Betty Who

Music Hall of Williamsburg : 9:00 p.m. April 18

A recent profile of Australian synthpopper Betty Who named her among a number of artists who define pop success in 2014; finding the border between indie and pop then winding streamers around it like it’s a maypole, running their careers less like megaconglomerates and more like scrappy... More >>

Brooklyn Indie Pop

We Are Scientists+PAWS

Bowery Ballroom : 9:00 p.m. April 18

The California-formed, New York–based band We Are Scientists may be the most indie-rock outfit of all of indie rock. Between their catchy lyrics, upbeat melodies, underlying fuzzy sound, and nerdy literary references, the band has been primed for success ever since their second album and... More >>

Lower East Side Alternative

B.B. King

Lehman Center for the Performing Arts : 8:00 p.m. April 19

"I've had some weird troubles along my 88 years," B.B. King told an audience two weeks ago in St. Louis. He had some more that night when he got heckled for telling too many hard-earned stories and doing a sing-along version of "You Are My Sunshine." Would they heckle their grandpa? When he... More >>

Bronx Blues

Lila Downs

Town Hall : 8:00 p.m. April 19

A flamboyant performer who illustrates her music with synchronized art, film, and photography, Oaxaca-born singer-songwriter Lila Downs specializes in dramatic transformations. Marvel as she becomes a deeply emotive mariachi, realist folkie, or shamanic priestess in rapid succession.... More >>

West 40s Singer-Songwriter

Lower East Side Indie Pop

Omar-S

The Glasslands Gallery : 11:30 p.m. April 19

In 2011 Omar-S released his third album, titled It Can Be Done But Only I Can Do It. What a surprise - the Detroit-bred, globally recognized founder of FXHE Records actually makes good on that self-aggrandizement, with a wonky and easily-identifiable mixture of heavy techno and jacking house in... More >>

Brooklyn Dance

Indigo Girls

Tarrytown Music Hall : 8:00 p.m. April 20

Popular during the singer/songwriter resurgence in the late '80s, the Indigo Girls have remained active through several major label stints and are currently releasing albums on their own imprint IG Recordings. Their latest release was 2011's Beauty Queen Sister. For childhood friends Amy Ray... More >>

Greenwich Village Singer-Songwriter

RiFF RaFF

Irving Plaza : 7:00 p.m. April 21

Perhaps Riff Raff's existence, and subsequent ubiquity, in hip-hop was an inevitability. Perhaps it was written in the stars that a goofy white dude from Texas with corn rows, aspirations of superstardom and a penchant for describing normal things in terms of designer clothing would sign with... More >>

East Village Rap, Hip-Hop

Avey Tare's Slasher Flicks

Bowery Ballroom : 9:00 p.m. April 21

When Avey Tare (the stage persona of David Portner) isn’t busy with Animal Collective, he’s flexing his even more intensely experimental muscles with some solo and side projects. It’s been a year since Tare announced the ghoulishly named Avey Tare’s Slasher Flicks, a... More >>

Lower East Side Jazz, Indie Rock, Funk

Fear of Men

Baby's All Right : 7:30 p.m. April 23

Brighton quartet Fear of Men approach records with fervent pointillism. Literally: the artwork for their last record, Early Fragments, was colored using tiny pixels. A band this meticulous usually isn't the kind to write sweeping, crystalline indie pop that's simultaneously saccharine and... More >>

Williamsburg Indie Pop

Factory Floor

Music Hall of Williamsburg : 9:00 p.m. April 23

Factory Floor proves the possibility of revelation through repetition. The critically acclaimed trio of Nik Void, Dominic Butler, and Gabe Gurnsey released their debut LP in 2013 on DFA, but they have been winning converts stateside for their percussive singularity thanks in no small part to...

