Erasure in Austin in October (more by Tim Griffin)
Erasure

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

Erasure, All Hail The Silence @ Terminal 5
With a bucketload of synthpop hits, Vince Clarke and Andy Bell hit NYC for two NYC NYE shows, tonight being the first. Expect extra glitz and glamour in the duo's already over-the-top stage show.

Patti Smith @ Webster Hall
Punk legend Patti Smith put out a handful of classics of the late '70s NYC scene, and her live shows and newest music (2012's Banga) are still awesome today. Tonight she continues her tradition of year-end shows in her hometown with her second of two Webster Hall shows.

The Hold Steady, The So So Glos @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Like their fellow bar rock pals Deer Tick, The Hold Steady are ringing in the new year with a multi-night run in NYC this year. They bring the party to MHOW tonight for their first of two shows there, both of which are with local punks The So So Glos.

Deer Tick, The Weeks @ Brooklyn Bowl
Deer Tick are bringing the rock and the very drunk nights to Brooklyn Bowl for 6 nights in a row this holiday season leading up to New Year's Eve. This is night 5 and it will feature them performing Elvis Costello's My Aim Is True in its entirety, plus a set of originals. Southern rockers The Weeks open.

Cymbals Eat Guitars, Keepaway, Mon Khmer, Air Waves @ Glasslands
It's the second to last night you'll ever see a show at Glasslands, and for this one they got local indie rock greats Cymbals Eat Guitars, who took a huge step forward on this year's LOSE (one of our favorite albums of 2014).

Prince Rupert's Drops, Savants, Moonwalks, GODS @ Rough Trade
Brooklyn's Prince Rupert's Drops make the kind of mushroom tea psychedelia that pulls from faery folk, late-'60s garage and early-'70s hippy-isms. The band's new album, Climbing Light, was released last month.

Plow United, Mikey Erg, Chumped, Up For Nothing, Hatrabbits @ The Acheron
Melodic '90s punks Plow United have been back for a few years now, and they'll cap off 2014 with this show that includes fellow vet Mikey Erg (of like, 90 bands), one of NYC's best newcomers for this kind of stuff, Chumped, and more.

Sunflower Bean, Life Size Maps, Bluffing, Haybaby @ Baby's All Right
Baby's All Right put together this lineup of some of their favorite "come-ups" from 2014. This New Year's Eve Eve show is free.

The Detroit Cobras, Dough Rollers, Twin Guns @ The Bowery Electric
The Motor City garage rock covers crew Detroit Cobras are on the East Coast for some shows around New Year's, this being the first.

Chromeo (DJ Set), Nick Catchdubs @ Output
Get your pre-NYE party on with Montreal/NYC duo Chromeo and Fool's Gold co-founder Nick Catchdubs.

Sandra Bernhard @ Joe's Pub
Sandra Bernhard is doing her show 'Sandra Bernhard is #blessed' which "spotlights her own unique, sharp blend of hysterical insight and outspoken views, with rock-n-roll, cabaret, stand-up and a little burlesque." Two shows tonight, 7:30 PM and 9:30 PM.

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

Patti Smith at Riot Fest Chicago 2014 (more by James Richards IV)
Patti Smith

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

Patti Smith @ Webster Hall
Punk legend Patti Smith put out a handful of classics of the late '70s NYC scene, and her live shows and newest music (2012's Banga) are still awesome today. Tonight she continues her tradition of year-end shows in her hometown with her first of two Webster Hall shows.

TR/ST, Beacon, Klaus, SoftSpot, Big Al (DJ set) @ Glasslands
Just three nights left at Glasslands and this is sure to be a dance party, with Toronto's TR/ST (aka Trust, who play much bigger spaces these days) headlining.

Clutch, Torche, Lionize @ Starland Ballroom
Between Clutch and Torche, tonight's show is going to be jam packed with thick sludgy riffs and songs you can sing to too.

Deer Tick, The Districts @ Brooklyn Bowl
Deer Tick are bringing the rock and the very drunk nights to Brooklyn Bowl for 6 nights in a row this holiday season leading up to New Year's Eve. This is night 4 and it will feature them performing Devo's Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo!, plus a set of originals. Rootsy rockers The Districts open.

