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

Leave the Planet, Wildhoney, Dead Leaf Echo, Beliefs @ Cake Shop
Dreampop, shoegaze, whatever you call it...if you like this kind of stuff, tonight's a pretty unmissable show, featuring four worthy bands from three countries: Baltimore's Wildhoney, Toronto's Beliefs, Brooklyn's Dead Leaf Echo and, making their US debut, London band Leave the Planet.

Vessel, Container, Noveller @ The Wick
This is an excellent bill for fans of leftfield stuff, with two noisy electronic musicians, Vessel and Container, and guitar soundscaper Noveller.

Luke Temple, The Heaven's Jail Band @ Union Pool
Here We Go Magic frontman Luke Temple released Good Mood Fool 2013, that found him bathing in warm funk and gentle reggae, giving things an enjoyably mellow vibe. Maybe tonight he'll fill you in on what he's been up to lately.

Hive Mind, Uniform @ Home Sweet Home (Nothing Changes)
This installment of the Nothing Changes party will be a noisy one, with Chondriotic Sound label boss Greh's droning, pulsing project Hive Mind, and the hardcore-informed noise duo Uniform (ex-Drunkdriver, The Men).

Algiers, The Flag @ Mercury Lounge
New Matador-signed soul/goth/industrial band Algiers play their second of three NYC shows this week.

Big Terrific @ Cameo
Max Silvestri hosts the free weekly comedy show in the back of Williamsburg's Cameo. No word on who's performing tonight, but Max usually lets us know via his Twitter.
