Nick Lowe in Chicago in 2011 (more by Matt Ziegler)
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Nick Lowe, Los Straightjackets @ Bowery Ballroom
You may remember that Nick Lowe released holiday album, Quality Street, last year. He'll be in the spirit again this year, here for two shows, this being the first.
Wrekmeister Harmonies @ Signal
This year, JR Robinson released a new work with his experimental metal project Wrekmeister Harmonies called Then It All Came Down. Tonight, JR's performing the piece live in NYC with a killer collective that includes members of Slint, Om/Grails, Indian, Liturgy, Bloodliest and more.
Crocodiles, Spacin', Cassie Ramone, Dee Dee (DJ) @ Glasslands
The Glasslands goodbye shows continue, tonight being California transplants Crocodiles who channel JAMC/Spacemen 3 vibes with pop smarts. Dee Dee from Dum Dum Girls will be your DJ for the evening.
Black Breath, Mutilation Rites, White Widows Pact, Blackest @ Saint Vitus
Black Breath fuse together the sounds of death 'n roll and early crossover thrash into a mix that's pretty much whiplash-inducing the whole time. Support comes from a few NYC bands, including local black metal faves Mutilation Rites.
Justin Timberlake @ Barclays Center
As far as pop stars go, few push musical boundaries like Justin Timberlake, whether he's delivering still-futuristic sex love sounds, beating alt-R&B at its own game, or honoring classic pop singers of the past with the choice of covers he works into his sets.
John Waters @ City Winery
If your perspective on the holidays is a little more cynical, chances are John Waters' annual Christmas show will be more up your chimney.
Sunflower Bean, The Due Diligence, Honduras, Happy Lives, Cosmonaut, granny, Holy Tunics @ Baby's All Right
The nice folks at 1.21 Giggawatts have put together this brunchtime show featuring a whole bunch of very good local bands. Drink a bloody mary, catch some music. $5.
Narcissister, Shannon Funchess, Bunny Michael, Melanie Bonajo, People At Parties, Bottoms @ Baby's All Right
This is the second installment of NIGHTSOIL a "Musical Celebration of Our Sexual Psychedelic Power, Uniting the Feminine and the Masculine" featuring a host of performers to "spread love, new perspective, and challenge systematic inequality by UNITING TOGETHER."
Nude Beach, JP5, Shocked Minds @ Union Pool
Nude Beach returned this year with 77, another dose of their rockin' power pop that sounds like it could've come right out of '77. Support comes from two other local rock n roll crews.
Heaters, The Mystery Lights, Savants @ Mercury Lounge
Grand Rapids, MI psych band Heaters fall on the groovy side of the garage, making dancefloor-friendly party rock. Catch them tonight with terrific local band The Mystery Lights.
Invisible Familiars, Sweepstakes @ Union Pool
New York singer songwriter Jared Samuel, who has played with Cibo Matto and Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger, is behind Invisible Familiars. His music is quirky, poppy and danceable as you'll be able to hear when Invisible Familiars' debut album comes out next month via Other Music. This is a free afternoon show (2 PM) in Union Pool's front room.
The Wonder Years, State Champs, Have Mercy, Transit, Candy Hearts, Man Overboard, Crime in Stereo, No Good News, Front Porch Step, Handguns, Light Years, Seaway, Head North, The Sixties, Young and Heartless @ Webster Hall
While pop punk has been having a bit of a resurgence in indie rock lately, this lineup is very POP punk, not exactly Japandroids or anything. That said, there's a few cool outliers on this bill like melodic hardcore band Crime In Stereo and post-hardcore up-and-comers Young & Heartless. And if you like this pop punk stuff at all, few bands do it better than The Wonder Years.
For all of tonight's shows, and tomorrow's, check out our NYC concert calendar.

As previously discussed, Antony, Kembra Pfahler, Johanna Constantine, and Cocorosie's Bianca and Sierra Casady have joined forces to form 'Future Feminism', "a call to arms to reorganize ourselves as a species and affirm archetypally feminine values."
UPDATE: We previously listed the "13 TENETS OF FUTURE FEMINISM" in this spot, but at the repeated request of the artists who tell us the list was not ready to be revealed yet, we have removed it.
A Future Feminism exhibition and event series will be taking place at The Hole (312 Bowery) from Sept 11 - 27, and the lineup for that has now been announced, which includes Marina Abramović, Laurie Anderson, Lydia Lunch, No Bra, and more. Check out the full schedule below.
The opening night reception is on September 11 from 6 - 9 PM and Antony, Kembra Pfahler, Johanna Constantine, and Cocorosie will all be there. They'll also all be performing at the Future Feminism benefit which happens at Webster Hall on Sunday (9/7). Tickets for that are still available.
