1. DIIV @ Music Hall of Willamsburg (7/10 + 7/11)

DIIV-best shows nyc

A second show was added at Music Hall of Williamsburg due to high demand.

Why?: One of Brooklyn’s finest upstarts plays a hometown show. Expect a great atmosphere and a sold-out crowd for the two-show stint. The fuzzy vibes and synths should fill the Music Hall of Williamsburg nicely in the summer heat, and of course, there’s always the chance you’ll see Sky Ferreira there (we hear she’s a fan).

2. Guided by Voices @ Irving Plaza (7/11)

Robert Pollard and GBV take Irving Plaza

Why?: The reinvigorated GBV are nothing short of garage rock legends. Since forming in 1983, the band remains prolific with their latest record Cool Planet. In a live setting, they’re notoriously raucous, and the antics of Robert Pollard are worth the price of admission alone.

3. Hot Chip @ Verboten (7/10) [DJ Set]

Get ready to dance.

Why?: Verboten is steadily becoming one of the best underground clubs in NYC, and by extension, one of the best places to “get yr freak on.” There will be plenty of that stuff going on, as Hot Chip prepare to rattle the walls with their upcoming DJ set.

4. Justin Timberlake @ Hammerstein Ballroom (7/10)

Justin Timberlake will rock the Hammerstein on Thursday

Why?: Like him or not, JT puts on one hell of a show. The chance to see him in the comparatively intimate confines of Hammerstein, as opposed to cavernous arenas, is enough to get us excited. And, as long as he’s in NYC, perhaps there’s a chance he’ll drip down for a guest appearance at the show mentioned below…?

  • Avg. Market Price: $180
  • Trends: Prices have reached a high. Look for them to drop for day-of steals. 
  • Pro Tip: Keep a watchful eye.
