Things to do in New York this fall: six great live music shows: Savages, The Weeknd and Icona Pop

Hot newbies

Savages

You may not have yet formed an opinion on Savages, but chances are you’ve read plenty on them, whether adoring or skeptical. Make up your mind here, as the arrestingly severe postpunk revivalists air their dark, pounding manifestos at their biggest NYC gig yet. 8pm; $25, advance $23.

  1. Terminal 5 610 W 56th St, at Eleventh Ave
  2. Wed Oct 16

Icona Pop

The sassy Swedish electropop duo of Caroline Hjelt and Aino Jawo hits New York with the benefit of having scored what might be 2013’s zeitgeist single: “I Love It,” a sleek bit of irresistibly tuneful nihilism. Webster Hall, 125 E 11th St between Third and Fourth Aves (websterhall.com). Sept 20 at 7pm; sold out. • Music Hall of Williamsburg, 66 North 6th St between Kent and Wythe Aves, Williamsburg, Brooklyn (musichallofwilliamsburg.com). Sept 25 at 8:30pm; sold out.

The Weeknd

Will Abel Tesfaye make the leap from mystery-cloaked DIY buzz magnet to pro-hyped superstar? Turn up at his most impressive booking to date to size up this 23-year-old Toronto singer-producer—who’s been pushing R&B to ever lusher, edgier extremes under the Weeknd moniker—as he supports Kiss Land, his major-label debut. 8pm; $55.

  1. Radio City Music Hall 1260 Sixth Ave, at 50th St