John Nolan, Vinnie Caruana, NGHBRS, Gabriel the Marine, Dan Pursino, Giants at Large @ The Studio at Webster Hall
This is the release show for the soundtrack of new independent drama/comedy Bridge And Tunnel, and especially of note are the solo sets from John Nolan (whose band Taking Back Sunday just wrapped up a holiday run in NJ) and Vinnie Caruana (whose band I Am the Avalanche just played NYC and whose other band The Movielife is reuniting soon).

Steel Panther @ Gramercy Theatre
Steel Panther's hair metal may be parody/comedy, but their live show is no joke. The crowd was loving it when they opened Judas Priest's recent Barclays Center show.

Sandra Bernhard @ Joe's Pub
Sandra Bernhard is doing her show 'Sandra Bernhard is #blessed' which "spotlights her own unique, sharp blend of hysterical insight and outspoken views, with rock-n-roll, cabaret, stand-up and a little burlesque." Two shows tonight, 7:30 PM and 9:30 PM.

Night Train w/ Wyatt Cenac @ Littlefield
It's the last Night Train of 2014 and Wyatt Cenac welcomes Seaton Smith, Barry Rothbart, Jen Kirkman, Jena Friedman, Doogie Horner, and Victor Varnado.

Television at Rough Trade in 2013 (more by Greg Cristman)
Television

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

Television, Dennis Driscoll @ Irving Plaza
One of NYC's most influential rock bands, Television wrap up their 2014 with three East Coast shows during the holidays. They'll play Philly on Monday and Asbury Park on Tuesday.

FEAST OF KRAMPUS: Wino, Sixty Watt Shaman, Godmaker, Birch Hill Dam, Moon Tooth, Buzzard Canyon @ Saint Vitus
Metal legend Scott "Wino" Weinrich (of Saint Vitus, Spirit Caravan and others) was recently deported from Norway for possession of methamphetamine, but now he's back in action in the US and headlining his second Feast of Krampus of 2014 tonight. (The first was in Philly last night.)

Bouncing Souls, Jesse Malin, frnkiero andthe cellabration, Seaside Caves @ Stone Pony
NJ punk heroes The Bouncing Souls kick off their 3-night Home for the Holidays run in Asbury Park tonight. There's different openers every night, and we can likely count on getting favorites from all over The Souls' 25-year career.

Worriers, Roger Harvey @ Asbury Lanes
There are also afterparties for the Bouncing Souls shows in Asbury Park, which all have great lineups too. This one has feminist pop punks Worriers (ex-The Measure [sa]) and indie folk/pop songwriter Roger Harvey.

Deer Tick, Joe Fletcher @ Brooklyn Bowl
Deer Tick are bringing the rock and the very drunk nights to Brooklyn Bowl for 6 nights in a row this holiday season leading up to New Year's Eve. This is night 3 and it will feature them performing The Beatles' Meet the Beatles, plus a set of originals. Nashville-via-Rhode Island singer Joe Fletcher opens.

Bass Drum of Death, Mitski, Sundelles, Lushes @ Glasslands
There's only four nights of Glasslands left, and tonight it's garage rock duo Bass Drum of Death headlining with direct support from quickly rising NYC singer/songwriter Mitski.

Le1f, DonChristian, Rahel, Boody, Abdu Ali, Juliana Huxtable, Joey Labeija, special guests @ SOB's
This is a Kwanzaa party with some killer names in NYC's left-field rap scene, headlined by the consistently great Le1f.

Taking Back Sunday, Modern Baseball, Have Mercy @ Starland Ballroom
Night 2 of Taking Back Sunday's holiday shows in NJ, and this one will be opened by the fun, lyrical, youthful Philly band Modern Baseball.

Fishbone, Shinobi Ninja, Nonstop To Cairo @ Gramercy Theatre
Still with core members Angelo Moore, Norwood Fisher and Walter Kibby, LA's groundbreaking ska/punk/funk/soul explosion Fishbone released the Intrinsically Intertwined EP this year, their first new material in three years. Of course, live is the optimal Fishbone experience.

Hannibal Buress @ Knitting Factory
Hannibal Buress still occasionally hosts his free Sunday comedy show in Knitting Factory's front room, but tonight is a headlining set in the venue's main room. Rescheduled from November, and sold out.

Sandra Bernhard @ Joe's Pub
Sandra Bernhard is doing her show 'Sandra Bernhard is #blessed' which "spotlights her own unique, sharp blend of hysterical insight and outspoken views, with rock-n-roll, cabaret, stand-up and a little burlesque." Two shows tonight, 7:30 PM and 9:30 PM.

