NYC Popular Music Concerts: Fall 2012

Madison Square Garden

Ask any music lover why they chose to live to New York City–and it’s because almost everyone you will ever want to see live will pass through at some point or another (and probably multiple times). New York is the best place for music, so why not take advantage? Here is a list of popular (and not-so-popular) musicians that will be playing in New York City this semester. Also, get a feel for the styles attracted by specific venues, and if a certain place is really hitting your vibe, check out their website.

If you spot a musician you love on the list, don’t miss what could be the concert of your lifetime.
