You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Tame Impala, LA Priest @ Terminal 5
For Tame Impala's third album Currents, Kevin Parker went heavier on the synths and offered up some of his best psych-pop songwriting yet. Tonight's the second of two sold-out NYC shows, both with LA Priest, the funky new project of former Late of the Pier frontman Sam Dust.
The War on Drugs @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
The War on Drugs are still riding high off last year's Lost in the Dream, a slightly psychedelic take on '80s heartland rock that was successful enough to earn them a major label deal for its followup. Tomorrow they headline the huge Radio City Music Hall, but tonight they're at the much smaller Music Hall of Williamsburg (for Jukely members only).
Kurt Vile and the Violators, Waxahatchee, Luke Roberts @ Webster Hall
Kurt Vile returned this year with b'lieve i'm goin down.... It's got plenty of the guitar heroics and clever lyrics we've come to expect from KV, but also new ground is explored including a heavy usage of piano. He's always great live, and these shows should be no exception. Waxahatchee is also supporting a new album, Ivy Tripp, her biggest-sounding record to date (and the current live band is her best yet). Night 2 of 2.
Luna, Diane Coffee @ Bowery Ballroom
Reforming after 10 years off, Luna's VU/Dead-style strum ages extremely well -- they sounded great at Northside this summer. This is their first of three NYC shows this week.
Steely Dan @ Beacon Theatre
Steely Dan are back for another multi-night run at Beacon Theatre and each night is a different theme. No whole album tonight, merely "greatest hits."
Matthew Friedberger @ Mercury Lounge
Fiery Furnaces drummer Matthew Friedberger has been fairly quiet of late -- find out what he's up to tonight, one of a short string of East Coast dates. UPDATE: Cancelled due to illness.
The Field, Heathered Pearls @ Baby's All Right
Stockholm-born, Over in the States for Miami's III Points Fest, Berlin-based electronic guru The Field (a.k.a. Axel Willner) plays this sold-out show tonight.
Mumdance, Sporting Life, Suicideyear @ Elvis Guesthouse
UK producer/DJ Mumdance was last here during Red Bull Music Academy. He's now signed to XL and he's doing this show tonight with Sporting Life (aka Eric Adiele, known for his work as one-third of Ratking).
Mirah, Curt Sydnor @ C'mon Everybody
Contemporary composer Curt Sydnor celebrates his multimedia project Materials and their Destiny in NYC tonight, and the great singer/songwriter Mirah is on board too.
Arkells, Yukon Blonde @ Knitting Factory Brooklyn
Toronto band Arkells make poppy heartland rock like they did in the '80s, as can be heard on 2014's High Noon (though their 2008 debut, Jackson Square, remains their best effort).
Crazy and The Brains, Bike Cops, SHRB @ Cake Shop
Crazy & the Brains inject classic-style punk with a heavy dose of xylophone playing. It works really well, but you have to see it to believe it. Do that tonight.
Buster Pointdexter @ Cafe Carlyle
David Johansen puts back on the tux and Buster Poindexter persona for a night of saucy cabaret.
"You're the Expert" w/ Chris Duffy, Jo Firestone, Scott Adsit @ The Bell House
This is a NY Super Week edition of WNYC's gameshow, this time with Jo Firestone (no stranger to gameshows herself), 30 Rock's Scott Adsit and host Chris Duffy.
Warren Haynes (ft, Jeff Snipe & ChessBoxer), Justin Townes Earle @ The Space at Westbury
Gov't Mule frontman, former Allman Brothers Band member, and frequent Dead family member Warren Haynes wen solo this year with Ashes & Dust, which is a bit folkier than his usual Southern rock/blues/jam blend. He's on tour with different cool openers on different stops, and tonight it's Justin Townes Earle.
For all of tonight's shows, and tomorrow's, check out our NYC concert calendar.
For laughs, check out the NYC Comedy calendar too.

Montreal, Quebec hosts a lot of festivals. This weekend is Pop Montreal (BV will be there, stay tuned for coverage) and in November it's the M for Montreal 2015 edition from November 18-21.

Other artists already announced include The Dears (who just announced a NYC show), Dilly Dally, Yukon Blonde, Hey Rosetta!, Doomsquad, and more.
Most of the M for Montreal 2015 artists are still to be announced but badges and individual show tickets are on sale now. The initial lineup is listed below.

Hey everyone thank you for being part of this. I am really excited to get started recording new music and getting creative with various updates. I have a HUGE amount of music I have been working on for the past 5 years or so that needs to be realized fully. I have all kinds of things planned but am also looking forward to your ideas for different kinds of exclusives as well. So please feel free to interact and help make this something special. This is going to be awesome, fun, nerve racking and the beginning of what I believe is going to open many doors. This is totally based on your participation so if you are planning on picking up my new record anyway, I ask that you just pre-order it now and be a part of making it happen!Sunny Day Real Estate frontman Jeremy Enigk announced that he'll release his first solo album since 2009's OK Bear, and he's currently funding it with a Pledgemusic campaign. He posted the above message to the Pledgemusic campaign, and is promising a variety of exclusive rewards if you donate, which you can do here.
We are at the very beginning of this process so things like artwork, producer and potential collaborators are still to be determined. Keep checking in to watch it evolve.
It's going to be a great year.
Maybe we'll hear some of his new material on the solo tour that he began in San Diego on Saturday (3/28). That tour hits NYC on April 10 at The Studio at Webster Hall with El May and Brian Bonz. Tickets for that show are still available. Updated dates are listed below.
Jeremy also contributed to the recently-released album by Lieutenant, the project of his SDRE bandmate Nate Mendel (also of Foo Fighters). Lieutenant are on tour now (with members of Fleet Foxes, The Bronx and Snow Patrol), having hit NYC's Mercury Lounge on Saturday (3/28) and will play NYC again at Saint Vitus tonight (3/30) with Yukon Blonde and Piers. Tickets for tonight's show are still available, and we're also giving away a pair on Facebook. Apparently there may be a special guest.
Lieutenant and Jeremy Enigk dates, both listed below...
