You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Bon Iver, Lonnie Holley @ Pioneer Works
Bon Iver's experimental, heavily electronic new album 22, A Million is like nothing he's done before, and it's yet another excellent Bon Iver album in its very own way. Tonight he begins a run of TEN NYC-area shows, with various openers. This show's got cult artist Lonnie Holley.
Windhand, Ilsa, Backwoods Payback @ Saint Vitus
Windhand make melodic doom that's often closer to heavy psychedelic rock than "metal," but whatever you wanna call it, they rip. This is their second of two NYC shows this week with DC death metal crushers Ilsa.
YOA RA UKA (w/ Yoshimio, Yuka C. Honda), Jaiko & Benoit @ National Sawdust
Cibo Matto's Yuka Honda joins Boredoms Yoshimio for her YOA RA UKA project, a two-drummer-and-bass attack which should be something.
