What’s going on Wednesday?
For all of tonight's shows, and tomorrow's, check out our NYC concert calendar.
Buffalo Tom (acoustic) @ NY Housing Works
Veteran indie rock band Buffalo Tom are set to release Quiet & Peace, their first album in seven years. Get a previous of it tonight at this very intimate acoustic performance.
Hamilton Leithauser @ Café Carlyle
“Jacket required” is certainly not a problem for snappy dresser and former Walkmen frontman Hamilton Leithauser who continues his 10-night run at swanky dinner club Cafe Carlyle.
Deerhoof, Wadada Leo Smith, Nicole Mitchell, Maroon Cloud @ Le Poisson Rouge (Winter Jazzfest)
The 2018 edition of Winter Jazzfest comes to a close with this collaboration between arty indie rockers Deerhoof and trumpeter, composer and 2015 Pulitzer prize finalist Wadada Leo Smith.
David Cross, Janeane Garofalo, Joe Pera, Jo Firestone, Dan Licata, and more! @ Littlefield
A whole bunch of great comedians tonight are donating their time and talent to this benefit for the Brooklyn New School 3rd Grade Africa Curriculum.
Henry Rollins @ Starland Ballroom
While the idea of looking at slides from your uncle Herb's trip to Europe may not sound exciting, Henry Rollins stories and photos from his travels around the world -- which is in fact what this show is -- could make for an interesting night.
Neko Case, Mt. Joy @ The Capitol Theatre
Following a year busy with New Pornographers shows, Neko Case is in the midst of a solo tour. Hopefully she's playing some new songs -- she hasn't had a new album in nearly five years.
Fire Is Motion, Weller, The Human Fly, Noods @ Trans-Pecos
Last year, Fire Is Motion released the ambitious Still, I Try EP, which has gorgeous vocal harmonies, soaring trumpets, and intricate chamber pop arrangements, and should appeal to fans of classic bands like Neutral Milk Hotel and Broken Social Scene and/or newer bands like Foxing and Mutual Benefit.
Philip Lewin, Itasca, Mike Wexler @ Union Pool
Loner folk legend Philip Lewin reissued his excellent, obscure 1975 debut Am I Really Here All Alone? on the Tompkins Square Label last year, and he's continuing to support it with this NYC show tonight. Opening are two newer artists who pull from the type of folk music that Philip Lewin and his peers helped pioneer, including Itasca, who's working on a followup to 2016's great Open to Chance.
Springsteen on Broadway @ Walter Kerr Theatre
The Boss continues his completely sold-out “Springsteen on Broadway” run at the Walter Kerr Theatre, which has now been extended through June! At these shows, Bruce plans to give fans shows “that are as personal and as intimate as possible.”
Martin Bisi, Haybaby, Machine Girl, Bonnie Baxter @ ALPHAVILLE
Sonic Youth/Swans collaborator Martin Bisi headlines this bill that also features grungy trio Haybaby and more.
