Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) : 6:30 p.m. August 28

Molly Hamilton and Robert Earl Thomas have been bringing nature to life as Widowspeak with their yearning, nostalgia-laced jams for a while now, so it seems fitting that they perform outdoors in MoMA’s sculpture garden tonight. Regular museum admission grants listeners access to the... More >>

West 50s Alternative

David Ullmann 8

Barbes : 8:00 p.m. August 28

There's a jaunty vibe to the music on the guitarist's new Corduroy, and it's fetching. It's also a bit of a surprise. It's not often that an octet playing arranged music comes off informal, unfettered by design. Hats off to Ullmann the arranger/composer, who was inspired by TV show themes of... More >>

Park Slope Jazz

Hal Willner

The Stone : 8:00 p.m. August 28

The left-field producer (Marianne Faithfull, William S. Burroughs, etc.) and tribute impressario (Tim Buckley, the Marquis de Sade, etc.) caps six nights here with a set devoted to comedian Allen Sherman, of "Hello Muddah, Hello Fadduh (A Letter from Camp),” and featuring "many... More >>

East Village Cabaret

Heaven's Jail

Baby's All Right : 8:00 p.m. August 28

Chin-stroking cover art and an NPR co-sign are only two of the things Brooklyn's Heaven's Jail Band has going for it. Possessed of a tremulous voice and a laureate's pen, singer Francesco Ferorelli is at equally at home squaring off with searing electric blues licks and folksy, finger-plucked... More >>

Williamsburg Rock

Talib Kweli (DJ Set)

Brooklyn Bowl : 10:30 p.m. August 28

Talib Kweli entered New York's hip-hop scene as one half of the duo Black Star, his partnership with Mos Def/Yasiin Bey. Since then, like Yasiin, Kweli has become known as a conscious rapper; though Kweli embraced that title in the beginning, he has recently balked at the label. One of his... More >>

Brooklyn Dance

Electric Zoo

Randall's Island Park : 1:00 p.m. August 29

Can Electric Zoo make a comeback this year? EDM fans will see how the fest holds up a year after having to cancel its final day following several reports of drug overdoses and two deaths. EZoo’s struggles are not abnormal for the narrative of outdoor dance concerts, but the news... More >>

Long Island Rock


Baby's All Right : 11:59 p.m. August 29

The wad of ascending killer bands flooding from Brooklyn's DIY punk pantheon truly is the shit. The stellar barrage is relentless, and now BOYTOY has joined the tribe.

Williamsburg Alternative

Garfunkel & Oates

Irving Plaza : 7:00 p.m. August 30

L..A. funnywomen Kate Micucci and Riki Lindhome have been performing as Garfunkel and Oates (“two famous rock ’n’ roll second bananas”) for seven years now. Like a female Flight of the Conchords with a slightly cleaned-up Sarah Silverman sense of humor, they won the... More >>

East Village Comedy

Zac Brown Band

Nikon at Jones Beach Theater : 7:00 p.m. August 30

Zac Brown helms his band -- which has grown since its inception in 2002 to an eight-piece -- with his rich, reflective baritone and un-egotistical approach to performance. The dream of the jam band is still alive in ZBB, despite three platinum records and eleven #1 singles, as well as the... More >>

Allerton Country

Pat Benatar & Neil Giraldo

The Paramount : 8:00 p.m. August 30

Will "Love Is a Battlefield" ever get old? Never. Impossible. And Pat Benatar will never stop being impossibly badass.

Chelsea Jazz

Ron Carter Big Band

Jazz Standard : 7:30 p.m. daily until August 31

A great bassist is like a great catcher, essential and often overlooked. Whether they know it or not, everyone has heard Ron Carter. It might be with the second great Miles Davis Quintet, or on A Tribe Called Quest's groundbreaking crossover opus, The Low End Theory. Everyone else has heard him... More >>

Murray Hill Jazz

Jon Irabagon Festival

Downstairs at Cornelia Street Café : 8:30 p.m. daily until August 30

Agility is the forte of this increasingly intriguing saxophonist - one of the wiliest in town. Irabagon has no prob opening a can whoop ass during the middle of an muscular extrapolation, but he also appreciates the value of kiss on the cheek. The best part is that he's convincing with both.... More >>

West Village Jazz

Ed Palermo Big Band

Iridium : 10:00 p.m. August 29; 10:00 p.m. August 30

The saxophonist-bandleader combines perfect pop with eccentric wizardry for the next two nights – think "Hello It's Me" into "Black Napkins" – when he leads his dynamic 18-piece big band through "Zodd Zundgren," a promisingly demented mash-up of music by Todd Rundgren and Palermo's... 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.

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.

'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 >>
