Concert Calendar: Sept. 14 to Sept. 20

Every week (Tuesday?), I'll do a rundown of notable concerts in New York over the next seven days. Couldn't do it without Oh My Rockness, BrooklynVegan or Resident Advisor, so check those guys out. Times are from those sites, actual set times may vary.

Tuesday, Sept. 14

6:30: Reggie Watts, Naomi Shelton & Gospel Queens play in Fort Greene Park, Free.

Reggie is hilarious. I haven't been to the Park for any shows, but that area of Brooklyn is great, tons of good restaurants.

Official Site: Reggie Watts

7 pm: Blonde Redhead's Penny Sparkle listening party at (Le) Poisson Rouge, Free.

Presumably just a preview of the album (live show was a few weeks back), but I've heard it's great.

Official Site: Blonde Redhead

7 pm: Neon Trees play an in-store set at the Apple Store in Soho, Free.

Can't say I know anything about this band, but the Apple Store is a nice venue, if generally crowded.

9 pm: Greg Davis, Ben Vida, Geoff Mullen, Lussuria play at Zebulon, Free.

Don't know the bands, but Zebulon is one of those cool little Brooklyn venues that I've been meaning to check out.
