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

CHAI, Bodega @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Uncategorizable Japanese band CHAI have their cake and eat it too on their second album, PUNK, which satirizes and criticizes the “kawaii” concept of ultra cute-ness, while doing it in a way that screams KAWAII in all caps. Their live show is super fun, and Brooklyn's own Bodega makes for a great double bill.

Honduras, The Wants, Blood, Cindy Cane @ Baby's All Right
Brooklyn-based Honduras blend driving garage rock with hints of Britpop, which should make for a fun hometown show tonight.

Mike Birbiglia @ Cherry Lane Theatre
Mike Birbiglia regularly tests out new material with "Working it Out" shows that are often last-minute gigs at tiny clubs like Brooklyn’s Union Hall. This summer, Mike will be “Working it Out” at a residency at Manhattan's Cherry Lane Theatre which continues tonight and runs through August 15.

Bettye LaVette @ City Winery
Soul great Bettye LaVette's most recent release was last year's great Bob Dylan covers album Things Have Changed, and there's a chance she could perform some of those songs at this intimate show at  City Winery (which will soon close this location).

Butterboy Comedy @ Littlefield
Aparna Nancherla and Maeve Higgins will host this week's Butterboy Comedy show at Littlefield, and tonight's show features guests Maya May (Boston Comedy Festival), Billy Wayne Davis (Conan), Marina Franklin ("Single Black Female" special), Tom Thakkar (Comedy Central Stand-Up), Khalid Rahmaan (Out of Tune), and Malic White (Comedians You Should Know).

Hectorine, Jeanines, The Weird Years @ Mercury Lounge
NYC's Jeanines, who play middle on this triple bill, made one of the best twee-punk albums of the year with their just-release debut, and probably the best indiepop record of its kind since Veronica Falls’ debut album.
