Nine Inch Nails closed out Panorama Fest with a powerful set on Sunday night, but the legendary group isn’t cutting town just yet. Tonight, Trent Reznor and company are playing a surprise show at Webster Hall with Tobacco as an opener. The show kicks off at 8pm, and tickets are currently on pre-sale for $75.
Taking Back Sunday are on tour now, and the Long Island band just played two LI shows and two in NYC. They did a surprise 300-capacity show at the Long Beach Inn on July 12, Patchogue’s Great South Bay Music Festival the next day, and Webster Hall shows on 7/14 & 7/15. Both Webster Hall shows had nearly identical setlists, both including acoustic, Dylanesque covers of Green Day‘s “She.” Unlike on their tour last fall, where they played their new album Tidal Wave in full, the band mixed things up pretty well this time around, offering a career-spanning set with such faves as “Timberwolves at New Jersey,” “You Know How I Do,” “You’re So Last Summer,” “A Decade Under the Influence,” “Set Phasers to Stun,” “Liar,” “What’s It Feel Like to Be A Ghost?,” and of course, “MakeDamnSure” and “Cute without the E.”
The Webster Hall shows had direct support from Every Time I Die, who are joining them for most remaining dates on this tour. Modern Chemistry are on the current leg too. Pictures of the 7/14 show are in the gallery above. Setlist and a video of the Green Day cover below.

A small show at the Studio at Webster Hall on Monday, July 17, features a great lineup of rap music that nods to aesthetics from everywhere but New York. OMB Peezy, from Mobile, Ala., but living in Sacramento now, is tough but melodic, with a youthfully urgent voice and production that’s indebted to Louisiana and California. He’s joined by SOB x RBE, from Vallejo, Calif., which just released a lustrous self-titled mixtape thick with Bay Area templates and remakes of classic songs, and G Perico, from South Central Los Angeles, who makes gloriously slippery music reminiscent of that city’s golden age of gangster rap.

Governors Ball, the outdoor music fest that’ll bring Lorde, Chance the Rapper and a slew of other acts to NYC’s Randalls Island, will be here on June 2–4. Are you ready? In addition to the open-air fiesta, GovBall has a full lineup of associated shows billed for venues around NYC. Ostensibly, these “after dark” gigs serve as a post-festival nightcap (though in our experience, no after-party is as good as your own bed). Still, the chance to see the Avalanches play a dreamy set inside Brooklyn Bowl or to party with Charli XCX (who we recently interviewed) at intimate Williamsburg club Schimanski is nothing to scoff at. And good news for those hoping to stretch out their GovBall experience for a few extra days: a bunch of the gigs happen before the festival (like Charles Bradley and Tove Lo, both on Thursday, June 1) and after it (like Franz Ferdinand and Skepta the following week), giving you plenty of time to see their GovBall sets, make it to these shows and still get some shut-eye.
The full lineup of GovBall After Dark is below: Tickets for those shows go on sale Thursday, April 27 at noon (with a presale for Citi Cardmembers happening now).

