Ticket alert! Hot NYC concerts you don’t want to miss

Red Bull Music Academy: Flying Lotus

Flying Lotus: October 15 at Terminal 5
Since 2012’s excellent Until The Quiet Comes, reigning emperor of the L.A. electronic beat scene, Flying Lotus, pictured, has indeed been quiet (save for a few collaborations and a rap side-project Captain Murphy). The producer born Steven Ellison broke that silence recently, though, announcing a fifth album, You’re Dead!, with a supporting tour to boot. Labelmate collaborator, and fast-fingered fusion bassist Thundercat opens the NYC show with his singular brand of fuzzed-out electronic jazz. Tickets go on sale Friday, July 25 at noon

Jessie Ware: October 28 at Brooklyn Masonic Temple
Though her lofty pop anthems usually soar majestically above a sultry undercurrent, Jessie Ware’s new single “Tough Love”—off this year’s upcoming sophomore album of the same name—is surprisingly reserved. The tune still packs an emotional punch, but packages it a little more subtly. Hear it this fall when the soulful British popster hits Brooklyn. Ticket info TBA

Kimbra: Nov 2 at Bowery Ballroom
New Zealand pop star Kimbra’s come a long way since her limited Stateside renown as a featured guest on Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used to Know” (yeah, that song). Her headlining tour comes to Bowery this fall in support of upcoming release The Golden Echo, with NYC art-pop singer Empress Sound filling out the bill. Tickets go on sale Friday, July 25 at noon

Luscious Jackson: Nov 22 at The Bell House
The ’90’s alt-rock crew Luscious Jackson went kaput at the end of the millennium, but dedicated fans were rewarded for their faith, as the ladies reunited after nearly a decade apart to release a fourth full-length LP last fall. Head down to Brooklyn to hear the eclectically sugary new material at the band’s first reunion show in the borough it calls home.  Tickets go on sale Friday, July 25 at 10am

Skinny Puppy: Dec 2 at Best Buy Theater
Veteran industrial-metal crew Skinny Puppy has influenced many outside their subgenre—even contemporary indie-queen Grimes cites her first time hearing the band as a revelatory experience. The group's live show infamously includes everything from elaborate film-projection setups to mock Presidential executions. Needless to say, we’re excited to see what these British Columbian oddballs cook up next. Tickets go on sale Friday, July 25 at noon
