Brian Wilson

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

Brian Wilson, Rodriguez @ Jones Beach
Pop legend Brian Wilson released a new solo album this year, and he's been playing some of that on this tour, but the majority of the 30+ song setlists have been Beach Boys favorites from "Little Deuce Coupe" to "Heroes and Villains" to "Sail On, Sailor." His band includes fellow Beach Boys Al Jardine and Blondie Chaplin. Making for a great double bill, storied folk singer Rodriguez opens.

Melvins, Le Butcherettes @ Santos Party House
Sludge vets Melvins last released Hold It In in 2014, and there's a documentary on them set to come out next year. Tonight's their second of two NYC shows with Le Butcherettes.

Miguel @ Le Poisson Rouge
Miguel's new album, Wildheart, is out today. Like his last one, it's sultry R&B with bits of psychedelia and rock guitar, and Miguel's fantastic voice leads the way. Tonight he plays this intimate free show (which you had to RSVP for), and he'll play a much bigger NYC show at Terminal 5 in August.

Vince Staples @ Apple Store Soho (5:30 PM)
Vince Staples put out his excellent debut LP this week. It's got futuristic production from No ID and a small impressive cast of collaborators, political of-the-moment lyrics, and killer delivery from Vince. He's in NYC for a discussion & short performance at the Apple Store Soho this evening, and then...

Fetty Wap, K Camp, Tink, Goldlink, Vince Staples, Raury, Shy Glizzy, OG Maco, Kidd Kidd, DeJ Loaf @ Best Buy Theater (XXL Freshmen Show)
...Vince heads to Best Buy Theater for the annual XXL Freshmen show. There are others worth catching at this one too, including "Trap Queen" hitmaker Fetty Wap, Tink, Goldlink, Raury, and DeJ Loaf, to name a few.

Sondre Lerche, Steve Marion, Jonas Alaska @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Sondre Lerche's ambitious 2014 album, Please, found him dealing with divorce but still managing to find a hummable tunes amidst all the raw nerves and bare emotions. He's a real charmer live.

Widowspeak, Small Black, Eternal Summers @ Brooklyn Bowl
Widowspeak sound rejuvenated on their forthcoming All Yours, managing to maintain their breathy vibe while finding fresh sounds. Get an early listen live tonight and if you're going, get there early for Virginia's Eternal Summers

Hugh Cornwell @ Good Room
The voice behind such songs as "Peaches," "Golden Brown," and "No More Heroes," the former Stranglers frontman plays with his solo band tonight.

Win Win, Cookies, DD Elle @ Rough Trade
Win Win have left their dancepop beginnings for a more textured, organic sound that's much harder to define on new album, Primaries. There's still an emphasis on rhythm and melody, but this is much weirder, trippier and more interesting. Tonight's the record release show.

Rooftops Films w/ Computer Magic, 'Bridesmaids' @ Solar One
It's a free night of entertainment in Kips Bay featuring the 2011 hit comedy Bridesmaids with an opening set from Brooklyn synthpop band Computer Magic. 8:30 doors.

Imagine Dragons, Metric, Halsey @ Barclays Center
We don't recommend seeing the headliner (or the opener), but it's a chance to see Canadian indie band Metric who recently put out the lead single from their upcoming sixth album.

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

Rush at Jones Beach in 2013 (more by Greg Cristman)
Rush
Sloan @ Music Hall of Williamsburg, 2012 (more by Greg Cristman)
IMAGE

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

Rush @ MSG
Rush have officially been a band for four decades, and in that time they've made challenging prog, blissful pop, and covered a lot of the ground in between. They're celebrating the 40th anniversary of this fruitful career on their current tour, which hits NYC tonight.

Sloan @ Rough Trade
While they haven't been going quite as long as Rush, fellow Canadians Sloan are equally beloved (though in probably different but overlapping circles.) Having released the terrific Commonwealth last year, the band will play most of that LP in their first set, and then features favorites from the rest of their career in a second set. Rough Trade is pretty small for them, this should be a treat.

Melvins, Le Butcherettes @ Santos Party House
Sludge vets Melvins last released Hold It In in 2014, and there's a documentary on them set to come out next year. Tonight's their first of two NYC shows with Le Butcherettes.

Crowbar, Battlecross, Lord Dying, Carcosa @ Saint Vitus
NOLA sludge band Crowbar are on tour in continued support of last year's Symmetry Black. It's also worth catching their Relapse-signed labelmates Lord Dying, who offer up some good High on Fire/early Mastodon worship.

Voice Coils, Nat Baldwin @ Roulette
Voice Coils is the proggy experimental pop collective with members of Roomrunner, Porches, Extra Life, Couch Slut and more. (Mitski is on their records but hasn't been playing live with them lately.) Tonight's the release show for their new EP, with quality support from Dirty Projectors member Nat Baldwin.

Metal Mountains, Jasmine Dreame Wagner, Charlie Rauh, Mia Theodoratus, Sun Riah @ Palisades
Minimalist psych-folk band Metal Mountains is the project of Helen Rush and Pat Gubler. They have a new record on the way, so maybe we'll hear some new ones tonight.

Lafawndah, ADR, Nightfeelings, L-Vis 1990, Soulmates, HD, Backdrop @ Baby's All Right
Eccentric genre-defying performer Lafawndah is playing Warm Up later this summer, but you can catch her in NYC tonight.

Tamara Renée, DonChristian, Amani @ Cameo
Singer/rapper Tamara Renee has a good mix of R&B/soul and rap on her Ultra Violet EP. Catch her live tonight with another quality local rapper, DonChristian.

