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

Turn To Crime, Dinowalrus, Banana Kiss @ Cake Shop
Detroit's Turn to Crime make soulful garage rock that at times has a warm lived-in quality but also has its scratchy paranoid moments as well. Such are the times.

Dan Deacon, Eaters @ Rough Trade
Dan Deacon's new album Gliss Riffer is out today and he'll celebrate tonight with what's a fairly small show for him. Expect a lot of audience participation. If you're going, get there early for Brooklyn duo Eaters who are worth seeing.

Julia Holter, Alex Temple, Spektral Quartet @ Merkin Concert Hall (Ecstatic Music Fest)
Experimental pop great Julia Holter teams up with Chicago chamber ensemble Spektral Quartet for the world premiere of Alex Temple's "Behind the Wallpaper" and a set of arrangements of her own songs as well.

Swami John Reis & The Blind Shake, The So So Glos @ Saint Vitus
The great John Reis (Rocket from the Crypt, Drive Like Jehu, Hot Snakes, etc) has teamed up with hard-hitting garage rock trio The Blind Shake to pay tribute to classic surf rock instrumentals on a new collaborative album, Modern Surf Classics. They play their first of two NYC shows tonight.

Ariel Pink, Jack Name @ Terminal 5
Ariel Pink is capable of sublime pop and novelty rock, as heard on last year's pom pom (sometimes within the same song). Likewise, his shows can be brilliant or a big mess...but they're rarely boring.

Kayo Dot, Enablers, Insect Ark, Center Divider @ Mercury Lounge
Metal boundary pushers Kayo Dot headline this excellent bill with experimental rock collective Enablers, Michael Gira collaborator Insect Ark (aka Dana Schecter), and another relatively likeminded local band, Center Divider.

Kurt Braunohler @ The Bell House
Kurt Braunohler is touring in support of his new Comedy Central web series Roustabout that had him jet skiing from Chicago to New Orleans for charity. Will he be jet skiing to this show? The Gowanus is nearby.

Kate Pierson @ City Winery
The bouffanted B-52's singer just released her first-ever solo album, Guitars and Microphones, and will be celebrating tonight at this show. The LP is riddled with guest appearances, so who knows who might show up.

Lauryn Hill @ Blue Note
Lauryn Hill's currently in the midst of a nine-show NYC run on her intimate acoustic tour. She plays twice tonight, early and late shows.

Pile, Solids, Leapling, Radiator King @ Palisades
Palisades hosts a solid indie rock bill tonight with Boston's post-hardcore-leaning Pile, Canada fuzz rock duo Solids, Brooklyn's poppy Leapling and Boston's folky Radiator King.

Dropdead, Creeping Dose, Narcoleptics, Grudges @ Acheron
Providence hardcore vets Dropdead have been going strong for over two decades, and even their newest material (they put out an EP last year) continues to rip.

Irma Thomas, Lee Fields, Eric Krasno, Alecia Chakour, The Dynamites @ BB King'
Two classic soul veterans, Irma Thomas and Lee Fields, come together for this 'Blues at The Crossroads' show that also includes Soulive/Lettuce's Eric Krasno, Warren Haynes Band's Alecia Chakour and The Dynamites.

Todd Barry, Myq Kaplan, Micah Sherman, The Enemy, Professional Strong-Man Chris "Wonder" Schoeck, Atomic Showgirls, Brian & Edy, + more!
"No Feelings Presents" is a monthly variety show featuring "the best improv teams, stand-up comics, and unique variety acts in New York." Todd Barry and Myq Kaplan highlight tonight's guests.

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

Chance

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

Chance the Rapper @ Webster Hall
Chance the Rapper has two albums planned for this year, one on his own and one with a live band. He's still being pretty mysterious about most of it, but the bits we've heard have sounded pretty great. Maybe we'll get some more sneak peeks at new stuff tonight.

