John Grant @ LPR, April 2013 (more by PSquared Photography)
John Grant

Browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows. Here are some highlights...

John Grant @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
With his second album reeling in the year-end accolades, John Grant plays his biggest NYC show yet. This is a special, stripped-down show but his powerful pipes and stage presence will probably make up for anything missing in the arrangements. If you can't make tonight's shows, he's also playing Tuesday at Rough Trade, free entry with purchase of his new CD.

Jagwar Ma @ Rough Trade
With a debut album that owes more than a little to the early-'90s Madchester rave scene, Jagwar Ma will be twistin' your mellon (man) with sunshine vibes to spare.

Small Reactions, Medals, Nicole Mercedes & The Affair, Coastgaard @ Pianos
Atlanta's Small Reactions make noisy, heart-on-sleeve indiepop a la The Wedding Present or Orange Juice -- check out their swell 2011 single "Nerve Pop" below.

Mutual Benefit @ Other Music
Mutual Benefit combine Sufjan style chamber pop with Antlers-style vocals and a bit of Microphones-y noise. Their debut album, initially self-released, gets wider distribution through Other Music Recording Co. this week. Tonight they celebrate on Other Music's home turf. Free.

Los Lobos @ City Winery
Celebrating their 40th anniversary, Mexican-American rock vets Los Lobos just released a live album, Deconstructed in New York, which was recorded at City Winery last year. Tonight's the last of three sold-out shows at City Winery.

Radiolab Live @ Beacon Theatre
Once again, WNYC/NPR show Radiolab has taken its show on the road, this time with an event they're calling "Apocalyptical." In addition to hosts Jad Abumrad and Robert Krulwich, they've brought along musicians Noveller and On Filmore, plus comedian Ophira Eisenberg for their patented blend of science, music and humor.

Night Train with Wyatt Cenac @ Littlefield
Get on board Wyatt Cenac's weekly Night Train comedy show, this week with Seaton Smith, Courtney Fearrington, Ayanna Dookie, Stavros Halkias and more.

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

Browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows. Here are some highlights...

The Julie Ruin, Priests @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Kathleen Hanna's new band The Julie Ruin simply cannot be slowed down. They're already played quite a few NYC shows this year, and they keep selling them out (like tonight's). Opening the show is a killer DC band who probably owe a thing or two to Kathleen Hanna, and who just made quite the impression at their sole CMJ show, Priests.

Kylesa, Pinkish Black, Sierra @ Saint Vitus
Two bands that are tied to the metal scene, but really aren't that metal, Kylesa and Pinkish Black, are currently on the road together for this BV/IO-presented tour which also includes Kylesa's pals Sierra. Kylesa, who do have heavier roots, have been experimenting with psychedelia, shoegazey atmospheres, and alternative rock anthems lately, whereas Pinkish Black leans towards darkwave.

Kurt Vile, Lee Ranaldo and The Dust, Beach Fossils @ Terminal 5
It's hard to believe that it was only four years ago that Kurt Vile and Beach Fossils both played the Woodsist/Captured Tracks Festival, and now they're teaming up again for KV to headline what is by far his largest NYC show yet at Terminal 5. Lee Ranaldo and the Dust (which has more Sonic Youth members than any other post-SY band at the moment) is on the bill too, and of course not to miss.

Serpentine Path, Castevet, Vorde, Oneirogen @ Union Pool
Brooklyn's reclusive metal alchemists Castevet -- featuring seriously shredding guitarist Andrew Hock -- play their record release show which is co-sponsored by our heavy sister site, Invisible Oranges.

Ashrae Fax, Historics, Donovan Blanc, DJ Frankie Teardrop @ Glasslands
North Carolina duo Ashrae Fax put out lost gem Static Crash 10 years ago which sounds like the best '80s 4AD album never heard (think Cocteau Twins but groovier). Mexican Summer reissued the record this year and have coaxed the band back into action.

Electronium: The Future Was Then @ BAM
Questlove, Dan Deacon, Jeremy Ellis, How To Dress Well, Sonnymoon and more are performing at this "freely-associative and impressionistic musical homage to pioneers in the electronic music scene between 1948 and 1979."

Minus The Bear, INVSN, Slow Bird @ Best Buy Theater
Technical-guitar emo is pretty in right now, and though their most classic records might be behind them, Minus the Bear are one of the bands who were a crucial part in developing that style.

The Waterboys, Freddie Stevenson @ Bowery Ballroom
Celt pop vets The Waterboys are official supporting their 10th LP, An Appointment with Mr. Yeats but expect no shortage of hits from This is the Sea and Fisherman's Blues.