Lee Ranaldo, Chris Corsano, Raül Fernandez Refree @ Joe's Pub
Sonic Youth's Lee Ranaldo has been working on a new record with Barcelona producer Raül Fernandez Refree, and tonight the pair will team up with drummer Chris Corsano for this "Barcelona Sounds" show.

Imagine Dragons, Metric, Halsey @ Prudential Center
We don't recommend seeing the headliner (or the opener), but it's a chance to see Canadian indie band Metric who recently put out the lead single from their upcoming sixth album. They do it again at Barclays Center tomorrow.

Night Train w/ Wyatt Cenac @ Littlefield
All aboard Wyatt Cenac's weekly comedy cavalcade, tonight with special guests Josh Gondelman, Mark Normand, Janelle James, Kendra Cunningham, and more

2014 NYC Gay Pride March (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Gay Pride 2014

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

NYC Pride March & Dance on the Pier
With Friday's historic Same Sex Marriage ruling, Pride levels are at an all-time high. Expect massive crowds at today's March and Dance on the Pier finale.

Contemporary Color @ Barclays Center
David Byrne's high-concept extravaganza Contemporary Color matches Blood Orange, Nelly Furtado, How To Dress Well, Kelis, St. Vincent, Nico Muhly (and Ira Glass), tUnE-YaRds, Money Mark, Ad Rock and more to high school color guards. It debuted in Toronto earlier this week to rave reviews and this is the second of two nights at Barclays.

They Might Be Giants @ Music Hall of Williamsburg (2 matinees)
TMBG's whimsically odd sense of humor was a natural match for kids and when they finally got around to making actual childrens' records, it was an instant hit. They'll be playing two family-friendly sets today at 12:30 PM and 3:30 PM.

75 Dollar Bill, Bill Orcutt, Tom Carter, Pat Noecker, Excepter DJs @ Trans-Pecos
Since his days in '90s noise band Harry Pussy, Bill Orcutt has been unleashing his frenetic, bluesy/jazzy blast guitar style upon the world. He plays tonight with Other Music-signed 75 Dollar Bill and more.

Tonstartssbandht, Steve JR, Macula Dog, Jerry Paper @ Baby's All Right
Montreal-via-Brooklyn experimental duo Tonstartssbandht headline this night of outsiders that's opened by Brooklyn's eccentric, robe-wearing Jerry Paper.

Broken Water, Katrina Stonehart, Mami @ Elvis Guesthouse
Olympia, WA's Broken Water seem caught between two worlds, though both could've existed in 1993. They have a fuzzy, pop side, as well as an aggressive, grungy punk side. They seem to like the dichotomy, and both sides can be heard on their new album,Wrought.

Porches, Frankie Cosmos @ Storm King Art Center
Storm King's not very far from NYC, and it's a gorgeous place to spend a weekend afternoon out of the city, even when there isn't live music. But today there is: related bands Porches and Frankie Cosmos. Shows are free with admission into the park.

Two-9, HD Been Dope, Depo, Bitches Is Crazy @ Gramercy Theatre
Atlanta rap crew Two-9 return to NYC tonight, and there's great local representation from Brooklyn rapper HD Been Dope and Bronx group Bitches Is Crazy.

D'Angelo, Meg Mac @ Starland Ballroom
Neo-soul great D'Angelo may take a very long time releasing albums, but it's always worth the wait because the three that he has are masterpieces. That includes 2014's Black Messiah.

Wolvserpent, Fell Voices, Svart Crown, Mutilation Rites @ Saint Vitus
It's the third and last night of the three-night Stardust festival at Saint Vitus, which brings a handful of diverse and awesome metal bands together for the weekend.

Mannequin Pussy, Kal Marks, IAN, Dead Tenants @ Palisades
Philly's shoegazy punks Mannequin Pussy and Boston's quirky indie rockers Kal Marks team up for this show, which is a pretty cool pairing.

Red City Radio, Banquets, Royal Psalms, Watermedown @ Riis Park Beach Bazaar
Oklahoma's Red City Radio make gravelly-voiced Hot Water Music-style punk, and despite losing one of their co-frontmen, this year's self-titled album has them remaining in great form.

Foxy Brown, Juliana Huxtable, Joey LaBeija, Cazwell @ The Westway
It's another installment of The Westway's 'Westgay' party, this time with Brooklyn hip hop vet Foxy Brown who has records dating back to the '90s as a solo artist and a member of Nas' group The Firm.

Jon and Josiah (from The Head and the Heart) @ The Surf Lodge
If taking a trip to the Hamptons is in the cards for you this weekend, spice up your stay there with some indie folk from two members of The Head and the Heart.

Justin Vivian Bond: Swallow My Pride @ Joe's Pub
A regular in NYC's drag scene for years, and once a member of the duo Kiki and Herb (with Kenny Mellman, who is now in The Julie Ruin), Justin Vivian Bond wraps up a 2-night stand at Joe's Pub tonight.

FarmBorough Festival @ Randall's Island
Randall's Island's first-ever country music festival wraps up today with Luke Bryan, Randy Hauser, and more.

Del Close Marathon
The Upright Citizens Brigade's annual around-the-clock improv onslaught brings unscripted laughs to a multitude of venues today, the last of the marathon.

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

Contemporary Color Toronto

Morrissey, Blondie @ Madison Square Garden
In good health now, Morrissey is here to play of the biggest rooms in NYC, a double bill with local legends Blondie.

Contemporary Color @ Barclays Center
Meanwhile, over at NYC's other basketball arena, David Byrne's high-concept extravaganza Contemporary Color matches Blood Orange, Nelly Furtado, How To Dress Well, Kelis, St. Vincent, Nico Muhly (and Ira Glass), tUnE-YaRds, Money Mark, Ad Rock and more to high school color guards. It debuted in Toronto earlier this week to rave reviews. This is the first of two nights at Barclays.

