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

Ghost, Purson @ Terminal 5
Ghost's third album Meliora is out now and it does what they do best -- poppy, riffy rock that's obsessed with the occult. Their theatrical live show is really where it's at though, and you can see that tonight.

Porches, Nap Eyes, Adult Mom @ Brooklyn Flea (50 Kent)
It's the last Brooklyn Flea of the season and helping send them off is a pretty good lineup, including rising band Porches, Canadian act Nap Eyes, and local regulars Adult Mom. 2 PM, free.

Nap Eyes, Tall Juan, DFONTE @ Cake Shop
Nap Eyes, who sound a bit like The Clean or The Modern Lovers or another Lou Reed descendent of your choice, play again tonight.

The So So Glos, Nude Beach, Mannequin Pussy, Big Eyes, Bueno, Bikini Carwash @ Riis Park Beach Bazaar
It's the very last show of the summer at Rockaway Beach venue Riis Park Beach Bazaar, and this one's a full afternoon of quality local-ish punk.

Giggly Boys, Past Life, Naked Heroes, Wild Yaks @ Rippers
While out in the Rockaways you can pretend it's still summer at Ripper's with this rambunctious lineup.

Candiria, Netherlands, Go Deep, Primitive Weapons @ Saint Vitus
Brooklyn's genre-defying heavy band Candiria are reunited and have played a couple hometown festivals (Black N Blue Bowl, Afropunk) but tonight's their first non-fest NYC show of the reunion. Good openers too.

Abigail Williams, Today is the Day, Trenchfoot, Throaat @ Bowery Electric
Black metallers Abigail Williams and noisecore greats Today Is The Day are on the road together, and tonight they hit NYC with quality local support.

Guerilla Toss, Mannequin Pussy, Nine of Swords, Nonsense @ Shea Stadium
New DFA signees Guerilla Toss just released their first EP for the label and celebrate its release tonight.

Arto Lindsay, Zs, Miho Hatori, Mayo Yamaguchi, Tygapaw @ Trans-Pecos
This is the last of Trans-Pecos Sundays in September afternoon series and they have put together another killer lineup of NYC art rock types, headlined today by No Wave great Arto Lindsay.

Christopher Tignor, SYMBOL (Chris King of This Will Destroy You), Christian Frederickson (of Rachel's) @ Littlefield
Christopher Tignor is a frequent collaborator of This Will Destroy You, and tonight he headlines this show with a TWDY member opening.

Jose James (Billie Holiday tribute) @ Blue Note
Billie Holiday would have turned 100 this year. In addition to being an inspiration for the new Lana Del Rey album and the first artist to "play" The Apollo's upcoming hologram concert series, neo-soul singer Jose James will perform her music at a series of shows at the Blue Note this week. 8 and 10:30 PM sets every night through Sunday.

Rachel Platten, Fran Healy, Jenny Owen Youngs, Secret Someones, Tracy Bonham, Nick Howard, Hundred Hounds, The Candles, Wes Hutchinson, Ghosts of St Marks, Albis, 9 Horses @ Brooklyn Bowl
This is a tribute show for the late cellist Daniel Cho who tragically drowned in 2010. All proceeds will go to the Daniel Cho Scholarship Fund.
