GOAT @ MHOW 2013 (more by PSquared)

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

Goat, Holy Wave @ Webster Hall
Sweden's best psychedelic freakout, Italo-horror movie voodoo blood sacrifice soundtrack band bring their pagan disco to NYC. Fun!

Jungle, Beaty Heart @ Bowery Ballroom
Somewhat enigmatic dance duo Jungle turn out to be a traditional -- but good -- dancerock act live, filled out by a host of pro players. No denying "The Heat" is a killer single.

Nicole Atkins @ Madison Square Park
The kickoff to the Oval Lawn Series of free shows in Madison Square Park, Nicole Atkins will make for a nice early evening show.

Jean Grae, Corn Mo, Shellshag @ Matchless
While the music portion is over, Northside Festival is still going with its film portion. Tonight is a party for the Brooklyn Comedy Festival featuring live music in the back room with rapper Jean Grae, multi-hyphenate Corn Mo, and duo Shellshag. Free with RSVP.

Tigers Jaw, Pity Sex, Loose Planes @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Tigers Jaw's new record, Charmer, is unlike anything they've done before, far mopier and more Smiths (or at least Smiths via Brand New) than any of their other records. Joining them are their labelmates Pity Sex, who took a similar path from emo to something more traditionally indie rock.

Little Racer, Painted Zeros @ Pianos
Brooklyn band Little Racer have been at it for a while now, making very catchy, UK-inspired guitar pop. Tonight's the third show of their June residency at Pianos.

The National, Lord Huron @ Prospect Park Bandshell
The National have a very impressive run of killer indie rock records, and despite their often-somber sounds, they're far from a boring live band. Night two of their three-night Celebrate Brooklyn! run.

Dave Chappelle @ Radio City Music Hall
Comedian Dave Chappelle is back in a big way, doing a whopping nine nights at Radio City Music Hall. This is the first.

Vasudeva, The Ambulars, Country Drop, Life Eaters @ Shea Stadium
If you're headed to this show at Shea tonight, one band we especially recommend catching is The Ambulars, whose most recent record, 2012's Dreamers Asleep At The Wheel, came out on Salinas Records (Swearin', Radiator Hospital) and is an excellent example of the kind of pop punk-leaning indie rock that label is known for.

Dave Hill, Valley Lodge, David Cross, Juliana Hatfield, Michael Che, Jean Grae, Kate Berlant, Marcus Monroe @ The Bell House
Dave Hill's monthly series, "Meet Me in the Bathroom and Tell Me All Your Secrets," moves from Union Hall to the Bell House for this extra large edition with a cavalcade of big names. Hill promises "an incredible night of comedy, music and gunplay."

Reggie Watts @ Town Hall
The multitalented Reggie Watts finally plays an NYC venue as big as his hair.

Bambara, Himomitsdad, Advaeta @ Union Pool
A good trio of local acts headlined by the gothy, very very loud Bambara.

Big Terrific @ Cameo
Max Silvestri hosts the free weekly comedy show in the back of Williamsburg's Lovin' Cup. No word on who's performing tonight, but Max usually lets us know via his Twitter.

9:55 - agree with the act and the fans, but a bad night in Prospect Park is better than a good day at work

Body bags and little rags of children torn in two
The jellied brains of those who remain put the finger right on you
As the madmen play on words and make us all dance to their song
To the tune of starving millions, to make a better kind of gun
