A Winged Victory for the Sullen
AWVFTS

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

A Winged Victory For the Sullen @ Joe's Pub (early and late)
A Winged Victory for the Sullen, the collaborative ambient duo of Stars of the Lid's Adam Wiltzie and pianist/composer Dustin O'Halloran, has been in the NYC-area for performances of their new Atomos piece at Montclair State University. Performances on 3/20, 3/21, 3/22 & 3/23 still remain, but before they pick back up, they'll take a quick break and do two club shows in NYC at Joe's Pub tonight (7:30 PM & 9:30 PM).

Splashh, Such Hounds, Team Me @ Glasslands
Fresh (or not so fresh) from SXSW, UK band Splashh are here to beam bright, shoegazy vibes. Their second LP is in the can, so expect new tunes tonight.

PINS, Courtship Ritual, Glass Towers @ Pianos
Manchester four-piece PINS are direct descendants of Manc rabble-rousers The Fall (in sneery attitude), with a scratchy dose of C-86 style pop hooks. The band's debut album came out earlier this month and this is their second of three NYC shows this week.

Liam Finn @ Union Pool
On his forthcoming album, The Nihilist, Finn played 67 instruments! That actually sounds about right, as anyone who's seen his live shows knows the dude can play anything. And often does! This is the third of his March "Murmuration" residencies.

Da Mafia 6ix, Twisted Insane, Whitney Peyton, Sozay, Alan Winkle, Zeyi, Buckwheat Groats @ The Studio at Webster Hall
While Juicy J (who recently played Irving Plaza) is no longer in Three 6 Mafia, the members continue without him (and without Lord Infamous [RIP]) as Da Mafia 6ix.

Northless, Anicon, Belus, Pharaoh @ Saint Vitus
Badass Milwaukee sludge combo Northless will bring their clanking, creaking horror show to Saint Vitus tonight, and they'll be joined by an impressive cast of locals, including Anicon, Belus (who will have copies of their recent EP for sale), and recent A389 signees Pharaoh (the NJ sludge band, not the Philly power metal band).

Roseanne Cash
Singing/songwriting veteran Roseanne Cash (daughter of Johnny) has been celebrating the release of her 13th studio album, The River & the Thread, this year, which came out this past January and follows 2009's The List. Tonight she and her band brings their current tour to NYC.

The Allman Brothers Band @ Beacon Theatre
Pioneers of jam bands, and progenitors of blues and southern rock, The Allman Brothers continue their multi-night run at Beacon Theatre tonight.

The Strypes @ Bowery Ballroom
Irish sensations The Strypes have been playing together for five years but are still in their teens -- and sound like mod '60s soul. Given that description you might not be surprised to learn Paul Weller, Roger Daltrey, Jeff Beck and Noel Gallagher are all fans.

Drenge / PINS
Drenge
PINS

With 76% (or something) of the music world still hungover from SXSW, there's hardly anything of note going on in NYC tonight. You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are a few highlights...

Skepta, Drenge, PINS, Ian Prowse, Clubs and Spades, The Hot Soles @ Knitting Factory
The American branch of music industry confab Liverpool Sound City puts on a showcase tonight with grungy UK duo Drenge, Manchester punks PINS, grime vet Skepta, and Sheffield, UK hip hop act Clubs and Spades and more.

Night Train w/ Wyatt Cenac @ Littlefield
Wyatt Cenac continues his weekly Night Train comedy show tonight with guests Adam Newman, Raj Sivaraman, and more.

Maybe try something new, like heading to Park Slope performance space Barbes, which hosts Brain Cloud (7 PM) and Chica Libre (9:30 PM) every Monday.

It is also, of course, St. Patrick's Day, which tends to be amateur hour for alcohol consumption. Watch where you step.

Dott, Rad Dreams, Clairaudience @ Cake Shop
Irish band Dott make harmony-laden, early-'60s-meets-early-'90s indie rock. The band's debut album came out last year via Graveface and the band are here tonight after a long week at SXSW. Local band Rad Dreams do the '90s-style indie pretty well, too.

Vampillia, Jungles From Red Bacteria Vacuum, Zarigani$, Happy, Starmarie
Boredoms-related Japanese experimental rockers Vampillia played about a zillion NYC shows before SXSW, and now that they're back our way from Austin, here's yet another one. This one's part of the "Japan Nite" tour and also includes Jungles From Red Bacteria Vacuum, Zarigani$, Happy, & Starmarie.

