Big show heads up bolt

Updated. Thanks, commenters!

Wow, there are a LOT of concerts in September and especially October. Here’s your handy guide, repurposed from Misael, who you should follow on Tumblr.

  • August 31: Hank Williams III at Culture Room
  • September 11: Crystal Castles at Grand Central
  • September 18: Surfer Blood and The Drums at Grand Central
  • September 18: Toro y Moi at the Electric Pickle
  • September 23: Neil Young at Hard Rock Live
  • September 24: CocoRosie at Revolution
  • October 2: Phantogram at the Electric Pickle
  • October 5: Yeasayer at the Fillmore
  • October 6: LCD Soundsystem and Sleigh Bells at the Fillmore
  • October 14: Vampire Weekend and Beach House at the Fillmore
  • October 15: Matt and Kim at the Culture Room
  • October 16: Built to Spill at the Culture Room
  • October 19: Caribou at Grand Central
  • October 19: Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros at the Culture Room
  • October 26: MGMT at the Fillmore
  • October 26: Massive Attack And Thievery Corporation at Bayfront Park
  • October 27: Phoenix at the Fillmore
  • November 7: Wolf Parade at the Fillmore

Added later: So here’s my problem. Some of these bands I know and dislike, some I know and like, so that’s easy. But a few of them I know nothing about. I could download albums or listen to them on MySpace or whatever and try to form an opinion, right? (OK, actually that’s obviously what i should do.) But sometimes it’s cool to have your first experience of a band be a live show? So what I need is some way to get an idea of the quality of a band quickly. How about this: a Firefox plugin that, when you right-click the name of a band, it instantly searches Pitchfork album reviews and shows the highest score any of the band’s albums have ever gotten on there. Or maybe the highest + the average score for a little flavor. Or maybe the highest + the average + the # reviewed + the # of albums the band has released. Am I making any sense? Sometimes it’s hard to tell when I’m a bit hungover.

Miami goes so long without a good show and then they all come here at once. These bands want me to go broke!
