Five concerts worth braving the Nor'easter for tonight

Written by

Gonna be honest here: I have no idea what makes a Nor'easter different than your average, run-of-the-mill rain storm. But if you've made the unfortunate move of stepping outside your front door today, you know that the wind-and-water maelstrom pummeling the city is nothing short of cataclysmic. Assuming that you immediately turned around, called in sick and spent the day streaming movies on Netflix, what are you going to do after Wolf of Wall Street finishes?

Well, one option is to get out of the house and head to one of these concerts. There's a surplus of worthy entertainment, mother nature be damned. Just make sure to keep dry: take an Uber (or a cab, or a Lyft, or just use an umbrella).

French Montana + Jeremih at Best Buy Theater
French Montana—the second-most-famous Kardashian-affiliated rapper (but still a pretty good one at that)—unveils a new album, Mac & Cheese. Late-night crooner Jeremih, of "Birthday Sex" fame, joins.

Angel Olsen at Bowery Ballroom
The intense, young folk singer, supporting this year's rough-and-tumble gem Burn Your Fire for No Witness (one of our best albums of 2014), ends her three-show NYC run tonight.

Ben Watt at Le Poisson Rouge
Everything but the Girl songwriter plays behind a strong new album Hendra, his first solo record since 1983.

James Blood Ulmer and Marc Ribot at City Winery
Two unclassifiable guitar giants—whose collective wheelhouse encompasses free jazz, blues and much, much more—meet up for a downtown summit.

Common + Jay Electronica at Irving Plaza
Chicago rap vet Common, new album in tow, pairs with ROC Nation signee Jay Electronica, who's kept us waiting near four years for a debut album (maybe tonight we get a taste?).
