Whether you just saw King Diamond’s New York performance last week or getting ready to see Tool next week (19th) at Barclays Center, there are shows you don’t want to miss beforehand. We compiled a list of five shows that are happening in New York this week – 11/11/2019.
05) Mortician 11/16 @ Saint Vitus
Brutal death metallers Mortician are celebrating their overall 30th anniversary. Not only has the group been commemorating their overall career by reissuing albums including House by the Cemetery, they will also perform at Brooklyn’s Saint Vitus this Saturday (16th).
04) Bayside 11/13 @ The Music Hall of Williamsburg
New York punk rockers Bayside have been celebrating their latest effort, Interrobang, as they kicked off their extensive U.S tour last week. On this particular trek, the group will be recognizing the local music scene by letting their fans select who should open each night. This Wednesday (13th), the band will be performing at the Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn, NY. To find out more about the album and their tour, check out our interview with vocalist/guitarist Anthony Raneri here.
03) Iron Kingdom 11/13 @ Blackthorn 51
02) Chelsea Grin 11/14 @ Gramercy Theatre
Chelsea Grin are currently on tour with The Acacia Strain, Spite, Traitors, and Left Behind. This is a tour you do not want to miss, and this Thursday (14th), you have a chance to check out the insanity at the Gramercy Theatre. We recently spoke to Spite’s Darius Tehrani as he had the following to say about this particular run:
“We are going on tour with Chelsea Grin, The Acacia Strain, Traitors, and Left Behind. It’s a tour that I think people have wanted us to do for a long time and all these different bands to play together. It’s like who you want to see Traitors with you? You want to see Spite. I feel like these names always get recycled within each other’s circles. I think that it’s like a super chorus. It’s a definitely a power tour, and I think people have wanted this for a while. So I’m excited to see how these shows pop off, because like every band on this lineup is uniquely heavy and just devastating. I’m pumped.”
01) The Hu 11/17 @ Bowery Ballroom
This Sunday (17th), The Hu will be bringing their debut album The Gereg to the Bowery Ballroom. While the show looks like it’s already sold out, you may still have a chance outside the venue on the day of the show.
