Blake Mills

Le Poisson Rouge : 7:30 p.m. October 1

The White Dude with a Guitar thing has been going on for a while — like, since the instrument was invented and people had emotions they wanted to sing about. But in recent years, locking yourself up in a room and writing songs about heartbreak has become a bit of a cliche. Who's to blame?... More >>

Greenwich Village Music


Warsaw : 8:00 p.m. October 1

London’s latest foray into modern soul comes cloaked in the accidental secrecy of Josh Lloyd-Watson and Tom McFarland, who went simply by “J” and “T” when the pair signed to XL Recordings sans press photos or much information. But the music spoke for itself —... More >>

Greenpoint Music

Tove Lo

Webster Hall : 9:00 p.m. October 1

Swedish singer-songwriter, Tove Lo is entering legit pop star territory with her chart-storming “Habits." It's a cathartic tale of nursing a broken heart by binging, going to sex clubs and throwing up in the tub with an infectiously anthemic power pop chorus. Though her songs are in the... More >>

East Village Music

33 1/3 Tenth Anniversary

PowerHouse Arena : 7:00 p.m. October 2

For a decade now, 33 1/3 has been taking music lovers deep — very, very deep — into their favorite albums through the publishing imprint’s series, in which writers explore individual records over the course of entire books. (You don’t know obsessive until you’ve... More >>

Power Play: An Evening of Steampunk

New York Transit Museum : 7:00 p.m. October 2

If you’ve never been to the New York Transit Museum, located underground in a historic subway station in downtown Brooklyn, you’re cheating yourself. This after-hours guided tour of hand-picked, one-of-a-kind pieces from its collection is your chance to see the museum from a... More >>

Brooklyn Heights Nightlife


Trans-Pecos : 8:00 p.m. October 2

Not only do experi-metallers Charlie Looker (of Zs, Extra Life, Seaven Teares and Period) and Andrew Hock (formerly of Castavet) inflict their drum machine-bashing, melodic avant-metal torture all over the Brooklyn DIY underground pantheon as Psalm Zero, the terrorizing twosome have managed to...

Ridgewood Music

EstroGenius Festival

Stage Left Studio : 7:30 p.m. October 3

From Elizabethan constrictions that barred women (most notably Gwyneth Paltrow in Shakespeare in Love) from setting foot on a stage, let alone writing for one, to the sustained existence of Neil LaBute: In theater, as in life, women are too often dealt the shit parts. Step in the EstroGenius... More >>

Garment District Theater, Festivals


Saint Vitus : 8:00 p.m. October 3

There's always been something scruffy about this on-again, off-again NYC crew. Ostensibly punk, Cro-Mags songs plow ahead with a not-inconsiderable weight - but these guys embrace ponderousness to the extent that they're not hardcore, and three-cord riffage arrives outfitted with enough butt...

Brooklyn Music

Avey Tare's Slasher Flicks

Webster Hall : 6:00 p.m. October 4

"Animal Collective on Halloween" is a reductive way of summarizing the vibe of Avey Tare's new band with members of Ponytail and Dirty Projectors. Debut Welcome to the Slasher House leans on a decidedly more bumptious sense of rhythm, laying on greasepaint murk, dinky pop, and cheap sound... More >>

East Village Music

La Roux

Terminal 5 : 8:00 p.m. October 4

In 2009, La Roux got stuck in our heads with hooks like "Going in for the kill, doing it for the thrill," and "this time baby, I'll be bulletproof." After some time under the radar, the British singer/producer duo hit us with a new album this past July, Trouble in Paradise, reminding us of all... More >>

West 50s Music

Lykke Li

Radio City Music Hall : 8:00 p.m. October 4

Lykke Li has had a busy fall: not only were her vocals featured on U2's surprise new album, but the Swedish songstress is also making a stop on her current tour at New York City's historic Radio City Music Hall. The show comes in support of her May-released third album, I Never Learn, her most... More >>

West 40s Music

Big Freedia+Le Chev (DJ Set)+Friendly Ghost

The Glasslands Gallery : 11:30 p.m. October 4

We should thank Big Freedia for bringing the very spirited New Orleans style of hip-hop — bounce music — to the masses. Every Big Freedia show is an energized, raucous party with a lot of twerking. In fact, you probably won't catch one of his shows without audience members twerking... More >>

Brooklyn Music

Taxidermy Gone Rogue

The Bell House : 3:00 p.m. October 5

The rogue taxidermy scene, especially in Brooklyn, is rapidly expanding to include all manner of hybrid creatures, tasteful or not so much, but always interesting. Behold Lisa Black’s bionic fawn, part deer, part Terminator; Divya Anantharaman’s Pikachu mouse or wearable sparrow... More >>