Rush @ Prudential Center
Rush have officially been a band for four decades, and in that time they've made challenging prog, blissful pop, and covered a lot of the ground in between. They're celebrating the 40th anniversary of this fruitful career on their current tour, which is just outside of NYC tonight and comes to MSG on Monday.

No Joy @ Rough Trade (1:30 PM)
No Joy's new album, More Faithful, is a great example of the possibilities still open within the shoegaze genre, making for an extremely satisfying listen. Live, they still turn things up to tinnitus-levels. This is a FREE afternoon show and the first 10 people through the door get a copy of More Faithful on cassette.

Destruction Unit, Cheena, Beech Creeps @ Union Pool (2 PM)
To quote Thee Oh Sees frontman John Dywer, Destruction Unit are "one of the most important underground bands in America," and seeing them just once can prove why. And with this band, seeing them a second time is often an entirely different experience. So even if you caught them at Palisades last night, it's worth getting to Union Pool this afternoon. Good openers too.

Broken Water, RIPS, Grooms @ Union Pool
You can just make a whole day of it at Union Pool: Olympia, WA's Broken Water seem caught between two worlds, though both could've existed in 1993. They have a fuzzy, pop side, as well as an aggressive, grungy punk side. They seem to like the dichotomy, and both sides can be heard on their new album,Wrought. Get there early for Brooklyn's terrific Grooms.

Tigers Jaw (acoustic), lowercase roses @ Le Poisson Rouge
Tigers Jaw made one of our favorite albums of last year with Charmer, and as their new acoustic album proves, those songs sound pretty great stripped down. That's how they'll be performing tonight. Opening is lowercases roses, aka Matt Scheuermann of The Sidekicks, who has a somber acoustic sound himself, somewhere between early Death Cab and The Microphones.

Pachanga Boys, Eclair Fifi, Samantha Urbani, Amnesia Scanner, The Black Madonna @ MoMA PS1 (Warm Up)
MoMA PS1's Warm Up series brings forward-thinking electronic music to the venue every Saturday afternoon for the whole summer. This is the first one of 2015, and the artist of the moment on this bill is Dev Hynes associate/former Friends singer Samantha Urbani, whose solo singles have been picking up buzz lately.

Del Close Marathon
The Upright Citizens Brigade's annual around-the-clock improv onslaught brings unscripted laughs to a multitude of venues this weekend.

Tombs, Black Anvil, Svart Crown, Vorde @ Saint Vitus
It's the second night of the three-night Stardust festival at Saint Vitus, which brings a handful of diverse and awesome metal bands together for the weekend.

Dope Body, Show Me The Body, Banned Books, Dadras @ Aviv
Dope Body just never stop making noise. Last year's Lifer is still fresh in our heads, and they already dropped the Big Black-ish single "Old Grey" off their upcoming album, Kunk. Maybe we'll hear some more new stuff tonight?

Oshun, Princess Nokia, Mal Devisa @ C'mon Everybody
College-age duo Oshun blend neo-soul, hip hop, and a strong political message on their debut mixtape, ASASE YAA, which sounds like the work of seasoned musicians. It's great stuff, and here's a chance to see it performed live.

Hammer and the Nails, MFP, Moron, NYC Headhunters @ Acheron
Boston's Hammer and the Nails make Oi!-inspired punk that's very catchy but not at all polished (listen here). Tonight's show is with two hardcore bands from their hometown, and local support from NYC Headhunters.

Fucked Up, Doomsquad @ WFMU Monty Hall
In addition to their full lengths, Fucked Up's ongoing 'Zodiac' single series ignores all boundaries of hardcore (for example, their new single has a 20+ minute song and elements of psychedelia). Their current tour is in support of that single series, and openers DOOMSQUAD are joining them on stage for some songs.

The World Is a Beautiful Place and I'm No Longer Afraid to Die, Spraynard, Makeshift Shelters @ Amityville Music Hall
Emo/chamber pop outfit The World Is a Beautiful Place and I'm No Longer Afraid to Die recently inked a deal with Epitaph and have a new album on the way, though we're still waiting on music from that. Spraynard have a new one coming on their new label home, Jade Tree, and the raw pop punk singles they've dropped so far sound great.

The Adolescents, The Weirdos @ Asbury Lanes
This is a pairing of two West Coast punk greats, Adolescents and The Weirdos. The bands' lineups aren't exactly the same as back then, but they both have a couple constant members and this show should still be pretty wild.

FarmBorough Festival @ Randall's Island
Randall's Island gets its first-ever country music festival, and today's lineup features Dwight Yoakam, Sturgill Simpson, and more.

Jonathan Rado (of Foxygen), The Lemon Twigs, Jackie Cohen, Los Cripis, Fungi Girls @ Baby's All Right
Foxygen's Jonathan Rado headlines tonight, but this is a quality show all-around with brotherly psych-pop band The Lemon Twigs and garagey Fungi Girls

Philip Glass & Tim Fain Benefit Concert for Nepal @ David Zwirner
Philip Glass will join violinist Tim Fain for a special benefit concert happening inside the Richard Serra: Equal's installation at David Zwirner which is made up of 40-ton steel cubes.

Marc Maron @ The Paramount
Having just made headlines interviewing President Obama, comedian, podcaster, TV star and enjoyable crank Marc Maron brings his current standup show to Long Island with a warm-up set from Mike Lawrence.

Justin Vivian Bond: Swallow My Pride @ Joe's Pub
A regular in NYC's drag scene for years, and once a member of the duo Kiki and Herb (with Kenny Mellman, who is now in The Julie Ruin), Justin Vivian Bond begins a 2-night stand at Joe's Pub tonight.

