Live music fans know all too well that tickets for NYC concerts go quickly, but fret not: Time Out New York has you covered with the latest show announcements. Don’t miss out this time and grab these tickets now before they're gone!
The Blood Brothers: October 5 at Warsaw
Post-hardcore fans rejoice—venomous genre veterans the Blood Brothers announced this year that they’ll be reuniting for the first time since their 2007 breakup. Opening are Violent Bullshit, fronted by Jayson Green of screamo innovators Orchid. Tickets go on sale Friday, August 8 at 10am.
Pond: October 15 at Bowery Ballroom, October 18 at Rough Trade NYC
If you require evidence of Pond’s psych-rock credentials, consider that the band shares half its members with trippy powerhouse Tame Impala. If you need still more, consider that Pond's upcoming release is titled Man, It Feels Like Space Again. You’ll have two chances to catch the intrepid psychedelic explorers this fall. Tickets go on sale Friday, August 8 at noon.
Avi Buffalo: November 6 at Mercury Lounge
Back in 2010, high-school-aged twee-popsters Avi Buffalo (yes, it’s a band, not a person) released their self-titled debut to wide acclaim, and then spent the next four years in silence. Fortunately, you’ll finally have a chance to hear new material this November as the Buffalo returns with At Best Cuckold—we’re sure these kids only get better with age. Tickets go on sale Friday, August 8 at noon.
O.A.R. : November 28, 29 at Hammerstein Ballroom
What does O.A.R. stand for? Of A Revolution. What does that mean? Not sure. For a band with such a name, O.A.R.'s brand of radio-ready roots rock isn’t particularly rebellious. Nonetheless, nothing like chart-friendly anthems to start off a weekend. Tickets go on sale Friday, August 8 at 10am.
Death (DTA): Nov 30 at Best Buy Theater
There’s Death, the ’70s Detroit protopunks, and there’s Death, the ’80s death-metal progenitors. As a tribute band to the latter—featuring ex-bandmates of late, great Death leader Chuck Schuldiner—DTA (Death To All) is technically neither of these. These riff merchants hit Best Buy Theater in November with two other morbidly named bands, Obituary and Massacre. Tickets go on sale Friday, August 8 at noon.
