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

CHAI, Haiku Hands, Gemma @ Market Hotel
Two of our favorite bands of SXSW share this bill: Japan's CHAI tweak super-cute kawaii conventions with their nuanced pop; while Australia's Haiku Hands energetically revive mid-'00s indie-dance for a new decade.

Clutch, Big Business, The Inspector Cluzo @ Irving Plaza
Between Clutch and Big Business, Irving Plaza is gonna have no lack of badass riffage tonight.

Thursday, Young and Doomed @ Saint Vitus
Thursday have been celebrating their 20th anniversary on this lengthy tour that has seen them playing their classic albums Full Collapse and War All The Time in full. This is the third and final night of a three-night run at the very intimate Saint Vitus, and though these aren’t billed as full-album shows, they’ll probably play tons of classics. They also said they’d only tour again in the event of new music after this, so this may be your last chance to catch them for a while.

DISQ, JW Francis,Noah Chenfeld,DJ Carly Goldberg @ Mercury Lounge
Disq are the Wisconsin-based duo of Isaac deBroux-Slone and Raina Bock, who are both still in their teens and who draw influence from a wide array of music, be it ’70s pop (Todd Rundgren, Big Star), ’90s indie like Weezer and Sloan, and more.

Janeane Garofalo, Gary Gulman, Bonny McFarlane, David Cross @ Littlefield
Janeane Garofalo put together this lineup of some of her favorite comedians.

Jungle, Houses @ Terminal 5
UK dance group Jungle bring their glossy, funky dancepop -- most recently heard on last year's For Ever -- to NYC tonight.

Ryley Walker, anteloper, Special Guests @ Union Pool
Guitar great Ryley Walker is in the midst of this Brooklyn residency where each week he plays with different collaborators.
