Mount Kimbie at Bowery Ballroom in May (more by David Andrako)
Browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows. Here are some highlights...
CGBG: The Movie premiere @ Landmark Sunshine Theater
The legendary NYC punk club gets its biopic, with the great Alan Rickman as late owner Hilly Kristal. (His old Harry Potter cohort Rupert Grint plays Cheetah Chrome.) Tonight's the red carpet premiere and the kickoff for the 2013 CBGB Festival. Be glad this wasn't filmed in smell-o-vision.
Olafur Arnalds, Lisa Alma @ Le Poisson Rouge
The Icelandic composer brings a classical view to pop, or is it the other way around? One thing's for sure: tonight's show is sold out.
Wild Belle, Saint Rich @ Bowery Ballroom
Chicago band Wild Belle bring an island flavor to their breezy dancepop, while Delicate Steve offshoot Saint Rich owe more than a little to Thin Lizzy. Sold out.
Alexandra Stewart, Alexander von Mehren, Hayley Coupon @ Glasslands
Two similarly named musicians with a knack for orchestral pop from different sides of the Atlantic -- Brooklyn's Alexandra Stewart and Norway's Alexander von Mehren -- team up for this show at Glasslands tonight. It's the first of two NYC shows this week for Alexander von Mehren, who also plays Mercury Lounge tomorrow.
London Grammar, Jaymes Young @ Gramercy Theatre
One of the many artists who contributed to this year's great Disclosure album, London Grammar recently released their debut LP on Columbia, and they likely have their own great career ahead of them.
Mount Kimbie, Jonwayne, D33J @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
UK duo Mount Kimbie have two excellent, very different sounding electronic albums under their belts, but they're not just a laptop project. They put on a great live show too.
The Weeknd, Banks, Anna Lunoe @ Radio City Music Hall
Canadian R&B singer The Weeknd followed his trilogy of mixtapes with his first official studio album, Kiss Land, this year and he's supporting it on a big tour that brings him to NYC for two nights at Radio City. This is night 2.
Anna Lunoe (DJ Set), Headband & Holligan @ Le Poisson Rouge
Afterwards, Weeknd opener Anna Lunoe heads to LPR to DJ a late-night party.
Peanut Butter Wolf, Prince Paul @ 285 Kent
It's Peanut Butter Wolf's birthday party and the DJ/Stones Throw prez is celebrating at 285 Kent tonight. Also on the bill is another long-running hip hop DJ (and De La Soul collaborator), Prince Paul.
Watain, In Solitude, Tribulation @ Irving Plaza
Swedish black metal shredders Watain are touring behind their newest LP, The Wild Hunt, and tonight they bring their run with In Solitude and Tribulation to NYC's Irving Plaza.