Dipset @ BB King's
The full Dipset crew -- Cam'ron, Jim Jones, Juelz Santana and Freekey Zekey -- are finally officially back in action and have a new mixtape planned for this year. The songs they've put out from it so far have them sounding like they're still in great form. Tonight's the first of two NYC shows on this tour.

Screaming Females @ Rough Trade
Screaming Females are already known for their shredding guitar solos, but the new album Rose Mountain has the band focusing a little more on great choruses. It's up their with the best of their previous work. Tonight's the first of four NYC shows on this tour in support of it, and to get in you have to buy the new album at the Rough Trade store today.

The Twilight Sad, Port St. Willow @ Baby's All Right
The Twilight Sad's last headlining show here was playing their 2007 debut in full, but they also put a new album out very soon after that. Now they return and we'll presumably hear more from the new one this time.

Timber Timbre, Torres @ Bowery Ballroom
Timber Timbre returned last year with Hot Dreams that had their unique brand of noir folk sounding good as ever. Tonight their current tour stops in NYC for its second of two Bowery Ballroom shows, and the equally great Torres opens.

Buke and Gase, Landlady @ Mercury Lounge
Buke & Gase make their own instruments, and they also get pretty eccentric sounds out of them. Catch them tonight with Adam Schatz's band Landlady.

Beat Market, Le Couleur, Second Still @ Pianos
Montreal trio Le Couleur take elements of disco, electro and francophone styles, add a bit of glitter and voila: an appealing, danceable sound. This free, early show is in celebration of their new EP and is with another Montreal band, Beat Market.

Elvis Perkins @ The Standard
Elvis Perkins' folky new album is out today, and while his proper tour won't hit NYC until April, tonight you can catch this free one-off at The Standard's Penthouse. To attend you need to RSVP by sending an email to AOhayon@standardhotels.com

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

Timber Timbre

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

Timber Timbre, ThusOwls @ Bowery Ballroom
Timber Timbre returned last year with Hot Dreams that had their unique brand of noir folk sounding good as ever. Tonight their current tour stops in NYC for its first of two Bowery Ballroom shows.

Lauryn Hill @ Highline Ballroom
Lauryn Hill's currently in the midst of a nine-show NYC run on her intimate acoustic tour. This is the third show, and it's sold out.

1349, Origin, Abysmal Dawn, Wolvhammer @ Gramercy Theatre
Norwegian black metal vets 1349 headline this stacked show that also features tech death freaks Origin, Relapse DMers Abysmal Dawn and the blackened Wolvhammer.

Ricky Eat Acid, Glass Gang, Conner Youngblood, Abhi//Dijon @ Mercury Lounge
When the very busy Sam Ray isn't playing in his punk band Teen Suicide or his indie rock band Julia Brown, he's making electronic music as Ricky Eat Acid, the moniker he plays under tonight.

Doe, Piers, Surfbort, Lame @ Palisades
UK trio Doe pull from '90s indie rock and emo influences. With a new compliation out on Old Flame, the band are over for a bunch of NYC-area shows, this being the second.

Philm, Gozu, Long Day Gone @ Saint Vitus
Sadly Dave Lombardo is no longer behind the kit in Slayer, but luckily the skins master is keeping busy with other projects. His new-ish band Philm hits Saint Vitus tonight for their first of two NYC shows on their ongoing tour.

Diet Cig, Charly Bliss, Earl Boykins, Pocket Hercules @ Silent Barn
New Paltz DIY pop band Diet Cig celebrate their new Over Easy EP (on Father/Daughter records) at this release show tonight with other local likeminded bands.

Sapropelic Pycnic, Blood Magic Duo, Rob Jacobs, Voice Coils @ Trans-Pecos
The touring artist tonight is Rob Jacobs of Chicago experimental trio Wei Zhongle, who just put out his debut solo album which is highlighted by his very eccentric voice. He's joined by Blood Magic Duo (aka Jason Ajemian & Jason Nazary), Sapropelic Pycnic (aka Kathleen of Spires That in the Sunset Rise), and the Mitski-fronted prog supergroup Voice Coils.

