You know a show is going to be good when you can hear the bass hits form down the block. And when I say hear, I mean you could FEEL them from a block away. That's what greets concert goers on a random Monday night in Brooklyn when the likes of Sepalcure and SBTRKT come to town.
Sepalcure opened the show, but were certainly just as anticipated as the main event. The duo, pumping out some of the most serious house music I've heard in a while, kept the crowd going for almost an hour. Both the main floor and balcony were completely packed, and unlike most concerts, even most dance concerts, there wasn't a single person just standing there. Everyone was groovin' and vibing on the crazy ups and downs Sepalcure were dishing out.
Feeling musically starved? Need a concert fix? We've got you covered. Here are some incredible shows coming up in the next few weeks.
(p.s. If you got Kraftwerk Tickets, you suck.) (p.p.s. If there are any shows/artists you want us to add, comment below!)

1. NICOLAS JAAR
Nicolas Jaar made his debut on NY label Wolf + Lamb when he was only 17 years old. Now 21, he's released countless remixes, eight EPs, and one magnificent LP (Space Is Only Noise). Oh, he's also studying comparative literature at Brown and started his own record label and art house, Clown and Sunset. A couple months back he performed in a geodesic dome at MoMA PS1. Jaar describes his strain of minimalist house as "blue-wave." Though often too spacious for dancing, his beats are infectious and his hooks are mesmerizing. Jaar's jazz-flecked creations are emotional but not sappy, wry but not ironic, charming but not precious. Arguably, he's producing the most sophisticated works in his genre.
