You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Florence and the Machine, Kamasi Washington @ Barclays Center
Florence + the Machine is touring behind her great fourth album High As Hope. The album sounds larger than life, and her live shows feel even larger. Crossover jazz great Kamasi Washington makes for excellent support.
serpentwithfeet, Lee Mo @ Elsewhere Hall
serpentwithfeet combines R&B, indie, electronic music, classical music, and more on his excellent 2018 debut album soil (out now on Secretly Canadian/Tri Angle). Tonight's one of his largest headlining NYC shows yet.
Gruff Rhys, Lorkin O'Reilly @ Rough Trade
Super Furry Animals frontman Gruff Rhys is always a charmer live, and after a few solo acoustic tours, he's out with a band to support his latest album, Babelsberg.
The Scientists, Des Demonas, SAVAK @ Union Pool
Australian punk legends (and proto-grunge influencers) The Scientists are on their first-ever U.S. tour, which wraps up with these Union Pool shows tonight and Wednesday.
Denzel Curry, Kid Trunks @ Gramercy Theatre (two shows)
Denzel Curry made one of the finest alternative rap albums of the year with TA13OO, and his live shows can be truly nuts. He plays Gramercy Theatre twice in one night tonight.
Modest Mouse, Tropical Fuck Storm @ Kings Theatre
It's been a while since Modest Mouse have put out a new album, but they always stay busy on the road and their career-spanning live sets are always killer. Tonight's a great double bill with Australia's Tropical Fuck Storm, whose undefinable A Laughing Death In Meatspace is one of the year's eccentric gems.
Lykke Li, TiRon & Ayomari @ Terminal 5
Lykke Li went in a hip hop/R&B direction on this year's so sad so sexy, and though it's very different for her, this sound suits her well too.
A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie @ The Wellmont Theater
Fast-rising Bronx rapper is on the road, having just played Long Island last night and hitting Montclair, NJ tonight.
Quelle Chris, Pink Siifu, Amani, Armand Hammer, Ted Kamal, Aka $olo @ H0l0
This is a stacked bill all around of artists who have made some of this year's best indie/experimental rap albums, including Quelle Chris (whose album was a collaboration with Jean Grae), Pink Siifu, and Armand Hammer (aka Billy Woods + Elucid).
Pete Rock, Nina Azucar, Tony Touch, Smif-N-Wessun @ Cielo
The Toca Tuesdays 10th anniversary celebration at Cielo continues, this time headlined by legendary New York rap producer Pete Rock. There's also a special guest appearance from NY rap vets (and Pete Rock collaborators) Smif-N-Wessun.
The English Beat @ City Winery
Dave Wakeling released the first new English Beat album in 35 years back in the spring, but you can still expect a set made up mostly of their classics (and maybe a couple General Public songs too).
Eagles @ Madison Square Garden
With Don Henley being the only original member left in The Eagles (though Joe Walsh and Timothy B Schmit have been in the group since the '70s), the current lineup -- which includes Vince Gill and Don Henley and Glenn Frey's sons -- bring their many hits to MSG
Elton John NYCB LIVE at Nassau Coliseum
Elton John's massive "Farewell Yellow Brick Road" goodbye tour, which runs well into next fall, hits Long Island tonight, the first of 11 NYC-area shows he'll be doing.
The Presets, Blood Red Shoes @ Brooklyn Steel
Australian dance duo The Presets wrap up their North American tonight which is in support of their fourth album, HI VIZ.
