Blake Mills

Le Poisson Rouge : 7:30 p.m. October 1

The White Dude with a Guitar thing has been going on for a while — like, since the instrument was invented and people had emotions they wanted to sing about. But in recent years, locking yourself up in a room and writing songs about heartbreak has become a bit of a cliche. Who's to blame?... More >>

Greenwich Village Singer-Songwriter

Tove Lo

Webster Hall : 9:00 p.m. October 1

Swedish singer-songwriter, Tove Lo is entering legit pop star territory with her chart-storming “Habits." It's a cathartic tale of nursing a broken heart by binging, going to sex clubs and throwing up in the tub with an infectiously anthemic power pop chorus. Though her songs are in the... More >>

East Village Pop


Trans-Pecos : 8:00 p.m. October 2

Not only do experi-metallers Charlie Looker (of Zs, Extra Life, Seaven Teares and Period) and Andrew Hock (formerly of Castavet) inflict their drum machine-bashing, melodic avant-metal torture all over the Brooklyn DIY underground pantheon as Psalm Zero, the terrorizing twosome have managed to... More >>

Ridgewood Metal


Saint Vitus : 8:00 p.m. October 3

There's always been something scruffy about this on-again, off-again NYC crew. Ostensibly punk, Cro-Mags songs plow ahead with a not-inconsiderable weight - but these guys embrace ponderousness to the extent that they're not hardcore, and three-cord riffage arrives outfitted with enough butt...

Brooklyn Hardcore

Avey Tare's Slasher Flicks

Webster Hall : 6:00 p.m. October 4

"Animal Collective on Halloween" is a reductive way of summarizing the vibe of Avey Tare's new band with members of Ponytail and Dirty Projectors. Debut Welcome to the Slasher House leans on a decidedly more bumptious sense of rhythm, laying on greasepaint murk, dinky pop, and cheap sound... More >>

East Village Alternative

La Roux

Terminal 5 : 8:00 p.m. October 4

In 2009, La Roux got stuck in our heads with hooks like "Going in for the kill, doing it for the thrill," and "this time baby, I'll be bulletproof." After some time under the radar, the British singer/producer duo hit us with a new album this past July, Trouble in Paradise, reminding us of all... More >>

West 50s Pop

Lykke Li

Radio City Music Hall : 8:00 p.m. October 4

Lykke Li has had a busy fall: not only were her vocals featured on U2's surprise new album, but the Swedish songstress is also making a stop on her current tour at New York City's historic Radio City Music Hall. The show comes in support of her May-released third album, I Never Learn, her most... More >>

West 40s Pop

Big Freedia+Le Chev (DJ Set)+Friendly Ghost

The Glasslands Gallery : 11:30 p.m. October 4

We should thank Big Freedia for bringing the very spirited New Orleans style of hip-hop — bounce music — to the masses. Every Big Freedia show is an energized, raucous party with a lot of twerking. In fact, you probably won't catch one of his shows without audience members twerking... More >>

Brooklyn Dance

Grace Kelly

Iridium : 7:00 p.m. October 5

Korean-American saxophonist, composer, and vocalist Grace Kelly celebrates the release of Working for the Dreamers, an impeccably produced smooth jazz EP that sails along with enough of a tailwind to avoid getting grounded in an elevator. Sade with a touch of mentor Lee Konitz, and boasting a... More >>

West 50s Jazz

The Blood Brothers

Warsaw : 7:00 p.m. October 5

You patiently waited through all of the cheesy 10 year anniversary tours and band reunions of the last year (Brand New, Senses Fail, really?), hoping for something a bit less whiny. You cursed at your computer when you saw the Blood Brothers announced they would be reuniting for the annual FYF... More >>

Greenpoint Rock

Limp Bizkit+Machine Gun Kelly

The Paramount : 7:00 p.m. October 6

If you stopped to read this blurb on why you should attend a Limp Bizkit concert, that's probably a sign that you should attend a Limp Bizkit concert. You were 16 once. You probably aren't originally from New York, and when you hear the words "Fred Durst" you think about that backwards baseball... More >>

Long Island Alternative

Charli XCX

Webster Hall : 8:00 p.m. October 7

Pop’s latest grunge-glam princess, Charli XCX is bringing her spunky sashay to Manhattan tonight. Topping a stacked bill that includes more girl power pop — Elliphant and Femme — Charli will take the stage and, hopefully, reveal some of what she’s been working on for her... More >>

East Village Pop

Gardens & Villa

Bowery Ballroom : 8:00 p.m. October 7

With a band name like Gardens & Villa, one would expect a continental sound and a certain level of refinement as the bare minimum. Thankfully the Santa Barbara five-piece has achieved all this and more since 2011 when Secretly Canadian released their self-titled synth-driven pop debut Dunes.... More >>

Lower East Side Indie Rock

Perfume Genius

Music Hall of Williamsburg : 9:00 p.m. October 7

As a sort of queer icon for the underground set (think the opposite of Lady Gaga), Perfume Genius, otherwise known as Seattle-based artist Mike Hadreas, has been turning heads with his excellent just-released album, Too Bright. The album builds upon Perfume Genius' quiet genius of 2012's Put... More >>

Brooklyn Indie Pop

Limp Bizkit+Machine Gun Kelly

Best Buy Theater : 8:00 p.m. October 8

If you stopped to read this blurb on why you should attend a Limp Bizkit concert, that's probably a sign that you should attend a Limp Bizkit concert. You were 16 once. You probably aren't originally from New York, and when you hear the words "Fred Durst" you think about that backwards baseball... More >>

West 40s Rock, Rap, Alternative

Mary Halvorson's Reverse Blue

Cornelia Street Café : 8:00 p.m. October 2; 9:00 p.m. October 3

Thanks to constant work, the guitarist's ideas are boundless these days. She's built this quartet around reed player Chris Speed, bassist Eivind Opsvik and drummer Tomas Fujiwara to enjoy textural gambits and counterpoint experiments. Abstraction is the welcome mat of their new album on the... More >>

West Village Jazz

Fleetwood Mac

Madison Square Garden : 8:00 p.m. October 6; 8:00 p.m. October 7

Calling this tour “On With the Show” is significant for Fleetwood Mac in more ways than one. Following their 2013 tour, bassist and founding member John McVie was diagnosed with cancer. Within a few months, former keyboardist and singer Christine McVie announced her return to the... More >>

Chelsea Classic Rock

Chita Rivera

Birdland : 8:30 p.m. daily from October 7 until October 11

She’s just back from Williamstown, where she once again paraded as Claire Zachanassian in the never-quite-gets-to-Manhattan musical, The Visit. In recognition of the classy gig, she’ll tribute its tunesmiths John Kander and Fred Ebb, who’ve written for her several times now. ... More >>

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

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. 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 >>

Chelsea Rock

The Mystic Circus Side Show

Metropolitan Room : 11:30 p.m. first Wed. of every month; 11:30 p.m. third Wed. of every month

Flatiron Cabaret

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 >>
