Ticket alert: The best New York concerts on sale this week

Andrew Frisicano

Between enjoying the city's first springtime weather and dying your beard green for St. Patrick's Day, it's understandable if you missed some of this week's big concert announcements. No worry, we've got you covered. SummerStage announced that it'd be rolling out its lineup of free-summer music one artist at a time over the next 30 days, as a way of celebrating its 30th anniversary and deeply annoying anyone hoping to starting making definite summer plans. So far, acts include electropop party-starters Caribou, Tuareg guitarist Bombino and Brooklyn MC Masta Ace. In other news, the expertly curated Red Bull Music Academy released its monthlong calendar of heady concerts, talks and dance parties in May. Among the can't-miss events are two blockbuster shows with London neosoul enigma FKA twigs. Grab tickets to those gigs and others below.
