What to Do This Week in LA, Miami, and NYC

  • Share

All eyes are on the fall fashion and arts season right now, but we’re in the mood to scream and shout instead. In New York, in the throes of Fashion Week, head to Citi Field to see an incredible lineup of bands. Los Angeles way, a glam rocker from the past is making a rare appearance at the Teragram. Miami, understandably, is a different case post-Irma. We’ll give you some ideas on how to help.


This Friday, hit the opening day of the Meadows Music & Arts Festival at Citi Field. Why? Because the three-day event features major headliners, including Future, Jay-Z, TV on the Radio, Blood Orange, Erykah Badu, and dozens more. What a diverse lineup, and a great way to rock in the intoxicatingly crisp fall season.


This Tuesday, take a trip back in time to the Teragram Ballroom where ‘70s Brit rock band Mott the Hoople’s Ian Hunter will be performing. This dude is 78 now, but all the alternative bands learned from him. And if we’re lucky–as he has in the past–he’ll play an homage to David Bowie, who he side-manned for during the Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars tour. You can decide if this rock legend is wearing a wig or kept it through all those golden years.


Hurricane Irma churned its way through the Caribbean and up the western coast of Florida this weekend, leaving devastation in its wake. Millions have been impacted. If you would like to help out in some way, the New York Times has broken down the best organizations to give to at this time. You can read more here.
