You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
THEESatisfaction, Columbia Nights, Moruf @ Santos Party House
THEESatisfaction are Sub Pop labelmates and collaborators with Shabazz Palaces, and they pretty much screw with the R&B formula as much as Shabazz does with rap. Tonight's the release show for their new album, EarthEE.
The Growlers, Broncho @ Baby's All Right
Party rockers The Growlers released Chinese Fountain back in September which found the band in a laid-back mood, drawing inspiration from twangy early-'60s rock, with a few danceable numbers in there as well. Tonight's their thrid show of a five-night-stand at Baby's All Right with Broncho. Doors at midnight for this one.
Lexie Mountain Boys, Greg Davis, Greys, Chandos, Ear Pwr, Safety Scissors,Adventure, Jimmy Whispers, Montag (DJ Set), Young Magic (DJ Set) @ Baby's All Right
Before the Growlers show will be this jam-packed bill of bands helping Carpark Records celebrate their 16th anniversary. Doors are at 5:30 PM.
Brother Joscephus (and the Love Revolution), Stumblebum Brass Band, Underground Horns @ Brooklyn Night Bazaar
Brooklyn Night Bazaar puts local crafts, microbrews, food-truck type eats, mini golf, ping pong, and live music all under one Greenpoint roof. Tonight's live entertainment is headlined by Brooklyn's 12-piece, New Orleans style soul band Brother Joscephus. Free.
Nancy Whang (The Juan Maclean/LCD Soundsystem) (DJ Set), Midnight Magic (DJ Set), Violent Bullshit, Naked Heroes, Ambience @ Cameo Gallery
This is an all-in-the-family night with a mix of live music (Violent Bullshit Naked Heroes), plus DJ sets from Nancy Whang, Midnight Magic and Turing Machine.
Scarcity of Tanks, Talibam!, Richard Papiercuts Sound Machine, Rodenticide @ Alphaville
Having just attempted to levitate VICE's offices into the East River, anarchist rable-rousers Talibam! play this new Bushwick venue.
Mayer Hawthorne (DJ Set), The Range, Astro Nautico (DJ Set) @ American Natural History Museum
The Museum of Natural History's electronic music series One Step Beyond continues tonight with a headlining DJ set from the soulful Mayer Hawthorne, direct support from IDM producer The Range, and local opening DJs Astro Nautico (aka Obey CIty, Bennett Kuhn, and Paul Baisley).
Death Vessel, Matt Sucich, Summer Underground @ Chelsea Market
Paper Garden Records' free Chelsea Market shows continue today, headlined by falsetto-tinged indie folkie Death Vessel.
Lee Foss, Eskuche & Nu Sky, DKDS, Psychemagik, Nikola Baytala @ Output
London/LA duo Psychemagik are expert are some of the most remixers of the moment and are skilled producers too. Catch them spinning tonight in Output's Panther Room.
California X, Darkwing, Ovlov, IYEZ @ Saint Vitus
California X recall the sludgy rock of bands like Dinosaur Jr and Torche, and their new LP brings some new elements in too like Thin Lizzy-esque twin leads. Ovlov are pretty likeminded to Cali X too.
Your 33 Black Angels, Wild Bore, Twist, Moon Tower @ Shea Stadium
Toronto duo Twist are musician Laura Hermiston and Holy Fuck's Brian Borcherdt, formed two years or so ago. Laura writes the songs, which have a '60s/'70s folk-rock vibe, and Borcherdt adds just enough grit in the production. It's certainly in the Mazzy Star system.
Screaming Females, Downtown Boys, Aye Nako @ Silent Barn
Screaming Females are already known for their shredding guitar solos, but the new album Rose Mountain has the band focusing a little more on great choruses. It's up their with the best of their previous work. Tonight's the fourth and final NYC show on their current tour, and both openers tonight are great too. Advance tickets sold out, but some tix available at doors.
Couch Slut, No Way, Bardus,Grizzlor @ The Acheron
Couch Slut's killer debut, My Life As A Woman, is an unrelenting mix of metal, hardcore, noise rock, and it even gets kinda pretty once or twice.
Craig Ferguson @ Town Hall
Now that he's free from hosting a late night talk show, Craig Ferguson has time to get back into standup and continues his three-night run at Town Hall tonight.
Dave Hill, Valley Lodge, Aparna Nancherla, Mrs. Smith, Bandits on the Run @ Union Hall
It's the March edition of Dave Hill's show "Meet Me in the Bathroom and Tell Me All Your Secrets" with his group Valley Lodge as the house band.
Los Lobos, Alejandro Escovedo @ Capitol Theatre
Legendary LA band Los Lobos continue strong 30-plus years into their career -- their most recent album Si Se Puede: Los Lobo And Friends made a number of Best of 2014 lists.
Slingshot Dakota, Bethlehem Steel, Vagabon, Lauren Early @ Aviv
Slingshot Dakota's driving pop sounds kind of like a more energetic Mates of State, and it's even better live. This is their last show before they start recording their new album. Locals Vagabon are worth showing up for too.
Ellis Ashbrook, Gospels, Key Rings @ Bowery Electric
Drawing from a host of post-punk influences (Wire, Siouxsie), newish Brooklyn band KEY RINGS are a dark, driving downpour fitting of Manchester 1980.

