You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Samothrace, Unearthly Trance, Trenchgrinder, Beefrot @ Saint Vitus
Seattle sludgesters Samothrace's most recent release is this year's Live At Roadburn, which is worth picking up, but of course nothing beats actually seeing them live. You can do that tonight, and this show is also of note because it's the first show back for Brooklyn faves Unearthly Trace since going on hiatus in 2012.
Face to Face, Ambitions @ Bowery Ballroom
It's the third and final night in Face to Face's NYC run, and tonight they'll be playing their 1996 self-titled LP in full. Support comes from Ambitions, the melodic hardcore band formed out of the ashes of With Honor in the mid-2000s whose only album is 07's Stranger on Bridge 9.
Treasure Fleet, Shellshag, Big Eyes, Past Life @ Saint Vitus
Treasure Fleet include members of The Arrivals, The Lawrence Arms and The Smoking Popes, and they inject their punk background with a dose of '60s psych pop. Tonight's their last of three NYC-area shows this weekend, and there's excellent support from local DIY regulars Shellshag and hard-hitting punk trio Big Eyes.
Gracie, Blonde Elvis, Shark?, Gingerlys @ Palisades
Jesse James Laderoute is a maintstay in the quirkier side of Toronto's music scene, having played drums for Slim Twig, collaborated with Ell V Gore, and his own band Young Mother. His current concern is Blonde Elvis who make off-kilter glam somewhere between Brian Eno and Pulp. This is an all-around good bill with Shark?'s '90s-ish indie rock and jangly shoegazers Gingerlys.
French Horn Rebellion, Mainland, Violet Sands, DJ Lady Guy @ Riis Park Beach Bazaar
Brooklyn Night Bazaar had it's final night last night, but the folks behind just opened Riis Park Beach Bazaar this weekend in the Rockaways. There's shopping, yummy food options, beverages, and live music. Today's entertainment is headlined by entertaining dance duo French Horn Rebellion. (Originally we had Computer Magic listed for today; that is on Memorial Day.)
Mary Epworth @ Living Room
Mary Epworth is, at this point, known mostly for being the sister of producer Paul Epworth, who has worked with Adele, Florence & the Machine, Bloc Party and more. That may change as her 2012 debut album, Dream Life, gets a very belated US release this week. Her blend of baroque pop and West Coast folky psychedelia is appealing.
Jozef van Wissem, Alexander Turnquist @ Littlefield
While some may know lutenist Jozef van Wissem best as a collaborator of Jim Jarmusch, he's also a great artist on his own. Tonight's show is doubly good because guitar wiz Alexander Turnquist is opening with a set of his very impressive fretwork.
Daniel Bachman, Ignatz, Itasca, Sarah Louise @ Union Pool
Speaking of guitar wizzes, American Primitivism musician Daniel Bachman is one himself, and he headlines this Union Pool show tonight. It's worth getting there for Itasca, who makes psych folk reminiscent of Vashti Bunyan, Sibylle Baier and other '60s/'70s cult singers.
It's the third and final day of electronic festival Mysteryland, which takes place at the original location of Woodstock (Bethel Woods Center for the Arts), and today's lineup includes Diplo, Dillon Francis, Moon Boots, The Martinez Brothers, iLoveMakonnen, Giraffage, Bondax, Classixx, Anna Lunoe, Sweater Beats, and more.

More of Cake Shop's 10th anniversary "super shows" have been announced. Next Friday (5/22) it'll be Condo Fucks (aka Yo La Tengo in cover band mode), plus a couple more veteran NY-area indie rock acts, Antietam and Speed the Plough (which counts Feelies drummer Stanley Demeski as a member). Tickets are on sale now. (Will advance tickets for Cake Shop be a regular thing? They did finally redo their website.)
Then on Saturday, May 22 it's a bunch of Cake Shop faves: Juan Wauters, Air Waves, My Teenage Stride, Green Pages, and Paper Fleet. That show is $10 at the door. Flyers below.
As mentioned, this Friday (May 15) is Obnox and the bill now also includes PC Worship, Rips and Endless Boogie. No advance tickets for that one. On Saturday night (5/16) it's Nude Beach, OCDPP (aka OJ from Xray Eyeballs, Cassie Ramone and Dee Dee of Dum Dum Girls), Weird Womb, Cold Waste and Young Ruins. Both of those shows are $10 at the door.
The final weekend of super shows (May 29 & 30) will be announced on Friday, but the last night of the month (Sunday, May 31) is a staff party that's open to everyone.
Not a "super show" but interesting: Mary Epworth, sister of Paul Epworth (producer of Adele, Bloc Party & more) plays Cake Shop on May 24 with Dominique Leone, Thomas Dimuzio, and Nick Didkovsky. You can check out the video for Mary Epworth's "Long Gone" below. And don't forget that Cake Shop will also host NYC Popfest on May 28 with Beverly, Young Romace, Wildhoney Roman a Clef, and Souvinir Stand (tickets).

This month's issue of UK music magazine MOJO features a free CD titled Rumours Revisted, a tribute to Fleetwood Mac's landmark 1977 album, Rumours. (Not the first time a Fleetwood Mac tribute album came out this year.) The compilation features covers by Yeasayer, Liars, Julia Holter, Pure Bathing Culture, The Besnard Lakes, Dylan LeBlanc, and more. You can stream Yeasayer's take on "Second Hand News" and Liars' reworking of "The Chain" below, and to hear the rest of the album, you might have to get your hands on a copy of the new issue of MOJO or scour the internet for a download. (Side note: I've always wanted to hear 2007-era Yeasayer cover "The Chain" but I guess some things will have to remain up to the imagination...)
Over the summer, Fleetwood Mac revealed plans to tour in 2013. Details for that have still not been announced but the band continue to show signs that the tour is on the way. In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Lindsey Buckingham revealed that he'd also like to record with Fleetwood Mac again:
"Absolutely, absolutely I would," he says of creating a new album. "In fact, about six, seven months ago, John [McVie] and Mick [Fleetwood] were over here and we actually cut some tracks, and we did enough for maybe half an album. But you gotta get Stevie [Nicks] on board with that, and at the time, she was really quite caught up in what she was doing . . . but I would love to do that because John and Mick were playing their asses off."The band last released Say You Will in 2003.
