Man Man at Williamsburg Park in 2013 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Gogol Bordello, Ana Tijoux, Man Man @ Terminal 5
Gogol Bordello often play NYC on New Year's Eve, but this year they did it in Philly. However, they're back now for a two-night run which wraps up tonight, and what better time than the weekend after NYE to keep the party going?
Tijuana Panthers, The Garden @ Asbury Lanes
Long Beach, CA's Tijuana Panthers make superior beachy garage rock, as heard on this year's Wayne Interest.
Jonathan Toubin, Juan Wauters, EZTV @ Brooklyn Night Bazaar
It's a "Captured Tracks/New York Night Train HAPPENING!" featuring live sets from Juan Wauters and EZTV, plus Hula Hoop Harlot Melissa Anne, and DJ sets from Toubin and Captured Tracks domo Mike Sniper. That show is free but you can RSVP to skip the line.
Tony Visconti, Suzanne Vega, Richard Barone (The Bongos) Kiah Victoria, Larkin Grimm @ City Winery
Guitarist, producer and frequent Bowie collaborator Tony Visconti is presenting "The TV Show," featuring a host of special guests, including Suzanne Vega, Richard Barone (The Bongos) Kiah Victoria, Larkin Grimm (who we've seen Visconti playing with before) and more to be announced.
Special Guests, Physical Therapy, Person of Interest, J. Albert, Tallesen, Reliever @ Aviv
No word on who the special guests are, but this is already a good lineup of electronic music, and also a good chance to check out Greenpoint's new venue Aviv.
DBX, Rrose & more @ Output
NYC dance party The Bunker is celebrating their 12th anniversary tonight with this great lineup.
Geoff Rickly, Vinnie Caruana, Matty Carlock @ Dante Hall Theater of the Arts (Atlantic City)
Though Thursday is missed, frontman Geoff Rickly has arguably become more active in music than he was with that band. Since then, he's put out music with his band United Nations, No Devotion, and Strangelight, as well as under his own name, and he re-started his record label Collect Records. Tonight he's in solo mode, and one's things for sure: he has no lack of material to pull from. Vinnie Caruana has also been a busy guy lately (his band The Movielife is reuniting this year), and he's in solo mode tonight as well.
Emperor X, eskimeaux, Legs Like Tree Trunks, Family Lumber @ Palisades
While Emperor X has been making DIY pop since the late '90s, lately he's found himself fitting very well into the more modern DIY pop scene with several younger bands that owe a bit to his sound (intentionally or not). One of those, Eskimeaux, shares this bill with him tonight.
