Browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows. Here are some highlights...
The xx, Polica @ Radio City Music Hall
The xx and Polica are two groups with a knack for tackling indie pop, R&B, and electronica all at once, so this matchup should make for a great double bill. Tonight they take on their first of two nights at Radio City Music Hall.
Frankie Rose, Tamaryn, Weeknight @ Bowery Ballroom
Frankie Rose celebrates the release of her third album, Herein Wild, tonight at Bowery Ballroom which is a co-headlining show with Tamaryn. Tickets are still available.
EPMD, DJ Scratch, Fat Tony @ Brooklyn Bowl
New York hip hop legends EPMD are celebrating the 25th anniversary of their 1988 debut, Strictly Business, with their longtime DJ, DJ Scratch. If you show up early to this silver anniversary celebration of this golden age record, you can catch upcoming Houston rapper Fat Tony opening the night.
Endless Boogie, Steve Gunn, Tom Blacklung and the Smokestacks @ 285 Kent Avenue
Steve Gunn has been touring as a guitarist in Kurt Vile's band, and if you're a fan of the breezy folk he contributes to with KV, you'll likely dig his solo stuff too. Tonight he joins the jammy Endless Boogie for a show at 285 Kent.
Daryl Hall, John Oates @ Beacon Theatre
With a long list of hits -- "I Can't Go for That," "Rich Girl," "Say It Isn't So" to name three" -- this iconic pop duo will serve them up tonight at one of NYC's loveliest venues.
Chris Thile @ Rockwood Music Hall
Yesterday, Chris Thile (Punch Brothers) played the Brooklyn Bluegrass Bash with a number of different musicians, but tonight he tones things down for a solo show at Rockwood Music Hall.
SOLDOUT @ Cake Shop
This Belgian electropop duo are making a pitstop in NYC on their way to Pop Montreal playing tonight at Cake Shop and Tuesday (9/24) at Rockwood Music Hall. If you like The Knife and Grimes you may want to check them out -- their album is streaming on Spotify.
The Denzels, Cool Serbia, The Teen Age, El Sportivo @ Glasslands
It's a quadruple bill of Brooklyn guitar pop, headlined by the very catchy Denzels. The Teen Age are pretty good too.
Travis, Luke Rathborne @ Webster Hall
Longrunning Britpop act Travis recently released their seventh album, Where You Stand, that continues in their anthemic style. They may not be in fashion as much as they used to but "Sing" still sounds pretty good.
Supersuckers, Hellbound Glory, Habits @ The Studio at Webster Hall
These country punks are lovin' the road. Having already played NYC once this month, tonight they're back for more.
Night Train w/ Wyatt Cenac @ Littlefield
Wyatt Cenac does his weekly Night Train comedy show at Littlefield with guests Eugene Mirman, Barry Rothbart, Doug Smith, Calvin Cato, Michelle Wolf, and more.

Andrew W.K.'s Super Bowl 2013 halftime show at Santos (more by Dan Bracaglia)
If you live in NYC and want to see Andrew W.K., the question isn't ever really "when will there be a show?" as much as it's "which one should I go to?" with pretty much new Andrew W.K. shows popping up by the minute. He just did a Super Bowl halftime show at Santos and has a slot at upcoming pop punk festival Skate and Surf.
But this upcoming 285 Kent show on March 6 that he just scheduled is looking like one of his cooler appearances in a while. That venue's been hosting some pretty great bills lately, and for this one, Andrew W.K. will be joined by DOM, CIties Aviv, Dickpic (aka the collaborative project of DJ Dog Dick and Pictureplane), and Cool Serbia. That should make for an all-around crazy night and tickets to be part of it are on sale now.
Andrew W.K. will also be at IFC Center on February 28 (323 Avenue of the Americas) for a screening of David Lynch's The Elephant Man. Not sure what he'll be doing, but he'll be there.
