NYC’s Best Shows This Week (We’re Talkin’ Jay-Z & Justin!)


Zomby, DJ Assault: Output, July 18, $20.
Anonymous electronic producer Zomby has made a name for himself jumping between genres with an uncompromising blend of jungle, UK garage, bass music, and more. His Output show comes on the heels of his massively ambitious recent double album, With Love.

Thursday, July 18, 10 p.m., Output, 74 Wythe Avenue (between N. 11th and N. 12th avenues); Brooklyn; No phone.

Mikal Cronin: MoMA, July 18, FREE with Admission,
MoMA Nights is an ongoing series where up-and-coming indie rockers serenade museum patrons for the low price of a museum ticket. This week, it's sun-drenched garage rocker Mikal Cronin, whose wistful strumming is perfect for their sculpture garden at dusk.

Thursday, July 18, 6:30 p.m., MoMA, 11 W. 53rd St. (between Fifth and Sixth avenues); (212) 708-9400.


Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake: Yankee Stadium, July 20, $64.
J.T. and Hov are billing this show as the "Legends of Summer" and we've got to hand it to them — there's really no better way to describe themselves. With two of the best artists in the world playing one of their biggest shows ever, this is a concert you'll associate with summer '13 for years to come.

Saturday, July 20, 7 p.m., Yankee Stadium, One E. 161st St; Bronx, NY; (718) 293-4300.
