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

Laura Marling, Villagers @ Warsaw
On her terrific new album, Short Movie, Laura Marling goes widescreen electric with bigger ambitions and arrangements. But her folk roots still shine through. If you're going to tonight's sold-out show, do get there in time for Villagers, aka Irish singer-songwriter Conor O'Brien whose new album will be out next month.

The Music of David Byrne & Talking Heads @ Carnegie Hall
Michael Dorf's annual charity tribute concert at Carnegie Hall happens tonight with Rufus Wainwright, Steve Earle, Sharon Jones, Amanda Palmer & Jherek Bischoff, Cee-Lo Green, Beth Orton, and lots more performing the songs of David Byrne & Talking Heads. Antibalas are the backing band.

Jon Spencer Blues Explosion @ Liedy's Shore Inn
The JSBX release their cracking new album Freedom Tower: No Wave Dance Party 2015 this week and are celebrating by playing shows at dive bars in every borough. Tonight brings them to Staten Island's Liedy's Shore Inn. It's free.

Night Train @ Littlefield
It's a good Night Train this week, as Kurt Braunohler and Kristen Schaal, who used to host "Hot Tub" at Littlefield, are "hijacking" the show. Guests include Eugene Mirman, Phoebe Robinson, Jessica Williams, Matt Wayne, Alingon Mitra, and Michael Palascak. Unsurprisingly, it's sold out.

The Preatures, Long Nails, The BOTS @ Rough Trade
Ever wonder what it would be like if The Strokes and Haim were one Australian band. It might sound a little like Sydney's The Preatures, who are stopping here post-SXSW. Sold out.
