Waxahatchee at Sasquatch 2014 (more by Chris & Rae Graham)
Beverly @ BVCMJ 2014 (more by Chris La Putt)
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Waxahatchee, Steve Gunn, The Goodbye Party, Weyes Blood @ Glasslands
It's one of your last chances to get to Glasslands before it closes, and of all these final shows this lineup is especially hard to pass up. Waxahatchee's been previewing stuff off her upcoming album lately so maybe we'll hear some of that. Steve Gunn will bring the psych folk and his impressive fretwork, The Goodbye Party will bring the lo-fi pop, and Weyes Blood provides the evening with some all-star pipes.
Dave Hill, Valley Lodge, Todd Barry, Janeane Garofalo, Bridget Everett, Chris Distefano, Larry Murphy @ The Bell House
This is Dave Hill's monthly show "Meet Me in the Bathroom and Tell Me All Your Secrets," though for the holidays they've moved from the bathroom to "under the mistletoe." He's pulled together quite a line-up too.
Public Access TV, Beverly, Crocodiles (Brandon DJ Set), The Pains of Being Pure at Heart (Kip DJ Set), DJBP, DJ Lio Kanine @ Baby's All Right
It's the Kanine Records holiday party, featuring live sets from Public Access TV, Beverly and Sleigher (actually Jamaica Queens) in the performance room, and a host of DJs (including Kip of TPOBPAH and BV's Bill Pearis) in the front. It's free with RSVP.
FaltyDL, Braille, Dave Q, Funafuji, Seafloor, Nooka Jones @ Cameo
Percussion Lab is having their holiday party at Cameo tonight with a pretty stacked lineup that includes at least two of NY's finest beatmakers, FaltyDL and Braille (of Sepalcure). It starts at 10 PM and is totally free.
Prince Rupert's Drops, Weird Owl, Rhyton @ Union Pool
It's a full night of different types of psych at Union Pool tonight, with the '60s pop style of Prince Rupert's Drops, the space-y Weird Owl, and the Middle Eastern-tinged Rhyton.
Olivia Jean, The Dough Rollers @ Rough Trade
This totally free Third Man Records-presented show features two of their artists: Black Belles singer Olivia Jean, who put out her garage/rockabilly debut solo LP this year, and the rootsy Dough Rollers who put out an EP recently. We're not sure if Jack himself will be there, but maybe he'll show up virtually.
The Foreign Exchange, Natasha Diggs, OP! @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
The Foreign Exchange is the long-running hip hop duo of Little Brother's Phonte and producer Nicolay. They're not supporting a new album at the moment but last released Love in Flying Colors in 2013. Tonight's show is free with RSVP (which is now closed).
Aimee Mann, Ted Leo, Susanna Hoffs, Jonathan Coulton @ Tarrytown Music Hall
Aimee Mann and Ted Leo (who collaborate as The Both) will bring their Christmas show to NYC proper on Saturday, but there's two other shows in the area before that including tonight's in Westchester. Helping them get in the holiday spirit is Susannah Hoffs of The Bangles and geek rocker Jonathan Coulton.
Gabriel Kahane @ BAM
Composer/singer-songwriter Gabriel Kahane, who's collaborated with Rufus Wainwright, Sufjan Stevens, Blake Mills and others, is performing his newest work, The Ambassador, from December 13-10 at BAM with fellow Sufjan collaborators Rob Moose, Alex Sopp (both of yMusic), and Casey Foubert, as well as Ted Poor, Laura Lutzke, Nathan Schram, and Gabriel Cabezas (also of yMusic).

Built to Spill at BV-SXSW 2012 (more by Ryan Barkan)
Browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows. Here are some highlights...
James Blake, Nosaj Thing @ Terminal 5
Mercury Prize winner James Blake returns to NYC for his second two-night run at Terminal 5 of 2013 tonight. If you haven't seen him yet, don't let his downtempo sounds fool you into thinking it'll be a boring show; even in a live setting James has been anything but. Nosaj Thing opens and is worth catching too. This is night 2.
Deer Tick, Robert Ellis @ Webster Hall
Twangy bar rockers Deer Tick always bring a beers-raised good time, and with their fifth album Negativity out now, they've got plenty of material to choose from (and they're not too shy to throw in a few covers either).
