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

Phosphorescent @ Webster Hall
Fresh off appearances at Sasquatch and Boston Calling festivals, Matthew Houck and crew finish off the weekend with this show. If you haven't checked out out last year's Muchacho, he takes Phosphorescent's Brooklyn country into pleasingly experimental territory.

Red Fang, Big Business, American Sharks @ MHOW
Three hits of stoner rock at Music Hall of Williamsburg tonight from Red Fang, Big Business and American Sharks who all bring the seriously Big Riffs.

Yonatan Gat, Tonstartssbandht, Yvette @ Baby's All Right
Yonatan Gat of Monotonix celebrates the release of his solo debut EP, Iberian Passage -- inspired by Brazilian cult band Os Mutantates and the improvisational spirit of Miles Davis -- tonight with two very solid openers.

Torn Hawk, Regal Degal, The Future of What, Limited @ Cameo Gallery
Torn Hawk is the moniker of Brooklyn's Luke Wyatt, who makes instrumental electronic music with chillwave-style nostalgia but a knack for more experimental sounds too (he namedrops Sonic Youth, Glenn Branca, Philip Glass, and Steve Reich as formative influences). Opening act Limited is Alex Craig from Big Troubles and Ducktails in Big '80s synthpop/R&B mode.

Onion Flavored Rings, Shellshag, Girl Crush @ Death by Audio
Among the bands playing DbA tonight is NYC DIY veterans Shellshag who are always worth catching.

Hauschka, Jeffrey Zeigler @ Glasslands
German musician Hauschka's roots are in techno, but for this project he utilizes prepared pianos, a concept made famous by John Cage and others, though Hauschka claims he wasn't familiar with Cage when he first came up with the idea to do so.

Echo Friendly @ Rough Trade
Brooklyn duo Echo Friendly make unabashedly pop music, full of ringing guitars and "whoa oh" choruses. Think Guards shrunk down to two very energetic people.

Total Slacker, Future Death, Sunflower Bean @ The Studio at Webster Hall
Brooklyn '90s lovers Total Slacker hit The Studio at Webster Hall tonight for another hometown gig.

Skyzoo & Torae "Barrel Brothers" album release @ The Wick
Brooklyn rapper Skyzoo has a new collaborative album with Torae out today which features production from Oh No, Illmind, Black Milk, DJ Premier and others, plus guest spots from Sean Price, Guilty Simpson, Blu and more. Tonight they celebrate at The Wick.

Ratos de Porao, Hank Wood and the Hammerheads, Warthog @ 538 Johnson
Hardcore/thrash vets Ratos de Porao just played MDF, but before they head back to Brazil they'll team up with two of NYC's finest in punk for this last-minute show tonight.

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

Torn Hawk at Warsaw - 5/18/14 (more by PSquared)
Torn Hawk

Torn Hawk is the moniker of Brooklyn's Luke Wyatt, who makes instrumental electronic music with chillwave-style nostalgia but a knack for more experimental sounds too (he namedrops Sonic Youth, Glenn Branca, Philip Glass, and Steve Reich as formative influences). He's also got equally nostalgic videos which splice together old '80s VHS clips. You can watch some of those below.

We just caught Torn Hawk opening for Panda Bear in Brooklyn this past weekend, and his next show here will be headlining Cameo on Tuesday (5/27) with Regal Degal, Future of What and Limited. Tickets for that show are on sale now. He also has a couple European dates happening in September, which are listed below.

Doing visuals for Torn Hawk at that show was another NYC electronic artist Ari Russo, or just Russo, who also records for Torn Hawk's Valcrond Video label. His new EP, Wild Metals, comes out on that label on June 19. You can watch the video for one of its tracks, "Purple Earth" (also with very '80s clips) below, and download another track, "Zishethe," above via XLR8R.

List of Torn Hawk dates, with those videos, below...

Pains

Mac DeMarco at M for Montreal 2013 (more by Ellie Pritts)
Mac

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

Motion Studies, Fasano, Imperial Topaz, Puppy Cops @ Baby's All Right
It's a diverse night of local music at Baby's tonight with the funky GODMODE-signed Motion Studies, piano singer/songrwriter Fasano, ambient pop duo Imperial Topaz, and Puppy Cops.

James Vincent McMorrow, Aidan Knight @ Bowery Ballroom
James Vincent McMorrow isn't the most original songwriter (Bon Iver and James Blake seem like obvious influences), but he can write some pretty gorgeous music. Tonight's his first of three NYC shows this week, all of which are sold out.

Gurus, Future of What, Icewater, Snowday @ Death By Audio
A less noisy night than DbA usually hosts, the rhythm-heavy Gurus (members of Rahim and Your Nature) headline. Icewater, who are also Eleanor Friedberger's backing band, make lovely guitar-and-synth pop on their own.

London Grammar, Vancouver Sleep Clinic, Haerts @ Irving Plaza
London Grammar's career got a boost when they contributed to the Disclosure LP, but they're flying pretty high off their solo material as well. We at BV are happy to present tonight's sold-out NYC show on their current tour.

Laura Mvula, PHOX @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
British singer Laura Mvula makes excellent boundary-pushing pop that's comparable to Jesse Ware or Janelle Monae. Tonight she plays NYC ahead of her Coachella appearance, and this show is sold out.

Langhorne Slim & The Law, The Felice Brothers, The Districts @ Rough Trade
It's a triple dose of folk/blues/roots rock at Rough Trade tonight from Langhorne Slim & The Law, The Felice Brothers, and The Districts.

Kristeen Young, Tansu, Baby Teardrops @ The Bowery Electric
Kristeen has a had a regular gig for the last few year's as Morrissey's go-to opener. Here's a chance to see her without some drunk person screaming "HOW SOON IS NOW!!!" in your ear. It's her first of four April residency shows gearing up for...yet another Morrissey tour.

The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Parquet Courts @ The Greene Space
This is the first night of the two-night Gigstock, which mixes"showcase-length sets with conversation." It's a good double bill tonight too and both groups are sure to be playing new material from their forthcoming albums. Sold out, but you can stream it online.

Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra @ Union Pool
You may know that Thee Silver Mt. Zion share members with Godspeed You! Black Emperor, but post-rock is only a minor element here, not to say it isn't still epic, gripping music. Tonight's their last of three NYC shows total this week, and totally sold out.

Mac DeMarco, Amen Dunes, Juan Wauters (of The Beets), Tonstartssbandht @ Webster Hall
With his third album, Salad Days, out now, Mac plays his second sold-out NYC show this week.

Immortal Technique, Brother Ali @ Highline Ballroom
Fellow "conscious" rappers Immortal Technique and Brother Ali bring the tour they're on together to Highline Ballroom for their first of two NYC shows this week.

Big Terrific Comedy Show @ Cameo Gallery
Max Silvestri hosts the free weekly comedy show in the back of Williamsburg's Lovin' Cup. Tonight's talent includes Mike Cannon, Nick Vatterott, Michelle Wolf, Neal Stastny.

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