The Internet, Phony PPL @ SOB's

Young Galaxy in Chicago in 2011 (more by Chris Hershman)
Young Galaxy

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

Young Galaxy, American Royalty, Bowmont, Late Guest (at the Party) @ Brooklyn Night Bazaar
Tonight's BKNB show is headlined by Montreal's Young Galaxy who make sleek, anthemic synthop, and the rest of the bill follows suit with beat-heavy Brooklyn bands. Admission is free, though the drinks, food, mini-golf, ping pong and crafts are not.

The Damnwells, Joshua Fletcher @ Baby's All Right
Based in Brooklyn, The Damwells favor the kind of shambolic, twangy rock you usually get in the midwest. Having been around since 2000, the band are set to release their 5th album later this year.

Jack Name, Xander Duell @ Death By Audio
When not touring with White Fence, Jack Name's solo material is a little more out there -- like past the stratosphere. His new album on Ty Segall's imprint sprinkles glitter on garage psych.

Justin Townes Earle @ City Winery
Son of Steve Earle, the apples don't fall too far from the tree with JTE's country-influenced -- but not beholden to -- style.

Com Truise, Phantoms @ Bowery Ballroom
The synthy Com Truise has been on tour since early February, and tonight he returns to NYC to conclude the tour at Bowery Ballroom.

DJ Rashad, Ikonika, Doctor Jeep @ Cameo Gallery
Two Hyperdub producers, DJ Rashad and Ikonika, team up to get the dancefloors moving all night at this late show (doors at midnight) at Cameo.

Kaytranada, Sango, STWO, DKDS @ 88 Palace
Montreal's dancey Kaytranada, who has had a release on Brodinski's label and has remixed AlunaGeorge, Disclosure and others, comes to NYC tonight on his way home from SXSW.

The Allman Brothers Band @ Beacon Theatre
Pioneers of jam bands, and progenitors of blues and southern rock, The Allman Brothers continue their multi-night run at Beacon Theatre tonight.

Houndmouth, Eastern Midwestern @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
The folk-rockin' Houndmouth wrap up off their two-night NYC run tonight.

Pink Floyd Laser Spectacular @ The Space at Westbury
Paramount's Pink Floyd Laser Spectacular, which "[presents] the music of Pink Floyd, as you have never seen it before," returns to the NYC-area for its second of two nights. There's an early showing (7:30 PM) and a late one (10:30 PM).

Most of BrooklynVegan is in Austin this week for SXSW. Follow our exploits via @BVSXSW on Twitter. If you're in Austin, come say hi at our final day party at Red 7.

California X at DbA in 2013 (more by Vladislav Grach)
Cali X

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

California X, Sleepies, LVL UP, Washer @ Shea Stadium
This is a great bill all around, with Amherst's sludgy California X, Brooklyn's punky Sleepies, the Built to Spill-esque indie rock of LVL UP, and lo-fi rockers Washer.

Alan Licht & Brian Chase, Mary Halvorson & Joe Morris @ Issue Project Room
Alan Licht is the guitarist in Lee Ranaldo and the Dust, and Brian Chase is the drummer of Yeah Yeah Yeahs, but when they're not playing with their main projects, they also make experimental music together. Their collaborations have resulted in the debut album, We Thought We Could Do Anything, which they celebrate at IPR tonight.

Guards, The Dig, Modern Rivals, Grassfight @ Brooklyn Night Bazaar
Guards, whose frontman Richie Follin is the brother of Cults singer Madeline (and a former member of that band), make indie pop as accessible as Richie's sister's band, but more driving and anthemic. Like all BK Bazaar shows, entry is free tonight, and there's also not-free food, drinks, shopping, and games.

Chris Brokaw, Insect Factory, Dan Friel, Wavepool, 10000 Idiots @ Death By Audio
Chris Brokaw (of Come and Codeine), just opened the two Bob Mould shows in NYC, and now he plays two headlining solo shows here. This is the second, and sees Chris collaborating with guitar experimenter Insect Factory.

DRI, Mucky Pup, Sh*tkill, Morder, Apathy @ The Studio at Webster Hall
Crossover thrash vets DRI and Mucky Pup are no strangers to playing shows together, and they'll do so again tonight, which was rescheduled from November.

Justin Vivian Bond @ 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 continues his show, The Drift, at Joe's Pub tonight. The show "creates a new, free associative, collage of spoken word and song inspired by the story of Karen Stone, a retired actress who drifts from one space to another -either in her mind, in couture or in bed." He does it again on 3/27, 3/28, 4/10 & 4/11.

