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

Taking Back Sunday @ Irving Plaza
Having just played their annual holiday shows at NJ's Starland Ballroom, Taking Back Sunday now play this last-minute small NYC show where they'll perform their first three albums start to finish.

Ed Askew Band, Dark Tea, Jemez @ The Glove
Psych-folk legend Ed Askew has music dating back to the late '60s and he's still active today. It's a real treat that he plays as often as he does, and any chance to catch him is worth taking.

It's the Kanine Records Holiday Party that features both The Natvral (aka Kip Berman or Pains of Being Pure at Heart) and Nicole Yun (Eternal Summers) making their live debuts with backing bands, plus Canadian band Tallies, and Honey Cut. There's a hosted open bar from 8-9 PM, BV's Bill Pearis is one of the front room DJs, and it's free.
