Austin Mahone+The Vamps+Fifth Harmony

Izod Center : 7:00 p.m. August 20

Earlier this month boy band babes One Direction and Aussie up-and-comers 5 Seconds of Summer graced us with their presence for a two night stay at East Rutherford, New Jersey's Met Life Stadium. The teen girls, and all of their cries have been heard. Enter teen heartthrob Austin Mahone and his... More >>

New Jersey Pop

Kevin Gates

The Gramercy Theatre : 7:00 p.m. August 20

At the very beginning of his career, in 2007, Louisiana's Kevin Gates started working with the one and only Lil Boosie, another Louisiana native. Gates and Boosie worked hard in the studio, eventually cutting the track "Get in the Way," which garnered some attention for Gates' burgeoning rap... More >>

Gramercy Park Rap

Rod Stewart & Santana

Nikon at Jones Beach Theater : 7:30 p.m. August 20

This powerhouse odd couple gives new meaning to the word sexagenarian. Santana can still elicit ultrasonic banshee wails on his famously no-frills solid body, eschewing pedal effects for a more quintessentially "smooth" guitar sound, and Stewart can still croak more soulfully than anyone. "Oye... More >>

Allerton Classic Rock

Frontier Ruckus

Rough Trade NYC : 8:00 p.m. August 20

Frontier Ruckus performs with a fresh-faced, thrilled-to-be-there glow, though they’re hardly a rookie act: the Detroit folk group has released three studio albums since 2008, and is preparing to launch a fourth, appropriately titled 4th LP, in November. Effervescent and sweetly sincere,... More >>

Brooklyn Alternative

Robyn + Royksopp

Hudson River Park : 8:00 p.m. August 20

Robyn has been active in the music business for two decades now, but it wasn’t until her 2010 dual album Body Talk that she truly broke through in the U.S. And it’s no wonder — both parts of the album were packed with instant dance classics that paired honest and often sad... More >>

West Village Dance

Ryan Leslie

Bowery Ballroom : 9:00 p.m. August 20

Most people know Ryan Leslie for his work behind the scenes, namely as the producer of Cassie’s “Me & U,” which went on to become possibly the biggest cult R&B hit of the past decade. Since then he’s garnered a cult fanbase of his own, both for his music – often... More >>

Lower East Side R&B

THEESatisfaction

Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) : 5:30 p.m. August 21

If there were a song to play every time the seasons changed, it could probably be "Queens" by Seattle rap duo THEESatisfaction. The tune's positive energy and strength of purpose undeniably evoke change, transition, and internal growth, a vibe further enhanced by the duo's left-field, cosmic... More >>

West 50s Free

Zevious+U Sco+Dama Libra+Epistasis+Period

Saint Vitus : 8:00 p.m. August 21

Myriad iterations of avant-jazz and metal-mongering sickness is represented this evening in a monster bill guaranteeing the motherlode of head-exploding notes. Brooklyn represents in the form of Period—drums sage Mike Pride and Charlie Looker's (of experi-metallers, Psalm Zero)... More >>

Brooklyn Metal

All Them Witches

The Mercury Lounge : 9:30 p.m. August 21

For being the first American group to be signed to the German psychedelic/stoner rock Elektrohasch Records, All Them Witches sound pretty damn American. The Nashville-based group deals in doomy, heavy-hitting reverb and sludgy guitar work colored by bluesy Southern rock elements and the... More >>

Lower East Side Rock

Dead Gaze

South Street Seaport : 6:00 p.m. August 22

Dead Gaze's Cole Furlow's is a one-man noise-pop wrecking crew, pinching off distorted gems that lodge in memory as easily as they defy categorization. In his hands, abrupt punk melodies churn and roil under geysers of feedback and effects, but his effortlessly direct, bitter voice slices... More >>

Financial District Free

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 20; 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 >>

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

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
