You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...

Dum Dum Girls, Hospitality, TEEN @ Prospect Park Bandshell
A trio of quality female-led bands outdoors on a nice day in Prospect Park is pretty hard to turn down, especially when it's free.

Mermaid Parade
Coney Island may slowly be getting a makeover but its annual freak flag extravaganza remains one of the last vestiges for Weird NYC. Expect minimal body coverage and the de Blasio kids as King & Queen of the parade.

Make Music NY
The annual Make Music New York switches to a Saturday for 2014 (a smart move) with fun free events all over the city. Are you a ukulele player who's always wanted to jam with a couple hundred other players? You can do that today. Also be on the lookout for a mobile piano bar playing exclusively Billy Joel songs.

Punk Island
As part of Make Music NY, over 90 punk bands will head to Staten Island today for this free festival which includes Cop Problem, Raw Nerves, Reagan Youth, Two Fisted Law, Darkside NYC, and many more.

Ex-Cult, Liquor Store, Call Of The Wild @ Union Pool
Union Pool's "Summer Thunder" series brings free music to their backyard every Saturday afternoon and this is an especially good one, with Memphis punks Ex-Cult headlining. LIquor Store and Call of the Wild make it hard to pass up. Bands usually start around 4 PM.

Turnip King, Treatment, Dabbler, Video Daughters, Happy Lives, Hippy, Graffiti Sunshine, The Yin Yangs, Dumb Talk, Mini Dresses, Palm, Noise New York, The Meaning of Life, Painted Zeros @ 94 Evergreen (Slackfest)
The Slackgaze 'zine is throwing this three-day festival in Bushwick featuring 45 bands with music running from 3 PM - 2 AM. Tonight's headlined by the terrific Turnip King.

Meshuggah, Between the Buried and Me @ Best Buy Theater
We may not be happy with Meshuggah for inspiring most of the djent genre, but credit where it's due: these guys are legends and have over two decades' worth of albums to prove it.

The Coathangers, DAMEHT, Honduras, XNY @ Brooklyn Night Bazaar
Mastodon collaborators The Coathangers offer more of their raging garage rock on this year's Suck My Shirt. See them live for free tonight.

Oblivionation, Raw Nerves, Demon Brother, Concrete Cross @ Death by Audio
Raw Nerves are one of the many bands playing Punk Island today, but later on at night you can catch them in an environment more suitable for their sound, Death by Audio.

Merchandise, Symbol, Francis Heinzfeller @ Glasslands
Merchandise have a new record coming out on 4AD (a much bigger label than their previous releases), and from the sound of its new single, it looks like we'll be getting more of their romantic '80s-inspired post-punk. This is the first of three nights in NYC for this band.

Champagne Jerry @ Joe's Pub
Ad-Rock collaborator Champagne Jerry continues his monthly album rollout at Joe's Pub.

Dave Chappelle @ Radio City Music Hall
Comedian Dave Chappelle is back in a big way, doing a whopping nine 10 nights at Radio City Music Hall. This is the fourth.

Little Dragon, Lawrence Rothman @ Terminal 5
Little Dragon gave us more of the Swedish synth pop we know and love on this year's Nabuma Rubberband and tonight they wrap up a sold-out 2-night run at NYC's Terminal 5. Theatrical LA musician Lawrence Rothman should get things off to an interesting start.

Cliff Richard @ Gramercy Theatre
Morrissey may have canceled but opener and UK pop legend Cliff Richard is still playing, albiet now at Gramercy Theatre, not Barclays. A rock n' roll survivor and maker of smooth '70s hits like "We Don't Talk Anymore," Cliff is a bit of a cheeseball but the hits speak for themselves. The show is free and open to the public but if you've got a Moz Barclays ticket stub (or online printout/email), you get in early.

The Sons & Heirs @ Union Hall
If you really want to recreate the Barclays show, after Cliff, head to Union Hall where NYC's premier Smiths/Morrissey cover band will play. It's just like a Morrissey show except Sons & Heirs only play the songs you really want to hear.

Diana Ross @ The Theater at MSG
R&B/soul/disco legend and former Supremes singer Diana Ross has decades upon decades of excellent hits. Tonight's show will surely be packed with those.

Hot Tuna, Leon Russell @ Bergen PAC
Unlike the main members' other band, Jefferson Airplane, Hot Tuna have continued consistently for decades since their start as a band, and like fellow jam pioneers Phil Lesh or Allman Brothers, they've still got it.

'The Past is a Grotesque Animal' (of Montreal movie) @ IFC Center
Jason Miller's of Montreal documentary, The Past is a Grotesque Animal, is a very up-close, very personal look at the band and main man Kevin Barnes in particular.

For all of tonight's shows, and tomorrow's, check out our NYC concert calendar.

Cibo Matto

together PANGEA @ Bowery Ballroom, 2013 (more by Dylan Johnson)
together PANGEA

You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...

Cibo Matto, Salt Catherdral @ LPR
Cibo Matto's brand-new album is titled Hotel Valentine so it is totally appropriate they should have their album release party tonight. Sold out, but they play Brooklyn Bowl in March.

Emancipator Ensemble, Star Slinger, ODESZA, Real Magic @ Best Buy Theater
There's a ton of great electronic music on this bill with Portland trip hop musician Emancipator, UK dance producer Star Slinger, Seattle melodic bass duo Odesza and Oakland electronic pop singer Real Magic. Bring your dancing shoes.

Team Spirit, The Liza Colby Sound, Hard Nips, Blue and Gold, Lowell @ Brooklyn Night Bazaar
Brooklyn Night Bazaar offers weekends of local artisan shopping, gourmet eats, beer and wine, ping pong, black light minigolf and music all under one Greenpoint roof. Tonight's headlined by Team Spirit, who last year on V-day released an EP called Love is for Suckers. Free.