Allah-Las, The White Buffalo @ The Surf Lodge
If you're out in Montauk today, there are few bands better suited to play The Surf Lodge's free concert series than Los Angeles' Allah-Las who look and sound like the stepped out of The Endless Summer.

Matthew Dear, Daniel Bell, Ejeca, Heathered Pearls @ Verboten
Avant-pop artist, producer and interesting fellow, Matthew Dear spins records tonight.

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

Mission of Burma

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

Fucked Up, DOOMSQUAD @ The Wick
In addition to their full lengths, Fucked Up's ongoing 'Zodiac' single series ignores all boundaries of hardcore (for example, their new single has a 20+ minute song and elements of psychedelia). Their current tour is in support of that single series, and openers DOOMSQUAD are joining them on stage for some songs.

Great Lake Swimmers, Vandaveer @ Bowery Ballroom
Toronto's Great Lake Swimmers offered up another dose of their indie folk rock on this year's A Forest of Arms. They were in NYC early last month, and they return tonight.

The Adolescents, The Weirdos, All Torn Up, Electric Frankenstein @ Gramercy Theatre
This is a pairing of two West Coast punk greats, Adolescents and The Weirdos. The bands' lineups aren't exactly the same as back then, but they both have a couple constant members and this show should still be pretty wild.

Jessica Pratt, Ryley Walker @ Le Poisson Rouge
If you like late '60s / early '70s psychedelic folk, few 2015 albums capture that sound better than the ones by Jessica Pratt and Ryley Walker. Jessica has a hushed style, not unlike Vashti Bunyan or Sibylle Baier, while Ryley is jazzier and jammier, similar to The Pentangle.

Mykki Blanco (Dogfood MG), Psycho Egyptian, Violence, Amnesia Scanner @ Palisades
Mykki Blanco isn't rapping these days, but still finding ways to put on eccentric performances. Who knows what tonight's show will have in store.

Wolvserpent, Fell Voices, Anicon @ Saint Vitus
It's the first night of the three-night Stardust festival at Saint Vitus, which brings a handful of diverse and awesome metal bands together for the weekend.

Pride Week Rally w/ Ashanti @ Pier 26
Pride Week kicks into high gear with the annual Rally, this year featuring R&B star Ashanti.

'Paris is Burning' screening @ Prospect Park
To quote the event description: "BRIC's screening of the Sundance Grand Jury Prize-winning documentary Paris Is Burning will feature an introduction by director Jennie Livingston and by Junior LaBeija and Dr. Sol Williams Pendavis, both of whom are featured in the film. Before the screening, fellow Paris Is Burning cast members Grandfather Hector Xtravaganza and Jose Disla Xtravaganza present The Houses United Ball: Celebrating Brooklyn, which will feature members of the Houses of LaBeija, Ninja, Mizrahi, Khan, Infinity, Milan, Princess and Xtravaganza. Vjuan Allure will DJ before and during the ball." Part of Pride Week.

Pansy Division, Youth Quake, Bottoms @ Bowery Electric
Openly-gay pop punk band Pansy Division put a handful of records out on the venerable Lookout! Records in the '90s, and they keep that sound alive today (their most recent record was 2009's That's So Gay on Alternative Tentacles).

Action Bronson @ The Paramount (Long Island)
Action Bronson keeps the sound of '90s hip hop alive and well, most recently on this year's Mr. Wonderful. Tonight, the Flushing, Queens rapper plays just outside of his hometown.

Gogol Bordello, Flogging Molly, Mariachi El Bronx @ Stone Pony Summerstage (NJ)
Three bands who mix ethnic folk music and punk rock -- the Celtic Flogging Molly, the Gypsy-inspired Gogol Bordello and The Bronx's mariachi alter-ago, Mariachi El Bronx -- are currently on tour together. They aren't playing NYC, but will be nearby tonight.

Hivesmasher, Tiger Flowers, Meek is Murder, White Widows Pact, Hammerfight @ Black Bear Bar
Massachusetts tech-y grind act Hivesmasher are saying this is their last NY show. They'll be joined by some quality local hardcore bands, including Tiger Flowers, Meek Is Murder and more.

Tiga, Dan Wender, Blacky II @ Le Bain
Long-running Montreal house producer Tiga hits NYC to keep the party going all night at Le Bain (10 PM - 4 AM). He returns later this summer for Warm Up.

DMX, Rakim, The LOX, Shabba Ranks, Mase, Pete Rock & CL Smooth, Brand Nubian, Das Efx @ Radio City
Tonight Radio City hosts the "Masters of Ceremony" show which puts a number of hip hop legends on the same stage for one night.

The Soul Rebels #RebelJam ft. Rakim, Slick Rick, Styles P, Sheek Louch, Eric Krasno & surprise guests @ Blue Note
After the Robert Glasper shows, many of the performers at tonight's Radio City show are heading over to the Blue Note to join The Soul Rebels for a 12:30 AM jam sesh.

Del Close Marathon
The Upright Citizens Brigade's annual around-the-clock improv onslaught brings unscripted laughs to a multitude of venues this weekend. You can buy a $35 wristband at UCB Chelsea starting today at noon, and that gets you into every show (based on capacity).

FarmBorough Festival @ Randalls Island
Randall's Island gets its first-ever country music festival, and things kick off today with Dierks Bentley and more.

Destruction Unit @ Austin Psych Fest 2014 (more by Tim Griffin)
D-Unit

Destruction Unit, Vanity, Shredded Nerve, Live Drum Punishment @ Palisades
Thee Oh Sees frontman John Dwyer has said, "I believe Destruction Unit to be one of the most important underground bands in America," and if you've seen them live it's easy to see why. They balance punk and psychedelia to the point where you're not sure if you should zone out or flail your body around, and no one time seeing them is like the next.

