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

The Men, Ukiah Drag @ Bowery Ballroom
The Men's prolific album-a-year schedule and ever-changing sound that has shifted from dark sludge punk to Replacements-y indie rock to Crazy Horse style jams leaves them with a ton of variety to throw into their raucous sets. If you're going, don't miss the western-tinged psych punks The Ukiah Drag, who open.

The Lawrence Arms, The Copyrights, Elway @ Gramercy Theatre
The Lawrence ended an 8-year gap between albums with this year's Metropole, and for a band who's been away from releasing music for so long, it's surprisingly one of their best records.

CTZNSHP, Adult Dude, Longarms @ Spike Hill
Local rockers Adult Dude make a great mix of Dinosaur Jr-style rock and Superchunk-style punk, and are worth showing up to this one for.

Joan As Police Woman @ Union Pool
Joan as Policewoman's new album, The Classic, finds her in classic (and classy) R&B mode with some of her most ebullient songs yet. Tonight's show is sold out but you can catch her at Rough Trade in May too.

Rush Midnight, Seoul, Sea Oleena, Daniel Klag @ Cake Shop
Montreal band Seoul make airy, crystaline pop that's funky and soulful in an '80s kind of way. This is their second of two NYC shows this week with fellow MTL band Sea Oleena.

Limited, Life Size Maps, Limited, Beiju, Lazyeyes, The Silver Palms @ Pianos
Tonight's the first of Life Size Maps' March Residency at Pianos. They've curated a good lineup to kick things off, with Lazyeyes and Limited (Alex from Big Troubles' synthpop solo project).

Eugene Mirman, Sarah Vowell, Ken Burns, Kurt Anderson, John Oliver, Questlove, Fred Armisen, Masha Gessen, Robyn Hitchcock @ Town Hall
New York nonprofit 826NYC is celebrating 10 years of providing students ages 6 - 18 with free literacy and writing programs with this event osted by Eugene Mirman and Sarah Vowell which pairs distinguished artists in conversation.

Snow Tha Product, Caskey, Chris Miles @ Santos Party House
Snow Tha Product has some pretty fun jams like "Cookie Cutter Bitches" and we have a pretty good feeling the crowd at Santos is gonna turn up to those jams tonight.

Scott Ian @ BB King's
As guitarist for thrash vets Anthrax, Scott Ian has amassed a lot of stories. Hear some of the more entertaining ones tonight as part of his spoken word tour.

Ghost Beach, Fascinator, Chrome Sparks @ Baby's All Right
Tonight's show is a release party for Ghost Beach's new album, Blonde. It's free with RSVP.

Big Terrific @ Cameo
Max Silvestri hosts the free weekly comedy show in the back of Williamsburg's Lovin' Cup. Tonight's talent includes Claudia Cogan, Joe Zimmerman, Rob Cantrell, and Sean Donnelly.

'Lost Highway' @ Nitehawk Cinema
David Lynch's classic 1997 film kicks off Nighthawk's series on composer Angelo Badalamenti. The screening will be preceeded by a set from Silent Draper Runners-related band A Place Both Wonderful and Strange.

Good night to stay in and beat off.

the men haven't been very prolific as of late though - all of these songs were recorded over a year ago at this point - they just held on to the release


they should have gone all Oh Sees and released two records last year - maybe it'd have sounded less stale by now.