Brooklyn Industrial, Techno

Miley Cyrus+Icona Pop+Sky Ferreira

Nassau Coliseum : 7:00 p.m. April 24

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. Sure, she's the most talked about pop star of last year, but listening to her Pharrell-assisted album Bangerz reveals... More >>

Allerton Pop

Todd Sickafoose's Tiny Resistors

ShapeShifter Lab : 7:00 p.m. April 24

It’s been a minute since we've heard from the bassist-composer's mid-sized ensemble. But he's been spending his time wisely. Chamber Music America commissioned "Bear Proof," which the Cali-grown Sickafoose describes as a "wordless portrait of booms, busts, prospects & ruin in our golden... More >>

Brooklyn Jazz, Rock

Sol Cat

Rockwood Music Hall : 10:00 p.m. April 24

A fluid, insistent guitar style that's disco at moments and flanged at others, plus a magnetic, over-enunciating frontman? Yes, that's Nashville's Sol Cat, a weirdly thrilling smash-up of first-album Franz Ferdinand and fake-tamed Anthony Kiedis. There's a crowd-pleasing lilt to their rock that... More >>

Lower East Side Psychedelic

Steve Gunn+Kevin Morby+Prince Rupert Drops

Rough Trade NYC : 9:00 p.m. April 25

The impeachable Steve Gunn has been involved with Kurt Vile and The Violators in the past, but more recently, he has recently focused on his own material and solo career. A guitarist in the American Primitivist tradition, Gunn pulls from John Fahey's wide scope of influence without ever feeling... More >>

Brooklyn Singer-Songwriter

Sol Cat

Cameo Gallery : 8:00 p.m. April 26

A fluid, insistent guitar style that's disco at moments and flanged at others, plus a magnetic, over-enunciating frontman?

Williamsburg Psychedelic

Pet Shop Boys

Terminal 5 : 9:00 p.m. April 26

With Electric, the Pet Shop Boys 12th album, Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe made glossy platinum pop perfect for serotonin-craving EDM crowds half their age. Any track from Electric, which hit #3 on the UK Album Charts, could feasibly be played out by DJs playing Ultra's Main Stage, especially... More >>

West 50s New Wave

Cloud Becomes Your Hand

Studio at Webster Hall : 8:00 p.m. April 28

A stacked bill features Brooklyn's own Cloud Becomes Your Hand, who sublimely construct a melodic sprawl of alien soundscapes. On the new Rocks or Cakes, its familial, drug-inducing quirks gloriously rage full on. CBYH color its rainbow-streaked otherworld with psych radiance, weirdo proggy... More >>

East Village Alternative

Nickel Creek+The Secret Sisters

Beacon Theatre : 8:00 p.m. April 29

On Tuesday, at New York's historic Beacon Theatre, two acts who nod to the past will be gracing the stage. Opening act The Secret Sisters are a pair of real life siblings who got their break at an open call held by a major label in Nashville and unlike their debut full of classic covers, their... More >>

West 70s Country

The Both

Bowery Ballroom : 9:00 p.m. April 29

Indie rock icon Ted Leo and esteemed singer/songwriter Aimee Mann have joined forces in a clash of independent music titans with their collaborative project, The Both.

Brooklyn Singer-Songwriter

The Joel Frahm Trio

Smalls Jazz Club : 10:30 p.m. April 18; 10:30 p.m. April 19

A few months ago I came across a trio album the mighty saxophonist cut with drummer Mark Lockett, and was knocked out by the agility of his horn. It’s not news that Frahm’s one of the most impressive improvisers around, but sometimes it’s easy to forget how entertaining his... More >>

Greenwich Village Jazz

'Playing For Jim Hall'

Blue Note : 10:30 p.m. daily until April 20

The master passed in December and his colleagues are still reeling from the loss. A swarm of them step in to populate these three nights with a series of genuflections that salute their hero’s impact. Guitarists Bill Frisell, Julian Lage, Nels Cline, John Abercrombie, and Russell Malone... More >>

Greenwich Village Jazz

The Bad Plus

Jazz Standard : 7:30 p.m. daily from April 22 until April 27

The trio is known for messing with jewels like “Heart of Glass” and “Iron Man” but their new disc is dedicated to a different kind of classic – “The Rite Of Spring.” Genuflecting to Strav’s wise audacity while claiming it as part of an... More >>

Murray Hill Jazz

Stanley Clarke

Blue Note : 8:00 p.m. daily from April 22 until April 27

A seminal architect of jazz fusion with Return to Forever, Stanley Clarke played an instrumental role in bringing the bass out front with his classic solo album School Days.
