Good Shows: Feminist Punk, Norwegian Soul and, Um, ‘Intensindie’

Here’s what’s good in live music this week.

Leeds-based indie rock outfit Kaiser Chiefs have hopped the pond to promote their new album, Education, Education, Education & War.

Panorama Fest Stranded Everyone On an Island With NIN, Tribe, Tame Impala and More

Panorama returned for its second year, bringing a massive crowd to Randall’s Island for a maze of interactive tech installations, a trippy video dome, food vendors, a pop-up record store by Rough Trade, a ball pit by Macy’s(?), and, oh yeah, an eclectic array of live music. This year’s headliners ran the gamut from soulful crooners Frank Ocean and Solange on Friday to dance-rock heavies Tame Impala on Saturday to Lollapalooza throwbacks A Tribe Called Quest and Nine Inch Nails on Sunday. In between, highlights included Alt-J with an awesome stage show, French electronic rock duo Justice with a set that blew the power out Beyonce Super Bowl-style, and the Parlor stage, which brought bone-rattling Funktion-1 sound to New York dance acts like Tim Sweeney and Mister Saturday Night.
