You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
2018 MusiCares Person Of The Year: Fleetwood Mac w/ HAIM, John Legend, Lorde, Harry Styles, Keith Urban, Juanes, Miley Cyrus, Alison Krauss, Little Big Town @ Radio CIty
This year's MusiCares Person of the Year gala honors Fleetwood Mac (they're the first "band" to receive the Person of the Year award). Fleetwood Mac will be presented with the award and perform tonight, along with some very famous guests.
Eminem @ Irving Plaza
Eminem is headlining a bunch of festivals this year, including Governors Ball, which was announced as his first headlining NYC show since 2010. Before GovBall, he'll play this MUCH smaller NYC show happening as part of the "Citi Sound Vault" series which leads up to the Grammys. It goes without saying that tickets for this one were very tough to get (they're going for crazy amounts on StubHub).
Cloud Cult @ Lincoln Center's Appel Room (American Songbook)
Lincoln Center's annual American Songbook series continues tonight with indie rock vets Cloud Cult, who released the album The Seeker and a companion feature full-length film of the same name (starring How I Met Your Mother‘s Josh Radnor) in 2016.
Title Fight, Turnstile, King Nine, Nosebleed @ Revolution
Title Fight have been quiet lately but they're emerging for this one-off benefit show "in support of [their] long time friend/tour mate Aaron Warman and his family." Direct support comes from the great Turnstile, whose anticipated Roadrunner debut TIME & SPACE comes out next month.
Talib Kweli ft. Christian Scott & band @ Blue Note
Talib Kweli has been celebrating the 15th anniversary of his classic solo debut, Quality, with a residency at The Blue Note that began this past September. It wraps up with four consecutive nights this week, and there’s a different guest at each night. This is night two.
August Greene feat. Robert Glasper, Common & Karriem Riggins @ Highline Ballroom
As he's done in the past, jazz-hop great Robert Glasper celebrates Grammy week with a guest-filled show including hip hop legend Common and more.
Hamilton Leithauser @ Café Carlyle
“Jacket required” is certainly not a problem for snappy dresser and former Walkmen frontman Hamilton Leithauser who continues his 10-night run at swanky dinner club Cafe Carlyle.
Springsteen on Broadway @ Walter Kerr Theatre
The Boss continues his completely sold-out “Springsteen on Broadway” run at the Walter Kerr Theatre, which has now been extended through June! At these shows, Bruce plans to give fans shows “that are as personal and as intimate as possible.”
Spirit Adrift, Unearthly Trance, Hosianna Mantra @ Saint Vitus
Trad-doom revivalists Spirit Adrift continue to rise, having released 2016's Chained to Oblivion and 2017's Curse of Conception, both of which got some buzz. Direct support tonight comes from the back-in-action NYC staples Unearthly Trance.
Snail Mail, Lomelda, Fits @ Brooklyn Bazaar
Snail Mail recently signed to Matador and they continue to rise in popularity -- this show is sold out. Two other buzzy indie/DIY pop acts, Lomelda and Fits, open.
James Chance & The Contortions, Martin Bisi , D'NT @ The Safari Room at El Cortez
Get a double-dose of old-school New York cool with No Wave icon James Chance, and producer/musician Martin Bisi.
Helado Negro, Cuco, Lido Pimienta @ Elsewhere
Brooklyn's own Helado Negro headlines this sold-out, Governors Ball-presented show but if you're going do get there in time to see Lido Pimienta who won the 2017 Polaris Music Prize.
Kondabolu Brothers podcast recording @ Littlefield
Hari Kondabolu, who you may know from his TruTV documentary The Problem with Apu, has a podcast with his brother Ashok (aka Dapwell, formerly of Das Racist) called 'The Untitled Kondabolu Project.' The podcast is now part of the Earwolf comedy podcast network (How Did This Get Made, Comedy Bang! Bang!, many more) and this is one of a few upcoming tapings at Littlefield.
MO & Cashmere Cat, Darius @ Brooklyn Steel
Cashmere Cat has helped define the sound of modern pop and rap thanks to his work with Kanye West, The Weeknd, A$AP Ferg, Jhene Aiko, Miguel, Tinashe, and more. He’s currently on tour with one of his collaborators, alt-pop singer MO, and they play two nights at Brooklyn Steel concluding tonight.
Le Rug, Fiasco, Lost Boy?, Turbosleaze @ Sunnyvale
Le Rug, the musical pseudonym of Ray Weiss, celebrates the 10th anniversary of his DIY pop debut, Bleenex, with his pals, including the occasionally still together Fiasco. Party like it's 2007, which doesn't sound like a bad idea, and wonder why Team Robespierre aren't playing this show. .
