Kraftwerk at MoMA in 2012 (more by Ryan Muir)
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Kraftwerk @ United Palace Theater
Electronic music pioneers Kraftwerk bring their 3-D tour to NYC for two shows at one of the prettiest venues in the city.
Disco Doom, Ovlov, Bad History Month, Leapling @ Death by Audio
This is the second of two NYC dates on Switzerland indie rockers Disco Doom's current tour. They'll be joined by their EIS labelmates Ovlov and Bad History Month, plus local indie pop band Leapling, making for a pretty good lineup all around.
Spirit Family Reunion, Leland Sundries, Willy Gantrim @ Union Pool
Brooklyn's Spirit Family Reunion are far from the only band to jump on the old timey folk revival bandwagon, but unlike your Lumineers or your Mumfords, they keep the raw aesthetic of those old bands intact as well. For a band who has headlined Bowery Ballroom, tonight's Union Pool show should feel very intimate.
'Comedy Notebook' w/ Colin Quinn, "TV's Frank" Conniff, Liam McEneaney, Carla Rhodes, Andy Shernoff @ Housing Works Bookstore Cafe
This series is a chance to check out comedians working out new material. (Plus, The Dictators' Andy Shernoff. It's free but this show fills up early, get there before 7 PM.
Janeane Garofalo, Adam Wade, Nisse Greenberg @ Union Hall
Tonight's show is part of the "Geeking Out" series that finds actors, musicians, comedians, authors and other notables "shameless nerding out on the bands they love, the celebrities they obsess over and the video games that nearly wore their thumbs to stumps."
For all of tonight's shows, and tomorrow's, check out our NYC concert calendar.
For laughs, check out the NYC Comedy calendar too.

The United States is rife with three things; assholes, podcasts, and assholes with podcasts. For me, podcasts are an unnavigable medium because anybody with a computer and 1/8th of a normal sized human brain can produce a podcast. Don't get me wrong; there are some incredible podcasts out there and the world is taking notice. Julie Klausner's podcast How Was Your Week has reached an almost legendary status and even got a glowing write-up in the Times recently. Marc Maron's WTF podcast basically set the standard for what constitutes a quality podcast. Greg Proops, Dave Hill, and Doug Benson also all have wonderful podcasts. And yet, the only reason I know of and can vouch for the quality of these podcasts and the people behind them is because I was a huge fan of these people in a pre-podcast world.
NYC is an epicenter of podcasting. If only there was a way where a guy like me could see, say, over 20 live podcasts on 2 stages over the course of 2 days consuming nearly 12 amazing hours of my life. Of wait. THERE IS! The naugural New York City Podcast Festival will take place at on 2 stages at The Pit on January 12th and January 13th 2013!! This show features a staggering line-up of talent including Dave Hill (Klaus Kinski favorite), Nick Turner (Klaus Kinski favorite), Kevin Allison, Wyatt Cenac, Gary Gulman, Craig Rowin, Jeff Rubin, Jermaine Fowler, Liam McEneaney, TV's Frank Conniff , Halley Feiffer, Julieanne Smolinski, Dan St. Germain, Sean Donnelly, Jackie Kashian, Myq Kaplan, MC Mr Napkins, Jared Logan, Anthony Antamanuik, Dan Soder, Mike Pace, and many others. This, my friends and enemies, is probably the greatest crash course in awesome podcasts on the planet and it's happening in our very own back yard. Keep your (dead) eyes on the NycPodFest Facebook Page for updates!
