Browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows. Here are some highlights...
'Inside Llewyn Davis' concert @ Town Hall
The new Coen Brothers movie, Inside Llewyn Davis, which takes place in NYC's '60s folk music scene, screens at this year's NY Film Festival, and today there's a celebration happening at Town Hall. The film's music will be performed by a number of huge guests, including Jack White, Patti Smith , Colin Meloy, Conor Oberst, Joan Baez, Marcus Mumford, Gillian Welch & David Rawlings, Punch Brothers, Avett Brothers, and more.
Massive Attack V Adam Curtis @ Park Avenue Armory
Trip hop pioneers Massive Attack have collaborated with filmmaker Adam Curtis for this thought-provoking sensory overload. Reggae legend Horace Andy and Cocteau Twins vocalist Liz Fraser add to the experience. Just don't expect a traditional concert.
Darwin Deez, Caged Animals, Celestial Shore @ Knitting Factory
This is the second time Darwin Deez and Caged Animals have toured together this year, and this is the final stop for this round of dates. Celestial Shore open.
Guitar Wolf, The Coathangers, Coward @ Santos Party House
Over from Japan for Goner Fest, zombie-fighting garage rocker Guitar Wolf pulls into town tonight with tourmates The Coathangers. It doesn't get much more rock n' roll than this.
The Dodos, Dustin Wong @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
With their fifth album out this summer, The Dodos are relative indie vets at this point, having honed their anthemic, rhythmically-charged sound into well-oiled -- and still enjoyable -- machine. Loop pedal master Dustin Wong opens the show and tickets are still available.
Dope Body, Guardian Alien, PC Worship @ Glasslands
Baltimore noise rockers Dope Body were already in NYC twice this month, having opened for Scout Niblett a couple weeks ago and for Fucked Up last night, and tonight they headline a show here at Glasslands. Opening are two local noisemakers, Guardian Alien (aka former Liturgy drummer Greg Fox) and PC Worship.
Electric Six, My Jerusalem, Les Sans Culottes @ Bowery Ballroom
Detroit's Electric Six have been making tongue-in-cheek, id-overload, disco party rock for over a decade. They'll release their ninth album, Mustang, on October 8.
Ben UFO, Pearson Sound, Pangaea @ Output
It's a Hessle Audio label night at Output with the same lineup that played the venue back in April. If you haven't already, check out Ben UFO's Fabriclive.67 mix.
John Zorn, Mike Patton, John Medeski, Trevor Dunn & more @ Le Poisson Rouge
Avant-sax great John Zorn continues his run of Zorn@60 concerts with two shows (6:30 and 10 PM) tonight with some pretty exciting guests, including Mike Patton (Faith No More, Mr. Bungle, Tomahawk). And Marc Ribot will be at the early show.
Lea Bertucci, C. Spencer Yeh, Okkyung Lee, I'd M Theft Able, Thomas Dexter @ Silent Barn
It's a night of experimental music at Silent Barn, including Lea Bertucci (for whom the show is a record release), violinist C. Spencer Yeh, and more.
Chick Corea @ Blue Note
Jazz fusion pianist Chick Corea, known for collaborations with Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock, and others, wraps up his 6-night run at The Blue Note tonight.
Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival @ The Bell House
This is the last night of the Eugene Mirman Comedy Fest and is a party for the season premiere of terrific FOX animated comedy Bob's Burgers, which Mirman is on. Tonight will also feature appearances by fellow cast members Jon Benjamin, Kristen Schaal and a host of surprise guests.
Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival @ Union Hall
Meanwhile over at Union Hall, the EMCF is hosting Creaghead & Company, which they playfully note, "Thoughtfully Included Since It Was Scheduled Here Anyway." Tonight's show is with Myq Kaplan, Ken Reid, Mike Drucker, James Adomian, and Aparna Nancherla.
Hannibal Buress @ Knitting Factory
Big league comedy talent (Chris Rock, Louis CK, etc) show up regularly (and unannounced) for Hannibal's very popular free comedy show at Knitting Factory's front bar. Get there early.
