Aram Bajakian

Grand Victory : 7:00 p.m. April 17

From downtown icon John Zorn's noise-making stable of trailblazing protégés comes Queens' own strings-obliterating guitarist, Aram Bajakian. As part of the ensemble of slayers summoned by the avant-grade legend himself, Bajakian helped premiere Zorn's Masada Book Three: The Book,... More >>

Brooklyn Noise

Black Lips+Natural Child

Webster Hall : 7:00 p.m. April 17

From songs about being forced to sleep with someone, to smoking weed with friends — (and crack, just that one time) — the Black Lips and Natural Child know how to boogie. Even after roughly a decade of serving as two of garage rock's wildest bands, the Atlanta punks and Nashville... More >>

East Village Alternative

Andrea Echeverri

S.O.B.'s : 8:00 p.m. April 17

One of the hemisphere's smartest feminist voices, Aterciopelados co-founder Andrea Echeverri has plumbed the mysteries of love, motherhood, environmentalism, and injustice on three solo albums. While last year's Ruiseñora (Nightingale) doesn't pack the same punch as the Colombian's... More >>

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 >>

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...

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.

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...

East Village Rap, Hip-Hop

Avey Tare's Slasher Flicks

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

The Orb

Highline Ballroom : 8:30 p.m. April 22

The huge ever-growing pulsating brain that rules from the center of the ultraworld returns. Founder Alex Paterson and partner Thomas Fehlmann continue to blend ambient house, techno, dub, and other mind-clouding strains of EDM into colorfully transportive journeys. Expect to hear the... More >>

Chelsea Dance

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

The Used+Taking Back Sunday

Best Buy Theater : 7:00 p.m. April 16

Celebrate Tax Day by hearkening back to a time when you didn't have to pay taxes. That time was 2004, when the emo (though they bristle at the term) titans The Used and Taking Back Sunday were the biggest things in remote proximity to a guitar. Though you might have stopped paying attention,... More >>

'Playing For Jim Hall'

Blue Note : 10:30 p.m. daily from April 18 until April 20

Greenwich Village Jazz

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

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.

Tommy Tune

Cafe Carlyle : 8:45 p.m. every Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat. from April 22 until May 3; 10:45 p.m. every Sat. from April 26 until May 3

These days he’s 75, but he’s still smiling and youthful as he goes about singing, tapping (that’s right, he taps in front of you on the small stage) and telling anecdotes that’ll charm your socks off. The only mystery about the lanky guy is why he no longer directs and... More >>

Billy Joel

Madison Square Garden : 8:00 p.m. April 18; 8:00 p.m. May 9; 8:00 p.m. June 21

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.

Chelsea Rock

Chicha Libre

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

In addition to being a popular alcoholic beverage, "chicha" also signifies the psychedelic style of cumbia fermented in Peru's Amazonian rainforests during the '70s.

Park Slope Rock

Kristeen Young

Bowery Electric : 8:00 p.m. every Wed. until April 30

Predating Amanda Palmer, Kristeen Young’s now logged over a decade of theatrical dervish shows along with a robust, ripe-for-rediscovery catalog of albums full of weaponized piano riffs and lyrics that aren’t TMI so much as too much candor, in the best way. She’s perhaps best... More >>

Noho Alternative

K'naan

Joe's Pub : 11:30 p.m. every Sat. until April 26

Somali-Canadian emcee K’Naan has fashioned quite a name for himself on the World Hip-Hop circuit with his brand of life-affirming music that takes from Mos Def and Nas as much as it does from Bob Marley, at his most uplifting, and Wyclef, at his most carnivalesque. Throw in the hippie... More >>

East Village Hip-Hop

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 >>
