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

The Decemberists, Julien Baker @ Brooklyn Steel
The Decemberists aren't supporting a new album at the moment, but that's just fine because recent setlists have been pulling from all over their great discography (they've been bringing back "The Tain"!). They're currently on tour with recent Matador signee Julien Baker, whose music should appeal to anyone going to these shows. This is the first of a three-night run at Brooklyn Steel.

Chairlift @ Bowery Ballroom
Brooklyn duo Chairlift are calling it quits but not before three NYC shows...this is the first.

Malcolm Mooney (of Can), BLKLN @ Rough Trade
Krautrock icons Can are celebrating their 50th anniversary, with The Can Project (featuring founding member Irmin Schmidt, original vocalist Malcolm Mooney, as well as Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore and Steve Shelley along with The London Symphony Orchestra) having just played London. Mooney plays this show tonight, who will join him tonight remains to be seen.

Girl Band, Bambara @ Saint Vitus Bar
Ireland’s raucous Girl Band are working on their new album and here to test out new material in America.

The Kitchen Spring Gala w/ Joan As Police Woman, Jonathan Richman, Bryce Dessner of The National, Nico Muhly, James Murphy @ Hammerstein Ballroom
It's The Kitchen's annual Spring Gala fundraiser, which this year honors John Cale. Jonathan RIchman (Cale produced the first Modern Lovers album), and Joan as Policewoman. James Murphy and NIco Muhly are among the afterparty hosts (whatever that means). Tickets are not cheap, starting at $50.
