The fall calendar continues to deliver after a sizzling summer lineup that saw many musicians return to more prominent indoor stages. There are even more alternatives; many artists perform back-to-back shows to satiate anxious fans.
Brooklyn Steel is the venue for an exciting array of performances. The twins that created Ibeyi will offer their exciting experimental essence on October 1. On October 10 and 11, the recently reunited avant-pop group Stereolab performs twenty years’ worth of post-rock jams, and the great Compton native Channel Tres experiments with his West Coast rap and house music mashup (Oct. 15). The second album by British bedroom-pop artist beabadoobee, titled “Beatopia,” will be released on October 28. And on November 8, Nashville-based singer-songwriter Sophie Allison will release “Sometimes, Forever,” her most recent album as Soccer Mommy, which O.P.N produced.
The dancing legend
Diana Ross performs at Radio City Music Hall on September 13; the flamenco pioneer Rosala makes two stops on her “MOTOMAMI” world tour on September 18 and 19, and the multi-media genius Lil Nas X keeps pushing his debut album, “Montero” (Sept. 20-21). A diverse range of music, primarily focused on movement, is featured in stadium performances. At Madison Square Garden (September 16–17), the baroque-pop group Florence and the Machine will celebrate the release of “Dance Fever,” its first album in four years. A few days later, on September 20, the father of reggaeton, Daddy Yankee, stops there as part of his farewell tour. The English DJs and producers Jamie xx and Four Tet perform at Forest Hills Stadium for electronic dance music fans (Sept. 23).
The Comet Is Coming
a jazz-fusion band led by Shabaka Hutchings will perform at Bowery Ballroom on September 9–10; Denzel Curry, a kamikaze rapper, will perform at Terminal 5 on October 6; Flying Lotus, the experimental founder of Brainfeeder, will perform at BAM’s Howard Gilman Opera House on October 6-7; and the up-and-coming Travis Barker–approved punk band KennyHoopla will play at Webster Hall on (Nov. 15).
