You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Grooms, Parlor Walls, Faten Kanaan @ Shea Stadium
They'll soon be on a multi-continent tour with former Death by Audio roommates A Place to Bury Strangers, but Brooklyn's underrated guitar twisters Grooms will be limbering up their road muscles tonight.
Cult of Luna, Kylesa, InAeona @ Gramercy Theatre
It's an excellent double bill of boundary-pushing heavy music with Swedish post-metal band Cult of Luna, and the more psychedelic Kylesa who have a new album on the way.
Ricky Eat Acid, Ed Schrader's Music Beat, Field Trip, Crazy and The Brains @ The Studio at Webster Hall
This bill brings all kinds of genres together, including ambient electronic from Ricky Eat Acid, rowdy post-punk from Ed Schrader's Music beat, and punk with a xylophone player (it works!) from Crazy & the Brains.
The Vaccines @ Rough Trade (two shows)
UK guitar poppers The Vaccines, who just released new album English Graffiti a few months ago, usually play places much, much bigger than Rough Trade. Needless to say, both of tonight's shows are sold out.
The Cannanes, Pale Lights, The Hairs @ Alphaville
Australian DIY pop royalty, The Cannanes have been making charmingly shambolic music since the '80s. This is the final show of their U.S. tour, they don't play this side of the world very often, so don't miss this chance to see them.
Jen Kirkman, Allison Castillo @ Bowery Ballroom
If you've watched Kirkman's popular Netflix special I'm Gonna Die Alone (And I Feel Fine), over and over, fret not. On this tour she promises "mostly new material with only maybe 25% from my Netflix special"
Cake Shop Comedy @ Cake Shop
If you miss Big Terrific and Hannibal Buress' Sunday night show at Knit, and are looking for a new free, weekly comedy show that happens in a rock club and sometimes has big name talent stop by unexpectedly, "Cake Shop Comedy" might do the trick. (Aziz Ansari and Louis CK have both stopped by in recent weeks.) 8 PM.

Pharmakon at Saint Vitus in 2013 (more by Fred Pessaro)
Industrial noise-meets-art pop musician Pharmakon played a hometown museum show at The Print Shop at MoMA PS1 on Saturday (1/25) with two local punk bands: the insane (and naked) Dawn of Humans and the Farfisa-filled garage punks Hank Wood and the Hammerheads. Did you go? How was it? Check out (what appear to be) full set videos of all three artists below.
The show was part of MoMA PS1's ongoing Mike Kelley retrospective which Kim Gordon plays this Sunday (2/2). That show is with collaborator Jutta Koether, starts at 4 PM, and tickets are still available.
Pharmakon also plays another NYC show this week at Todd P's new venue Trans Pecos on Wednesday (1/29) (915 Wyckoff Ave, aka the old Silent Barn space). That show is with Faten Kanaan, Jessie Stead, and Angus Tarnawsky.
Bushwick Open Studios happens this weekend (May 31 - June 2) and is "a three day arts and culture festival that celebrates the community's vibrant arts scene with the goal of fostering dialogue and collaboration between local artists and residents." You can wander around the Brooklyn neighborhood and check out local artists' works where they made it. It's free and open to the public. Full artist listings are here.
There is also lots of music going on with BOS as well, which begins with an Official Launch Party at Shea Stadium on Friday (5/31) with Darlings, LODRO, Air Waves, and EULA. Tickets are $10 at the door and includes a Brooklyn Brewery open bar from 8 - 9 PM. More info at the facebook event.
There is also the BOS Music Festival which happens Saturday (6/1) at Don Pedro with The Othermen, Twin Guns and more; and Sunday (6/2) at Lone Wolf with Ken South Rock, Sorceress and more. Full line-ups are below and more info on the event flyer, which is also pictured below.
There's still more. The BOS '13 Electronic Music Showcase happens Saturday night at the Bossa Nova Civics Club with Octo Octa, Datalog, Tomeeo, Nanohumans, and Stephane Bonefant. More info at the facebook event.
On Sunday at Brooklyn Fire Proof East is "Moving On," a "fringe concert series" hosted by composer and performer Ian M. Colletti, (Vaudeville/ Vaudeville Park) and includes performances from Sam Mickens, Yeah Yeah Yeahs' drummer Brian Chase, Deerhoof's Greg Saunier, Dysrythmia's Kevin Hufnagel, Au Revoir Simone's Erika Spring, Sophia Knapp, and lots more. Line-up for that is below and more info at the facebook event.

DOWNLOAD: Young Boys - Love Hits (MP3)
After a 7" in 2011 and a couple tracks released online last year, Brooklyn's Young Boys are set to release their debut album, New York Sun, next week (2/26). The quartet make gloomy, martial-beat post-punk with equal helpings of dissonance and melody. If you like Cold Cave or Merchandise (or '80s stuff like Lords of the New Church and Red Lorry Yellow Lorry) they are worth checking out. You can stream the entire album for the first time below and its mopey/catcy track "Love Hits" is downloadable above.
Young Boys have a couple local shows coming up. They play Saturday (2/23) at Death by Audio with You, Ritual Howls and Faten Kanaan; then their official album release party happens at Glasslands on March 3 with Xray Eyeballs and DJ sets by Brandon of Crocodiles and Punks on Mars. Advance tickets for the Glasslands show are on sale now.
