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.

Mount Kimbie (DJ Set)

The Wick : 11:00 p.m. August 30

Chelsea Jazz

The Whigs

Rough Trade NYC : 9:00 p.m. September 3

With a gift for infectious melodies and solid rock'n'roll sensibility, it's hard not to like The Whigs, at least a little bit—which probably explains their frequent appearances on late night TV. Formed in Athens, Georgia in the early aughts, the trio has five albums of palatable,... More >>

Brooklyn Rock

Ches Smith Trio

Greenwich House Music School : 8:00 p.m. September 4

A percussionist who creates music with the architectural sense of a designer, Smith is usually in the process of fulfilling on elaborate notions. History implies that this trio with violinist Mat Maneri and keyboardist Craig Taborn would be expert at aggressive textural fantasias with more than... More >>

West Village Jazz

Michael Blake Group

Smalls Jazz Club : 9:30 p.m. September 4

Warmth and invention spills from the saxophonist’s horn on a regular basis. That makes him part of a lineage that begins with tenor maestro Lester Young, to whom Blake’s new Tiddy Boom is dedicated. It’s all about mucho lyricism, oodles of frolic, and the kind of swing you... More >>

Greenwich Village Jazz


Rockefeller Center : 6:00 a.m. September 5

In anticipation of the R&B king's forthcoming studio album, Usher recently released two new singles: "She Came to Give It to You," featuring Nicki Minaj, which the pair performed at the MTV VMAs while engaging in a bit of bass- and ass-slapping, as well as the sultry, bump-and-grind,... More >>

East 40s R&B

Social Distortion+The Whigs+Jonny Two Bags

The Paramount : 8:00 p.m. September 5

Mike Ness might just be the most punk rock out of all his peers. As the only remaining original member of punk rockers and rockabilly heros Social Distortion, Ness has clocked more than three decades as frontman of the group, refusing to back down after years of loss, abuse, law troubles and...

Long Island Punk

Kid 'n' Play+Full Force

B.B. King Blues Club & Grill : 7:30 p.m. September 6

The halcyon pop-rap of Kid 'n' Play -- that's Christopher Reid and Christopher Martin to their mothers, and maybe yours, too -- hearkens back to a gentler, more innocent period in hip-hop history, when balling meant macking on girls, getting fly, or one-upping your homies with boasts the whole... More >>

West 40s Hip-Hop

Fucked Up+Speedy Ortiz

Irving Plaza : 8:00 p.m. September 6

About as audacious as their name, Fucked Up maintain media appearances with the occasional outspoken fit when they're not busy creating lyrically dense songs propelled by lead singer Damian Abraham's throaty scream and metronomic but metallic guitar chugs. While some “experimental”... More >>

East Village Alternative

Sir Richard Bishop+Tashi Dorji

Issue Project Room : 8:00 p.m. September 6

Bishop released his first solo-guitar album on John Fahey's Revenant label in 1998, and the '60s legacy of experimental traditionalists like Fahey, Robbie Basho, and Peter Walker flows through his veins. He's also a wanton internationalist, as befits a former Sun City Girl and co-founder of the... More >>

Brooklyn Experimental

Evian Christ+Sophie+Nguzunguzu

88 Palace : 11:00 p.m. September 6

If you're looking for some peaceful beats after a weekend of maximalism at Electric Zoo, stay away from Dark Disco. The three headliners here operate in distinct fields, but a lack of subtlety is one of their shared characteristics. Evian Christ graduated from uploading Youtube videos in 2011... More >>

East Village Dance


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

Sisters Bianca and Sierra Casady -- aka CocoRosie -- mesh folky guitar, piano and harp with electronic instruments, and even tease music out of children’s toys. Their basic premise of “freak folk” has been in place since the 2004 debut La maison de mon rêve, but despite... More >>

East Village Pop

Die Antwoord

Irving Plaza : 7:00 p.m. September 8

Die Antwoord brought zef to the United States, a South African counterculture that simultaneously embraces and rejects luxury. If that doesn't make any sense to you, then perhaps seeing a live performance by Die Antwoord — comprised of emcees Ninja and Yo-Landi Vi$$er, and DJ Hi-Tek... More >>

East Village Alternative

Bombay Rickey

Joe's Pub : 9:30 p.m. September 8

This Brooklyn quintet plays a delightful amalgam of surf rock, exotica, mambo, Bollywood, and light opera – which is to say kitsch of the highest quality. The focus is on Kamala Sankaram, a coloratura soprano who evokes Yma Sumac in "Taki Rari," Asha Bhosle in Bollywood megahit "Dum Maro... More >>

East Village Alternative

Die Antwoord

Terminal 5 : 8:00 p.m. September 9

Shannon & the Clams

Union Pool : 9:00 p.m. September 9

Summer is almost over but Bay Area boobies Shannon and the Clams are still on their never-ending hunk hunt, winking their way to the Big Creepy Apple for three nights of terrorizing greasy retro rock. Channeling the Shangri-Las and surfy psych rock, the crusty Clams whoop and ooga booga in the... More >>

Brooklyn Alternative

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 : 8:00 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 >>

West 50s Big Band

'John Zorn's Masada - Angels'

Village Vanguard : 8:30 p.m. daily from September 2 until September 7

If saxophonist and composer John Zorn is the kabbalistic sage of the downtown scene, his mystical masterpiece, Masada, the foundation of his Radical Jewish Culture aesthetic, is its Zohar. This week-long festival presents Zorn alongside 11 ensembles in the orbit of his Tzadik label. Groups led... More >>
