You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Russian Circles, Cloakroom, Wildhoney @ Saint Vitus
Post-metal greats Russian Circles always put on a hell of a show, and tonight's sold-out Saint Vitus gig should be no exception. There's great support too, from the sludgy Cloakroom and the shoegazy Wildhoney.
Oneida, Baby Birds Don't Drink Milk, Dan Friel, The Big Ship @ Palisades
Venverable and improvisational Brooklyn indie rock Oneida headline this show but if you're going do check out Kansas smudge-pop transplants BBDDM whose new album Burritos is out in March.
Pill, Future Punx, Acid Dad, Gingerlys, Surf Rock is Dead, Dreamcrusher, Vomitface @ Baby's All Right
Pill, Future Punx, Acid Dad, Haybaby, Gingerlys, Surf Rock is Dead, Dreamcrusher, and Vomitface were named some of Brooklyn's hardest-working bands of 2015 by Oh My Rockness and they're all playing a OMR-presented show.
Tall Juan, Slavve, Sister Flowerz @ Berlin
Originally from Buenos Aries, Argentina, Tall Juan has been making music in NYC for a couple years now, and you may have seen him playing with another Juan (Wauters) at shows recently (and as part of The Beets). Like Wauters, he makes ramshackle, garagey folk-pop. Catching him at the downstairs grotto that is EV club Berlin should be pretty cool.
Venom Inc., Necrophagia, Metalfier, Extinction A.D. @ the Marlin Room at Webster Hall
While Cronos still leads his version of Venom, fellow "classic era" members Mantas and Abaddon have their own version called Venom Inc. They're on the road with death metal pioneers Necrophagia, and hitting NYC tonight.
Dominant Life, Deli Girls, Machine Girl, Dreamcrusher, B L A C K I E, Dalek @ Trans-Pecos
There's a lot of cool stuff on this bill, notably industrial rap from B L A C K I E and the back-in-action Dalek.
Bite It You Scum (GG Allin Tribute), Gozer, Moral Panic, Cruiser, DJs Paul Bearer (Sheer Terror) and Mick Collins (The Gories, The Dirtbombs) @ Grand Victory
GG Allin tribute band Bite It You Scum headlines this punk bill, and DJ sets come from the great Paul Bearer and Mick Collins. Sounds like a party.
Honduras, The Beverleys @ Mercury Lounge
Toronto punks The Beverleys kick off their tour with Brooklyn's Honduras tonight.
Speed The Plough, Glenn Morrow's Cry For Help, George Usher, Lisa Burns @ Cake Shop
Together for over 30 years, this New Jersey indie rock band founded by John and Toni Baumgartner (and has included members of The Feelies over the years) are still going strong, and just released their new album, Now, and you can check out a song from that below.
For all of tonight's shows, and tomorrow's, check out our NYC concert calendar.

Pissed Jeans at MHOW in 2013 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Jay Z's Budweiser Made In America Festival happens Labor Day Weekend (8/30-31), this time happening simultaneously in Philly and LA. Like last year, the Philly lineup of mostly rap, R&B, electronic and festival-level indie bands will be complemented by some punk bands including Pissed Jeans, Glassjaw, Nothing, The Menzingers and more. Those bands play on The Skate Stage which goes from 2:30 to 7 PM each day and should be to seek refuge if you need to get some aggression out before Grimes and Chromeo.
LA's Skate Stage was announced too, but that one's more dance-oriented with DJ Mustard and Grits & Biscuits. Tickets for both fests are still available.
Main stage lineups for both fests are HERE. Full Skate Stage lineups below...
Firefly 2013 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
As discussed, Dover, Delaware's annual Firefly Music Festival is returning this year and has expanded to a four-day festival happening from June 19-22. Since we last spoke, the lineup has been announced and it includes Outkast, Foo Fighters, Arctic Monkeys, Weezer, Band of Horses, Chance the Rapper, Courtney Barnett, Iron & Wine, Phantogram, Phosphorescent, Sky Ferreira, Sleigh Bells, Tegan and Sara, tUnE-yArDs, Washed Out, not to mention everyone's favorite festival act Jack Jackson as one of the headliners. Tickets go on sale Monday (1/20) at noon, and VIP passes are already on sale.

Twin Sister at Bowery Ballroom in 2011 (more by Jessica Amaya)
There have been countless Hurricane Sandy relief benefits in NYC in the over-a-month since the storm hit and, fortunately as they're needed, there's no sign that they'll be stopping any time soon. There's one going down at Glasslands on December 17 with Chairlift, Twin Sister, Empress Of, Slowdance, Jason McMahon, and a DJ set from Ice Choir (aka Kurt Feldman of The Pains of Being Pure at Heart). Tickets for that show are on sale now. It's the only announced date for Chairlift at the moment, and also the only one for Twin Sister except for a Philly show with Ava Luna in January.
You can also catch a member of Chairlift at Glasslands tonight (12/6). Patrick Wimberly will be DJing at Fort Lean's release party for their Change Your Name EP with Ludwig Persik and Cruiser. Tickets for that show are available.
A couple videos are below.
