Cut Copy @ Pitchfork Music Festival 2011

NYC’s live music scene continues to bang on through the heat & humidity with an interesting mix of shows this week. We’ve got some well-known, genre-crossing singer-songwriters like Bon Iver and Bob Dylan…you may have heard of him. If you’re more into dreamy synth-based rock that harkens back to 80s, there’s Cut Copy at Prospect Park or Small Black’s more intimate (and FREE) gig at Mercury Lounge. For something a little jammy, Zach Deputy’s doing his loop pedal thing at Southpaw and we’ve got two nights of instrumental Zeppelin madness with Bustle in Your Hedgerow at Brooklyn Bowl. On the indie, proggy, experimental side, there’s Woods w/ Ducktails at the Bowery as well as the bigger indie rock darlings like Sonic Youth and Kurt Vile at the Williamsburg Waterfront. But the sleeper show of the week (technically, next week) is a band called Music for Money who’s kicking off four nights in NYC with a show at the Charleston in Brooklyn. If you dig the eclectic, experimental styles of Tortoise or Battles, you’ll want to check them out.
