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

Ronnie Spector @ City Winery
It's not Christmas in NYC without some shows from Ronnie Spector, whose voice graced such A Christmas Gift To You From Phil Spector classics as "Frosty the Snowman," "Sleigh Ride," and "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus" as a member of The Ronettes. She plays City Winery tonight and tomorrow.

'Trouble No More' @ Nitehawk
Tonight's the latest in the BV-presented "Music Driven" series at Nitehawk and we're showing Bob Dylan concert documentary Trouble No More which documents his 1979 to 1981 “gospel era” during which Dylan became an Evangelical Christian. There's a post-screening Q&A with director Jennifer Lebeau. 7:30 PM, hope to see you there!

Xeno & Oaklander, Tiers, Public Memory @ Elsewhere (Zone One)
Brooklyn duo Xeno & Oaklander make electronic pop like it's still 1980, using analog gear with patch cables, and other vintage equipment.

Motion Studies, The Flag @ Mercury Lounge
If you pine for the mid-'00s heyday of indie dancepop, Motion Studies are right there with you, calling Hot Chip, New Young Pony Club and the DFA Stable. Opening is The Flag, the experimental electronic pop project from Ted McGrath.

Jean Grae, John Hodgman @ The Bell House
John Hodgman and Jean Grae are back with a new edition of their variety show where they write topics on a carnival wheel, spin it, and talk about those things.

Justin Vivian Bond: Manger Danger! Jesus as a Weapon and a Tool @ Joe's Pub
Justin Vivian Bond’s unique Christmas show continues its run at Joe’s Pub. What is this show all about? We’ll let Justin do the talking: “I think I’m in LOVE with JESUS but it’s difficult because a lot of HIS FOLLOWERS totally HATE ME. (I know, the irony is not lost on me either) Anyway, I’m confused because I’m fully committed to bringing down the patriarchy but I’M TOTALLY CRUSHED OUT ON THE SON OF GOD! Please forgive me for co-opting your holiday to work it out publicly in my new show ‘Manger Danger! Jesus as a Weapon and a Tool.’”

Springsteen on Broadway
The Boss is currently in the midst of his completely sold-out “Springsteen on Broadway” run at the Walter Kerr Theatre, which has now been extended through June! At these shows, Bruce plans to give fans shows “that are as personal and as intimate as possible.”
