The forecast is affecting some (or all...) of tonight's free outdoor shows...

Due to a threat of inclement weather, tonight's Quimbombo show has been moved to Stuyvesant High School at 345 Chambers St. Start time is still 7pm. Space is limited, so the first come, first served system will be in effect.
Also, tonight's film at the McCarren Park Summerscreen, Wild at Heart, has been rescheduled for August 19th. (Next week's screening of Fame will feature sets by Bottle Up & Go and The Nouvellas.)

Steely Dan is inside, but also cancelled.

Other outdoor gratis shows scheduled for tonight include Wayne Wonder
in Brooklyn's Brower Park and Raul Malo in Madison Square Park

Mark Eitzel plays his American Music Club songs at The Bell House tonight. Steely Dan will perform its 1980 album Gaucho at Beacon Theatre.

The Grates play the final show of their Pianos residency with The Whims, Buenos Dias and Charlotte Sometimes.

Catch members of the Black Lips in the Gaye Blades at Bruar Falls tonight with Bosco Delrey and Georgiana Starlington.

The Drums and Ninjasonik open for Ebony Bones tonight at Bowery Ballroom.

Scarlett Johansson collaborator Pete Yorn plays with Zee Avi at Webster Hall tonight.

Three-string guitarist Seasick Steve warms up for his All Points West set with a show tonight at the Mercury Lounge with J. Roddy Walson & the Business and Spirit Family Reunion.

92YTribeca hosts radio DJ Peter Roseberg in conversation with Raekwon as "jazz hip-hop fusion band" The Cypher perform from the latter's catalog.

The new Dodos album, which got leaked earlier this month, is out now and just $3.00. It's also streaming.

"Here to Fall," the first in a series of five clips from the upcoming Yo La Tengo album, Popular Songs, is posted below.

fyi, the Lightspeed thing is some sort of side project rock opera thing called Blood Orange... he wrote the whole thing last week, apparently.
