You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Jack White, Run The Jewels @ Madison Square Garden
Former White Stripe, blues lover, and guitar-rock devotee Jack White returns to MSG (where The White Stripes played in 2007) for his first headlining show here as a solo artist. His recent sets have all had him mixing it up between his solo stuff and his former bands (at his Nashville show on Wednesday, he actually reunited The Raconteurs on stage). If you're going tonight, definitely don't miss Run The Jewels, the recently-formed rap duo by Killer Mike and El-P that truly reinvigorated both of their careers. Tonight's show is sold out.
If you're not going, you can stream it live on Pandora. It begins at 9 PM and loops for the next 72 hours. An archive will go up on February 3 where you can listen to it song-by-song.
Hamilton Leithauser, Elle King @ Bowery Ballroom
While no longer fronting The Walkmen, Hamilton Leithauser retains his signature raspy, impassioned delivery...and taste in suits.
Torres, Mainland, Heliotropes, Ancient Ocean @ Brooklyn Night Bazaar
Torres announced her new album earlier this week, and put out the single which has her sounding more rocking than on her debut. Hopefully we'll hear even more new stuff tonight.
Beverly, Honduras, Christines @ Alphaville
Bushwick bar Alphaville has been open for a few months, but this is the first official show in its back room performance space. It's a pretty killer kickoff, with the ultra-melodic indie rock of Beverly, '60s revivalists Honduras, and Christines' thick shoegaze.
Blondes (DJ), John + Jehn, Johnny Hostile, JDH @ Good Room
While here for Savages' residency, singer Jehnny Beth has been doing a few shows with partner Johnny Hostile as their electronic duo incarnation. Blondes will be DJing.
Tombs, Black Anvil, Darkside NYC @ The Acheron
Sludgesters Tombs and black metallers Black Anvil are two of NYC's best local bands, and this spring they'll hit the road together in Europe. But tonight they'll give their hometown a taste of that same double bill.
Screaming Females @ Stevens Institute of Technology
Screaming Females are about to release their sixth album, and from the sound of the songs they've put out so far, it's going more of their badass rock and killer riffs. They've got a couple NYC shows coming up next month, but tonight they'll be nearby in Hoboken.
Invisible Familiars, Adam Schatz & Thomas White's Option Copter (w/ Cibo Mato, Delicate Steve, Sean Lennon + more) @ Baby's All Right
Having worked with Martha Wainwright, Cibo Matto, Sean Lennon and others, Jared Samuel's own music, as Invisble Familiars, is an appealing hodgepodge of styles that is at once quirky, folky, poppy and danceable. Tonight's the release party for his Other Music debut and opening is Adam Schatz & Thomas White's Option Copter that features Cibo Matto, Steve Marion of Delicate Steve, Sean Lennon, and "many more!" Sounds intriguing.
Ben Howard, Hiss Golden Messenger @ Hammerstein Ballroomv
Ben Howard's the headliner, but if you're going to this show we especially recommend showing up for Hiss Golden Messenger. He'stransformed from a haunting bare-bones folk singer to an Electric Dylan-esque folk rocker, and whatever mode he's in, it's great.
Celestial Shore, Zula, Cloud Becomes Your Hand, Voice Coils @ Shea Stadium
This is a pretty stacked bill of local experimental bands, with the mathy indie pop of Celestial Shore, the psych pop of Zula, the arty/eccentric Cloud Becomes Your Hand, and prog collective Voice Coils, who include members of various local bands and are fronted by Mitski.
Ovlov, Grass Is Green, Two Inch Astronaut, KSPILL @ Silent Barn
If you miss the indie rock and post-hardcore sounds of the '90s, you'll find that the bands on this bill fill that void pretty well.
Addison Groove, Doctor Jeep, ROZI, Regent Street @ Cameo Gallery
UK footwork producer Addison Groove is one of the musicians who had the pleasure of collaborating with DJ Rashad before he sadly passed away. If you like Rashad's stuff, there's a good chance you'll dig Addison Groove's too.
Frontier Ruckus, The Bros. Landreth @ Mercury Lounge
Michigan folk pop band Frontier Ruckus released their fourth album, Sitcom Afterlife, in late 2014. Tonight they make their way to NYC in support of it.
Sara Rachele, Kevin Hufnagel @ Union Hall
Singer/songwriter Sara Rachele makes folk with a rock edge, and opener Kevin Hufnagel is a ukulele-playing solo artist when he's not shredding in metal bands Dysrhythmia, Vaura, and Gorguts.
John Oliver @ Beacon Theater
While we wait for Last Week Tonight to return to HBO, host John Oliver does standup tonight in one of Manhattan's toniest venues.
Demetri Martin @ The Paramount
Master of witty deadpan one-liners Demetri Martin brings his tour just out of NYC tonight, and he'll be back in February to play the city proper.
Wolf Alice, Drenge @ Mercury Lounge
Two buzzy, hard-rockin' UK bands hit Mercury Lounge for the early show tonight.
The B-52's @ The Space at Westbury
Coming up quickly on their 40th anniversary, The B-52's still bring the party with a catalogue of classic dance-friendly postpunky new wave.
For all of tonight's shows, and tomorrow's, check out our NYC concert calendar.

FaltyDL (aka NYC producer Drew Lustman) released his third full length album, Hardcourage, last week/month (1/22) via Ninja Tune. For the most part, he's ditched the darker, harder edged UK bass of his last album, in favor of a brighter, wider sound that works great with the album's cover art (above). Friendly Fires' Ed Macfarlane lends his vocals to the track "She Sleeps," and though the rest of the album tends to stay away from vocals, it still packs plenty of other pop moments. You can stream the album in its entirety HERE and watch the video for album single, "Straight & Arrow," below.
FaltyDL just played a Mister Saturday Night party in NYC last week, and he'll play another local show TONIGHT (2/1) at Cameo Gallery with the impressive UK producer Addison Groove and Max Pearl. Tickets for tonight's show are available.

Massive Attack at Terminal 5 in 2010 (more by Chris La Putt)
Trip hop pioneers Massive Attack have assembled a BBC 6 Mix, where they compiled music that influenced their 1991 debut album, Blue Lines, like Pink Floyd, Kraftwerk, Gang of Four, Isaac Hayes and more alongside some of their new favorite artists like Burial, Flying Lotus, The Bug vs The Rootsman, Kanye West & Booka Shade, and more (via Daily Swarm). You can download or stream the mix and check out the tracklist below.

UK producer Anthony Williams, who has previously recorded as Headhunter, released his debut LP under his new Addison Groove moniker earlier this month on Modeselektor's 50 Weapons label. The album is called Transistor Rhythm and puts Addison Groove next in the recent line of producers bringing Chicago juke and footwork into the UK bass scene. Stream clips of the album below alongside full streams of the tracks "Savage Henry" and "Bad Things."
Addison Groove just kicked off a North American tour in support of the album with fellow UK producer/50 Weapons labelmate Doc Daneeka last night (4/25) in Boston. The two producers will make their way to NYC this weekend for a Brooklyn show on Saturday (4/28) at Glasslands with Jubilee. Tickets for the Brooklyn show are on sale now. All dates are listed below.
Speaking of Modeselektor, they just played NYC shows of their own at Bowery and Music Hall as part of a between-Coachella tour that ended back at Coachella where they were joined on stage by Thom Yorke.
