You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight’s shows, but here are some highlights…
As you probably know, weather reports are calling for a “crippling and possibly historic” blizzard starting in mid-afternoon today. We’ll try to keep you up to date on show cancellations, but if it gets bad you might want to call the venue to make sure it’s still happening. Be safe.
Bully, Oxen Free, Brave Shores @ Pianos
Nashville’s Bully got some buzz during CMJ for their catchy indie rock. We’re still awaiting their album, but in the meantime they return to NYC tonight.
Action Bronson @ BB King’s
Action Bronson’s got a new album on the way this March, and from the single he put out, anticipation is pretty high. Hopefully we’ll hear a few more new ones tonight.
Zola Jesus, UNIFORM @ Saint Vitus
Zola Jesus is still riding high off last year’s Taiga, her biggest-sounding album yet and first for a big label. But while last year she supported it at Webster Hall, this week she gets more intimate with two Saint Vitus shows (both sold out). This is the second, and opening tonight is noise duo UNIFORM (ex-Drunkdriver, The Men).
Broncho, Dreamers, Heaven @ Rough Trade
Oklahoma’s Broncho make a good mix of power pop, garage rock, and some more out-there stuff too. In two days from now, they open for Billy Idol at Beacon Theatre, but here’s your chance to catch them in a more intimate setting.
Nels Cline & the Les Paul Trio @ Iridium
There’s rarely a lack of chances to catch guitar great Nels Cline in NYC. Tonight he’s with The Les Paul Trio at the Iridium for two shows (8 PM and 10 PM).
Years and Years @ Le Poisson Rouge
Winners of the BBC’s “Sound of 2015″ Poll (last year was Sam Smith; 2013 was Haim), UK act Years & Years make slick electronic R&B. This is their first US show. Sold out.
Savages @ Baby’s All Right
Tonight starts Savages’ final week of their nine-show NYC residency. What new surprises are in store?
Vomitface, Whiskey Bitches, Pixels, Lip Action @ Cake Shop
Jersey City trio Vomitface make sludgy, grungy rock and this is the final night of their January residency at Cake Shop.
Night Train @ Littlefield
Pheobe Robinson fills in for usual host Wyatt Cenac at this weekly comedy series tonight features guests Brooks Wheelan (who you may have seen on HBO’s Girls recently), Hasan Minhaj, Liza Treyger, Tanael Joachim and more.
Marilyn Manson @ Terminal 5
Veteran shock rocker Marilyn Manson has been getting some of the best reviews of his career for his new album, The Pale Emperor. The very young band Unlocking the Truth open tonight.
For all of tonight’s shows, and tomorrow’s, check out our NYC concert calendar.
