Cat Power at Station to Station in 2013 (more by Lukas Hodge)
Cat Power

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

Cat Power @ Music Hall of Williamsburg (early and late)
The solo shows Chan Marshall has been doing bring her back to the early days of Cat Power when it was just Chan on stage by herself (she does still include new stuff in the setlists though). Tonight she returns to NYC to do the solo thing here again with two shows (6 PM & 9:30 PM) at MHOW.

Iggy Pop, New Order, Patti Smith, Phillip Glass @ Carnegie Hall
It's the annual Tibet House benefit with a typically amazing line-up.

Gary Higgins @ Baby's All Right
Back in 1973, Gary Higgins released the psychedelic folk masterpiece, Red Hash, a record totally ahead of its time that gained the recognition it deserves years later. He remains active, and tonight he performs that record in full at Baby's All Right.

Liam Finn, Shorts @ Union Pool
On his forthcoming album, The Nihilist, Finn played 67 instruments, which actually sounds about right. Anyone who's seen his live shows knows the dude can play anything. And often does! This is the second of his March "Murmuration" residencies.

Sleepers Work, Joel Ford, SHRAF @ Bossa Nova Civic Club
Sleepers Work is the alias of Brooklyn-based multi-instrumentalist William Flynn who has toured with St. Vincent, and others. No Turn Before The Shoreline is the first full length release from Sleepers Work which shows off his moody, ambient R&B.  Tonight's the record release party for the album. Free.

Xenia Rubinos @ The Mercury Lounge
The eccentric Xenia Rubinos brings her one-of-a-kind show to Mercury Lounge tonight.

Pete Donnelly of The Figgs, Brett Newski, Miles Wick @ Cake Shop
Steeped in the tradition of The Replacements, Cheap Trick and Elvis Costello, The Figgs have been creating great power pop for two decades now, with no signs of stopping any time soon. Tonight frontman Pete Donnelly plays solo.

Sin Fang @ Chez Andre at The Standard Hotel
He's dropped the "Bous" from his moniker but Seabear frontman Sindri Már Sigfússon continues to make dreamy electronics-heavy folk, most recently on 2013's Flowers. This is a free show but you need to RSVP to

The Allman Brothers Band @ Beacon Theatre
Pioneers of jam bands, and progenitors of blues and southern rock, The Allman Brothers continue their multi-night run at Beacon Theatre tonight.

Dropkick Murphys, Lucero, Skinny Lister @ The Paramount
It wouldn't be St. Patrick's Day week without shows from Dropkick Murphys, and this year they wrap up their two-night stand in the NYC-area with tonight's Long Island show. If you're going, be sure to catch their country punk tourmates Lucero too.

Lorde, Lo-Fang @ Roseland Ballroom
The popular Lorde is on night two of her sold-out three-night run at the soon-to-close Roseland Ballroom with support from the 4AD-signed Lo-Fang.

Tonight's Roosevelt show at Glasslands has been cancelled.

If iggy or new order are dadrock, so who invented your music?

Posted by ME | March 11, 2014 11:28 AM

Hopefully our own Rockin Dadddy will be at the Iggy/New Oder show, and he can report back to with a dad scene report.

Rockin Daddy likes music that he thinks the kids like. While New Order and Iggy may be great, they are not Arctic Monkeys great.

^no way brah, plz, Rockin Daddy is New Order fanboy #1. He probably saw them in '78.

Posted by Anonymous | March 11, 2014 12:27 PM

12:27 - Do you mean Joy Division? New Order didn't exist in 1978 genius.

2:37 is writing the definitive biography on Rockin Daddy, so I'd trust his retelling of the events. What chapter are you up to now, 2:37?

Posted by Anonymous | March 11, 2014 5:17 PM

^Chapter 6. The 'Rockin Bachelor' years.
