You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight’s shows, but here are some highlights…
NYC's annual Governors Ball has become one of the Northeast's most major music festivals, and returns today and continues through Sunday. Today's lineup looks pretty great with Chance the Rapper, Flume, Beach House, Lorde, Schoolboy Q, Michael Kiwanuka, Danny Brown, Tove Lo, Bleachers, Charli XCX, Charles Bradley, and more.
Endless Boogie, Stephen Malkmus (host of Q & A) @ Bowery Ballroom
Tonight is a release party both for the new Endless Boogie album, Vibe Killer, but also frontman Paul Major's new book Feel the Music: The Psychedelic Worlds of Paul Major. Before the music, Major will talk record collecting and other subjects with Stephen Malkmus.
Ho99o9, Injury Reserve, NinjaSonik, Sunny Gang @ Brooklyn Night Bazaar
Known for their wild live shows, New Jersey rap/hardcore act Ho99o9 should bring a little mayhem to Brooklyn Night Bazaar. Early show.
Roosevelt @ Brooklyn Bazaar
Electronic pop band Roosevelt play Governors Ball today, and after that, they're doing a late-night GovBall After Dark show at Brooklyn Bazaar.
Mutilation Rites, Luminous Vault, Congenital Death, Shredded @ Matchless
Matchless hosts a night of heavy music, headlined by local staples Mutilation Rites.
TIGUE, Innov Gnawa, Underground System @ National Sawdust
This is a very unique triple bill, with percussion trio TIGUE, Innov Gnawa -- a Brooklyn group who play Moroccan gnawa music -- and the multi-cultural Underground System.
Mark Ronson x Kevin Parker @ Output
Tame Impala's Kevin Parker contributed vocals to Mark Ronson's most recent album; tonight they'll tag-team DJ in Brooklyn before doing the same at Governors Ball on Saturday.
Big Eyes, The Sweet Things, David Strange, The Living Strange @ The Bowery Electric
One of NYC's best kept secrets is melodic punk band Big Eyes. Their latest album is last year's Stake My Claim on Don Giovanni.
Car Seat Headrest, Nap Eyes @ Webster Hall
One of the many GovBall After Dark shows, the increasingly popular Car Seat Headrest should have the crowd singing along. If you're going to this sold-out show, Nap Eyes are worth showing up early.
Bell Biv Devoe, SWV, En Vogue @ Kings Theatre
If you like '90s pop R&B, it's hard to say know to this lineup featuring three of the decade's biggest hitmakers. You can hear "Poison," "Weak" and "My Lovin' (You're Never Gonna Get It)" -- and more -- all over the course of an evening. 8-Ball jackets optional.
Craig Robinson & The Nasty Delicious @ The Bell House
As any fan of The Office knows, Craig Robinson is a talented musician and he brings the funk and his sense of humor to the Bell House tonight with The Nasty Delicious.
The Veldt, Mahogany @ Mercury Lounge
Both The Veldt and Mahogany have been making hybridized shoegaze since the '90s. The Veldt just released a new EP, and Mahogany have been promising a follow-up to 2006's great Connectivity! for some time.
