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

Buffy Sainte-Marie, A Tribe Called Red, Iskwé @ Central Park SummerStage
Among the free SummerStage shows at Central Park this year is Canadian folk legend Buffy Sainte-Marie, who has stayed active and won the Polaris Music Prize for her 2015 album. Seeing her should be a real treat.

Showtime Goma, Greg Saunier, Nancy Feast, Mikey Hart, Ana Fabrega, Lorelei Ramirez, Tony Kill @ Union Pool
Jen Goma has sung in A Sunny Day in Glasgow, People Get Ready, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart at other groups, but goes solo as Showtime Goma. This is the release party for her debut album, and has put together a very fun night with Deerhoof's Greg Saunier, Nancy Feast (aka Teeny from TEEN) and more.

Raekwon, Stann Smith @ B.B. King's
Having recently rocked Governors Ball as a member of Wu-Tang Clan, and even more recently played the Art-of-Rap-show-turned-Prodigy-tribute in Newark, Raekwon graces his hometown area again with a headlining solo show.

Fit For An Autopsy, Tombs, Moon Tooth, Give Up The Goods @ Knitting Factory Brooklyn
Last month, the great Brooklyn metal band Tombs released their fourth album, The Grand Annihilation, which frontman Mike Hill called "a very dark and introspective record." They're on tour now with Fit For An Autopsy, who are supporting their new album The Great Collapse.

James Chance & The Contortions, Jonathan Toubin @ Our Wicked Lady
The NYC no wave legends headlines this week's SoulScream party on Our Wicked Lady's lovely rooftop, with Jonathan Toubin spinning choice vintage wax.

Electric Six, WYLDLIFE @ Rocks Off Concert Cruise
Cheeky Detroit rockers Electric Six have been at it since the early '00s, still thumbing their noses at the bastards and delivering knowing, over-the-top bravado and danceable riffage.

Bastille Day NY
The French holiday isn't actually till Friday (7/14) but NYC is celebrating today from noon - 5 PM on 60th Street between Lextingon and 5th Ave, with music, food, waiter races, and more. There's also a screening of Dalida -- Lisa Azuelos’ much-anticipated biopic about Egyptian-born Italian singer Dalida who was France’s reigning pop star from the 1950s-1980s -- at Florence Gould Hall at 5:30.
