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

Daughter, Vancouver Sleep Clinic @ Terminal 5
UK band Daughter returned earlier this year with Not To Disappear, a very somber, very emotional album with songs that are just as gripping live.

The Veils, Blonder @ Bowery Ballroom
The Veils returned earlier this summer Total Depravity, their fifth album (and first in three years), which found their melodramatic rock still at a high pitch.

Primal Scream @ Irving Plaza
On their latest album Chaosmosis, Scottish indie vets Primal Scream mix together rock, dance and dub.  This is their first of two NYC shows this week.

Pavo Pavo @ Rough Trade
Brooklyn's ethereal rock band Pavo Pavo celebrate this week's release of their debut album, Young Narrator In The Breakers, tonight with this free show. 6 PM.

Slothrust, Big Ups, Mal Blum @ Rough Trade
Three local regulars come together tonight, including the grungy Slothrust, confrontational post-hardcore band Big Ups, and the Don Giovanni-signed singer/songwriter Mal Blum.

Steve Reich 80th Birthday @ Carnegie Hall
"A zeppelin explodes, a nuclear bomb is tested, a sheep is cloned, and a robot casts its beatific gaze on you. Three Tales, a visionary opera created by Steve Reich with video artist Beryl Korot, has it all. You can experience this rarely performed, mind-stretching event along with performances of Quartet, a work scored for two pianos and two vibraphones, and the world premiere of Pulse, a work co-commissioned by Carnegie Hall." Happy birthday, Steve!

Louis C.K., Jerry Seinfeld, Jim Gaffigan, Bruce Springsteen, Jon Stewart @ Theater at Madison Square Garden
This is the 2016 edition of Stand Up for Heroes benefit that also marks the start of this year's NYC Comedy Festival.

Kevin McDonald (Kids In The Hall), Ted Leo, Rachel Dratch @ Union Hall (NY Comedy Fest)
Also part of NYCF, this is a live taping of Kids in the Hall's Kevin McDonald's podcast, and he'll welcome guests Ted Leo and former SNL castmember Rachel Dratch.

S U R V I V E, Dust Witch @ WFMU Monty Hall
After years of making eerie synthesizer music with not much fanfare, Austin band S U R V I V E giant a giant boost when the series they scored, Stranger Things, was a huge hit.

Blaenavon, Hazel English, Pretty Sick @ Baby's All Right
British rockers Blaenavon have picked up some buzz for their sound that hearkens back to the previous decade's Britrock bands (there's some Kooks and some Maccabees in there), and they'll put out their debut LP in 2017 via Canvasback/Atlantic. Tonight they make their NYC debut. Support comes from Hazel English (who Stereogum just named an artist to watch) and local lo-fi indie rockers Pretty Sick. The same lineup also plays Berlin tomorrow.

Tobacco, Public Memory @ Brooklyn Bowl
Black Moth Super Rainbow frontman Thomas Fec released the new album Sweatbox Dynasty with his solo project Tobacco earlier this year, which any fans of ultra-weird electronic pop might dig. He's in the midst of a three-show Brooklyn Bowl residency, this being the second show.

Trash Talk, Antwon, Black Noise @ Brooklyn Night Bazaar
Trash Talk are a genuinely crazy hardcore band, whose shows are always a huge mess (in a good way). They've also got a lot of crossover with rap fans, so it makes sense that they're currently touring with noisy rapper Antwon.

Anderson, Rabin & Wakeman (ARW) @ Beacon Theatre
While not officially Yes, these three were all a part of the British rock icons' lineup over the years and will be playing songs from throughout that band's catalog, including the '70s prog years (which Wakeman was a part of) and their '80s pop years (which featured Rabin).

Cake Shop Comedy @ Cake Shop
If you miss Big Terrific and Hannibal Buress’ Sunday night show at Knit, and are looking for a new free, weekly comedy show that happens in a rock club and sometimes has big name talent stop by unexpectedly, “Cake Shop Comedy” might do the trick.

SWEET w/ Seth Herzog @ The Slipper Room
Seth Herzog hosts this long-running comedy night that always features great guests.
