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

Dalek, Publicist UK, Azar Swan @ Saint Vitus Bar
Industrial rap crew Dalek headline tonight, with support from Relapse-signed Publicist UK (who are from Brooklyn) and gothy pop act Azar Swan.

Kamasi Washington @ Blue Note (2 shows)
Jazz musician Kamasi Washington has been having a pretty busy year. He appears on Kendrick Lamar and Thundercat's new albums, and he also has his own, The Epic, out on Flying Lotus' Brainfeeder label (Thundercat features on that album too). Tonight he begins his two-night stay at the Blue Note with 8 PM and 10:30 PM sets each night.

Tweens, Moral Panic @ Cake Shop
Cincinnati garage pop trio Tweens haven't reinvented the wheel or anything, but their live show is a high-energy sugar rush. They're super fun.

Graham Nash @ City Winery
In addition to being a member of The Hollies and one of folk rock's most famous supergroups ever, Graham Nash has a very worthy solo career, including the classic 1971 LP Songs for Beginners. You'll likely hear stuff from all three of those things and more tonight.

Sam Cohen, Adrienne Lenker, Keenan O'Meara @ Manhattan Inn
Part of this intimate Greenpoint venue's "At the Inn" series, tonight's features onetime Yellowbirds and Apollo Sunshine frontman Sam Cohen, whose solo debut from this year is well worth checking out. Free but donations are suggested.

Sun Club, Fake Palms, Fern Mayo, Nap @ Palisades
Toronto's Fake Palms make low fi post-punk, not entirely dissimilar to Women and Viet Cong, though with a little more straightforward songwriting. (Not a bad thing at all.)

Baked, Zula, Flagland, Gnarwhal, Fond Han @ Silent Barn
You may know a thing or two about '90s indie rock being back, and one of the most consistently solid homes for those types of bands is Exploding In Sound Records. The label is throwing an extended weekend of shows in Brooklyn and Boston, which continues tonight.

"Ask Me Another" @ The Bell House
Another in NPR's "Ask Me Another" live quiz show tapings, tonight features Sonia Manzano and Emilio Delgado who you might know better as Sesame Street's Maria and Luis.

Chris Gethard: Career Suicide @ Union Hall
It's another night of Chris Gethard's Career Suicide shows, for which he promises "an hour of stand up focusing on suicide, alcoholism, and all the other funniest parts of life."

Night Train w/ Wyatt Cenac @ Littlefield
This is an extra-loaded Brooklyn Comedy Festival edition of Night Train, with guest host Seaton Smith, plus Nick Turner, Myq Kaplan, Michelle Buteau, Kevin Barnett, and Charles McBee.
