Browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows. Here are some highlights...
NY Comedy Festival
It's the final night of the 2013 NYCF. Options include a talk between Larry David & David Steinberg at Town Hall; Jenny Slate & Friends at Littlefield; and "Happy House" (with Reggie Watts, Kate Berlant, Jared Logan and more) at Santos.
Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival
The multi-venue Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival wraps up tonight with three shows. Some notables include Star Slinger and Kastle at Output, Kaytranada, Jerome LOL, and Groundislava at Glasslands, and XXXY at Cameo. Check out tonight's full schedule below:
Star Slinger, Teki Latex, Kastle, Different Sleep, Distal, Clicks and Whistles @ OutputCocoRosie, Xenia Rubinos, Arc Iris, Jason Eldredge DJ set @ Brooklyn Bowl
Jubilee, Kaytranada, Jerome LOL, Groundislava @ Glasslands
XXXY, Max McFerren, Lotic, Blacky II, Lamin Fofana @ Cameo
Avant-pop duo CocoRosie's tour hit NYC for a Webster Hall show earlier this year, and tonight it wraps up with a more intimate one at Brooklyn Bowl, which is free with RSVP. Opening are two singers who also lean towards the eccentric, Xenia Rubinos and Arc Iris.
Circle Takes the Square, B. Dolan @ Saint Vitus
Experimental post-hardcore band Circle Takes the Square released their debut album, As the Roots Undo, in 2004, a unique step forward for the genre and now considered a modern classic. After being silent for years, the band quietly returned with its followup, Decompositions Volume Number One, in December 2012, and are now finally on a tour for that album which hits NYC tonight. Opening is alternative rapper B. Dolan.
Sinead O'Connor @ City Winery
The Irish singer wraps up her sold-out, three-night stint at City Winery.
The Blow, Love Inks @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
The Blow released their first new record in six years last month, which finds Khaela Maricich right back in the groove of minimal synthpop with twisty wordplay. Seeing The Blow live, though, is almost another experience entirely, part performance art where Maricich is capable of making a very intimate connection with the audience. Don't miss Austin's Love Inks, either.
Destroyer, Pink Mountaintops @ Bowery Ballroom
How do you follow-up something as near-perfect as Destroyer's 2011 album, Kaputt? By avoiding it, mostly, with an EP of Spanish-language covers. Tonight Dan Bajar is in solo mode, but will no doubt entrance nonetheless.
Butter The Children, Sat Nite Duets, Radical Dads, Harbor Lights @ Death By Audio
Radical Dads, who do traditional, '90s style indie rock as well as any new band today, play a record release show tonight for their new single. It's also a release show for Milwaukee's Sat. Night Duets, whose new album is just out on Rad-Dads-affiliated label Uninhabitable Mansions. You can stream that below.
Kavinsky, Com Truise (DJ), Sleepy & Boo @ Webster Hall
After contributing to the excellent Drive soundtrack, French producer Kavinsky released his debut LP, OutRun and then celebrated it in NYC with a DJ set at Webster Hall in March. Tonight he returns to that venue, but this one's billed as "live."
Comedy Night @ Knitting Factory
Tonight's the four-year anniversary of Hannibal Buress' comedy night at the Williamsburg venue and he's got Greer Barnes, Cameron Esposito and probably some other surprise guests to help celebrate. Usually Comedy Night is free but this one is $12.
Dumb Numbers, Degreaser, Breathing Shrine @ The Flat
Dumb Numbers, the project of Australia's Adam Harding, are currently supporting My Bloody Valentine on their North American tour which hits NYC this week, but ahead of those shows, the band have added a last-minute Brooklyn show happening tonight at The Flat. Dumb Numbers' album features contributions from Dinosaur Jr's Lou Barlow and Murph, Jesus Lizard's David Yow, Melvins' Dale Crover and more, and we know that at least Murph is part of their live band.

Speaking of Forgetters (the project of Jawbreaker/Jets to Brazil's Blake Schwarzenbach and Against Me!'s Kevin Mahon), they recently announced their new bassist, following the departure of former bassist, Caroline Paquita.
