2015 Fall Arts: Ten Fall Concerts

AV's music editor's top ten must-see shows this fall

Edge Fest 2015

Edge Fest 2015 returns to the Outer Harbor on September 12th for an epic concert featuring Rise Against, Modest Mouse, Coheed and Cambria, Our Lady Peace, Sheepdogs, Highly Suspect, Made Violent, and BOOTS.

Of Montreal

Atlanta’s Of Montreal are probably one of the most interesting glam outfits of our day. From their eclectic theatrical live shows to their trippy album artwork, it’s pretty obvious that their September 14th concert at Asbury Hall will be a performance you won’t want to miss.

Mikal Cronin

An active musician in punk 7 garage bands in his teen years, Mikal Cronin formed Moonhearts with friends Charles Moothart & Roland Cosio. As the band began winding down, Cronin released his debut solo album in 2011 and has been going at it ever since. He’ll be at Mohawk Place on September 15th.

The Aveti Brothers

Hailing from Concord, North Carolina, these real-life brothers will be heading to Artpark on September 19th. The Avett Brothers combine bluegrass, country, rock, punk, and honky-tonk to create the unique sound folks have quickly come to adore


Back in 2008, Worries began as a punk super group, the original lineup including Lauren Denitzio of The Measure, Mike Catalono of Hunchback, and Justin Sullivan of the Babies. These days, however, the punk collective has mainly become the focus of singer-songwriter Denitzio. The group just released a new LP, Imaginary Life, over the summer and they’ll be kicking it off at Sugar City September 23rd.

Shilpa Ray

The Brooklyn goth-rockabilly singer Shilpa Ray has got it all: she’ll rip your heart out, rock your socks off, and make you weep. She’s been performing in dirty DIY venues all over NYC since the mid-00s and on September 28th, she’ll be hitting things off at Mohawk Place.

Toro y Moi

Chazwick Bradley Bundick aka Toro Y Mois’s music falls under the “chillwave” genre. It’s a style of music that utilizes effects processing, sampling, and heavy filtered vocals, all with troublesome melodies. He’ll be rolling through to the Waiting Room on September 29th.

Paul McCartney

I’m going to go right ahead and say that Paul McCartney was the best Beatle. While George went off the spiritual deep end and John got in bed with Yoko after the breakup of the Beatles, Paul was all about the music. Strapping his Höfner bass and looking for a place to play. The secret to longevity may lie in his ability to collaborate and plug into the latest music zeitgeist. Sir Paul McCartney will be playing First Niagara Center on October 22nd.


It’s been 21 years since their formation and H20 are still showing the hardcore world how it’s done. They have a new album Nothing to Prove, coming out in early October and you can bet it’ll be fast, loud and straight-to-the-point. We’ll see you in the circle pit on November 15th at the Studio @ Waiting Room.


Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness

Seven albums, three bands, and 15 years into his career, Andrew McMahon continues to reinvent and reinvigorate his music. The Southern-California singer/songwriter’s self-titled release for latest musical endeavor finds McMahon spreading his wings into new sonic and thematic territories while retaining his penchant for deeply personal lyrics and confessional medodies. Make sure you catch him on November 27th at the Waiting Room.
