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

The Waterboys @ Webster Hall
Mike Scott has led The Waterboys since the early-'80s, making anthemic celtic rock with classics like "The Whole of the Moon" and "Fisherman's Blues." They released their 13th album, Where the Action Is, this year.

Tegan & Sara (in conversation with), Phoebe Robinson (in conversation with) @ Barnes & Noble Union Square
Tegan and Sara have been reading excerpts of their new book High School on their current tour but tonight, as you might expect being at a Barnes & Noble, they'll focus solely on the book during an in-depth discussion moderated by comedian Phoebe Robinson. The duo will also stick around to take photos with fans, and sign copies of the book.

Brittany Howard (of Alabama Shakes -- Q&A + signing) @ Rough Trade
Alabama Shakes frontwoman Brittany Howard just released her very good solo debut Jamie this past week, and before she plays a proper show at Beacon Theatre tomorrow, she'll be promoting the new album today by signing copies of the LP, along with holding a Q&A session.

Nick Cave (Conversations With) @ Town Hall
Speaking of Q&A's, Nick Cave is hosting his second sold-out "Conversations With" event in NYC this week, where the legendary artist encourages fans to “ask him anything” in an intimate setting. If you’ve got any burning questions about Nick’s back catalogue or daily routines, chances are he’ll answer them.

EVA @ Guadalupe Inn
You might have heard Brooklyn-based singer EVA's voice before, as she's sung backup for Charli XCX, Blood Orange, and more artists, but she's also steadily released solo material in recent times. Tonight's event is appropriately titled "A Dinner Party With EVA," where a three-course meal is part the show.

Butterboy Comedy @ Littlefield
Jo Firestone, Aparna Nancherla and Maeve Higgins are all hosting tonight’s Butterboy Comedy show, and this week’s guests include Dina Hashem (Conan, Roastmasters), Marie Faustin (Broad City, Comedy Central Stand-up), Lou Sanders (Edinburgh Fringe, The Russell Howard Hour), Devon Walker (Comedy Central's Up Next), and John Hastings (Melbourne Comedy Festival).

Kataklysm, Exhorder, Krisiun, Hatchet @ Market Hotel
New Orleans thrash/groove vets Exhorder just released their first album in 27 years on Friday, and -- save for the crisp, modern production -- it sounds like it could've come straight out of their classic era. They're now on tour opening for Canadian death metal vets Kataklysm, with additional support from Brazilian death metal vets Krisiun and Bay Area thrashers Hatchet.

'Arto Lindsay 4D' @ The Kitchen
Leader of legendary Downtown New York group DNA, Arto Lindsay is the subject of new documentary Arto Lindsay 4D which traces "the musician across Japan, Brazil, Italy, and the United States," and "captures this elusive dimension as navigated by a living legend of the avant-garde." The film makes its world premiere tonight.
