Skirball Center for the Performing Arts : 6:00 p.m. August 30

When “My Vag” dropped in 2012, Awkwafina (aka Nora Lum) became a YouTube sensation. Tiny and bespectacled, the Forest Hills rapper has a brashness and ego to match the big guys, with subject matter that involves the superiority of vaginas (“50 times better than a... More >>

Soho Music

Garfunkel & Oates

Irving Plaza : 7:00 p.m. August 30

L..A. funnywomen Kate Micucci and Riki Lindhome have been performing as Garfunkel and Oates (“two famous rock ’n’ roll second bananas”) for seven years now. Like a female Flight of the Conchords with a slightly cleaned-up Sarah Silverman sense of humor, they won the... More >>

East Village Music

Zac Brown Band

Nikon at Jones Beach Theater : 7:00 p.m. August 30

Zac Brown helms his band -- which has grown since its inception in 2002 to an eight-piece -- with his rich, reflective baritone and un-egotistical approach to performance. The dream of the jam band is still alive in ZBB, despite three platinum records and eleven #1 singles, as well as the... More >>

Allerton Music

Pat Benatar & Neil Giraldo

The Paramount : 8:00 p.m. August 30

Will "Love Is a Battlefield" ever get old? Never. Impossible. And Pat Benatar will never stop being impossibly badass. Which is why the singer's 35th anniversary tour with her legendary guitarist Neil Giraldo is a can't-miss opportunity to revel in every memorable hit from "Heartbreaker" and... More >>

Long Island Music

Mount Kimbie (DJ Set)

The Wick : 11:00 p.m. August 30

English electronic duo, Mount Kimbie create reflective post-dubstep sounds utilizing dreamy compositions, mangled r&b samples and field recordings. After signing to the seminal British label Warp, the band released their second album Cold Spring Fault Less Youth, featuring contributions from... More >>

Brooklyn Music

Rub-a-Grub Brooklyn

Do or Dine : 5:00 p.m. August 31

Bed-Stuy gem Do or Dine boasts a menu with items like “Miso-Corny” and “Pho’rk Chop.” Flavors are played with as much as words: expreso aioli, Dr. Pepper–glazed frog legs, foie gras in a doughnut (“a Dough or Dine collaboration”). It is in this... More >>

Bedford Stuyvesant Food and Drink

U.S. Open

Flushing Meadows Corona Park : 11:00 a.m. September 1

The U.S. Open claims the largest attendance of any of the tennis world’s majors, last year drawing more than 713,000 in 26 sessions. It became the first Grand Slam tournament to award equal prize money to men and women in 1973, a past inequality that seems absurd, now that superstars like... More >>

Fool’s Gold

50 Kent : 2:00 p.m. September 1

If you can’t make it out of town for Labor Day, local hip-hop/electronic label Fool’s Gold can always be counted on to make sure you have a wicked end to your three-day weekend. This year, its Day Off party has expanded beyond BK, and is now hosting a five-city, ticketed mini tour... More >>

Williamsburg Music

Champagne Supernovas

Strand Book Store : 7:00 p.m. September 2

How long do fashion trends take to resurface? Some say about 20 years (think of how cool ’70s bell-bottoms were in the ’90s). Others are more specific: “When you’re too old to wear them again.” The ’90s have been inching back sartorially, with grungy flannel,... More >>

Union Square Literary Events

Eric Harland

Highline Ballroom : 8:00 p.m. September 2

At 36, prolific drummer Eric Harland has appeared as a sideman on nearly 200 recordings, bridging the rhythmic gap between Wayne Shorter, Esperanza Spalding, John Mayer, and Mariah Carey. He finally released Vipassana, his sophomore album as a leader. The eponymous style of meditation that... More >>

Chelsea Music

John Zorn

Village Vanguard : 8:30 p.m. September 2

John Zorn was beaming at the Newport Jazz Festival in August. The far-flung ensembles of his Masada family were together for a two and a half hour mix ’n’ match confab that stretched from chamber music gentility to red-zone dissonance that he proudly declared “sick”... More >>

West Village Music

Yankees–Red Sox

Yankee Stadium : 7:00 p.m. September 3

In recent years, two things have basically been wrong with the Yankees–Red Sox rivalry, which has thrived on mutual hate since Boston sold Babe Ruth to New York, in 1919. First, Boston wins too much. Second, it’s really hard to hate the Red Sox and their fans when they do things... More >>

