Is Tonight the Best Night in the History of Live Music in NYC

01/29/2010 3:15 PM |


I mean, no, it’s probably not, but it’s very, very good—the kind of night that makes your rent ant the giant “water bugs” seem like a small price to pay for being so much cooler than everyone else in the world, by sheer virtue of the fact that cool people are always coming here and performing for us.

So, how should we do this? I guess you could just click over here for our listings page for this evening, but that seems unnecessary. How ’bout we just do it right here. After the jump, your many, many options for live rock music tonight.

Mission of Burma at Bowery Ballroom – 8pm, $20
Les Savy Fav, Vivian Girls at BAM – 8pm, $20
Pure Ecstasy at Bruar Falls – 8pm, FREE
Joseph Arthur and Bobby Bare Jr. at City Winery – 10pm, $15
Sean Bones, Preacher and the Knife at Clemente Soto Velez Cultural Center – 9pm, $TBA

So, choose wisely, and choose early so that you’re not left standing on the sidewalk outside a sold-out show, arguing with your friends about whose fault it is and who’s an asshole and who’d better be paying for the cab to whatever stupid bar you’re gonna wind up at. Don’t let that happen to you. Not tonight.

  • The Lemonheads was my first show. Evan Dando signed my “Shame About Ray” shirt that I bought with money pooled together between 3 love-struck 13 year olds. He was gorgeous, simply gorgeous… and sweaty.
