jimmy Bower of Eyehategod and Down) returned last year with Caught Up in the Gears of Application, their first album in over a decade. They're on tour now, and it's worth getting to this five-band show early to catch noisy punks Child Bite.
Moses Sumney, Xenia Rubinos @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Moses Sumney has been rising in the world for the past few years, and he just released his excellent debut album, Aromanticism, last month via Jagjaguwar. The album does a great job showcasing his highly impressive voice, and his live shows do an even better job. The genre-defying Xenia Rubinos is worth showing up for too.
Elder, King Buffalo, Set and Setting @ Saint Vitus
Elder are technically a metal band but really their music veers closer to early '70s proggy hard rock, and this year's Reflections of a Floating World is a great example of that. They're on tour with psych rockers King Buffalo, and this show also has quality support from post rockers set and Setting.
Future Islands, Jenny Besetzt @ Brooklyn Steel
Future Islands continue their three-night, sold out run at Brooklyn Steel.
Sparks, Mister Goodnite @ Le Poisson Rouge
For over 40 years Ron and Russell Mael have been making tongue-in-cheek art pop and there is still nobody else quite like Sparks. They’ve just released terrific new album Hippopotamus (their 23rd LP) and BrooklynVegan is psyched to be presenting their two NYC shows (this is night 2, sold out).
Guns N' Roses @ Madison Square Garden
The cheekily titled "Not In This Lifetime Tour" reunites Axl, Slash and Duff and this is GN'R's first of three MSG shows.
"I'm New Here with Jon Ronson and Maeve Higgins" @ Union Halll
"Jon Ronson (writer, showgirl) and Maeve Higgins (comedian, legend) are here to show you around! Each month they assemble comedians interspersed with writers and storytellers and scientists and artists who are fascinating and cool but not necessarily funny, and serve them up in a basement in Brooklyn." Tonight's guests include John Hodgman, Aparna Nancherla, Joe Zimmerman, and Shaina Feinberg.
Sun Seeker @ Union Pool
Nashville's Sun Seeker draw from '60s baroque pop influences like The Zombies and The Left Banke and just released the Biddleford EP via Third Man.
Modest Mouse, METZ @ Starland Ballroom
Modest Mouse haven't released an album since 2015's Strangers to Ourselves, but they always load their setlist with old favorites and they remain a must-see live band. Noise-punks METZ make this a great double bill.
Best Coast, Field Mouse @ White Eagle Hall
Last week, Best Coast opened for Paramore at NYC’s huge, historic Radio City Music Hall. Tonight they’re just outside of NYC for a much smaller headlining show.
Springsteen on Broadway
It’s the hottest ticket on Broadway: Bruce Springsteen playing solo at the intimate Walter Kerr Theatre, performing some of his biggest hits and telling stories about them. His show runs through February.
RIPS, Bodega, Poppies (May Rio solo) @ Berlin
Three good local, post-punk-leaning acts play this benefit for Puerto Rican Hurricane relief.
