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...

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.

Factory Floor

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

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 >>

West Village 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

Hauschka

Pet Shop Boys

Terminal 5 : 9:00 p.m. April 26

With Electric, the Pet Shop Boys 12th album, Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe made glossy platinum pop perfect for serotonin-craving EDM crowds half their age.
