Sigur Ros, Chairlift, And More Shows To Catch This Week

1
Sigur Rós, Perfume Genius: July 31, Prospect Park Bandshell, $42
This Tuesday’s show for the ongoing Celebrate Brooklyn concert series features angelically-voiced post-rockers Sigur Rós and the heartfelt pop of Perfume Genius (aka Seattle native Mike Hadreas). While Prospect Park may not be the wilds of Iceland, we can't think of a two better bands for relaxing under the stars.
Tuesday, July 31, 7p.m. Prospect Park Bandshell, Prospect Park West (between 10th and 11th streets); Brooklyn.

Washed Out, Chairlift, Lemonade: August 2, House of Vans, FREE with RSVP
The super summer-centric lineup this week at The House of Vans features the chillwave-y textures of Washed Out, Chairlift's maximal pop, and the island-R&B grooves of Lemonade, whose excellent album Diver we premiered back in May.
Thursday, August 2, 8 p.m., House of Vans, 25 Franklin Street (at Meserole Street); Brooklyn.
Blood Diamonds, LE1F, Gobby: August 3, Glasslands, $10
We’ve been feeling L.A.-via-Vancouver producer Blood Diamonds’ rave-y jams at Refinery29 for quite some time. And with tracks like the Charli XCX-featuring “Grins” and the recent Grimes-collab “Phone Sex,” it seems like he’s only getting better. Also on the bill is New York rapper LE1F, whose recently-released “Wut” is one of the best tracks this summer.
Friday, August 5, 8:30 p.m., Glasslands 289 Kent Ave (between South 1st and South 2nd streets), Brooklyn, New York 11211; 718-599-1450.
