You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
The Weeknd, Rae Sremmurd, Belly, 6LACK @ Barclays Center
The Weeknd is currently on a massive world tour in support of last year’s hits-filled Starboy. He’s joined by even more hitmakers, Rae Sremmurd, plus Canadian rapper Belly (not to be confused with the rock band), and Atlanta R&B newcomer 6LACK. This is the third of four NYC-area shows this week.
Ween @ Brooklyn Steel
Dean and Gene have had Ween back in action for a couple years now, and tonight is the first of two Brooklyn Steel shows.
Donovan @ Cutting Room (two shows)
Donovan personified the hippy folk ideal, having spent time meditating with the Maharishi, living on a commune and making some of the era's great music. He celebrates the 50th anniversary of "Sunshine Superman" tonight with songs and stories.
Gary U.S. Bonds @ BB King's
With hits like "New Orleans" and "Quarter to Three," Gary US Bonds is a rock and R&B legend who's still going strong at 77. Part of the 2017 Blue Note Jazz Fest,
Chrysta Bell @ Joe's Pub
Chrysta Bell has been making music with David Lynch for most of this decade and you may know her as FBI Agent Tammy Preston on the new season of Twin Peaks. Her music is very much in the Lynchian vein, and she celebrates her new album (which was produced by John Parish and features Stephen O'Malley) tonight.
Black Marble, Body of Light, Public Memory @ Good Room
Chris Stewart makes gothy synthpop as Black Marble and released the underrated It’s Immaterial last year via Ghostly.
Everclear, Vertical Horizon, Fastball, Ruth Ruth @ Irving Plaza
It's a night of '90s nostalgia, with Everclear performing their most popular album, So Much for the Afterglow, in full. Fastball, whose "The Way" and "Out of My Head" were in all the same radio rotations as "I Will Buy You A New Life" and "Father of Mine," make it really feel like the late '90s.
Mutoid Man, Helms Alee, Primitive Weapons @ Saint Vitus
Converge/Cave In offshoot Mutoid Man just released their excellent new album War Moans, and this is their second of two NYC shows in support of it. Both openers tonight are killer too.
Jay Som, Wives @ Rough Trade
Indie rockers Jay Som have deservedly picked up some buzz this year for their new album Everybody Works on Polyvinyl. They play this small headlining show tonight, and then open for Dirty Projectors at McCarren Park later this week.
Portugal. The Man, Electric Guest, Kemba @ Terminal 5
Portugal. The Man are about to release their eighth album Woodstock, and they made headlines earlier this year when the video for the single "Feel It Still" mocked far-right "alternative media" publication Infowars. This is their first of two Terminal 5 shows. If you're going, be sure to get there early for the powerful rapper Kemba (fka YC the Cynic).
Rafiq Bhatia, Qasim Naqvi, Kate Davis @ Threes Brewing
Guitarist Rafiq Bhatia dabbles in jazz, indie, experimental music, and more, and tonight he begins a residency at Threes Brewing. This show has him playing a collaborative set with Dawn of Midi's Qasim Naqvi, who also plays a solo set. Kate Davis plays as well. All proceeds go to SPLC.
