The Very Best of NYC Music

Julia Weldon, Phantogram, Lindsay Katt and much more

Queer recording artist, writer and film producer Lindsay Katt is returning to Joe’s Pub on June 15 to perform her rich and memorably melodic pop music. She’ll be performing fan favorites from her extensive catalog and previewing new songs from her upcoming new album, The Avant-Gardener. Be sure to check it out when it debuts, as a full “filmtrack” will accompany it: 10 music videos that connect to create a short narrative film.

The electronic rock duo Phantogram have been touring nonstop across the globe for two years now, and it’s no secret why they’re in such high demand: their live shows are sonically and visually remarkable. Currently touring in support of their second album, Voices, don’t miss Sarah Barthel and Josh Carter rock Terminal 5 on Jun 16. Dance to anthems like “Black Out Days”, “Mouthful of Diamonds” and “When I’m Small.”

Julia Weldon recently revealed that she’s pursuing music full time at her last Rockwood Music Hall performance, and we couldn’t be happier! Head out to the Knitting Factory on Jun 19 for her "Meadow" video release concert, a beautiful song off her latest album Light is a Ghost. Come out to see the video, and stay to hear this rising star sing additional lovely tracks from the album.

Head to hotspot Fontana’s on Jun 26 for one of the biggest concert events of Pride: Girl on Girl, A Pride Concert Event. Posture Magazine is hosting a night of live music to benefit the documentary Girl on Girl. Headliners Hunter Valentine will be joined by lezzie faves Hannah and Maggie, Boys, Mal Blum Band, Drew Davis, The Pushovers and SoDisrespectful with Toni Ménage.

We're currently crushing on the lesbian duo called Hannah and Maggie, a young but accomplished folk act. They've been favorably compared to Simon & Garfunkel and The Indigo Girls, but these ladies have a sound and an undeniable originality that's all their own. Let them prove it to you on Jun 27 at Arlene's Grocery!

For someone who's still considered young, Canadian-born Sarah McLachlan is an old, old favorite with a strong lesbian fan base. The multiplatinum-selling artist hits the Beacon Theatre for two live shows on Jul 22 and 23, on her “Shine On” tour, promoting her first album in four years.
