This is Sludge? Not quite but who cares when Poppy’s pop-metal multimedia album I Disagree will blow your kneecaps off. The Youtuber producers weird stretch videos full of gothic elements and strangeness, and her songs are extremely addictive rad very mixed messages with an industrial edginess. She is at Brooklyn Steel on Thursday.

Tuesday – Ladysmith Black Mambazo – State Theatre – legendary African pop band

Thursday – An Intimate Evening with Midge Ure – Iridium – Ultravox guy

Thursday – IL VOLO: The Best of 10 Year – Radio City Music Hall – High low culture

Thursday – Calexico and Iron And Wine at Webster Hall – Calexico have the better beards, Iron And Wine the better singer

Thursday, Friday, Saturday   – deadmau5 / CUBE V3 2020 Tour – Avant Gardner

Friday  – Tanya Tucker – Town Hall – No, the the great return album While I’m Alive should have been much better (I know it won the Grammy, and…?), but the change to see her on stage is worth studying…

Friday, Saturday – Ripe, Phoney PPl – Webster – Boston seven piece

Saturday – Rex Orange County – The Pony Tour – the bedroom pop guy from the UK has streams in the multi 100Ms, but what can he do on stage?

Saturday – Mayer Hawthorne – MHOW – soul brother

Saturday – Live from Here With Chris Thile – The Town Hall – The guests are  Andrew Bird, Jia Tolentino, Tom Papa, and Sarah Jarosz – I caught Sarah opening for Steve Earle a coupla years ago and was verily impressed.
