The Very Best of Music

GO’s music picks for October.


Lock up your daughters folks, because on Nov 11, Bitch assaults Joe’s Pub on a leg of her national tour to showcase her album Make This/Break This. Armed with a fistful of politically-charged, pop culture-driven and personal songs, Bitch has enough ammunition to leave any crowd aching for more.

At Crash Mansion on Nov 3, British soul singer and multi-instrumentalist Kirsten Price performs songs from her new debut album, a genre-straddling blend of old school soul, classic compositional chops and 21st century technology that defies definition. With a voice that just pulls you in and an attitude that threatens to spit you out, Price promises to wow the crowd.

Oct 12–20, the Electronic Music Foundation presents the second installment of Ear to the Earth, a unique festival of sound, music and ecology launched to support and inspire the creation of sound art as a way to engage in environmental issues. This year’s festival offers concerts, sonic/visual events, sound walks and a forum, all exploring sound as a tool to better understand our relationship to an endangered world.