ASDIG

Deer Tick in Forest Hills in September (more by PSquared)
Deer Tick

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

Psychic TV, Harsh Embrace, Autodrone @ Brooklyn Night Bazaar
For a second year running, Genesis Breyer P-Orridge's ever-changing Psychic TV comes to Brooklyn Night Bazaar for two shows, this being the first. Genesis is an icon, it's free -- two great reasons to go.

Deer Tick, Robert Ellis @ Brooklyn Bowl
Deer Tick are bringing the rock and the very drunk nights to Brooklyn Bowl for 6 nights in a row this holiday season leading up to New Year's Eve. This is night 2 and it will feature them performing Lou Reed's Transformer and a set of originals. Folk singer Robert Ellis opens.

Tanlines (DJ Set) @ Brooklyn Bowl
After the Deer Tick show, stick around for a DJ set from Brooklyn duo Tanlines.

Bouncing Souls, None More Black, The Scandals @ Stone Pony
NJ punk heroes The Bouncing Souls kick off their 3-night Home for the Holidays run in Asbury Park tonight. There's different openers every night, and especially of note here is None More Black, Jason Shevchuk's post-Kid Dynamite band who don't play too often.

Spraynard, Cayetana @ Asbury Lanes
There are also afterparties for the Bouncing Souls shows in Asbury Park, which all have great lineups too. This one has '90s punk worshippers Spraynard and great indie rock newcomers Cayetana.

A Sunny Day in Glasgow, Ava Luna, Wins @ Rough Trade
Philly's ASDIG released their critically acclaimed Sea When Absent this year and wrap up their 2014 with this show at Rough Trade. The band members are scattered all over the U.S. so there will probably not be another tour any time soon. See them while you can.

The Jazz June, Field Mouse, (Damn) This Desert Air @ Saint Vitus
While The Jazz June are veterans of the late '90s/early '00s emo scene, they returned this year with their first new album in 12 years and it's instead got them making fuzzy indie pop. They're good at that too, and the shoegazey pop of their Topshelf labelmates Field Mouse will be an excellent fit.

Sheer Terror, Slapshot, Heavy Chains, Blind Justice, Vice @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
NYHC veterans Sheer Terror turn 30 this year, and they're celebrating with this anniversary bash, and thanks to Boston's Slapshot there's a double dose of legendary hardcore on this bill.

Fiasco, Maxo @ Glasslands
Fiasco were regulars on the Brooklyn DIY scene in the late '00s and went their separate ways a few years back. They got back together to play one of DbA's final shows and now do the same for Glasslands.

Chrome Sparks (DJ Set), Kitty, Infinity Shred @ Glasslands
Chillwave survivor Chrome Sparks headlines this last-ever Saturday Night danceparty at Glasslands that also includes a live set from quirky rapper Kitty and from 8-bit champions Infinity Shred.

The World is a Beautiful Place & I am No Longer Afraid To Die, The Hotelier, Saintseneca, Brightside @ Bowery Ballroom
This is an excellent triple bill with the post rock/chamber pop/spoken word-inspired emo band TWIABP, the punkier Hotelier, and lush indie folk band Saintseneca. Brightside (signed to Derrick from TWIABP's label Broken World) open the show.

Regal Degal, Son of Dad, King Cyst @ Baby's All Right
Regal Degal is throwing a release party for their new tape called "Regalize It." Also playing is Son of Dad which is the new thing from Real Estate Drummer Jackson Pollis (who you may remember from his own band Your Nature), and King Cyst, which is the current thing of Luka Usmiani from Big Troubles.

Institute, Uniform, Appetite, Horoscope @ Silent Barn
Austin's Institute bring together members from a few hardcore bands (Wiccans, Glue, etc) to take it down a bit and play something a little more post-punk-inspired. Still super raw though. Noise/hardcore duo Uniform (ex-The Men, Drunkdriver) is a great pairing for this too.

Rakim @ BB King's
Rakim, the legendary MC who influenced so many of our greatest rappers, is still going strong after all these years. He plays his home city of NYC a good amount, and gets in one last show before the end of 2014 tonight.

