Bambara

Palisades : 7:30 p.m. May 22

Simply put, Bambara are not for everyone. But for those who love loud, expansive, noise influenced post-rock that fills your stomach with a vague sense of dread, the three-piece are almost unparalleled. They alternate between spacious, haunting soundscapes and distorted full-band assaults but... More >>

Bushwick Rock

Dan Deacon

Warsaw : 9:00 p.m. May 22

Dan Deacon is a rare individual: he wears the weighty title of composer while also making hit records (where “hit” means earning high praise from major media outlets and loyal fans). He’s sort of a unicorn, managing to win admirers from both the highbrow, New Classical camp as... More >>

Greenpoint Electronica

Aram Bajakian Residency

The Stone : 8:00 p.m. May 22; 8:00 p.m. May 23; 8:00 p.m. May 24

The company Queens-based guitar shredder Aram Bajakian has kept is eye-popping, and like Marc Ribot, he's a virtuosic jack-of-all-trades. Some highlights from his deep résumé: Bajakian wailed for the late and legendary Lou Reed on his final tours, served as go-to ax-man for... More >>

East Village Jazz

Billy Joel

Madison Square Garden : 8:00 p.m. May 28; 8:00 p.m. June 20; 8:00 p.m. July 1; 8:00 p.m. August 20; 8:00 p.m. September 25; 8:00 p.m. October 21; 8:00 p.m. November 19; 8:00 p.m. December 17

Las Vegas was once the go-to spot for legendary musicians looking to settle down for a residency, but it looks like MSG and Billy Joel have found a way to take that concept home to New York. After playing a New Year's Eve show at Barclays, the Bronx-born, Long Island–bred performer, who... More >>

Chelsea Rock

Oh Land

Bowery Ballroom : 9:00 p.m. May 25

Known by her stage name Oh Land, Danish songstress Nanna Øland Fabricius started her performance career as a ballet dancer before shifting gears to a solo recording artist. As Oh Land, she made her mark on the States with indelible indie pop hits like "White Lies" and "Son of a Gun,"... More >>

Lower East Side Rock

Chicano Batman

Brooklyn Bowl : 8:00 p.m. May 24

Recent Jack White tour openers Chicano Batman resemble freaky-deaky prom kings as they play their psychedelic cumbias and Farfisa-driven ballads and prog-pop gems. The East Los Angeles quartet's latest album, Cycles of Existential Rhyme, is warm and deeply funky. Even an eighty-something mom... More >>

Brooklyn Rock

FIDLAR

Bowery Ballroom : 9:00 p.m. May 26

The first headliner for this show is rendered in all-caps because their name is an acronym: Fuck It Dog, Life’s A Risk. They’re skate punks from LA; what else can anyone expect? But the knowingly irreverent moniker belies FIDLAR’s serious, almost scholarly devotion to... More >>

Lower East Side Indie Rock

Kevin Hart

Barclays Center : 10:30 p.m. July 9

Brooklyn Comedy

Geen Ween Does Billy Joel

Brooklyn Bowl : 9:00 p.m. May 28; 8:00 p.m. May 31

After quitting Ween in 2012, Gene Ween reassumed his given name, Aaron Freeman, for a brilliant Rod McKuen covers project and a pretty swell solo album. But he's Gene Ween again, at least for this evening-length tribute to the music of Billy Joel. Accompanied ably by Paul Green and the School... More >>

Brooklyn Rock

Priests

Brooklyn Night Bazaar : 7:00 p.m. May 22

Washington, D.C. four-piece Priests play sparse, intense post-punk brimming with tension and a political edge. Their debut EP Bodies and Control and Money and Power took on Big Issues without getting preachy, and in the process it made many best-of-2014 lists. As good as that record is, it... More >>

Brooklyn Rock

Silencio performs music inspired by David Lynch and Angelo Badalamenti

Le Poisson Rouge : 7:30 p.m. August 14

Greenwich Village Avant-Garde

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 ten-person brass ensemble pins Gypsy melodies against the sort of jazzy r&b horn collages you hear in movies... More >>

FIDLAR

Music Hall of Williamsburg : 9:00 p.m. May 27

The first headliner for this show is rendered in all-caps because their name is an acronym: Fuck It Dog, Life’s A Risk. They’re skate punks from LA; what else can anyone expect? But the knowingly irreverent moniker belies FIDLAR’s serious, almost scholarly devotion to... More >>

Chicano Batman

Subrosa : 8:00 p.m. May 27

The Chris Gethard Show Premiere Party

Rough Trade NYC : 7:00 p.m. May 28

NYC comedy veteran and perennial nervous guy Chris Gethard plays Ilana’s boss on Broad City and recently appeared as a juror in Amy Schumer’s 12 Angry Men episode. His fans know him for something else, though: The long-running Chris Gethard Show, a bizarre, unpredictable, and deeply... More >>

Cake Shop : 8:00 p.m. May 22

Cake Shop — the venerable concert venue/record store/coffee joint that has persevered in the face of the LES's high-brow overhaul — is celebrating its tenth birthday with a slew of shows, and the seventh show of its 10 Days for 10 Years bacchanal promises to be a helluva shredder.... More >>

Reel Big Fish

Best Buy Theater : 7:30 p.m. June 16; 7:30 p.m. June 22

Last December was bittersweet for Reel Big Fish. The ska-punk band gave fans something to celebrate with the surprise Happy Skalidays EP, six tracks of Christmas covers and crudely named originals. On the other hand, the final month of 2014 brought about the departure of drummer Ryland... More >>
