NYC Concerts Overview

Cold War Kids - Concert in NYC

Few cities can boast anywhere near the music scene that New York has, so it’s no surprise that denizens can practically throw a stick and hit one of the endless arrays of concerts in New York.

Major live music venues have names recognized all over the world; names that inspire up-and-coming bands to daydream about the day they grace the magnificent stages at places like Madison Square Garden, Radio City Music Hall, or the Apollo Theater.

From Manhattan to Brooklyn, it’s easy to find concerts to satisfy anyone’s taste, no matter how mainstream or way the hell off-stream they may be. The strongest alternative scene thrives in Brooklyn, with gritty dives exploding with punk and metal concerts, yet blocks away there are probably jazz, blues, and classical concerts too.

Terminal 5, the Rose Theater, and the Highline Ballroom are great spots to catch both up-and-coming as well as established NYC acts, as are Death + Company, Webster Hall, Bowery Ballroom, and the Izod Center. Top DJs are all but guaranteed at Randalls Island, and of course major clubs like Pacha attract the biggest DJs in the entire world.

It doesn’t matter what kind of music you want to hear in The Big Apple, because New York concerts are so diverse it would be impossible not to find something to enjoy.
