GWAR at Housecore Horror 2013 (more by Trent Maxwell)

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

GWAR, Corrosion of Conformity, American Sharks @ Irving Plaza
Oderus Urungus has moved on to a different universe, and GWAR is with a slightly different lineup, but they're powering through and their new stage show is one Oderus would be proud of. Of course at any GWAR show, GWAR is the main attraction, but the openers are not to be missed tonight. There's veteran crossover thrashers turned sludgesters and stoner rock newcomers American Sharks.

Death To All (Death DTA), Obituary, Massacre, Rivers of Nihil @ Best Buy Theater
Death To All pay tribute to one of the most legendary death metal bands there ever was, and their touring lineup frequently features ex-members of Death. Obituary and Massacre are both DM vets themselves, making this whole lineup pretty unmissable for fans of the genre.

Bob Dylan @ Beacon Theatre
Bob Dylan undeniably changed the worlds of folk music and folk rock, and over half a century after the release of his first album he's still going strong. His 36th album is due out next year and right now he's on a tour which continues his five-night run at Beacon Theater tonight. This is night 3.

Run The Jewels, RatKing, Despot @ Stage 48
El-P's a veteran of New York's underground rap scene, and Killer Mike's a veteran of the Outkast-associated Atlanta scene, but against all odds they've come together as one of the most badass, forward-thinking hip hop duos in recent memory, Run the Jewels. Tonight's their second of two Stage 48 shows on this tour.

Planning for Burial, Psychic Teens, Street Sects, Hex Cult @ Grand Victory
Planning for Burial put out the excellent slab of doom-and-gloom, Desideratum, earlier this year which pulled from shoegaze, post-punk and post-rock but most of all was just very very dark. Philly post-punks Psychic Teens are worth catching too.

A-Trak, Fedde Le Grand & Green Lantern @ Pacha NYC
In honor of World AIDS Day (tomorrow), HIV/AIDS prevention foundation Lifebeat is throwing this show which is headlined by Fool's Gold honcho A-Trak.

R. Stevie Moore, Lane Steinberg, Leggy, Vagabon @ Cake Shop
Having just played one of the final Glasslands shows, godfather of lo-fi home recording R. Stevie Moore brings his eccentric (full band) show to Cake Shop tonight.

Fort Lean, Simon Doom, Babydriver, Miles Benjamin Anthony Robinson @ Glasslands
There's one month left of Glasslands and tonight's full of regulars, including Weslean scene vets Fort Lean whose debut album is out in January. The night begins with talent Miles Benjamin Anthony Robinson (who we haven't heard much from lately).

Hot Tuna (acoustic) @ Highline Ballroom
Hot Tuna, the long-running blues duo formed by Jefferson Airplane members Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady, are still kicking like only few others from that late '60s San Francisco scene still are. Tonight they begin a 2-night stand of acoustic shows at Highline Ballroom, and later in December they'll play a full-band show at the Beacon where Airplane vocalist Marty Balin will join them.

Doug Loves Movies @ Gramercy Theatre
Doug Benson comes to NYC for another taping of his very popular podcast.
