Thundercat @ RBSSS Philly (more by Ryan Muir)

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

Thundercat, ASTR, Tondrae Kemp @ LPR
Thundercat is pretty close to a genius in terms of his bass playing, pulling from jazz, electronica, and hip hop and bringing it all together for a blend that no one else is really doing right now.

Justin Timberlake @ MSG
Justin Timberlake does a lot of things, some of them great, some of them less great, but one of those things is that he makes some of the most forward-thinking mainstream pop around, and he'll fill MSG with that tonight.

UPDATE: JT postponed til Friday.

Radkey, Netherlands, EULA, Shark? @ Death By Audio
This whole bill is pretty solid with the polished punk of Radkey, the synth-fueled heavy punk of Netherlands, the noise rock of EULA, and the catchy garage rock of Shark?.

Steve Earle @ City Winery
Having worked inside and outside the music industry, country survivor, protest singer and occasional actor Steve Earle plays his last of four City Winery shows tonight.

Cian Nugent, Bloom @ Union Pool
Cian Nugent taught himself to play guitar which accounts for his unusual style. Catch him tonight before his sold-out show with Angel Olson later in the week.

Lost in The Trees, All Tiny Creatures @ Bowery Ballroom
It's a solid double bill at Bowery Ballroom with the indie folk of Lost in the Trees and the experimental pop of All Tiny Creatures.

Dragons of Zynth, Denitia and Sene, Bowmont, Pajama People @ Highline Ballroom
If you're going to this show, do check out local trio Bowmont whose new EP, Hovering, is nicely textured synthpop.

Mount Sharp, Tape Deck Mountain, Great Western Plain, Snow What @ Silent Barn
There's some pretty solid local indie rock on this bill, including Mount Sharp, Tape Deck Mountain, and more.

James K, Gobby, Dutch E Germ, Shayne @ Cameo Gallery
UNO presents this dancey night at Cameo with live sets by James K and Mykki Blanco collaborator Gobby. Dutch E Germ and Shayne round out the bill, and there will be guest DJs too. Check out the Gobby triptych, "The Films: A Lucid Nightmare" below.

Nina Persson, White Prism @ Mercury Lounge
Though she best known for fun, upbeat songs like "Lovefool" with The Cardigans, Nina Persson shows her introspective side on her new solo album, for which this is a record release show. Sold out.

Marty Stuart and Connie Smith @ The Allen Room
Part of the American Songbook series, tonight features husband and wife team Marty Stuart and Connie Smith.

Glasvegas, The Ceremonies @ Mercury Lounge
Though the hype surrounding the band's debut has died in the years since, Scotland's Glasvegas are still making highly-charged anthemic guitar pop on their third LP, Later...When the TV Turns to Static. This is their first of two NYC shows and it's sold out.

Lesley Flanigan & People Get Ready @ Merkin Concert Hall
The Ecstatic Music Festival continues with this collaborative performance between electronic composer and vocalist Lesley Flanigan and occasionally high-concept indie band People Get Ready.

Baby Mollusk, Told Slant, Great Canopy, Whatever Dad @ 603 Bushwick Ave (upstairs)
Baby Mollusk recently added a bassist and drummer, turning her spare alt-folk into full-on indie rock attack. Tonight's the release show for their first full-band album, Baby Mollusk & the Big Babies. Whatever, Dad (aka Crying singer Elaiza Santos) isn't too far removed from Baby Mollusk's acoustic material.

Cult of Youth, Helm, Damien Dubrovnik @ Nothing Changes
It's the second NYC stop on London experimental musician Helm and Copenhagen electronic duo Damien Dubrovnik's (mem of Var, Lust for Youth) US tour, and like yesterday's (which had Pharmakon), there's a great likeminded NYC band on this one too: Cult of Youth.

Big Terrific @ Cameo
Max Silvestri hosts this long-running free comedy show. Tonight's show is big indeed, with Kara Klenk, Roger Hailes, Nick Turner, Nate Craig, and Ali Wong. Doors are at 8 PM.

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

Muto taste of Mexican estulo, think different and'm dying to see a live show these

603 Bushwick Ave is also known as "Silent Barn"

1:50 show is sold out!

^and that means what? That 600 idiots are behind the times and still listening to Kaiser Chiefs?

Posted by Anonymous | February 19, 2014 7:58 AM

^no idiot it means it is worth a mention on the blog

I'm with you 7:58. I only listen to things once, the day they come out, and then I never listen to them again because after that they're not with the times. I don't go to shows, either, unless I know all the material will be new and previously unheard by anyone. I hate time, especially its passing.

Yeah, and how about Helm and Damian Dubrovnik at Nothing Changes. Jeez. But at least you got Justin Timberlake in there.

"^no idiot it means it is worth a mention on the blog"

No idiot, it is not worth the mention and that is why it is not being mentioned. Dipshit.

@9:30, oh please go fuck yourself.

Kaiser Chiefs sucked then and they suck now.

Ha ha 9:30 that was funny! 9:46 no one is debating the music of Kaiser Cheifs. Only that it is a sold out show at a popular NYC venue. So you go fuck yourself

9:30: The hipster/scarf ethos described perfectly.

Posted by Anonymous | February 19, 2014 9:50 AM

^Way to big up yourself pretending you are someone else.

Lame attempt.

@9:50, me go fuck myself? Loser, the show was not mentioned and still not mentioned so ultimately you can go suck a dick.

"Yeah, and how about Helm and Damian Dubrovnik at Nothing Changes."

That one slipped by us, but we did of course mean to include it. It's added now, thanks for the heads up!

10:09 must be a joy to be around.

10:09 ok I will give my husband a BJ before I go out tonight. :)

Krill! Krill! Krill forever! Krill! Krill! Forever and ever! And ever! And ever! And ever!

Black Joe Lewis at Irving Plaza. Gonna smoke all these other fools.

9:30 knocked this one out of the park. The rest of you season hopefuls can pretty much go home.

Also, 10:28 gets a nod for making a valid and ahem, timely, point.

Don't sprain you arm (from slapping yourself on the back too much)

Posted by Anonymous | February 19, 2014 1:21 PM

I love all of you. Hurt by the cold.

Posted by Anonymous | February 19, 2014 5:01 PM

Really? So BV's official editorial position is that Justin Timberlake is more relevant than the Kaiser Chiefs? On an indie rock blog?

The Kaiser Chiefs are hardly the epitome of artistic integrity, but that's still absolutely ridiculous.

1:21, don't sprain your fingers (from typing too many letters)
