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

Tricky, In The Valley Below @ Music Hall of Williamsburg (BV Presents)
Trip hop pioneer and pop iconoclast, Tricky continues to do it his was some 25 years into his career, and remains an intense performer. His new album, ununiform, tips its hat back to his early works, featuring his first collaboration with Martina Topley Bird in over 15 years. LA duo In the Valley Below open tonight's BV-presented show.

Syd @ Irving Plaza
Syd proved her talents as a vocalist in the neo-soul group The Internet, and this year she began a solo career, having released the Fin album and the Always Never Home EP, which takes her sound into cold, metallic R&B territory.

Torche, Genocide Pact, Descender @ Saint Vitus
There really isn't any band that mixes sludge metal attack and bubblegum pop hooks as seamlessly as Torche, and their live show is always a killer time.

Joan Shelley / James Elkington @ Union Pool
Folk singers Joan Shelley and James Elkington are on tour together now. The tour is in support of Joan’s new self-titled album and James’ new album Wintres Woma. James plays on Joan’s new album, and he’ll also be playing in her band on this tour.

Kesha, The Black Lips @ Hammerstein Ballroom
Kesha got her career back on track this year with Rainbow, following a long, painful legal struggle with Dr. Luke, who she sued for "sexual, physical, verbal, and emotional abuse." Weirdly enough, tonight garage rockers The Black Lips will open for the pop singer.

Darlene Love @ BB King's
The voice behind “He’s a Rebel” and much of the A Christmas Gift for You from Phil Spector album, Darlene Love is one of the iconic voices of the girl group era.

Night Train w/ Wyatt Cenac @ Littlefield
Wyatt's only got a few editions of Night Train left and tonight he welcomes guests Ari Shaffir, Clark Jones, Marina Franklin, Chanel Ali, The Lucas Brothers, and more.
