Sky Ferreira at Rough Trade in 2013 (more by Chris La Putt)
Sky F

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

Sky Ferreira @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
This show is a benefit for the David Lynch Foundation which "funds Transcendental Meditation (TM) programs for at-risk students; veterans with PTSD; women who are survivors of domestic violence; American Indians suffering from diabetes; the homeless and incarcerated." Sold out.

LAMC
The Latin Alternative Music Conference continues today, and among the day's events is a free multi-genre show at Central Park Summerstage with The Beatnuts, Ana Tijoux, Bodega Bamz and DJ Tony Touch.

Crosby, Stills and Nash @ Beacon Theater
One of the most distinctive harmony styles in rock music, David Crosby, Stephen Stills and Graham Nash's music has endured for over 40 years. This is the second of three nights at the Beacon.

Pokey LaFarge, Sturgill Simpson @ Bowery Ballroom
Pokey LaFarge's last album was his self-titled LP that came out last year via Third Man. It's a collection of old-timey folk with unpolished acoustic instrumentation that ignores modern folk trends, and instead sounds decades-old.

The Defibulators @ Bryant Park
And if old-timey sounds are your thing, you might wanna catch this early Defibulators show (6-7 PM) before heading to Bowery for Pokey.

Nightmares on Wax @ Irving Plaza
Nightmares on Wax helped pioneer the trip-hop sound while never being fully associated with the genre and has had records out on Mo'Wax, Warp, and Matador.

Yes, Syd Arthur @ Radio City Music Hall
The prog rock vets -- which are currently Chris Squire, Steve Howe, Alan White, Geoff Downes, and new(ish) vocalist Jon Davison -- hit one of NYC's toniest venues. If you're going, do check out openers Syd Arthur who do an appealing modern take on the genre.

Violent Bullshit, A Touch of North America, Ice Balloons, Colombian Necktie @ The Acheron
It's a good bill at Acheron tonight with heavy NYC punks Violent Bullshit (mems Orchid, Les Savy Fav, etc), psychedelic art punks Ice Balloons (mem TV on the Radio) and more.

Snoop Dogg @ The Capitol Theatre
Regardless of your thoughts on Snoop Dogg's recent name change to Snoop Lion and new reggae direction, it's undeniable that he's put out some of best rap of the golden era and plenty of unstoppable hits since then too. Plus, his live shows are always a great time. Tonight's his second of two NYC-area shows this week.

Greg Barris, Reggie Watts @ Union Hall
This is Greg Barris' "UNBUNNED" show which is a good chance to see Watts who just headlined Town Hall. Union Hall is slightly smaller. Tickets are still available.

The Felice Brothers, Robert Ellis @ Webster Hall
The Felice Brothers offer more of their rootsy folk rock on this year's Favorite Waitress, and tonight the band who played a handful of smaller NYC shows earlier this year, step up to the big Webster Hall.

Yung Lean, Don Christian, Black Kray (early and late shows) @ Marlin Room at Webster Hall
Teenage Swedish rapper Yung Lean is currently in the US where he'll play three NYC shows. Two at Marlin Room tonight, and a much smaller one at Palisades tomorrow.

Dave Alvin and Phil Alvin with The Guilty Ones, Jonah Tolchin with the Lonesome Angels @ City Winery
Dave and Phil Alvin are/were both members of veteran roots rock band The Blasters whose debut LP came out in 1980, and the pair just put out a new album together on Yep Roc this year. Their labelmate Jonah Tolchin also put one out on that label this year, which features a guest spot from Deer Tick's John McCauley.

Spazzkid, Ricky Eat Acid, Young Yeller, Photay @ Glasslands
It's a good night for electronic sounds at Glasslands tonight with the synth pop of Spazzkid, Ricky Eat Acid's sample-based music, former Chrome Sparks member Jesse Brickel's Young Yeller project, and IDM producer Photay.

French Style Furs, Sacco, Modern Vices @ Rough Trade
French Style Furs feature members of Cold War Kids and We Are Barbarians, and make the kind of anthemic indie you might expect. Chicago's Modern Vices open the show with their soulful take on garage pop.

Aye Nako, Pony Bones, Ovlov, Black Norse, Francis @ Silent Barn
NYC's Aye Nako make excellent melodic punk, and Pony Bones is the current band of Matt Robidoux who's currently on hiatus from Speedy Ortiz.

Big Terrific Comedy Show @ Cameo Gallery
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.

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

Sure is a lot of good options for music tonight, but I bet a lot of you will stay home and stroke a tiny dick instead.
