Bass Drum of Death at the Seaport in 2013 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Young & Sick, Yellerkin @ Baby's All Right
Young & Sick is the somewhat mysterious R&B project of "Nick" who used to record as Japayork and has done album artwork for famous artists like Foster the People, Maroon 5 and Robin Thicke. Nick and his band (they're a trio live) are playing their first-ever live shows this week, and tonight's their NYC debut. Will it live up to the hype?
Weeknight, Courtship Ritual, Certain Creatures @ Mercury Lounge
If you like the darker, dustier side of The Ravoenettes, you might want to check out Brooklyn band Weeknight who mine a similar territory. Their debut album, due in about a month, is a nice wintry listen.
Honduras, Coastgaard, High Waisted, Behaviors @ Pianos
Uber-catchy Brooklynites Coastgaard begin their February residency at Pianos tonight with three other hand-picked bands.
This is Head, Robins Egg Blue @ Cake Shop
Malmö, Sweden's This is Head just got their debut album released in North America and are over for a few East Coast shows. This is the first of two NYC ones.
Bass Drum of Death, Shadow Walker, Low Fat Getting High @ Union Pool
Mississippi duo Bass Drum of Death (who are a trio live) make raw, lively garage rock, and tonight they kick off a 2-night stand at Brooklyn's Union Pool. Worth getting there early for local punks Low Fat Getting High too.
Michael Snow, Alan Licht, Aki Onda @ Issue Project Room
This avant trio features Lee Ranaldo & the Dust guitarist (and onetime SPIN editor) Alan Licht, composer and visual artist Aki Onda, and Canadian pianist Michael Snow.
Amon Amarth, Enslaved, Skeletonwitch @ Irving Plaza
Sweden's ever-popular death metal band Amon Amarth bring their tour to NYC tonight, and they've got great support including progressive black metal Norwegians Enslaved and wild Ohio thrashers Skeletonwitch.
For all of tonight's shows, and tomorrow's, check out our NYC concert calendar.

He is responding really well to treatment, and rough as it has been, it's your messages and posts that have inspired us and keep us focused on the path ahead.

DOWNLOAD: Leverage Models - "Cooperative Extensions" (MP3)
Leverage Models is the new collective led by Shannon Fields, the head producer and multi-instrumentalist of Stars Like Fleas. He's got a few singles out, including the most recently released "Cooperative Extensions," which dropped this past July and can be downloaded above or streamed below. It's less jazzy post-rock than Stars Like Fleas, and more on the polyrhythmic pop side recalling the arty new wave of Talking Heads or early Duran Duran.
The band just played a Brooklyn show last week (1/31) at Cameo, and you'll get another chance to catch them on February 11 at Glasslands with Octo Octa (who also plays with Maria Minerva in March), Test House, and Certain Creatures. Tickets for that show are on sale now.
