First, go over to your window(s), open it/them, feel the fresh non-tropical breeze upon your face and crack a smile, the sauna we’ve called summer has chilled out a whole lot. Make up for all that time lost while you didn’t want to leave the comfort of the AC and Netflix with some shows this week. Use our handy “Pancake Picks” guide below to sort your musical calendar.
Doris Cellar @ Astoria Bier & Cheese Ditmars – Head on out to one of the lesser known boroughs for music tonight and catch this eclectic performance by Doris Cellar. We caught her last week and her multiple genre set will keep you entranced.
UB40 & The Wailers @ T5 – Start your week off right with some reggae music with legends UB40 and Bob Marley’s old band, The Wailers.
Weaves @ Mercury Lounge – Last year for our CMJ party (R.I.P) Weaves pretty much stole the show, and quite possibly the whole week with their incredible live performance. Don’t miss this fantastic band for what is sure to be a highlight of the week.
Mustardmind @ Rockwood – While not much is known about the local indie-rockers, we do dig their music that they released in the last year, so catch em for free at good old Rockwood at 11pm.
Moon Hooch @MHOW – If you like horns, then this is the show for you. This local group, who made their fame in the bowels of the city playing the subway has come a long way since those days so come on out and support our own.
Pigpen Theatre Co. @ Brooklyn Bowl – Ever want more than just a musical show? Be sure to check out this fantastic group that combines theater and music for an incredible live experience.
Dick Dale @Brooklyn Bowl – Go to Brooklyn to see one of the all-time great guitarists in Dick Dale. This dude literally invented the “surf-guitar” sound way back in the 50’s so go pay your respects and boogie down.
Prophets Of Rage @ Barclays Center – Make America RAGE again at the Barclays center with legends from Public Enemy, Rage Against The Machine and Cypress Hill. If you’re sick of the elections, then get your ass to Brooklyn and let your voice be heard for what is sure to be a heavy night of music.
