Vance Joy @ Beacon Theatre – The popular Australian singer-songwriter returns to North America in 2016 on the Fire and the Flood tour. You can catch him tonight at Beacon Theatre, performing with special guests Blind Pilot and Jamie Lawson.
Lucius @ MHOW – It’s a gig you won’t want to miss, because these five indie rockers are known for their charismatic live performances. They’ll be playing Music Hall of Williamsburg tomorrow with Portland’s Pure Bathing Culture.
Parlour Tricks @ Webster Hall – Parlour Tricks is one of those NYC bands we just can’t get enough of with. Get to the Marlin room early to see them opening up for Great Caesar.
The Budos Band @ Brooklyn Bowl – This 9-piece instrumental group cooks up what they describe as an “afro-soul” mix that has a little bit of everything. Fans are in for a psychedelic night with the Budos Band this Friday at Brooklyn Bowl.
Sinkane @ Baby’s All Right – Sinkane’s unique blend of Sudanese pop, krautrock, reggae, and funk has made him one to watch, so we’re excited to hear his DJ residencies at Baby’s this month. Best of all: Friday’s show is free of charge.
Weezer @ Rough Trade – First, go to Rough Trade by 11am (get there early, there will be a line) and buy the new Weezer record, then you will receive a wristband to get that brand new vinyl signed by the band and then a live performance in the back. We call this win win.
Small Black, Frankie Rose @ The Bowery Ballroom – Brooklyn indie rockers Small Black will be chilling at the Bowery Ballroom this Saturday, performing with diverse songstress Frankie Rose. Check them out!
Young Fathers @ MHOW – This Scottish trio have been making huge waves the last year for their eclectic and electric style that just cant be pigeonholed into one genre. Wear your most comfortable dancing shoes for what should be one of the best gigs of the week.
The California Honeydrops @ Knitting Factory – This blues and R&B band were born playing Oakland’s subway stations, and as their website boasts, “don’t just play music – they throw parties.” One such party will be happening at the Knitting Factory this Sunday.