Mike Donovan, LODRO, Pigeons @ Death By Audio
With the Sic Alps moniker retired, Mike Donovan is now playing under his own name, but expect the same swampy folk. LODRO's bluesy noir is a good fit as opener.

Marina Rosenfeld, David Grubbs, Susan Howe @ Issue Project Room
IPR's "Ten Years on the Infinite Plain" anniversary celebration continues tonight with composer/turntablist Marina Rosenfeld and the East Coast premiere of "WOODSLIPPERCOUNTERCLATTER," the new collaboration between poet Susan Howe and musician/composer David Grubbs.

The Beets, Chastity Belt, Pony Time, The Beer Shits, Haybaby @ Shea Stadium
Brooklyn mutant folkies The Beets headline this show but do check out Seattle's Chastity Belt whose new album, No Regrets, is streamable below. Also on the bill are Seattle's punky Pony Time and you can stream their album, Go Find Your Own, below as well.

Frightened Rabbit, Augustines @ Webster Hall
The album that many say Frightened Rabbit will never top is five years behind us, but they've still got a supportive fan base (as two nights at Webster Hall, one of which is sold out, might imply) and this year's Pedestrian Verse is still pretty good.

The Combat Zone, Missionary, Lude Boys, Longings, Failed States @ Fitness
It's a night of Boston (and Western Mass) and NYC hardcore/punk with The Combat Zone and Lude Boys coming from Boston, NYC's Missionary and Failed States (mems. of Nuclear Spring), plus Amherst's Longings, who are more mid-tempo punk/post-punk and have a killer demo out.

The English Beat @ Paramount
While singer Dave Wakeling is the only original member of the band these days, there's no denying his many pop hits like "Mirror in the Bathroom," "Save it For Later" and even General Public's "Tenderness."

Justin Townes Earle @ The Space at Westbury
JTE is a good excuse to check out this new Long Island venue (run by Bowery Presents) in a historic, '20s-era space.

The Swellers, Candy Hearts @ The Studio at Webster Hall
Two pop punk bands team up for this show at The Studio at Webster Hall.

Radiolab Live w/ On Fillmore, Noveller, Ophira Eisenberg @ Beacon Theatre
Once again, WNYC/NPR show Radiolab has taken its show on the road, this time with an event they're calling "Apocalyptical." In addition to hosts Jad Abumrad and Robert Krulwich, they've brought along musicians Noveller and On Filmore, plus comedian Ophira Eisenberg for their patented blend of science, music and humor.

Ed Schrader's Music Beat, Guerilla Toss, Low Fat Getting High, Robot Death Kites, Sneaks @ Silent Barn
There's a good show at Silent Barn tonight with post-punk from Ed Schrader's Music Beat, punk from Low Fat Getting High, and more.

Nina Kraviz, Stacey Pullen, Jenifa Mayanja, Alex From Tokyo, Mike Khoury @ Output
The always-great Russian deep house producer/art pop singer Nina Kraviz plays this Halloween party at Output tonight.

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

In addition to hosts Jad Abumrad and Robert Krulwich, the BAM shows -- like a few of the dates on this tour -- include Demetri Martin and Thao Ngyen. Both shows are sold out (but where there's a will there's a way). "Radiolab: Live in the Dark" comes to Philadelphia on Friday and there's a Chicago date in September.

(In addition to her appearances as part of Radiolab, Thao Ngyen is playing a free show at The Satellite in L.A. on July 13.)

Buke & Gass at MHOW in May (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Buke & Gass

We forgot a show in our recent roundup of Wilco-related happenings.

Jad Abumrad of Radiolab is hosting Radiolab Concerts: Curious Sounds on Saturday (6/18) at the NYU Skirball Center. The event will feature Wilco drummer Glenn Kotche (Wilco), Buke & Gass, and a "special mystery performer" (anyone know who it is?). Abumrad will discuss music and sound with the guests, in addition to a performance by each one. Tickets are on sale now and you can save $5 by using the code "radiolab." Flyer below.

As previously mentioned, John Stirratt and Pat Sansone of Wilco play a show at the Living Room the same day as Glenn's show, and Nels Cline plays a show at Blue Note the night before, late the night before, after midnight actually (so also technically Saturday). That's a lot of Wilco in NYC on Saturday.

For Buke & Gass the NYU show happens right before they leave for a tour of Europe. While over there they'll play at least one show with their Metallica-collaborating friend Lou Reed who plays as part of a free show in Prospect Park tonight (6/16). Buke & Gass play a free show in Prospect Park in August with Ra Ra Riot and Delicate Steve. All of their dates below...
