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 Music

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 Music

The Golden Gloves tournament

Barclays Center : 7:30 p.m. April 17

The Golden Gloves tournament is still a great way for young athletes to learn a lot more than boxing skills through the competition, which started in 1923. With the help of thousands of volunteers including coaches, trainers, and counselors, young men and women (since the early 1990s) develop... More >>

Brooklyn Sports - Spectator

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 Music

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.

Lower East Side Music

Dust & Grooves

PowerHouse Arena : 6:00 p.m. April 19

It’s another Kickstarter fairy tale gone great. Just a few years ago, vinyl enthusiast Eilon Paz was adrift on a sea of Williamsburg couches, checking out the many record collections Brooklyn had to offer. With a bit of funding, he turned his hobby into a full-time gig, and after trips to... More >>

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 Music

Catch series

Invisible Dog Gallery : 8:00 p.m. April 19

Now in its 11th year, the Catch series, a movable feast of what curators Jeff Larson, Andrew Dinwiddie, and Caleb Hammons call “rough and ready” events, touches down in Cobble Hill. Catch 61 drags up 10 hard-to-pigeonhole acts ranging from veteran dancer David Thomson to versatile... More >>

Brooklyn Arts, Dance, Performance Art

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 Music

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 Music

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 Music

Avey Tare's Slasher Flicks

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

When Avey Tare (the stage persona of David Portner) isn’t busy with Animal Collective, he’s flexing his even more intensely experimental muscles with some solo and side projects. It’s been a year since Tare announced the ghoulishly named Avey Tare’s Slasher Flicks, a... More >>

George Saunders

PowerHouse Arena : 7:00 p.m. April 22

Graduation season is approaching, that time of year when the air is choked with visions of limitless possibility. And whether you’re looking to celebrate the occasion or inoculate against it, you’ll find no better tonic than the book launch of George Saunders’s... More >>

Fear of Men

Baby's All Right : 7:30 p.m. April 23

Brighton quartet Fear of Men approach records with fervent pointillism. Literally: the artwork for their last record, Early Fragments, was colored using tiny pixels. A band this meticulous usually isn't the kind to write sweeping, crystalline indie pop that's simultaneously saccharine and... More >>

Williamsburg Music

Greenwich Village Stories

Symphony Space, Leonard Nimoy Thalia Theater : 7:30 p.m. April 23

With preservationists waging endless battles against developers in Greenwich Village, there’s no better time for Greenwich Village Stories, a new anthology curated by Judith Stonehill for the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation that lovingly records the favorite memories... More >>

West 90s Talks

Factory Floor

Music Hall of Williamsburg : 9:00 p.m. April 23

Factory Floor proves the possibility of revelation through repetition. The critically acclaimed trio of Nik Void, Dominic Butler, and Gabe Gurnsey released their debut LP in 2013 on DFA, but they have been winning converts stateside for their percussive singularity thanks in no small part to...

Brooklyn Music

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.

Allerton Music

Todd Sickafoose's Tiny Resistors

ShapeShifter Lab : 7:00 p.m. April 24

It’s been a minute since we've heard from the bassist-composer's mid-sized ensemble. But he's been spending his time wisely. Chamber Music America commissioned "Bear Proof," which the Cali-grown Sickafoose describes as a "wordless portrait of booms, busts, prospects & ruin in our golden... More >>

Brooklyn Music

Sol Cat

Rockwood Music Hall : 10:00 p.m. April 24

A fluid, insistent guitar style that's disco at moments and flanged at others, plus a magnetic, over-enunciating frontman? Yes, that's Nashville's Sol Cat, a weirdly thrilling smash-up of first-album Franz Ferdinand and fake-tamed Anthony Kiedis. There's a crowd-pleasing lilt to their rock that... More >>

Lower East Side Music

Steve Gunn+Kevin Morby+Prince Rupert Drops

Rough Trade NYC : 9:00 p.m. April 25

The impeachable Steve Gunn has been involved with Kurt Vile and The Violators in the past, but more recently, he has recently focused on his own material and solo career. A guitarist in the American Primitivist tradition, Gunn pulls from John Fahey's wide scope of influence without ever feeling... More >>

Sol Cat

Cameo Gallery : 8:00 p.m. April 26