Quilt will be coming down from Boston to visit NYC this weekend to play Brooklyn Night Bazaar on Saturday (2/21) with The Mystery Lights, King Cyst, and Monograms on the bill as well. The band, who were last here to play one of the final Glasslands shows, don't have any other dates lined up -- perhaps we'll get some new songs. It's been almost a year since they released Held in Splendor (one of my favorites of 2014). They're terrific live, the rest of the lineup is good, and the show is free, so that's a great option if you're looking for something to do. RSVP to skip the line.
Tonight (2/20) at BKNB it's JD Samson will be performing live tonight as part of a a new group with her MEN bandmate Tami Hart, plus Lorna Dune and Aaron Harris. Other upcoming Night Bazaar shows of note: Word Inferno Friendship Society on March 7; Ex Cops, HEAT and more on March 13; Craft Spells,The Bilinda Butchers, Heavenly Beat and more on March 14; Teen Suicide, Amanda X, Lvl Up, Crying, Flagland and Washer on March 27; and Pity Sex and more TBA on April 17. All upcoming Brooklyn Night Bazaar shows are listed below....
Sandy can't stop Halloween (photo via)
We just posted the many NYC cancellations for tonight/Halloween (though more shows are still happening tonight than previous nights), and there's already a few cancellations being announced for Thursday (11/1).
The Meat Loaf show at Beacon Theatre, which was supposed to happen on Thursday has been postponed to a later date. An announcement on the new date is forthcoming.
Woodkid was forced to cancel his dates in NYC, San Francisco, and LA due to the hurricane and its effect on major airports. The NYC show was supposed to happen Thursday (11/1) at Irving Plaza and will be rescheduled to a TBA date. Tickets are refundable at the reseller.
As mentioned, the ESG show at Bowery Electric with Sinkane has been postponed to a later date TBD in December/January. The Voluptuous Horror of Karen Black show that was moved to Thursday from Tuesday (10/30) has been cancelled.

The Freelance Whales show at Webster Hall
is still on too, but with recent reports from ConEd about the power situation in lower Manhattan, it wouldn't be surprising if that show gets cancelled. UPDATE: Yep, postponed.

The Darcys were supposed to play Mercury Lounge on Thursday (11/1) with Rey Pila but it has been postponed to November 6.
The Tom Tom Club show at Brooklyn Bowl is still on as of this post (and looking good considering the Big Freedia Halloween show is going on as scheduled).

Mucca Pazza, going nutza @ Knitting Factory
Mucca Pazza, the opening act [at Lincoln Center], was entertaining in a novelty way: competent, fun, funny and fully entertaining. Their geeky routine consisted of knowledgeably eclectic musicians wearing high-school band uniforms, playing music and jumping about the stage accompanied by four cheerleaders. If a category had to be assigned them, perhaps it would be Om-Pa-Pa-Klezmer. [Queer New York]Big Band bombast from Chicago's Mucca Pazza was in effect at Knitting Factory on August 6th , as the band headlined the space with an assist from from LES's Stumblebum Brass Band, and Starring. Belated pictures and video from that show are below.
If you missed the brassy madness, Mucca Pazza (who also played Lincoln Center Out of Doors while they were here) will do small strings of dates in September and October, eventually landing at Wellmont on 10/9 where they will support Primus. Meanwhile, Stumblebum Brass band are scheduled to play NYC TONIGHT as part of "The Underclass Revue" with Brownbird Rudy Relic, Orb Mellon, and Low Society at Bowery Electric. The gig is one of three upcoming gigs for the local band. They will also play Sept 11th at Rockwood Music Hall and Oct 6th at Otto's Shrunken Head.
