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

Okkervil River, Landlady, Lip Talk @ Webster Hall
Okkervil River returned earlier this year with Away, which is something new for the band -- it has a jazz/modern-classical influence and it's a little mellower than the older stuff. It's great.

Daughters, Bambara, Jaye Jayle @ Saint Vitus
Providence noise/grind/post-punk greats Daughters don't play too many shows and they haven't put out an album since 2010, but this week they'll do a two-night stand in NYC. Support at tonight's show comes from noisy locals Bambara and Young Widows singer Evan Patterson's solo project Jaye Jayle.

One Prayer One Sin, James Chance, Will Epstein, Paul @ Knockdown Center
This will be a night of dark, sax-fueled music with the swaggering One Prayer One Sin, and No Wave icon James Chance.

Caveman, Cheerleader, Total Slacker @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Having released new album Otero War over the summer, long-running Brooklyn indie rock band play a hometown show with quality openers as well.

WOMANPRODUCER w/ Mirah, Yuka Honda, Val-Inc, Suzi Analogue  @ National Sawdust
The second of The Blow's "WOMANPRODUCER" events and tonight is a roundtable discussion with four musicians who also produce their own records. Mirah fills in for Deradoorian who had to drop out.

Mates of State, Hollerado, Ula Ruth @ Rough Trade
Indie duo Mates of State don't have a new record to plug, so we may be getting a lot of new songs in addition to old favorites. If you're going, be sure to get there in time for underrated Canadian band Hollerado who are a lot of fun live.

Shana Falana, Parlor Walls, Queen of Jeans, Pop and Obachan @ Sunnyvale
Shana Falana make dark dreampop indebted to '80s gothy postpunk, but brings her own style to it. Tonight's the record release show for her new album, Here Comes the Wave.

Kid Millions, Zhang Shou Wang, Alpine Decline @ Trans-Pecos
Oneida drummer Kid Millions has been touring with Beijjing band Carsick Cars, and tonight is a special collaborative, experimental night featuring WHITE+(Carsick Cars' Zhang Shou Wang’s experimental other project), Yan Yulong & Liu Xinyu, and Kid Millions & Zhang Shou Wang. Carsick Cars, proper, will play Baby's All Right on Saturday.

The Orb @ Webster Hall
Chillout pioneers The Orb released one of the most experimental, ambient albums of their career last week. This show, however, is likely to be less somnambulistic.

Medeski, Martin & Cline @ Le Poisson Rouge
Chris Wood is recovering from emergency surgery so tonight John Medeski and Billy Martin will play with Wilco guitarist Nels Cline tonight.

Iron Chic, Greensleep, For Everest, Pass Away @ Aviv
Long Island punk staples Iron Chic have played Greenpoint DIY space Aviv a handful of times, and this will be their very last show there before the venue closes at the end of the month. Reunited LI vets Greensleep provide direct support.

PWR BTTM, Vundabar, Lisa Prank @ Baby's All Right
PWR BTTM's glittery, funny, confrontational pop punk quickly made quite the impact and the band is bigger than ever. They recently signed to Polyvinyl, and while we await their new album, they play two NYC shows this week, this being the first. It's worth showing up early for lo-fi pop punkster Lisa Prank.

The Smith Street Band, The Sidekicks, Laura Stevenson @ Villain
Australian folk punks The Smith Street Band are back on our shores, and they've got two very solid American openers: The Sidekicks, who are sort of a punkier Band of Horses, and punky singer/songwriter Laura Stevenson.

Pennywise, Strung Out, Unwritten Law, Runaway Kids @ Irving Plaza
Pennywise are celebrating their 1995 fan favorite LP About Time by playing it in full on this tour, and direct support comes from metal-ish punks Strung Out. Could be a pretty nice dose of punk nostalgia.

ARMS, The City and Horses @ TURNSTYLE - Under Columbus Circle
All month, Paper Garden Records is throwing this series of free shows at the newly launched TURNSTYLE at the 59th St Columbus Circle Subway Entrance. Tonight's show is headlined by local pop-indie staples ARMS.
