Browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows. Here are some highlights...

Astro, Grand Resort, La MiniTK de Miedo @ Cameo Gallery
Are Astro this really Chile's answer to MGMT? Well not really, but they both do have a predilection for animal skins and catchy dance-rock. Quality local band Grand Resort open the show.

MK, XXYYXX, Ryan Hemsworth, Pete Swanson, Gobby, James K @ MoMA Ps1
This summer's Warm Up series (which can get very hot) continues with one of its strongest lineups today. It's got house veteran MK, party-startin' newcomer XXYYXX, cloud rap producer Ryan Hemsworth, noisemaker Pete Swanson (who replaced Bondax), Mykki Blanco collaborator Gobby, and James K.

Ryan Hemsworth, Crissy Murderbot, CJ Milli, That Work & more @ Tribeca Grand Hotel
After Warm Up, keep the party going with Ryan Hemsworth (and many other DJs) at Tribeca Grand Hotel all the way to 4 in the morning.

Pusha T, EPMD, Redman, Dizzy Wright & more @ Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival
As Redman says, "Tonight's Da Night". So head on down to the BHHF to catch the king of coke-slang Pusha T along with hip hop legends EPMD, Reggie Noble (aka Redman) and many others as part of the BHHF event. Promises to be a great time with classic hip hop tunes. $30 at the door.

Summer Thunder w/ Joe Bataan, Quitapenas, Joel Stones @ Union Pool (FREE)
NYC latin soul legend Joe Bataan recorded one of the first rap records to chart ("Rap-O, Clap-O," watch the video below), had disco hits as well and has dabbled in just about every genre imaginable. Today he headlines this afternoon's free Summer Thunder show at Union Pool. 3 PM.

So Percussion, Joshua Light Show @ Michael Schimmel Center For the Arts Theatre (FREE)
The River to River Festival continues today with Dan Deacon collaborators So Percussion and psychedelic visualists Joshua Light Show. Like all River to River shows, this one is free and open to the public.

Shellshag, White Night, Extra Feeler, Love Warz @ Silent Barn
Brooklyn DIY vets Shellshag, whose very good new album, Shellshag Forever, is out now via Don Giovanni, will play a sold-out show at Maxwell's with Ted Leo on July 21 after their DG labelmates Screaming Females play a sold-out early show with more labelmates, Nuclear Santa Claust. But you can catch them at a smaller, not-sold-out show at Silent Barn tonight, which, besides Maxwell's, is their only currently scheduled NYC-area date.

Bennio Qwerty, Mainland, Darlings @ Glasslands
If you like your indie rock on the loud side, head to Glasslands tonight. Headliners Bennio Qwerty put the power in trio with some seriously muscular riffs. Darlings remain one of Brooklyn's more underrated (and catchy) bands.

Philip Glass Ensemble, Kishi Bashi @ Prospect Park Bandshell (FREE)
The free Celebrate Brooklyn! shows in Prospect Park continue tonight with a diverse lineup of contemporary composer Philip Glass, whose ensemble will be performing a live original score to Dracula, and support from of Montreal collaborator Kishi Bashi.

A Great Big PIle of Leaves, Young Statues, Happy Body Slow Brain @ The Studio at Webster Hall
Brooklyn's A Great Big Pile of Leaves just released their new album, You're Always On My Mind, which should appeal to Minus the Bear fans (stream it), and they're celebrating it with a release show at The Studio at Webster Hall tonight.

The Filmshop's "Kill Your Darlings" w/ Wild Yaks, Cult Fever @ MHOW
For another film/music option, tonight at MHOW is a mix of shorts by local filmmakers and music from local bands.

Napolean, Spires, Jangula, Grand Resort @ Shea Stadium
Grand Resort and Spires seem to be in a contest for who can play the most local show. We've lost count as to who's winning, but we like them both.

The Cabin Sisters, Sky White Tiger, Forts @ Grand Victory
Shoshanna sings! When not busy starring on Girls and The Neighbors, respectively, Zosia and Clara Mamet make music as The Cabin Sisters using their "unique brand of folk via body percussion, banjo and harmonies."

