You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Father John Misty, Guy Blakeslee (of Entrance Band) @ Bowery Ballroom
With a swagger that seems equal parts Jarvis Cocker, Kris Kristofferson and Neil Diamond, Father John Misty is a ham, but a self-depreciating one with an ace band and a whole bunch of great songs. Sold out.
Paul McCartney @ Irving Plaza
In town for the SNL 40th Anniversary, Paul gives a valentine to lucky fans who managed to get to the box office in time to snag a ticket to tonight's show.
DJ Windows 98 (Win Butler) @ Baby's All Right
After Win Butler serves coffee as a barista at La Colombe in Hudson Square today (true story), he'll head to Baby's for a late-night set under his DJ moniker, DJ Windows 98. Come prepared to dance.
Aesop Rock, Rob Sonic, DJ Abilities, Homeboy Sandman @ Gramercy Theatre
Underground rap fave Aesop Rock released a new album towards the end of last year with Hail Mary Mallon, his group with Rob Sonic and DJ Big Wiz. Tonight, he and Rob come to Gramercy Theatre together, and on-stage collaborations seem likely.
The Lox, Biz Markie, MC Lyte, Mister Cee @ Marlin Room at Webster Hall
One of the many rap shows happening in NYC for NBA All-Star Weekend, legendary New York trio The LOX (Sheek Louch, Styles P, and Jadakiss) plays this afternoon show at Webster Hall (3 PM doors).
Trophy Scars, Pour The Pirate Sherry, Reese Van Riper @ Arlene's Grocery
Shapeshifting NJ band Trophy Scars have gone from making high quality post-hardcore to moving outside of the genre into the realm of progressive rock and a Tom Waits-inspired singing style. No matter which mode they're in, they're good.
Dawn Landes @ Lincoln Center
The American Songbook Series continues tonight with Brooklyn folk singer and Will Oldham collaborator Dawn Landes.
Two Gallants, Happiness @ Rough Trade
Two Gallants put out their most rockin' album yet earlier this month, and tonight they wrap up their 3-night stand in NYC on their tour supporting it. Deer Tick side project Happiness open. Sold out.
The Shivers, Tigereye @ Mercury Lounge
Folk duo The Shivers (now with Keith Zarriello joined by Benham Jones instead of Jo Schornikow) released their new album, Forever Is A Word, this month, and tonight they celebrate it with this release show.
E-Town Concrete, VOD, Indecision, The Banner, Suburban Scum, Razorblade Handgrenade @ Starland Ballroom

The Sons & Heirs, The Steve McQueens, Doug Gillard @ The Bell House
Does you ever feel this way: "Two lovers entwined pass me by, and heaven knows I'm miserable now"? Do you want the one you can't have and is it driving you mad? Morrissey knows how you feel. He's not here tonight but is in spirit with this V-Day party featuring Smiths tribute act The Sons & Heirs and Ohio indie rock legend Doug Gillard. The Steve McQueens, if you're wondering, is a Prefab Sprout tribute band making this a truly special night for '80s-prone heart-on-sleeve types. Who knows, you might meet somebody who really loves you.
Motion Studies, Katie Rush, Limited, Leisure, Cassie Ramone (DJ Set), Future Punx (DJ Set) @ Baby's All Right
You've got your Valentines Day brunch and evening plans set, but what to do in between? Head to Baby's for this free 4 - 7PM show. Motion Studies fly the dancerock flag in a DFA style, Limited dabble in '80s New Romantic and '90s R&B styles, and Leisure make shoegazy indiepop.
Har Mar Superstar, Computer Magic, Crazy and The Brains @ Mercury Lounge
Entertaining goofball Har Mar Superstar can turn any place into a sweaty party, given his ability to mimic '80s R&B and funk... he can breakdance too. Tonight's show is also with talented synthpop act Computer Magic.
Mister Lies, eskimeaux, My Favorite, Band Practice @ Shea Stadium
NYC indiepop cult heroes My Favorite bring melody and melodrama in equal measure.
Dave Chappelle @ Gramercy Theatre
After a lengthy vacation from the spotlight, one of our sharpest comic minds returned to the stage a couple years ago. It's good to have him back. Tonight's his third of five shows at Gramercy Theatre.
Matthew Dear, Derrick May, Ambivalent @ Verboten
Derrick May was one of the Belleville Three (along with Juan Atkins and Kevin Saunderson) who created the blueprint for techno in the late '80s.
Living Colour @ Brooklyn Bowl
Living Colour are currently in the studio finishing up their new album, title Shade.