Taking Back Sunday, The Menzingers, Modern Chemistry @ Starland Ballroom
Say what you will about the direction Taking Back Sunday ended up going in, but their debut Tell All Your Friends is one of the highlights of early '00s emo and they've been back with the lineup that made that album for a few years now. Tonight's the first of their two holiday shows in NJ, and each one has excellent support from the newer scene. Tonight it's The Menzingers.

Crazy and The Brains, Gymshorts, Surfbort @ The Studio at Webster Hall
Tonight's show at Webster Studio is a cool local bill with folk punks Crazy and the Brains, surf punks Gymshorts, and garage punks Surfbort.

Darlene Love @ BB King's
Darlene Love may never perform her classic Phil Spector collaboration "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)" on television again, but she's still performing the song and other Christmas favorites at her shows. Tonight's the third of four BB King's shows in her annual Christmas run at the venue.

The Sons & Heirs, My Insatiable One @ Littlefield
What a dream double bill it would be to see The Smiths and Suede on the same stage. That will probably never happen, but you can see both tonight -- in tribute band form.

Sandra Bernhard @ Joe's Pub
Sandra Bernhard is doing her show 'Sandra Bernhard is #blessed' which "spotlights her own unique, sharp blend of hysterical insight and outspoken views, with rock-n-roll, cabaret, stand-up and a little burlesque." Two shows tonight, 7:30 PM and 9:30 PM.

Psychic TV, House of Blondes, Lazy Queen @ Brooklyn Night Bazaar
For a second year running, Genesis Breyer P-Orridge's ever-changing Psychic TV comes to Brooklyn Night Bazaar for two shows, this being the first. House of Blondes, who played with them last year too, are on the bill again. Genesis is an icon, it's free.

Bouncing Souls, Bane, Blanks 77, Morning Glory @ Stone Pony

Smalltalk, Dark Blue @ Asbury Lanes
There are also afterparties for the Bouncing Souls shows in Asbury Park, which all have great lineups too. This one has Bouncing Souls guitarist Pete Steinkopf's other band Smalltalk and Philly post-punks Dark Blue (mems Clockcleaner, Paint It Black).

I Am The Avalanche, Iron Chic, The Scandals @ Bowery Ballroom
While The Movielife recently announced they'll be reuniting next year, singer Vinnie Caruana's current band I Am The Avalanche is getting in this one last NYC show before that. And it's a good lineup all around, with anthemic Long Island punks Iron Chic and The Gaslight Anthem's pals The Scandals.

Deer Tick, Jana Hunter @ Brooklyn Bowl
Deer Tick are bringing the rock and the very drunk nights to Brooklyn Bowl for 6 nights in a row this holiday season leading up to New Year's Eve.

Only six nights of Glasslands left, and the first of two shows tonight features Real Estate guitarist Matt Mondanile's solo band Ducktails, plus Underwater Peoples pals Julian Lynch and Family Portrait.

Bit Funk, Escort (DJ Set), Friendly Greg (DJ Set) @ Glasslands
...or head there late for the last-ever Friday night dance party at Glasslands.

Cyril Hahn, Obey City, Baile @ Output
PMR-signed producer Cyril Hahn got some buzz early on for working with his labelmate Jessie Ware, but from the sounds of his new Voices EP, he's ready to dominate dancefloors even without an association to Jessie.

Prodigy of Mobb Deep, Boogz Boogetz, Sam Scarfo, Black Dave, Nature, Rick Gonzalez @ Knitting Factory
Queensbridge rap legends Mobb Deep had quite the busy 2014, but that didn't stop Prodigy from also dropping his own album, Young Rollin Stonerz. It's a collaboration with Boogz Boogetz, and they celebrate it tonight. The show also doubles as a release show for Sam Scarfo's collaborative album with Ski Beatz, 5 Million Stories, which Prodigy features on.

Darlene Love @ BB King's
Darlene Love may never perform her classic Phil Spector collaboration "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)" on television again, but she's still performing the song and other Christmas favorites at her shows. Tonight's the second of four BB King's shows in her annual Christmas run at the venue.

Allen Toussaint Trio @ City Winery
While most of his best-known songs were made famous by other performers, producer, arranger, hitmaker and general New Orleans living legend Allen Toussaint in no small way helped shape not only the sound of that city's R&B scene but of rock n' roll and pop music in general. Tonight's show is being billed as "A New Orleans Christmas."

The "all-girl, all-Zeppelin" tribute act tonight is performing "The Song Remains the Same" MSG concerts (July, 1973) and more.