Brooklyn Nightlife

Grace Kelly

Iridium : 7:00 p.m. October 5

Korean-American saxophonist, composer, and vocalist Grace Kelly celebrates the release of Working for the Dreamers, an impeccably produced smooth jazz EP that sails along with enough of a tailwind to avoid getting grounded in an elevator. Sade with a touch of mentor Lee Konitz, and boasting a... More >>

West 50s Music

The Blood Brothers

Warsaw : 7:00 p.m. October 5

You patiently waited through all of the cheesy 10 year anniversary tours and band reunions of the last year (Brand New, Senses Fail, really?), hoping for something a bit less whiny. You cursed at your computer when you saw the Blood Brothers announced they would be reuniting for the annual FYF... More >>

Greenpoint Music

Limp Bizkit+Machine Gun Kelly

The Paramount : 7:00 p.m. October 6

If you stopped to read this blurb on why you should attend a Limp Bizkit concert, that's probably a sign that you should attend a Limp Bizkit concert. You were 16 once. You probably aren't originally from New York, and when you hear the words "Fred Durst" you think about that backwards baseball... More >>

Long Island Music

Comics at Columbia: Past, Present, Future

Butler Library at Columbia University : 6:00 p.m. October 7

Columbia’s Rare Book and Manuscript Library has recently been building a Scrooge McDuck–like vault of comics history, acquiring the archives of such creators as Chris Claremont (Uncanny X-Men), Wendy and Richard Pini (Elfquest), and Al Jaffee (Mad). Now Comics at Columbia: Past,... More >>

Harlem Arts, Literary Events

Charli XCX

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

Pop’s latest grunge-glam princess, Charli XCX is bringing her spunky sashay to Manhattan tonight. Topping a stacked bill that includes more girl power pop — Elliphant and Femme — Charli will take the stage and, hopefully, reveal some of what she’s been working on for her... More >>

East Village Music

Gardens & Villa

Bowery Ballroom : 8:00 p.m. October 7

With a band name like Gardens & Villa, one would expect a continental sound and a certain level of refinement as the bare minimum. Thankfully the Santa Barbara five-piece has achieved all this and more since 2011 when Secretly Canadian released their self-titled synth-driven pop debut Dunes.... More >>

Lower East Side Music

Perfume Genius

Music Hall of Williamsburg : 9:00 p.m. October 7

As a sort of queer icon for the underground set (think the opposite of Lady Gaga), Perfume Genius, otherwise known as Seattle-based artist Mike Hadreas, has been turning heads with his excellent just-released album, Too Bright. The album builds upon Perfume Genius' quiet genius of 2012's Put... More >>

Brooklyn Music

Limp Bizkit+Machine Gun Kelly

Best Buy Theater : 8:00 p.m. October 8

If you stopped to read this blurb on why you should attend a Limp Bizkit concert, that's probably a sign that you should attend a Limp Bizkit concert. You were 16 once. You probably aren't originally from New York, and when you hear the words "Fred Durst" you think about that backwards baseball... More >>

The Fugitive Kind

Film Forum : 9:30 p.m. October 1

With John Lahr’s new biography, Tennessee Williams: Mad Pilgrimage of the Flesh, hitting bookshelves in September, Film Forum has taken the opportunity to program a series centered on film adaptations of the groundbreaking playwright’s work. Selections range from the canonical (Elia... More >>

Greenwich Village Film - Repertory and Special Screenings

Elastic City Participatory Walks Festival

Elastic City Walks Festival : 12:00 p.m. every Mon., Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat., Sun. until October 7

Now, this is something different. The folks at Elastic City want to involve the public — that’s you — in outdoor art, interacting not only with nature (like scooping dirt in Prospect Park) but sometimes involving passersby (throwing an imaginary ball around Greeley Square).... More >>

“Somebody Come and Play”: 45 Years of Sesame Street

New York Public Library for the Performing Arts : 12:00 p.m. every Mon., Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat., Sun. until January 31

More than any other cultural or political figure of the past half-century, Big Bird can be considered the great uniter. No other teacher has influenced a wider swath of children — spreading the Sesame sermon far and wide, regardless of nationality, ethnicity, race, or economic bracket.... More >>

A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder

Walter Kerr Theatre : 7:00 p.m. every Tue., Thu.; 2:00 p.m. every Wed., Sat.; 8:00 p.m. every Wed., Fri., Sat.; 3:00 p.m. every Sun.

Any chance to see Tony–winner Jefferson Mays (I Am My Own Wife, Gore Vidal’s The Best Man) on the boards is not to be missed, but his role in A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder should be a treat eight times over. In this story, gentleman Monty (played by Bryce Pinkham) has... More >>
