The xx, Poliça: Radio City Music Hall, September 23 and 24, $64.10
Darkly romantic threesome, The xx will hit the stage at Radio City accompanied by the similarly sexy sounds of Poliça. Hearing the British band's cavernous sound echo through the storied venue should be an enchanting experience.
Tuesday, September 23 and 24, 8 p.m., Radio City Music Hall, 1260 Sixth Avenue (between 50th and 51st streets); 212-247-4777.
Atoms For Peace: Barclays Center, September 27, $49.50
Even a Thom Yorke side project merits a gigantic show, as is apparent from Atoms For Peace's upcoming gig at Barclays. While Atoms is a different beast from Radiohead, the act's intricately produced future-pop should make Yorke fans very happy nonetheless.
Friday, September 27, 8 p.m., Barclays Center, 620 Atlantic Avenue (at Flatbush Avenue); Brooklyn; 212-359-6387.
Massive Attack and Adam Curtis: Park Avenue Armory, September 28, 29, and 30, $60
Massive Attack's Robert Del Naja teams up with filmmaker Adam Curtis for a massive art-meets-music spectacle at the Park Avenue Armory. The piece puts the audience amidst imagery of global conflict over the last 30 years as Massive Attack soundtracks the visual journey. Sounds intense.
Saturday, Sunday, and Monday, September 28, 29, and 30, 8 p.m., Park Avenue Armory, 643 Park Avenue (between 66th and 67th streets); 212-616-3930.
