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

Spirit Adrift, High Command, Coagula @ Saint Vitus
Once pegged strictly as a "doom" band, Spirit Adrift's third album Divided By Darkness sees them embracing Metallica-sized arena metal, Pink Floyd-ish prog, and more, without losing sight of their roots. Tonight's their first NYC show since the album's release.

Alice Cohen & The Ch. 14 Weather Team, Eyes of Love, Tidal Channel, Bryce Hackford @ Baby's All Right
Alice Cohen, who makes sultry pop influenced by '70s/'80s R&B, funk and disco, celebrates the release of her new album, Artificial Fairytales. (Did U.S. Girls? Check Alice out.) Also on the bill: Eyes of Love, aka Andrea Schiavelli, who used to play in Nude Beach and Punks on Mars.

Justin Townes Earle @ City Winery
Justin Townes Earle says his new album, The Saint of Lost Causes, is a loose concept album about social problems in America, from the Flint, MI water crisis to the shrinking WV coal industry.

The Heavy, Jesse Jo Stark @ Elsewhere Hall
UK band The Heavy (mostly known in America for their hit “How You Like Me Now?”) released their latest LP Sons, back in May which is another dose of their megawatt soul-rock sound.

Stop Making Sense 35th Anniversary screening with Jerry Harrison Q & A @ Nitehawk Prospect Park
Jonathan Demme's film documenting Talking Heads' Speaking in Tongues shows remains an awesome, kinetic viewing experience. Jerry Harrison was supposed be in attendance but, due to a medical emergency, will now be doing the post-screening Q&A via Skype.

Phil Lesh & Friends featuring Jorma Kaukonen @ The Capitol Theatre
The Grateful Dead's Phil Lesh's Phil Lesh & Friends shows are some of the best shows that Deadheads can currently see, and for this two-night stand at the Cap, Phil's band will include another legend of the Haight-Ashbury scene, Jefferson Airplane/Hot Tuna guitarist Jorma Kaukonen. Seeing these two together tonight and tomorrow should be a real treat.

Glen Matlock @ Joe's Pub
Glen Matlock was supposedly fired from the Sex Pistols. That's not true, butlike John Ford once said, "print the legend." He did, however, co-write almost all the songs on Never Mind the Bollocks and has played with Iggy Pop and Rich Kids in the years since. He released Good to Go last year which dabbles in rockabilly and blues rock.
