Brooklyn's getting a new music festival this year, Escape Music Festival (courtesy of Balearic Entertainment), which happens from October 11-12 on Pier 9 at Degraw St and Van Brunt St. The festival is planning to host "30 dance music & indie/electro rock acts on two stages over two days and nights," and the phase 1 lineup includes Placebo, Yeasayer, The Crystal Method, Ra Ra Riot, ASTR and others, along with DJ sets from STRFKR and Neon Indian. Early bird tickets are on sale now.

UPDATE: We found even MORE
As mentioned, Thursday (9/5) is Fashion's Night Out. Basically another excuse to throw a party (in the name of bringing money and attention to fashion), the evening has become music-oriented in the last few years with bands playing stores all over New York City. There's a lot of stuff going on, including the Azealia Banks / DJ Cosmo performance at M.A.C. Soho we already told you about; plus Icona Pop and Maria Minerva at Urban Outfitters; Matchbox Twenty (!?!) at Bloomingdales; Haim at Topshop; La Sera at Helmut Lang; We Were Promised Jetpacks at Rockefeller Center; and Cyndi Lauper at Manolo Blahnik, just to name a few.
Below is a list of all the shows we could find with basic details and links where applicable/helpful. All shows are free and open to the public unless otherwise noted. Many have free food and booze as well. For more into visit the Fashion's Night Out website. Let us know what we missed, in the comments.

Yacht at South Street Seaport, Aug 2010 (more by Chris La Putt)
Yacht will play what promises to be a wild night at the Beekman Beer Garden on August 30. (Hopefully not this kind of wild.) The duo will headline what's being called Full Moon (yes it's a full moon that night), a party that also features Modular's Sneaky Soundsystem, Gigamesh, Tesla Boy, and FIXED DJs JDH & Dave P. There will also be "dazzling visuals" and "fire dancers." That sounds exciting. Could be a fun way ring out the summer. Tickets for that show are on sale now, and the flyer is below.
In addition to the Full Moon party, Yacht will keep themselves busy in August with a few festival dates as well as a few shows opening for Hot Chip in the Pacific Northwest. All Yacht tour dates are listed below.
