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

Phil Selway, Adem @ Le Poisson Rouge
Radiohead drummer Phil Selway is also a solo artist, and he followed 2010's folky Familial last year with Weatherhouse, which was a bit more in line with Radiohead's art rock era. Opening tonight is Adem (who plays in Fridge with Four Tet, and other bands) and he plays in Phil's band too.

Empire Records 20th anniversary celebration (aka Rex Manning Day) @ Rough Trade
For the 20th anniversary of beloved '90s movie Empire Records, Williamsburg record store/music venue Rough Trade NYC will turn into the Empire Records store from the movie for three days (this being the first). It's an immersive experience, which includes a Rex Manning autograph, a head-shaving station, live bands and a DJ each night (tonight it's The Mosers, Born Cages, Vacations [John McSwain]), a screening of the film, and more. And perhaps most excitingly, GWAR (who make a cameo in the film) will appear at all three nights. All are sold out.

Jeremy Enigk, El May, Brian Bonz @ The Studio at Webster Hall
Sunny Day Real Estate frontman Jeremy Enigk is planning on releasing his first solo album since 2009, and while details are still mostly TBA, he's currently on the road for the first time in a while. Maybe we'll hear some new songs tonight?

Cock Sparrer, Murphy's Law, 45 Adapters @ Warsaw
UK punk vets Cock Sparrer helped pioneer the Oi! genre in the late '70s and early '80s, and at least one of their albums (1982's Shock Troops) is an essential in the genre. Tonight's their first NYC show in 15 years, and it's sold out. Show up early for NYC staples Murphy's Law and the Oi!-inspired 45 Adapters. Cock Sparrer do it again tomorrow too with different openers.

Jose Gonzalez, Olof Arnalds @ Webster Hall
We've gotten a lot of great hushed, bare-bones folk albums in 2015, and Jose Gonzalez's new one, Vestiges & Claws (his first solo album since 2007), is no exception to this. Tonight's his second of two sold-out NYC shows on his tour with Icelandic folk singer Olof Arnalds.

Frankie Cosmos, Trace Mountains, Alice, "super magic secret headliner" @ David Blaine's The Steakhouse
Frankie Cosmos squeezes in this last minute very tiny Bushwick show tonight, and there's a secret headliner. Any guesses?

RJD2, Alex English, Dali, Hiyawatha @ Webster Hall
Tonight's Girls & Boys party at Webster Hall includes underground hip hop production great RJD2 and more.

Wesley Stace's Cabinet of Wonders @ City Winery
Wesley Stace does another of his recurring Cabinet of Wonders shows tonight with guests Janeane Garofalo, The Milk Carton Kids, Robert Pinsky, Josh Rouse, Southside Johnny Andrew VanWyngarden, and Daniel Wolff & Bill Irwin.

Public Service Broadcasting, Kauf @ Bowery Ballroom
UK duo PSB mix their dancey instrumentals with soundbites from old PSA films, newsreels and other found footage. Their new album is about and titled The Race for Space. Live, the band add synched projections for a very fun show.

Upset, Colleen Green, Charly Bliss @ Shea Stadium
Working with JEFF the Brotherhood and Diarrhea Planet on her fun new album I Want to Grow Up, Colleen Green makes crunchy, punky pop. She's well matched with tourmates Upset who do much the same thing.

Sir Richard Bishop, Robert Mills @ Union Pool
Guitar master and Sun City Girl member Richard Bishop plays tonight with sound artist and composer Robert Mills.

Pimps of Joytime, Superhuman Happiness @ Brooklyn Bowl
Highly rhythmic Brooklyn collective Superhuman Happiness make quirky indiepop with an emphasis on groove.

Hey Rosetta!, Kevin Garrett @ Knitting Factory
Newfoundland orch-pop outfit Hey Rosetta! are known for their spirited, string-laden live shows. The band's new album, Second Sight, was released earlier this year.

Har Mar Superstar, Andy D @ Knitting Factory
A fearless and funny performer, Har Mar Superstar brings the party -- and his R&B/rock/pop songs -- to wherever he plays. This one starts at 11:45 PM.

Kosmodemonic, Steve Brodsky @ Saint Vitus
Unfortunately Ides of Gemini had to drop off this show, but it's still got local psych metal band Kosmodemonic and Cave In/Mutoid Man's Steve Brodsky.

SALES, Adult Mom, Diet Cig @ Baby's All Right
SALES make a mix of electronic pop and lo-fi DIY rock. Tonight's their first of two NYC shows on this tour, and this one includes recent Tiny Engines signee Adult Mom and recent Father/Daughter signees Diet Cig.

Dash Rip Rock @ Midtown Live
The Louisiana trio, named after a Elvis-like character on The Beverly Hillbillies, have been making rockabilly-inflected music since the '80s and remain a force live.

