After a 5-year pause, the iconic Indie/Alternative/Folk rock band, The Shins' released the album; Heartworms, this past Spring. The release was accompanied by a wave of rave reviews and praise. Many are claiming it's the best work James Mercer, lead singer arguably sole official band member, has produced since The Shins' peak, following Oh, Inverted World, in 2001.
Not only are The Shins coming to perform in Brooklyn this month, but they've been reaching out to fans asking that we partake in choosing the setlist for their shows. AND while you make your dream setlist here, you also earn a chance at winning free tickets!
American Rock band from Brooklyn NY; Grizzly Bear, is bringing it home for three back to back concerts. The group just recently released a new album this past August, titled Painted Ruins, with a setlist that both stays true to their familiar style, while also taking on a slightly new sound that is really keeping things interesting.
You'll definitely want to catch them at The Brooklyn Steel, grab those tickets!

Macklemore has been throwing us hits left and right with the recent release of his album; Gemini, featuring various artists like Offset, Kesha, and Skylar Grey.
As we know, the artist has always been an activist, speaking out and producing work which reflects his concern for various social issues. He recently paired up with Plus1, donating $1 from every ticket sold towards combating racial and social injustice.
The Strumbellas are making their way to NY and their show is sure to be as eclectic and unpredictable as their always exciting musical style. If you've yet to get into these guys, their feel-good, folky sound always makes for a great time, we recommend you check it out for yourself.
Not-so-fun-fact, you must be 16 or over to go, or come with an adult, tickets starting at only $35!

While The Wild Reeds may not yet be on your musical radar, if you're a folk music connoisseur, you'll definitely want to get on board. Forming in 2010, the band's three members Sharon Silva, Kinsey Lee, and Mackenzie Howe, create a beautiful and soothing, while also upbeat harmony that'll blow you away.

This night will feature performances from multiple rap artists, with both Dipset and A$AP Mob are from right here in Harlem, NY.
AND Dipset haven't performed locally in over two years. So this is big. Get your tickets!
Bob Dylan is coming to The Beacon this November, performing six nights in a row, which thankfully gives you multiple opportunities to make the show.
Though some of "us" are still a bit sour about him not showing up and surprising us at the Bob Dylan Tribute at Newport Folk Festival three summers ago... "We" are willing to settle the hatchet.
Grab tickets here, they're going fast of course!
Jay-Z is on tour and coming to Barclays Center this month. If you missed him at the Meadows back in September, then this is definitely something to catch. Gotta catch a living legend when you still have a chance.
And we can only pray that one of the several artists featured in his 4:44 show up and join him on stage. Like, Beyonce perhaps?
Whatever the case, it's a show we don't want to miss. Catch the tickets here.[Feature Image Courtesy flickr]
