Kings of Leon

Central Park, Rumsey Playfield : 7:00 a.m. July 25

While this Nashville quartet's star has dimmed somewhat in recent years, Kings of Leon remain reliable standard bearers for a particular strain of Southern rock masculinity, a blythe, hard-livin' authenticity both beguiling and curiously remote. Big beards, big hooks, throaty howls, a solid... More >>

The City Reliquary Founder’s Luau

City Reliquary Museum : 6:00 p.m. July 25

The optimal way to celebrate the dust-coated collectors’ items of New York is with a theme that reflects the eccentricity of New Yorkers — in this case, Hawaiian culture. The City Reliquary Founder’s Luau is in its second year or “hana hou” (pidgin for encore), and... More >>

Brooklyn Music


Webster Hall : 10:00 p.m. July 25

Rustie is a Glaswegian DJ whose productions are a sonic embodiment of rave excess, blaring garish melody lines and sub-rattling bass alongside hyperactive rhythms indebted to hip-hop and trap. His first LP Glass Swords was a maximalist business card Rustie hasn't failed to live up to yet, and... More >>

Baby's All Right : 8:00 p.m. July 26

Nikon at Jones Beach Theater : 7:00 p.m. July 27

You probably best know Lady Antebellum from the group's ubiquitous 2009 smash "Need You Now" -- you know, the one identifiable by the piano-pounding intro and the somber, too-much-to-drink regret.

Power Trip+Mammoth Grinder+Razorheads

Saint Vitus : 8:00 p.m. July 28

You've heard it once and you'll hear it again: Power Trip is metal for punk fans, hardcore for metalheads.

WORD : 7:00 p.m. July 29

We don’t get much out of barrels anymore: pickles and monkeys, mostly. But Anya Ulinich’s new graphic novel, Lena Finkle’s Magic Barrel, is packed with dates, of the online (and absurd) variety. Encounters with Disaster Man, the Diamond Psychiatrist, and The Vampire of... More >>

McCarren Park : 6:00 p.m. July 30

Don’t be fooled by the subway ads or the fact that it now joins Legally Blonde in the ranks of movies-turned-to-Broadway musicals. Heathers is a cult hit for a reason: When it first came out in 1988, Daniel Waters’ pitch–black comedy took high school nastiness to unprecedented... More >>
