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

Cam'ron, DJ Wavy @ Knitting Factory
New York rap hero and Dipset member Cam’ron is still going strong, with a couple new songs out this year that hearken right back to his classic early 2000s era. He's playing free shows in Brooklyn tonight and Philly tomorrow, both part of the Heineken Green Room series.

Infinite Bisous, Connan Mockasin (stand-up comedy set), Andrew VanWyngarden (DJ) @ Baby's All Right
New Zealander Connan Mockasin, who just played Full Moon Fest over the weekend, shows off his comedy chops tonight, doing a set of stand-up opening Infinite Bisous (aka Rory McCarthy who has played bass in Connan's band).

GRAMMY Salute To Music Legends w/ Andra Day, Kirk Franklin, Randy Newman, Dwight Yoakam, Catherine Russell @ Beacon Theatre
This is an awards ceremony and tribute concert for The Recording Academy's 2017 Special Merit Award, with Andra Day, Kirk Franklin, Randy Newman, Dwight Yoakam, and Catherine Russell as your performers for the evening. This year's Lifetime Achievement Award honorees are Shirley Caesar, Ahmad Jamal, Charley Pride, Jimmie Rodgers, Nina Simone, Sly Stone, and the Velvet Underground.

John Mellencamp, Emmylou Harris, Carlene Carter, Lily & Madeleine @ Forest Hills Stadium
Heartland rocker John Mellencamp plays tonight with a host of country talent for the Sad Clowns and Hillbillies tour.

Roya, DJ Alix Brown @ Union Pool
Taking cues from early ’60s rock, surf and pop, as well as minimal ’80s indie, Roya's just-released debut album has no shortage of hooky songs.

ARMS, Juan Bond, Detach the Islands @ Saint Vitus
Brooklyn indie staples ARMS are still at it, having released the very catchy Patterns last year.

Bridget Everett & The Tender Moments @ Joe's Pub
Unexpurgated and very funny, Bridget Everett's musical revue is not for the faint of heart or easily embarrassed. But everybody else, get ready to laugh.
