You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...

The Black Angels, Roky Erickson, The Denzels @ MHOW
Two different generations of Austin psych rock on one bill together, for what is sure to be one trippy show. This is a Converse Rubber Tracks show which meant tickets were free, but are all claimed now.

Pharmakon, Helm, Damien Dubrovnik, Three Legged Race @ Baby's All Right
This is one of the two stops on London experimental musician Helm and Copenhagen electronic duo Damien Dubrovnik's (mem of Var, Lust for Youth) US tour, which also hits Nothing Changes tomorrow. But this one's especially exciting because NYC noise artist Pharmakon headlines the show.

Vic Mensa, Nitty Scott MC, MC Rugz D Bewler, KB Yung Hustle @ SOB's
Mensa, Nitty Scott MC, MC Rugz D Bewler, KB Yung Hustle @ SOB's
Vic Mensa came up around the same time as fellow Chicago rapper Chance the Rapper (who he also collaborates with), and if you dig Chance's style you'll most likely be into Vic too. His last NYC gig was opening for Disclosure at Terminal 5, but tonight you can see him headline his own show in a much smaller room. Solid local rapper Nitty Scott MC opens.

Casket Girls, The Stargazer Lilies @ Mercury Lounge
The "Graveface Roadshow" rolls onto its second NYC show, featuring Black Moth Super Rainbow main man Ryan Graveface's other band, Casket Girls. Fronted by Elsa and Phaedra Greene, the band's sound isn't to dissimilar to BMSR.

Robert Ellis, Ian O'Neill @ Mercury Lounge
Houston-based country singer-songwriter Robert Ellis has a warm, world-weary voice that belies his young age. Tonight's show is with Deer Tick's Ian O'Neill.

Kins, Grand Resort, Libel @ Knitting Factory
While very much a band, Australia/UK act Kins seem to draw inspiration from downtempo electronics for a expansive, atmospheric sound without ever dipping into anthemic "whoa oh" territory. Their shows later this week with Courtney Barnett are sold out, but you can still get tickets to tonight's headlining gig.

For all of tonight's shows, and tomorrow's, check out our NYC concert calendar.

For laughs, check out the NYC Comedy calendar too.

On Pharmakon's CD, she does a cover of Throbbing Gristle's Discipline and didn't give them any credit.

i don't think ryan graveface is black moth's "main man." more of a live band hired hand. which is why casket girls doesn't really sound anything like bmsr.
