The Best Indie Shows Hand-picked Each Week
While it’s going to be very difficult not to think about this Friday’s release of The Dark Knight Rises all week, there are some very worthy detractions in concerts from Hot Chip, Chromatics, Field Mouse, Here We Go Magic, Bear Hands, and more. Hot Chip is sold out, but I added a pre-searched Craigslist link below to help you on your way to electro pop heaven. Meanwhile, our #1 concert of the week is actually two, from Portland, Oregon band Chromatics who will be playing Dekalb Market during the day on Sunday and Music Hall of Williamsburg at night.
Thanks for checking out our suggested New York City indie concerts list! We won’t list everything that’s going on — just a short collection of great shows happening in our city that you shouldn’t miss this week. And to make it as easy for you as possible, you can listen to all the bands and sometimes get some free MP3s!
