Tonight! Cam’ron, Marc Ribot, and Explosions in the Sky


In the event you’re hoping for a love connection at Harlem megastar Cam’ron’s show tonight, know that the guy’s idea of foreplay is “Get in the car, and don’t touch nothin’/Either we lovin’ or I’ll see you tomorrow.” He’s at B.B. King’s.

Marc Ribot is best known for the shambling licks he contributed to Tom Waits’ masterwork Rain Dogs, but the guitarist’s oddity — and ability — runs deeper than his cooperative work might indicate. He’ll do an avant-garde solo set at the Stone.

Epic post-rockers Explosions in the Sky headline a not-free Central Park SummerStage gig tonight, but expect less monotonous sets from the two wonderful bands performing earlier in the evening: the Constantines and the Castanets

In cased you still haven’t heard Wilco (the Album) in its entirety, head to the Bell House’s unofficial release party and take a shot every time someone from Wilco sings “Wilco.”
