What an Amazing Week of Shows We’ve Got Ahead of Us
Your Weekly Bulletin is Here!
MON — Music Hall of Williamsburg — 8PM
Whitney make casually melancholic music that combines the wounded drawl of Townes Van Zandt, the rambunctious energy of Jim Ford, the stoned affability of Bobby Charles, the American otherworldliness of The Band, and the slack groove of early Pavement. Formed from the core of guitarist Max Kakacek and singing drummer Julien Ehrlich, the band itself is something bigger, something visionary, something neither of them could have accomplished alone.
MON — Terminal 5 — 7PM
Héloïse Letissier, known by her stage name Christine and the Queens, is coming to Terminal 5! This inimitable French singer-songwriter will blow your mind with her deep, sonorous vibes. Don’t sleep on this tonight.
TUES and WED — Barclays Center — 6:30PM
Guys, do we really need to hype this concert series any more? It’s Drake, it’s Future, why don’t you already have tickets yet? Get them now!
TUES — Co-Cathedral of St. Joseph — 8PM
New York City based Blonde Redhead has always been a band that innovates with each album. Their music is always inspired by the same emotions, but their tastes and the ways they choose to execute those emotions are constantly evolving.
TUES — Music Hall of Williamsburg —9PM
Alex Ridha — better known to the world as BOYS NOIZE — has been making electronic music and working as a DJ for over half of his life. He established himself as one of the world’s preeminent wizards behind the decks, having played the world’s biggest stages alongside the biggest names in dance
WED — Baby’s All RIght — 7PM
WED — Baby’s All Right — 11:59PM
In spite of its own lost soul whistfulness, there’s something immediately comforting and simple at the core of “No Woman,” the latest sonic missive from Chicago’s Whitney. It’s as unfettering and wind-through-your-hair of America’s “Pacific Coast Highway” — albeit here in an edible-induced cruise control.
THU — Terminal 5–7:30PM
Holy Ghost! are making great dance music that is beyond passing trends, that gets to the very heart of why we love music, that touches our most simple, direct, inborn reactions to sound.
One of the world’s most universally respected DJ duos, L.A. natives and childhood best friends Classixx have headlined everywhere from the famed Paris Social Club to New York’s Webster Hall. At once beaming, breezy and wistful, Hanging Gardens features a variety of coastal summer anthems.
THU — Winter Garden at Brookfield Place — 8:30PM
FRI — Good Room — 10PM
FRI and SAT — Music Hall of Williamsburg — 8PM
It’s DJ Shadow! You don’t need any more to get you excited for this show. Get tickets and go!
FRI and SAT — Terminal 5 — 12:AM
Another amazing performance that barely needs an introduction. You want a good time this weekend? Look no further.
SAT — Bowery Ballroom — 7PM
Six years used to be a lifetime in rock ’n’ roll. Kids driven by the urgency of youth form bonds, plug in, play gigs, find a label. Acclaim, exhaustion, over and out.
SAT — Le Poisson Rouge — 8PM
Chrome Sparks is the solo project of Jeremy Malvin, a Brooklyn transplant from Pittsburgh by way of Ann Arbor. In 2014, after having self released a small handful of singles and two EPs on Bandcamp, Malvin signed to the taste making Sydney based label Future Classic. Under the new label, he rereleased Sparks EP and released the Goddess EP. His next EP, Parallelism is slated to be released with Future Classic on November 6.
SUN — Terminal 5 — 7PM
Approaching the new album, one could argue that everything is different for the band but they tried not to treat it that way. CHVRCHES returned to the same Scottish hometown studio that had housed them during the recording of their first LP, their basic goal to shut off the outside world and get back to what they know best: writing. This show will be an amazing one and by far the best way to close out your Sunday. Go!
