Live Through This: rock nyc Top Concert Picks Week Of January 28th, 2018
In December 2017 the great rocker, poet, and multi-media culture maven Marla Mase performed an early version of her “MIracles Lost And Found -A Rock ANd Roll Rumination” for an invitation only audience (my review here), and last week it made its premiere at White Eagle Hall on Jersey. This Tuesday, the spectacular show makes its way to New York City at The Nuyorican Poets Cafe at West 3rd street. It is a theatrical cum musical cum spoken word performance art and play by any means necessary show that must be seen on Tuesday, January 26th, 2019
Monday – Indoor Pets, dubé – Mercury Lounge – UK power punkers visit town.
Tuesday, Wednesday – Bring Me The Horizon plus special guests Thrice & Fever 333 – Manhattan Center Hammerstein Ballroom – Bring Me The Horizon’s amo is state of the art hard rock, meaning it is heavily electronic. Both Thrice and Fever 333 are among the best rock bands out there.