Marc Maron, Mike Lawrence @ BAM
Having just made headlines interviewing President Obama, comedian, podcaster, TV star and enjoyable crank Marc Maron brings his current standup show to BAM with a warm-up set from Mike Lawrence. Sold out.

Diet Cig, Heathers, Gingerlys, Mercury Girls @ Cake Shop
Cake Shop liked the idea of the "Super Show" they did for their 10th anniversary, they're continuing them on a monthly basis, featuring bands they really love.

Starlight Girls, Def Girls, Fetzing, Melt @ Kings County Saloon
The shoegazy pop of Starlight Girls is the main attraction, but openers Melt make superior, '90s style indie rock (and have Cassie Ramone on bass).

Ty Segall, William Tyler @ Mercury Lounge
Ty plays his first of two sold-out solo acoustic shows tonight with this early show at Mercury Lounge...

Ty Segall, The Mystery Lights, Cory Hanson @ Rough Trade
...before wrapping things up at Rough Trade with Brooklyn psych band The Mystery Lights and WAND frontman Cory Hanson. If you didn't score tickets and are in the area, it might be worth swinging by to see if they have any last-minute tickets available.

Desaparecidos, Bandroidz @ Rough Trade
Before Ty: Conor Oberst put out his best album in ten years with the new Desaparecidos album. Unlike his recent folk and country affairs, this is a real-deal punk album, so it should be a blast to hear in a tightly-packed small venue like this one.

Ava Luna, Charly Bliss, Evvy @ New York Hall of Science
How often do you get to see a show at a science museum? Tonight's features the funky Ava Luna, and Charly Bliss' riffy pop. Also: free beer.

Horse Meat Disco, House of Stank, DJ Spun, Mystic Bill @ Output
This London-based four-man DJ collective are known for finding pearls in bins of forgotten disco 12", having released a series of acclaimed compilations. Their real expertise comes into play at their DJ gigs, though. Just trust their taste...and the beat.

Roger Sellers @ Elvis Guesthouse
Austin musician Roger Sellers makes intricately layered music, part aural soundscapes a la Tangerine Dream, part savvy pop.

Mission of Burma, Megafauna @ The Bell House
One of the most influential American indie/punk bands of the '80s (Signals, Calls, and Marches and Vs. are stone-cold classics), the band continue their mission (sorry) today with strident vigor. They're still great.

Jack Oblivian, The Sheiks, Gozer @ The Grand Victory
Garage punk legend Jack Oblivian hits town with fellow Memphis band The Sheiks for what should be a real good time.

Richard Thompson @ Town Hall
Modern folk icon and guitar great Richard Thompson just released his Jeff Tweedy-produced new album, Still, and celebrates tonight.

James Chance, Will Epstein, Parlor Walls, Eve Essex @ Trans-Pecos
No wave vet and general cool dude James Chance is one of Trans-Pecos' new curators, but tonight he headlines this Northern Spy curated show.

Robert Glasper @ Blue Note
As part of the Blue Note Jazz Festival, jazz/hip hop pianist Robert Glasper is doing four nights at the Blue Note (6/24-27) with 8:30 and 10 PM sets. His albums are loaded with guests like Common, Jill Scott, Brandy, Snoop Dogg, Lupe Fiasco, Norah Jones, Bilal and more.

While Screech is in prison,  Saved by the Bell's Mr Belding (aka actor Dennis Haskins) will be partying at this '90s nostalgia party.

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

Desaparecidos @ Webster Hall, 2013 (more by Tracy Alison)
Desaparecidos

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

Desaparecidos, The So So Glos @ Shea Stadium
Conor Oberst put out his best album in ten years with the new Desaparecidos album. Unlike his recent folk and country affairs, this is a real-deal punk album, so where better to celebrate than a DIY punk venue? Opening is The So So Glos, who appear on the new Desa album and also often call Shea home.

Samantha Urbani @ Baby's All Right
Onetime Friends frontperson Samantha Urbani is striking out on her own, having released a couple promising solo tracks recently. Tonight makes the debut of her new live band. It's a free show with RSVP.

Parlor Walls, Night Powers, Courtship Ritual, Decorum @ Cake Shop
It's a night of goth-tinged music at Cake Shop with the sultry Courtship Ritual, the double bass attack of Decorum and more.

Andrew Bird, Roger Sellers @ Le Poisson Rouge
Singer, songwriter, master whistler, expert loop-pedal user, Andrew Bird's style is one-of-a-kind and it's always a treat to see him work his magic live -- especially in a small venue like LPR.

Al B. Sure @ MetroTech Commons
New Jack Swing crooner Al B Sure plays this free noontime show today as part of the 2015 BAM R&B Fest.

Daniel Higgs' FOUNTAINSUN, Charlie Looker, Ezekiel Healy @ C&B Luncheonette
FOUNTAINSUN is Daniel Higgs (Lungfish) and Fumie Ishii and make folk that is sometimes lovely, sometimes droney and dissonant. Catch them tonight at this outtdoor show which happens at dusk (6:30 PM)  in the backyard of this Ridgewood diner. Should be a lovely evening

Lucinda Williams, Jason Walker @ Prospect Park Bandshell
Acclaimed roots singer-songwriter Lucinda Williams self-released last year's terrific double album, Down Where The Spirit Meets The Bone,  which should sound pretty nice amongst the greenery of Prospect Park. This is a free Celebrate Brooklyn! show, 7:30 PM.

The Lox @ Crotona Park
The free hip hop shows in this year's SummerStage season continue tonight with veteran NYC group The LOX, who have been increasingly active lately, in the studio and live.

