You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
"Zola Jesus, Deradoorian @ Saint Vitus
Zola Jesus is still riding high off last year's Taiga, her biggest-sounding album yet and first for a big label. But while last year she supported it at Webster Hall, this week she gets more intimate with two Saint Vitus shows (both sold out). Opening tonight is Dirty Projectors/Avey Tare collaborator (Angel) Deradoorian.
Fleetwood Mac @ Nassau Coliseum
Fleetwood Mac are now back with their entire classic lineup -- Christine McVie, John McVie, Mick Fleetwood, Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham -- and tonight they continue their multi-night NYC-area run. They've still got it and they play all the hits, so see them while you still can.
Sufjan Stevens' 'Round-Up' w/ Yarn/Wire @ BAM
While Sufjan will release his first studio album since 2010 this March, ahead of that he's premiering a new piece called Round-Up at BAM which concludes its run tonight. Sufjan will be on electronics and new-music ensemble Yarn/Wire is on piano and percussion.
They Might Be Giants @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Geek rock faves are about to play five MHOW shows between tonight and May. While the other four have a specific album as their theme, anything goes at tonight's. Sold out.
Weed Hounds, Wildhoney, Expert Alterations, Gingerlys @ Silent Barn
This is a stacked bill for shoegaze fans, with two of NYC's better bands in the genre -- Weed Hounds and Gingerlys -- and Baltimore's Wildhoney, who have a solid new LP coming soon on Deranged. Their indie rock neighbors and tourmates Expert Alterations should be good too.
Smoke DZA, Manolo Rose, Tray Pizza, Jy, Dave East, Big BZ, Sha Hef @ The Studio at Webster Hall
Smoke DZA is one of NYC's most prolific weed-loving rappers, his most recent release being the collaborative album with his group RFC, The Outsiders, which came out in late November.
Steve Sobs, Spookfish, Yaman Palak, Cheetah Lamp @ Palisades
Last week Steve Sobs led his band Phantom Posse at a Silent Barn show, and their most famous member iLoveMakonnen was on hand as well too. Tonight's show may be a smaller affair, but still a good one.
For all of tonight's shows, and tomorrow's, check out our NYC concert calendar.

James and Andy Ralph make music collectively as Writer and the Brooklyn-based sibs self-released Brotherface back in October 2012 and it's loaded with dense, gritty, anthemic songs. You can stream the album below. Also below, we've got the premiere of Writer's new video for "Cash for Gold" which features no cash, very little gold but a plethora of psychedelic imagery.
Writer begin a January residency at Pianos tonight (1/8), where they've lined up Census and Crusin' USA to play as well. Advance tickets are available. Next Tuesday (1/15) they'll play with Spookfish, plus Shilpa Ray, Cannibal Animal Machine and Man Made Sun (tickets); and after skipping a Tuesday, they'll finish their residency on 1/29 with Travis Trevisan of Tape Deck Mountain, plus Man Made Sun again and Phantasm (tickets).
Residency flyer, video premiere, and album stream are below...
