I’d never really thought of it before, but my friend Justine Giordano said she believed “Hotel California” was about drugs, and I said I think it was about ripping off Warren Zevon, which it was of course, but it is more a Cali light of day nightmare or rather an extended metaphor for listening to the blasted song: you can checkout anytime you like but you can never leave. The Eagles are performing the entire album at Madison Square Garden on Friday and Saturday. I’ll be there on Friday, look up, no further up… yes, that’ll be me.

Monday – Andrea Bocelli – Metropolitan Opera House

Monday, Tuesday – Mr. Bungle – Brooklyn Steel – Caveat emptor, it is the lead singer of Faith No More’s band

Tuesday – The Used – Gramercy Theatre – I know you want to check out the Gramercy but ask yourself this: do you want to check out a band whose latest single is called “Paradise Lost, a poem by John Milton”?

Wednesday, Thursday – Tove Lo – Brooklyn Steel – Man, I love this woman: “Bikini Porn” is the most fun of the entire year! The girl who invented lady wood!

Wednesday – Songwriters Under the Covers with Victoria Shaw With Guests: Songwriters Shelly Peiken, Chely Wright, With Rising Stars Carly & Martina  – Iridium