RJD2, Michna, Lamin Fofana @ Output
Long-running underground hip hop producer RJD2 keeps his shows old school, flipping vinyl and recording drum machine and keyboard loops live. And he can still move crowds as good as any number of younger DJs.

Royal Thunder, Wild Throne, The Golden Grass @ Saint Vitus
Two bands that fall between metal and just heavy rock join forces for this show. There's the '70s hard rock-leaning Royal Thunder, and the proggy post-hardcore of Wild Throne.

Warthog, Tenement, Big Zit, Ivy, Nancy @ Acheron
Tenement's new double album, Predatory Highlights (on Don Giovanni), is one of 2015's most celebrated underground punk albums. Tonight the band is in NYC with their tourmates Big Zit and three of the best local punk bands.

The Deslondes, Feral Foster, Twain @ Mercury Lounge
The Deslondes make the kind of country you may have heard in a Southern bar about 60 years ago. It's good stuff, and a refreshing change from the stuff you hear on the radio.

Robert Glasper Trio @ Blue Note Jazz Club
As part of the Blue Note Jazz Festival, jazz/hip hop pianist Robert Glasper is doing four nights at the Blue Note (6/24-27). His albums are loaded with guests like Common, Jill Scott, Brandy, Snoop Dogg, Lupe Fiasco, Norah Jones, Bilal and more.

David Crosby @ Town Hall
In addition to his time in the Byrds and Crosby Stills Nash & Young, David Crosby has had an intermittent and impressive solo career. His most recent album was last year's Croz, his first solo record in 21 years.

Girl Band, Guerilla Toss, Monograms
It would be nice to see Ireland's Girl Band in an all-ages DIY-venue where their frenzied, near-metal squawk might inspire riots, it's worth catching them in the slightly more staid confines of Rough Trade as well. New DFA signees and fellow rabble-rousers Guerilla Toss are also on the bill.

Ty Segall, Christian Peslak, Cory Hanson @ The Bell House
Ty Segall takes NYC with only his acoustic guitar, playing four sold-out shows this week. Will people still try to crowd surf? Tonight's should be good, with an opening set from WAND frontman Cory Hanson.

Marc Maron, Mike Lawrence @ The Capitol Threatre
Having just made headlines interviewing President Obama, comedian, podcaster, TV star and enjoyable crank Marc Maron brings his current standup show to The Cap.

PAT / Lady Miss Kier, Aaron Clark, Amber Valentine @ Union Pool
It's a special Pride edition of JD Samson's monthly party 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. Deee-Lite's Lady Miss Kier is among tonight's guest DJs.

Seoul @ SolarOne (Rooftop Films)
Montreal trio Seoul released their debut album, I Become a Shade, last week. If you haven't checked it out, it's lush synthpop that's sort of a modern update of the chilled-out, sophisti-pop sounds of '80s acts like The Dream Academy, China Crisis or Blue Nile. Tonight's a free Rooftop Films show, and they play before a screening of Frances Ha.

Sasheer Zamata, Jo Firestone, Amber Nelson, Anna Drezen, Awkwafina @ Union Hall
A host of funny folk will read trashy teen fiction to you at this event that also features musical guest Awkwafina.

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

Ty Segall

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

Ty Segall, King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard, Christian Peslak, @ Baby's All Right
Ty Segall takes NYC with only his acoustic guitar, playing four sold-out shows this week. Will people still try to crowd surf? Tonight's should be good, with an acoustic set from King Gizzard who...

King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard @ Baby's All Right
...will then play a late-night electric set which has promised "special guests." If you don't have to wake up early, it's worth catching them here.

Rhett Miller, Nicole Atkins @ City Winery
Whether with Old 97's, his solo band, or just an acoustic guitar, Rhett Miller has the songs, the humor and the magnetic stage presence to charm.

Seoul, Heathers, Very Fresh @ Elvis Guesthouse
Montreal trio Seoul released their debut album, I Become a Shade, last week. If you haven't checked it out, it's lush synthpop that's sort of a modern update of the chilled-out, sophisti-pop sounds of '80s acts like The Dream Academy, China Crisis or Blue Nile. They celebrate the LP's release tonight.

Mail The Horse, Rivergazer @ Knitting Factory
Mail the Horse released their new album, Planet Gates, this week, a record that's embued with an early '70s rock n' roll spirit, be it the twangy leanings of the Stones and the Kinks during that time, or the gritty street life of Lou Reed. Tonight's the release show.

Leon Bridges @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Looking and sounding like he was transported straight from 1961, Leon Bridges has made a helluva "classic" R&B style record with Coming Home, his debut album.

BBQ (Mark Sultan), The Mystery Lights @ Union Pool
Having reverted to his BBQ moniker, Mark Sultan is a one man garage band that's always impressive to watch. Few solo performers could follow the wild fury that is The Mystery Lights, but BBQ is one of them.

John Fogerty @ Radio City Music Hall
1969 was a pretty great year for John Fogerty, whose band Creedence Clearwater Revival put out not one, not two, but three now-classic albums in that same year (Bayou County, Green River and Willy and the Poor Boys). He'll be celebrating the material from those albums (as well as other favorites from throughout his career) tonight.

Pete Rock, Smoke DZA, Slum Village, Termanology,, Camp Lo, Sean Price, Das Efx, Large Professor, Royal Flush @ Brooklyn Bowl
Hip hop legend Pete Rock celebrates his new Petestrumentals 2 album at this show, and there's a pretty amazing group of guests scheduled to appear, from fellow vet Sean Price to relative newcomer Smoke DZA and plenty more.

