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

Emmy the Great, Stranger Cat, Aimee Debeer, Will Sheff (DJ Set) @ Baby's All Right
Once known for delicate, emotionally bare folk, Emmy the Great signed to Bella Union and, on her new EP, now has a more lush sound in line with the label's roster (Fleet Foxes, Beach House). She's always been a real charmer live, which we don't imagine has changed. Okkervil River's Will Sheff, meanwhile, DJs in the front room.

Dave Chappelle @ Gramercy Theatre (late show)
After a lengthy vacation from the spotlight, one of our sharpest comic minds returned to the stage a couple years ago. It's good to have him back. Tonight's the last of his Gramercy Theatre run, with 7 PM and 10 PM shows.

Gingerlys, Melt, Leave the Planet, Wild Pink @ Palisades
Tonight's your last chance to catch UK dreampop duo Leave the Planet (worth heading out in the cold for if you like the etherial/indiepop side of shoegaze) and are well pared with locals Gingerlys and Melt.

Night Train @ Littlefield
Phoebe Robinson and The Daily Shows's Jessica Williams (who host UCB's Blaria LIVE!) fill in for Wyatt Cenac tonight, with guests Matteo Lane, Jim Tews, Bryan Babylon, Liza Treyger, and Michelle Billoon.

Colin Hay @ City Winery
Who can it be now? It's former Men at Work singer Colin Hay, who begins his three-night City Winery residency this evening.

Theophilus London, Doja Cat, Father @ Bowery Ballroom
With a unique sense of style and a new album executive produced by Kanye West, Theophilus London puts a new wave spin on R&B. Sold out.
