You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
The Vaselines, Amanda X @ Bell House
Scottish indie rock royalty The Vaselines have now released two albums since returning from a long hiatus, most recently with 2013's V is for Vaselines. They're a lot of fun live, with the banter between Frances McKee and Eugene Kelly providing almost as much entertainment as their songs. On past tours, the band has included members of Belle & Sebastian, but this time folks from Sons & Daughters and 1990s help out. Philadelphia's Amanda X are worth showing up early.
Dr. Dog, Yellerkin @ Bowery Ballroom
It's the second to last night of Dr. Dog's 8-night NYC run, and this one's with NY's Yellerkin.
Stephen Brodsky, King Collider @ Sugarcube
Following a happy hour with comedy, interviews and more at Sugarcube (Fulton & Front Streets), a night of free music takes over headlined by Stephen Brodsky, longtime frontman of metal shapeshifters Cave In, more recently frontman of punk/metal rippers Mutoid Man, and also an excellent solo artist.
Mike Pace and The Child Actors (ex-Oxford Collapse), ARMS, Lame Drivers @ Union Hall
Onetime leader of Oxford Collapse, Mike Pace is still mining similar indie rock territory. Which is just fine with us. Tonight's the record release show for his new album.
Karma To Burn, Sierra, Shitkill @ Saint Vitus
Instrumental stoner rock vets Karma to Burn reunited back in 2009 and stayed active, most recently releasing their Arch Stanton album in 2014. Tonight they make their way to NYC in support of that.
LODRO, Pawns, Bambara, Young Runner @ Palisades
If your taste runs dark, tonight's a good bill of somewhat sinister indie rock, with LODRO's bluesy/sultry swagger, Pawns' melodramatic postpunk, and the sheer force of Bambara.
LVL UP, Two Inch Astronaut, Dumb Talk, Pupppy @ Shea Stadium
This is a good bill of DIY rock, most notably for '90s-style indie rockers LVL UP and Dischord-inspired post-hardcore band Two Inch Astronaut.
Sam Owens, Video Daughters, Meenk, Laser Background, Mr. Twin Sister (DJ Set) @ Silent Barn
This show is a release party for the new Gravesend Recordings compilation tape and some the acts featured on it are performing. The night's headlined by Celestial Shore's Sam Owens.
Sporting Life (of Ratking), Show Me The Body, Tippwerk, The Taxidermists @ Silent Barn
Ratking gain the descriptor of "alt-rap" partially thanks to Sporting Life's off-kilter production, and he'll be showing that off in solo form tonight. This is the venue's late show.
Dillon Francis, Bro Safari, Anamanaguchi @ Terminal 5
EDM fans may want to know that Dillon Francis begins his 3-night run at Terminal 5 tonight, but even if you're not into EDM, chiptuners Anamanaguchi are worth catching.
Mantra Percussion, Wet Ink, Deborah Lohse and the Shakedown Dance Collective @ Winter Garden at Brookfield Place
It's the kickoff week for the 2015 Ecstatic Music Festival that aims to blur the line between rock/pop and modern composers. This event -- featuring Mantra Percussion performing specially commissioned works by Wet Ink with choreography by Deborah Lohse and the Shakedown Dance Collective -- is a free show
Bill Frisell @ Lincoln Center
With help from violist Eyvind Kang, bassist Thomas Morgan, drummer Rudy Royston, and singer/violinist Petra Haden (That Dog), guitarist Bill Frisell is performing interpretations of classics from the big screen like "When You Wish Upon a Star," "Alfie," and "Moon River."
Unlocking The Truth, Cinema Cinema, Netherlands, Wormburner @ Brooklyn Night Bazaar
Enjoy a night of food, drinks, arcade games, shopping and free rock and roll, headlined by the very young metal trio Unlocking the Truth, at the Brooklyn Night Bazaar tonight.

Violent Femmes @ Roseland Ballroom - 11/14/13
The Violent Femmes returned to the stage for some shows this year, after calling it quits in 2009. They first came to NYC for a show in Central Park back in September, but that show was quickly called off due to flooding, and this past Thursday (11/14), they finally returned for their first full NYC show since 2007 at Roseland Ballroom, one of the final shows for the venue which closes in April.
The trio, now joined by Dresden Dolls' Brian Viglione on drums (following the recent departure of Victor DeLorenzo), opened with the title track of their 1984 sophomore album, Hallowed Ground, and then after a song from their last full length, they proceeded to play their classic self titled debut in its entirety. They ended with a few more cuts from throughout their career, including Violent Femmes bonus track "Gimme the Car" and a reading by singer Gordan Gano of the lyrics to Lou Reed's "Like A Possum." Pictures of the show, including openers Wormburner, are in this post.
Wormburner's next NYC show is their annual Christmas show at Mercury Lounge (12/19) with Yule Dogs, East River Bandits, and Lifeguard Nights. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

Old 97s at Brooklyn Bowl - 6/28/13
Alt-country vets Old 97s came through NYC last night for a three-night run at Brooklyn Bowl (6/27-29), which saw them playing a different album in full each night, plus a set of other songs. We caught them on night 2 (6/28), where they played 1996's Wreck Your Life, and support came from Wormburner, who were celebrating the release of their new single, which features onetime Luna guitarist Sean Eden. Pictures from that show are in this post.
Night 1 saw the band performing Hitchhike to Rhome with support from Trapper Schoepp & the Shades, and night 3 saw them performing Too Far to Care with support from Via Audio.

Minneapolis trio BNLX's debut album was one of my favorites of last year. It throws a variety of post punk styles into a blender, and manages both lip-curl attitude and tongue-in-cheek awareness at the some time. The songs are also catchy as hell, and you can stream the whole album below.
The band will be visiting NYC next month, playing two shows: Pianos on May 16 with Wormburner and May 17 at Big Snow Buffalo Lodge with Honduras, Eastern Hollows, and Grand Resort. All BNLX dates are listed below.

Dean & Britta, The War on Drugs and Wormburner played the Shine a Light Music Festival at Mulcahy's in Wantaugh, NY on July 21. Presented by The Tommy Brull Foundation the festival supports Camp Anchor, a year-round recreation program dedicated to children and adults with special needs who reside within the Town of Hempstead. (More info about it is in this Newsday article.) The show was notable as a mini Luna reunion with guitarist Sean Eden joining Dean & Britta on-stage. (That band played their last show at Bowery Ballroom in 2005.) Their set included such Luna favorites as "Tiger Lily," "23 Minutes over Brussels," and "Moon Palace." A video of the band playing "Tiger Lily" is below. NYC Taper was there too and you can download the entire Dean & Britta (and Sean) set over his way.
Dean says he's done with doing Galaxie 500 shows (at least in NYC)... is it too soon for a real Luna reunion? More pictures of all three bands and the video of "Tiger Lily" are below.
