Priests at MHOW in 2013 (more by Chris La Putt)
Priests

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

Priests, Downtown Boys, 1/2 of Swearin', Olga Bell @ MoMA PS1
DC punks Priests have a new album coming out on Don Giovanni (they just released the killer lead single), and many upcoming tour dates, three of which are in NYC. Today's show is a little different than the other two though. It's an afternoon show (3 PM start) "of discussion and music surrounding feminist punk rock with artists" as part of MoMA PS1's Sunday Sessions, and also includes fellow punk band Downtown Boys, 1/2 of Swearin' (Allison Crutchfield and Kyle Gilbride) and Dirty Projector Olga Bell. The artists will be in conversation with Pitchfork's Jenn Pelly.

King Parrot, Vattnet Viskar, Vaporizer, Highness @ Saint Vitus
Australian thrashers King Parrot and Northeast US black metallers Vattnet Viskar team up for what should be an excellent double bill at Saint Vitus tonight.

Vaz, Anwar Sadat, Guardian Alien, The Library Is On Fire @ Death By Audio
Louisville's Anwar Sadat make fast, angry post-punk that doesn't feel weird being compared to The Jesus Lizard or Big Black. Tonight's their second of two NYC shows this weekend, and really the whole bill is killer with noise crew Vaz, Guardian Alien (aka the insane drumming of ex-Liturgy skinsman Greg Fox plus lots of noise) and shoegazy punks The Library Is On Fire.

Antibalas, LP, Angelique Kidjo, John Doe & guests @ City Winery
City Winery founder Michael Dorf presents a Paul Simon tribute show at Carnegie Hall tomorrow, but at his own venue tonight there will be a live rehearsal show of Simon's music with the above-mentioned artists and other special guests.

Call Of The Wild, Tournament, Hellbear, Iron Force @ Union Pool
Heavy garage rockers Call of the Wild team up with their punky Brooklyn neighbors Tournament, their speed metal Brooklyn neighbors Iron Force, and Richmond's Hellbear. Earplugs recommended.

Lady Gaga @ Roseland Ballroom
The long-lived NYC venue Roseland Ballroom will be closing its doors in early April, but before then it will go out with seven Lady Gaga shows, this being the second.

Hannibal Buress, Michael Che, Bridget Everett, Kurt Metzger, DJ Roofeeo & "a VERY special musical guest" @ Knitting Factory Brooklyn
Hannibal Buress' birthday may be February 4, but he's choosing March 30 as the day of his birthday celebration at Knitting Factory, where he performs for every Sunday. A bunch of his friends are announced for this one, but what isn't announced is the "VERY special musical guest." Who could it be? Usually his shows are in the front room, but this time he takes over the main room, and its sold out.

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

For laughs, check out the NYC Comedy calendar too.

I'm so drunk right now, I tried to dip a pretzel rod into my hummus and missed it.
