You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Curren$y @ BB King's
Consistently great New Orleans rapper Curren$y is saying his Pilot Talk 3 will drop this year, but while we wait for more details on that, he's busy on tour. Tonight's show was rescheduled from 3/5.
Jenny Hval, LODRO, Softspot @ Alphaville
Norway's Jenny Hval recently put out a track from her upcoming album on Sacred Bones, and it has her eccentric art pop sounding great as ever. She recently played a big NYC show with Perfume Genius, but tonight's going to be much more intimate.
Cam Avery @ Elvis Guesthouse
A live member of Tame Impala who also fronts his own band, The Growl, Cam Avery is doing a free solo set at tonight at 9 PM. Matt Asti, who plays bass in MGMT's touring band, will be DJing.
They Might Be Giants @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Longtime Brooklyn residents TMBG are playing a series of shows at MHOW and tonight they'll be playiing Flood in full, plus many of the Dial-a-Song favorites and more. Sold out.
WAND, Honey @ Mercury Lounge
LA band WAND make glammy, heavy rock that's not too far away from what former tourmate Ty Segall does, but they're not afraid to thicken things with vintage analog synths. They're terrific live. This is their second of two NYC shows.
Sapphire Mansions, Owen Cohen, RickLus @ Cameo Gallery
If you have an appreciation for the C-86 sound or are familiar at all with early '80s Cherry Red Records or Creation (especially Felt), you will probably dig Sapphire Mansions' brittle, poppy, organ-driven sound.
Mourn, EZTV @ Baby's All Right
Barcelona's Captured Tracks-signed Mourn make a very promising mix of punk and indie rock inspired by heroes like PJ Harvey and Patti Smith. Tonight's their first of two NYC shows on their first-ever US tour and they play with label mates EZTV.
Night Birds, No Problem, Sonic Poison, Nuclear Santa Claust @ Acheron
A handful of punk bands come together for this show which is a benefit for Ensign's Nate Gluck, who's sadly battling cancer.
LEGACY OF THE WITCH: A SLUTIST FEMINIST FESTIVAL @ Saint Vitus
Tonight Saint Vitus hosts this feminist music festival with performances from Gospel of the Witches (Karyn Crisis's new band), Azar Swan, Delphic Oracle, Chicava HoneyChild, The Reverend Mother Flash, Severely Mame, Minx Arcana, and Pam Grossman.
Deborah Harry @ Cafe Carlyle
Blondie singer Deborah Harry continues her residency at Upper East side cabaret supper club Cafe Carlyle tonight. It runs through April 4.
