Jagwar Ma: Rough Trade NYC, December 2, $15
Australian exports Jagwar Ma mix Madchester melodies and psych-pop detours for a sound that's as catchy as it is danceable. The show at the newly opened Rough Trade NYC venue/record shop in Williamsburg will be a joy to behold.
Monday, December 2, 9 p.m., Rough Trade NYC, 64 North 9th Street (between Kent and Wythe Avenues).
King Krule: Webster Hall, December 4, $20
Provocative, precocious Archie Marshall (a.k.a. King Krule) bellowed through one of the year's best records, 6 Feet Beneath the Moon. Live, Marshall's knotty songwriting plumbs even deeper waters.
Wednesday, December 4, 7 p.m., Webster Hall, 125 East 11th Street (between 3rd and 4th Avenues); 212-353-1600.
A$AP Ferg: Irving Plaza, December 6, $20
With Trap Lord, A$AP Ferg proved the A$AP Mob has more burgeoning talent than just it's charismatic ringleader. It also happens that Ferg and the rest of the crew are one of the most fun live acts in hip-hop. This is a show not to miss.
Friday, December 6, 7 p.m., Irving Plaza, 17 Irving Place (between 15th and 16th Streets); 212-777-6800.