Camp Bisco: Day 3 @ Indian Lookout Country Club
The mostly (but not only) jam/electronic festival wraps up today with sets from Passion Pit, Danny Brown, VHS or Beta, Party Supplies, Free Energy, and more.

Part Time

Quilt, Part Time, Happy Jawbone Family Band, Travis Bretzer @ Union Pool
Mexican Summer curated this great bill, which goes down at Union Pool tonight, consisting of Summer of Love-lovers Quilt, freak folks Happy Jawbone Family Band, pop nostalgists Part Time, and another pop guy, Travis Bretzer.

The Mantles, Juan Wauters (of The Beets), Pale Lights, Piano Movers @ Cake Shop
San Francisco's Mantles no doubt own a copy of essential garage comp Nuggets (and a couple Kinks albums), as evidenced on their terrific Slumberland debut, Long Enough to Leave. This is their second of two NYC shows on their tour with The Beets' Juan Wauters.

Hair Police, Chris Goudrea, White Suns @ Issue Project Room
If you missed the impeccably curated Hair Police show last night, make sure and catch the noise favorites at Pioneer Works tonight. Your ears will hate you and love you for it.

M.O.D., Malignancy, Dehumanized, Mother Brain @ Saint Vitus Bar
Billy Milano and M.O.D. will team with New York DM favorites Malignancy as part of a mixed-bill metal show at Vitus. Make sure and get their early to catch young contender Mother Brain rip shit up.

Cellular Chaos, Zulus, Yvette, Old Head @ Death By Audio
Weaser Walter's (XBXRX, Behold... The Arctopus) band Cellular Chaos headlines a bill at Death by Audio tonight, and there's solid local support coming from Zulus and Yvette. Pittsburgh's Old Head is on the bill too.

Xenia Rubinos, Helado Negro @ Mercury Lounge
A well-matched double feature of eclectic, latin-leaning pop headlined by the ebullient Xenia Rubinos.

Blonde Redhead @ The Surf Lodge (FREE)
The free shows at Montauk's Surf Lodge continue today with NYC indie rock/dream pop vets Blonde Redhead. You might not be making the trip to the Hamptons just to see a NYC band (or maybe you are), but if you're up there, there's no way you should miss this...

The Antlers @ Sole East Resort (FREE)
...Unless of course you're missing it because you've instead chosen to see the free Antlers show at Montauk's Sole East Resort. Then I guess that would be okay.

Chris Isaaak @ The Capitol Theatre
Though a moritorium should be declared on indie covers of "Wicked Game," Isaak's surfer take on Roy Orbison cool doesn't go out of style.

Preservation Hall Jazz Band @ McKittrick Hotel
Preservation Hall Jazz Band continue their week-long run at McKittrick Hotel tonight.

Monkey: Journey to the West @ David H. Koch Theater
Damon Albarn, Chen Shi-Zheng, and Jamie Hewlett's musical take on one of China's most famous tales is part opera part Cirque du Soleil.

Ugh. You actually highlighted and suggested the Cabin Sisters?!? Now we definitely won't trust anything on this new What's Happening list.

Give it up, BV. This is stupid. Give up your ego. Change back. I hardly ever even check your site now and looks like it's going to happen less and less.

I like this format better. More info. I do find it strange there is no mention of Julieta Venegas who played Summerstage today at a Latin American Music Conference free show and was fantastic. Montauk, bland indie rock capital. Who new?

Hey Astro you have an amazing talent. Everytime I hear you rap I just think why cant rap be like yours? Cause yours is not all about women and they body parts. Thanks for being a real man and rapping about what matters. I am addicted to your rapping skills. Keep it up!

Uhh me encanta esta musica! y pensar que cuando tenia diez años me encontre un longplay tirado sobre una avenida en perfecto estado y todo los dias me lo quedaba escuchando su musica, fue un dia muy cool que marco mi vida a esta clase de musica disco funk soul.
