You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Jock Club, Bookworms, Soren, Encapsulate @ Bossa Nova Civic Club
This free show is part of Ascetic House's long Independence Day Weekend in NYC. It includes Destruction Unit drummer Andrew Flores' electronic project Jock Club, L.I.E.S. producer Bookworms, Soren of Rosenkopf, and Encapsulate.
Honduras, Life Size Maps, Happy Lives, Chimes, Water @ Palisades
Honduras bring a lot of different influences to the table. A little garage, yes, but there's '80s/'90s British indie too. While it may not be anything you haven't exactly heard before, Honnduras write very hooky songs and, as importantly, the bring a real energy to the performance. Tonight they headline a solid bill of local bands.
Grateful Dead 'Sunshine Daydream' film screening @ City Winery
Beloved jam pioneers the Grateful Dead have a new documentary, Sunshine Daydream, which was shot at their August 27, 1972 concert at the Old Renaissance Faire Grounds in Veneta, Oregon. Head to City Winery tonight for a screening. RSVP here.
Hannibal Buress @ Knitting Factory
Big league comedy talent (Chris Rock, Louis CK, etc) show up regularly (and unannounced) for Hannibal's very popular free comedy show at Knitting Factory's front bar. Having had his own Comedy Central special and a featured performer on Broad City, Hannibal himself is getting pretty big league. Get there early.
