Thomas Rhett Concert - Madison Square Garden

Judah & the Lion - Terminal 5
September 20, 2019 - New York

For Judah & the Lion, the last two years should've been the best of their lives as the Nashville band toured behind a powerful single and a genre-upending album, sharing stages with heroes and playing to oceans of fans. But as everything was coming together for them, singer-guitarist Judah Akers' family was falling apart in a hail of alcoholism and affairs, death and divorce. From that tension comes Pep Talks, the trio's third LP and a hard left turn into deeply personal terrain. Knowing they had something new on their hands, Judah, Brian Macdonald (mandolin), and Nate Zuercher (banjo) took their time crafting a set of songs that not only shores up their one-of-akind sound—a heart-pounding whirl of folk, bluegrass, rock, hip-hop and electronic production— but takes the listener on a bracingly candid, surprisingly anthemic journey from the kind of pain that tears your whole world apart to the sort of hard-won hope that can bridge the deepest of rifts.

RIDE The Spirit Of The Beehive - Brooklyn Steel
September 21, 2019 - Brooklyn

Ages: 16 & Over Waving farewell to the Eighties: it was biggest pop kick there'd been in, ooh, ten years. During that godforsaken, musically atrocious decade, it was them and us. We hadn't got a prayer. Our stuff didn't register in corporate demographic terms, it was too vague and indefinable. And it didn't register in the charts. There would be the occasional triumph, as the The Smiths, the Bunnymen or the Mary Chain made a lightning raid on the Top 20, only to limp back to obscurity the following week. So, come the tail end of 1989, there was a mood of battered, hopeless optimism. As we took our huddled flight into the Nineties, a bolt from nowhere, from Oxford, overturned the inherent pessimism in that optimism and gave us something to believe in. Ride had tunes, noise, looks, style, confidence, everything. And they had youth: their two guitar-playing singers Mark Gardener and Andy Bell were both just 19, as was drummer Laurence 'Loz' Colbert. Stephen Queralt, the bassist, was an oldster at 21. They'd come together on a foundation course at North Oxford Art College and had been playing around the Thames Valley area for less than a year. Already, though, they looked and sounded... (read more)

Like a comet that burns far too brightly to last, Joplin exploded onto the music scene in 1967 and, almost overnight, became the Queen of Rock 'n' Roll. Her unmistakable voice, filled with raw emotion and tinged with Southern Comfort, made Joplin a must-see headliner from Monterey to Woodstock. Audiences will enjoy Joplin's favorites, including "Piece of My Heart," "Cry Baby," "Me and Bobby McGee," and many others.

1964 the Tribute - The Paramount
September 21, 2019 - Huntington

Experience a Beatles' Concert the way it was performed over 50 years ago…The Show: "1964" focuses on the quintessential moment in history, when The Beatles actually played before a LIVE audience. The Beatles toured the world in the early 1960's, but now only a precious few remain who actually saw them LIVE. Who actually felt the "mania" that brought them to world acclaim. Today, all that remains are a few scant memories and some captured images in pictures and on poor quality film and video. "1964" meticulously re-creates the "MAGIC" of those LIVE Beatles' performances with artful precision and unerring accuracy.

Traxx & DJ Speculator (Willie Burns) + The Funky Seshwa - Good Room
Through September 21, 2019 - Brooklyn

Traxx and DJ Speculator (aka Willie Burns) play together on 09.20 plus The Funky Seshwa in the Bad Room with Willy Soul and Discounts About this Event Traxx is a lover of music — one with a passion so intense that it overcomes genre divides to weave an altogether original, exciting, and multi-textured musical fabric which envelops both the avid clubber and the home listener, as well as everyone in between. Not content to be labeled as merely a DJ, a producer, or even a DJ/Producer, Traxx is a self-described "artist of sound." A sound that is distinctive and highly emotional which defies classification and invites analysis and discussion. From eclectic and avant-garde tunes to old school jack tracks and far beyond, Traxx hears it all without discrimination, pretension or elitism. He's playing at Good Room on 09.20 with Good Room resident DJ Speculator aka Willie Burns. Willie Burns is one of the most experienced musicians on the New York scene. Active since 2000, he is a DJ, producer under various alliances (Speculator, Black Deer, Grackle), radio host and label owner, running W.T. Records. He has also collaborated with such producers as Legowelt and Professor Genius.

Flux Capacitor W/S/G Space Kadet - Funk 'n Waffles
September 22, 2019 - Syracuse

Ages 18 and Up Born and raised (literally) as a power trio, the Specht brothers' intuitive dynamics are the engine of Flux Capacitor's progressive, psychedelic rock sound. Steady regional touring, emanating from their Reading, PA home base earned the band broader recognition, ultimately landing them on festivals like Bonnaroo, Peach Fest, Wormtown Music Festival, Domefest and Werk-Out West. Flux Capacitor's melding of varied rock idioms with elements of electronica- in the context of fluid improvisation- and an ear for melody and song structure made them a perfect fit for support gigs with artists like Papadosio, Lotus, Dopapod, Twiddle, The And and others who share a musical and cultural aesthetic with Flux Capacitor and their steadily growing fan base. With three full length albums, a live album and three singles under their belt, Flux will be releasing a fourth studio album in 2018

Musical Salute to Aretha Franklin, Anita Baker and Whitney Houston - Groove
September 22, 2019 - New York

The Music of Aretha Franklin, Anita Baker and Whitney Houston Feat. Emilie Surtees For a singer with such powerful pipes, it's something of a shock to hear vocalist Emilie Surtees describe herself as primarily a "listener." Then again, maybe it's her extraordinary capacity to listen that gives her tribute to Aretha Franklin, Anita Baker and Whitney Houston its amazing accuracy. Surtees not only replicates hit songs, power note for power note, but communicates the soul of each singer who originally recorded them — something that requires not only incredible vocals but also a profound appreciation of music. Be moved and amazed by a tribute artist every bit as talented as the singers she honors in this concert at Club Gr

Black Moth Super Rainbow - Brooklyn Bowl
September 22, 2019 - Brooklyn

If you haven't panicked lately, you're either blissfully ignorant or have gone completely clear. For the rest of us attempting to navigate the political, economical, and cultural carnage, Edvard Munch's "The Scream" succinctly captures the statue of psychic dislocation. Or N.W.A.'s "The Panic Zone." Or Black Moth Super Rainbow's Panic Blooms, the latest disorienting dystopian masterpiece from the experimental pop arsonists that haunt the black-leaved Pennsylvania woods. For the last decade, BMSR and frontman TOBACCO have explored the periphery of evil and extreme color, alternating between absurdly bright beauty and the slashed throat sinister. A sound impossible to replicate, as though it burst fully formed from a paisley-painted fire hydrant stationed in hell. They combine the aesthetically gorgeous with the hideously ugly to create a psychedelic uneasiness usually only seen in old oil paintings. What if Goya or Bosch made ravaged vocoder pop? Or a neo-impressionist painter committed himself to creating slow woozy earworms so iridian and vivid you'd think he sliced off an ear in the process. We know scarcely anything personal about TOBACCO. There's his government name, Tom Fec.... (read more)