DonChristian, Butch Dawson, Black Zheep DZ, Soduh, Ryan P., Elon @ Baby's All Right
Local rapper DonChristian put out the solid Renzo Piano album last year that featured Le1f and Antwon, and if you like the kind of dark, left-field stuff those guys make, you'll likely dig DonChristian too.

Night Train w/ Wyatt Cenac @ Littlefield
For tonight's weekly Night Train comedy series, Cenac welcomes D.C. Benny, Hari Kondabolu, Jo Firestone and more.

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

Helmet

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

They Might Be Giants, Jonathan Coulton @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Everyone's favorite geek rockers They Might Be Giants continue their monthly MHOW residency tonight, playing songs from their first album, their new Dial-A-Song project, and more. Their pal Jonathan Coulton opens.

Helmet @ Saint Vitus
20 years ago Helmet released their third album, Betty, which saw them pushing alt-metal's boundaries and incorporating sounds from outside the genre. Now for its anniversary, they're playing the album in full (plus a lot of other songs) on this tour which hits NYC for three sold-out shows. This is the third.

PRhyme (DJ Premier & Royce da 5'9"), Your Old Droog, Boldy James @ Highline Ballroom
Some people say last year was a bad year for rap -- besides Run the Jewels at least -- but another duo of veterans revitalizing their careers gave RTJ a run for their money. DJ Premier and Royce da 5'9" put out an all-killer album that definitely recalled rap's golden era, but didn't sound dated. Tonight their tour in support of it hits NYC. Nas soundalike Your Old Droog opens.

Shellshag, Fleabite, Katherine, Alice @ Silent Barn
Local DIY faves Shellshag team up with Boston's Fleabite, Columbus' Katherine, and new Don Giovanni signees Alice for this matinee show that's raising money for Boston's Smash It Dead Fest.

Crosss, Advertising, Cellphone @ Union Pool
If you enjoy doomy riffs but always wanted to hear more traditional indie rock vocals paired with them, Canadian band Crosss have you covered. This, their second of two NYC stops as part of their tour with crazed psych-punks Cellphone, should be a good show.

Tonight's also the 87th Annual Academy Awards with host Neil Patrick Harris. Will it be Boyhood or Birdman?

Hull

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

Quilt, Monograms, King Cyst @ Brooklyn Night Bazaar
With last year's Held in Splendor, Boston quartet Quilt trancended the paisley folk of their debut into a more complex, more appealing band whose influences were a little harder to pin down. The great songs and harmonies remained. They're great live and this show is free.

Helmet @ Bowery Ballroom
20 years ago Helmet released their third album, Betty, which saw them pushing alt-metal's boundaries and incorporating sounds from outside the genre. Now for its anniversary, they're playing the album in full (plus a lot of other songs) on this tour which hits NYC for three sold-out shows. This is the second.

Retox, Whores, Primitive Weapons, Fashion Week @ Saint Vitus
Justin Pearson is man of many bands. The most popular is probably the wacky post-hardcore of The Locust, but for Retox and strips things down and delivers fast, raw punk rock. Heavy noise rockers Whores are just as excellent, and tonight's local support ain't half bad either.

Hull, Wizard Rifle, Elder, Cleanteeth @ Coco 66
Hull have been one of Brooklyn's better sludge bands for years, but unfortunately they're calling it a day. Before that though, they'll play one final show tonight.

Cellphone, Crosss @ Cake Shop
If you enjoy doomy riffs but always wanted to hear more traditional indie rock vocals paired with them, Canadian band Crosss have you covered. This is their first of two NYC stops as part of their tour with crazed psych-punks Cellphone. This'll be a good show.

The Left Banke, Field Guides, Color Collage @ Fulton Stall Market
This is a mini record fare, featuring a mix of labels and used vendors...plus live music from '60s legends The Left Banke and more. If you're wondering, it's indoors.

Mary Lorson, The Sharp Things @ Living Room
Mary Lorson was once singer for early-'90s NYC band Madder Rose. Lately she's been performing a high-concept show called "Signals: A Performance Memoir."

