Lauryn Hill

Brooklyn Bowl : 7:00 p.m. July 28

Ms. Lauryn Hill is more than just a singer, she is the very definition of an artist. Her lyrics are gorgeously composed and are even more powerful when delivered in her lovely voice. Clearly, a talent like hers can’t be contained by just one classic album. She claims two releases —... More >>

Power Trip+Mammoth Grinder+Razorheads

Saint Vitus : 8:00 p.m. July 28

You've heard it once and you'll hear it again: Power Trip is metal for punk fans, hardcore for metalheads.

Brooklyn Hardcore

Keyshia Cole

Irving Plaza : 7:00 p.m. July 29

Noura Mint Seymali

Joe's Pub : 9:30 p.m. July 29

The Mauritanian singer has a fine new album, Tzenni, and deploys her impossible-to-ignore voice to explore Moorish poetic themes.

East Village World

Miley Cyrus+Lily Allen

Nassau Coliseum : 7:00 p.m. August 1

Miley Cyrus is bringing her tongue-waggling, twerking and bear-centric show to town, and despite the backlash, it's almost guaranteed to be an impeccable turn up function.

Allerton Pop

Old Crow Medicine Show

Central Park, Rumsey Playfield : 5:30 p.m. August 4

Fifteen years and eight albums into their career, Tennessee string band Old Crow Medicine Show still play with the wide-eyed charisma of a pack of buskers. Like any good roots outfit, they’re best experienced live. Old Crow’s seven members look and act like a party onstage--a party... More >>

KT Sullivan & Jeff Harnar

The Laurie Beechman Theatre : 6:00 p.m. August 6; 6:00 p.m. August 13

They call it “Our Time” after Stephen Sondheim’s Merrily We Roll Along anthem. They’re singing Sondheim, you see. But rather than saying to yourself, “Not him again,” take a positive attitude. Think that here are two of cabaret’s most sophisticated,... More >>

West 40s Broadway

'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 >>

Chicha Libre

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

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 >>

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?

The debonair New Orleans pianist-songwriter-producer reprises his bittersweet post-Katrina brunch stint here with another series of Sunday noontime performances.

East Village R&B

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 >>
