Jeff the Brotherhood kick off three nights of NYC shows with a gig at Death By Audio. Coin Under Tongue, Sisters and Lame Drivers also play.

Aimee Mann caps her trio of shows at City Winery tonight.

"Wearing jeans and a tailored black blazer, she played a solid two-hour set, breezing through old hits (a folksy take on her '80s hit with 'Til Tuesday, "Voices Carry," was a highlight) and newer favorites, including some from her latest disc, the Grammy-nominated @#%&*! Smilers. It was a fantastic show, but I was secretly hoping she'd rock out a little more--and she eventually did, trading in her acoustic for an electric bass during the encore." [Elle]
The Grates start their Pianos residency.

Michael & Michael Have Issues, the new show from Michael Showalter and Michael Ian Black, premieres tonight on Comedy Central. The pair appear for a performance and release party at the Bell House.

Darcy James Argue's Secret Society, at LPR tonight, is a big band with a modern twist. See a video of the group below.

For being a psychedelic band, black moth sure comes up with some imagery that is pretty disturbing. Not sure what those guys are going for, but I it is good to know that they will never become a media darling of the indie world.