Darkest Hour, Dead to Fall, Beyond Dishonor, Oath @ Gramercy Theatre
DC's Darkest Hour were one of the many bands to come of the metalcore/melodeath crossover of the late '90s/early '00s, and this year they're celebrating the 10th anniversary of their 2005 breakthrough record, Undoing Ruin, by playing it in full on tour. Their '00s-era Victory labelmates Dead to Fall (who broke up in 2008) are also back together to open.

Big Eyes, Vacation, Pretty Pretty, Flykills @ Shea Stadium
If you're into punk with great hooks but not at the expense of the genre's raw power, Big Eyes and Vacation are two of the better newer bands doing that sort of thing. This should be a good show.

Robert Glasper Trio @ Blue Note Jazz Club
As part of the Blue Note Jazz Festival, jazz/hip hop pianist Robert Glasper is doing four nights at the Blue Note (6/24-27). His albums are loaded with guests like Common, Jill Scott, Brandy, Snoop Dogg, Lupe Fiasco, Norah Jones, Bilal and more.

Loudon Wainwright III @ SubCulture
Loudon wraps up a four-week residency where he's performing Surviving Twin, a posthumous collaboration in which he combines and connects some of his best songs with the writing of his late father Loudon Wainwright Jr.

The Kooks, Atlas Genius, Joywave @ Central Park Summerstage
Having racked up a string of guitar pop hits in the UK, Brighton's The Kooks headline Summerstage tonight.

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

Blonde Redhead

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

Blonde Redhead, Caveman, Talk in Tongues @ Webster Hall
Indie vets Blonde Redhead have made dream pop, noise rock, electronic pop, and more in their 20+ year career, and they continue to be great, both in the studio and on stage. Tonight's their second of two hometown NYC shows on their current tour.

No Joy, EZTV, Advaeta @ Baby's All Right
No Joy's new album, More Faithful, is a great example of the possibilities still open within the shoegaze genre, making for an extremely satisfying listen. Live, they still turn things up to tinnitus-levels. Bring earplugs to this record release show.

Leon Bridges @ Bowery Ballroom
Looking and sounding like he was transported straight from 1961, Leon Bridges has made a helluva "classic" R&B style record with Coming Home, his debut album.

Creepoid, Ecstatic Vision @ Mercury Lounge
This is a great double bill of two Philly bands with brand new albums: shoegazers Creepoid (Collect Records) and heavy psych rockers Ecstatic Vision (Relapse).

Azealia Banks @ The Westway
After a long delay, Azealia Banks finally put out her debut album last year and it was well worth the wait. Tonight she plays this late show at The Westway, which is part of their weekly Westgay party and also an unofficial Pride Week event.

Highs, Ayer, Chaos Chaos, Frances Rose, Summer Heart @ Pianos
Göteborg, Sweden's David Alexander has been releasing records as Summer Heart since 2009 and he's got an airy, melodic style that isn't too far away from fellow Swedes The Radio Department or The Legends.

Olga Bell @ South Street Seaport (Pier 15)
CANCELED DUE TO THUNDERSTORMS: Dirty Projectors member and very accomplished solo artist Olga Bell presents her Russian song cycle, Krai, once again in NYC tonight. This show's part of the free River to River festival.

Toys That Kill, Shellshag, Benny the Jet Rodriguez, Nato Cole & the Blue Diamond Band, Hatrabbits @ Acheron
Toys That Kill is one of the many projects of melodic punk great Todd Congelliere (who's also in Underground Railroad to Candyland, who have a new album this year), and they're currently, and Todd also sometimes plays in Benny the Jet Rodriguez who TTK are currently touring with. Locals Shellshag are always worth catching too.

Everclear, Toadies, Fuel, American Hi-Fi @ Irving Plaza
Toadies have been up to some cool stuff lately, and while we can't exactly say the same about the rest of the lineup, at least this isn't the worst '90s nostalgia show of the year.

Colleen, Katya Mihailova @ Subculture
French multi-instrumentalist Cecile Schott, aka Colleen, released the excellent art pop album, Captain of None, this year on Thrill Jockey. Tonight she brings her first US tour in eight years to NYC.

C. Spencer Yeh (SOLO VOICE I-X) @ Artists Space Books & Talks
Burning Star Core's C. Spencer Yeh celebrates the recent release of Solo Voice I - X, hiss first LP devoted entirely to the voice. This is a free show

Jim Adkins (of Jimmy Eat World), Small Time @ The Space
While Jimmy Eat World's later stuff hasn't been so hot, there's no denying they've got a few essential records of '90s/early '00s emo. Frontman Jim Adkins is currently on a solo tour, and it doesn't hit NYC but if you have a car this show's not too far.

Ask Me Another w/ Patrick Stewart @ The Bell House
Another in NPR's "Ask Me Another" live quiz show tapings, tonight features the man you may know as Jean-Luc Picard, Professor X or Time Warner Cable's worst enemy, Patrick Stewart.

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

Shonen Knife @ The Wick

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

Soul Asylum, Meat Puppets @ Bowery Ballroom
Usually, the only place to see Soul Asylum and Meat Puppets together was probably on that one episode of MTV's Alternative Nation from 1993 where both "Runaway Train" and "Backwater" were both played. But the two bands bands are on tour together, and this is their first of two NYC shows.

Shonen Knife, CJ Ramone @ Le Poisson Rouge
Seeing how Shonen Knife's brand of poppy punk stems directly from The Ramones, this tour with CJ Ramone should make for a fun double-bill.

The Front Bottoms, GDP, Youngman Grand @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
We're still waiting on The Front Bottoms' followup to 2013's great Talon of the Hawk, but they recently released the new "West Virginia" single which had all of their usual elements intact (nasally vocals, super specific lyrics, part folk, part pop punk). These guys are getting pretty big -- tonight's show is small for them at this point, and unsurprisingly sold out.