The Whigs

Rough Trade NYC : 9:00 p.m. September 3

With a gift for infectious melodies and solid rock'n'roll sensibility, it's hard not to like The Whigs, at least a little bit—which probably explains their frequent appearances on late night TV. Formed in Athens, Georgia in the early aughts, the trio has five albums of palatable,... More >>

Brooklyn Music

Ches Smith Trio

Greenwich House Music School : 8:00 p.m. September 4

A percussionist who creates music with the architectural sense of a designer, Smith is usually in the process of fulfilling on elaborate notions. History implies that this trio with violinist Mat Maneri and keyboardist Craig Taborn would be expert at aggressive textural fantasias with more than... More >>

West Village Music

Michael Blake Group

Smalls Jazz Club : 9:30 p.m. September 4

Warmth and invention spills from the saxophonist’s horn on a regular basis. That makes him part of a lineage that begins with tenor maestro Lester Young, to whom Blake’s new Tiddy Boom is dedicated. It’s all about mucho lyricism, oodles of frolic, and the kind of swing you... More >>

Greenwich Village Music


Rockefeller Center : 6:00 a.m. September 5

In anticipation of the R&B king's forthcoming studio album, Usher recently released two new singles: "She Came to Give It to You," featuring Nicki Minaj, which the pair performed at the MTV VMAs while engaging in a bit of bass- and ass-slapping, as well as the sultry, bump-and-grind,... More >>

East 40s Music

Social Distortion+The Whigs+Jonny Two Bags

The Paramount : 8:00 p.m. September 5

Mike Ness might just be the most punk rock out of all his peers. As the only remaining original member of punk rockers and rockabilly heros Social Distortion, Ness has clocked more than three decades as frontman of the group, refusing to back down after years of loss, abuse, law troubles and... More >>

Long Island Music

Kid 'n' Play+Full Force

B.B. King Blues Club & Grill : 7:30 p.m. September 6

The halcyon pop-rap of Kid 'n' Play -- that's Christopher Reid and Christopher Martin to their mothers, and maybe yours, too -- hearkens back to a gentler, more innocent period in hip-hop history, when balling meant macking on girls, getting fly, or one-upping your homies with boasts the whole... More >>

West 40s Music

Fucked Up+Speedy Ortiz

Irving Plaza : 8:00 p.m. September 6

About as audacious as their name, Fucked Up maintain media appearances with the occasional outspoken fit when they're not busy creating lyrically dense songs propelled by lead singer Damian Abraham's throaty scream and metronomic but metallic guitar chugs. While some “experimental”... More >>

East Village Music

Sir Richard Bishop+Tashi Dorji

Issue Project Room : 8:00 p.m. September 6

Bishop released his first solo-guitar album on John Fahey's Revenant label in 1998, and the '60s legacy of experimental traditionalists like Fahey, Robbie Basho, and Peter Walker flows through his veins. He's also a wanton internationalist, as befits a former Sun City Girl and co-founder of the... More >>

Brooklyn Music

Evian Christ+Sophie+Nguzunguzu

88 Palace : 11:00 p.m. September 6

If you're looking for some peaceful beats after a weekend of maximalism at Electric Zoo, stay away from Dark Disco. The three headliners here operate in distinct fields, but a lack of subtlety is one of their shared characteristics. Evian Christ graduated from uploading Youtube videos in 2011... More >>

East Village Music


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

Sisters Bianca and Sierra Casady -- aka CocoRosie -- mesh folky guitar, piano and harp with electronic instruments, and even tease music out of children’s toys. Their basic premise of “freak folk” has been in place since the 2004 debut La maison de mon rêve, but despite... More >>

East Village Music

Die Antwoord

Irving Plaza : 7:00 p.m. September 8

Die Antwoord brought zef to the United States, a South African counterculture that simultaneously embraces and rejects luxury. If that doesn't make any sense to you, then perhaps seeing a live performance by Die Antwoord — comprised of emcees Ninja and Yo-Landi Vi$$er, and DJ Hi-Tek... More >>

East Village Music

Bombay Rickey

Joe's Pub : 9:30 p.m. September 8

This Brooklyn quintet plays a delightful amalgam of surf rock, exotica, mambo, Bollywood, and light opera – which is to say kitsch of the highest quality. The focus is on Kamala Sankaram, a coloratura soprano who evokes Yma Sumac in "Taki Rari," Asha Bhosle in Bollywood megahit "Dum Maro... More >>

Die Antwoord

Terminal 5 : 8:00 p.m. September 9
