You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Nada Surf, Aaron Lee Tasjan @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Indie stalwarts Nada Surf's new album Never Not Together is out next week and they'll celebrate tonight in their old Williamsburg stomping grounds.
The Cowboy Junkies @ The Appel Room
The quiet, laconic country sounds of The Cowboy Junkies will sound especially good in Lincoln Center's Appel Room (what a view!) as part of the American Songbook series (never mind that they're Canadian).
Wolf Eyes, Paul Flaherty, Bill Nace @ Union Pool
Detroit experimental noise animals Wolf Eyes kick off a two night stay at Union Pool with help from free jazz saxophonist Paul Flaherty and guitarist Bill Nace.
Torres, Meg Stalter @ The Sultan Room
Torres' very good Merge debut Silver Tongue is out today, and she celebrates with this sold-out release show tonight. She'll also play a larger NYC show at Bowery Ballroom in May.
Red Death, Enforced, Shadowland, Ankle Monitor @ Saint Vitus
As far as modern-day crossover thrash goes, Red Death and Enforced are two of the best and seeing them together is a guaranteed ripper.
Hank Wood and the Hammerheads, Chubby and the Gang, Stigmatism, Pinocchio @ Market Hotel
UK punks Chubby and the Gang recall the late '70s/early '80s punk of their home country, and they've been picking up a good deal of buzz for their new album Speed Kills. They play NYC tonight opening for pretty much the perfect NYC band to go with Chubby's sound: Hank Wood and the Hammerheads.
Roddy Ricch @ Brooklyn Steel
Comton rapper Roddy Ricch is having a real moment right now, thanks to the organic rise of his addictive song "The Box" (which is currently the No. 1 song in the country) and his recent Nipsey Hussle tribute with Meek Mill at the Grammys. He plays Brooklyn Steel tonight, and unsurprisingly, it is sold out.
Chris Farren, Retirement Party, Macseal @ Elsewhere Zone One
Chris Farren, Retirement Party, and Macseal is an all-around very solid indie/punk bill, so if you've got tickets to this sold out show, make sure to catch all three!
You can also find quality entertainment on almost any night of the week at: Barbès bar and performance space in Park Slope, LunÀtico in Bed Stuy, Nublu in the East Village, Blue Note jazz club in the West Village, The Stone in multiple locations, Comedy Cellar in the West Village, and Q.E.D. comedy club in Astoria.
