The Best Live Music in NYC This Weekend

Wilco, KRS-One, Spoon, Kaleo, Big Thief, Lee Fields, We Were Promised Jetpacks, Kevin Devine, the Zombies, and Aimee Mann are among the long-established music acts that will be performing in New York City venues this weekend. Rising artists including Fuzz, Pimps of Joytime, the Motet,  Laundry Day, Tim Heidecker (And His Very Good Band), Geese, and other emerging music acts will impress their growing fan base. Dozens of equally-talented local artists will perform at the smaller bars and music venues.