Nicky Mao, Rose Kallal, YOU., New Modern Nail @ Trans-Pecos
Dig into the experimental sounds of Nicky Mao, Rose Kallal, YOU. and more at Trans Pecos tonight.

Porches at Baby's All Right in January (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Porches

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

Porches, Downies, Little Big League @ Shea Stadium
There's never a lack of Porches shows in NYC, but tonight they play their last one here for at least a few weeks, because they'll be beginning their tour tomorrow. Making it an even better show, Philly's mathy, punky indie rockers Little Big League are on the bill too.

Bang on a Can All-Stars, Richard Reed Parry, Alvin Lucier, Daniel Wohl @ Merkin Concert Hall
Perhaps the biggest event at the Ecstatic Music Festival, the annual Bang on a Can All-Stars People's Commissioning Fund Concert will give the world premieres of works by three PCF-commissioned composers: Alvin Lucier, Arcade Fire's Richard Reed Parry and Daniel Wohl.

John Hodgman @ Union Hall
You may know John Hodgman as a Daily Show correspondent, but he's also got tons of his own material. Tonight's another of his Secret Society shows at Union Hall.

Ice Balloons, Kyp Malone, Rob Bryn @ Death By Audio
When Kyp Malone makes music outside of TV on the Radio, it tends to lean towards the experimental side of things -- like with Ice Balloons his avant garde psych-noise band with Rob Bryn of Wild Yaks. Both Malone and Bryn will do solo sets as well.

Julio Bashmore, Huxley @ Output
Julio Bashmore, who you may know best for the production he's done for Jessie Ware, also makes thumping house beats in his own time, and he'll finally be getting his debut solo LP out this summer. Meanwhile, catch the UK producer in NYC tonight.

Chris Brokaw, DJ Jonathan Toubin, special guest Bill O'Reilly Orgasm @ Union Pool
Chris Brokaw (of Come and Codeine), just opened the two Bob Mould shows in NYC, and now he plays two headlining solo shows here. This is the first, and features a special guest billed as Bill O'Reilly Orgasm.

Justin Vivian Bond @ 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 kicks off his new show, The Drift, at Joe's Pub tonight. The show "creates a new, free associative, collage of spoken word and song inspired by the story of Karen Stone, a retired actress who drifts from one space to another -either in her mind, in couture or in bed." He does it again on 3/14, 3/27, 3/28, 4/10 & 4/11.

Ellie Goulding @ The Theater @ MSG
Ellie Goulding wraps up her sold-out two-night stand at the Theater at MSG tonight.

Elvis Costello & The Roots at Brooklyn Bowl in 2013 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Elvis Costello

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

Elvis Costello, The Roots @ The Capitol Theatre
Power pop vet Elvis Costello and alt-rap band The Roots teamed up last year for the collaborative album, Wise Up Ghost. They've still only played a very select amount of shows together, like their September release show at Brooklyn Bowl, and tonight is their first NYC-area appearance since that show.

Juicy J, Travis Scott, Project Pat @ Irving Plaza
Once a member of the Three 6 Mafia, Juicy J is officially an elder statesman of trap rap, but doesn't act like one. He stays trippy, collaborates with younger guys like A$AP Rocky and Big Sean, and can be just as stupid fun. Joining him tonight is Kanye collaborator Travis Scott and Project Pat, Juicy J's older brother and frequent collaborator.

Imperial Topaz, Hexbreaker, Quintet, Jerry Paper, Seth Graham @ Death By Audio
NYC ambient pop duo Imperial Topaz have been releasing singles and playing local shows for about a year now, and tonight they celebrate the release of their debut album, Full of Grace, at this release show.

Teen Commandments, House of Blondes, New Myths, Sandy @ Glasslands
Brooklyn trio New Myths make spectral synth-rock and are currently finishing up work on their new album but you can stream their 2012 EP below. Tonight they play with the similarly minded House of Blondes.

Jangula, Life Size Maps, Darlings, Teen Girl Scientist Monthly, Turnip King @ Pianos
It's the second week of Life Size Maps' residency at Pianos and they've put together a nice line-up of indie rock locals to play alongside them.

Champagne Jerry, Hand Job Academy, Ratchet By Nature @ Union Pool
Ad Rock collaborator Champagne Jerry continued his monthly Joe's Pub appearances last week (3/7), and tonight he plays another NYC show at Union Pool.

