Pumpkin flavored everything has invaded our shores, meaning only one thing, it’s definitely fall. The cool part about this is that the bands that were once on the festival circuit are now actually touring on their own, so sort out your musical calendar with our handy pancake picks below.
JEFF The Brotherhood @ Market Hotel – This band of brothers is definitely one of the hot rock acts coming at us right now, in the age of shoegaze and electro-folk, there is no wondering what genre they are. Just trust us, if you just want to rock, head out to Market Hotel and we’ll see you there.
4AD Revue @ Irving Plaza w/ The Lemon Twigs, Methyl Ethel & Pixx – 4AD is an iconic indie-label based out of England, come see their newest signings in what is sure to be an incredible night of fresh music.
Crushed Out & High Waisted @ Good Room – Most likely this will be the party of the week with some great and energetic live bands. Come out to hear the new record from Crushed Out and then get your surf-rock on with our pals High Waisted.
Glass Animals @ T5 – Lucky for you this show isn’t sold out like Thursday’s gig the following night. Expect Terminal 5 to be transformed into something totally different as soon as you walk through the doors, lead singer Dave Bayley told us last week. Their new album is one of our favorites of the year so don’t miss out.
Janelle Monàe & Nate Reuss @ SummerStage – If you are a Capital One Bank customer, this one is exclusively for you and it’s pretty special with the ever impressive Janelle Monàe.
Diet Cig & Acid Dad @ Knitting Factory – If you prefer your rock n’ roll with no frills and played at high decibels, this is the show for you. Enjoy the city’s finest rockers at one of our favorite venues.
Bob Moses & No Regular Play @ T5 – Bob Moses mixes legit dance music with rock undertones that will make you lose your mind when they play it all live.
The Meadows Festival @ Citi Field – The inaugural festival seems to have something for everyone and on Saturday we really look forward to sets from Frightened Rabbit, Kamasi Washington, Sylvan Esso, Savages, Grimes, Damien Marley, and J. Cole. The Weeknd had been nixed from the lineup, but is now back on with an earlier set-time at 6:15 to accommodate his SNL appearance, which is just amazing for all.
Blood Orange @ T5 – Dev Hynes aka Blood Orange is a one-of-a-kind performer who reminds us of stars of the past with his incredible energy, dance moves and impeccable voice.
The Meadows Festival @ Citi Field – The second day of the festival ramps it up even further with sets from Mail The Horse, Charles Bradley, Robert Delong, Jack Garratt, Borns, Cage The Elephant, The 1975, Chance The Rapper and Kanye West.
