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

Pixies, Reignwolf @ Bowery Ballroom
Pixies might have lost Kim Deal as a member (they have Kim Shattuck of The Muffs in her place) and you might not be huge on their new EP, but this is still three of the four original members of one of the most classic indie rock bands of our time, playing relatively intimate venues. Tonight they're at Bowery Ballroom for their second of four NYC shows this week.

White Fence, Jonathan Rado, Dead Stars @ Glasslands
Tim Presley pretty much IS White Fence on their albums, but those lo-fi recordings really fatten up with the live band who always put on a good show. Tonight also features Foxygen's Jonathan Rado who just released a solo album on Woodsist, and '90s-indie-sounding Dead Stars. This is a free Converse Rubber Tracks show, but all tickets have been claimed.

Washed Out, Haerts @ Terminal 5
Though the chillwave craze didn't stay for long, some of those artists, like Washed Out, and have continued to progress and move up in the world. Tonight they headline their largest NYC show yet.

Willie Nelson @ The Capitol Theatre
It's always a treat when country music legend/activist Willie Nelson comes to town, and this week he's in the NYC-area for two shows at Port Chester's Capitol Theatre.

Deerhunter, Crystal Stilts @ Webster Hall
The ever-evolving Deerhunter have toyed with noise rock, shoegaze, dream pop and most other indie rock subgenres, but on their newest LP, Monomania, they dial the time machine back even further for analog-recorded glammy garage rock. They continue their NYC run with a sold-out show at Webster Hall tonight, and opening are Brooklyn's Crystal Stilts.

Raven, Black Anvil, Fantom Warrior @ Saint Vitus
NWOBHM/thrash veterans Raven are nearing the 40 year mark and are celebrating with a new DVD and North American tour. That tour hits NYC tonight at Brooklyn metal bar Saint Vitus with local black metal crew Black Anvil and Fantom.

Invisible Days, Dead Tenants @ Cake Shop
If you pine for the early '90s sound of shoegazers like Ride, Lilys and Pale Saints, you might just wanna check out Brooklyn band Invisible Days who do that sort of stuff well.

The Universal Thump, Freedy Johnston, Sonja Van Hamel @ Littlefield
Orchestral pop band The Universal Thump headline this show, but don't miss Hoboken's Freedy Johnston, one of the more underrated singer-songwriters of the last 25 years.

The Hairs, Franny & Zooey, Littlefoot, Northern Spies @ The Flat
It's a lovely night of indiepop, headlined by snarky combo The Hairs. If you're looking for a cheap night out, this show's only three bucks.

Bilal @ Highline Ballroom
The New School is doing its Jazz Alumni Night at Highline Ballroom tonight, and it's especially interesting because neo-soul singer Bilal will be headlining the show.

Big Terrific @ Cameo Gallery
Max Silvestri hosts the free weekly comedy show in the back of Williamsburg's Lovin' Cup. Tonight's line-up features Brent Sullivan, Nate Fridson, and Sean Patton.

Icona Pop, k.Flay, Sirah @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Do you still love it?

Deerhunter went on at 10 last night and ended at midnight.
Good setlist, good performance, but the sound was awful.

Deerhunter's set list was great. Sound was terrible. And someone (Lockett?) kept hitting wrong notes.

I hate to be a knitpicker but the gaps of silence before each song really throw it off

I was there that night and Shara was my favourite act of the night, goosebumps. Oh and Mr Langol you're a gentleman.
