Eight Ways To Enjoy Live Music This Fall

<p>There's a lot of live music happening in the city <em>every season</em>, but here's what we're checking out this Fall.</p>


<p>Let's start out this Thursday. Do we lap up Yuck's crunchy scuzz and ear for harmony or treat them as cheap Pavement rip-offs? Whether you think they're prophets or plagiarists, Yuck will be <a href="http://www.musichallofwilliamsburg.com/event/55465">taking over the Music Hall of Williamsburg</a>, and you can watch it go down for just 15 bucks.</p>


<p>CMJ is just around the corner, and for now we'll recommend checking out Trash Talk (bring your ear plugs—it'll get ragey) at one of <a href="http://www.ohmyrockness.com/search.cfm?searchterm=trash+talk&amp;x=0&amp;y=0">their many shows</a> while in town. Including a free show on October 22nd (<a href="http://www.truetilldef.com/">RSVP here</a>)... though we recommend shelling out 10 bucks for <a href="http://www.popgunpresents.com/cmj2011/">this True Panther show at Glasslands</a>, where you'll also be able to check out Tanlines.</p>



Celebrate Halloween early this year, on October 27th, Permanent Wave Presents a Halloween Riot Grrl Cover Bands Show. Amy Klein and The Blue Star Band will be performing as Bruce Springsteen (from his Riot Grrl era?), Claire's Diary will be performing as Le Tigre, Mindtroll as Salt-n-Pepa, Wojcik as The Cramps, EULA as Blondie, and Delta Hotel as That Dog. This will all go down at Williamsburg's Death by Audio, and you can get more details here.


Get your Lamp Rock on at Le Poisson Rouge on October 28th. A Celebration of Music & Literature will bring together Glen Hansard (The Swell Season) , Bryce & Aaron Dessner (The National), Doveman, Laurie Anderson, Sam Amidon, Bell X1, Iarla Ó Lionáird , Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh, Martin Hayes, Joseph O'Connor, Colum McCann and Roddy Doyle. The night will cost you $35, and will benefit Fight Words Creative Writing Centre. If you aren't familiar with Sam Amidon yet, remedy that now:


Remember Belly? On October 28th, Tanya Donelly (Throwing Muses/The Breeders/Belly) will be performing with Michael Hearst, of One Ring Zero; Rick Moody, novelist and member of Wingdale Community Singers; Hannah Marcus, songwriter, and also of Wingdale Community Singers; Claudia Gonson and Sam Davol, both of Magnetic Fields; and Carrie Bradley, of the Breeders and Ed's Redeeming Qualities. This will all go down at Joe's Pub, and tickets are on sale for $20. Note to Belly fans, however, don't expect this:



<p>Bob Mould fans, the musician will be in Brooklyn on November 3rd playing music <em>and</em> reading. That's double the Bob for your bucks! Tickets are $20, and the show will take place at the Bell House in Gowanus. <a href="http://www.thebellhouseny.com/calendar.php">More details there</a>.</p>


Clap Your Hands Say Yeah are back with a new album, and they'll be hitting Webster Hall on December 7th for their first major NYC show in years. Get your tickets now. Here's a teaser of their new stuff:


Chris Cornell has made his way to Carnegie Hall, and will be playing sans Soundgarden at the legendary venue on November 21st, with tickets going on sale this Friday for $65, $57.50, $35. Cornell has his own solo thing going on, but we might shell out the cash if we were promised a throwback to his Temple of the Dog days:
