On the scene

This one's gonna be fun to pour over.

While the real estate market is not what it once was, one thing in Brooklyn is booming - music.

This week's New York Magazine takes a look at Brooklyn's "sonic boom," complete with a feature on one of the borough's biggest acts, Dirty Projectors (pictured), their top 40 songs from local acts, and the voices in the blogosphere that matter.

Of course, the best part about music is hearing it. Here are their picks for the best upcoming shows from Brooklyn acts (culled down to just the Brooklyn-based gigs for you):

Pterodactyl, Fiasco at Death by Audio, November 13
The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Crystal Stilts at the Bell House, November 14 Awesome Color at Glasslands Gallery, November 15
Dirty Projectors at Music Hall of Williamsburg, November 19 and 21 (sold out)
Miles Benjamin Anthony Robinson at the Bell House, November 19
F--k Buttons at the Market Hotel, November 27
The Big Pink, Crystal Antlers, Von Haze at Music Hall of Williamsburg, December 4