Anasazi, L.O.T.I.O.N., Sadist, Nandas @ Palisades
Tonight Palisades plays host to some of the city's best (and most active) punk bands, headlined by the post-punk-leaning Anasazi.

Doe, The Academics, Marco With Love, Wendy Hackett Band, Garett Olson and the 49th Parallel @ Pianos
UK trio Doe pull from '90s indie rock and emo influences. With a new compliation out on Old Flame, the band are over for a bunch of NYC-area shows, this being the first.

NGHBRS, Fort Lean, The Henry Millers @ Rough Trade
Though they've been around since the start of this decade, Brooklyn-via-Wesleyan band Fort Lean are only now just getting around to releasing their debut album, out this spring. Catch them tonight on this bill of similar poppy indie.

Palberta, Dead Wives, Flagland, The Gradients, Big Neck Police @ Shea Stadium
There's plenty of good bands on this bill, but most notable is Dead Wives, the band fronted by Speedy Ortiz drummer Mike Falcone.

Francisco The Man, Jackson Scott, Writer @ The Studio at Webster Hall
The Fat Possum-signed Francisco The Man make shoegazey indie rock that's not shy on the big hooks. Their labelmate Jackson Scott and local rockers Writer open.

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

Cakes Da Killa

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

Ms. Lauryn Hill @ Highline Ballroom
Lauryn Hill's currently in the midst of a nine-show NYC run on her intimate acoustic tour. This is the second show, and it's sold out.

JD Samson (of Le Tigre), Born Cages, Royal Tongues, Shirley House @ Brooklyn Night Bazaar
MEN's JD Samson will be performing live tonight as part of a group with Tami Hart (MEN), Lorna Dune and Aaron Harris. It's free, like most Night Bazaar shows, with food, games, shopping and other things to keep you entertained.

Cakes Da Killa, Uniiqu3, Cunt Mafia, Rizzla, Tigga, LA TRICK$, Special Guests @ Baby's All Right
Cakes Da Killa just put out his new IMF EP, which (like a lot of his previous work), has his unconventional dizzying flow over dark, murky production. Stream it below.

Obliterations, Sick Feeling, Mammal, Raid @ Saint Vitus
This great double-billed hardcore tour of Southern Lord-signed LA band Obliterations (not to be confused with the Norwegian Relapse-signed band Obliteration) and NYC's Geoff Rickly-approved Sick Feeling hits Vitus tonight.

Iron Chic, After the Fall, Up For Nothing, City Limits @ Union Hall
Long Island's Iron Chic are equal parts raspy-voiced punk and anthemic indie rock, and tonight's their first headlining NYC show in a while.

You Blew It!, Tiny Moving Parts, Sorority Noise, Rozwell Kid @ The Studio at Webster Hall
Good bill all around of guitar bands with '90s-style emo band You Blew It!, mathy post-hardcore band Tiny Moving Parts, DIY rockers Sorority Noise, and scrappy shredders Rozwell Kid.

Bambara, Chimes, BBIGPIGG, Conduct @ Trans-Pecos
Brooklyn's Bambara sound like their name: loud and pummelling. A little dark too; 2013's Dream Violence mixes gothy shoegaze with a good sense of melody... plus shringy feedback.

Quarterbacks, Crying, LVL UP, Long Beard @ Aviv
Quarterbacks recently put out their new self-titled lo-fi pop album, and tonight they celebrate it with chiptune pop punks Crying, trad-style indie rockers LVL UP, and bare bones singer/songwriter Long Beard.

Young Ejecta, Bruce Smear, Solvey @ Baby's All Right
Young Ejecta (aka Joel Ford and Leanne Macomber) celebrate the release of their new mini-LP, The Planet, tonight. If you're going, get there early to catch Solvey, aka Zambri's Jessica Zambri in solo mode.

