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

Chairlift @ National Sawdust
Chairlift's new album Moth is the most pop-oriented album they've made -- that's not a bad they, they're very good at at it. They celebrate tonight with what is sure to be a very special release show. Sold out.

Alessia Cara, Kevin Garrett, Craig Stickland @ Webster Hall
R&B singer Alessia Cara picked up a lot of buzz last year for her infectious single "Here." It seems like it definitely caught on -- this show has been sold out for a while.

Rich the Kid, T-Wayne, Tate Kobang, TK N Cash, Rejjie Snow @ SOB's
Atlanta rapper Rich the Kid has been doing a ton of notable collaborations lately (and supposedly has one with Frank Ocean coming), and his own material has been sounding promising too.

Lamb of God, Anthrax, Deafheaven, Power Trip @ Starland Ballroom
NWOAHM giants Lamb of God headline this show, but we're especially excited about the openers: thrash legends Anthrax, atmospheric black metallers Deafheaven, and crossover revival greats Power Trip.

G-Eazy, A$AP Ferg, Marc E. Bassy, Nef The Pharaoh @ Terminal 5
A$AP Ferg's new album is supposed to come next month, and the singles we've heard from it so far are making it seem very promising. This is his last first of three T5 shows with G-Eazy, Marc E. Bassy, and Nef The Pharaoh. (Rescheduled from 1/23.)

Dion Lunadon (of A Place To Bury Strangers), Stuyedeyed @ Berlin
Dion Lunadon plays bass in A Place to Bury Strangers and Flowers of Evil (and some other bands too) but has just released his first solo single, which finds him in punk burner mode. For those who want to hear more, catch him tonight.

Buster Pointdexter @ Cafe Carlyle
David Johansen puts back on the tux and his party-friendly Buster Poindexter persona for a night of saucy cabaret.

Cake Shop Comedy @ Cake Shop
If you miss Big Terrific and Hannibal Buress' Sunday night show at Knit, and are looking for a new free, weekly comedy show that happens in a rock club and sometimes has big name talent stop by unexpectedly, "Cake Shop Comedy" might do the trick. Tonight continues Jo Firestone's residency and features guests Clark Jones, Mo Mandel, Mike Lebovitz, Megan Gailey, and Michelle Buteau.
