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

Kendrick Lamar & the Wesley Theory, Jay Rock @ Terminal 5
In support of one of 2015's best albums, To Pimp A Butterfly, Kendrick Lamar is playing some intimate shows with a full band and support from his Black Hippy pal Jay Rock. This was moved from Webster Hall to the slightly less intimate Terminal 5, but it's still likely to be a special night.

Prince Rupert's Drops, Hairy Sands, Luscious Skin @ Elvis Guesthouse
Local psych-rockers Prince Rupert's Drops headline this flavored with "the vestiges of halloween costumes, marathon cheer, and saintly solemnity, it will be an intimate, rollicking, freeform, colorful, and transporting autumn night."

Nathaniel Rateliff and The Night Sweats, Land Lines @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Once a folk singer, Nathaniel Rateliff is now more popular than ever with his soul band Th Night Sweats, whose song "S.O.B." has been pretty unstoppable this year.

Fred and Toody (of Dead Moon) @ Union Pool
Fred and Toody from Dead Moon and Pierced Arrows play their second night at Union Pool, hitting songs from throughout their long career together.

Mississippi-via-New Orleans rapper Pell is celebrating his new album LIMBO with three US release shows, one of which is in NYC tonight. It's free.
