Topping our list of shows to see this week are some true “buzz” bands-Washed Out, Grimes and Blood Orange-together at the Bowery Ballroom. Everyone should have a few free shows on their radar, and this week you’ve got three to choose from: Tombs at St Vitus, Ted Leo + The Pharmacists / Screaming Females at the South Street Seaport, and Raekwon / Smif N Wessun in Prospect Park. (Plus there’s Santigold, Swizz Beats and Joe Jonas at House of Vans for a secret show tonight, if you were lucky enough to get on the RSVP list. Let us know if you can get us in!)
In the mood to dance? Check out Warm [email protected] this Saturday. Headlined by Four Tet, the lineup from top to bottom is solid, and includes an appearance by SBTRKT (the band we are seeing tonight @ Glasslands). Without further ado, here are our Top 10 Shows for the next seven days.
