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. 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

Usher

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...

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

CocoRosie

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

Shannon & the Clams

Union Pool : 9:00 p.m. September 9

Summer is almost over but Bay Area boobies Shannon and the Clams are still on their never-ending hunk hunt, winking their way to the Big Creepy Apple for three nights of terrorizing greasy retro rock. Channeling the Shangri-Las and surfy psych rock, the crusty Clams whoop and ooga booga in the... More >>

Brooklyn Music

'John Zorn's Masada - Angels'

Village Vanguard : 8:30 p.m. daily from September 2 until September 7

If saxophonist and composer John Zorn is the kabbalistic sage of the downtown scene, his mystical masterpiece, Masada, the foundation of his Radical Jewish Culture aesthetic, is its Zohar. This week-long festival presents Zorn alongside 11 ensembles in the orbit of his Tzadik label. Groups led... More >>

West Village Music

DANCENOW Joe's Pub Festival

Joe's Pub : 7:00 p.m. daily from September 3 until September 6

Doris Humphrey, one of the mothers of modern dance, famously declared that all dances are too long. She never saw the DANCENOW Festival, now in its 19th year, which features 10 troupes nightly, performing choice works on a nightclub stage slightly larger than your bathroom. Many of the acts are...

“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 >>