Lorde, Lo-Fang @ Roseland Ballroom
The popular Lorde wraps up her sold-out three-night run at the soon-to-close Roseland Ballroom with support from the 4AD-signed Lo-Fang.

Ellie Goulding, Conway @ The Theater @ MSG
Not unlike Lorde, Ellie Goulding's pop songs are somewhat "alternative"-minded. She begins her two-night stand at the Theater at MSG tonight.

Big Terrific @ Cameo
Max Silvestri hosts the free weekly comedy show in the back of Williamsburg's Lovin' Cup. No word yet on tonight's lineup but you can check Max's Twitter.

Not the busiest night, partially because everyone's in or heading to Austin for SXSW. Including most of BrooklynVegan. Follow our exploits via @BVSXSW on Twitter. If you're in Austin, come say hi at one of our many events (most of which are free).

Cat Power at Station to Station in 2013 (more by Lukas Hodge)
Cat Power

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

Cat Power @ Music Hall of Williamsburg (early and late)
The solo shows Chan Marshall has been doing bring her back to the early days of Cat Power when it was just Chan on stage by herself (she does still include new stuff in the setlists though). Tonight she returns to NYC to do the solo thing here again with two shows (6 PM & 9:30 PM) at MHOW.

Iggy Pop, New Order, Patti Smith, Phillip Glass @ Carnegie Hall
It's the annual Tibet House benefit with a typically amazing line-up.

Gary Higgins @ Baby's All Right
Back in 1973, Gary Higgins released the psychedelic folk masterpiece, Red Hash, a record totally ahead of its time that gained the recognition it deserves years later. He remains active, and tonight he performs that record in full at Baby's All Right.

Liam Finn, Shorts @ Union Pool
On his forthcoming album, The Nihilist, Finn played 67 instruments, which actually sounds about right. Anyone who's seen his live shows knows the dude can play anything. And often does! This is the second of his March "Murmuration" residencies.

Sleepers Work, Joel Ford, SHRAF @ Bossa Nova Civic Club
Sleepers Work is the alias of Brooklyn-based multi-instrumentalist William Flynn who has toured with St. Vincent, and others. No Turn Before The Shoreline is the first full length release from Sleepers Work which shows off his moody, ambient R&B.  Tonight's the record release party for the album. Free.

Xenia Rubinos @ The Mercury Lounge
The eccentric Xenia Rubinos brings her one-of-a-kind show to Mercury Lounge tonight.

Pete Donnelly of The Figgs, Brett Newski, Miles Wick @ Cake Shop
Steeped in the tradition of The Replacements, Cheap Trick and Elvis Costello, The Figgs have been creating great power pop for two decades now, with no signs of stopping any time soon. Tonight frontman Pete Donnelly plays solo.

Sin Fang @ Chez Andre at The Standard Hotel
He's dropped the "Bous" from his moniker but Seabear frontman Sindri Már Sigfússon continues to make dreamy electronics-heavy folk, most recently on 2013's Flowers. This is a free show but you need to RSVP to aohayon@standardhotel.com.

The Allman Brothers Band @ Beacon Theatre
Pioneers of jam bands, and progenitors of blues and southern rock, The Allman Brothers continue their multi-night run at Beacon Theatre tonight.

Dropkick Murphys, Lucero, Skinny Lister @ The Paramount
It wouldn't be St. Patrick's Day week without shows from Dropkick Murphys, and this year they wrap up their two-night stand in the NYC-area with tonight's Long Island show. If you're going, be sure to catch their country punk tourmates Lucero too.

Lorde, Lo-Fang @ Roseland Ballroom
The popular Lorde is on night two of her sold-out three-night run at the soon-to-close Roseland Ballroom with support from the 4AD-signed Lo-Fang.

Tonight's Roosevelt show at Glasslands has been cancelled.

Turin Brakes / Vampillia
Turin Brakes
V

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

Turin Brakes, Butchers Blind @ The Mercury Lounge
Long-running Britpop duo Turin Brakes have always kept things on the more low-key folky side, only indulging in sweeping anthemicism occasionally. Tickets are still available.

Geryon, Vampillia, Colin Marston, Mossenek @ Death By Audio
It's another NYC show this week for Boredoms-related Japanese band Vampillia, and like all of the shows they're doing here, they'll be joined by a great, experimental-minded lineup.