Halsey certainly isn’t forgetting where she came from.
On Sunday night (June 4), the songstress, who released her new album Hopeless Fountain Kingdom on June 2, performed a very intimate Sirius XM show at New York City’s Studio at Webster Hall. In line with the special setting, she left her entire heart on the stage.
The 22-year-old’s fans — many of whom had been camping outside all day — eagerly awaited Halsey’s arrival, singing along to the music that was playing in the venue, from Chance the Rapper’s “No Problem” to Kanye West’s “Famous.” At about 8:30 p.m., Halsey, rocking a blue wig, white top and jean shorts, opened the show with “Eyes Closed” as fans rushed to the front of the very small stage to get as close as they could.
She played songs old and new, from “Colors” and “Gasoline” to new jams off Hopeless Fountain Kingdom, include a very heartfelt performance of “Lie” and “Strangers,” her collaboration with Fifth Harmony’s Lauren Jauregui. Even though Halsey’s album was released only two days prior, the room sounded like a choir as fans sang along to every word of all 18 songs in the set, which is no surprise considering just how dedicated Halsey’s fan base is.
After performing Hopeless Fountain Kingdom cut “100 Letters,” she explained that the track was inspired after she dug back into Romeo & Juliet. “Shakespeare literally tells you the end of the story before he even begins it. Something about that is so special, it tells you the ending but you still care to know what happens. So I wrote this song where I tell you ‘I don’t let him touch me anymore,’ but this is a song about when I used to let him touch me.”
There were quite a few candid moments in the show, like when Halsey caught a rose that a fan threw to her on stage. “It’s the only time I’ve ever caught anything that’s been thrown at me in my whole life,” she admitted. “That’s why I’m a musician and not a professional soccer player. You don’t even catch stuff in soccer, that shows you how good at sports I am.”
In true Halsey fashion, she took a few moments throughout the show to talk to fans and let them know how much she cares about them, even throwing water bottles into the crowd to encourage people to stay hydrated. The Studio at Webster Hall is an especially sentimental venue to Halsey, as she played the room just two years ago four months before Badlands had even been released. Because of the venue’s significance, she insisted that she “fought very, very, very hard” to play there following her sophomore album’s release. “I was not gonna let this show not happen!”
After jumping around on stage for about an hour and a half (even hopping into the crowd at one point), she ended the show with a reminder that she’s still the same Halsey she’s always been — something that was highly evident from her heartfelt performance. “I will not forget where I came from, and this is where I came from. I f–king love you guys, goodnight.”
Seth Rogen and Lauren Miller Rogen’s Annual Variety Show raises awareness and critical funds for Alzheimer’s care and support
NEW YORK, April 24, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Seth Rogen and Lauren Miller Rogen’s Hilarity For Charity® (HFC), a movement founded as a resource for the millennial generation with a focus on supporting Alzheimer’s care and support, today announced that Amy Schumer, Jim Gaffigan and Colin Jost will bring their comedic talents to the Third Annual HFC NYC Variety Show on Thursday, June 8, 2017 at Webster Hall.
“I’m pumped we’ve got this level of talent joining us for the night, and even more pumped for our attendees to pour their money in to the hands of Hilarity for Charity,” said Rogen. Additional performances will be announced in the near future.
Preceding the two-day convention were Clutter’s 7thAnnual Designer Toy Awards held at Webster Hall and hosted by documentarian, Morgan Spurlock.
As part of ‘The Great Circle 2017′ tour, which marks the band’s first series of world tour dates in 15 years, Australian alternative rock vets Midnight Oil invaded New York City this past weekend for back-to-back sold-out concerts at the famous Webster Hall in the East Village of Manhattan.
We attended the May 14th showing at Webster Hall, where the Aussie rock greats discharged a hefty 22 track, two-encore setlist, consisting of hits from their albums Diesel and Dust, Place Without a Postcard, Blue Sky Mining, 0, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, Earth and Sun and Moon, Red Sails in the Sunset and their latest full-length offering Capricornia. A packed house enjoyed live renditions of classic tracks like “Power and the Passion,” “The Dead Heart,” “Beds Are Burning,” and “Forgotten Years,” along with a cover of John Lennon‘s “Instant Karma!” and so much more.
Check out more exclusive photos from the NY show and the band’s setlist here.
Pixies are currently in NYC and will wrap up their three-show, sold-out run with Cymbals Eat Guitars tonight (5/26) at Brooklyn Steel. They played Brooklyn Steel on Thursday night (5/25) too, and began their run with a sold-out show at Webster Hall on Wednesday (5/24). Setlists for both shows, which mixed it up quite a bit, are below and pictures from Webster Hall are in the gallery above. While it may not seem like Pixies to many without Kim Deal, for those who just wanted a show jam-packed full of favorites, Pixies delivered. Cymbals Eat Guitars, who surely own a few Pixies albums, made for a fitting opener.
Pixies will be back in the NYC area later this year.
