Tonight's edition of Sweet at Ella looks particularly, uh, sweet with Wyatt Cenac, Rudi Macaggi and more. It's also the biennial "Sweet Games" where, according to host Seth Herzog, "nonpros compete in comedic events & judged by a panel of celebrities. Always fun!"

Unless you're looking at this post from your phone, chances are you're not getting into tonight's Nicki Minaj make-up show at Roseland.

Charming New Zealander Lawrence Arabia is playing Mercury Lounge tonight and tickets are still available. You can stream his new album, The Sparrow, via a Spotify widget below.

"Once In a Lullaby" screens for free in a Staten Island ballpark tonight.

so easy to get into that nicki minaj show, it was weird.

if you showed up to roseland yesterday between noon and 3pm, they just handed you a wristband and you could leave (i guess not enough people lined up).

and the scalpers outside the venue were doing under $10 per ticket.

she's on her way out.

the drummer of jeff the brotherhood is autistic, it finally came out. thats why theyre so odd, but really good at music.

autistic kids love hipster stuff hahah

I think more people then just autistic kids like hipster stuff. The hipster scene is popular to many people. People love punk music. You don't have to be autistic to like this type of music. I know autistic kids that love classic or jazz music. Everyone is different. People are more picky about the music they like then the food they eat.
