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

Cattle Decapitation, Atheist, Full of Hell, Author and Punisher, Vitriol @ Le Poisson Rouge
Long-running San Diego death metallers Cattle Decapitation dropped their eighth album Death Atlas on Friday and they hit NYC tonight. It's a great record that finds them still exploring new sounds, and Cattle Decapitation have also put together an incredible tour package to celebrate it. This show also has Florida tech-death legends Atheist, grind/noise/etc greats Full of Hell, modern industrial staple Author & Punisher, and Portland DMers Vitriol, making for a great show all around. It starts on the early side (5:30 doors, 6:30 start), so make sure you get there on time.

Phish @ NYCB Live: Home of the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum
Phish are gearing up for another of their New Year's runs at Madison Square Garden this year, but you can see them in the NYC-area sooner than that when their fall tour hits Nassau Coliseum tonight. It's Phish, so it probably goes without saying that at least one or two surprises are in store.

Reverend Billy & The Church of Stop Shopping: Earth Riot @ Joe's Pub
Anti-consumerism activist Reverend Billy preaches his music-filled gospel with his annual holiday show residency at Joe's Pub.

Doug Loves Movies (The 12 Guests of Xmas) @ Gramercy Theatre
Doug Benson is taping one of the annual holiday editions of his podcast Doug Loves for guests, you'll have to attend to find out who they are.

Michelle Buteau @ The Bell House
Comedian, ADULTING co-host and actress Michelle Buteau performs early and late sets tonight.

Reverend Vince Anderson and the Love Choir (1999 Line Up), O’Death, Bruce Martin @ Pete’s Candy Store
Williamsburg's Pete's Candy Store is celebrating its 20th anniversary with some special shows. Tonight's the first, and Pete's actual 20th birthday, with the 1999 lineup of Reverend Vince Anderson & The Love Choir, gothy country vets O'Death, and more.

Fiddlehead, UV-TV, Schematic @ Rough Trade
Fiddlehead share members with Have Heart and Basement, and they kinda sound like the middle ground between those two bands, with the grit of the former and the melodic side of the latter. (They also sound a bit like Shed/Floral Green-era Title Fight.)

Amigo the Devil, King Dude, Twin Temple @ Bowery Ballroom
"Murderfolk" artist Amigo The Devil, noir-country artist King Dude, and satanic doo wop duo Twin Temple should make for an all-around eerie night.

Rhett Miller’s Holiday Extravaganza @ Hill Country BBQ
Rhett usually throws his Holiday Extravaganza at City Winery, but as the venue is in between locations, he's throwing it at Hill Country. Expect some surprise guests.

Ben Lee, Joanna Sternberg @ City Vineyard
Onetime Noise Addict frontman Ben Lee plays this very intimate show (only 100 seats) as part of City Vineyard's "Voices on the Hudson" series.

You can also find quality entertainment on almost any night of the week at: Barbès bar and performance space in Park Slope, LunÀtico in Bed Stuy, Nublu in the East Village, Blue Note jazz club in the West Village, The Stone in multiple locations, Comedy Cellar in the West Village, and Q.E.D. comedy club in Astoria.
