Widowspeak

Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) : 6:30 p.m. August 28

Molly Hamilton and Robert Earl Thomas have been bringing nature to life as Widowspeak with their yearning, nostalgia-laced jams for a while now, so it seems fitting that they perform outdoors in MoMA’s sculpture garden tonight. Regular museum admission grants listeners access to the... More >>

A Drinking Game NYC Presents: The Princess Bride

Union Hall : 8:00 p.m. August 28

When asked to play the Princess Bride Drinking Game, one immediately starts guessing (and second- and third-guessing) which goblet has been poisoned with deadly iocane powder. In fact, it’s the latest in a series of classic comedies performed live at Union Hall while the audience drinks... More >>

David Ullmann 8

Barbes : 8:00 p.m. August 28

There's a jaunty vibe to the music on the guitarist's new Corduroy, and it's fetching. It's also a bit of a surprise. It's not often that an octet playing arranged music comes off informal, unfettered by design. Hats off to Ullmann the arranger/composer, who was inspired by TV show themes of... More >>

Park Slope Music

Hal Willner

The Stone : 8:00 p.m. August 28

The left-field producer (Marianne Faithfull, William S. Burroughs, etc.) and tribute impressario (Tim Buckley, the Marquis de Sade, etc.) caps six nights here with a set devoted to comedian Allen Sherman, of "Hello Muddah, Hello Fadduh (A Letter from Camp),” and featuring "many... More >>

East Village Music

Heaven's Jail

Baby's All Right : 8:00 p.m. August 28

Chin-stroking cover art and an NPR co-sign are only two of the things Brooklyn's Heaven's Jail Band has going for it. Possessed of a tremulous voice and a laureate's pen, singer Francesco Ferorelli is at equally at home squaring off with searing electric blues licks and folksy, finger-plucked... More >>

Williamsburg Music

Talib Kweli (DJ Set)

Brooklyn Bowl : 10:30 p.m. August 28

Talib Kweli entered New York's hip-hop scene as one half of the duo Black Star, his partnership with Mos Def/Yasiin Bey. Since then, like Yasiin, Kweli has become known as a conscious rapper; though Kweli embraced that title in the beginning, he has recently balked at the label. One of his... More >>

Brooklyn Music

Electric Zoo

Randall's Island Park : 1:00 p.m. August 29

Can Electric Zoo make a comeback this year? EDM fans will see how the fest holds up a year after having to cancel its final day following several reports of drug overdoses and two deaths. EZoo’s struggles are not abnormal for the narrative of outdoor dance concerts, but the news... More >>

Jeff Bridges & the Abiders

The Paramount : 8:00 p.m. August 29

With over 20 years of a film career under his belt, Jeff Bridges returned to his first love, music, in 2000 with the release of his first album.

Michael Jackson Betwixt/Between

Morbid Anatomy Museum : 8:00 p.m. August 29

“Michael Jackson and Bubbles” (1988), Jeff Koons’s gilded monument to kitsch, sits on a pedastal in the Whitney while Vice reporters sneak into the abandoned Neverland Ranch to document what horrors remain. At this point, the King of Pop’s legacy is rooted more in... More >>

Brooklyn Nightlife

BOYTOY

Baby's All Right : 11:59 p.m. August 29

The wad of ascending killer bands flooding from Brooklyn's DIY punk pantheon truly is the shit. The stellar barrage is relentless, and now BOYTOY has joined the tribe. Like Potty Mouth and Amanda X, grungy co-ed trio BOYTOY--its moniker righteously swiped from the 80's heyday of Madonna's... More >>

Williamsburg Music

Awkwafina

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.

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.

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.

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 >>

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.

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 >>

Ron Carter Big Band

Jazz Standard : 7:30 p.m. daily until August 31

A great bassist is like a great catcher, essential and often overlooked. Whether they know it or not, everyone has heard Ron Carter. It might be with the second great Miles Davis Quintet, or on A Tribe Called Quest's groundbreaking crossover opus, The Low End Theory. Everyone else has heard him... More >>

“Under the Same Sun: Art From Latin America Today"

Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum : 10:00 a.m. every Mon., Tue., Wed., Thu., Sat., Sun. until October 1

When we think of Latin American art, it’s still Frida and Diego who come to mind. But so much has happened to alter the culture since those two and their star-crossed love. Namely, repressive governments, economic highs and lows, a guy named Borges, and a girl named Shakira. This is why... More >>

"Christopher Williams: The Production Line of Happiness"

Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) : 10:30 a.m. every Mon., Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat., Sun. until November 2

What do Ritter Sport chocolate bars have in common with a woman wearing a lemon yellow towel wrapped around her head? When photographed by Christopher Williams, they are both completely absent of personality; 100 percent product. In “The Production Line of Happiness,” the MoMa... More >>
