You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Courtney Barnett & Kurt Vile, Jen Cloher @ Loew's Jersey Theatre
Courtney Barnett and Kurt Vile's styles go together perfectly, as proved on this year's collaborative album and on the tour they've been on. Opening is Jen Cloher, whose "Fear Is Like A Forest" is one of the songs that Kurt and Courtney cover on their album.

Flying Lotus is in the midst of his "3D live" tour, with two Brooklyn Steel shows this week. This is the first.
Bell Witch, Primitive Man @ Saint Vitus
Bell Witch recently released their new album Mirror Reaper, a one-song, 83-minute album that goes on an ambitious trip through post-rock, doom metal, and more. They're on tour with Denver sludge band Primitive Man, whose perfectly named album Caustic also dropped recently.
Cattle Decapitation, Revocation, Full of Hell, Artificial Brain, Alekhine's Gun @ Highline Ballroom
San Diego death metal vets Cattle Decapitation are on tour with some great openers, the thrashy Revocation, the grindy Full of Hell, and the weirdo tech-y Artificial Brain.
