September Concerts Not to Miss

September 03, 2018

New York City has a thriving music scene. Mingle with the locals and check out our top three concerts this September. 

OctFest | Governors Island | Sept. 8th & 9th

Calling all beer and music lovers--Pitchfork and October have come together for the second year to bring you 20 bands and 90 breweries at this two-day festival on Governors Island. Classic acts such as Flaming Lips, Yo La Tengo, and Julie Byrne will be rocking out, while attendees can grab brews from India's Bira 91, Germany's Aktien, Blue Point, and Circa just to name a few. 

Rina Sawayama | Bowery Ballroom | Sept. 12th

Catch this London singer that fills her lighthearted music with pop-punk riffs and electric synths, while referencing societies fascination with new technology. 

David Byrne + Tune-Yards | Forest Hill Stadium | Sept. 15th. 16th. 17th

Former lead singer of the Talking Heads is returning to Forest Hill Stadium for the first time since his band played there in 1983. David Byrne, now a solo artist, has always been on our bucket list of artists to see live. We are so excited, and his new show is guaranteed to be a hit.