Anti-Valentines Day Cover Band Show @ Death By Audio
Get your feelings out to cover bands of Saves the Day, Alkaline Trio, Weezer, The Get Up Kids, Sonic Youth, Dead Moon and Hole at DbA's Anti-Valentines Day Cover Band show.

Heatsick, Ned Rothenberg @ Issue Project Room
Two different experimental musicians come together for this show: the avant-electronics of Berlin's Heatsick and US composer Ned Rothenberg, who's worked with Fred Frith, John Zorn, Marc Ribot, and others.

together PANGEA, Mozes and the Firstborn @ Knitting Factory
Last time together PANGEA were here, Bowery Ballroom was a nonstop raging sea of stagedivers and crowdsurfers. These SoCal party boys bring out that in audiences, be warned.

Kings of Leon, Gary Clark Jr. @ MSG
Mind your sex, the brothers Followill will be setting it on fire tonight. There are pills for that though

Jonathan Wilson, The Blank Tapes @ MHOW
It may be 2014 but Jonathan Wilson parties like it's Laurel Canyon 1973. His highly orchestral, big-sounding new record features contributions from Graham Nash, David Crosby, Jackson Browne, Josh Tillman, Wilco's Patrick Sansone, and Mike Campbell & Benmont Tench from Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers. This is the second of two NYC shows.

Scuba, Oxia with No Regular Play, Ahmed Hashim @ Output
Scuba runs the Hotflush label and is also one of the pioneers of the type of dubstep that now gets called post-dubstep, or future garage, etc. Any chance to see this electronic great is a good one.

Turnstile, Diamond Youth, Angel Dust, Blind Justice @ The Acheron
Diamond Youth are the odd band out on this mostly-hardcore bill, instead opting for a mix of Weezer power pop and QOTSA atmosphere.

The Sons & Heirs, Dave Hill, Rob Sheffield @ The Bell House
Whether you're one of two lovers entwined or think yourself unloveable, you'll be accepted tonight at this Morrissey-themed Valentine's Day party featuring ace tribute act Sons & Heirs, comedian and Moz-o-phile Dave Hill, and music journalist Rob Sheffield. Just know -- you may go on your own, and leave on your own, and then go home and cry and want to die.

Skinny Puppy, Army of the Universe, Cult of Youth @ Webster Hall
This must be somebody's idea of a valentine's day show: long-running Canadian electro-industrial outfit Skinny Puppy come designed to shock...and to dance. They're live shows are usually something else.

Beth Orton @ The Allen Room
With all the snow we've been getting, The Allen Room -- where artists play against expansive view of Central Park -- should be particularly lovely, especially with Orton's ethereal voice. Part of the American Songbook Series.

Sarah Neufeld of Arcade Fire @ The Kitchen
Arcade Fire violinist Sarah Neufeld (also of Bell Orchestre and The Luyas) just released a three-song EP, Black Ground, which doubles as bonus material for her 2013 LP, Hero Brother. For tonight's show, she'll be joined by saxophonist (and sometimes Arcade Fire touring member) Colin Stetson.

Celestial Shore, Cloud Becomes Your Hand, Killer Bob, Throat Punishment, Jerry Paper @ The Ho_se
Mathy indie pop band Celestial Shore play locally a lot -- a whole lot -- which is probably how they make their intricate arrangements seem effortless.

The Syd Arthur / Black Girls show at Mercury Lounge was canceled due to visa/weather issues.

For all of tonight's shows, and tomorrow's, check out our NYC concert calendar.

Johnny Marr @ The Fillmore
Johnny Marr
Johnny Marr

Johnny Marr performed "The Right Thing Right" from his solo album, The Messenger on Conan on 11/5, four days after his North American tour with Meredith Sheldon (ALAMAR), which started on Halloween in Anaheim, hit The Fillmore in San Francisco, a show we have pictures from in this post. There's more of them below with the video from Conan too.

Johnny's next tour stop is Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin this weekend. NYC gets a show at Webster Hall on November 16 and tickets are still available. If you're going and want to keep the Smiths vibes going, save your ticket stub for an afterparty at Knitting Factory where your ticket will get you $5 off a ticket to see Morrissey/Smiths tribute band The Sons and Heirs play. You can also then yell, "That's not how Johnny Marr played 'Panic' earlier tonight!!!" If you want to be a jerk.

Dates, pictures and setlist from The Fillmore, and Conan video, below...

Morrissey, 1/11/2013 @ BAM (more by Dana [distortion] Yavin)
Morrissey

As you may remember, Morrissey was hospitalized last week for what turned out to be a bleeding ulcer, which caused cancelation of a number of dates on his current North American tour. It looks like the tour will indeed resume in Las Vegas on February 9, as per this missive from Moz himself sent to fan website True to You:

The reports of my death have been greatly understated. Once admitted to the William Beaumont Hospital at Royal Oak in Michigan, I received treatment for concussion, a bleeding ulcer, and Barrett's esophagus. The positive from all of this is that there are now no known ailments left for me to try.

I am fully determined to resume the tour on February 9 at the Chelsea Ballroom in Las Vegas. If there's an audience of any kind in attendance, I just might die with a smile on my face, after all. If I am not there, I shall probably never again be anywhere. Equally, I am determined to play Flint (Michigan) if it kills me (which, on the face of it, it almost has.)

Thank you to everyone present at both Brooklyn (New York) and Melbourne (Australia) during recent weeks for two of the best nights of what might charitably be termed my "career". My debt to you will outlive time itself.
pause at my headstone,

MORRISSEY