Florist, Cyberbully Mom Club, Vagabon, Jawbreaker Reunion, Fern Mayo @ Silent Barn
This is a cool mostly-local DIY show with Epoch associate Florist, Philly twee folk trio Cyberbully Mom Club, indie rockers Vagabon, indie punks Jawbreaker Reunion, and the noisy Fern Mayo.

Eliot Glazer, Dave Hill, Marnie the Dog @ Littlefield
Eliot Glazer (brother of Broad City's Ilana Glazer) brings his classically-trained pipes to his live show "Haunting Renditions" where he takes some of pop music's most infamous songs and turns them into highbrow, sweeping ballads. Tonight's special guests are Dave Hill and Marnie the Dog. Expecting howling...probably from Hill.

Swearin

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

Sharon Van Etten, Leon Bridges @ Warsaw
Sharon Van Etten's 2014 album, Are We There, ended up on a ton of year-end lists (including our own), and deservedly so because few of her peers can craft a song like SVE. Tonight she concludes her 2-night stand at Warsaw. Sold out.

Swearin', The Goodbye Party, Attendant @ Baby's All Right
Half of Swearin' is heading out on a long tour later this year as members of Waxahatchee's first band, but first they'll squeeze in their own show. Opening are two solid bands -- The Goodbye Party and the Radiator Hospital-related Attendant -- who go well with Swearin's trad-style indie rock.

Le1f, Mykki Blanco, Kingdom @ NYU Kimmel Center
Le1f and Mykki Blanco are two of NYC's best and most eccentric young rappers, and tonight they team up for this show which is free for NYU students and only $5 for the general public. Night Slugs-signed electronic musician Kingdom opens.

JD Samson, Alexis Blair-Penny, Angel-Favorite, Eli Escobar, Nancy Whang, Amber Valentine @ Union Pool
Tonight is JD Samson's party, Pat, that focuses on "good vibes, good sound, video projection by local video artists and DJ's that aren't afraid to go deep." There are DJs in the front room and the back performance space, and it's free.

Emmy the Great, Clementine & the Galaxy @ Mercury Lounge
Emmy the Great gets poppier than her previous work on her new S EP, and her current tour is as a three-piece band with choreographed dance moves and on-screen projections. Tonight's her second of two NYC shows on the tour.

Nightmares On Wax (DJ Set), Sticky Dojah @ Verboten
Nightmares on Wax helped pioneer the trip-hop sound while never being fully associated with the genre, with records out on such labels as Mo'Wax, Warp, and Matador.

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

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

Sharon Van Etten, Leon Bridges @ Warsaw
Sharon Van Etten's 2014 album, Are We There, ended up on a ton of year-end lists (including our own), and deservedly so because few of her peers can craft a song like SVE. Tonight she begins her 2-night stand at Warsaw. Both sold out.

Helmet @ Bowery Ballroom
20 years ago Helmet released their third album, Betty, which saw them pushing alt-metal's boundaries and incorporating sounds from outside the genre. Now for its anniversary, they're playing the album in full on this tour which hits NYC for three sold-out shows. This is the first.

Jefre Cantu-Ledesma, GDFX, GABI, Austin Cesear @ Baby's All Right
On his new album A Year with 13 Moons, Jefre Cantu-Ledesma weaves sonic tapestries of ethereal beauty, chilled out beats and white noise. Is it a little like Ulrich Schnauss? At times, yes. (It's weirder,though.) He plays tonight with GABI who is signed to Mexican Summer imprint Software.

Paul Collins' Beat, Dirty Fences, Memorial Gore @ Cake Shop
Former Nerves songwriter and power pop godfather Paul Collins helped pioneer a jangly sound that's still being imitated today. Catch him tonight with two local garage pop bands.

Helado Negro, thingNY @ Merkin Concert Hall
Part of the Ecstatic Music Festival, Helado Negro (aka Robert Carlos Lange) performs his "Brain Finger Composition," in which he controls musical parameters using yarn tethered to live musicians, with help from experimental music collective thingNY.

Beverly @ Jewish Museum
This is the opening celebration of the Jewish Museum's "Helena Rubinstein: Beauty Is Power," with a performance by Brooklyn indie pop band Beverly. Also: open bar.

