A trip to Mexico may not be in our cards today, but there are hundreds of ways to celebrate Cinco De Mayo in the city tonight.  Get a spray tan, don your most festive duds and start happy hour early with some margaritas in lieu of lunch, since the 5th of May only comes once a year. There are too many parties to choose from around NYC tonight but here are a few key shows we’re going to try to fit in between tacos and mezcal toasts.

Mad Juana plays the Cinco De Mayo party at Bowery Electric

Gospels plays Coco66, presented by Two Flies on Grey Velvet. Other acts include Computer Magic, CH-Rom and Punks on Mars

The Fiery Furnaces play an intimate set at Rockwood Music Hall
