The best of NYC music

Sept 29 at the Delancey, join rock powerhouse Sarah Greenwood and her band GSX as they play Dirty Bomb: NYC’s monthly rock’n’roll house party. Sarah Greenwood’s throaty vocal stylings and aggressive presence help her hold her own in a genre of music dominated by men. This event also features Girls Girls Girls, an all-female Mötley
Crüe tribute band.

Every Sept 11, thousands of musicians jam out in the name of peace as part of the annual September Concert, a music festival launched to celebrate humanity through the power of music—in all areas of our city, our nation and our world. Over 100 concerts will be performed in parks and venues throughout the New York City, in conjunction with concerts in over 50 other U.S. cities. The concert promotes freedom, peace and equality, and this year’s event features a special performance by BETTY.

The Public Theater marks the return of Joe’s Pub In The Park, a two-week series of paid and free concerts at The Delacorte Theater in Central Park, Sept 19–30. Joe’s Pub In The Park kicks off with a series of full-length performances by legendary girl-group diva Lesley Gore, singer-songwriter/pop-satirist Jill Sobule and the innovative punk-noir trio The New Standards, plus performances by alt-country star Patty Griffin, Italian pop star Carmen Consoli, acclaimed Brazilian vocalist Luciana Souza and New York’s own Morley.

Chick-fronted DEVO cover band DEVA school you in all things punk and glam at Fontana’s on Sept 7 in an ultra-cool Nu-Artskool event. Self-proclaimed rock ‘n’ roll cheerleaders for DEVO, DEVA whips up the idiosyncratic sounds of their favorite quirky ’80s group using choreographed dance moves, special effects orchestrated by Booji “Moogie” Boy, and rotating costume themes each performance.
