Things are slowing down a bit in New York as the summer draws to an end, but there are still some great shows to look forward to over Labor Day weekend and beyond. Here's this week's edition of Live Catch, Beware Of The Blog's guide to live music in WFMU's New York and New Jersey broadcast area.
This year's Columbia University back-to-school concert is free, outdoors, and open to the public, unless it rains. So if you wake up on Saturday morning and the sun is shining, head up to their campus at 2pm to catch performances by Neptunes-affiliated rappers Clipse and blogger-favorites Vampire Weekend. Later on Saturday evening, you can catch Acid Mothers Guru Guru--a band featuring members of Acid Mothers Temple and Krautrock legends Guru Guru--at the Mercury Lounge.
