You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Modern Baseball, Jeff Rosenstock, Pinegrove @ Baby's All Right
We're still waiting to hear more about Modern Baseball's supposedly quite different-sounding new album, but in the meantime tonight we'll get to hear old favorites in a place way smaller than they usually play. (And maybe a new one too?) Between the always-fun Jeff Rosenstock, and young indie rockers Pinegrove who release their very good new album today, this show should be great all around. Sold out.
PUP, Pkew Pkew Pkew @ Saint Vitus
Toronto punks PUP have always played like they were rock stars since their earliest shows at tiny DIY spots, and now they're moving up in the world for real. Their next NYC show is at Music Hall of Williamsburg, so tonight's Vitus show might be the smallest place you see them here for a while. Sold out.
Chuck Ragan & the Camaraderie, Cory Branan @ Rough Trade
When Chuck Ragan's not making raucous punk rock with Hot Water Music, he strips things down for his folk-oriented solo project.
Screaming Females, Dark Thoughts @ Monty Hall
NJ shredders Screaming Females always put on a killer show and they change it up a lot too. Tonight's their first of two shows at home state venue Monty Hall. Both sold out.
Fleshgod Apocalypse, Carach Angren, Abigail Williams, Winter Nights @ Gramercy Theatre
Abigail Williams ditched their symphonic metal and melodic metalcore styles a while ago. They're now a black metal band, and last year's The Accuser is pretty great. Tonight they open for the classically-tinged tech-death band Fleshgod Apocalypse, who probably do fit in better with their older material.
Mike Birbiglia @ The Lynn Redgrave Theater
Comedian Mike Birbiglia has been doing his show "Thank God for the Jokes" for nearly two years. He's finally putting it to bed, but not before this six-week run.
For all of tonight's shows, and tomorrow's, check out our NYC concert calendar.

Julia Holter has shared the video for "Everytime Boots," from last year's terrific Have You In My Wilderness. The video was directed by Ramona Gonzalez (aka Nite Jewel) who also stars in it as well, playing an enigmatic girl following a cowboy (Rene Solomon) following another cowboy (Julia Holter). Follow that? It's all rather whimsical and you can watch it below.
Original Woodstock architect Michael Lang has plans to put on a 50th anniversary festival, presumably in 2019. According to the Poughkeepsie Journal:
Lang told the Journal that discussions are under way with potential partners and different locations are being explored. An overseas event, in addition to one being planned for the U.S., is possible. Details on potential locations and possible performers were not available.Lang previously tried to get a 40th Anniversary Woodstock show to happen in Prospect Park back in 2009, but he was ultimately unsuccessful. Hopefully this one will pan out.
Lang said he foresees an annual festival, staged with the Woodstock name, continuing on beyond the 50th anniversary.

Austin, Texas hardcore punk legends The Dicks were around in the early/mid '80s with releases on SST and Alternative Tentacles, and they've been reunited since 2004. This week (Friday, 2/12), a new documentary about them called The Dicks From Texas will hit the streets.
Before it's out, we're premiering a clip from the film that includes Henry Rollins and Ian MacKaye giving the band high praise and a short live clip. Henry talks about their Live at Raul's Club split with The Big Boys getting heavy rotation at the SST offices, and Ian discusses a show Minor Threat played with The Dicks opening.
Watch the clip, and the trailer and intro, below...
