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

"Feel the Bern" @ Baby's All Right
A cavalcade of talent comes out to support Bernie Sanders' 2016 presidential bid at the two-night event. Tonight's lineup features Jana Hunter, Frankie Cosmos, Kevin Devine, Jamie Kilstein, Will Sheff, Dead Heavens, Spirit Family Reunion, Kat Wright & Brett Hughes, DJ Hiro Kone....and maybe Bernie himself will show up? We shall see.

Bridget Everett @ Joe's Pub
Bridget Everett's acclaimed (and highly irreverent) show "Rock Bottom" returns to Joe's Pub for four shows this week.

Hinds @ Other Music
Spanish garage rock band Hinds release their debut album this week and celebrate at this in-store tonight. Free, but Other Music is tiny...get there early.

So Hideous, A Film in Color, Nightcrawler, Sonrot @ Saint Vitus
So Hideous returned in 2015 with the very good album Laurestine, which combines atmospheric black metal with serious orchestral arrangements. They're saying this may be their only NYC show of 2016, so catch 'em while you can.

Enforcer, Warbringer, Cauldron, Exmortus, Surgical Strike @ Gramercy Theatre
Sweden's trad-style speed metallers are over on our shores on a co-headlining tour with California thrashers Warbringer. They make their way to NYC tonight.

'2 Dope Queens' w/ Jessica Williams, Phoebe Robinson, Roy Wood Jr., Jean Grae, Dave Hill @ Union Hall
The Daily Show's Jessica Williams and Broad City's Phoebe Robinson's show '2 Dope Queens' is "a monthly stand-up and storytelling show," and this month guests include The Daily Show's Roy Wood Jr, rapper Jean Grae, and comedian/rocker Dave Hill.

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. Tonight begins Jo Firestone's January residency and will also feature Wendi Starling, Chris Thayer, Jermaine Fowler, Kevin Avery and Sasheer Zamata.

Ronnie Spector @ City Winery
The onetime Ronette had to postpone her annual holiday shows in December and are being made up now. Her hits (holiday or otherwise) sound great any time of year. UPDATE: Tonight's show was just canceled.

Tim Kuhl's 1982, Aaron Roche, Kyle Forester @ Union Pool
You may know Kyle Forester as keyboardist in Crystal Stilts and The Ladybug Transistor, but he makes music on his own, too, and will release his solo debut in April.

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

Aziz Ansari & Chris Rock @ Whiplash @ UCB last week
Aziz and Chris Rock

UCB Theater Chelsea's Monday night staple comedy jam session Whiplash still happens every Monday night at 11:00pm. Sadly, for old man Kinski, 11pm is just a tooouuucccchhhhh too late to be out and about galavanting with some of comedy's greatest talents these days. Which is sad, because you never know who will show up to perform, and those who do show up will usually blow your mind. For example, the Monday November 19th installment featured Chris Rock, Aziz Ansari, Simon Amstell and Anthony Jeselnik. Holy.

Chris Rock (pictured above with Aziz at Whiplash), good pals with Louis CK, also recently made a surprise appearance for Louis at his Staten Island Sandy Benefit Shows on November 17th.

But before the next Whiplash, the UCB Theater in Chelsea will be playing host to an awesome Sandy Benefit show on Sunday November 25th at 9:30pm. The line-up is festooned with so many Klaus favorites. $15 not only gets you piece of mind knowing you are helping out people whose lives were turned upside-down by hurricane Sandy, but you get performances by Arden Myrin, W. Kamau Bell (Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell on FX), Seth Herzog, Dave Hill, Jamie Kilstein, Janine Brito, Kevin Avery, Sara Benincasa, C.F. Lederer, and Chris Gethard (who by the way has a small part in the very last episode of Bored to Death) (I just watched it the other day and was reminded of that important fact). The show will be hosted by Nato Green.

Dave Hill & Tig Notaro
Dave Hill and Tig Notaro

And speaking of Dave Hill and the UCB Theater in Chelsea, prepare yourselves for another fantastic installment of The Dave Hill Explosion which will take place on Thursday November 29th at 9:30pm. Dave's special guest will be Tig Notaro (who recently released a CD via Louis CK) and more. We all know Dave Hill is one of NYC's best comedians, guitar players, and show reviewers, but the Explosion is always a truly epic experience where Dave REALLY shines. The Dave Hill Explosion is a long-running live talk show hosted by Dave Hill. He doesn't do it that often but when he does it's awesome. One of the greatest shows I've ever seen was the Explosion that featured Rufus Wainwright and Dick Cavett. Holy.

Meanwhile you can find Dave Hill TONIGHT (11/24) at UCB East as part of "If You Build It", and check out Dave Hill's latest podcast featuring Chris Elliott. And don't forget that you can catch Chris Elliott at the Bell House on December 7th as part of Ted Leo and Tom Scharpling's epic and now totally sold out Sandy Benefit. You can also see him at the Pit with his daughters Abby and Bridey Elliott on Thursday December 6th at Running Late with Scott Rogowsky.

Hoity-Toity gastro-comedy joint The Stand will be hosting a rather impressive Sandy benefit called MTV Presents Stand up for Sandy on Tuesday November 27th. The line-up features Jim Gaffigan, Wyatt Cenac, Nikki Glaser, Sara Schaefer and Sean Patton. The tickets are a super reasonably priced $20 and are currently on sale. And for those keeping score, Sean Patton and Sarah Schaefer are two of my favorite and definitely underrated comedians in the biz. This might be THE show that gets your man Klaus out of his comfort zone and into The Stand.

Jim Gaffigan also has other bigger area shows coming up.

Wyatt Cenac (who also performs in the sold out Sandy Benefit show at the Bell House this Sunday November 25th) continues his new Monday night residency at Littlefield on Monday November 26th and every Monday. As a matter of fact, Har Mar Superstar is musical guest this Monday November 26th.

And speaking of Littlefield, celebrate Christmas Eve there with Wyatt Cenac because it looks like it will be a special night with guests Janeane Garofalo, Michael Che (who also plays the sold out show at Bell House this Sunday), and more already announced. But before that, on Sunday December 9th Littlefield will be hosting Concert & Comedy For Sandy Animals: Benefit for the Sean Casey Animal Rescue with comedy by Michael Showalter and Jena Friedman, and music by Supercute, Casey Shea and more.

For more upcoming shows check out Eugene Mirman's schedule, Pete Holmes & Doug Benson's tour dates, Nick Kroll's tour dates, Greg Proops, and a big list of upcoming shows at the Bell House (and HERE).