Skream, MK, Oneman, Curses, Route 94 @ Output (BEMF pre-party)
The Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival starts tomorrow, but tonight there's a pre-show at Output (which doubles as their weekly INPUT party) headlined by dubstep pioneer Skream. The openers aren't too shabby either, especially including Detroit house vet MK.
Fat History Month, Celestial Shore, Krill, Palehound @ Death by Audio
This is a great all-around bill for indie rock fans with the fuzz-folky Fat History Month, mathy indie pop band Celestial Shore, eccentric rockers Krill, and noisy singer/songwriter Palehound.
Hank Wood and the Hammerheads, Anasazi, Koward @ 538 Johnson
Hank Wood and the Hammerheads combine organ-filled garage rock with furious, classic-style hardcore punk, and it makes for some super-fun live shows. NYC's intense, gothy post-punks Anasazi are not to miss either, and for Boston hardcore band Koward, this is their first NYC show in two years.
B-52s @ Brooklyn Bowl
These new wave survivors remain basically a party in a can, and they'll be popping the top tonight.
John Hodgman @ Union Hall
Erudite funnyman John Hodgman has one of his "Secret Society" shows tonight. Clearly the secret is out -- it's sold out.
Built To Spill, Slam Dunk, The Warm Hair @ Irving Plaza
Buit to Spill are kings of jammy music for people who don't like jammy music, courtesy three of the '90s greatest indie rock albums.
Born Ruffians, Twin Peaks @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Canadians rock outfit Born Ruffians are currently touring in support of new album Birthmarks. If you're going tonight, do get there early to see Chicago's punky/catchy Twin Peaks.
Federico Aubele, Leif Vollebekk @ Littlefield
Argentine singer-songwriter Federico Aubele blends dub, ambient, tango and other genres into a sound all his own; Canadian Leif Vellebekk falls a little more into traditional singer-songerwriter territory.
Lazy, The Hairs, Lame Drivers @ Cake Shop
Kansas City group Lazy do not sound like their name, making speed-fueled, melodic punk that might've fit in the early-'80s LA scene. They're playing with punkish locals Lame Drivers and The Hairs.
Slava, Phedre, Rioux, Rimar @ 285 Kent
This installment of the multi-sensory electronic music party Connect includes schizophrenic producer Slava, experimental indie duo Phedre (mems. Doldrums and Hooded Fang), psychedelic dance producer Rioux, and funky chillwaver Rimar.
Rudimental @ Bowery Ballroom
UK dance four-piece Rudimental are bringing their pop-house party to NYC for two sold-out nights this week. Tonight is the second.
Ital, Shumi, Nooka Jones @ Bossa Nova Civic Club
Ital has his roots in abrasive punk bands, and though that may not come across in the electronic music of his current project, it does when he delivers on stage and never settles for being a standstill knob-turner.
Tod Seelie's 'Bright Nights' book party w/ Japanther, The So So Glos, Unstoppable Death Machines, Ken South Rock, Amour Obscur @ Silent Barn
This is a party for Tod Seelie's new book Bright Nights, which documents 14 years of photographing the undersides of New York City life, with a bunch of local rock bands, which should make for a pretty good time.
Heliotropes, Flown, Black Lagoon, Beech Creeps @ Acheron
Fuzzy NYC rockers Heliotropes got their debut album out earlier this year, and continue to do a ton of local shows. Tonight they're at Brooklyn punk club Acheron.

Sepalcure at LPR - 12/30/12 (via Heathered Pearls)
Sepalcure (aka Machinedrum and Braille) just played a NYC show at Le Poisson Rouge (pictured above) right before 2012 wrapped up (12/30) after their tour with Shlohmo came to a close. Machinedrum stuck around for one more NYC show last week before heading over to Europe, but Braille is still around and will play a NYC show this Friday (1/11) at Cameo with Archie Pelago, Contakt, Nooka Jones, and Enoe. Admission for that show is $8 at the door or $5 with RSVP.
The show is a release party for Cambio, the compilation album by Percussion Lab which features songs by Sepalcure, Braille, Machinedrum, Shigeto, Daedelus (who's touring soon), Mux Mool, and more. You can stream that compilation in its entirety, along with a few other Braille tracks, below.
