1. Twin Peaks @ Baby’s All Right (8/14)

Look at these joke’sters.

Why?: The Mick Jagger swagger, the classic rock riffs, The Strokes “I don’t give a fuck” vibes… what’s not to like? Twin Peaks wear their influences on their sleeves, but there’s no denying the youthful energy this band brings. Now add that to an energized Brooklyn crowd at Baby’s All Right. That right there is a #1 show this week, folks.

Slonk plays with The Gradients, Sharpless, and The Nuclears.

Why?: When the fuzz starts oozing out of those amps, you’ll know you made the right call. Slonk Donkerson create nostalgia-tinged rock music. That’s right: nostalgia-tinged rock music; the kind that you can hear coming out of a broken boombox when you’re on LSD. But drugs are whack, so just see these guys live at Webster on Friday.

4. Wildcat Wildcat @ Mercury Lounge (8/13)

Why?: The synth-pop goodness will be slathered across the brick walls of Mercury Lounge by the time Wildcat Wildcat is done. Let’s hope it’s all over your face, too. Shit, did I sell that right? This band is really good. They have the late slot at Mercury and it should be really fun.

5. Echo and The Bunnymen @ Irving Plaza (8/16, 8/17)

Echo and the Bunnymen Announce 2014 US Tour

’80s legends play Irving Plaza.

Why?: With a name like Echo and The Bunnymen, you might not expect them to last this long, but this band just keeps going and going. Their latest stop is Union Square’s Irving Plaza for two dates. Expect some music to be performed live.