Moon Casale (aka Keith Zarriello of The Shivers) released his self titled debut album earlier this month and you can stream the entire thing below or order it in digital/vinyl formats at bandcamp. While Keith can do a bit of genre hopping in The Shivers, the Moon Casale album is entirely bare bones loner folk which would sound pretty great in a candle-lit church, which just so happens to be where he's doing his record release show. The show happens in NYC on January 25 at The Greenpoint Reformed Church with Jo Schornikow (aka the other half of The Shivers), The Sparrow (aka Mina Karimi), Scott Rudd, and Paloma Gil, who is one half of The Dove and the Wolf. Admission is $5 at the door and proceeds go to the church's soup kitchen which feeds the homeless three times a week. More info at the facebook event.
Scott Rudd has toured the UK with Jo Schornikow in the past, and he has other NYC shows coming up after the Greepoint Reformed Church show. He also plays Bar4 on February 2, The Manhattan Inn on February 18, Post Crypt Cafe on February 22, and American Folk Art Museum on March 22. You can stream his track, "Probably Lied," below.
That stream, a stream of the Moon Casale album, a video for a Moon Casale b-side, and a Dove and the Wolf video, below...
Manhattan Inn Piano Bar & Restaurant (632 Manhattan Ave at Bedford Ave in Brooklyn) continues presenting free music all summmer. Upcoming shows include James Chance, Miles Benjamin Anthony Robinson, Aaron Pfenning, The Shivers, Only Son, Miguel Mendez & more. Full Summer 2011 schedule below...

John McCauley, Jonny Corndawg, Matt Vasquez @ BV-SXSW
Jonny Corndawg is releasing his album Down on the Bikini Line on August 30. He'll celebrate the release of the album that same day (8/30) at Union Pool. Other bands TBA. John McCauley of Deer Tick provides guitar on the album. Check out the artwork and stream two tracks below.
The Union Pool show is 4 days after Jonny Corndawg plays The Saint in Asbury Park, NJ (8/26) with Jessica Lea Mayfield. Tickets are on sale now. Jessica Lea Mayfield recently contributed a cover of Nirvana's "Lounge Act" to Newermind. Kinda funny that Deer Tick isn't on that album.
Speaking of Deer Tick, friends, lovers and frequent tourmates Those Darlins are currently on an extensive tour that includes some dates this month with Old 97's. Those Darlins will hit NYC on October 14 at The Bell House. Tickets are on sale now. All dates are listed below.
As mentioned, Middle Brother (featuring John McCauley of Deer Tick) are not done yet and will play a rare set at Newport Folk Festival in Rhode Island at the end of the month. It is their only scheduled date though. Delta Spirit (whose singer is also in Middle Brother) also play the SOLD OUT fest. Middle Brother, Dawes, Cordawg & Deer Tick played Bowery Ballroom and Music Hall in April, not long after Middle Brother and Deer Tick (and Corndawg) played a set at the Partisan Records/BV day party in Austin that The Old 97's also played. A belated set of pictures from that free show at Barbarella are in this post. More of them below.
Dawes (whose singer and drummer are also in Middle Brother) are currently touring overseas, but will return next week and head out on tour with Alison Krauss & Union Station (featuring Jerry Douglas). That tour hits Beacon Theater on August 2nd (the show is sold out though tickets are still available for the NJ show happening one day later). All dates are listed below.
Deer Tick also has dates coming up including a free show at Pier 54 (8/11) with DOM. More dates below.
Jo Schornikow of the John McCauley approved Shivers plays on Sunday (7/24) at Death by Audio as part of the "Permanent Wave's SOUND WAVE to Benefit the International Women's Health Coalition" at the all ages venue. Amy Klein of Titus Andronicus, Ian O'Neil of Deer Tick's previous band, is on the bill too.

DOWNLOAD: The Shivers - "Love Is In The Air" (MP3)
"it is the first Shivers record released on a label. Everything the band's done previously--five records since 2004--has been recorded, produced, funded and distributed by the Shivers themselves. In that time the band has amassed a small, but devoted following (to which I belong), but little in the way of critical notice or material success. By any measure, this should be the Shivers' coming-out moment, a chance for the band to make a long-overdue move to the Next Level." [The Awl]This week, they've made the album available for free download via The Awl. You can also grab the single "Love Is In The Air" above.
The Shivers play a CD release party tonight, Wednesday (6/29) at Glasslands. Trash Gut are on the bill too. Trash Gut's lineup includes an ex-member of Deer Tick, who are openly huge fans of The Shivers...

John & Ian & barrels of wine
After a rousing opening set by duo The Shivers, Deer Tick frontman John McCauley and Deer Tick guitarist Ian O'Neil (who also used to be in Titus Andronicus) took turns playing completely solo and with each other at their show at City Winery in NYC last night (1/19). In front of an over-packed house, they each used their voices and guitars as instruments, and sometimes John sat down at the piano. Speaking of sitting down, that's what most of the crowd was doing, at their tables where food, beer, and especially wine were flowing. Others were standing around the edges of the spacious venue because there weren't any seats left.
The setlist was heavy on Deer Tick classics that I was especially happy to hear stripped down, included brand new unrecorded songs (often the ones Ian sang), Middle Brother songs (including the song "Middle Brother" with assistance from special guest and audience member Jonny Corndawg who helped write the song), a Replacements cover, and a John Prine cover. They closed with a festive cover of Buddy Holly's "Oh Boy." The only dissapointment was that John had a piano at his disposal and he didn't use it to play "Christ Jesus."
The merch table had Jonny Corndawg-created Beavis & Butthead (John & Ian) airbrushed shirts for sale, and the venue was selling limited edition bottles of City Winery-made John McCauley 'petit shiraz' wine (pictures below).
Go catch John and Ian on tour with each other now, catch Corndawg out on tour with Dawes, and see Middle Brother when they tour with Deer Tick and Dawes in March (tickets are still on sale for both NYC shows). Everyone's dates are listed HERE.