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

Colin Hay @ City Winery
Who can it be now? It's former Men at Work singer Colin Hay, who plays the final of his three City Winery shows this evening.

Assembly: Aaron Arntz, Ben Campbell & Christopher Bear @ Manhattan Inn
Grizzly Bear drummer Christopher Bear's trio with live GB member Aaron Arntz and Joakim collaborator Ben Campbell play this free late show at Manhattan Inn tonight. 10:30 start.

Res @ Rockwood Musc Hall

A Place to Bury Strangers, Grooms, Ed Schrader's Music Beat @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Having both played the final night of Death by Audio, bands A Place to Bury Strangers and Grooms release their new albums today and celebrate with this show. Also on the bill: Frasier-loving Baltimore duo Ed Schrader's Music Beat.

Doomtree, Open Mike Eagle @ Highline Ballroom
It's a good double header of alternative rap at Highline Ballroom tonight with Minneapolis collective Doomtree, who put out a new album on their own label last mont, and Chicago rapper Open Mike Eagle, who put out Dark Comedy last year.

Walter Schreifels & the Dead Heavens, Gates, Twin Strike, Descender @ Saint Vitus
Post-hardcore legend Walter Schreifels dives into the heavy psych and garage rock of the late '60s for Dead Heavens, one of two newly-formed bands he's fronting. Tonight's the second of their three-show residency at Saint Vitus.

Jeffrey Lewis, Diane Cluck, Kid In The Attic @ Trans-Pecos
Jeffrey Lewis wraps up his tour with fellow folk singer Diane Cluck at this show presented by NYC Taper, so if you can't make it (or want a memento), expect recordings of the show not too long after.

Nick Hakim, Honduras, Adrianne Lenker and Buck Meekv @ Mercury Lounge
This is a makeup show for Nick Hakim's final date of his Mercury Lounge residency which was rescheduled due to Winter Storm Juno.

George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic @ BB King's
The legendary George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic pushed the boundaries of rock, soul, funk and psychedelia on their classic early '70s albums, and they're still at it. Released late 2014, First Ya Gotta Shake the Gate was the first Funkadelic record in in six years.

Lauryn Hill @ Rough Trade
This is the first of Lauryn Hill's nine NYC dates as part of her "Small Axe" acoustic tour. Sold out.

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

Emmy the Great, Stranger Cat, Aimee Debeer, Will Sheff (DJ Set) @ Baby's All Right
Once known for delicate, emotionally bare folk, Emmy the Great signed to Bella Union and, on her new EP, now has a more lush sound in line with the label's roster (Fleet Foxes, Beach House). She's always been a real charmer live, which we don't imagine has changed. Okkervil River's Will Sheff, meanwhile, DJs in the front room.

Dave Chappelle @ Gramercy Theatre (late show)
After a lengthy vacation from the spotlight, one of our sharpest comic minds returned to the stage a couple years ago. It's good to have him back. Tonight's the last of his Gramercy Theatre run, with 7 PM and 10 PM shows.

Gingerlys, Melt, Leave the Planet, Wild Pink @ Palisades
Tonight's your last chance to catch UK dreampop duo Leave the Planet (worth heading out in the cold for if you like the etherial/indiepop side of shoegaze) and are well pared with locals Gingerlys and Melt.

Night Train @ Littlefield
Phoebe Robinson and The Daily Shows's Jessica Williams (who host UCB's Blaria LIVE!) fill in for Wyatt Cenac tonight, with guests Matteo Lane, Jim Tews, Bryan Babylon, Liza Treyger, and Michelle Billoon.

Colin Hay @ City Winery
Who can it be now? It's former Men at Work singer Colin Hay, who begins his three-night City Winery residency this evening.

Theophilus London, Doja Cat, Father @ Bowery Ballroom
With a unique sense of style and a new album executive produced by Kanye West, Theophilus London puts a new wave spin on R&B. Sold out.
