John Talabot+JDH & Dave P

Output : 10:00 p.m. August 23

The popular Spanish DJ's breakthrough album came out in 2012, but it's the kind of deep listen that can keep you busy for years as you fish through all the crevices he's buried under reverb and a foreground patchwork of sampled vocals. Once inside those tiny caves, you'll find in equal measure... More >>

Brooklyn Dance

Fabolous

B.B. King Blues Club & Grill : 12:00 a.m. August 23

When “Can’t Deny It” was first released, it wasn’t the cool, cocky delivery, chipped-tooth flow, or Nate Dogg’s Makavelian hook that captured everyone’s attention; similarly, “Young’n (Holla Back)” was always more than the sum of its slick... More >>

West 40s Hip-Hop

K. Flay

Brooklyn Bowl : 8:00 p.m. August 25

Often identified as rap's resident smart girl, K. Flay's got the brains and flow to put much of mainstream hip-hop to shame. K. Flay, real name Kristine Flaherty, grew up in suburban Chicago before attending Stanford University, where she began toying with her own brand of rap music as a... More >>

Brooklyn Hip-Hop

Cheap Trick

The Paramount : 8:00 p.m. August 26

Though classic rock heroes Cheap Trick have spent the better part of their career non-stop touring, the band's show at the New York State Fair has the added bonus of unidentifiable fried fair food. Since the group's heyday in the late '70s and '80s, Cheap Trick has been consistently producing... More >>

Long Island Rock

Perfect Pussy+Joanna Gruesome+Potty Mouth+Love of Everything

Shea Stadium BK : 8:00 p.m. August 26

With a sound as confrontational as their name, Perfect Pussy take no prisoners in their live shows, with vocalist Meredith Graves spitting out often incomprehensible lyrics in a speedballing burst of energy. Although her voice is almost obliterated by the thick wall of thundering noise from her... More >>

Brooklyn Alternative

The Polyphonic Spree

Brooklyn Bowl : 8:00 p.m. August 26

A band whose staying power perhaps lies more in their gimmicks than content—twenty-plus members donning white choir robes to black militant getups producing oversized pop songs—the Polyphonic Spree have proven to still have a place in today's indie rock scene, if only for their cult... More >>

Brooklyn Rock

Matt Mitchell Quartet

Korzo : 10:30 p.m. August 26

The pianist is playing with everyone these days, perhaps one reason why he becomes more authoritative. Some of his music has a tendency to be knotty, but engagingly so. Consider it a puzzle of sorts, and consider drummer Dan Weiss a key decoder. Both he and Mitchell are dedicated to the kind of... More >>

South Park Slope Jazz

'MetroStar Talent Challenge'

Metropolitan Room : 7:00 p.m. every Mon. until August 25

For the seventh year running the room has made a July-August point of ferreting out up-and-coming cabaret talent. Sometimes you wonder why anyone would want to make a career doing this. It’s that difficult and often only intermittently rewarding. But still they come, the gifted and the... More >>

Flatiron Variety

Dave Douglas Quintet

Birdland : 8:30 p.m. daily until August 23

They mess with polyphony now and again, and those sections of their hard-swinging book are some of the joyous in modern jazz. Douglas does a superb job of giving everyone the green light for personal expression while maintaining the architecture of his wily tunes, and from Jon Irabagon to Rudy... More >>

West 40s Jazz

Daryl Sherman

Peacock Alley : 5:30 p.m. August 27

She’s back where she’s played so effortlessly for so many years. Not only that, but she’s evidently back tickling Cole Porter’s old piano as lightly as she knows how. Don’t expect much singing, or any, for that matter. Never mind. She’ll work her spell... More >>

East 40s Piano

Chicha Libre

Barbes : 9:30 p.m. every Mon.

In addition to being a popular alcoholic beverage, "chicha" also signifies the psychedelic style of cumbia fermented in Peru's Amazonian rainforests during the '70s. This terrific Brooklyn combo features One Ring Zero accordion wizard Josh Camp and members of Las Rubias del Norte. They open a... More >>

Park Slope Rock

Jim Caruso & Billy Stritch

Bemelmans Bar : 9:00 p.m. every Sun.

Two of the town’s most sophisticated goofballs sing, play and generally throw a party not exactly like the one the pair of them toss at Birdland on Monday nights but just as much fun. They’ve got something of that old Bob Hope-Bing Crosby chemistry going for them, which ain’t... More >>

East 70s Lounge

Mandingo Ambassadors

Barbes : 10:00 p.m. every Wed.

Guinean guitarist Mamady "Djelike" Kouyate came of age among such legendary 1970s guitarcentric combos as the Horoya Band and Bembeya Jazz, which blended Cuban rumba with traditional balafon-based sounds. Kouyate moved to New York in search of political asylum in 2004 and currently leads this... More >>

Park Slope African

'Mobile Mondays' w/ Operator EMZ+Joey Carvello+Natasha Diggs+Just Blaze+Misbehaviour+$$$Mike

Bowery Electric : 10:00 p.m. every Mon.

Anyone can queue MP3s through Serato, some can play sets with their collection of 12-inches, but a DJ night with only 45s? Until a backward-looking Brooklyn dive attempts to throw a party where DJs have to stick to wax cylinders, no one is going to touch Bowery Electric’s Mobile Mondays,... More >>

Noho DJ

Slavic Soul Party!

Barbes : 10:00 p.m. every Tue.

Slavic Soul Party are Eastern Europe's answer to the funk (and "Grunt") of the J.B.'s or, more recently, the Budos Band. On their recordings, and every Tuesday at Barbès, the 10-person brass ensemble pins Gypsy melodies against the sort of jazzy r&b horn collages you hear in movies... More >>

Park Slope World, Rock

Billy Joel

Madison Square Garden : 8:00 p.m. September 17; 8:00 p.m. October 2; 8:00 p.m. November 25; 8:00 p.m. December 18

Las Vegas was once the go-to spot for legendary musicians looking to settle down for a residency, but it looks like MSG and Billy Joel have found a way to take that concept home to New York. After playing a New Year's Eve show at Barclays, the Bronx-born, Long Island-bred performer, who has... More >>