Young Fathers, Mas Ysa, Glass Gang @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Scottish trio Young Fathers got a lot of hype last year for their alt-rap album Dead (which won the Mercury Prize), and they've already followed it with a new one, White Men Are Black Men Too. Tonight's show is sold out.

Strand of Oaks in Austin in 2012 (more by Tim Griffin)

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

Yo La Tengo, The Feelies @ Town Hall
While their Maxwell's Hanukkah shows are sorely missed, Yo La Tengo will be celebrating the season -- and their 30th anniversary -- with two shows at Town Hall, tonight being the second. Tonight's show is with another legendary NJ indie rock outfit. Sold out.

tUnE-yArDs, Cibo Matto, Beep! @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
tUnE-yArDs dove further into their world of quirky, eccentric pop on this year's Nikki Nack, and Cibo Matto returned with their first album since 1999 which had them still in good form. Tonight begins their 4-night run at MHOW.

Dee Dee of Dum Dum Girls with Ice Choir @ Converse SOHO
This free in-store performance sounds kinda cool: Dee Dee doing a full set of Dum Dum Girls songs as backed (and arranged) by Kurt Feldman's new romantic synthpop outfit Ice Choir. It's a free show (one of a few around the country) in celebration of a new multi-artist holiday EP that will be available on vinyl only at these shows.

Strand of Oaks, Torres @ Bowery Ballroom
Strand of Oaks made the move from an introverted folk singer to a big-sounding folk rock band this year, and the change has been pretty successful. Tonight's their largest headlining show in NYC yet, and it's a great double bill with Torres' grungy folk.

New Build, Future Punx, Orange Cassettes @ Rough Trade
New Build, the side project of Hot Chip's Al Doyle and Felix Martin, play their second NYC show of the week. This one is without tourmates Museum of Love but in their place are local new wavers Future Punx, and Orange Cassettes which is the new band from Radio 4's Anthony Roman.

TEEN, Beverly, Charly Bliss, Scully @ Glasslands
TEEN have played Glasslands many times over the last few years and will say goodbye to the soon-to-close venue as part of a very good bill of indie rock.

Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings, Antibalas, Charles Bradley and His Extraordinaires, Naomi Shelton & Gospel Queens @ Apollo Theater
Tonight's the first of Daptone's three-day holiday party called the Super Soul Revue at the iconic Harlem venue.

Junius, So Hideous, In Aeona @ Saint Vitus
Tis the season to be jolly, and Prosthetic Records are celebrating with a decidedly un-jolly holiday party at Saint Vitus tonight. Heavy post-rockers Junius and likeminded locals So Hideous will stack this show with dark atmospheres. Admission gets you a free glass of Prosthetic Imperial Black Ale brewed specially for the occasion by Sixpoint Brewery.

Shad, Kahli Abdu, Jay Wirth @ The Studio at Webster Hall
Alt-rapper Shad keeps the golden age hip hop vibes alive on his new EP, Boarding Pass, which came out this week. Tonight he's in NYC for a one-off show.

X Blank X, Cellular Chaos, Ron Anderson/Richard Hoffman/Brian Chase Band, Sediment Club @ Cake Shop
Mid 70's Cleveland art punk band X__X reformed earlier in 2014 for their first live shows in 35 years. Tonight's show is with a group of fittingly experimental acts, including Yeah Yeah Yeahs drummer Brian Chase.

Oliver, Plastic Plates, Alex English, Dali, Hiyawatha, Maximillion Dunbar, Shawn Reynaldo, Contakt, Bobby B @ Output
Dance duo Oliver get funky on their new Light Years Away EP for Fool's Gold. They're on tour in support of it, hitting Output for their weekly INPUT party tonight with Plastic Plates and some of the Girls & Boys DJs. Maxmillion Dunbar and others are in the Panther Room.

Low Fat Getting High, Grizzlor, Ceramics, biggpigg @ Grand Victory
Low Fat Getting High have been one of the more promising bands in Brooklyn's DIY rock scene as of late thanks to their catchy and aggressive grunge/punk hybrid. Their debut LP finally came out a few weeks ago, and tonight they'll likely be ripping through plenty of that.

John Zorn's Masada Marathon w/ Abraxas, Forro in the Dark, Sfia Rei, Erik Friedlander, Uri Gurvich @ Nublu
Part of the Nublu Jazz Fest, tonight's lineup was curated by Downtown icon John Zorn.

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

Stolen Dali

"Gee, that was easy.
The NYPD has cracked the case of the stolen Salvador Dali painting after it was mysteriously mailed back to New York from Europe, The Post has learned. The $150,000 watercolor-and-ink original work arrived in pristine condition inside a box at JFK Airport yesterday morning, law enforcement sources said. "It seems to be in exceptional condition," said one source. "It was addressed to the gallery and it had a return address, but it appears to be bogus and the name is illegible." [NY Post]
