Blood Orange at Central Park in August (more by Amanda Hatfield)
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Julian Casablancas + The Voidz, Shabazz Palaces, Blood Orange @ Hammerstein Ballroom
Maybe Julian Casablancas has never made another record on par with the first two Strokes albums, but you gotta at least give him credit for trying something new and totally out there on his new album with The Voidz. Plus, the two openers alone would be an unmissable double bill.
Interpol, Lip Talk @ Terminal 5
On the other hand, Julian's fellow turn-of-the-millenium flag-bearers of NYC cool, Interpol, have not changed it up on their new album. But if Interpol doing what Interpol does best is what you seek, you've probably already got tickets for tonight. Night 2 of 3 and all of them are sold out.
Blonde Redhead, People Get Ready @ Bowery Ballroom
NYC indie greats Blonde Redhead have tackled dream pop, noise rock, synth pop and more in their 20+ year career, and returned this year with their ninth album, Barragán. Tonight's the first of three NYC shows on this tour, all with different openers. This one's got the eclectic People Get Ready.
Hundred Waters, Mutual Benefit (solo) @ Rough Trade
Hundred Waters are supporting Interpol's current tour, including last night's and tomorrow's Terminal 5 shows, but tonight they're taking the chance to headline their own smaller show in NYC. Opening the show is a solo set from Mutual Benefit main man Jordan Lee, whose layered art pop is pretty likeminded to Hundred Waters.
The Blind Shake, Caddywhompus, Monograms @ Cake Shop
With a new album on Castle Face that is their rawest cut of animal beat garage proto-punk yet, The Blind Shake barrel into NYC for two shows. Tonight's the first.
Nels Cline & Julian Lage @ SubCulture
Guitar great Nels Cline is best-known for playing with Wilco but is an improvisational wiz as well. Out this week is Room, his collaborative album with avant jazz guitarist, Julian Lage. The pair celebrate its release tonight.
Ex Cops, Ski Lodge, LODRO, Dinowalrus @ Glasslands
We're now basically in the last month of Glasslands' existence and this is one of the special farewell shows they've put together, full of some of Brooklyn's superior indie pop talent.
For all of tonight's shows, and tomorrow's, check out our NYC concert calendar.
For laughs, check out the NYC Comedy calendar too.

Americana powerpop band End of Love existed in the early '00s in NYC. Original members Jay Deegan, Jennifer Groves, and Irwin Menken reformed the band with a couple additions you may recognize: Wilco's Nels Cline on guitar and Big Star's Jody Stephens on drums. The band's forthcoming new album, Ghosts on the Radio, was recorded in Memphis' Ardent Studios and also features appearances from Wilco's John Striatt from Lee Ranaldo (Menken spent time in Lee's band who has opened for Wilco whose members have also played with Jody in Golden Smog). You can stream "100 Years" from it below.
The new lineup of End of Love will be making their live debut in NYC on July 17 at The Bowery Electric with The Tall Pines, Margo Valiante and Chris Lind on the bill as well. Tickets are on sale now.
That Bowery Electric show is one of a few coming for NYC duo The Tall Pines whose new EP, Black Ribbon, is out next week (6/24). They play a show as part of the Hudson Square Music & Wine Festival on August 19 with Sweetback Sisters, and other places listed below..
Meanwhile, Nels Cline, who just the other day performed with the Les Paul Trio at Iridium and at the Ornette Coleman tribute in Prospect Park, kicks off a North American tour with Julian Lage this week. The tour begins Friday (6/20) at Single Cut Beersmiths in Queens.