Full Future Feminism schedule is listed, along with a few more photos like the ones above, below...
Craig Finn in Austin in April (more by Tim Griffin)
As mentioned, Doveman (aka Thomas Bartlett) is doing his final Burgundy Stains Session of 2012 at Le Poisson Rouge on December 13. Since we last spoke, the guests for the show have been revealed: Sandra Bernhard, Yellowbirds, Hannah Cohen, The Perennials, Craig Finn (of The Hold Steady), and Joey Arias. Tickets for that show are still available.
Craig Finn, who recently told us his favorite albums of 2012, is an especially interesting addition to the show, as most collaborators usually have a known connection to Thomas, but this is the first time The Hold Steady and Doveman getting together. As mentioned, you can also catch The Hold Steady playing Wellmont Theatre on New Year's Eve with Lucero and comedian Kurt Braunohler. Tickets for that show are still available.
Joey Arias and Doveman are also teaming up later this month for an End of the World show at Joe's Pub (12/21) with special guests Narcissister, Cornelius Loy (theramin), and the Pixie Harlots, but unfortunately that show is sold out.
Hannah Cohen, who will guest at the LPR show, released her most recent album, Child Bride, this past April via Bella Union. The album featured production by Doveman and some appearances from Sam Amidon and Rob Moose as well. The video for the title track is below. Hannah and Doveman have also already began work on her next record, and she'll be performing some new songs at the show.
That video and a list of all Doveman dates are below.
While we patiently await the arrival of Australia's Kirin J. Callinan to the US during/around CMJ, the spacey, gothic post-punk guitarist has graciously dropped off a new mixtapes of jams to peruse. Spanning thirteen tracks, check out that mixtape for the first time below.
Since we posted about him last, Kirin has added a few NYC shows while here for CMJ. He'll play a live taping of "ESP TV" at Interstate Projects on Saturday (10/13) with Narcissister, Black Marble, Haribo, and Paul Haney.
Then during CMJ, he'll play the Terrible Records CMJ Party with LE1F, True and Regal Degal at Glasslands on 10/16 (tickets); and another Terrible Records party at Shea Stadium on 10/18 with Mirror Mirror, Regal Degal and New Look which is $8 and all-ages.
Then on Monday, October 22 he'll play Bowery Electric with Jack Ladder And The Dreamlanders, Kirin J Callinan, Plastic Flowers, The Dreebs, and Arc & Stones.
Mixtape stream and those dates in list form are below.

Andrew W.K. w/ Fucked Up in Brooklyn on November 5th (more by Jake Forney)
One of the best kept secrets in the entertainment industry, Jonté is known to the stars as a virtuoso choreographer, able to bring out the beast in his clientelle, which includes Beyonce Knowles among others. As a solo act, he brings it on all fronts, executing the freshest moves while spitting the fiercest vocal heard. His unique urban fem style is shattering culture barriers and leaving liberation in its wake. - Santos websiteJonté and a crew of Santos regulars that include Cherie Lily, Bad Brilliance, Narcissister and DJs Roxy Cottontail and Andrew W.K. will be at the club for a party on Thursday, January 28th. Tickets are on sale. We have two pairs of tickets to give away (one of which comes with a bottle of champagne signed by Andrew W.K.). Details are below.
As previously mentioned, Andrew W.K. has quite a bit going on in the coming months. He appears at Joe's Pub on February 11th as part of Gonzales' residency there. He'll be answering your questions at Santos on February 23rd (the same day he releases a new album), and he'll be on Warped Tour this summer.
Andrew W.K. produced a new album for performance artist/cabaret singer/songwriter Baby Dee, though not her next upcoming record A Book of Songs for Anne Marie, which comes out March 23rd on Drag City (pushed back from its original January release date). An album and book with the same name was released by Dee in 2004, but Dee points out "this is a new version of the album, now produced and arranged by Maxim Moston from Antony and the Johnsons." The album Andrew worked on does not yet have a name or release date. He has also played as part of Baby Dee's band in the past,
On February 4th Andrew will be part of "We Sing Baby Dee! #3," a night at Joe's Pub organized by composer Sxip Shirey and dedicated to "Interpretations of the songs of Baby Dee." Also performing will be Corn Mo, Little Annie and Paul Wallfisch, Curtis Eller, Aimee Curl, Lance Horne, Mathew and Sarah, Philip Raia and Lila, "a special guest appearance by 9 year old singer Frankky Lou Hightower from Kansas City" and Baby Dee herself. Tickets are on sale.
Baby Dee will also be performing at The Stone the next night (2/5) with cellist Matthew Robinson. Baby Dee will be touring extensively this February and March in Europe and April and May in North America.
