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

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds @ Beacon Theatre
A total legend and showman, with an amazing band and nearly 40 years of great songs at his disposal, no chance to see Nick Cave should be taken lightly.

Bob Dylan @ The Capitol Theatre
Bob Dylan’s last three albums, including this year’s Triplicate, have all been covers albums. But don’t worry, his live shows still include a handful of classic Dylan songs. This is night two of a three-night run at the Cap.

Land of Talk, Half Waif @ Bowery Ballroom
Land of Talk returned this year with their first album since 2010, Life After Youth, which is a little poppier than their earlier stuff but great in its own way. Half Waif, who recently signed to Cascine, makes for a great pairing.

Man Forever, Celestial Shore @ Brooklyn Music School
Man forever is John Colpits who you may know as Oneida drummer Kid Millions. He celebrates the release of his new album, Play What They Want, tonight.

Dawes @ Brooklyn Steel
Last year, folk rockers Dawes released their new album We're All Gonna Die. Tonight they play Brooklyn Steel, billed as "An Evening with Dawes."

Scour, Ampallang Infection @ Saint Vitus Bar
One of the many bands of Phil Anselmo, Scour have Anselmo exploring his black metal side and they released their debut EP last year. The band's lineup is impressive all around, also including John Jarvis (Pig Destroyer), Derek Engemann (Cattle Decapitation), Jesse Schobel (Strong Intention), and Chase Fraser (Animosity).

Celebration, Ice Balloons @ Rough Trade
Having been part of Baltimore scene since the early '00s, Celebration have strong ties to the Brooklyn scene too. Tonight they celebrate the release of their new album, Wounded Healer, and old friend Ky Malone (TV on the Radio) plays with his other band Ice Balloons.
