You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Joanna Newsom, Alela Diane & Ryan Francesconi @ Kings Theatre
Joanna Newsom finally returned from a five-year break of making albums with this year's Divers. At first, it seemed a bit more conventional her prior releases, but it reveals itself to be just as complex and gripping. Tonight's her first of two NYC shows. Opening is Alela Diane and Ryan Francesconi (who's worked with Joanna), who recently put out a collaborative album.
Deerhunter, Atlas Sound @ Rough Trade
Deerhunter's new album has them returning to the dream/psychedelic pop sounds of Halcyon Digest after a trip into rawer garage rock territory on Monomania. Tonight's their first of three NYC shows in support of it. Deerhunter co-frontman Bradford Cox's great solo project Atlas Sound opens.
The World Is A Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid To Die, Animal Flag @ Baby's All Right
TWIABP released one of the very best rock albums of this year with Harmlessness, a lushly-arranged post rock/indie rock/emo album written from a deeply personal perspective. Their recent live shows are at least as good as the record.
Dinosaur Jr. & special guests @ Bowery Ballroom
One of the quintessential American indie rock bands, Dinosaur Jr. celebrate their 30th anniversary with seven shows at Bowery Ballroom. Each night they're play their debut album in full with an additional set filled with special guests.
Nothing Changes Party w/Consumer Electronics, Yellow Tears, Alberich, Copley Medal @ Saint Vitus
Nothing Changes has been branching out of its normal Wednesday/Home Sweet Home confines and presents this show tonight headlined by Consumer Electronics, the current group from power electronics pioneer Philip Best (Whitehouse), who recently released the brutal Dollhouse Songs.
Night Train w/ Wyatt Cenac @ Littlefield (2 shows)
After years of being merely a great live show, Wyatt Cenac is turning "Night Train" into a web series. Tonight features two tapings: the early with Sasheer Zamata, Sabrina Jalees, Matteo Lane, Phoebe Robinson, Jeffrey Joseph, and Jean Grae; and the late show is with Kurt Braunohler, Hari Kondabolu, Maeve Higgins, Josh Gondelman, and more. Both are sold out.

We just wrote about the Sixth Annual Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival, and here's another comedy festival and this one hits next week: The Brooklyn Comedy Festival. It's being held at a variety of venues in the general Williamsburg area from August 19 - 24.
According to the festival organizers, it will include a mix of sketch, improv, and standup and features some strong local comedians, such as Chris Gethard (who traveled to Lollapalooza with us just a week ago), The Lucas Bros., Dan St. Germaine, Calise Hawkins, Mike Lawrence, Nimesh Patel, and more. Schedule is at the BCF website and full performer list and show dates are listed below.
Wyatt Cenac at Prospect Park, August 2012 (more by Jessica Amaya)
In a post titled "Starting Mondays in November until Littlefield realizes they've made a huge mistake", Wyatt Cenac, who spent this weekend at Fun Fun Fun Fest, details the plans that will likely drive Gowanus venue Littlefield toward financial and social ruin.
Comedian Wyatt Cenac ("The Daily Show," "King of the Hill") and Producer Marianne Ways ("Hot Tub with Kurt and Kristen"), in conjunction with Littlefield, are proud to announce the start of new weekly comedy showcase NIGHT TRAIN WITH WYATT CENAC. Hosted by Brooklyn-based comedy favorite Wyatt Cenac, the show will feature comedy from the best local and international stand up comedians, and will at times feature new and established musicians, local celebrities, and occasional surprises that can only be found in Gowanus.Night Train begins today (11/5) at Littlefield with special guests Eugene Mirman, Jessi Klein, Jeffrey Joseph and J.R. Havlan, and tickets are still available. Tickets are also on sale for shows through the better portion of 2012, including on 11/12 with Gary Gulman, Jerrod Carmichael, Seaton Smith, Erin Judge "+ more".
Of course all of this reconfirms the end of Kurt and Kristen's weekly Hot Tub Variety Show at Littlefield, which held its last Monday show in October. RIP to Hot Tub, but we're looking forward to Night Train.
