Sigur Ros, Vampire Weekend, & More Shows To Catch This Week

1
Sigur Rós, Tim Hecker: Madison Square Garden, March 25, $56
When it comes to awe inspiring, soul expanding, immaculately beautiful pop, it's hard to find another band that does as good a job as Iceland's Sigur Rós. Hearing the band's music swell from the stage of Madison Square Garden should truly be something to behold. Also, the chance to see decidedly non-commercial drone experimentalist Tim Hecker open the show will be an unlikely treat as well.
Monday, March 25, 7 p.m., Madison Square Garden, 2 Penn Plaza (between 7th and 8th avenues); 212-465-6741.
Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Sharon Van Etten: The Beacon Theatre, March 28, 29, and 30, $39.50
For three nights in a row, the ever-brooding, always awesome Nick Cave will take over the Beacon Theatre. While Cave will be hitting up some festivals this summer, seeing the Australian art rock pioneer in a dark theater is the way to go. The fantastic Sharon Van Etten will open all three dates.
Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, March 28, 29, and 30, 7 p.m., Beacon Theatre, 2124 Broadway (between 74th and 75th streets); 212-465-6500.
Mister Lies, Rimar, Heathered Pearls: Glasslands, March 30, $10
Up-and-coming Chicago producer and philosophy student Mister Lies blends genres like a watercolor artists mixes color. Beats simmer and melodies loop in subtle, often breathtaking fashion. Openers Rimar and Heathered Pearls are also capable of creating some truly gorgeous electronic soundscapes, too.
Saturday, March 30, 8:30 p.m., Glasslands, 289 Kent Ave (between South 1st and South 2nd streets); Brooklyn; 718-599-1450.
