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

Nine Inch Nails+Soundgarden

Nikon at Jones Beach Theater : 7:00 p.m. August 1

Nostalgia is a dish best served loud, and even sans Death Grips' noise-rap maelstrom, this tour's marquee acts are beasts. In the late 1980s and early 1990s Soundgarden helped invent grunge idolatry, and can guarantee a snoutful of sludgy, telescoping guitars. At the same time and for some... More >>

Rebirth Brass Band

Drom : 11:00 p.m. August 1

This eight-piece, three-decades-old metal outfit makes a big brassy noise that blasts asunder the borders separating funk, jazz, gospel, and R&B, all in the name of second-line celebration. Their new Move Your Body is as disciplined and hard-grooving as ever, although I'm still a little... More >>

East Village Brass Band

West 50s Hip-Hop

Jurassic 5

Best Buy Theater : 8:00 p.m. August 2

The six-piece hip-hop outfit takes it back to the concrete streets, their "playground tactics" eternally youthful as the group coasts effortlessly into middle age.

Cuddle Magic+Cassandra Jenkins+Relatives

Baby's All Right : 8:00 p.m. August 3

Panic! At The Disco+Walk the Moon+Magic Man

Madison Square Garden : 7:30 p.m. August 5

Like the theater-kid little cousin to pop-punkers Fall Out Boy, Panic! at the Disco made waves in the mid-aughts' emo-punk scene with theatrics and catchy hits like "I Write Sins Not Tragedies." Over the years, the group has matured their sound, gone through a number of lineup changes and... More >>

Chelsea Alternative

Lil Debbie

Webster Hall : 8:00 p.m. August 5

Like a pan of burnt brownies tossed in the trash, gone are the days of Kreayshawn collaborations and White Girl Mob drama, clearing the smoke for the Bay Area baker Lil Debbie to pursue her solo career.

East Village House

FKA Twigs

Webster Hall : 8:00 p.m. August 6

Few artists are more worthy of the acclaim and buzz they receive than FKA Twigs.

East Village R&B

'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

Patti Lupone

54 Below : 7:00 p.m. July 31; 8:00 p.m. August 1; 8:00 p.m. August 2

West 50s Cabaret

KT Sullivan & Jeff Harnar

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

Henry Threadgill's Zooid

Village Vanguard : 8:30 p.m. daily until August 3

If you hear some heavy percolation in the West Village this week, fear not - it will be the esteemed composer's strings-brass-rhythm-reeds outfit riding the idiosyncrasies of his oddly fetching groove.

West Village Jazz

One Direction+5 Seconds of Summer

MetLife Stadium : 7:00 p.m. August 4; 7:00 p.m. August 5

One Direction aren’t quite the Beatles, nor are they anything like *NSYNC. In fact, it’s hard to categorize them in the Great Boy Band Sphere at all, but that doesn’t make them any less lovable. Over the course of the reality show stint that brought them together in the first... More >>

New Jersey Pop

The Offspring+Bad Religion+Pennywise+The Vandals

Terminal 5 : 7:30 p.m. August 4; 7:30 p.m. August 5

If you spent middle-school carving "EPITAPH4EVA" into desks or arms, this tour may be in your wheelhouse.
