New York’s Finest

Local bands of the moment come home.

  1. 1. Clap Your Hands Say Yeah

    September 28 at Rumsey Playfield

    Their first show ever was less than three years ago at Hell’s Kitchen dive Siberia; now David Byrne–ish singer Alec Ounsworth and his quirky cohorts tackle one of the city’s biggest outdoor venues.

  2. 2. Secret Machines

    October 2 and 3 at Irving Plaza

    Since forming in 2000, this outer-borough trio has built a national following on its inimitably epic live shows.

  3. 3. The Hold Steady

    October 1 at Irving Plaza

    At their most recent local show (a free concert at Castle Clinton), the hard-rocking critical darlings played with full horn and string sections; their new album, Boys and Girls in America, showcases a more polished side of the band.
