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

Hans Zimmer @ Radio City Music Hall
Composer Hans Zimmer is one of the most in-demand, innovative in the business, having scored most of Christopher Nolan’s films (including the just-released Dunkirk), the Pirates of the Caribbean films, Gladiator, The Thin Red Line, The Lion King, and lots more. Tonight's show he'll play selections from his most popular film scores, which will also feature “guests from the rock and pop world” as well as a light show designed by Marc Brickman (Pink Floyd, Nine Inch Nails).

Phish @ Madison Square Garden
Phish are on night four of their "Baker's Dozen" run at MSG. Each show has a different flavored donut to go with it, and themed songs to match the flavor throughout their sets. Tonight's show is jam-filled... raspberry jam, that is.

Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Mephiskapheles @ Webster Hall
Ska-punk vets The Mighty Mighty Bosstones are celebrating the 20th anniversary of their popular 1997 album Let's Face It by playing it in full on tour this year. The tour hits NYC and also has upcoming shows in New Haven and NJ.

Chuck Mosley, Pushing Sides, Unusual Squirrel @ Union Hall
Before Mike Patton fronted Faith No More, Chuck Mosley was their vocalist, having sung on their first two albums, 1985's We Care A Lot and 1987's Introduce Yourself. He's stayed busy with other projects over the years (including briefly filling in on vocals for Bad Brains), and plays Brooklyn in solo form tonight.

Jidenna @ Gramercy Theatre
More than just "Classic Man," Jidenna released his debut album The Chief this year, and it bounces between Afrobeat, hardcore rap, trap, and more, and Jidenna handles all of his various sounds with ease.

Rod Stewart, Cyndi Lauper @ PNC Bank Arts Center
With an unmistakable rasp, Rod Stewart’s hit-making career went from the ’60s through the ’90s, Tonight he plays with ’80s star Cyndi Lauper (who’s still going strong).

Tee Grizzley, Maliibu Miitch and Snoo @ S.O.B.'s
Detroit rapper Tee Grizzly has been getting some love this year for his debut project My Moment. He recently played NYC when he was opening the 21 Savage/Young M.A tour, and now he's back to headline SOB's.

Billy Bragg @ City Winery NYC
While Billy Bragg is known for his outspoken politics, it's his songs about the tug-of-war that are romantic relationships where his songwriting really shines. Live, he's just as entertaining talking between songs as he is when playing his many classics, and getting to see him in an intimate venue like City Winery should be a treat.

Bridget Everett @ 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, it’s a hoot.

Collapsing Scenery, James Chance, Miho Hatori (of Cibo Matto) @ Pyramid Club
Don DeVore, the main guy behind Collapsing Scenery, put together this cool-sounding show with no wave icon James Chance and Cibo Matto's Miho Hatori which is happening at Avenua A mainstay The Pyramid.