Conveyor, Cult & Leper, The Top, Harpoon Forever @ Baby's All Right
Conveyor can be a bit bipolar -- the Brooklyn-based band often keep things lovely and acoustic, but their recent GOLD 7" finds them rocking out '70s style. Stream it below. This is their first local show in a while.

Dropkick Murphys, Lucero, Skinny Lister @ Starland Ballroom
It wouldn't be St. Patrick's Day week without shows from Dropkick Murphys, and this year they've got shows in NJ tonight and Long Island tomorrow. If you're going, be sure to catch their country punk tourmates Lucero too.

Lorde, Lo-Fang @ Roseland Ballroom
The popular Lorde kicks off her sold-out three-night run at the soon-to-close Roseland Ballroom with support from the 4AD-signed Lo-Fang.

Night Train @ Littlefield
Tonight, Wyatt Cenac's weekly Night Train comedy show will be guest hosted by Jean Grae and Josh Gondelman. Guests include Emily Heller, Joe Zimmerman, Jena Friedman, Claudia Cogan, Lafayette Wright and more.

Chain

Japanther @ MHOW 2011 (more by Andre St. Clair)
Japanther

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

Chain and the Gang, Turn To Crime @ Union Pool
Ian Svenonious is a one-of-kind, having fronted legendary bands Nation of Ulysses and Make-Up and the very rock Chain and the Gang. The band's new album, Minimum Rock n' Roll, is out in April and you can stream a track from it below.

Japanther, Tiny Moving Parts, Tournament, Radical Discharge @ Saint Vitus
Japanther are always known to have a rowdy live show, and while Tiny Moving Parts may not be as nuts, they're pretty fun and undeniable themselves. We're happy to be presenting this co-bill from those bands, and there's punky support from Tournament and Radical Discharge.

Drowners, Stuckey & Murray @ Brooklyn Bowl
NYC's leather jacket-wearing rockers Drowners aren't shy about their affinity for bands like The Stokes and the Arctic Monkeys. They play for the toddler set at the family-friendly Kidrockers series this afternoon.

CYMBALS, Seoul, Paperwhite, Marian Hill, Lion Babe @ Brooklyn Bowl
The free It's A School Night series has a little SXSW flavor tonight with UK band CYMBALS and Montreal's Seoul. RSVP for gratis entry.

Buffalo Daughter, The Suzan @ Baby's All Right
Japanese trio Buffalo Daughter released records on Beastie Boys' label Grand Royal in the '90s and have continued since. Catch them tonight with another Japanese band, The Suzan.

Jungle, Wet @ The Mercury Lounge
Enigmatic UK act Jungle let their music do the talking: specifically, R&B-tinged dance pop that manages to sound both classic and modern at the same time. A duo in the studio, they expand to a seven-piece live, and this is their second of two sold-out NYC shows with Wet.

Throwing Muses, Tanya Donelly @ Bowery Ballroom
Indie rock vets Throwing Muses returned in 2013 with the album/book, Purgatory/Paradise, their first full length in 10 years. Tonight could be special: opening is Tanya Donnelly who was in the band during the '80s (and is Kristen Hersh's half-sister). Maybe she'll come out with TM for a couple songs?

Shellshag w/ Todd Congelliere, Tuff Tits, Magnets, Dirty Circle, Lilith Velkor @ Death By Audio
Last night, Toys That Kill's Todd Congelliere shared a bill with Tuff Tits (and Screaming Females) at Silent Barn to celebrate Shellhead's (of Shellshag) birthday. Tonight, Todd actually joins Shellshag on stage, and the three of them will be performing songs from each other's respective projects together.

Balk, Radical Dads, Mt Warning, Wool @ Glasslands Gallery
It's a night of '90s style indie rock with the flinty Balk, and seriously underrated trio Radical Dads

Antibalas @ SOB's
NYC afrobeat crew promise "a bunch of new/different material tonight, dusting off some old gems and working in some new stuff."

Comedy Night @ Knitting Factory Brooklyn
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. Get there early.

Bob Dorough @ Joe's Pub
You may not know his name but chances are you've heard Bob Dorough's songs and voice: he wrote and sang many of Schoolhouse Rock's best-loved songs, including "Three is Magic Number," "Conjuction Junction," and "The Shot Heard 'Round The World."

Vampillia, Leah Lazonick, Snowday, England in 1819, Three Thousand Rivers @ Pianos
Boredoms-related Vampillia play another of their zillion NYC shows at Pianos tonight.

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