Om, Blazer Sound System @ Saint Vitus
Om is the collaborative project of two very busy musicians, Al Cisnero (Sleep) and Emil Amos (Grails, Holy Sons), and together they make out-there psychedelic music. Tonight's their second of two shows at Saint Vitus.

Parquet Courts, Naomi Punk, PC Worship @ Palisades
Olympia, WA trio Naomi Punk draw from a variety of noisy/aggressive ancestors without really sounding like them. 2014's Television Man is a warped, sneery, garagey blast. Oh, and just today Parquet Courts were added to the bill!

Aye Nako, Katherine, Street Eaters @ Silent Barn
Aye Nako have a new EP on the way via Don Giovanni, and the first single is a bit harsher than 2013's poppy Unleash Yourself. Maybe we'll hear more new stuff tonight.

Jim Adkins (of Jimmy Eat World)
While Jimmy Eat World's later stuff hasn't been so hot, there's no denying they've got a few essential records of '90s/early '00s emo. Frontman Jim Adkins is currently on a solo tour, and it doesn't hit NYC but if you have a car this show's not too far. Tomorrow he's in Hamden, CT.

J. Cole, Bas, Cozz, Omen @ Irving Plaza
J. Cole has a huge MSG show coming up, but if you want to see him somewhere more intimate and for way less money, tonight he plays a smaller $1 show at Irving Plaza.

Night Train w/ Wyatt Cenac @ Littlefield
All aboard Wyatt Cenac's weekly comedy cavalcade, this week with guests Jared Logan, Katina Corrao, Jordan Temple, Casey James Salengo, and more.

Tony Bennett & Lady Gaga @ Radio City
Veteran crooner Tony Bennett and outsized personality Lady Gaga collaborated on duets album Cheek to Cheek which debuted at #1 and won a Grammy. Tonight they'll play live, their third of four Radio City shows.

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

Beirut at 50 Kent

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

Beirut @ Bowery Ballroom
Beirut's new album, No No No, isn't out till September but those who managed to get tickets will get an early preview in intimate confines.

Make Music NY
Make Music NY is back for an ninth year, celebrating the spirit of live music all over NYC on Sunday, June 21. In addition to many acts playing on street-corners, parks and other public locations, as usual, there are a number of special events, all of which are free: mass concerts with ukuleles and theremins, buildings used as percussion instruments, concerts in graveyards and lots more.

Punk Island @ Staten Island Pier 1
Part of MMNY, this free festival features 100 punk bands from all over the world, playing across seven stages on a pier in Staten Island.

D'Angelo and The Vanguard, Gary Clark Jr. @ Forest Hills Stadium
Neo-soul great D'Angelo may take a very long time releasing albums, but it's always worth the wait because the three that he has are masterpieces. That includes 2014's Black Messiah.

Bang On A Can Marathon @ The Winter Garden at Brookfield Place
Ten hours of continuous, boundary-stretching music, including brass band covers of Pixies songs, So Percussion performing with Nels Cline and Bobby Previte and the US premiere of the Glenn Branca Ensemble's "Ascension Three." Noon - 10 PM, free, and you can also watch it online.

Clearwater Festival @ Croton Point Park (Hudson, NY)
One of the most chill, pleasant festival experiences to be had, Clearwater takes place along the Hudson River in Croton-on-Hudson, NY. Today's lineup includes The Felice Brothers, Guster, Ani DiFranco, Bettye LaVette, The Blind Boys of Alabama, and more.

Christopher Owens, EZTV, Overlake @ Mercury Lounge
The onetime Girls frontman dropped new album Chrissybaby Forever on us out of the blue and was a nice return to the kind of back-to-basics guitar pop Owens is really good at. Openers for this show are good too: EZTV make early-'80s style janglepop and Overlake specialize is melodic, shoegazy fuzz.

RVIVR, War on Women, Arm Candy, Rips @ Palisades
Two socially/politically conscious punk bands, RVIVR and War On Women, team up for what's sure to be a ripping show. Good local support too.

Tim Kinsella, Jimmy Whispers, High Life
Emo and experimental rock veteran Tim Kinsella has a lot planned for this year, as he's Joyful Noise's Artist In Residence. Maybe that means we'll hear some new music tonight, and hopefully some stuff from his other bands too (Joan of Arc, Cap'n Jazz, Owls, etc).

Om @ Saint Vitus
Om is the collaborative project of two very busy musicians, Al Cisnero (Sleep) and Emil Amos (Grails, Holy Sons), and together they make out-there psychedelic music. Tonight's their first of two shows at Saint Vitus.

Zhe Zhe, Beau, Ronald Paris, Frankie Cosmos, DJ Raws @ Baby's All Right
This is a day show to support the Girl Props kickstarter and features solo sets from Frankie Cosmos and Porches' Ronald Paris, among others. Starts at noon.

Blood Orange, Flat White (DJ Set) @ MoMA
Part of the Yoko Ono exhibit at MoMA, this is a sunrise 50th anniversary celebration of her Morning Piece (1964) to George Maciunas. Blood Orange will perform new music at this show. It starts at 5:25 AM, and is over by  8 AM, so chances are it's already over by the time you read this. Also it's sold out.

Mephiskapheles, Voodoo Glow Skulls, Slow Children @ Rocks Off Cruise
Ska on a boat? There's probably worse ways to spend a Sunday. And hey remember, if you drop anything overboard, don't pick it up, pick it up, pick it up!

The Game's The Documentary 10th anniversary show that would have happened at BB King's tonight has been cancelled. Refunds available.

It's the first day of Summer, and it's also Father's Day, so don't forget to call, visit or remember your dad!
