The Black Keys + Cage the Elephant

  • Price band: 2/4
  • Critics choice

The Black Keys, the little Akron, OH, blues-rock duo that could, has evolved into a world-class psychedelic pop powerhouse, fueled by Dan Auerbach's cool croon and Patrick Carney's bouncy beats. Here, the pair supports its immersive latest, Turn Blue, with help from Cage the Elephant, a Kentucky

Jason Mraz and Raining Jane

Well-behaved singer-songsmith Jason Mraz, with an appeal to fans of David Gray or those who think Jack Johnson's gotten a bit too edgy in his old age, plays six area acoustic gigs, one in each borough (and two in Manhattan). The fedora-clad San Diegan is playing behind his latest, Yes!.

Lily Allen

  • Price band: 2/4

Five years and change after her last album, pop vixen Lily Allen returned to the spotlight earlier this year with a new effort, Sheezus. The sassy Brit attracted a fair bit of criticism: First, there were claims that her video for “Hard Out Here,” which employed only black backup dancers, was a

Steve Coleman and Five Elements

  • Price band: 2/4
  • Critics choice

Steve Coleman, a saxist and composer known for his masterful balance of braininess and groove, doesn't always receive the credit due an artist whose band was a training ground for many of today's rising stars (including Vijay Iyer, Jonathan Finlayson and Tyshawn Sorey), but his recent association

  • Price band: 2/4
  • Critics choice

Panda Bear, a.k.a. Animal Collective indie-pop visionary Noah Lennox, is currently working on Panda Bear Meets the Grim Reaper, the follow-up to 2011's Tomboy—a dazzling effort that paired Lennox's Beach Boys–y vocals with more organic, but still weird, musical textures. Odds are you'll get a

Slavic Soul Party!

  • Price band: 1/4
  • Critics choice

Of all the NYC dance bands that draw on Eastern European music, Slavic Soul Party!—in residency at Barbès for more than a decade—is the coolest. And the group isn’t preoccupied with rebelling against the Old World. Live, the band’s members prove they're acutely aware of the common

Christopher Owens

  • Price band: 2/4
  • Critics choice

Those still mourning the split of San Francisco’s psych-tinged indie-rock duo Girls, wipe away those tears: Frontman Christopher Owens's solo career seems to have stuck, and he's playing NYC just a week before the release of his second post-Girls LP, A New Testament. If the lead singles are any
