out on the weekend

This Week’s Concerts, From Kanye West to Billy Idol

CMJ Music Marathon wrapped up Saturday night, but the big story this weekend came from Pitchfork’s rival #Offline Festival at the Brooklyn Bowl, where Kanye West showed up unannounced for a potent mini-set. It was the cherry on top of a spectacular-live-music-weekend sundae, which featured sets from Billy Idol, Blood Red Shoes, Chapel Club, Drake, Elton John, Elvis Costello, GZA, Johhny Flynn, Lucinda Williams, Modest Mouse, Neil Young, Ne-Yo, Takka Takka, the Suzan, and World Inferno Friendship Society. Click through, and then commence kicking yourself for not going to the #Offline Festival.
